Transfer deadline day: How Ronaldo was forced to stay at Man Utd, play Europa League

Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo will remain at the club until at least January after the summer transfer deadline passed without a move materialising.

ESPN reports that the 37-year-old was keen to leave Old Trafford this summer.

Ronaldo was desperate to play in the Champions League and he had been linked with Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and Napoli.

The five-time Ballon d’Or, who came on in the 68th minute of United’s 1-0 win over Leicester City on deadline day, has one year left on his contract with the option to extend for another year.

Following the win at the King Power Stadium, manager Erik ten Hag said: “As we said [he has stayed].

“It is really early in the season. We have a squad, more than 11 starting players and that is what you see now. Players on the bench can play in two to three weeks.”

Ronaldo will now play in the Europa League for the first time in his career.

The Red Devils are in Group E with Real Sociedad, Sheriff Tiraspol and Omonoia.

Transfer: Man Utd take decision on allowing Wan-Bissaka join EPL rivals

Manchester United have received offers from Crystal Palace and West Ham about signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to The Athletic.

It’s believed both bids were rejected as the Red Devils.

United don’t have any intention to sell or loan the 24-year-old right-back before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

If Wan-Bisssaka was to depart a replacement would be required to ensure manager Erik ten Hag has two options in that position.

There is little expectation of that happening at this late stage.

Wan-Bissaka moved to Old Trafford three years ago in a deal worth £50 million. Dailypost

Transfer: Man Utd consider selling C Ronaldo with only one Champions League club interested

Manchester United are considering selling Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.

And according to Spanish football expert, Guillem Balague, Atletico Madrid are the only club interested in signing the player.

Ronaldo is keen to feature in the Champions League this season, something the LaLiga club can offer him.

Balague claims Atletico’s boss, Diego Simeone, also wants Ronaldo to come and replicate Luis Suarez’s impact at the club.

Atletico are now looking at a possible deal that would please the 37-year-old’s agent, Jorge Mendes.

“Manchester United have considered the departure of #CR7 for a while, Ragnick thought getting rid of him was essential for the good of the team. But only one club really interested but can’t adjust the numbers

Simeone wants him at Atlético to do a Luis Suarez with him. And CR7 likes the idea and might explain his behaviour.

“Atlético looking at all kinds of possibilities to please Simeone…and Jorge Mendes who has an exceptional relationship with the decision-makers at the club,” Balague tweeted. Dailypost 


Transfer: What will come will come - Ajax's Antony opens up on Man United move

Ajax forward, Antony has suggested that a switch to Manchester United for him could still happen before the end of the transfer window.

Antony is one of the players Manchester United boss, Erik ten Hag wants to bring along with him to Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old Brazil international has been a top target for Red Devils this summer, although his asking price has been a problem for United.

Initially, it was thought Ajax wanted around £68m in order to let him go, but his asking price was raised to £84m.

“Will Ten Hag call me? No idea,” Antony told NOS.

“He has to discuss this with my agents, I’m focused on here. What will come will come, we will see.

“I feel good at Ajax. I give everything for this club, every minute, so I am loving this city and this club.”Dailypost

Transfer: Alexis Sanchez gets heroic welcome at new club

Alexis Sanchez has received a heroic welcome after arriving in Marseille.

The Chile international is closing in on a move to the Ligue 1 side after leaving Inter Milan following the mutual 

termination of his contract at the San Siro.

While a move was near, Sanchez almost suffered a mishap after slipping as he greeted supporters, nearly leading him to a 

rather embarrassing moment.

Meanwhile, Simon Jordan has picked Tammy Abraham as a suitable striker for Manchester United at this point in time.

According to him, the Red Devils should be trying to sign the ex-Chelsea striker this summer.

The England international has thrived at Roma since leaving Stamford Bridge last summer.

“Why’s he not in the conversation?!”

“He scored 17 goals last season. They clearly have a need for a centre-forward,” he told talkSPORT.

Transfer: Ten Hag speaks on Man Utd signing Arnautovic after latest defeat

Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has reacted to reports linking his team to sign Bologna striker, Marko Arnautovic.

Man United have been linked with Arnautovic this summer.

Speaking on the development after Man United’s Premier League 2-1 defeat to Brighton on Sunday, Ten Hag refused to confirm a move for the 33-year-old Austrian attacker.

Asked about Arnautovic and the need to reinforce his attack line this summer, Ten Hag told reporters at his post-match press conference: “I don’t go into names because I think in this pre-season maybe 250 players are linked with Man United, so that’s it.

