Man United handed major boost in their pursuit of Barcelona attacker

Published

on

La Liga giants Barcelona are reported to be open to parting ways with their star winger Ousmane Dembele amid interests from English Premier League outfit Man United for his service.

The Red Devils have been in the chase of Ousmane Dembele for the past months.

Efforts to have him join Old Trafford last summer failed after the player refused to give his nod to the move despite Barcelona’s willingness to sell.

Man United wanted Ousmane Dembele as an alternative after failing to convince German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund on a fee for England international winger Jadon Sancho.

Now that the Red Devils are yet to secure their top target, Jadon Sancho, Ousmane Dembele will be a good deal, especially as he is now available for a transfer.

So far this season, the World Cup winner has scored three times and provided one assist in nine games for the Catalan giants but that has not granted his stay at Camp Nou as he is not in the plans of manager Ronald Koeman.

When manager Ronald Koeman newly signed for Barcelona, he was asked about Ousmane Dembele, he said “What is certain in the world? I don’t know. At the moment, he’s a Barcelona player. There’s still one day left for incomings and outgoings. We’ll see.”

Now it is certain that he is not needed at the club as Barcelona are looking forward to land Brazilian international Neymar and must create space for him. The Paris Saint Germain player has not hidden this desire to play with Argentina star Lionel Messi again.

Young Barcelona star Ansu Fati ensured Ousmane Dembele had a fewer playing time with his rise to form. He was injured with expectations that the France international will take over the role but that might not happen if Barcelona receives an offer in the January winter transfer window.

However, reports say Barcelona have already been talking to Man United on the possibility of landing the France international while the former Borussia Dortmund player is aware of the talks.

Man United are now willing to have Ousmane Dembele on a loan deal with an option to make his mover permanent next summer but that seems to be against the wish of the player.

Ousmane Dembele might have changed his mind and now ready for a move but he has given the condition that he would only go on a permanent transfer, not on loan.

Arsenal join Man United in race to sign interesting EPL midfielder

Published

Arsenal have joined other Premier League sides in the race to sign Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo this summer transfer window.

Mikel Arteta and Edu have both assured that the club will still do some businesses before this summer transfer window ends and a midfielder is one of the positions being considered.

Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans was the main target for the Gunners but interest seems that have cooled off for his services with Moises Caicedo now being mentioned.

However, Arsenal will battle Manchester United among suitors looking to snap the Ecuadorian starlet up before the summer transfer deadline.

Brighton only signed Caicedo from Independiente del Valle in a £4.5million deal in February 2021 and he is already being linked away after impressing last season.

According to the Sunday Mirror, Arsenal and United join West Ham United, Atletico Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen and Juventus in monitoring his situation and could be picked up by the highest bidder.

Caicedo has earned his plaudits as a defensive midfielder, boasting of pace, power and technical ability. This makes it difficult for Brighton to let go of him because they have got no viable replacement and they are not under any pressure to sell.

United urged to copy Arsenal and be slow in making this sack decision

Published

Man United have been urged to act like Arsenal and be slow in making a sack decision for manager Erik ten Hag.

The former Ajax boss has had a difficult start of his spell at Old Trafford with the latest 4-0 humiliation against Brentford.

However, Man United correspondent for Goal, James Robson on his Twitter handle said Erik ten Hag should be given time.

“Obvious echos of Arsenal’s start last season & look at them now. Arteta’s plan for young players & dumping big names was backed at huge expense. Two summer windows and they are transformed. #mufc bought into Ten Hag’s vision, but haven’t given him the players he needs.

“This isn’t to say Arsenal are the perfect model or that they’ll even get into the Champions League this season. They won’t trouble City or Liverpool – but they are about as good as United can hope for unless they spend the sort of transformative money to get in contention.

“City finished third in Guardiola’s first season because the players couldn’t play his way. They spent £260m+ on a squad that already had KdB, Aguero, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Kompany, Sterling, Sane, Stones…

“That is how successive United managers thought they would be able to operate. It doesn’t excuse of wasted money wasted – but when you spend every window trying to find that one transformative signing, it leads to panic buys and an imbalanced squad.

