Bournemouth star Joshua King is desperate for a return to Man United as he issues a come-get-me plea to the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in this summer transfer window.

Joshua King noted that he had spent five years of his early football career at Man United and learned. He is keen to return there and will jump at any opportunity to do so.

According to him, a move was attempted in the last January transfer window but was unsuccessful but that will not distract him as he is willing to wait for the right time to make the move.

One of the reasons why Joshua King is keen on a move to Man United is his dream to play in the Champions League. He is also very optimistic that it will happen within the next two years.

Pundits have continued to call on Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to add a striker that will be able to deliver goals consistently to the team and Joshua King could be an option for him.

It is, therefore, unknown if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has an interest in Joshua King and seeks to work with him in order to make a move for him.

Man United named in five-team list of suitors for Bournemouth star

Bournemouth star David Brooks will be the hottest player of the moment in the English Premier League as five clubs are reported to be interested in his chase.

Man United, Tottenham, Everton, Leicester City, and Liverpool are names amongst the club that are interested in the 23-year-old Wales international

It is understood that topflight clubs still have until Friday by 5 pm to complete deals within the domestic league which means a move from the Vitality Stadium is still very possible.

It is the wish of Bournemouth that David Brooks remain at the club but they could be forced to do so if any of the suitors are able to step forward with his £40 million asking price.

The fact that Bournemouth are already relegated to the Championship makes it very difficult to keep a player as David Brooks will prefer to remain in the Premier League.

So far, Bournemouth have lost most of their stars, including Nathan Ake, Aaron Ramsdale, and Callum Wilson since the end of last season and they are already preparing to leave.

Howbeit, it is unlikely that Man United will make a move for David Brooks again as they have enough options in their midfield, with the signing of Donny van de Beek from Ajax.

EPL: Will Man United still move in for Bournemouth duo?

Man United have been linked with the signature of Bournemouth stars David Brook and Josh King but there is yet to be any development on their interest with few days left to the end of the summer transfer window.

It has been a very long summer transfer window for the Red Devils for failing to secure the services of most of their targets. Ajax star Donny van de Beek is the only major signing made by Man United this summer window despite being linked with a long list of names.

However, the Manchester Evening News report that it is unlikely for the Red Devils to sign Josh King and David Brooks especially now that they are desperate to conclude a deal before the summer transfer window.

David Brooks scored seven goals in 33 appearances for the Cherries in the first season but spent was out to injury in most part of the last campaign. That might have limited the number of his suitors and might have convinced the Red Devils not to make a move for him.

The need for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the moment is a winger and a defender as that has been very difficult to come by especially with the rejection of their bid for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

Man United are reported to be leading in the race for the signature of David Brooks as they hope to add him to tier books before the end of the summer transfer market.

Manchester Evening News reports that a deal could be sealed in the coming weeks with the 23-year old also keen on a bigger opportunity following an impressive and consistent performance in the topflight for the past two seasons.

Leicester City have also shown interest in the signature of David Brooks but they seem to be abandoning his chase after securing the signature of Cengiz from the Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma to make Man United favourites.

With less than 2-years left to the end of his current contract, Bournemouth could take advantage of that to cash in from his sale as they are now aware that the Red Devils are desperate for new players despite winning their Carabao Cup game on Tuesday night.

Following their defeat in the opening game of the Premier League, Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that his team must do more in the recruitment of players before the summer window ends.

The Red Devils have only been able to add Donny van de Beek to their books this transfer window.

EPL: Why Josh King dreams of Man United transfer revealed

Joshua King

The biggest dream of Bournemouth striker Josh King is to have a move to Man United as his second spell at the Old Trafford this summer transfer window.

Josh King was a Red Devils player as a 16-year-old boy and was able to make two senior team appearances before he was sold out. No doubt he has grown up to become a man and that is expected to reflect on his game.

It would be recalled that Man United made an attempt for his signature in the last January transfer window but they failed to complete the deal before bringing in Nigerian international Odion Ighalo from China.

