Solskjaer explains why Jude Bellingham didn’t sign for Man Utd

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shared insights into Manchester United‘s failed bid for Jude Bellingham, shedding light on the club’s pursuit of the talented midfielder.

Bellingham’s rise in football was evident during his time at Birmingham City, where he made a significant impact in the Championship at just 16 years old, catching the attention of top clubs across Europe.

Manchester United was among the clubs vying for his signature, with Solskjaer eager to add Bellingham to his squad. The midfielder even visited Carrington with his family to meet with club officials as he deliberated over his next career move.

Ultimately, Bellingham opted to join Borussia Dortmund, a decision that Solskjaer respects but also laments as a missed opportunity to secure a player of Bellingham’s caliber for United.

Speaking on the Stick to Football podcast, Solskjaer said:

“He knew what he wanted.

“Jude, he was in the building. You can’t ask a lot more for a midfielder.

“I was there obviously as the manager, Sir Alex was there. Roy should have been there but you weren’t, Bryan Robson was there and Cantona was there that day when he came to the club.
“We all spoke to him. Of course, we sold it to him as well as we could but he knew what he wanted.

“X amount of minutes in the first team. That’s it. The most mature 17-year-old I’ve ever met in my life.”

'He's had 48 hours' - Arsenal boss shares update on Bukayo Saka after furious penalty demand

Bukayo Saka expressed frustration at not being awarded a penalty after a clash with Manuel Neuer during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

He confronted the referee at full-time and even followed him down the tunnel, a departure from Saka’s typically composed demeanor.

When questioned about Saka’s condition before the upcoming match against Aston Villa on Sunday, Mikel Arteta stated, “Yes, he looked fine this morning.”

“He’s had 48 hours to think about it and it’s done.”

Arteta chose not to address the incident after the game, but there was a general consensus that Saka’s contact with Neuer was minimal.

Saka faced criticism for his reaction, but given the high emotions of the game, such reactions were not uncommon.

Real Madrid 3-3 Man City: Valverde caps off evening of stunning goals in Champions League thriller

Manchester City and Real Madrid played out an enthralling 3-3 draw in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, setting up an intriguing second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

City took an early lead through Bernardo Silva’s cleverly taken free-kick, but Madrid equalized twice with deflected strikes from Eduardo Camavinga and Rodrygo, which took slight touches off Ruben Dias and Manuel Akanji respectively.

Phil Foden restored City’s lead with a superb strike from outside the box, before Josko Gvardiol scored his first goal for the club with a fine right-footed shot to make it 3-2.

However, Madrid fought back once again, with Federico Valverde’s stunning volley ensuring the tie ended level.

The result leaves the quarter-final finely balanced ahead of the second leg, with City looking to replicate their 4-0 victory over Madrid in last season’s semi-finals at the Etihad Stadium.

There was a late injury concern for City as Foden hobbled off following a late tackle on his ankle, but the extent of the injury is yet to be determined.
