    Europe's biggest clubs are facing a whopping £2BILLION price for the Covid-19 pandemic.

    The analysis by football finance experts Deloitte lays bare the impact of the crisis on even the game’s elite giants.

    And one significant victim was Manchester United, who dropped out of the top three of Deloitte’s 'money league' for the first time since 2013.

    According to the Deloitte number crunchers, the immediate consequence of the virus outbreak was to knock £1.05bn off income for the leading 20 European clubs last year.

    But Deloitte expects 2021 will see a similar impact on TV revenues and with crowds not expected back in grounds until next season at the earliest - and even then likely to be limited - anticipates the total cost will exceed £2bn.

    Other Premier League sides in the top ten were Liverpool, whose £489.9m took them into the top five for the first time since 2001-02, with Manchester City sixth on £481.6m, Chelsea eighth on £411.9m and Spurs ninth with £390.9m.


    EXCLUSIVE - Man Utd are eyeing up a move for Hoffenheim midfielder Christoph Baumgartner.

    The 21-year-old has been hailed as one of Austria’s biggest talents for years – and is already turning heads in the Bundesliga.

    SunSport understands that United have been tracking Baumgartner closely with a view to bringing him to Old Trafford to bolster their attacking options.

    A bid in the summer is most likely, but with the player’s contract running out in 2023, his current price tag of £16m is only going to increase.

    And with Hoffenheim’s history of getting good value for money – such as £29m for Roberto Firmino and £40m for Joelinton – Old Trafford chiefs will be expecting tough negotiations.

    Several other Premier League sides are also interested, but United are leading the way for the player that has been dubbed the new Michael Ballack.


    Borussia Dortmund will consider offloading Manchester United transfer priority Jadon Sancho but NOT Chelsea target Erling Haaland.

    That's the verdict from reports in Germany - IF cash-strapped Dortmund miss out on the cash windfall of qualifying for the Champions League.

    The Bundesliga giants must finish in the top four but have slumped to seventh - increasing the risk of a flash sale in the summer.

    German newspaper Bild claim Dortmund would be willing to sell some of their bigger names if they do finish outside the Champions League qualification places.

    They are currently three points adrift of the top-four spot they need to earn £26.6m (€30m) from European football next season.


    New signing Amad Diallo is looking sharp in training.


    Man Utd lead rivals Liverpool and Chelsea in the pursuit of Jadon Sancho.

    That's according to bookmakers Betfair, who've installed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side as 5/4 favourites to collect the winger's signature.

    The Red Devils have a long-standing interest in Sancho having tried and failed to bring him to Old Trafford over the past 18 months.

    The 20-year-old was top of the Manchester club's list of priorities last summer too but refused to meet Dortmund's £108m asking price.

    However, United have been offered a glimmer of hope with German newspaper Bild reporting that Dortmund could possibly be forced to sell Sancho.

    It's said the Bundesliga giants, who are currently seventh in the division, will have a 'flash sale' if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.


    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed some fringe players could depart Man Utd this month in search of game time.

    Both Brandon Williams and West Ham target Jesse Lingard have been linked with moves away, and Solskjaer has refused to rule out the duo leaving.

    He said: "They’re still part of the club, part of the squad, training well. No deal has been struck for any of the players yet going out – still a little period left, of course.

    “There’s been many clubs interested in our players, so let’s see what happens.

    “For me, it’s also important to take our wishes and our plans into consideration but also the players of course because they are Man United people and players through and through.”


    Chelsea’s sacking of Frank Lampard could mean the end of their pursuit of Declan Rice.

    Eurosport claim that Lampard was unable to convince the board to sign Rice in the last window, despite insisting he was the player needed to balance the squad.

    Man Utd target Rice was valued at £70m and the report states that even if the price dropped to £50m the Blues hierarchy would not have been completely on board.

    But any savings from not pursuing the Rice deal would likely be put into luring other potential targets to the club.

    And Dortmund’s 17-year-old star Jude Bellingham is the man Eurosport believe could be top of Chelsea’s list.


    Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has reportedly deferred a portion of his £90,000-a-week wages as Derby boss to ensure players get paid.

    The Championship club is experiencing a financial crisis while it waits for a takeover by Sheikh Khaled’s Derventio Holdings to go through.

    A deal to sell the club was agreed by owner Mel Morris in November, with a transfer embargo currently in place.

    Morris is said to be reluctant to inject his own cash into the club ahead of the takeover.

    And The Mail report how manager Rooney has stepped in to help the Rams out.

    On a two-and-a-half-year contract, he has told the club that he will defer part of his salary to divert funds to his players.

