Man Utd need a ‘B’ list following transfer blow for Premier League duo

There’s been a lot of Manchester United transfer talk going around. Tyrone Marshall has answered some fan questions on the matter with the Manchester Evening News.

Man United have been linked with different players for a few weeks. This comes after poor form and the January transfer window coming up.

However, there seems to be some issues with some of the players Solskjaer is rumoured to be interested in.

Tyrone Marshall has been answering fan questions with The Manchester Evening News.

One fan asked, ’how are out targets for the winter transfer window?’ Marshall replied and addressed quite a few rumours…

Targets

He explained how one of the biggest rumoured players, Mario Mandzukic, may not actually join Man United in January.

The reporter then went on to explain that Man United have been linked with some Leicester players. He said that it will be hard to bring them to Old Trafford.

Ben Chilwell and James Maddison are a big part of Leicesters team and therefore will be needed. It doesn’t look likely that they will move away from the King Power Stadium.

Plan B

Now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is going to have to make a new plan. Man United scouts are going to have to be sent out to monitor different players.

Solskjaer will have to move fast to find some fresh talent. However, he doesn’t have a lot of time.

Herrera’s Man Utd replacement is finally identified

According to the Express, Man United have finally found a replacement for Ander Herrera. This comes four months after he left the club.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly now looking at Denis Zakaria. He needs to find a replacement for Ander Herrera.

However, most have said that this replacement should have been found earlier. Fans will now have to think that it’s better late than never.

Herrera left Old Trafford on a free transfer in the summer. Zakaria is now being rated as one of the brightest talents in Germany.

This has generated interest from Premier League clubs like Tottenham and Man United.

Competition

It’s not just the Premier League team’s who are interested. Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid are also keen.

However, teams like Atletico Madrid are supposedly more interested in a summer move. This would give Man United an advantage to make a move now.

More for their money

If Man United do try to sign Zakaria, they would be getting more for their money.

Not only is he comfortable in the centre of midfield, he is also a good defensive midfielder. To add to his talents, he can also operate as a centre back. However, his current contract still has 3 years left. This may need some negotiating and there’ll have to be a lot of money involved.

Striker makes a big move to aid move to Man Utd

It looks like Mario Mandzukic wants to move to Man United just a much as they want him. According to The Sun, he’s prepared to reduce his wages in order to move to Old Trafford.

Mario Mandzukic is a name that Man United fans have been hearing a lot of recently. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that the 33 year old striker will transform things at Old Trafford.

However, disagreements over his wages made the deal difficult. Now reports are claiming that the striker is prepared to slash his £300,000 a week wages to make sure the move foes ahead.

So now, the 33 year old will take £150,000 a week in order to move to the Premier League.

Juventus

The striker has a lot of experience to his name. Before joining Juventus, he had spells at Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich.

It now looks like one of the last stops in his career could be at the Premier League. With the wage negotiations, it looks like Juventus could be ready to lose their man.

Man United

It’s no secret that Man United are struggling at the minute. So Mandzukic could come in at the right time.

He could motivate the attack and some of the younger more inexperienced players.

2 in-form players for Man Utd that need to play Liverpool this weekend

Man United have got a tough clash this weekend as they host Liverpool. The Premier League current toppers will be looking for another 3 points. Here are two Man United players who can help stop that from happening.

It goes without saying that Liverpool is the favourites this weekend. It will be an even harder job for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men to get some points.

However, that won’t stop them trying and being at home could help matters.

Solskjaer also has some players fit again after time out. This gives him more of an option when it comes to picking his team. It will also help him to change things around.

Daniel James

The 21-year-old has been playing for Wales on the international break. He has impressed critics and fans in the open wing stages of the season.

The ex Swansea player has been consistent for Man United so far. He has shown he deserves to be in one of the Premier League giants squads.

This is why he should be given a chance against Liverpool this weekend.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

There are rumours that the defender will be available this weekend. If he is, Solskjaer should definitely take advantage of that.

This would give players like Ashley Young a chance to rest as his performance hasn’t been great recently.

