Man Utd to block Maguire exit to chelsea

Manchester United beat Liverpool 2-1 at home for their first win of the season in today’s Premier League double-header highlight. After the game, Sky Sports presenter Kaveh Solhekol spoke about United captain Maguire, who was on the bench for the game, and rumours of a move for him.

“I think Chelsea are interested in signing Maguire, but the word from United at the moment is that they see Maguire as a non-sale.”

“From Maguire’s point of view, he probably needs a fresh start for a better career. 12 months ago he was playing for the England national team at Euro 2020 as a starting centre-back, so he might be frustrated at being on the bench, but let’s not forget how good a player he can be.”

“I think Chelsea want Maguire only if they don’t sign Wesley Fofana. Everyone knows Fofana wasn’t in the right frame of mind when he didn’t play at the weekend and Rodgers described the potential deal as a dream move for Fofana. But Leicester City want a transfer fee of £80m.”

“Chelsea have offered £60m, but I don’t think they will raise it to £80m. They will only pay what they think Fofana is worth.”

Barça want €30m for Aubameyang, personal terms agreed

Barca has decided to sell Aubameyang, according to the Daily Sport.

The Daily Sport said that Aubameyang will be sold by Barca this summer. After internal discussions, Barca has decided to sell Aubameyang and the coaching staff approved the transfer.

Barca is currently negotiating with Chelsea on the transfer of Aubameyang, but it is not easy, Barca hopes to get a fee of 25 million euros – 30 million euros, and not linked to the transfer of Alonso, Barca hopes to sign Alonso with a price of less than 10 million euros.

The media said that if Aubameyang leaves the team, Barca’s new aid Conde will certainly be able to complete the registration.

Ronaldo, who came on as a substitute for 10 minutes at the Double Red Meeting, is still uncertain about his future at Manchester United. According to media reports, Ronaldo still wants to leave United to join a Champions League team, and he himself had revealed on social media that he will tell the truth about the rumors in an interview soon.

Bruno Fernandez was asked after the match about the future of compatriot and teammate Ronaldo and he said, ‘There is a lot of speculation, but no one can talk about it better than Ronaldo. I might know one or two things, but I’m not going to say them. Ronaldo is very quiet, he has worked well this week and he has been doing his job. At the moment he is a Manchester United player and I don’t know if he will leave. He has said he will come out and speak soon, so you have time to hear what he has to say.’

‘For me, the fans and the coaching staff, so far Ronaldo has shown no intention of staying. We know what he can bring to the table, he showed that last year and we are sure he can continue at a high level, but it’s his decision and we have to respect him. If he stays, we’re happy. If leaving is best for him, I personally will be happy for him, because the most important thing is for him to continue at a high level and represent our national team.’

In addition, Bruno Fernandez spoke about the addition of Casemiro, saying, ‘There is no need to say much, his career speaks for itself. It helps the team become stronger.’
