MARCUS THURAM BEING EYED BY TOTTENHAM, ARSENAL, AND CHELSEA

Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are likely to be alerted to the prospect of signing Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram this summer at a bargain fee. The three clubs have all held an interest in the Frenchman at some stage in recent transfer windows, and with his contract running down, he may finally be permitted to move on in the coming months.

 

As per The Athletic, as Thuram is approaching the final 12 months of his contract, the Bundesliga outfit will try to sell him in the next window for a fee of £10-15 million, rather than lose him on a free transfer in 2023.

Will PUMA Make More In-Roads With Premier League

Will PUMA Make More In-Roads With Premier League

PUMA and soccer have gone hand in (goalie) glove for decades. Go to any amateur match, and you’ll see plenty players sporting their KING range. Originally released in 1970, and given instant icon status by Pelé wearing them in that year’s FIFA World Cup Finals in Mexico, the KING has adorned the feet of arguably the top three to ever play the game – the aforementioned Edson Arantes do Nascimento, Diego Maradona and Johan Cruyff.

As a global brand, PUMA have footholds in many leagues. They pulled a massive coup in signing Brazil and Paris St Germain star Neymar Jr to wear his own signature KING Platinum. Would it make sense for them to target the English Premier League for new ambassadors?

                        MAN UNITED REPORTEDLY SUBMIT FIRST BID FOR DEFENDER

Manchester United defender and captain Harry Maguire could be living his final few months as a Red Devil if reports are to be believed. According to reports from various sources, the England international central defender is living a borrowed time at Old Trafford and could be replaced this summer as he continues to come under huge criticism from fans and former players for his poor performances in a United shirt so far.


According to some other reports, Borussia Dortmund star Manuel Akanji has an offer from Manchester United on the table. The 26-year-old has been tipped to move to Old Trafford amid Harry Maguire’s struggles at the back this term. And any deal that would see him leave Dortmund for the Premier League would, potentially, spell trouble for Maguire and his prospects of staying in the team.
