Joe Hart talk

Leeds will not make an approach for Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart.

The Championship leaders have been linked with various goalkeeper’s amid Kiko Casilla’s eight-match suspension for racially abusing Charlton’s Johnathan Leko.

But Kevin Phillips doesn’t see Hart arriving at Elland Road.

“I do not think Bielsa would go for Joe Hart,” he told Football Insider. “I think he will take a similar stance to Pep Guardiola.

“Joe has been a wonderful goalkeeper but Bielsa is looking for someone who has a left foot, right foot and can drill it to the full-backs and the wingers. So I do not expect him to go down that route.”

Odion Ighalo risk

Manchester United loanee Odion Ighalo risks losing a lucrative contract offer to remain at Old Trafford for the remainder of the 2019/2020 campaign.

That’s according to the Daily Star, who claim the Nigeria international could miss out on a new £75million deal with Shanghai Shenhua.

Chinese clubs are busy preparing for the new season that begins next month and Ighalo should be lining up when it kicks off with his loan deal with United set to expire this weekend.

Ighalo wants to extend his loan but Shenhua will reportedly review the terms of his new contract if he fails to return.

Jorginho interest

Two European giants are interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Jorginho.

That’s according to the player’s agent Joao Santos, who says both have made contact to discuss the Italy midfielder’s availability.

Juventus have frequently been linked with the former Napoli star with Maurizio Sarri at the helm, but Santos stressed that the two interested parties are from outside of Serie A.

“If you ask me if Sarri likes Jorginho, I’d say ‘yes’ due to their history,” Santos told Radio Musica Television. “I can’t say anything about the transfer market as I’m not in touch with anyone right now.

“Jorginho still has three years left on his contract and is doing well at Chelsea, but if a big enough offer comes in then a deal could go through. In this sense, two top European clubs, not Italian ones, contacted me.”

Harry Kane snub

Harry Kane should ignore advances from Manchester United and cement his legacy at Tottenham.

That’s the opinion of former Spurs star Jamie O’Hara, who isn’t convinced the England captain would be successful at Old Trafford were a reported £200million transfer completed.

“For me, there are so many brilliant players who haven’t won loads of trophies but have left a legacy [at one club] that lasts a lifetime,” O’Hara told talkSPORT.

“If Harry Kane leaves Tottenham it might not work out. He might go to Manchester United and he might not win anything. He could win something at Spurs but even if he doesn’t he’s going to be regarded as one of the best and most loyal footballers to have ever been at that club.”

Kalidou Koulibaly contact

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been in contact with Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly.

The Senegalese international, who turns 29 in June, is wanted by several heavyweights across Europe including Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.

But French publication Le10Sport claim Klopp has taken action to trump his rivals to Koulibaly’s signature.

It’s said the German tactician outlined his future plans and forming a formidable partnership alongside Virgil van Dijk.

Pietro Pellegri to Manchester United

Manchester United want to sign Monaco striker Pietro Pellegri.

Pellegri, who was once hailed as the new Lionel Messi, joined Monaco as a 16-year-old for £17million.

The deal made him the second most expensive 16-year-old in the world behind only Vinicius Junior, who was signed by Real Madrid for £40m.

However, a series of muscle injuries means he’s not played a competitive match since September 2018.

Despite that, Gianlucadimarzio claim Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made Pellegri a target in the upcoming transfer window with the club having monitored his progress for over three years.

Mario Pasalic agreement

Chelsea and Atalanta have agreed a deal for midfielder Mario Pasalic.

The 12-capped Croatia international joined Chelsea from Hajduk Split in the summer of 2014 but has never made a senior appearance for the Blues.

He’s enjoyed loan spells with Elche, Monaco, AC Milan, Spartak Moscow and two seasons with Atalanta, where he’s scored 15 goals and provided 13 assists in 74 appearances.

The Serie A side are desperate to sign the 25-year-old on a permanent basis and look to have captured his services after a productive meeting between Atalanta CEO Luca Percassi and Marina Granovskaia on Wednesday.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport say Atalanta will pay £15million for Pasalic – the figure agreed upon when he initially joined the Italian club on loan in 2018.

Achraf Hakimi focused

Achraf Hakimi is determined to be successful with Real Madrid.

The 21-year-old full-back has been linked with Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea after a successful two-year loan spell with Borussia Dortmund.

But his agent Alejandro Camano claims Hakimi has had ‘magnificent dialogue’ with Real Madrid and wants to play at the Bernabeu next season.

“He will link back up with Real Madrid when the season finishes,” Camano told Onda Madrid. “We’ll see what happens after that.

“We’ll reach an agreement of some sort over whether he stays or goes, but without forgetting that the aim is to play for Real Madrid one day because, for him, it’s the best club in the world.”
