on

Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips is subject to interest from Man United and Liverpool but reports claim he has already made his choice.

It is understood that he would prefer to join Liverpool ahead of Manchester United.

The report also claims that Phillips’ preference would be to join Liverpool as he is ‘concerned’ about the negative impact he and his family could endure if he moved to Old Trafford due to the bitter rivalry between Leeds and Manchester United.

Analysis have proved that Phillips would fit into Man United if he is to join.

Speaking earlier this month, former Leeds defender Danny Mills believes Phillips would have no issue with getting in United’s team.

‘Alan Smith went and I think the fans understood it but didn’t particularly like it and some will never forgive him for that,’ Mills told Football Insider.

‘I understand that because there will always be a bitter rivalry between the two.

‘Would he fit in Manchester United’s team? Would he play? Without a shadow of a doubt, yes. Would he improve them? Yes.

‘Whether you like it or not as a Leeds fan, Manchester United are a global entity, you can’t argue with that.’

Howbeit, the attention for Man United at the moment is getting back to winning ways and not signing up new players.

Football News: Liverpool and Manchester United News

Welcome to another episode of premier league results. We’ve got matchups involving Liverpool, West Ham, and Manchester United to dissect.

From heated exchanges between Mo Salah and Jürgen Klopp to sarcastic draws of Manchester United.

Burnley held down Manchester United to get away from relegation

Burnley held down Manchester United to escape Relegation.

Manchester United missed a chance for a crucial win as they drew 1-1 against Burnley at Old Trafford. Anthony’s goal in the 79th minute seemed to seal the deal, but Burnley’s Zeki Amdouni equalized with a late penalty.

The game was action-packed, with a total of 43 shots, 17 of them on target. Despite United’s efforts, including hitting the post and impressive saves from goalkeeper Andre Onana, they couldn’t hold on to their lead.

The draw makes United’s hopes for a top-five finish in the Premier League uncertain, while Burnley missed a chance to climb out of the relegation zone. It also highlights United’s defensive weaknesses compared to previous seasons.

Although United continue to create scoring opportunities, their defense remains a concern, especially with the upcoming FA Cup final against Manchester City. Burnley’s Dara O’Shea stood out with his solid defensive performance, including a crucial last-minute tackle.

Liverpool dropped more points in the Title Race.

Liverpool had another disappointing moment in their title chase against West Ham, settling for a frustrating 2-2 draw. Despite a spirited fightback with goals from Robertson and an unintentional gift from West Ham’s keeper, Liverpool couldn’t seal the deal, conceding late to Michail Antonio.

Klopp’s touchline tiff with Salah added to the drama, hinting at underlying tensions. Visibly disappointed but unwilling to dwell on the title race, Klopp focused on the missed opportunities and the team’s efforts amidst a grueling schedule.

It’s a tough pill for Liverpool, sitting third and chasing shadows behind City and Arsenal. With every game crucial, Klopp’s farewell season risks ending on a sour note if they can’t turn things around soon. 

The frustration is palpable as Liverpool’s chances slip away, leaving fans and players alike wondering what could’ve been. It’s a rollercoaster ride of emotions, but with time running out, Liverpool needs to find their winning form fast to keep their title dreams alive.

Jürgen Klopp and Mo Salah heated argument

The Salah-Klopp showdown at Liverpool has fans buzzing with speculation about Salah’s future. 

After that heated touchline clash caught on camera, Salah dropped a cryptic bomb, saying there’d be “fire” if he spilled the beans. Klopp tried to play it down, saying they hashed it out behind closed doors, but Salah’s silence speaks volumes.

Advertisement

With Liverpool’s season taking a nosedive lately – crashing out of cups and losing ground in the league – Salah’s exit feels more real than ever. 

Despite his heroics, his age and contract situation are like ticking time bombs. Remember that hefty offer from Al-Ittihad last summer? Liverpool said no, but a summer transfer might be on the cards with Salah hitting 32 and his contract winding down.

Sure, Liverpool will pocket less cash this time, but every penny counts. Just look at Sadio Mane’s saga – left for Bayern, now chilling in Saudi Arabia

Liverpool can’t afford to miss the boat again. As Salah’s future hangs in the balance, Liverpool’s bigwigs have some serious thinking to do. It’s a game of timing, and they better get it right.

Conclusion

The last games of the Premier League have been nothing short of intense. Liverpool’s frustration against West Ham and the heated exchange between Klopp and Salah say much about the Duo’s future at Anfield.

Manchester United’s draw with Burnley highlights defensive struggles.

