Manchester United players donate part of their salary to local NHS

Manchester United captain Jerry McGuire has taken the initiative and urges teammates to donate 30% of their salaries to local Manchester hospitals. The funds are likely to be used to procure equipment for doctors and paramedics to help the first battle line in the battle against Coronavirus.

Maguire suggested the decision to club manager Ed Woodward, who immediately accepted it.

Legendary English footballer Gary Lineker has decided on Monday to donate his salary to the British Red Cross in aid of the most vulnerable to the Quidd-19 pandemic.

The Red Devils are among the richest sports collectives in the world and so far no wage cuts have been made, but the players themselves have decided to contribute as soon as possible to end the dangerous virus pandemic.

Coronavirus has caused a serious financial crisis. Even the wealthiest sports groups are not immune to the crisis. Several media reports claim that Juventus will sell Cristiano Ronaldo because of the crisis.

The Portuguese wizard has an annual salary of 31m euros and a contract for the next two seasons. In a time of financial crisis, Ronaldo’s salary is a huge burden for Juventus.

The media have speculated that the Turin based club might hear offers from other clubs for Ronaldo. Speculation suggests Juventus would be satisfied with €70m. The only question is who would set aside that much money for a 35 year old footballer.

Reportedly there were two clubs, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

The Red Devils have wanted to return the player which they sold for €94m in 2009 to Real Madrid, while PSG are considering Ronaldo, should the two biggest stars Neymar and Kilian Mbappe leave the club.

With the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, Ole has been making plans of how to keep his players engaged during this unanticipated break.

When the Premier League was suspended on March 16 due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Manchester United was sitting fifth in the table. And all the players were forced into self-isolation as the entire country soon went into lockdown, with the 2019/20 season on hold.

Head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has realised the potential of this sudden and rather unwelcome break. He has called upon the significant others (Read: Man United Players Wife’s and Girlfriends – WAGS) of the Manchester United forward and asked them for help.

He hopes to push the forwards into training better and work on their finishing, with the inclusion of their wives and girlfriends. He has told his players to play mock matches and have training sessions with their significant others and other family members, so that by the end of the isolation period, Manchester United can come out in top form.

He has even given a detailed diet plan and training routine for each player individually.

“The players have got individual programmes and they’ve got their own diets, of course, and this period could be used to work on something special, something specific for them and their roles and tasks,” the United manager told the club’s website on Tuesday.

“I’ve been in the garden, with the kids, working on finishing and the strikers should be working on finishing or their movement. Most of the players have got good facilities and decent gardens so, hopefully, their wives and girlfriends will be able to put some passes and crosses in.

Ole has also said that he has been keeping in touch with the players through WhatsApp messaging and through some phone calls.

“I just keep in touch with them on WhatsApp groups and messages, and we plan for whenever we get back and what kind of sessions for when we do start. But it’s such an unknown and we don’t really have an idea and are not 100 per cent about when we’ll start,” Ole added.

Manchester United In Talks With Dortmund Over Jadon Sancho, Will Have To Pay Over €110m

Manchester United have reportedly contacted Borussia Dortmund about Jadon Sancho.

With the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, clubs have stepped up their pursuit of top talents ahead of the summer transfer window.

United have been linked with Sancho for well over a year now along with Premier League rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea. The Reds are finding it hard to come up with Sancho’s £100m asking price while Chelsea seem to have deterred from their interests due to their current talents.

Ed Woodward is always open to transfers which will catch headlines. He would not opposed the idea of acquiring Sancho, given his talents and brand value at this point of time. Of course, Dortmund will not accept anything less than a premium fee for their prized teenage sensation.

Sancho have been directly involved in 29 goals in 24 Bundesliga games this season, improving further on his already impressive 2018/19 season. He is going from strength-to-strength in the BVB ranks and is already one of the best players in his position in the world.

Bruno Fernandes Has Shown Out Paul Pogba At Manchester United

Bruno Fernandes has arrived at Manchester United and put Paul Pogba on notice, according to Emmanuel Petit.

The Red Devils spent £55m to get him from Sporting Lisbon and so far, the move looks like a jackpot hit.

Fernandes has quickly become a fan favourite, helping United move closer to the Premier League fourth spot. His arrival has of course, put pressure on record signing, Pogba for obvious reasons.

The Frenchman has been limited to just 5 starts this season due to injuries and has been constantly linked with a move away from Old Trafford. Petit believes that Fernandes has taken over Pogba’s creative role and is flourishing.

Speaking to the Mirror, the former Arsenal and Chelsea player said: “Fernandes has made a huge impact. In the space of two months he is the best buy in the winter market. He has made such a big impact. It’s like he’s been at the club for six years.

“He’s changed the mentality inside the dressing room. It’s hard for a player to come in mid-season and do that. Paul Pogba was meant to be doing this at Manchester United. It’s what he should have done in terms of leadership on the pitch. But I’m looking forward to seeing them together on the pitch, I want to see if that can work, and I’m pretty sure it can work.”