    The squad’s December wages were not paid on time but Derby reportedly reimbursed players on Monday and have stated that January’s wages will go through on Friday as planned.


    Thomas Tuchel's imminent appointment at Chelsea will mean facing up to old PSG pal Edinson Cavani - a player he tipped for success at Manchester United.

    If the German is to launch a tilt at the Premier League title, overcoming Cavani's Red Devils will be vital.

    The coach said in October: "[United] have got a great personality.

    "With many of the biggest players of the game, it's the same with Edi. Very polite, almost a bit shy. Hard, hard worker.

    "He will be there in every training [session], first minute until last minute. Every game from first second until last second, you can totally rely on him.

    "He's living for goals, living for scoring. When he scores, when he has the confidence, he's one of the [best] number nines in world football.

    "Hopefully he will show [that], he can start to convince all of you. I have no doubt about that."


    Edinson Cavani has been credited with getting Mason Greenwood back on track.

    The teenager has suffered a dip in form this season scoring just once in 16 appearances before hitting the target in the 3-2 FA Cup fourth round victory over Liverpool on Sunday.

    Now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his time spent on the training ground with the veteran striking legend will start to pay further dividends.

    Solskjaer said: “We think Mason is going be very important in second half of the season but it's not just going happen by itself.

    “He scored against West Ham a while back as well and was expected to kick on. He's taken steps, he's grown, he's more mature and he's been training with Edinson Cavani for half a season.

    “He’s learning good habits, and whoever doesn't learn from players like him, or Bruno Fernandes or the players we’ve brought in, that's a pity.

    “I'm very confident that Mason will chip in good performances and with goals and assists.”


    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has thanked the Manchester United board for staying strong through difficult patches in his reign.

    Frank Lampard was dismissed on Monday after the first real tough period in his time in charge at Chelsea, winning just one of their last five in the league to slip down to mid-table.

    And the Norwegian said: "We knew we were going to have some rough and patchy periods and they stood strong.

    “I’ve had good backing from the club and the leadership has been very steady which I have been very grateful for because we have been through two or three bad spells of form, of course. 

    “Frank doesn't want any of us to feel sorry for him, I know his character and mentality and I’m sure he'll bounce back and have a very good managerial career.

    "He went through a patchy spell, a short spell, not long ago they were top of the league, it’s the first dip of form they really had under Frank so I’m a little bit surprised.”


    Marcus Rashford IS available for Manchester United's game at home to Sheffield United on Wednesday.

    The England star walked down the tunnel with five minutes still to play in the 3-2 FA Cup win over Liverpool on Sunday.

    But boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed a scan showed no major damage to Rashford's knee.

    The Norwegian said: "Marcus is available, yeah. He trained this morning. I think he tweaked his knee a little bit but should be fine.

    “We are looking strong, which is a good place to be in.”


    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is currently speaking to the press.

    News to come ahead of tomorrow's match against Sheffield United.


    Manchester United take on Sheffield United at Old Trafford tomorrow night in what could be a top vs bottom contest in the Premier League.

    But they may have to do so without Marcus Rashford.

    The England forward had to be replaced against Liverpool on Sunday after feeling pain in his knee.

    But Rashford, the two-goal hero of United's last clash with the Blades, may still make it in time for the match.

    Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "Marcus felt his knee but we'll have to do a scan.

    "Hopefully, it's not too bad but we'll see tomorrow."

    Solskjaer, 47, made a number of changes for Sunday's 3-2 win, but is likely to revert largely back to the tried and tested formula tomorrow.


    Charlie Austin has revealed how Manchester United turned down Virgil van Dijk - to sign Victor Lindelof.

    But it perhaps could have been different with former Southampton striker Austin revealing a chat he had with Van Dijk when the defender starred for the Saints.

    He told talkSPORT: "I remember at the back end of his Southampton career we were on the bench together at Chelsea away.

    "I asked him, 'Come on Virg, what’s going on? Surely Man United must have been in for you?'.

    "He told me, ‘You know what, Chaz, in the summer it was between me and Lindelof, and they signed Lindelof’.

    "I was like, ‘You are joking?’. I don’t know if anyone knows that. I couldn’t believe it, I was gobsmacked.

    "There was talk in the summer that he was going to go there, but they’ve gone and taken Lindelof instead."


    Tottenham have approached former Manchester United ace Angel Di Maria over a summer transfer, according to reports.

    The Argentine has started every game for Paris Saint-Germain since Mauricio Pochettino's arrival.

    But his contract expires in the summer, leading to speculation surrounding his future.

    It is believed that his compatriot Pochettino would like to keep him at Parc des Princes and Di Maria is keen to get an extension agreed.

