Mauro Icardi

Premier League giants Manchester United are targeting a move for Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi this summer according to the latest reports coming out of the British media.

The Red Devils have serious doubt over the future of star striker Romelu Lukaku at the club and they are said to be interested in Mauro Icardi as a possible replacement for the Belgian international.

According to the specific publication from the Daily Express, Manchester United want to replace Lukaku with Icardi who has previously been linked with Chelsea.

Romelu Lukaku has already talked about the possibility of moving from the Premier League to the Italian Serie A with Inter Milan keen to sign him.

Newly appointed Nerazzurri manager Antonio Conte has made Lukaku his top target in this transfer window though Inter Milan will have to pay a lot of money to secure his transfer from Manchester United.

Conte tried to sign Romelu Lukaku while he was the Chelsea manager in 2017 but the former Blues striker opted for a move to Old Trafford.

He has been at Manchester United since then.

Lukaku has scored 42 goals for Manchester United since his move to the club two years ago.

£60m Icardi is surplus to requirements at Inter Milan under the new Antonio Conte dispensation and he could be a major transfer target for the Red Devils.

Four-man Managerial Shorlist Revealed At Man United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United have drawn up a four-man managerial shortlist in the event that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is booted out of his job.

Solskjaer has come under serious pressure in recent days but the word out of Old Trafford is that Manchester United bosses still believe that the club legend has what it takes to turn things around after a difficult week.

Senior Manchester United bosses want to back him with new players but that could change if results continue to dwindle.

Manchester United have lost their last two league games against arch-rivals Liverpool and Burnley and that has seen their charge for a top-four place fade.

Those two results came on the back of the injury suffered by Marcus Rashford who’s the leading goalscorer in the team with 19 goals in all competitions.

Rashford will not return to action until two months’ time.

For now, Manchester United have a four-man shortlist of managers to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if the club pulled the trigger.

According to The Times, Ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino heads that list alongside current England national team boss Gareth Southgate.

RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann is also on the shortlist as well as Paris Saint Germain (PSG) manager Thomas Tuchel.

Mino Raiola has again hinted that his client Paul Pogba could leave Manchester United this summer in his latest interview as monitored by the Daily Express.

The Frenchman suffered that injury on Matchday Four in August.

He tried to come back from the ankle issue on two occasions but it didn’t work out on both occasions thereby prompting him to undergo surgery earlier this year.

Inter Milan midfielder Mattias Vecino won’t be joining Premier League giants Manchester United before the winter transfer window ends this month according to Duncan Castles.

The experienced journalist told Transfer Window Podcast that Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte wants to keep the Uruguayan international at the club amidst the interest from Manchester United.

Edinson Cavani

Sunday, January 26

West London giants Chelsea have been boosted with the news that Premier League rivals Manchester United have been rebuffed in their bid to sign Edinson Cavani from French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Both Chelsea and Manchester United want to sign a new striker before the January window closes this week and Edinson Cavani is a person of interest for the two English clubs.

According to Foot Mercato, Manchester United had a big salary offer turned down by Cavani who sees Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid as his preferred team if he leaves PSG this month.

Manchester United were said to have offered him around €10m annual salary which was rejected by the Uruguayan international star.

The Red Devils are interested in Edinson Cavani as the man to replace topscorer Marcus Rashford after the Academy graduate was struck down by a serious back injury.

Chelsea had a loan offer for Cavani thrown out by the player and his entourage earlier this month.

Edinson Cavani favors a move to Atletico Madrid who are in desperate need of a striker after the injury to Diego Costa.

Atletico Madrid offered him a two-and-a-half-year deal but they are yet to agree on a fee with PSG for him having had the first offer of €10m turned down by the French giants.

Europa League holders Chelsea have reportedly made an enquiry for one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League over the last two seasons.

Crystal Palace shot-stopper Vicente Guaita signed for the Eagles at the start of the last campaign following his transfer from Spanish La Liga side Getafe and he has proven to be one of the best goalkeepers in the English top flight.

The 33-year-old goalkeeper is a target for both Manchester City and Chelsea as reported by Football London.

The interest of Chelsea in Vicente Guaita was first reported by Spanish newspaper AS who disclosed that the Spanish shot-stopper has showed his quality in the Premier League in the last 18 months and that has attracted the Blues to his signing.

Vicente Guaita is the second goalkeeper to be linked with Chelsea in the past few days after England and Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope.

The links to Premier League goalkeepers have cast doubt on the future of Kepa Arrizabalaga at Chelsea following his series of errors at the club this season.

Kepa Arrizabalaga became the most expensive goalkeeper in history after Chelsea splashed over £71m on his transfer from Athletic Bilbao at the start of the last campaign.
