Manchester United ‘Offer Paul Pogba In Stunning Swap Deal For Juventus Star’

Manchester United have offered Paul Pogba to Juventus in a proposed swap deal for Douglas Costa, according to reports in Italy.

The French World Cup winner has been instrumental in the Reds’ upturn in form in recent weeks, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side boasting a 100-per-cent record from the Norwegian’s five games in charge.

Pogba netted four goals and provided three assists in that period in a run of form that saw him named United’s player of the month for December.

The 25-year-old, who has been passed fit to play against Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday afternoon, was at odds with former United manager Jose Mourinho for much of the Portuguese’s final 12 months at the club before his dismissal on December 18.

The pair were embroiled in a war of words from the beginning of the campaign, and Pogba was stripped of the club’s vice-captaincy in September after criticizing Mourinho’s negative tactics following the home draw against Wolves.

Many observers believed it to be a case of Mourinho or Pogba at the club and the academy graduate has asserted himself as a vital component of Solskjaer’s reinvigorated side over the past three weeks.

Pogba, who scored twice against both Huddersfield and Bournemouth at the end of last month, was on the receiving end of a horror tackle from Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey that kept him out of the FA Cup third round victory against Reading.

The former Juventus star trained with United’s first-team during the five-day warm weather camp in Dubai and is set to feature from the outset against Spurs at Wembley as United look to claw back ground on the Premier League’s top four.

But Tuttosport claim that United are prepared to let their most marketable asset leave the club to secure the services of Brazil winger Douglas Costa, 28.

The 5ft 5ins wide man is still to score a goal for club or country this season after 22 appearances.

‘My Hard Work Paid Off,’ : Says New World Champion Richard Commey

Ghana’s latest world champion, Richard Oblitey Commey has told Kasapa Sports that he earned his title by dint of “hard work and determination”.

Commey delivered a masterful performance to beat Russian Isa Chaniev to become the new IBF Lightweight World Champion Sunday dawn.

A left hand by Commey blasted Chaniev, 26, early in Round 2 to produce a second knockdown. Moments later, Commey, 31, pounced and banged the Russian with a left uppercut, right-hand combination that ended matters.

Commey’s only two pro defeats both came in 2016, and many media members believed he deserved the nod in each fight. First, he dropped a split decision to Robert Easter in his only other bid for a title. Next up was Denis Shafikov, who outpointed him in the same manner.

Lomachenko is rated No. 1 by The Ring pound-for-pound, but he’s best suited for 126 pounds. Commey, a physical specimen, will enjoy a considerable size advantage. It’s shaping up as a tough challenge for the two-time Olympic gold medalist.

Commey in an exclusive interview Kasapa Sports said: “I won this title through hard work and determination because the kind of training here is not a joke, it got to a point I realized that staying in Ghana would not help so I had to relocate and my decision has paid off”.

“For now, my management team is working hard on my next step in my career so I won’t talk about my next opponent I would like to sit back and enjoy my world title,” he told Adam Adjei.

Manchester United In Discussions With Chinese Club To Sell Marouane Fellaini

Manchester United are in discussions with an unnamed Chinese club over the potential sale of Marouane Fellaini.

The Belgian agreed a two-year extension to his terms last summer that ties him to the club until 2020. United had told the player he was under no pressure to leave but that they would be open to a serious offer to sign him. Unlike the domestic transfer window, which closes on Thursday, the Chinese one is open until next month.

Fellaini was David Moyes’s sole major signing in the summer 2013 window and has struggled to be accepted by some United fans. José Mourinho oversaw Fellaini’s contract extension but the Belgian has struggled for game-time under the Portuguese’s temporary successor, Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

Fellaini is currently injured with a calf problem and has not featured since the 2-0 FA Cup win over Reading on 5 January.
