AFTER GOOD FOLLOWERS
A total of FIVE Premier League matches, scheduled for next weekend, have been postponed.
Those are Manchester United vs Brighton, Southampton vs Brentford, Watford vs Crystal Palace, West Ham vs Norwich and Everton vs Leicester.
Meanwhile, United are the ‘only’ serious bidder for Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland.
That’s according to SportBild, who report that the Red Devils are strong contenders for Haaland’s signature compared to other suitors, but will have to qualify for the Champions League first.
Chelsea already have Romelu Lukaku, while Real Madrid’s priority is to buy Kylian Mbappe.
Haaland could replace Mbappe at Paris Saint-Germain but a move to Paris ‘will only be a replacement’ for him.
Manchester City, meanwhile, are keen to sign Harry Kane in the summer and the Tottenham star remains a ‘dream’ target for Pep Guardiola.
Bayern Munich will not be considered for long when Robert Lewandowski is still leading the attack while Barcelona are still struggling financially.
And Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will once again be blocked by Mikel Arteta as a late return cost him the captaincy.
Aubameyang has missed the last two games as coach Arteta lost patience with his striker because of the most recent lack of discipline.
And the Spain head coach has revealed the 31-year-old will not feature in Saturday’s game at Leeds as his exile continues.
Arteta said: “No, he is not available for this game.”
Asked if Aubameyang has a future at the club, Arteta added: “He’s not available for this game.”
In the end, Man City coach Guardiola canceled his press conference after the results of the COVID-19 coronavirus test came out.
The Spain head coach is currently awaiting the results of the next test, but the pre-match press was turned off.
This comes after five Premier League matches, scheduled for the weekend, were postponed. That’s because the COVID-19 outbreak has taken over some clubs
