Talking Cock Session: Daily update on the latest club news and highlights

In our latest update talk cock sessions, we look at the latest club news, Manchester United, Erik ten Hag, Jeremie Frimpong, Sofyan Amrabat and Donny van de Beek gossip, and highlights that have football fans from over the world buzzing with excitement.

With several players out of contract at Manchester United this summer, a number are said to be “delaying decisions on their futures due to uncertainty over whether Erik ten Hag will still be at the club next season

Some Manchester United players are delaying decisions on their futures “due to uncertainty over whether Erik ten Hag will still be at the club next season.

Several United players are convinced Ten Hag will not remain in charge beyond the current season.

Seven senior players are out of contract in the summer while there is uncertainty over the futures of several other squad members amid the upheaval following Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s investment.

United have won one of their past seven league games and fourth-placed Aston Villa are now a near-unassailable 13 points clear of Ten Hag’s side. United’s plight is so severe they have four points fewer than they had at the same stage under David Moyes in 2013-14 – their worst season in the Premier League era.

New co-owner Ratcliffe has declined to give public assurances Ten Hag will be in situ next season and the Ineos Group has assessed prospective replacements.

United are said to have held “concrete talks” with Bayer Leverkusen over Jeremie Frimpong

One player who could be at Manchester United next season is Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong.

The 23-year-old has played a pivotal role in Xabi Alonso’s side winning the Bundesliga, with the title being wrapped up with a 5-0 win over Werder Bremen on Sunday.

However, despite Alonso committing to the club for next season amid managerial links to Liverpool and Bayern Munich, he is braced for a mass exodus of talent as financial juggernauts lurk.

Among them is Man Utd, who are struggling to pick up Premier League wins, let alone the trophy.

Frimpong’s management is discussing the possibility of a transfer to Old Trafford.

Frimpong has an exit clause in his contract running until 2028 that stands at £40m.

However, any club after the right-back will need to move quickly, with the clause only active until the start of the European Championships in June.

Man Utd, who are going into the summer under the sporting direction of new minority owners Ineos and Sir Jim Ratcliffe, will face competition from Real Madrid and Bayern.

Like The Red Devils, the toppled Bavarian giants are said to be in “concrete” talks with Frimpong’s management over a deal.

Sofyan Amrabat could leave Fiorentina to join another Serie A side, AC Milan

As one of the expected Old Trafford departures, Sofyan Amrabat is unlikely to go back to Fiorentina after burning his bridges to force a move.

AC Milan are a team who could offer him the chance to return to Serie A.

Sofyan Amrabat’s Manchester United career looks to be coming to a close.

Amrabat signed for United following a protracted transfer saga that started before last season had even ended.

The current front runners for his signature this summer are AC Milan.

Amrabat has played 23 times for Manchester United, starting in just 24 per cent of those games.

It’s unlikely that Amrabat would have a future at Fiorentina – having gone on strike to force a move to United.

Donny van de Beek will be sent back to Old Trafford by Eintracht Frankfurt

Eintracht Frankfurt will not move to make Donny van de Beek’s transfer permanent.

The Dutchman has not done enough to interest the team in exercising their option to buy him.

Donny van de Beek will be returning to Manchester United after his nightmare Eintracht Frankfurt spell.

The Dutch midfielder joined the Bundesliga side on a loan deal until the end of the campaign in January.

There was a £ 9 million option to buy inserted in the deal that took Van de Beek to Germany.

As it stands, it looks like that won’t be activated by Frankfurt.

The German side has already decided not to sign him on a permanent deal.

That call is just the latest in a long line of embarrassing moments for Van de Beek in Germany.

The midfielder, still just 26, has made just seven appearances for the club this term – four of which have been starts.
