Manchester United ready to renew contract of another graduate

October 20, 2019

Angel Gomes news

United graduate set for contract extension?

Manchester United are reportedly in advanced negotiations with Angel Gomes regarding a new and improved contract with the club.

The teenager has made just seven appearances for the Red Devils since his debut in 2017 and three of those have come during the ongoing campaign.

Gomes’ present deal with the club expires at the end of the season but Fabrizio Romano claims that talks are already underway over an extension with the club.

United have shown the intention of extending the contract of the younger players at the club and Mason Greenwood was recently handed with a new long-term contract.

Gomes has yet to establish himself with the United first team but reports indicate that the club are looking to slowly integrate him and other young graduates ahead of next season.

The Red Devils are scheduled to face Liverpool in tonight’s Premier League clash at Old Trafford. The game remains a potential must-win as they are already eight points off the top four places.

Dani Ceballos news

According to various reports in Spain, Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos, currently on loan from Real Madrid is keen on signing a permanent deal at the Emirates Stadium rather than return to his parent club. 

Ceballos has recently gone on record stating that he is ‘very happy’ in North London and that leaving Real Madrid was the right move for his career. According to the Daily Mail, the Spanish midfielder has held talks with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez expressing his intention to join the Gunners on a permanent basis. In the past, Ceballos was quoted saying that 

“I’m at Arsenal right now and I feel very good, I knew I definitely wanted to leave (and) I was right to leave Madrid. Right now I’m where I want to be, and I am very happy. My idea was to leave, play and enjoy football. Over the past two years, I have not done that. I was right to go seeing as I’m in the Spain squad.” 

Ceballos has become an important player for Arsenal under Unai Emery. The Spaniard has made 11 appearances for the North London side, scoring one goal and assisting twice. He plays an important role in bringing creativity to the side and certainly looks to be a good fit for Arsenal. If Arsenal manage to convince him to join permanently, he would become a central figure in the side.

Lampard reacts after Chelsea’s third-straight league win

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has expressed his pleasure after the Blues registered a slender 1-0 triumph over Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday.

The west London giants were the dominant team against the Magpies but they had to work hard for the victory with Steve Bruce‘s side putting up a resolute defensive display.

Marcos Alonso eventually made the difference with the winning strike in the 73rd minute and Lampard is pleased that his team are moving in the right direction.

“It sounds good. We know we want to be challenging in the top four and from a slightly difficult start it’s a good sign that we are moving in the right direction,” he was quoted as saying on BBC Sport.

The Capital outfit have temporarily moved to the fourth position in the standings with 17 points on the board but they could be leapfrogged by Arsenal, should they beat Sheffield United on the road on Monday night.

The Blues’ immediate focus will shift to the Champions League where they are scheduled to face Ajax away from home. Lampard’s side are presently in their group with four points after the opening two European games.

Anthony Martial eager to take responsibility with Manchester United

Martial keen to score regular goals for United

French striker Anthony Martial has said that he is eager to take the responsibility of leading the line for Manchester United after being rewarded with the number nine shirt.

The young forward started his United career with the jersey but he had to sacrifice the shirt between 2016 and 2019 where the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku wore the number.

For the current season, Martial has taken back the number nine shirt after the departure of Lukaku and he is now looking forward to contributing regularly to the scoresheet for the club.

“Now that I’ve taken the No 9 shirt back once again, all he [Ole] has said to me is that I have a lot of responsibility and that I have to score goals, so that’s what I am trying to do,” he told Sky Sports.

Martial has not featured for the Red Devils since the end of August with a thigh problem but he is likely to make his comeback during Sunday’s league clash against Liverpool at Old Trafford.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that the Frenchman may not participate from the starting XI after just returning to training but it remains to be seen whether there is any surprise on the cards.
