Premier League giants Manchester United have agreed to a deal in principle to sign highly-rated Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic this summer.

This is according to the publication from the Daily Mail which claimed that the Red Devils are closing in on a top midfield signing.

Lazio had earlier slammed an asking price of €80m on Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and it looks like Manchester United are ready to pay the said amount in their bid to sign a midfielder this summer.

Recent reports had claimed that Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is being readied as a potential replacement for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba who has been attracting serious interest from former club Juventus and Spanish club Real Madrid.

Former Spanish champions Real Madrid are still interested in signing Pogba who has been linked for the majority of this summer’s transfer window.

The Los Merengues will have to spend at least £150m in transfer fees to have a chance or signing the French World Cup winner.

Pogba has publicly talked about his desire to have a new experience but he could stay at the Theatre of Dreams for at least another season.

He has two years left on his current contract with the Red Devils who have the option of another year.

It was earlier alleged that Liverpool hierarchy is not interested in signing any new player to the team after the dominance they enjoyed this season to have won the English Premier League title with seven games to spare.

The reports claim that the Reds chiefs are confident that the current team led by manager Jurgen Klopp can still beat any competition in the coming season, although, this has never been the wish of the German manager.

In a major twist, manager Jurgen Klopp could be having his way with the latest reports that the club is already in advance talks with Bayern Munich for the signature of midfielder Thiago Alcantara, according to Sport.

It is claimed that Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of the Spanish midfielder right from his time at Borussia Dortmund and will seek to work with him at Anfield.

The German outfit have splashed a £31 million on the player but Liverpool are hoping they can beat it down in the negotiation.

Jurgen Klopp had already noted that clubs like Chelsea and Man United are doing enough to overtake in the coming season by signing new players. He, therefore, wishes to do the same despite winning the title this season.

Liverpool ended their 30 years wait by winning the EPL, a year after winning the Champions League.

English Premier League outfit Chelsea suffered a 3-2 defeat against West Ham in their North London derby and manager Frank Lampard is not taking it likely.

The defeat has now mounted pressure on the Blues who are on the verge of losing their Champions League spot to Man United.

Following the defeat, Chelsea are now placed in 4th position with just two points edge of Man United.

Frank Lampard has now been forced to make certain transfer decisions, one of which is to loan out goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Reports claim that Frank Lampard is unhappy with the inconsistency of the shot-stopper and would be sending him out on loan.

The Sun reports that Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla are keen to have Kepa on loan while Chelsea will continue to pay part of his £150,000 wage.

Howbeit, Kepa Arrizabalaga is rated among the best goalkeepers in England despite his bad form at the moment.

Sending him out without a better replacement could cost Chelsea another season while the 25-year-old may decide not to return to the Stamford Bridge should he find life in Spain interesting.

Chelsea are hoping for a Champions League qualification and will need the best to execute the outing.

Lionel Messi

Emerging reports from Spain hints that Barcelona star Lionel Messi will be leaving the Nou Camp at the end of the season.

It is claimed that the Argentina international is unhappy with the media reports that fingered him as the man behind the sack of the club manager Valverde in January.

This, according to the report has forced the World best player to call off contract extension negotiations with the Catalans as he will be seeking to leave.

It is also claimed that Messi is angry over the lack of quality in the Barcelona team, a reason that may force them to lose the La Liga title to rivals Real Madrid.

This development has placed English Premier League clubs on alert as they will be seeking to land the star player.

Supposedly, clubs like Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool will not mind the idea of Lionel Messi in their team in the coming season.

However, Man City could have the advantage of the relationship between manager Pep Guardiola and the Argentine international. It is believed that Messi will seek to work with his former boss again.

Meanwhile, talks about Messi’s destination have not been made public as it is expected that Barcelona will hold talks with him to pacify and calm the situation.

Notwithstanding, Messi would be shaming critics who have come after him severally for not trying other leagues and teams like his rival, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Emerging reports reveal that Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte is already making plans to snap up Emerson Palmieri from Chelsea with discussions between the two clubs already ongoing.

The Blues defender has not been a regular at Chelsea having had just 13 starts this season because he has not been favoured by manager Frank Lampard.

Emerson Palmieri has already hinted he could return to the Italian Serie A outfit after finding life uneasy in England with a reunion with Italian boss, Antonio Conte possible.

Conte is a big fan of the Chelsea defender and we will not forget that the Italian boss signed him to Chelsea in 2018 for a fee of £18 million. There are could still be a reunion between them.

