Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Senior Manchester United officials will reportedly consult with interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the fate of five players in the Red Devils squad.

The Daily Express revealed that the Manchester United hierarchy will seek the opinion of Solskjaer on whether to let the players go on a free transfer or offer them a contract extension to commit their long-term futures to the club.

The five players in question include Juan Manuel Mata, Ander Herrera, Antonio Valencia, Andreas Pereira and Phil Jones.

Ex-Manchester United striker Solskjaer was appointed the club manager on an interim basis in December until the end of this season and he’s not expected to stay beyond with Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino lined up as the next permanent manager for the Red Devils.

Despite the fact that he won’t stay beyond this season, the interim Manchester United manager will have a say in their futures.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made an excellent start to his managerial career with the club with five wins from five games in all competitions.

He recorded his fifth win in a row in the FA Cup third round clash with English Championship side Reading at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Mata (pen) and Lukaku scored either side of the halftime interval to give Manchester United a 2-0 victory.

Manchester United Youngster

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has debunked loan exit rumours surrounding one of his midfielders in this January transfer window.

Red Devils midfielder Scott McTominay has been heavily linked with a transfer away from the club this month.

The 22-year-old has been touted as a loan transfer acquisition for several Scottish Premiership and English Championship sides.

Ex-Red Devils striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer dismissed the loan transfer rumours during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Premier League clash with Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.

Solskjaer said that he does not expect Scott McTominay to leave the club on loan in the current January transfer window.

McTominay has featured just once under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since the Norwegian was named the interim manager at Manchester United.

He played for the Red Devils during the 2-0 defeat handed out to English Championship side Reading in the third round of the FA Cup.

Manchester United have been a different outfit from the one under Jose Mourinho since Solskjaer took over.

They have won their last six games in all competitions with the latest victory coming in the Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday evening.

Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the game to hand his side a 1-0 away win over Spurs.

Marouane Fellaini

Three-time European champions Manchester United have been dealt a big transfer blow after midfielder Marouane Fellaini was ruled out of action for a long period.

The Belgian international midfielder is almost certain to miss the next four to six weeks of football action after he suffered a calf injury.

Marouane Fellaini has fallen out of favour at Manchester United since former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the manager.

Norwegian tactician Solskjaer was made the Red Devils manager until the end of the season after Jose Mourinho was dismissed from his job as the Manchester United boss.

The Old Trafford giants were hoping to raise around £15m from the sale of Marouane Fellaini but the latest development might have jeopardized the club’s ability to raise money by selling him.

Several clubs were interested in a transfer for Fellaini and it remains to be seen whether they will retain their interest in him despite the aforementioned calf injury.

European teams like Italian Serie A club AC Milan and Portuguese champions FC Porto have registered their interest in Marouane Fellaini alongside Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande.

Former Everton midfielder Fellaini has played just one game for Manchester United since Solskjaer became the manager and that was in the 2-0 victory over Reading at home in the third round of the FA Cup.

English Premier League outfit Chelsea are reported to be monitoring Heerenveen winger Arber Zeneli and could make a move for him before this January winter transfer window comes to an end.

Arber Zeneli will be out of contract with his club in June which makes him available this winter with no talks of a new deal on the table for him at the moment.

Should Heerenveen refuse to have the Kosovo international, 23 leave before the end of this month, they risk the chance of losing him for free at the end of the season with the keen interest coming from the West London side for him.

The West London side are on the verge of losing their star player and Belgium international Eden Hazard which makes Arber Zeneli a good fit knowing that he has got age on his side and has shown good prospect.

However, the Blues are reportedly preparing scouts to send to watch his game against Ajax this weekend so as to make a final decision on him.

The Blues will face a number of competitions from English Premier League sides as they are all keen to land the player as well.

Suggestions are that Arber Zeneli will not hesitate to jump into an offer from the West London side when it is finally tabled.

Andy Robertson

English Preemie League leaders Liverpool have been able to convince star defender Andy Robertson into committing his future with the club as they had him a five-year contract extension.

Liverpool had made a lot of effort before succeeding in convincing the Scotland national team skipper who arrived from Hull City for a fee of £8 million.

Andy Robertson is the latest to commit his future to the club after the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Joe Gomez.

The player has expressed his delight at committing his future to the Mersey side club as he hopes to achieve greatness under the German boss Jurgen Klopp.

Andy Robertson made it clear that the club is in need of trophies as he hopes the wait is over for them especially with the team’s current form and unbeaten run in the English Premier League.

However, the Reds are keen on a title win this season knowing that the former Borussia Dortmund boss has not won any title since joining the club some three years back.

Efforts to break the deadlock last season failed as he was defeated n the Champions League finals against Real Madrid as well as finish second behind Man City in the League.

Hirving Lozano

Arsenal are reportedly plotting a transfer for highly rated PSV Eindhoven star Hirving Lozano.

