Sheffield United DEFEAT, Sancho LATEST, Lingard to West Ham loan, Gabriel Veron interest


Man Utd missed the chance to go back to the top of the Premier League table after being stunned at home by Sheffield United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side lost 2-1 against the Blades, as Oliver Burke scored late in the second half courtesy of a delcted strike.

Next up for United is an away trip to Arsenal on Saturday – a ground they haven’t won at in the top-flight since 2017.

In other news, Paul Pogba has told Rio Ferdinand he is putting his contract situation on the backburner in his quest to win silverware.

He told BT Sport: “I’m on contract, I’m here. I’m enjoying myself. Everyone knows I have one year left. I will speak to the club and see what’s going on.

“For now my objective and goal is to win something. All I’m thinking about is winning. I’ll give it all my energy and my all to help the team the most.

“I want to win something that’s all I’m focused on, the contract is not important, it’s to win.”

Meanwhile, Facundo Pellistri is set to depart the Theatre of Dreams this week with both Club Brugge and Alaves reportedly keen to take him on loan.

The Uruguayan winger, 19, arrived from Penarol for £9million on deadline day in October but has only played for the club’s U-23 side.

Now Goal claim both the South American and his Red Devils coaches have agreed he should go out elsewhere to get more match-action to continue his development.

And finally, Manchester United and Manchester City will reportedly go head-to-head in the race to sign Palmeiras striker Gabriel Veron.

Barcelona were keen on the 18-year-old star but have pulled out as they cannot compete financially.

The Manchester teams want the transfer to go through this month but have the teenager stay in Brazil on loan until at least the summer, according to Sport.
