Declan Rice ‘wanted for £70m’, Pogba to Real Madrid on again, Haaland could join in January


Manchester United picked up a 1-1 draw against Southampton at St Mary’s.

Saints opened the scoring in the half-hour mark following an own-goal by Fred.

But United equalised with Mason Greenwood after 55 minutes to salvage a point.

That result means the Red Devils have equalled the record for longest unbeaten Premier League away run.

Meanwhile, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is “not worried” about Paul Pogba’s contract situation.

Pogba’s current deal expires in the summer of 2022 and has yet to extend but Solskjaer isn’t concerned.

Solskjaer said: “Yes, I expect Paul to be here when the first of September comes.

“If you’ve got a five-year contract or a one-year contract, when you sign for Man United you have to rise to the challenge of performing on a consistent level.

“I’m not worried whatsoever that the length of any player’s contract is changing the level of their motivation and inspiration.

“You want to play well for your team, your team-mates, yourself, your family, every time you play.

“What I expect is that the attitude and the approach to every game is the right one. That we have the same focus, the right focus, the right professionalism and, with that, I have no worries about Paul whatsoever.”

Finally, United have received a major transfer boost in their bid to sign Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland.

That is because Haaland’s £64million release clause kicks in once the mid-season transfer window opens in January, according to Marca.

It had previously been thought that the star striker’s cut-price clause would not kick in until the summer of 2022.

The Norway international was being valued by Dortmund at a fee in the region of £130m this summer but he could potentially be moving on for less than half that price.
