Move the news LIVE! Chelsea FC ‘sign’ Nkunku; Man Utd return for De Jong; Arsenal FC want Vlahovic


Arsenal return for Vlahovic

Arsenal are trying to rekindle interest in Dusan Vlahovic, a year after losing the Juventus striker.

Corriere dello Sport reports that interest from the Gunners is back on the table following Gabriel Jesus’ injury, although Manchester United cannot be ruled out either as they look to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

It remains to be seen if Juventus decide to cash in on a player they spent £62m on last January, but he looks to have plenty of suitors if they do.

Man Utd return for De Jong

When will they learn?

According to the BBC and Manchester Evening News, Manchester United are ready for the second round with Frenkie de Jong and want to pair him with Jude Bellingham in the center of their midfield.

The Barcelona midfielder – who has shown no signs of wanting to leave this summer – remains a key target for Erik ten Hag after losing him in the summer.

Bellingham are a long-term target after failing to sign him from Birmingham before the player joined Borussia Dortmund two years ago.


Southgate remains in place

An interesting line with Gareth Southgate now is that he should stay on as England manager.

As reported by common sport earlier this week, Southgate considered quitting after England’s quarter-final exit from the World Cup.

Following England’s exit, Southgate admitted it had been a tough 18 months in the job – including the boos he and his team endured in a 4-0 home loss to Hungary in Wolverhampton earlier this year.

This is understood to have greatly affected Southgate, who does not want to continue beyond the World Cup without the support of the English faithful.

Antoine Griezmann is a name that features prominently in today’s transfer dispatches.

Cristiano Ronaldo may ‘retire from football’

Cristiano Ronaldo’s future remains the subject of fierce speculation, with the Portuguese superstar looking at a career-ending crossroads following his country’s painful exit from the World Cup quarter-finals (where he was benched ).

He remains independent at club level after an acrimonious early exit from Manchester United last month and trained with former club Real Madrid this week in a bid to stay fit, with a big salary rumored to be in Saudi Arabia not yet officially fulfilled.

Now former United team-mate Patrice Evra has caused a stir as he raised the prospect of his friend quitting for good.

“When I spoke to him, I didn’t talk about what he was going to do next,” Evra told Sky Sports. “We talked more about life and family.


“But I don’t know [what he will do next]. Messi said he will retire [from the World Cup]but I don’t know if Ronaldo will retire, because sometimes when you receive a lot of criticism, especially at the end of your career, you say to yourself ‘OK, I think it’s time to stop’.

“It must be a feeling, especially when you are not in the starting XI of your national team, because that is what Cristiano wants; play, get fit and win the World Cup with his country. It was his dream; now he doesn’t have that dream.

“Although I won’t speak for Cristiano, I wouldn’t be surprised if he said he was going to retire. Now all Cristiano does is be a ‘bad person’, a ‘bad player’ or whatever. I wouldn’t be surprised if he decides to retire. »
