Italian Serie A champions Juventus are said to be eyeing a big money bid for Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah when the transfer window reopens later this year.
This is according to the report from popular English media platform Guardian which claimed that the Italians are ready to spend as much as £175m ($225m) on Mohamed Salah who they see as a direct replacement for the wantaway Pablo Dybala.
Petite Juventus forward Dybala is disillusioned with life at the Italian Serie A club after his attacking role in the team changed this season following the club-record arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid last summer.
Portuguese superstar Ronaldo moved from Real Madrid to Juventus at the start of the season in a deal reported to be worth at least £100m.
His arrival has affected the attacking output of Paulo Dybala who has scored just two goals this season.
Dybala won’t be short of options with clubs like Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid known to be long-term admirers of the Argentine international.
His place at Juventus could be taken by in-form Egyptian star Salah who has scored 49 goals in just 62 appearances in the Premier League since he signed for the Reds last season in a $44m deal from Italian capital club AS Roma.
First United departure revealed
It has been revealed that Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to begin the overhaul of his squad ahead of the coming summer transfer window and he has identified Belgium international Romelu Lukaku as the player who should leave the club.
The Red Devils were eliminated from the Champions League by Barcelona and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unhappy that his team failed to spark to challenge the victory. He is reported to have blasted his players in the dressing room.
According to the Red Devils boss, the players failed to give their 100 percent in the game and that was why they lost without any regard.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to be willing to part ways with Romelu Lukaku after reports that he is now ready to listen to offers from suitors.
Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku’s agent will not be taken by surprise as he has earlier stated that his client is ready and open for a move away from the Old Trafford.
The Belgium international will not be the only player to be axed as a number of old players will be leaving the club at the end of the season with new additions expected when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer storm the coming summer window.
Emery makes incredible claim of Arsene Wenger
North London outfit Arsenal boss Unai Emery has spoken on taking over from former manager Arsene Wenger, about a year after the French boss announced his decision to quit.
Arsene Wenger had a 22 years reign at the Emirates Stadium and was reportedly compelled to draw the curtain which he did on 20th April in 2018.
In his departing speech, he urged the supporters and his successor to ensure that the values of the club are kept as it has been the bedrock of the successes they have been able to achieve over the past years.
However, manager Unai Emery has now affirmed those words as he claims to be doing the job that was done by his predecessor, noting that the achievements and progress of the team come with a level of progress.
Unai Emery stressed that he has big respect for manager Arsene Wenger and the good job he did at the club before leaving.
However, the former PSG boss says he would be continuing in the progress and will hope to achieve big success at the North London outfit in his reign.
Meanwhile, Unai Emery said he is happy with his first season as he earned respect from the fans and also have a hope of landing a trophy.
Former England international reveals why Solskjaer decision was a wrong one
A former England international Jermaine Jenas has blasted the Man United for hiring former player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he claims that their decision was an emotional one.
The former Red Devils forward was asked to join the club on an interim basis in December after former manager Jose Mourinho was sacked for failing to win games and losing control of the dressing room.
The whole situation changed as soon as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as he returned the club to winning ways and also ensured they played fine football which brought a remembrance of the era of legendary manager Alex Ferguson.
When he first took over, the Red Devils won 10 out of 11 games but that has now changed as they have lost 5 out of their last seven games across all competitions since he was handed the job on a permanent deal.
The former England international stated that the decision to make the job permanent for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a wrong one because it was made out of emotions.
Meanwhile, he argued that Reds Devils team have struggled to replicate Alex Ferguson and it is high time to get away with that style for a new Man United.
Lingard sound this big warning to teammates
Jesse Lingard has sounded a big warning to his Man United teammates to ensure the defeat suffered against Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Red Devils were eliminated from the Champions League earlier in the week in a 4-0 aggregate and that makes it their fifth defeat in seven games but Jesse Lingard says they must learn to move on and not linger on the defeat as it could affect their progress.
According to him, there is still a fight that must be fought for qualification to return to the Champions League next season and that will not be achievable if they continue to dwell in the past.

He noted that he would have loved his team to also play in the semi-finals, adding that it is the wish of every player to want to compete and win titles.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that the attention of his team is to see through the next three fixtures in the Premier League because the games will define their season before they later travel to Huddersfield and then host Cardiff City to end their season.
