Manchester United Forward Criticised For Brighton’s Defeat

Reactions keep coming since United’s famous defeat to Brighton last Sunday.

Pundits, fans, and former footballers can’t stop talking about the club’s unexpected defeat to the Premier League ‘minnows’.

The latest comment on the game is coming from former England’s national team coach Sam Allardyce, who single out Anthony Martial for blame.

The Frenchman has been under huge criticism from Mourinho for a very long time and he’s said to be heading out Old Trafford but the Portuguese manager failed to sanction his proposed move to Tottenham.

According to Sam Allardyce, Martial was poor throughout the game and he lacked the quality of being a United player.

He said the 22-year-old striker has failed to grow in his career after his £50m switch to Old Trafford from Monaco.

While acting as Pundit for BeIN Sport, the former Sunderland manager said the youngster hasn’t justified his price and he needs to up his performance, else he didn’t deserve to be called a United player.

Though Martial was unconvincing during the game, all United players went far from their best.

Martial has proven himself with the Old Trafford outfits as he has been directly involved in 60 goals after 136 matches.

He was named in the starting lineup by Mourinho for the game but he didn’t justify his inclusion, just as every other person in the team.

Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard has been linked with a surprise transfer to Premier League rivals Tottenham in recent days and renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano has given an update on his situation.

The Italian journalist revealed via his official Twitter account that Jesse Lingard could possibly join Jose Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur on one condition.

He said Spurs’ move for Lingard is dependent on whether fellow England international Dele Alli leaves the North London outfit.

Jesse Lingard had earlier been linked with a £30m transfer to North London as he is a player interesting Spurs’ boss Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho and Lingard worked together at Old Trafford when the former was the Manchester United manager. The Portuguese tactician is ready to sell Dele Alli and he wants Jesse Lingard to replace him in the Spurs squad.

Dele Alli started well when Jose Mourinho was named Tottenham Hotspur at the end of last year but his form has dropped off in recent weeks.

He has been left out of the last two Premier League matchday squads by Jose Mourinho and was rejected by Real Madrid as part of discussions that saw Spurs sign both Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale last week.

French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan have been linked with Dele Alli.

Ismaila Sarr

Manchester United have been offered the opportunity to sign Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr according to reports from 90min after Liverpool ended their interest in the player.

Ismaila Sarr was a Premier League player until the end of the last campaign when his Watford side suffered relegation.

The Independent had earlier revealed last week that both Liverpool and Manchester United are interested in the Senegalese international.

The Reds were in pole position to sign the 22-year-old until Watford quoted over £50m as his transfer fee and that £40m should be paid as the initial fee for the deal.

The Premier League champions opted to sign Portuguese international Diogo Jota from Wolves in a £45m deal.

With Liverpool out of the picture as far as the signing of Ismaila Sarr is concerned thus leaving Manchester United with the opportunity to sign the former Rennes attacker.

Watford signed Ismaila Sarr from Rennes in a £30m deal.

Sarr could be the answer to Manchester United’s problems on the right wing.

He scored five goals and also provided six assists in 22 starts in the colours of Watford in his first season as a Premier League player.

Sarr is easily Watford’s prized asset and he’s expected to leave the club in this transfer window.

Gary Neville

If the words of former Man United Gary Neville are to be followed by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, then the priority of the club in the summer transfer window will now change.

The Red Devils’ priority has been the signing of England international winger Jadon Sancho with a lot of time spent on his negotiation but there is yet to be any headway for a deal to be sealed.

Man United started their Premier League campaign on a bad note as they suffered a 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon with an awful performance.

Former Man United Gary Neville is now of the opinion that the Red Devils cannot afford to make a winger their top target as he claims that they need a centre-back more than other departments.

While lamenting the quality of the team, he was quick to say that the Red Devils cannot win the Premier League with the current setup of the team, stressing that the combination of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof cannot be trusted.

According to Gary Neville, Man United need a mobile, quick, dominant, centre-back that will pair with either of the two and that must be done before the end of the summer transfer window to save the season.

Jesse Lingard

North London club Tottenham are obviously not done with transfer activities as they are reported by Daily Star Sunday to be interested in the signature of Man United’s midfielder Jesse Lingard.

