Manchester United's new signing Radek Vitek has admitted that he can’t wait to get started at the Theatre of Dreams this summer.
He said: “It’s a surreal feeling. A move to United is the dream of a lot of guys who start playing football.
“I’m really looking forward to it. I admit I didn’t even believe it when I found out about their interest but now it’s a reality.”
SOG IT TO 'EM
Exclusive by Cliff Hayes: Mesut Ozil's super-agent has called for all Premier League stars’ representatives to join the bitter coronavirus wage war.
Dr Erkut Sogut — the man who negotiated Arsenal midfielder Ozil’s mega £350,000-a-week Emirates contract — insists agents should be included in the current tense pay talks between the League, the PFA, clubs and players.
He declared: “It is not easy for everyone but it’s time for the clubs to talk directly to the players and their representatives to solve this problem.
“This is what we are lacking right now. And the one thing that can be done is a deferral.
“That is a start, to say, ‘Let’s defer these payments to the end of the year or next year’.
“That is something players and clubs can agree quickly, so the clubs know they will have no cash problems and go on for the next three months. A deferral is a protection for everyone.”
Football is in trouble. Whether it’s concerned in private or wringing its hands in public, the landscape is challenging right now.
Clubs currently have no revenue streams, no means of income and the Premier League are faced with broadcasters who will want back £762million (around £38m per club) if games aren’t played.
So, surely the solution is simple? Elite players will help by taking pay cuts, reducing the obligations on their stricken clubs and potentially helping other members of the so-called Football Family.
The players’ union, the PFA, will enable the solution by preserving the here, now and future — right? Wrong!
It’s turning into a battlefield. Apparently players have “only” had three weeks to consider this and, come on, that’s not a reasonable amount of time?
I mean what can you do in three weeks? I know, build a 4,000-bed hospital in East London, perhaps?

GUEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH
Arsenal star Matteo Guendouzi has warned against football restarting until coronavirus “is taken off this world”.
He told French media outlet TF1: “For me, what I think is most important is to not start things up again, no games, no training, until this epidemic stops.
“What’s most important is everybody’s health, and not just in the football world, but in the medical world and the world in general. That’s really what’s most important.
“I’m in favour of nothing starting up again until this virus is taken off this world.”
Manchester United have secured the signature of highly-rated teenage goalkeeper Radek Vitek.
The Czech stopper, 16, will leave Sigma Olomouc for a scholarship at Old Trafford in July.
Vitek stands a whopping 6ft 5in and is said to be a top prospect for the future.
