TODAY’S HOTTEST FOOTBALL NEWS: Paul Pogba Wants Zinedine Zidane As Boss, Man City Will Win The Premier League, United Will Be Second And Chelsea 3rd – Neymar

Published

Man Utd star Paul Pogba wants to play under Zinedine Zidane.
Pogba has spent the last two years floundering for Manchester United and clashing repeatedly with Jose Mourinho along the way.
The France international is understood to want out, with Juventus now his No 1 destination because of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Manchester United are so far, however, holding firm. They insist the 25-year-old is going nowhere despite his ongoing power struggle with Mourinho.
And The Sun say Pogba is hellbent on playing under Zidane, who has emerged as the leading candidate to succeed Mourinho.
Should Mourinho fail to arrest their slump, a parting of the ways would be on the cards.
United have axed David Moyes and Louis van Gaal in the years since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
And they are likely to do the same should Mourinho fail to land them a place in the Champions League.
The Sun say Pogba is keen to play under Zidane, who he idolised growing up.
A club insider is quoted as saying: “Paul grew up with Zidane as his hero and would like to play for him at some stage in his career.
“He could have back at Real, but he felt he had unfinished business at United and their interest only came along very late in the day.
“Paul has a similar all action style to Zidane and a lot of what he days was off the back of watching him and learning from him.”
Should Zidane take over at United, it may be enough for Pogba to stay.

Luis Suarez makes Paul Pogba to Barcelona transfer claim

Paul Pogba would like to be battling on more fronts than he currently does for Manchester United – and would be welcome at Barcelona.
That’s the view of Barcelona star Luis Suarez who believes the Frenchman would be a hit at the Nou Camp.
Pogba has struggled at United since returning to Old Trafford from Juventus in 2016 with there being plenty of talk regarding his future over the summer.
Barca, Juventus and PSG were all believed to be interested but the midfielder stayed put and was even named captain by Jose Mourinho for the opening two games of the Premier League season.
United have already suffered two defeats this campaign and are not expected to fight for the title with Liverpool tipped to be Manchester City’s closest rivals.
United are also unlikely to be in the running for the Champions League crown and Suarez believes Pogba would want to be more competitive having won the World Cup this summer.
“He [Pogba] is a part of the elite and has a lot of quality,” Suarez told RAC1.
“I think he would like to compete for more than he is now. He is not a player that belongs to Barca, but quality players would always be welcome.”
Pogba was the subject of a cheeky £45m bid from Barcelona that included Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes – who have since joined Everton – in the deal.

Man City will win the premier league, United will be second and Chelsea 3rd – Neymar

Neymar, 26, has tipped Pep Guadiola’s Man City to win this seasons’s premier league.
The PSG star when pressed on who would take the other top four places his chin before saying: “Second will be United, third is Chelsea.”
The Brazilian then paused before adding: “Fourth is Tottenham.”
Neymar was joined at the Pokerstars event by his former Barcelona team-mate Gerard Pique, who was close by listening to Neymar’s predictions.
Pique reacted in shock as Neymar dubbed Spurs as fourth-place finishers – handing a snub to Liverpool.
But Neymar confirmed “no Liverpool” – despite the Reds sitting top of the pile after four games of the Premier League.
NEYMAR’S TOP FOUR PREDICTION
1) MANCHESTER CITY
2) MANCHESTER UNITED
3) CHELSEA
4) TOTTENHAM
City’s squad include a host of Neymar’s Brazil team-mates including Ederson, Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho.

Real Madrid boss Lopetegui reveals why Ronaldo Juventus transfer happened

Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus from Real Madrid was unpreventable, according to Los Blancos manager Julen Lopetegi.
Ronaldo stunned the football world earlier this summer by choosing to quit Real Madrid for Juventus.
The 33-year-old decided to call time on his Bernabeu career to embark on a new challenge in Serie A after nine glittering years in La Liga.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus has not been well-received by Real Madrid fans, particularly given the club’s failure to land a replacement.
Lopetegui succeeded Zinedine Zidane in June and was powerless to prevent Ronaldo from jumping ship.
Real Madrid have enjoyed a solid, if unspectacular, start to the new season.
Gareth Bale is now their talisman and, in the post-Ronaldo climate, the Wales international is back to his blockbuster best.
And Lopetegui has now revealed why he was unable to convince the player to stay.
Lopetegui was confirmed as Real Madrid’s new boss on June 12 while Ronaldo officially completed his move to Juve a month later on July 10.
And the Spaniard’s latest comments suggest Ronaldo had already made up his mind prior to the World Cup that he would be leaving Los Blancos.
He said: “I did not speak with him.
“Because when I become Real Madrid coach, he had already chosen to leave.”
Ronaldo has struggled for Juventus so far, failing to score in his first three Serie A outings.
And Old Lady legend Alessandro Del Piero has given the veteran some advice.
“In Italy we defend looking for the numerical superiority and it is complicated for a striker,” Del Piero said.

Koscielny’s agent opens up on offers to leave Gunners

Arsenal star Laurent Koscielny had multiple offers to leave the Gunners last season, according to his agent.
The 32-year-old was reportedly considering a move away from The Emirates, with clubs in France and China interested.
However, his season was cut short during a Europa League semi-final clash against Atletico Madrid, where he suffered a torn Achilles tendon.
This ruled the defender out for a minimum of sixth months, scrapping any plans of a move away from Arsenal.
His departure would have coincided with that of former boss Arsene Wenger, and Koscielny’s agent, Stephane Courbois, revealed his client had felt the time had come to move on.
Speaking to France Football, he said: “At that time, Laurent was playing what might have been his final matches with Arsenal.
“Laurent started to consider a possible move away from Arsenal at the same time as Arsene (Wenger).
“The moment was right, leaving as a new coach arrived. I had already anticipated this and two or three offers were making us think hard.”
Wenger ended his 22 year stay as Gunners boss in May this year, with new manager Unai Emery taking over the reins immediately.
