EPL: Man United in for another summer transfer shock

Jadon Sancho

This summer transfer window might not be the best of its kind for Man United as they could be set for another disappointment in the chase of a player being linked.

Man United’s top target Jadon Sancho will not be joining the club as they are yet to agree on a fee with Borussia Dortmund while the possibility of a deal happening again is very slim.

The Red Devils have, therefore, been linked with a move for Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale as a replacement for the England international winger but with the latest report, they might not be landing him with claims that the player wants to move to North London club, Tottenham.

Gareth Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnette claims that the Wales international still love Spurs, adding that it is where he wants to be and not the Old Trafford.

This implies that the Red Devils’ chances of getting a creative winger as an alternative for Jadon Sancho have now suffered a setback.

The 31-year-old has been out-of-favour at the Bernabeu under manager Zinedine Zidane and it is not certain he will be favoured for regular selection, the reason why he will have to find a new club.

RB Leipzig centre back Dayot Upamecano has refused to rule out a transfer out of his German club despite signing a new contract at the end of last season.

Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a move for the 21-year-old defender who told French news portal Telefoot that anything can happen in a football season when he was asked about a potential transfer.

French international Upamecano was linked with Arsenal, Bayern Munich and a lot of other clubs earlier this year before he penned a new deal at RB Leipzig at the end of a successful Champions League campaign.

The Frenchman was named in the Champions League team of the season for his outstanding performances in the colours of RB Leipzig whom he helped reach the semi-final of the competition for the first time.

RB Leipzig were eliminated in the last four by French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

In his new contract at RB Leipzig, Dayot Upamecano has a €42m release clause for next summer.

Manchester United might not wait till next summer for the player with the Red Devils looking to sign a new centre back. A bid of €50m plus could be enough to prise him away from RB Leipzig this summer.

Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are said to be preparing a final offer for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho according to the newest reports in the media in the United Kingdom (UK).

It’s an open secret that Sancho is top transfer target in this year’s summer transfer window and they have spent the most of it pursuing a deal for him.

The Daily Mirror has stated that the Red Devils are preparing a take it or leave it offer for Jadon Sancho.

Manchester United are ready to offer an initial fee of £75m plus £15m in add-ons for the player.

The total transfer offer of £90m is still a long way from the £108m valuation of the player by his club, Borussia Dortmund.

Manchester United tried to meet up with the August 10 ultimatum set for the club by Borussia Dortmund on the Jadon Sancho transfer but they were unable to meet up mainly due to the lack of agreement with his agent. Personal terms and agent fees have now been sorted out leaving Manchester United to agree a fee with Dortmund for the 20-year-old England international.

Jadon Sancho scored 17 goals and provided 16 assists in 32 league outings for Borussia Dortmund last season but it was not enough as the club missed out on the league title to rivals Bayern Munich.

Report: Greek Super League giants Show Interest In Liverpool Defender

Liverpool defender Yasser Larouci is on the radar of Greek Super League giants Olympiacos according to Inside Futbol.

Olympiacos are in the market for a new left-sided defender after the departure of Kostantinos Tsimikas to Liverpool earlier this summer.

The Reds paid around £11.8m for the signing of Tsimikas and it was the first transfer made by the Premier League champions.

The Merseyside giants have since added the duo of Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota to their squad.

Thiago Alcantara has signed for Liverpool in a £27m deal including add-ons, while Diogo Jota left Wolves for Liverpool in a £45m transfer, add-ons inclusive.

Larouci is unlikely to get much action at Liverpool this season as the likes of Andy Robertson, Kostantinos Tsimikas and Neco Williams are all ahead of him for the left-back spot.

The 19-year-old Le Harve Academy graduate has one year left on his Liverpool contract and it’s like the Reds are keen to cash in on him this summer rather than let him leave for free at the end of this season.

Yaser Larouci has a better chance of featuring in the first team at Olympiacos in Greece than at Anfield where competition for places is very stiff.

Jadon Sancho

Manchester United have found the goings tough in the current transfer window but a lot of movements in and out of the club can still happen between now and the end of the window in a little over a week’s time.

For now, four incoming transfers and three outgoing transfers are in the pipeline as per the various reports in the British media.

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is the undisputed top transfer target for the Red Devils and the long-running transfer saga has been resurrected in the last few hours after the club made an offer of £75m plus £15m for the winger.

Juventus winger Douglas Costa is their alternative for Sancho but they face competition for him from Wolves who want him as a replacement for new Liverpool signing Diogo Jota.

