Perisic Proved Why He Could be the Right Man for Manchester United

Perisic Proved Why He Could be the Right Man for Manchester United

So, the World Cup is over. Given the utter pointlessness of a fixture between the two losing semi-finalists, it is worth revisiting the football match that actually mattered - where national pride was on the line - and so was the opportunity to fight for the ultimate glory. In the end, it was Croatia who - after trailing, courtesy of a stupendous free-kick five minutes into the match, from Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kieran Trippier - then regrouped, to find the …
It's time for Luke Shaw to justify Mourinho's trust in him

It's time for Luke Shaw to justify Mourinho's trust in him

Manchester United are off to a flyer this season - with two 4-0 wins on the spin in the opening two games. The squad has got the strength in depth - in most areas of the pitch and United are primed to push hard for their first league title in five years in Mourinho's historically successful second season at a new club. Yet, there always is room for improvement and what Manchester United are most certainly no exception to the …
May the Fors be with Mourinho?

May the Fors be with Mourinho?

Once the news of Manchester United allegedly contacting the agent of RB Leipzig midfielder Emil Forsberg were perpetrated by Calciomercato.it, I switched my focus to two very specific questions which I needed answers to - and one of them is not how good the player is/has been at his previous club or whether he could fit in at Manchester United because that could wait until the information is more concrete - it's rather wet cement at this stage. Why Emil …

Mourinho, Martial and an unbeaten United in pre-season

Two of the biggest and most popular football clubs in the world - Real Madrid and Manchester United, engaged in a friendly bout in the States as a dress rehearsal for the European Super Cup encounter which is scheduled to take place in two weeks for the first piece of silverware of the season. The game ended 1-1 and the Reds somehow stumbled on to a win - through a frankly, comical penalty shootout - where seven out of ten …

Manchester United cannot afford to sell Darmian this Summer

The pre-season friendlies have well and truly begun and naturally, social media is littered with hot takes and tactical analyses of games that are played for the sole purpose of integrating new signings into the first team and building fitness ahead of the new season. Amidst the bedlam, United are still negotiating deals, the nature of some - unclear, yet others - pretty obvious, at this point in time. The Red Devils are reported to be in advanced talks to finally …

Profiling Manchester United and Chelsea target Ivan Perisic

Ivan Perisic is a player that looks set for a Premier League move, after being linked with both Manchester United and Chelsea in recent days. A move to Old Trafford is rumoured to be more likely, after Sky Sports reported that Jose Mourinho's side were in talks with Inter Milan over the Croatian. However, they will face competition for his signature from rivals Chelsea. It could take a fee as high as £36 million to convince the Serie A club …
Could Perisic Improve Manchester United?

Could Perisic Improve Manchester United?

One of the few things that is universally accepted by football fans from all backgrounds is the fact that international breaks are painfully boring. And if there is anything that makes them even more tedious to follow than the actual football itself, then it is the truck load of transfer rumours that get discussed across the media to keep the plate spinning. Recently, one of those rumors saw Manchester United linked with a summer transfer of Croatian Attacking Midfielder Ivan Perisic, …
Five Euro 2016 Players Premier League Clubs Should Target

Five Euro 2016 Players Premier League Clubs Should Target

International tournaments are a great shop window and players realise that. Although it is important not to place too much stock into performances at tournaments like Euro 2016, they can provide the final details that clubs need to know about targets. They are great for showing how players deal with big matches especially. This tournament hasn't been the best for free-flowing football, instead providing some excellent tactical battles. The following five players have impressed me and I feel they would …
