  • JOO LOSE

    Superagent Kia Joorabchian was outbid on a £2million horse by the son of billionaire ex-Manchester United shareholder John Magnier.

    A battle of Premier League proportions over coveted mare Beach Frolic took place on Tuesday.

    Joorabchian, 49, who is a representative for football stars such as Arsenal duo Willian and David Luiz plus ex-Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho, was in the market to land the nine-year-old female horse.

    Beach Frolic, the mother of superstar horse Palace Pier, was in such high demand that the auction started at a whopping £1m.

    However, the hammer came down on a winning bid of £2.2m from Coolmore stud's Michael Vincent Magnier.

    Michael is the son of Irish racing tycoon John, who was the biggest shareholder in United during the tenure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

  • 'HE'S EXPLODED'

    Bruno Fernandes "lacked tactics and intensity" in his early 20s and few backed the now-Manchester United hero to succeed, a former team-mate claims.

    Ex-Italy keeper Emiliano Viviano, who was with Fernandes at Sampdoria and Sporting Lisbon, says the Portugal midfielder, 26, initially struggled in Serie A.

    And as Fernandes prepares for United's home clash with PSG tonight, Viviano told TMW Radio: "I was one of the few who supported him.

    "Bruno has always had everything, only that he arrived in Italy and he lacked tactics and intensity.

    "He learned it and now it has exploded, also because he has everything: right, left, technique but also an incredible run.

    "He is a technical leader, which Manchester United perhaps lacked."

  • MONEY GO ROUND

    Manchester United will need to fork out £91million to land transfer target Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, according to reports.

    After missing out on his signature in January, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is plotting ahead to make another move for the star striker in 2022.

    The teen sensation has a £64m release clause in his contract that comes into effect in 18-months time.

    But Mundo Deportivo write how that does not include fees paid to his family, agents and other commissions.

    Haaland's agent Mino Raiola is to pocket a huge chunk of the £18m set to be paid to those brokering the deal.

    And the remaining £9m will be paid to the Haaland family, including his dad and former Man City player Alf-Inge, once he finally makes the switch.

  • SEALED WITH A KISS

    Robin van Persie has revealed how he was repeatedly kissed by Diego Maradona - including on his LEG.

    Manchester United great Van Persie said he idolised the Argentine legend, who died last week aged 60.

    He wrote in De Telegraaf: "As a young player I was inspired by Maradona, and that has never left me.

    "[When I first met him in Dubai] he shouted 'Robbie, Robbie!' to me. He ran up to me, gave me a kiss, embraced me and said how good he felt.

    "He made me feel much less tense. Through his interpreter he started a great conversation.

    "He began with my left leg, saying: 'Robbie, you have my left leg. We both have a special left leg.'

    "He also took hold of my left leg, and planted a kiss on it."

  • ITALIAN JOB

    Diogo Dalot has given his verdict on his loan spell at AC Milan.

    He said (via MilanNews): “It’s been a great few months in terms of adaptation. Italy is similar to Portugal.

    “The club is amazing, I’m happy to be here.”

  • BACKED TO THE HILT

    Manchester United players arrived at The Hilton hotel on Wednesday ahead of a massive showdown with Paris Saint-Germain.

    A place for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in the last-16 of the Champions League can be secured with a win or a draw at Old Trafford.

    Ahead of the game, Edinson Cavani was spotted entering The Hilton, situated just minutes away from the stadium.

  • BRU BEAUTY

    Bruno Fernandes has scooped his FIFTH Manchester United player of the month award following his standout showings in November.

  • GREAT SCOTT

    Scott McTominay has admitted that he wouldn't have made it as a footballer at any club other than Manchester United.

    He told Pro Direct Soccer: “I genuinely don’t think it’s sunk in.

    “I think its something that I will look back on at the end of my career.

    “It’ll sink in as a special time in my life and sometimes you need to reset and think about it. My family are very humble, they won’t let you get ahead of yourself. They are always pushing me behind the scenes.

    “When I was 16, I was really small. I couldn’t get near the team and I was injured for two years in the youth team.

    “When I look back on it, if I knew in my mind how difficult it is to get to here, I would have written myself off.

    “If I was at any other football club, I wouldn’t have been a footballer.”

