Manchester United are in desperate search to find the players needed to play a part in English football again. The latest player to be linked with a move to Old Trafford is Ivan Rakitic who looks finished at Camp Nou.
Chelsea could be lucky in their chace for Ben Chilwell as Leicester City could be keen to let the left back leave for a fee of £50million. Brendan Rodgers have Christian Fuchs as a cover and he is probably the best left back in the Premier League not playing at the moment.
James Maddison will probably not be a target for Manchester United next summer as the battle with Real Madrid regarding Christian Eriksen will heat up in January, with Spurs eager to get as much as possible for the Danish international. Eriksen could be held back if Manchester United will be eager to pay as much as £50million for his services.
Paul Pogba will be out with injury for at least another week or maybe two, his future at Manchester United will be sorted out in the near future as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to get a clear idea of what Pogba is interested in, looking a bit unsettled with the fans of the club. Real Madrid could be coming in and offer Gareth Bale as part of the package.
Juventus will most certainly offload Mario Mandzukic in January. Manchester United are seen to be a front runner, but clubs such as Lyon, PSG and Atletico Madrid could be in the chase with Roma, Fiorentina and Sampdoria also in the race.
Claudio Ranieri will take over Sampdoria in the next couple of days, still in demand after short periods in charge of Nantes, Fulham and Roma. The heroic act at Leicester City looks as a happening that will be seen as a job magnet for the former Chelsea boss.
Harry Kane and Eric Dier are both players that could leave Tottenham Hotspur in the summer, with the duo worried about their futures. Harry Kane (26) has been close to club trophies but not yet won anything as a player, with Eric Dier (25) not really seeing the progress of his liking. Both players could consider moving on, with Dier a Aston Villa and Leicester City possible target and as we all know Juventus, Real Madrid and Manchester United could all be opening their wallet to sign Kane.
Steven Gerrard has seen his Rangers fly to the top of the Scottish league, and that is a result recognized by major clubs in Europe. Besiktas is currently eager to get Gerrard to Turkey, but looks as the former Liverpool and LA Galaxy star will wait for a bigger catch.
Phil Parkinson is a target for the manager post at Sunderland, Mark Robins of Coventry City is ruled out after signing a new deal with the Sky Blues, and not given permission to go north for talks.
Manchester United could again sign Norwegian players, with Rostov’s Mathias Normann and Salzburg’s Erling Braut Haaland both seeing great progress and earlier been under the wings of OGS at Molde.
Manchester United will make a number of new signings in the next two windows, being six players short of again chasing the big trophies, but still they are in all competitions this season after a relatively good start in the Europa league and defeating Rochdale on penalties in their first hurdle of the Carabao Cup.
Emre Can is not happy with the game time he gets at Juventus. Three appearances so far and just 78 minutes played makes it frustrating at the moment. The former Liverpool midfielder could be a fine player to add at many Premier League and Serie A clubs, and considering a return to Bundesliga would probably alert many.
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers could use the money from a possible Ben Chilwell sale to go for Lyon forward Moussa Dembele, a player he sold to the French club from Celtic.
