Solskjaer hints at MORE signings, Varane first Carrington training session, Haaland update


Man Utd start the week top of the Premier League after their thumping 5-1 win over fierce rivals Leeds United on Saturday.

Rivals and defending champions Man City started their campaign off with a 1-0 loss against Tottenham Hotspur.

Blackpool have made a late bid to hijack Manchester United babe Ethan Laird’s loan move to Swansea.

The Seasiders want the versatile defender, 20, to play right-back or centre-half for the season in the Championship.

Laird played for Swans boss Russell Martin at MK Dons last season.

Man Utd, Man City and Chelsea are all interested in signing Senegalese wonderkid Pape Matar Sarr.

The 18-year-old is currently playing his trade for French side Metz.

According to the Daily Mail, the Premier League trio could look to buy the midfielder and then loan him back to Metz for the season.

Man Utd club captain Harry Maguire has backed Raphael Varane to make a big impact at Old Trafford.

Maguire told PA news: “To bring players into this club, obviously of his calibre as well, it’s going to be really, really exciting.

“Everyone in the squad is obviously looking forward to working with him.

“I think one thing that it does is it boosts our defensive options. We’ve got an amazing number of centre-backs now at this club, all international players who are all proven in the Premier League.

“You’ve seen again how well Victor (Lindelof) played today. Victor has not just shown that today, but he’s shown it over the last two seasons while I’ve played with him.

“He’s an excellent footballer so, like I say, to have this amount of number of top centre-backs is great for the competition for places. It’ll make people push further, push harder and it’s exciting.”

Man Utd legend Paul Scholes believes that Paul Pogba will stay at the club.

The Frenchman picked up four assists in United’s 5-1 trouncing of rivals Leeds yesterday.

I think he’ll stay. I think he will.

“When he was playing a couple of years ago in a team that wasn’t quite functioning as well as this one looks like it might do.

“With the amount of attacking players he’s got, the ability he’s got, I think he’ll add a lot to this team.

“I think he’ll end up signing a new contract.

“If this team carries on in this manner, progressing like it is – I don’t want to get too excited – but it’s a team that can go on and win trophies, and that’s what he wants to do.”
