Erik ten Hag closing 27-years old as a replacement for outgoing star

Published

Dean Henderson looks unlikely to be warming the bench at Manchester United next season.

The 25-year-old looked set to start last season as United’s number one but a bout of long Covid meant he missed out on the start of the season.

This allowed David de Gea a chance to re-state his claim for the spot and he took that chance with open arms, putting in one of the best seasons of his career that won him the Players’ Player of the Year award.

This left a disgruntled and ambitious Henderson languishing on the sidelines. A January loan deal was denied, further frustrating the Whitehaven man.

United now look set to finally allow the England hopeful to leave, with a deal with newly-promoted Nottingham Forest said to be close.

According to transfer guru Fabriziano Romano, the only hold up to the deal is the eventual option-to-buy figure, which has been negotiated around the £20 million mark.

Romano says that the option could be left out of the deal altogether, making it a straight loan.

United will pay a portion of his wages.

With Lee Grant also having left this month, this leaves just Tom Heaton as backup to De Gea at the club.

And according to The Athletic’s Laurie Whitwell, the club is in two minds as to whether they think the 36 year old will provide enough cover or whether they should bolster.

“Tom Heaton is thought more than capable of stepping up as No 2, but United might step into the market with Watford’s Daniel Bachmann under consideration at a cost of between £2 million and £4 million,” Whitwell claims.

The 27 year old is backup to former Red Ben Foster at Watford and has played 41 games at Vicarage Road.

The Hornets’ relegation means that they will be keen to reduce the wage bill, meaning that the Austrian should be available at a cut-down price.

Barcelona plan to offer €30 million for 24-year-old La Liga defender

Published

Even though we are just a few weeks away until the transfer window slams to a shut, Barcelona remain active in the market and are still looking for ways to strengthen their squad.

The Catalans have roped in a slew of top-quality stars in the month of July, including star striker Robert Lewandowski. Although they are yet to sign a player in August, Xavi has set his sights firmly on a few players.

One of those players in question is Juan Foyth. The Villarreal starlet has been identified as the ideal replacement for Sergino Dest as Barcelona look for a reliable right-back that can offer more quality than the American international.

Indeed, Barça have been left frustrated by Dest’s lack of progress at Camp Nou. They are prepared to sanction the exit of the former Ajax starlet, with Manchester United among the clubs in contention to snap him up by the end of the month.

While Dest’s exit from Camp Nou could soon be on the horizon, Barcelona are actively trying to lure Foyth away from Villarreal. The club are even weighing up an offer for the young Argentine, according to Gerard Romero.

The reputed Spanish journalist suggests Barça are considering a bid of around €30 million plus add-ons for Foyth, in an attempt to convince Villarreal this summer.

The Catalans are aware of the fact that the Yellow Submarines rate the defender highly due to his tremendous success in La Liga. In addition to his form, he offers a lot of versatility to the table and with time on his side, he could be a smart long-term investment for the club.

As per today’s version of AS (news image provided below), the Real Madrid superstar is really tempted by the offer made by the Red Devils.

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
