Kylian Mbappe

Manchester United were linked with numerous young and established players during the transfer window but could only complete three signings before the window shut down.

Robert Lewandowski, Willian, Leon Goretzka were some of the top players linked with a move to the Theater of Dreams but none of them was captured by Ed Woodward.

Meanwhile, latest reports emanating from the former Premier League Champions claimed that Mourinho’s stunning offer for PSG youngster Kylian Mbappe was rejected by the Ligue 1 Champions.

The 19-year-old was a thorn in the flesh of many defenders during at the FIFA 2018 world cup in Russia as he creates and scores goals to help his country – France – to the world cup glory.

His displays for the Les Blues throughout the competition prompted Mourinho to make an offer for his signature but his bid was declined by Thomas Tuchel, who wants to build his team round the youngster.

According to the Mirror, Woodward travelled to the Parc des Princes stadium to discuss with PSG hierarchy over the possibility of getting the youngster but all his efforts to convince them were fruitless.

Despite joining PSG from Monaco in just a season, Mbappe’s future remains unclear as Real Madrid and other top European clubs are vying for his signature before their transfer window closes by the end of the month.

Aaron Ramsey

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has withdrawn from the Wales squad ahead of their UEFA Nations League meeting with Home nation rivals, the Republic of Ireland.

Ramsey, 27, will miss the game at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin due to family reasons.

The former Cardiff City star had earlier featured for the team in Thursday’s international friendly game with former world champions Spain.

He captained the Welsh team on Thursday but could not prevent his side from suffering a 4-1 defeat to Luis Enrique and his players.

His withdrawal from the squad was confirmed by the Football Association of Wales (FAW) via a tweet on Monday morning.

He becomes the second high profile player to pull out of the Republic of Ireland game after Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale.

Wales manager Ryan Giggs has promoted Swansea City winger David James from the U21s as a replacement for him.

Aaron Ramsey earlier missed Arsenal’s Europa League away clash at Qarabag to be with his partner who’s pregnant with twins.

Wales manager Ryan Giggs and his players have their work cut out against their rivals.

They would be without their best players, Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, for the game in Dublin.

A win would be enough to take Wales to the top of their group ahead of leaders Denmark.

England vs Spain

England manager Gareth Southgate will make at least two changes to his starting lineup from the Croatia game when his side travels to Spain to take on Luis Enrique’s team in a UEFA Nations League clash on Monday night.

Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson and Manchester City centre-back John Stones are suspended for the game scheduled to take place at the Estadio Benito Villamarin Stadium in the Seville part of Spain.

Both players picked up their second booking of the competition and will miss the crucial game as a result.

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has played very well for the Reds and was one of the best players for England in the last meeting between both sides at the Wembley Stadium last month.

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford gave the Three Lions the lead off an assist from club teammate Luke Shaw before first half goals from the Spanish duo of Saul Niguez and Rodrigo overturned the result in Spain’s favour as they held on for the 2-1 advantage.

In the absence of Henderson, in-form Leicester City midfielder James Maddison is likely to take his place in the starting XI.

Spain vs England XI: Jordan Pickford; Kyle Walker, Joe Gomez, Harry Maguire, Ben Chilwell; Eric Dier, Ross Barkley, James Maddison; Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford, Harry Kane.

Xherdan Shaqiri

Liverpool player Xherdan Shaqiri has explained why he has not been a favourite of manager Jurgen Klopp.

Shaqiri has yet to make any impact since joining the club and he has admitted his first months has been difficult.

The Swiss international therefore stated that he does not expect any favour from the manager as he has yet to make any impact. He is sure he is not a favourite at the club.

He, however, stated that the process under manager Klopp has worked well for him and he believes he will soon get his chance as there are lots of games yet to be played.

Shaqiri acknowledges the work that has been done at the Anfield by the manager and other players, noting that it has been a gradual work in progress.

The Swiss man said he had anticipated there would be hard times at Liverpool knowing the level at which they play and the history of the club.

Liverpool have got most of its strikers underperforming this season with Mohamed Salah, Firmino and Saido Mane all failing to replicate last season’s goal scoring form.

Manager Klopp has held on to his patience on the players keeping faith that they will soon start firing again.

Why I am not the best, Eden Hazard

Chelsea star player Eden Hazard has admitted he is not the best player in the world despite praise and claims made by his manager.

Giving reasons for his statement, the Belgium international stated that to be the best player in the world, you have to score the most goals and that might not be the case yet in his case.

Hazard might be Chelsea’s current highest goal scorer this season with 7 Premier League goals scored in 8 games but he has never won the league’s golden boot which limits him from falling in the ranks of the bests.

He, therefore, adds that manager Maurizio Sarri was right to have demanded more improvements in his game especially in the area of goalscoring.

Meanwhile, Hazard revealed that everything about football for the Chelsea’s Italian manager is all about possession, adding that the manager’s style differs from former club coaches, Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.

The Belgium star revealed that Sarri becomes angry if you don’t have the ball in five minutes as he wants the ball to move across all angles on the pitch.

Sarri joined the Blues in the summer from Italian outfit Napoli and has since changed the face of football at the Stamford Bridge with his introduction of possession football.
