Real Madrid Close To Signing Paul Pogba




paul pogba

Manchester United could fail to prevent Madrid from luring Paul Pogba to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in the January window following Zidane’s ‘personal meeting’ with his countryman during the international break.

The 26-year-old midfielder has been a longtime target for the Real Madrid gaffer but all his efforts to have the player under his watch have been fruitless.

Zidane was close to signing Pogba in the summer following Mino Raiola’s transfer comments on the player’s future at Old Trafford but United were active enough to block every negotiation from materializing.

Considering the latest discussion between the two Frenchmen, it won’t be out of place to suggest that Pogba’s days at Old Trafford are numbered and it could come to an abrupt end in January.

He still has two years left on his contract with the Red Devils but could be released by United as long as Solskjaer finds his replacement.

Meanwhile, the World Cup winner won’t be available for selection against Liverpool on Sunday due to an ankle injury which has kept him out of action for several weeks.

Scott mcTominay and —probably — Nemanja Matic could be given the nod to start alongside Juan Mata or Fred at the middle of the pitch.

Krzysztof Piatek

Three-time European champions Manchester United have reportedly opened talks over the possibility of signing AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek.

According to The Athletic, Manchester United have contacted the Italians over the loan signing of the Polish international player.

The Red Devils have been informed that AC Milan are open to a loan deal for Piatek but it has come with the obligation to sign him for £30m at the end of the proposed short-term loan deal this summer.

Piatek has been pushed down the central striker pecking order at AC Milan this month following the arrival of former club striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Polish striker has struggled for form this season and he has scored just five goals in 19 games for the Rossoneri in all competitions this term.

38-year-old AC Milan legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic has returned to the club to take his central striker role.

Ibrahimovic is back in Italy after his contract with Major League Soccer (MLS) club LA Galaxy ended last month.

Manchester United have turned to Piatek after the long-term injury to topscorer Marcus Rashford who has scored 19 goals plus five assists this season.

The Red Devils have been blunt in attack since the England international suffered a back injury.

EPL: What Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Said About Signing New Players

Amuda Segun




Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has assured Manchester United supporters that the club is working on the signing of new players before the end of this month’s transfer window.

Solskjaer talked about transfers during his post-match press conference after the disappointing 2-0 loss to Burnley at home on Wednesday night.

Burnley won at Manchester United for the first time in almost five decades as the Red Devils failed to close the gap on fourth place.

Manchester United stay in fifth place and are now six points adrift of Chelsea who occupy the last Champions League place.

A win over Burnley would have reduced the gap to Chelsea to just three points.

Manchester United were punished for their wastefulness in front of goal during the Burnley game as the likes of Anthony Martial and Juan Manuel Mata wasted several opportunities to score the first goal of the game before Chris Woods struck the first goal of the game with seven first-half minutes left to play.

Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez added a second goal shortly after the halftime interval to wrap up the points for his team.

It was an historic win for Sean Dyche and his Burnley players who battled hard for the Clarets’ first win at Manchester United since 1962.

Amuda Segun



Manchester United want to sign two players between now and the end of this January winter window according to the Manchester Evening News (MEN).

It was revealed that the Manchester United players have been told that the club wants to sign a midfielder and a striker before the transfer window shuts on January 31.

Manchester United have been decimated by injuries and it is a no brainer for the club to strengthen their squad this month especially if they want to meet their least target for this season which is to qualify for the Champions League next season after they missed out on the competition this season.

The Red Devils were hit by injuries to key players at the end of last month after Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay were ruled out for several weeks.

Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay are both not expected back until mid-February at least.

Manchester United were then dealt another major injury blow with the serious back problem sustained by Marcus Rashford during the Wolves game in the FA Cup.

Marcus Rashford will miss the next two months and his impact has been missed in the last two league games which ended in defeats for the Old Trafford outfit.

John McGinn

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has told club officials to sign highly-rated Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn.

Premier League legend Kevin Philips disclosed the position of Sir Alex Ferguson on John McGinn in a chat with Football Insider.

Kevin Philips played for clubs like Sunderland and Birmingham City with distinction while he was in the Premier League.

According to him, Sir Alex Ferguson has told club officials to sign the Aston Villa player who’s presently out injured.

John McGinn suffered ankle ligament damage at the end of last year and he’s not expected back in action until March meaning that a move to Manchester United this month is highly unlikely until the summer at least.

The Scottish international was linked with a £50m transfer to Manchester United last summer shortly after he helped his team to secure Premier League promotion via the Championship.

