Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Nemanja Matic are doubts for Manchester United’s Premier League match at Norwich on Saturday.

Wan-Bissaka was carried off at the end of the 1-1 Champions League draw with Young Boys on Wednesday night and Nemanja Matic, the captain two days ago, has been unwell this week.

United manager Ralf Rangnick confirmed Matic had tested negative for Covid-19 and admitted he would not receive clarity on Matic or Wan-Bissaka until the United players report for training at 2pm on Friday.

“We have two or three question marks behind players,” Rangnick explained. “But since they haven’t shown up yet because we train at two o’clock, we have to wait until after or before the training session, until the doctor and medical department can tell me what the current situation is like.

“Aaron received one or two knocks in the game. There is still a question mark behind Nemanja Matic. He had a cold, I wouldn’t call it flu, he tested negatively for Covid. I am still hoping he can be available but we have to wait how he feels today.”

Ralf Rangnick is righting the wrongs at Manchester Unitedmen
Rangnick made 11 changes to the United team against Young Boys and they could line up in an unchanged XI for the third Premier League game running at Norwich.


“We trained literally in two different groups,” Rangnick explained of their preparation this week. “Before the game on Wednesday, we trained with the team that played against Young Boys in detail to prepare them for the game.


“The other group that played against Palace on Sunday had a day off on Tuesday and we started to prepare them for the game tomorrow on Wednesday, Thursday and, obviously, today is the last day for the preparation of the game.”

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.

However, it remains to be seen whether Villarreal are open to sanctioning the exit of one of their prized defensive assets, especially at this stage of the transfer market

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?
