    STILL HOPE

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly still hopeful about signing the likes of Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland – despite Man United's previous bungled attempts.

    The two players remain top of his wishlist while he had to settle for second-choice signings in a disappointing transfer window.

    But ESPN report that, while Solskjaer has bene diplomatic in public, he has grown frustrated at the lack of action and still wants the club to prioritise Sancho and Haaland.

    The Red Devils boss met Haaland last December and United weren't too far away from getting the player in January, but withdrew due to agents fees.

    TV BOOST FOR FANS

    PREM clubs are today poised to agree to non-televised matches being available to all fans, Martin Lipton writes.

    But supporters will have to pay to watch with the matches only available through a special subscription service.

    Ever since the Prem’s restart in June, all matches have been available through one of the Prem’s four broadcast partners – Sky, BT, Amazon prime and the BBC.

    With fans locked out, the clubs felt they had no option to ensure supporters were able to watch their teams in action.

    But there are concerns that the two main broadcasters’ patience over the loss of their prized exclusivity is not boundless and that there could be a knock-on impact with the companies demanding a further rebate.

    Prem clubs already face having to pay back £330m over the next two seasons as a result of the pandemic and a further cut in income would be a savage blow.

    WE WANTED HIM FAC

    Penarol wanted to retain the services of Man United's new signing Facundo Pellistri, reports say.

    The Uruguayan club were keen to get their teen sensation back on loan until January but United weren't having it, according to Sports Mole

    The winger signed for around £9million on deadline day and Penarol vice-president Rodolfo Cantino had to back down when it became clear the 18-year-old could be spending some time in the United first team.

    He said: “We tried in every way but they argued that they wanted the player now. It's normal, when an European club buy a player, they travel immediately.

    “Pellistri goes straight to the first team. Going to play. In the negotiation they asked me if I could guarantee them if he was in the bubble because they need him. Then it will be a matter of the manager if he uses him.”

    BORUSSIA BAFFLEMENT

    Dortmund were left “baffled” by Manchester United's negotiating techniques, reports say.

    The two clubs were locked in talks over Jadon Sancho for most of the summer, with the England international eventually staying put after much speculation.

    What really confused the Germans was United's last-ditch loan bid for wing-back Nico Schulz, according to ESPN.

    The player's last start for Dortmund was in December 2019, and the Red Devils random attempt to get him at the end of the window left BVB chiefs questioning the credentials of their transfer team.

    WORTH STAYING UP FOR?

    United fans will get to see Alex Telles in the flesh for the first time since he signed – if they're willing to stay up.

    The new man's Brazil side take on Bolivia at 9.30pm in Sao Paulo, but that means it will be 1.30am UK time.

    So eager United fans are in for a late night if they want to watch their brand new left-back take to the field tonight.

    BEHIND THE SCENES CHAOS

    Man United is not a happy place right now with reports of despair before the players went off for international duty.

    The 1-6 humiliation at the hands of Tottenham was the nadir, but the Athletic also report halftime dressing room rows, a dissatisfaction with transfers and fears Harry Maguire may not be mentally over events in Mykonos which wrecked his summer.

    On the bright side for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he still has the board's backing.

    DISGRACE TO BADGE

    Roy Keane blasted Manchester United's flops for their dire Tottenham display.

    And the ex-Red Devils skipper reckons the players will cost Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his job.

    Keane said: “The performance against Spurs was disgraceful.

    “We've all had bad days in football but I thought literally it was a disgrace to the badge some of the players' performances, too many bluffers.

    “And ultimately I think they will cost Ole his job.

    “They players he's got there, yeah they will.

    “They threw the previous manager [Jose Mourinho] under the bus, they'll do exactly the same to Ole.”

    GOOD MORNING UNITED FANS
    Paul Pogba has reiterated he 'dreams of playing for Real Madrid one day' as he cast further doubt over his United future.

    He said: “I am at Manchester. We know that this has been spoken about a lot and I have not [spoken about it].

    “I heard a lot of noise that I was going to leave and I was going to leave to clubs left and right.

    “Today, I am still at Manchester United and I am fighting to try to take the club even higher.

    “We have all heard these things that have been said. What to respond?

    “Yes, all footballers would like to play for Real Madrid. Maybe it is a dream. It is a dream for me, why not one day?”

    Meanwhile, United could be beaten to the transfer of Josh King by West Ham.

    The Hammers are interested in the versatile Norwegian forward and are mulling over making an offer.

    King, 28, is into the last year of his contract at the Vitality.

    He is a former United player – but seemingly West Ham are the new favourites to land him.

    And finally, Edinson Cavani has revealed that he was left worried that he would have to retire if football remained shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    He told ESPN Argentina: “At one point I thought, 'What if this continues, am I going to play again?'

    “Or if I could even keep the life that I like a lot, with my country, on the pitch.

    “It is very nice to come to this club. It is a wonderful place.”
