There’s been quite a few exit rumours flying around today, something that seems sadly inevitable now Rafa Benitez’s departure has been confirmed by the club on Monday.
They claim that he will now push for a move to Valencia – a side that finished 4th in La Liga last summer and are set to take part in next season’s UEFA Champions League as a result.
West Ham have had an offer of £10m plus James Hugill and Sam Byram rejected, but it seems they are set to return with an improved bid.
And finally, the Evening Standard claim that Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to see the club ‘speed up’ moves for Harry Maguire and Sean Longstaff once they complete a seemingly imminent £50m deal for Palace star Aaaron Wan-Bissaka.
A takeover or surprisingly good appointment could change things and boost our hopes of keeping all three, but I can’t say I’m holding my breath for either to happen when both decisions/deals are in the hands of a certain Mike Ashley.
