Manchester United have been handed a big boost on the injury front ahead of their Premier League clash at home to Fulham on Tuesday following the news that Welsh international Daniel James and Frenchman Anthony Martial are in contention after they both returned to training.
Winger James has not been involved in the Manchester United squad since he made the bench for the first leg clash with Italian Serie A capital club AS Roma in the Europa League semi-finals. He was an unused substitute as the Red Devils recovered from a 2-1 deficit at the halftime break to beat Roma 6-2 at home. Manchester United were able to progress into the Europa League final via an aggregate scoreline of 8-5 after losing the second leg 3-2 in Rome. Continue reading “UNITED DUO IN CONTENTION FOR FULHAM”→

The Red Devils are in the market for a new central defender and White is said to be at the forefront of the centre back transfer options at Old Trafford.
White, 23, had a successful loan spell at Leeds United from the Seagulls last season and the Elland Road outfit wanted to sign him permanently. He was a key player for Leeds United as they secured promotion to the Premier League after almost two decades out of the top flight. Continue reading “£35m SET FOR UNITED TARGET”→
Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has casted a shadow of doubt on the club being able to offer petite forward Paolo Dybala a new deal at the club. Dybala has previously been linked with a move to Manchester United.
Paolo Dybala was a Manchester United target before the club raided Sporting Lisbon to sign talisman Bruno Fernandes in January 2020 and it remains to be seen if the club will make a move for him if he becomes available for a transfer. Dybala will have a year left on his Juventus deal by the summer and as things stand, the Old Lady will have to cash in on him or risk losing him for free next summer.

Three-time European champions Manchester United have lined up a summer move for Watford winger Ismaila Sarr. This is according to the report from the Daily Express which revealed that the Red Devils see Sarr as the alternative for number one target Jadon Sancho as far as reinforcement for the right wing positon at the club is concerned. Manchester United have tried and failed to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga over the last two seasons and the club is expected to try again this summer especially if they are not able to sign his Dortmund teammate Erling Haaland.
Manchester United are one of several clubs in the race to sign Norwegian international Haaland from Dortmund. Apart from the Old Trafford giants, other English teams like Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea are also in the running to sign the player with recent reports revealing that Borussia Dortmund have slapped the asking price of €180m for Haaland. Non-English teams such as Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich also want to sign Erling Haaland in the summer. Continue reading “UNITED TARGET SARR AS SANCHO ALTERNATIVE”→
Manchester United midfielder Donny Van De Beekis reportedly set to hold showdown talks with chief executive Ed Woodward on his situation at the club this season. According to the Daily Star, Van De Beek will meet with the Manchester United official to discuss why he has been ignored by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in his debut season at the club. It was revealed that the player could leave Old Trafford after just one season with the Red Devils. Donny Van De Beek was the biggest signing for Manchester United last summer when the club paid around £38m for his transfer from Dutch club Ajax Amsterdam but his dream move to the Premier League has turned into a nightmare as he rarely features for his team. Van De Beek has been restricted to just two starts under Solskjaer this season and his situation is not likely to get better between now and the rest of the season with the Red Devils fighting for honours in three competitions namely the Premier League, Europa League and the FA Cup.
The most optimistic of Manchester United fans will find it hard to believe that the club can win the Premier League title this season. This is mainly due to the excellent form shown by city rivals and Premier League leaders Manchester City and the inconsistent form of their team. Manchester United were at the Premier League summit many weeks ago but they have not been able to maintain that position on the league standings. While Manchester United have managed to implode from a fantastic position at the top of the table, Manchester City have remained consistent thereby opening up a ten-point lead after 25 games in the league. Manchester City have opened a significant advantage at the Premier League summit with the help of a fantastic winning run. The Citizens have won their last 18 games in all competitions, including 13 wins on the bounce in the league. The last of those wins came on Sunday evening when Raheem Sterling scored the only goal of the match in what was a 1-0 away win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. Manchester City had moved 13 points clear of the Red Devils with the win over the Gunners but Manchester United were able to reduce the gap back to ten points.
During the entirety of the last summer transfer window, a host of players were linked to Manchester United after several reports emerged that the club were in need of replacements for underperforming members of the squad and to also add up squad numbers. Both the ones that the club genuinely had interest to sign and the ones that were never in the picture were all touted as potential transfer targets but, in the end, some of those players were never mentioned anymore.
One of the players that were strongly linked to the Red Devils is Dayot Upamecano. The defender plays for German Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig and has also attracted interest from a lot of top clubs across Europe both in Germany, France, and England. Leipzig’s local rivals Bayern Munich recently joined the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea in what is squaring up to be a hot chase for the French defender.
