Latest updated realized by Sky Sport , dated 25/07/2019 “Bruno Fernandes unlikely to join Manchester United” Admitting that Manchester United has been scouting the Sporting CP man but is not part of their priorities this summer. Reports says, the rumours of the Fernandes heading to Manchester have been solely driven by the Portuguese side.
In My Opinion : Manchester United have a lot in their plate currently. Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to rebuild the confidence in the dressing room first and work with what he has currently. United who finished 6th last season sure, Ole has quite a lot to work on. United still has the likes of Paul Pogba ,Juan Mata , Jesse Lingard , Nemanja Matic and Andreas Pereira in mid , which is good enough for now. Also United has yet to decide which players will be leaving Old Trafford this summer before actually considering bring any players.
Fernandes certainly enhanced his reputation on Wednesday night when he scored in his Team’s draw against Liverpool FC. And he will surely be a good addition to the United squared, on the next Transfer window.

Reports suggest; Real Madrid will accelerate their pursuit of Manchester United star Paul Pogba. The Red Devils want £150million but Perez is hopeful that - with the help of Pogba himself - they can get a deal over the line.
In My Opinion: I don’t see this move actually happen this transfer window. United need Paul, if United decides to let him go; Madrid will have to let go the likes of Isco and United will have to bring in Fernandes.
Is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a winger for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Wales national team. Renowned for his ball striking from distance, swerving free kicks, and his ability to get past defenders with pace, Bale has received plaudits from his peers, who have described him as a footballer with "tremendous speed, great crossing ability, a great left foot and exceptional physical qualities.
With big guns such as Bayern & PSG showing interest for the Welsh born Winger and the future of Winger is uncertain. Talks In Town, Chinese based team Jiangsu Suning made an offer of £20million which was declined by Madrid. Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain remain closely linked to Bale yet no offer has been made by either clubs.
Jonathan Barnett, Bale’s Agent told Sky Sport that the Welsh Footballer will not be leaving Madrid this summerhttp:// https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11835/11768819/gareth-bale-will-not-leave-real-madrid-on-a-makeshift-loan-deal-says-agent-jonathan-barnett
In My Opinion : Injuries have been Bale’s greatest downfall. When Bale began his Bernabeu career back in 2013, there were rarely doubts over Bale's untouchable stature. Madrid under Zidane, preferred a 4-3-3 formation, placing Bale on the right wing, which he excelled. With injuries being the downfall for the Welsh Footballer and silverware at stake, manager Zidane opted an approach for the last crucial stages of Campagin bringing Isco at the tip of a 4-4-2 midfield diamond as Ronaldo centrally alongside Benzema
When the manager called upon Isco, he grabbed the opportunity with both hands and did wonders. Isco excelled in the position , as Real won their last 6 League games to take the title , and overcame rivals Atletico Madrid in their UEFA semi-finals and went on to thrash Juventus 4-1 in the final . That grand finale in Cardiff was bittersweet for Bale. He had returned to fitness but was left on the bench until the game was already won, denying him the dream scenario of a starring role in a showpiece occasion staged in his hometown.
In hindsight, those few weeks can be seen as the turning point in his reputation at Real, especially in the eyes of Zidane. Bale's status as an unquestioned starter was never truly regained - and explains why his departure now seems inevitable. Bale still has a lot to give with Hazard joining the Spanish Giants’ and also having been featured in Madrid’s Pre-Season game this past Wednesday.
1.Jordan Ayew - Swansea City to Crystal Palace - £2.5m 2. Trezeguet - Kasimpasa to Aston Villa - £8.75m 3. Ademola Lookman - Everton to RB Leipzig – undisclosed 4. Dean Henderson - Manchester United to Sheffield United, loan
The Leicester City, centre back has been the Talk of the Town this transfer market. The English born`is reportedly believed to make a "seamless" transition to the level as Manchester United is interested in the 26 year old, according to Sky News.
Reports suggests that Leicester is not making it easy for United, as Leicester previously rejected a bid for the centre back of £70m. Leicester is believed to be willing to let go of the centre back, for world record deal of atleast £80m, the record which is held by Liverpool’s centre back Virgil Van Dijk at £75m
In My Opinion: United need to strengthen their defence, this is a MUST for them. Last season United conceded 54 goals in just 38 League games. The Red Devils suffered one of the club’s worst seasons in their history as they were unable to finish in the first five in the Premier League table. When United seemed to be falling apart since the departure of Sir Alex Fegerson, one player in my books that has been persistent is David De Gea. Dispute United’s being unsteady in defence, De Gea has always been homogeneous. With Headlines stating the 26year old is to make a “Seamless Transition” it’s only a matter of time.
The Argentinian international, is believed to be considering his future at Juventus. According to Sky news the 25 year old, has attracted Tottenham Spurs, with a £80m bid already made by Spurs
In My Opinion: Dybala still has a lot to give and is still young and hungry for silverware which Spurs has been on a dry spell. In four seasons at Juventus following a move from Palermo, Dybala has scored 78 times in 182 appearances. These are not such bad numbers, Dybala has the opportunity to play with 2 of the greatest soccer players and learn from them. (Messi- Country Level and Ronaldo – Club Level) which is why I don’t see this move being possible.
