    FANFARE

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted Man Utd's form will improve upon the return of fans.

    He said: “Well, I think we want fans in safely and surely

    “There must be a way we can get more and more fans in quickly.

    "I know our club, we have looked at it many, many times and we're ready to give a lot more people than the 2,000 or 4,000 [permitted].

    “So you know we've got a big capacity here. I don't think there are very many that enjoy football more without fans.

    "The quicker we get fans back in, the better the football will be.”

    RAI TO GO 

    Mino Raiola says Paul Pogba is likely to leave Manchester United next summer after admitting ‘it’s hard to do top deals in January’.

    Raiola boomed last week that the France international, 27, wants to leave Old Trafford for pastures new.

    Despite Raiola’s outburst and Pogba’s total silence on the subject, the midfielder was then given a bizarre start in the 0-0 draw with Manchester City on Saturday.

    But with just 18 months remaining on his current contract, Pogba’s second spell at the Theatre of Dreams looks to be coming to a certain end.

    Raiola revealed: “Pogba will have a great future.

    “In England, they’re very sensitive when you talk about Pogba. I’ve just expressed my thoughts. 

    “I’ve said that Paul can leave in the summer, it’s hard to do top deals in January.”

    SAINTS WILL-ING

    Southampton are ready to step-up their efforts to land Brandon Williams on loan from Manchester United.

    The Saints failed in an attempt to bring the England U21s star to St Mary’s during the summer window.

    They wanted him to provide competition for both Kyle Walker-Peters and Ryan Bertrand, with the 20-year-old’s versatility enabling to play both right and left-back.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer blocked that move several months ago – but that has not put off the South Coast outfit.

    As Sun Sport reported last month, Southampton are still keen on signing the defender.

    And The Telegraph have back up our story by claiming Saints are ready to make another offer to the Red Devils for the youngster.

    The arrival of Alex Telles at Old Trafford has provided a further obstacle for Williams.

    INCE-ING EVER CLOSER

    Paul Ince claims it would be best for Manchester United if they dumped Paul Pogba next month.

    The France international, 27, is in the spotlight once again following comments made by agent Mino Raiola declaring his time at Old Trafford is up.

    Ince told Stadium Astro: “The best thing for Manchester United is for Paul Pogba to leave.

    “I actually thought when they signed Van de Beek, that they were preparing for Pogba to leave.

    But they clearly aren’t as Van de Beek didn’t get on against Man City, which is embarrassing for me.

    “I don’t envisage him being at the club by the summer. He’s got to go, he wants to go. I think it’s best that both parties part ways."
