Auba told to sign with Man United, United urged to sign Nathan Ake, Haaland on future in Manchester United roundup..
Erling Haaland is giving no thought to making a move away from Borussia Dortmund, despite rumours continuing to link him with the likes of Manchester United.
Regarded as one of the finest talents in the game right now, Haaland is considered to be one of the men that go on to become a world class player and eventually challenge for that coveted best player on the planet tag.
The Norwegian striker played under Solskjaer’s tutelage at Molde and has since risen to stardom with 41 goals in 38 appearances for both Red Bull Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund, which has constantly led to speculation that United may try and bring him to the Premier League in the coming seasons.
His performances in the Bundesliga is keeping the teenager on the recruitment radar of many ambitious clubs, but he has no intention of contemplating another change of scenery any time soon.
Haaland has told the Funke Media Group: “I don’t think much about the future, I live in the present and decide what is best for my career at each specific moment.
“So I joined Dortmund in winter with a lot of conviction.
“They are one of the best teams in the world, I have signed a long contract and I have practically just arrived. So now I don’t think about leaving at all.”
David de Gea looks as though he “does not trust his back four” at Manchester United, says Paul Parker, as they have been urged to sign up Nathan Ake
De Gea is one of the best stoppers in the game right now, but over the last few months, he has not looked like the man that constantly picked up the players of the season for the club.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has continued to speak out in defence of his favoured No 1, but former United full-back Parker does believe that further reinforcements are required, with Ake a possible target.
He told Eurosport: “It wouldn’t surprise me if De Gea is on edge because he does not trust his back four. When you trust your defence, you play much better.
“I think that United need to make changes in the transfer window. Harry Maguire should not be on the left of the central defence. He should be on the right where he is more comfortable.
“I’d drop Victor Lindelof and bring in Nathan Ake from Bournemouth. Chelsea don’t seem to want him, so now is the time to make a move. He has proven that he is a good defender in a poor team. He’s comfortable on the ball.
“Being left-footed, he would bring the ball forward better than Maguire does from that side, which is needed because Luke Shaw isn’t good enough in attack either. Ake would balance the whole side.
“Every player has a blip, and it’s up to the manager to coach De Gea, to sort him out and stick him out. He can’t just throw him out.
“De Gea knows he needs to justify his contract, and the club can’t afford to stick his £300,000-a-week wages on the bench.”
Louis Saha has advised Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to follow the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Robin van Persie in leaving Arsenal and signing for Manchester United.
Aubameyang continues to be linked with a move away from the Emirates as reports indicate that he has no intention of signing a new contract that will keep him at the Emirates for the next few seasons.
That has led to alot of speculation in the media that the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona are interested in a deal, and are just waiting for the Coronavirus pandemic to pass so they can open talks and try to secure a deal for Aubameyang
And with all reports suggesting that he is not keen to sign back, up there has been alot of speculation in the media about whom could be signed in the summer to replace Aubameyang and his goals.
And amid the speculation, Saha believes Aubameyang could have a similar impact at Old Trafford.
He was quoted on TALKSPORT: ‘Arsenal fans may not like this, but I’d like him to join United, I’d be very happy with that [laughter]. I’m sure Arsenal fans would not take that well, but that’s my advice to Auba.’
Arsenal are a club that want to be challenging for titles, they want to be the best and they want to have the best of players in the side, but the transfer policy over the years has meant that the club are a long way off challenging for the big titles.
Aubameyang is a big players and wants trophies, and if Arsenal cannot offer him that, then yes he should leave.
But surely it would be a massive shock to see him make that move to Manchester United?
