Man Utd’offered winger Filip Kostic for£27m’as club officials respond
Manchester United chiefs reportedly turned down the chance to sign Eintracht Frankfurt winger Filip Kostic earlier this summer.
The Premier League giants have made just one signing during the current transfer window, bringing Donny van de Beek to Old Trafford.
There has been plenty of talk over United’s interest for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho with Daily Star Sport understanding a £90m offer will be made.
Plenty of alternatives have been suggested with Kostic potentially one of those, though it seems the Red Devils are not keen.
Stretty News reports that the United hierarchy have recently turned down the chance to sign Kostic, 27, for as little as £27m.
Man Utd anger their own staff by branding them’non-relevant’
Manchester United have reportedly upset some of their staff – by branding them as ‘non-relevant’.
The Red Devils train at Carrington and are believed to have separated the allocation of car parking spaces amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The work on the training ground somehow paid off on Saturday as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side picked up their first three points of the Premier League season by beating Brighton.
But some United staff are believed to be unhappy due to signs in the training ground car park.
The Daily Mail report that notices have been put up, with non-players and coaches branded as ‘non-relevant’.
It’s claimed that ‘non-relevant’ staff are charged with looking after players or have crucial operational roles at the training ground.
Man United’s biggest problem was exposed an hour before kick off vs Brighton
It was quite fitting that the Manchester United players left the Amex Stadium wearing masks on Saturday afternoon.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had committed the footballing version of a robbery. Just when it looked like they’d been brought to justice they had one final trick up their sleeve to make sure they got away with it.
The chaotic final five minutes of this match had a plot from Money Heist, but to depict United as The Professor from the Netflix series, consistently finding ingenious ways to get his crew out of precarious situations, would be to overplay the role they had in this game.
Instead, Brighton hauled themselves to a result they would have felt was the minimum they deserved, only to forget to tighten the handcuffs around their weary opponents.
The 100th-minute penalty converted by Bruno Fernandes, a couple of minutes after referee Chris Kavanagh had actually blown the final whistle, was the craziest finish to a Premier League game you’ll see all season and having got their Premier League campaign up and running there will have been an understandable euphoria amongst United players and staff on the way back north.
