MU abandoned Sancho, learned Tottenham to borrow 135 million pounds of Barca’s blockbuster

With the latest moves, Dortmund officially blocked Jadon Sancho to MU. Therefore, the leadership of “Red Devils” is looking for a name that deserves to be replaced.

Coach Solskjaer still needs a class winger. That is the reason why MU has been pursuing Jadon Sancho closely in recent years. But recently, Borussia Dortmund director Sebastian Kehl once again confirmed that their star will not leave this summer.

Therefore, it is time for MU to temporarily withdraw to wait until next summer, and at the same time focus on time and money to replenish forces in other positions. This became even more pressing following their Premier League opening-day defeat.

According to the Daily Record, big boss Ed Woodward has moved to negotiate with Barcelona about Ousmane Dembele’s case.

The 23-year-old is considered the second most expensive deal in Barcelona history. Despite just recovering from a long-term injury, Dembele is not in the plan of new head coach Ronald Koeman, who is making a radical revolution at the Nou Camp.

The source said that MU did not dare to take risks and just wanted to bring the French player to Old Trafford under a season-long loan agreement.

In response to the British counterpart, Barcelona was ready to part with Dembele on a loan, but only when a compulsory purchase-out clause appeared in the agreement. It is known that the big La Liga wants to receive £ 90 million (98 million euros) from MU in this deal. In addition, the MU side also has to pay the entire salary for Dembele. This makes the negotiations appear to face certain difficulties.

This move is almost similar to the case of Gareth Bale from Real who just returned to Tottenham a few days ago. This is also a player with a history of injury and carries quite a high risk when playing. However, Real only needs Tottenham to pay half the salary and activate the optional terms for the London team to buy Bale at the end of the season.

Barcelona recruited Dembele from Dortmund for £ 135 million in 2017, to replace Neymar with PSG. Dembele’s on-field performance was not bad. However, his problem is chronic injuries, making the Nou Camp team impatient.

Meanwhile, MU lacks a factor that is capable of mutation in public goods. The defeat of Crystal Palace is a painful blow to the ambition to conquer the Premier League throne after many years of waiting. Therefore, “Red Devils” want to bring Dembele to Old Trafford to strengthen the race that promises fierce in this season.

Chelsea battle Liverpool in the second round of the Premier League

The Stamford Bridge Stadium on Sunday afternoon 20/9 saw a confrontation between the challenger Chelsea – the strongest spending team in the summer of 2020, with the defending champions Liverpool.

Last season, Liverpool won 15 games with a difference of one goal on the Premier League championship. They opened the new season with a similar victory over Leeds (score 4-3). In the last 14 matches, Liverpool conceded 19 goals in total. This situation is not easy to accept, especially for the fans who are familiar with the overwhelming style of teachers and students Jurgen Klopp.

With a spend of $ 32 million to recruit midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Bayern, the Anfield team promises to create a new position. The Spain international is the second rookie behind left-back Kostas Tsimikas and is considered the perfect piece for Liverpool’s midfield. However, Thiago is probably not ready to play in this important match.

Chelsea poured more than $ 260 million to rebuild the squad this summer, aiming to close the gap with Liverpool. Klopp once said Liverpool cannot spend such money because they do not have the backing of tycoons. The statement of the Liverpool coach was later rejected by Frank Lampard. Therefore, the confrontation on the coaching chair in this match is also worth the wait.

This is a good time for Liverpool to face Chelsea, when Lampard still has to accept an unstable goalkeeper like Kepa Arrizabalaga in the wooden frame. Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech are not fully fit and Timo Werner and Kai Havertz have not fully integrated. But Werner still showed sharpness in the promotion to Brighton while Havertz has the ability to change the game at any time.

* Force information: Lampard has not confirmed whether recruits Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva are capable of playing or not. Mateo Kovacic returned from suspension but Christian Pulisic was still absent. Liverpool don’t have Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain but Xherdan Shaqiri and Tsimikas are ready to return.

Chelsea will set the record for most spending in the history of the Premier League

Chelsea are on the way to setting the record for most spending in history in the Premier League in a season after a series of blockbuster transfers.

Before the Financial Fairness Law was born, Chelsea boss Roman Abramovich spent £ 290 million on 19 new players in the first 15 months. If adjusted for inflation it would be around £ 450 million today.

But now, if Chelsea completes the purchase of Kai Havertz from Leverkusen for a club record £ 90 million they will set the highest spend of a Premier League team.