“Ten Hag is trying to spread his v limited budget thin to bulk out his squad, with the majority put aside for De Jong. But the early signs are that it’s not touching the sides.
Existing players can’t play his way. New players are getting swamped in the ensuing mess.

“How many times can anyone remember seeing Eriksen caught in possession like he has been in a United shirt? He gets the ball and there are so few options to move it on that things like yesterday happen.

“I don’t see Rabiot changing that dynamic on his own. But really wouldn’t be surprised if he was the only other midfielder United sign this summer.”

Gary Neville reveals ONE major problem United have with this summer transfer window

Published

on

Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville, has claimed a major problem the Red Devils have is that players are not eager to join the club anymore.

Neville made this claim after United were thrashed 4-0 by Brentford on Saturday to make it their second defeat in as many games this season.

According to Neville, United cannot sort out their woes by signing new players, who are not even enticed by money.

This is as he suggested that attempts to make new signings will not pull any positive result because they might not be able to get the best of the players.

He told Sky Sports: “That’s the problem now. United in the past have always answered the fans’ anger through money and spending in the transfer market.

“The problem is that no, no one wants to take their money. That’s a massive issue. They can’t spend the money.

‘If you’re a player watching that performance in the first half what are you thinking about coming to this club?”

Following the two defeats in two games, there are fears that the Red Devils will have to battle their lives out in the next game against Liverpool next weekend. This leaves new manager Erik ten Hag in a difficult situation.

How United missed out on big Chelsea player before Stamford Bridge exit

Published

on

Manchester United missed out on signing Timo Werner from Chelsea before the striker rejoined RB Leipzig, according to reports.

The situation at Old Trafford calls for a new striker as Anthony Martial is injured, Marcus Rashford badly out of form and Cristiano Ronaldo still keen to leave the club.

However, the Red Devils were keen on signing Werner before he opted to return to Leipzig after his struggles at Stamford Bridge.

The German international striker has returned to the Bundesliga side on a four-year deal in a transfer worth a reported £25m after failing to live up to expectations at the Stamford Bridge.

While he scored 95 goals and 40 assists in 159 games before moving to Chelsea in 2020 for £47.5m, Werner scored just 23 goals in 89 matches across all competitions for Chelsea.

‘I am incredibly grateful for the time I spent at this special club,’ Werner said about his time at Chelsea.

‘I felt so much love and support throughout the last two years and I will never forget how you guys stood behind me in good and in challenging times!’

Quizzed about rejoining Leipzig, Werner added: ‘I had a great time here between 2016 and 2020, when we performed brilliantly as newcomers in the league.

‘It was a dignified departure for me to leave the club as record goal scorer, but that’s in the past now and I’m looking ahead, because both I and the club have developed in the past two years.

‘I had two great years at Chelsea that I’m really grateful for. The experience to play abroad in a new league really helped me and my career.

‘Now I’m looking forward to the new season with RB Leipzig and above all to meeting the Leipzig fans again, who mean a great deal to me.’

Real Madrid legend, Guti, has told Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo that a move to Atletico Madrid this summer won’t be an idea.

The La Liga side have indicated interest in signing Ronaldo and they meet his demand of Champions League football. Guti said Atletico Madrid is a good side for the veteran to join.

He told DAZN: “If in this case, he decides to come to Atletico Madrid, why not? It’s a great team, he is a great striker. Atletico Madrid needs a good striker and why not? I think it would be a good pairing.”

Guti added, “It would be strange, because Madrid loves him so much because he’s a very loved player. I think that the Real Madrid fans wouldn’t mind. I think that everything Cristiano had to give to Real Madrid, he already gave. If he feels happy being able to play in a great team like Atletico and in the Spanish league, which I think he wants, why not?”

Meanwhile Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is understood to have already offered the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to Atletico Madrid which makes a deal possible.

But Guti believes this would be a great move for both parties as they will complement each other.

“I don’t think I have said anywhere that I am leaving, so there is definitely a chance that I will stay.

“I’m open for a cup of coffee with the management – or coffee for them and water for me. We’ll see how it goes. ”