  • KAN HE DO IT

    Manchester United managerial target Mauricio Pochettino could be parachuted in to save Real Madrid's season if Zinedine Zidane gets the sack.

    The French coach is on the brink after another tough night in the Champions League.

    Should ex-Spurs boss Poch be handed the reins, he may try and make a definitive mark on the Madrid side.

    Here's how they could line-up...

  • MARC HIS WORDS

    Thomas Tuchel has praised 'annoying' Marcus Rashford ahead of their Champions League reunion on Wednesday night.

    He said: "We value him very much when he plays in England and not Parc des Princes, honestly, because (him scoring against us) gets a little bit annoying.

    "The guy is a very young adult who takes his responsibility on and off the pitch very impressively.

    "I have met him as an opponent three times and every time I've met a calm and humble guy and a nice person, which is amazing. I like this mixture a lot.

    "For me personally, the sporting side is clear - he's a big threat with his speed, with his ability to score, with his determination and his finishing.

    "He's very precise, taking shots inside and outside of the box. He is super rapid on counter-attacks and strong in the air with headers.

    "He's had a big impact and it's nice to see guys like him from the academy having such a big impact in a big, big club like United."

  • BERNA-BYE

    Zinedine Zidane has just FOUR games to save his job at Real Madrid, with the club eyeing up another swoop for United target Mauricio Pochettino, according to the Spanish papers.

    Los Blancos slipped to a horror 2-0 defeat away to Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday night.

    The result left them THIRD in their Champions League group, facing the barely-believable prospect of slipping down into the Europa League.

    Real Madrid also sit fourth in LaLiga, seven points adrift of league-leaders Real Sociedad, after their loss to Alaves at the weekend.

    Marca claim Zidane now has just four matches to save his job.

  • CAR CRASH

    Colombia have sacked national team boss Carlos Queiroz after a poor start to World Cup qualification.

    A ticket to Qatar was in huge doubt after Ecuador inflicted a heavy 6-1 defeat on their South American rivals last month.

    That followed a 3-0 defeat to Uruguay, leaving Colombia seventh in the ten-team CONMEBOL table.

    On Tuesday night, the Colombian FA confirmed the departure of the former Manchester United assistant and Real Madrid boss.

  • EURO EXTENSION

    The proposed changes to the Champions League could see each team play TEN times in the group stage - which could spell the end of the League Cup.

    Uefa are set to meet this week to discuss a radical shake-up for Europe's top competition.

    The Champions League will see a new format in place from the 2024-25 season, with a number of options currently on the table.

    And it's believed Uefa's current favourite method is the so-called 'Swiss system'.

    In this more complicated scenario, teams would be assigned TEN opponents in one 36-team league.

    All teams would be seeded, with a computer programme carefully selecting clubs of differing strengths to ensure parity across the board.

    Under this system - first designed for a chess tournament held in Zurich in 1895 - all teams would play five times at home and five times away.

  • A-MAD SKILLS

    Manchester United fans have been left licking their lips at the prospect of Amad Diallo's arrival at the club in January.

    The Ivorian teenager, 18, agreed to join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in a £37million, deadline day deal in the summer.

    However, as part of the deal, Diallo is to stay at Atalanta - where he has played since 2015 - until January.

    And he enjoyed a riveting cameo off the bench during the Italian side's 1-1 Champions League draw with Midtjylland on Tuesday night.

  • BEST FOOT FORWARD

    Cristiano Ronaldo has fended off competition from Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski to win the 2020 Golden Foot award.

    The 35-year-old has been named as the 18th recipient of the prestigious trophy that can only be won once during a player's career.

    To be in contention for the award - that was introduced in 2003 for Europe's standout performers - footballers must be at least 28 years of age.

    The winners are then invited to leave a mould of their footprints on the 'The Champions Promenade' in Monaco.

    Ten players are shortlisted for the trophy by international journalists, with the general public then voting for their winner in an online poll.

    And it is United legend Ronaldo that received the most votes from fans across the world after he finished the 2019/20 season with 37 goals in 46 games.

  • WHITE HOT

    Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham are keeping tabs on Brighton star Ben White, according to reports.

