Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has ruled his side out of a move for World Footballer of the Year, Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 5-time Ballon d’Or winner is reportedly unhappy at Real Madrid and is believed to be seeking a move away from the club.

His said displeasure stems from the club’s refusal to renew his current deal and earnings as he is not pleased with the fact both Lionel Messi and Neymar earn more than he does despite just claiming another Ballon d’or title.

The Spanish giants on their part believe the Portuguese Icon is on the decline as his tally of just 6 goals in La Liga this season shows and are keen on a squad overhaul with Ronaldo part of the players expected to be moved on.

His proposed destination has been reported to be between Man United and PSG but United boss, Mourinho, has now seemingly put an end to those reports.

“I am the last one to add some fuel to the fire,” Mourinho said on thursday.”Real Madrid is on fire. The results are not good. It is a club I worked at three years and care about the club. I am the last one to add to the fire. So [I’ll pour] water on the fire: Cristiano is the type of player everyone wants but only one can have. That is Real Madrid, that’s my feeling. – via GOAL.COM

His statements come after United signed Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, a player he feels will be a very ‘important player for the club.

Despite Ronaldo still being held in high esteem at the club he shot to stardom with, Mourinho is believed to feel he has a lot of quality young attackers at his disposal and signing the 32-year old will come at the detriment of at least one of these young stars.

PSG have now emerged as favourites for the Portugal International with Real also interested in signing their Brazilian superstar Neymar.

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.