Havertz will follow in the footsteps of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell when these four players are recruited by the Blues for a fee of about £ 230 million. 

Aside from Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr brought in on a free transfer, it’s clear Abramovich has returned to his own image in the early years of taking over. 

There are six weeks left before the transfer window closes, Chelsea still has targets to pursue, such as Declan Rice of West Ham.

The London club did not spend in January and last summer. Due to the FIFA ban, they were only able to convert the Mateo Kovacic loan agreement into a permanent purchase for £ 40 million.

During this time, Chelsea raised more than £ 100m from the sale of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid and £ 50m from Atletico Madrid to Alvaro Morata.

The departure of Hazard and Morata has helped reduce the salary bill, as was the case with David Luiz, Pedro and Willian recently.

Furthermore, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, UEFA agreed to loosen restrictions on the Financial Fairness Law that made Chelsea’s spending more flexible.

Clubs that spend the most in a season:

Chelsea 2020 – £ 230 million (Kai Havertz most expensive * – 90 million)

Man City 2017 – £ 223.8 million (Mendi most expensive – 51.75 million)

Man City 2015 – £ 187.09 million (De Bruyne is the most expensive – 54 million)

Chelsea 2017 – £ 186.03 million (Morata most expensive – 59.4 million)

Man Utd 2014 – £ 175.82 million (Di Maria is the most expensive – 67.5 million)

Man Utd 2016 – £ 166.5 million (Pogba most expensive – 94.5 million)

Van de Beek was the player of the big game, or scored the decisive goal

A remarkable point of Van de Beek, a player about to join MU, is often scoring decisive in big matches.

MU is very close to the first rookie this summer. According to the Daily Star revealed, the chief negotiator of the “Red Devils”, Matt Judge, went to the Netherlands to negotiate and reach a personal agreement with Donny Van De Beek. In addition, Judge also found a common voice with Ajax, the player’s club.

The source revealed that Ajax agreed to the £ 40 million price offered by MU. The Dutch midfielder will sign a 5-year contract with an automatic 12-month extension. The salary of this player at Old Trafford has not been disclosed.

MU’s advantage in this deal is Ajax’s CEO, Edwin Van Der Sar is the old man of the club. In addition, many sources revealed that Real Madrid had reached an agreement to recruit Van De Beek for £ 55 million but canceled the contract due to the influence of the Covid-19 translation.

According to the Whoscored website, Donny Van de Beek is a type of player who likes to play short ball, has the ability to penetrate the penalty area well and release high-risk decisive passes. This gameplay has a similarity with Bruno Fernandes, the soul of the MU midfield at the moment.

Another notable point about Van De Beek is that this player regularly scores in important matches in the Champions League. In the 2018/19 season, the Dutch midfielder scored 4 goals in the European Cup and 3 of them are very important.

The first was the opening phase in the second minute against Dynamo Kiev in the preliminary round. This goal helped Ajax to create an advantage early and easily won 3-1. Next was a 1-1 equalization when he had to be a guest of Juventus in the quarterfinals. This is the premise to create a comeback of Ajax that makes Ronaldo and his teammates take the bitter fruit.

The final goal in the Champions League 2018/19 was the goal against Tottenham in the semi-final first leg. It was the only goal in the game and if Ajax held this advantage in the second leg, they would have made it to the final.

In the 2019/20 Champions League, Donny Van De Beek continued to prove “he is a player of big games” when scoring against two famous teams Chelsea and Valencia. Hopefully, the Dutch midfielder will continue to keep his scoring style in these important matches when he joins MU, because “Red Devils” will have many big matches this season.

Which 2 Stars does Aston Villa want to change?

To get the very talented midfielder Jack Grealish from Aston Villa, MU will have to let two players in the defensive line land in the Birmingham team in the transfer window this summer.

MU has kept an eye on Jack Grealish – the famous Aston Villa attacking midfielder for a long time. Despite the fact that the 24-year-old British star has caused many scandals in the past, such as hiding in isolation to go out to play and causing traffic accidents during the Covid-19 season, “Red Devils” still hit The price is very high for this player’s expertise.

This is good news for “Red Devils” as they are closer to owning their first quality rookie this summer than ever. The two goals that coach Dean Smith and Aston Villa want to have are also MU players who need to liquidate at the “Theater of Dreams”.