There has been little or no development in the potential transfer of FC Porto left-back Alex Telles to Manchester United in the past few hours. He has one year to run on his existing deal with the Portuguese giants.

Dayot Upamecano is a centre back target for Manchester United and they may have to pay over €50m for him in this transfer window as per the report from The Peoples Person. He has a €42m release clause in his RB Leipzig contract but it won’t be active until next summer.

For outgoings, Leeds United are interested in signing Daniel James from Manchester United, while Inter Milan want to sign Chris Smalling after the centre back’s successful loan spell at AS Roma last season.

Third choice Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is also a target for Everton with Toffees shot stopper Jordan Pickford under pressure to perform.

Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo is the latest player to be linked with a move to Premier League giants Manchester United in this transfer window.

Manchester United found out that the centre back position could be a problematic one after their first league game ended in a disastrous manner.

Jean-Clair Todibo is a centre back by trade and can also feature in other defensive areas.

Mundo Deportivo stated that Manchester United won’t have to pay over the odds for the 20-year-old as Barcelona are only demanding for £13.7m.

Manchester United lost their league opener last weekend as they were beaten 3-1 at home by Crystal Palace and Swedish international Victor Lindelof was at fault for the three goals conceded.

Lindelof partnered club-record signing Harry Maguire at the heart of the Manchester United defence during the Palace game.

Apart from Todibo, Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar, RB Leipzig star Dayot Upamecano etc. have all been mentioned as a possible centre back signing at Manchester United.

Jean-Clair Todibo has suffered from a lot of injury problems in recent seasons but his quality is not in doubt as he showed during his loan spell at Schalke 04 in the German top flight.

The injury ended his loan spell at Schalke 04 abruptly last season.

Manchester United legend Andy Cole has backed his former club over their reluctance to pay the outrageous transfer fee demanded by German Bundesliga team Borussia Dortmund for their top target, Jadon Sancho.

When asked about Dortmund’s valuation of the player, former Manchester United striker told PA news agency that it is crazy money.

According to him, Manchester United are right not to bow to the outrageous demands of Borussia Dortmund.

Andy Cole also revealed that he wants thr club to strengthen the team in both the central defence and central striker positions.

The ex-Fulham, Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United player was satisfied with the current crop of players in the Manchester United midfield.

He said that the Manchester United midfielders can hold their own against any midfield in the Premier League.

Manchester United have found it tough in the present transfer window after making just one signing since the start of the window in July.

Houssem Aouar

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has given the go ahead for the club to make another bid for highly rated Lyon skipper Houssem Aouar.

Aouar, 22, is the top midfield target for Arteta and Arsenal as they attempt to beef up their squad before the transfer window ends in October.

The latest Arsenal bid was confirmed by French TV show Telefoot Chaine as it was revealed that the Gunners have made an offer of around €40m for the player.

It was also revealed that Gunners boss Arteta is keen to see the transfer through to a positive outcome.

Houssem Aouar has made his decision to sign for Arsenal after the lack of approach from other interested clubs like Manchester City, Barcelona and Juventus.

Various media outlets claimed that the player has already agreed his weekly wages with the Gunners and that the Premier League giants are in talks with Lyon over his transfer.

Houssem Aouar came through the ranks at Lyon and he’s one of their best players.

The Frenchman showed his quality in the Champions League last season and he was a big driving force behind the performances recorded by Lyon.

In eight Champions League outings, Aouar scored one goal in addition to four assists.

Declan Rice

Chelsea have spent the most money amongst European clubs during this year’s summer transfer window and it looks like their transfer splurge has not ended according to the Daily Express.

The Blues have spent almost £250m on transfers this summer and the report via the aforementioned British media outlet stated that the West London giants have agreed on personal terms with Declan Rice paving the way for the club to sign him if they can agree on a transfer fee with the Hammers.

Declan Rice spent the majority of his youth career at Chelsea before he was released at the age of 14.

West Ham United signed him almost immediately and the England international went on to represent the first team and he has not looked back since then.

Declan Rice is an important member of the West Ham United squad and he has a valuation of £80m on his head.

Chelsea will take their transfer splurge over the £300m mark this summer if they are able to re-sign the midfielder with the Hammers reluctant to lower their asking price.

The Hammers hierarchy came in for some rough treatment from the fans earlier this month following the sale of young winger Grady Diangana and the sale of Declan Rice would even cause more problems at the club.
