The London Gunners are about to tie the Gabon striker with a new contract with attractive terms.
The 2019/20 season has ended relatively successfully with Arsenal winning the FA Cup. In the final against Chelsea, The Gunner was successfully upstream thanks to the excellence of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Accordingly, the 31-year-old striker scored both goals for the North London club. After the match, the former Borussia Dortmund star enthusiastically celebrated with his teammates, accompanied by a bright smile. In the past few days, the future of striker born in 1989 is a problem that makes the Gunner headache. The contract between the two parties is only valid until June 2021. However, Arsenal’s victory in the FA Cup and a ticket to attend the Europa League next season made the negotiations go smoothly.
According to the Daily Mail, the Gunners will provide Aubameyang with a new 3-year contract, with a salary of £ 250,000 / week, higher than the current £ 180,000 / week he is currently enjoying. However, the new deal has yet to bring the highest-earning Arsenal striker Gabon, because he is still inferior to the leader Mesut Ozil – receiving £ 350,000 a week.
Since arriving in the Premier League, Aubameyang has shown impressive goalscoring style. The 31-year-old striker contributed 68 goals after 85 matches in the highest league in England. The former Dortmund star was the hero who scored twice against Chelsea to help Arsenal upstream to win the FA Cup.
Despite winning 2-0 against Wolves, Chelsea still ranked 4th in the final, as United also won all 3 points in the match at the same time. Welcoming Wolves at home, Chelsea only needs to keep 1 point to be in the Top 4. However, the defense has never been the strength of Frank Lampard’s students. On the other side of the battle line, “Wolves” need 3 points to secure the ticket to the Europa League. The first few minutes are exactly the same as the set out of the scenarios. Chelsea actively took the ball, stretched the Wolves squad and waited for space to throw a “fist”. However, this way of playing modestly creates opportunities for “Wolves” to accelerate. Although the ball was held less, for most of the first half, Wolves was the team that held many dangerous opportunities. Wingers like Matt Doherty and Pedro Neto know how to carve into the left corridor of Chelsea. The void of the center-back three, plus the rising interest of Marcos Alonso always makes the Blues open. Without the sanity of Zouma and goalkeeper Caballero, the home team would most likely have conceded a goal.
When the first half seemed to end with a goalless draw, Chelsea suddenly pushed up the squad and took full advantage of two braking situations in stoppage time. Mason Mount shines with 1 goal and 1 assist to help the home team solve the match. After a magnificent free kick in the 45 + 2 minute to open the score 1-0, the 21-year-old midfielder continued to impress with a release of the ball just so that Olivier Giroud escaped to score the second goal doubled the gap.
Receiving a “painful blow” just before the break, Wolves had no other way to raise the attack in the second half. Coach Nuno Santo threw all the best cards on the bench into the field. Adama Traore, Daniel Podence, and Joao Moutinho are all significant aid to the offensive. The Chelsea defense relies on goalkeeper Caballero, while the attack is driven by the dynamism of Mason Mount. The duo played well to help the Blues operate smoothly and control the second half of the match well. Unfortunately, the home team could not score more goals despite launching Abraham, Pedro, and Ross Barkley into the field in the last minutes of the match.
Although he did not score, Son Heung-min also left a mark in Tottenham’s 3-star victory against Leicester City in the 37 Premier League round. The 27-year-old striker was the one who launched the nasty goal to make the ball beat the opponent defender’s foot, bringing the score to Spurs.
Immediately after the match, Son was honored by Tottenham with all 4 individual titles including Spurs Player of the Season, Spurs’s best goal of the season, the best player selected by the youth team, and Spurs’ best player of the season according to NHM polls worldwide.
This is the first time an Asian player has done this not only at Tottenham but also in the history of the Premier League. With 18 goals and 11 assists, “Sonny” deserves this award from the host team. However, this was an unsuccessful season for the Tottenham Hotspur team. In addition to being eliminated early by Leipzig in the round of 16 of the Champions League, Mourinho’s army also has no chance to win tickets to the Champions League next season.
