While they have been criticized for their inability to find buyers for players they are no longer in need of, English Premier League giants Manchester United have made it clear that they can still sell some of their unneeded players as long as the right offer comes in for them. The Red Devils have completed the sale of attacker Daniel James to their Premier League rivals Leeds United even though the negotiations between the two clubs started just a few hours before on Tuesday, the summer transfer window deadline day. James was already surplus to requirements at Old Trafford and the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo would have seen his chances of playing in the team more restricted than normal.
Manchester United announced that they had agreed a deal in principle for the signing of Ronaldo from Juventus and it was indeed a huge piece of news, especially to United fans, as they have now had their hopes of seeing their club fighting for major titles go over the ceiling. James had always made headlines particularly because of his lack of playing time and there were reports that he could be allowed to leave the club and join another side on loan for the rest of the current campaign.
Manchester City are continuing to grow in confidence that they can get a deal over the line for Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish after already opening transfer negotiations for the England international midfielder some days ago. City manager Pep Guardiola has already made it clear to the club’s hierarchy that he would love to have the Aston Villa captain in his team and they have been working on the deal to try and complete it as quickly as possible. Grealish is said to be keen on a move to the Etihad Stadium this summer and it has continued to look like the 25-year-old will finally make his dream switch to the Premier League champions as it continues to look like a matter of when and not if it will happen.
Grealish is one of the most sought-after players in the Premier League and has been chased by Manchester United in recent times as well but the Red Devils decided not to sign him because of the huge transfer fee that has been slapped on his head. Villa have said that for any deal to happen, they first want to negotiate with a club that will be willing to pay his £100 million transfer fee and as things are going currently, City are looking like they will pay up the cash and seal the transfer.

English Premier League side Chelsea and French Ligue 1 heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain have both continued their tug of war as they both continue their chase for Inter Milan defender Achraf Hakimi. The two clubs are the only two sides battling for the defender’s signature and while it has been an interesting race so far, it still appears that there is no winner in the deal yet.
Hakimi is currently a hot cake and is regarded as one of the best players available for a summer transfer, which explains why both PSG and Chelsea have declared that they are not ready or willing to let their guards down anytime soon. After the remarkable season he had the last term it is no surprise that he will be a great addition to any team he joins this summer and with the window already open for business, it is only normal for interested parties to start submitting bids to Inter Milan to acquire the player’s services – exactly what the two clubs have been doing.

English Premier League giants Manchester United have shown that they are very much interested in signing Atlético Madrid defender Kieran Trippier in this summer’s transfer window. The Red Devils are in the market for a new right-back who will serve as a major challenger for the position with Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Wan-Bissaka is currently the club’s best option for the right-back role and Olé Gunnar Solksjær believes that in order for the team to continue their quest in challenging the league’s top teams, they have to bolster the squad.
The Norwegian manager is interested in having serious competition for places in his squad and has made it clear that he wants to have at least two very good players for one position. Solksjær has admitted on several occasions that he usually has a selection headache whenever he wants to choose who will start in goal for the club between David De Gea and Dean Henderson. He says he loves that kind of competition as it is very healthy and proves that the squad is filled with quality. Continue reading “MANCHESTER UNITED’S TRIPPIER CHASE TAKES NEW TWIST”→
Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has continued to eye several targets he wants to sign for the club and his search has taken him to a direct rival club, Tottenham Hotspur. According to several reports from multiple sources, the Italian manager is interested in signing Gareth Bale from Spurs this summer, amid reports that the Wales international winger may not be making his switch to Tottenham permanent.
Bale joined Spurs from Real Madrid last summer on a season-long loan with an option to buy, but it continues to look highly unlikely that the London club will exercise the purchase option at the end of the season. Mourinho was the manager who engineered the winger’s transfer to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in the summer as he looked to add some more firepower to an attack that already had Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son in it.

Dean Smith and his Aston Villa side will be waiting for the arrival of Southampton at the Villa Park and will be doing so in eagerness as they hope to clinch victory in their most recent fixture against the Saints. Aston Villa will also be looking to do well enough to avoid defeat against a side with whom they are fighting for European places.
Young Aston Villa goalkeeper AkosOnodi has been earning rave reviews on the back of his excellent performance in goal during the FA Cup clash with Liverpool on Friday night. Aston Villa were hamstrung as they had to field youth players for their FA Cup third round tie with Liverpool after Coronavirus broke out amongst the first team squad members. AkosOnodi was one of the young Villa players who took his opportunity to shine very well.
He conceded four goals in a 4-1 defeat suffered by Aston Villa at the hands of the Reds but it could have been more if not for his heroics if not for the 19-year-old shot stopper. Liverpool scored the opening goal as early as the fourth minute before the youthful Aston Villa side stunned the Premier League champions with the equaliserfive minutes from the half-time break. Liverpool then scored three goals in five second half minutes through GeorginioWijnaldum, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah to win the game comprehensively and progress into the fourth round.

Due to the failure to arrive at an agreement with French club Lyon for the transfer of the player last summer, the Gunners opted to go for a more feasible option in Thomas Partey.
