Good morning Manchester United fans!
Manchester United and Chelsea have joined Arsenal in the battle for Real Sociedad star Alexander Isak.
Isak has a £75m release clause in his contract with Sociedad and is enjoyed by fans across the continent including United, the Gunners and the Blues.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Red Devils are looking to buy this midfielder.
The Manchester giants see the Sweden international as a potential replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who turns 37 on Saturday, should the club legend leave this summer.
The west Londoners could also be looking for a striker at the end of the season if Romelu Lukaku is not at his best.
And of course, Arsenal demanded a replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after he signed for Barcelona.
Meanwhile, United are growing increasingly confident that they can appoint Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Pochettino is under more pressure in France after PSG’s penalty shootout loss to Nice in the Coupe de France.
According to Le Parisien, the Argentina head coach’s last hope is to win the Champions League this season.
However, the former Tottenham manager’s future will depend on whether they can get past Real Madrid with a 13-time win in the last 16.
The Mirror claims that Pochettino is the ‘no. 1 candidate’ to take over as interim manager Ralf Rangnick at Old Trafford.
Rangnick is expected to move into an advisory role to the club at the end of the season.
And Cristiano Ronaldo delivered the following message on his birthday on Saturday – which he celebrated with a giant CR7 cake.
Ronaldo posted: “Life is a roller coaster ride. Hard work, high speed, urgent goals, demanding expectations…
“But in the end, it all depends on family, love, honesty, friendship, values that make it all.
“Thanks for all the messages! 37 and continue! ”
