United Star Emerges As Shock Transfer Target For ex-Chelsea Boss




Tahith Chong

Juventus have emerged as a surprise destination for Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong who is close to ending his contract at Old Trafford.

The 19-year-old will become a free agent in the summer if he isn’t offered a new contract by the club, and Juventus are looking at the possibility of getting him without paying a penny.

Daily Mail claimed that the Turin side are hoping to convince the player to join Maurizio Sarri’s side in the next summer window.

Tahith Chong made his first-team debut in January but has failed to nail down a regular spot in Solskjaer’s starting lineup. He has only featured in four games in all competitions this season and he is yet to open his goal-scoring account for the team.

However, it is said that the Premier League outfits are in talks with the youngster over a new contract as they can’t afford to let go of such a highly-rated player who has scored two goals in three games for the U23 side this season.

Meanwhile, United summer signing Daniel James has told reporters that he wants to score 10 goals before the end of the current campaign.

According to him, his target for the season is to record double-digit goals with his new side. James is definitely on course to achieving his mission, having scored three goals so far.

His position in the Manchester United has been less certain with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the Red Devils manager and that informed his desire to leave the club in January but that was no longer possible especially with the injuries to several midfielders at the club.

The injuries to the likes of Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba meant that the Serbian midfielder had to see out the remainder of his contract at Old Trafford until this summer despite the interest from the likes of Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid etc.

Matic has made 22 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions this season including the last three games.

Calcio Mercato revealed that Manchester United won’t offer him a new contract and several clubs are on his trail. Here are the top three favourites to sign him this summer:

1. Juventus

2. Inter Milan

The Nerazzuri were interested in him before they opted for Christian Eriksen whom they signed from Tottenham Hotspur in January.

3. AC Milan

The salary package for Nemanja Matic could scupper a possible move to AC Milan. He earns €10m annually at Manchester United.

EPL:Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has sent a firm transfer message to star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as doubts over his long-term future at Arsenal continues.

Mikel Arteta has been very impressive since becoming the new Arsenal manager as evident in the narrow win over Everton at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening.

After the game, Mikel Arteta spoke extensively above his skipper as he said that the club would do everything within its power to tie him down to a new contract thereby ending the transfer speculation over his future at the club.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will have one year left on his Arsenal deal by this summer and senior Gunners officials might have no choice than to sell him if he doesn’t pen a new deal or risk losing him for free next summer when his contract will expire.

The Gabonese international has spent a little over two years at Arsenal since his then club-record transfer from Borussia Dortmund in the top flight of German football.

Arsenal paid £57m to sign him from the German Bundesliga.

He has been the leading goalscorer at Arsenal since then despite playing on the wings.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang received praise and adulation from his manager Mikel Arteta after he scored twice to lead the Gunners to a slim 3-2 win over Everton at home during the just concluded weekend.

The Gabonese international star has now taken his league tally to 17 goals to make him the joint topscorer in the division alongside Jamie Vardy who plays his club football for Leicester City.

He has 19 goals in all competitions for Arsenal this season, which is nine more than the next player, Gabriel Martinelli.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the topscorer in the Premier League last season alongside the Liverpool duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

EPL: Liverpool To Complete Jadon Sancho’s Transfer Ahead Of Man Utd On One Condition

Jadon Sancho

Reigning European champions Liverpool have been tipped to sign highly rated Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho ahead of arch-rivals Manchester United on one condition.

Liverpool and Manchester United are the top two clubs in success terms in English football and they enjoy a rivalry that has lasted for several decades.

During the latest episode of The Agenda, journalist Caoimhe O’Neill tipped Liverpool to beat their rivals to the signing of Jadon Sancho this summer before adding that it would only be possible on one condition.

According to her, Liverpool will have to sell one of their front three to accommodate the arrival of England international Jadon Sancho.

Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino are members of the famed Liverpool front trio and they have all been instrumental to their successes in the last eight months.

Liverpool have won the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup titles within that time and the three front players were instrumental to those achievements.

The signing of a quality player like Jadon Sancho is tempting especially with age on his side. The 19-year-old has been in devastating form for his German team in the last two years.

He has 16 goals and 18 assists in 31 games in all competitions. His attacking stats can’t be matched by any of the Liverpool front three but their synergy can’t be overemphasized and that has been key to the aforementioned Liverpool achievements.

Manchester United wanted to sign Jadon Sancho last summer but Borussia Dortmund were keen on keeping him for this season. The teenage attacker could leave this summer and a transfer fee of £100m plus would be required to secure his signing.

Apart from Liverpool and Manchester United, Chelsea are also in the running to sign him as they try to sign a replacement for Real Madrid signing Eden Hazard.
