MORNING, UNITED FANS
Paul Pogba is so delighted with Cristiano Ronaldo’s impact that he is tempted to extend his Manchester United stay beyond this season.
And Barcelona are tipped to join AC Milan and West Ham in pursuing Pogba’s midfield team-mate Jesse Lingard.
That’s the pick of the transfer gossip around Old Trafford as United warm up for Saturday’s Premier League clash at Leicester.
It’s claimed Pogba loves the spotlight shifting from him to Ronaldo since the legend’s deadline-day return.
And it’s thought that could help persuade the in-form Frenchman to consider rejecting PSG, Real Madrid and old club Juve.
But former United and Three Lions defender Gary Neville reckons starting Ronaldo means United can’t play a pressing game – as the Portugal superstar has never worked hard enough when up front.
Meanwhile, Lingard has returned from England duty to even greater speculation over his Old Trafford future.
The 28-year-old is expected to turn down a new United contract, paving the way for January talks with foreign suitors and a free transfer move next summer.
Finally, the Red Devils will name Richard Arnold as their new executive vice-chairman to succeed Ed Woodward later this year.
