Gareth Bale

Man United long-term target Gareth Bale will no longer be leaving Real Madrid as widely speculated at some quarters ahead of the summer transfer window.

It was claimed that the former Tottenham player is unhappy at the Bernabeu and would be seeking to leave after failing to please manager Zinedine Zidane for regular playing time.

The reports had claimed that the future for the Welshman is unlikely with Real Madrid and could return to England with Man United as his long-term suitor.

However, Gareth Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has dismissed the claims, stressing that his client still has two-years left to the end of his career at Real Madrid and will see it through before leaving.

Jonathan Barnett therefore, described manager Zinedine Zidane as ungrateful, claiming that the France international does not want to coach Gareth Bale but noted his client is happy at Madrid and not in a hurry to leave.

The agent stressed that Gareth Bale is as good as his teammates and the decision to leave him out is only a personal one for the former Real Madrid player.

However, Man United will have to face its major target Jadon Sancho who is available in the summer transfer window but for a fee of £100 million.

Eden Hazard

The greatest news Chelsea fans will want to hear is the return of Belgium international Eden Hazard to the Stamford Bridge from Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid.

Eden Hazard is one of the best players the West London outfit have ever had in recent times and despite leaving eth club on a big-money deal for some years, the fans are yet to forget the good memories he gave to them with his superb performance when he was still at the Stamford Bridge.

The West London outfit had a busy summer transfer window with about £200 million spent on the recruitment of players including Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Edouard Mendy, and Thiago Siva.

While some of the new names have helped to transform the team in their own little way, none of the new faces have been able to help the Chelsea fans forget Eden Hazard.

The Belgium international made his first appearance for Real Madrid this season as a substitute against German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League, finishing it in a 2-2 draw.

However, Chelsea’s manager, ahead of his side’s Champions League clash against Krasnodar confessed that he is still trying to find the right balance between defence and attack, stressing that he wants to get both sides of the game right.

Hearing of Frank Lampard’s words, the Blues fans immediately stormed Twitter to call for the return of Eden Hazard, insisting that he is the best man to help the team with the balance that is needed.

Some Chelsea fans hold the opinion that Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has not been able to get the best of Eden Hazard and thinks he should return as they described him as “King”.

While Frank Lampard has not made any claim close to recalling Eden Hazard from Madrid, it will be the dream of every Chelsea fan to have him back at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has not been in goal scoring form, a development that has affected the North London outfit as they lost their last two Premier League games against Man City and Leicester City.

This has raised concerns amongst fans and analysts as he the Gabon International has been marked to lift the Gunners team this season with his goals, having started on a good note by winning the Community Shield for the club with his goals.

However, the solution for Arsenal has been revealed Mail online Columnist, Jordan Seaward as he wrote that other players must step up now to help the club so as to stop the overreliance on the former Borussia Dortmund forward for goals.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is Arsenal’s highest goalscorer since he joined the club in January 2018 and he has been consistent which warmed him a new and improved deal at the Emirates Stadium.

Jordan Seaward stated that the North London outfit have other attackers in the team like Alexandre Lacazette, Nicolas Pepe, and Willian stressing that they have to rise the occasion to deliver goals for the club if they must save the season.

“Arsenal cannot continue to be over-reliant on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

“When he is on song, they need not worry, but when he is in a rough path – as he is right now – there needs to be someone else they can turn to” he wrote.

He noted that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang must walk through a difficult time and must be helped by his teammate to overcome in a good time.

Meanwhile, critics have lamented the fact that the Gabon International went quiet with goalscoring as soon as he was handed the new deal at the start of the season. He is now one of the highest paid players at the club.

Manager Mikel Arteta has backed the former Borussia Dortmund to return to his best as quickly as possible because of the need to start winning again.

Concerns over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s form have been motivated by Arsenal’s poor form from the last two Premier League games.

Mikel Arteta
