It was rumored here yesterday that Liverpool have made big-money move for Real Madrid youngster Marco Asensio.

The Reds shocked most of their fans as they were reported to have tabled a €180m offer to the Los Blancos so as to get the highly-rated striker this summer.

However, there is another surprising report emanating from Santiago Bernabeu via Mundo Deportivo, who are reporting that the La Liga giants are unwilling to release him for such amount.

According to the Spanish media outlet, Real Madrid are not ready to partway with the lively striker this summer despite being a fringe member of the team throughout last season.

The Galaticos hierarchy claimed that the youngster would get regular action in the upcoming season due to the change of manager by the club’s board of Directors in the early part of the month.

The youngster was awesome in his first season at Real Madrid in 2016, scoring important and beautiful goals to help the team to two trophies – La Liga and the Champions League.

Though he wasn’t given much chance to feature on the field of play, the 22-year-old Spaniard striker managed to score 11 goals in all competitions during last season.

His pace and his ability to score long-range goals, the Reds are still hoping they could convince Florentino Perez to sanction his switch to the Anfield Stadium in days time.

Jadon Sancho

Everything looks alright at Man United because of the fine form of the team and the smiles that have been put on the faces of the fans, but there could still be one thing to disagree about.

The summer window transfer market is something every club and their fans anticipate as the target is to recruit more additions to help strengthen the team.

For Man United, the focus has been Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on the player.

The Norwegian manager has not spoken much on the need for defenders, as a matter of fact, he dismissed talks of that topic when he stated that he has got a number of them at the club, and this is where the problem lies.

Man United fans seem uncomfortable with the stance of the former Red Devils player. They could start throwing stones.

Commentators opine that there is a high need of defenders to help balance the team and give depth because of the shaky performance of the legs available at the Old Trafford.

This could cause fracas between Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the fans in the coming season especially if he insists, and the defensive department does not get better in any way.

The Red Devils have been linked to Nathan Ake but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has moved to dismiss the speculations.

Who Chelsea fans should hold responsible for defeat

Frank Lampard

Chelsea suffered a 3-0 defeat to Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday and that has got everyone talking.

The chance of getting into the top four positions is now slim because they could be reduced to the fifth position if Leicester City and Manchester United beat Bournemouth and Aston Villa respectively.

In his analysis, former Arsenal player Ian Wright noted that Blues’ defender Andreas Christensen was bullied by Sheffield United attackers and could not hold on.

More so, he claims that manager Frank Lampard should be held responsible for the defeat because he was naive, especially for trying to play in a shape like Man United.

According to the Gunners legend, Chelsea players were unable to have their stance on the pitch as their midfielders and defenders were overpowered.

While admitting that Frank Lampard will be disappointed, Wright stated that they lacked intensity and pace to keep down the pressure from their opponents.

It is now obvious that fans will have to wait until the end of the season to know who joins Liverpool and Man City for the Champions League ticket.

The contest is between Man United, Chelsea and Leicester City with the Red Devils looking real for the challenge.

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard is on the wanted list of Championship side Bristol for a managerial role ahead of the coming season.

The Championship side parted ways with their former manager Lee Johnson since last weekend and are considering a number of options to help the team especially after an inconsistent season.

The Express reports that amongst the list already compiled, the Robins are more interested in the choice of the former Liverpool midfielder.

It is believed that his presence at the club will help motivate the players and serve as an inspiration for them to do more, owing to his history and achievements in the game.

Steven Gerrard is still the manager at Scottish club Rangers and it is unknown if he will be willing to dump them to return to England.

Suggestions are that the Reds legend will be dreaming of managing an EPL side in the nearest future and this opportunity could be the starting point as he looks to emulate the likes of Frank Lampard, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mikel Arteta of Chelsea, Man United and Arsenal respectively.

All these managers are of the same age grade and played together as either teammates or opponents in their active career.

Ray Palour is the latest to claim that the former Lyon striker should be sacrificed and shown the exit door for the club to fund other transfers.

