“I believe if the right offer comes along for Pogba and for Juve, then the transfer will take place. But the biggest challenge will be for theBianconeri club to rebuild the team with that money.”

The 29 year old moved from Ligue 1 outfit Monaco to Old Trafford last summer and has failed to make any major impact to earn a permanent deal. Manager Louis van Gaal barely plays the forward and would not be interested in spending a huge sum of £43m to sign him on a permanent basis.

Reports in Spain further state that the Dutchman has told Monaco that the striker will be returning back to France, once the current season is over. Falcao’s agent Jorge Mendes is however looking to set up a deal which would see him make the move to Anfield, before the start of the next season. Since his move to the Premier League, the former Atletico Madrid superstar has made 22 appearances for the Red Devils and has managed to score just four times.

“Plz Don’t Sell Me” Manchester United Superstar Tells Louis van Gaal That He Does Not Wish To Leave The Club

Angel di Maria has told Premier League giants Manchester United that he wishes to stay at Old Trafford and does not want to leave anytime soon. The Argentine international was expected to leave England at the end of the current campaign, as he did not have the best debut season. The 27-year-old former Real Madrid forward moved to Manchester for £59.7m last summer and has failed to live up to expectations. He has been in poor form and does not currently feature in manager Louis van Gaal’s starting eleven.

His form has not been the only concern and problems in his personal life have added to speculations of a possible exit from the club. However, The Sunday People now report that Di Maria has told van Gaal he is happy and has well settled at the centre of Manchester and wishes to stay. The People further added that the superstar winger spoke to the big guns at the club, as they had concerns about a possible exit and has now ensured everyone that he is committed and will not be leaving.

BREAKING! French Midfielder To Ditch Manchester United And Chelsea To Join Arsenal

The TuttoMercatoWeb reports that Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin would prefer a move to Arsenal over their Premier League rivals Manchester United and Chelsea. The 25-year-old midfield superstar is one best box-to-box midfielders, at the moment and has played an important role in Ronald Koeman’s Southampton, during the course of this campaign.

Reports from Italy further stated that both the English giants were interested in completing a move for the highly-rated midfielder, ahead of their north London rivals. However, Schneiderlin was more attracted by the prospect of joining his compatriot Arsene Wenger’s side. The Gunners have been adding some high-quality players to their squad in the recent years and will look to bring the French international to the Emirates too. The prospect of playing in the Champions League on a regular basis might also under the midfield powerhouse to move away from the Saints, though a deal has not been completed yet. 

Gary Neville: “Manchester United Are Playing Better Than Chelsea”

Former Manchester United defender and pundit Gary Neville said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football that he expects Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma to start against his former side. The Blues welcome the Red Devils at Stamford Bridge on Saturday in a game, which will surely have an impact on the title race. Neville said thatUnited are playing better than Chelsea at the moment but he expects Jose Mourinho to bring Zouma into the starting eleven to play alongside Nemanja Matic and look to close down the United attacks. He also added that the Frenchman has a physical presence of his own, which could help the home side keep hold of the ball and added,

“I think his first thought will be destruction, how I’m going to stop them and how am I going to win the game.”

“I think Zouma coming in is a good point he’ll play alongside Matic and sacrifice himself in the game.”

“That will give them Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Matic, Zouma, Drogba potentially and he’ll think I can win this game with a moment of magic from Hazard or set-pieces.”

“His team aren’t playing very well, United are playing better than them at this moment in time but he’ll stop that pattern on the left or he’ll want to and more often than not when he pays attention to things he does.”

Which Of These Two Superstar Defenders Should Manchester United Sign This Summer?

Mats Hummels linked With Arsenal

Manchester United have been linked with the purchase of a new defender to lead the defence, after a torrid season in which United have struggled to find a leader to replace stalwarts Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, after their departures earlier this season. Both were adjudged too old to cope with the intensity of United’s game, and were replaced with talent waiting in the wings – Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans and Phil Jones.

