£200m man issues transfer emssage for Man United, Pogba told why he will never be great, Big Fernandes claim made and Solskjaer makes contract admission
Pogba will never be Man United great, Fernandes claim made, Mbappe issues transfer message and Solskjaer makes contract admission in Manchester United roundup….
Paul Pogba does not have the mentality to be a great Manchester United player, Teddy Sheringham has claimed.
Pogba has been at Old Trafford for a good few seasons now but Manchester United fans have never quite seen the quality that he possesses on a weekly basis, with his displays constantly in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Although he has made more than 190 appearances for United, the 27-year-old has been dropped from the starting XI at times and has been consistently linked with a move away, with Real Madrid and Juventus the two clubs that are most keen to get a deal done
“It’s just an up and down situation which you don’t normally get from top players, and he’s obviously a top player,” Sheringham told Goal.
“He’s a quality, talented player, but there is just too many highs and lows for me, and when you are playing for Manchester United, you can’t afford that. If he’s a top player, you don’t get left out of the team.
“You might be for a couple of games, just to kick you up the bum and make sure you’re back on track, but for him to be in and out the team, [it raises] question marks all the time, it can’t be right.
“Now, you have to head to Manchester United and say: ‘I want to be a Manchester United great for as long as I’m here and I’m going to prove that to all those doubters’. It doesn’t seem that he’s got that in his mentality, he’s just saying: ‘I don’t care what you think!'”
Teddy Sheringham has opened up and claimed that Bruno Fernandes is one of the best players that Manchester United have signed.
Ever since signing for Manchester United just over 12 months ago, Fernandes has gone on to become the most important and influential player that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has at his disposal right now
He already has eighteen goals in all competitions this season and is the main reason why United are still in the hunt for that Premier League title, ALTHOUGH SOME LATES BAD RESULTS have left them well behind in the title race.
And now, Sheringham has opened up and suggested that Bruno Fernandes is one of the best players that the club have ever managed to acquire: “Thankfully for Manchester United, he made a sudden, amazing impact, didn’t he?” Sheringham said on GOAL. “It doesn’t always happen for players, let alone foreign players who are coming into the Premier League.
“So, for him to hit the ground running, and with a proper speed as well, he’s been a revolution at Manchester United with his assists and his goals record. You’ve got to say that he is out there with the best [players] Manchester United have ever signed.”
We totally agree with Sheringham as Fernandes has been brilliant since his move to the club just over 12 months ago, and they were very lucky to get a deal done
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits that he is yet to enter into talks regarding a contract extension at Manchester United.
Solskjaer has done a pretty decent job as boss at United and have got the Red Devils back playing regular Champions League football, while also managing to once again compete for that Premier League title.
The Norwegian was tied to a three-year agreement after initially impressing in an interim role on the back of Jose Mourinho’s departure in December 2018, but despite the fact Unite are doing so well in the Premier League, there has been some doubts as to whether or not he is the ideal man to lead the club back to success.
And now, amid that speculation, Solskjaer has come out and stated that he has not opened talks with the club about a new contract he has told VG when asked about his future: “I have not thought about that, and we have not discussed it at all.
“I am just focusing on doing my job and part of the job is to stabilise things.
“We have a job to do in order to find consistency on the pitch. Outside the pitch it is still a crisis if you lose a game.
“If you concede a goal in stoppage time against Everton, it still creates big headlines. That can happen in football.
“But on the inside it is more stable. We feel like we are on our way towards what we sat down and discussed, what we planned.
“I know that there has been a lot of criticism and discussions about one thing or another, but if you first set a course, then I at least have so much faith in myself that I do not waver too much.”
Manchester United target Kylian Mbappe will ‘take the crown’ from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and develop into the best player in the world, Rio Ferdinand has claimed.
Mbappe is hell of a player already and is already considered to be one of the most dangerous and creative players in world football, with his price tag at PSG considered to be well over the £200 million mark.
He was once again in fine form in the Champions League against Barcelona, Despite the absence of Neymar and Angel Di Maria, the 22-year-old scored once in the first half and twice in the second half as the Ligue 1 giants ran riot at Camp Nou to win 4-1
And United legend Ferdinand heaped praise on Mbappe after the impressive display and told BT Sport that the Frenchman was on course to take over from all-time greats Messi and Ronaldo.
He said: ‘This guy will take over the throne from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo one day. ‘This is a statement from Mbappe. Mbappe is on his own, out of the young players, he’s on his own.
“He’s won the World Cup and been immense in the Champions League
‘He will take the crown from Messi and Ronaldo and be there, he’s standing alone at the moment and it’s up for other players to catch up with him now.’
Mbappe will go on to become the very best player in world football, and United would love to see him do that at Old Trafford.
But would the club have the ambition to pay £200 million for the man?
