Manchester United Transfer Index: Antonio Valencia

Manchester United Transfer Index: Antonio Valencia

As part of my feature titled 'Manchester United Transfer Index', we will look at the future of Ecuador captain and veteran full-back Antonio Valencia at Old Trafford. Another season with Manchester United in the can for Valencia - who is now the longest-serving player at the club, now that Michael Carrick has retired from his playing duties. The former right-sided midfielder/full-back from Wigan joined Manchester United as a modest replacement to departing superstar Cristiano Ronaldo back in 2009/10 - when …
Too Soon for Jamaal Lascelles to Leave Newcastle United

Too Soon for Jamaal Lascelles to Leave Newcastle United

Jamaal Lascelles has been one of the breakout stars of the Premier League season and he has now established himself at the top level. The Newcastle United captain played a key role as Rafa Benitez’s side finished in the top ten in their first season back in the top-flight.

Arsenal Set to Hire Unai Emery as Wenger's Replacement

This article was published before Emery was announced as the new manager of Arsenal. After weeks of speculation that Arsenal would replace Arsene Wenger with former Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta, the BBC's David Ornstein is now reporting that former PSG and Sevilla boss Unai Emery will be appointed as the club's new manager.

Why Fred would be a good signing for Manchester United

Why Fred would be a good signing for Manchester United

Manchester United made progress this season and finished 2nd in the Premier League. This was their highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired and it is important that they have a positive summer to build on the current foundations. They have been active in the transfer window in recent years, with big name signings such as Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku arriving at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho will be keen to make more quality additions as he attempts …
Manchester United Transfer Index: Luke Shaw

Manchester United Transfer Index: Luke Shaw

As part of my weekly Manchester United transfer series, I decided to look at the career of Luke Shaw at Manchester United, the present and whether or not there is a future for the young Englishman at Old Trafford beyond the Summer of 2018. It is easy to forget some of the more simpler issues - amidst the whole argument surrounding United's Premier League season with it dividing opinion among the fans, progress versus the lack of entertainment, possibility of …

Newcastle v Chelsea Preview | Key Men, Stats & Team News

The Premier League season has been a disappointing one for Chelsea, but they go into the last day with a chance of a top-four finish. They have to travel to Newcastle and pick up three points to have any chance. Meanwhile, Liverpool will have to lose at home to Brighton. It seems unlikely that both results will go in favour of last season’s Champions, but stranger things have happened on the final day before. Rafa Benitez will be pleased with …
