    Atlanta’s Martinez injured on international duty

    Atlanta United will have a nervous couple of weeks while it awaits the return of striker Josef Martinez. Martinez was substituted off in the 59th minute of Venezuela’s 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw Peru. He appeared to take a bad step on the turf, leading to an injury. Pulisic remains unfazed as spotlight grows @TotalMLS pic.twitter.com/WKPQBpK3WQ — Plevla (@Plevla1985) March 24, 2017 Venezuela head coach Rafael Dudamel suggested Martinez will need 10 days to recover adding that it was not safe for the striker to travel at the current time. That would rule Martinez out of Venezuela’s next match against Chile on March 28. Atlanta’s next contest is March 31 against the Seattle Sounders. If the 10-day timetable is accurate, Martinez would be a longshot for that game. A likelier target date is April 8’s match against Toronto FC. The in-form striker had bagged five goals in the two games prior to the international break for the expansion side. While he originally joined Atlanta on loan, the MLS side made the move permanent this week.   Kenwyne Jones, who is currently on international duty as well with Trinidad and Tobago, would be appear to be Martinez’s likely replacement if the striker cannot return in time.

    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.
