Man united and City interested in Leipzig star

Dani Olmo is a subject of interest for both Manchester United and Manchester City.

Manchester United Eyeing Jordi Alba Swoop

According to a report by Catalan outlet El Nacional, Manchester United are considering a shock move for Jordi Alba keeping one of the two upcoming transfer windows in mind. Barcelona are not averse to the idea of cashing in on the 32-year-old, who is one of their highest earners.

Jordi spent seven of his formative years with Barcelona before ending his youth playing days at Cornella. The player, though, finally came under the spotlight at Valencia, making significant progress from 2009 to 2012 before returning to Barcelona following a successful and impressive UEFA Euro 2012 campaign.

Since then, the 32-year-old has been a mainstay at the back for the Blaugrana, and has gone on to amass 391 appearances while chipping in with 22 goals and 83 assists in the process. His top notch performances have always created speculation surrounding Alba, with several European bigwigs showing an interest in him over the years. As things stand, Manchester United have set their sights on the Barcelona defender.

Newcastle Utd to rival Arsenal & Real Madrid for the Next Hazard

A new era is on its dawn at Newcastle United, the Magpies are not only looking to better mediocracy but also looking to top the footballing charts for decades and decades to come. Steve Bruce is already been given his marching orders by the new ownership and the massive aims of the club are reciprocated in the probable faces linked with a move to take up the rebuilding job at St James Park – the likes of Eddie Howe, Antonio Conte, Unai Emery are all linked with a move to Newcastle.

With the progress made on the management end, Newcastle are also looking to form a deadly team – with the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Mesut Ozil linked with a move to Tyneside. Let’s be realistic for a second though, Newcastle will be thinking about creating a team and not buying one. Highly rated lads who can make a difference at a smart price (not that they need to worry about money now) makes sense.

One of those links is that of Manor Solomon from Shakhtar Donetsk. His goals against Real Madrid last year in the Champions League gave Manor a platform to build on and that has seen him linked to a move to not only the Whites from Madrid but also Premier League, with Arsenal cited as favourites to land him if he were to come to England. Although no move martialized back in summer and he stayed at Shakhtar.

Now, according to a report by Israeli outlet Walla Sports, Newcastle United have expressed interest in bringing Manor Solomon to England.

Solomon might not be the guy Newcastle fans would be excited about after all the links to the big name faces, but he does look like a genuine talent with real pace who can step up under pressure. Manor, in January, would have just over a couple of years left on his contract with Shakhtar Donetsk which makes winter the perfect time to cash-in on him without losing value.

Manor Solomon has been likened to Eden Hazard with the Guardian tracking Manor’s progress last year suggesting how he can become like the Belgian winger. And if he is anywhere near to Eden Hazard, Newcastle United fans are going to enjoy having Manor Solomon.
