Manchester United make decision on Mike Phelan's future with three-year contract

And United's manager is so serious about licking his star players into shape, anyone who doesn't follow their fitness schedules won't be taken on the tour of Australia and the Far East. We got a few injuries and it's been ups and downs for the last two months, but that's football.

"Next season, we've got to close that gap". But fifth place could be important if the result of the FA Cup final goes Watford's way against Manchester City as that would secure them a group stage spot in the Europa League.

Asked about a move for James on Friday morning, Solskjaer said: "I can't comment on every single individual".

Manchester United have struggled to find consistent form all season and they now find themselves in sixth place in the table and having won just one of their last five outings in the top flight.

The likes of Everton, Newcastle, Bournemouth and Southampton have been linked with James, but a well-placed United source has told Football Insider that James favours a move to Old Trafford over all other interested parties and a deal is edging closer.

Martial has fallen down manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's pecking order at Old Trafford in recent times.

Club captain Valencia will leave on a free transfer after 10 years at the club while Herrera is set to join Paris Saint-Germain after failing to agree a extension to his contract with United. "Next season we've got a great challenge ahead".

"He's been a fantastic servant to the club, he's been player of the year, he's been captain at the club and I think that's only fair".

"It is not like when I used to play, us or Arsenal would win the league". As for Warnock, now in his 70s, he could very easily call it a day and this may even be his last game.

"Solskjaer's said agents are calling him, yeah of course they are".
