[…]Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils host Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday evening and have the chance to close the gap to Manchester City at the top of the table. They could be without one of their first-choice defenders, though, with the Norwegian revealing that the former Benfica man was missing from training after his return from international duty.
Manchester United could revisit a move for Borussia Dortmund and England star Jadon Sancho this summer.
Last year, United saw their pursuit of the winger end in disappointment as they failed to agree terms and the 21-year-old remained with the Bundesliga side.
now report that the Old Trafford club could reignite talks.
Erling Haaland is still the Dortmund player of greatest interest to United but, having closed negotiations with Sancho's agent Emeka Obasi last year, they may be reopened for the winger.

Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke last week admitted the club would be prepared to sell Sancho for an 'exceptional offer'.
'I'm not getting involved in probabilities, it's no good. Jadon Sancho has been with us much longer than Erling Haaland. We'll have to speak to Jadon, too,' he said.
'If there is an exceptional offer we will discuss it with the player and the agent, as always.'
United have recruited Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri for a combined £46million and both youngsters play on the right, the same side as Sancho.
Dortmund enraged by awful decision to rule out Jude Bellingham goal
The 17-year-old Englishman appeared to tackle Ederson cleanly, winning the ball, with the goalkeeper actually catching Bellingham on his follow through rather than the other way around. With Bellingham poised to roll the ball into an empty net, the referee blew his whistle for a free-kick to City and booked Bellingham, meaning he could not overrule his decision and allow the goal if he had looked at VAR replays.

And though a transfer seems less likely than last season, the fall in Sancho's value could be tempting.
Pandemic-hit finances mean a lower transfer fee and Dortmund's poor Bundesliga campaign - they are seven points off the Champions League places - have combined to make an exit for a reasonable sum more realistic.
The MEN report that United were surprised by Sancho's salary demands and scant progress was made at the negotiating table.
The former Manchester City academy starlet is contracted to Dortmund until 2023 and has managed to bag 12 goals and lay on 16 assists this term despite battling injuries.
United are prioritising a striker and centre-back but could be tempted to have another go at signing Sancho this summer.
