Manchester United Could Get Muller, Robben And Cash For £60million Flop

Manchester United Could Get Muller, Robben And Cash For £60million Flop

Bayern Munich are reportedly desperate to sign Manchester Unitedmidfielder Angel di Maria, and are considering offering the Old Trafford club Arjen RobbenThomas Muller and cash for the Argentine.

Di Maria struggled to make an impression in his first season in the Premier League, and United are considering allowing him to leave after spending £60million on him last year.

According to the Daily MailBayern Munich are the most likely suitors and Pep Guardiola is willing to do business with the Red Devils, involving several players that they have targeted in the past, such as Robben and Muller.

United have also been linked with Bastian Schweinsteiger this summer, but it is thought that Muller is now Van Gaal’s first choice target from the Bayern squad.

Meanwhile, Robben would be an ideal replacement for Di Maria to play on the wing in what could be a talent-packed midfield next season.

Asamoah Gyan transfer could boost Sunderland’s bank balance

Asamoah Gyan

Sunderland could be in line for a windfall if former striker Asamoah Gyan completes a big money move to China.

The Black Cats just managed to make back their £12million investment in Gyan when they sold him to Middle Eastern outfit Al-Ain three years ago after the Ghanaian striker had enjoyed a season-long loan spell with the club.
Despite Sunderland spending big to bring him to the Premier League, Gyan hankered after a £6million-a-year deal in the UAE and the Black Cats opted to cut their losses on the frontman.
Gyan has remained at Al-Ain ever since, but there has been speculation this week that the 29-year-old is on the verge of joining Chinese side Shanghai SIPG in a £14m deal.
Reports in the Middle East have also indicated that there is a sell-on clause due to Sunderland in Gyan’s contract with Al-Ain, which could see the Black Cats net as much as 20 per cent of any transfer fee.
Shanghai boss and former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson refused to be drawn on the Gyan speculation before today’s match against Guangzhou R&F.
“I will not comment on Gyan today because my focus is on the game and this press conference is not the appropriate place to discuss it,” he said.
However, reports in the Chinese press suggest Gyan could undergo a medical in Shanghai this week, before penning a big-money contract.

Arsenal lead Chelsea in the race to sign young forward from La Liga giants

Arsene Wenger wants to add more attacking options to his squad, with the hopes of posing a serious challenge for the Premier League title next season. Keeping that in mind, the Arsenalboss wants to focus on reinforcing his attacking depth ahead of the upcoming campaign.
Now that German World Cup winning forward Lukas Podolski has joined Turkish giants Galatasaray, Wenger is desperate to add Barcelona’s 19-year-old winger Munir El Haddadi to the Gunners’ squad.
Munir is one of the many fine young prospects that the Frenchman is targeting at the moment for the north London side.
The only reason the Spanish international is benched at the Nou Camp is due to the fact that the Catalan club has world-class attackers up front like Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez. It is for this reason that Munir is keen on moving away, to secure some first team football, according to The Daily Express.
It has also been reported that the Gunners were the first to approach Luis Enrique regarding the youngster and Chelsea’s interest in the player has gone cold in recent times

Mourinho 'agrees new contract'

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has committed his long-term future to the London club after reportedly agreeing a new four-year contract on Tuesday.

The 52-year-old is said to have turned down a significant pay rise, and the deal will be confirmed ahead of the start of the 2015/16 Premier League campaign.
This after the Portuguese tactician steered the Blues to the league title and the Football League Cup glory.
In an interview with the Sun, an unnamed source said: "It has been an easy deal to do.
"Jose said he's happy on the same money as before so we're just extending the contract by two years. Everyone's delighted."

Arsenal closing in on PedroArsenal closing in on PedroArsenal closing in on Pedro

Arsenal are inching closer to a summer deal for Barcelona forward Pedro, according to reports.

The Spain international signed a new contract extension to extend his stay at the Catalan giants until the summer of 2019.
Arsenal closing in on Pedro

However, this has not deterred the Gunners' pursuit of the talented winger, who has been on the fringes of the first-team at Camp Nou in recent seasons.

