Red Devils Continue Interest in Winger Jadon Sancho

Manchester United are once again on the trail of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho. The England international was Manchester United’s top transfer target last season, but they failed to get the deal over the line.

Fast forward to this season, and the situation hasn’t changed much for the Red Devils. The record Premier League winners still remain in pursuit of the English international, but there has been a drop in his price.

With the team playing much better upfront, the question arises over whether Manchester United need to prioritize the signing of the 21-year-old England international.

We have taken a look at whether Manchester United should prioritise the singing of Jadon Sancho.

Why a Move to Watford May Not Make Sense for Liverpool’s Harvey Elliott

As Watford return to the Premier League, they know attacking reinforcements are needed for survival.

After solidifying their midfield by signing highly-rated Imran Louza, the Hornets can focus their attention on the goalscoring front, with Liverpool winger Harvey Elliott one potential target.

According to Tom Hopkinson of The Daily Mirror, Watford are eyeing a season-long loan move for Elliott. The 18-year-old is expected to return to Anfield for pre-season before Klopp decides how he wants him to spend the 2021/22 campaign.

We have taken a look at whether a move to Vicarage Road would be the correct transfer for Harvey Elliott.

A Risk That May Just Continue Tottenham Hotspur’s Downward Spiral

Going from Antonio Conte to Paulo Fonseca in the space of a week must feel like going from a diamond ring to a Haribo ring for Tottenham Hotspur fans, such is the reputation of the two.

Paulo Fronseca is no terrible manager, that’s for sure. The former Roma man was a serial winner at Shakhtar Donetsk and also won the Portuguese Super Cup at Porto.

In comparison, however, Conte is a former Premier League winner who has just ended Juventus’ near-decade spell of dominance in the Serie A.

Conte arrived at Inter Milan before transforming them into a title-winning side and leaving. When a manager of that calibre is available, you fight with everything you’ve got to secure him if you’re Spurs.

We look at the potential impact of Tottenham Hotspur appointing Paul Fronseca.

Arsenal Want Championship Experience for Dan Ballard

Arsenal U23 defender Dan Ballard is to be sent out on loan once again. This time to a Championship side as he steps up his personnel development.

Reports state Arsenal are set to let Dan Ballard gain further experience out on loan. But only this time will it be to a Championship club. His destination at this moment is still to be decided.

However, they claim that there are several established Championship clubs in the race for his signature.

The defender is likely to join a second-tier side as he looks to continue his development away from the Emirates.
