Man Utd not interested in Marcus Rashford sale amid PSG links

Sports News
Mysport99 - Manchester United have no interest in parting ways with Marcus Rashford this summer, Mysport99 understands. The England forward entered this summer on the fringes of the United setup but, as Mysport99 revealed in June, his sights were set firmly on regaining his place at Old Trafford and he was looking forward to working under Ten Hag and Steve McClaren, both of whom are known to be fans of his. The managerial duo have spoken with Rashford about his role in the team and his future at United, and the 24-year-old is happy working under Ten Hag and McClaren. Rashford has less than a year remaining on his contract - although United do have an option to extend by 12 months - and Mysport99 understands that intermediaries representing Paris Saint-Germain, who have shown ...

Man Utd considering move for Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot

Sports News
Mysport99 - Manchester United are deciding whether to pursue a move for Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot, Mysport99 understands. The 27-year-old has been told he can leave the club the Serie A giants this summer and his services have been offered around Europe. Monaco have been leading the race to sign Rabiot and have held talks, but his sizeable wages are proving problematic - bringing United into contention to sign him.

Aguero admits Haaland struggled against Virgil van Dijk

Sports News
Mysport99 - Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero has lamented Erling Haaland's Community Shield performance, admitting that Virgil van Dijk got the better of the young forward. Haaland largely struggled in his first competitive game for City following his £51m move from Borussia Dortmund this summer, and even missed an open net in the dying embers of the game when his team were 3-1 down. Speaking on his Twitch channel, Aguero stated that Van Dijk - arguably the best defender in the world - bested Haaland on the day: "He was too used to Germany. "Haaland thought he was alone, then Van Dijk arrived and said 'welcome to the Premier League.'" Speaking after the game to the press, Pep Guardiola gave his analysis of Haaland's performance, stating: "He had chances, two or three ...

Ronaldo to miss Atletico Madrid friendly to ‘focus on fitness’

Sports News
Mysport99 - Cristiano Ronaldo is not expected to feature in Manchester United's pre-season friendly against Atletico Madrid on Saturday while he works on his fitness. Ronaldo missed the club's pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia through 'personal reasons' and is yet to take part in team training, having returning to Carrington earlier this week to reiterate his desire to leave the club. United held a behind-closed-doors friendly against Wrexham on Wednesday, allowing new signings Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen to get a run-out as the Red Devils picked up a 4-1 win, but Ronaldo watched on from the sidelines. With a week to go until the start of the Premier League season and United determined to keep hold of the veteran striker, the focus is now on rebuilding Ron...

Chelsea consider alternative defenders as Barcelona threaten Jules Kounde pursuit

Sports News
Mysport99 - Chelsea have stepped up their scouting of a handful of alternative defenders as their pursuit of Sevilla's Jules Kounde continues to stall, Mysport99 understands. The Blues have agreed a £55m fee with Sevilla and have already struck a deal on personal terms with the centre-back, and it looked as though they were set to wrap up the transfer before a late change of heart from fellow suitors Barcelona saw them push ahead with their own move for Kounde. The La Liga giants are in constant dialogue with Kounde over personal terms and sources have confirmed to Mysport99 that the Frenchman is keen to hear their proposal and consider all of his options before making a final decision. As the only side with an agreement over both a transfer fee and a contract, Chelsea have r...

Haaland was wanted by most top sides across Europe but it was confirmed last month that City had won the race for his signature, with the Premier League champions parting with a cool £55m to land the 21-year-old.
