    Harry Maguire has opened up about the stunning moment Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made him Man Utd captain.

    Maguire told the UTD podcast: “He just pulled me and he said, ‘Look, I’m going to make you captain of this club’.

    “Obviously it was a great moment for myself – it’s a huge honour to play for this club, never mind be the captain and lead the boys out at Old Trafford. It’s a massive honour and a massive privilege.

    “It came a lot sooner than I would have dreamed of. Obviously Ash [Ashley Young] was here before, I learned a lot off Ash when he was here for three or four months. A great guy, a great player for the club, a great servant.”

    Jesse Lingard looks set to leave Man Utd on loan before deadline day.

    ESPN claims a decision will be made this week after the midfielder extended his contract by a year to prevent him from leaving on a free transfer in the summer.

    Lingard remains out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first team plans and was not in the squad for yesterday’s FA Cup win against Liverpool.

    West Ham, West Brom, Sheffield United, Newcastle and even Spurs are said to be interested.

    Bruno Fernandes has revealed the five Manchester United stars who consistently stay late after training – including himself.

    Asked about Sunday's free-kick, Fernandes told the Man Utd website: "I think almost every day [Solskjaer] has to kick me out of the training to stop.

    “I’m always working on that kind of situation.

    "I like to watch and learn from Juan [Mata] because I think he is a really good specialist.

    "I think in training we stay there most of the time – me and Juan stay longer…

    "But also Alex [Telles], Rashy [Marcus Rashford] and Fred stay with us.”

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was overheard criticising Donny van de Beek after the Dutchman 'killed an attack' against Liverpool.

    Solskjaer, 47, has largely implemented a counter-attacking style of play at United, heavily reliant on quick transitions.

    But the Norwegian was left tearing his hair out at some of Van de Beek's decision making yesterday.

    MEN reporter Samuel Lockhurst tweeted from the game: "Solskjaer not happy with Van de Beek for killing the attack earlier.

    "Shouted at him to 'run with it' and was on his case again during the next interval."

    Ryan Giggs has told Bruno Fernandes what he needs to truly rival Eric Cantona as the new king of Old Trafford.

    He told Stadium Astro: “Eric, when we won the FA Cup in 95-96, he was the difference. In the big games he would every often be the difference.

    “Fernandes undoubtedly has had a massive impact on United. There have been comparisons with Eric and the impact he has had – not just his quality but the fact everyone around him seems to be playing better.

    “You can just see he is a winner. When things aren’t going right he is telling other players, he’s having a go at the referee, he is constantly moaning and he wants to win.

    “He has been a revelation since he came to United. Like all top players, he has to do it in the big games and then win trophies.”

    Manchester United are open to letting Jesse Lingard leave this month.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "Jesse trained this morning, he wasn’t in the squad.

    "So, of course, he wants to play football, we will have to see and I will sit down with Jesse and make a decision on what we're going to do.

    "So far, he’s been the ultimate professional, trained well with a small group this morning that were not in squad.

    "I will sit down and see if anything comes up. I'm very happy to have him around us as I know he could have played today and done well."

    Victor Lindelof has sent a message to Mason Greenwood after the Manchester United starlet ended his barren run in front of goal.

    He told MUTV: “I was very happy for him, he’s a brilliant young player for him to get a goal and an assist is great for him, hopefully he can keep building and improving."

    Bruno Fernandes stayed late in training practicing the wonder winner he hit in the FA Cup thriller with Liverpool.

    Fernandes bent home a 78th-minute free-kick soon after coming off the bench to set up a last-16 home tie with West Ham.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “When you leave him out, like I had to do today, he stayed about 45 minutes after training yesterday shooting free-kicks. So I was quite confident he’d hit the target today.

    “He’s never happy with me when I tell him to go inside if he’s playing the day after, so he got some practice.”

    Manchester United will reportedly battle Tottenham for the capture of Norwich City star Max Aarons.

    The Red Devils are reportedly keen to sign a right-back to act as competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

    Yet according to the Sunday Mirror, United will have to act fast with former boss Jose Mourinho weighing up a £20million swoop to bring Aarons to Spurs.

    Manchester United have received a blow in their pursuit of RB Leipzig ace Dayot Upamecano as Chelsea and Bayern Munich have reportedly contacted him about a transfer.

    The Red Devils have been heavily linked with the centre-back for months but they now face stiff competition from their fellow European powerhouses.

