    Brown on captain Maguire

    Speaking to the Express, Wes Brown has had his say on Harry Maguire being captain of Man Utd despite receiving much criticism last season.

    There have been rumours Maguire could lose the armband next season.

    Brown said: "The captaincy to me, obviously it’s a big deal but you just get on with it.

    "For instance, if he got it taken off him, he’ll be disappointed. Ultimately, he’ll want to show everybody he can do it.

    "There were a lot of players who had a bad season last season. But, as the captain, you will take a lot of stick and I think he understands that."

    Good morning Man Utd fans

    Manchester United wantaway star Cristiano Ronaldo has been ordered by the club he must report back for pre-season this week.

    Ronaldo has informed United of his desire to depart this summer after citing his wish to play Champions League football.

    But according to the Mirror, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has been told by the Red Devils he must report back to Carrington imminently.

    The report states that the star forward has been alerted that he has to be on the plane on Friday for their two-and-a-half-week pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia.

    United have declined to comment about Ronaldo's reported wish to leave the club.

    According to the Daily Mirror, the Manchester giants have refused to answer questions regarding the Portugal captain’s future.

    But United want to recoup the money they spent to sign the 37-year-old if they are to let him leave this summer, report The Times.

    The Red Devils paid Juventus £12.9million to bring Ronaldo back to Old Trafford, with add-ons potentially taking the deal to £17m.

    Napoli have entered the race to sign the him and could be willing to match United’s asking price.

    Bayern Munich could also view the Portugal international as a cheap replacement for Robert Lewandowski if the Pole is sold to Barcelona.

    Finally, United have made a breakthrough in the transfer market with Feyenoord star Tyrell Malacia set to become their first signing of the summer today.

    Malacia jetted into Manchester yesterday and went through the first stages of his medical.

    And should it all go to plan the left-back will put the finishing touches to his move – which will cost the Red Devils an initial £13m.

    Do no Ron

    Manchester United wantaway star Cristiano Ronaldo should stay put at Old Trafford, claims former Red Devils ace Louis Saha.

    Saha told BonusCodeBets: “It could go both ways, no one can guarantee anything apart from Cristiano. He’s the only one to answer that.

    “It wouldn’t be the right move for Man United to let him go because he’s such a big asset.

    “I can definitely see him continuing to keep doing what he’s doing best, which is scoring goals and helping his club get back to where it belongs.

    “He can still play a part under [Erik] Ten Hag, not only by scoring goals, but with his stature.

    “I’m sure the new manager will want to implement some new rules and new standards that fit with Ronaldo. Maybe not so much on the pressing side, but his work ethic and his desire to always be accountable.

    “Performance-wise, Ronaldo is up there with the best, he’ll drive the players that need confidence, like [Marcus] Rashford.

    “It’s a new manager, new rules, new atmosphere and I’m very excited”

    More on Ten Hag tactics

    Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has imposed zero tolerance on back passes.

    A United source said: “There has been a lot of attention on one- and two-touch passing drills where players must try to go forward.

    “If they go sideways or backwards too often he stops the game and the player is taken off for a minute or two.”

    Man on fire

    Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag issued a "total football" warning to his underperforming Red Devils: “Eat, sleep, play, repeat”.

    Ten Hag met the United squad for the first time on Monday but has already laid out precisely what he expects from his players.

    The Dutchman will not tolerate sideways and backwards passing — subbing off players in training who do NOT play forward.

    Players must improve on their fitness and "unacceptable" body language from last season.

    Dressing-room cliques are to be totally eradicated within the Red Devils.

    Youngsters will get their chance to impress Ten Hag and oust senior players.

    Mega-money stars’ medal hauls and salaries count for nothing in the 52-year-old's selection plans, only training performances

    Prem standing order

    Premier League clubs will get the go-ahead to open safe standing areas in their grounds from the start of the coming season, writes SunSport’s David Wooding.

    Ministers are expected to announce the success of a trial at five stadiums and invite all top-flight teams to introduce their respective sections.

    It will mean that fans will be able to stand to watch Prem or Championship matches for the first time in almost 30 years.

    Standing has been illegal in the two top divisions since all-seater stadiums were introduced in 1994 after the Taylor report into the Hillsborough disaster.

    But following a pilot scheme last season at Chelsea, Tottenham, Cardiff, Manchester City and Manchester United, all other top clubs will be give the all clear to follow suit.

    A final report on the government-commissioned trial seen by The Sun on Sunday says the sections delivered a positive impact on spectator safety and improved fans’ matchday experience