Manchester United have been short in midfield this season especially after two key midfielders suffered long-term injuries and that prompted the pursuit of Bruno Fernandes.

The Red Devils are finding it hard to agree a deal with Sporting Lisbon for him.

The 25-year-old is eager to leave Sporting Lisbon for Manchester United this month.

Edinson Cavani

Chelsea have contacted Paris Saint Germain (PSG) striker Edinson Cavani over a loan move before the end of the present winter transfer window.

This is according to the report from Goal which stated that the Blues want to sign him on loan from his French club though Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid are favorites to sign him.

Chelsea are hoping to get more competition for central striker Tammy Abraham in that department as club manager Frank Lampard is not convinced by the present options of Michy Batshuayi and French World Cup winner Olivier Giroud.

Frenchman Giroud was thought to be closing on a transfer to Italian Serie A title challengers Inter Milan but that move appears to have stalled with the Italians now searching for alternatives.

Recent reports from Italy claimed that Inter Milan have opted to sign Fernando Llorente from Napoli after failing to lure Giroud from Chelsea.

For Edinson Cavani, PSG have already turned down a bid of €10m from Atletico Madrid for him.

Atletico Madrid have offered him a two-and-a-half-year deal until 2022 but the Spaniards still need to agree on a fee with PSG.

They are favorites ahead of Chelsea after manager Diego Simeone outlined his plans for him.

EPL: Arsenal To Triple Player Salary Amidst Transfer Scare

Amuda Segun



According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal have concluded plans to triple the salary of sensational attacker Gabriel Martinelli to ward off the interest of the Spanish club Real Madrid.

Real Madrid are said to be weighing up a £50m move for the young Arsenal player who has a long-term contract at the Emirates Stadium until 2024.

Gabriel Martinelli has been a revelation for the Gunners this season since his £7m transfer from Ituano in his native Brazil.

The young attacker was playing lower league football in Brazil before Arsenal swoop in on him.

Martinelli is the second topscorer in the Arsenal team with 10 goals in all competitions.

The 10 goals have been in just 11 starts this season.

The 18-year-old has played 21 games for the Gunners since his transfer to North London last summer.

He earns £10,000 on a weekly basis and Arsenal are ready to triple his salary to £30,000 per week.

Gabriel Martinelli has taken his chance in the team after he replaced the suspended club skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the team.

Aubameyang was suspended after his red card during the London Derby clash with hosts Crystal Palace in the Premier League earlier this month.

Gabriel Martinelli has scored two goals in two league games since replacing Aubameyang.

Premier League table-toppers Liverpool have already contacted the agent of Nice wonderkid Pedro Brazao over a potential transfer this month.

This is according to the Daily Mirror via one of its publications as the Reds try to steal a march on their rivals in the bid to sign the 17-year-old winger.

European sides like Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Sporting Lisbon are also interested in the player who has made one appearance for French club Nice this season.

Popular media outlet Foot Mercato had earlier revealed that the Reds and PSG have made contact with the player.

Pedro Brazao could be the third signing for Liverpool this month though that depends on the agreement with Nice since the player has a long-term contract at the club until 2023.

Liverpool are keen to move swiftly in the transfer window to sign Pedro Brazao ahead of the other clubs.

The Reds adopted a similar strategy for Japanese international Takumi Minamino whom they signed at the start of this month.

Liverpool were able to sign the Japanese attacker ahead of arch-rivals Manchester United before they added Joe Hardy to their ranks from Brentford.

Joe Hardy has joined the Liverpool u23 team upon his transfer.

Arsenal have been dealt a big transfer blow following the news that they are set to miss out on one of their midfield targets.

Atletico Paranaense star Bruno Guimares has been on the radar of Arsenal in the past months but it looks like the player will be heading to France and not North London after French Ligue 1 club Lyon agreed on a deal to sign him.

As reported by French media portal L’Equipe, Lyon have reached an agreement to sign the 22-year-old midfielder for €25m this month.

It was also revealed that Lyon will now discuss personal terms with the player after the French giants reached an agreement with his Brazilian Serie A club over his transfer.

Lyon were able to overcome the hurdle of his club retaining some of his economic rights to reach a transfer fee agreement.

Earlier reports had claimed that Arsenal would make a move for the Brazilian midfielder in the summer. This was before other clubs showed interest in signing him this month.

The interest of other European teams like Benfica and Lyon forced the Gunners to the negotiation table but it seems that would be enough to secure the signing of the player with Champions League campaigners Lyon primed to seal his transfer.
