both manager of premier league club in discussion of former barcelona attacker
Chelsea and Manchester United are interested in recruiting former Barcelona strikers.

Former Barcelona Striker Martin Braithwaite has surfaced as a late transfer target for Premier League clubs Chelsea and Manchester United, according to Marca.

Both teams are presently looking to improve their striking departments during the ongoing January transfer window and might turn to Braithwaite. According to Marca, the 32-year-old striker has a release clause of under £6 million, making him a fantastic value for any team.

Chelsea’s first-team attackers have failed to find consistency in front of goal this season. Nicolas Jackson and Armando Broja have each scored just eight league goals, indicating that they are not ready to spearhead their team’s assault. Christopher Nkunku’s ailments have also kept him out for the duration of the Blues’ 2023-24 season.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are in a similar situation. Rasmund Hojlund and Anthony Martial, both strikers, have struggled for goals this season, scoring only three in the Premier League.

With just a few days remaining in the transfer window, Chelsea and United might look at ways to strengthen their front lines and end the season on a high note.

Former Barcelona striker Braithwaite might ultimately be the player either side can rely on in the near term. This season, the Swiss striker has 12 goals in 22 appearances in all competitions for Espanyol, an excellent total.

Chelsea boss responds to Klopp's impending summer departure from Liverpool

Mauricio Pochettino has responded to Liverpool head coach Jürgen Klopp’s decision to stand down from his post at Anfield. He said that he was taken aback when he learned that Klopp planned to depart Liverpool this summer. He said via GOAL:

“I was shocked. I heard the news while at work today. It is quite sad. We already miss him. When I was terminated from Tottenham, the first communication I got was from him. He has done an outstanding job with Liverpool. He wants to recuperate and go away for a short while. I believe he deserves it, but it’s unfortunate for football fans.

Both managers will face off on the pitch on Wednesday (January 31), when Liverpool hosts Chelsea at Anfield in a crucial Premier League showdown.
