REPORT: Hibs plans permanent deal with Will Fish

OPINION: United have two months to persuade Bellingham and Osimhen to join
Erik ten Hag demanded a response from his team Manchester United after the Liverpool defeat. This negative reaction is not only bound to come against Real Betis tonight, but in the coming months.
The way United have been humiliated has called into question how much has really changed this season and whether Ten Hag's revolution has really been as successful as it seemed a week ago.
United did what they hadn't done for almost six years when they won the Carabao Cup at Wembley and then followed up with something they hadn't done for 92 years and lost by seven goals.
The task now is not just to bounce back with a dominating performance against Real Betis on Thursday night, but to prove that Anfield's annihilation was a unique and rare result that will always be viewed as an anomaly.
This is particularly important as the next two months of the season will effectively act as a selling point for any summer recruit as United look to convince key targets why a season-ending move to Manchester would be best.

Plano Marcus Rashford
Real Betis defender Youssouf Salaby detailed his diligent approach in managing Marcus Rashford during Thursday's Europa League clash.
The key to keeping Real Madrid in check in Sunday's 0-0 draw was a strong defensive display from right-back Salaby, who kept Vinicius Jr calm at the Estadio Benito Villamarín.
And with another huge task in managementRaschfordAccording to his own statements, the 30-year-old worked intensively on his preparationIF:
“I've seen United game clips but we all know their big names. They are very dangerous offensively, it's a very complete team. I study the player I'm facing to see if they tend to exploit speed or to know how to defend them."

Final preparations for Betis tonight
OPINION: United have better chances of signing forwards than Harry Kane
Harry Kane's smartest move before the end of the season would be to appoint a new agent. Charlie Kane advised his brother to sign another six years, his prime, with trophy-less Tottenham in 2018. Replacing Charlie with a specialized middleman would be a more clinical move than any of Kane's finales.
Glory Glory was not due to return to Spurs five years ago. When Kane wrote his signature on those papers, Tottenham had just lost their second consecutive FA Cup semi-final and ended up behind Manchester United in the Premier League table. that is, they peaked with Mauricio Pochettino.
A chance appearance in the Champions League final in 2019 confirmed Kane's loyalty, but Spurs didn't appear in the Madrid final. Since then they have named two serial winners to train and coax the club into victory. Jose Mourinho was dropped six days before the cup final and Antonio Conte is unlikely to be at Spurs next season as Kane.

Pellegrini shares his thoughts on United's defeat
Speaking to the media yesterday, Pellegrini made it clear he wasn't sad to see United lose at the weekend.
It was really amazing. I watched the first 45 minutes because then we had to play Real Madrid, so I couldn't see when Liverpool scored the other six goals. But of course I immediately understood what was going to happen at Manchester United. In the rivalry with Liverpool, they would not find it easy to concede so many goals. But I'm also a Manchester City fan, so I wasn't too sad about what happened.

"If it was my son, I would hit him" - Ten Hag gave strange advice on how to deal with Garnacho
Former River Plate manager Néstor Gorosito has offered Garnacho some advice after he recently came under fire in his home country for making fun of Barcelona.
Speak withAGB Sport, sage Gorosito:
You always have to prioritize the group, that's the most important thing. The rules are clear and must be followed by everyone from the youngest to the oldest player, including the coaching staff. Seek respect, try to get him on your side so he doesn't do crazy things, I don't know of any player who doesn't conform, not because of a suit but by persuading him, showing him what's good and what's bad? He (Garnacho) will make mistakes because he's 20 years old and then he's bound to make mistakes, that's part of life. We have to understand that it's a different generation than us and that the kids who talk nonsense on the internet have 70 million followers, they don't pay anywhere, they have a German car, saying nonsense is a different generation and I think it's nonsense . If it's one of my sons, I'll smack him on the neck with my open hand, but that's how it is.
The former Liverpool star names Roy Keane the next perfect manager
Former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse believes Roy Keane would be the perfect next manager for United.
Speak withHerr PingCissé believes the former captain is an ideal choice for the Reds having previously worked with him at Sunderland.
I think Keane can manage Manchester United for sure. He knows the club, the city and everything by heart. There he knows everything. He is a club legend who has managed the team. They would be a perfect match. Roy Keane as a person was very different from what everyone says about him as he was angry and screaming all the time. He was actually very calm. He was a fair coach, if you were a better player than someone in your position you would play in his place. It was a short time but I really enjoyed it.
United said Rabiot would do better for Arsenal
Former Chelsea player Florent Malouda has revealed itBet on DAZNthat Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot would be a better fit for Arsenal than United.
Reports this week have linked United with another move to Rabiot in the summer after talks collapsed last year.
However, the Frenchman was pushed for a move to the Emirates:
Adrien Rabiot would be a good signing. He is fit and plays a lot. But I think he would be a better fit for Arsenal than Man Utd. Although his skills make him a great new signing for everyone, he can play in many different positions. But it's important that he has a connection with the coach, that he's used well. He's very talented. You can see it in France, he does a lot of work, a lot of dirty work, to compensate for attacking players and help balance every team. He's a talented player.

"We tried to control the game when it was 2-0 and 3-0, we talked but I think we didn't quite agree on what to do. Listen, it happened, the only thing what we can do is learn." " From there and on. I'm happy and grateful that we're getting another game so quickly because we have a chance to relegate from the last game and get it over with."
