Published

Manchester United vice-chairman Ed Woodward is set to leave at the end of the year, and club legend Sir Alex Ferguson’s role could change as a result.

Since retiring in 2013, Ferguson has acted as a club ambassador and director at Old Trafford, but it has been suggested that some at the club want him to have a larger role in light of Woodward’s departure.

The legendary manager wasn’t consulted before United put themselves in the hat for a new European Super League, with Woodward instead having a big say, even going so far as to leave his role with UEFA to take up a vice-chairman role with the new organisation.

Ferguson voiced his disapproval at the idea, and urged United not to get involved.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s role at Manchester United could change in light of Ed Woodward’s resignation, Sir Alex Ferguson’s role at Manchester United could change in light of Ed Woodward’s resignation.

Gary Neville hopes Man Utd and co. are ‘hit with £100m fine’ to leave Super League And just 48 hours after the launch of the Super League, all Premier League clubs involved had left and Woodward had announced his resignation.

The whirlwind last two days could end up have huge ramifications for Ferguson’s future at the club.

And The Athletic claims some want Ferguson to increase his role at the club in light of Woodward’s departure.

But Woodward’s departure throws a major spanner in the works, even though reports suggest he was already planning to leave at the end of the year anyway.

Woodward had earned nearly £21million during his time as the club’s executive vice-chairman.

Arsenal open to offer for striker,who they could sell to fund move for Chelsea star

Published

Arsenal are open to offers for striker Alexandre Lacazette, who they could sell to fund a move for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, according to the Telegraph.

Lacazette was acquired by Arsenal on the back of a prolific campaign with Lyon, but has never managed more than 14 goals in a single Premier League campaign.

The Frenchman’s total in England’s top tier reads as follows: 128 games played, 50 goals scored. It’s nothing to write home about, if not disgraceful.

Arsenal clearly don’t deem his contributions to be sufficient, though, as the Telegraph report they are open to the idea of selling him this summer.

The Telegraph’s story is centred on Arsenal’s surprise interest in signing Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, who appears to be heading out the exit door.

The belief is that the Gunners would be willing to listen to offers for Lacazette in order to raise funds for Abraham, which would presumably apply for any striker they’re keen on.

With Lacazette out of contract in 2022, this may well be the only opportunity Arsenal will get to recoup a significant amount of the £46.5m (the fee as per the BBC) they paid back in 2017.

Erling Haaland joins Borussia Dortmund training, ignores Chelsea speculation

Published

It’s Wednesday, July 14, 2021. Do you know where your 20-year-old superstar striker is?

Oh, actually, here he is, training with Borussia Dortmund, as one would expect of a player set to stay with the team. No holdout drama here, after all!

And the transfer rumor mill wept…

Day one✔️
Ready for the journey pic.twitter.com/7ZRXxujZO1— Erling Haaland (@ErlingHaaland) July 14, 2021

Haaland had missed the first two days of preseason training, including Dortmund’s first preseason match, but neither the current nor the future BVB sporting directors were worried, and likely with good reason.

The club have maintained all along that they’re not letting the freakishly good striker leave this summer, even if they might get much less in return for him next summer, when his reported €75m release clauses kicks in.

Haaland himself doesn’t appear to be pushing to leave — despite his agent clearly keeping the rumor mill’s wheel turning and churning — and hilariously ignored some journalists this morning, including the always annoying Christian Falk. True.

We asked @ErlingHaaland: „Are you staying at @BVB , Mr. Haaland?” He smiled and said nothing @ChelseaFC @BILD_Sport— Christian Falk (@cfbayern) July 14, 2021

Chelsea agreed transfer fee with Manchester United for James

Chelsea have agreed a transfer fee with Manchester United for England striker Lauren James.

The deal is believed to be a record between two Women’s Super League clubs.

James has already undergone a medical at Chelsea and personal terms are now being discussed.

One of the reasons behind the transfer is James’ desire to move back down south to be closer to her family. Her brother Reece plays for Chelsea’s men’s team.

James joined United from Arsenal in 2017 aged 16, becoming the second-youngest player in the side’s history.

She made an instant impact, scoring 14 goals as they won promotion from the Championship at the first attempt.

James also scored United’s first Women’s Super League goal, putting them on course to a 2-0 win over Liverpool in September 2019.

She helped secure a fourth-place finish in last season’s Women’s Super League, 10 points behind champions Chelsea.

James has represented England at U17 and U19 level and was called into a senior training camp in November.
