Scott McTominay believes the key to becoming a regular starter at Manchester United is versatility. The 22-year-old made 22 appearances for the Red Devils last season and was trusted in important Champions League clashes against Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona. Scott McTominay wants to be a regular starter at Man United The Scotland international wants to nail down a starting spot in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side next season. With Ander Herrera leaving the club at the end of last season, and no replacement signed yet, he could find more opportunities to establish himself as a first team regular. Ander Herrera left Manchester United to join PSG “That was my goal two years ago and last year,” McTominay said when asked if he can be a regular starter next season. “That’s always been my goal. It’s my ambition to be a regular No.6, No.8, a box to box player – that’s my main ambition. It’s important that I really go for that now. “Obviously there is an opportunity there and you’ve got to take it with both hands. Last year I had some decent performances and it’s important that I carry on from that. “We’re in the Europa League this year and it’s important that I continue.” [article-rail-section title=”LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] United continue to chase Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff but McTominay backs himself regardless of who they may bring in. He added: “Regardless of what other signings come in or who plays where, you have to back yourself to be a Man United player. That’s one thing that I’ve done over the last two years, I’ve always backed myself.

When it comes to crucial times in big games like Barcelona or PSG in the Champions League, it’s important that you’re ready for them.”

Fernando Llorente could re-sign for Tottenham as the club have reportedly made him a contract offer. The striker is currently a free agent following the expiration of his Spurs deal at the end of last month.

According to the Daily Mail, Spurs have offered Llorente a new one-year deal, but on reduced terms compared to his previous contract. The Spaniard was reportedly paid £100,000-a-week, but it is not known how much of a pay cut the north Londoners would want him to take.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted Mason Greenwood has played himself into contention for Manchester United’s Premier League opener against Chelsea. The forward once again impressed as the Red Devils breezed to a 4-0 victory over Leeds in their second pre-season friendly in Perth. Greenwood opened the scoring for Man United against Leeds [bc_video video_id=”6052424066001″ account_id=”6023583704001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Darren Gough comments on the Glazers taking £1bn out of Manchester United “] Greenwood, who appeared against Cardiff on the final day of the previous league campaign, has dazzled at youth level over the past 12 months. And he opened the scoring for Solskjaer’s side against Leeds, tapping home Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s pinpoint delivery into the area. The 18-year-old also shined in United’s 2-0 defeat of local side Perth Glory over the weekend –  and Solskjaer has now conceded the youngster has a ‘good possibility’ of starting against Chelsea at Old Trafford. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”12″ query_type=”recent” /] Speaking to the media after the match, Solskjaer said: “He’s got a chance to start that one. Yeah, definitely. “He’s capable, more than capable, and he’ll always be there, in and around the box creating chances, and I won’t say that’s not a possibility. “No, it’s a good possibility if he keeps going as he does. Difficult to keep players out that perform well.” Marcus Rashford also impressed against Marcelo Bielsa’s men, doubling his side’s lead with a fine solo goal. Solskjaer made 11 changes at half-time but the Red Devils retained their rhythm, with Phil Jones powering home a header from Andreas Pereira’s corner. Anthony Martial converted from the penalty spot late on to round off the victory after Tahith Chong was brought down inside the area.

The 26-year-old was conspicuous by his absence again after picking up another knock on the eve of the game. “Of course, it’s not ideal when you miss training sessions,” Solskjaer added on the Belgium forward. “He missed yesterday’s or towards the end of a session, then he missed a game again today. “So, he’s missed two chances to play 45 minutes, and at this stage of the season it’s important for us that we get everyone fit, so hopefully he’ll be available soon.”

Chelsea academy graduate Anthony Grant has been forced to train with the Shrewsbury Town youth team. The 32-year-old, who made 48 appearances for Salop last season, recently spent two weeks sidelined following dental surgery. Grant spent eight years at Chelsea earlier in his career He did not travel to Portugal with the rest of the squad for a pre-season training camp – and manager Sam Ricketts reveals the midfielder will not train with the first-team anymore due to ‘in-house’ reasons. “Anthony needed some dental work and part of that was that he couldn’t do physical activity for two weeks following that operation,” Ricketts told the club’s website. “That is because raising blood pressure can increase the risk of bleeding. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] “That period has come to a close and following that Granty will be training with the youth team. “He won’t be part of the first-team set-up this season due to reasons which will remain in-house.” [bc_video video_id=”6047949722001″ account_id=”6023583704001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Darren Gough discusses if it matters in what order you play your fixtures “] Grant was a regular for the League One club last season and triggered a one-year extension on his contract at the end of the campaign. He made his professional debut for Chelsea during the title-winning 2004/05 season under Jose Mourinho, though his appearance as a 90th-minute substitute for Joe Cole at Old Trafford remains his only Premier League outing.