“We have two strikers, maybe a third one with Rashford as well – who we considered as a striker, but he had a really good pre-season on the left side and also today he had two really good chances coming in from the left-hand side.

“So I think it was the right decision to do it like this. But we didn’t have the typical nine, it was not available today.” Dailypost

Transfer: Haaland agrees deal with new club, to become highest paid player in Premier League

Borussia Dortmund striker, Ealing Haaland’s representatives and Manchester City have agreed terms on a deal, according to Daily Mail.

The deal will make the player the highest paid player in the Premier League, with a contract worth over £500,000-a-week offered to the Norwegian.

The striker and his representatives are said to have now understandably given the deal the green light

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, who are yet to replace their legendary striker, Sergio Aguero, who left the club in the summer of 2020, will trigger Haaland’s £63m release clause in his contract at Borussia Dortmund.

The Premier League giants will offer the Norwegian a five-year contract with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain also said to be interested in signing Haaland.

But with a contract agreement in place, Manchester City appear to be right at the front of the pack in the race for his signature.

Haaland’s father, Alg-Inge, played for Manchester City from 2000-03.

The 21-year-old has been close to unstoppable since joining Dortmund from RB Salzburg in January 2020, scoring 82 goals in 85 games across all competitions.

The striker has also scored 15 times in 17 caps for his country and has become one of the most wanted players on the planet. Dailypost

Transfer News: Ole Solskjaer confirms first signing in January window

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has confirmed the arrival of Amad Diallo from Atalanta.

Solskjaer has described Diallo as “one of the most exciting young prospects in the game”, after United finally completed the signing of the winger.

Both clubs agreed a £37 million deal on deadline day, but the 18-year-old remained with Serie A club until last week.

“Manchester United has such a proud history of developing young players and everything is in place to enable Amad to reach his potential here.

“It will take time for him to adapt but his speed, vision and fantastic dribbling ability will stand him in good stead to make the transition.

“He is a player with all of the raw attributes that are needed to be an important player for Manchester United in the years to come.”

Transfer: 3 players Arteta wants Arsenal to sign this summer revealed

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, wants the club to sign three players this summer transfer window in order to fit his plans to play a 4-3-3 system next season.

Arteta won his first trophy as a manager on Saturday after the Gunners defeated Chelsea 2-1 in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium.

According to The Times, Arteta’s FA Cup victory now puts him in a sturdier position with Arsenal’s chiefs in terms of being backed in the transfer market this summer.

The Spaniard is “keen” on signing Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho, Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey and Chelsea’s Willian.

Coutinho has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal in the past few weeks as Barcelona want to sell the Brazilian international.

Partey is also keen to join Arteta’s side this summer.

Willian is edging closer to the exit door at Chelsea, after rejecting the club’s latest offer to sign a new two-year contract. Dailypost

Transfer: Barcelona offer Chelsea’s Willian 3-year deal

Barcelona have made a formal contract offer for Chelsea winger, Willian, according to Sky Sports.

The La Liga giants are understood to have fulfilled Willian’ request for a three-year deal.

Willian’s contract with Chelsea is due to expire this summer.

The 31-year-old has been holding out for a 3-year deal from Chelsea, but Frank Lampard’s side are only willing to offer a contract for the next two years.

But Barcelona have now pleased Willian’s request.

DAILY POST recalls that the Brazilian international was reportedly offered a deal worth £250,000 a week earlier this year by Arsenal, but the North London club were forced to reconsider due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Willian has also drawn interest from Manchester United, Tottenham and Inter Miami.

He is now expected to decide on his future after this Saturday’s FA Cup against Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Willian’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, had a few days ago provided the latest update on his client’s future at Chelsea. Dailypost

Transfer: Man Utd increase offer for Fernandes following Barcelona’s interest

Manchester United have increased their offer for Bruno Fernandes twice in the past 24 hours, Sky Sports reports.

It is believed the second bid is worth 55m euros (£46.59m).

One of the proposed add-ons will see Sporting Lisbon receiving a further 10m euros, if Fernandes plays a certain number of games for United.

This comes amid reports that Barcelona are in talks with Sporting and have proposed signing him this summer until 2025.

However, the LaLiga champions want to loan him to Valencia until the end of the 2020-21 season.

Barca’s bid also appears to match Sporting’s valuation, so the decision on which club to join will rest with the player.  Dailypost
