Man United star identifies ‘key issue’ for the Club to solve as they search for form and results

Published

Raphael Varane believes Manchester United have all the qualities they need to compete in every competition, it is just their lack of self-belief that is holding them back.

The Red Devils have made a patchy start to the season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, losing three of their last four games across all competitions.

There have been encouraging signs, especially in the rousing wins over Leeds United and Newcastle United, but there is clearly work to be done, as illustrated by recent defeats to West Ham, Young Boys and Aston Villa.

Varane, who arrived as a new signing in the summer along with Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho, believes there is a lot more to come from Manchester United, but they do not have the belief to show it just yet.

‘What I’ve been able to see is, with my team-mates, there’s a lot of quality in our squad, in our team,’ he said. ‘We’ve got huge potential, I’m convinced of it.

‘We’re working really hard, we’re working well in training. I think we’re improving all the time. Since the start of the season I think we’re on a positive, upward curve.

‘I think that there’s talent, there’s experience there as well. We’ve got everything you need to have that belief that you can do well.

‘I think that’s a really key issue – we’ve got to believe in ourselves, be convinced that we can do it, we have got to be ambitious, believe in our own potential and then I think you can achieve things when you do that.

‘There’s everything there in the right place. Just concentrate on the little details but keep believing and have that positive mentality.

‘I believe that each time we go into a game, we go on that track and keep on that road of positivity, think on how we can improve in little details and then I think we’ll be there. As I say, we’re on the right road.’

Varane will have a new centre-back partner on Wednesday and possibly for ‘a few weeks’ after Harry Maguire injured his calf against Aston Villa on Saturday.

Solskjaer said ahead of the Villarreal game: ‘Harry is more or less definitely out, it doesn’t look good.

‘It is his calf, that might take a few weeks. Let’s see how quickly he recovers.’

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.

Man Utd ready to agree net £34million+ contract for signing, guarantee stability for decades – AS

Published

on

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

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.

The famous Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd have tabled a five year deal that will make the midfielder earn a net salary of more than £34million (40 million euros).

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?
