Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a move away from Manchester United this summer. The Portuguese superstar is eager to leave the club because he feels he needs to win more trophies in his twilight years. United have been unable to win the Champions League for five consecutive seasons, and Ronaldo wants to compete in Europe’s top competition. Moreover, he is unhappy with the club’s failure to improve its squad during the current transfer window. Of the 13 players who left Manchester United in the summer transfer window, none have come in.

Despite the delays in making his intentions clear, the Portuguese star’s decision to leave Manchester United has posed a problem for the club. It has stopped them from competing for a proven forward. Besides wasting time on Ronaldo, United have already missed out on the signings of Richarlison and Gabriel Jesus. The club could also have blocked Liverpool’s move for Darwin Nunez, or tried to beat Barcelona for Robert Lewandowski or offered Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain. However, this is no longer possible as time is running out.

If Ronaldo does opt to leave Manchester United, he will be free to sign a new contract at a top European club. Despite this, United don’t want to sell him, but they will accept a huge pay-cut if he leaves. This would put the end to his second spell at Manchester United. He is the third highest paid athlete in the world, behind Lionel Messi.

Erik ten Hag is convinced Anthony Martial must stay at Manchester United

After leaving Manchester United in January, Erik ten Hag is convinced that Anthony Martial must stay at the club. Despite a disappointing season last year, the Frenchman has impressed during pre-season. In two games against Crystal Palace, he netted a brace and provided an assist for Jadon Sancho. Ten Hag is convinced that the Frenchman can help the club win the Premier League and keep them in the top four.

The former England international was expected to leave Manchester United this summer, but has impressed during pre-season. Although many had hoped that Martial would be sold this summer, his performance this season has proven that the club has a long-term plan for him. Martial’s lease expires in 2024 and he has scored three goals in four matches. He was initially allowed to leave the club before the pre-tour and the club were able to sign another player. However, Martial has impressed Erik ten Hag and is now convinced that he must remain at Manchester United.

The Frenchman has been in the spotlight over the summer and has been tipped to become the club’s top scorer. The former Sevilla midfielder scored twice in two pre-season friendlies, and Erik ten Hag believes Martial is capable of getting better. He has played as centre forward in both friendlies and pre-season. After spending half of the previous season on loan at Sevilla, he managed just one goal in 12 matches for United.

Frenkie de Jong is top transfer target for Manchester United

Erik Ten Hag has made Frenkie de Jong one of his main targets this summer. The Belgian midfielder is expected to return to Barcelona training on Monday. A deal for the Dutch international is said to be worth EUR65 million plus add-ons. Manchester United are now closer to finalising the deal than ever before. However, many United fans are still unsure whether Frenkie de Jong wants to move to Old Trafford.

Inter are keen on the Belgian midfielder, who is also wanted by Bayern Munich. However, the Dutchman would rather remain at Milan. A move to Old Trafford could prove more beneficial for the club. However, it is possible that Chelsea will hijack Manchester United’s attempt to sign de Jong. Chelsea striker Gabriel Agbolanhor has publicly urged the Dutch midfielder to sign for the Blues, but the former Netherlands international has been linked with Manchester United for some time.

A deal for De Jong could be completed by the end of this year. There has been no deadline set for the deal. However, United have other targets in mind. Two of the players who could replace him include Wolves’ Ruben Neves and Manchester City’s Youri Tielemans. If Barcelona agree to sell the player, it will be an excellent move for the Red Devils.

Manuel Akanji prefers to join Borussia Dortmund

Although he is not expected to sign a new deal this summer, it seems likely that the Swiss international will leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season. Dortmund have the funds necessary to buy a new defender after selling Ousmane Dembele. Although Arsenal have shown interest in Akanji, they may wait until the sale of defender Laurent Koulibaly is completed. Inter Milan have also been linked with Akanji and could move for him if they fail to sign Torino defender Bremer.

The 24-year-old has been linked with Manchester United and Arsenal but is not yet deciding which team to join. His contract at Dortmund expires in the summer and he is free to leave for PS21 million. However, Manchester United have also shown an interest and have been approached by the player. The club’s current coach is Erik ten Hag, a former Borussia Dortmund player. Whether Manchester United are interested in signing Akanji is a question of taste, but his desire to leave Dortmund is undeniable.

Arsenal are keen on signing Manuel Akanji. However, the player’s contract at Dortmund expires in 2023, which leaves them without the luxury of offering him a new long-term contract. Moreover, the club has also started to sign replacements for Akanji, with the arrival of Niklas Sule and Nico Schlotterbeck set to arrive at the end of the season. Meanwhile, Akanji will be free to join an overseas club next January.

Emiliano Sala wants to join Real Madrid

Despite his recent agreement with Cardiff City, Emiliano Sala wants to join Real Madrid. A source familiar with the situation confirmed the news to L’Equipe. The young player was born in the province of Santa Fe in Argentina and spent his youth playing for San Martin de Progreso and Proyecto Crecer. After a few seasons in France, Sala was spotted by European sides and moved to Bordeaux at the age of 18. Although he was not a ‘hot prospect’ at his youth club, he made the grade at Bordeaux after two loan spells at Charlton Athletic.

Despite being a highly-rated player in France, Sala has a hard time convincing many clubs to sign him. The club he joined is one of the most prestigious in the world, and he wants to prove himself to Santiago Solari and the rest of the Real Madrid hierarchy. The decision to let him leave Cardiff is also understandable as he was a favourite of fans in his native country. The club, along with the coach Santiago Solari, will surely benefit from Emiliano’s skills and determination.

The Spanish giants are in desperate need of a forward after the plane he was on crashed over the English Channel. Sala has been a late-blooming talent for the club and has long wanted to move to a bigger club. With the arrival of the new winger, Sala could finally start the next chapter of his career. It seems that Real Madrid have finally spotted Sala’s potential and are eager to sign him.

Jadon Sancho wants to join Manchester City

It is not uncommon for the player to discuss a move to Manchester City with his close friends. The former PSG star spent two years at the Etihad and had been linked with the Premier League’s top two sides – Manchester United and Tottenham – before being forced out of his contract by his own club. Despite the rift, Sancho is still willing to return to Manchester City and has confirmed to friends that he would be more than happy to join Pep Guardiola’s side.

The City winger has reportedly been offered a PS73 million transfer fee by Man United. The move is expected to be finalised in the coming days, with both parties having an opportunity to discuss a new contract. Sancho has also been linked with a move to Manchester United after the club’s humiliating 4-0 defeat at Old Trafford last November. Sancho is the second most expensive English player after Harry Maguire, who was signed by Manchester United for 80 million pounds ($97 million).

Although Sancho has not played a first-team game for Manchester City since his move to Dortmund in 2017, he is a highly touted young talent. Sancho has scored three goals and provided six assists in his last three seasons for the Bundesliga side. Only Lionel Messi and Neymar have more assists in the top five European leagues since the 2018/19 campaign. So, the City boss is not convinced that he can bring the promising youngster back to his home town.
