Pundit claims this Man Utd star will leave in the summer

ESPN FC pundit Shaka Hislop has warned Manchester United that they will lose Luke Shaw at the end of the current Premier League campaign. The Englishman’s contract is set to expire in the summer with reports that Arsenal and Chelsea are both monitoring his situation. United are said to be interested in renewing his contract but negotiations have yet to begun, leaving some fans worried. Shaw can certainly still become a legend at the club should he wish to be and he has done enough to earn an extension on his current contract. Hislop though believes that Luke will leave the Red Devils but that it won’t be a move to London to join the Gunners and Arsene Wenger. According to the Daily Star, Shaka said: “Without question, Jose Mourinho’s comments [on Shaw] are with the view

Timothy Fosu-Mensah is set for one hell of a competition next season in his attempt to win a consistent place in the Manchester United starting XI. The Dutch star was loaned out to Crystal Palace this Premier League campaign as Jose Mourinho wished to get him the game time he deserved. There’s no better experience than staying in the same division and he’s pretty much set up to return straight into the first team next season with a better chance of winning his place at the club. The question is where will Fosu-Mensah play? A quite stereotypically versatile footballer from the Netherland, he can play as a right-back, centre-back, defensive midfielder and central midfielder. For the London club though he’s mainly operated in their defence with the appearance stats leaning ...

Real Madrid prepare £177m bid for Manchester City’s £200k-per-week star - originally posted on Sportslens.com According to Don Balon, Real Madrid are planning to make Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne their club record signing in the summer. Gareth Bale is Real’s most expensive purchase at £95m, but the Belgian could surpass that in the coming months. With Luke Modric turning 33 later this year, a world-class midfield reinforcement is needed in the transfer market, and few deep-lying players are better than City’s Belgian international. De Bruyne has scored and created 21 goals in 27 Premier League games for the Sky Blues this season and also averages a tackle and interception every 36 minutes. The 26-year-old is a Player of the Season contender as a result of h

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho believes Scott McTominay has been heavily underrated by fans, lauding him with praise following the 2-0 win over Huddersfield in the fifth round of the FA Cup. The midfielder featured from the start of the match, much to the delight of supporters as he played in a satisfactory manner. McTominay got promoted to the first team this season having impressed with the club’s academy and Mourinho has certainly grown to love him. Expected to play a backup role, the youngster has found himself playing more and more often as the season goes by with things heating up. It’s no surprise considering how much his Portuguese manager rates him, calling on Scotland’s manager to pick Scott for the first team as well. According to Metro, Jose said to MUT...

Man Utd star insists he feels good amid Madrid rumours

It appears that Manchester United’s David de Gea can’t escape the Real Madrid rumours but he has insisted that at the moment he feels good at the club. The Spanish giants have been heavily linked with the goalkeeper who many assume is the best in the world but it appears that he’s attempting to cool down interest. United fans have a faulty fax machine to thank for not losing De Gea to Madrid and after that transfer fiasco he signed a new deal, remaining committed to the club. The Spaniard has shown incredible professionalism since what happened and has continued excelling to fulfil his true potential. Now Real have seemingly reignited their interested in him once more but rather than discuss what may happen in the future, he chose to focus on the present. According to Ca...

Manchester United’s Matteo Darmian may be set to leave the club as Juventus are reportedly interested in signing him and have made a serious move for him. The Italian has struggled to impose himself at Old Trafford and it appears he’s finally on his way out of the club under Jose Mourinho’s management. Darmian was brought in by Louis Van Gaal as he looked to address the United’s need for defensive reinforcements, particularly at a time when Antonio Valencia was still struggling with adjusting to the full-back position. Fans knew they weren’t getting the most attacking right-back in the world but were pleased to finally have a capable defender in their team. However, the former Torino man failed to impress even in that regard and Mourinho is aiming to overhaul...

Moura Coming off the back of a great draw in Turin against Juventus, Tottenham Hotspur were going into their FA Cup tie against League One side Rochdale with Harry Kane an injury doubt and not starting the game, and their motivation in the cup competition already having been questioned. After their replay in the previous round, Mauricio Pochettino made it clear he wanted his players to take the cup more seriously, despite earlier in the season playing down the importance of the Carabao Cup and FA Cup himself. So when they went a goal down to Rochdale, and had a pretty abysmal first half, people weren’t impressed and it was hard to blame them. Then, Lucas Moura decided to step up and show what he’s made of, and levelled things up for them. They should’ve been a couple more...

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that Michael Carrick will need replacement at the end of this Premier League season. The veteran is set to retire after the current campaign and is aiming to join the club’s backroom staff after his manager’s insistence. Mourinho is intelligently still looking to make use of Carrick’s experience and knowledge of the club even after he’s no longer a player. The Englishman has had some fitness issues this season but has recently returned to the first team much to the delight of fans. For supporters, this is their last season of seeing Michael doing what he does best and he will surely be sorely missed but his manager is looking to the future. According to The Sport Review, Jose said to Sky Sports: “We need to...
