Mourinho seeks help from Chelsea pal to lure big target to United

Mourinho

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is desperate to have Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic Savic at the Old Trafford.

Mourinho is a big fan of the player and he is ready to break the club’s transfer record to sign him having received the backing of the club.

The United boss demonstrated his strong desire to have the player by travelling to East Europe to watch Savic play for Serbia against Montenegro.

The UEFA Nations League ended 2 – 0 in favour of Serbia.

Savic would have been a Red Devil by now should his asking price had not increased as the Portuguese manager made an attempt to sign him at the summer.

With United struggling at the moment, the former Chelsea boss has made it clear the star midfielder would be tempted to the Old Trafford in the January window.

However, Mourinho’s Chelsea pal Mateja Kezman is expected to be influential on the matter as the United manager hopes on his past relationship.

Kezman was the first recruit by Mourinho to England when he first joined Chelsea and luckily for the Portugues boss, his former player is the current agent of the Lazio midfielder.

However, the final decision is expected to be made by the club as they will find it difficult to release the player.

Chelsea star and Belgium international, Eden Hazard last week had made claims over a likely move to Real Madrid.

Although the player claimed he is happy at Chelsea but he disclosed that a move to Real Madrid will also make him happier.

Real Madrid had shown interest in the player during the summer transfer window but Chelsea held their ground against selling him, what we don’t know is for how long Chelsea can continue to deny him the transfer to Spain.

Hazard, 27, in a recent statement made it known that he will remain at Chelsea until the end of the season but he has assured the Blues he will not force his transfer away from Chelsea the way his fellow countryman, Thibaut Courtois had done last season.

Courtois forced a move from Chelsea in the summer transfer window by refusing to resume for training.

In Hazard’s case, the Belgium star disclosed he wants to maintain the respect between the two parties and as such wouldn’t force his move from, Chelsea.

Eden Hazard in his statement said ‘Chelsea were clear to me, I could not leave, I accepted it.’

He went on to say if he leaves or stays he was going to be happy.

The winger disclosed he would never clash with Chelsea and if he leaves Stamford Bridge he would ‘leave on good terms.’

Chris Sutton

Chelsea legend Chris Sutton has spoken on the chances Arsenal have to win the Premier League this season.

Sutton who was only replying to the questions asked boldly replied by saying Arsenal will not win the Premier League this season.

The Chelsea legend is not moved by the threat the Unai Emery side pose to other top teams after rising from a two consecutive defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea consecutively to winning their remaining six games in the league.

Aside from shooting to the 4th position in the premier league table, Arsenal have gone nine games with a winning streak.

Despite all of the signs, Sutton insists that the North London club will not emerge, winner of the league, this season.

He has pointed to Liverpool and Manchester City as the two potential candidates for the title, not mentioning Chelsea despite keeping their second position place.

However, Sutton said the only possibility for Arsenal is to have a return to the Champions League next season by finishing in the top four positions above their London rivals, Tottenham.

So far, Arsenal have earned 18 points from the 8 games played so far and they hope to continue their winning streak when they welcome Leicester City to the Emirate Stadium on Monday 22 October after the international break.

Super Eagles

About three European clubs expressed their delight in seeing the Super Eagles thrash Libya by 4-0 in the 2019 African Nations Cup Qualifiers on Saturday.

Former Watford striker Odion Ighalo had extended his goalscoring form in the Chinese League to the national team with his sweet performance as he saw the back of the net three times, making it the first hattrick of his career.

The game was a delight to clubs including Arsenal, Chelsea and Bordeaux who all monitored the game that was played at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo and they took to their social media platforms to hail their players and the win.

For the Stamford Bridge, they were glad Ola Aina made it from the bench to contribute to the big win by the Nigerian side.

Also, Arsenal could not hold it from celebrating the Naija boy who had his club side form extended to the Gernot Rohr team by giving an assist in the game.

Arsenal on their twitter handle stated that Iwobi set up Odion Ighalo for his second goal with an inch-perfect through pass.

It was same for Bordeaux who monitored Samuel Kanu’s performance and had it on record.

However, the clubs expect to see another good performance when the team converge to face same Libya in the return leg this week.

UEFA Nations League: Southgate makes case for clubs, players

Southgate

The UEFA Nations League has been ongoing since the commencement of the international break and it has not been an easy one for players who have got just a little time to rest.

England national team coach Gareth Southgate is one of those who will hit out on the Premier League for rushing to begin the league without giving necessary conditions to players who were at the Russia 2018 World Cup.

Southgate who spoke ahead of his side’s Nations League game against Spain noted that clubs are placed in an impossible situation where they have to field players who have not rested to achieve results.

According to the England boss it was wrong for the Premier League to have started on August 10; just 27 days after his side were eliminated by Belgium in the World Cup.

Citing Tottenham as an example, Southgate said many of their players reached the semi-finals of the World Cup and had no rest until the league started, pointing it as the reason why they have failed to give their best performance.

The situation becomes more difficult for players as they have to return back to their various countries for the UEFA competition without enough rest for them to have.

Southgate is the second after Liverpool manager to have made such a claim, with the German manager arguing that the Nations League should be scrapped to allow players to refresh before they return back to their various clubs.

Cristiano Biraghi

The Uefa Nations League between Italy and Poland took place last night with the Italian national squad been quite wasteful in terms of scoring goals despite their top performance.

Italy had two strikes in the first half that hit the bar, one of the strikes was from Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho, who played the ball from the box area.

However, Italy managed to have their first win since the commencement of the Uefa Nations League and also their first win since Roberto Mancini became the coach of the National team in May.

Cristiano Biraghi gave the Italian squad a late win by scoring a goal in last few minutes to the end of the match.

This latest development has seen Poland relegated from the Uefa Nations League.

Poland, Ukraine, and Italy are in the same group with Portugal, who are the leader of the group and are tipped to move to the semi-finals.

Portugal have six points from two matches while Italy has 4 points from three matches.

Robert Mancini, who is on a mission to rebuild the Italian national squad following failure to make it to the 2018 world cup in Russia said, Italy dominated the match and ”should have scored earlier and it would have been very unfair if the game had finished 0-0.”