Fans have long hoped and waited for them to live up to expectations, earlier using the fact that Ferdinand and Vidic were stalling their progress, but are now having to deal with the truth – that none of them might be as good as the earlier defensive rearguards that United had. With their constant breakdowns, injuries and inexplicable inconsistency, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind were purchased to add solidity to the back. All of the players mentioned above were too fresh-faced and lacked enough exposure to the Premier League, for any one of them to assert his ability to marshal the defence.

United missed a trick by not investing in a leader, but there were virtually no defensive leaders in the market then. Over the course of this season, the need for a leader has been highlighted, as if it were thought that one of the current players would grow into the role, none of them have remained injury-free or shown a continuous run of form to hold down a starting berth. Now that Borussia Dortmund have had a tumultuous season, Mats Hummels’ future remains up in the air, while Miranda’s composure at the back while representing Atletico Madrid has not escaped United’s scouts.

Mats Hummels has been linked with a host of top clubs across England – with Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United among his suitors. Until the beginning of the season, he pledged his loyalty to Dortmund, but Dortmund might not be contesting in Europe next season, which could motivate a move to a club competing in the UEFA Champions League, in which Manchester United are more than likely to be participating. Questions have arisen over his leadership skills, as he was not able to lead Dortmund out of a slump in which they were shipping goals cheaply earlier this season, and Manchester United are in need of a leader who can show heart and handle pressure, without being sidelined.

He is a popular figure, and will endear himself to the fans, an example of which is the moment when he was appeasing the fans after a debilitating defeat, with Roman Weidenfeller at the Signal Iduna Park earlier this season.

Miranda has thrived at Atletico Madrid, as United were earlier in pursuit of his defensive partner, Diego Godin, who is younger, stronger, and whom the club was unwilling to sell. To circumvent the issue, United are seemingly pursuing Miranda, who is more likely to be sold by Atletico, as they have had one of the meanest defences in Europe, which rarely concedes goals against strong opposition, considering they face the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid at least twice a season each.

Having adjusted to the La Liga, an issue could crop up with his ability to cope with the change from the Spanish game, which is slower and allows more room for tackles, to the English game, which is faster and more physical. He will be able to handle the pressure and put in long, consistent shifts in United’s defence, which is exactly what United need at this point in time, instead of the chipping and chopping witnessed at United’s backline this season.

Any of the two players would add leadership, calm and consistency to a United defence which has struggled to stay the same from game to game this season. Miranda brings experience, which will hold him in good stead, but is 30, which means that he will lose pace in a matter of time. Mats Hummels has age on his side, but he might fall prey to the pressure which comes along with representing one of the most popular clubs in the world.

United would do well to procure any of these players early in the summer, so that the player chosen has a bedding-in period in which he can adjust to the players around him.

 

REPORT: Manchester United’s Brazilian Target Recieves A New Offer From Barcelona

Barcelona are currently having a transfer ban on them and do not have the luxury of buying or selling players. They were careless about certain regulations regarding Fifa’s rules on the buying of players aged under 18. Now they have to work with the resources that are already available to them. One superstar that could be on the verge of leaving the Catalan club would be 31-year-old right-back Dani Alves.

The Brazilian has a contract with the club which is set to expire in June. There have been talks going on regarding a new deal, but nothing has materialized yet. Recent rumours have linked him with a move away from the club and Premier League giants Manchester United have shown interest in signing him. Manager Louis van Gaal is unhappy with his current options and will look to bring him to Old Trafford, in the summer. The player’s ex-wife and Ms 15% Dinorah Santana had talks with the La Liga outfit and  recently said,

“On Monday, I had a meeting with [Barcelona suit] Javier Bordad,” she explained. “On Wednesday I have had the second meeting. I have already received an offer, although I can’t say if I am happy or not. There will be more meetings. They told me they will call me to arrange the next one.”
