A new Danish goalkeeper on the sidelines, 20 years old, set to take over from Peter? Jimmy has never hidden the fact that Peter Schmeichel is his big hero and a dream move to Manchester United is his big dream would be a carrer at Old Trafford! PIC Jimmy's dream may well come true as last Tuesday whilst Jimmy played for Denmark U21's v Scotland Alex Ferguson's brother was there to check him out. Reports were so good that United have taken steps to possibly secure his services soon to become apprentice to Peter Schmeichel. PIC Jimmy's agent Vincenzo Morabito has confirmed United's interest. Jimmy's current contract with Aalborg FC runs to 2001 If United are interested then his contract does not have any limits.

Cruyff, who has been out since he suffered a hairline fracture of his right ankle on February 21, scored in the 6-1 victory. The Dutch international has been dogged by injury all season and he has made just seven appearances. In August he suffered ankle ligament damage and, after two games back, he needed surgery on the injury in November. A thigh injury thwarted his return at Christmas before he finally fought his way back to full fitness only to fracture his ankle against Derby in February. Marcus.

Martin Edwards, chairman of the club and chief executive of Manchester United plc, said that the board had agreed a fee of around £10 million for Salas and had approved his personal terms, but Ferguson decided at the last minute that he preferred to stick with Andy Cole. "The board would have supported buying Salas," Edwards said yesterday, "but as we were reviewing the situation, Cole was knocking in goals for fun. It was an either-or situation. There was no way we could have played both and it was a management decision to stick with Cole." Edwards added that the decision not to sign Salas was made by Ferguson, who had travelled to South America to watch the striker play, even before his performance at Wembley against England. "The deal was more or less done," Edwards said. Instead, Salas signed for Lazio, the Italian Serie A club, for a fee reported to be £12 million. However, Edwards confirmed yesterday that the fee that Manchester United had agreed was less - around £10 million. Ferguson and Edwards have worked together for more than ten years and the United chairman stood by the manager during the club's lean spell in the early 1990s when Ferguson came close to resigning as United's poor form took them to the bottom of what was then the first division. Until Edwards's comments yesterday it was thought that the manager had been desperate to sign Salas, but that the board of the public company had refused to come up with the funds. The club also revealed yesterday that it has earmarked upwards of £60 million to secure the long-term careers of six of their best young players. Edwards confirmed that Gary and Phil Neville had both signed new, seven-year contracts and that Ryan Giggs last week put pen to paper on a five-year deal. In addition, he said, the United board was at present in negotiations with Paul Scholes, David Beckham and Nicky Butt in an attempt to extend their tenures at the club. Giggs has signed a contract worth nearly £20,000 a week. The Neville brothers will not earn as much, but their deals would still be worth in excess of £5 million, including bonuses and clauses, over the seven-year term of their con-tracts. "We have a commitment to keeping the best young players at this club," Edwards said. "We have signed the Neville brothers and Ryan Giggs signed a new extended deal last Tuesday. We are also in negotiations with Butt, Scholes and Beckham. The three of them signed long-term deals only two years ago, but they have come a long way since then and we would hate to lose them." Edwards also recognised the need at the club to extend a squad undermined by injuries and suggested that the manager would be given funding for any player he chooses. Indeed, United can now be expected to move swiftly into the transfer market as the club has funds sitting in the bank and Edwards is keen for them to be used on buying players, to offset against tax on the balance sheet. Ferguson has targeted several players, including Gabriel Batistuta, the Argentina striker, who plays for Fiorentina in Italy, and Rivaldo, the Brazil international who plays for Barcelona. He has also expressed an interest in Japp Stam, the Holland defender, and Didier Deschamps, the France captain. Edwards has other ambitious plans. He confirmed yesterday that the club would be looking to extend Old Trafford's capacity by a further 10,000, taking it to a limit beyond 65,000, and creating a stadium to rival the one planned in the city for the 2002 Commonwealth Games and even Wembley Stadium. "We are well aware that we are turning people away from our games in numbers and we are pursuing ways of increasing the capacity. At this stage, we can't yet say how, but there are plans in process," Edwards said. The chairman also revealed that a clause in the club's sponsorship deal with Sharp had been exercised, giving the Japanese electronics firm a two-year extension of their contract, which is due to expire in the summer. In addition, Edwards disclosed that Manchester United plc would take a 25 per cent stake in a hotel to be built on land near to Old Trafford. "These are exciting times for the club," Edwards said. "We have many plans to increase revenue and a solid base to build on." Amid all the razzmatazz of big business, United also welcomed back an old face. Mick Brown, once assistant manager to Ron Atkinson, is leaving his position as chief scout at Blackburn Rovers to take up a similar post at Old Trafford. It is on the efforts of such as Brown that a vast empire has been built.