The Arsenal legend is more particular about the club bringing in a replacement for Aaron Ramsey who left the Emirates Stadium to pitch tent with Italian Serie A giants, Juventus.

According to him, Mikel Arteta must secure the service of a goal scoring midfielder to make his team more threatening and stand the chances of winning more games.

Aaron Ramsey gave Arsenal that ability and quality before his exit from the club. He scored a number of goals that gave the team some points.

The burden has been on Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to deliver goals since Ramsey left and that ought not to be, according to Ray Palour when he spoke to Talk Sports.

Meanwhile, Aaron Ramsey has not been having it all good with the Serie A giants. He has not delivered same quality he is known for and already being reported to return back to England with Chelsea showing interest.

However, Man United fans have reasons to be happy as they might have gotten a new Bruno Fernandes in the club with like-performance and quality.

Hannibal Mejbri is the young 17-year-old that has been tipped to step into the shoes of Bruno Fernandes in no time. He joined the Red Devils academy from French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco just 12 months ago and has attracted a lot of attention with his performances.

The analysis rates him as the sixth on the ranking of midfielders at the Old Trafford, starting from the senior team which makes him closer to working with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

NGolo Kante

Emerging reports claim that France international N’Golo Kante is a surprise name on the list of expected exits as he might be sold by the West London outfit Chelsea in this summer transfer window.

The reports claim that the World Cup winner could be sold to accommodate Kai Havertz from German Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen ahead of the summer transfer window.

The asking price for Kai Havertz is around the region of £90 million and that looks too high for the Blues and they are imploring all options to make a deal happen, the reason why they could cash in on the former Leicester City midfielder to sanction a deal.

N’Golo Kante has not been a regular under the manager Frank Lampard reigns and his current fate at the club started with the reigns of former manager Maurizio Sarri who brought in Jorginho from Napoli to take up the midfield role.

Chelsea have already spend heavily to bring in Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech ahead of the coming season with expectations that Kai Havertz will help to balance the team.

This, therefore, means that N’Golo Kante could be shown the way out with Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid reported to be interested in his signature.

English Premier League club Arsenal will face a major challenge to keep Dani Ceballos at the Emirates Stadium for a permanent deal.

The Spanish international has been with the North London outfit for the past 12 months on loan and with the contract set to run out at the end of the season, manager Mikel Arteta seeks to work with him on a permanent basis, having fallen in love with the player’s quality.

Before now, Dani Ceballos barely get a role in the team because of his injuries but he seems to be forming a major part of the team, especially now that German international Mesut Ozil has not been in the team since the restart of the EPL.

However, Arsenal will face a major challenge from Spanish La Liga club Real Betis as they are reported to be in contact with Ceballos for a return to the club, knowing that he started his football career with the outfit.

It is unlikely that Real Madrid will be in need of Dani Ceballos anymore, reasons why he is readily available but will be making a choice for the club with the brightest prospect and opportunity to play regularly.

One of Liverpool’s targets in this coming summer transfer window is midfield star Thiago Alcantara from the German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

Thiago Alcantara is also happy with the prospect of joining the current English Premier League champions but that will not happen if manager Jurgen Klopp does not clear his midfield to create space for the 29-year-old.

It is reported that funds are not readily available to the German boss to make some deals; hence, he will have to make some sales to be able to cash in on the player.

However, commentators argue that manager Jurgen Klopp is unwilling to part ways with his midfield options, Naby Keita and Curtis Jones which stops the opportunity for Thiago Alcantara to join the club.

Meanwhile, this might be good news for Italian giants Juventus and English Premier League club Man City as they are also keen on the player.

It is now unclear if Thiago Alcantara will seek a move to any rather Juventus or Man City as he already has his heart at Anfield but that will depend on future developments.

The development on Thiago Alcantara could just end his dream move to Liverpool with the club hierarchy only hoping to snap up their defensive targets to help strengthen the squad for a new challenge next season.
