Declan Rice

Three-time European champions Manchester United have received a big transfer boost in their pursuit of highly rated West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice.

Manchester United are one of several clubs keen on a deal for the recently capped Three Lions of England international.

Declan Rice had earlier played three non-competitive games for the Republic of Ireland before he decided to switch his international allegiance to England.

The 20-year-old made his England debut during the Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro which the Three Lions won 5-1 away from home.

The Montenegro game was one of the numerous highlights of a superb season for Declan Rice who broke into the West Ham United team last season.

Manchester United have received a big transfer boost in the chase for his signature after the West Ham United manager said that he’s not sure whether the player will be at the club next season.

According to Manuel Pellegrini, Declan Rice has a lot of potentials and it would be difficult for the Hammers to hang on to him beyond this summer.

Apart from Manchester United, Rice has also been touted as a possible transfer addition to the playing squad at both Manchester City and Chelsea.

Declan Rice was a Chelsea player before he was released at the age of 14.

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.

Arsenal defender Julio Pleguezuelo has signed for Dutch Eredivisie club FC Twente following the expiration of his contract with the Gunners.

His transfer to FC Twente was confirmed by the Dutch club.

The 22-year-old has signed a two-year contract with FC Twente with the option of another year.

Spanish defender Julio Pleguezuelo joins FC Twente after his Arsenal contract ended this summer.

Julio Pleguezuelo spent two years at the famed La Masia Academy before signing for Arsenal in 2013.

The Spaniard spent six years in North London before moving to FC Twente.

He didn’t make any single appearance in the Premier League.

His only outing for the Arsenal senior team came during the 2-1 win over League One side Blackpool in the Carabao Cup earlier this season.

Julio Pleguezuelo captained the Arsenal youth teams during his time with the Gunners and also spent some time in Spain with clubs like Mallorca and Gimnastic de Terragona.

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.

The Gunners conceded 51 goals in just 38 games in the Premier League.

United set to land former Madrid target, talks have reached advanced stage

It is reported that the English Premier League outfit Man United are close to agreeing on a deal to secure the signature of Fluminense striker Pedro as the summer transfer window is set to be opened.

The Reds Devils boss is keen to land new players as he hopes to build a new and formidable team and Pedro has been identified as one.

Pedro was earlier on the radar of Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid and was close to joining them but the deal collapsed because he suffered a cruciate ligament injury which kept him sidelined for seven months.

The latest report claims that Man United are also in the race for the star player and have approached an official of the South American outfit with talks already ongoing.

A number of players are likely to leave the Old Trafford once the summer transfer window is opened as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not be willing to work with them anymore.

He complained about their lack of commitment to the club and their failure to sacrifice for the team, a development that contributed to why the Red Devils did not secure qualification to the Champions League as they finished sixth on the log.

However, Real Madrid is willing to pay the sum of €25 million (£22m) for Pedro which means the same amount could be expected from the Red Devils.

Chelsea to pay £32 for this player who is not affected by ban

Timothy Aiyeku

Published

on

The West London outfit Chelsea have been handed a transfer ban that will stop them from registering new players for the next two transfer windows.

The Blues team went against the FIFA rule on signing foreign minors and that has attracted the ban.

This, therefore, means the West London outfit will not be able to register any new player as such, having new faces in the coming season aside American star Christian Pulisic whose deal has already been completed before the ban was placed.

However, Chelsea have got one Real Madrid player, Mateo Kovacic who could be available for them despite the transfer ban to bring in before the start of the season.

Mateo Kovacic registered as a loan player after spending some time at the Stamford Bridge and that is the only saving grace the Blues have got because they have an option of a permanent deal which is now being considered for activation.

However, in very clear terms, a permanent deal for Kovacic will not be affected by the FIFA ban that prevents Chelsea from signing players for the next two transfer windows.

Meanwhile, Mateo Kovacic’s performance within his one-year loan spell at the Stamford Bridge remains an impressive one after playing 32 times in the Premier League.

The biggest shocking deal could be set to happen

gareth bale

There are fears according to emerging reports that Real Madrid forward and Wales international Gareth Bale could be heading to the English Premier League runner up Liverpool as soon as the summer transfer window is opened.

Gareth Bale has been linked away from the Bernabeu with claims that he would not be able to work under manager Zinedine Zidane as a result of the sour relationship between them.

According to the director of OKDiario, Eduardo Inda, Gareth Bale seems to be tired of life at the Spanish capital as he has resulted in playing golf these days with Real Madrid also looking to offload him in the summer window.

The former Tottenham star was, therefore, linked with a move to Man United with claims that he would be a part of the rebuilding process by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but there could be a big twist with Liverpool already mentioned.

The report making rounds remains one of the most unbelievable, knowing that Liverpool have got one of the best attack lines with Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah who are all in good form.

More so, one of the reasons why manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted on keeping the players together is because of the assurance that the trio will not be leaving at the end of the season but the addition of Gareth Bale would not be a bad idea.
