Timo Werner joining Chelsea may lead to Man Utd missing

Timo Werner has now been confirmed as a Chelsea player for next season and that could reportedly lead to Manchester United missing out on another transfer target. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been desperate to bolster his attacking options ever since last summer when the club failed to replace Romelu Lukaku.

Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have both impressed, while Mason Greenwood has emerged as a talent of the future, but Solskjaer still wants to bring in an out-and-out striker.While Werner was strongly tipped to join Liverpool, United had also held an interest in stealing the striker away from RB Leipzig.

It means Leipzig will be looking for a replacement in the summer and Le10 Sport claim they have identified Wissam Ben Yedder as the ideal option.

Monaco are said to be open to negotiating a deal to sell Ben Yedder despite him only having joined last summer.

It is claimed the French club are demanding £36million to entertain selling the 29-year-old, who scored more than half of Monaco’s goals in Ligue 1 this past season.

United though have also been tracking Ben Yedder for several months and have even made contact with the forward’s representatives.

But when Liverpool pulled out of negotiations as they weren’t prepared to pay Werner’s release clause, Chelsea swooped in to agree personal terms.Odion Ighalo has had his loan spell extended, but reports have suggested the United boss will still target another forward in the summer transfer window.

Werner willing to miss Leipzig’s Champions League run to join

Manchester City are interested in signing defender Achraf Hakimi this summer, The Sun reports. The right-back is currently impressing on loan from Real Madrid at Borussia Dortmund, and while the German club are keen to make the move permanent, City are also keen on the 21-year-old, with Chelsea and Arsenal also monitoring whether Real may be willing to sell the Moroccan.

Paper Round’s view: If Hakimi is attracting attention then you better believe Real themselves know they have a player on their hands. They will not let go of him lightly, and may yet be willing to offload him on loan for another season before bringing him back to the Bernabeu. A permanent move away seems unlikely.

Maurizio Sarri wants to bring Chelsea duo Jorginho and Marcos Alonso to Juventus, the Express reports. Sarri brought Jorginho to Stamford Bridge when taking charge of Chelsea in 2018, and now the Juve head coach wants the midfielder, as well as Alonso, in Turin. Chelsea reportedly value the duo at €80m, and Juve are pondering what players they could offer in any potential deal.

Leicester and Crystal Palace are set to battle it out for James Tarkowski’s signature, the Mirror reports. Burnley slapped a £50m pricetag on their defender when Leicester came in search of a replacement for Harry Maguire last summer, but the Foxes have renewed their interest in the England international, with Palace set to rival them when the transfer window opens.

Wouldn’t worry about it. Two more wins….

Who ever programed the super computer is byast.. probably a man utd fan.. because if it was based on won loss draws… goals and comceded.. even a 9 year old child will predict liverpool to win at least 5 draw maybe 3 possible loose 1… and that would he a worst case for liverpool…

Aside from the job interview with a literal League One club before he had actually retired. That sounds an awful lot like a ‘fast track’ and a ‘golden ticket’. Mediawatch must have missed the part where Ashley Cole turned Shrewsbury Town down while he was still an active player.but hey i will laugh so hard i will poo mysrlelf if the super omputer is as far off as i think it will be and hopefully never he used in convosations again… computers cannot take into account human error.. ref desisions or var desisions yellow and red cards….. not to mention injuries or simple fluke goals… and definatly doesnt take into consideration man city loosing to a team like palace

Finally, something to agree on. This is literally ‘the biggest talking point for action-starved football supporters’ since March 11. Nothing has happened in the 93 days since; certainly nothing as important as a predicted Premier League table that alters the positions of four mid-table clubs and shuffles the current bottom three around while keeping them in the relegation places.

You should really consider changing your Mediawatch publication.. it’s shocking.. it baffles me how you can wince at others, slag them off for been.hypocrites, etc.. and the produce this!? You would still get the clicks if you changed.

