£300,000-a-week signing will Man United ‘a force’, Ighalo sends Coronavirus message, Solskjaer told to sign brilliant midfielder

Guys here is a roundup of the latest Manchester United news, gossip and transfer news from icfootballnews.com over the past 24 hours.

Gunners legend Paul Merson has claimed that Aston Villa star Jack Grealish would be a great signing for Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a boss that needs to spend some serious money over the next few weeks in order to improve a side that may in fact struggle to get a top six spot this season, nevermind a Champions League place for next season.

That has, of course, led to all sorts of speculation about whom could come into the club, who could leave the club, and what superstar signing that Solskjaer will seek to improve his side in the next few windows in order to close the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool.

And there has also been some shock rumours in the media that Villa midfielder Grealish could also be on the radar of Solskjaer after impressing during his first season back in the Premier League, as his performances over the past few months has also caught the attentions of the likes of Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool, who all believe that he is ready to make that step up in the game.

Paul Merson has TOLD SKY SPORTS that the Villa Midfielder, along with Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, are exactly what United has been looking for: “Aubameyang is what Manchester United are missing. He is a goal scorer and goal scorers are priceless.”

“If you look at United and the way they played against Manchester City a couple of weeks ago, I thought they were very, very good. You looked at them and thought they have got a chance, especially if they could also get hold of a couple more players, especially a creative midfielder.

“You couldn’t help but be impressed with their performance and if they were to sign Aubameyang and they also got someone like a Jack Grealish, are they big players? They would be a major force, in my opinion.

“They are crying out for someone who is going to score them 20 to 25 goals, and that’s what Aubameyang can bring. He gets you 25 goals without even breaking sweat. Add a Grealish if they can get him and then you’ve got Bruno Fernandes as well playing in behind a striker, Manchester United will be a major force.”

Manchester United star Odion Ighalo has issued a heartening message of hope to football fans everywhere: We will beat coronavirus and be united again.

The frightening spread of the deadly Covid-19 bug prompted the suspension of English football until at least April 30, with the virus dominating the whole world and killing thousands of people as the world struggles to contain it.

The FA, Premier League and EFL are all desperate to finish the current season — but only when “it is safe and possible to do so”, while Clubs are closed, players are in lockdown at home and there are fears this season may still end up becoming null and void.

However, Manchester United loan striker Ighalo is positive the grave health crisis will be overcome and fans allowed back inside stadiums to cheer on their heroes once again.

The Nigerian, 30, said on the club website: “Of course I miss football, like other players and fans. But lives matter. “Staying safe and alive is our biggest game in the world now — and we all have a role to play in it.

“Football has to take a back seat all over the planet at the moment and that is very understandable.

“Coronavirus is affecting all countries, across all continents. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this pandemic and to the families who have lost loved ones. But I know we will beat coronavirus and I urge people to remain positive.”

There are more important things on peoples minds right now and that is staying safe, but many cannot wait to see the football season start back up as it means that the vius is getting beaten.

Lets hope that is sooner rather than later guys.

Paul Merson reckons Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the perfect player for Manchester United.

One a daily basis there seems to be a new club linked with a possible move for the Gunners hitman after rumours broke that he is seriously considering leaving the club at the end of the season if he does not get the £300,000-a-week contract that he reportedly desires.

Aubameyang will have just a season left on his current deal when this season ends and the Gabonese attacker isn’t giving the impression that he wants to stay at the Emirates beyond this summer, and that has opened the door for the likes of United to swoop in and offer him a potential move to Old Trafford.

And with United joining the chase, Paul Merson has TOLD SKY SPORTS that the Gabon attacker is exactly what United has been looking for, and if they managed to secure a deal, he would make them a real force next season: “Aubameyang is what Manchester United are missing. He is a goal scorer and goal scorers are priceless.”

“If you look at United and the way they played against Manchester City a couple of weeks ago, I thought they were very, very good. You looked at them and thought they have got a chance, especially if they could also get hold of a couple more players, especially a creative midfielder.

“You couldn’t help but be impressed with their performance and if they were to sign Aubameyang and they also got someone like a Jack Grealish, are they big players? They would be a major force, in my opinion.

“They are crying out for someone who is going to score them 20 to 25 goals, and that’s what Aubameyang can bring. He gets you 25 goals without even breaking sweat. Add a Grealish if they can get him and then you’ve got Bruno Fernandes as well playing in behind a striker, Manchester United will be a major force.”
