    TOP POG

    Manchester United plan to make Paul Pogba the highest-paid player in the Premier League with a new £104MILLION deal, writes DANIEL CUTTS.

    The France star, 28, is going into the final 12 months of his contract and United are willing to offer him a staggering £400,000 a week over the next five years.

    The Red Devils are desperate to keep midfielder Pogba and do not want him to go into the new season without him tied down.

    Old Trafford chiefs are now set to put the bumper new terms on the table – a huge increase on his current £290,000-a-week salary.

    His new pay packet would eclipse the £375k a week which United team-mate David de Gea earns.

    ‘UTD & LIVERPOOL WERE SUPER LEAGUE DRIVING FORCES’

    Barcelona chief Joan Laporta claims Manchester United and Liverpool were the ‘real founders’ of the controversial European Super League.

    The football world was stunned in April when 12 of the continent’s top clubs – including the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’ – announced they were forming a breakaway division.

    The closed-shop project would have replaced the Champions League and guaranteed annual participation for its ‘Dirty Dozen’ founders.

    However, a furious fan backlash prompted nine members to swiftly withdraw, leaving just Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus in the ESL.

    But despite looking like one of the main guilty parties, Barcelona president Laporta insists that English giants United and Liverpool were the original orchestrators of the ESL.

    Laporta claimed: “Liverpool and United were the real founders of the Super League.

    “Uefa threatened and was demagogic. The clubs have still not paid the compensation for leaving.

    “The Super League project is alive. It will be the most attractive competition in the world, and it will be based on meritocracy and solidarity.”

    ENGLAND’S ‘YIKES!’ TO DYKES

    Scotland hardman Lyndon Dykes claims England did not like it up ’em when they collided at Wembley on Friday night.

    The Aussie-born striker made his intentions clear right from the off when he clattered Luke Shaw in the first minute of the cross-border clash.

    And England’s spiky reaction to the physical approach left Dykes convinced he had rattled Gareth Southgate’s men.

    He said: “It set the tone when I smashed into Shaw and I think that a few of the boys from the England team didn’t really want it.

    “It was right from the kick-off and it was up to me to win the first challenge and I’ve taken him out as well, so it was a good start for us.

    “It wasn’t deliberate but I caught him with my knee on his leg and I knew he didn’t like it.

    “Shaw didn’t say anything but the referee tried to make me say sorry after I’d got him.

    “The ref had actually pulled me in the warm-up before the game had even started and tried to warn me about my headers and stuff.

    “But if the ball is there to be won I’m going to challenge for it and that’s what I did.”

    UTD TO RESIST POGBA EXIT WITH HUGE PAY OFFER

    Manchester United plan to make Paul Pogba the highest-paid player in the Premier League with a new £104MILLION deal.

    The France star, 28, is going into the final 12 months of his contract and United are willing to offer him a staggering £400,000 a week over the next five years.

    The Red Devils are desperate to keep midfielder Pogba and do not want him to go into the new season without him tied down.

    Old Trafford chiefs are now set to put the bumper new terms on the table – a huge increase on his current £290,000-a-week salary.

    His new pay packet would eclipse the £375k a week which United team-mate David de Gea earns.

    United will wait until after the Euros with France, before finalising the structure of his new terms.

    Pogba has been in talks with agent Mino Raiola over the last year on what his plans are for the future.

    He could demand huge wages and a hefty signing on fee if he was to become a free transfer next summer.

    The £89m superstar revealed earlier this week no agreement had been settled with United yet. But SunSport understands that could not be far away, and the early noises between both camps have been positive.

    MY HAZ-BEEN FEAR

    Eden Hazard fears he will never be the same player again after an injury ravaged two seasons with Real Madrid.

    The two-time Premier League winner at Chelsea will start his first game in the Euros for Belgium against Finland hopeful he can regain some form.

    The 30-year-old has suffered various muscle injuries of late but it is his ankle that he has the biggest worries about going forward.

    Hazard said: “I have broken my ankle three times and I don’t know whether it will ever be the same again.

    “It will not be like it was ten years ago when I was starting out.

    “I know if I am fighting fit exactly what I can do on the pitch and show what I am made of.

    “But I have been injured a lot.”

    Hazard has made just 30 appearances out of a possible 76 in his two seasons in his underwhelming time in LaLiga.

    ‘POGBA FOR VARANE SWAP TALK’

    Manchester United are prepared to offer Paul Pogba to Real Madrid in exchange for Raphael Varane, according to reports.

    The France defender, 28, has been on United’s radar for some time and is said to be one of the club’s top targets this summer.

    Previous managers Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho both wanted to bring Varane to Old Trafford.

    Ed Woodward was even prepared to spend £100million on the defender in 2018, but never came close to striking a deal.

