Paper Talk: United to tie up Perisic deal; Chelsea want Griezmann

Jose Mourinho has been pictured in Croatia and two players have been linked with moves to Man Utd, while Chelsea are chasing Mourinho’s top summer target Antoine Griezmann, all in the papers.

MOURINHO ON BUSINESS IN ZAGREB

Jose Mourinho is in Croatia and believed to be trying to tie up a move for Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic.

The Sun report the Man Utd gaffer flew to Zagreb to meet up with “long-time pal and transfer mastermind Predrag Mijatovic”.

Croatian publication Index.hr claim the reason for Mourinho’s visit was to watch Perisic and midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, 24.

Croatia defeated Ukraine 1-0 last night and while Brozovic played, Perisic was not involved.

The Sun though believe Mourinho is trying to seal a deal for Perisic with the help of Mijatovic, who has helped Mourinho get big deals over the line in the past.

Mijatovic apparently played a key role in Real Madrid signing Luka Modric from Tottenham in 2012 and he helped Mourinho land Nemanja Matic in 2014 for Chelsea.

 

CHELSEA MOVE FOR GRIEZMANN

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Man Utd’s top summer target Antoine Griezmann.

The Sun claim they “exclusively revealed that Chelsea are in the race for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann”.

But as far as any more details are concerned that is your lot. The article then goes on to list a possible Chelsea XI for next season which includes Jan Oblak in goal, Leonardo Bonucci, Radja Nainggolan and Griezmann.

Atletico striker Griezmann was yesterday reported to be very close to signing for United with the Manchester Evening News claiming the deal was almost agreed.

The France forward does have a buyout clause which is believed to be £86million and boss Diego Simeone says if that figure is met then he will likely be waving goodbye to the 26-year-old.

Chris Coleman offers shocking, but predictable response to horror injury

Chris Coleman defended Neil Taylor after Republic of Ireland defender Seamus Coleman was left with a broken leg in their fierce World Cup qualifier in Dublin.

The Everton full-back was carried from the field on a stretcher after Taylor had been shown a straight red card for his 69th-minute tackle during Friday night’s goalless draw.

The Football Association of Ireland confirmed later that Coleman had broken his right leg and the Republic captain is expected to undergo surgery on Saturday.

Television underlined the severity of the injury by choosing not to show replays of the incident which ended Coleman’s season.

“Sadly for Seamus, obviously, it looks like it’s a bad one,” Wales manager Coleman said, adding Taylor had gone into the Republic dressing room at the end of the match to see the Ireland captain.

“Neil Taylor is not that type of player. He’s had a serious injury himself. He’s a great boy, he’s a cracking lad.

“I’ve not seen the challenge, but I’ve seen the outcome, if you like, and it’s a bad one for Seamus.

“Yes, it looks like he (Taylor) has got that one wrong on our part. I’ve only seen it in real time when it happened and I didn’t see a lot.

“I saw the reaction. I have seen a picture of the outcome, so my thoughts are with Seamus.

“Of course, Neil is devastated himself. But, no, I never said to Neil, ‘What were you thinking?'”

 

Check out our new Score Centre, which features previews, stats, odds, head to head records, team line-ups, commentaries and social media updates.

 

There were few scoring chances in what turned out to be a feisty affair.

Republic midfielder Glenn Whelan caught his Stoke team-mate Joe Allen with a swinging forearm right on half-time, and Gareth Bale scythed down John O’Shea in a fashion which had the home fans screaming for a red card.

Bale was booked, ruling him out of Wales’ trip to new Group D leaders Serbia in June, and once more escaped being sent off for a high foot in the final quarter.

“It was a typical British derby game, there was needle all the way through it,” Chris Coleman responded angrily to Irish reporters.

“In your view do you think one or two of yours were lucky to stay on the pitch, because there was a little bit of both.

“Your boys are not coming off there with halos on their heads. It was going on all through the game.

“I’m not complaining, it was a typical British game of football. You don’t want to see anybody getting sent off, but there were one or two complaints from our boys when your boys were a little bit late here and there, and some of our boys were as well.”

