JESSE GO FOR IT Jesse Lingard to Newcastle and Alexis Sanchez to Tottenham as Man Utd raise funds for £110m Jadon Sancho transfer

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER is ready to offload stars Jesse Lingard and Alexis Sanchez as Manchester United raise the funds for Jadon Sancho’s £110million transfer this summer.

The United boss can get £35m for Lingard, with Newcastle among those interested once their takeover is completed.

But the key would be getting rid of striker Sanchez and his £505,000-a-week wages, with the striker linked to Tottenham.

Reports suggest United will sell both if the right offers come in.
The duo are not the only players that could be sold by Old Trafford chiefs this summer.

Solskjaer can tighten his squad by selling the likes of defender Diogo Dalot and midfielder Nemanja Matic.

He could also consider selling Juventus target Paul Pogba for £80m – which the board would prefer him to do if the Frenchman does not sign a contract extension.

Chelsea have also been linked with a £50m move for goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

But bringing in Sancho from Borussia Dortmund is the prize for Solskjaer.

The Norwegian wants to play the England winger up front with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in a front three which he believes can give United the edge in the title race next season.

Solskjaer is determined to knock Liverpool back off their perch next term.

The title winners are an incredible 37 points ahead of United with seven matches still to go.

Rafa Nadal and I have had our differences, but he’s an absolute champion,’ says Nick Kyrgios

Nick Kyrgios admits that he and Rafa Nadal have ‘had their differences’ over the years but he can’t help but admire his achievements.

Nadal won his 20th Grand Slam crown at Roland Garros earlier this month to draw level with Roger Federer in the history books.

Kyrgios has a bit of a storied past when it comes to spats with Nadal, who he once branded ‘super salty’ whilst accusing him of being a bad loser.

Even he, though, can’t deny the Spaniard has achieved something special.

“I wasn’t surprised when I saw Rafa Nadal pretty much easing his way through the draw at the French Open,” Kyrgios told Courtside Huddle.

“That’s his backyard, he loves playing there and he has only lost two matches in his entire career.

“Honestly, in my opinion I don’t think we are going to see anything like that ever again.

“Somebody so dominant on a surface he’s right there with the greatest of all time. You can argue that he is the greatest.’

“You look at Federer, he’s the most dominant player of all time, but in this era it’s actually Rafa. It’s a debate you can have.”

“We had our differences when we played each other. We’re fiery, we’re competitors and are going to go after each other.

“But at the same time I am not going to take anything away from him . He’s an absolute champion and 20 Grand Slam is ridiculous and I don’t think we are ever going to see that again.”