    But Varane now reportedly prefers a move to United over PSG, and his representatives are keen to hold a meeting with the Red Devils.

    And according to AS, via the Express, United could offer up Pogba in order to get a deal over the line.

    United fear Pogba will not agree a new contract and leave on a free next summer.

    The club had previously placed a £150million asking price on the midfielder to ward off interest from Juventus and Real Madrid.

    Talks opened over a new contract for Pogba earlier this month, while the Italian press claim a swap deal involving Cristiano Ronaldo is also on the cards.

    ROONEY MISSES ULTIMATE UTD TOURNAMENT XI

    Manchester United stars have shone on the international stage down the years.

    Ryan Giggs may have never made it to a tournament with Wales, but plenty of other United greats have.

    The Red Devils are well represented once again at Euro 2020, with the likes of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford hoping to sprinkle their stardust on the biggest stage.

    Prior to the tournament, United themselves compiled an XI of players that have thrived for their countries while turning out for the Red Devils.

    There’s no place for the likes of Wayne Rooney or Paul Scholes – so let’s take a look at who DID make their cut.

    JAY-MAKER

    Heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua has called out his next opponent… Manchester United star Jesse Lingard.

    Thankfully AJ doesn’t want to meet the winger in the boxing ring, with the two agreeing to do battle on video game FIFA.

    Lingard, 28, was the first to pipe up by tweeting: “So Anthony Joshua thinks he’s king of the ring and FIFA!

    “Well I’m gonna show him June 21 at 11.30am UK time as part of the world’s biggest charity eSports festival Gamers Without Borders

    “Lets see who’s the real heavyweight champ.”

    Gamers Without Borders is a charity aiming to distribute the Covid-19 vaccine to underdeveloped countries.

    Several celebrities have agreed to get involved in the scheme, including Joshua and Lingard.

    AJ couldn’t believe the audacity of Lingard’s tweet, responding: “No chance, Jesse Lingard [followed by a laughing emoji]. See you there.”

    RAMOS OPTIONS NARROWING TO OLD TRAFFORD?

    Manchester United have received a boost in their pursuit of Sergio Ramos – with rivals City reportedly ruling themselves out a move for the Real Madrid legend.

    AS claims Ramos was offered to the Premier League champions earlier this month on a free transfer.

    But Pep Guardiola rejected the opportunity to land Ramos despite losing Eric Garcia to Barcelona.

    It’s claimed that City plan on keeping hold of new Spain international Aymeric Laporte, who has been linked with an exit.

    Pep already has John Stones, Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake at his disposal.

    And with Fernandinho also able to operate there, City will not be presenting Ramos with a contract.

    That means United could have a clear run at landing the iconic defender, 35, after his shock Bernabeu departure was confirmed this week.

    Ramos is believed to want a two-year contract on wages worth £200,000 a week. Those demands also saw Paris Saint-Germain drop out of the race to sign him.

    And with Ramos already ruling out a return to Sevilla and a controversial Barcelona switch, United could be his only option this summer.

    TOON UP WILLOCK HUNT

    Newcastle could offer Arsenal Freddie Woodman in a possible deal for midfielder Joe Willock.

    According to Chronicle Live, Arsenal are looking to add an English goalie to their home grown quota.

    UTD DON’T NEED RICE

    Manchester United should NOT sign West Ham star Declan Rice, according to club legend Nicky Butt.

    The former Red Devils midfielder believes Scotland international Scott McTominay is just as good as his English contemporary.

    Speaking to Ladbrokes, Butt said: “I think Man United are solid enough in midfield.

    “I keep hearing things about Declan Rice, but is he a better player than Scott McTominay?

    “I’m not sure, I think with McTominay, Paul Pogba and obviously Bruno Fernandes, we [Manchester United] are in a good place in the middle of the park.”

    JOSE CLOSING ON RUI

    Jose Mourinho is closing in on his first signing as Roma manager after Rui Patricio reportedly agreed a contract with the Serie A club.

    The Portuguese boss has been keen on his compatriot for much of the summer.

    Rui Patricio could leave Wolves after three years at the club

    The pair share the same agent, Jorge Mendes, which is perhaps why personal terms have been agreed without the clubs agreeing a fee.

    Roma will now negotiate a price with Wolves to seal the move, though a £6.8million bid has already been rejected.

    Wolves are looking for £10.3m-£12.8m for the goalkeeper, according to Sky Italia.

    And if Patricio is sold, Wolves will reportedly attempt to sign Olympiacos shot stopper Jose Sa, according to Fabrizio Romano.

    Patricio, 33, is currently at Euro 2020 with Portugal, but is seemingly ready to depart Wolves after three years in the Premier League.

