Jogging back 24/7.”Another added: “Monreal should never play again.”“As much as I have appreciated Monreal he is starting to look 80 years old. #afc #arsenal #EVEARS,” a fellow supporter said.06:56 UPDATE: Man Utd to copy LiverpoolManchester United will copy Liverpool’s approach to defensive rebuilding and are ready to break the transfer record to land the players they want.Liverpool smashed the world record transfer fee for a defender in January 2018 when signing Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in a £75m deal.Goalkeeper Alisson was bought from Roma in the summer for just shy of £67m.United, meanwhile, failed to land any of their key defensive targets and Jose Mourinho was sacked in December after a dire start to the campaign.The Evening Standard report that the Red Devils will now use the same approach as Liverpool this summer – and are willing to spend £200m to get the deal done.Transfer news LIVE: Real Madrid and Barcelona are tipped to move for Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk (Image: GETTY)06:33 UPDATE: Liverpool warned over bidsLiverpool can expect big-money bids from Barcelona and Real Madrid for Virgil van Dijk this summer.That’s the warning BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks has given.“Real Madrid and Barcelona must be in frantic talks with their banks about how much it might cost to buy Van Dijk,” Crooks said.“An audacious bid is bound to happen sooner or later – if it hasn’t already.”06:00 UPDATE: Sarri wants Chelsea dealMaurizio Sarri has confirmed Chelsea will push ahead with plans to sign Mateo Kovacic permanently.Kovacic is currently on loan from Real Madrid and there is an option for the Blues to buy him.And a deal makes sense, with Chelsea currently under a two-winter transfer embargo imposed by FIFA.A permanent Kovacic deal would not fall under that embargo as the option was agreed in the initial loan terms.“I want to try with Kovacic. He is only on loan, of course, but I’d like very much that Kovacic will stay with us,” Sarri said.“You know very well that, in that position, we have some problems because we have only Jorginho. In my opinion, Kovacic could become a very good central midfielder.”
