Man United in the hunt for €90m-rated Portugal international

Man United in the hunt for €90m-rated Portugal international

Red Devils are reportedly one of the clubs in the running to clinch the stunning transfer return of Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. The 34-year-old attacker has recently come under the spotlight for what appears to be a bit of a row between himself and Bianconeri coach Maurizio Sarri.

The Italian manager has hauled Cristiano off in his last two matches for the Old Lady, with the former Man United and Real Madrid forward not looking quite at his best for much of this campaign so far. Ronaldo already played 14 matches, scored six goals and provided two assists in all tournaments.

It stays to be seen if this will lead to an exit, but Ronaldo is perhaps unsurprisingly now said to be attracting interest from big names like Red Devils and Paris Saint-Germain. Portugal international has long been open to a second spell with Man United, for whom he was a star player between 2003 and 2009.

Portuguese superstar may be a risky signing now due to his age, but given the club’s shortage of quality up front, he’d surely still be useful. Red Devils have also been linked with the likes of Mario Mandzukic, Timo Werner and Erling Haaland to strengthen their front-line, so could do with Cristiano Ronaldo as a short-term option.

The French club, meanwhile, could also surely benefit from signing the legendary forward amid doubts over the futures of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. Ronaldo helped Man United to win the Champions League and Premier Leagues. He is one of the best footballers in Red Devils history.

Two ways Manchester United could line up with Donny Van de Beek transfer

Manchester United have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek.

The Guardian report that United are hopeful of signing the Dutch star who has attracted interest from several other elite clubs.

Van de Beek, 23, starred in the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season and is one of Europe’s most talented young midfielders.

We looked at two ways United could line-up next season if they complete the signing of the versatile Dutchman.

This system would allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to accommodate each of his most potent attacking threats.

While Van de Beek is most effective in a box-to-box role, he has experience shielding the back four and could provide the platform for Paul Pogba to roam in a double midfield pivot.

Van de Beek made six appearances in the defensive midfield role for Ajax in the 2019/20 season and has the ability to operate as Solskjaer’s anchorman ahead of Nemanja Matic.

However, Matic offers a more experi…

BBNaija 2020: I will find you a Bayelsa wife, someone like me – Nengi tells Ozo

Big Brother Naija housemate, Nengi, on Sunday said she will find Ozo a Bayelsa wife.

Nengi said this when Ozo said he wanted to take her on a trip after the reality show.

Ozo, however, said he was not interested in another Bayelsa wife.

“I will find you a wife when we leave this place. I will find you someone like me from Bayelsa,” Nengi told Ozo.

But Ozo responded, “if I wanted someone else, I would have chosen.”

Nengi further stated that, “When we leave the house there will be a lot of girls interested in you and you won’t have my time.”

Agreeing that it was a possibility, Ozo insisted he had found something special in her.

Nengi had warned Ozo against mistaking their friendship for a love relationship.

She had maintained that she would not date anyone in the house but Ozo is still trying and working hard to see if she could change her mind.

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …
