Pulisic to fight for future at Chelsea

Christian Pulisic is not about to walk out on Chelsea, claims Fabrizio Romano.

The United States international has struggled to nail down a regular Blues role under Thomas Tuchel, leading to talk of interest from Liverpool and Manchester United, but he is ready to fight for his future at Stamford Bridge.


Tuchel keen on keeping Rudiger

Chelsea will try to sign Antonio Rudiger to a contract extension before the summer to avoid the risk of him leaving on a free transfer in 2022, with the Daily Mail reporting manager Thomas Tuchel is a driving force in getting a deal done soon.

Tuchel has needed the German centre-back to perform at a high level with Thiago Silva injured, and the 28-year-old has rewarded his boss with steady play at the back over the past month.


Van de Beek wants to quit Man Utd (Daily Star)

The creative midfielder has been relegated to a fringe role for the Red Devils after signing last summer

Donny van de Beek is tired of spending time on the fringes of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad and is ready to quit Manchester United if not allowed back into the first-team soon, claims the Daily Star.

Van de Beek was signed from Ajax last summer with the expectation he would be a key playmaking force, but he's made only two Premier League starts in his first year with the Red Devils.

He will reportedly have a sit-down with Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward about his future with the club.

Former Manchester United defender Marcus Rojo has said he talked with Edinson Cavani about joining his current club, Boca Juniors.

"He is a great professional and if he reaches Argentine football, he would be a great star that would do Argentine football good," Rojo said via the Manchester Evening News.

Cavani has scored six league goals for the Red Devils this year but indicated he might be happier playing in South America next year.


Lazio to seek Ranocchia free transfer

Lazio will look to sign Inter Milan defender Andrea Ranocchia on a free transfer to provide depth at centre-back, according to La Lazio Siamo Noi.

Arsenal inspired to keep loan star Odegaard (Daily Mail)

The Norwegian has been all the Gunners had hoped for since his arrival, and they would like to make his move permanent

Arsenal have already seen enough from Martin Odegaard to want him beyond this season, according to the Daily Mail, with the attacking midfielder's goal against rivals Tottenham at the weekend adding to their affection.

Odegaard was sent to London by Real Madrid in January as Zinedine Zidane was struggling to find a regular place for him.

The 22-year-old has expressed admiration for how Arsenal operate, recently saying he feels at home in Mikel Arteta's dressing room.


Leverkusen in pole position to sign Draxler