Sombody now saying Rashford should get a knighthood. What’s next? David Beckham a knighthood for services to sarongs? That wouldn’t surprise me. They did give Bobby Charlton a knighthood for services to ticket touting.

Isn’t it “weird” that they try to make a point about Jordan using Rashford as the example. There’s nothing negative about what Rashford has done, it’s a good news story.. just leave it at that. We know what Jordan said, and it wasn’t particularly out of character, so let it go.. he is what he is.

Personal fitness plan giving him an edge

Prior to his switch to Brescia, there was talk of a move to Flamengo in Brazil, while more recently fellow Brazilian side Vasco da Gama have been linked as a potential destination, as well as Galatasaray in Turkey or the MLS.

Gabriel Jesus is a natural. He was a Brazilian title winner and an Olympic gold medallist while still a teenager. By the time he arrived at Manchester City the following year he had already scored five goals in his first six appearances for his country and looked an obvious bargain even at £27m. But there is much more to Jesus’ success than mere natural talent.

Seven goals in his first 10 Premier League appearances won over the crowd. His 94th-minute winner against Southampton on the final afternoon of his first full season at City, took the team to 100 points. But throughout that campaign Jesus was demanding more of himself.

The demands of the Premier League were such that Jesus’ diet came under scrutiny. Pep Guardiola had to instruct him to stop drinking coca cola but that wasn’t the only issue.

“Pizza, bread, I loved all that,” he admits. “I loved burgers. That was all so bad for me and my body. But this was my life before Andre came.”

Perhaps there will be another shot in a big league. But whatever his next move, Balotelli’s brief time back in Brescia feels like a frustratingly familiar story for the forward.

Those examples reflect Balotelli’s performances

The attitude and application of the Premier League winner clearly frustrates his current coach, Lopez, too. He has revealed Balotelli’s commitment to maintaining his fitness during lockdown didn’t match that of his team-mates.

“I believe that everyone is master of his own destiny but not in words. With gestures,” he said. “Mario trains on his own because his team-mates have made a journey that he hasn’t done. It was optional, OK, but the group took one path and he took another.

A long-term injury to fellow striker Ernesto Torregrossa has limited the alternatives for Lopez and Brescia but, regardless of their situation, president Cellino has decided he has seen enough and his club can do without this star name.

The inevitable question is – where next for Balotelli now? Clubs in England, France and Italy have all seen first hand the maddening mix of magic and disruption he brings with him. Would teams in those divisions be prepared to gamble on him delivering the consistency which he has rarely shown so far in his career?

Brescia are nine points from safety with 12 games remaining and, despite Cellino appointing three different managers in the space of the season, they have struggled with the step up in leagues, paying for not strengthening their squad further last summer.

“During the quarantine, he did not show up on Zoom. Although he says he is fine, he is not at the level of his companions. He has to recover, period.”

West Ham are planning a London derby double-header

Defender David Luiz has taken to social media to thank a social inclusion officer at Arsenal for all his good work during the coronavirus pandemic.

And the Brazilian also admitted that this is the sort of thing that makes the Gunners so special.

Son Heung-min cannot wait to be back on the field with 10 mates — after spending three weeks of military service with 10 strangers.

The 27-year-old admitted the first few days of his tour of duty took some getting used to – but insists he enjoyed his taste of army life.

He said: “It was a good experience. I couldn’t say everything that I’ve done but I really enjoyed it.

“The first day when we don’t know each other was a bit weird but soon we got to know each other.

“We spent every day together in one room, 10 people very close, working together, we helped each other so the time was fantastic.

“Those guys, the first day and second day they couldn’t even speak to me but by the end they were joking with me and we were enjoying everyone together.

“Those guys were nice. The three weeks were tough but I tried to enjoy it.

“I don’t know how the people felt, but for me the three weeks have been long but it was a good experience, I enjoyed it.”

