Gareth Southgate fires England warning to Manchester United duo

England manager Gareth Southgate has fired a warning to Manchester United duo Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford by stating that they’re not currently in his plans.

This isn’t ideal for the Man Utd pair ahead of the World Cup later this year, but it’s fair to say that neither player has really done enough for club or country for some time now.

Sancho looked an exciting talent during his Borussia Dortmund days, and that’s when he first made the breakthrough for England.

Since his big move to United last summer, however, the 22-year-old has gone downhill, and he’ll need to improve quickly if he is to have a realistic chance of getting in ahead of so much competition in England’s attacking midfield department.

Ex-Premier League attacker urges Gabriel Jesus to snub Arsenal in favour of rival club

Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore has advised Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus to snub a potential move to Arsenal in favour of a switch to Chelsea.

The Brazilian striker is expected to leave the Etihad this summer. Not only does the South American have just 12-months left on his contract, but following the Citizens’ decision to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, Jesus is unlikely to ever be Pep Guardiola’s main man.

Despite being heavily linked with a move to Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, the 25-year-old is also rumoured to be wanted by fellow London duo Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur (Telegraph).

Man United have Frenkie De Jong’s favourite shirt number available

Manchester United are in talks to sign Barcelona midfielder Frenkie De Jong.

According to a recent report from leading transfer expert and CaughtOffside columnist Fabrizio Romano the Red Devils are looking to make the Netherlands international Erik Ten Hag’s first major signing.

Although there is still a lot of work to do before Ten Hag can be reunited with De Jong, the Premier League giant’s pursuit could be boosted by the midfielder’s favourite number being available.

Speaking to Voetbal International back in 2019, as quoted by Evening Standard, De Jong said: … Read the rest

Man United and Chelsea handed boost as West Ham drop major Declan Rice transfer hint

West Ham United may not want to appear willing to sell midfielder Declan Rice by declaring the England international is valued at as much as £150m, but according to recent reports, the Hammers could be prepared to enter talks if a much lower bid is made.

That’s according to a recent report from Football London, who claims the highly-rated defensive midfielder was not included in the Londoners’ recent 2022-23 kit promotion – prompting suggestions the Hammers are concerned a club could up their efforts to sign the 23-year-old this summer.

Heavily linked with a host of top clubs, including both Chelsea and Manchester United (Todo Fichajes), when asked for his thoughts on the possibility of losing Rice to a domestic rival, manager David Moyes has remained adamant that it would take a British transfer record fee to lure the midfielder away from the capital.

Manchester United rival Arsenal for Champions League winner who could be cleared for transfer

Manchester United are reportedly interested in a potential transfer move for Real Madrid attacking midfielder Marco Asensio this summer.

The Spain international hasn’t been as much of a regular for Madrid in recent times, with various problems with fitness and form derailing his career in the last few years.

Still, Asensio remains a highly regarded talent, it would seem, with journalist Ekrem Konur claiming Man Utd are keen on the player, who has also recently been linked with other big names like Arsenal and AC Milan by Calciomercato.

See below as Konur now tweets about United’s interest, quote-tweeting a previous claim that Real could listen to offers for the 26-year-old…

€35m star convinced he’s Premier League-bound as Man Utd & Chelsea pursue transfer

PSV midfielder Ibrahim Sangare is reportedly expecting a transfer to the Premier League this summer, and could have plenty of offers.

Manchester United and Chelsea are interested in Sangare, according to Sky Sports, while they also note that there has been talk of interest from Newcastle and Liverpool in the Dutch media.

Sangare has impressed in the Eredivisie and will surely be a player that new Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag knows well from his time in charge of Ajax.

New midfield signings look essential for the Red Devils this summer, and Sangare could be an ideal candidate in that defensive role, replacing departing veteran Nemanja Matic and providing an upgrade on unconvincing duo Scott McTominay and Fred.

Ibrahim Sangare to Man Utd or Chelsea?

Arsenal focusing on Gabriel Jesus transfer as two other targets looked too complicated

Arsenal are reportedly now making Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus their top transfer target due to issues with two other players they’d been looking at.

According to Todo Fichajes, Real Madrid misfit Luka Jovic and loaned-out Atletico Madrid ace Alvaro Morata were also considered by the Gunners, only for Jesus to become the priority as moves for those players looked too complicated.

In truth, most Arsenal fans will probably be happy with this development, as Jesus arguably looks the superior talent, with Jovic in particular going through a difficult few years despite looking a huge prospect before his big move to the Bernabeu.

Morata, meanwhile, has shown some promise with Atletico and with loan club Juventus, but previously struggled in a spell in the Premier League with Chelsea.

Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal?

(Video) Ex-striker urges Liverpool to sign ‘absolutely sensational’ midfielder

Former Liverpool attacker Stan Collymore has urged his old club to sign Borussia Dortmund and England midfielder Jude Bellingham.

Bellingham, 18, has enjoyed a monumental rise in recent seasons.

Following a £22.5m move from Championship side Birmingham to Dortmund back in 2020, Bellingham has not only forced his way into the Black and Yellows’ senior first team, but the teenager is also now a fully-fledged England international.

Spurs attacker admits he wants to leave club this summer

Tottenham Hotspur winger Steven Bergwijn has recently revealed he wants to leave the Lilywhites this summer.

Despite still having three years left on his deal, the Dutch winger, by his own admission, is already eyeing Spurs’ exit door.

Speaking in a recent interview with AD, the 24-year-old said: “It would be nice if there was clarity soon. I just have to go play. But I want to leave Spurs now, that’s for sure.

“Whether it is important that my new club plays in the Champions League? That’s not even top priority. Though it would be nice. What’s important is that I’m going to play.”

Although it isn’t all that common to hear a player come out and admit to wanting to leave the club they’re currently signed to, in Bergwijn’s case, it is hard not to appreciate where he is coming from.

Antonio Rudiger poses for picture with Real Madrid shirt after completing transfer

Antonio Rudiger has already posed for pictures with his new Real Madrid shirt.

The centre-back has agreed to join Los Blancos on a free transfer from Chelsea ahead of his Stamford Bridge deal expiring.

Rudiger will officially leave Chelsea at the end of June, and he will then join up with Real Madrid for pre-season.

The Blues were keen to keep hold of the German, who has been a key part of Thomas Tuchel’s back-line.

But unable to offer new contracts for weeks during their ownership issues, Real Madrid took full advantage.

Rudiger has penned … Read the rest
