Liverpool Has Most Valuable Squad In Europe

Liverpool World Champions

The research group CIES Football Observatory have just released its most valuable squads in the transfer market from Europe’s top-five leagues, and it is the current European and World Champions who now sit top the pile.

The Liverpool squad is now worth a whopping €1.4 billion (£1.27 billion), which puts them ahead of every other club on the continent. Second is Premier League rival Manchester City at €1.36b.

Spanish giants Barcelona (€1.17b) and Real Madrid (€1.1b) are third and fourth respectively, with Chelsea shockingly in fifth place (€1.08b) despite having been banned from signing players in last summer’s transfer window.

Ole Looking At Next Season As United Beat City Again

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claimed Bruno Fernandes had energised “the whole club” but insists Manchestre United still need new players after their derby victory over Manchester City.

United boss Solskjaer also hailed the character of the January signing after he had the last laugh in a heated exchange with City manager Pep Guardiola late in United’s 2-0 success at Old Trafford.

Portugal midfielder Fernandes, who set up the opening goal for Anthony Martial, put his fingers to his lips after arguing with Guardiola moments before Scott McTominay sealed victory in injury time.

Solskjaer Backs De Gea After Another Error

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted David de Gea’s mistake for Everton’s opening goal in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United was “unfortunate”, but praised him for his later saves.

The Spanish goalkeeper hesitated on the ball before lifting a clearance directly into Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who diverted it straight into the net for an early opener.

However, he saved well from Calvert-Lewin moments later before making a superb stop in the dying minutes to deny Gylfi Sigurdsson a winner.

“It’s something that happens in football once in a while if you take too long on the ball,” Solskjaer told BBC Sport of the early error.

Ole Hails January Signings

OGS Man United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised January signings Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo after Manchester United eased through to the last 16 of the Europa League.

United dismissed Belgian opponents Club Brugge 5-0 at Old Trafford to win 6-1 on aggregate.

Fernandes pulled the strings in the first half, scoring the opening goal from the penalty spot after a spectacular handball from defender Simon Deli, who was sent off.

The Portuguese then played a crucial role in the second for Ighalo before Scott McTominay, making a welcome return to the starting line-up after injury, grabbed a third before half-time.

Ole Gunnar Solskjae Giving Another Vote Of Confidence

Love United Hate Glazers

Ed Woodward has reiterated his support for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite the club’s finances take a continued hit from the absence of Champions League football.

The United executive vice chairman believes the Old Trafford outfit is making progress with a squad rebuild and that they have a foundation to ‘deliver long-term success’ under the Norwegian.

He also promised a ‘planned, disciplined approach’ to summer transfer business.

United announced their second quarter figures this lunchtime, and much of it does not make for pleasant reading.

Ole Lauds Praise On Bruno Fernandes

Bruno Fernandez

Bruno Fernandes was described as a mix between Paul Scholes and Juan Sebastian Veron by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after inspiring Manchester United’s 3-0 home win over Watford.

The Portuguese’s performance, pulling the strings in the centre of the park, led United manager Solskjaer to compare his new signing to two midfield greats.

Fernandes opened the scoring from the penalty spot for his first United goal and also added an assist for an excellent third goal scored by Mason Greenwood which put the result beyond doubt.

The 25-year-old has impressed since joining the club last month, and with his acquisition, it looks like United have made a shrewd move in the transfer market.

Ole Praises Anthony Martial After Europa League Goal

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Anthony Martial can be a 20-goal striker for Manchester United after the Frenchman salvaged a Europa League draw in Bruges.

Martial’s equaliser makes United favourites to reach the last 16 of the competition when they meet Club Brugge again at Old Trafford next week.

It also took him to 14 goals for the season following his header against Chelsea in United’s 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

Marcus Rashford has 19 so far this season but Solskjaer thinks Martial can go one further after moving in from the left wing to replace his injured teammate.

Man United Beat Another Top Six Side

Ole

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expressed relief after Harry Maguire netted his first Premier League goal for the club – and insisted that the star didn’t deserve to be dismissed against Chelsea.

The club captain guided home Bruno Fernandes’ corner to seal a crucial victory at Stamford Bridge, but was fortunate to escape a red card after appearing to kick out at Michy Batshuayi.

After his side moved within three points of fourth spot, Solskjaer backed the England international and highlighted an ongoing joke between the pair.

Speaking after yet another shutout for United, Solskjaer told Sky Sports:

Ed Woodward Says Man United Will Spend Heavily This Summer

Love United Hate Glazers

Manchester United will spend heavily again this summer after admitting it will take more than the signing of Bruno Fernandes to turn them into title contenders.

Fernandes moved to Old Trafford last month in a deal worth up to £67.8million after United paid £145m for Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Dan James last summer.

United chief Ed Woodward accepts that more investment will be needed to revive Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad, and acknowledged that this summer will be a key period in the process.

In his introductory remarks to a recent fans’ forum, Woodward said:
