Manchester United

Jesse Lingard’s future decided already



Jesse Lingard has already decided his Man United future amidst interests from Aston Villa ahead of the January winter transfer window.

He has failed to make a single appearance for Man Utd in the Premier League or Champions League this season which is enough reason for him to want to leave Old Trafford, a decision the club is aware of.

The 27-year-old is already attracting interests from a number of clubs in the Premier League with Aston Villa mentioned as a possible destination where he will not struggle to find playing time as well as get his career back on track.

Jesse Lingard’s situation at Man United can be traced to the hip injury he has had in the past. He is now down the pecking order and not favoured for selection by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

His contract will run out it the summer with the Red Devils making efforts to convince him of a contract extension or trigger a 12-month extension to keep him at the club but from all indications, the England international is not interested in staying with the Red Devils again.

A host of clubs, including Aston Villa, West Brom, Leicester City, Everton, Tottenham and Old Firm duo Celtic and Rangers are all waiting to land Jesse Lingard.

Sky Sports News’ Dharmesh Sheth, has revealed that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big fan of Jesse Lingard and he is keen to keep the academy graduate, 27, at the club.

He said: “Like Paul Pogba, he’s got a year left on his contract, another option of 12 months as well.

“Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Lingard to stay, Lingard loves United, but he can’t be given assurances on first-team football. He’s not in the first XI at the moment and very rarely makes the bench it has to be said. He’s unlikely to get those reassurances of playing time in the future.

“So decisions have to be made for Lingard, and indeed Pogba, but they will be made once United have a better idea of potential arrivals.”

Meanwhile, Man United have dropped from the Champions League to the Europa League after a defeat in their last game. This could force some changes, starting from the January winter transfer window.

France international Paul Pogba could be the first to part ways with the Red Devils with his manager insisting that his client is not happy at Old Trafford and wants to leave the club.

Danny Murphy

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Why Man Utd may not win trophy



Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

What Solskjaer said about Man Utd 2-1 defeat to Young Boys




Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
