Manchester United receive green light to seal Lorenzo Pellegrini’s signing.
According to reports coming from Italy, Manchester United have received a big boost in their pursuit of Lorenzo Pellegrini this summer.
The Italian star has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent times despite that he only rejoined Roma last year.
Pellegrini played 37 games in all competitions for the Serie A side and was able to catch the attention of various top sides with his impressive performances.
Italian news outlet Calciomercato are suggesting that Jose Mourinho’s side may have received a crucial green light to secure the player’s services ahead of the 2018/19 campaign after the club sporting director admitted they could lose him this summer.
But, do Manchester United really need another midfielder?
Despite having the likes of Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini, and Scott McTominay, manager Jose Mourinho chose to sign Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk to replace Michael Carrick who hung his boots at the end of last season.
Is Manchester United losing another midfielder before the start of next season?
Obviously not Fellaini – the Belgium has agreed to extend his stay at the Theater of Dreams.
Perhaps, Ander Herrera – who has been linked with a move to Athletic Bilbao in the La Liga.
Done Deal: Ajax Sign Potential Replacement For Liverpool Target
Dutch Eredivisie champions Ajax Amsterdam have completed the signing of defender Lisandro Martinez from Argentine club Defensa.
The 21-year-old defender joins Ajax on a four-year deal with an option for a fifth year.
Lisandro Martinez is a utility player who can play either as a left-back or as a centre back.
He made his debut for the Argentine national team earlier this year during the 3-1 defeat to fellow South Americans Venezuela in an international friendly.
Lisandro Martinez is likely to be the potential replacement for club skipper Matthijs De Ligt who’s expected to leave the club this summer.
The 19-year-old Dutch defender has been attracting interest from the major clubs on the European football scene after leading Ajax to two major trophies this season.
Champions League finalists Liverpool are one of the numerous clubs interested in his signature.
According to trusted Spanish journalist Guillem Balague, Liverpool have already held talks about the possibility of signing De Ligt who could cost at least £60m.
He could potentially form a potent centre back partnership with Virgil Van Dijk just like what’s obtainable with the Dutch national team.
Both players are the first choice centre backs for the Netherlands and they are expected to play a key role when the Nations League semifinals start next month.
Fantastic Choice: Chelsea Legend To Replace ‘Inconsistent’ Sarri THIS Summer
Premier League giants Chelsea have concluded plans to sack manager Maurizio Sarri after the Europa League final meeting with Arsenal later this month according to the report from popular English media portal Daily Mail.
It was revealed that the Europa League final in Baku, Azerbaijan will be the last game for Sarri at Chelsea and that club legend Frank Lampard is being lined up as his replacement.
Italian tactician Sarri became the Chelsea manager last summer after leaving Serie A giants Napoli.
He started his Chelsea career well until he suffered his first league defeat at Tottenham Hotspur in November.
Chelsea and Sarri endured an inconsistent run from that Spurs game till date thereby putting the manager’s job at risk.
Despite the average run of results during the winter part of the season till this summer, Maurizio Sarri has been able to lead Chelsea to two finals as well as third place oin the Premier League table.
The Italian tactician led the Blues to the Carabao Cup final before they were beaten by holders Manchester City who retained their title with the help of penalties after both sides had played goalless at the end of both regulation time and extra time.
Sarri and Chelsea will face London rivals Arsenal in the Europa League final next week.
Leverkusen Boss Unsure Of Summer Stay For Liverpool Target
Bayer Leverkusen manager Peter Bosz has expressed his doubts over star player Julian Brandt on whether he will stay at the club beyond this summer.
Julian Brandt has been in very good form for Bayer Leverkusen this season and that has attracted the attention of some European clubs including Champions League finalists Liverpool.
Peter Bosz spoke about the German international player in an interview with the official TV station of Bayer Leverkusen, Bayer 04 TV.
According to him, it’s not sure whether Julian Brandt will stay at the club beyond this season despite the qualification for Champions League football.
