Express Sport now takes a look at all the latest news coming out of Old Trafford, with the Glazers, Jude Bellingham and Lisandro Martinez featuring in our round-up.
Glazers make final decision

Until now, there have been doubts over whether the Glazers definitely want to sell United.

But the Daily Mail say the Americans are behind the idea and that a takeover is the likeliest outcome at the current moment.

Last week, United hosted the representatives of Sheikh Jassim – with the Qatari billionaire, who is also a fan of the club, eager to win the race to be the club’s next owner.

And Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his entourage also held talks with the Red Devils hierarchy, too.

The report says United hosted these individuals at Carrington in a room usually used for press conferences, with Erik ten Hag then using Sir Alex Ferguson’s old war room instead.

Bellingham twist

United are one of the teams interested in securing the signature of Jude Bellingham this summer.

And, according to The Athletic, the England international is unlikely to head to Liverpool at the end of the season.

The Reds believe there’s better chance of Bellingham going elsewhere instead, with Real Madrid and Manchester City also showing interest.

The 19-year-old think they lack the financial muscle to land Bellingham, especially with the midfielder having no release clause in his contract.

And the fact they’re also poised to finish the campaign without a trophy doesn’t bode well either.

United are facing a problem when it comes to landing Napoli star Kim Min-jae this summer, according to journalist Ben Jacobs.

Speaking to TeamTalk, he said: “Clubs looking at centre backs will inevitably be scouting Kim Min-jae.

“[Napoli boss] Luciano Spalletti has already termed him ‘one of the best centre-backs in the world’ and you only have to look at his form and intelligence and awareness to understand why and there are Premier League clubs looking for sure.

“Manchester United are in a difficult position with that type of player because he sees himself as a starting centre-back and they’ve obviously got Martinez and Varane there.

“But there’s other teams that are looking to drop somebody straight into their starting lineup.”

Sabitzer celebrates first goal

Marcel Sabitzer scored his first goal for United on Sunday in their victory over Fulham.

And the Austria international was buzzing in the aftermath, saying: “I was overwhelmed. I was looking for it: scoring the first at Old Trafford in front of these amazing fans.

“And that important one, at 2-1 it was a massive one. I am very happy at the moment. I couldn’t reach it with the right foot, so I was just trying to hit it with the left foot and it worked out.”

He continued: “It’s a massive win.

“We wanted to go back to Wembley, we did it. 1-0 down was tough, but we come back and it was a good one.”
Keane unhappy after Fulham win

Roy Keane was unimpressed by United’s win over Fulham and admitted he was ‘losing confidence’ in the side.

He told ITV: “I’ve lost that little bit of confidence watching them now.

“A month or two ago you’re thinking, yeah, listen, they’re up for it, but in the cup, the last few games they just have a real habit of trying to play in moments.

“That’s okay every now and again but it just seems to be their DNA at the moment. I think they’ve got into some real bad habits and it’s as if they’re turning up today expecting we’ve got quality players and Man United are gonna win football matches.

“But if they turn up with that attitude for the semi-final Brighton will beat them. It gives them a bit of a kick up the backside.”….>CONTINUE READING
