David De Gea to stay at Manchester United Manchester United is looking to build the strongest and most formidable squads in Europe. In an attempt to reclaim lost glory, Jose Mourinho is not holding anything back. United have fended off Real Madrid interest in David De Gea by offering him a new contract. The contract would keep Spanish goalkeeper at Old Trafford after his contract expires in 2019. The new contract wards off the interest from De Gea’s longtime admirers Real Madrid. The recent extension adds salts to wounds after Real infamously failed to sign De Gea two years ago reportedly due to a dodgy fax machine. Jose Mourinho has no intention of losing out on his No. 1. The United manager is all set to keep the Spaniard at Old Trafford well after 2019. Sergio Romero though still has to wait for his chances at Manchester United.
Diego Costa set to return to Atlético Madrid After falling out of favor with Antonio Conte at Chelsea, Diego Costa is set to return to Atlético Madrid. Reportedly the deal that values at $65 million could have fallen apart had Everton manager Ronald Koeman had his way. Everton was willing to splash £70 million to sign the Spain international from Chelsea. Everton was pretty interested in signing Costa from Premier League champions Chelsea, but the player chose his former club Atletico instead. After losing Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, Everton is struggling to find a striker all summer. Everton also failed to sign Arsenal man Olivier Giroud earlier in the summer.
City to offer new contract to Sterling Ever since moving from Liverpool, Raheem Sterling has not held himself back at Manchester City. Pep Guardiola has kept his faith in the striker as City look to offer Sterling a new contract. Sterling still has three years left on his contract and is a key part of City’s future plans. Arsenal earlier in the summer failed to acquire the services of Sterling after their bid was rejected by City. New contracts are also on offer for Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, and Gabriel Jesus.
Arsenal yet to make big signings Arsenal is yet to make up for the loss of Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain to Liverpool. After going through a tough time keeping Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil at the Emirates, the gunner is looking to find an early replacement for Per Mertesacker who is due to retire at the end of the season. Le Havre’s 19-year-old defender Harold Moukoudi has caught the eye of Arsene Wenger.
