Nemanja Matic

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has named one area of concern for his side despite the 2-1 win over Everton in a Premier League game at the weekend.

The Serbian international star spoke about the game against the Merseyside club in an interview via teamtalk.

According to him, the Red Devils must be ruthless in front of goals ahead of upcoming matches.

Matic was on from start to finish as Manchester United secured a second win in three league matches.

Manchester United took the lead in the 27th minute after French midfielder Paul Pogba hit the back of the net with a rebound from his missed penalty.

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford saved the penalty from Pogba after Idrissa ‘Gana’ Gueye brought down Anthony Martial in the box.

Former AS Monaco player Martial added a second goal on 49 minutes off an assist from Pogba.

The ex-Juventus midfielder then lost possession in the buildup to the Everton penalty won by Brazilian forward Richarlison off the challenge from defender Chris Smalling.

Icelandic international midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson dispatched the penalty but the hosts held on for an important win.

The victory was enough to take Manchester United above Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton on the league table.

The Red Devils now occupy eight position on the Premier League log.

Edinson Cavani

French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) officials have delivered a firm transfer verdict on striker Edinson Cavani who is a target for both Manchester United and Chelsea.

According to Goal via one of its publications, PSG sporting director Leonardo and club manager Thomas Tuchel see Edison Cavani as an important part of their squad and they don’t want him to leave the club this month despite the fact that the Uruguayan international player has six months remaining on his PSG contract at the moment.

Several clubs are ready to offer PSG some money for the final six months of the player’s contract but club officials prefer to lose his services this summer on a free transfer.

Edinson Cavani had been a regular in the PSG starting XI for several years until last summer when the French champions signed Mauro Icardi on loan from Inter Milan in the Italian Serie A.

Mauro Icardi has taken his spot in the first team aided by the injury to Edison Cavani at the start of the season.

Atletico Madrid are in pole position to sign Edison Cavani and have already offered €10m for him though it was turned down by PSG who says he is not for sale.

Timo Werner

Chelsea might lose out to Premier League rivals Liverpool in the race to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner who has painted the German Bundesliga with goals this season.

This is according to German publication Bild which stated that Timo Werner prefers a move to Liverpool over Chelsea.

It was revealed that the German international wants a transfer to the Premier League this summer which is a plus to both Liverpool and Chelsea.

Timo Werner was initially linked with a January move to the Premier League only for him to confirm that he’ll be staying with RB Leipzig throughout this season.

The petite German attacker has been in red-hot form for RB Leipzig who are at the summit in the top flight of German football.

RB Leipzig have a four-point lead at the top of the German Bundesliga table after 18 games and Timo Werner has contributed immensely to that achievement.

Werner has scored 20 goals in the league this season which is more than any other player in the division and alongside Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski who also has 20 goals to his name.

In total, Timo Werner has scored 25 goals in 25 games for his club who are also in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Christian Eriksen

According to FCInter News, Inter Milan have already set a medical date for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen as they close in on the signing of the player also linked to both Real Madrid and Manchester United.

Christian Eriksen waited for a transfer to Real Madrid last summer but it didn’t come through until that transfer window ended. He snubbed a move to Manchester United while waiting on Real Madrid at the start of this season.

Inter Milan have already made a bid for the 28-year-old Danish international playmaker which is nearer to the €20m (£17m) valuation from North London club Tottenham Hotspur and are confident that the player will have his medical by Thursday.

It was revealed that Inter Milan are keen for the player to wrap up the move before weekend just in time for the upcoming league clash at home to Cagliari.

Inter Milan have already dropped behind in the title race after two successive draws and three points is almost non-negotiable if they want to end the reign of Juventus in Italian football.

Juventus have won the last eight league titles and they are on course for another title after opening a four-point lead over Inter Milan though Lazio have a game in hand and a win from the game would see them move within three points of the Old Lady.