Liverpool is far behind other title contenders— Arsenal and Manchester City- and it’s safe to say that they are no longer title contenders.

Transfer News: Lindelof, Andriy Lunin, Miguel Gutierrez and Manchester United

Lindelof Out Miguel Gutierrez in for Man United

As reports suggest, Manchester United is eyeing a summer move for Girona defender Miguel Gutierrez. The 22-year-old Spaniard has attracted interest from the Premier League following an impressive season, contributing with one goal and six assists from left-back. 

With United looking to bolster their defensive line, Gutierrez emerges as a potential target, especially with the backing of Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s investment in the club. However, competition from Arsenal and West Ham could complicate matters.

Meanwhile, Turkish publication A Spor reports that Galatasaray targets Victor Lindelof for a summer transfer. The 29-year-old Swedish centre-back only has a year left on his contract with United and is seen as a prime defensive option for the Turkish club. 

Miguel Gutierrez to Manchester United

With United expected to strengthen their defence, Lindelof could be surplus to requirements, potentially fetching a fee of £15-20 million.

Liverpool shows interest in Chelsea’s Levi Colwill.

Liverpool is seriously considering a move for Levi Colwill from Chelsea, with talks ongoing between the two clubs. Colwill, valued at around £40 million, has caught Liverpool’s eye due to his potential and talent. 

Despite Chelsea’s reluctance to part ways with him, the club’s need to balance finances may push them to consider offers for Colwill and other homegrown players.

Chelsea’s disappointing season, marked by a lack of European qualification and missed cup opportunities, has pressured the club to restructure. 

With Colwill’s contract expiring soon and interest from other clubs, including Tottenham, Chelsea may be forced to make tough decisions about their roster.

Advertisement

Liverpool, in need of defensive reinforcements following Joel Matip’s departure, sees Colwill as a viable option. The 21-year-old’s loan spell at Brighton showcased his abilities, leading to interest from multiple clubs. 

While Chelsea has resisted previous offers for Colwill, Liverpool’s persistence and the player’s openness to a move could sway the decision.

Reports suggest that Chelsea is considering offloading Colwill and other homegrown talents like Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja to fund new signings. 

Despite Colwill’s potential and Chelsea’s reluctance to sell, financial considerations may ultimately dictate the club’s decision.

Manchester United set their sight on Andriy Lunin.

Manchester United is in the mix to snatch Real Madrid’s goalkeeper Andriy Lunin, alongside Paris Saint Germain and Bayern Munich.

It seems United isn’t entirely satisfied with their current goalie situation despite signing Andre Onana last summer for a hefty £47 million from Inter Milan.

Onana’s had his fair share of ups and downs, especially with some noticeable blunders in the Champions League. But even though he’s been stepping up in the Premier League lately, the rumour mill keeps churning about United eyeing another shot-stopper.

Lunin’s the latest name in the mix. The 25-year-old’s been warming Real Madrid‘s bench for a while but got his chance due to some goalie shuffles with Thibaut Courtois and Kepa Arrizabalaga. Now, with interest from United, PSG, and Bayern, he’s contemplating a switch.

Advertisement

His agent, Jorge Mendes, is probably juggling offers from these big clubs, making it a crucial moment for Lunin’s career. Even though Real Madrid wants to keep him, and his contract runs until 2025, the allure of playing for clubs like United might sway him.

Conclusion

Today’s football transfer updates showcased the strategic tango between clubs, players, and agents. 

From Manchester United’s potential move for Andriy Lunin to the buzz around the signing of Miguel Gutierrez. 

Chelsea’s discussions over Colwill and Victor Lindelof’s potential departure from United add to the drama.

Arne Slot to Replace Jürgen Klopp at Liverpool

Arne Slot is expected to take over as the new manager at Liverpool, replacing the outgoing Jurgen Klopp. Negotiations with Feyenoord are underway, with Liverpool keen to secure Slot’s release. 

Slot believes an agreement will be reached soon, despite Feyenoord holding out for a record fee of £10-£12m. He expressed confidence in the negotiation process and his desire to join Liverpool. 

Slot’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta, has a good relationship with Liverpool, and personal terms are not expected to be an issue. Slot has been successful at Feyenoord, winning the Eredivisie title last season. Not only that but also reaching the Europa Conference League final in 2022.

Arne to Liverpool Liverpool’s pursuit of Klopp’s successor has been data-driven, and Slot fits the criteria set out by Fenway Sports Group.

The club has been restructuring behind the scenes, appointing a new sporting director and strengthening the recruitment department.