Two of Tottenham’s transfer this summer has a link with Man United as they were also targets of the Red Devils but the North London outfit was fast in making the decision and taking the steps.

It would be recalled that Man United were reported to have held talks with Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon but he ended up agreeing on a deal with Tottenham after holding talks with Jose Mourinho.

The same story was heard of Wales international Gareth Bale who decided in favour of the North London club ahead of the old Trafford, a development that hurts Man United.

Now, it is reported that Tottenham will raid United, not for their target but for their player as they are keen on having a stronger team this season to be able to compete for titles.

The 27-year-old English midfielder has been tipped to be sold for £30 million if any deal is to happen between the two clubs this summer transfer window but what is really unknown is if the Red Devils agree to release Jesse Lingard to Tottenham.

Daniel James

Leeds United are reported to be monitoring the situation with Man United winger Daniel James and will make an attempt to snap him up if he is available for sale in this summer transfer window.

Daily Star Sunday claims that should he become surplus to the requirement under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Leeds United will take up that opportunity to make a move for him as they are interested in his service.

Daniel James only joined Man United from Swansea City in 2018 and there have been controversial ratings of the player, despite his speed and quality which makes him linked with a move away from the club.

However, much of his potential is yet to be seen at Man United but there are already moves by the club to bring in another winger in this summer transfer window with Jadon Sancho as the top target.

While a deal for Jadon Sancho is proving very difficult, it is understood that the Red Devils will still sign a winger this window as an alternative.

After suffering a 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that his team will have to make more signings to be able to win.

Man United player and goalkeeper Sergio Romero seem to have agreed on the decision to part ways this summer window as the player seeks a new challenge elsewhere.

It is understood that the Argentina international has been unhappy at the club since he was snubbed by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the semi-final defeat they suffered against Sevilla in the Europa League last season.

More to it is the fact that he has been relegated to the third choice with the arrival of Dean Henderson at the club after being an understudy goalkeeper for several years.

SunSport has been reliably informed that the 33-year-old will now be leaving the club this summer window with the Red Devils also agreeing to his wish to move on.

It is also reported that the Red Devils chiefs are open to him leav8ing and are working on finding a new club where he will have a regular playing time with the first-team.

Meanwhile, we expect to see a fight for the first-team shirt between Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea and Dean Henderson this season as the latter is keen on taking up the No.1 role after his return from a season-long loan.

Spanish La Liga outfit Valencia are reportedly ready to pay £6 million for the service of Sergio Romero.

Ed Woodward

English Premier League outfit Man United chief Ed Woodward seems to have ended the speculations that the club will be making a move for England international winger Jadon Sancho this summer transfer window.

The interest in the Man City academy product is true and a serious one but the £100 million fee has been the issue which the club cannot meet with the current financial situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

A winger remains a top target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and he is bent on having it done with another option as a deal for the Borussia Dortmund winger now looks impossible.

According to Ed Woodward, the pandemic is creating a huge economic pressure on clubs, stressing that his team is not immune from it, the reason why they must spend wisely.

While insisting that his side must be responsible, he is more concerned about investments in youth players that will assure of the future if they must survive this trying time.

Howbeit, the Red Devils lost their opening game of the season to Crystal Palace and that has created more need to bring in new players to the team and this was confirmed by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the 3-1 defeat.

Calum Chambers

Newcastle are reportedly set to return to Arsenal for the signature of Calum Chambers who is out of favour at the club and is expected to leave for the right offer in this transfer window.

This will be the second return for the Magpies after they earlier made a loan move for Rob Holding but was rejected by the North London club. Manager Mikel Arteta has been able to convince the English defender to remain at the club and fight for his place.

Newcastle are now hoping to convince Arsenal for the signature of Calum Chambers after Rob Holding disappointment and that seems possible with the Gunners also willing to let him go.

However, Newcastle must be willing to spend as their loan bid might not be accepted by Arsenal as a result of the need to let him leave on a permanent deal for £12 million.

It is understood that the North London outfit will not buy the idea of a loan deal and will only be opened for talks with any club that is ready for a permanent deal.

The North London club can boast of more centre-back in the team with the addition of William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes.
