Manchester United to target Michael Edwards?

Manchester United are reportedly ready to try and lure former Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards back into football with a lucrative role at Old Trafford.

That is according to the Independent, who claim Jim Ratcliff's INEOS, a group set to acquire a minority stake in the Red Devils, are admirers of Edwards.

However, it is claimed that it is "uncertain" whether Edwards, who left Liverpool in June 2022, would want to get back into football.

Mohamed Salah transfer vow made by Al-Ittihad chief after Liverpool rejection

Al-Ittihad president Anmar Al-Haili has vowed to reveal all the details about their summer-long pursuit of Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.

Salah. faced intense speculation over his future at Anfield after the reigning Saudi Pro League champions looked to continue their shopping spree in Europe - namely the Reds and the Premier League.

Last summer, Salah's Liverpool team-mate Fabinho signed for Al-Ittihad after ending his five-year stay on Merseyside. The Brazilian midfielder followed fellow Reds legends Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino in the Middle East, after they joined Al-Ettifaq and Al-Ahli respectively.

And during the final week of the transfer window, Ittihad submitted a verbal offer worth up to £150million for Salah. However, it was immediately rebuffed by Liverpool, after reiterating their firm stance surrounding the Egyptian forward.

Saudi Pro League director of football Michael Emenalo has previously claimed that "no doors" have been closed on their interest in Salah.

And in an interview with Spanish outlet AS, Al-Halil has suggested he will disclose their pursuit of Salah, as well as former Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos and Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne.

He said: "I remained silent… but I hope to be able to respond soon to what happened in the last week of the summer market regarding Salah, Ramos… and De Bruyne."
