Rashford sends Sancho message
Marcus Rashford has sent a not-so-subtle transfer message to England team-mate Jadon Sancho telling him to join Manchester United.
The Red Devils are keen on the Borussia Dortmund winger, who is rated at in excess of £100million, and are expected to launch a pursuit once the transfer window reopens.
“It would be good [if Sancho joined United],” Rashford said on an Instagram Live. “Sancho is a great player.
“He’s like the new generation player.
“It’s definitely exciting to watch the player he’s becoming — hopefully we can all play together. That would be good.
“He plays off the cuff. He’s imaginative.
“I think in this generation, they’re the things you need to be world class.”
Coutinho Premier League return
Philippe Coutinho to Chelsea, Arsenal or Tottenham is “possible” because of the player’s agent, according to Sky Sports transfer expert Kaveh Solhekol.
Barcelona want to sell Coutinho but are keen to recoup a significant fee for the Brazilian, which has poured doubt on Premier League clubs trying to sign the playmaker.
But Solhekol said: “Barcelona want more than £100m for a player who will be 28 in the summer. That means there will be little resale value for any interested clubs.
“Coutinho’s agent Kia Joorabchian has good contacts at Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs.
“A move to those clubs is possible, but Barcelona would have to drop their asking price dramatically or it would have to be a loan with an option to buy deal.
“Interested clubs know that Barcelona want to sell him this summer. They know that it was a big mistake for Barcelona to spend £142m on him. I can’t see how this is going to end well for Barcelona.”
Mbappe to Liverpool a no-go
Kylian Mbappe would “destroy” the Liverpool wage structure if he moved to Anfield, claims European football expert Guillem Balague.
Paris Saint-Germain superstar Mbappe has been linked with a move away from the French capital with Real Madrid targeting the France international but Liverpool are also reportedly interested in signing him.
“No [Liverpool won’t sign Mbappe],” Balague said on his YouTube channel.
“Obviously they like Mbappe but he would destroy the wage structure of Liverpool now.
“They’d have to invest a lot in getting him, so forget that one.”
Paul Pogba’s Real Madrid plan
Paul Pogba remains determined to join Real Madrid when the summer window opens, per 90min.
The France midfielder has endured a difficult campaign with Manchester United with injuries restricting him to just a handful of appearances.
But Real Madrid and Juventus have retained their interest in the 26-year-old and Pogba wants to join the former.
Pogba reportedly remains determined to link up with Zinedine Zidane, one of his idols growing up.
Juve, PSG and Bayern Munich are all keeping tabs on his situation, with Pogba out of contract in the summer of 2021, although United have the option to trigger an extra year in his deal.
Ceballos on Arsenal future
Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos insists it would be “irresponsible” to discuss his future at the minute.
The Spaniard is on loan with the Gunners from Real Madrid but will expectedly see out the season although his contract with the north London club ends in June.
Beyond that, there is uncertainty as to whether the 23-year-old will remain in Madrid or move elsewhere on a permanent deal.
“I finish my contract on June 30 but I would have to [continue to] play for Arsenal [when football resumes]. I don’t know how,” Ceballos told TV show El Chiringuito de Jugones.
“It would be irresponsible from my side to talk about my future. The most important thing will be to be important for my new team.
“I came to Arsenal to be an important player but in the last month that all disappeared [due to the coronavirus].”