MU has just won a feat of winning 4 consecutive matches in the Premier League with 3 or more goals, and Mason Greenwood has a very prominent participation in this series of results.
Specifically, Greenwood scored 4 goals in the last 3 matches, against Brighton, Bournemouth and Aston Villa. Not appearing much in the early stages of the season, but entering the sprint race after Covid-19, Greenwood had more frequency of competition, and he quickly asserted his value. A series of milestones associated with teenage players are set. Greenwood became the first 18-year-old player to score three consecutive Premier League matches in the 21st century. After the Aston Villa victory, Greenwood went down in history as the second young MU player to score three consecutive matches in England’s highest football tournament in 62 years. Mason conquered this miraculous milestone at the age of 18 and 282 days. The youngest was Alex Dawson, April 1958 – when he was 18 and 54 days old. Greenwood scored 9 goals in the Premier League 2019-20, after 28 finishes, with 18 accuracy. Thus, the conversion rate of his shots into goals is 32.1%.
This rate is more than double the MU average in the Premier League. The Reds succeed with 15.5% of finishes. Details are 380 shots, 200 shots on target, and 59 goals. Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford – who have 15 goals in the Premier League – are not as effective as Greenwood, 28.8% and 21.7%, respectively.
Therefore, while helping Greenwood develop, coach Solskjaer needs to help the young brother maintain his feet on the ground away from the glamor and the media attached. More than anyone else, it is Mason who has to regulate and control himself. Over the years, MU and European football have a lot of talent to appear. But it is rare for adults to have many different factors. “Mason must control his own life, the right activities to develop potential,” coach Solskjaer warned. Greenwood – who is aiming to score the fourth match in a row – needs to be alert to take control of his path.
Before Liverpool, Klopp was once in a similar situation after bringing Dortmund to the 2010/11 Bundesliga championship. It is an amazing achievement for the Ruhr team because, in 2004, they were still on the verge of bankruptcy. However, when Klopp told Dortmund players this summer the team started their journey of defending the title, there were no psychologically deceptive speeches to promote their determination to defend the title. “We don’t expect to be interested again because there is no chance, because the opponent is giant Bayern Munich and normally, if you defeat them, they will attack back with what they have.” , Klopp recalled. “So we didn’t do anything out of the ordinary that summer. We lost Nuri Sahin and brought back Ilkay Guendogan, which is obviously not a bad replacement. What we do is train hard. only and think positively about the future, “continued the German strategist. Dortmund started the journey to protect the throne not smoothly. This team lost 3 of the first 6 matches under the strategist’s reign. “I’m pretty sure we’re only seventh in the rankings. The media in Germany has criticized us in every way we can. Whichever we lose focus. We don’t have enough ambition. are still celebrating etc. “, he said. “After that, we beat Mainz 05 with a score of 2-1, the victory was really shocking, like sewing a needle with a 50m shot. And the whole team knew that it was time for us to stand up. Because Our head didn’t play badly, but the results were not good. That’s what happens in football, “Klopp continued.
“From that moment, Dortmund broke all records in Germany: 81 points, not losing in 23 matches or the like”. In fact, Dortmund did not lose 28 matches in all competitions and won the Bundesliga double and the National Cup.
“We did it because we were still great,” Klopp recalls. : And we had the chance a year later (to reach the Champions League final and lost to Bayern Munich) but things were very different. “ “So we don’t have to change. The good things you have to maintain and improve the bad. And that’s what we have to do. It doesn’t matter what we won last season, The key is what we can look forward to, “emphasized the German strategist. “We have never felt we have to win the Bundesliga to prove to the world that we are still at the top, because there is always competition and other teams are getting better and better. The 2011/12 awards are great, but there are times when everyone still criticizes us. “ “What I have learned here is that I am prepared for everything you say about us if next season does not go as expected. But as long as I see in my eyes the readiness of my ears, it will be. never affect what we do “.