Peter Bosz is holding out hope that Champions League football is enough to make the player stay at the club for next season.
Bayer Leverkusen qualified for Champions League football after thrashing Hertha Berlin 5-1 in their final game of the season in the German Bundesliga.
The thumping win was more than enough to secure a top-four finish ahead of rivals Borussia Moenchengladbach who lost 2-0 at home to Borussia Dortmund.
Julian Brandt scored one of the goals for Bayer Leverkusen to take his goal tally to ten goals for the German club.
He also weighed in with 17 assists for Bayer Leverkusen this season.
Deal On: Sarri In Contention For Big Italian Job
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is reportedly in contention for the vacant managerial job at Juventus this summer.
The Italian champions will have to appoint a new permanent manager after it was revealed that current boss Maximiliano Allegri will leave his post at the end of this season.
According to trusted Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Chelsea manager Sarri and Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi are contenders for the Juventus job.
Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi was said to have held discrete talks with senior Juventus officials about the possibility of becoming the club’s new manager.
Simone Inzaghi has a contract that runs till next summer at Lazio and Juventus officials will have to discuss compensation with the capital club if they want to poach their manager.
For Chelsea boss Sarri, his time at Stamford Bridge might be coming to an end with recent reports claiming that the Blues are eyeing club legend Frank Lampard as his replacement.
Former Chelsea midfielder Lampard has done a very good job at English Championship club Derby County since he was made the manager last summer.
The ex-England international star has led Derby County to the brink of a return to Premier League football after leading the Rams to the final of the Championship Playoffs where they will face Aston Villa.
Dead Deal!!! Arsenal fail to convince star forward in another attempt
This is the second time the English Premier League outfit Arsenal will be indicating interest in the signature of star forward Leandro Trossard for a move to the Emirates Stadium.
The first contact was reportedly made in November before the January winter transfer window but a deal did not happen.
Now that the Gunners are in search of a wide forward, Leandro Trossard’s name has again popped up in the wishlist but he has got a word for the Arsenal team.
The Belgian forward made it clear that he will not be leaving Genk for anything because he is happy at the club.
According to him, the major priority is to see his family happy and that will only be achieved if he remains at the club.
Leandro Trossard stressed that he is ready to fight for a starting role in the Genk team to be able to secure more playing time.
Meanwhile, the North London outfit are looking forward to having a better team ahead of the coming season while there is a need to replace England international forward Danny Welbeck who is leaving the club in the summer window.
Howbeit, Arsenal will be missing out of the Champions League for the third consecutive time but that could change if they are able to secure a win against Chelsea in the Europa League finals.
€80m-rated target to emerge as Petr Cech replacement
The North London outfit Arsenal are reported to have made their first contact with Spanish La Liga outfit Valencia for the signature of their star goalkeeper Norberto Murara who is also known as Neto.
The London outfit is set to part ways with their legendary goalkeeper Petr Cech now that the season has ended with the former Chelsea stopper already announcing his retirement from active football in the course of the season.
This has forced Arsenal to move out in the summer transfer market for a goalkeeper who will serve as an option to Bernd Leno ahead of the coming season.
Petr Cech has been the first Choice goalkeeper since he arrived at the North London outfit but everything changed with the coming of the former Bayern Leverkusen stopper in the last summer transfer window.
Bernd Leno came directly into the team to emerge as the first choice goalkeeper ahead of the former Chelsea stopper.
Just like the usual practice, Bernd Leno kept the English Premier League games while Petr Cech took charge of the Europa League games.
Now that he will be leaving the club, the Valencia goalkeeper who has a contract running with the Spanish La Liga outfit until 2021 is reported to have a release clause of €80 million.
Transfer Hope!!! Arsenal target leaves club for free
This remains another opportunity for the North London outfit Arsenal to have their long-term target Juanfran at the club.
It is reported that Juanfran has already played his last game for the Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid as he would be leaving as a free player.
