Man Utd boss Solskjaer sends Ed Woodward demand
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear to Ed Woodward he needs transfer funds in January to strengthen his squad after a lacklustre start to the campaign.
The Red Devils have struggled for consistency and sit down in 10th in the Premier League.
The Norwegian explained: “We do have a clear picture of what the squad is going to look like in June/July.
“Hopefully you get as much done as soon as possible.
“With Harry coming in, Romelu going out, it was late. We do have a plan now.”
Richarlison signed new Everton contract
Richarlison has signed a new long-term contract at Everton.
“I intend to be here a long time,” Richarlison told the club’s official website.
“This was the club which gave me the opportunity to show my football. “It was here I managed to get a place in the Brazil national team and it was here I have scored lots of goals in the Premier League.
“The club trusts me and I trust them. The supporters have a lot of affection for me and I try to give back all this affection as much as possible on the pitch.
“I go out and put my life on the line for them. I try to sweat blood and tears for this club. I intend to continue honouring the shirt and making the fans happy. And I hope they continue singing my name.”
No Bruno Fernandes to Tottenham transfer
Jose Mourinho has ruled out signing Bruno Fernandes for Tottenham.
The Special One has confirmed that Tottenham will not be looking to sign the Sporting Lisbon ace, because he is out of their price range.
“We are a different club at this level,” Mourinho told Sport TV.
“We are not a club that is going to make big transfers in the market, nor is it going towards players who are already developed or at a certain level of expectation, also economically.
“I would definitely say no because Bruno is a player of a level and a value that is not for us.”
Arsenal know who they want as next manager
Arsenal head of football relations Raul Sanllehi’s first choice to succeed departed head coach Unai Emery is Luis Enrique, according to reports.
The Athletic’s David Ornstein says he has heard that Sanllehi would go for Enrique ahead of anyone else.
“Raul Sanllehi was very keen on Luis Enrique first time round but the illness to his daughter, who sadly passed away, meant he wasn’t even a consideration in 2018 with that situation. He would have been very keen on him,” Ornstein said on The Ornstein and Chapman Podcast.
“Again there were reports that came out of Spain that he had been approached a few weeks ago, very quickly played down.
“But they’re sort of lingering and people I’ve spoken to have said if Raul had his choice of the market, he would pick Luis Enrique.
“But obviously Luis Enrique is now back in the national team job with Spain.”
“But there’s nothing to say about it. I know how it sounds, but I cannot change that.
“There’s nothing to say about it, which can mean there’s absolutely nothing to say about it.
“For us it is always the same. We don’t speak about it but we are pretty much always ready to [buy players] if it will help us.
“If not, then not. We will see. I think the summer window is more difficult because of the different moments when it closes in Europe.
“It only hurts English clubs – we can only buy until a specific moment, other clubs can buy into the season.”
