    BOC TO THE FUTURE

    Dimitar Berbatov reckons Manchester United could do a lot worse than going for ex-striker Carlos Tevez, currently at Boca Juniors.

    The Bulgarian, who played with Tevez in 2008-09 said: ''Why not?!

    “When you have these loan deals it's good to get someone who knows the place, knows the situation and knows the fans.

    “In the dressing room, he was quiet, a bit like me, but that's not always important.

    “We all saw what he was like on the pitch, he would run like crazy, fight for his team, score goals and he would never give up until the final whistle and you could say that is what United need right now''.

    TOON TAKEOVER

    Newcastle are in talks with the Saudi Arabia state over a £340million takeover bid and a deal could be done within days, according to reports.

    Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman – who linked last year with buying the Red Devils – is heading up the purchase from the Saudi side alongside a group of investors organised by Amanda Staveley.

    According to the Wall Street Journal, a final deal between Mike Ashley and the Public Investment Fund could be done within days or weeks – but the tentative agreement could still collapse.

    Staveley was heavily involved with an attempt to take control of the St James' Park club in 2017 before walking away from the table.

    The takeover could be similar to the Abu Dhabi's acquisition of Manchester City in 2008 which has led to more than £1billion being pumped into the Citizens to make them into one of the best teams in the world.

    MAN DOWN

    Tranmere ace Paul Mullin hopes to pile on the misery for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a week after cheering his Kop idols to victory from the pub.

    The Scouser, 25, said: “As a kid growing up and supporting Liverpool, it’s brilliant to be facing Manchester United.

    “It will be a great day and I will try to express myself and score against them. I can’t wait for it.

    “Adding more misery to United is good motivation but, to be fair, I want to do it for the fans that are here at Tranmere. They’re the ones who come to support us every week.”

    EXCLUSIVE by Daniel Cutts

    United are set to make a last-ditch attempt to persuade Angel Gomes to a sign new treble-your-money contract.

    The 19-year-old attacking midfielder reps have held talks with sides in Spain and Italy, while Chelsea and Leicester have shown interest.

    United are desperate to keep hold of one of their prize assets, and are keen for him to pen fresh terms within the next few weeks.

    It is understood Gomes is on around £10,000-a-week at present, and the Red Devils would be willing to boost that to around £30,000-a-week.
