Arsenal in talks to sign up Italian, Glazers plot £90m move to appease Man United fans, Tuchel tells Chelsea board he wants £60m Brazilian signed in news of the day
Arsenal open talks to hire Maurizio Sarri, Man United plot big Kane move and Tuchel requests the Chelsea signing of Marquinhos in news of the day…
Thomas Tuchel has asked Chelsea’s hierarchy to sign Marquinhos from Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic made the big decision to get rid of the Chelsea legend after a disappointment few weeks of results, and opted to make a move to bring Tuchel to the club after he got the sack from PSG.
The German coach has made an amazing start to life at the Bridge by guiding the Blues to an FA Cup final and a Champions League semi-final, where they are favourites to get past Real Madrid to play Manchester City in that final.
But with the transfer window just a few months away, the German also knows that he needs to start planning for next season and adding a world class centre-back to the squad is high up on his list of things to do in the transfer window.
And according to the Sunday World, Tuchel has put forward his own list of recommendations to Chelsea’s board and one of the names proposed is Marquinhos.
The Brazilian has established himself as one of the very best centre-halves in world football right now and is attracting all sorts of interest after helping PSG reach that semi-final of the Champions League.
Chelsea, however, will face a tough task of reuniting Tuchel with Marquinhos as the 26-year-old will still have three years remaining on his contract with PSG this summer.
We have been massive fans of Marquinhos for some time now, so if Chelsea are able to get a deal done, he will be an outstanding signing for the club, Evan at that £60-70 million asking price that he is reportedly going for.
Manchester United are plotting a £90 million ($125m) bid for Tottenham striker Harry Kane, according to The latest reports in the media.
Kane is easily regarded as one of the finest strikers in world football right now and is well on course to have one of his best ever seasons as a forward, already netting 31-goals this season and adding 16-assists.
That has led to rumours that he could leave the club at the end of the season as he wants to add trophies to the cabinet, which has meant that the likes of United, Chelsea and Manchester City have all been linked.
The prolific frontman has missed out on major silverware once again this season and is ready to explore his options, which will put many clubs on alert in the transfer window.
Now reports on the SUN website have claimed that United are now plotting a massive £90 million move to try and secure a transfer deal for the hitman, with the club’s ownership wanting to appease fans after the Super League fiasco.
The news comes just a few days after the striker admitted that he still has a burning desire to win the “biggest prizes” in the game.
“Individual awards are great, they are fantastic achievements,” said Kane. “When I look back at the end of my career, I will go over it and take in a little bit more.
“The goal right now as a player is to win team trophies. As much as this [award] is great, I want to be winning the biggest prizes that there is to offer as a team and we are not quite doing that.
“It is one of those [situations], it is bittersweet. I would rather be winning team trophies and this award. It is what it is.”
Kane added on Tottenham’s current standing in England after their humbling against Man City: “We still have a way to go before we can reach that level of City and those teams at the top of the league. We’ve got to keep working hard, learn from it and try and finish the season strongly.”
Shock reports have claimed Arsenal have begun talks with former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri about replacing Mikel Arteta at the Emirates.
Mikel Arteta came to the Emirates with a big reputation in the game after working closely with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, and big things were expected after he led the club to that shock FA Cup win last season.
However, Arteta’s fate may now be riding on the Europa League, where they can still secure Champions League qualification by winning the competition should they get past Villarreal and beat Manchester United or Roma in the final.
And According to an exclusive report from Football Italia, Arsenal have now initiated talks with Sarri about becoming their manager next season.
Sarri has been waiting patiently for a chance to return to the dug-out but is yet to commit to a new project, but after Roma moved quickly to wrap up the surprise appointment of Jose Mourinho from the start of next season, he is no seeking a move back to the Premier League.
It is also claimed that Arteta is expected to be moved on at the end of the campaign, despite the club’s commitment to a long-term vision.
The Spaniard is adamant he has received assurances that he will get time but Arsenal’s lack of progress in the Premier League has raised alarm bells.
This is a stunning story that will shock many Arsenal fans that are massive fans of Arteta. But if you look at the overall picture at the club, Arteta has not done the job that many had hoped.
The club are well down the Premier League, went out early in the domestic cups and he is only still in a job because of that Europa League run, so he could go.
But is Sarri the right man?
