    Carrick worth another year at Manchester United – Robson

    Michael Carrick is worthy of a new contract to extend his stay at Manchester United into a 12th season, according to club legend Bryan Robson. Carrick will turn 36 before the start of the 2017-18 campaign and will in June be honoured with a testimonial, having moved to Old Trafford from Tottenham in 2006. Messi comes to Aguero's rescue But Robson, who won two Premier League titles with United, believes Carrick would still have plenty to offer Jose Mourinho's side if he is afforded an extended stay. "Michael's 35 – for me, the way he's played this season and the influence he's had on the team has been pretty good," Robson told Omnisport. "I'm not bothered about the age, it's about the desire of a player and how he looks after himself. "So for me I think Michael deserves maybe another year and I can see Man United doing that." Carrick, who has started 12 league games this season, said this month that he would consider retiring if he is not offered fresh terms.

    Perisic will cost Man Utd €35-40m as Inter shortlist Alexis as replacement

    Manchester United transfer target Ivan Perisic wants to quit Inter this summer and would command a transfer fee of €35-40 million, Goal has learned. United manager Jose Mourinho hit the headlines on Friday after he was spotted in Zagreb ahead of Croatia’s World Cup 2018 qualifier against Ukraine. Mourinho is a big fan of the 28-year-old winger, who is determined to leave the Serie A club this summer. Top 50 teenagers in world football Goal understands that only Champions League football could potentially convince Perisic to remain at San Siro, but that seems unlikely with Inter eight points off a playoff place with just nine games to go. Perisic recently changed his representative to Fali Ramadani in a bid to facilitate a move to the English Premier League, a competition the wideman has never hidden his desire to play in. The former Wolfsburg star’s contract at Inter expires in 2020 and he would cost Manchester United a transfer fee of €35-40m were a deal to be agreed. Chelsea have also been linked to the Euro 2016 star in recent months. Inter are open to letting Perisic leave in order to fund a big-money transfer of their own – with Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez, Fiorentina’s Federico Bernardeschi and Sassuolo’s Domenico Berardi on the shortlist to replace the Croatian. Mourinho is also keeping an eye on Perisic’s Inter and Croatia team-mate Marcelo Brozovic, whose future at San Siro past the summer is also in doubt.

    Highly-rated Ajax starlet admits interest in joining Manchester United

    Ajax youngster Daishawn Redan has hinted that a move to Manchester United could be made in the near future. The 16-year-old forward has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford for some time, with the Red Devils having noted his obvious potential at a young age. An arrival in English football could be edging ever closer, with Redan opting against the penning of a contract in Amsterdam. Ajax sensation discusses future plans That snub has alerted United, Paris Saint-Germain and Red Bull Leipzig to his potential availability, with Redan admitting that the Premier League giants are an enticing proposition. He told Voetbal International: "I hear a lot of rumours around me and I will not deny that there are clubs that are interested. “Manchester United is a very nice and good club of course and I must admit that I am interested in an adventure like that." Said Ouaali, the head of Ajax’s youth academy, confirmed the contract snub on the club’s official website: "We have made a plan for him and had a lot of talks with Daishawn and his management. It's a shame that he will not sign his first contract here. WATCH: Cruyff's best goals for Ajax “We think that he has made a decision about another club." Redan told Goal during an exclusive interview in February that the interest being shown in him by the likes of United is inspiring him to bigger and better things. He said: "If you know a club like Man United is interested, that only gives you confidence and you will do everything you can to get better.”

    Another star to have slipped Wenger's net at Arsenal - Alonso reveals Gunners interest while at Liverpool

    Xabi Alonso can be added to the list of names Arsene Wenger came close to signing at Arsenal, but ultimately missed out on. The Gunners boss has often spoken down the years of how he was in the market for a number of top talents, only to see them head elsewhere or for interest to be shelved. Wenger: Suarez wanted to join Arsenal It has now been revealed that the Frenchman was eager to add ball-playing midfielder Alonso to his ranks while the Spaniard was at Liverpool. With Reds looking to move out a man who would go on to win 2010 World Cup and 2012 European Championship honours with Spain, Arsenal joined the chase. They were, however, reluctant to meet the asking price of a Premier League rival and Alonso eventually ended up signing for La Liga giants Real Madrid in the summer of 2009. Speaking to the Liverpool Echo about his time at Anfield, Alonso said: “I was really close to Juventus and I was close to Arsenal. Arsenal and Bayern fined by UEFA “But, it was just £3m. Liverpool were asking £18m and both offered £15m – so that’s why it didn’t happen." Alonso formed part of Liverpool’s remarkable Champions League triumph in 2005 during his time in England, before going on to enjoy further domestic and European success in Madrid. League titles have also been snapped up in Germany with Bayern Munich, but the 35-year-old has announced that he is to slip into retirement at the end of the current campaign. Alonso added: “I have been lucky enough to be at great clubs from my hometown club to Liverpool to Real Madrid to Bayern Munich. Pep: Alonso one of the best ever “For me, I’ve played for the best team in England, the best team in Spain and the best team in Germany. That’s what I wanted to have - a nice career. I’ve played with great players and worked with great managers, I’ve learned a lot from all of them. “I’ve been lucky but I have earned that luck. I’ve been in the right place at the right moment a few times. I would never have dreamed to have had such a nice career as this. I like football and this is like a nice football journey.”

    Vieira tipped to replace Wenger in 2018 by Arsenal legend Merson

    Arsene Wenger will spend another year at Arsenal before handing the reins to his former captain Patrick Vieira, says Paul Merson. The man currently at the helm is facing plenty of tough questions regarding his suitability to the role. Pires makes big Wenger renewal call Fan protests have been staged against Wenger, with that disgruntled section of supporters firmly against the awarding of a new contract. Merson, though, believes that a 12-month extension will be put to the long-serving Frenchman. He feels that will get Arsenal enough time to get their house in order before moving in a new direction under the guidance of a man who won three Premier League titles in north London. Merson told Sky Sports: “My instincts tell me he's [Wenger] going to sign and he's waiting for a big win and he'll sign for another year. "I wouldn't be surprised if he stays a year and then Patrick Vieira comes in." Iwobi: Wenger deserves more respect Pressed on whether Vieira would be a suitable candidate for such a big job, the former Gunners forward added: "Yes. He's learning his trade over at New York City, he's been at Man City, and he brings a winning mentality, he won't take any rubbish. "Arsenal look too nice at the moment. I think that could happen and the fans would love that. "The players don't seem like they're working that hard for the manager at the moment, which is sad. "Whoever comes in it's going to be a step-up - it's a big, big football club but I don't see a problem. Podolski: Wenger is Arsenal "He's a legend, which gives you some leeway. I just think he'll get his team playing the way he played the game, which is what they need at the moment." Arsenal, who have collected just three victories from their last nine fixtures in all competitions, return to action after the international break with a crucial clash against Manchester City at Emirates Stadium.
