    The FA confirmed: “Jadon Sancho will play no part in England’s forthcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Poland.

    “The forward picked up a minor knock in training earlier this week which ruled him out of the 4-0 victory in Hungary.

    “Following further assessment, the 21-year-old has returned to his club and is expected to recover in time for Manchester United’s fixture with Newcastle United on Saturday 11 September.

    “Gareth Southgate now has a 23-man squad at his disposal for Sunday’s match against Andorra at Wembley Stadium.”

    Jesse Lingard turned down a permanent move to West Ham to stay and fight for his Manchester United future.

    The England man enjoyed a stunning loan spell with the Hammers last season that thrust him back into contention for the Euro 2020 squad.

    Now, 90min.com is reporting that Lingard ‘made it clear to the club that he did not want to return to the London Stadium’.

    The 28-year-old apparently ‘communicated to joint chairman David Sullivan personally’ with his intentions.

    In just four hours following the announcement Ronaldo would wear the iconic shirt United’s online store surpassed the highest day of sales ever on a single sports merchandise site outside of North America.

    The club’s online shop is run by Fanatics, who work with more than 300 clubs around the world and top sports leagues.

    The first hour of sales alone surpassed the best ever full day of global sales for United Direct, the official club merchandise site.

    Ronaldo is set to make his second debut for United next weekend against Newcastle.

    Paris Saint-Germain will move to sign Manchester United target Erling Haaland if Kylian Mbappe leaves the Parc des Princes next summer according to reports.

    France international Mbappe told PSG last month that he wants to join Real Madrid.

    PSG rejected £130m and £200million bids from Real for the World Cup winner, who they risk losing on a free transfer at the end of the season.

    And the Parisians have reportedly identified Borussia Dortmund hitman Haaland as a replacement for the 22-year-old.

    But they are set to face competition from United if they are to land the prolific striker.

    BECK'S THOUGHTS

    David Beckham has praised his former Man Utd team-mates who have taken part in Soccer Aid.

    Gary Neville, Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes are all playing.

    He said: "I mean to be honest, when you look at someone like Scholesy, you never lose that kind of pass.

    "With Wayne, Wayne's always going to be dangerous on the ball and Gazza (Neville) has looked comfortable at the back with Carra.

    "But I think they're looking pretty good."

    MAN TO MAN

    Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo received a touching message from Brazil legend Pele after his return to Old Trafford, writes KOSTAS LIANOS.

    Ronaldo sealed a blockbuster comeback at United on transfer deadline day following a £21million move from Juventus and looks set to make his debut against Newcastle on September 11.

    Pele was very moved by Ronaldo’s homecoming statement as he knows a lot about home, having spent almost his entire career in Brazil with Santos before rolling credits at New York Cosmos in 1977.

    Although the Portugal international broke the 80-year-old’s record for most goals in official matches back in March, the two men still share a strong friendship.

    Pele said: “There is no better feeling than conquering the world and returning home. Always be happy, Cristiano.”

    After making the provisional squad, he failed to make the final cut. But Lingard did however feature off the bench in England’s victory in Hungary.

    Now, 90min.com is reporting that Lingard ‘made it clear to the club that he did not want to return to the London Stadium’.

    The 28-year-old apparently ‘communicated to joint chairman David Sullivan personally’ with his intentions.

    So it makes sense the Manchester United star, 36, bought a Gulfstream G200 twin-engine jet in 2015 for £20million.

    Originally named the 'Astra Galaxy', the G200 is capable of reaching a top speed of 560mph.

    Its range is up to 3,910 miles with four passengers in tow, so it's ideal for quick flights from his new base in England to hubs around Europe.

    But the G200 offers a generous seating configuration, and can fit as many as eight to 10 passengers for one flight.
