De Gea, 28, has been putting in extra work to improve his skills with the ball fired back towards him.

The Spanish goalkeeper has had coaches working with him since he came back in the summer for pre-season.

An Old Trafford source told The Sun: He has been training exclusively with his feet, at least half-an-hour at a time.

The coaches have him fired repeatedly with ball returns under pressure with various passing options.

They are also doing it because of the recent new rule changes of allowing two defenders inside the penalty area at goal kick.

He has been clipping balls beyond the 18-yard box and into the full-backs and has worked well so far."

The Sun says Maguire, the world's most expensive defender, has NO footwear deal despite his 85million move to Manchester United.

But Nike, Adidas, Puma and Under Armour want him on a long-term contract worth 700,000-a-season.

Maguire, 26, wore 'blacked-out' boots for his United debut against Chelsea last week as he is not committed to a sponsor.

He has been out of contract since the summer and his commercial valued has increased massively since his record-breaking move from Leicester just before the transfer deadline.

Companies have been drawn to Maguire's wholesome image despite becoming a household name after the World Cup last year.

The England defender was named man of the match at Old Trafford after marshaling the United back line to a clean sheet in a 4-0 rout of Chelsea on Sunday.

Nicholas wrote Sky Sports: "I thought Harry Maguire was average, he did everything that was asked of him.

"He was efficient and got about the pitch, but I don't want to hear nonsense about him being a leader and strong on the pitch already, it is too soon.

"He has started well, but I am suspect about the right-back and left-back positions at Man Utd.

"Chelsea could have easily scored two or three. I am still not convinced by Manchester United and I would still sell Paul Pogba."

Toon manager Bruce has decided to leave out the 21-year-old following the 1-0 defeat to Arsenal, according to The Times.

He will be replaced in the starting XI at Carrow Road by South Korean Ki Sung-yueng, who reportedly voiced his displeasure at being dropped against the Gunners.

Longstaff was arguably the biggest success story of Newcastle's season in the 2018/19 campaign.

His performances caught the eye of Manchester United's Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Dutch striker was branded a "snake" and a "traitor" when he left the Gunners for Sir Alex Ferguson's side in a 24million move on this day in August 2012.

He told BT Sport: "You can compare [me being at Arsenal] to being married. Me and my wife - Arsenal - were married for eight years.

"After eight years, my wife, possibly got a bit tired of me. Those are the facts.

"If Arsenal are not offering you a new deal... you can have different views on things but the fact is Arsenal never offered me a new deal.

"Then you have a look around. I was ambitious. I still wanted to win the league. That is life.

"I ended up having three options. One option abroad disappeared quickly. Then it was City or Manchester United.

"What people don't know, during the transfer, loads of things are happening behind the scenes.

"You have to take a lot on and make a choice based on what your targets are but also deal with the facts.

"One of the main facts was that Arsenal got tired of me. That was the starting point - they didn't offer me a new deal.

"We had loads of chats with Wenger, with [Ivan] Gazidis. They gave me no decision to make."

Sanchez is behind the rest of the players in terms of fitness having joined up with them after taking part in the Copa America with Chile. He suffered a hamstring injury in his final game of the competition which also set him back.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Sanchez can be part of it but has to prove himself with arranged games at Carrington and extra training.

He has played in one already against Blackburn.

Solskjaer said: We've had a behind-closed-doors game, he's training, a little bit of extras.

He'll be gradually integrated into more playing time but we'll have more behind closed doors."

The Daily Mail says Conte is pushing his Inter Milan bosses to pursue a deal for United flop Alexis Sanchez.

The Italian manager wants to make Sanchez a key part of his tactical revolution at the San Siro as he transitions the side to play in a 3-5-2; the formation he used in his title-winning season with Chelsea in 2017.

Inter have already shattered their transfer record by landing Romelu Lukaku for 74million from United.

Now Conte would like Inter to splash the cash again on Sanchez and have around 20million to offer in terms of a transfer fee.

Martial has opened up on what manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said to him upon being given it.

"Now that I've taken the number nine shirt back once again, all he (Solskjaer) has said to me is that I have a lot of responsibility and that I have to score goals, so that's what I'm trying to do," Martial told the United App.

"We work on that a lot in training and I think it's improving all the time.

Since I was a young kid, I've always played as a striker but, then again, I'm fine with playing more out wide as it's a position that I enjoy playing.

"It's a real pleasure to find myself back in that more central role so I hope I can really help the team from there and go on to score plenty of goals."
