Erik ten Hag has had four matches to look at the Manchester United squad and now has a pretty good idea about which players can suit his style of play. During the Asia and Australia pre-season tour, the Dutchman gave minutes to a lot of youngsters to figure out who will stay on as part of the squad and which players need a loan to develop further. Someone who impressed the former Ajax boss was Hannibal Mejbri. He was deployed as an attacking midfielder as well as a striker and impressed with his aggressiveness and his willingness to adapt to…

It’s now been 15 years since Liverpool unveiled their plans to leave Anfield for a new stadium in Stanley Park. In July 2007, under the ownership of Tom Hicks and George Gillett, Liverpool announced their intentions to move into a new 60,000-seater stadium in the north of the city in 2010. It would turn out to be one of three new stadium plans that never happened for Liverpool. 15 years on, the Reds have successfully expanded Anfield, their home since 1892, to a capacity over 53,000, and soon to be 61,000 when work on the Anfield Road End redevelopment is…

FC Barcelona are obsessed with signing Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva, it has been claimed. The 27-year-old has been on Man City’s books since 2017 when he joined from AS Monaco. Since then, Silva has played a key role in Manchester City dominating the English game, especially in 2018/19 when the Portuguese was arguably in the best form of his career as City notched a century of points in the Premier League. However, even though Man City have continued to be the pinnacle of English football, Silva did look to be eyeing an exit this past summer. No exit was forthcoming…

A fresh update on the future of Cristiano Ronaldo has been provided on Sunday. Over the last few weeks, it has been made clear that Cristiano Ronaldo is eyeing a Manchester United exit. The Red Devils’ failure to secure Champions League football last season, coupled with the club’s floundering in the transfer market, is said to have led to Ronaldo wanting to leave Old Trafford. The striker did not return for pre-season training when he was expected to, and did not travel with the rest of United’s squad for their US tour. This leaves the Manchester giants in a bit…

Manchester United  number 9 Anthony Martial is set to stay at Old Trafford for another season, with the Frenchman impressing in pre-season and forcing himself into manager Erik Ten Hag’s plans. United were at one point in the current summer window said to be willing to listen to offers for the France International in an effort to offset his bloated wages from the wage bill. However, in a interesting turn of events, The Telegraph’s James Ducker reports that the 26-year-old has impressed the new boss with his ‘renewed energy’ and his impressive performances on tour. He also said that he…

Manchester United could make an offer for Inter Milan’s Denzel Dumfries in the next week, it has been reported. Dumfries rose to the top of the European game after a successful Euro 2020 campaign. Dumfries lined out for the Netherlands at the most recent European Championships and caught the eye with his marauding runs down the right from a wing-back role. His displays at Euro 2020 would then earn him plenty of attention in the 2021 summer transfer window, in which he made the move from PSV to Inter Milan. The 26-year-old has since continued to impress with Inter, notching…

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is reportedly set to make an offer for Inter Milan full-back and Netherlands International Denzel Dumfries. According to Italian news outlet Gazzetta dello Sport (as per Sport Witness), the United hierarchy is set to make an offer for the Dutch defender in the event that they are able to offload Aaron Wan Bissaka this summer.

This is despite the 26-year-old only joining the club a year…

Barcelona agreed a deal with Bayern Munich for the signing of Robert Lewandowski for £42.5m last weekend. The hitman has since linked up with Barcelona in the US and is expected to be their main striker in 2022/23. Lewandowski may be 33 years of age, but he is in the best form of his career, netting a staggering 50 goals and providing seven assists in all competitions for Bayern in 2021/22. As a result, it is hard to see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who Barcelona signed earlier this year, being afforded too many minutes up front for Barca in the forthcoming campaign.…

Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag is set to coin a huge £3 million bonus if he leads United back into the Champions League, according to The Sun. It seems that United have dangled a mighty big carrot in front of Ten Hag by giving him a chance to land a huge windfall providing he meets the minimum requirements of United’s board. This minimum requirement appears to be getting United back into the Champions League, which would provide the club and Ten Hag more money for future transfers. United would lose £25 million if they miss out on Champions League…
