GOOD MORNING UNITED FANS,
Dan James has opened up on the heart-to-heart with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that revived his career.
He said: “I wasn’t playing much and I thought, ‘Do I accept this and just be in the background?’.
“I wanted to be at United — I didn’t want to be anywhere else.
“I spoke to the gaffer before the Istanbul Champions League game and told him I was ready to play.
“He said, ‘I can see the way you’re training — and you look back to being you again’.
“Sometimes it’s hard to go to the gaffer. I speak to him every day but going to see him one-to-one, being confident and saying I’m ready to play means you have to go out of your comfort zone.
“Coming out of that meeting, I think he loved I did that. He played me, I came on and scored.”
Meanwhile, on the transfer front, Real Madrid have joined United in the chase for Sevilla star Jules Kounde, according to reports.
Zinedine Zidane’s side are keen on signing a new defender this summer, given the possible exits of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.
And, with David Alaba potentially moving elsewhere despite months of negotiations, Kounde, 22, would appear to fit the bill as an excellent alternative to the Austrian.
SunSport told you earlier this month that the Red Devils had been boosted by Sevilla’s decision to lower their asking price to around £50million.
And according to AS, Madrid now also fancy a bit of that.
And finally, Eduardo Camavinga isn’t ‘closing the door’ on moves to United – despite favouring a Real Madrid switch.
The Frenchman is set to be hot property during the next transfer window, with his contract at Rennes expiring in June 2022.
Camavinga, 18, is besotted with the idea of playing under compatriot Zinedine Zidane, and is determined to make the switch in the summer.
But according to AS, the move could fall down should Zidane not be at Real Madrid next season.
And if Zizou, 48, were to depart, Man United, Chelsea or even Paris Saint-Germain could re-enter the race for Camavinga.
