RomeluLukaku is gunning to break a Manchester United record when they host Leicester City on Saturday.
The Belgium international was a proven goalscorer in the Premier League but naysayers had a field day when he signed for Man United. So far, it has been a very impressive ride as the former Toffees
striker bangs in the goals.
Lukaku has gone the way of Louis Saha, Federico Macheda, Anthony Martial and Zlatan Ibrahimovic by netting in his first two Premier League games for Manchester United. He could go further to become the first to score in three league games for the club with rich history.
Lukaku scored on his debut against West Ham United and he was on target when the Red Devils hammered The Swans 4-0, as their first game. The forward had scored in pre-season games and in the UEFA Super Cup match against Real Madrid, but there were some doubts about the tally he would hit at United this term.
The player has shown so far that he can go beyond the 20 goal haul like he did for Everton last term. Though Ibrahimovic is set to return in the second half of the season, Lukaku remains the star man for now. Continue reading “LUKAKU GUNNING TO BREAK UNITED RECORD”
Manchester United star Adnan Januzaj has finally moved away from Old Trafford after the deal with Real Sociedad was completed.
All recent coaches of United from Sir Alex Ferguson to current manager Jose Mourinho described Januzaj with enviable adjectives but the player is no longer a Red Devils’ man.
The player has joined United as a 16-year old from Anderlecht in 2011. After two year at the club he moved from the reserve side to the senior team after being named Player of the Year.
“He has good balance, good acceleration and he’s a very good technical player,” Ferguson had said. The Scot named him in the 2012/13 season but it was David Moyes that allowed him flourish at the club.
Moyes compared him to other stars that he handed their debuts like Wayne Rooney and Ross Barkley. He claimed Januzaj was “certainly the level of those boys” but that has not proved to be very true. Yet.
When Louis van Gaal took over he signed Angel Di Maria. The Argentine pushed Januzajdwn the pecking order so the youngster was sent out to Germany for development and regular game time. That move did damage to the player’s career as he never started a Bundesliga game. Continue reading “JANUZAJ MOVES TO SOCIEDAD FOR £9M”
Marcus Rashford is set to get a pay rise at Manchester United following his impressive run for the side.
Since former manager Louis van Gaal gave him the chance to play, he has grabbed each opportunity with both hands. He has steadily matured under Coach Jose Mourinho.
The Three Lions star reportedly earns £30,000 weekly but the English media claims he would get an additional £10,000 a week. They say the management at Old Trafford want to raise it after a good run this term. He agreed a deal last year that would tie him until 2021 but the club wants to renew it this summer, where the pay rise and other bonuses would come in.
There is still concern that the money may get into his head so the management is threading carefully. People think he earns significantly higher or that he should re-negotiate this summer but the situation is apparently not so. Continue reading “RASHFORD TO GET PAY RISE AT UNITED”

Yet,Macheda’s decline was also in a quick manner, as he failed to establish himself United’s first team just a few months after scoring that incredible goal.
It is here that the striker regrets making a major mistake, against the advice of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has vowed to protect club youngest goalscorer Ben Woodburn from overhype of the media following his feats.
The youngster broke the club’s record when he scored the second goal in the 2-0 victory over Leeds United in the EFL Cup quarterfinals.
Woodburn, who made his debut for the senior Liverpool squad against Sunderland, is one of the top profiles by the media, forcing fears from Klopp. Whilst Klopp said he was “really happy” with the young lad’s achievement, he expressed his fears about the media.
“The only problem is I‘m afraid about all you in the media. That’s why I’m so quiet. We know how to handle the situation,” the former Dortmund boss said.
Klopp added that the player still had a lot of development ahead of him, and advised that the player keep away from the public no matter how difficult it was. He doused the hype surrounding the player when he said anyone could have scored the goal Woodburn scored.
“I said well done to him afterwards. It was not too difficult. I would have scored too in that situation. We know what Ben is capable of and what he is already able to do,” Klopp added. He also praised other young players that had the chance to play like 18-year old right back Trent Alexander-Arnold and 19-year old Ovie Ejaria.
Whilst young players that started like Woodburn went on to do great things like Michael Owen, James Milner, Wayne Rooney, and Jamie Carragher, others started well but went off the radar. Premier League all-time youngest goalscorer James Vaughan, who achieved the feat whilst in action for Everton at the age of 16 years and 267 days, plays for a League One side after injuries hampered his career. Manchester United teenage sensation Federico Macheda made real impact at age 17 years 226 days but is now begging clubs to take him after numerous loan spells.
With the winter transfer window quickly approaching, managers from around the world are getting ready to upgrade their respective squads and maybe considering what players from their own team could be released as well.
Federico Macheda has been a free agent since August of 2016 and there have been rumors emerging linking the Italian attacker with Napoli but the 25 year old player has recently talked about his current situation and Macheda said that he has not had any contact with Napoli, despite of all the recent reports and rumors that have been flourishing in recent times.
The 25 year old attacker said: “As of today, nobody has contacted me”.
Ever since Macheda’s time at Old Trafford reached it’s end, he has been joining a number of clubs either on permanent deals or on loan deals but in general his career has not lived up to what many people initially expected from the Italian attacker after he had managed to stand out in the youth academy of Manchester United and even getting playing time with the main team of the Premier League club at a very young age. Continue reading “Is Federico Macheda a winter signing target of Napoli?”
Macheda got into fame in 2009 when he scored a last minute winner for Manchester United in a 3-2 victory at home to Aston Villa.
The 25-year old netted three times in 19 appearances before leaving permanently in 2014 for Cardiff City. He netted just eight times in 33 appearances for Cardiff City over two seasons.
The 25-year old lamented that he wasn’t pleased with how things were against his plan in Cardiff, Wales, and after battling with injuries for the last few seasons, he felt the time was right for him to leave Cardiff.
He told Italian outlet, TuttoMercato: “Unfortunately, things didn’t go well. “I had a few physical problems which didn’t allow me to maintain any consistency, and I felt the time was right for me to turn the page.”
Macheda at an earlier time seemed ready to return to his native country, Italy with Pescara, but now wants to remain in England after his proposed move fell through. The Italian featured for Watford’s Under-23 side, scoring a penalty in a 4-2 defeat to Hull City as he bids to win a contract at Vicarage Road.

Former Manchester United striker Federico Macheda has stated that the biggest mistake of his career has been to leave the club on loan to Sampdoria. He believes that the loan move has affected his career negatively.
He said that he was enjoying his football at Manchester United at that time and he was rated as an exciting talent for the future. However, his form will decline when he move to Italy and believes that he should have stayed in England instead. Indeed Federico Macheda will manage to score 2 goals in the first 2 games of his career at Manchester United but will fail to establish himself as an important player in the team.

Cardiff City’s transfer embargo has been lifted making them eligible to sign players this summer.
Former Red Devils
player, Federico Macheda has his future endangered with the lifting of the embargo. He joined Cardiff in 2014 after a long history of long spells in different clubs while still signed to his parent club Manchester United. He failed to make his mark at Cardiff, so he was sent on another loan to Nottingham Forest this year but the club recalled him back.
Cardiff were not able to buy players since January after they breached the Financial Fair Play rules but the Football League made the announcement that the embargo had been removed when the club removed Russell Slade from his position as manager. The club has begun looking at potential summer targets for the coming season, making Macheda a marked man for sale.
