Player said to be ‘very close’ to signing for Arsenal – Offer of around €30m, Gunners ‘better…

Published

Arsenal and Barcelona have been pushed forward as Álvaro Morata’s two suitors in recent weeks.

Juventus took the striker on a loan deal from Atlético Madrid, with a buying option set at €35m this summer. The Serie A side are requesting a discount, something his parent club are refusing to provide.

The situation allowed Arsenal and Barcelona to include him in their transfer target list.

Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah have deals expiring on June 30th. Reports in the UK have explained the latter is close to signing a new contract at the Emirates. That, however, will not stop the Gunners from investing on a new No.9.

AS on Thursday have named Arsenal as an ‘interested’ party in Morata as they are ‘very attentive’ to the Spain international’s situation.

Meanwhile, Sport have now come up with a report, titled: ‘Álvaro Morata, close to signing for Arsenal’.

In need of a new striker for next season, Mikel Arteta’s side are ‘betting heavily’ on the former Chelsea man, whose contract at Atlético runs down in 2023.

Arsenal have ‘wanted him for a long time’ and have ‘appeared’ now after Juve refused to make the player’s stay permanent.

It’s stated the Premier League club have made an offer of around €30m for the frontman and are ‘very close’ to securing his services.

Arsenal have also showed interest in Barcelona’s Memphis Depay. If the deal for Morata were to take shape, then it makes it difficult for the Dutchman to move to the Emirates.

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.

Erik ten Hag has called up Charlie McNeill to first team training, with the young striker pictured in training on Wednesday.

The call up is a great way for McNeill to make an impression on the Manchester United manager, amid a tricky start to the season.

Man United facing two-way transfer problems as Erik ten Hag looks to offload six stars

Published

By

Manchester United are focused on trying to bring in at least three new signings before deadline day to halt a season already mired in crisis.

But offloading existing players has become just as problematic for United as persuading new names to join Erik ten Hag’s abject side, which currently sits rock-bottom of the Premier League.

United want to get rid of at least six players – Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Axel Tuanzebe, James Garner and Brandon Williams – before deadline day in a fortnight’s time.

But so far there have been no takers for United’s cast-offs, with many on such exorbitant wages or simply not considered good enough for other clubs to decide to take them on.

Although United managed to sell Andreas Pereira to Fulham for £8.5million and send Alex Telles out on loan to Sevilla for the season, shifting other players to raise funds is proving tricky.

Bailly, who failed to even make the nine-man bench for ten Hag’s first two United games, has been told he can leave, but no club has so far made a firm move for the 28-year-old defender.

West Ham, Marseille and Monaco have all expressed interest in the Ivory Coast international, but with two years left on a deal worth £100,000-a-week, Bailly’s wages are proving a stumbling block.

Those clubs interested in Bailly want to take him on loan, with United continuing to pay a significant chunk of his wages. It is a similar story with most of the players United want to jettison.

United, in contrast, want a permanent sale, to raise revenue to reinvest in the players ten Hag needs to bolster his squad after beginning his tenure with defeats to Brighton and Brentford.

Bailly’s situation is indicative of the lack of effective leadership at United, which has seen the club hand lucrative, long-term contracts to players who have barely featured in recent seasons.

In the case of Bailly, he signed a contract extension in April 2021, keeping him at United until 2023, with the option for a further year. Yet since signing that new deal, Bailly has made just eight Premier League appearances and has not made a competitive appearance for United since December last year.

It is a familiar story with Jones, who in February 2019 penned a new deal until 2023, with an option for an extra year, but in that time has made just 21 appearances. There has been little interest in Wan-Bissaka, bought from Crystal Palace for £50m in 2019 under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but who has been told by ten Hag to find a new club.

Yet while United are struggling to persuade players to come to Old Trafford, getting them out of the door is proving just as taxing, symbolic of a club in decline and without any coherent strategy.
