Man United new boss Ralf Rangnick sends warning as Cristiano Ronaldo gets PSG offer

Published

on

Excitement abounds at Manchester United after Ralf Rangnick officially took over the reins as manager on Friday.

After experiencing work visa difficulties Rangnick has now taken over from Michael Carrick, who decided to leave the club rather than work under the German.

The 63-year-old will take charge of his first game against Crystal Palace on Sunday and is already looking ahead to the future.

The Mirror revealed that the United board have full faith in Rangnick and are ready to back him with as much as £100million to strengthen the squad in 2022.

It is early days of the new era, but let Mirror Football take you through the latest news lines and rumours concerning United.

Rangnick sends transfer warning

Rangnick played down the possibility of a flurry of transfers in the January window in his first press conference on Friday morning.

Rangnick was quick to dismiss rumours over Erling Haaland as “nonsense”, before making a joke about Kylian Mbappe and Robert Lewandowski.

“We haven’t spoken about new players and it’s not the time to speak about new players,” he added.

“It’s the time to get to know the current squad in detail. This is the major focus for the next couple of weeks, to get to know the players that we have currently.

“The squad is definitely not too small, there are enough players in the squad. Maybe at Christmas or after Christmas, there will be a possible time to speak about possible transfers in the winter.

“In my experience, winter is not the best possible time for sustainable transfers and, with this quality of players we have here, it would in theory only make sense if you can get players who can almost guarantee you more quality.”

Ronaldo offered to PSG

Cristiano Ronaldo was the star of the show for United against Arsenal on Thursday night, scoring twice in the 3-2 win.

But the rumours continue to swirl about how the 36-year-old will fit in under Rangnick’s management.

El Nacional reports that Jorge Mendes is already one step ahead, having offered his client to Paris Saint-Germain to replace Kylian Mbappe, who is reportedly set to join Real Madrid next summer.

Mbappe is out of contract on July 1 and is refusing to put pen to a new deal after Real saw two massive bids rejected for the French striker in the summer.

Mendes is apparently keen to unite Ronaldo with his long-time foe Lionel Messi at PSG before the duo retire.

Report: Chelsea agree personal terms with Inter Milan superstar

Published

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…

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

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).”

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).
