Declan Rice news

Rice open to future United move?


West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice has said that he has the credentials to play for Manchester United but he is not prepared for the challenge at the current point of time.

The England international has made impressive progress with the Hammers over the past year and he is now regarded as one of the constants in the national setup.

As such, there has been speculation linking him with a move to the Red Devils and speaking to Four Four Two, he has acknowledged that he would be tempted to join the club in the future.

“Don’t get me wrong, I think I’ve got the ability to play for a club like that. But it’s all about the timing and I don’t think the timing is right for me at all. I’ve still got so much to learn,” he told.

Rice has made three appearances for the England national side since switching his allegiance from the Republic of Ireland. He is expected to feature in the forthcoming games against Bulgaria and Kosovo.

Manchester United confirm their third signing of the transfer window

Harry Maguire news

Maguire signs for Manchester United


Manchester United have completed their third signing of the summer transfer window with defender Harry Maguire joining them from Leicester City.

The England international has penned a six-year deal with the Red Devils after they agreed on a world-record £80m fee for a central defender.

“I am delighted to have signed for this great club. I am now looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and getting the season started,” he told the club’s official website.

United had been desperate to pursue Maguire from the beginning of July, but they could not strike a deal with the Foxes, who were reluctant to reduce their £80m price tag.

Ultimately, the Mancunian giants had to bow to the demands of Brendan Rodgers‘ side and it remains to be seen whether the 26-year-old can hit the ground running from the off.

Aside from Maguire, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side have landed the services of winger Daniel James and right-back Aaron Wan Bissaka from Swansea City and Crystal Palace respectively this summer.

Manchester United are scheduled to host Chelsea at Old Trafford in the Premier League opener on Sunday and Maguire could make his debut alongside Victor Lindelof at the heart of the defence.

Cahill on cusp of Arsenal free transfer move?


Arsenal have tabled their first offer to sign free agent Gary Cahill. The 33-year-old defender, whose contract with former club Chelsea expired last season, has received offers from Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and now the Gunners are the most recent option that the former England international has to pick from.

After seven years with the Blues, Cahill opted to leave Stamford Bridge in favour of a move elsewhere. Today it has emerged that Arsenal manager Unai Emery wants to sign Gary Cahill as a backup centre-back for Rob Holding, who is expected to emerge back in to the first-team this season once he has fully recovered from injury. Unai Emery is also set to sell Shkodran Mustafi in the next three weeks and it is understood that Cahill is wanted not just as an important member of the squad, but also to help educate and teach the young Holding. Interestingly, both Holding and Cahill both came through the ranks at Bolton.

It is understood that Arsenal are now clear favourites to wrap up a deal for Cahill and that a one year contract is on the table at the Emirates.

Jurgen Klopp news


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is delighted with his club’s efforts in the summer transfer window, having kept hold of his best players for yet another season. The Champions League winners have not been as active in the window as their rivals, but Klopp insists that is more important than bringing in new faces.

Liverpool have managed to keep hold of Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk despite rumours of their departures.

Klopp quipped: “It is a bonus just keeping these guys together for another year. We wanted to, they absolutely deserve it, and it means consolidation, pay the bills, play football, go for everything.

“Only in England, do you come up with new faces and to bring in more quality. But that was never the intention because we have a wonderful age group and they deserve to stay together.

Divock Origi has a new contact and all the others have stayed – that is the transfer business I like. People may smile or laugh about it, but keeping a team like this together is not easy.”

Celtic boss Lennon discuss Tierney to Arsenal transfer situation

Tierney to make Arsenal move next week?


Celtic manager Neil Lennon has revealed that the club are still waiting to hear back from Arsenal regarding a transfer for left-sided defender Kieran Tierney, who has been linked with a move to the North London club for a fee of £24 million. The Scotsman is comfortable playing on the left or centre of defence.

Arsenal have had a busy period in the transfer window, signing Nicolas Pepe for a club record fee and securing a deal for Dani Ceballos on loan from Real Madrid.

Celtic are unhappy that their valuation has yet to have been met, but Arsenal are expected to seal a deal for the defender before the transfer window slams shut.

“Obviously the window in England shuts on Thursday,” said Celtic manager Lennon.

“It can be an unsettling period for any player. We have rejected two bids and the clubs know the valuation that we value Kieran [Tierney] at and it’s not been met.

“He is dealing with it very well. We are living in an age now where it’s coming at you from all angles, especially on social media.

“He is only 22. We have to be mindful of that as well. He is trying to keep his feet on the ground and stay focused on the present.”

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.

Drinkwater to remain with Chelsea
Football Transfer Centre


England international Danny Drinkwater is set to stay with Chelsea beyond the summer transfer window, considering the club have not received any suitable offers.

The midfielder has made just 23 appearances since making the switch from Leicester City in 2017 and just one of those came during the previous campaign.

According to Evening Standard, Lampard had been eager to offload the midfielder on a permanent basis this summer, but there have been no concrete offers from the player’s suitors.

The Blues still have the option of loaning out the 29-year-old for the season but reports indicate that he may now remain at Stamford Bridge until January at the least.

Drinkwater has featured in the pre-season games under Lampard this term, but there are no assurances of regular gametime when the real season begins next month.

Chelsea begin their Premier League campaign with a challenging trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on August 11. Three days later, they have a UEFA Super Cup clash against Jurgen Klopp‘s Liverpool.

Dybala: no longer heading to England


Tottenham and Man Utd target Paulo Dybala has told Juventus that he wants to stay at the club and fight for his future. The Argentina international had been linked with a move to England this summer, having seen his first-team opportunities at the club slip away last campaign.

Spurs were reportedly in pole position to sign the player but Mauricio Pochettino will be left very disappointed with the latest news that Dybala intends to stay in Turin.

It is understood that the striker was offered as a part of a potential deal to sign Romelu Lukaku from Juventus, but that deal appears to be dead in the water. Dybala is valued at around £75 million by Juve, a transfer fee that Tottenham are ready to pay outright for the player. Yet it is understood that Dybala has no interest in a move to White Hart Lane.

Newly appointed manager Maurizio Sarri has held talks with Dybala regarding the striker’s future at the club, and has indicated that the player can fight for a spot in the first team next year.
