Mateo Kovacic

Manchester United are preparing a bid said to be about ₤27 million for Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic’ in January.

The Croatia international is being targeted as a player to help bolster the club’s midfield as they prepare to be without Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick in the future.

According to reports in Spain, United are looking into the possibility of a deal with the recently re-crown World Champions and they believe the fee of ₤27 million will be enough to convince the Madrid-based club.

The 23-year old has been unable to live up to expectations in the Bernabeu since signing from Inter Milan in 2015.

He has barely featured this season as he is constantly kept out the team by regulars Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

Despite his relative exile at Madrid, Kovacic still has attributes needed to be the perfect midfield player with his ability to keep the ball and passing range chief among them. With United failing so far to convince Marouane Fellaini to remain at the club and Michael Carrick getting ever closer to the end of his United career, the club is seemingly planning for their departures with this move for Kovacic.

Time will tell if a January move will be successful or if they might have to hold off until the summer.

Kai Havertz

Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Liverpool’s hope of signing 20-year-old midfielder Kai Havertz is now tied to the advice the youngster receives from Germany head coach Joachim Low.

The Germany international, who scored 20 goals for Bayer Leverkusen last season, has been linked with a move to the three European giants but he said he will seek for advice from his national team manager.

According to Havertz, he will speak to the 2014 World Cup winning manager during the ongoing international break concerning the incoming offers from United and Liverpool.

“I listen to many people but in the end it will be my decision. I will embrace any advice Low will give me because he has a lot experience – it wouldn’t be smart to not listen to him,” he said.

United are desperately in need of a regular goalscorer as Rashford and Anthony Martial are far from convincing, no thanks to the latter’s injury problems.

As for Liverpool, the Reds are in fine form having extended their winning streak to eight games against the Foxes before the break.

However, Klopp believes there is a need to add a midfielder to his team as Fabinho hasn’t lived up to his billing just yet.

Premier League giants Manchester United are almost certain to boost their squad when the transfer window reopens in two months time.

The Red Devils are in need of reinforcements especially in defense and midfield and West Ham United star Declan Rice could be one of the players signed in January.

According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester United want to sign Declan Rice and they might need to pay as much as 70 million pounds for him.

Declan Rice has already said that his future lies with West Ham United as he has a contract that does not expire until the summer of 2024 but his stance could change in no time.

Manchester United were one of several clubs interested in signing him during this summer’s transfer window but the England international player stayed with the Hammers for the start of the season.

Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini have not been adequately replaced since the midfielders left Manchester United earlier this year and the signing of Declan Rice would go a long way to rectify that problem.

Fellaini left Manchester United to join Chinese Super League (CSL) outfit Shandong Luneng during the winter transfer window in January, while Ander Herrera signed for PSG on a free transfer.

Donny Van Der Beek

Manchester United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer, who could be shown the exit door due to poor results, is far from convinced with what he has seen from Ajax youngster Donny Van de Beek so far this season.

The Dutchman was linked with a switch to the Old Trafford outfit in the summer but the Norwegian tactician turned down the chance to capture his services.

According to British media The Mirror, Solskjaer was pleased with the fact that Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay were available ahead of the season, hence, he kicked against splashing £35m on the midfielder.

Unfortunately, the decision seemed to have backfired judging by the team’s lack of creativity in the middle of the pitch.

Despite the current uninspiring form at Old Trafford, reports claimed that Solskjaer isn’t ready to change his mind and he won’t be competing with Real Madrid for the Ajax youngster when the winter transaction period commences in January.

Real Madrid are now tipped as the possible destination for the Dutchman who helped Ajax to a semifinal spot in last season’s Champions League competition.

The Los Blancos are told to offer an increased price of £100m by the Eredivisie side if they must lure the young midfielder to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