Arsenal handed a four-person transfer boost

Arsenal’s gearing up for a power-packed summer, with former Gunner Mikael Silvestre tipping them to go all-in for some top talent. He’s got his eye on Victor Osimhen or Ollie Watkins up front, plus Crystal Palace gems Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze out wide. Silvestre reckons these signings could give Arsenal the firepower they need to keep their Premier League title dreams alive.

He’s singing the praises of Osimhen and Watkins, saying they could bag 30-40 goals a season with the exemplary service from Arsenal’s midfield maestros. And when it comes to Olise and Eze, he’s all about their flair and unpredictability, seeing them as game-changers on the wings.

Oshimen to Arsenal

Watkins has been lighting up the pitch for Aston Villa, notching an impressive 26 goals and 12 assists this season. Osimhen’s been no slouch either, hitting 15 goals for Napoli. And over at Palace, Olise and Eze have been making waves with their goal-scoring and playmaking skills.

But snagging these talents won’t be a walk in the park, especially with Watkins recently committing to Villa with a new deal.

Advertisement

Still, if Arsenal can pull it off, these signings would give them the edge they need to compete for silverware next season. It’s an exciting time for Arsenal fans, with dreams of glory on the horizon.

Michael Olise has a clever contract clause that may cost Man Utd millions more to land a deal.

Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise is on Manchester United’s radar for the upcoming transfer window, but luring him might come with a hefty price tag. Ollise has been turning heads lately, especially alongside Eberechi Eze under manager Oliver Glasner.

United’s interested, but Palace won’t let Olise go cheaply. They’re asking for over £60 million, and Eze’s in the same boat.

Both players signed long deals, but these tricky release clauses are involved. Last year, Chelsea tried to swoop in for Olise, but Palace stood firm.

Despite the speculation, Olise seems happy where he is, only eyeing a move to a club that matches his style and ambition. Even former United striker Dwight Yorke thinks Olise and Eze would be game-changers in the United attack, urging the club’s owners to make a move.

Conclusion

What a day in football! It looks like Liverpool’s getting closer to naming Arne Slot as their new coach, which could shake things up at Anfield. 

And Arsenal fans, myself included, are buzzing about the rumours of us snagging Osimhen, Watkins, Olise, and Eze – talk about a boost! And now, to top it off, it seems Manchester United’s eyeing Olise, too. 

The summer transfer window’s heating up, and I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds!

According to Romano’s updates, Martial won’t return for the Red Devils anytime soon. Instead, he’ll use his recovery period to carefully consider his options without the hassle of club negotiations hanging over his head.

Despite his ups and downs at Old Trafford, Martial still holds a transfer value of 19.7 million euros. While he’s had stellar seasons, including his impressive debut in 2015-16 and a strong showing in 2019-20, his international career could have been smoother.

Liverpool vs Man City 

Liverpool versus Man City is another enthralling episode of the long-standing rivalry between Jurgen Klopp and Guardiola. The showdown at Anfield was nothing short of a footballing epic and a true display of the strategic minds of Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola. 

Liverpool vs Man City

City-Liverpool 1-1 Draw Raises Stakes

The first half witnessed City’s ascendancy as John Stones exploited a brilliantly orchestrated set-piece delivered by the maestro Kevin De Bruyne. The precision of Stones’ finish left Liverpool trailing and set the stage for a riveting encounter.

The narrative took a dramatic turn early in the second half when Nathan Ake’s critical error, an under-hit back pass, gave Liverpool a lifeline in the form of a penalty. 

Alexis Mac Allister calmly converted, leveling the score and compounding City’s challenges as goalkeeper Ederson exited due to an injury sustained in the penalty incident.

Liverpool’s injury-plagued lineup welcomed Mohamed Salah back from the bench, injecting energy into the home side. Luis Diaz, a constant threat in Liverpool’s attacks, faced staunch resistance from City’s solid defense and the unflappable Stefan Ortega, who stepped in for the injured Ederson.

A pivotal moment unfolded with a VAR-reviewed incident involving City’s Jeremy Doku. His challenge on Mac Allister sparked heated debates, with Klopp passionately advocating for a penalty. VAR, however, upheld the on-field decision, leaving fans and pundits divided on the contentious call.

Guardiola’s strategic brilliance came to the fore with a surprising substitution, replacing Kevin De Bruyne with Mateo Kovacic. The move, aiming for possession and control, paid more dividends than most foresee. Kovacic’s calm influence helped City navigate the charged atmosphere of Anfield.

The match climaxed in the dying minutes when Jeremy Doku’s strike hit the post, narrowly missing a late winner for City.
