CEO opens door to Haaland deal, fans told £35m midfielder to be at Man United this January, United told they ‘would be lucky to sign’ £100m Prem midfielder

Lingard to stay, Haaland transfer boost given and United sent Rice message in Manchester United roundup…

Manchester United fans have been told that Jesse Lingard is set to stay at Old Trafford until at least the summer.

Lingard is currently out of favour at Manchester United and his contract is due to expire at the end of the season, where there are a number of clubs interested in a transfer deal

The 29-year-old was told by former United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he would feature regularly for the side this season, but he started just once under the Norwegian before he was sacked in November.

Lingard’s fortunes have not improved under Ralf Rangnick, who has also started the midfielder only once since replacing Solskjaer, and now there has been reports that he could leave the club this transfer window.

However, Sky Sports News’ Dharmesh Sheth has claimed that Lingard will probably stay at Old Trafford until at least the end of the season, he told Sky Sports: “It’s looking increasingly likely Jesse Lingard will see out his contract until the summer because if you do that, you are a free agent and you’ve got your choice of any European club that might want to do a pre-contract agreement with you, and, of course, any Premier League club who would be interested as well.

“As far as Lingard himself is concerned, when he came back after that successful loan spell with West Ham, I think he was given some sort of assurance by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he was in his plans, and it hasn’t transpired that way.

“He hasn’t started a Premier League game this season. He’s played 11 minutes of Premier League action under Ralf Rangnick.

“I just wonder whether Man Utd would want to sell him to West Ham, simply because if you look at the premier League table, West Ham are direct rivals to Man Utd for the top four.”

Manchester United are thought to be facing a battle to sign Declan Rice, according to reports.

Rice has developed into one of the best holding midfielders in the Premier League over the last few seasons and is destined to make a move to one of the big boys of the League.

It is no secret that United are massive fans of the player and have been linked with a move in previous windows, but considering Rice will not be leaving the Hammers until the end of the season, there will continue to be alot more rumours in the media regarding the man.

Chelsea and Liverpool are claimed to be ahead of the Red Devils in their bid to acquire the West Ham and England midfielder, but ex-Irons right-back Glen Johnson reckons United would be a good destination for the 22-year-old.

Johnson, 37, told “I don’t think Manchester United could get anyone better than Declan Rice.

“If he was available, I think Chelsea or Liverpool would be in front of them anyway.

“Those players only come around once.”

If United do make a move for Rice, they need to make sure that they do not pay silly money for the player because he may be good, but he is not worth that £100 million that the Hammers reportedly value him at.

However, he would help take that United midfield to the next level, he really is top-class. So United should make a move and try to get a deal done before their rivals get the offers in.

This United side should be signing the best players in the Premier League, and Rice is fast becoming one of the best midfielders in the English game

Borussia Dortmund CEO has admitted the club will have to start planning for life without Manchester United target Erling Haaland in the summer.

Haaland is one of the most talked about, in-demand and dominant players in Europe right now and there has been a whole load of rumours suggesting that he will be playing at one of the biggest clubs in Europe at the end of the season.

Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, PSG, Liverpool, Barcelona and Real Madrid are just a number of clubs that have been linked with the man, who cannot stop scoring for the Bundesiga outfit.

As of June, a clause in his contract means he will be available for just £64million and it is likely to start a bidding war amongst the biggest clubs in Europe, and now Dortmund chief Joachim-Hans Watzke admitting it will be ‘difficult’ for them to hold on to their prized asset.

“Who would give one of the best strikers in Europe away in the winter market if they didn’t have to?’ Watzke said in an interview with Der Spiegel, as per Marca.

“He will not leave in January. Dortmund is still in three competitions and we want to compete with the best teams.

“Of course it’ll be difficult to retain him. However, we want to and we’ll try.

“Haaland will not leave in January, but in summer it will be difficult to keep him.”

Haaland will become one of the very best strikers in the game, even the best. But he needs to make sure that the club that he joins next is the right one for him, as he may struggle to adapt.

However, £64 million is not alot of money to pay for a player that already has the ability to score 30-goals a season, it will be interesting to see just where he ends up at the end of the season.
