McTominay excited, Kane message sent, United told Koulibaly will be sold, Henderson will be ready in Manchester United roundup..
Duncan Castles has told the likes of Manchester United that Kalidou Koulibaly will be sold during the summer transfer window.
There have been some reports in the media suggesting that United are planning for more potential new signings in this coming transfer window, as they seek to continue improving this side.
It will mean that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be able to spend a big more money and add some more quality, and experience to his squad, and one name that is on the shopping list of the United boss is that of Kouliably, who is easily regarded as one of the finest central defenders in Seria A, and around Europe.
Koulibaly has been outstanding for Napoli over the past few seasons and his performances has attracted all sorts of interest from the games biggest clubs, with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Real Madrid and even Barcelona all joining Chelsea in the chase for the defenders signature.
Napoli do not want to lose their big man, but know the interest is too strong to turn down, and with the coronavirus hitting clubs hard, it means that their big players will come into the market.
Now, amid the speculation, Castles has opened up told the likes of Manchester United that Koulibaly will be sold during the summer transfer window
Duncan Castles said on the SUN: “Gattuso has been told Koulibaly WILL be sold this summer.
“Koulibaly himself is open to that and is ready for a change of environment. He’s keen to move to the Premier League.
“Talk from Napoli is they could be looking at around £70m now for Koulibaly.”
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho insists Manchester United target Harry Kane is happy in north London and will be going nowhere this summer.
Kane is easily regarded as one of the very best strikers in the game right now and is a very loyal servant to Tottenham, but he fulled speculation a few months ago by revealing that he may have to leave the club in search of trophies.
Manchester United are one of a number of big clubs reportedly interested to trying to sign Kane, when he comes onto the market, as they believe that he could solve a long-term problem up top.
Gunners icon Paul Merson recently claimed that Kane could leave Tottenham this coming transfer window, as the way that Mourinho plays the game will not suit the style of Kane.
But Mourinho is sure he is staying put ahead of the summer window: “What the club can do? The club doesn’t need to do anything,” Mourinho said on Sky Sports news.
“The club just needs to say: ‘Harry Kane is ours, Harry Kane has a long-term contract, Harry Kane is not for sale, Harry Kane is Tottenham, Harry Kane is staying.’
“What do you have to do? We have to do nothing. We want the same, we want the same. He doesn’t want anything different from what Mr Levy wants, Mr Lewis wants and I want. He doesn’t want anything different than us.”
Dean Henderson is ready to eventually become Manchester United’s first-choice goalkeeper, according to his Sheffield United team-mate Oliver Norwood.
David De Gea seemed to have ended all transfer rumours by finally agreeing a new contract with the club which adds another three years on top of his current deal, with reports suggesting that he will now be paid around £250,000-a-week.
However, that has not stopped the rumours that United are still looking to offload in the summer and give rising talent Dean Henderson the chance to prove himself in the first team from next season onwards, after a couple of great seasons with Sheffield United.
And Norwood has now opened up and claimed Henderson is ready to eventually become Manchester United’s first-choice goalkeeper.
“Definitely, he’s proven himself this season, he’s up there with most clean sheets in the league so he’s obviously doing something right,” Norwood told Sky Sports.
“I’ve read a few things from different people and I do agree that there would be a lot more pressure on him going and playing as
Manchester United’s No 1 rather than Sheffield United’s – the scrutiny he would be under being England’s No 1 as well. I’m sure Hendo can handle that. He’s sure of himself, he’s very confident.
“I’m delighted he’s staying until the end of the season to help us, I have no doubt over the next [eight] games he will pick up some points for us.
“Next season is next season, we are not looking that far ahead.”
Scott McTominay is “very excited” about the future at Manchester United, after agreeing a new contract with the club.
The midfielder, who was given his debut by Jose Mourinho in 2017, has become a key part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and established himself as a regular starter for the club.
But after agreeing a new contract until 2025, he has now opened up and admitted that he is very excited for the future, He told United’s official website when asked about the future at Old Trafford: “Very excited.
“You see the team we’ve got now and it’s amazing. For everybody from the outside looking in they should be saying that we’ve got a real chance to go and do really well.
“For us we have to keep our feet on the ground, keep training well every day and listen to the coaching staff and the ideas they’re portraying to us and put that into practice on the pitch.
“It’s strange with no fans at the minute but hopefully in time we’ll be able to get back to normal and resume where we left off after the last game.”
He added: “You see other boys in the same situation to myself like Marcus [Rashford] and Jesse [Lingard] and Axel [Tuanzebe], boys who are doing tremendously well, and I want to be a role model for younger kids growing up and show them how you can get to a certain level with the first team.
“That’s by maintaining hard work throughout a number of years and for me that hard work doesn’t stop, it continues, and that’s the way I’ve been brought up through the football club.
“There are obviously a lot of other things going on in the world right now which are far more important than what’s happening with me, but it’s a real pleasure to be involved with this football club and hopefully going forward we’ll do really well.”
