Man Utd are looking to bring back Burnley 35m rated 19 y/o winger

According to The Sun, Man Utd are keeping tabs on £35 million Burnley winger, Dwight McNeil. This is the same player that they dumped 5 years ago.

The 19-year-old has been a stand out performer for Burnley so far this season. It looks like Man Utd are now regretting getting rid of the midfielder.

McNeil was released from the academy team at aged just 14. This was because he didn’t meet the standards. He was also poor at set-pieces.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sent scouts out in recent weeks to keep an eye on England Under 21 international.

Man Utd must meet Burnley valuation

It is understood that Burnley wants around £35 million for their man. Even if Man Utd reach those requirements, they could still be rejected.

It is looking like Burnley want to keep hold of the midfielder.

Dwight McNeil

The 19-year-old is a huge red devils fan despite being dumped from Old Trafford.

Scouts from Old Trafford apparently went to watch him when Burnley played Chelsea a few weeks ago. They got to see him score in a 4-2 loss.

How former Man United boss would turn Arsenal around

According to Evening Standard, Arsenal are standing by Unai Emery. This is despite the rumours of Jose Mourinho being approached.

There have been rumours this week about Jose Mourinho supposedly meeting Arsenal’s head of football, Raul Sanllehi.

Rumours that the former Man United manager could be on his way to the Emirates were fueled by talk of him having dinner with Sanllehi.

However, Arsenal have denied this and claimed that the two haven’t spoken in years. Arsenal have also said that they will stand by Unai Emery despite him only winning 2 leaugue games in 9.

Jose Mourinho

Even though Arsenal are denying these rumours, Mourinho would be a better option in my opinion.

The biggest thing that fans want is change. Jose would definitely be able to provide that change. Whether it be results, the team or style of play.

Man United

Football fans have always been divided by Mourinho. Some hate him, some love him. However, I have always been a fan of him.

Man United fans didn’t appreciate him. This is why it would be interesting to see him return to the Premier League and take on Man United with a new team.

How is Man United’s Joel Pereira doing at Hearts?

Joel Pereira went on loan to the Scottish Premiership. He is currently playing for Hearts and The Football Manc Cave are taking a look at how he’s doing.

The 23 year old goal keeper needed another loan spell to gain some experience. He decided that Hearts could be a good move for him.

The Portuguese player has featured in quite a few games already for the Scottish side. However, he has a lot to learn.

With David De Gea to live up to, he needs to get as much game time as possible. If he returns to Old Trafford, improvements will be expected.

Current form

According to Transfermarkt, Pereira has played 7 games and conceded 7 goals so far.

However, he has kept 2 clean sheets. At least he is making the most out of the games he’s getting. He will only learn, grow and develop.

Hearts

Currently, Hearts are 11th in the Scottish Premiership.

They recently played St Johnstone and only lost 1-0. Pereira played the full game. However, he also played against Rangers in the Scottish League Cup last weekend and they lost 3-0.

3 Reasons why a return for former fan favourite wouldn’t be a bad idea for Man United

Man United fan favourite, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been linked with a move back to Old Trafford in the past. However, could now be a good time to get him back?

Zlatan is a Man United legend. He has gone on to have a great career.

Man United’s recent form hasn’t been great. It has improved slightly but they could benefit from having someone like Ibrahimovic back at Old Trafford.

While it may seem unlikey, weirder things have happened in football. Here’s three reasons why it would be a great idea to sign him again…

Ole wants a goalscorer

Marcus Rashford scored an incredible goal last night. This probably will make up for the poor form he’s been under recently.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer really wants a goalscorer. So why not Zlatan?

Open to return

He gets asked about his time at Man United all the time. In the past, he has said that he would be open to a return to Old Trafford.

If a deal could be made, it would also please fans. They would also value him more because he actually wants to play for the club.

Experience

The current Man United team is made up of a lot of youngsters. They could benefit from the experience Zlatan has.

