Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, is willing to give the green light for Eric Bailly’s contract to be terminated.

RMC reports the Red Devils are ready to offload the Ivorian defender for nothing this summer amid interest from Fulham and Saudi Arabian clubs.

The 29-year-old joined United from Villarreal in 2016 but has made only 70 Premier League appearances across six seasons at Old Trafford.

 

Bailly spent last season on loan at Marseille, but the Ligue 1 side showed no interest in making his move permanent as he returned to Manchester.

However, Ten Hag does not see the player as part of his squad.

It’s now claimed United are willing to take the financial hit and allow Bailly to leave the club on a free transfer.

Leicester City manager Enzo Maresca has labelled midfielder Wilfred Ndidi an important player for the club.

Ndidi has been linked with a move away from the club all summer following the Foxes’ relegation from the Premier League last season.

Turkish Super Lig club, Fenerbahce, reportedly have a strong interest in the Nigeria international, while clubs in Saudi Arabia are also said to be keeping tabs on the player.

 

The 26-year-old has one year left on his contract and will be free to negotiate with another club in January.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding his future, Maresca has highlighted Ndidi’s importance to the club.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall is one of the most important players, for sure. But for me, Wilfred is very important, the Italian was quoted by Leicester Mercury.

He’s trying to do something that he never has before, to arrive in the box and to try to be an offensive midfielder. He’s doing very well at that.

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, was asked on Thursday who his No.1 goalkeeper this season will be, with David Raya battling Aaron Ramsdale for the role.

Raya has arrived from Brentford on a season-long loan and is seen as genuine competition for Ramsdale, who has been the undisputed No.1 at the club over the last year.

Matt Turner has joined Nottingham Forest on a permanent deal, leaving both players to slug it out.

 

When asked if he has a No.1 in mind, Arteta replied, In any position? No. 9, 7, 11, 6, goalkeeper – no. Better qualities for our game model, very simple.

We want two players per position. You saw what happened to Jurrien [Timber], it can happen to our goalkeeper, it happened to [Thibaut] Courtois – you have to be prepared.

Liverpool are looking to hijack Manchester United’s move for Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat.

Dutch publication, AD, claims Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has spoken directly with the player already.

Klopp is still in the market for a defensive midfielder and has lost out on both Romeo Lavia and Moises Caicedo, who have opted to join Chelsea instead.

 

However, Liverpool could now be set to win a transfer tussle of their own, as Amrabat is ready to snub United to sign for Liverpool.

It is claimed Klopp has managed to win over the Moroccan international, and the 26-year-old now has his heart set on a move to Anfield.

Amrabat has been linked with a move to United since impressing at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar as Morocco upset the odds to reach the semi-finals.

Medeama SC are ready to unleash new signing Kudakwashe Mahachi on Remo Stars in the CAF Champions League preliminary round first leg clash.

The Ghanaian champions strengthened their team by recruiting Zimbabwe international Mahachi for their debut campaign in the CAF Champions League.

The 29-year-old forward has been without a club since leaving SuperSports United in 2020.

 

Mahachi registered over 20 goals in his six-year stay in South Africa.

He featured six times for Orlando Pirates in the CAF Champions League and has represented Zimbabwe 14 times.

Medeama SC will lock horns with Remo Stars at the Cape Coast Stadium.

The Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, Rivers State, rusticated two students for illicit drug dealings few years ago.

This was revealed by the Chairman, Students Ethics and Disciplinary Committee, Martins Adekanmbi.

He said the management of the institution is not relenting in discouraging students from involving in hard drugs.

 

While speaking to journalists on the sideline of sensitization at the university on the war against the use of drugs, he expressed optimism that the sensitization organized by the Police Community Relations Committee and National Drug Law Enforcement Agency will help in curbing the menace.

He revealed that the management of the institution had earlier commenced an internal awareness campaign against drug abuse and other misconduct in the institution.

The Students Affairs, the VC, the Ethics and the Disciplinary Committee, we believe that it is time to do a sensitization concerning this issue of ethics and discipline among the student, which is under my purview directly.

And so, we have been doing that sensitization right from Monday, meeting students in their hostels from 6 am, canvassing and telling them ills and misconducts.

And, of course, one of the issues, one of the main points of misconduct in the university, is this issue of drug abuse.

So, we saw the opportunity, the PCRC and the NDLEA, they are very poised to come and address our students against the use of drugs. Because we have our laws and our rules. And in the law, under the Ethics and Disciplinary Committee, if you are found using drugs, it is expulsion for one session and a presentation of a certificate of fitness from a psychiatric hospital.

That means if you are found with marijuana, if you are found with colos, if you are found with loud, and all manner of things children take these days, you will be rusticated for one session.

And of course, and then you present a certificate of fitness after that rustication.

Then, if you are found selling, you will be expelled totally from the university.

So, we don’t want that kind of expulsion and we don’t want our children to terminate their destiny from the beginning.

We’ve had two students that have been expelled, almost two years ago, and we have found cases like that.

He said, this sensitization will solve a lot of societal problems.