The Inter Milan boss has been making efforts to rebuild the team and beat off competition from Juventus. He has, therefore, been busy with buys especially after securing Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, and Christian Eriksen. He seems not to be stopping at that.

Should Antonio Conte succeed with a deal for Emerson Palmieri, he will be the second from Chelsea after Nigerian international Victor Moses. This will help him have familiar faces at the club to make the building of the team easy.

Paul Pogba

There seems to be some good news coming from Man United after ESPN reports that Paul Pogba is now happy at the club and will be ready to extend his contract anytime soon.

The France international returned to the Old Trafford from Italian Serie A outfit Juventus in a deal worth £89.3 million in 2016, with the deal expected to end in 2021.

Of course, talks of a new deal would be starting anytime soon and there is no need for worries with ESPN confirming that the World Cup winner will be willing to extend his deal.

It would be recalled that the early years of Paul Pogba at Man United was filled with controversies and the reign of former manager Jose Mourinho was the height of it. The midfielder had made his wish to leave known, citing Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid as his preferred destination because of manager Zinedine Zidane.

However, the coming of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has changed everything as they have built a good working relationship both on and off the pitch. Pogba is reportedly happy with the development and no longer interested in a move away from the club. Howbeit, Pogba is likely to remain at the Old Trafford much longer with the hope of winning titles.

EPL: Arsenal to meet £70m target tomorrow

Adama Traore

North London outfit Arsenal will be meeting their long term target Adama Traore but not on the discussion table as usual. They will be meeting on the pitch when the Gunners file out against his Wolverhampton Wanders side in the English Premier League match on Saturday, July 4, 2020.

The Gunners will only hope to see a massive win to stand the chance of playing in the Europa League next season but more to it is that they will be served the opportunity to access their target, in what will look like a trial for the player.

Daily Mirror had reported that the Gunners were keen on the winger in April but a bid has not been tabled for the player. The winger already has a price tag of £70 million for any suitor.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed the threat the player will pose to his team, stressing that he has got incredible potential especially when he gets the ball on time which makes stopping him difficult.

In case the Gunners become convince about Traore’s quality, the challenge in securing his signature will be his price tag because the Gunners will not be able to meet with such a demand unless a negotiation is done.

However, Arsenal still have Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Alexandre Lacazette to boast of in their attack which makes Traore an option and not a necessity.

EPL: Klopp reveals three things that must happen after City defeat

Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool are English Premier League current champions and nothing at the moment can change it, not even the 4-0 defeat they suffered against Man City on Thursday night at Etihad.

No thanks to the brace by Kevin De Bruyne and gaols by Phil Foden and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain that caused heavy pain on the Reds team.

It was obvious that Liverpool were disappointed in the defeat and manager Jurgen Klopp could not hide his feelings when he said the result wasn’t expected. However, he noted that certain things will now happen after the defeat, stressing that his team will surely see to that.

Firstly, he stated that results are important and his side will see that they win their remaining six games to the end of the season. According to him, the remaining games are the reason why his team has been training hard despite winning the title.

Secondly, there is a bid to beat the 100 record points already set by Man City in previous seasons to be able to gain more pride but Jurgen Klopp stressed that they will not be forcing that to happen. Liverpool now have 86 points which means they can still earn 100 points before the end of the season.

Lastly, Klopp seems to be planning some form of revenge when he said “we will see next season”, meaning he is already looking forward to another meeting between the two clubs.

Man United’s fate in the English Premier League has been decided by Harry Redknapp but it is left to the Red Devils to accept or not and largely dependent on their performance on the pitch.

The Red Devils enjoyed a 3-0 win in their last game, making it 15 games unbeaten across all competitions.

According to Harry Redknapp, the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team can still finish third this season ahead of Chelsea and Leicester City, going by their recent form.

United are now 5th in the EPL table with 52 points after 32 games making them two points behind Chelsea.

Harry Redknapp noted while speaking on MUTV that Leicester City have started struggling and same applies to Chelsea while United are in fine form, looking stronger by each game.

Man United signing Bruno Fernandes has been praised for helping to improve the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team by stabilizing the midfield and connecting well with players like Paul Pogba.

Should Man United continue in their fine form with the six games left, Harry Redknapp’s prediction will just be on point.

Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over at the Old Tradford, he has been making efforts to prove a point with a title win but that is yet to happen, a qualification to the Champions League will be helpful to him.
