Kieran Trippier

Emerging reports claim that English Premier League outfit Man United are keen to snap up North London outfit right full-back Kieran Trippier in the coming summer transfer window.

The Red Devils are set for a major overhaul of the team ahead of the coming season with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already hinting that some players will not be a part of the team in the coming season.

The speculations of new faces at the Old Trafford continue to rise as Man United suffered another defeat against Everton in the English Premier League just after the 3-0 elimination from the Champions League against Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona.

However, Kieran Trippier is one of the players that have been identified by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to help the team next season and he has reportedly told the club that he will do all in his power to land the star player as soon as the summer transfer window is opened.

It is therefore unsure if the North London outfit will be willing to part ways with their star player as he is a major part of the team that is impressing in the Champions League at the moment, especially after eliminating Man City from the Champions League.

Ashley Cole

Former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole has revealed that he has not made a decision about his future.

The Chelsea legend talked about the possibility of retiring from football in an interview with Rams TV ahead of the crucial Championship Playoff final clash with former European champions Aston Villa.

According to him, no decision has been made on his future with the focus presently on the Villa game.

Ashley Cole returned to English football earlier this year after joining Derby County on a short-term deal until this summer.

The 38-year-old has helped the Rams to the playoff final where they have the opportunity to secure a return to the top flight of English football.

Derby County will return to the Premier League if they beat Aston Villa in the playoff final scheduled to take place at the Wembley Stadium on Monday afternoon.

The Rams sealed their place in the final of the playoffs after they recovered from a 1-0 first leg semifinal deficit at home to beat favourites Leeds United 4-2 thereby securing a 4-3 aggregate win.

Ashley Cole had a good career at both Arsenal and Chelsea where he won many trophies before signing for AS Roma.

He left the Italian Serie A club for LA Galaxy in the MLS where his contract expired late last year.

Marco Asensio

Champions League finalists Tottenham Hotspur have had their request turned down in their chase to sign Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio.

According to trusted Spanish newspaper AS, Tottenham Hotspur were told that Spanish international Marco Asensio is not for sale.

It was revealed that Real Madrid is not open to the idea of selling Marco Asensio despite his disappointing outing for the Los Merengues last season.

Tottenham Hotspur are not the only club interested in a move for the aforementioned Asensio.

The likes of Chelsea and Liverpool have previously been linked with a move for the 23-year-old attacker.

Marco Asensio didn’t have much impact at Real Madrid during the just concluded season.

The Spaniard failed to live up to expectations in the wake of the sale of former Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese national team captain secured a club-record move to Italian champions Juventus last summer.

Juventus paid around €100m for his transfer from Real Madrid before handing him a very lucrative four-year contract.

The likes of Marco Asensio, Gareth Bale and Isco failed to step up in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo and that affected Real Madrid a great deal.

Real Madrid were out of contention for all the major competitions as at the start of March.

Adrien Rabiot

Premier League giants Manchester United are still in the running to sign Paris Saint Germain (PSG) midfielder Adrien Rabiot on a free transfer this summer.

This is according to report from the Manchester Evening News which claimed that the Red Devils are still interested in signing the player alongside other suitors like Tottenham Hotspur, Barcelona and Liverpool.

Manchester United are expected to sign at least a new midfielder in the wake of the exit of Ander Herrera.

The Spanish midfielder has left Manchester United after the expiration of his contract and he’s expected to join French giants PSG on a free transfer this summer.

Ironically, he would replace the aforementioned Rabiot at PSG after recent reports claimed that he has agreed on a four-year deal with the French capital club.

Adrien Rabiot has run down his contract at PSG and he’s expected to leave PSG on a free transfer this summer.

Spanish champions Barcelona were the favourites to sign him but their interest has cooled down in recent weeks and months.

Adrien Rabiot was frozen out of the team in December last year after he refused to sign a new contract.

His last PSG appearance came in December during the Champions League away clash at Red Star Belgrade.

Ryan Fraser

Three-time European champions Manchester United are reportedly not in the race to sign Bournemouth midfielder Ryan Fraser according to the publication from popular English media portal Independent.

It was revealed that the Red Devils are not interested in a move for the petite Scottish international player contrary to previous reports which claimed that Manchester United were in the running to sign him this summer.

Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in the player though the former might be able to offer him first team assurances, unlike the Reds.

Ryan Fraser joined Bournemouth from Scottish Premiership club Aberdeen in 2012 and he has grown to become a key player for the Cherries since then.

He has just one year left on his contract with the Cherries who are almost resigned to losing him this summer.

Bournemouth have already slapped £30m on him though favourites Arsenal believe they can sign him for less.

Aberdeen have a 20% sell-on clause in his contract from the Scottish club to Bournemouth seven years ago.

Ryan Fraser scored eight goals and also assisted 15 more during the just concluded season including seven goals plus 14 assists in the Premier League.

Only Chelsea star Eden Hazard (15) made more assists than Ryan Fraser in the Premier League.

