Emre Can opens door to United move, Rashford has Solskjaer message with Poch linked, Superstar striker ‘stalling on deal’ with Man United keen
Here is a roundup of the latest Manchester United news from icfootballnews.com
Fresh reports have claimed Manchester United target Pierre-Emerick is stalling on a new contract at Arsenal.
Signed by legendary boss Arsene Wenger just before he quit the club, Aubameyang has fast become a real folk hero at the Emirates and impressed in his first full season in the Premier League by netting an impressive 31-goals for the Gunners last season.
His impressive performances and goals could not help the club get back inside the top four or pick up some silverware, but with boss Unai Emery doing some great transfer business, the Gunners side looks more of a threat then they did 12 months ago.
Since joining from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018, Aubameyang has scored over 50 goals for the club, and the Gunners are desperate to end all speculation that the striker could be interested in a move to the likes of Unite, Real Madrid or even a lucrative switch to China.
But SPORT claim Aubameyang is hesitating on committing to Arsenal as he is waiting to see if there is potential interest from some of the big boys from Europe to take him away from the Emirates.
Unai Emery will be desperate for the striker to stay in north London as he pushes to finish in the top four, but reports have claimed Aubameyang is not happy with the fact that Arsenal are not playing Champions League football and competing for the Premier League title, something that he was reportedly promised when signed by the club.
Aubameyang is one of a handful of world class players at the Emirates and he has already shown this season that he is seeking to win that golden boot, get the club playing Champions League football and lead the Gunners to some silverware.
Marcus Rashford has backed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer amid speculation that a move for Mauricio Pochettino could be made.
After helping Tottenham become one of the best side sin Europe right now, Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy took the decision to get rid of the Argentine boss and replace him with former Manchester United and Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho.
It is believed that Mourinho was desperate to make the return back to the Premier League after a sluggish few seasons with United, and signed a deal that will keep him at the White Hart Lane club until the end of the 2022/23 season.
But his arrival at Spurs has meant that United have the possibility of signing one of their long-term targets for nothing, especially as Solskjaer has come under intense pressure over the past few months with some pretty poor results.
Rashford is enjoying life under the former United striker and says Solskjaer was a key factor behind the decision to extend his deal at Old Trafford.
“There was no hesitation from me over signing a new contract,” Rashford told Sky Sports News.
“And it was the same for Ole as well – I could see where his head was at, where he wanted the club to be at and for me it was just a no-brainer.
“We were on the same page and wanted the same things for the club. Ole is a great guy and he has the club’s interests at heart so there’s not a better person for the job in my opinion.”
Emre Can has told chasing Manchester United that he has become unhappy and frustrated at Juventus this season.
Despite becoming an integral part of the side under Jurgen Klopp, the German midfielder could not agree terms on a new contract, with some reports suggesting he wanted more that the club were willing to pay.
It prompted Klopp to head into the transfer market and acquire the services of both Naby Keita and Fabinho, as he looked to fill the void which has been left by Can, and while both players have become an integral part of the Liverpool squad, the story is completely different for Can.
The former Liverpool star has managed just four appearances this season for Juventus and suffered a sizable snub when he was omitted completely from their Champions League squad, and United are reportedly interested in bringing Can back to England and the 25-year-old has now opened up about his current frustrations.
‘I’m just an ambitious guy who always wants to compete at the highest level,’ he told Kicker.
‘But I’m also learning from this tough time when things are not going the way I was hoping.
‘I’m not playing games from the start, so I’m not happy, but I will stay strong and keep working on myself.
‘I’m often in the gym before or after training doing extra shifts. I want to be ready.’
