GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS
Man United booked their place in the Europa League final despite losing 3-2 in Rome.
Edinson Cavani scored twice in a thriller against the Italians, who gave the Red Devils a hard-fought game.
But United held out to ensure their first-leg thrashing helped them set up a final clash against Villarreal.
The Spaniards secured a 0-0 result at the Emirates to dump out Arsenal, who put in a below-par performance.
The Gunners hit the post twice through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as they struggled to create chances.
And Arsenal ultimately failed to find the one single goal needed to reach the final, piling the pressure on Mikel Arteta.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are reportedly on the brink of signing RB Leipzig ace Ibrahima Konate after agreeing personal terms with the defender.
Fabrizio Romano told TalkSport: “It is really, really close. it is just a matter of time.
“The agreement with the player is done. They want to sign the player. It is just a case of the clubs negotiating.
“The player wants to go. It is a five-year contract. In some weeks, it will be complete.”
Finally, Barcelona have reportedly stepped up transfer talks with outgoing Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero.
Sky Sports claims negotiations have already been held between Nou Camp chiefs and Aguero’s representatives after City confirmed he will leave upon expiry of his contract this summer.
Barca are apparently eager to appease star man Lionel Messi, 33, who is edging towards staying put after trying to leave last year.
One way to convince Messi to remain would be to sign 32-year-old Aguero, one of his best pals and an international teammate with Argentina.