Eden Hazard

Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid are struggling to meet up with the financial demands from Premier League heavyweights Chelsea for star player Eden Hazard.

Real Madrid have made Eden Hazard their number one transfer target this summer as they attempt to rebuild their squad after a poor season.

According to the Daily Mirror, Real Madrid are nowhere near the asking price demanded by Chelsea for Belgian international star Hazard.

Chelsea won’t sanction a sale for Eden Hazard if they don’t receive their £112m valuation while Real Madrid are said to have made an £86m bid for him.

The transfer for Eden Hazard is expected to a be a club-record deal for Real Madrid as it will surpass the current record which is the transfer that took Welsh international player Gareth Bale from North London giants Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid in the summer of 2013.

Real Madrid were said to have paid around £85.3m for Bale six years ago.

The aforementioned Hazard has one year left on his Chelsea contract and the Blues are almost handicapped in their bid to keep him at the club beyond this summer.

Real Madrid are likely to get their man but they have to dance to the tune of Chelsea to achieve that feat.

Spanish giants Real Madrid are reportedly in talks to sign highly-rated Lyon defender Ferland Mendy during this summer’s transfer window.

This is according to the publication from popular media outlet Goal which claimed that Real Madrid want to bolster their playing squad on the left side of defence and they have identified Mendy as the man for the job.

Ferland Mendy has previously been linked with a move to the Premier League with clubs like Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.

Lyon are in a good position amidst the negotiation with Real Madrid over one of their prized assets as he still has four years left on his contract.

Real Madrid see Ferland Mendy as the long-term replacement for the aging Marcelo.

The other left-back options at Real Madrid like Theo Hernandez, Reguilon and Achraf Hakimi have not shown that they can be relied upon.

Achraf Hakimi had a very good season while he was on loan at German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund and he has already extended his loan deal for another season.

Real Madrid might have to look at other options like Real Betis left-back Junior Firpo if Lyon prove difficult in the chase to sign French international star Ferland Mendy.

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has admitted that he would be disappointed if former manager Antonio Conte joins Italian Serie A rivals Inter Milan this summer.

Former Chelsea manager Conte worked with Chiellini while he was the Juventus manager until 2014 when he left to take the Italian national team job.

He continued to work with Chiellini on the international scene before being named the Chelsea manager in 2016.

Giorgio Chiellini spoke about Antonio Conte and Inter Milan in a chat with popular Italian news portal Tuttosport.

According to him, it would be a weird feeling to see Antonio Conte at Inter Milan.

Conte is expected to be named as the replacement for the outgoing Luciano Spalletti at Inter Milan.

Recent reports claimed that the Nerazzurri have offered him a lucrative salary worth around €10m per annum and that he will put pen to paper on a three-year deal this summer until the end of the 2021/22 season.

Antonio Conte is poised to return to the dugout after a year.

The Italian tactician has not managed a team since his sack from Chelsea last year shortly after winning the FA Cup title at the expense of Manchester United.

He won the league title in the previous season which happened to be his debut campaign as the Chelsea manager.

Sheyi Ojo is expected to sign a new five-year contract at Liverpool before joining Rangers on loan for the new season.

He will team up with Reds legend Steven Gerrard at Rangers ahead of the new season.

Former Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard led Rangers to second place behind champions Celtic in the just concluded Scottish Premiership season and the target is to do better next season by winning the league title.

The time is already ticking for the English Premier League outfit Man United and they are yet to agree on a new deal with their star goalkeeper David De Gea. This makes an exit imminent.

A lot of talks are reported to have gone down between the club and the former Atletico Madrid player and he is alleged to have demanded a weekly pay of £350,000 as a condition for staying back while that is yet to be met by the Red Devils.

However, it is reported that Man United are still pressing hard to convince David De Gea as they will find it difficult to have him replaced in the coming summer transfer window.

There are still speculations that David De Gea would remain at the Old Trafford if his salary is increased and if he would be assured of improved performance of his team but it is yet to be seen if the Red Devils are willing to go that high.

Meanwhile, from all indications, there is yet to be an agreement between the two parties and it is unclear if that will happen anytime soon but the bottom line is the fact that David De Gea wants to stay back and the club also wants him to.

Adrien Rabiot

From every indication, the race for the signature of French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain star Adrien Rabiot is now between two English Premier League outfits Arsenal and Man United.

A number of reports have continued to link the 24-year-old to the two English rivals as he is confirmed to be on the move away from Paris in the summer transfer window.

Adrien Rabiot had fallen out with PSG and his family have backed him up to move away as a free player especially as he was left out of the team for a number of games in the course of the season.

However, the North London outfit Arsenal have been tipped as favourites in the race especially now that they stand the chance of securing automatic qualification to the Champions League next season should they win the Europa League finals against Chelsea.

More so, Arsenal boss Unai Emery has got a good relationship with Adrien Rabiot as they worked together during his spell at PSG. They could be set for a reunion.

Howbeit, Adrien Rabiot will only consider a move to any of the suitors with the right programme for his development and success, knowing that he would be a free player.
