Manchester United are reportedly on the brink of sealing a season-long loan for Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches.
Chris Smalling has denied suggestions that he has fallen out of favour with Jose Mourinho.
Manchester United have signed a goalkeeper Theo Richardson.
Manchester United’s lavishness in concerting clear cut chances into great goals this season is a matter of concern to the manager, Jose Mourinho.
Manchester United has a long history when it comes to late goals, winning dramatic derbies and even a Champions League with breakthroughs right at the death in injury time. However, it is hard to remember any moment in the past when a late equaliser at Stoke City led to as much widespread praise and acclaim as it did on January 21st.
José Mourinho has hit back at critics who have been highly critical of midfielder Paul Pogba.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is considered to be one of the best forwards in the world which is an impressive accomplishment to reach considering that the Swedish player is 34 years old but he continues scoring goals at a consistent basis and his performances are top notch. In 27 appearances, Ibrahimovic has scored 32 goals and this just shows the impact that the veteran attacker has made on his time despite being at an age which is considered to be old in the world of football. The contract of Zlatan Ibrahimovic expires at the end of the season and the Swedish player is expected to leave PSG at that time but his future remains unclear as the player himself stated that its almost time to hang up his boots but considering that there are clubs that have been showing huge interest for him, there is a chance for him to continue performing. Arsenal and Manchester United are the clubs in the Premier League that have been displaying interest in signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and according to him, he has been receiving offers from a number of different clubs. “I have had lots of offers from English clubs. I have won a lot of trophies but I still want to win a lot more. I want to do it wherever I can.” Ibrahimovic said. (more…)
Wayne Rooney perhaps did not see his substitution coming against Aston Villa and expected himself to go through the game.
North Korea were seen as the least favourites for the East Asian Cup title, but they managed to bring a huge surprise to the party after securing a 2-1 win over initial favourites Japan. The team managed by Bosnian VahidHalilhodzic was expected to make a huge impact at this tournament, but they have gone home without making any impact whatsoever. Part of this reason was the surprise performance from North Korea. The game between the two ended in a 2-1 victory for Korea DPR, who had to come back from going a goal down. Prior to this match, North Korea were on a good run of form with the team claiming victories over the likes of Yemen and Uzbekistan in the World Cup qualifying group. This run undoubtedly helped the team get some huge confidence ahead of this game against Japan. However, few would have expected North Korea to rebound very well in the game after conceding to Muto as early as in the third minute.Hyok-CholRi came up with the equaliser in the 78th minute beforeHyon-Il Pak score the unlikely winner with just two minutes of normal time remaining. North Korea held on for a famous victory and they will hope to repeat this astonishing performance when they take on China in the next match. (more…)
Robin van Persie has hinted that Manchester United will be spending another huge sum of money in the upcoming transfer window. The Red Devils splashed out a whopping sum of more than £ 150 million net last summer on players like Angel di Maria. However, this only helped the team managed a top four finish. Even the tactical brilliance was unable to see them remain in the title hunt for much of the campaign. However, it cannot be classified as a bad campaign since the main priority for the club was to get back into the Champions League. Armed with the prospect of European football once again, United have the capability to attract the best players in the world. This has put a number of players on the shop window and one of them could be star striker Robin van Persie. The Dutchman has struggled to replicate his Arsenal form in the last two years. Even though he helped them win the title in Sir Alex Ferguson’s last campaign, van Persie has been personally struggling to keep himself in the starting line-up. This situation could get worse if United sign another top striker in the summer. Van Persie has been linked with a move to Juventus to replace Carlos Tevez. (more…)
