Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund have further advanced in their talks to signing Jadon Sancho. The deal expected to be a record-breaker with United to have agreed for a deal for €120 million as it will be the highest bid for an English player. As per the recent reports, they are close to signing the deal and Sancho has been the main target for the summer transfer window.
Former Tottenham Hotspur star Rafael van der Vaart is hopeful that Harry Kane will remain with Spurs for the forthcoming seasons. The England international has spent his entire career with the north London side and he has been an excellent contributor with 188 goals from 287 appearances across all competitions.
Former Tottenham Hotspur star Jurgen Klinsmann believes Harry Kane does not need to leave the north London side in order to win trophies. The England international recently suggested that he may not remain with Spurs forever and would consider an exit, if they are not moving in the positive direction.
Former Sunderland striker Kevin Phillips has backed West Ham United to scoop for the services of Nathaniel Clyne when his contract with Liverpool expires during the summer. The England international has struggled for regular gametime with the Reds over the past three years and during this period, he has suffered a couple of long-term injury setbacks.
Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is confident that Harry Kane will remain with the north London side next season despite the recent speculation in the media. The England international recently admitted that he could pursue a fresh challenge away from Spurs, if he feels they are not moving in the positive direction.
England international Danny Rose has said that he is getting into his groove after making the loan switch to Newcastle United from Tottenham Hotspur. The left-back was starved of regular gametime after Jose Mourinho took over the reins at Spurs in November and that contributed to his decision to join the Magpies on a short-term loan in January.
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Jadon Sancho has the potential to reach the heights of Manchester City star Raheem Sterling. The England international has been in stupendous form for Borussia Dortmund this term and he has already amassed 16 goals and 15 assists across all competitions for the German outfit.
Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has said that he would like Carlo Ancelotti to make a quick return to management following his dismissal at Napoli. The Italian guided Napoli to the knockout stage of the Champions League with a stunning 4-0 win over Genk but he was still asked from the helm due to the club’s average league form.
Ancelotti has since been for a return to the English top-flight and reports have emerged that Arsenal and Everton could tussle for the services of the former Chelsea boss. Speaking on Sky Sports, Eriksson has welcomed the prospect of Ancelotti returning to the Premier League and believes the veteran has the credentials to handle a club of the stature of Arsenal.
England will be one of the favourites at Euro 2020, according to manager Gareth Southgate. The former Middlesbrough manager has also called upon his players to be prepared for a great deal of pressure when his players head to the finals. England were able to reach the finals in style after managing to overcome Montenegro with a massive 7-0 score. England have finished top of the group with just one defeat in eight matches, and the team has picked up wins in the remaining seven games. There have been an astonishing 37 goals scored by the Three Lions during this period.
England head coach Gareth Southgate has said that the Three Lions are still in a transition phase and have plenty of work to do to emerge as a top team. The Three Lions recently suffered a 2-1 defeat to Czech Republic in a Euro 2020 qualifier and that was quite a shock, considering they had not lost a single qualifying game over the past 10 years.
Speaking after the defeat, Southgate said that the squad is still under development with a number of young players establishing themselves. He added that the qualifying can’t be regarded as a cake walk and he is hoping for a strong response when the Three Lions face Bulgaria on the road on Monday night.
“We’ve had a lot of plaudits but we’ve always maintained that there’s a lot of work to be done to be a really top team. Football is all about responding to setbacks. We haven’t had too many so it feels even more unpleasant because it’s a while since we’ve felt this way. None of us like it but that’s the reality and to sail through a qualifying group with no issue is very unusual,” he told.
