Manchester United face major concern as influential 26-goal ace ready to quit

Category: Euro news

Manchester United could be set for a major blow this summer as it’s claimed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is prepared to leave the club.

The 35-year-old has been a hugely positive influence on the club since his arrival on a free transfer last summer, as he reiterated his importance with a brace in the EFL Cup final triumph on Sunday.

That took his tally for the season up to 26 in all competitions, as he continues to inspire United this season and has played an influential role in helping Jose Mourinho’s side compete for top honours and a top-four finish in the Premier League.

However, according to The Mirror, the Swede has yet to decide on what he will do next as his contract expires at the end of the season, while he has an option to extend for a further year.

It’s claimed that the biggest sti...

Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin is reportedly ready to reject a move to Barcelona in favour of making a switch to Manchester City instead.

The 21-year-old has firmly established himself as a key part of Arsene Wenger’s plans over the last two-and-a-half seasons, making the right-back position his own with a series of impressive performances and by showing good consistency.

According to Don Balon, the Spanish international has decided where his future lies, and although he isn’t keen on returning to Barcelona, it’s claimed that he’s interested in working for Pep Guardiola and would theref...

But does Mata get the recognition he deserves?

Yet despite this, like the true professional he is, Mata got his head down and proved he was worthy of place in the United squad, during the pre-season campaign, this for Jose was enough for him to survive.

Liverpool face a trip to Leicester City on Monday night, and they’ll likely travel without Daniel Sturridge and Dejan Lovren.
