Man Utd keen to fill ‘chasm’ in team with 30-goal Serie A sensation

first_img Immobile is the top scorer in Serie A this season with 27 goals – six more than his nearest rival for the ‘Capocannoniere’ award, Cristiano Ronaldo. The 30-year-old has a phenomenal record for Lazio since joining them in 2016. So far, he has scored 116 goals in 167 appearances for the Rome-based side. This season, he has reached 30 goals in all competitions for the second time in his career. And that form has led to belief he could fill a “chasm” in Manchester United’s lineup. That’s according to Calciomercato.it, who claim that United are considering Immobile as a potential strike target. The Red Devils failed to replace Romelu Lukaku last summer, and could be looking for a new striker. Marcus Rashford has stepped up this season, while Odion Ighalo recently extended his loan until January 2021. However, Calciomercato believe that United could still try to add another option at centre-forward in the shape of Immobile.Advertisement Manchester United are interested in signing Ciro Immobile, but face a battle to convince the Lazio striker, according to reports in Italy. It may not be easy to prise him away from Lazio, however. The Italy international remains under contract until 2023 and is keen to stay in the capital, where he has found the most regularity of his career. The possible price tag of €50m would also raise doubts about the chances of the deal going through. No talks have begun between the two clubs yet, despite the real “appreciation”, the report adds. United are not the only club interested in Immobile, however. TEAMtalk revealed in April that Carlo Ancelotti is eager to take him to Everton, and would be willing to give up Moise Kean in a swap deal. read also:Serie A: Immobile nets hat-trick as Lazio thrash Sampdoria to keep title chase alive Kean is understood not to be part of Ancelotti’s plans, just one year after he was signed from Juventus. A return to Serie A could be on the cards for the youngster, with Lazio’s rivals Roma also interested. Inserting Kean into a potential bid for Immobile would help make Everton’s interest more affordable. However, they will face the same problems as United in trying to convince the player.

Cudjoe calls on stakeholders to unite to restore football

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC) – Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs Shamfa Cudjoe has called for unity among stakeholders and an end to the wrangling between the ousted Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) and the normalisation committee that FIFA appointed to replace it.The two sides are in a fight for control of the association’s accounts at First Citizens Bank, while the ousted William Wallace-led executive appeals the decision by football’s world governing body to appoint the Robert Hadad-chaired committee to run the association’s affairs, at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) in Switzerland.Stressing in an interview with Guardian Media on Monday that she was not taking sides, Cudjoe said she wanted all involved to work together in the interest of the players and the sport.After FIFA uncovered financial mismanagement at the TTFA, it appointed the normalisation committee in March to replace the executive that was elected in the November 2019 elections.“Football in Trinidad and Tobago has been in trouble for quite some time. So, if the parent body [FIFA] has stepped in with intention to restore football, to straighten things out, and to assist in coming up with a plan to get TTFA out of debt, then I think everybody who cares about football, and cares about the sport, the athletes, the footballers and so on, will get on board,” she said.The minister contended that football in the twin-island republic has been tarnished and destroyed by personal egos and power struggles, and expressed hope that “in quick time, good sense prevails… and everybody could come to the table and speak with a face of positivity, unity and moving forward in the best interest of the sport”.“I think FIFA and the normalisation committee through Robert Hadad, has come to assist and I think those who are in positions to assist should jump on board and assist,” she said.“The tug-of-war and the throwing of words, the bacchanal on Facebook and on social media does not help anybody; it doesn’t help the TTFA, it doesn’t help FIFA and it certainly doesn’t help the athletes who are depending on this sport as a means of livelihood and as a means of income generator.”The FIFA-appointed normalisation committee has been mandated to establish a plan to repay the association’s TT$50 million-plus debt, review and amend the local body’s statutes and other regulations where necessary and ensure their compliance with the FIFA statutes, and carry out electionslast_img read more
