United urged to sign £80m striker, Giants told to sell €31 million-per-annum Man United target and Madrid expect Ramos to leave
United told to sign Calvert-Lewin, Juve told to sell Ronaldo and Madrid expect Ramos exit in Manchester United roundup…
Manchester United have been urged to launch a summer transfer raid on Everton for Dominic Calvert-Lewin, but would he be a good signing?
Former United defender Ferdinand has told his FIVE YouTube channel: “Listen, Dominic Calvert-Lewin for me, I love him.
“I’ve watched a lot of Everton this year and he’s one that unnerves defenders. He’s not one you want to play against week in, week out. He’s aggressive, he attacks the ball.
“I was speaking to Carlo Ancelotti earlier this year and he mentioned [Filippo] Inzaghi and said he didn’t need many chances to score goals and he scores goals in and around the six-yard box.
“I look at Calvert-Lewin this season and he’s listened to that, he’s taken that on board. Obviously, he seems a real good student of the game and he’s started putting that into his own game.
“We’ve seen the rewards he’s had, he’s got into the England squad by scoring loads of goals in and around the six-yard box, scoring those ugly goals. I think he’d be a fantastic signing for Manchester United.
“It’s one out of left field a little bit but I think he’d have a big impact. He’d get on the end of the things created by Fernandes, Pogba, [Marcus] Rashford, [Mason] Greenwood, etc.”
Calvert-Lewin has 15 Premier League goals this season, but at a massive club like Man United, could he handle the pressure?
Rumours are rife in the media once again that Juventus may seek to offload Manchester United target Cristiano Ronaldo during the summer transfer window.
Regarded as one of the finest players to ever grace the game, Ronaldo is a man that is classed as global superstar in the game and has pretty much won everything in the game that a player can win at club level.
However, despite the fact that he is the clubs main man, there has been some speculation in the media that a move back to the Premier League may be on the agenda, with reports the Italians may have to sell the Portuguese superstar.
That has been played down by the Italians in recent weeks, who have defiantly suggested that they have no intention of letting the superstar depart the club at the end of the season.
But as we said, rumours are still rife and if you believe Reports on Goal, Juve are still struggling, both from a financial and sporting perspective, prompting many pundits to claim that the ‘CR7 project’ has failed and should, therefore, be abandoned
Ronaldo has hit an impressive 25-goals in 27 Serie A games this season, but the Italians are out of the Champions League and are on the verge of losing that League title that they have dominated for the last ten seasons.
Plus the forward’s €31 million-per-annum salary is something that they would like to offload, especially as they are now in debt because of the Covid outbreak.
Look, Ronaldo has been a superstar for many seasons, but he cannot produce in every game and needs his team-mates to chip in, which they have not been doing. But if they do get rid, it would be a massive shock to see him come to the Premier League, he has won everything in England and has nothing else to prove.
Maybe a move to Germany or France may be on the agenda for the great man.
Real Madrid expect captain Sergio Ramos to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season, with Manchester United reportedly interested in a transfer deal
There is no doubt that Ramos has been one of the very best central defenders for well over 10 years now, and looked like that he was going to retire at the Spanish giants.
However, that may not be the case after news broke that he has not agreed a new contract at the club, which means that he may have to leave the club at the end of the season with a move to the Premier League possibly on the agenda.
A new contract offer has been on the table for five months but Ramos’ failure to respond has led Los Blancos to believe he is ready to accept a better offer elsewhere.
Real’s offer is believed to include a 10% reduction in wages as they look to cut costs across the board – something Ramos seemingly isn’t prepared to accept.
The news comes a few weeks after Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has admitted he is unsure what the future holds for the club captain, Speaking at a press conference earlier in the season, Zidane said: “I want to be honest and I have to say I don’t know what’s going to happen with him.
“We want him to stay here. He’s always going to be an important player and I want him to remain here, that’s what I’ll say as a coach.
“Will Ramos play until he’s 40? That is what Sergio has said. He is a special player. His intention is already good because he wants to continue playing.
“Every year he will know if he is in good shape and, if he is like he is now, of course he can play until he is 40, if he wants.”
