Former United Manager Turned Down Offers From Ligue 1 Amid Solskjaer’s Uncertainty

Jose Mourinho

Former Manchester United manager José Mourinho has turned down the chance to become Lyon’s manager as he reportedly hopes to return to England.

The controversial Portuguese manager had a fairly successful career during his two-year spell at Old Trafford, though, he was eventually sacked after a run of poor results last season.

Since his dismissal from his position as United manager last December, the former Chelsea manager is without a club despite numerous clubs vying for his services.

According to France-based media outlet RMC Sport, the 56-year-old does not see a future in Ligue 1, hence, he decided to ignore Lyon’s offer.

As it stands, the former Real Madrid manager will have to be more patient if he must get a chance to manage any top team in England.

It is obvious he won’t be returning to Old Trafford despite the uncertainty surrounding the club’s managerial position.

Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and City’s managers are very much active as they’re doing fine in their respective clubs.

However, reports are linking him with a move to Tottenham following the club’s recent run of unfavorable results.

Pochettino’s men are far from convincing so far and the Argentine’s future at North London remains unsettled due to reports linking him with a move to Old Trafford.

We will keep our fingers crossed and monitor how things turn out for Mourinho in his quest for a new Premier League managerial post.

Chelsea have increased the African contingent on their payroll following the capture of Senegalese international shot stopper Edouard Mendy.

The 28-year-old becomes the eighth signing of the summer for Chelsea after the announcement was made on Thursday.

Edouard Mendy signs for the Blues from French team Rennes after the two clubs reached an agreement of £22m in transfer fees for his services.

He has signed a five-year contract until the summer of 2025.

Edouard Mendy is now expected to become the first choice goalkeeper ahead of the troubled Kepa Arrizabalaga who has struggled for form and confidence for the better part of the last one year.

The Senegalese goalkeeper could make his first appearance with the club at the weekend as Chelsea travel to the Midlands to take on Premier League newcomers West Bromwich Albion.

Chelsea had previously signed free agents Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr in this transfer window.

Other signings include Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.

With the signing of the aforementioned Mendy, Chelsea could send Kepa Arrizabalaga on loan as per the latest reports in the media.

Kepa Arrizabalaga became the most expensive goalkeeper in world football when Chelsea activated his £71m release clause at La Liga club Athletic Bilbao two years ago.

His loss of confidence has seen him produce howlers consistently.

Liverpool Are Confident

Arsenal have been linked with a shock transfer swoop on one of their top four rivals between now and the end of the transfer window.

Sky Sports revealed that the Gunners are prepared to make another transfer assault on London rivals Chelsea by signing their Italian international Jorginho.

Arsenal have signed two players from Chelsea in the last two summer transfer windows and they could make it three with the transfer of Jorginho.

The Gunners signed Brazilian centre back David Luiz from Chelsea in an £8m deal last summer before completing a free transfer move for fellow Brazilian Willian this summer.

The report via Sky Sports said that the Gunners are eyeing Jorginho as a possible replacement for the outgoing Lucas Torreira.

Uruguayan international Torreira is closing in on a loan move to Atletico Madrid in the Spanish league though the club is yet to reach an agreement with the Gunners.

Arsenal want an obligation to buy at the end of the loan deal for Lucas Torreira, while Atletico Madrid are only keen to put option to buy the player when his proposed loan contract ends.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was the assistant manager to Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola when the Citizens tried to sign Jorginho from Italian club Napoli in 2018 and he has retained that interest in the player.

There are indications that Man United and Chelsea could do some players business before the end of this summer transfer window

This is after it was reported that the West London outfit have placed four of their players on sale and the Red Devils are being linked with two of the players.

It is reported by various media outlets that the Blues have put France international N’Golo Kante, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger, and Callum Hudson-Odoi for sale this season.

According to Daily Express, more to the reason that these players are not in the plans of the club for this season, manager Frank Lampard is keen on the signature of Declan Rice and he must sell to be able to land him.

One player that is being monitored by the Red Devils, according to reports is Callum Hudson-Odoi and Manchester Evening News scouting writer David Alexander Hughes is of the opinion that the winger can be the ideal target for the Man United.

The fact that Man United are keen on a winger is not hidden from the public space and that gives Callum Hudson-Odoi the chance to having a stay in England as the Red Devils top target Jadon Sancho cannot be brought to the Old Trafford this summer window.

According to the Daily Mail, Villa want to bolster their squad in central midfield and the Chelsea duo of Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have been targeted.

It was revealed that Aston Villa want a loan deal for either of the two England internationals who have found it hard to feature in the Chelsea XI this season.

The former European champions have signed goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez in a £20m deal this season, while the duo of Matty Cash and Ollie Watkins have joined from Nottingham Forest and Brentford respectively.

Watkins has signed for Villa in a club-record deal worth an initial fee of £28m and the club is keen to add either Barkley or Loftus-Cheek.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is yet to feature for Chelsea since being substituted during half-time of the opening game at Brighton which the Blues won 3-1.

Merseyside giants Everton have shifted their attention to £22.5m Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo after the move to sign Fikayo Tomori from Chelsea stalled.

The Toffees were thought to be closing in on a loan deal for Chelsea centre back Tomori earlier this month but that transfer has stalled in the past days paving the way for the club to pursue other defensive targets.

Fikayo Tomori is now expected to stay at Chelsea to fight for his place in the team. The Nigerian-born England international came on as a second half substitute over the weekend as his team suffered their first league defeat of the season.

Tomori and Chelsea were beaten 2-0 at home by Liverpool who had a man advantage for the larger part of the game after Danish international Fikayo Tomori was sent off towards the end of the first half.

Kai Havertz was sacrificed as Fikayo Tomori replaced the new signing to fill the centre back vacuum left by Andreas Christensen.

Everton are desperate to sign a new central defender in this transfer window and 20-year-old Todibo is the new target though the Merseysiders will have to contend with Wolves who are also interested in the young French player.

Chelsea Set For Huge Transfer Boost As PSG Eye £40m Bid For Player

Chelsea are set to receive a big transfer boost after reports claimed that French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have initiated talks in order to sign midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko in a deal that could be around £41m.

As per the reports from French publication Le 10 Sport, the Champions League finalists are eyeing a move for the Frenchman.

Tiemoue Bakayoko has spent the last two seasons away from parent club Chelsea, and he’s not in manager Frank Lampard’s plans for this season.

He spent the penultimate season on loan at Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan before being farmed out on loan to French club AS Monaco last term.

French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) want to sign a new central midfielder this summer, and Tiemoue Bakayoko is the man they have turned to.

PSG tried to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Italian team Lazio earlier this summer before they were prized out of a move for the Serbian international and that has prompted the club to turn to the aforementioned Bakayoko.

The new transfer development is a big boost to Chelsea who could use the funds from the transfer for top midfield target Declan Rice of West Ham United.

Chelsea will need £73m to sign former player Rice from the Hammers and Bakayoko’s potential transfer to PSG could provide part of the money.