Bruno Fernandes reveals dream United move and club targets for the new future

What a signing he has been!

Bruno Fernandes recently won the February Player of the Month in England’s Premier League – in what was his debut month at the country!

He is looking like a brilliant signing and could well prove to be the difference between United and other clubs in the top 4 race this season.

Here is what the player thinks of his transfer and the club!

‘The transfer market is currently, let’s say, crazy’ Fernandes said.

‘The amount paid for me was a very high amount, because the players who were bought for that kind of amount in the past are players who won the Ballon d’Or.’

‘It’s difficult to compare football now with football then.’

English football is different from all others.’

‘In Portugal normally small teams close up. Here teams don’t close up when they come to play at Old Trafford. They want to press to take risks, to score goals, even knowing that United could recover the ball and launch a counter-attack.’

‘So the intensity is very high. If you believed you had to think quickly in Portugal, here you have to think twice as fast.’

‘I still have to look at the lines on the road so I don’t get confused. The people here are not so friendly, they don’t let you pass like they do in Portugal.’

‘It’s been difficult because we haven’t been able to prepare our own food … but there’s a market with a few Portuguese things, mostly frozen. And my father brings me Portuguese wine when he comes over.’

Manchester was my dream club. My brother was a Barcelona fan, I was United. My father worked in Switzerland and we went to a sports shop. He bought a Barcelona jacket and I bought a United one.’

‘At the time I could just dream, of course, but I was playing for Boavista juniors, it was a completely different reality. Now I want to do everything I can to make my mark here.’

‘In the first game I heard fans singing my name, my song … It’s something that hits you, that helps you to want to give more and more every time.’

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Sandro Tonali.

The United camp have had a horrible transfer track record in the last few years since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson. However, the club corrected their way in the last year and a half after appointing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The former United striker took over the club as an interim boss and was given the hot seat after a brilliant run. The steam has gone off since but Ole has had success in the market.

He has spent a considerable amount in buying players like Aaron Wan Bissaka, Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes already and are now turning their attention towards Sandro Tonali.

The 19 year old midfielder who plays from Brescia in Serie A is a well talked about player. He is being tipped as the next Andrea Pirlo and and has shown abilities where he well might be able to live up to those standards.

United have already signed Bruno and are preparing for life after Pogba. Paul is likely to leave United and signing Tonali will certainly suit the tune of players Ole wants at the club – young and impressive!

Man United battle to keep Odion Ighalo in team

Man United battle to keep Odion Ighalo in team

Manchester United loanee Odion Ighalo has been offered a bumper two-year contract extension by his club Shanghai Shenhua. 

The Chinese side are reportedly willing to pay the Nigerian forward $500,000 a week in order to remain in China for the next two seasons.

Boyhood United fan Ighalo has impressed during his time at Old Trafford, scoring four times in eight appearances for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.

“I think he’s warranted the opportunity now to come in as a full-time player,” United legend Rio Ferdinand said this week of Ighalo potentially making the move permanent this summer.

“And what he gives Manchester United, which they didn’t have, is someone you can pass the ball into and can hold it up, he’s got a physical presence, he can hold off a defender or two and lay the ball in for someone else to score.

“When you see Rashford when he’s fit, I think he will appreciate playing with someone like this. He can have the impact on the Rashfords and the Martials and the Dan James’ that someone like Henrik Larsson can have on the likes of Rooney, Saha etc.

“That experience and he’s got that little bit of difference that’s different to someone else where you go ‘actually I’ll take that little element from his game and I’ll learn from that, I’ll add that to my game’. “I think he’s got something that’s different to all the other guys in the team, which is good, you need that little bit of difference sometimes”.

Ferdinand Mourinho would stop Kane from joining Man Utd

Harry Kane is unlikely to join Manchester United because Jose Mourinho would not allow Tottenham to sell its star striker to the Red Devils, says Rio Ferdinand.

There has been growing speculation England captain Kane will be open to the idea of departing Spurs if the club does not realise his ambition of winning major trophies.

It is thought Spurs would want at least £150million for its talisman, with United having been touted as a possible destination for Kane. But Ferdinand doubts former Red Devils boss Mourinho, now in charge at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, would allow a deal to happen.

“Would I take Harry Kane now? Of course you would,” former United centre-back Ferdinand said on Instagram Live.

“If he’s fit and he’s raring to go, you take Harry Kane at Man Utd, 100 per cent.

“Top player, you’re guaranteeing goals, in the Premier League you’re guaranteeing goals. This geezer scores goals but I don’t see Tottenham letting Harry Kane go. And with Mourinho there, I don’t see Mourinho letting him go to Man Utd.”

United is also thought to be among the clubs chasing a big-money deal for Kane’s England team-mate Jadon Sancho. The former Manchester City forward has been a sensation for Borussia Dortmund and Ferdinand would love to see Sancho gracing the Old Trafford turf.

“I would take Sancho all day, to Man Utd,” Ferdinand said. “Whether we’ll get him, though who knows?. Great player, great potential, English, he’s brilliant. I would take Sancho now.”
