    Amad Diallo was the star of the show as Manchester United Under-23s came from behind to beat Blackburn 6-4 at Leigh Sports Village.

    The Ivorian winger, 18, arrived last month from Atalanta for a fee potentially rising to £37million.

    Premier League clubs don't have to let their Portuguese or South American stars represent their national teams in March.

    Clubs are usually forced by FIFA regulations to release players for international duty.

    However, an exemption until the end of April was added in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

    UK rules mean anyone returning from a 'red list' country – which includes Portugal, all of South America and parts of Africa – will need to quarantine for 10 days.

    Premier League clubs were embroiled in a furious row over proposed changes to the Champions League, REPORTS MARTIN LIPTON.

    The latest meeting of the 20 ‘shareholder’ clubs was dominated by a terse and tense debate over the plans, explained for the first time by League chief executive Richard Masters.

    At the height of the bust-up, which saw a scheduled two-hour virtual meeting lasting more than three hours, one club chief even threatened to SUE Uefa.

    Masters outlined the latest proposals, which have emerged after a series of meetings between Uefa bigwigs and representatives of a small number of members of the European Club Association, including Manchester United.

    Uefa, seeking to ward off the genuine threat of a breakaway European Super League, is proposing extending its blue riband competition to 36 clubs, four more than the current 32.

    Paul Merson claims Jesse Lingard has ‘no future’ at Manchester United.

    He told Starsport: "Jesse Lingard has no future at Manchester United and should leave Old Trafford permanently.

    "Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said all the right things about wanting to build up his confidence on loan at West Ham so they can welcome him back.

    "But he was just trying to build up Lingard’s transfer fee. I think he should move on. United are playing all these games and he’s not had a look-in.

    "He’s not 21 anymore. It’s not like the Arsenal kids going out on loan to get experience."

    West Ham United boss David Moyes is open to the prospect of signing Jesse Lingard permanently this summer.

    He said: “We won’t get carried away with one game but we are really pleased for Jesse and he did a great job for us,” said Moyes.

    “The situation here is that Jesse has a good chance to look at West Ham and see what he thinks of us and to see if he likes it.

    “And we are going to have a good chance to look at Jesse, as are the supporters, and we will be able to decide what we think in five or six months’ time.”

    Speaking on Chelsea’s official Youtube channel, he said: “It was against Manchester United, actually. It was Scott McTominay.

    “I know he’s fellow Scottish and all that but he was so good, quick, strong and technically good. So, I think it was tough playing against him.

    “He played really good, He was stopping everything in midfield and controlling the game.”

    But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that Eric Bailly is a doubt.

    Manchester United have been dealt a blow following reports Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has rewritten the club's transfer plans.

    The Blues had been linked with West Ham's Declan Rice and Brighton's Ben White under Frank Lampard, but now they have been disregarded as Tuchel focuses instead on the two central defenders.

    According to Goal, they are RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano and Bayern Munich's Niklas Sule.

    Upamecano, 22, has made a name for himself as one of the hottest prospects in Europe and has many admirers at Old Trafford.

    But his sister, Katia Aveiro, has revealed that their father always knew he would reach the top.

    She wrote on Instagram: "Dad promised that he would see all the games, promised to prove all the things he says so many times, that he will still be the best player in the world."

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called on Manchester United to honour those who perished in the Munich air disaster with a fitting performance against Everton.

    It is only the fourth time United have actually played on the anniversary of the tragedy that killed 23, including eight of the Busby Babes.

    There will be a minute's silence before the Old Trafford clash with both captains laying wreaths in memory of those who died and both sides will wear black armbands.

    United boss Solskjaer said: "It's only the fourth time the game is played on the actual anniversary.

    "And it's important we put on a fitting performance and hopefully we can honour them with the result."

    RO IS ME

    Former Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has suffered an injury in his first training session with Boca Juniors.

    The 30-year-old, who signed for the Argentine side at the end of the January transfer window, has reportedly suffered the problem 'due to inactivity'.

    It isn't too hard to believe given he has not played competitive football for 15 months.

    And speaking after picking up the injury, Rojo told Argentine newspaper Ole: "I was training on my own, but it's not the same.

    "Miguel told me that he had a plan for me to get quick to compete for a place. It was good from the physical, but the first days it cost me a lot."

    Manchester United captain Harry Maguire divulged how the Red Devils manage their fines system – and revealed he has fallen foul of the rules himself.

    Maguire is involved in keeping players in line along with Serbian enforcer Nemanja Matic and a couple of other stars.

