EPL: This Man United goalkeeper is leaving the club this summer

The emerging report have claimed that Man United goalkeeper Matej Kovar, will be leaving the Old Trafford this summer transfer window but on a loan deal.

The 20-year-old goalkeeper only arrived at Man United from Slovacko in 2018 for £45,000 and he is yet to see a first-team football which calls for a need to help him out.

With Dean Henderson returning from his loan spell at Sheffield United, the Red Devils will have to release Matej Kovar to continue his development elsewhere until he can be able to fight for a shirt at the club.

At the moment, there are a number of controversies at the Old Trafford in the goalkeeping department, with Dean Henderson and Sergio Romero both insisting they want a first-team role ahead of David Dea Gea or they will find their way out of the club.

The Red Devils are still battling to resolve this goalkeeping crisis but it is feared that one of them will have to leave the club on a loan deal or a permanent move with both goalkeepers already having offers on the table.

However, Matej Kovar has shown to have a big potential, the reason why the Red Devils invested in him and they will ensure his future is secured ahead of any other decisions.

This will be the second outing for Arsenal this season and it will be coming up against West Ham United in what is regarded as a London derby game.

The Gunners will be moving into the game as favourites after delivering a 3-0 win in their season’s opener against Fulham United last weekend to boost the spirit in camp especially with the previous Community Shield win.

However, the Gunners are expected to be without some of their first-team players. Although the same was experienced in the Fulham game and they were able to pull through. Should the same be expected?

Granit Xhaka is a major doubt for the London derby clash having received a knock. David Luiz is still out and might not be available alongside Shkodran Mustafi and Pablo Mari but that will not stop the Gunners from fielding what seems to be a strong team.

Willian was instrumental in the win against Fulham and he is expected to start again after being tactically substituted for the game while Deni Ceballos could return to the starting line up if Granit Xhaka fails to make it.

No doubt about Bernd Leno in the middle of the sticks with Emi Martinez already gone to Aston Villa while Tierney, Gabriel Magalhaes, and Hector Bellerin could get the nod at the back.

Arsenal hero, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is no doubt for tomorrow. Arsenal fans will be hoping he continues his goal scoring form alongside Alexandre Lacazette in the attack.

Man Utd v Crystal Palace

This will be the first game for Man United this season as they were off in the first week and will get the Crystal Palace clash at the Old Trafford with the hope of continuing the winning streak they enjoyed in the last few games of the season.

Paul Pogba remains a major doubt for the game as a result of the coronavirus he contacted. He was away from a couple of training and there are no assurances he would be ready for a starting role despite manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hoping to have him.

The Frenchman’s absence could hand a debut to the new recruit, Donny van de Beek to play alongside Bruno Fernandes in the middle with the Red Devils having a fully fit team as Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones are the only absentees for the game.

However, United have enjoyed more victories than their Saturday visitors, having won 17 of 22 clashes in the past at the Old Trafford, giving them the hope of a good start.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace might be handing a debut to Nigerian international Eberechi Eze with manager Roy Hodgson hoping to line him up in the attack alongside Wilfried Zaha and Michy Batshuayi.

Man United and Chelsea had been linked with the signature of Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla earlier in this summer transfer window but from the latest report, he will be staying in Serie A.

It is confirmed that the 20-year-old will be parting ways with Serie A outfit Hellas Verona but he will remain in Italy with a move to Rome as AS Roma are reported to have agreed on terms with him.

Both Man United and Chelsea are believed to have a need for a defender this summer transfer window to be able to strengthen and fight for titles this season.

The Red Devils seek a partner with Harry Maguire, the reason why they showed interest in the Albanian defender but from all indications, they have met the dead rock.

Marash Kumbulla gained the attention he now has from a number of top European clubs as a result of his rigorous and no-nonsense style for his team. He has been tipped to be a good fit for the English Premier League because of his physicality.

Both the Blues and the Red Devils are yet to sort out their defensive needs as the West London club only secured Thiago Silva while United have been unable to do any defensive deal.

Houssem Aouar

If emerging reports are to be believed, then the English Premier League club Arsenal might announce another summer signing before the transfer window ends on October 5.

So far, the North London club have been able to confirm the capture of Willian from Chelsea and Gabriel Magalhaes from French Ligue 1 club Lille while two other on-loan players were made permanent with the coming of William Saliba from loan to make it a busy window for the Gunners.

However, the Gunners are now believed to be chasing the signature of French Ligue 1 outfit Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar and Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey as their remaining target for the summer window.

It is now being reported by Daily Star that the North London club have agreed on personal terms with the player but there has not been an agreement on a fee with Lyon.

It is understood that Houssem Aouar wants to join Arsenal and will do all he can to make it happen but Arsenal will have to agree with Lyon as a fee of £60 million is being negotiated.

Mikel Arteta is making efforts to make Arsenal title contenders and has identified the need to bring in quality players to help the project.

English Premier League outfit Man United might be having their search for a left-back cheaper than expected with their target and Porto defender Alex Telles ready for a move this summer transfer window.

The Red Devils were paying attention to Real Madrid star Sergio Reguilon with claims that they held talks with his representatives but he seems to have had an agreement with North London club Tottenham after claims that he had spoken to manager Jose Mourinho.

Should the Red Devils boss consider the recruit of another left-back a necessity, he would have to move for Alex Telles and has been told that the player is available.

A Bola reports that Alex Telles’ agent claims to be expecting a bid for United as he is keen to have his client move to the English Premier League this season with October 5 as the deadline.

It has been a very slow transfer window for Man United as they have only been able to seal the signature of Donny van de Beek with several failed attempts on other targets.

However, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still positive that his club will bring in a couple of players before the transfer window is shut.

The summer transfer window might just be starting for Premier League champions Liverpool as they are reported to have agreed on a deal for Thiago Alcantara.

Now it is reported that they are in the race against FA Cup and Community Shield winners, Arsenal for the signature of Sporting Clube de Portugal full-back Nuno Mendes.

Nuno Mendes gave an impressive performance for his team after the lockdown under manager Ruben Amorim to be attracting interest from all corners across Europe.

Two Serie A outfits, Juventus and AC Milan are also reported to be attracted to Nuno Mendes and are preparing an offer to land him before the window ends.

However, the battle is between Arsenal and Liverpool but that will highly depend on the need for the clubs as Arsenal will not make a left-back signing a priority with the presence of Tierney and Ainsley-Maitland Niles for the position.

The concern for Arsenal in the transfer window is to secure Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid and Houssem Aouar from Lyon before it ends on October 5.

At the moment, the North London outfit look stable at the back with the coming of Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba in the team.

David Raya is expected to serve as a replacement for Argentina international stopper Emi Martinez as the Gunners are desperate to have more options in the goalkeeping department.

Emi Martinez has moved to join Aston Villa in the region of £20 million after many years as a substitute at the Emirates Stadium but his end was marked with superb performances that made Arsenal fans call for his stay.

The former Arsenal goalkeeper left the club when the ovation was high after helping to win the FA Cup title and the Community Shield with the absence of Bernd Leno to injury.

Sami Khedira

English Premier League outfit Man United have been linked with several players even before the start of the summer transfer window but have been able to secure just one so far.

The Red Devils recently sealed the signature of Donny van de Beek from Ajax in a summer transfer window that showed gave the hint of being a very busy one for the club.

Several other names including Douglas Costa, Ivan Perisic, Gareth Bale, Kingsley Coman, and more have been linked but none has been able to complete a move.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not seek to bench either of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, or new recruit Donny van de Beek for the 33-year-old.
