GOOD MORNING UTD FANS,
Manchester City are champions of England once again after the Red Devils lost at home to Leicester.
Pep Guardiola’s dominant side have now lifted their third title in four years after blowing away the rest of the field.
City should have spent Saturday evening celebrating their title triumph but were forced to put the champagne on ice after losing 2-1 at home to Chelsea.
But it was just a matter of when before their champion status was confirmed with three matches to spare when Caglar Soyuncu headed home Leicester’s 66th-minute winner at Old Trafford.
And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sent a message of congratulations to their neighbours.
He said: “If we want to take up the challenge with them we need to strengthen our squad. Congratulations to them. They have had a fantastic season.
“I am very pleased with my boys that have made it to the last 10 days with a Manchester City side ahead of us that are lauded as the best in Europe.
“We want to take the next step [to bridge the gap to City] and it might be that we need a couple more to strengthen the squad.”
Meanwhile on the transfer front, SunSport has revealed that Roma have joined the race for Brighton star Ben White – the defender loads of major clubs across Europe are scrambling to sign.
The Italian sleeping giants have turned their attention to White on the instruction of new boss Jose Mourinho.
When Mourinho agreed to take charge in the Eternal City he made it clear the side needed strengthening, and the 23-year-old Seagulls ace is one of the names he gave them.
But the chances of Roma being able to seal a deal for White are remote, because there is so much interest in him Brighton know they can place a huge valuation on him – in excess of £45million.
Liverpool were watching him closely after that year at Elland Road, making inquiries to the Seagulls as the club were rejecting bids up to £25m from Leeds.
But it is not just Jurgen Klopp who admires from afar, Arsenal and Manchester United have also been tracking his performances in the Premier League.
And finally, United are ready to press ahead with a £15million bid for winger Kamaldeen Sulemana – and hope he will be qualified to play for them by the start of next season.
United sent top scout Tommy Moller Nielsen to watch Sulemana score in FC Nordsjaelland’s 2-2 draw against Copenhagen on Monday night after tracking the 19-year-old all season.
And SunSport understands they are set to make a move for the Ghana international soon.
United know they may need to act fast in order to beat Ajax, Bayer Leverkusen, Lyon and Monaco in the race for his signature.
