Three-time European champions Manchester United have made Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly their number one transfer target ahead of the resumption of the transfer window this summer.

The new development was confirmed by the publication from the Daily Mirror which revealed that the Senegalese international is their top transfer target this summer.

Kalidou Koulibaly is a key player for Napoli and the Italian Serie A giants are not willing to let him leave the club this summer but Manchester United are ready to pay a world-record fee for him.

Senegalese defender Koulibaly is regarded as one of the best three centre backs on the world football stage alongside the likes of Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool) and Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid).

Dutch international Van Dijk is the most expensive centre back in the history of world football after the Reds splashed the whopping sum of £75m to secure his transfer from Southampton during last year’s winter transfer window.

European clubs like Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Chelsea and Barcelona have previously expressed their interest in Koulibaly.

According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants a quality defender like the aforementioned Koulibaly in addition to a new right-back, a new midfielder and a new forward.

It has been hinted, according to media reports that the English Premier League outfit Liverpool are set to confirm their first summer transfer sighing after claims that they have an agreement with young Polish shot stopper Jakub Ojrzynski.

This might not be the signing the Reds fans have been waiting for but it is claimed in an exclusive story covered by Football Insider that the Merseyside outfit have already agreed on personal terms with the 16-year-old as they have been convinced with his quality for the future.

It has been reported that the Reds team were not alone in the chase of Jakub Ojrzynski as Man United, Juventus and Valencia were also keen on his signature after sending scouts to watch the teenager.

The report adds that Jakub Ojrzynski will cost the Reds team the sum of £200,000 and it is already being argued to be well under the value of the 16-year-old.

However, having seen the quality in Brazilian international Alisson Becker, Liverpool have now acknowledged the importance of having a good stopper in the middle of the post.

Alison Becker has been able to bring in a level of balance in the manager Jurgen Klopp’s defence which resulted in a number of clean sheets in the last campaign.

Julian Brandt

The English Premier League outfit Liverpool fans are not happy about the latest development that the club’s major target Julian Brandt has left the German Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen to join Borussia Dortmund.

The Reds have been on the chase of Julian Brandt since the last January winter transfer window but that is now over as he has been confirmed to be a Borussia Dortmund player for the sum of £22 million, a fee that can be afforded by the manager Jurgen Klopp team.

It would be recalled that the Merseyside outfit came close to securing the signature of Julian Brandt in 2017 but the deal failed to work through until they captured the Egyptian international Mohamed Salah from the Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma.

However, the fans have approached social media to express their disappointment in the club for allowing most of their top targets sign for other teams.

One of the fans noted that same Borussia Dortmund captured Nico Schultz, Thorgan Hazard and now Julian Brandt.

Meanwhile, this might not be a surprise to some of the fans after learning manager Jurgen Klopp statement that he would not want to distract his team by bringing in big names in the summer transfer window.

No Deal!!! Liverpool player going nowhere, says he is still at Anfield

on

The English Premier League outfit Liverpool young goalkeeper Shamal George has refuted claims that he is leaving the Anfield as he stated that he is still a Reds’ player ahead of the season.

Shamal George is currently with the youth team and hoping that he gets an opportunity to be in the first team anytime soon as he reflects on how the season went for him on his social media page.

There were fears that he could leave the club, knowing that he is of big quality and has a bright future but that has been dismissed despite claims that he already has some suitors who are seeking for his signature.

Shamal George is only 21 years old but he has been able to meet up with the U23 team and that has been his level of experience, especially since he has had loan spells with Tranmere Rovers and Carlisle United in the past.

Should Shamal George eventually break into the first team, he would be faced with the challenge of beating the competition from Brazilian international Alisson Becker who has helped to stabilize the Reds defence.

Liverpool suffered disappointment in the 2017/2018 season as a result of poor goalkeeping but that has been corrected by Alisson Becker.

Harry Wilson

The Merseyside outfit have been told that Harry Wilson remains the secret weapon they need to acquire to be able to compete for the English Premier League in the coming season.

The Reds team missed out of the title with just a point behind champions, Man City and that was just enough to end their dream of breaking the deadlock of not winning the domestic league since 1989.

Harry Wilson has been the revelation this season in the manager Frank Lampard’s team as he is currently on loan with Championship side, Derby County.

The Wales international was able to deliver 18 goals in one season and provided six assists to help his team secure a playoff spot for a return to the English Premier league.

Harry Wilson’s performance has caught the attention of a number of Liverpool fans with the hope that he would be asked to return to the club for a first team football.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has been saved by the fact that he would not need to pay any fee to land Harry Wilson because he remains a Liverpool player from his youth age.

Harry Wilson has been tipped to be the next Sadio Mane at the Anfield and it would not be a bad idea for Harry Wilson to add to the strength of the Liverpool attack.

Jasper Cillessen

Barcelona shot stopper Jasper Cillessen has agreed to personal terms with Portuguese giants Benfica according to the publication from Goal.

Benfica have reached an agreement with Jasper Cillessen but Barcelona are still holding out for more money for his transfer.

Benfica value him at around €15m but Barcelona is holding out for €25m.

