United make contact with Goretzka agents, Pogba linked with PSG move, Trippier fee £18m
GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS
SunSport can exclusively reveal Man Utd are lining up German star Leon Goretzka amid mounting fears they will be forced to sell Paul Pogba.
The Red Devils are preparing the prospect of £89million record signing Pogba quitting United for a SECOND time.
His Old Trafford contract expires in summer 2022 and he has given no indication as yet that he is willing to commit to a new one.
And Goretzka, 26, is currently at a similar stand-off over his future with Bayern Munich.
The former Schalke ace could be available on a free transfer in a year’s time or – if there is no resolution – may have to be sold for a knockdown fee this summer.
Meanwhile, Man Utd star Mason Greenwood has named Fulham’s Joe Bryan as his toughest-ever opponent.
Greenwood said: “I’ve probably got to say, it might be a surprising one, but do you know [Joe] Bryan, the one for Fulham?
“He allowed me no space, no time on the ball, when we played them home and away. It was one of my most difficult games for us.
“He’s one you probably wouldn’t think I’d say his name, but he was getting tight to me and not giving me much space.
“He was a good defender and he was probably my toughest challenge.”
Finally, Kevin De Bruyne is the bookies’ favourite to win PFA Player of the Year for a THIRD successive season.
Man United star Bruno Fernandes is third on the list from Sky Bet.
And new Red Devil Jadon Sancho is sixth-favourite.
