Antonio Conte to reject Newcastle; he’s holding out for Manchester United
Antonio Conte has been one of the first names to appear in the limelight when Newcastle United takeover was announced, and he likely was one of the favourites to take up the job from Steve Bruce at St. James Park. Now with Steve Bruce being paid his reportedly 8million to relieve his duties as Newcastle United manager, the Sun claim that despite all the rumours linking Antonio Conte to Newcastle United – he’s set to reject the job at hand and hold out for Manchester United instead with pressure mounting on a certain Ole Gunnar Solskjær at the Old Trafford.
The report suggests that Conte wants his next club to have a team ready to challenge for silverware rather than the rebuilding process. While for Newcastle, they need to go from relegation candidates to a team that has the capacity to challenge.
Antonio Conte doesn’t look like the man for the job, he’s more than Newcastle’s reach. If we look at his last couple of jobs i.e. Chelsea and Inter Milan – it seconds the claims the Sun is making. He took over these clubs with a side who can look eye to eye with others and that’s when he achieved the league title, both in England and in Italy.
Manchester United does have a side that can challenge for silverware, and if they were to get rid of Ole – Conte would be the perfect fit at Old Trafford.
For Newcastle, the candidates like Eddie Howe, Unai Emery, Lucien Favre, and Paulo Fonseca make sense considering the path they want to take. Manchester City didn’t start with hiring Pep Guardiola – they build themselves up under Roberto Mancini before Pellegrini helped with some stability. It’s a process and Newcastle United management and supporters will have to be patient before going for cheery on top managers.
Liverpool Interested In Re-Signing Raheem Sterling
According to SportBild journalist Christian Falk, as relayed by Sport Witness, Raheem Sterling is on the verge of leaving Manchester City. The attacker is frustrated over his lack of game-time at Etihad and is reportedly interested in seeking a move away from the club, in an attempt to relaunch his career.
Barcelona have been linked with a move for Sterling recently, but Man City’s hefty price-tag has put them out of contention. But two new teams have apparently emerged as potential suitors for Englishman, and one of them is, quite shockingly, his former club Liverpool.
Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Sterling had actually begun the early parts of his career in Anfield, arriving there in 2010 from the QPR academy. In a few years time, the winger became one of the finest young talents in England and was promoted to the senior side in 2012.
Arsenal, Man United, Aston Villa Battle For Calvin Ramsay
According to Ekrem Konur, Arsenal are among the clubs that are keeping a close eye on Calvin Ramsay. The Aberdeen youngster has attracted a lot of attention in the English market after his breakthrough in Scotland, with the Gunners joined by Manchester United and Aston Villa in the list of clubs interested in his services.
A native of Aberdeen, Ramsay began his youth footballing career at his hometown club, rising up the ranks before eventually sealing promotion to the senior side this summer. It was largely thanks to a rather promising end to the 2020/21 campaign that saw him being involved in quite a few matches.
This season, the 18-year-old has gone on to become the club’s first-choice right-back, with eight appearances in the Scottish Premiership so far. He has already turned a lot of heads with his attacking prowess, notably registering three assists in the league, two of which have come in the last two matches against St. Mirren and Celtic respectively.
