CHELSEA AGREE POGBA Charge
Dearie me, items are beginning to get extremely silly certainly. Not just do The Sun claim on Saturday that Manchester United are creating enquiries about Neymar, however they also report that Chelsea have agreed a ￡69m fee with Juventus for Paul Pogba.
The Sun say that Pogba will now go over personal terms ahead of a move, which is essentially them putting their necks around the line with this a single. What occurs if it turns out to be balderdash?
Given that Kevin de Bruyne is moving for any charge apparently close to ￡50m, you may knock us down with a feather if Juventus agree to sell Pogba for that fee this summer season. He may very well be the most beneficial player on the planet in three years, and Juve will want a charge to reflect that.
Nevertheless, if it does occur then The Sun got themselves a whopping exclusive that no other paper had. Hmmm.
ALLARDYCE IN AT SUNDERLAND
With Sunderland’s season already feeling like a further sorry mess, it appears that the club may be preparing to make a managerial modify. It turns out appointing a manager on a one-year deal just after he rejected the offer at first just before being eventually persuaded is not the greatest foundation for long-term sustainability. Who knew?
The manager Sunderland will turn to is Sam Allardyce, precisely the name all of us believed they would appoint in the summer. Huge Sam has presumably enjoyed his jaunt in Spain over the summer season and is ready to acquire back to keeping sides in the Premier League even though playing unattractive football. That’s precisely what Sunderland require at this time.
The Every day Mirror report that there is a suspicion inside Sunderland that Dick Advocaat will stroll away in the club need to this rotten start off continue and he’s prevented from bringing in players.
PATO COMING TO ENGLAND?
Just for a minute, can all of us pretend that it is 2010 and get extremely excited that Alexandre Pato could be coming to the Premier League? We are able to? Oh superior.
ESPN are reporting that Stoke and Sunderland are both thinking about the former AC Milan forward, now playing for Sao Paulo on loan from Corinthians. He’s nonetheless only 25, which indicates he may well have found some sort of time-bending vortex.
Pato has fundamentally had a rotten time of it considering that bursting onto the scene with Milan after moving from Internacional. He has scored 18 goals in 35 games for Sao Paulo this year, top to these rumours of English interest.
We’re going to become cynical and recommend that this sounds like an agent trying to get his client a piece of that sweet Premier League funds pie.