Reports in Spain cite that the Gunners are in crunch talks with the player's representatives over a possible summer move.

It is understood that the North London giants would have to spend a fee of at least £25m to land the Spaniard's signature, as the new deal has increased his transfer value.

Verbal Agreement in Place: Man Utd Close in on Superstar Signing

Tottenham fans will be devastated yet again if one of their key players is sold this summer, that too to a Premier League rival team.
Spurs sold the likes of Bale and Modric and they are still missed at White Hart Lane being never replaced. Now, it seems that the North Londoners may lose their star goal keeper Hugo Lloris to Manchester United.
It looks highly likely that United’s very own star goalie David de Gea is set to depart this summer and reports suggest that Lloris is their priority signing if the Spaniard does leave Old Trafford.
As per the provided Metro link, French source L’Equipe claim that United are closing in as negotiations are going on over a £25million move for the French star.
The mentioned price tag is actually contradicting as Star reported that as per L’Equipe there is a verbal agreement in place between Lloris and Tottenham chairman Levy that the Les Bleus star will be sold if a club paid €25million i.e. £17.8million to hire his services.
We shall see how the saga unfolds. No matter what the price tag is, United will have to sign a World Class goalie to replace someone who was their best player last season.

David de Gea warned he’ll become a HATE figure if he signs for Real Madrid

David de Gea warned he’ll become a HATE figure if he signs for Real Madrid

Former Atletico Madrid defender Tomas Ujfalusi has warned his ex-teammate David de Gea that signing for Real Madrid this summer will turn him into a hate figure, the Daily Star reports.
The Manchester United stopper is said to be desperate to head back to the Spanish capital this summer and is expected to complete a move to Real should the two clubs agree a fee.
De Gea was spotted in Madrid earlier this week, but insisted that he was only there for a short holiday before the pre-season campaign gets underway next week.
But former Czech Republic international Ujfalusi, who lined up alongside the goalkeeper during their time together at the Vicente Calderon, has warned him to think twice before rushing into a deal to join Los Blancos.
Ujfalusi believes the fans that once loved him would never forgive him for switching allegiances.
“It’s not going to be easy for him to make this decision,” he said.
“It’s also a surprise for me because he’s an Atletico Madrid fan – when he was young his heart was with Atletico Madrid.”

Roma confirm interest in Dzeko

Edin Dzeko: Roma interested - but put off by asking price

Roma have confirmed their interest in signing Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko this summer - but admit a deal is some distance from being agreed.
Bosnian striker Dzeko is thought to be surplus to requirements at the Etihad Stadium after a four-year stay at the club and Roma have been rumoured as a possible destination.
Dzeko cost City £27million when he moved from Wolfsburg in 2011 and it is thought City want to recoup a similar amount.
The transfer fee is proving to be a bit of a sticking point, despite Roma's sporting director Walter Sabatini confirming their interest in Dzeko.
"Dzeko is not very close, but Roma are trying to get him," Sabatini confirmed. "He's the right man for us, but tough to get, as he's expensive."
Meanwhile, Sabatini has confirmed that former Arsenal winger Gervinho will now not be leaving Roma after the collapse of his move to Al-Jazira.
The Ivory Coast forward’s move to Abu Dhabi collapsed earlier in the week, with allegations that he had demanded a helicopter and private beach as part of his transfer. Both player and club have denied these rumours and Gervinho will now return to the Stadio Olimpico.
Sabatini added: "No [Gervinho doesn't want to move]. He changed his mind and wants to stay with us now."

[Image] Arsenal’s new signing begins pre-season training

Arsenal’s teenage signing Vlad Dragomir has already started his pre-season training at our London Colney training base as he looks to make an impression following his recent move.
Dragomir joined us last month for a reported €100,000 after we beat Inter Milan in the race for his signature (via the Mirror).
The Romania U-16 captain is highly rated and given that we signed Krystian Bielik in January, our scouts have obviously identified Eastern-Europe as a hotspot for new talent.
It remains to be seen whether or not Arsene Wenger will allow the teenager to train with the first team in pre-season, something he usually does when he has a prestigious talent on his hands.
An admirable trait our club adheres to is that we’re constantly looking to the future, but many will be expecting Wenger to address some areas of his senior squad in order for us to challenge for the Premier League title.
The signing of Petr Cech was a major coup, but we realistically need a couple more if we’re to possess a squad that can last the distance.

