Rumour: Fergie is interested in French midfielder Christian Karembeu
(the dreadlocked one during Euro '96), probably as cover for Beckham.

Subject:(Teamtalk) Team news - Fitness race on It's head count time for Alex Ferguson once again as his players return from international duty ahead of Saturday's important game against Aston Villa at Old Trafford. The boss seems certain to make changes from Sunday's line-up against Leeds and will have more players at his disposal. Ronny Johnsen is set to return to the back four and could be joined by his partner at international level Henning Berg, who is close to playing again after being out of action for almost a month with a knee ligament injury. Jaap Stam is still under treatment for the ankle/Achilles injury which forced him to withdraw from last Sunday's line-up, and Ferguson will check on his progress tomorrow. Earlier in the week Fergie said Stam looked likely to miss the Villa game but would be back in action for Wednesday's trip to Liverpool. Wes Brown, Phil Neville and Nicky Butt arrived back this morning after playing in England's 1-1 draw with Hungary in Budapest, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made the longer journey from Tbilisi where he was on duty for Norway. Solskjaer was one of Norway's scorers in the 4-1 win over Georgia which puts them on top of Group Two in the Euro 2000 tables. He is now not expected to be involved against Aston Villa, despite the injury scare following his half-time substitution for Norway appearing to have been a precaution. Ryan Giggs is another who could step back into the limelight on Saturday having missed the last three games - including the Champions' League semi-final against Juventus, because of an ankle injury. Paul Scholes, Andy Cole and Denis Irwin who have all been in the treatment room this week, should be given the all clear by tomorrow. Jesper Blomqvist completed his first full 90 minutes for a long time as Sweden lost 2-0 in Dublin, signalling a return to full fitness for the winger. Peter Schmeichel was said to be in excellent form for Denmark as they were bombarded by South Africa in a 1-1 draw. Roy Keane will complete a well earned full week's rest on Saturday when he sits out the Villa game through suspension.

Subject: BROWN SIGNS FIVE-YEAR DEAL Manchester United defender Wes Brown has been rewarded with a new five-year contract for his remarkable season for club and country. United began talks with Brown some months ago after he won a regular place in the first-team squad and the 20-year-old has finally put pen to paper on a new deal. The agreement caps a remarkable season for Brown, who is being hailed as the new Paul McGrath. As well as rising through the ranks at Old Trafford, he has enjoyed rapid promotion with England. He played for England in last summer's European Under-18s Championships in Cyprus before becoming a regular with the Under-21s this season. Last night England coach Kevin Keegan handed him his first senior cap in the 1-1 draw against Hungary at Budapest.

Subject: UNITED ROCKED BY SOLSKJAER BLOW Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will miss tomorrow's Premiership clash with Aston Villa and the midweek trip to Liverpool after suffering a knee injury while playing for Norway. Solskjaer damaged ligaments in his right leg during his country's 4-1 win over Georgia and has been told to rest until at least next Saturday. Norway's team doctor Lars Ingebretsen is quoted in The Mirror as saying: "It will take nine days minimum to heal and the only real cure is rest. But to fully recover, he might need longer." With Dwight Yorke beginning to show signs of tiredness after a long season United boss Alex Ferguson will have been looking to use Solskjaer on a more regular basis. But the baby-faced forward has told his manager that he is still determined to do his bit to help bring the Treble to Old Trafford. Solskjaer, who scored in Norway's win, said: "I am willing to do anything Manchester United want me to do, and that includes playing even if I am not 100 per cent fit." He adds in The Express: "I twisted my knee in a tackle and I immediately asked to be substituted because I couldn't perform to my best. "It's a small injury to my ligaments. I don't think it's too serious." © PA Sporting Life

Subject: Plane drama for Solskjaer «« Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the Norwegian squad were caught up in some worrying runway drama as their plane attempted to take off from Tbilisi yesterday. The Norwegians' celebrations after their 4-1 win over Georgia were dampened when an electrical problem caused aeroplane fuel to gush out over the wings and onto some of the players luggage waiting to be loaded. Many of the players, including Solskjaer, checked their fuel-soaked baggage for damage before reboarding and flying back after a lengthy delay. Solskjaer suffered a knock to his knee in the first half of the match and asked to be substituted at the break with his name already on the scoresheet and his side 4-0 up. He later said: "It's not very popular to come back with an injury."

Subject: UNITED TRIO IN FIFA SQUAD French World Cup hero Zinedine Zidane and Manchester United trio David Beckham, Dwight Yorke and Ryan Giggs head a FIFA All Stars squad to play Australia to officially open the new Olympic stadium in Sydney on June 12. FIFA has announced a 32-man provisional squad, to be reduced to a final 18 in mid-May. Australian fans can also anticipate seeing three members of France's 1998 World Cup winning team - Inter Milan midfielder Youri Djorkaeff, Chelsea defender Marcel Desailly and French captain Laurent Blanc. Argentinian striker Gabriel Batistuta's appearance will invoke local memories when the Socceroos went down to the South Americans 2-1 on aggregate in World Cup home and away qualifiers in 1993. The expected 100,000 sell-out crowd will see their overseas-based heroes, Mark Bosnich, Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka, Tony Vidmar, Ned Zelic and Paul Okon in opposition to many of the world's leading players.

Subject: FERGIE SEEKS EDWARDS SUMMIT Alex Ferguson is urgently seeking a top-level summit with chairman Martin Edwards to discover his true spending power this summer. The Manchester United manager's main thoughts are on chasing that historic Premiership, FA Cup and European Cup treble. But Ferguson is well advanced on planning for next season when increased demands at home and abroad will stretch his superstar squad to even greater limits. He needs to know now precisely what funds are available following last summer's ?28million splash on Dwight Yorke, Jaap Stam and Jesper Blomqvist. Ferguson has read, just like the fans, that Edwards has announced that money will be tight after a ?72million investment in new players, ground expansion and the building of a state-of-the-art training complex. Edwards has even gone public to reveal that the ?6million needed to buy a replacement for keeper Peter Schmeichel would be the limit of Ferguson's budget. United's chief powerbroker argues that after committing the club to huge investments the money well has run dry. Edwards confirms: "We can't spend money we haven't got and we are not going to spend money we haven't got. "I wouldn't view it as standing still if we don't spend big money." That line has been drawn despite United being guaranteed ?10m for reaching the European Cup Final with a further ?3.5m if they win it. But Edwards, admits that a ?5million chunk of that booty has already been earmarked for players' bonuses with big money up for grabs at every stage of the treble. There is widespread speculation that other members of the plc are pushing for the release of a larger transfer fund. But Edwards is sticking to his guns and laying it on the line that if new players come in then others will have to go out. Ferguson will press for boardroom talks before the end of the season to hear from the chairman himself if the freeze is in force. Ferguson can save transfer cash if Mark Bosnich is signed on a free. But if Ajax keeper Edwin van der Sar is his man then Edwards' ?6million pot will vanish in one swoop. It is understood that Ferguson's rebuilding plans go well beyond his No.1 position anyway. Ferguson says: "I need to find out exactly how much money we have available. "Obviously the first move is a keeper. We are not close to signing anyone at the moment. We have a couple we are thinking about. I still haven't made up my mind, though."