With Dalot, for a long time, the Portuguese player is no longer part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plan at MU when the Norwegian teacher still considers Aaron Wan-Bissaka to be the first choice at the right-back position of the club. this.

Meanwhile, former Argentina player – Romero will almost have to find a new stop when Dean Henderson has just signed an extension contract until 2025 with the “Red Devils” and David De Gea is still a monument not easy to rush to the goal of the team that finished third in the Premier League last season.

The richest club in the Premier League buys New Drogba

Wolverhampton is the richest in the Premier League but they are targeting cheap but quality goals on the transfer market.

The Premier League is a playground full of wealthy clubs not only for the huge revenue generated by the tournament but also for the large number of businessmen and corporations investing in the clubs. Fulham is one of three teams to be promoted next season and their owners have assets of more than $ 9 billion.

But Fulham, even MU and Man City, is still nothing compared to Wolverhampton, the team held by Fosun International from China with a total assets of 103.29 billion USD. The group is 4.6 times richer than the Man City owned group and 21 times more than the Glazer family that owns MU, 

With the support of Fosun International, Wolves have steadily competed for the top 6 spots after reaching the rank of 6. After reaching the finish of the seventh season of 2019/20, Wolves will continue to aim for the Champions League group . Although they do not have the thickness of competing in the top 4 like Tottenham, Leicester City or Arsenal , but have a strong financial ability to allow this team to dream big and they will concretize that goal by signing contracts. berries in the summer of this year.

Recently the English press said the club is aiming for two big goals for the defensive midfielder and the striker position. They have long been aiming for a central midfielder to build a play that forces the pitch instead of playing a counterattack, and the plug-in position may need new players due to Raul Jimenez being top European teams.

The most expensive squad includes 5 Chelsea players and 4 MU

The fact that Alexis Sanchez officially left MU to Inter has created the most expensive “leaving” squad in Premier League history both in fees and wages.
Alexis Sanchez finally ended the nightmare at MU by early termination of a 2-year contract to switch to Inter in free form.
When MU spent over £ 500,000 a week for Sanchez, they believed he was the missing piece in the squad. But after 2 and a half years there are only 3 goals in the Premier League, which is one of the most failed signings in the tournament’s history.

These include the most expensive failures in Premier League history, from Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa, MU midfielder Di Maria to Shevchenko or Torres at the Blues.
Kepa Arrizabalaga arrived at Chelsea as the most expensive goalkeeper in history for a fee of £ 71.6 million. But less than 2 years later, they are trying to push him away after a series of unacceptable mistakes.
In defense, Winston Bogarde came to Chelsea from Barcelona for a salary of £ 40,000 a week, a huge sum at the beginning of the century. For one thing, the Dutchman often befriends the bench, playing only 11 times in 4 years.
Meanwhile, Eliaquim Mangala cost a huge transfer of City up to 43.5 million pounds, while receiving 12.5 million pounds of salary. As a result, the club has to pay an average of £ 1 million for each midfielder’s appearance.
For Phil Jones, MU spent nearly 20 million pounds for former Blackburn star, the number in 2011. But in nearly a decade, he only played 165 times in the Premier League and still receive a salary of 75,000 pounds per week.
In midfield, Juan Veron became the most expensive player in Premier League history for a fee of £ 28.1 million to Man Utd in 2001. After two unimpressive years, he was sold out to Chelsea.
In the case of Alberto Aquilani, Liverpool spent £ 18 million hoping to replace Xabi Alonso. However, the Italian midfielder, although earning more than £ 100,000 a week, plays only 18 matches in the Premier League. Liverpool finally pocketed a mere £ 2 million when sold.
Premier League champion with Leicester, Daniel Drinkwater eventually became a commodity for Chelsea, the team had to spend 34 million pounds on the transfer fee and 100,000 salary per week just to see the midfielder sit on reserve and loan. .

Man Utd must feel regret when he spent 59.8 million pounds for Angel Di Maria. The former Real Madrid star does not deserve the huge salary of £ 280,000 per week.
The same thing happened to Alexis Sanchez, who cost the “Reds” £ 59.4 million in wages.
Chelsea is suffering with strikers Fernando Torres and Andriy Shevchenko. The first one costs £ 50 million and the salary is 150,000 euros, while the second costs £ 30.8 million and the salary of £ 190,000, but ultimately only “left” with the adventure failed.

