Get all your Man Utd news and transfer gossip below…
HARRY'S HIGH HOPES
Harry Maguire has set himself a target of winning another Premier League trophy following his first taste of title success with Leicester.
The Red Devils skipper believes the club should aim higher than a top four finish next season.
United haven't won a Premier League title since the 2012-13 season when Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge.
The team are currently eight points behind third-placed Leicester who they paid £80million to for Maguire last summer.
Maguire told Sky Sports: “We don't want to be challenging for this Champions League spot, we want to be challenging for titles.”
RUN OUT OF LUK
Romelu Lukaku believes he and most of his Inter Milan teammates contracted coronavirus as early as January.
The former Manchester United star made the stunning claims in HLN, explaining that 23 out of 25 first-team stars all got sick during a week off at the start of the year.
He said: “We had a week off in January. We came back and I swear 23 out of 25 players were sick. No joke.
“We played at home against Radja Nainggolan’s Cagliari and after 25 minutes one of our defenders had to leave the field.
“He couldn’t go on and almost passed out. Everyone was coughing and having a fever. It also bothered me.”
Before he added: “We were never tested for corona at that time, so we will never know for sure.”
United can start getting excited at the prospect of Jadon Sancho and Harry Kane joining if these odds are anything to go by.
Betfair have priced up the prospect of both world football stars linking up at Old Trafford.
Sancho is ODDS-ON at 8/11 to be pulling on a United shirt before September 1 when the transfer window closes.
Kane is a 6/4 shot to be spearheading the United attack – which in itself is an extraordinary price.
Denis Irwin has claimed the Jesper Blomqvist tried to avoid Roy Keane for a while after his pass led to Roy Keane put in a tackle that saw him booked.
Keane missed the 1999 Champions League final after his stunning performance in the semi that saw United come from 2-0 down at Juventus to win 3-2.
It was the greatest performance of Keane's career, but overshadowed by missing the final – and it would be the only chance in his career to play in a Champions League final.
He probably would have missed it anyway, after getting injured in the opening minutes of United's FA Cup semi-final win over Newcastle.
Irwin said: “I remember Jesper Blomqvist was trying to avoid Keaney for a few weeks after that semi-final because it was his pass that led to the booking.”
Roma have reached an agreement with Manchester United and Arsenal to keep Chris Smalling and Henrikh Mkhitaryan on loan beyond June 30, according to reports.
The Premier League stars are both currently at the Italian giants for the season.
But with the 2019-20 campaign set to run well beyond the loan contract end date of June 30 due to coronavirus, clubs are facing a battle to keep hold of players on expiring deals.
Both players currently away on loan and stars with contracts expiring on June 30 face an uncertain future with the deadline for the season to be ended lifted.
Now reports claim Roma have reached an agreement with Man Utd and the Gunners to keep them until the season's real end – whenever that may be – say Corriere dello Sport.
The Serie A side currently sit fifth in the standings, with the season currently locked down.
