Manchester United backup goalie Sergio Romero reportedly wants to leave this summer. With Dean Henderson not going out anymore due to his fine performance for Sheffield United last term, there would be three top choices to pick from and Romero doesn’t like his odds.

Per the report, following the return of Dean Henderson from Sheffield United, Romero will go further down the pecking order. Henderson is expected to be the no 2 behind David De Gea and Henderson has also been given the assurance that he will be given a fair chance to fight for the number 1 shirt with De Gea. Romero will not leave for free as the Red Devils are searching for between £8-10 million for his services.

Arsenal defender Konstantinos Mavropanos is on the radar of Bundesliga top clubs. Mavropanos, 22, is currently on-loan at Nuremberg and his impressive form this season has caught the eye of several clubs in Germany.
According to a report from Goal, five Bundesliga clubs have made contact with the players' representatives regarding a potential summer transfer. The defender has been able to adapt to German football displaying a mix of pace and quality on the ball.

David de Gea was globally considered as the best shot stopper in the world, but the last 18 months have been a very testing and enduring one for the Manchester United number one. He has suffered a massive dip in form, costing his team precious points. The latest among his poor displays was his howler against Everton.

Ciro Immobile has been in the form of his life in the 2019-2020 season. The Lazio attacker has enjoyed a considerable level of consistency in front of goal, helping his side to mount a serious challenge against Inter Milan and perennial champions Juventus.
His agent as labelled him the best striker in Europe after the Italian matched a 61-year-old record in Italy's top flight. He has registered 25 goals in the first 21 league games. A streak that has not been met for over six decades.

Former Liverpool player Alberto Aquilani has revealed that he never really wanted to play for Liverpool and that he was more interested in staying in Italy. Alberto Aquilani is considered as one of the worst Liverpool signings under Rafael Benitez after his £17.1m move in 2009 from Roma.

Alberto Aquilani said that he was not prepared to move to England and that it was hard for him to adapt to the demands of the Premier League as well as the weather in England. He said that it was a big change for him from the Serie A but he had the chance to player with some incredibly talented players such as Steven Gerrard, Torres as well as Dirk Kuyt. He said that this is all memories that he will be cherishing for a lifetime.

Spectators saw an energetic Rome derby game when Lazio and Roma earned the same point from it. The SS Lazio earned a 1-1 draw with the goal from Luis Alberto in the second half of the match against AS Roma. The later was ahead because of the penalty hit by Aleksandar Kolarov at the 17th minute, though it seemed at first that Lazio will be able to make it ahead as they hit the post three times before Roma penalty.

The side consisting Simone Inzaghi looked more confident, leveled, and threatening after Alberto’s strike at the beginning of each hour during the match. But their denial came when Marco Parolo, who played as a substitute, hit the crossbar later. Just before Manuel Lazzari thought that he had scored the winning goal, during the injury time, it was declared as offside and was ruled out in the build-up.

Lazio has announced that they have extended the contract of the manager Simone Inzaghi. The Italian manager will be available for the club till June 2021 and will work for them and guide players. He was with the club for over 20 years and has created legends for Lazio. According to Igli Tare, the sporting director of Lazio, he has some unfinished business left with Lazio and will be available to them till 2021.

Now, the club is gearing up to add some new names in the squad after the extension of their coach. The first name in the list is Manuel Lazzari of Spal, who is also a target for Inter and Napoli. Also, the name of Anderlecht midfielder Peter Zulj has come up for Lazio. He is an Austrian midfielder who plays for Belgian Pro League club Anderlecht. He is valued at €5 million and is believed to get signed by Igli Tare, the sporting director of Lazio who has also signed Milinkovic-Savic from Belgium. Also, the name Daniel James came up for Lazio who was being picked by the club but he signed a deal of €21 million with Manchester United of.

AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso has said that the club’s success over the past month has involved teamwork rather than the performances of Lucas Paqueta and Krzysztof Piatek alone. The duo joined the Rossoneri on winter moves from Flamengo and Genoa respectively and they have since contributed notably to the team’s league form.

Speaking to Milan TV, Gattuso said that he was impressed with the showing of both Paqueta and Piatek but the credit for the recent success should be given to the entire squad, he said: "The credit should not only go to Piatek and Paqueta but to the team, as well as to be given credit for the whole group for the performances in the field. The enthusiasm of the fans, however, makes us very happy, we will have to be good to keep it high and then we'll see where we'll get from there."

Simone Inzaghi couldn’t allow a celebration for himself right away. The derby of Rome had been 12 minuted old when Robin Olsen had been rounded by Felipe Caicedo and has scored the opening goal at Stadio Olimpico. Even though the forward hurdled the hoardings of advertisements and rushed to the nearest official for double-checking that the strike is going to stand.

Every goal that is scored in Serie A is going to be reviewed by the VAR booth automatically. They have seen many high-profile reversals. Inzaghi has always been an opponent who is vocal about the technology in previous times and he has contented the fact that it takes away the emotion from football.

When the first half of 2018-19 season came to an end in December, it was time for clubs to sit back and evaluate their performances. The first matches of that part of the year were 19 in total and it showed Napoli and Juventus having gained the first and second positions of the league. The remaining positions in the European championship were free and up for grabs. The eight clubs were on for the race, Lazio, Roma, Milan, Florentina, Inter, Sampdoria, Torino, and Atalanta. These clubs remain eligible to fill spots in Europa and Champions League that are top rungs for Italian football.

The transfer window that opened up in January from 3rd of the month saw each team’s management faced with the task of having to make the right decisions for their respective squads. Lazio was in 4th position in that window. He finally won the relegation race to remain in place in the Champions League. This decision was reached on Monday. The score that Felipe Caicedo achieved help to level the points of Lazio and he has now placed a point behind AC Milan who is fourth in place.
