Manchester United in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic over new deal

Manchester United in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic over new deal

He said: "Last season we were favourites too and finished 15 points behind and, from my experience as a manager, always in the beginning of the season, the new teams are the toughest ones".

Manchester City travel to Falmer Stadium to face Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League on Saturday evening, and are expected to give the newcomers a rude awakening.

Alvaro Morata, on his debut as a substitute, and David Luiz replied for Chelsea either side of Cesc Fabregas' sending-off for a second booking in the 81st minute. Alan Shearer is the only player in Premier League history to have been involved in more, with 324.

"This season, in this moment, I agree with these people who think this".

The Portuguese tactician guided the Red Devils to their maiden UEFA Europa League crown in his first campaign, and will get his second underway with a Premier League test against West Ham United on Sunday. Arsenal and Jose Mourinho's United missed out last time, but will that be the case again?

However, Mourinho has lost a number of key players to long-term injury, including defenders Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw, and wing-back Ashley Young.

The arrivals of defender Victor Lindelof, midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Romelu Lukaku have also improved the squad.

This will not be an easy game for City.

Pressed on whether the Premier League crown has become more of a priority in 2017-18, Carrick added: "The league is special because it is such a tough division to win".

City will play the way Pep Guardiola wants: keeping possession and using movement and quick passes to find a way through a well-organized Brighton defense. He returns as England's and United's record scorer, and with something to prove after spending most of last season on the substitutes' bench. We spent, of course, but all the teams spent - except maybe Tottenham.

There's a chance it could get worse before it gets better for the current Chelsea team.

Nearly 5,000 days later, Wayne Rooney is back scoring in the blue of Everton.

Here, we look at some of the top football transfer stories from the British and world media in The Sport Review's Grapevine, published twice a day during the summer transfer window.
