Romelu Lukaku asks Jose Mourinho to make one signing

Published

on

Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku has reportedly asked Jose Mourinho to sign his brother Jordan from Lazio.
United are in the market for more fresh faces following Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant’s arrivals at Old Trafford.

And Mourinho is eager to land a left-back having been forced to use Ashley Young in that role due to Luke Shaw’s poor form and fitness problems.

Juventus ace Alex Sandro is believed to be Manchester United’s first-choice target to replace Shaw on a permanent basis.

However, it seems Lukaku would rather see Mourinho raid Serie A for another left-back if he is to strengthen his defence.
According to Italian newspaper Il Messaggero, Lukaku has spoken to United about signing his brother Jordan from Lazio.

Lukaku Jr, who turns 24 later this month, is apparently looking likely to leave the Stadio Olimpico.

And that’s because he’s fallen out with Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi, who signed him from Oostende in 2016.

Should United follow Lukaku’s wishes and pursue a deal for his brother, they may end up disappointing West Ham.
The Hammers have been in talks with Lazio for weeks over a move for Lukaku Jr’s team-mate Felipe Anderson.

And it appears the left-back might also have come up in conversation during those meetings.

United, meanwhile, have been linked with a swoop to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

However, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague says United are not interested in the Portugal international.
“The representatives from Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid spoke about the situation,” said Balague, as Ronaldo edges closer to joining Juventus.

“They reached a position where he got an offer from – I almost said Manchester United then – but they are not interested at all, they haven’t been involved.

“He will get £30m a year from Juventus and they are willing to pay £100m and no more than that.

“Real Madrid haven’t received that offer yet, but Jorge Mendes has promised it will arrive soon.”

Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho has issued out warning to Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp ahead of both teams’ clash in the Premier League fixture on Sunday evening at Anfield.

Mourinho has warned Klopp that real success can only be achieved when a club win trophies not matches.

The Portuguese gaffer has won both the Carabao Cup and Europa League trophy with United since taking over in 2016.

“I think trophies matter,” Mourinho was quoted by EPSN as saying ahead of Liverpool’s clash.

“It matters, especially when you have the potential to fight for trophies and especially when you clearly say the objective is to win the trophy.

“I think sometimes to just say it is not very intelligent but when you have the potential, you have nothing to hide, you know from day one your potential and your desire.

“To say we want to win, everyone can say that but another thing is to say the potential in a way you have but I think Jurgen said already they want to win the Premier League, that is their objective.”

Klopp has not won any trophy with Liverpool since taking over in 2015 from Bundesliga side, Borussia Dortmund.

The 51-year-old has lost the Caraboa Cup and the Europa League finals as well as the Champions League.

Klopp’s men are currently on top of the English topflight league table with 42 points from 16 games, while Mourinho’s side are sixth place with 26 points from the same number of games.

Why Liverpool is better than Manchester United- Mourinho

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted the huge gap between his team and Liverpool, is due to many factors.

Mourinho takes United to Anfield on Sunday, with his side sitting some 16 points behind the Premier League leaders.

They’ve lost four matches in the league this season, while Liverpool have remained undefeated.

“It’s not just about the money they spend in the summer, is about many things.

“It’s not just about spending money and reinforcing the squad, a football team is more than that, is not just about spending the money.

“It’s like a house, it’s not just about buying the furniture, you have to do work, you spend money on the best possible furniture and then you’re ready to live in an amazing house,” Mourinho told UK Mirror.

Mourinho then delivered the killer line when he was asked how far away his team are from what he wants to be seeing, placed in the context of Jurgen Klopp continually getting the best out of his Liverpool players.

“Far,” he said, simply.

And then what asked why, he replied: “The reasons I was saying. It’s not just about spending.”

Following the Gunners’ 1-0 victory over Qarabag in the Europa League encounter played on Thursday night, Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen has compared Nigerian-born and Arsenal forward, Bukayo Saka to Juventus ace, Cristiano Ronaldo, uniquesports.com.ng reports.

Saka made his first start for Unai Emery’s side against Qarabag on the left wing and showed plenty of confidence, as he tested goalkeeper, Vagner, with an early strike from the edge of the box and tried to take on defenders.

The 17-year-old also missed a good chance to score his first Arsenal goal in the second half against the visitors.

Owen has now suggested that Saka already has similarities with Ronaldo.

“He [Saka] looked really nervous at the start of the game, myself and Martin [Keown] were both talking about it,” Owen was quoted by Metro UK as saying.

“But he certainly grew into the game. Just him having the courage to run at players was really refreshing to see.

“Some of the skill… I watched Ronaldo doing this the other day for Juventus.”

“He’s just different class and by the end of the game, his confidence was oozing.”

Saka will hope to feature for Arsenal when they tackle Southampton this weekend in the Premier League.
