4. ‘Lindelof has done NOTHING in football’- Man United Legend
Manchester United legend Ray Wilkins has criticized the club for signing Victor Lindelof. The pundit believes Burnley defender Michael Keane would have been a better and cheaper option. The 22-year-old Swedish international is set to complete a £30.75 million move to Old Trafford.
“We’ve got young Keane has done exceptionally well at Burnley, we’re looking to bring him back to Manchester United for £28m, all of a sudden Lindelof is 30 [million],” Wilkins said.
“Now, when we bring someone in from Europe, it always starts with a three.
“This guy has done nothing. Absolutely nothing. Yet Keane has played a season exceptionally well in the Premier League, but we’re talking £25m. This guy’s coming in at £32m, £33m. Can he do it? We know Keane can, yet we’re prepared to spend…
“It always starts with a three, or a four, or a five. No one gets anything cheap from Europe because it’s the Premier League.”
Lindelof made his Benfica debut in 2013/14 season. He has made 73 first team appearances so far.
3. Chelsea want Napoli star to replace Hazard
Chelsea is already preparing for life without star player Eden Hazard. The Blues expect a massive offer from Real Madrid for the Belgian. Antonio Conte has now identified the right player to take the place that will be left behind.
The man is Napoli striker Lorenzo Insigne. The 26-year-old scored 20 goals in 49 appearances last season for the Serie A side. The Naples side will expect nothing less than £45 million for the Italian forward.
2. SAD DAY- Buffon announce RETIREMENT
Juventus legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has announced that he will retire from football at the end of next season. The Italian plans to represent Italy in Russia 2018 World Cup for the very last time and then hang his gloves.
“I’m 99.9 percent certain of retirement,” he told Sky Sport 24.
“I’m going to have one final, intense season, rich in big moments, and then it will be time to say enough is enough.”
However, the 39-year-old will carry on for one more year but only if his team can help him lift the Champions League in 2017/18 season.
“We’ve just left one small possibility open with the president [Juventus chief Andrea Agnelli],” Buffon added.
“That is if we manage to win the Champions League I will carry on playing one more year to try to win the Club World Cup and other trophies.”
The decorated shot stopper lost 4-1 to Real Madrid in this year Champions League final.
1. GOOD NEWS- The Agent of Man United Top Target Confirms the Deal
Manchester United fans can afford a smile this morning because Alvaro Morata is coming. The agent of the Real Madrid striker has confirmed a bid has been made. Juanma Lopez has said the Red Devils offer worth €60 million is currently under consideration.
“Manchester United? They are a club with great glamor, a very interesting option,” Lopez said to CalcioMercato.com.
“I can say that their proposal is a very, very important one and now the decision rests with Real. I cannot say if a deal will be closed soon – we will see.”
Jose Mourinho is chasing the 24-year-old striker to bolster his striking force ahead of the new season. Old Trafford will be welcoming back Uefa Champions League and a good team is needed.
The only other team that was challenging the Premier League side is AC Milan but they are out of the race now. They decided to go for Porto striker Andre Silva because Morata was far too expensive for them.
“Yes, there was frequent contact with us until a few days ago – I can confirm that,” continued Lopez.
“Quite simply, Real Madrid considered the AC Milan offer to be unsatisfactory.”