Reports in March had claimed that Juanfran agreed to extend his contract at the Spanish capital for another year on the condition that he would be handed 25 starting appearances in the league but that did not happen eventually.
Juanfran only saw 22 appearances which did not meet the condition for him to have another year stay at the club. He will, therefore, be leaving as a free player.
Having refused an approach by the North London outfit earlier on, Arsenal could return to lure the player as he would be a free player in the summer transfer window.
Arsenal have got the big need of a right Fullback ahead of the coming season with Hector Bellerin and Stephan, all looking inconsistent in their performance in the course of the just concluded season.
There is no doubt that securing the signature of Juanfran, the North London outfit would have made a major step in solving their defensive crisis for the coming season.
Deal On!!! Another 30-year-old emerges as Petr Cech replacement
There is no doubt that the English Premier League outfit Arsenal are keen to land a replacement for the outgoing goalkeeper Petr Cech for the coming season.
Petr Cech announced his decision to quit active football at the end of the season and could be set for a coaching role at his former side, West London outfit Chelsea.
The Legendary goalkeeper has got an opportunity to leave the stage when the ovation is high by retiring with the Europa League title as Arsenal will be playing Chelsea in the finals, later on Thursday.
However, Arsenal are reported to have indicated interest in the signature of 20-year- old goalkeeper Markus Schubert on a free transfer from 2. Bundesliga club Dynamo Dresden, if reports from Germany are to be believed.
Schubert seems to be the solution for the defensive crisis at the Emirates Stadium after making 43 appearances for the second-tier German club and keeping 12 clean sheets. His performances earned him call-ups to every German national side up to the u21s, so he’s clearly thought of highly in his home country.
It is, therefore, unclear if Markus Schubert will accept to be a third choice goalkeeper behind Emi Martinez but one sure thing is his coming to fight for a shirt.
Deal On!!! Two Ligue 1 outfits come knocking for Arsenal teenager
The emerging report reveals that 2 French Ligue 1 outfits Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are both keen to land the signature of North London outfit Arsenal Starlet Tyreece John-Jules ahead of the summer transfer window.
Tyreece John-Jules only signed his professional contract with the Gunners team in 2018 with the deal expected to run until 2020 which means the contract is due for a renewal or he would be made to leave the club as a free player.
This is why the two French Ligue 1 outfits have come out to try their luck for the signature of the Arsenal young striker and they are already reported to be preparing an offer to land him as soon as the summer window is opened.
Tyreece John-Jules has shown big prospect as a youth player and that is already receiving attention from other top European clubs. This means Arsenal must act fast to hand Tyreece John-Jules a new deal at the club to be able to keep Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco out of his sight.
It is important to note that John-Jules scored 16 goals and provided eight others in 30 appearances for the academy this season while his link-up play is a major strength that has helped him out.
Deal On: West Ham Eyeing Summer Move For Chelsea Shot Stopper
West Ham United are reportedly interested in a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero this summer.
According to the specific report from the London Evening Standard, the Hammers are in need of a new backup goalkeeper and the aging Willy Caballero fits the bill.
Argentine international Caballero joined Chelsea from Premier League champions Manchester City and he has played second fiddle since he became a Blue.
The Hammers want to make him their second choice goalkeeper behind first choice Lukasz Fabianski.
Polish international shot stopper Fabianski has been in sensational form for the Hammers since his transfer from Swansea City last summer.
West Ham United were said to have paid around £7m to sign Fabianski from already relegated Swansea City.
The former Arsenal goalkeeper made the most saves amongst the Premier League goalkeepers at the end of the league season in the top flight of English football.
Willy Caballero has few months left on his Chelsea and he’s likely to leave this summer for West Ham United probably though a deal is still far from happening.
He was the understudy to Thibaut Courtois before the Belgian shot stopper left for Real Madrid last summer.
Courtois was replaced by Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga in a world-record deal for a shot stopper.
