Manchester United may rue losing Renato Sanches to Bayern - Fonte

Making his first start for Portugal, Renato Sanches lived up to the hype, scoring the equaliser and converting in penalties. Portugal defender Jose Fonte says Manchester United will regret not signing 18-year-old sensation Renato Sanches. The former Benfica midfielder, who made a €35 million move to German champions Bayern Munich this summer, showed a glimpse of his talent on Thursday, scoring the equaliser in Portugal's defeat of Poland in the Euro 2016 quarterfinals. Manchester United were thought to have the inside track on Sanches before Bayern swooped in and signed him to a 5-year-deal that could see the transfer...

Ibrahimovic officially announces Manchester United move

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has officially confirmed his move to Manchester United, after much speculation surrounding the Swede’s future.

The confirmation came via his Twitter and Instagram pages, in which he posted a picture of the club’s crest, with the following comment:

“Time to let the world know. My next destination is @ManUtd”

Time to let the world know. My next destination is @ManUtd pic.twitter.com/DAK7iYlrCq

— Zlatan Ibrahimović (@Ibra_official) June 30, 2016

The 34-year-old announced his departure from Paris Saint-Germain at the conclusion of the 2015/16 season, having won Ligue 1 four times on the spin and ending with 38 league goals in his final campaign.

Ibrahimovic becomes Jose Mourinho’s second signing as United manager after Eric Bailly, and is expected to be taking home a weekly wage of around £250,000.

The 6ft 3in striker has been linked moves to the Premier League, China and the MLS and he has now confirmed his destination.

He even flirted continuously with a return to Italy, but in the end a re-unification with former boss Jose Mourinho proved to be too good a proposition to turn down.

Your Says of the Day: ?Wenger is tunnel-visioned?

Our readers debate who is better value Sadio Mane and Henrikh Mkhitarayan, Liverpool’s chances next season and Arsene Wenger becoming next England manager.

Mane vs. Mkhitarayan- who’s got the better deal?

MKhitaryaan365

On the face of it,United seem to have got better value for money but people also said the same thing last year when we signed Firmino and they bought Depay, and I think it’s safe to say that Robbie had a better season. Mane has had a couple of seasons playing in the PL and Mkhitaryan is new to English football. There’s no telling how well he will adapt to the PL. Both good players,but let’s reserve judgement until they’ve settled in,and we’ve seen them play over a consistent period of time. I like both players,and think they’ll improve their sides massively.

suarezsteeth

Mane can be quality, who knows if he can settle in quickly? He has PL experience which should help.

Mkhitaryan is coming off a very successful season in Germany. Everything is new to him though, so it might be the following season til he shows if he is good enough. Di Maria and Kagawa arrived with glowing reputations and were disasters. In fact, Kagawa and Mkhitaryan are arriving in very similar circumstances. The Man Utd fans on here said Kagawa was the third or fourth best player in the world when he arrived. Now it’s Mkhitaryans game has no weaknesses. In reality all transfers are a risk and only Messi has no weaknesses. Time will tell!

Johnny Utah

Mkhitaryan is some player. Like Mane, he can operate anywhere behind the striker.

Love watch Mkhitaryan play. Great eye for a pass and can finish.

Mane has pace and powerful. No idea how it is going to work out for either but if they play like they can then both will be a success. I’d much rather have Mkhitaryan to be hones.

Sean the sailor

Liverpool’s best left back?

fabio aurelio

Following on from the in & out / Moreno debate on another thread I feel the need to champion Fabio Aurelio as he was a class player – injuries apart. Another great spot by Rafa.
Won’t ever forget his free kick goal vs Utd in the 4-1 win at OT but more importantly the way Ronaldo didn’t get a kick against him at any time.
We should look to Brazil for another of his type!

redrob

Arbeloa for me, underrated but effective. And could play on either flanks

Songman

Wenger- horrible option for England?

Am I the only one who thinks that Wenger would be an atrocious choice as England manager? I’m quite confident that it won’t happen in any case however, even if it did, I can’t see it being any sort of improvement on Hodgson in terms of results (he’s a better manager but I don’t think he’d get the improved results at all). My thoughts are based on the following:

– Wenger’s main strength is being able to buy youngsters for cheap from other clubs and develop them into better players; at international level you can’t do this and only have to work with what you have. England simply do not have the talent to compete.
– Arsenal under Wenger have been well renowned for bottling when push comes to shove – and England already have a weak mentality in major tournaments (the fact that the team has NEVER won a competitive penalty shootout says it all). I can’t see Wenger breaking the mentality England currently have.
– Recently he has invested in English youth however in the past his teams have been known for severely lacking in English players – I can’t see him getting the best out of a group of purely English players.
– He has been at the same club for close to 20 years, changing from that comfort zone to, most probably, THE toughest job in world football would be too much for him to be able to get the results required.
– He has an obscene obsession with Wilshere and I can imagine he would force him, Walcott, Oxlade Chamberlain and Gibbs down every English fans throats should he take up the job in the very near future.

Those are my thoughts in any case. Cheers

Sympathy for the Devils

Beat me to it mate, I was just about to post about this. I would love to get rid of Wenger, but not at the expense of England.

What England need is a manager who will look at the best players he has available and work out a system that will play to their best strengths and that’s something that Wenger has failed to do, time and again, for Arsenal.

He is the most tunnel-visioned manager I think I’ve ever come across and, unfortunately, his early successes have given him an unfounded confidence in his own tactical nous.

Is change needed at Liverpool?