And it seems that is the factor to wait for the rise of Liverpool after a humiliating defeat of 0-4 against Man City. Like previous Dortmund players, Klopp looked into the eyes of his pupils at Liverpool to be reassured. “These guys are special characters and I never even doubted,” Klopp said. “I absolutely trust them. They are not perfect and make many mistakes but eventually know how to stand up. Because I know them well, they are always mature, always responding, always understanding. They are thoughtful and always thinking. about the way we go “
Jurgen Klopp led Liverpool in October 2015 to replace the dismissed Brendan Rodgers. At that time, this was still a club in turmoil. Klopp inherited an unappreciated squad but gradually adopted his unique philosophy.
Gradually, the German coach helped Liverpool improve and win the hearts of the fans. Five years on, The Kop under Klopp won the Champions League and the latest the Premier League, bringing together a world-class squad. Liverpool set the record for winning the highest league title in England at the earliest. They were crowned early before 7 rounds when Man City was 2nd to 23 points after 31 rounds.
Pep Guardiola won with City four more titles than Klopp in less than a year. But the Spaniard has created more shopping opportunities in the past.
Hamann judged Klopp’s achievements to be incomparable by the massive reconstruction he had at Liverpool. Now the 53-year-old is a leading figure in his job. Hamann told The Mirror: “Right now, Klopp has to be recognized as the best coach in football. Pep Guardiola is a special coach, but when he came to City he took over a club that won the titles. ” “Of course, what Guardiola has done at Man City in the last three seasons has to be acknowledged, but Klopp has taken over a club that has only won one League Cup in 10 years. He has to build a team almost from scratch. “ “That is why Klopp’s achievement is incomparable. He was the first Liverpool manager to win the Premier League and the first coach to win it. When you compare the squad he inherited, he almost completely changed with a net spending of about £ 50 million. ” “When you look at the resources that other coaches already have, it makes Klopp’s achievement even more spectacular. He has incredible strikers with Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino. ” “He developed the best two full-backs in the world, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson. Buying Virgil Van Dijk is a bargain even at £ 75 million because Liverpool’s problems over the past 30 years are due to defensive loopholes. ” “A great team has to avoid two things. The first is complacency because even when leading with 25 points more than the rest, it never feels easy. The second is the fighting spirit and the current Liverpool never gives up. ” “It all comes from the work of Klopp. He built a solidarity team that never gave up. ”
Man United faced many difficulties before Tottenham when they were soon ahead of their opponents in the first half. Only when Bruno Fernandes successfully completed the 11m kick, the Red Devils won Manchester a valuable point. Unitedinfocus newspaper pointed out the best 3 United players in this match
Fernandes has shown a leading role, even when United are not playing well. The Portuguese midfielder had 3 shots on target and confidently beat Hugo Lloris on the 11m mark, scoring an equalizer for Man United.
The combination of Fernandes and Pogba in the second half is also very promising. Ever since Fernandes arrived at Old Trafford in January, United are still unbeaten.
There is no doubt about Pogba’s talent and class. He was the man who created the turning point that changed the way Manchester United played when it was launched. The presence of Pogba helps United play more smoothly. It was Pogba who brought the 11m result for Man United with a clever and technical move. No exaggeration to identify, Pogba is the difference. The midfielder also had a successful tackling phase and blocked the opponent’s shot twice. The manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should have launched Pogba earlier.
McTominay at the beginning was a bit off, but as the game progressed, this young talent showed more certainty in the game. When pulled back to center-back position, McTominay almost made Harry Kane not have much room to score. McTominay has 2 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 4 successful tackles.
Solskjaer was the one who was chosen by MU to replace Mourinho in December 2018. It took nearly a year later for the Portuguese strategist to find a new port, which is Tottenham.
