Man City win record fourth English title in a row as Foden scores twice in 3-1 win over West Ham

Phil Foden scored twice early on as Manchester City clinched an unprecedented fourth consecutive Premier League title with a commanding 3-1 victory over West Ham.

Pep Guardiola’s dominant side showed little sign of last-day jitters, though a stunning goal from Mohammed Kudus just before halftime at the Etihad Stadium momentarily sparked hope for rivals Arsenal.

However, Rodri soon dashed those hopes by driving home City’s third goal, sealing their sixth league triumph in seven seasons under Guardiola’s inspirational leadership on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

The win ensured City remained out of reach for second-placed Arsenal, regardless of their result against Everton.

Arsenal had been relying on a favor from West Ham, who were already secured in ninth place and were playing their final match under David Moyes’ second tenure as manager.

With City demonstrating remarkable composure throughout the run-in, only the most optimistic Arsenal supporters believed they might falter.

City quickly put those hopes to rest, taking less than two minutes to assert their dominance and eliminate any doubts about the outcome.

With the sun shining and their player of the season Foden in scintillating form, City’s performance was nothing short of stylish.

Foden received a pass from Bernardo Silva on the right, cut inside, evaded a challenge from James Ward-Prowse, and unleashed a left-footed shot into the top corner from the edge of the box.

Man Utd’s full confirmed list of transfer ins and outs after summer budget emerges

Man Utd chiefs impressed by Atalanta midfielder Ederson

Manchester United is gearing up for a significant summer overhaul under the new football operations leadership of Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Ineos, following their purchase of a minority stake in the club.

With the decision made to retain manager Erik ten Hag, United’s focus has shifted to the transfer window. After finishing eighth in the Premier League last season, the club is eager to strengthen the squad, though they must navigate the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR). This means United’s transfer budget could be limited to £50 million, contingent on player sales.

Several players have been linked to Old Trafford, including Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite, Wolves’ Matheus Cunha, and Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee. Ratcliffe’s plan involves building the team around young talents like Rasmus Hojlund, Alejandro Garnacho, and Kobbie Mainoo.

The squad revamp has already begun with the release of high earners Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial after their contracts expired. Jadon Sancho, following a public dispute with Ten Hag and a loan stint at Borussia Dortmund, is also up for sale, with United seeking around £40 million for the winger.

Mason Greenwood, after a loan spell at Getafe, is set to leave the club with interest from various European teams. Other potential departures include Victor Lindelof, Christian Eriksen, and Donny van de Beek, who are all in the final year of their contracts.

As pre-season approaches next month, United aims to complete most of their transfer business early. Mirror Football provides the latest updates on all the ins and outs at Old Trafford.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s fresh stance on selling Fernandes after Man Utd contract demand

Sir Jim Ratcliffe's fresh stance on selling Fernandes after Man Utd contract demand

Sir Jim Ratcliffe and the Manchester United hierarchy are open to offers for Bruno Fernandes as they aim to raise funds and cut wages.

Despite Fernandes’ consistent performance since joining in January 2020, financial pressures are pushing the club to consider his sale. According to the Guardian, Manchester United acknowledges Fernandes’ key role in the squad but needs to inject money back into the team and manage the wage bill.

Fernandes’ agent, Miguel Pinho, has been in discussions with potential buyers, including Bayern Munich. Although Barcelona has been mentioned, their financial issues make them a less likely option.

Fernandes, who currently earns around £220,000 a week, is seeking a contract extension with improved terms, aiming for parity with top earners like Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho. Rashford’s basic salary is approximately £365,000, while Sancho and Casemiro are in the £300,000-a-week bracket. At 29, Fernandes sees his next contract as potentially the most lucrative of his career.

Additionally, Fernandes wants clarity on the club’s direction, especially with the uncertain future of Erik ten Hag, following Manchester United’s worst Premier League season. The potential managerial change could influence several players’ decisions about their futures, including Fernandes, who has emphasized the need for the club to match his ambition.

“I love to step out at Old Trafford more than anything in the world,” Fernandes shared with the Players’ Tribune. “I don’t want to leave. This has always been my ultimate dream. I just want my expectations to fit with the expectations of the club. If you go talk to any fan, they will tell you the same thing. We want to compete for the league. We want to be playing Champions League football. We want to be in cup finals. That is the standard.”

Given their significant market value, both Rashford and Fernandes could be considered for sale if substantial offers come in, especially as Rashford has struggled to maintain top form over the past year.

Man City 1-2 Man Utd: Garnacho & Mainoo score to help Red Devils win FA Cup! (VIDEO)

Manchester United and Manchester City met at Wembley for the second consecutive year, competing for the prestigious FA Cup title.

A win was crucial for both sides, not only for the bragging rights in Manchester but also because the outcome of the final would determine which English teams would secure spots in European competitions next season.

Erik ten Hag’s squad had a historically poor Premier League season, finishing 8th—the lowest position for Manchester United in the Premier League era—and missing out on European football for the first time in a decade.

Despite the disappointing league finish, Bruno Fernandes and his teammates knew that a victory at Wembley could partially redeem their season and guarantee them a place in European competition next season.

Here’s how Manchester United’s FA Cup win has impacted Chelsea and Newcastle’s participation in Europe next season.