    But according to L'Equipe, Spurs are attempting to lure the 32-year-old away from the French capital.

    Di Maria has been offered a pay cut on his current deal by PSG, although he is believed to understand why, given the current global crisis.

    PSG's No11 would like a two-year deal, in order to finish his career in Europe in Paris.


    Europe's biggest clubs are facing a £2BILLION price for the Covid-19 pandemic.

    The analysis by football finance experts Deloitte lays bare the impact of the crisis on even the game’s elite giants.

    And one significant victim was Manchester United, who dropped out of the top three of Deloitte’s 'money league' for the first time since 2013.

    According to the Deloitte number crunchers, the immediate consequence of the virus outbreak was to knock £1.05bn off income for the leading 20 European clubs last year.

    But Deloitte expects 2021 will see a similar impact on TV revenues and with crowds not expected back in grounds until next season at the earliest - and even then likely to be limited - anticipates the total cost will exceed £2bn.

    Barcelona remain top of the money table despite income dropping £111.5m to £627.1m, less than £200,000 ahead of bitter rivals Real Madrid.

    But United’s £119.1m fall, to £509m - a consequence of missing out on the Champions League - saw them drop below Bayern Munich into fourth place, although the Old Trafford club were still English football’s highest earner.


    Manchester United and Liverpool are battling to sign £3million-rated Derby wonderkid Kaide Gordon, according to reports.

    The versatile attacking midfielder, 16, has impressed Wayne Rooney in recent weeks and was handed his first-team debut against Birmingham in December.

    According to The Telegraph, Liverpool are the favourites to land Gordon ahead of United and Tottenham.

    The Liverpool Echo says talks are already underway and the reigning Premier League champions hope their record of promoting youth players into the first team will help convince Gordon to sign.

    An initial £1m offer from the Reds looks to be enough with the Championship club struggling for funds.

    The remaining £2m would be made up from add-ons depending on the England youth international's progression at Anfield.

    Gordon - born in October 2004 - cannot sign professional terms until later this year, the Echo report adds.


    Bruno Fernandes may have bagged the winning free-kick against Liverpool in the FA Cup - but the Portuguese ace is taking tips off Juan Mata in training.

    The Spanish midfielder and Fernandes practice their deadly set-pieces together at Carrington and it certainly seems to be working for the Red Devils.


    West Ham are set to complete the signing of Jesse Lingard after Manchester United agreed to loan out the midfielder.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer held talks with the 28-year-old last week amid another spell out the side.

    Lingard has only appeared three times this season, all in cup competitions, and has managed just one league goal in over two years.

    Therefore the chance to get much-needed gametime under old boss David Moyes is seen as appealing to the United academy product, according to The Times.

    West Ham are hoping to turn their good form of late into a serious push for European qualification.

    But attacking reinforcements are needed after the departures of Sebastian Haller and Robert Snodgrass.


    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly assured Donny van de Beek he will play more games this season.

    The Athletic claims the promise was made in the wake of the Dutchman’s impressive performance in Man Utd’s FA Cup win against Liverpool.

    Van de Beek has found himself mostly on the bench since his move from Ajax last summer.

    But Solskjaer has apparently told the playmaker to expect more chances in the starting XI.

    Meanwhile, Harry Maguire has tipped Axel Tuanzebe to be a future Man Utd captain.

    Maguire told the UTD podcast: “We have a lot of leaders in the dressing room, a lot of senior pros. And you don’t have to be a senior pro to be a leader.

    "Axel [Tuanzebe] is a leader, in the ways that he works and speaks in the dressing room. And he’s only a young boy, he’s still learning his trade – I’m sure he’ll go on to have an unbelievable career.

    Finally, Borussia Dortmund expect to sell Jadon Sancho this summer.

    Sport1 claims the Man Utd target will not be at the German club for the start of the 2021/22 campaign.

    United tried and failed to sign Sancho last year but refused to meet Dortmund’s £108million valuation.

    However, the Bundesliga giants need to balance the books to the tune of around £88m.

    And that could see United finally get their hands on one of their top targets.


    Bruno Fernandes admits if he was Donny van de Beek he 'would not be happy at all' with his playing time.

    Fernandes told MUTV: “Donny had a great game. Playing in the position I play, watching him he moves really good and played really well. It's important for us.

    "If I was in the position of Donny I would not be happy at all but the most important is doing what he does today, coming in and helping the team.

    "We have a really good squad and we have options. If you look at the bench and the first XI today and the ones at home we have a really good squad.

    "It will not be a problem if we change the team or someone is tired because we have really good players."
