Paul Merson sends warning to Premier League giants

Merson says Leicester, Everton may make top four push


Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has said that the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United could face competition from Leicester City and Everton in the race for the top four this season.

The Foxes have made a bright start to the current campaign with an unbeaten run and they are presently third on the table with eight points on the board.

On the other hand, the Toffees have already suffered a loss at the hands of Aston Villa, but they are just one point off the Foxes after the opening four games of the season.

Speaking to The Star, Merson said that there is no ‘outstanding team’ after Manchester City and Liverpool and the race for the final two Champions League positions remain very open.

He added that both the Foxes and the Toffees are in a much better shape when compared to the previous campaign and they could provide competition for the Champions League places.

“Leicester are riding partly because Jamie Vardy doesn’t play for England any more and they could do something special this year. Everton have a chance too if they can get themselves going. Getting beat by Villa was a blessing in disguise. I think it woke a few players up,” he said.

Leicester return from the international break with an away game at Manchester United. Everton, meanwhile, entertain Bournemouth at Goodison Park next weekend.

Real Madrid to push for Paul Pogba signing until transfer deadline

Pogba could yet make Real Madrid move this summer


Real Madrid are reportedly prepared to step up their efforts to sign midfielder Paul Pogba ahead of the Premier League transfer deadline next week.

The La Liga giants are permitted to make signings until September 2 but they are aware that the Red Devils won’t consider any offers for Pogba once the transfer window closes in England.

According to AS, Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane continues to remain desperate to land the former Juventus man and the club could be prepared to match United’s £137.2m price tag for the midfielder.

However, the 13-time European champions may need to act at the earliest possibility, considering they need to find a replacement first before sanctioning Pogba’s sale.

Both Bruno Fernandes and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic have been linked with a move to Old Trafford but the former seems the most likely to make the switch to the Mancunian giants before the August 8 deadline.

Manchester United are also looking into a move to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City but they are yet to find an agreement with the Foxes wanting around £90m for the centre-back.
