Wilson to Manchester United?


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly keen on recruiting the services of Callum Wilson from Bournemouth this winter.

The 27-year-old has become a vital figure for the Cherries after overcoming his regular injury concerns and he has made 26 goalscoring contributions since the start of the previous season.

According to The Sun, Solskjaer is keen to continue with the trend of pursuing young and hungry British players and Wilson has emerged as a potential target for the winter transfer window.

United currently have Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial as the only senior striking options following the departure of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan – the latter on a season-long loan.

Martial has been sidelined for the past few weeks with a thigh problem and this has practically left Solskjaer with just Marcus Rashford to depend upon for the centre-forward duties.

United graduate Mason Greenwood has been regularly talked up for a starting role but so far, Solskjaer has resisted the temptation of utilising the teenager from the beginning.

James Maddison news

Maddison to Man United?
Football Transfer Centre


Manchester United are reportedly planning to swoop for the services of James Maddison from Leicester City when the season comes to a close.

Maddison has been a top signing for the Foxes since arriving from Norwich City in the summer of 2018 and he has already contributed seven goals and nine assists for the club in the Premier League.

His progress has certainly caught the attention of the Red Devils and The Manchester Evening News claims that they could make an approach for Madisson at the end of the campaign.

United are desperately in the need for a creative midfielder in the ranks but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be forced to wait until next summer to land Maddison, given the Foxes are unlikely to sanction a mid-season sale.

Maddison, who started his career with Coventry City, has been called up to the England national team on a couple of occasions, but on both instances, he has failed to earn any gametime under Gareth Southgate.

Man United considered Pickford move


Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was reportedly a target for Manchester United during the recently-concluded summer transfer window.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had to contend with the uncertainty surrounding David de Gea‘s future during the off-season and it had been predicted that he could head for an exit with his contract expiring in the summer of 2020.

However, that was certainly not the case with De Gea staying put but The Athletic claims Pickford was earmarked as a probable replacement for the Spain international.

De Gea has come under criticism from his own supporters for the average performances this year but he has nonetheless retained the trust from his teammates and the head coach.

He has just 11 months remaining on his existing deal with the club but reports indicate they are close to rewarding the shot-stopper with a new and improved contract worth £290,000-a-week.

Manchester United are currently eighth on the league table with five points on the board. They are scheduled to entertain Leicester City at Old Trafford this weekend.
