Man City stance on Pochenttino as Guardiola replacement. United can line up for Paulo Dybala after Jadon Sancho transfer is off while Chelsea finds a Chilwell alternative.
Manchester City has identified Mauricio Pochenttino as Pep Guardiola successor should latter refuses to sign an extension. The city is trying to hold onto Guardiola for more couple of years. But Pep has not signed any extension beyond this summer.
Guardiola has stated last month’s about Manchester City chairman unhappiness with the club performance this season. Putting all those strenuous efforts but that couldn’t get them either of FA win or UEFA Champions League title.
However, Guardiola is also the one who has won consecutive domestic titles. According to The Sun City’s officials are worried they could end up being in an uncertain period if he doesn’t decide on his future.
The ongoing search for a manager who is able to hold the club together just like Guardiola isn’t any easier task. Mauricio Pochenttino is still jobless and hasn’t signed for any club. The manager who guided Tottenham Hotspur to Champions League final is yet with no title in the bag.
But his attitude towards his team is really worth complimenting. Barcelona is one of the clubs interested in signing Mauricio Pochenttino though the rival Espanol has also been interested and was in talks lately. But the Argentinean coach has revealed his willingness to stay in London. Moreover for someone who wants to be in England the offer from Premier League giants isn’t something to turn down.
Man United has an option to line up for Dybala
Now that Jadon Sancho transfer to Manchester United is something unlikely to happen. United has to see somewhere else. Ole Gunner Solskjaer is keen to add more quality to the squad. While the defense is the is most deteriorated area of the pitch. The manager wants to add quality to the forward area. United has revisited the transfer target list for more options.
Paulo Dybala has attracted much interest from various clubs due to his outstanding performance in Serie A. This season can be said as his best one which everyone was expecting from him.
Juventus however wants to raise funds for the summer recruitment and is ready to sell him off if the right offer comes. Besides United, Tottenham Hotspur is also interested in snapping him up.
United has suggested a swap deal for the Argentine international that include Paul Pogba going the other way. Andrea Pirlo the newly assigned manager has played alongside Pogba during his time at the Italian old lady and is very fond of him.
The deal can thus happen because United who needs a striker can give a chance to Dybala. While Paul Pogba who has been in speculations with a move to Juventus can find his way.
Cut-Price Chilwell alternative
Chelsea is looking for a left-back and has shortlisted few names. Ben Chilwell has been the topmost target from the past months but Leicester City is asking for the price would make Chelsea bankrupt. Alex Sandro would come around £36million and have long been linked with a move Stamford Bridge for two years.
Now that Juventus wants to raise the funds for the recruitment drive. It suggests that Chelsea can lay their hands on Sandro available in just half price compared to Chilwell. In 2018, Juventus has rejected a very good offer from the Blues for the Brazilian. And now, he is available for a nominal fee according to Corriere Dello Sport (via the Express). Lampard is also targeting the transfer target. Other than Sandro, Chelsea is also monitoring the situation of Lewis Dunk and John Stones.