MU under the former player Soskjaer has gone through ups and downs but gradually built the Red Devils back to an attacking style and revolves around young, enthusiastic people. That’s why Solskjaer receives more support every time. Meanwhile, Mourinho at Tottenham is in an unfavorable position – ranked 8th in the Premier League after 29 rounds and 4 points behind MU. If MU aims to qualify for the Champions League next season after ranking 5th, 3 points behind Chelsea, Tottenham is probably the Europa League after reaching the Champions League final last season. But the match against Tottenham vs MU was very much waiting, because Mourinho met his former team that fired him, and Solskjaer expected the Red Devils to play jubilantly in the ‘start over’ season – like crushing troops. Chelsea 4-0.
In the first leg at Old Trafford, MU beat Tottenham’s Mourinho 2-1. Whether Mourinho and his students can ‘claim debt’ or not, they still have to wait, but according to The Athletic newspaper, Mourinho took advantage of it… slander Solskjaer before the game. According to this source, Mourinho informed people that the job at MU might be not suitable for Solskjaer, leaving the former Red Devils player overwhelmed when sitting on the ‘hot seat’ at Old Trafford.
MU is planning to recruit Donny Van de Beek, the player is said to have reached an agreement to move to Real Madrid with a £ 49 million contract. And according to Executive Vice President Ed Woodward, MU only spent about 36 million pounds This agreement took place before the Covid-19 epidemic. For now, due to the financial impact, Real Madrid seems hesitant to recruit Van de Beek. Taking advantage of that opportunity, MU is planning to bring the 23-year-old midfielder to Old Trafford. This is the player they pursued last summer, but failed. The good relationship between Executive Vice President Ed Woodward and sporting director Edwin van der Sar could make this deal more likely to happen. For his part, Van de Beek was quite excited about the opportunity to play in the English Premier League.
Van de Beek grew up from the Ajax youth team and scored 38 goals in the last 3 seasons. In the 2018-19 season, he joined Frenkie De Jong, Matthijs De Ligt and Hakim Ziyech to help Ajax play well in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Those three names have all left Ajax, and Van de Beek is expected to follow in his footsteps.
Despite extending Odion Ighalo’s loan until January 2021, MU has not given up the intention of recruiting a new striker. And according to the Mirror, they will probably recruit Raul Jimenez – Wolves’ main striker this summer.
This season, Raul Jimenez continues to show impressive form with 22 goals and 10 assists after 44 games. He is a striker model (1m90), rich in strength, and is considered the ideal replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who moved to Inter Milan. Currently, Real Madrid is also interested in a 29-year-old Mexican striker. He also has a 3-year contract with Wolves. Last April, Wolves bought Raul Jimenez from Benfica for £ 30 million – a record in club history. Perhaps, they would demand double the number, if Jimenez were to leave
MU transfer: MU seems to have failed to expand the loan contract with striker Odion Ighalo of Shanghai Shenhua.
Odion Ighalo’s loan contract with MU is valid until May 31, yesterday. MU really wants to extend this contract until the end of the season but the management club Shanghai Shenhua has firmly called the Nigerian player back. “Red Devil” has made great efforts to negotiate to get satisfactory results. But yesterday passed without any notice regarding the extension with Ighalo.
According to the Daily Mail, this means that MU has not been able to reach an agreement with Shanghai Shenhua on Ighalo’s case. Earlier, some sources said that MU even wanted to borrow Ighalo until January 2021. However, it seems that this will not happen.
Ighalo initially joined Solskjaer’s army with the purpose of short-term replacement for the injured striker Marcus Rashford. He was considered a “fire” when the club failed to sign Norwegian star Erling Haaland.
However, the 30-year-old had a convincing performance and scored 4 goals after 8 appearances for MU before the Premier League was suspended because of Covid-19. His memorable goals in MU shirt include a stunning volley against LASK Linz in the Europa League as well as a double against Derby in the FA Cup, thereby helping “Reds” into the quarterfinals. Ighalo’s current contract with Shanghai Shenhua will expire in December 2022, but the Chinese club is expected to keep him until 2024. Sky Sports sources added that Shanghai Shenhua initially only accepted to sell Ighalo to MU but did not want to extend the current loan agreement. The team can now allow Ighalo to extend his time at Old Trafford provided he signs a new two-year deal.
