Video show Man United midfielder performance during match against Brighton and why the captaincy band should be taken off him

Man United had a goal of wanting to challenge Man City and also unseat them as the top team on the EPL table.

But it looks as if the Red Devils are nowhere close to unseating a stronger team like Manchester City as the only club capable of achieving the feat is Liverpool.

Well, Man Utd have been in a lot of confusion and disappointing game of late having had a poor game against Brighton FC over the weekend.

However, fans have come for French midfielder, Paul Pogba, who Jose Mourinho made as captain in the Reds first two games.

Many had disclosed that the Captain band was giving to Paul Pogba to pacify him in his bid to leave Old Trafford for Barcelona.

This is because Pogba had suffered a strained relationship with Mourinho last season which saw him get limited playing chances at Old Trafford.

Pogba had done well in the Red Devils match against Leicester City as Captain but his performance against Brighton was awful.

This was why Ex-United star, Paul Scholes in a tweet had stated that the captain band be taking away from him.

Man Utd fans have agreed with Scholes as a fan had gone ahead to upload a video of Pogba poor performance against Brighton.

Cengiz Under

West London giants Chelsea are targeting AS Roma winger Cengiz Under as a possible replacement for wantaway Eden Hazard according to reports coming out of the Turkish media.

Cengiz Under has established himself as an important member of the AS Roma team since he joined the club at the start of last season.

Media outlet Turkish-Football claim that the Blues see the young winger as a potential replacement should Eden Hazard leave the club this summer.

The Belgian international player has already talked about Real Madrid as his dream club and a move could happen this summer with just one year on his Chelsea contract by then.

Earlier reports claim that Chelsea have already slapped a £100m asking price on Hazard in a bid to ward off Real Madrid.

Despite the transfer reports, Eden Hazard has been the standout player for Chelsea in what’s becoming a difficult season for Blues manager Maurizio Sarri and his players.

Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard has scored 12 goals and provided 10 assists in the Premier League this term.

Cengiz Under could be a possible replacement for him after the Turkish international player attracted the Blues’ interest as a result of his consistent displays for his Italian Serie A club.

Why Aissa Mandi will still land in Arsenal Premier

Aiyeku Timothy



Spanish La Liga outfit Real Betis defender Aissa Mandi is tipped to end up at the English Premier League outfit Arsenal in the coming summer window because the North London outfit are still keen on his signature.

The Gunners were reported to be keen on Aissa Mandi in the last January winter transfer window but no deal was able to fall through because the £30 million release clause could not be met. There were no funds available for the team to land any major addition.

With the North London outfit now ready to do some business in the coming summer window, there are indications that Aissa Mandi will be part of the major targets knowing that the club are seeking for more additions in their defence.

Suggestions are that the La Liga outfit are ready to part ways with the star player but on the condition that the North London will meet with his asking price.

Aissa Mandi is known as one of the best in the Spanish league and has proved that well with Real Betis over the years.

It is now unclear of the North London outfit will still have the sum of £30 million to land him in the coming summer window.

How Real madrid wish favours Chelsea ahead of United for Gareth Bale

Aiyeku Timothy



gareth bale

West London outfit Manchester United might be made to lose out on their long term target Gareth Bale despite his wish to join the Old Trafford but that might not happen because his club wants otherwise.

Gareth Bale has been on the radar of the Red Devils team even before he left the North London outfit Tottenham to join the La Liga outfit but all of their efforts failed to fall through.

Now that he is being rumoured to be unsettled at the club and seek a move away, it is claimed that he is now willing to answer the call at Man United but the Real Madrid are not willing to sanction that.

It is claimed that the Spanish giants are willing to let go of Gareth Bale to the West London outfit Chelsea rather than United because of the already existing good relationship between both sides.

However, it is not clear how much would be tabled for the star player but suggestions are that the Blues and the Red Devils will well consider Gareth Bale’s price before making a move for him because of his age which is already 30,

It is no longer news that Chelsea have a policy of not signing a player who is more than 30 for more than a year contract.

Liverpool Face Merseyside Threat For €100m Midfielder

Segun Amuda



Bruno Fernandes

Five-time European champions Liverpool will have to fend off the threat of Merseyside rivals Everton in their quest to sign highly rated Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes when the transfer window reopens this summer.

Portuguese media outlet Correio da Manha claim that the Toffees will battle it out with Liverpool for Bruno Fernandes.

The Portuguese international player has a €100m release clause in his current contract with Portuguese Super League giants Sporting Lisbon who might be open to a summer sale due to their current financial state.

