    MORNING MAN UTD FANS

    Ole Gunnar Solskajer is ready to “exploit” the transfer market once coronavirus crisis has ended.

    Speaking to Sky Sports News, he said: “We want to be the best at everything, and of course now is a chance to spend more time, you discuss players, discuss plans.

    “There might be just a situation there where you can exploit, and I know that we at Man United we are one of the biggest, and the biggest, financially well-off.

    “I’m sure we are capable, when we get back to normality, that we can do the business that we want to.”

    The Red Devils look set to sell Paul Pogba in the summer, with the player reportedly the Red Devils' No1 priority.

    Spanish outlet AS claim this could be the summer in which the 27-year-old finally completes his dream move.

    And they could replace him with Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare with the 21-year-old a key target for United.

    Sport now claim that Liverpool and Chelsea are battling United for the signature of the youngster.

    Meanwhile, Jadon Sancho has been urged to snub United and stay at Borussia Dortmund for two more years by team-mate Marco Reus.

    Speaking to Bild, Reus said: “He should stay one more, maybe two years at Dortmund.

    “In my view, there is currently nothing better for him.

    “Then he can take the really big step, as an even more complete player who can continue to develop with us as a regular in the team.”

    And finally, Man Utd and Barcelona have reportedly joined Arsenal in the race for highly-rated Real Madrid youngster Cesar Gelabert.

    AS claims the 19-year-old Spanish attacking midfielder could make a shock exit this summer after failing to agree a new Bernabeu contract.

    CAPTAIN MARVELS

    Premier League captains have brokered a deal worth £4million to fund the NHS.

    The 20 club skippers have completed four days of talks to rubber-stamp the ground-breaking plan during the coronavirus crisis.

    Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson and Harry Maguire have worked closely on the deal, while Mark Noble of West Ham and Watford’s Troy Deeney will also help administer the scheme.

    The cash boost from the players has been done independently from both the PFA and the Premier League.

    The captains, who have been communicating via whatsapp, want the cash to go to local hospitals in their specific areas.

    But the amounts will remain anonymous as some clubs – and individual players – will be putting in more than others because there is such a difference in wages between sides in the Premier League.

    Each club captain has spoken to their players and taken note of pledges from team-mates. It will be at least £3m in total but it is hoped that £4m will be reached – although it could even be more.

    CUTS DEEP

    Serie A players including Chris Smalling, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku have agreed to to give up four months wages to help reduce the financial strain caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

    The Italian division has been suspended since the start of March, and like other major sporting events will not get back underway until completely safe to do so.

    The suspension has prevented clubs from taking in ticket sales and broadcasting revenue with the league already being impacted financially.

    In a bid to control costs during the COVID-19 outbreak, Italian champions Juventus announced yesterday they had reached an agreement with their players and coaches to implement a wage cut.

    And now Serie A followed as they confirmed all clubs have agreed to do the same, taking up to one third of a pay cut.

    CASH JOY

    Leeds stars will be getting a wage BONUS when the coronavirus crisis is over.

    Players have agreed to take hefty cuts on their salaries while the Championship season remains postponed.

    Along with manager Marcelo Bielsa, up to half of their wages have been deferred.

    But owner Andrea Radrizzani has offered them a 2 per cent raise when things get back to normal as a token of thanks.

    Leeds have already taken £1million off their £3m monthly wage bill.

    And players are said to be delighted by Radrizanni’s gesture during a tough time for the game.

    Leeds were top of the table when football was halted.

    And promotion to the top flight would have guaranteed £170m in the bank.