He wrote: “Ashley is a Social Inclusion Officer @AFCCommunity

“During this crisis he’s been delivering emergency supplies into the community – including here at @NHSHomerton

“People like Ashley are what makes @Arsenal so special

They have contacted Arsenal and Crystal Palace in the hope

Marcus Rashford believes he will be ready to face old boss Jose Mourinho on the first day of Project Restart.

The Manchester United forward has been sidelined since he suffered a stress fracture of his back in mid-January.

However he was one of the first players to return to Carrington after it re-opened following the Coronavirus shutdown.

And the signs are that his hard work has paid off – as he has told friends will be fit for the first game.

Former Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, now on loan at AC Milan from AFC Bournemouth, has spoken out on life in Italy amid the coronavirus pandemic.

He told The Guardian: “When I first came back, nobody was in the streets and there was absolutely nothing happening.

“It seems like now we are getting back to somewhat normal life again.”

And on the rigours of preparing to return to action in the Covid-19 era, he continued: “Training has been absolutely fine.

“So far the club and everyone involved has done a great job and you don’t feel uncomfortable at all. It has been tough, like pre-season really, but it’s awesome after such a long break to be back doing what we love doing.

“It is an honour to be part of this club. I have come to Milan and seen what this club means.”

That is scheduled to be away to Tottenham – where his old boss Mourinho is currently in charge.

Coronavirus in Sport LIVE: Premier League Covid testing LATEST

Katie Boulter is using her time in lockdown to comfort vulnerable OAPs.

The big-hearted British star, who has been staying with fellow player Laura Robson, signed up to be an Age UK volunteer.

Dele Alli is still waiting to hear if he will be banned for Project Restart — THREE MONTHS after being charged by the FA.

Spurs star Dele faces a potential three-match suspension for misconduct, having posted a video on Snapchat mocking an Asian man and joking about coronavirus.

Boulter, 23, admits she is desperately missing her Leicester-supporting grandad Brian, 84, who she has not seen since February.

So in an attempt to help others, she has completed her Age UK welfare training.

Boulter said: “The plan is to visit and have a relationship with elderly people. I cannot wait to start.

“I can try and help them during this difficult time. I’ve always had a close relationship with my grandpa.

“What they do is pair you with up to three people. You can go and see them, talk to them over the phone, do their shopping for them.

“Basically just try and help them make their lives a little bit easier. Hopefully they won’t feel so lonely. It’d be great if they’re Leicester fans — I’d have a lot to talk to them about!

“It’s hard for everyone but for those who don’t have people living with them, I’m sure it’s been an extremely tough period. If I can help in any way then it’d make me happy.”

Haaland and Can have helped transform Borussia Dortmund since last

While the phenomenon of home advantage may have been lost since the Bundesliga returned behind closed doors following the coronavirus-enforced suspension, Favre – whose Dortmund side will host Bayern – insists conclusions from their previous meeting are irrelevant this time.

“Obviously we didn’t play well in the first meeting,” Favre told reporters. “It was three days after our home match against Inter.

“Since then we improved and play with another system. It suits our squad more. In the transfer market we signed two players [Haaland and Can] and have more presence on the pitch now. We are simply better than back then, but this match [the 4-0 defeat] definitely was not good from us.”

The Bundesliga top two meet in Tuesday’s Klassiker, with the champions having won 4-0 in their clash earlier this season

Lucien Favre is convinced Borussia Dortmund will be an entirely different beast in Tuesday’s Klassiker to the one Bayern Munich thrashed 4-0 earlier in the season, with Erling Haaland and Emre Can playing a big part in that.

Bayern were comfortable victors in the first clash of the season back in November, with a Robert Lewandowski brace added to by Serge Gnabry’s effort and a Mats Hummels own goal.

Tuesday’s encounter will likely play a vital role in deciding where the Bundesliga title ends up, with Bayern four points clear of Dortmund at the summit.
