Man Utd Eyeing Move For New Juventus Signing

Published

on

Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a move for Juventus defender Merih Demiral.

This is according to the latest reports emanating from the media in the European nation of Turkey.

Manchester United have been linked with a lot of centre backs this summer and the Turkish defender is the latest player to be linked with a move to the Theatre of Dreams.

Merih Demiral has already made a move this summer after he joined Italian Serie A champions Juventus from fellow top flight side Sassuolo.

Juventus paid €18m to sign him earlier this month but he’s likely to struggle for first team opportunities especially after the Italian champions secured the transfer of Matthijs De Ligt from Dutch Eredivisie champions Ajax Amsterdam.

De Ligt sealed a big money move from Ajax to Juventus earlier this week.

Juventus will pay €75m for his transfer in addition to €10.5m in add-ons and bonuses.

The Italians will pay a total of €85.5m, making him the third most expensive player in the history of the club behind the duo of Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Matthijs De Ligt is the second most expensive defender in the history of world football behind Liverpool star Virgil Van Dijk.

Diogo Dalot

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that young Portuguese right-back Diogo Dalot will miss the next league game against Crystal Palace.

Manchester United will host Crystal Palace at the Theatre of Dreams in what’s one of the week three matches in the Premier League.

Solskjaer told MUTV that Diogo Dalot is still recovering from injury and he will miss out on the home game against the Eagles.

Diogo Dalot will miss the Crystal Palace game alongside fellow defenders Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

Manchester United will be hoping to return to winning ways against a Crystal Palace team that’s yet to record a win in the new league season.

Crystal Palace played out a goalless draw in their first game of the season in the Premier League before they were beaten 1-0 by newly promoted team Sheffield United.

The Eagles face a difficult trip to face Manchester United who have four points from their first two league games.

The corresponding fixture between Manchester United and Crystal Palace ended in a goalless draw.

Manchester United made a fast start at home to Chelsea as goals from Marcus Rashford (2), Anthony Martial and substitute Daniel James gave the Red Devils a 4-0 win before they went on to play a 1-1 draw at the home of Wolves.

Alex Iwobi

Everton manager Marco Silva has hinted that new signing Alex Iwobi could make his debut for the club in their away game at newly promoted outfit Aston Villa.

The Midlands club will host Everton in the first game of the week three fixtures in the Premier League at Villa Park on Friday night.

In his pre-match press conference on Thursday, Marco Silva said that Alex Iwobi could make his first appearance for the Toffees against Aston Villa though he was quick to point out that the Super Eagles of Nigeria player won’t start the game.

Marco Silva said Alex Iwobi is not fit to play 90 minutes at the moment largely due to his fitness levels.

Alex Iwobi joined Everton from North London giants Arsenal in a deal reported to be around £40m.

The 24-year-old left Arsenal after 15 years at the club.

The Nigerian player had been at Arsenal since the tender age of eight.

He came through the ranks at the North London club before making his first team debut in October 2015.

Alex Iwobi scored 15 goals during his time as an Arsenal player.

His exit was facilitated by the signing of Nicholas Pepe in a club-record deal worth around £72m.

Paul Pogba

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that star player Paul Pogba is stronger on the back of the racist abuse he has received.

Solskjaer spoke about Paul Pogba during his pre-match press conference on Friday morning ahead of the weekend’s league clash with Crystal Palace.

Manchester United play host to Crystal Palace in one of the week three Premier League games for this weekend.

On the issue of the racist abuse meted out to Pogba, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that the Frenchman is dealing with the situation and he can only come out of it as a stronger man.

Paul Pogba was racially abused on social media after the Frenchman missed a crucial penalty for the Red Devils.

His missed penalty ensured that Manchester United played out a 1-1 draw at Wolves when they could have easily won the game.

Pogba’s second-half penalty was saved by Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio some moments after Wolves equalized through the stunning strike from Portuguese international star Ruben Neves.

The Ruben Neves stunner canceled out the first-half strike from Manchester United star Anthony Martial with his second league goal in as many as games.

Manchester United lost their hundred percent record mainly due to the missed penalty from Pogba.

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has opened up on the competition with fellow attacker Marcus Rashford.

Anthony Martial spoke about his competition with Rashford in an interview with popular English news channel Sky Sports.

According to him, the training ground competition between them has given Manchester United an extra edge at the start of this season.

The exit of Romelu Lukaku this summer has left Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial as the first two strikers at Manchester United.

Belgian international Lukaku left Manchester United after two years which saw him score 42 goals in all competitions in the red and white jersey of the club.

The 26-year-old scored more goals than any other player at Manchester United during that period.

Lukaku signed for Inter Milan earlier this month in a deal worth £73.9m including £9.2m in add-ons.

The number nine jersey vacated by Lukaku has been taken by French international Martial who has shown good form at the start of the season with two goals in the first two league games.

He has the same number of goals as Marcus Rashford.

Anthony Martial scored in the first league game of the season, a 4-0 win over Chelsea before adding a second goal during the 1-1 draw at Wolves on Monday night.
