Talking Cock Session: Man City Looking to Sign Pogba, Haaland, and More Premier League Rumours

In our weekly talk cock sessions, we look at the latest transfer news, gossips, and highlights that have football fans all over the world buzzing with excitement.

Zaha looking to leave Premier League

With just one year left on his contract, Crystal Palace could look to cash in on Wilfried Zaha this summer as the 29-year-old won’t sign a new deal with the London club. This has gauged the interest of many clubs around Europe and Zaha is looking to leave the Premier League in search of a new challenge. One of the clubs interested is La Liga side Sevilla, who Todofichajes state could sign the Englishman for around €30million. The Spanish side will face competition, however, with several clubs such as Udinese, Lyon and Marseille said to be keeping an eye on the Crystal Palace man’s situation.

Arsenal step up interest for Aaron Hickey

Bologna left-back Aaron Hickey has been making a name for himself this year in Serie A and it has grabbed the attention of many of Europe’s biggest clubs. The Scottish man is having a tremendous season and now Arsenal are said to be one of a number of clubs after the Scottish man. The Premier League side wants a backup for fellow Scotsman Kieran Tierney next season, as the performances of Nuno Tavares have not impressed Mikel Arteta since the Scottish international’s season ended early through injury. The 19-year-old has an attacking style and is very aggressive down the left flank, similar to another one of his countrymen, Andy Robertson.

Manchester City target Paul Pogba

Manchester City are interested in signing Paul Pogba on a free transfer this summer as the Manchester United star’s contract comes to an end at Old Trafford. Pep Guardiola wants to add a new versatile central midfielder ahead of next season to fill the void that is likely to be left by captain Fernandinho, who is also out of contract at the end of the season. The City boss has seen his team underachieve this season as they are likely to just win the Premier League this campaign, and a part of that is the Manchester club’s squad depth, as they never replaced Benjamin Mendy and Ferran Torres in the previous windows. Guardiola and the club’s board clearly don’t want this to happen again and therefore replacing their captain is a must this summer.


Rangnick claims Ronaldo can still play for Manchester United

After Cristiano Ronaldo’s performance against Brentford in May 2022, Ralf Rangnick believe the Portuguese still has the level required to play for Manchester United.


Mauricio Pochettino could replace Antonio Conte

The future of Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has been up in the air for a while now after a series of outbursts during his short time at the club and if Spurs fail to qualify for the Champions League next season, some seem to think the Italian might leave the North London club. The Spurs boss has been linked to the Paris Saint-Germain job in recent weeks, as former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is set to be sacked by the Ligue 1 side after an underwhelming season. Conte branded the speculation as “fake news” recently, but whether that is bluff or not remains to be seen.

Man City expect to sign Haaland

This summer is reported to be a big one for Manchester City, as they look to put this season’s disappointments to bed by refreshing the squad and tieing down their legendary manager, Pep Guardiola. Man City were the victims of another Real Madrid comeback on Wednesday night, which saw Guardiola’s sides’ hunt for a first Champions League title go on. There have been questions over the squad’s depth this season and the Telegraph has reported that this will be addressed in the upcoming window, as well as the manager’s future. City are hopeful that Guardiola will extend his contract with the club beyond his 2023 expiration date and the Manchester club will likely look to extend the Spaniard’s deal to something similar to Jurgen Klopp’s new contract at Liverpool, which sees the German stay on Merseyside until 2026.

Raphinha ready to leave Leeds

Leeds United’s Raphinha has had his name linked to Barcelona for a long time now and that move now looks closer to coming to fruition. In the next few days, there will be a meeting between Barcelona’s director of football Mateu Alemany and Raphinha’s agent, to try and reach an agreement before negotiating a move with Leeds. The Premier League side a currently in a relegation battle with Burnley and Everton, and have the toughest run-in out of the three, which doesn’t bode well for Jesse Marsch’s side. Should the Peacocks get relegated this season, their star player Raphinha will only set interested clubs back €25million, which is easily affordable from a Barcelona standpoint, despite their financial struggles.