Do people really think we can challenge for trophies and top 4 this season? Every summer we hear the same thing. People and pundits predicting top 4 challenges and for us to win a trophy.

We have had one too 4 finish in 7 seasons. We have bottled the league, 2 semi finals and lost 2 cup finals in 2 years. I can see no change this season. Isn’t it time we faced up to the fact that we are really only a 6-8th table team. The golden years are well gone. One trophy in 9 years. Disappointment after disappointment, season after season.

Some point to klopp as the saviour but it’s clear to see even with him, we can’t attract the top players. I predict a 6th to 8th table finish and out with a wimper in both cups. People will say wait to see who else we bring in but they say that every summer. People say we have klopp but look at who city, Utd and Chelsea have. All managers who have won more then klopp. People expecting miracles will be disappointed. We are not a top 5 club. That’s not been negative. That’s the harsh reality of were we are. I live in hope but I can’t see any change soon.

Sean the sailor

I think we could possibly win either of the domestic cups next year,but as for league finish,I don’t see us challenging for top 4 unless teams like Chelsea,Arsenal or Tottenham have a poor season. The one thing we do have in our favour is obviously having no European distractions,so logically,we only have 1 game a week to prepare for until the domestic cups kick in,so we can put all our energies into our league form.

The fixture list has been horrendous to us early doors. Arsenal,Tottenham,Leicester,and Chelsea all before the end of September,with only one of those games being at home. That is very tough. That’s not to say we can’t win those games,but they may be a drain on the players physically going into October,November etc,so Jurgen may have to rotate,which is not ideal,as ideally you’d want a settled side. It’s also going to be an eye opener for the players that we’ve signed from abroad,as they may not be used to the tempo or physicality that the PL games offer,a real baptism of fire for them.

Obviously,I’d love a title challenge,but this group of players have let us down so many times,so it’s hard to be optimistic Sean. Let’s not run before we can walk. I think we will probably finish around 6th/5th. I hope I’m wrong obviously,but I think that’s a fair reflection on where we are right now as a team and squad.

suarezsteeth

I don’t expect to challenge for the title but I do expect a top 4 finish.
City, Chelsea and Utd will all have new managers, will they all settle into the league easily? I’m not so sure.
Spurs won’t push as hard this year as last as I think they may be a bit deflated after missing out last season for the title but they will still push for top 4.
Will Leicester push as hard this year again and take people by surprise? I’m not so sure.
All will have European football to contend with.

From the turn of the year our goal scoring was very good. Origi will have a Prem season under his belt, Ings will be back and hopefully Sturridge will stay fit for most of the season. Firmino will be accustomed to the Prem and now we’ve added Mane.
Our weak link was our defence which has been improved by a young but relatively experienced keeper who is highly rated and one of the best centrebacks in Germany. Can will a year older and more experienced with Henderson hopefully overcome his injury problems. We can’t say much about Grujic and Zielinski (if he arrives) as they are relatively unknown.

All this under the command of an experienced, top notch manager who will have them flying after a full pre season and he himself will have a greater understanding of the league and his opponents.

I genuinely think top 4 is very do-able.
Don’t rule out a cup either.

United given ?green light? to sign Real Madrid star Varane

Real Madrid are reportedly willing to offload central defender Raphael Varane, and Manchester United are a potential suitor for the player.

According to The Sun, the European champions have decided that they will “listen to offers” for the Frenchman.

New Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is understood to be keen on bringing in Varane, and he has been given a boost as Zidane seemingly has his centre-back duo already establish in Pepe and Sergio Ramos.

However, the Portuguese boss will face competition, as Le Parisien state that Carlo Ancelotti is keen on bringing the 23-year-old to Bayern Munich.

The report claims that Ancelotti, having worked with Varane for two years at Real, believes he is the “best young centre-back in Europe”.

Clubs targeting Varane were given a boost earlier in the month when the defender reflected on his current situation in the Spanish capital.

“After five years at Real Madrid, I hope I am able to overcome any kind of obstacle” he told L’Equipe.

“I feel I’m at a turning point. I think all players need to feel as though they are developing – it’s important to feel you are making progress and that’s something I aim to do every day. I am aware of what qualities I have and what I am capable of.”

Former Arsenal and United man Van Persie transfer listed ? report

Fenerbahce have reportedly put former Premier League and Netherlands star Robin van Persie up for sale this summer.

Despite scoring 22 goals in his first season for the Turkish side, Van Persie is reportedly heading for the exit door, states the Manchester Evening News.

Van Persie fell out with manager Vitor Pereira after being repeatedly being taken off in key games throughout the season.

Fenerbahce club president, Azil Yildirim, has now revealed that he will listen to offers for the Dutchman should he decide to quit.

“Van Persie? We’re waiting for buyers, if he wants to be sold,” he revealed.

‘RVP’ scored 58 goals in 105 appearances over three seasons at United, and helped the Red Devils to their 2012-13 Premier League title, before Louis van Gaal allowed him to leave last summer.

Van Persie hit out at his countryman Van Gaal last July after leaving Old Trafford on far from amicable terms.

“I asked to play in the reserves – to get my minutes – but after that I was on the bench again,” Van Persie told the Sunday Times.

“The atmosphere changed between me and Louis and people at the club saw it – but I was always professional.

“I was still thinking we could come back from holiday and start from scratch, but when I came back it wasn’t an honest battle any more. Fighting to get back in the team wasn’t given to me as an option.

“I didn’t get angry or emotional. These things are part of football, part of life. You have to make the best out of any situation so I’m doing this by moving on.”
