The headache with Man United at the moment is finding an alternative to England international winger Jadon Sancho who is a top target for the club but there has not been an agreement with Borussia Dortmund for a deal.

It is understood that the Red Devils are disappointed with the delay in the deal and the refusal of the Bundesliga outfit to bring down the fee. This is forcing the club to move in for other alternatives.

So far, Man United have been linked with the signature of Gareth Bale, Douglas Costa, and Ivan Perisic as a possible replacement but of them all, only one is readily available for a move.

The report of Gareth Bale’s interest in a return to Tottenham if he leaves Real Madrid is no longer hidden which remains he will not joining Man United again despite the interest be shown.

Also, Italian Serie A giants Juventus are yet to make up their mind on the future of Douglas Costa at the club and that means the Red Devils will have to go through another hurdle to snap up his signature.

However, with the latest report Manchester Evening News, Man United could be offered Ivan Perisic by Inter Milan as a swap deal for Chris Smalling as they are also interested in bringing in a new defender.

This will make signing Ivan Perisic easy for Man United but the decision that will have to be made is if they actually need him in the team or not.

The disappointing performance by the 25-year-old have sparked speculations that he will now leave the club as he has not had the best of time at Anfield for the past one year.

Belgium outlet Veotbal reports that Divock Origi does not see a future with the Merseyside outfit again, especially as the arrival of Diogo Jota has relegated him and taken him down the pecking order.

Divock Origi must leave the Reds team in order to save his national team career as leaving Liverpool will give him fresh opportunities elsewhere and playing time.

The report, therefore, claims Divock Origi will join Club Brugge in his homeland in the January window either on a loan deal or he could decide for a permanent move as a place in the Jurgen Klopp’s team is no longer guaranteed.

Divock Origi still has a running contract with the English Premier League title holders until 2024 and a permanent move will be the best deal for him and his suitors if his asking price will be affordable.

The Belgium international has been a very important player in Jurgen Klopp’s team but he is mostly used from the bench to seal wins for the club> that was seen in Liverpool’s Champions League win last two seasons.

However, it is yet to be known if the former Borussia Dortmund boss will release the Belgium international in the January transfer window, knowing how important he can be, coming from the bench in important games.

The expectation of fans and pundits are that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will bring in new signings in the coming January transfer window but it is feared that they could be left disappointed at the end of the day.

Liverpool have lost key players to injury including Virgil Van Dijk and Fabinho which exposes their defence to dangers against opponents. The Dutch international is not expected to play again this season while the Brazilian international would be seen later on.

Several names have already been linked for a move to Anfield with reports that the German boss is preparing to bring in a new defender that will serve as cover for the former Southampton defender and also be able to play along with him when he returns from injury.

Liverpool Echo have now reported that there is no assurance that manager Jurgen Klopp will bring in a new defender in the coming January transfer window, adding that he could just decide to stick with his current squad and get the best from them.

This report confirms the claim made by former Liverpool player Adam Lallana who claims that the German boss is happy with the current situation at Anfield as he always likes to be an “underdog”
Adam Lallana added that Jurgen Klopp will surprise many by sticking to his team and getting them to pull the best result that is wished for.
However, the Reds are being linked with Ozan Kabak from the German Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 with reports claiming that they will be making a move for him as soon as the January transfer window.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has described Liverpool’s current situation as being married to injuries as the list of the injured players continues to grow but that has not stopped his team from picking points in the Champions League and the Premier League.

“The Premier League has a superiority. Project Big Picture wanted to reinforce this superiority. The other leagues try to destroy the advantage of the Premier League”

He expressed fears that the European League could be the plan of other leagues to frustrate the Premier League because of the advantages they will no longer benefit.

Arsene Wenger also revealed that the only reason why the frontiers of this initiative are getting down with it is because of the financial benefits they will enjoy as investors.

However, North London outfit Arsenal and the manager have not come out clear on their opinion of the development as it is claimed that they are being invited to be a part of it.

Manager Mikel Arteta has refused to give a stand on the matter, stating that the final format is yet to be known but expects something concrete very soon. He, therefore, called on the unity of all to be able to find the right solutions.

Meanwhile, the league is proposed to kick-start sometime in 2022 with 18 top European teams, including Barcelona and Real Madrid expected to be part of it.
