Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was booed by Man United fans after their defeat to Watford

Bruno Fernandes pleaded with Manchester United fans to not blame Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for their heavy defeat away to Watford on Saturday.

United were crushed at Vicarage Road after goals from Joshua King, Ismaila Sarr, Joao Pedro and Emmanuel Dennis condemned the Red Devils to another disappointing afternoon.

Harry Maguire was also sent off, picking up a second yellow card for a clumsy challenge to pile on the misery of the afternoon in Hertfordshire.

Donny van de Beek did pull a goal back to make it 2-1 shortly after coming on in the second half, but the result leaves Solskjaer in an extremely precarious position.

Fans have long been on the edge, with many calling for a change and Saturday’s performance will have done nothing to change those views.

As the Norwegian and his players walked over to show their appreciation to the travelling supporters, Solskjaer could be seen putting his hands up and apologising for his side’s display – with several fans greeting his gestures with a large chorus of boos.

Clearly infuriated by what he could hear, Fernandes proceeded to move closer towards Solskjaer – whilst the rest of the team stayed back sheepishly, and began to point his finger to himself and the rest of the team.

By looking at the anger on his face and the way he pointed, it was clear that Fernandes wanted the blame deflected off his manager and instead wanted him and his teammates to take the brunt of the displeasure voiced by supporters.

It remains to be seen if Solskjaer will still be in a job come United’s next game, which is an away trip to Villarreal in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The likes of Brendan Rodgers, Zinedine Zidane and Erik Ten Haag have been touted as possible candidates for the job should the Norwegian lose his job.

Report: Chelsea agree personal terms with Inter Milan superstar

Chelsea look to be closing in on the signing of 19-year-old midfielder Cesare Casadei.

The Blues are reportedly agreeing personal terms with the Inter Milan youngster ahead of what is expected to be a €15m (plus add-ons) transfer. Inter had been looking for around €20m all told.

As per Fabrizio Romano, and others, the highly promising Italy youth international, though who has yet to make his senior professional debut, has agreed a six-year deal with the Blues, choosing Chelsea over the likes of OGC Nice in France and US Sassuolo in Italy.

Presumably, Casadei will not be joining the Chelsea first-team right away, though post-Brexit work permit rules are fairly esoteric and confusing.

Perhaps he will end up joining one of the aforementioned teams on loan to build up the necessary professional experience? Just speculating…

While the two teams have yet to agree a transfer, this looks to be drawing to a successful conclusion for us, adding yet another teenager talent to the team as we look to build for not only this season but for many seasons in the future.

Mikel Arteta drops Youri Tielemans hint as Arsenal can sign ‘more complete’ N’Golo Kante

Published

Today’s Arsenal transfer round-up on Tuesday, August 16.

Tielemans hint

Mikel Arteta’s increased use of Granit Xhaka could mean that Arsenal are close to giving up on transfer target Youri Tielemans.

The Gunners are still chasing a deal for the Leicester City midfielder but have seen their chances dwindle of doing a deal this summer and now, despite Xhaka previously saying he had come close to leaving, the club could have to do without a new addition.

Xhaka is now part of a new leadership group at the Emirates Stadium, a possible indication that he may remain at the club and throw a move for Tielemans into doubt.

Kante replacement

With Tielemans becoming less and less attainable this season, Arsenal have reportedly turned their attention elsewhere.

According to the Express, Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo is attracting interest from some of Europe’s top clubs including the Gunners and Manchester United. Having been previously compared with Kante, Arsenal’s desire to sign Caicedo is understandable.

South American football expert Tim Vickery said, “A year ago he was saying that Kante of Chelsea is his role model but he is already more than that. He already offers more in the final third.”

Yeremi Pino flight explained

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has cleared the air regarding Yeremi Pino and denies that a bid has been made for him.

Romano told CaughtOffside, “Many clubs have been following Yeremi Pino for months, he is a top player of the future that at least three Premier League clubs have been monitoring for some time.

“No proposals have been made yet to Villarreal, who would like more than €50m for their young star; it will not be an easy negotiation.

“As for the rumours about Arsenal – Edu was not travelling to Spain to meet Villarreal, also because Pino’s agents are based in the UK (Stellar Group).”

Erik Ten Hag believes £64,000 a week player will agree to join Man United – Report

Published

Despite signing two defenders this summer, Manchester United’s backline has been terrible this season and yet another defender is linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Yesterday, we covered a story (via Sport) claiming that the Red Devils have submitted an offer to sign Sergino Dest, who has received a clear message to leave Barcelona.

Today, the Spanish news source have covered another report and stated that the American international has not been able to impress in the last two years, moreover, he failed to convince Xavi in pre-season. Therefore, his exit is considered essential.

Erik ten Hag wants to get rid of Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer so that he can complete the signing of Dest, who is valued at 20 million euros.

The Catalan media outlet claim the Dutch manager believes that the 21-year-old Barca defender will agree (say Yes) to join Man United.

Ten Hag really needs to understand that players from the Netherlands or connections with Ajax are not guaranteed to solve the conundrum at Old Trafford.

Under Van Gaal, Depay and Blind failed to shine for Man United. For Ten Hag, thus far, the likes of Eriksen, Martinez and Malacia have not settled.

Now, he is pushing to sign another ex Ajax player in the form of Dest. The American was a hit in the Eredivisie but has proved to be average in the La Liga.

The youngster’s current contract at the Nou Camp will expire in 2025 and he earns around £64,000 a week (The Sun).
