5pm Man Utd news: Solskjaer goes defensive, Coutinho's Barcelona escape, Ferguson spotted at training

Read on for all of the build up as well as the latest news and transfer stories from Old Trafford.

I'M GUNNAR DEFEND

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER will set his Man United team out to be more defensive against Tottenham than they have so far during his tenure.

The Red Devils have netted 16 goals in his five games in charge – but the Norwegian revealed he will not be going all-out when they travel to Wembley.

NOU START

MAN UNITED will offer Philippe Coutinho a route away from Barcelona after struggling for form in Catalonia.

The former Liverpool attacker has failed to live up to his £145m fee – and has played just 40 minutes in Barca's last three La Liga appearances.

SIR-PRISE

SIR ALEX FERGUSON made another appearance at Man United training in a bid to inspire the side ahead of their clash against Tottenham.

The Red Devils legend joined the squad before last month's 4-1 win over Bournemouth.

LEVY: REMAIN

The Tottenham chairman has made it clear to his board he plans to reject any Old Trafford approach at the end of the season.

MAIN MAN

Dwight Yorke saw it as a team-mate in Manchester United’s Treble-winning campaign of 1999 and now he can see it in him as the club’s interim manager.

RASH KAN DO

The message has come from Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, whose one-on-one attention to Rashford is already bringing its rewards.

'IT WAS INCREDIBLE'

Then he spoke of his intense admiration for Sir Alex Ferguson — an “inspiration” and “footballing encyclopedia” — and referred to Paul Pogba as a “special” player.

OL BE OFF

The ex-United forward, 37, believes the Norwegian deserves the job on a full-time basis after his impressive start at Old Trafford.

WHAT-TAHIT-SON

The youngster, 19, curled in a wonder free-kick for United Under-23s but could not prevent defeat in against Fulham in the Premier League 2.

POG SWAP

The Italian champions are determined to re-sign the Frenchman who returned the Old Trafford in 2016.

PASS MASTER

The £505,000-a-week forward has been heavily criticised since his move from Arsenal a year ago but it appears he has not been given the credit he deserves this term.

MOUR MONEY

The Special One and his agent Jorge Mendes have negotiated a £15m severance payment after he was sacked by the Old Trafford club before Christmas.