    The Seagulls centre-back, 23, has looking in superb form this season despite being distracted by Leeds and Liverpool's transfer pursuit in the summer.

    Jurgen Klopp is set to rekindle their interest in White, despite being put off by Brighton slapping the huge price-tag on him.

    But with starting centre-backs Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez both suffering long-term knee injuries, Jurgen Klopp could opt to splash the cash.

    However, the Reds chief will face competition from Man Utd, Chelsea AND Tottenham, according to Sky Sports.

  • HOW DID HE MISS?

    Former Manchester United star Ashley Young endured an embarrassing moment to forget last night.

    The veteran left Old Trafford for Inter Milan in January and has impressed with his displays for the Italian giants.

    But he will never want to see this miss again!

  • BEEKY-BOO, I SEE YOU

    Donny van de Beek denied he is unhappy at Manchester United over a lack of playing time.

    And the £39million summer signing added he will gladly play anywhere across the Red Devils midfield.

    Ahead of United's crunch Champions League tie with PSG, he insisted: “I just work hard every day and I know that I can give the team something extra and help a lot. I was just patient.

    “I think they understand it already because they're world-class players, so there's no difference (compared to Ajax).

    “I play with new team-mates and you need to understand each other. We understand each other. I can play that kind of style with them.

    “Also in Ajax before, I played in a lot of different positions. I played No8, No10 and even No6 so I am used to it and playing a lot of different positions.”

  • MORNING, UNITED FANS

    Ole Gunnar Solskajer has no worries about Edinson Cavani against his old club PSG tonight - while Donny van de Beek insists he is happy with his own United role.

    Cavani could soon be banned for three games over a ‘Gracias negrito’ Instagram post but has apologised for what he says was a misunderstanding.

    And Old Trafford boss Solskjaer, seeking a victory to seal top place in the Champions League group, said: “It's special for him to play against his old club where he's the top scorer.

    "So that'll affect him mentally but from knowing him that'll give him energy.

    "He is so professional and experienced. He will work on his mindset and be ready.” 

    Half-time sub Cavani's two scoring headers and an assist clinched United's fourth straight win, 3-2 from 2-0 down at Southampton on Sunday.

    And the Uruguay striker seems likely to start, meaning fit-again Anthony Martial returning only on the bench.

    But Cavani's summer replacement Mauro Icardi is out for last season's Champions League finalists, who are level on points with group leaders United but adrift on goal difference by seven.

    Meanwhile, ex-Ajax superstar Van de Beek, whose first Prem start was last weekend, claims he has no problems with his limited game time so far and is ready to play anywhere in midfield.

    He said: “I can play the number six, eight or ten. I’m used to it. 

    “I know I can give the team something extra so I just have to work hard and be patient.”  

    Finally, Rennes' 18-year-old midfielder Eduardo Camavinga reportedly might be available for £45million despite an initial £68m valuation.

    The three-cap Frenchman has been linked with United, Chelsea, Juventus and Real Madrid.

  • BEEK KEEPS HIS PECKER UP

    Donny van de Beek denies he is unhappy at United as he struggles for game time.

    And the £39million summer signing from Ajax added he will gladly play anywhere across the Red Devils' midfield.

    Van de Beek, 23, only earned his first Premier League start in Sunday's comeback win at Southampton.

    The Holland star is battling with Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay, Fred and Nemanja Matic for a central place under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    But speaking ahead of United's crunch Champions League tie with Paris Saint-Germain, he insisted there are no frustrations.

    Van de Beek said: "Oh no, I just work hard every day and I know that I can give the team something extra and help a lot. I was just patient.'

    "I think they understand it already because they're world-class players, so there's no difference (compared to Ajax)."

  • ICARDI OUT FOR PSG

    Mauro Icardi is out of PSG's frontline at Old Trafford tomorrow night - with fellow Argentine Pablo Sarabia missing from midfield.

    Former Inter Milan star Icardi's absence in the Champions League group tie is a sizeable blow.

    But Sarabia has found himself behind Idrissa Gueye and ex-United ace Ander Herrera in the fight for a regular place.

    Germany playmaker Julian Draxler faces a late fitness test.

     Icardi has an adductor problem while Sarabia reportedly has muscle pain.
