Manchester United

Solskjaer told why Varane deal may not be all good



Manchester United are set strike a deal with Real Madrid for Raphael Varane as they are already in talks over a fee. This is after the club have confirmed a £73 million agreement with German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund for Jadon Sancho.

However, Arsenal hero, Ray Parlour thinks that will only increase pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and it might not be good for him.

Parlour claims the big signings Solskjaer is being provided with will only increase that pressure and he can see United changing managers if no silverware is won next term.

“I think [Solskjaer’s] a realistic man,” Parlour said on talkSPORT.

“You’re getting backed because you’re buying players you want – you’ve got to deliver as a manager.

“Some people have probably question-marked Ole a little bit at times.

“That [Europa League] final was disappointing, they should be beating [Villarreal] really.

“I was disappointed that Arsenal didn’t beat them, probably at the time Manchester United were a better team.

“So that was a really disappointing end to the season. But they got into the Champions League, which is very important.

“Now, it’s about winning trophies and he has been backed, he can’t complain about not spending money because they have.

“But you’ve got to deliver as a manager and if you don’t, in the Premier League you’ve seen it so many times, you don’t get a chance.

“We’ve seen [Jose] Mourinho get sacked before a cup final at Spurs. So it’s all about results and it’s all about winning trophies.

“I think Ole knows that and if they don’t do that and they don’t deliver, they’ll be looking for another manager.”

Parlour does believe the arrival of Varane should give United a better chance of ending their wait for a Premier League title.

“Well certainly Varane is a top quality player, I was really impressed with him during the Euros, he’s an excellent defender, so that will be a great signing for Manchester United,” Parlour added.

“I think that [Harry] Maguire and [John] Stones were a very good partnership during the Euros and I can imagine Maguire and Varane will be a decent partnership.

“If you’ve got a good defence you’ve always got a chance, and with the attacking players they’ve got, and with Sancho coming in, it will give them a much better chance of getting closer and challenging for that title.”


Legend ignores Man Utd, names six teams that can win champions league



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.
