Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Frenkie de Jong agent AGREES deal, squad want Cristiano Ronaldo GONE, Knighton takeover
United fans branded ‘delusional’
Man United fans have been blasted for their attitude towards the club’s approach for Marko Arnautovic.
United placed a bid for the Bologna ace which infuriated the club’s fans.
But they’ve been branded delusional by Gabby Agbonlahor.
He told talkSPORT: “I don’t know who Man United fans think they are. Arnautovic makes that squad a better squad.
“They’ve got to stop living in the Fergie years. Man United, now, are a club who can’t attract top players.
“I’d rather Arnautovic in my team than Jadon Sancho at the moment.
“If he makes that team better for a season, get him in. It’s the manager’s choice, it doesn’t matter what the fans think.”
Gender pay gap revealed
The staggering pay gap between Manchester United’s men and women players has been revealed.
A BBC study this month revealed the average WSL player earns £47,000 a year – around £900 a week.
Meanwhile, the average male Premier League star earns £60k a WEEK.
At United, the Telegraph claims most female stars are picking up between £50k-£90k each year, making for an average annual salary of £70k.
Club legend makes shock admission
Javier Hernandez has offered to return to Manchester United and play for FREE.
The Mexican forward starred for the Red Devils between 2010 and 2015, helping them to two Premier League title wins.
He said: “Man, I mean, there are these situations and I know the narratives because of my age and my past.
“If United came for me then I’d say ‘yes, I’ll play for free.’ Of course, you know, I’d do that.
“But I also want to be very respectful to my club. I am playing very consistently and in my mind and my world, my conviction is all about winning a championship with LA Galaxy.”
A closer look at United bidder
Michael Knighton was once heavily involved in Manchester United – and he could be in for a second bite of the cherry, NYLE SMITH WRITES.
The successful Englishman is reportedly preparing a hostile bid to buy United back from the Glazer family.
Born October 4, 1951, Michael Knighton was raised in Derbyshire and spent most of his youth playing football.
As a teenager, Knighton represented Coventry City as an apprentice for a year before his career was cut short due to a thigh injury.
However, this enabled the successful businessman to focus on his studies at Durham University’s Bede College where he secured a degree in Physical Education (PE).
And then Michael went to St. Cuthbert’s College to study philosophy, politics and Mandarin Chinese before becoming a PE teacher as well as teaching geography in 1976.
But by 1984, the Englishman quit to focus on property interests with his first huge asset being Manchester United.