    And he told the Utd podcast: "I've been fined once which is still debatable. It's crazy but I let Nemanja do it. I took the hit and put the money in the pot.

    "When you meet in the gym before training for pre-activation you are not allowed your phone. We did pre-activation, I didn't have my phone. But then you go outside to put your boots on and you aren't allowed to go on your phone in that period. I had my phone and carried it out with me.

    "I wasn't on my phone because straight after training I was going to put my trainers back on and go up for a massage instead of coming all the way back.

    "I could have gone straight to a massage and Nemanja fined me for that. He's strict with everyone so I'm happy. I can set the standard."

    Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka has set his sights firmly on winning the Premier League at Old Trafford.

    He told Sky Sports: "Of course, [winning the Premier League is the target], and a few cups to go with that as well.

    "It would mean a lot, especially after the club's history of winning trophies, and a lot of them. It would be good to get back to that.

    "The mood in the camp has been good. It wasn't great taking in the loss [to Sheffield United] but we haven't let it get us down or our chances to get our hands on the Premier League.

    The team spirit is still high, as long as we stick together, we can go back to the form we had before."

    Manchester United captain Harry Maguire praised the role of full-backs Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw in helping the Red Devils surge up the Premier League table.

    United are second behind neighbours Manchester City and bounced back from taking one point from the games against Sheffield United and Arsenal by demolishing Southampton 9-0 on Tuesday.

    Maguire told United Review: "Obviously, Luke and Aaron have been excellent of late. They’ve really picked up their attacking game and started to fly forward and create chances which is really important for the team.

    "We know how big an influence full-backs in the modern day have on the attacking side of the game, as well as the defensive side.

    "First and foremost, they’re defenders for us and I’ve got to say they’ve been brilliant on that side of things. They don’t get beaten one on one which is really important, they’re stopping crosses and they’ve been defending the back-post really well.

    “As a back four, we’re working hard together. I have big demands on my full-backs, I am expecting them to fly forward but I also expect them to fly back as well.

    “Luke has been great and Aaron was great at Arsenal last weekend and it’s really important that they keep up this form to help the team.”

    Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire has identified England team-mate Dominic Calvert-Lewin as Everton's main threat ahead of their Prem clash.

    Maguire told United Review: "In the Premier League you play against different types of strikers week in, week out so you know every striker is going to bring something different, and everyone has strengths and everyone has weaknesses.

    "I know Dom from our time with England and he’s very physical and a handful, and we’ll need to be right on our game to keep him quiet.

    "If we manage to do that, it will be a big part for us in, hopefully, taking steps towards the victory.”

    Manchester United target Erling Haaland is set to receive a stunning £100million offer from noisy neighbours Manchester City.

    The 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund star is the most sought-after striker in Europe following his explosion onto the scene over the past two years.

    However, the Norwegian will be available for just £68m in June 2022 due to a clause in his contract with the German giants.

    Premier League rivals Chelsea are also keen on Haaland who is the son of former City player Alf-Inge Haaland.

    But the Daily Mirror claims City are ‘prepared to blow his suitors out of the water’ with a £100m bid at the end of this season.

    And they are ready to offer the youngster a whopping £400,000-a-week to come to the Etihad.

    Harry Maguire reckons lifting the Premier League for Manchester United will silence the haters.

    He said: “I enjoy it. I don’t mind it at all.

    “When I lift my first trophy at this club it will put a bigger smile on my face knowing there’s a lot of people not wanting us to do that.

    “We are the most talked about club in the world. A lot of people don’t want us to do well.

    "A lot of people want us to fail and that’s the world that we live in. I’m pretty used to it now.”

    Meanwhile, Micah Richards has claimed that Jesse Lingard became United’s “scapegoat’ before their revival.

    He told Match of the Day: “You’re happy for him because what he’s gone through at Man United, he became the scapegoat. He is a quality player, isn’t he?

    “His intent was there from the off. He was getting comfortable, growing into the game, wanting the ball because it was a big occasion for him.

    “You’ve been hiding behind the Man United covers, as some people would say, but we see here, he’s got more to his game.”

    And finally, United are set to reignite their interest in Jadon Sancho after Borussia Dortmund lowered their asking price by £20million, according to reports.

    The Red Devils were desperate to land the 20-year-old England winger last summer but refused to meet the £108million price-tag.

    United launched an initial £65m bid with future incentives but Dortmund wanted more money upfront.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not lost his interest in Sancho and is expected to test Dortmund’s resolve yet again at the end of the season.

    According to Bild, Dortmund will let him leave if they receive an offer in the region of £88m.
