Bruno Fernandes

The unusual happen on Saturday when Portuguese international Bruno Fernandes missed a penalty against Newcastle in their 4-1 Premier League win.

Bruno Fernandes has had 10 penalties converted since he became a Man United player in January last year. It has been a perfect experience but that has now come to an end after the Saturday miss.

When asked after the game, he stated that he mistakenly changed his penalty approach and that was what led to missing it.

Bruno Fernandes admitted that what he did against Newcastle was different from what he has been doing and it did not work out for him. He explained that he wanted to put the ball more in the corner but it did not work for him.

The Portuguese international therefore congratulated Newcastle goalkeeper for being the first to save his penalty in the English Premier League as he has had six penalty goals more than any player in the league.

However, the next thing for Bruno Fernandes is to keep improving himself to be able to do better in subsequent games as Man United have been handed more penalties than any other club this season.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils defender Harry Maguire noted that the club still has a lot to learn as they are yet to be in their best.

Sergio Romero

English Premier League club Man United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is unhappy at Old Trafford and he is reported to be in conflict with the club for not sanctioning his sale in the last summer transfer window.

Sergio Romero has gone down the pecking order at Old Trafford from the second choice to the third owing to the return of Dean Henderson.

The South American reportedly had offers from several clubs but Manchester United refused to let him leave. Everton were keen give him the opportunity of regular playing time, according to leading journalist Gianluca Di Marzio but the Red Devils denied him the move.

Sergio Romero is unhappy at Manchester United and has been in conflict with the club,. His wife was first to speak out by blasting the Red Devils for not respecting the decision of her husband despite his contribution to the team in the past.

However, it will be a big surprise to see Sergio Romero at Manchester United after the January winter transfer window because he is desperate to leave the club and has suitors both in the Premier League and abroad.

Everton are believed to be interested in Sergio Romero while MLS clubs are also hoping to agree on a deal for him but that will depend on Man United.

David De Gea has been favored for the first-team role despite his unsatisfactory performance last season but the door is opened to Dean Henderson to nail down a regular first-choice shirt.

Manchester United are now stabilized with a number of wins across all competitions.

Sami Khedira

Manchester United have reportedly been linked with a shock move for Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira.

According to The Sun, the 2014 German World Cup winner has emerged as a target for Manchester United as he’s about to be released from his contract at Juventus.

Sami Khedira has been declared surplus to requirements at Juventus by new manager Andrea Pirlo.

Club legend Pirlo has been appointed the Juventus manager this summer on the back of the dismissal of Maurizio Sarri.

Pirlo has six midfielders in his team following the summer arrivals of Arthur and Weston McKennie and the aforementioned Khedira will be the man to make way in January despite the fact that he still has one year to run on his Juventus contract.

Brazilian international Arthur signed for Juventus from Barcelona in a swap deal with Miralem Pjanic, while young American international McKennie has joined on loan from Schalke 04 in the German Bundesliga.

Sami Khedira joined Juventus from Real Madrid in 2015 and he has won the league title in each of his five seasons in Turin.

He has not been a regular for Juventus in recent seasons. The German made just one assist in the league last season as he was restricted to 12 games.

English Premier League outfit Manchester United are reported to be considering a move for out-of-favor Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante after making an inquiry about his availability.

The 29-year-old World Cup winner has been linked away from the West London club as he can no longer boast of regular playing time under manager Frank Lampard.

Chelsea are willing to let go of the former Leicester City man but will not let him leave for a cheaper price than £46 million as a lot has been invested in him.

The Blues are also keen on the signature of West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice and will want to offload the French midfielder to be able to bring in the Englishman.

However, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now considering the option of signing him if an agreement would be reached with the West London club.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants an extra muscle to his midfield that will help Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek and N’Golo Kante is being considered as an option.

The only uncertainty is the fact that the £46 million might be too high for the Red Devils to meet and that could force them to back out of the deal in January.
