Good morning football fans
Newcastle were knocked out of the FA Cup following a 0-1 loss to Cambridge at St James’ Park.
The League One side created a shock in the third half thanks to Joe Ironside’s goal after 56 minutes.
This adds to the Magpies’ misery as the club continue to struggle despite a £300m takeover led by Saudi Arabia earlier this season.
Toon is facing a tense relegation battle when they only won 1 and lost 10/19 matches in the Premier League this season.
January star signing Kieran Trippier made his debut when he started for Eddie Howe’s side.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are said to have pulled out of the race for Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland after discovering he wanted to join Real Madrid.
That shocking report comes from the Daily Star, who claim that United have conceded defeat in their bid to sign Haaland before the summer transfer window.
The Red Devils are huge fans of the striker and caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick, who will become a consultant in the summer, really wants to sign him.
However, there is still stiff competition as Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool have also been contacted for the Norway international.
And United have offered Paul Pogba a new £500,000-a-week contract.
Pogba’s contract expires in the summer when he will be free to talk to clubs outside of England about a potential move.
This midfielder is being watched by PSG, Real and former team Juventus in the January transfer window.
SunSport understands he has yet to decide whether he will put pen to paper on new terms with the club.
Red Devils sources fear the France international will leave, but the new contract is around £100,000 more than the 28-year-old is expected to travel across Europe.
It would make him the highest-paid player in Premier League history, with a base salary of around £400,000 a week before additions.
Ultimately, Liverpool are tipped to offer Barcelona’s Gavi 50 times a week more wages to get him.
Despite only making four top-flight appearances, he has convinced Reds boss Jurgen Klopp to try and generate a backing for him.
The midfielder is currently earning around £1,600 a week at the Nou Camp.
According to El Nacional, however, the Merseysiders are prepared to pay him £80,000 a week to secure his signature.