UNITED BID TO SIGN TRIO Manchester United are desperate to keep their England midfield trio David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt, chairman Martin Edwards (pictured) has revealed. All three are already under contract until 2001, but United are hoping to sign them up to five-year deals which would keep them at Old Trafford to 2003 Edwards said: "We are in negotiations with Scholes, Butt and Beckham. They signed long-term deals two years ago, but they've come a long way since then and we'd hate to lose them." Gary and Phil Neville have agreed new long-term contracts with Manchester United, signing seven-year deals which will keep the brothers at Old Trafford until 2005. Spokesman Ken Ramsden said: "Both Gary and Phil have agreed seven-year deals, while Ryan Giggs signed a five-year deal last week. It is all part of the club's policy of committing our best young players to the club." The Nevilles had been on five-year contracts which were not due to expire until 2002, but United director Maurice Watkins confirmed the club wanted to reward the pair for their progress.

The pilot of the chartered two-engine British Aerospace 748 aircraft aborted the takeoff after the right engine caught fire. The plane, which only climbed 150 feet, overshot the Stansted Airport runway as it touched down, and the nose wheel collapsed as the craft stopped about 300 feet from the perimeter fence. The only member of the Leeds party to be injured was David O'Leary, assistant manager and former Irish international, who hurt his shoulder. Manager George Graham wasn't on the plane, deciding to stay in London overnight after the team's 3-0 loss to West Ham on Monday. Despite the crash, Leeds said it planned to go ahead with Saturday's Premier League game against Barnsley at Elland Road. "There are no plans for Saturday's game to be canceled at this stage," a club spokesman said. O'Leary was injured opening the emergency exit. "He had to push a window out and he fell out awkwardly," Australian striker Harry Kewell said. "It was a big scare, and I'm still in a bit of shock, so I don't want to say too much about it." Leeds chairman Peter Ridsdale described the dramatic take off. "Everyone on board could see the flames and the explosion and everyone seemed to be shouting: 'Fire! There's a fire!"' he said. "Obviously, we had just taken off. You know the plane is full of fuel and you just hope you land before it explodes." The plane, operated by Belfast-based Emerald Air, carried a crew of four and 40 passengers, including 18 players. Apart from O'Leary's shoulder injury, another had superficial cuts, authorities said. "Just after we took off we heard a big bang and saw the flames from the engine on the right-hand side. We were just off the ground," Norwegian defender Gunner Halle said. "There was a little bit of shouting and I couldn't believe it." Melvyn Seymour, the duty manager at Stansted, praised the skill and poise of the pilot, Capt. John Hacket. "I would think that they had another 30 seconds before there would have been a major fire in the whole thing," Seymour said. The worst air crash involving a British soccer team was 40 years ago, when eight Manchester United players were killed in a crash in Munich, Germany. ________________________ Mike Keeley National Futures Association personal: firstname.lastname@example.org business: email@example.com Keep The Faith -- firstname.lastname@example.org -- Red Til We're Dead -------Manchester United for life not just for Christmas------- Website http://www.red11.org/mufc/mu.htm email@example.com Webmaster: Barry Leeming Theatre Of Dreams: http://Manunited.netlane.com http://www.red11.org/mufc/mu.htm " If ever they are playing in your town You must get to that football ground Take a lesson come to see Football taught by Matt Busby Manchester, Manchester United A bunch of bouncing Busby Babes They deserve to be knighted " $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Calypso available at: http://www.red11.org/mufc/sound/mp3/calypso.mp3 Main Manchester United index: Results : http://www.red11.org/mufc/match.htm News : http://www.red11.org/mufc/munews.htm WhosWho : http://www.red11.org/mufc/whoswho.htm Archive : http://www.red11.org/mufc/archive.htm Pics : http://www.red11.org/mufc/pics.htm Statistics : http://www.red11.org/mufc/stats.htm Reserves : http://www.red11.org/mufc/pontin.htm Team : http://www.red11.org/mufc/player.htm Trophy's : http://www.red11.org/mufc/trophy.htm History : http://www.red11.org/mufc/history.htm Munich : http://www.red11.org/mufc/munich.htm Webring : http://www.red11.org/mufc/manuring.htm ______________
