EPL: How Salah could be plotting Sadio Mane’s exit unknowingly

There has been a little frustration in the camp of Liverpool, especially in their bid to defend the Premier League title as the journey has not gone the way they expected.

The Premier League title holders are currently level on points with their Merseyside rivals, Everton as toppers of the league, and have been able to deliver two wins in their two Champions League games.
However, a lot of things have happened in the short spell of the season, most importantly the 7-2 humiliation against Aston Villa.

The Reds cannot forget that result in a hurry. This adds to the 2-2 draw against Everton.

The injury plague at Anfield is also something to be concerned about as the Reds have now lost Virgil Van Dijk, Fabinho to injury while Mohamed Salah was seen limping in the Champions League game against Midtjylland.

Nevertheless, the Sheffield United game which saw the Reds team record a slim win might have caused a sting in the relationship between Mohamed Salah and Saido Mane unknown to many.

Liverpool were able to deliver a win in that game despite coming from a goal down, al thanks to Sadio mane for his brilliance. It would be recalled that it was his header that was parried by Aaron Ramsdale which had Roberto Firmino finish it off. The Senegal international also handed the assist to Diogo Jota to score his first goal for the club.

However, Sadio Mane looked unhappy after the game and it may not be unconnected to Mohamed Salah’s refusal to hand him the ball in the second half that could have placed him on the score sheet.

BBC Sport pundit, Garth Crooks, who observed keenly what happened, said when the ball came to Mohamed Salah he should have handed it to Sadio mane who was well placed but refused to do so to deny the Senegal international a goal. He, however, expresses fears that Sadio Mane could be unhappy and that may force him to consider other suitors who are interested in him.

Jadon Sancho

Manchester United did not sign England international winger Jadon Sancho last summer transfer window but that does not mean a deal will not go down later in the future.

The Red Devils have made the former Man City academy player their first choice but they were unable to agree on a fee with the German Bundesliga club, Borussia Dortmund and that put an end to the saga.

However, Borussia Dortmund have released a statement hinting that Manchester United could still get Jadon Sancho to sign at the Old Trafford, but made it clear it will only happen in the future.

The club clearly stated that they expected Jadon Sancho to remain at the club for AT LEAST ONE MORE SEASON. This means he could be leaving the club in the coming summer transfer window.

Commentators have expressed the possibility of an agreement between the two clubs for a deal to happen in the next summer window but that was not stated anywhere by either of the clubs.

The Red Devils will now move ahead with their transfer activities by looking out for an alternative so as to rebuild the squad in January.

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.