TRAGIC Sam Connor reportedly gave pals a note containing two names and a code to unlock his mobile before he was hit by a train – as his school hints at a “prank gone wrong”. The 14-year-old died on Monday afternoon at Chertsey station in Surrey in front of 50 horrified classmates after being “bullied online” by trolls posting nasty comments. Sam Connor, 14, left, pictured with his mum Christine and brother James, was hit by a train at Chertsey after lying down on the tracks The teen had reportedly been bullied at school Floral tributes left at the scene for Sam following the tragedy Sam had reportedly handed over his mobile phone and school bag to pals – as well as a scrap of paper understood to be a suicide note. The letter is said to have contained two names, which haven’t been made public, and the password to access his mobile. A relative told Mail Online: “There were just a couple of names and the code to his phone. He was a smart kid, you know. I think if anything went wrong he’s put it in his phone and said, there you go. “He handed the phone over and the password and also a couple of names, when he handed it to his friend. It doesn’t bear thinking about.” ‘PRANK GONE WRONG’ The community has been left reeling from the tragedy – with devastated relatives and friends at a loss to understand his horrific death. Some have questioned how “horrendous” the alleged bullying had been for him to lie down on the tracks and be hit by a train. But a school source has hinted he may have got on the tracks as a prank as he was seen “joking and laughing” moments before. The source told The Sun Online: “His friends are saying that this was a prank which went horribly, horribly wrong. “He was seen laughing and joking with his mates on the platform before what happened. “His friends who were with him at the time don’t believe that this was the outcome he necessarily wanted or intended to happen. “A lot more will come out at the inquest I’m sure.” DEATH ‘NOT SUSPICIOUS’ British Transport Police today issued a statement saying his death “may have been a deliberate act”. Detective Inspector Darren Gough added: “First and foremost, I would like to express my deepest sorrow for the family of Sam Connor. On Monday their lives were shattered by the dreadful news that he had died in truly tragic circumstances. “This is an ongoing investigation, however our initial enquiries suggest that tragically, this may have been a deliberate act. Of course, our investigation is on going  and we will provide our evidence to HM Coroner as part of an inquest into Sam’s death.” An inquest will be opened and adjourned into his death on Tuesday in Woking. TRIBUTES FOR SAM Tributes have poured in for Sam after his tragic death – with one pal describing him as “bright and popular”. Another revealed the teen was one of the “nicest and most charming” boys at a local breakdancing club. He posted a photo of Sam on Facebook with his pals, writing: “Cannot not even think of an emotion to describe how I am right now apart from just heartbroken. No parent should ever have to bury their own child. The child should always bury the parents. “The crying with happiness, the laughs, the dancing will never be the same without you. Rest in peace Sam you absolute legend. “Breaking isn’t going to be the same with you gone. Hope you’re still dancing out there in the skies.” TRAGEDY ON THE TRACKS As tributes to the teen came flooding in, Deborah Barrett, the first wife of Sam’s dad, James, said: “It’s horrible. You can’t imagine, can you? I’ve just spoken to my middle one and she said he just lay down on the tracks. “He was a sensitive little soul, a cute little thing who was into gaming. He was funny and sarcastic with a great sense of humour.” [quote credit=”Devastated pal”]Breaking isn’t going to be the same with you gone. Hope you’re still dancing out there in the skies.[/quote] Mum to Sam’s three half-sisters, she added: “This is so horrible for the family. They loved him, they were all quite close. “My youngest daughter rang me on Monday and told me what Sam had happened and said Sam had been bullied. “It doesn’t bear thinking about. It’s awful. “My girls have said there was stuff said online about Sam. “Lots of children are bullied but this must have been horrendous. “If Sam was being bullied at school, then why weren’t the school doing anything?” ‘BULLIED TO DEATH’ One of Sam’s friends also said he was being bullied and would sit on his own in the playground at break time. Despite multiple reports of bullying Salesian School have said they have no record of Sam being bullied. More than 25 floral tributes have been left on the gates of the station as stunned well-wishers pay their respects.

It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes. And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women. Yet it’s rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now. That is why The Sun launched the You’re Not Alone campaign.

She said: “It was so sad. Children were running around crying and screaming. “One young girl came in the shop in tears and was screaming ‘I’ve seen it all’. “We looked out and saw the train on the platform and put two and two together. “The kids on the platform didn’t know what to do.” SOBBING PALS CALLED HIS NAME Horrified witnesses also claimed sobbing pupils had called out Sam’s name after he was struck by the train. A school spokesman said they had “no record” of Sam being bullied and couldn’t make any further comment. Headteacher James Kibble said the school is “devastated” and it will be holding a series of assemblies to help students come to terms with the tragedy.
