Mason Greenwood ‘overhauls his image’ by cutting his hair while an innovative tactic could see Man Ute raise their bid for Rasmus Hojlund.

 

When is a haircut not a haircut?
Another depressing day begins with ‘Mason Greenwood’ trending on Twitter, largely thanks to The Sun and a new picture of him ‘training’.

The headline?

Mason Greenwood overhauls his image as he has private coaching session amid interest from Premier League-winning manager

We’re not sure when ‘has had a haircut’ became ‘overhauls his image’ but we suspect it was exactly at the moment that a new image of Greenwood dropped in which it was clear that his hair had been cut.

Also, the haircut is exactly the same one Greenwood always used to have when playing football, which is remarkable for an image overhaul.

MASON Greenwood is sharpening up his finishing and his image as he prepares for his footballing comeback – possibly with an Italian loan move.

The suspended Manchester United striker has been undergoing private 1-2-1 coaching sessions at an £85-an-hour public pitch.

And a week after he was first pictured by The Sun, new snaps show he has discarded his long wavy hair in favour of a crew cut.

This is a ludicrous sentence; he did not have ‘long wavy hair’ (it didn’t even reach the nape of his neck), he had an Afro.

And depressingly, where one leads then others follow so…

It was a sodding haircut.

Still a haircut.

 

Repeat to fade
The Sun also have an exclusive that ‘MANCHESTER UNITED are preparing a second bid of £40million to land Rasmus Hojlund’.

Put that through the Mirror headline generator and what do you get?

Man Utd ‘raise striker bid by £10m’ as Erik ten Hag hopes for Mason Mount transfer repeat

He hopes that a £40m bid leads to a £55m agreed price? That seems a tad pessimistic if anything. Though negotiations somewhat reminiscent of their protracted and ultimately extortionate move for Antony last summer.

Manchester United are set to submit an improved bid for Rasmus Hojlund as Erik ten Hag seeks to finally end his striker search.

He really will be desperate to ‘finally end his striker search’ as we enter *checks calendar* July.

Coming into the summer transfer window, Ten Hag made signing a new forward a priority, with Harry Kane his top target. But with £60million of his budget now going on a move for Mason Mount, the United boss has been forced to explore alternative targets.

Well, £55m of his budget has gone on Mount but let’s not get too distracted by such nonsense and instead find out how Ten Hag is ‘hoping for Mason Mount transfer repeat’.

Mount is already on his way, with a fee having been agreed with Chelsea, and United are using the same tactics in their move for Hojlund.

Ah, so it’s the transfer methods that are eerily similar. And Manchester United are of course entirely alone in having bids rejected for players, raising them, and then having them accepted. Will this revolutionary ‘tactic’ every catch on? Maybe Arsenal should have tried this ‘tactic’ with Declan Rice. Oh. As you were.

 

Tell it to the mountains
Yes, we’re a broken record with this sh*t but…

Dominik Szoboszlai tells Jurgen Klopp he’s got a position problem after Liverpool transfer

…is the Mirror‘s way of ‘telling’ us that Szoboszlai has said that “it doesn’t matter to me where I play”. He ‘told’ the Liverpool website rather than Klopp but why let that get in the way of some utterly shameless clickbait?

And how is this versatility a ‘problem’? F*** knows because they never mention it again.

And there’s this…

Jamie Carragher tells Jurgen Klopp next Liverpool transfer after Dominik Szoboszlai signs

Did he ‘tell’ Jurgen Klopp or did he tell Sky Sports? You know the answer to that question. And when did he impart this knowledge? ‘After Dominik Szoboszlai signs’, obviously, as it says so right there in the headline? Or on June the sodding 10th?

 

The hateful EIGHT
Over at Chelsea, Mauricio Pochettino is starting work with the Blues but MailOnline are already here with a massive dampener and a BIG number.

Mauricio Pochettino arrives at Chelsea to start work as their new manager on day one of pre-season… and he’s got plenty to do with EIGHT players on the way out and new signings on the way

EIGHT, you say?! Well, that sounds like a lot. Let’s hear who these EIGHT players are…

Despite the wealth of talent at Pochettino’s disposal, it won’t be plain sailing for the 51-year old with plenty still to change at the club before the new season gets underway.

Having already offloaded several major stars such as N’Golo Kante and Kai Havertz, eight players are still set to leave the club before the new campaign.

So EIGHT players even after Kante and Havertz? Now we really want to know those names.

Homegrown star Mason Mount is on the verge of completing his move to Manchester United, having arrived at the club on Monday despite Pochettino’s wishes to work with the midfielder.

So that’s ONE.

The likes of Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may also move on, though the former failed a medical at Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr last week, putting his expected exit in doubt.

And that’s (maybe) THREE.

Pochettino however will be eager to get to work on a testing project, and will have plenty to sort if he is going to help the club get somewhere close to where they once were as a team.

And that’s it – the end of the story. And we are still waiting for FIVE more names.

Of course, we are being facetious as Chelsea may well offload another EIGHT players this summer. But with 35 names currently on their first-team squad list, we suspect that Pochettino will be happy to push one or two through the door.
