Edinson Cavani opens up on Manchester United regrets

Edinson Cavani has sent a farewell message to Manchester United supporters as he prepares to leave on a free transfer.

Cavani signed for United from Paris Saint-Germain in October 2020 and had a big impact in his first spell at Old Trafford, scoring 17 goals in all competitions.

A string of injuries has limited Cavani to two goals in 20 appearances this season with capacity crowds returning to stadiums after restrictions introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I wanted to contribute more this season,” Cavani, whose contract expires in June, said in an interview with the club’s website.

Boubacar Kamara: Midfielder slated for Aston Villa transfer decision

Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara will join Aston Villa on a free transfer this summer in what looks like a major move for Steven Gerrard’s side.

The news, however, did not sit well with some believing that leaving his boyhood club which qualified for the Champions League for a mid-table side in the Premier League shows a lack of ambition.

French expert Jérôme Rothen told RMC Sport: “I don’t understand. The Premier League is the best league in Europe, but it has five or six headliners. Aston Villa are among the second tier teams.

“Do Aston Villa have star players? No. They are therefore not going to fight for the top places in the Premier League. I would be surprised if they finish in the top 10, so they have very little chance of playing in European competition.

“Is an international player going to join a team 14th in the English championship? Will Kamara play with Bertrand Traoré and Morgan Sanson? Sportingly, he will struggle (to move to the next level) at Aston Villa.

Aurélien Tchouameni: the Monegasque midfielder shy on the future of the transfer

Aurélien Tchouameni has been linked with all the big clubs after his rapid rise this season.

Real Madrid, Liverpool and Chelsea continue to be linked with the 22-year-old, who looks set to leave AS Monaco this summer.

The France international, however, was remarkably coy about his future when asked about it by CNN.

“It’s funny. With my friends Benoit Badiashile and Djibril Sidibé, every morning they tell me: ‘Ah, you go to this club.’ “And the next day it’s another club. But it’s good to be in this situation. It means that I’m in a good position. I worked hard to achieve this, so that the best clubs want me.

“But in the end it’s just social media… the most important thing is to be good in training and in the next match. We’ll see.”

Romelu Lukau: Chelsea striker wants talks

The Daily Telegraph claims Romelu Lukau’s agents will seek talks with Chelsea once the Todd Boehly takeover has taken place.

The Belgian has endured a difficult season at Stamford Bridge and has been linked with a return to Italy, having previously spoken of his love for former club Inter Milan.

Latest West Ham transfer news

Alphonse Areola is set to make his loan move from PSG permanent, leaving Moyes with a potential headache over who to make his No1, writes Malik Ouzia.

If his salary proves a stumbling block, signing Nick Pope from relegated Burnley could be an alternative.

The club have been in talks over Rennes centre-back Nayef Aguerd, while Nottingham Forest captain Joe Worrall is another option if the Championship side fail to win promotion in the play-off final on Sunday.

The Hammers failed with a £50m bid for Kalvin Phillips in January and would have rekindled that interest had Leeds been relegated, but the England international now looks set for Manchester City. Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse has been linked and seems a more realistic target this summer, although he is not cheap.
