The key free shirt numbers for every Premier League club and who could inherit them…
He shone for Jose Mourinho’s side, scoring 26 goals in 52 appearances in all competitions. This included 17 Serie A goals.
The 24-year-old is heavily linked with a return to the Premier League in recent weeks.
Corriere dello Sport report that Man Utd and Arsenal are currently ‘in the lead’ for Abraham.
They add that “at least three Premier League teams are working under the radar to convince the prodigal son to return to England immediately”.
Although they add that Mourinho has ‘locked him up’ and Roma are ‘resisting the siege’. He will still be in Serie A next season unless an ‘unthinkable offer’ comes along.
Somewhere else, Dean Saunders thinks Paul Pogba’s new documentary ‘sums up’ Manchester United.
His new documentary, titled ‘Pogmentary’, provides insight into his decision to leave United. Some of his comments sparked anger from fans, such as when he said United were “not offering him anything”: “How can you tell a player you absolutely want him and not offer him anything?” Never seen that.
According to Saunders, the documentary encapsulates the issues within the United dressing room, where player image comes first and “football comes second”.
“It’s all a disaster,” Saunders said. talkSPORT.
“Man United are the only club that can give a player free twice and pay £90m for him.
“I’m not going to watch this documentary on purpose because Man United are like an Instagram team – football comes second.
“Talk on the pitch and then you can do as many documentaries as you want.
“Whether [Mohamed] Salah or [Sergio] Aguero made a documentary that I would watch, I admire them, week after week, earning their salaries.
“When someone doesn’t earn their salary and then makes a documentary, that sums it all up.”
