Man United face a huge decision after £800k per-week salary demands presented by star

It really wasn’t that long ago when the idea of a player earning £100k per week was eye-watering stuff, but now it almost seems like a starting point for average players at top clubs.

Man United have struggled for years to get the best out of Paul Pogba, but there were a few weeks earlier in this season where he was fantastic and dragged them to victory.

Fitness has been an issue for him as he’s picked up a few injuries here and there, while he’s also the subject of constant speculation about his future so that can’t be helpful either.

Man United face a huge decision as his contract runs out in the summer of 2022, and a report from The Daily Star has highlighted how big the commitment will need to be.

They point to his contract as an issue for United as he could leave next summer … Read the rest

Arsenal will need to find alternatives this summer as main transfer target is listed as untouchable

Every club needs to have some alternative plans in the transfer market in case the initial ones fall through, and it’s now starting to look like Martin Odegaard will return to Real Madrid in the summer.

He’s been fantastic for Arsenal since making his loan move in January, but there’s no indication that there’s an option to buy included in there so his future is down to Real Madrid.

Marca have reported that the Norwegian star is seen as untouchable in the transfer market this summer and they do see a major role for him at the club, so there’s no chance that Arsenal can sign him.

They do point to the problem that is his poor relationship with Zidane and that’s the only thing that could force the player to demand an exit, but this also points to a change in the dugout too.

Phil Neville recalls LA Galaxy striker Javier Hernandez time with Manchester United

The Major League Soccer season is about to get underway, and a matchup between Inter Miami and LA Galaxy will see two Manchester United FC acquaintances meet in this fixture. 

Phil Neville, who now heads the Inter Miami club as manager, spent the 2013-14 season as an assistant coach on the Manchester United bench. One of the players on the squad was current LA Galaxy striker Javier Hernández.

Neville spoke to the media where Diario AS relayed his comments about the former Manchester United striker.

Atlético Madrid striker weighs Liverpool and Inter Miami proposals

Luis Suárez is under contract until 2022 with Atlético Madrid; however, the 34-year-old’s future could lie elsewhere. 

This season, Suárez has found the fountain of youth as he’s scored 19 goals in 32 appearances for the Spanish side. Nonetheless, there’s the potential that the striker could be one and done with Los Colchoneros.

According to Deportes Cuatro (via Diario AS), Suárez is weighing two proposals, one from his former club Liverpool FC and Inter Miami. On various occasions, David Beckham has tried to sign the Uruguay international but failed.

Manchester United lead race for Aston Villa star with significant budget set aside by Red Devils as Villains expect ‘monster’ bid

According to Football Insider, Manchester United lead the clubs interested in Aston Villa star Emiliano Martinez, with a Villains source admitting the club are expecting a ‘monster’ summer offer for the ace.

This comes after Football Insider reported that the Argentine graduate of rivals Arsenal tops the Red Devils’ goalkeeper shopping list.

The 28-year-old has been solid between the sticks after taking the difficult but right decision to leave Arsenal after a decade at the club for an initial fee of £17m in a deal rising to a potential £20m.

Football Insider add that United have been keeping a close eye on the man bound to win a senior cap for Argentina when international football for South American nations returns.

It’s claimed that United plan to recruit two senior goalkeepers in the summer transfer window, they intend to keep academy graduate Dean Henderson but move on David de Gea and … Read the rest

Liverpool star’s Barcelona ambitions set to backfire as PSG ready themselves for bid

After a woeful 2020/21 season, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see one or two Liverpool players want to move on, although that’s hardly the sort of loyalty that Jurgen Klopp and the Reds fans want to see.

The German has surely built up enough credit in the role for this season to be written off as an atypical campaign, given the horrendous injury list that no team would’ve coped with, as well as the various Covid-19 protocols to deal with.

That doesn’t appear to matter in Mo Salah’s case.

According to Don Balon, the Liverpool striker is desperate to leave the Anfield-based outfit this summer, but has ruled out a switch to Real Madrid because he wants to be the player that replaces Lionel Messi at Barcelona, either in the short or longer term.

Video: West Ham hero Marlon Harewood can barely watch nervy closing stages of victory over Leicester

West Ham United cult hero Marlon Harewood went through a rollercoaster of emotions while watching the Hammers’ victory over Leicester City on Sunday afternoon.

David Moyes’ men, who have been one of the surprise packages of the Premier League season to date, stormed three goals ahead against fellow top four competitors Leicester City, which would ordinarily be nothing short of confirmation of their victory.

West Ham fans across London will have been breathing a sigh of relief when the full-time whistle finally blew against Leicester City on Sunday, but no sigh … Read the rest

Arsenal hope to sign rejuvenated Man United star in shock £30m transfer this summer

The days have long gone where Man United and Arsenal wouldn’t trade with each other, so it’s not a big shock anymore when players move between the clubs.

What might be a shock is if Jesse Lingard was to make the move this summer, mainly because he was completely out of favour just a few months ago.

Mikel Arteta has seen success by signing younger players with potential whereas Arsenal have been weighed down by giving big contracts to players from rival teams in the past, but Lingard has been sensational during his loan spell with West Ham.

The Daily Star have reported that West Ham do want to sign him permanently, but Arsenal are also showing an interest and he could be sold for as much as £30m in the summer.

Boost for Man United in hunt for a new striker as agent tries to force Euro giants to let star go

It’s clear that every huge club in Europe is fixated with the idea of Erling Haaland, but the reality is that most of them will need to look elsewhere when it comes to finding a new striker.

There were some rumours last week that Man United could go turn to another PSG striker in Mauro Icardi to solve their issue through the centre of the attack, and it does look like an interesting one.

He’s a deadly finisher and he’s got plenty of experience at the highest level, but there’s always a fear that he and his wife Wanda will cause problems behind the scenes.

Real concern for Arsenal after Mikel Arteta offers update on Martin Odegaard injury following Slavia Prague draw

Mikel Arteta has shared that the current indications point to Martin Odegaard missing the ‘next game or two’ for Arsenal through injury, in a worrying update after the side’s poor display against Slavia Prague.

Mark Mann-Bryans of the Press Association’s Sports branch sought an update on the impressive Real Madrid loanee after the Gunners’ 1-1 draw in the first-leg of their Europa League tie this evening.

Odegaard has been superb for the Gunners since arriving on loan in the January transfer window, becoming the side player the club have borrowed from Los Blancos, after Dani Ceballos.

The Norwegian playmaker has made 13 appearances for the Gunners across the Premier League and Europa League, scoring twice and offering a consistent creative threat for the North London outfit.

Odegaard was out of tonight’s clash and Arteta has admitted that it looks like the 22-year-old will be out for the ‘next game or … Read the rest