    United were said to be front-runners to land the 22-year-old for £55million this month.

    Upamenco’s £38m release clause is only activated in the summer so United are reportedly willing to cough up the extra cash top land him during this transfer window.

    The Red Devils have scouted the Frenchman for more than a year and were close to agreeing a deal last summer.

    But they could now be pipped to the post, according to German outlet Kicker.

    Daniel Levy will reportedly have the final say on whether ex-United target Dele Alli is allowed to leave on loan to Paris Saint-Germain.

    The England star has been left out in the cold by former Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho at Spurs this season.

    And while he is not featuring for Spurs at present, The Athletic have reported that Levy will not accept a transfer or loan with an option to buy.

    As a result, Alli will be forced to wait until Levy has 'fully assessed his options' before he decides whether or not to accept a straight loan deal.

    Manchester United owner Joel Glazer addressed fans of his NFL side Tampa Bay Buccaneers last night, having not done so for those of the Red Devils in nearly 16 years.

    The American had just watched his team overcome the top-seeded Green Bay Packers 31-26 away from home.

    This result sealed the NFC Championship, and a place at Super Bowl LV.

    The 50-year-old said: "We're so happy.

    "I'm so proud of all these players, so proud of Bruce Arians, the entire team.

    "And Tampa, we're coming home."

    Edinson Cavani told Bruno Fernandes where to put his winning free-kick in Manchester United's 3-2 FA Cup win over Liverpool.

    He told BBC Sport: "I work a lot on these kind of goals, free-kicks. I tried, this one was good.

    "Before the free-kick, Cavani told me, 'Try the hard one on the side of the keeper'. I tried it and it went well."

    Bruno Fernandes came off the bench to fire Manchester United into the fifth round of the FA Cup last night.

    A 3-2 epic with Liverpool saw the Portuguese star arrive to slam home a late free-kick after Mohamed Salah’s brace threatened extra-time.

    The Egyptian scored first before Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford sent United towards the next round.

    Edinson Cavani’s mistake was pounced upon by the Premier League champions, who couldn’t hold on despite Salah’s second.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said afterwards: “We played some really good stuff, good goals, we have to defend well against them and we managed to react well and of course towards the end there were some moments but we kept them away.

    “Great goal, good free kick. When you leave him out like I did today, he stayed about 45 minutes after training yesterday shooting free kicks so I was pretty confident he could score one if he got the chance.”

    However, Marcus Rashford is due for a scan later today after injuring his knee in the win.

    West Ham travel to Old Trafford for the next round in the second week of February.

    There was no Jesse Lingard’s in today’s Manchester United squad and the midfielder could soon leave the club.

    According to ESPN, the decision to loan out Lingard is with the United board.

    Solskjaer was said to be happy to keep the player but, after talks between the pair, a departure looks likely.

    Newcastle, Tottenham, Sheffield United, West Ham and West Brom are named as keen on Lingard.

    Bruno Fernandes stayed late in training practicing the wonder winner he hit in the FA Cup thriller with Liverpool.

    Fernandes bent home a 78th-minute free-kick soon after coming off the bench to set up a last-16 home tie with West Ham.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer explained how Portugal attacking midfielder Fernandes once again went the extra mile in practice to get it right.

    The Norwegian said: "When you leave him out, like I had to do today, he stayed about 45 minutes after training yesterday shooting free-kicks. So I was quite confident he’d hit the target today.

    “He’s never happy with me when I tell him to go inside if he’s playing the day after, so he got some practice."

    Leah Galton and Ella Toone struck in the second-half to earn the women’s side a 2-0 win at home against Birmingham.

    Mason Greenwood kept his cool to slot home despite Liverpool's Andy Robertson SCREAMING in his ear to try and put him off.

    Greenwood, 19, was played in by a stunning diagonal ball from team-mate Marcus Rashford during United's 3-2 FA Cup win at Old Trafford.

    After trapping the ball on his chest, Greenwood had to contend with an off-putting loud shout from retreating Scotland captain Robertson.

    With fans still barred amid the coronavirus pandemic, the former Hull man's unique tactics were clearly audible to viewers at home.

    That was Manchester United’s eighth FA Cup home win in a row – although the first on that run in which they have conceded a goal.

    Many are looking at the Red Devils impressive away record.

    But they have excelled at Old Trafford against Liverpool in recent years, now going eight games unbeaten in these derbies.

    That is four wins and four draws since a 3-0 loss in March 2014.
