Legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has spoken against the proposed European Super League which is being worked out for the 2022 kickoff.

English Premier League outfits Liverpool and Man United are believed to be frontiers in the new development which already has the backing of the world football governing body.

So far, the European Super League is gaining momentum and has received the backing of the American Bank JP Morgan with about $6 billion and that means there is no stopping of it.

Foam Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who is now a FIFA staff has expressed his dissatisfaction with the development, arguing that all advantages benefitted by the Premier League will no longer be in place.

“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.

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.
