Manchester United stand-in captain Paul Pogba has been criticised for his comments over the side’s 3-2 lost to Brighton.

The Frenchman said he has a wrong attitude during the game and that was why the team lost to their opponents in such a manner.

According to Pogba, his teammates didn’t go into the team with the right mind and attitude, therefore, they lost to a very determined side.

However, former Manchester United player Paul Scholes has hit back at the player for his comments.

The former midfielder told said Pogba’s comment isn’t an excuse for losing in such manner against a side, whom many tagged as ‘minnows’

Scholes, who was very furious with the playmaker, charged him to make his attitude right and ensure that the team are on the same wavelength so as to return back to winning ways as soon as possible.

Pogba and Mourinho are reportedly having a huge rift and that is telling on the team’s performances.

It was said that the 25-year-old playmaker has refused to speak directly to the manager while Mourinho is also not ready to make peace the player.

Yesterday’s result wasn’t a great result for the team, who were hoping to make it two wins from two matches.

Lucas Torreira

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira could be on his way to Atletico Madrid as per the reports in some media outlets and top Gunners target Thomas Partey might move in the opposite direction.

The Daily Star claimed that Atletico Madrid have moved ahead of the Italian duo of Torino and Fiorentina in the race to sign Uruguayan international Torreira.

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone is said to be a big fan of the battling midfielder and that he’s keen to add him to the playing squad at the new Wanda Metropolitano.

El Gol Digital stated that Diego Simeone and Atletico Madrid need to sell some players to wrap up a transfer for the aforementioned Lucas Torreira and this is where the Gunners’ interest in Thomas Partey could be advantageous.

Arsenal and Atletico Madrid could do a swap deal involving the two players, Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira though the Gunners will have to offer money in addition to Torreira for Ghanaian international Partey.

Torino and Fiorentina are only interested in a loan deal for Lucas Torreira and that has paved the way for Atletico Madrid to usurp them.

Lucas Torreira has barely featured under Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta who assumed his position in December 2019.

Houssem Aouar

Arsenal are closing in on the signing of highly-rated Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar according to reports coming out from the Italian media.

Eleven Sports Italia correspondent Luca Florino revealed that the Gunners have already agreed on personal terms with the French junior international.

He further said that Arsenal are preparing a €45m bid for the player though Lyon are holding out for almost €50m.

Houssem Aouar is the number one transfer target for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta as per the unnamed sources cited by ESPN.

The Lyon skipper has already informed the club that he would like to join the Gunners and the onus is on Arsenal to make the transfer happen.

Arsenal had earlier offered cash plus midfielder Matteo Guendouzi but the offer was turned down. Lyon didn’t want a player like Guendouzi as he does not fit their profile according to sporting director Juninho Pernambucano.

Houssem Aouar led Lyon to relatively unfamiliar territory in the Champions League last season.

Lyon stunned a lot of football fans and stakeholders as they saw off Juventus in the round of 16 before brushing aside Manchester City in the quarterfinals.

Houssem Aouar scored one goal in addition to four assists in eight games as Lyon reached the last four.

Lucas Torreira

North London giants Arsenal have rejected the opening offer from Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid for one of their midfielders.

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira is attracting serious interest from Diego Simeone with the Atletico Madrid boss said to be a fan of the petite Uruguayan international.

Italian journalist Matteo Pedrosi said that the Gunners turned down the opening offer of a loan deal from Atletico Madrid for Lucas Torreira.

Atletico Madrid wanted to sign the Gunners midfielder on loan with an option to sign him on a permanent deal.

The Spaniards are cash strapped at the moment and they need to release some of their players to fund the signing of new players like Lucas Torreira.

Arsenal are interested in Thomas Partey from the Atletico Madrid squad thus making the potential deals for Torreira and Partey almost straightforward.

Lucas Torreira signed for the Gunners in 2018 following the £26m transfer from Sampdoria in the Italian top flight.

Arteta has preferred midfielders like Granit Xhaka, Mohamed ElNeny, Joe Willock and Dani Ceballos ahead of Torreira.

The Uruguayan international was left out of the Arsenal squad for the opening league game at Fulham which ended in a 3-0 away win for the Gunners.

He was also conspicuously absent for the second league game of the season, a 2-1 win at home to West Ham United.

Gary Neville

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has urged the club to strengthen a key position in the team on the back of the humiliating defeat suffered at the hands of Crystal Palace.

Gary Neville talked about Manchester United and what they need to do in the transfer window on Sky Sports at the weekend.

The former Red Devils skipper was hugely disappointed as Crystal Palace claimed a second successive away victory at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

He said that Manchester United need to sign a new centre back during this transfer window if they are to achieve their targets for this season.

Gary Neville urged the club to sign a new centre back to partner skipper Harry Maguire at the heart of the Manchester United defence.

His defensive partner Victor Lindelof was culpable for the three goals scored by Crystal Palace in what was the opening game of the season for Manchester United.

Crystal Palace had beaten Manchester United 2-1 at the same venue and they repeated the same outcome of an away win in week two of this season’s Premier League campaign.

Former Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha was the star of the game as he netted two second-half goals to give Palace a 3-1 win over their hosts.

Fellow winger Andros Townsend had given Palace an early lead before Zaha added a second goal from the penalty spot in the second half.

New Manchester United signing Donny Van De Beek pulled one back to give his team a lifeline before Zaha sealed the points some minutes later.

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.

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.
