Manchester United Eye Move for f€48million rated Chelsea Target

Published

on

Arturo Vidal

Manchester United are reportedly ready to make a €48million offer for  Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal in the summer according to German media outlet BILD.

The report also suggests that the Red Devils are also willing to pay him a €14.4 million as his seasonal salary.

The Chilean was earlier targeted by Manchester United in 2014 during his time at Juventus but he turned down the chance to move to Old Trafford.

Though José Mourinho was able to sign Sanchez from Arsenal, the Portuguese manager is set to reignite the club’s interest in the highly-rated midfielder when the next transfer market commences.

According to BILD, Mourinho could face a stiff competition from Chelsea who are keen on upgrading their attacking threat by bringing the Chile international to Stamford Bridge ahead of Mourinho’s side.

It’s believed that Antonio Conte will exploit his intimate relationship with the player in convincing him to sign for the Blues instead of the Red Devils.

It should be recalled that  Conte and Vidal were at Juventus together before the Italian moved to Chelsea while the player switched to the Allianz Arena in the 2015-16 season.

Vidal’s contract with the Bundesliga giants expires in 2019 summer and he is making a decision not to renew it as he seems unhappy with Munich’s summer move for Leon Goretzka, who has reached an agreement with the club.

Unhappy Sarri shows interest in Phillipe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is unhappy with his men’s performance in their defeat to Arsenal last night.

The Blues failed to register a single shot on target in the first half of the game and that was unacceptable to Sarri who ‘blast’ his players after the game.

As a result of the Blues unimpressive display against the Gunners at Emirates Stadium, Sarri has reportedly turned his attention to Barcelona playmaker Phillipe Coutinho.

According to goal.com via The Express, the Italian has called on Abramovich to move for the Catalan’s want-away player.

The highly-regarded media outlet revealed that the Israeli millionaire is now ready to spend £100m on the Selecao playmaker before the end of the current transfer market.

The Brazilian international left Anfield for Camp Nou a year ago and he had a blistering start to life in the Spanish League.

He seamlessly settled down at Camp Nou as he assisted some goals and he also scored some beautiful and eye-catching goals.

However, the 26-year-old couldn’t maintain the tempo and he has fallen out of favour under Ernesto Valverde.

The Argentine manager preferred using Ousmane Dembele in his starting XI and the young Frenchman is doing great at the moment.

Dembele’s fine form means the Brazilian will continue to be a bit-part player at Camp and reports claimed he could be returning back to EPL this month.

Chelsea will have contend with Manchester United for his services. The Red Devils had earlier shown interest in Coutinho and they are doing everything to capture his signature in the January window.

Chelsea still remain in the fourth position despite their 2-0 defeat to the Gunners, however, the gap between both teams is now reduced to three points.

English Premier League outfit Chelsea are close to sealing a deal for German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey in coming days, according to reports from Germany.

The report claimed that the West London side have already made official contact for the star player while talks are expected to resume so as to have the deal finalized before the end of this January winter transfer window.

According to The Mirror, the Blues have held talks with Leon Bailey and an agreement seem to have been reached but the deal is currently being threatened by the interest from their English Premier League rivals Tottenham and Arsenal.

Leon Bailey’s representative has therefore confirmed that talks have been held between his client and Italian boss Maurizio Sarri who wishes to have his service at the Stamford Bridge.

The speculations of Leon Bailey’s exit from the German Bundesliga outfit came as a result of his lack of playing time at the club. He has only seen 8 games so far this season which is not enough for a growing player.

However, the outcome of the talks between both teams will determine the success of the deal as Leon Bailey will not wish to join the West London side and continue as a bench player.

mohamed salah

Former Manchester United boss has lamented his inability to have Egyptian international Mohamed Salah established under him when he was in charge at the Stamford Bridge.

The former United boss had signed Mohamed Salah to the Stamford Bridge but was unable to make good use of him before he left to the Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma and now at the Merseyside club Liverpool.

