Jose Mourinho

Manchester United manager can’t hide his happiness that one of his star strikers Alexis Sanchez won’t be taking part in Chile’s upcoming fixtures against Japan and South Korea next week.

The forward wasn’t included in the South American country’s squad list for the upcoming friendlies and Mourinho said that is good for his team ahead of the busy September schedule.

According to him, Sanchez will rest for the next two weeks and that will help him regain his form and full fitness.

When asked if he played a role in seeing that team Chilean wasn’t called up for international duties, the Portuguese said he isn’t the type of manager who prevents his players from ignoring their country’s call, so, he didn’t tell the player not to honour Chile’s call.

He assisted the first goal of the encounter which was scored by underfire striker Romelu Lukaku.

Kieran Tierney

Arsenal will reportedly make a third bid for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney in the coming days.

This is according to the publication from Daily Record which revealed that the Gunners are preparing a third bid for the Scottish international left-back.

It was revealed that Arsenal will make another £25m for the player with better payment arrangement.

Arsenal had earlier made a second bid of £25m which included £7m in add-ons.

Celtic swiftly turned down that second bid which had just £18m in upfront payment.

Arsenal will offer more in upfront payment from the £25m to meet the financial demand from Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

The Gunners have identified Kieran Tierney as their major transfer target in their quest to sign a new left-back this summer.

They had earlier made a first bid of just £15m for the player.

Arsenal left-backs Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Mineral were unable to meet up with what was demanded by club manager Unai Emery in that position hence the need to sign a new player for that position.

Kieran Tierney, 22, has been recovering from hernia and hip problems but he’s expected to be fit by next month.

He wants the move to Arsenal but the Scottish player won’t force the transfer.