According to the publication from Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb, the Gunners are stepping up their interest in the Mexican international.

Arsenal have joined other clubs in expressing their interest in him.

The Gunners have already confirmed that they can only sign players on loan in the current January transfer window but that has not stopped the club from identifying possible signings including Hirving Lozano.

Mexican attacker Lozano has been one of the standout performers in the Dutch Eredivisie over the past two seasons.

He has also been attracting the interest of major European heavyweights like Chelsea and Spanish champions Barcelona though Italian Serie A giants Napoli are believed to be in pole position for him.

Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti is a big admirer of the player with reports claiming that the Italians have already held talks with his agent Mino Raiola.

Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven have already slapped a €40m (£35m) asking price on Hirving Lozano which is a significant increase on the transfer fee required to sign him shortly after last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

PSV had earlier slapped a €30m (£26m) asking price on him.

Man United Fail In Bid To Offload Marcos Rojo Three Times

Marcos Rojo

It has been revealed that Manchester United tried to offload one of their defenders on three occasions but failed to achieve their aim.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils have tried to sell Marcos Rojo three times.

Argentine international defender Rojo was one of the players signed under the managerial reign of Dutchman Louis Van Gaal (LVG).

Rojo joined Manchester United from Portuguese Super League giants Sporting Lisbon in 2014.

Manchester United first tried to offload him in 2015 and then in 2016 following the £30m signing of Ivorian international Eric Bailly from Spanish La Liga outfit Villarreal in the summer of that year.

The Red Devils tried to get Marcos Rojo off their payroll last year with fellow Premier League side Everton interested in him but his weekly wages proved to be a major stumbling block to a possible move.

Marcos Rojo is one of several Manchester United players with just few months left on their respective contracts and it’s almost certain that the Argentine won’t be offered a new deal that will see him stay at the club beyond this summer.

Club captain Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Andreas Pereira, Juan Manuel Mata, and Ander Herrera also have less than six months left on their contracts at Old Trafford.

Man United In Three-Way Battle For Premier League Right-back

Three-time European champions Manchester United are in a three-way battle in their quest to sign one of the young prospects on the Premier League scene.

The Daily Mirror claim that the Red Devils have to battle with rivals Manchester City and Chelsea for Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

It was revealed that the three clubs have been scouting the young England defender.

The 21-year-old has been in sensational form for the Eagles in what’s his breakthrough season in the colours of the South London club.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has played all but one of the Eagles’ Premier League games this season and that was because of suspension.

Wan-Bissaka has replaced Joel Ward as the first choice right-back at Crystal Palace.

Manchester United will have to fend off the interest of both Manchester City and Chelsea for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The Red Devils want to improve their squad on the defensive front in the wake of a very poor defensive record this season.

Manchester United have conceded 32 goals alone this season in 22 league games this term in addition to just four clean sheets all season.

The Red Devils defence was back to the best at the weekend after they kept a rare clean sheet in the 1-0 away win over top four rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Milan Skriniar

Manchester United have been dealt a big blow in the bid to sign highly rated Inter Milan centre back Milan Skriniar following the news that his club will sit down with his representatives over a new deal next month.

Milan Skriniar plays his club football with Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan at the moment.

The 23-year-old has been a key player for Inter Milan since he joined the Nerazzurri from fellow Italian top flight side Sampdoria at the start of last season in a deal worth £20m.

The Slovakian international defender is widely regarded as one of the best centre backs on the Italian football scene alongside the likes of Napoli centre back Kalidou Koulibaly and Juventus star Giorgio Chiellini.

His Inter Milan form has been attracting the interests of two major European clubs namely Manchester United and Barcelona.

Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona have already turned their attention to Ajax Amsterdam defender Matthijs De Ligt thus giving the Red Devils a free run at Milan Skriniar.

The Slovakian centre back would certainly add defensive solidity to the Manchester United team but a transfer is a long way off with the player contracted to Inter Milan until the end of the 2021/22 season.

Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac has dismissed exit rumors hovering over midfielder James Rodriguez.

The Colombian international playmaker has been linked with an exit from the German club whom he joined at the start of last season.

James Rodriguez signed for the Bavarian giants from European champions Real Madrid on a two-year loan deal after Bayern paid £11.5m for him with the option to make it permanent for around £37m.

James Rodriguez has not had the same impact as last season in this new campaign amidst reports that he has fallen out of favour with Niko Kovac.

The Croatian tactician spoke about James Rodriguez ahead of his side’s Bundesliga clash with TSG Hoffenheim at the weekend.

Niko Kovac revealed that the Colombian national team talisman wants to stay at the Allianz Arena just like the player said during a recent event.

This is certainly not what Arsenal fans want to hear with the Gunners faithful crying out for senior club officials to reinforce the squad with new signings.

The Gunners have been touted as a potential destination for James Rodriguez with reports claiming that Arsenal can sign him for the remainder of his Bayern Munich loan deal for just £3m.
