Gareth Bale

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale is finding it hard to find a new club ahead of next season according to widespread reports coming out of the media in Spain.

Welsh international Bale is surplus to requirements at Real Madrid with manager Zinedine Zidane keen to get him off the wage bill at the club.

According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Gareth Bale is not attracting interest from clubs though he has previously been linked with Premier League giants Manchester United.

A transfer to Manchester United is no longer possible after the Red Devils missed out on Champions League football.

Without Champions League football, Manchester United won’t be able to pay his £14.6m salary.

Manchester United won’t play in the Champions League next season after they were unable to secure a finish in the top four places on the Premier League table after the disappointing 1-1 draw with basement club Huddersfield Town at the weekend.

Gareth Bale might have missed the chance to play for Manchester United in his career after coming close to joining them when he left Tottenham Hotspur for Real Madrid in a then world-record fee of £85.3m in 2013.

The Welsh international star won the Champions League for Real Madrid in his debut season and he has won three more Champions League titles.

Jesse Lingard

Man United will be forced to keep waiting for Jesse Lingard to make a decision over his future as his words are being expected by the club before the end of the summer transfer window.

With one year left to the end of his contract with the club, Jesse Lingard has been told by the club that he can leave but the 27-year-old has not brought in any formal offer.

Although, Sky Sports reports that his representatives have been holding talks with some English clubs on a possible deal but the player seems not to be decided yet, over his future.

Despite starting a game for Man United for the first time this season against Luton in the Carabao Cup clash on Tuesday, he cannot be guaranteed a starting role in the club this season.

However, Man United must free up the team to be able to accommodate other signings as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear that he will be making some signings before the end of the summer transfer window.

The club is currently being affected by the coronavirus pandemic and that can be blamed for their slow summer transfer activities as they have missed out on a number of targets so far.

Jorginho

Arsenal fans already have their attention on the club’s two major targets for the midfield role but that might not happen because of the difficulty in sealing the deals.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar from Lyon are the two targets for the Gunners this summer window after the signing of Willian from Chelsea and Gabriel Magalhaes from French Ligue 1 outfit, Lille.

The Gunners have been making efforts to convince both Lille and Atletico Madrid over the deal but that has proved difficult as both clubs are not willing to negotiate the asking prices for their players while efforts to reduce the financial burden by including a player as a swap deal was turned down.

It is now understood that the North London outfit might not be able to seal the move for either of the players and will now consider other options with Chelsea midfielder Jorginho as a possible deal as Sky Sports reports that Mikel Arteta is keen to add another midfielder to his books.

Jorginho has been linked away from the Stamford Bridge to join former manager Maurizio Sarri at Juventus but the speculations have been laid to rest with the sack of the Italian manager. The player could still leave the West London outfit with Arsenal considering submitting an offer.

Dayot Upamecano

Man United have continued to be linked with Dayot Upamecano from the German Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig but there have not been any concrete report of negotiations with the player.

It is reported that the Red Devils are still making moves to move in for the player before the end of the summer transfer window, especially after they were defeated in their opening game of the season.

However, the player has something to tell the Red Devils regarding their interest in him. He stated that he is fully focused on staying with RB Leipzig this season, not minding the speculations of offers from his suitors.

Dayot Upamecano confirmed speaking with some clubs as regards a move away from Germany but he will remain focused on the game this season while he will not force anything to happen.

The young defender was at his peak last season for the German Bundesliga club, helping them to reach the Champions League semi-finals last season and that has earned him the attention all around Europe.

With less than two weeks to the end of the summer transfer window, the direction of the Red Devils for the summer transfer market is yet to be known but the fans have been assured of seeing new faces at the club this season.

Samuel Umtiti

The Red Devils have been reported to be planning a late swoop for the signature of Barcelona and French defender, Samuel Umtiti, according to France Football.

The future of the World Cup winner at the Camp Nou is very unlikely and has been linked with a move away from the club with Arsenal and Man United mentioned as possible destinations for the Frenchman.

The chances of Arsenal continuing with their reported pursuit of Samuel Umtiti are slim as they have already made some defensive additions with Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba.

However, Man United are yet to settle their defensive challenge and that could lead them into making a move for the French defender who is out of favour with the Spanish La Liga outfit.

While Barcelona can boast of other options in their team for the season’s challenge, they also want to cut down their wage bill as a result of the financial downturn, a major reason why Samuel Umtiti could be sold.

Pundits have told manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he needs to bring in another centre-half that will pair with Harry Maguire to be able to avoid unnecessary defeats.

Samuel Umtiti could also be the ideal player for the Red Devils knowing his experience in the game at a big level.

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has called on the club’s board to bring in strikers if he must perform this season.

He has also listed Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster and Arsenal’s youngster Folarin Balogun as the players he is interested in working with this summer window. His choice has also been motivated by the fact that they will be easy to access financially.

Chris Wilder believes the summer transfer activates will not be complete without reinforcing the attack of the Blades this season as he has reportedly spoken with Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp on getting Rhian Brewster on loan this season but he is yet to get the reply from the German boss.

Sheffield United are also reported to have made an approach for Folarin Balogun who is Arsenal’s U-23s hitman and are also waiting for a response from the North London outfit.

The Gunners were initially not willing to let go of the Nigerian kid but he is bent on having a first-team experience and has refused to sign a new deal with his current contract expiring in June.

Folarin Balogun has been tipped to step in the shoes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with his potentials and it is hoped that he can still be convinced to be a little patient.

The Gunners have had an earlier bid rejected while a swap deal proposal was turned down with Lyon keen to take Houssem Aouar’s asking price of £54 million.

With manager Mikel Arteta desperate on a midfielder, the club could be forced to make some big decisions, including selling some of the players to be able to raise some funds for the deal.

The Independent reports that French striker Alexandre Lacazette could be the man to be sold to raise some funds for the deal with two years left to the end of his contract.

It is understood that the former Lyon striker will not be lacking in suitor once he is asked to leave the club as Italian Serie A outfit Juventus are one of those expected to make a move for him.

However, this reported decision to sell Alexandre Lacazette might not go down well with the fans that have much faith in the striker to help deliver goals. The French striker has also not been lacking in his duty to score this season.

Donny Van Der Beek

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has taken a dig at Man United by claiming that their new signing Donny van de Beek would have fit into the Gunners system more than the Red Devils.

Donny van de Beek is the only major signing by Man United this season after joining from Ajax to add to the options in the midfield.

Ian Wright claims the Dutch midfielder could have been better at Arsenal when he spoke on The Kelly & Wrighty Show. He noted that Donny van de Beek’s quality already exists at the Old Trafford before his coming, adding that he does the same thing as Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes.

The Arsenal legend admits the Dutch midfielder is a great player but he might not give more than what the Red Devils already have because his preferred positions are already being handled by great players.

However, the Gunners are currently in the search for a new midfielder as they are making efforts to convince Atletico Madrid and Lyon for the signatures of Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar respectively.

Meanwhile, Man United have given the hint that they are still in the summer transfer market to land players that will help improve their team for the season’s challenge.
