Ten Hag was silent to Ronaldo; Rashford says Man Utd are ‘a lot fitter than last season’
Manchester United’s pursuit of Frenkie De Jong could end with reports of a back-up after links to Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic Savic. With the start of the Premier League season fast approaching, Erik ten Hag will be desperate to sign new players to quickly revitalize the Red Devils.
The same goes for Chelsea, who have struggled more to get a goal over the line after late intervention from Barcelona in the race to sign Sevilla star Jules Kounde. The Blues may have to look elsewhere for their second significant defensive upgrade after bringing in Kalidou Koulibaly to reload following the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen. The Sevilla star is set to cost more than £50m as Barcelona are ready to trump the Blues again after landing former Leeds star Raphinha.
Elsewhere, Cristiano Ronaldo’s future remains in doubt, the Portuguese is looking to leave Manchester United but his salary remains prohibitively expensive and Erik ten Hag claims the No.7 is not for sale with a year left on his contract at Old Trafford. Real Madrid are not interested according to the latest reports, while a shock move to Atletico Madrid has also been rumored.