Last season was one of the best of Mohamed Salah’s football career as he helped the Reds team to reach the Champions League finals in addition to finishing second in the Premier League last season with his goals.

This season alone, Mohamed Salah has not changed as he has now scored a total of 17 goals and handed 8 assists in the 30 games under his belt which makes him one of the best the English League can boast of at the moment.

However, the former Chelsea boss confessed that he was unable to get the best from the player as he wished that Mohamed Salah had given this best under him at the Stamford Bridge.

With his feat and impressive performance, Mohamed Salah now has a release clause of about £150 million in his contract with the Reds which is expected to end in 2023.

danny drinkwater

There are suggestions that Chelsea out-of-favour midfielder Danny Drinkwater will be leaving the Stamford Bridge this winter transfer window on a loan move.

This is after the former Leicester City star got missing in the Jurgen Klopp’s team without playing time.

It was earlier suggested that the former Premier League champion will be leaving the West London side alongside Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas who is now with the French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco.

Danny Drinkwater who helped the Foxes win the English Premier League title in 2016 immediately joined the West London side only to become a bench player and he is reported to be keen on leaving the club to secure a playing time elsewhere.

Indications are that the Blues are not willing to part ways with the star player which is the reason why they may be forced to give him out on loan with a number of Premier League sides already indicating interest.

Fulham are reported to be in the lead for the recruitment of Danny Drinkwater on a loan deal as they hope to add more strength to their squad through to the end of the season.

In order to make the deal work through, Fulham are reportedly ready to send Timothy Fosu-Mensah back to his parent club Manchester United to create the space for Danny Drinkwater.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has given a hint on why his side suffered a humiliating 2-0 defeat in the hands of the North London outfit Arsenal on Saturday evening

The West London side were not only defeated but were outplayed by Arsenal which is the reason why the Italian boss lashes out on the players as he puts the blame on them.

It has been an inconsistent performance by the West London side since their defeat to Tottenham which ended their 18 games unbeaten run and that has to be corrected by the former Napoli manager.

However, he stated that he lost because some of the players in his team seem difficult to motivate as he noted that he had made efforts to do that after their defeat to the other North London side Tottenham but that has not worked yet with the defeat.

Meanwhile, the Blues boss is ready to take a part of the blame because his side failed to show up completely against the Gunners team.

However, the game between both sides have been reduced to three points which leave the race for a top-four finish very open and more competitive especially with United coming from behind.

Arsenal 2 : 0 Chelsea – Three talking points from the game

Published

arsenal

The Gunners returned to winning ways as they thrashed Chelsea 2-0 to the Emirates stadium in one of Saturday’s Premier League game.

The Blues had defeated Arsenal in Emery’s first game of the season, Maurizio Sarri’s side narrowly overcame the Gunners’ challenge 2-1 at Stamford Bridge last year.

However, yesterday’s game was totally different from the previous fixture in August 2018 as the North London club dominated the Blues for the most part of the game.

Emery’s men deservedly took the lead in the 14th minute when Lacazette powered a beautiful shot past Kepa Arrizabalaga who was busy all through the clash.

The home side doubled their lead after 25 minutes when Laurent Koscielny scored with his shoulder.

The Blues were made to chase the game before half time and they couldn’t find the back of the net throughout the mouthwatering and entertaining game.

Here are the top three talking points from the game.

There’s more to Ozil’s omission than Emery’s ‘tactical reason’

It has been long I saw Ozil play a full match. It’s either he was subbed out or he was subbed in by Emery.

In fact, it’s been a while he featured in Arsenal kit and Emery keeps providing ‘tactical reasons’ for the player’s regular omission.

In a game that’s as classic as Saturday’s fixture, every Arsenal fans would expect the German star to be in the starting lineup so as to create more chances with his creativity.

But the former Real Madrid playmaker was surprisingly left out of the starting XI which further suggested that there are off-field crises between the player and the Spanish tactician.
