Manchester United told to sign £160m Premier League midfielder

Former Manchester United star, Paul Parker has told the club to spend the cash on England midfielder Declan Rice. Parker is recommending the player because he has Premier League experience, adding that the club does not need to sign a player from another league. According to him, Manchester United are capable of signing Rice, who is worth £100m, for £160m and also provide him with whatever he wants. He described the current midfield setting at United comprising of Nemanja Matic, Fred, Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes and the injured Paul Pogba as embarrassing. “Manchester United at the moment are shopping in a bargain basement,” He was quoted to have said by Metro. “For Declan Rice, if he’s [worth] £100m, spend £160m.

Late Moutinho strike sees Wolves beat disjointed Man Utd

Joao Moutinho's late strike saw Wolves win their first league game at Old Trafford in almost 42 years, beating a disjointed Manchester United 1-0 in the Premier League. Wolves' last league victory at Old Trafford came in February 1980, and they should have been ahead at half-time. They registered 15 shots to Man Utd's four in the first half - the first team to have more attempts than United at home since Liverpool in December 2018. But Bruno Lage's side had scored just one goal in their previous six Premier League games, so it was no surprise that the half ended goalless, despite early saves from David de Gea to keep Daniel Podence and Ruben Neves at bay. Man Utd were better after the break and the introduction of Bruno Fernandes improved them further. He struck the crossbar i...

Mallorca vs Barcelona: Xavi slams LaLiga over ‘crazy’ decision

Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez, has said it is “crazy” that this weekend’s match against Mallorca will go ahead, despite a COVID-19 outbreak at the club.

Thomas Tuchel has said that he is happy that his Chelsea team can survive without their top striker, Romelu Lukaku and other top stars who are injured at the moment.

Lukaku has missed The Blues last seven matches due to an ankle injury but is now on the verge of returning.

Chelsea facing striker crisis with Lukaku, Werner injured

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel is facing a striker crisis after Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner both went off injured against Malmo on Wednesday night. The Blues went on to win 4-0 in the Champions League clash, thanks to goals from Jorginho (2), Andreas Christensen and Kai Havertz.

Werner soon followed him off the bench, with what appeared to be a hamstring problem.
