MANCHESTER UNITED are eagerly preparing for the return of club football once the coronavirus outbreak begins to subside.

On the transfer front, a move for Jadon Sancho remains firmly on the agenda while there could be exciting news regarding Jack Grealish.

Get all the latest news and gossip from Old Trafford here…


    Manchester United have made an approach for Arsenal hitman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to reports in Spain.

    Aubameyang’s future is undecided with the Gabon international entering the last year of his contract this summer.

    He has been linked with a move away with his country’s FA president even telling him to join a “more ambitious club”.

    And Spanish newspaper Sport say Aubameyang has already been approached by United along with Inter Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and most recently Real Madrid.

    It is claimed Arsenal will sell to alleviate their financial problems with the clubs waiting to hear a ‘final price’ for the 30-year-old.


    Jack Grealish’s move to United is virtually sealed.

    That’s according to Eurosport's Manu Lonjon, who is tipping Aston Villa’s uncapped England midfielder to be one of other first major transfers when the summer transfer window finally opens.

    And United are reportedly in “constant contact” with Napoli over long-term target Kalidou Koulibaly.

    The Serie A club are said to be resigned to losing the Senegal centre-back, 28.

    Meanwhile, Bayer Leverkusen strike starlet Kai Havertz, who has been linked with United and Liverpool, admits he wants to make the next “big step” up.

    The £70million-rated ace told Sport Bild: “I like challenges. For me, this also includes abroad.”

    Havertz, 20, has notched six goals and five assists in 22 Bundesliga games this season.

    Right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is following United team-mates like Marcus Rashford and David de Gea in making a massive contribution to the fight against the coronavirus.

    He spent the weekend packing 20,000 clinical PPE gloves that he himself paid for into boxes for doctors in his father’s homeland of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

    Wan-Bissaka said: “I’m fortunate. There are those who aren’t able to protect themselves as well or have access to certain things during this crisis.

    “It’s been great to give back. I know it’s not easy out there for them so it’s only right for me to help.”


    United legend Gary Neville warned the EFL faces an economic ‘horror story’.

    SunSport understands 15 hard-up clubs — three in League One and 12 in League Two — do NOT want to finish the season due to cash problems.

    That figure is rising as many owners fear they cannot pay wages if the campaign restarts in June.

    Neville, co-owner of League Two Salford, believes hundreds of players could end up out of a job and said: There is a horror story coming for many clubs if there aren’t reductions in costs.

    “Over 1,000 players in the Championship and Leagues One and Two are out of contract in ten weeks.

    “In League One and Two, 50 per cent of players are out of contract. That’s scary and clubs have not got the money to recycle them back into the game next season.

    “Clubs aren’t going to sign players and offer deals they did before. We’re not talking about £200k-a-week players — that’s the one per cent of players in the world.

    “We’re talking players on modest wages who’d face a real problem if their income stopped in June.”


    Manchester United are “finalising” Jack Grealish's transfer to the club, according to one reporter.

    Eurosport's Manu Lonjon broke the news on his Twitter account today.

    Grealish caused controversy two weeks ago by breaking coronavirus lockdown to party at a friend's house before crashing his Range Rover at 4am.

    But that appears not to have deterred Man Utd, who are said to remain determined to get their man.


    A growing number of Premier League clubs will tomorrow push for the season to be finished by June 30.

    Chiefs from the 20 sides will hold a video conference for the latest coronavirus crisis talks — including the first official discussions of a definitive end-date being put in place.

    Some clubs fear a delayed campaign into July could lead to legal mayhem over player contracts, with the only alternative being to declare the season null and void.

    One insider said: “Clubs are starting to take the view that if we go beyond June 30 – when player contracts end – we will be in chaos territory.

    “Fifa say clubs and players have the ability to extend contracts but there is nothing hard and fast legally to make that happen.

    “Everybody wants to see the season played out, of course we do.But how do you demand that players who are actually out of contract, who might be considering moves to teams they are going to be playing against, give everything?

    “You can’t. If the games aren’t finished by the end of June the sporting integrity of the competition could go out of the window.”
