Man United Reach Europa League Final

Europa League 2020 Final

Manchester United reached their first final of the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer era but lost their seven-match unbeaten record in an entertaining Europa League last-four tie with Roma.

Edinson Cavani scored both United goals in the second leg of a 13-goal semi-final.

The Uruguayan opened the scoring with a fabulous first-half effort, then found the net with a fine header from Bruno Fernandes’ excellent floated pass in the second half.

In between, Roma briefly threatened a comeback when former Manchester City forward Edin Dzeko scored his ninth goal against United before Bryan Cristante finished smartly with a shot on the turn.

Ole Continues His Dominance Over Pep As United Beat City Again

Manchester in red

Once again Ole Gunnar Solskjaer got the better of Pep Guardiola as Manchester United won 2-0 at the Ethiad on Sunday.

With the win Solskjaer He is the only manager to have won more matches against Guardiola (four) than he has lost (three), and the first United coach to win their first three away games against their city rivals.

The latest, on Sunday, was perhaps the best of the lot, as the Red Devils lifted themselves from their recent lethargic displays to end City’s 21-match winning run in style, winning 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium in a result that though unlikely to reignite their own title bid, again proves that when Solskjaer gets it right, they can beat any opposition.

Inter Milan Miss Loan Payment To Manchester United

Lukaku Inter MIlan

I wrote earlier this week about the financial troubles that Inter Milan’s Chinese owners are in. Inter owe over €200m in transfer fees to other clubs, with their biggest debt being too Manchester United for the signing of Romelu Lukaku back in 2019.

Inter still owe United over €50m for Lukaku, and it appears that they have failed to make a €5m bonus payment to the Premier League side.

According to Italian outlet Il Corriere dello Sport, that missed payment has triggered a clause in the contract that states that Inter need to pay outstanding fee in full by March 31. The problem is that Inter does not have €50m. They obviously don’t even have €5m!