Copa America Final – The hosts take on the favourites in Santiago showdown

Copa America Final – The hosts take on the favourites in Santiago showdown

In a Copa America which has had its fair share of star quality as well as a couple of major controversies, the two most consistent sides contest the final on Saturday evening, with Chile looking to win the competition for the first time ever on home turf facing an Argentina team that will be desperate to end its 22-year wait for a major trophy.
Even with home advantage, Chile have more than confirmed their status as one of the emerging forces of international football by making a relatively serene passage to the final, sailing through Group A before knocking out defending champions Uruguay in a tumultuous encounter, and then Eduardo Vargas producing two moments of magic to see off Peru – who have done brilliantly to achieve third place – in the last four.
Vargas will be key to his side’s hopes here, but their main attacking threat will always come from Alexis Sanchez thanks to his relentless energy and unpredictability. However, the most important area for Chile – on what is arguably the biggest day in their footballing history – is the defence, where Gary Medel and veteran Jose Rojas will surely need shielding from the array of attacking talent that La Albiceleste possess. Holding midfielder Charles Aranguiz must ensure those behind him are not left exposed.
So far, Gerardo Martino has done a fine job in leading Argentina to the final, but victory is the only expectation for a team that still has regrets over losing out at last year’s World Cup and indeed in numerous other finals in the last decade. In the semi-finals they certainly did seem unstoppable, knocking six past a previously unflappable Paraguay in a tremendous attacking performance, more than making up for their mini capitulation against the same opponents in the opening round of group matches.

Arsenal star set for imminent exit with medical already booked

Arsenal star set for imminent exit with medical already booked

Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski looks to be heading for the exit door after Galatasaray confirmed that the German is set to undergo a medical with them on Saturday afternoon, the Turkish club’s official website reported.
Podolski spent the second half of last season on loan at Inter Milan where he endured a tough time after only netting once during his stay in Italy.
Despite undergoing a medical, Galatasaray have confirmed that negotiations are still ongoing, but one would suspect that those talks will become a formality given that Podolski has been allowed to travel to Istanbul.
Podolski split the opinion of the fans during his Arsenal career with some refusing to comprise their expectations of a professional footballer regardless of his crucial talent.
The 30-year-old has a lethal left foot – arguably the best in Europe – and could often drag us out of a predicament with one clean swing.
However, if that opportunity didn’t present itself, Podolski was useless. Refusing to help the team defensively while also struggling to integrate into our possession game, it became clear that the former Bayern man wouldn’t develop into the player we needed him to become.
Clearly a loveable character in the dressing, we wish ‘Poldi’ the best of luck in the future.

Manchester City Set To Meet Liverpool’s 50m Valuation Of Raheem Sterling Following Lifting Of FFP Sanctions


Manchester City will come back with an offer closer to Liverpool FC’s valuation of Raheem Sterling and their other targets after Uefa removed its restrictions ontransfers and wages imposed as part of its Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.

The Raheem Sterling saga is finally coming to a close as per reports in the the Times, with Manchester City set to beat Real Madrid, Manchester UnitedChelsea FC, andArsenal FC to the Liverpool FC winger.
Manchester City had two previous bids of 30 million and 40 million GBP rejected. They are now expected to comeback with an offer closer to the 50 million GBP valuation of Liverpool FC as Uefa lifted their restrictions on transfers and wages imposed on the club as part of its Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules as per the Times
Real Madrid, Chelsea FC, Arsenal FC, and Liverpool FC’s hated rivals Manchester United were all interested in the player who scored 7 goals and recorded 8 assists in the 2014-15 Premier League season. But, they were put off by Liverpool FC’s 50 million GBP valuation of the player.
The Liverpool FC winger had two years remaining to his contract and his value is set to dwindle in the coming twelve months.
The player had made clear his desire to leave the Merseyside giants in recent months citing the reason to join a more competitive team which can help him win trophies regularly.
Manchester City are also confident of signing Wolfsburg, who could cost around 35 million GBP, despite Wolfsburg offering the former Chelsea FC man a new contract.
De Bruyne, 23, has been in sensational form for Wolfsburg following his €20 million move from Chelsea FC and is being pursued by a host of European Clubs, most notably, Manchester City, who are looking to sign de Bruyne to revamp their midfield following a disappointing season.
Kevin De Bruyne, who was also named as Bundesliga player of the year defeating the likes of Manuel Neuer and Arjen Robben to the title, played more accurate through balls than any other player in the Bundesliga and at 111 chance created, was ahead of Eden Hazard of Chelsea FC as the second best across the top 5 Leagues in Europe.
If Manchester City do manager to sign, both, Liverpool FC winger Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne from Wolfsburg, they certainly will have an incredibly creative and goal scoring midfield to challenge Chelsea FC for the league title.

