Arsenal Target Ajax Goalkeeper, Andre Onana

Published

on

Arsenal are still on course to sign Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana.

The Cameroon international is awaiting on a decision from his appeal to a one year doping ban.

If the penalty is shortened from one year, Ajax expect Arsenal to pay €6-9m for Onana. If the sanction remains unchanged, the transfer amount will be €2m.

And with the appeal result looming, football.london says it is still very likely Arsenal will complete the deal.

A product of Barca’s La Masia academy, 25-year-old Onana has made over 200 appearances in five years with Ajax.

Man United Make £50m Bid For Madrid Defender, Varane

Published

Varane

Manchester United made a £50million attempt to sign Real Madrid French defender Raphael Varane but the Laliga giants are holding out for £80m.

Man United remain in dialogue with Madrid and will seek a compromise over the fee, but are reluctant to meet the £80m valuation as Varane is out of contract next year.

Madrid are prepared to sell Varane, 28, to United and have already offset his possible departure by signing auxiliary centre-back David Alaba from Bayern Munich on a free transfer.

Sergio Ramos is leaving Madrid after 16 years but the club has debts of €901m and president Florentino Perez has stressed they are unable to finance any marquee moves this summer.

Several clubs are prepared to move for Varane only when his contract expires next year but Perez is intent on obtaining a fee.

Varane has spent a decade at the Bernabeu and was outstanding in France’s European Championship win against Germany on Tuesday.

With the added exposure of the Euros, Madrid are trying to maximise Varane’s resale value despite the short length of time remaining on his contract

Man United have earmarked Varane as their ideal defensive target to complement Harry Maguire and have a long-standing interest in the Frenchman since they attempted to sign Varane from Lens in 2011.

Varane is a boyhood United fan whose hero was Rio Ferdinand and earlier this year he rejected an enticing contract offer from Madrid that included the club captaincy.

He felt there was still a disparity between his salary offer and what his best-paid teammates earn.

Euro 2020: Sweden Edge Slovakia, Move Top Of Group E

Published

on

Emil Forsberg’s goal was enough to give Sweden the much important three points against Slovakia in Friday’s Euro 2020 Group E game.

The Sweden midfielder converted a 77th-minute penalty to give his team a 1-0 victory at Saint Petersburg Stadium, putting the Swedes on the brink of the knockout stage.

A point in their final game against Poland at the Krestovsky Stadium on Wednesday would be enough to be sure of a top-two finish in the group.

Slovakia could have qualified with a game to spare with a win, but still have their fate in their own hands ahead of their final match against Spain in Seville.

Busquets Tests Negative For COVID-19

Published

on

Sergio Busquets has tested negative in the PCR test he took and is en route to Las Rozas today to join up with La Roja before they head to Seville this afternoon according to Diario AS.

He won’t face Poland tomorrow, but he’s expected to be ready for Spain’s third match at Euro 2020 next Wednesday, against Slovakia.

The Barcelona midfielder had tested positive the weekend before Euro 2020 got underway, throwing Luis Enrique’s plans for the opener against Sweden into chaos.

They drew that game 0-0 at La Cartuja, dominating proceedings but failing to carve open their visitors, who sat deep with a strict 4-4-2 shape. To improve this, Luis Enrique is said to be considering making a change at full-back, midfield and forward

Luis Enrique could bring in Gerard Moreno, but not in place of the much-maligned Alvaro Morata. The pair could form a double-pronged attacking two, with Ferran Torres making way. Aymeric Laporte and Pau Torres look set to continue at centre-back, but Jose Luis Gaya could come in for Jordi Alba.
