    Sterling ‘should avoid Chelsea move’

    David James says Raheem Sterling would be better off staying at Manchester City rather than joining Chelsea.

    England winger Sterling has been linked with a move to the Blues or Real Madrid.

    Former Three Lions No 1 James, 51, told GGRecon: “[He should] stay at City!

    “It is a testament to how well Raheem Sterling has done that he has been linked to two massive European champions.

    “You do question – given how soon the World Cup is, and what can happen with a move with Manchester to London for example – whether that adjustment could affect form.”

    Schick 'good Mane replacement option'

    Former Liverpool keeper David James says Bayer Leverkusen's Patrik Schick would be an ideal replacement for Sadio Mane at Anfield.

    Kop striker Mane has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich this summer.

    Ex-England No 1 James, 51, told GGRecon: "If Mane’s going then they have to replace him.

    "You’ve got Patrik Shick, who finished second to Robert Lewandowski in the Bundesliga goal standings.

    "He’s a young player who’s got plenty of experience, so he could be an option for Liverpool."

    Transfer round-up

    Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba are eying Italian reunions.

    Chelsea striker Lukaku is tipped for an Inter Milan return, even on loan, just a year after the Blues re-signed him for £97.5million.

    And after Manchester United confirmed Pogba will exit on a free transfer, Juve emerged as favourites to recapture him ahead of PSG.

    Jesse Lingard is another Red Devil on the move – with several more stars likely to follow.

    But United have opened talks on a £50milion deal for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

    Barca would be happy to offload the Holland ace to raise transfer funds – but he insists he's happy at his dream club.

    Wolves have lined up Sporting Lisbon duo Matheus Nunes and Joao Palhinha — in case they are forced to sell £60m United target Ruben Neves.

    Lastly, Chelsea are in pole position ahead of Arsenal for Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde.

    Wolves ‘want £60m for Neves’

    Wolves want Sporting Lisbon duo Matheus Nunes and Joao Palhinha — if £60million Manchester United target Ruben Neves is sold this summer.

    Barcelona also want ex-Porto midfielder, Neves, 25.

    Wolves have held initial talks over deals for Neves’ Portugal team-mates Palhinha, 26, and Nunes, 23.

    Jones and Henderson could join Utd 'exodus'

    Paul Pogba will be Manchester United’s third big-name exit on a free transfer – and there could be at least five more significant departures.

    Edinson Cavani and Nemanja Matic have already gone, with Jesse Lingard to follow.

    Centre-back Phil Jones looks the most vulnerable of the rest, while second-choice keeper Dean Henderson is tipped for at least a loan move.

    Spanish playmaker Juan Mata, 34, could yet win another year’s contract.

    But frontrunners Anthony Martial – who finished the season on loan to Sevilla and Marcus Rashford – floundered when trying to impress interim chief Ralf Rangnick.

    Memphis delay

    Barcelona have reportedly warned Arsenal they are unwilling to sell Memphis Depay this summer unless they find a replacement.

    Sport claims the Gunners are eager to snap up Barca’s Dutch forward after returning to the Europa League.

    But the Spaniards will not part ways with Depay unless they can find a suitable attacker to fill his shoes.

    Depay, 28, has just one year left on his Nou Camp deal despite only joining Barcelona from Lyon last June.

    And Mikel Arteta reckons he can land a real bargain for Arsenal’s attack in the upcoming transfer window, allowing the club to focus the majority of their resources elsewhere.

    Depay is thought to be keen on a Premier League return despite his horror career at Manchester United, where he scored just seven times in 53 games.

    But the Dutch international rebuilt his career at Lyon with 76 goals in 178 outings.

    And Depay’s first season at Barcelona, having joined a free transfer in 2021, yielded 13 goals in 38 appearances.

    Reece battles Saka and Emile for PFA gong

    THE PFA Young Player of the Year shortlist has been announced with a number of top Premier League stars nominated.

    Chelsea‘s Reece James will be rivalled by fellow England international and Premier League winner Phil Foden.

    Arsenal duo Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe have also been nominated.

    On-loan Chelsea star Conor Gallagher has been recognised, as has Aston Villa‘s Jacob Ramsey.

    Foden is the frontrunner, having picked up his fourth Prem crown.

    The 22-year-old made 28 Prem appearances this term, scoring nine and assisting five. Across all competitions, Foden reached double figures in both goals and assists.

    Should Foden win the award again, he will join Dele Alli in being one of only five players to have won the award in consecutive seasons. Ryan Giggs did it at United in 1993, Robbie Fowler in 1996 and Wayne Rooney a decade later.

    Deal Beale in at QPR

    QPR have appointed Michael Beale as their new head coach on a three-year deal.

    Beale, 41, quit as Steven Gerrard’s assistant at Aston Villa to take up his first managerial role at the Championship club.

    He said: “I have been looking for the right opportunity and I think I have that — the right club, the right people, the right ambition.

    “I’m a London boy and know everything this club stands for. This is a wonderful opportunity.”

    Beale succeeds Mark Warburton, who left at the end of the season, in the Hoops hotseat.

    He added: “I’ve been left a solid platform by Mark Warburton, which enables me to kick on.”

    Big Hag-gle to make Frenkie welcome

    New Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is determined to make Barcelona hero Frenkie De Jong welcome.

