Transfer: Another Paul Pogba latest emerge

Published

on

There is a development on the future of Man United midfielder Paul Pogba as he is reportedly ready to allow his contract to run down and make a decision on his future next summer.

The former Juventus star is in the final year of his contract and will be free to talk to foreign clubs in January ahead of a free transfer next summer. It is understood that he will not mind leaving Man United despite the stand of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

There are already talks over a fresh deal but there seems to be no development on the matter as the club is busy with the signing of new players and making efforts to do away with fringe ones.

While the France international is yet returned to United’s pre-season training and remains on holiday as he was one of many of the club’s players to feature at Euro 2020 there are already speculations over his future.

There is no doubt that the Red Devils will not want to lose Pogba for free given that he was signed for around £85m five years ago. This means he could be allowed to leave the club this season if they are unable to convince him.

However, ESPN report that Pogba will decide his next move in the summer of 2022 after seeing out the remainder of his contract with the club.

His former club Juventus, from whom United signed him in 2016, are desperate to land the midfielder while French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain are also interested in the service of the World Cup winner.

There were claims that Juventus are willing for a swap deal including Juve forward Cristiano Ronaldo, which would seal a sensational return to United for the latter.

Ronaldo’s future at the Serie A club was uncertain after a disappointing campaign but he seems to be willing to stay with the Old Lady.

Manchester United are in the mix to sign Ruben Neves from Wolves in this summer’s transfer window.

It has been claimed that Man United’s interest in Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves is ‘genuine’ but they are in the mix to sign the star player.

No doubt, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to have a more attacking side next season and Ruben Neves has been identified to help this course with the deal expected to please Bruno Fernandes.

Eurosport’s Dean Jones, speaking on The Football Terrace podcast, has claimed United’s interest in the Wolves star is ‘genuine’.

He added that Fernandes wants his compatriot to move to Old Trafford as the club set out to win the Premier League title next season.

“That final position will be in midfield,” he said.

“It’s just a case of is it, Ruben Neves? Is it a defensive midfielder? It’s all going to depend and it would really give us an insight into what Solskjaer’s mentality is going into the season and what type of football we can expect from him.

“Is he sticking with that McTominay and Fred? Or is he going to be more open than that, with a ball-player like Neves that can come in.

“I’m told that the Neves pursuit is genuine. And while Arsenal are the most active in trying to get that over the line, United are still in the conversation

“Bruno Fernandes is obviously very keen for Neves to join and the club are aware of that.”

Meanwhile, Solskjaer was asked about transfer business after his side beat Derby 2-1 in their pre-season friendly on Sunday. He hinted that the club is still keen on doing some business before the end of the window.

Solskajer also said Sancho’s move would soon be confirmed, saying: “From what I understand only paperwork, small little details, hopefully, we can announce something.

“Let’s get all the paperwork done and get him over the line and then I can say what I truly feel about the player.”

Ray Parlour hints at what will happen toMan United if they sign these two players

Published

Arsenal legend, Ray Parlour has predicted that Manchester United will be in a stronger position to challenge for the Premier League title if they land Raphael Varane and Kieran Trippier.

The Red Devils reached the final of the Europa League but failed to win it as they also missed out of the Premier League title with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side conceding a number of avoidable goals last season.

The club has already made a statement to come out stronger by agreeing on a deal with Borussia Dortmund for Jadon Sancho and they are in line to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid.

The Real Madrid and France defender will cost £50million, taking the club’s summer spending to over £100million. Kieran Trippier is also being linked and could join the club.

According to former Arsenal man Parlour, all three deals will move United closer to a title charge.

“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,” the pundit told talkSPORT.

“Trippier, we know what he can do. Whether they can play three at the back at times, [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka obviously is the main man, [Trippier] can play left-back as well, so he’s very good cover and he’s a great pro as well.

“That’s what [Man United] have got to do, they’ve got to compete and try to get closer to Man City, who everyone is chasing,” he added.

“Liverpool are the same, they’ll be trying to make signings as well. You can’t stand still in the Premier League.

“I think that 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.”

Andy Cole gives nod for Raphael Varane transfer to Man United

Manchester United legend Andy Cole has given his nod to the Red Devils’ pursuit of Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane this summer.

Andy Cole, who gave his backing to Manchester United to sign Raphael Varane in the summer, described the France international potentially a “fantastic signing” for the Red Devils.

The summer transfer window is now about a move for Raphael Varane to Man United after the Premier League heavyweights moved quickly to land Jadon Sancho this time around.

Manchester United legend said, “If that happens, I think it’s going to be a big, big positive. He’s still very young for a centre-half and has played at the highest level for many many years now.

“He’s won numerous championships and Champions Leagues with Real Madrid, World Cup winner. So he obviously has the qualities to bring Manchester United forward, so if it happens I think it would be a fantastic signing.”

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are the frontrunners to sign Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane this summer, according to Spanish football journalist Euan McTear.

After playing for France at the Euros, Varane will now turn his attention back to club football and where he will be playing this season coming, with McTear telling TT: “At this point, Manchester United seem like the frontrunners”.

He added: “They’re are one of the clubs that do have a space there, next to Maguire there is a question mark, some of the other clubs have their two settled centre-backs so Manchester United makes a bit of sense”.

Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid have lost their legendary defender Sergio Ramos who has now joined French Ligue 1 outfit PSG after leaving the club on a free transfer for failing to agree on a new deal.

However, they do not mind losing Raphael Varane to United as long as the right fee is brought forward.