Maybe these players coming back from injury will be the answer Man United need. At least that’s what fans are hoping.

3 players Solskjaer needs to bring to Man Utd in January with money to spend

According to ESPN, Manchester United are ready to spend in January. The Football Manc Cave look at 3 players who could be on the list.

If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can keep his job until January, he could get a January spending spree.

Fans will be hoping that he can bring in a few players to refresh the poor squad. The form at Old Trafford isn’t great. Fans with high expectations have had enough.

Bosses at Man United have accepted that replacements for the summer departures were not found in time. January could be that second chance. However, overspending is something they are not willing to do.

Here are three players that Man United should make a priority…

Declan Rice

The 20-year-old has made a huge impact at West Ham. Man United have already been linked with Rice in terms of being interested in him.

However, it looks like a move to Old Trafford would take a lot of convincing. Declan seems content with the Hammers.

If some sort of deal could be made, he would be a great addition. He’s young, determined, skilful and could inspire the rest of the Man United team.

Mario Mandzukic

The Juventus striker is looking for a club to join. This comes after he was told he wouldn’t be a part of plans at Juventus this season.

He’s 33 so while he’s experienced, his career is also coming to an end. However, he could be a part of a short term plan at Old Trafford.

On top of that, he could also inspire, educate and be a leader to the youngsters at Man United. He may also be a cheaper option.

Eric Dier

Some will disagree with this pick. However, Tottenham is supposedly having a ‘January clear out.’

Eric Dier may be on that list. This would be an opportunity for Man United. They could get themselves a defensive midfielder and centre back for the price of one.

My guess is that he will want to prove Spurs wrong and be successful elsewhere. So why not pick Man United and help them get back on top?

Man Utd fans unhappy despite a win ‘Don’t lie if we put in this performance under Jose you’d want his head’

Man United overcome a tough Leicester City side to claim their second win of the season.

Man United earnt 3 points today against Leicester and it was much needed. Marcus Rashford put the Reds 1-0 up and they managed to keep it that way until the end.

While some fans are still not happy, understandably, most are just happy to see a clean sheet and some points. Others thought it was a boring game that needed more action and quite frankly, it’s what fans expect from the Red Devil’s.

Here are some of the best reactions…

‘Can only imagine how Phil Jones feels about Chris Smalling leaving Man Utd’ Twitter hilariously reacts to defender leaving

Chris Smalling is set to join Roma on loan from Manchester United and The Football Manc Cave are looking at your reactions.

Smalling is yet to make an appearance this season and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is content to lose him, after the signing of Harry Maguire this summer that has left the club with too many defenders.

21-year-old Alex Tuanzebe has taken the main spot at Old Trafford and Smalling has fallen down the pecking order. It’s no surprise that he wants to leave the Manchester side but United fans have kind of been waiting for this day to come…

Man Utd have 2 reasons why they should go for Chelsea midfielder

There are rumours of a transfer race for Chelsea midfielder, Tiémoué Bakayoko and Manchester United are one team named as being interested.

Today at the Football Manc Cave, we are looking at reasons why Man United should advance on signing him.

The 24-year-old has found himself in an unlikely transfer race with Arsenal, Man United and PSG all monitoring him in the hope to get his signature. He’s had a shaky start in his career, especially at Chelsea as he found himself in a couple of red card situations. As you can imagine, that didn’t leave the best impression on the fans and other teams.

The Frenchman spent last season on loan at AC Milan after his disappointing spell at Stamford Bridge. It was there where Bakayoko improved which explains the sudden development of interest. The ex-Monaco player is now in pre-season training and being watched by new Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard.

So if he does decide that a change would do him good, why should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer go all out for him?

He Will Give It His All

This might be an obvious statement to make. All footballers who want to make it should be putting 100% effort in. However, not only will he be determined to get appearances, but he will also want to prove his improving form.