FULL VIDEO: This is why they won't show this as a replay!! Seamus Coleman terrible injury. Get well soon ???????? pic.twitter.com/Sy0WukNDae

Republic manager Martin O’Neill said he had been told Taylor’s tackle “wasn’t great”.

“I’d like to have been in a position to have seen the challenge,” O’Neill said.

“The players said it wasn’t great. The television people said it wasn’t great either.

“I’ve seen John’s injury and he has stud marks on his ankle. They tell me they’re both pretty bad challenges.”

Serbia took over top spot in the group after their 3-1 win at Georgia earlier in the day.

They are tied on 11 points with the Republic, with Wales and Austria – 2-0 winners over Moldova – four points behind.

“It’s five games gone, we’re exactly halfway. Two games at home, three away,” O’Neill said.

“We’ve 11 points on the board. I would have taken that (at the start of the group).

“Serbia won, Austria won – they’re not out of it. Wales didn’t gain any ground on us, but we still have to go there and they are capable of winning matches.”

Paper Talk: Gimenez battle on for Prem pair

Man Utd and Liverpool are battling it out for an Atletico Madrid centre-back, while the Reds are also chasing Burnley’s Michael Keane, all in Friday’s papers.

DUO BATTLE FOR GIMENEZ

Manchester United and Liverpool are believed to be battling it out to sign Atletico Madrid central defender Jose Gimenez.

The Daily Mirror report that the Premier League pair are going “head to head” for the 22-year-old.

There is little other detail in the report other than Mourinho has been tracking the central defender for some time and that now Jurgen Klopp is also chasing the Uruguay international.

Gimenez has made 19 appearances this season, but only nine of those have been in La Liga with Diego Godin and Stefan Savic keeping him out of the side.

Injury has also plagued Gimenez this term with abductor muscle problem ruling him out for over a month in September and then a similar problem earlier this year sidelining him for another two weeks.

The player is believed to have a £39million buyout clause, but it’s understood neither club would be willing to meet that condition.

 

LIVERPOOL WANT KEANE TOO

Liverpool will also “join Everton in pursuit” of Michael Keane, according to the Daily Mail.

It’s clear that Jurgen Klopp is looking for a new centre-back this summer and Burnley man Keane is on the Anfield club’s radar after his solid England debut against Germany.

The former Man Utd man was impressive on Wednesday night in an almost faultless display and that, apparently, has been enough to persuade Liverpool to move for Keane.

Burnley look set to lose the 24-year-old at the end of the season, when he will have just 12 months remaining on his contract.

The Clarets are hoping for a fee in excess of £20million but Manchester City and Chelsea have been monitoring the player and his old club Manchester United, who have a sell-on clause, could also launch a move to bring him back to Old Trafford.

Everton move sees another traditional stadium close

Everton’s proposed departure from Goodison Park will see one of the Premier League’s most traditional venues closed for business.

On Thursday, Everton took a significant step towards their goal of building a new stadium on the banks of the River Mersey after securing a deal to acquire land at Bramley Moore Dock.

West Ham’s move to the London Stadium ahead of this season continued a trend in recent years which has divided the Premier League neatly in half – 10 of the current 20 clubs have moved ground since the start of the Premier League era, nine in the last 20 years and Middlesbrough in 1995.

At the other end of the scale, Everton are one of eight to have been in their current homes for more than a century while Watford continue to redevelop the 95-year-old Vicarage Road and Crystal Palace, with 93 years in Selhurst Park, are also closing on three figures.

 

Premier League stadium facts

  • West Ham’s was the first stadium move for 10 years, since Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium opened in 2006.
  • Five teams – Swansea, Manchester City, Hull, Leicester and Southampton moved in the five years prior to that, and Stoke and Sunderland in 1997.
  • Three current Premier League teams – Chelsea, Liverpool and Burnley – are still in their original ground. Burnley’s Turf Moor is the oldest Premier League ground, having opened in 1883.
  • Goodison itself dates back to 1892, when they moved out of Anfield and were replaced by newly-formed Liverpool. Tottenham’s White Hart Lane is the other remaining 19th-century stadium.
  • West Brom (1900), Manchester United and Bournemouth (both 1910) and Chelsea (formed in 1905) are the other teams to have occupied their current homes for more than 100 years.
