The competition to get Dani Olmo is heating up between Manchester City and Manchester United. Given Barcelona’s apparent interest in the playmaker now employed by RB Leipzig, this won’t be an easy feat. The giants of the Bundesliga in Germany requested the services of the Spain international in the winter of 2020. He moved to Germany at that time.
Olmo has been an essential component of their system and will also be participating in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. It is claimed that Spain coach Luis Enrique is a fan of the footballer, and he has been a fan of Olmo. Despite the fact that he is effective, Dani has not drawn much notice, which comes as a surprise given that the German club has been successful in keeping hold of him thus far.
However, the playmaker, who is only 24 years old, will be the focus of considerable transfer speculations during the summer of 2019. As for how RB Leipzig will respond to this challenge, that remains to be seen.
Since the Dutch manager took over, the Red Devils have been on a rollercoaster ride, but things appear to be getting back to normal now.
Man United has gone eight matches without suffering a loss, which has put them in position to challenge for one of the top four spots in the league. However, Bruno Fernandes’s lackluster play might be cause for concern for the Red Devils given the challenging schedule that lies ahead of them. Donny van de Beek has not really risen to the challenge and taken advantage of his opportunities.
According to recent sources, Valencia and other parties are interested in purchasing him, and Manchester United may decide to cash in on their interest.
The Spanish playmaker will enter the final year of his term the following year, and it would be a wonderful opportunity for the titans of the Bundesliga to earn some quick money by agreeing on a trade for him if he were to leave next year.
What Erik ten Hag said to the Manchester United players following the loss to Cadiz
After their 4-2 friendly loss to Cadiz, Erik ten Hag chastised Manchester United players for letting their standards slip.
At the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla, United fell behind 2-0 after just 13 minutes, and despite Anthony Martial’s penalty and Kobbie Mainoo’s deflection goal just before halftime, Cadiz triumphed easily.
Ten Hag altered the entire outfield team for the second half after being dissatisfied with the first half’s performance and added 10 academy players.
What particularly irritated Ten Hag was United’s clumsy start with experienced players, with full-backs Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Brandon Williams responsible in their debut under the Dutchman.
“In fairness, the first 15 minutes cannot occur; it must always be the standard. That was the topic of our conversation because it is against our standard and should not occur “Ten Hag stated to MUTV. We’ll try again tomorrow, but we need to put a stop to it, draw a line in the sand, and move on because it can’t happen again.
Ten Hag gave the newcomers’ performance a more forgiving evaluation. For the second half, United fielded a team with an average age of 18 and a half, including Mainoo, Marc Jurado, Tyler Fredricson, Sam Murray, and Noam Emeran.
Only Dishon Bernard, Charlie Savage, Shola Shoretire, and Charlie McNeill had played on the first team when they were originally presented.
