Erik ten Hag eyes Luke Shaw replacement who Mourinho failed to sign at Man Utd

Luke Shaw has been a mainstay at left-back for Manchester United, but his recurring injury woes have prompted manager Erik ten Hag to consider other options.

With the backing of the INEOS team overseeing football operations, United is expected to make significant signings in the summer, and a new left-back could be on their list if Shaw remains sidelined.

Shaw has missed much of this season due to muscle issues and suffered another setback last month against Luton Town.

His deputy, Tyrell Malacia, has also struggled with injuries this season, leaving Diogo Dalot, traditionally a right-back, to fill in on the left flank.

United’s top brass recognizes that this makeshift solution is unsustainable, leading them to search for a new left-back.

One of their targets is reported to be Girona’s Miguel Gutierrez, a player previously of interest to United during Jose Mourinho’s tenure.

Gutierrez’s performances have attracted attention from other top European clubs, including Real Madrid, who have a buy-back clause for the player. However, Real Madrid’s pursuit of Alphonso Davies may open up opportunities for Gutierrez elsewhere.

At just 22, Gutierrez represents a long-term solution for United’s left-back position, providing competition for Shaw and potentially displacing him as the first-choice left-back in the future.

Palmer overtakes three-season Havertz stat at Chelsea

His scoring spree also highlights his incredible impact at Chelsea, as he has now scored more league goals in his first seven months at the club than Kai Havertz managed in three seasons, tallying 19 goals.

Palmer’s outstanding form has been instrumental in Chelsea’s climb up the Premier League table, bringing them within just three points of sixth place.

'He's had 48 hours' - Arsenal boss shares update on Bukayo Saka after furious penalty demand

Bukayo Saka expressed frustration at not being awarded a penalty after a clash with Manuel Neuer during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

He confronted the referee at full-time and even followed him down the tunnel, a departure from Saka’s typically composed demeanor.

When questioned about Saka’s condition before the upcoming match against Aston Villa on Sunday, Mikel Arteta stated, “Yes, he looked fine this morning.”

“He’s had 48 hours to think about it and it’s done.”

Arteta chose not to address the incident after the game, but there was a general consensus that Saka’s contact with Neuer was minimal.

Saka faced criticism for his reaction, but given the high emotions of the game, such reactions were not uncommon.

Real Madrid 3-3 Man City: Valverde caps off evening of stunning goals in Champions League thriller

Manchester City and Real Madrid played out an enthralling 3-3 draw in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, setting up an intriguing second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

City took an early lead through Bernardo Silva’s cleverly taken free-kick, but Madrid equalized twice with deflected strikes from Eduardo Camavinga and Rodrygo, which took slight touches off Ruben Dias and Manuel Akanji respectively.

Phil Foden restored City’s lead with a superb strike from outside the box, before Josko Gvardiol scored his first goal for the club with a fine right-footed shot to make it 3-2.

However, Madrid fought back once again, with Federico Valverde’s stunning volley ensuring the tie ended level.

The result leaves the quarter-final finely balanced ahead of the second leg, with City looking to replicate their 4-0 victory over Madrid in last season’s semi-finals at the Etihad Stadium.

There was a late injury concern for City as Foden hobbled off following a late tackle on his ankle, but the extent of the injury is yet to be determined.