The ultimate representation of English football in the European arena

English football is facing the prospect of empty-handed on the continental playground this season, all hopes of the land of fog are now on Manchester United.

Last season, it could be said that the continental playground was the private catwalk of the English teams. If the Champions League final last season was the clash between Liverpool and Tottenham, the Europa League throne match was also a London civil war between Arsenal and Chelsea.

However, by the season this year, the situation has changed dramatically. The defending champion and runner-up of the Champions League soon were eliminated from the round of 16, and England’s No. 1 hope was that Man City had to stop before Lyon.

MU

Thus, English football was completely absent in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Meanwhile in the Europa League arena, the only representative of the misty country still playing is MU.

On Monday morning, August 17, the Red Devils will have to face Europa League giants Sevilla in the semifinals 1. As the last hope of English football in the European arena, MU of course spend the highest and they are also the biggest contenders. If they beat Sevilla, Solskjaer teachers and students will win the first ticket to the Europa League final and go a long way to the goal of conquering the European title.

On the other side of the front line, Sevilla and Spanish football also fall into a similar situation. The best representatives of the bullshit such as Real Madrid, Barcelona or Ateltico Madrid have all turned on the field in the Champions League, and now Sevilla is the last hope of Spanish football in the European arena. It would be no exaggeration to say that MU and Sevilla are the two names that hold the reputation of a football industry in this season.

The latest developments of the Europa League semi-final between MU and Sevilla will be continuously updated at our website, inviting readers to watch.

The richest club in the Premier League buys New Drogba (Part 2)

Known for their abundant physical strength and non-collision, Gueye is used at the bottom of the midfield to protect the central defenders as well as pressing when the home team pushes the team up. Gueye is actually considered to be a better tackle than Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante, from 2015/16 to 2018/19 Gueye was 3 times more successful than Kante in the successful tackle category and 2 times in the Premier League.

Gueye is 30 years old but it doesn’t matter to Wolves as he continues to lead the Ligue 1 field of the past season and will help free the other Wolves midfielders to support the attack. PSG bought Gueye from Everton for £ 30 million but this summer the Senegalese could only cost around £ 22 million for Wolves.

As a forward striker, Wolves want to have Koln’s Jhon Cordoba after Cordoba refuses to extend the 14th club in the Bundesliga . This Colombian is Koln’s number one striker this season with 13 goals in the league.

Height 1m88 and weighs about 85kg, Cordoba can look almost identical to Didier Drogba and is known for his similar gameplay to the Ivory Coast legend. According to Express, Cordoba is more resilient than any Wolves striker and especially very fast when breaking offside, but his weakness is a bit awkward when passing the ball, which makes the accuracy of the walls lack stability.

If Jimenez stays at Wolves then Cordoba, if purchased, could play in lower-kick Wolves matches against big teams, allowing coach Nuno Santo to rotate the striker position instead of relying almost entirely on Jimenez all season. And combined with the addition of Gueye, Wolves can fully believe in a ticket to the European Cup.

Who are the 7 Chelsea players liquidated to overhaul the squad?

After Chelsea won the Champions League ticket, coach Frank Lampard is planning to overhaul the squad with about 7 players at risk of being liquidated.

Chelsea have strongly complemented the attack with Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, while waiting for more Kai Havertz.

After that, Lampard determined to overhaul the defense with receiving 54 goals lost last season. That makes the foothold of Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen, Emerson Palmieri, Marcos Alonso increasingly uncertain.

Any major addition to the Blues’ central defender position will result in Zouma being sold. Everton still want the player they borrowed in the 2018/19 season but this time it could be a permanent purchase.

For Christensen, Lampard did not have much time to wait for the 25-year-old to improve, because he needed reliable central defenders in both fitness and performance, something the Danish player could not guarantee.

On the left, Emerson continued to be attracted by former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte to Inter Milan this summer. It was the best way for him to escape the bench at Stamford Bridge.

Alonso is perfectly capable of taking on the left-back position in the four-man defense, but he is less convinced as a long-term option here.

In midfield, Lampard does not want to lose one of his few world-class players, N’Golo Kante, but if you need money to reinvest, this is a mandatory option.

Kante has turned 29 and his tireless body starts to have problems. The French midfielder has been continuously injured in injury over the past year, especially the hamstring area.

Meanwhile, Jorginho has become less and less in Lampard’s plan the way he has endured on the bench over time. Similarly is Ross Barkley, who has very limited use.