    But the Dutch midfielder may need more persuading to leave than Barca do to let him go.

    The financially-crippled Spanish club need to cut costs and manager Xavi is understood to be prepared to let him leave.

    Yet De Jong, 25, said this week he still believes he is at his “dream” club and wants to stay.

    Ten Hag hopes he can convince him to change his mind, with Barca wanting the £65.4m they paid Ajax in 2019 — though United believe they can cut that fee significantly.

    Utd open talks with Barca on £50m De Jong deal

    Manchester United have opened talks with Barcelona in a £50million bid for Frenkie de Jong — as they issued a gushing farewell to £200m flop Paul Pogba, writes KEN LAWRENCE.

    Pogba departs Old Trafford as one of the costliest under-achievers in the club’s history.

    Once wages and bonuses are added to his £89m club-record fee, United will have forked out more than £200m on Pogba at a cost of over £800,000 a game.

    The 29-year-old is now expected to return to Juventus on a free transfer, though Paris Saint-Germain have shown an interest.

    He joined Jesse Lingard in being confirmed as departing Old Trafford.

    PFA shortlist revealed

    Manchester United legend Cristiano Ronaldo has received a shock nomination for the PFA Player of the Year award.

    But there is no room for Tottenham ace Son Heung-Min, despite the South Korean finishing as joint-top scorer this season.

    Elsewhere, Spurs striker Harry Kane and Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne are also in the mix.

    But it’s Liverpool who lead the way with three nominations in Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Virgil van Dijk.

    Ronaldo endured a mixed first campaign upon his return to Man United despite scoring 18 Premier League goals.

    The Portuguese legend was criticised for failing to adapt to the team’s tactics.

    Rashford backed to stay

    Marcus Rashford is tipped to stay at Manchester United.

    The £63million-rated England striker, 24, only started six Premier League matches in 2022.

    He's denied being frustrated at his childhood club.

    But speculation has grown over his limited opportunities and erratic performances.

    Now, though, journalist Jacque Talbot predicts Rashford will stay to start afresh under new manage Erik ten Hag.

    Ruben choose day

    Lazio could duel Manchester United for Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

    The ten-cap England star, 26, has revived his Blues’ career this season under Thomas Tuchel.

    But new United boss Erik ten Hag has been linked with a move.

    And  Italian outlet Gazzetta Dello Sport says ex-Blues’ chief Maurizio Sarri is ready to rev up his interest in a reunion with Loftus-Cheek, who might cost at least £17million.

    Forest get the Gold shoulder

    Premier League new-boys Nottingham Forest have been snubbed by Rangers centre-back Connor Goldson.

    The former Brighton defender was out of contract but has opted to sign a new deal with the Scottish giants.

    Wolves-born Goldson, 29, said: “I’ve got used to winning games most weeks and I love that feeling. I want to keep on winning.”

    Chelsea lead Kounde hunt

    Chelsea head Arsenal and other European giants in the hunt for Jules Kounde, Spanish outlet Sport claim.

    Barcelona could take centre-backs Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen from the Blues – and perhaps even wide defenders Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta.

    So backline reinforcements will be central to Chelsea chief Thomas Tuchel's summer plans.

    And Sport suggest the Blues are 'working' on a deal for Sevilla's France star Kounde, 23.

    Arsenal are still thought to be holding back on a bid for Leicester lynchpin Youri Tielemans.

    Prem rivals, including at times Manchester United and Liverpool,have been linked with the Belgium midfielder.

    Villa beat Toon to £26m Carlos

    Aston Villa have completed the £26million signing of Sevilla Diego Carlos.

    The Brazilian, 29, was a January transfer target for Newcastle.

    But Steven Gerrard has beaten Eddie Howe to the punch as he gets his transfer dealings done nice and early ahead of the 2022-23 season.

    Carlos – who will rake in £100,000 a week at Villa Park – becomes the club's THIRD signing following the end of last season.

    The defender joins Boubacar Kamara at Aston Villa, with Philippe Coutinho's loan deal from Barcelona made permanent.

    Carlos told Villa's official website: "I am really happy because the Premier League is one of the best competitions.

    "I always want to do the best for the club and the shirt I'm wearing.

    "Even now I can't believe I'm here because it's a dream to compete in the Premier League.

    "And now I have a very clear opportunity, I hope to give it 100 per cent my best, and to be able to play to the best of my ability."

    Torres still on Utd list

    Villarreal centre-back Pau Torres is rated a back-up option if Manchester United miss out on Braga's David Carmo.

    The Yellow Submarine also made the Champions League semis this term with Torres ever-present.

    Utd 'in Carmo talks' in case Timber move collapses

    Manchester United have reportedly held talks over Braga centre-back David Carmo in case a deal for Justin Timber collapses.

    The Red Devils are in the market for a new defender with new boss Erik ten Hag hoping to bring Timber with him from Ajax.

    But in case a deal with Timber cannot be struck, United have held talks with 22-year-old Carmo, according to the Daily Mail.

    Carmo was a transfer target for Liverpool last season and nearly made the switch to Anfield but the deal collapsed.

    The centre-back helped Braga to a fourth-placed finish, qualifying for next season's Europa League.

    His fine form has earned Carmo a call-up to Portugal's squad for their June Nations League fixtures.
