Paper Talk: Man United ?in limbo?; Alli in Ł50m Spurs exit

Man United are worried about one particular outcast while Tottenham are bracing themselves for a ÂŁ50million bid for midfielder Dele Alli., according to Friday’s papers.

FEAR OVER JANUARY SALES

Manchester United are worried that they will not be able to offload full-back Matteo Darmian in the January transfer window, according to The Sun.

The ÂŁ13.7million arrival from Torino has failed to impress Jose Mourinho so far this season and has been restricted to just eight appearances for the Red Devils.

Mourinho was hoping that the Italian would be one of the bigger names to leave Old Trafford, but there has been no firm interest shown in him despite being linked with a move to either Juventus or Inter Milan.

United would be willing to loan Darmian out in January with a move to selling him permanently in the summer, yet this try-before-you-buy approach has still not led to any club making an enquiry.

DELE IN DEMAND

Dele Alli: Linked with big-money exit

Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have both been linked with a ÂŁ50million move for Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli.

According to the Daily Mirror, the French giants are said to be feeling confident about landing the England international who they feel can help them in their pursuit of the Champions League trophy.

Real Madrid are also lurking in the background, but PSG are seemingly more ready to test Tottenham’s resolve.

The Ligue One champions kept a firm eye on the 20-year-old last season and have continued to monitor his progress throughout this season.

Alli is one of a whole host of Tottenham first-team players to recently commit his future to the North London club, but his reported ÂŁ60,000-a-week wages give PSG an opportunity to offer a significantly higher amount to tempt him to move to Paris.

Tottenham would be able to make a huge profit on the man that cost them ÂŁ5million from MK Dons, but Mauricio Pochettino will be determined to keep one of Spurs’ brightest talents.

Newcastle?s Shelvey and Dummett successfully appeal red cards

Newcastle duo Jonjo Shelvey and Paul Dummett have had their suspensions withdrawn after being sent off in Friday’s defeat to Nottingham Forest.

The decision comes as the pair’s wrongful dismissal claims in the Championship leaders’ 2-1 loss at the City Ground were successful following a Football Association Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.

Shelvey was sent off in the 33rd minute for violent conduct for apparently kicking out at Henri Lansbury’s face when both men were prone on the turf in the penalty area after challenging for the ball.

Lansbury was also inadvertently involved in Dummett’s dismissal on the stroke of half-time when the midfielder was through on goal, only to be brought down by the defender.

An FA statement read: “Both Jonjo Shelvey and Paul Dummett have had their suspensions withdrawn with immediate effect after their wrongful dismissal claims were successful following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.

“The Newcastle United pair were dismissed for violent conduct and denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity respectively during the game against Nottingham Forest on 2 December 2016.”

Montanier praises Forest patience after win over nine-man Newcastle

Philippe Montanier praised his Nottingham Forest side for their patience after seeing them finally break the stubborn resolve of nine-man Newcastle to claim a ground out 2-1 win at the City Ground.

It needed an 86th-minute own goal from former Forest man Jamaal Lascelles to secure the Reds’ third-straight Championship win, and leave Rafael Benitez’s men hugely frustrated.

Matt Ritchie gave Newcastle the lead in between two missed penalties for the home side – incidents which also saw Jonjo Shelvey and Paul Dummett red carded, both for fouls on Henri Lansbury.

But firstly Nicklas Bendtner and then Lansbury were denied by the heroics of another former Forest man, keeper Karl Darlow.

Bendtner pulled Forest level seven minutes into the second half but they had to wait until the final few minutes to secure all three points.

“We had to be patient in the second half to push higher, to get a lot of crosses in and create opportunities to score. We had to respect the plan but we did that and we got the goal at the end,” said Montanier.

“It was difficult for me to see whether they were clear penalties, but we cannot change the referee’s decision. We were on a downer after missing the two penalties, but I told the players to be clear in their minds – we had 45 minutes still to win the game and we knew we only needed a few seconds to score a goal.

“We had to forget the penalties and be patient – and we were. They had nine men and we had to move the ball. We had to deliver crosses and get bodies in the box.

“We needed to be accurate with the crosses. But the most important thing is that we got the two goals and the three points.”

Magpies boss Benitez was upset with referee Steve Martin, although there seemed to be little to question with either of the red card decisions, with Shelvey sent off for lashing out at Lansbury and Drummett for bringing down the midfielder when he was through on goal.

“It is very difficult to understand what happened. We had a penalty that was not given, I thought their first goal was offside,” said Benitez.

“We had two penalties given against us, two red cards and I hope he (Henri Lansbury) is proud of his reaction for the first one.

“I have not spoken to the referee. But I think we did really well, considering the first goal was offside. We did what we had to do. We tried to play on the counter attack, but that was always going to be difficult when we had nine men for 45 minutes.”

Jonjo Shelvey has chance to defend charges before Christmas

Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey will get the chance to argue his case over a charge that he racially abused an opponent before Christmas.

It is understood the personal hearing he requested after pleading not guilty to a Football Association charge of using “abusive and/or insulting words towards an opponent” will take place during the week beginning Monday, December 19.

Shelvey has been accused of an “aggravated breach” of Rule E3(1) as his alleged comments included a reference to “ethnic origin and/or race and/or nationality”.

The charge relates to an incident in the 87th minute of the Magpies’ 2-0 Sky Bet Championship defeat by Wolves at St James’ Park on September 17 and is understood to have involved Moroccan midfielder Romain Saiss.

An allegation was reported to referee Tim Robinson immediately after the game, but Shelvey was not charged until November 8 with Saiss’ limited understanding of English a complicating factor.

Witnesses have been interviewed yielding conflicting accounts, and the hearing is likely to be a lengthy process.

Shelvey, who strongly refutes the allegation, faces a minimum five-match ban if he is found guilty and that would come as a huge blow to his club as they continue their push for promotion back to the Premier League.