When he played for Monaco in the 2016/17 season, in an interview, he revealed how he had been suffering from a knee injury. He had been having problems since 2015, although he only addressed the issue in 2017. He said, “people don’t know but throughout the whole of last season, I suffered because of my knee. I had to grit my teeth in every match.” Now that he appears to be over this, I’m sure he’ll give it his all even more.

Champions League

Man United missed out on qualifying for Champions League football at the end of last season. Fans will be hoping for a better campaign this football season that sees the Red Devil’s end up back where they belong. If they do, Bakayoko is no stranger to the competition. He was with Monaco since 2014 and in the 2016/17 season, he contributed to their Ligue 1 title win.

As an individual, he was then named in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League squad of the season before he joined Chelsea for £40 million. Let’s just hope he wants to be a part of a Man United side that wants to fight to be a part of Champions League football, rather than being put off by the fact they won’t be playing it next season.

2 reasons why Man United Women should be excited for Dutch ace to start

On May 22nd, Jackie Groenen became Man United’s first overseas signing and she has us at the Football Manc Cave excited. So what can they expect from her?

If you’ve been keeping up with the Women’s World Cup, Groenen is a name that you may recognise as she’s just managed to reach the final. After the competition is over, she will have another task on her hands, that task being Manchester United.

Casey Stoney made her the first signing that Man United women have made from another country, as the team that was founded in 2018 consisted of all British players. Fans are already anticipating her Man United debut and here’s a couple of things to expect.

Experience

The Red Devil’s women’s side managed to gain promotion to the Women’s Super League at the end of last season and it will prove to be tough. One positive is that Groenen is no stranger to the Women’s Super League.

In 2014 she signed for Chelsea, in a year she scored 2 goals in 20 appearances. Now that she’s had a couple of years with other clubs, international games and the chance to grow as a player. She should be ready for a successful return to the WSL, which could be the difference for Man United’s campaign.

Goals

She may be a midfielder but you can expect her to find the back of the net occasionally and when she does, they’ll be screamers. After her spell at Chelsea, she signed for FFC Frankfurt. The 24-year-old scored 13 goals in 79 games for her club, she’s also netted 3 goals for the Netherlands in 53 caps.

I’m not saying she will be able to make a difference to the score in every match Man United play. After all, she will have to find her feet again as she returns to this tier of football. Although I can guarantee that when she does land a goal, it will be at a crucial time.

Groenen scored the only goal of the game in the Netherland’s World Cup Semi-Final against Sweden. It was a brilliant goal and I am praying she can produce a couple of the same against the USA in today’s final. On behalf of England, come on The Netherlands and come on Jackie!

Former Man City Striker Linked With A Move Back To England With Leeds United

Felipe Caicedo is supposedly being eyed up by Leeds United.

There’s been quite a bit of transfer gossip and news coming from Leeds the past week. It was revealed that Jack Clarke has been sold from the Whites to Tottenham for around £11 million. That sale now gives Marcelo Bielsa some spending money for the remainder of the summer transfer window.

It is now being said that Leeds are interested in Caicedo after his good spells in La Liga. The 30-year-old striker was at Man City from 2008 to 2011 and he only made 26 appearances in that time. He managed to score four goals for the Manchester side despite being on loan to different clubs for the majority of the time that he was signed to them.

His most recent career has been a little kinder to him as he has been with Espanyol from 2014 to 2017, where he got a better total of 93 games and a double-figure goal total of 19. Since 2017 he’s been at Lazio where he’s bagged 50 appearances so far and 11 goals. He has set a record for himself as he stands as Ecuador’s national team’s fifth highest scorer with 23 goals.

If the move goes ahead for Leeds, it’s fair to say that the striker should be able to find the back of the net often in the Championship as it’s an easier league for the 30-year-old to compete in. However, this exact same rumour also happened last year putting Caicedo at the centre of a transfer to Leeds but it never happened then so we will have to play this by ear.

In better news for Leeds fans, even though Jack Clarke has been sold to Tottenham, it’s now being said that he will be sent back to Leeds on loan next season. So you’ve sold a player, got the money from him to buy a replacement and then you’re getting him back for a season anyway. Pretty good going I say.