He’s had spells at Ajax, Juventus, Barcelona, PSG and LA Galaxy. However’ Solskjaer has said that he would be more interested if the striker was 28, not 38.

Man Utd looking at Brescia’s exciting 19y/o midfielder ‘Pirlo’

Man Utd is looking to steal a march on their competition by sending scouts to check out Brescia’s Italian 19-year-old Sandro Tonali – Dubbed the new ‘Pirlo’.

The highly-rated Tonali is only in his second season. Following his breakthrough campaign last term, as he helped Brescia promotion to Serie A.

With his style of play and style of haircut, many have labelled him the new Pirlo. This comparison holds some weight and puts a lot of pressure on the young man’s shoulders so early on in his career.

However, his fledging reputation has spiked a lot of interest from around the big European clubs. So much so, that Man United have sent their scouts out to monitor Tonali. As they bid to bring in the freshest and exciting talent to Old Trafford.

Having already made an appearance for the Italian international side, the hype continues to grow.

Brescia has already put a high 40m price on Tonali’s head, despite his 27m value (via Transfermarkt).

So far this season Tonali has one goal and 2 assists in his 10 appearances in all competitions. Tonali has six goals and 11 assists overall during his two seasons (63 apps) – which is not a bad return at all for 19-year-old.

With the big boys all sniffing around, Man United will have to act quickly if they are to make a move. Something United haven’t been the greatest at over the past few years.

A deep-lying playmaker with a Pirlo-esqe swagger is someone that would be welcomed at Old Trafford with open arms.

All but done: Man Utd January striker deal ‘agreed’

Man United looks to have agreed on a deal to bring Juventus 33-year-old Mario Mandzukic to Old Trafford in the winter window.

The red devils looked close to bringing the well-travelled striker to Manchester in the summer. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seemingly needs a striker to aid Martial and Rashford upfront, as Man United look to close the gap on the top four in the new year.

Mandzukic is out of favour in Serie A at the moment, and a bit-role in the Man United squad would be a very enticing move.

According to tuttomercatoweb.com, the deal to bring Mandzukic to Man United is not based on if Paul Pogba returns to the Old Lady. There are other avenues for that deal to go ahead. With the likes of Emre Can and Matuidi floating about alongside a monetary bid of around 100m Euros.

The signing of Mandzukic could be a masterstroke by Solskjaer. Looking back to Henrik Larsson, Teddy Sheringham and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, an experienced head can make all the difference to a team.

Many fans will agree that this season, Man United are lacking that experience on the pitch. Alongside a plan B. The Croatian would provide both on a short term level, and aid Solskjaer quest to bring back the glory years at Old Trafford.

Man Utd set to do battle with Liverpool & Arsenal over 22y/o midfielder

Man United are trying to cast their net far and wide in order to bring in the best talent possible to Old Trafford. Arsenal and Liverpool stand in their way of the highly-rated Denis Zakaria.

Borussia M.Gladbach defensive midfielder has caught the eye of many of the top clubs from around Europe and the Premier League. However Man United see to be keen on getting a deal wrapped up ahead of the competition as soon as possible.

At 22-years-old, Zakaria as 13 games under his belt this season in all competitions, scoring twice. The Swiss international has a pass success rate of 84.4% and an average game rating of 7.15. He’s not afraid to take a pop from range and is prone to dribble himself out of trouble.

Man United desperately needs to recruit in the midfield area. A defensive midfielder like Zakaria would be the perfect partner for Pogba, should he remain at Old Trafford, to express his skills further up the field.

According to the inside futbol, M.Gladbach are prepared to accept 50m for the player. Which is double what Transfermarkt value him at (25.20m). Either way, it’s a snip in today’s market should he live up to the hype. However, he could end up being a Fred.

With the likes of Bayern Munich, Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid all being linked to the midfielder. Man United needs to act swiftly if they are to stand a chance.