A report by The Athletic claims Josh King still dreams of a return to Man United and he is ready to make it happen by snubbing all the interests on the table for his signature.

However, Man United have been advised by pundits to sign a goal-scoring centre striker that will help them deliver their dream titles in the coming season.

The Red Devils are reportedly set to stick with France international Anthony Martial and are hoping to secure the signature of England international winger Jadon Sancho from German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund.

Man United hope that the statement credited to Bournemouth will ensure their deal for David Brooks this summer transfer window.

The Red Devils have identified the Wales winger as an alternative for England international Jadon Sancho and are reportedly ready to submit an offer before the end of the summer transfer window.

Bournemouth have been relegated to the Championship which makes it very difficult for most of their players to remain at the club because of their wish to play in the Premier League and David Brooks is not left out of this.

However, Bournemouth boss Jason Tindall has stated that the club will not stand in the way of any player if they want to leave but stressed that each player has a price that must be met before any deal can happen.

It is understood that the Red Devils will have to submit a bid of £40 million to sign the Welsh winger as the 23-year-old is valued very high by the Cherries after impressing in the just-concluded season.

The Red Devils are yet to get started with their summer transfer deals but it is expected that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will do some deals before the end of the window.

The English Premier League outfit, Man United have been searching for an alternative for their top target, Jadon Sancho as they seek to land the player before the end of the summer transfer window.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer identified the England international as his major target and was desperate to land him but the club failed to reach an agreement with the German Bundesliga club, Borussia Dortmund over a deal and a winger is set to remain at the club for another season.

This has forced the Red Devils into making moves for another alternative and they are reportedly considering the signature of Bournemouth star, David Brooks this summer window.

The Sport Witness reports that the Red Devils are serious in the deal for David Brooks who plays as a right-winger for Bournemouth.

However, David Brooks cannot boast of the same profile as Jadon Sancho as he scored only one goal in nine appearances after returning from a serious ankle injury

David Brooks has been tipped to be a very interesting player but his injury stopped him from helping Bournemouth from being relegated and it is expected that he will remain in the topflight with another club next season.

Man United Vs Bournemouth: Solskjaer to field fresh team?

Man United will be hoping to continue their smooth run with a win when they host Bournemouth later on Saturday in the Premier League clash at the Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have been commanding in their last two games, defeating Sheffield United and Brighton 3-0 to earn a place in the 5th position.

It is expected that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will field a new team, different from the ones that enjoyed the previous wins.

This is after the former Red Devils player hinted that some of the players are injured and will need assessments before confirming their availability.

Solskjaer noted that there are more games to be played which makes it unnecessary to force players back to the pitch.

After reports that Bruno Fernandes had a knock in training, he could be rested by the manager with Fred likely to pick up a central midfield role while Paul Pogba is allowed to advance.

Luke Shaw could also be rested for Brandon Williams a start at left-back.

However, those expected to start the game will be predicted from the latest team news that would be made public by the Norwegian manager.

Solskjaer noted that the remaining games left are important because it would be played against clubs that they have points to prove.

West London club Chelsea won’t be re-signing former player Nathan Ake during this month’s winter transfer window according to the publication via the stables of the Daily Express.

The transfer decision on Nathan Ake has been reached because of one Chelsea player as confirmed by manager Frank Lampard.

Nathan Ake is a Bournemouth player after he joined the Cherries from Chelsea permanently in 2017 for a fee of around £20m.

He joined Bournemouth some months after he spent a six-month loan period at the club during the first half of the 2016/17 campaign before the Dutch international was recalled by ex-Blues boss Antonio Conte in January 2017.

According to The Sun, Chelsea have until the end of this month to activate the £40m buyback clause in his transfer to Bournemouth.

Frank Lampard and Chelsea have decided to let that buyback clause end after the decision was made not to re-sign the player who made 17 appearances for the club in five years between 2012 and 2017.

He represented Chelsea in the Premier League just seven times.

Nathan Ake is the best defender at Bournemouth and his focus is to get his team out of the relegation zone with the Cherries two points away from safety at the moment.
