Get all your Man Utd news and transfer gossip below…
MARC MY WORDS
Marcus Rashford has revealed he prefers to play on the left-side of attack rather than centre-forward.
The Manchester United and England star said: “When you are on the left, you can create a lot more things on your own, giving that little bit more to the team.
“Whereas when you are playing up front, sometimes you are isolated and need someone in midfield who can find passes for 90 minutes of a game, so you can disappear in games sometimes as a number nine.
“When I transitioned to a number nine when I was younger, that’s the bit that I struggled with as I was always someone who wanted to express myself on the ball.
“When I started playing number nine, I realised that you don’t see the ball as often as you do in other positions.”
GOOD MORNING UNITED FANS
Alan Shearer believes United need at least three signings in the next window and Harry Kane, Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho would be ideal targets.
And SunSport can reveal Old Trafford bosses believe they have England superkid Jadon Sancho in the bag.
But they accept signing James Maddison is all but over with the England ace on course to sign a bumper Leicester extension.
Former Old Trafford hero Wayne Rooney has weighed in on the chase for Kane – declaring the England skipper would be a 'perfect fit' in the North West.
Rooney said: “His biggest strength is finishing and he strikes the ball so well that from 20 yards or closer he should be looking to hit it whenever possible.
“Harry is a classic No 9, the closest I've seen to Ruud (Van Nistelrooy). If I were building a team, he's the one I'd start with. Harry Kane: there's my No 9. Then I'd build the rest around him.”
Man Utd believe they have England superkid Jadon Sancho in the bag.
The Borussia Dortmund ace is understood to have agreed almost every detail of a move to Old Trafford — down to the small print.
Chelsea also want Sancho, 20, but he is keen on joining Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, three years after leaving City.
SunSport understands the length of Sancho’s contract, his salary, bonuses and a huge buyout clause have been sorted out over months of secret talks.
United must now finalise a fee with Dortmund — which is set to become a record fee for a British club.
NIC OF TIME
Arsenal have to act quickly if they are to avoid losing United target Pierre-Emerick Aubamyang on a free transfer like they did with Aaron Ramsey, says Charlie Nicholas.
Former Gunners midfielder Ramsey joined Serie A champions Juventus on a free transfer last summer after 11 years at the Emirates and now club legend Nicholas warns the same could happen again with their star striker.
In recent months 30-year-old year old Aubameyang has been heavily linked with a move away from Arsenal, even though he has been a huge hit for the club since arriving in 2018 from German giants Borussia Dortmund for £56million.
Nicholas said: ”I would say to him [Aubameyang], is it money, is the salary you’re looking for? Is that what we’ve got to do to keep you?
”Because if he says yes, then Arsenal should do the deal, and that means come when the season ends or when we’re available to do transfers, then one or two sales will more than justify what his financial package may be.
SIGN ON DOTTED LINE
Jadon Sancho’s switch to Manchester United or Chelsea could be scuppered, by a bumper new £167,000-a-week contract at Borussia Dortmund.
According to reports, it would make him the second-highest paid player at the Bundesliga club behind Marco Reus and on a par with Mats Hummels.
Sancho has been outstanding this season, with 17 goals and 19 assists in all competitions and was valued at over £100million before the coronavirus pandemic.
Not bad for a player who walked out of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City for nothing nearly two years ago.
Dortmund are keen to maximise his value and, according to Bild, the German club are exploring the option that he would not be sold for the value they were hoping for a few months ago if he did leave at the end of the season.
