James Maddison to snub Man Utd?

James Maddison is considering turning down Manchester United’s strong interest by signing a new contract with Leicester.

Maddison has been on United’s radar since June and their interest intensified this season as he has already contributed six goals and two assists for the Foxes.

According to Manchester Evening News, however, the midfielder is keen on extending his deal at King Power Stadium, which runs until 2023, even though he is a boyhood Red Devils fan.

Sources close to the England international claim a new contract is not close to being agreed and a decision may not be taken until the end of the season.

United will continue to track him and are confident that they will be able to land him in the near future as part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad rebuild.

Bruno Fernandes to Man Utd bargain

Manchester United could sign Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes on the cheap.

That’s according to Portuguese publication O Jogo, who claim Sporting are in financial trouble and desperate to raise funds.

Fernandes, who was linked with United, Real Madrid and Tottenham this summer, has continued his tremendous form this season – netting nine goals and providing six assists in 17 appearances.

Tottenham backed to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Tottenham have been urged to sign veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to boost their plight of winning silverware this season.

Danny Mills told Football Insider: “How about Zlatan to Tottenham? Who’s the backup striker to Harry Kane? They haven’t got one.

“He’s unattached, he’s left the MLS, he’s a free agent and as ludicrous as it sounds, think of the experience that he’s got.

“Everybody talks about when he went to Manchester United, what he added to the dressing room, the work ethic that he’s got.

“I’m not saying he’s going to go in and replace Harry Kane, but he would be one hell of an option as almost a player-coach role type scenario.

“He’s obviously revered all over the world, I think he’s got enough confidence to pull it off.

“From Tottenham’s point of view he’s a marketing dream, he’s going to sell a lot of shirts very, very quickly, he loves Mourinho to bits.

“You just start to think, is it a possibility to bring a player like that in to give them a bit of a boost?”

Mauricio Pochettino to Arsenal backed

Arsenal need to seriously consider firing Unai Emery and replacing him with Mauricio Pochettino, Martin Keown claims.

“There’s no need to panic at Arsenal, we are getting close to panic by the way, because we’re not having the best of seasons, but the powers that be at the top of the club should be seriously considering Pochettino,” he said.

“I have a lot of admiration for what he did at Tottenham, the way he nurtured those young players and he didn’t spend a great deal of money.

“I don’t think Tottenham spent enough.

“I know the poor record he has recently, I know it all but I still would have given him another chance. I don’t like the way Tottenham have done it.

“There will be a lot of chairmen looking at him now.

“Manchester United wanted him this time last year. I think Arsenal would have to be interested if they want to take a step forward.”
