CAN JADON SANCHO AND MARCUS RASHFORD MAKE IT TO THE ENGLAND WORLD CUP SQUAD?

Two mercurial talents that have had a combined total of one appearance since Euro 2020 are slowly, but surely, getting their way back into international form. Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford, both of Manchester United, have had a difficult 12 months for their club, which saw a complete meltdown during last year’s campaign and, in turn, caused the level of their performances to disintegrate.

Sancho, who arrived from Borussia Dortmund for £75 million in the summer of 2021, came into a club who looked ready to take the next step up. They might have squandered their chances of Europa League glory, but a respectable second-placed finish in the Premier League looked favourable for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

MEMPHIS DEPAY OPEN TO RETURNING TO MANCHESTER UNITED THIS SUMMER

According to a report by Spanish publication SPORT, Barcelona’s hopes of offloading Memphis Depay in the ongoing transfer window have risen. The Dutch attacker is open to returning to Manchester United this summer, with the Red Devils already in contact with him over a late move.

Memphis Depay might have been on cloud nine this time last year after joining Barcelona in a Bosman move. The 28-year-old had worked hard to rise in stature in Europe, and he earned a deserved move to Camp Nou after running down his contract with Lyon. But while he finished the 2021/22 season as Barcelona’s top scorer, his stock has fallen at the Catalan club.

UNITED CONTINUE PREFECT RECORD UNDER ETH

 

 

Three-time European champions Manchester United have continued their perfect record under new manager Erik Ten Hag (ETH) in pre-season after the win over fellow Premier League team Crystal Palace in their latest game.


Manchester United have been in top form since the arrival of their Dutch manager Ten Hag. They have won all their three pre-season friendly games under his watch. In his first match as the Manchester United manager, he masterminded the 4-0 win over arch rivals Liverpool on their tour of Asia.The Red Devils raced into a 3-0 lead at the halftime interval thanks to the goals from Jadon Sancho, Fred and Anthony Martial. Uruguayan substitute FacundoPellestri wrapped up the big win in the second half. The game between the top two English teams took place in Bangkok, Thailand.

UNITED TARGET REJECTS CONTRACT EXTENSION

Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has turned down the offer of a new contract from his Italian Serie A team. The Manchester United target handed Lazio a big blow by rejecting a new contract extension as reported by Italian publication LazioNews24.


Manchester United target Milinkovic-Savic has been seriously linked with a move away from Lazio this summer. Apart from Manchester United, the Serbian international star has been reported as a target for fellow Premier League teams Arsenal and Newcastle United. Milinkovic-Savic doesn’t want to stay at Lazio after turning down the offer of a one-year contract extension on top of the two years left on his current deal with the capital club. The Serbian has a Lazio contract that does not expire until the end of the 2023/24 season.

WOLVES: EUROPEAN FOOTBALL IN SERIOUS DOUBT

European football is in serious doubt for Wolverhampton Wanderers next season after they were thumped 5-1 by defending champions Manchester City in the Premier League. The rescheduled league encounter played at the Molineux saw Kevin De Bruyne score four goals to lead his team to a big win at the expense of the home team.


Wolves began the season with three straight defeats in the league under new manager Bruno Lage who had replaced compatriot NunoEspirito Santo. Ex-FC Porto goalkeeper Espirito Santo took the Tottenham Hotspur job almost immediately after leaving the Wolves job and he spent some months in North London before being fired on the back of a series of poor results in the league. Spurs turned to a serial winner in Antonio Conte to replace the sacked Espirito Santo. For Portuguese tactician Lage, the former Benfica boss was able to turn things around to lead Wolves into contention for Champions League football.

             MANCHESTER UNITED TARGETING A CENTRAL DEFENDER THIS SUMMER

The Manchester Evening News understands United held exploratory discussions with the representatives of Antonio Rudiger, out of contract in Chelsea at the summer, but there is little expectation of the Germany international joining them.


Sources close to the player are more focused on discussing potential contracts with clubs guaranteed of playing in the Champions League next season. Although United are three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, their next three fixtures are away at Liverpool and Arsenal, as well as Chelsea at home.

UNITED: ARSENAL MOVE FOUR POINTS CLEAR

North London giants Arsenal have moved four points clear of Manchester United in the race to secure a top-four spot in the Premier League at the end of the season after they beat hosts Aston Villa at the weekend.


Arsenal began the weekend in fourth place and with a one-point lead over Manchester United. They had the chance to move four points clear of United with an away win over Aston Villa with the Red Devils not in league action. Manchester United were not in league action over the weekend due to the FA Cup commitments of opponents Liverpool. The Premier League clash between hosts Liverpool and Manchester United have now been rescheduled for next month.

UNITED TARGET TOP-FOUR BOOST AGAINST HAMMERS

The top-four is clearly the target for Manchester United in the Premier League season and they can receive a boost in this quest by beating West Ham United this weekend with the Hammers also having the same target of finishing as one of the first four teams in the English top flight this season. Manchester United began the season as a genuine title contender until things fell apart under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who paid the price with his job. The ex-Norwegian national team striker was immediately replaced with a caretaker manager in Michael Carrick who was one of his assistants before German tactician Ralf Rangnick was appointed as the interim manager until the end of the season.

Manchester United got back to winning ways in league terms with the 3-1 win at the home of London team Brentford in a rescheduled game. The Red Devils had a shaky first half and they could have been behind at the break. Second half was a different ball game for Manchester United as they imposed themselves more on the game and got their reward with three goals. Swedish attacker Anthony Elanga scored the first goal for Manchester United on the occasion of his second league start before England international Mason Greenwood added a second goal. Marcus Rashford then came off the bench to score the third and final United goal. Ivan Toney scored the last goal of the game in the colours of Brentford.

MAGUIRE RESPONDS WITH TWO GOALS

Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire has responded to his critics with two goals in two games for his national team. The central defender has come under serious criticisms in the last one week due to his poor performances for Manchester United in both the Premier League and the Champions League.

Maguire returned from a short-term injury layoff to take his place in the Manchester United squad for the away game against Leicester City in the Premier League shortly after last month’s international break and he was one of the major culprits as the Red Devils were beaten 4-2 by the FA Cup champions. In the following Premier League game,Maguireleft-back Luke Shaw were strongly criticised for their respective roles during the 5-0 defeat suffered at home at the hands of arch rivals Liverpool.

FRED, CAVANI FOR ATALANTA SQUAD

The South American duo of Fred and EdinsonCavani are expected to return to the Manchester United squad when they take on Italian team Atalanta in a crucial Champions League clash on Wednesday night. The two players missed the Premier League encounter with Leicester City on Saturday due to the commitment with their respective national teams.


Cavani and Fred were not in the Manchester United squad that lost 4-2 to home team Leicester City thus making it three games without a win on the Premier League table. The South American duo are expected to make the Red Devils squad for the home clash with Atalanta in the Champions League later this week.
