Brighton vs Man United: Red Devils may have solved their formation problem

Manchester United will be playing against Newcomers, Brighton in the English premier league today.

But the Red Devils have been worried especially about the kind of formation to use against Brighton.

Looking at the Man United squad, the best way they can beat Brighton is to improve on their defense, which is one area Jose Mourinho had planned to strengthen in the summer transfer window but most of the deal he bided for didn’t see the light of the day.

However, the club have turned their look to one of their defenders, Luke Shaw.

Luke Shaw had some playing time last season owing to the suspension of Ashley Young, the young star performed so well that Jose Mourinho disclosed that there is no better left back like Luke but immediately Ashley resumed, Luke was sent to the bench.

The same thing is about to happen once again especially after Luke gave an awesome performance in the Red Devils opening match against Leicester City.

But the issue is Jose Mourinho will, this time around play Luke Shaw on the right wing, which might turn out to be a problem.

Man Utd have lost 3 times to Brighton, this means there are a thousand reasons to be worried about.

There are suggestions that France international Samuel Umtiti could still end up at the North London outfit Arsenal as he is consistently being linked with the move.

Latest reports have claimed that Samuel Umtiti is already unhappy at the Spanish outfit and could find his way out of the club as soon as the summer transfer window is fully opened.

Samuel Umtiti has been tipped to be a good addition to the North London outfit with space already available for him, knowing that the Unai Emery side seeks to land a quality and experience central defender for next season’s challenge.

Arsenal’s failure to finish in the top-four has been blamed to the fact that they had a shaky defence that could not keep clean sheets in a number of easy games.

However, The Mirror reports that the Spanish side are making a move to land a quality defender which could pose a threat to the starting role of the World Cup winner and that could help land him to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal seek quality and experienced defenders like Samuel Umtiti whose ability is known, especially with his performance at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. He was a major part of the team that won the trophy.

Champions League finalists Liverpool are on the verge of hijacking the transfer for young Brazilian forward Joao Pedro according to widespread media reports.

Liverpool will sign the player from under the noses of fellow Premier League club Watford.

Joao Pedro plays his club football for Brazilian Serie A club Fluminense at the moment.

According to the specific report from Globoesporte, Liverpool will exploit the loophole in his contract at Fluminense to sign the 17-year-old forward.

This is despite the fact that Watford have an agreement in place to sign the player.

For now, the Reds’ attention is on their upcoming Champions League clash with North London giants Tottenham Hotspur in what’s an all-English affair.

Liverpool secured their place in the final via a monumental effort in the second leg of their semifinal tie with Spanish champions Barcelona.

The Reds had trailed 3-0 from the first leg in Spain before three second-half goals gave Liverpool a 4-0 win in the second leg thereby securing the final via a 4-3 aggregate victory.

Liverpool will face Spurs in the final billed for the new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid on the 1st of June with the quest to win a sixth title, while their opponents are looking for a first ever Champions League title.

Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is close to being named the new manager of Italian Serie A champions Juventus according to one of the most trusted journalists in Italian football.

Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri revealed that Juventus will soon appoint the aforementioned Sarri as their manager after they were turned down by Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

According to him, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was their first choice but the Spanish tactician is not ready to swap Manchester for Turin.

It was revealed that Pep Guardiola has turned down the Juventus job three times.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is not assured of his place at the club after a topsy-turvy season at Stamford Bridge and the Juventus job represents a sweet escape from his woes with the West Londoners.

Despite the inconsistent displays that have characterized Chelsea this season, Sarri was able to secure a Champions League return for the Blues after a third-place finish on the Premier League table.

He also led the Blues to two finals, Carabao Cup and the Europa League.

Sarri and Chelsea lost the Europa League final to holders Manchester City via penalties, while they will face London rivals Arsenal in the Europa League final on Wednesday.

Adrien Rabiot

Premier League giants Arsenal and Manchester United are reportedly the front-runners in the keenly contested race to sign Paris Saint Germain (PSG) midfielder Adrien Rabiot during this summer’s transfer window.

This is according to the publication from the stables of The Sun.

Adrien Rabiot is available on a free transfer this summer following the expiration of his PSG contract this summer and several European clubs have been linked with a swoop for him including Chelsea who is expected to sign a new midfielder in the coming weeks.

Chelsea is yet to sign a replacement for Spanish international Cesc Fabregas since he left the club to join French giants AS Monaco in January.

Players like Leandro Paredes (moved from Russian side Zenit St. Petersburg to PSG during the winter transfer window), Nicolo Barella (Cagliari) and Bruno Fernandes (Sporting Lisbon) were linked with a move to Chelsea but nothing came out of those transfer links.

For now, Chelsea is behind both Arsenal and Manchester United in the race to sign French international Adrien Rabiot.

