Truth Revealed: This Is When Mourinho Will Be Sacked By United
Manchester United manager José Mourinho’s days at Old Trafford are numbered, that’s according former Liverpool player Jamie Carragher.
Mourinho started his United career on a very bright note, winning the League Cup and Europa League in his first season.
The Portuguese manager didn’t do too badly in his second season as he ended up in the second position, 19 points behind their neighbours Manchester City, who won the League on a record-breaking fashion.
However, things haven’t gone well with the gaffer this season as he has had to face many off-pitch issues.
He has a broken relationship with one of his star player Paul Pogba, who is highly-rated by the club’s hierarchy.
To further deepen his crisis at the club, Mourinho’s men were defeated by Brighton on Sunday.
As result of the recent unexpected defeat, coupled with his unhealthy relationship with his employers and players, reports are claiming that the former Real Madrid manager could be shown the exit door before the end of the season.
While confirming the reports, Carragher said that Ed Woodward and his board members are beginning to lost their trust in the manager’s tactics and they might be forced to end ties with him.
Should the team continue in their disgraceful performance, the former Liverpool star told Sky Sports that Mourinho will definitely be sent packing out of the Theater of Dreams.
‘If performances continue like that, I don’t think Jose will be Manchester United manager next season,’ Liverpool legend
Carragher told Sky Sports.
Arsenal in transfer battle for 18-year-old striker
English Premier League club Arsenal are reported to be in a transfer battle with a host of clubs for the signature of French Ligue 1 outfit Rennes striker Georginio Rutter in this summer transfer window.
Georginio Rutter is one of the most exciting young players in the French Ligue 1 to have been attracting interest from across Europe. The likes of Newcastle United, RB Leipzig, Lyon, and AC Milan are all lined up for his signature.
The battle for the signature of Georginio Rutter became intense after the clubs learned that he has rejected a new deal with Rennes and will be set to leave the club any moment from now.

It is also understood that the French side are unwilling to let him go for nothing less than his 10 million pounds valuation which most of his suitors are willing to pay.
Apparently, Georginio Rutter is not a priority for the North London club but no doubt that he will add to the options and bring in the competition in the team after Arsenal scouts gave a pleasing report of him.
His current contract with Rennes ends in June 2021 which makes it important for him to be sold this summer window or risk losing him for free.
Lacazette’s future might not be settled yet
It has been confirmed that the future of French striker Alexandre Lacazette at Arsenal is far being settled following claims by manager Mile Arteta that the club is yet to open start contract talks with him.
This summer transfer window has seen the future of the former Lyon striker being debated with suggestions that he would be leaving as a result of the limited starting role he had last season.
Some reports immediately linked him with a move Italian Serie A outfit Juventus while others claim he is being wanted at the Spanish La Liga club Atletico Madrid.

Alexandre Lacazette has come out to dismissal of the reports, insisting that he is happy at the Emirates Stadium and will continue to respect the decision of the Spanish manager.
However, Mikel Arteta told Sky Sports that the French Man who scored his 50th goal for Arsenal in Saturday’s 2-1 win over West Ham United is currently not in negotiation for a new deal with the club.
The North London manager, therefore, noted that he is happy with the player but there cannot be any speculation over his future as the focus for the club is to make more additions in this summer window.
Brentford hand David Raya condition to Arsenal
English Premier League club Arsenal have been told by Brentford that they can only have their goalkeeper target, David Raya, if they will agree to loan him back for the rest of the season.
The Telegraph reports that the Bees rejected a £10m bid from Arsenal for the Spanish goalkeeper who made 49 appearances last season.
It is understood that the 25-year-old is well known to Arsenal’s goalkeeper coach Inaki Cana because the tutor was with Brentford before moving to Arsenal in December last year.

David Raya is needed at Arsenal with the exit of Argentina shot-stopper Emi Martinez who has left the club to join Aston Villa after a brilliant performance that helped him deliver the FA Cup and the Community Shield. No doubt he left when the ovation was high.
Bernd Leno is now left as the only viable option as a goalkeeper at the Emirates Stadium under manager Mikel Arteta.
With Arsenal looking to sign more players before the end of the summer transfer window, there is no doubt a new goalkeeper will be brought in.
It is understood that the Gunners are close to sealing a deal for Dijon goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson as he has passed the first stage of medicals.
Lyon president sends Aouar message to Arsenal
Arsenal have been told by Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas that they have the opportunity to sign their top target Houssem Aouar but that will not happen until they are willing to meet his £44 million valuation.
The North London outfit are confirmed to have indicated an interest in the French Ligue 1 star but they are yet to agree on a deal as negotiations are still ongoing. Manager Mikel Arteta has hinted that the club is still in the market to add more players to the team.
When asked if Houssem Aouar would join the north London side, Jean-Michel Aulas reportedly said No because the Premier League side had not submitted an offer yet.

Now it is claimed that talks have been opened between the two clubs over a deal as the 22-year-old is understood to be keen on a move to Arsenal.
Arsenal will have to wait till the last minutes to stand the chance of having their £36m bid to be accepted.
Houssem Aouar is an important part of the Lyon team that reached the Champions League semi-finals by defeating Italian Serie A champions Juventus in the last-16 and Manchester City in the quarter-finals.
Should he join Arsenal, he will be an automatic replacement to Mesut Ozil who is still around but has been frozen out of the team.

Other Liverpool signings this summer are left-back Kostantinos Tsimikas and midfielder Thiago Alcantara.
Barcelona Banned From Signing Liverpool Midfielder
Spanish giants Barcelona have been banned the club from signing midfield target Georginio Wijnaldum from Premier League champions Liverpool this summer.
La Liga officials have implemented strict financial guidelines on clubs in the top division this summer due to the Coronavirus Pandemic thus affecting Barcelona and their plans to sign players.
New Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman had wanted to sign Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool and Memphis Depay from French giants Lyon this summer but the Dutch tactician is unlikely to get his targets.
Wijnaldum and Depay both have one year left on their respective deals at Liverpool and Lyon. The two players were instrumental to the successes recorded by Ronald Koeman during his time as the Dutch national team manager.

Koeman left the Dutch job to take the managerial position at the Nou Camp.
La Liga’s Communications Director Joris Evers recently said that the football body has a new financial model that goes beyond the financial fairplay previously implemented by European football body UEFA.
Under the new financial guidelines, Barcelona will have to sell players to sign new players as they are struggling with an annual wage bill of €510m.
In addition, Barcelona also have to pay the same amount as the transfer fee to the Spanish government as part of the financial assistance to clubs during this Coronavirus Pandemic era.
Liverpool Have Made Contact To Sign £40million Defender
Premier League champions Liverpool have improved their title-winning squad with two signings in the space of two days and it looks like the Merseysiders are not done with transfers according to journalist Chris Williams.

His replacement at Liverpool could be Ozan Kabak who’s rated at £40m by his German Bundesliga outfit.
Schalke 04 have financial issues at the moment and a bid of around £22m could be enough to prise Kabak away from the Germans.
Ozan Kabak, 20, was in the starting XI as Schalke 04 travelled to Munich to face Bavarian giants and treble winners Bayern Munich in the first game of the 2020/21 German Bundesliga season.
He was unable to prevent his team from suffering a heavy defeat against Bayern.
Ozan Kabak played 90 minutes as Bayern thrashed Schalke 04 8-0.
Former Arsenal forward Serge Gnabry was the star of the show as he scored a treble.