Dutch international Cillessen wants to leave Spanish champions Barcelona this summer after failing to usurp German shot stopper Marc Andre Ter Stegen as the first choice goalkeeper at the Nou Camp.

The 30-year-old has previously been linked with a move to Premier League giants Manchester United as a potential replacement for David De Gea if the Spaniard decides to leave the Old Trafford this summer.

De Gea has one year left on his current deal with the Red Devils.

Manchester United will have to look elsewhere for a replacement if De Gea leaves the club with Benfica closing in on a summer move for the former Ajax Amsterdam goalkeeper.

Jasper Cillesen has made just five league appearances during his three-year spell at Barcelona following his move from Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam and he’s keen to leave the club in search of more first team opportunities.

In total, the ex-Ajax Amsterdam goalkeeper has made ten appearances for Barcelona in all competitions this season.

Premier League giants Manchester United have concluded plans to step up their interest in Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff.

This is according to widespread reports coming out of the media in the United Kingdom.

Manchester United have been attracted to the quality shown by Sean Longstaff after his impressive debut season for the Newcastle United first team.

According to the specific publication from the Daily Telegraph, Manchester United will make an official bid for the young midfielder in the next 48hrs.

Newcastle United are reluctant to sell Sean Longstaff and they have debunked the transfer rumours linking him with a move to Manchester United according to recent reports.

Sean Longstaff has been a hit at Newcastle United after he broke into the first team this season.

He formed a potent central midfield partnership with Isaac Hayden in the Newcastle United midfield before he suffered a serious knee injury.

Sean Longstaff played nine league games for the Magpies and he’s presently rated £25m.

The Newcastle United Academy graduate previously spent loan spells at Scottish club Kilmarnock and English League One outfit Blackpool before making his first team debut in the Premier League.

Manchester United are expected to bolster their midfield options this summer ahead of the new season in August and Sean Longstaff could be a perfect candidate for the job.

Juan Mata

Premier League club Newcastle United are the latest team to show an interest in signing Manchester United playmaker Juan Manuel Mata.

According to The Sun, Newcastle United want to sign Mata this summer as they try to bolster their squad ahead of the new Premier League campaign billed to start on the 9th of August.

It was also revealed that a move for Spanish international Mata will be dependent on whether compatriot Rafael Benitez stays on as the Newcastle United manager.

Benitez is in talks with Newcastle United over a new contract.

His current Newcastle United contract expires this summer.

Juan Manuel Mata is also in the same situation as his Manchester United contract expires this summer.

The former Chelsea player joined Manchester United from Chelsea in January 2014 after the Blues paid around £37.1m for his transfer.

Recent reportes claimed that Manchester United have offered him an improved contract offer in their quest to extend his stay at Old Trafford beyond this summer.

Apart from Newcastle United, Mata has also been linked with fellow Premier League club Arsenal.

Gunners boss Unai Emery worked with Mata while he was at Spanish La Liga club Valencia.

Spanish champions Barcelona are also interested in a free transfer move for Mata.

Nicolo Barella

It has been revealed that West London outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was left disappointed after Cagliari star midfielder Nicolo Barella turned down the opportunity to join the Stamford Bridge in the last January winter transfer window.

Nicolo Barella was reportedly available for a move to the Stamford Bridge with the Italian Serie A side willing to let him leave but the move was blocked by the player on claims that he wants to remain in the country because of his family.

It was expected that Nicolo Barella joins the club as a replacement for France international Cesc Fabregas who left the club to join French Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco.

However, manager Maurizio Sarri could still be interested in a move for Nicolo Barella but they will again be stopped by the transfer ban on the team after falling short of FIFA rules.

It is also unclear if Nicolo Barella is still willing to leave Italy as he could still hold the excuse of wanting to be with his family.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have got France international N’Golo Kante, Jorginho at the midfield while there are possibilities of adding up Mateo Kovacic who is on loan from Spanish La Liga side Real Madrid.

sarri

It has been suggested that there is a possibility of manager Maurizio Sarri moving away from the West London outfit Chelsea to join the Italian Serie A champions Juventus ahead of the coming season.

There are speculations that the Italian boss could be sacked by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich as he is not convinced about his ability to deliver success while his relationship with the fans remains a major concern.

It is therefore claimed that Roman Abramovich will wait for the outcome of the Europa League finals before making a decision on the future of the former Napoli boss.

However, Maurizio Sarri has already been linked with a return to Italy as he is reportedly wanted by a number of clubs in the Serie A including AS Roma and Juventus.

Serie A champions Juventus’ manager Allegri has already declared his decision to leave the club and manager Maurizio is being linked with a switch which he has dismissed but there are feelers that the move could still happen if he lose his job with the Blues team.

It is therefore claimed that Maurizio Sarri has met with the criteria needed at the Old Lady and is tipped to succeed if handed the job but that will not happen should Chelsea decide to keep him for the coming season.

Although the performance of the Blues team was not convincing in the concluding season the Italian boss has managed to help the Blues team return to Champions League with a top-four finish.

The Spaniard was sent out on loan to the two aforementioned Spanish sides.

Despite the average defensive showing from Arsenal during the just concluded Premier League season, Julio Pleguezuelo didn’t get his chance to shine for the Gunners in the league.