Bloomberg had earlier revealed in November 2018 that Sporting Lisbon are in debt to the tune of €281m and they could raise funds through player sales in the summer to settle some of their debts.

Bruno Fernandes has been one of the best players for Sporting Lisbon this term.

Sporting Lisbon might need to sell him below the aforementioned release clause to raise funds for their debts.

Liverpool and Everton could do with a midfield signing this summer.

The Liverpool midfield has come under severe criticisms this season because of their ineffectiveness while Everton are not certain about keeping Andre Gomes in their midfield for next season.

Andre Gomes is on a season-long loan deal from Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona.

Few years ago, Alex Teixeira confirmed talks with Chelsea, should the Blues be worried now





Three years ago, former Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder confirmed that he had talks with Chelsea FC.

Texiera said:

“I know there has been some interest from Chelsea lately, but at the moment nothing is concrete”.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder has scored 22 goals in that season which has attracted a lot of clubs because of his performance.

With the current Chelsea team, Texeira is more likely to replace Pedro than any other players in the squad.

Williams and Hazard play in the wild position, while Alex Teixeira can operate mostly in the central position.

The Brazilian would have been an excellent scorer that will add value to Chelsea’s failing attack, however, Chelsea never agreed a fee with his Ukrainian side and Chinese side Jiansu Suning tabled an incredible deal for Alex Teixeira,  The Guardian reported that it was worth around £38 million, smashing the Chinese transfer record.

Alex Teixeira’s completed his transfer same year and moved to China two years ago now, with Chelsea failing to score goals back to back, so has he shown Chelsea what they are missing now?

So far the attack-minded player has been a success in China, undoubtedly, but his form has certainly not left Chelsea fans wondering what it might have been to have a player that can assist Higuain.

He scored 13 goals for Shakhtar Donetsk in the 2016  and this season his side have been facing relegation. In all honesty, he has not been the massive success his stats at Shakhtar Donetsk projected he would be in China.

Alex Teixeira has failed to win any silverware with Jiansu in two years and there is no headway he will make the Brazil national squad soon. Fans must have believed that a move to Chelsea would have been a good step in the right direction for his career.

We could simply say he is operating at a lower league, due to the lower level of competition in the Chinese Super League – but we strongly doubt if Chelsea fans will be losing any sleep over this missed transfer from two years ago.

Aiyeku Timothy



Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

English Premier League Manchester United fans have been told that they have no reasons to worry because interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has got the defensive mix that can help the team through to the end of the season.

According to suggestions, the Red Devils boss has discovered a new partnership that has proved to excel the coming games.

Both players were slow to performance at the start of the season under former manager Jose Mourinho but that has been sorted out with the new interim manager who has helped the star players to get back to their best.

However, a win for the Red Devils will mean that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be considered for the job on a permanent deal while a win for the Red Devils will make the league leaders with three points clear ahead of Man City.

Aiyeku Timothy



Zlatan Ibrahimovic has boasted that he was able to do something as a Manchester United player that will never be forgotten on the English Premier League.

The star striker had a spell at the Old Trafford between 2016 and 2018 where he scored 29 goals in 53 games and won the League Cup as well as the Europa League trophy before he left to MLS side LA Galaxy.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic stated that there were criticisms that he would not succeed at the Old Trafford but he was able to conquer and became a force to reckon with.

He noted that people held the notion that he was coming to England at an old age and will not be able to meet up with the competition but those claims triggered him to record the success he had.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic boasted that winning is in his DNA and he will always win wherever he went.

The 37-year-old therefore, however, hailed Man United fans for being amazing all and having support for the players.

Meanwhile, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has had spells in most of the major leagues including the Spanish La Liga, the Italian Serie A, the EPL and the US Major League Soccer.

United to reward star player with new deal, guess who

Aiyeku Timothy



Ander Herrera

There are reports that English Premier League outfit Manchester United will hand a three-year contract extension to star player Ander Herrera for his outstanding performance at the club.

Just like every other player, Ander Herrera had a very slow start of the season where he failed to deliver good performance as expected under former manager Jose Mourinho but with his sack and the coming of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it all changed.

The Sun reports that United chiefs have considered the Spanish star as the man behind the success of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford and have considered him as deserving a new contract.

Ander Herrera has a running contract with the Old Trafford team but it is set to expire at the end of the season which makes it important to either hand him a contract extension or lose him for free.

However, the star player was instrumental to adding more troubles to Chelsea and manager Maurizio Sarri after scoring the opening goal in the FA Cup tie before Paul Pogba completed it to make it 2-0 at the Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Ander Herrera has no doubt found his mojo and he is reported to be happy to make the fans happy with the wins and new form under the interim manager.
