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.

Best young player in 2020: Mason Greenwood

With brilliant performances, striker born in 2001 Mason Greenwood deserves to be the best young player in 2020.

Trust and give opportunities for mature players from the young training furnace that has been a tradition of MU since Sir Alex Ferguson. And when he took over the coaching position at Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continued this tradition after a break in the reigns of David Moyes, Luis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho. 

Under Solskjaer, many stars have had the opportunity to try fire in the English Premier League and European Cup. Of these, Greenwood is the most prominent face after he was picked up by coach Solskjaer to replace the first team Romelu Lukaku (transferred to Inter Milan).

Greenwood is having a booming season in Manchester. After 41 appearances in all competitions, the striker born in 2001 scored a total of 15 goals. Particularly in the Premier League, Greenwood had the 8th goal. 

More impressive, the student of Solskjaer’s coach scored 8 goals after only 31 shots. That means that on average 3.8 times to finish, he tore the opponent once.

With so many strong points such as finishing skills with both feet, inherent confidence, god speed, Greenwood is expected to be the future of MU and England.

Brandon Williams is also a star that impressed the coach Solskjaer. This season, the player born in 2001 has been trusted by the Norwegian strategist, 13 of them in the Premier League. 

Williams’s strengths are speed, aggressiveness and good basic technique. In the context of Luke Shaw is very sensitive to injury, the player with a modest height of 1.71 meters is giving MU new hopes on the left wing.

It would be flawed not to mention Algel Gomes and James Garner, two stars that are considered to have an open future. Unfortunately, Gomes refused to extend the contract with MU to look for new parking.

Who is Thiago Almada, the “new Messi” that MU is pursuing?

MU is pursuing Thiago Almada, a 19-year-old striker dubbed the “new Messi” of Argentine football.

Thiago Almada was born and raised in the Fuerte Apache neighborhood, the most famous slum in Buenos Aires. It is the home of the poor, the lair of criminals and also the home of Carlos Tevez.

Like Tevez, from an early age, Almada also has to choose between two paths, either making a crime, or becoming a soccer player.

Thiago Almada was born in the Fuerte Apache neighborhood.

Almada’s talent was soon revealed through street games. At the age of 4, Almada wore Santa Clara, the team that started to wing Tevez’s dream of becoming a professional player.

Outstanding performances in Santa Clara helped Almada the young boy caught the eye of Velez Sarsfield club scouts. He moved to Velez at the age of 5 and constantly impressed the youth teams of the club.

In 2018, Head coach Velez was a former MU player, Gabriel Heinze gave Almada the team debut when he was only 17 years old. Up to now, Almada has made 46 appearances for Velez and contributed 9 goals.

Impressive form in Velez helped Almada be called up to Argentina for the U20 South American 2019 tournament in Chile as the youngest player in the squad. In this tournament, Almada has a outstanding performance and scored 1 goal to help the Argentina U20 team win the runner-up.

Born in the Apache Fuerte neighborhood, it was no surprise that Almada idolized Carlos Tevez. But Almada’s style of play makes him compared to Messi more.

Almada has a height, weight similar to Messi so the ability to keep balance very well. The ability to dribble, accelerate and wriggle in a narrow space also makes many people think of Messi more than Tevez.

Almada likes to kick the wing and run into the middle to finish, or create for the team to score, although Heinze coach has trained him to be able to play well in many different positions in the attack. But Almada is different from Messi on the right foot, not the left.

The excellent performances in Velez helped Almada get the attention of many big clubs in Europe. Last summer, Man City asked to buy “new Messi” for £ 10 million, but Velez screamed £ 16 million and continued to retain their jewel.

Last September, Velez signed a four-year contract with Almada and set a release clause of £ 22 million.

However, this fee cannot reduce the interest of the big boys for the new Messi. In turn, MU, Arsenal and Inter Milan have all sent people to talk to Velez to find a way to buy Almada this summer.

What is the MU team consisting of all English players after the transfer?

MU absolutely can launch a squad of all English players after the summer transfer window.

Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deviated from the initial transfer policy of MU when bringing in Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo in January.

In the past, the Norwegian has favored the English market, targeting young and indigenous players that he feels might fit into his squad.

In the summer, it seems MU will return to this strategy by targeting three young English stars, Jadon Sancho, Jack Grealish and Jude Bellingham.

If all three were won, the “Red Devils” could line up an English squad, although it would have no room for David de Gea, Fred, Paul Pogba or Anthony Martial.

Goalkeeper: Dean Henderson

The loan star at Sheffield United is fully guaranteed a place in the squad next season as he proves quality to compete with De Gea.

Center-back: Harry Maguire, Axel Tuanzebe

When the future of Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are uncertain, the choice of MU center-back may be only 4 people. Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly will vie for positions alongside Maguire, but if Tuanzebe’s homegrown option is a great option.

Once on loan at Aston Villa, Tuanzebe was unlucky due to an injury but Solskjaer rated him very highly.

Wingers: Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw

Brandon Williams once pushed Shaw to the bench but the former Southampton defender seemed to be getting closer to his best before the season was suspended. And Wan-Bissaka has always been stable since coming to MU last summer.

Midfielders: Scott McTominay, Jude Bellingham, Jack Grealish

Without Pogba, Fred and Nemanja Matic, MU can rely on two young talents Grealish and Bellingham, alongside McTominay. With what has shown, Grealish proved capable of taking on the role of attacking midfielder of Bruno Fernandes.

Forwards: Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford, Daniel James

Although James, Greenwood and Rashford can create an all-English attacking trio this season, MU still hope to add Sancho to increase perfection. The Dortmund star promises to solve the problem of the right wing team that has existed for so long.