Barcelona were previously the favourites to sign the 24-year-old but their interest has cooled down in recent weeks partly due to the acquisition of Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Frenkie De Jong.

Dutch international De Jong will link up with his Barcelona teammates later this summer.

Marseille striker Mario Balotelli is keen to stay at the club beyond this summer’s transfer window.

The Italian international has been at Marseille since he joined during the winter transfer window.

Mario Balotelli took to his official Instagram page to thank the Marseille fans and officials as he revealed that he won’t hesitate to extend his stay at Stade Velodrome beyond this summer.

The 28-year-old was at OGC Nice until January 2019 when his contract was canceled after falling out with club manager and Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira.

The former Liverpool striker joined Marseille as a free agent during the winter transfer window and went on to score eight goals in 12 games for the French giants.

Mario Balotelli is willing to stay with Marseille despite the fact that they missed out on Champions League football at the end of the just concluded league season.

Marseille would feature in the Europa League instead of Europe’s premier club competition after a fifth-placed finish at the end of the 2018/19 French Ligue 1 season.

The French club missed out on the top three places required to secure Champions League football for next season.

French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG), runners-up Lille and Lyon will represent France in the Champions League next season.

The North London outfit Arsenal boss Unai Emery has been advised by former Tottenham star Darren Anderton on the player he should sign in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners team are all out to add more strength to their squad with claims that manager Unai Emery would be handed approximately £40 million to secure new players.

A number of players have therefore been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium including Wilfried Zaha, Ryan Fraser and Nicolas Pepe, amongst many others.

However, the Gunners boss has been advised by the former Tottenham star to move in for the Bournemouth man Ryan Fraser, noting that he would be a perfect and excellent addition.

Ryan Fraser has a year left to be at Bournemouth which is the best time for the Gunners team to submit a bid for his signature as he is already identified as a player with top-quality after what he did with the Cherries.

According to him, Ryan Fraser can help the Gunners with a top-four finish but noted that he is unsure if he would like to move away from the club anytime soon after recording a level of success and helping the team remain at the top flight.

The North London outfit Arsenal have already registered their interest in the signature of French Ligue 2 outfit Lorient attacking midfielder Alexis Claude-Maurice ahead of the summer transfer window.

However, a report claims that the first bid of £7 million has been submitted for his signature but it was rejected by the French outfit.

Alexis Claude-Maurice is known to be a master in the attacking midfield while he has the ability to play as a winger, a quality that has helped him excel in the Ligue 2, to have caught the attention of a number of top teams.

The star player is known for his power shot which helped him deliver a number of goals and that is expected to convince the Gunners team to return with an improved deal after learning he scored 14 goals and provided four assists for Lorient in 36 games.

Alexis Claude-Maurice is, however, expected to be convinced by Matteo Guendouzi who left the club last summer window to become a first-team player in the Unai Emery team.

However, Alexis Claude-Maurice will suit the budget of the Arsenal team, knowing that manager Unai Emery might not have more than a £40 million to engage in the summer window.

James Rodriguez

The English Premier League outfit Arsenal have been told that Real Madrid star James Rodriguez remains a good deal for the club should they win his signature when the summer transfer window is opened.

James Rodriguez has just completed his two-year loan spell at the German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich. He has got an opportunity to remain at the club but the option has been ignored by the club.

However, it is claimed that James Rodriguez would not be welcomed back to his parent club, Real Madrid as he is not in the plan of manager Zinedine Zidane.

James Rodriguez has been reportedly rejected by Liverpool fans who claim he is being overrated and not good for the club but that cannot be the case for the North London outfit Arsenal, with suggestions that he would be a great addition at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal are set to part ways with Wales international Aaron Ramsey as well as England international Danny Welbeck and James Rodriguez has been tipped to serve as a perfect cover for the two at the club owing to his quality and the roles he can play.

There is no doubt that Arsenal have got good attackers in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette but the addition of James Rodriguez would help them push for titles in the coming season.

The Belgium international Romelu Lukaku has insisted on leaving the English Premier League outfit Manchester United now that the season is ended which means the Red Devils will be short of a striker in the coming season unless there is an addition in the former transfer window.

The Red Devils manager has therefore been told that moving for the signature of French Ligue 1 Lyon striker Moussa Dembele would be a great deal for the club.

Moussa Dembele is believed to cost about 40000 Euros and that is an amount that could be affordable for the Red Devils.

Manager Ole Gunnar solskjaer already has Moussa Dembele in his wish list according to reports. It is therefore stated that the Lyon man will serve as a perfect replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

The 22-year-old netted 20 goals for Lyon this term for a debut season and that is enough evidence to prove that he is fit for the job at the Old Trafford.

With manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looking to strengthen his team ahead of the coming season, there is no doubt that he will find the right quality in the Lyon striker.

However, the rebuilding process for Manchester United starts in the summer transfer window
