Manchester United underwhelming goalkeeper should be ready for an intense competition for a place in United’s goalkeeping department in the upcoming season.

The Spanish netminder was poor between the sticks for his country throughout their stay in Russia and that has limited his chances of getting the nod ahead Sergio Romero to man the goalpost for the Red Devils in the coming season.

However, apart from his uninspiring performances recently, De Gea now face another competitor as the Red Devils finally confirmed the signing of Stoke City’s experience goaltender Lee Grant last night.

The Red Devils have been in talks with the 35-year-old’s agent over a possible switch to Old Trafford since last week.

According to the Red Devils via their official website, Lee Grant has signed a two-year contract with the club and he could be integrated into the club’s managerial position as goalkeeper trainer by the end of his deal.

With the netminder’s signature, United have made three signings this summer having signed Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk and Diogo Dalot from Porto.

Though Lee Grant is widely considered as a third-choice goalie at the Theater of Dreams, he could be asked to replace David De Gea, should the Spaniard continue with is lacklustre display in the coming season.

Lee Grant has featured in more than 500 games in his career and he would be hoping to add to that tally at Old Trafford.

Daniel Sturridge

Emerging reports claim that Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge is still keen on leaving the Anfield this January winter transfer window as he awaits the right offers.

The report claims that Daniel Sturridge expects to move to the US topflight league MLS, having held talks with some teams in the league.

The 29-year-old is currently in his last six months as a Liverpool player according to his contract which makes him free to speak to suitors in this January window.

Liverpool are yet to have any discussion with the star player over a new deal which signals that he is on his way out.

More so, the fact that he has not been handed playing time as he has failed to break into the team hints that he is not in the plans of manager Jurgen Klopp.

Last season, Daniel Sturridge got offers from China but refused to leave as he was bent on fighting for a shirt at the Anfield which has failed to yield any result.

However, the Reds are expected to listen to offers for the player and hand him is wish to leave or risk losing him for free when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Timo Werner

Liverpool have reached the end of the road in their pursuit of RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner as he is already being offered a whopping deal of £100,000-a-week by his German side, according to Bild

This, therefore, means that the Reds will no longer be able to land the star player as he will not be available anymore excepts if he rejects the offer from his German side.

Suggestions are that the development is more of a blow to Tottenham than the Reds knowing that the North London outfit are also keen on the player and they have got no enough option at the attack.

Tottenham have lost Harry Kane to injury which would have been the best opportunity to land Timo Werner so he could serve as a cover for the injured England international.

Timo Werner has been impressive this season to continue his fine goalscoring form of last season. He scored a total of 42 goals in his first two seasons which makes the club keen on keeping him.

However, the reaction of the German international o the £100,000 offer handed to him would be made known in coming days as he is yet to confirm the offer.

Gonzalo Higuain

English Premier League outfit Chelsea are the only big side that have completed a deal in this winter transfer window and they are yet to add more before the end of the month.

The Blues are lacking a cutting edge in their attack and they wish to have a solution in order to record a successful second half of the season.

The likes of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud are not in good goalscoring form which makes it necessary for the West London side to make moves for new additions.

However, Chelsea have been linked with Argentina international and AC Milan star Gonzalo Higuain and Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson with the hope of having their signature in this winter window.

Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett has therefore given the hint that the West London side will not be bringing both strikers to the club but will rather move in for one.

According to give, the Argentina international remains the first option for manager Maurizio Sarri but a move will be made for the Premier League striker should the deal for Higuain fails to work through.

Meanwhile, the Italian Serie A side are keen to stop the player from leaving the club this winter window.

Hirving Lozano

It has been revealed that English Premier League side Chelsea might no longer move in for PSV winger Hirving Lozano in this winter window.

This has been traced to the fact that the West London side sealed a move for German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic some days back.

The Blues were the first to announce a major deal among other big Premier League sides for Christian Pulisic and immediately loaned him back until the end of the season.

However, the West London side were interested in the signature of Hirving Lozano but there are suggestions he would no longer move that direction because of the number of wingers already on ground at the Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Italian Serie A outfits Napoli and Inter Milan are all reported to be keen on the signature of the star player and with the latest development from the Premier League side, they will now stand a better chance on landing Hirving Lozano.

The winger is believed to be interested in a move away from PSV and reports claim that he will jump at any luring deal that would be placed on the table for him.

Chelsea are now interested in the signature of attackers that will replace Alvaro Morata, who is not in good goalscoring form.

Marouane Fellaini

Three teams are reportedly interested in a transfer for Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

According to the report from the Daily Mirror, the three teams are keen on a £15m raid on Manchester United for the Belgian international star.

Portuguese champions FC Porto, seven-time European champions AC Milan and Chinese Super League outfit Guangzhou Evergrande are all in a battle to sign the Red Devils player.

Manchester United are open to the idea of selling Marouane Fellaini who has been reduced to a peripheral figure at the club since ex-Red Devils striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge of the team.

Norwegian tactician Solskjaer was appointed the interim manager of Manchester United in December after the last permanent manager, Jose Mourinho, lost his job in the wake of a disastrous start to this season.

Fellaini has played just once since the aforementioned Solskjaer became the Manchester United manager.

His sole appearance came earlier this month in the FA Cup third round clash against English Championship side Reading at Old Trafford.

The 31-year-old came on as a second-half substitute in that cup game against the Royals.

He was previously a regular starter while Jose Mourinho was still the manager at Old Trafford.

Arsenal have been boosted with the news that they can get one of their transfer targets for £3m.

Colombian international playmaker James Rodriguez has been linked with Arsenal after falling out with Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac at the Allianz Arena.

The 27-year-old is on a two-year loan deal at Bayern Munich from European champions Real Madrid at the moment.

He joined the Bavarian giants at the start of last season and was a regular fixture in the Bayern team that retained their Bundesliga crown at the end of last season under the guidance of veteran manager Jupp Heynckes.

He has had to endure contrasting fortunes this season in comparison to the last campaign.

James Rodriguez is certainly not a favorite of Niko Kovac as the Colombian has struggled to make the same impact from last season under him.

Bayern are willing to let him leave in the current transfer window with six months left on his loan contract with the club.

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal can get him for just £3m which is for the remaining period before his loan spell expires.

Bayern Munich were said to have paid £11.5m for the two-year loan with the option to make his transfer permanent for £39.5m.