Saidy JankoManchester United have allowed their defender Saidy Janko to leave Old Trafford and join Celtic on Wednesday.
The teenager joined the Red Devils from FC Zurich in 2013 and spent most part of his time away from the Red Devils’ first team. He was part of United squad and made one senior appearance during their 4-0 defeat to MK Dons in the Capital One Cup last August.
Janko has joined Celtic on a permanent transfer and signed a new four-year contract.
“Saidy Janko is to sign for Celtic after agreeing a four-year contract with the ScottishPremier League champions,” a statement read on United’s official website.
“The Swiss right-back, who spent the end of last season on loan with BoltonWanderers, is expected to finalise the move once routine medical results are received.”
“A former winner of the Denzil Haroun Reserve Player of the Year award, the 19-year-old joined the club from FC Zurich in 2013 and made one appearance for the first team – in the Capital One Cup defeat to Milton Keynes Dons last August. Everybody at United would like to wish Saidy the best of luck in his future career.”
Janko joins Danny Welbeck, Shinji Kagawa, Michael Keane, Marnick Vermijl, Anderson, Wilfried Zaha, Ben Amos and Tom Cleverley as host of players, who were part of the squad in the defeat to MK Dons, to be shown the exit door by Louis van Gaal.
Van Gaal has already made his intentions clear and the players, who are not included in his plans at United are all offloaded. They could be joined by few other fringe players, who could make a move away from Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez should be fit to return towards the end of pre-season after having surgery on his fractured collarbone.
Hernandez, who spent last season on loan at Real Madrid, was operated on in Houston on Thursday after he was injured in a friendly between Mexico and Honduras.
'Chicharito' will miss the upcoming Gold Cup because of the injury, being played in the United States and Canada between July 7 and 26.
"Javier Hernandez's surgery ended successfully. The player is in post-operative recovery," read a statement from the Mexican football federation.
The squad's physician Gerardo Aguilar added: "Javier Hernandez underwent a successful operation this morning... He had two plates inserted in his right collarbone fixed with six screws.
"The prognosis is quite acceptable and there are very high expectations for his rapid recovery, which is expected will be four weeks."
The 27-year-old has scored 59 goals in 154 outings for United and has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, including talk of a move to Serie A with Juventus or Inter Milan.

Manquillo may leave Liverpool

Image result for javier Manquillo loan deal
Liverpool are discussing whether to terminate Javier Manquillo's loan deal and send him back to Atletico Madrid a year early, according to reports.
The 21-year-old right-back joined on a two-year loan deal last summer and made 19 appearances, but he did not play a single Premier League game after December.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has recently signed two new right-backs; Nathaniel Clyne from Southampton and Joe Gomez from Charlton - and is considering his options as he reshapes his squad.
He has also handed a new long-term deal to young right-back Andre Wisdom and Sky sources reported at the end of last month that England U19 international Gomez is also under consideration for a loan.
The Liverpool Echo report Manquillo would not be averse to the idea of moving on, either back to Atletico or to another club.
Manquillo made 10 Premier League starts in the first half of last season. He made nine first team appearances for Atletico prior, having made his way through their youth ranks.
He has also represented every level of Spain's youth system from U16 to U21, but is yet to appear for the seniors.