    Meanwhile, Mourinho is also believed to be keen on signing Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka.

    WALES SNEAK RUNNERS-UP SPOT

    Wales survived a tense 45 minutes in BOTH Group A finale games to clinch runners-up spot on goal difference and reach the Euro 2022 KO stage.

    Ethan Ampadu’s red card left the Dragons clinging to just a 1-0 defeat against impressive group winners Italy, with Wales keeper Danny Ward inspirational

    Two-goal Xherdan Shaqiri spearheaded Switzerland to a 3-1 defeat of Turkey that put them level with Wales on four points.

    But the Welsh went through with a plus-on GD, compared to minus-one for the Swiss.

    HARTLEPOOL WIN AMAZING PLAY-OFF

    Torquay's Brazilian keeper Lucas Colovan headed a stoppage-time leveller – only for Hartlepool to return to League Two after a penalty shootout.

    Gulls' defender Kyle Cameron had headed goals disallowed either side of Luke Armstrong's first-half opener for Pools in an incredible National League play-off final at Bristol City.

    But Colovan took the clash to extra time by rising to nod home after the ball was crossed back in following a cleared corner.

    However, Torquay's Matt Buse missed a sudden death penalty as National League runners-up Torquay missed out on joining Sutton United with promotion.

    GUNNERS HUNT WHIZKID SANCHEZ

    Arsenal are interested in signing teenage defender Aron Sanchez, according to reports.

    The 18-year-old has impressed in the Peruvian top flight and will be easier to sign than a lot of European players due to new Brexit transfer rules.

    According to football.london, Sanchez – also known as Jose Sanchez – has been offered a trial at the Emirates.

    The centre-back has enjoyed a remarkable rise in the last 12 months, breaking into Academia Cantolao’s team and making 20 appearances in the Peruvian Primera Division.

    Sanchez is also on the cusp of becoming a full international, earning a place in Peru’s provisional Copa America squad before being cut.

    Arsenal are believed to be looking to South America for talent after new rules were introduced following Brexit to make it harder to sign players from second tier European leagues.

    LIVERPOOL 'SIGN ISSAHAKU'

    Liverpool have completed the signing of midfielder Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, according to the selling club's chairman.

    The Premier League giants are believed to have paid £1.5million for the Ghanaian wonderkid.

    Steadfast FC's chairman Haruna Iddrisu claims Liverpool have signed Issahaku on a five-year deal and loaned him to Portuguese champions Sporting Lisbon.

    It is believed Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen pulled out of a deal to sign the player and the sale has made the club more than €1m.

    Iddrisu told Football Ghana: "When I started negotiation for Abdul Issahaku Fatawu’s move to abroad, it started from more than €1m and this means if we get corporate sponsorships, we can do better.

    "We need to do more to make our football attractive and by doing that we get more hands-on board to sponsor our football because on weekends, football is the business everywhere so I am pleading to the corporate world.

    "I am doing Steadfast for the love of football and for the people of my home town."

    UTD WORRY IT’S PAUL OVER

    Manchester United are reportedly fearing that Paul Pogba will turn down a new contract and walk away for free next summer.

    The Frenchman arrived back at Old Trafford from Juventus in 2016 in an £89m move but only has 12 months remaining on his deal.

    United are desperately trying to convince Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola to sign a new package after they were forced into triggering a one-year extension in his current agreement.

    However, those attempts to persuade him appear to have become deadlocked.

    Now The Mirror states United are becoming increasingly worried Pogba will run out his contract and leave for nothing at the end of next season.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to get into any public spats with the outspoken Raiola.

    But United have allegedly ‘made it very clear’ they would sell Pogba this summer if he has no intention of penning fresh terms.

    A source told Football Insider that the Hammers are weighing up a move for Edouard as they look to provide depth up front.

    Edouard has previously attracted attention from a host of big European clubs, including Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund.

    The Hammers are also looking at Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham, who finds himself out of favour in West London.

    POSH 'N PECS

    Cristiano Ronaldo and partner Georgina Rodriguez have made a splash online with their incredible physiques.

    Ronaldo, 36, left Euro 2020 organisers fuming earlier this week, when he removed a Coca Cola bottle from his desk at a press conference.

    Cristiano Ronaldo dazzled fans with his ripped physique

    Juventus aim to beat Arsenal to Manuel Locatelli by offering £26million plus Radu Dragusin in exchange, reports say.

    The Sassuolo midfielder, 23, showed his capabilities on Wednesday by scoring twice in Italy’s 3-0 win over Switzerland.

    Arsenal have suffered a blow in the transfer chase for Manuel Locatelli

    The Gunners have been tracking the star following his impressive campaign in Serie A.
