Gary Neville calls European Super League talks CRIMINAL, Varane talks, Haaland contract boost, Milenkovic EXCLUSIVE


Gary Neville called for points deductions for clubs involved in plans for a European Super League.

Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea have reportedly agreed to the controversial proposals.

The development of the Super League is seen as a rival to Uefa’s Champions League, which is set to be revamped with a new 36-team tournament to come into force in 2024.

And Neville told Sky Sports: “Deduct them all points tomorrow – put them at the bottom of the league and take the money off them.

“Seriously you have got to stamp on this, it’s criminal. It is a criminal act against football fans in this country. Make no mistake about it.

“This is the biggest sport in the world, in this country and it’s a criminal act against the fans, simple as that.

“Deduct points, deduct their money and punish them.”

Meanwhile, on the pitch, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that United are happy to banish their recent Burnley hoodoo.

Mason Greenwood scored twice and Edinson Cavani added a third in stoppage time to secure a 3-1 win at Old Trafford.

And Solskjaer told BBC Sport: “Very happy with three points, we haven’t beat Burnley here since 2015. Good result, five wins on the bounce, that’s good form.

“First half we started OK, got control but we couldn’t find the big openings and Burnley made it more of an end-to-end game, bit scrappy because they defended and attacked so well we couldn’t get a rhythm.

“We played and ran in the second half, got chances and got the goal deservedly, you switched off for two seconds for the corner and that’s how it is against Burnley.”

And finally on the transfer front, United could reportedly meet Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez’s release clause in the summer.

The Daily Star have claimed that the Red Devils are ready to activate his £43m release clause as Solskjaer eyes up a new midfielder.

Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also understood to be interested in the Spain international.

But it has been stated that Saul could be tempted by a switch to the Premier League.
