Brighton released official statement denying the selling of Marc Cucurella

Brighton and Hove Albion have released an official statement claiming that they have not agreed to sell Marc Cucurella, contrary to widespread reports.

It had been reported on Wednesday evening that Chelsea had beaten Manchester City to the signing of the Spanish defender, agreeing a £50million fee with the Seagulls.

He would become the Blues third signing of the summer, after Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly, and would have brought an end to their long quest to acquire a left-sided defender, with Cucurella capable of playing at wing-back, full-back, and in a back-three.

However, a message from Brighton’s Twitter account later that night read: ‘Contrary to inaccurate reports from numerous media outlets this evening, no agreement has been reached with any club to sell Marc Cucurella.’

It is said that the deal has not been completed as there has been a delay in the sale of Levi Colwill to Graham Potter’s side, who has been used as a bargaining chip in the Cucurella transfer.

Colwill, Chelsea’s young and highly-rated centre-back, has been linked with various Premier League clubs this summer, and could move to Brighton for around £20m.

Cucurella enjoyed a successful first season at Brighton in the last campaign, having moved from Getafe for £15m, helping the Seagulls to a best ever Premier League finish of ninth place.

The Norwegian striker made his debut for Pep Guardiola’s side in Sunday’s Community Shield match against Liverpool at the King Power Stadium and endured a frustrating evening, missing a golden chance from six yards in an eventual 3-1 defeat.

“We will see about settling in,” he said in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreeves.

“People can take time, people can come directly into it. We have to see, but I’m not concerned. That’s life as a footballer – you have to live with it.

“You are a kind of entertainer. You get judged every single week for what you do on the pitch and you have to deliver and do your best.

“For me as a striker, this is something I cannot stress about because if you think too much, you might end up doing things you don’t want to do.

“It’s all about trying to enjoy, live in the moment. People talk about what you did a year ago, but it’s the next game that counts.”

Diogo Jota says Liverpool have everything to fight for titles

Liverpool forward Diogo Jota has signed a new contract with the club, saying that he believes the Reds have ‘everything to fight for titles’ in the years to come.

The Portuguese international arrived at Anfield in the summer of 2020 and has become a fan favourite since then thanks to the speed at which he settled into Jurgen Klopp’s attack and his impressive goalscoring return.

The 25-year-old has scored 34 times in 85 Liverpool appearances in the two years since signing from Wolverhampton Wanderers for around £40m, and has now committed himself to the club with that Liverpool called a ‘long-term’ agreement which is understood to run until 2027.

The former Porto and Atletico Madrid striker has already won the FA Cup and Carabao Cup in his time with the club, and was part of the team which reached the UEFA Champions League final in May and missed out on the Premier League title by a point to Manchester, and says the belief that Klopp and his staff have shown in him is behind his decision to renew.

‘Well, [I’m] really proud, I have to say,’ Jota told Liverpoolfc.com after signing his new contract. ‘Obviously since I arrived two years ago I established myself as an important player in this team – that’s what I wanted from the beginning.

‘Now, signing a new long-term deal, it’s obviously from the club’s perspective proof of the belief in myself as a player. For me, obviously it’s really good to establish I’ll be here for a while. So, the beginning of a new season, let’s do it.’

Having started his first pre-season friendly of the summer, Ronaldo was substituted at half-time in the 1-1 draw and was later seen outside the stadium before the end of the match.

Ronaldo’s compatriot Diogo Dalot was another who left before the end of the draw with the La Liga outfit.

Ten Hag: Ronaldo’s behaviour unacceptable

“I certainly don’t condone this,” Ten Hag said about the players leaving early to Dutch broadcaster Viaplay.

“This is unacceptable, for everyone. We are a team and you have to stay until the end.”

Jurgen Klopp hails Darwin Nunez’s performance against Manchester City

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was impressed by the impact Darwin Nunez had coming off the bench to turn the Community Shield in his side’s favour against Manchester City.

The 23-year-old Uruguay striker, who could become the club’s record signing at £85m if all the add-ons included in the summer deal with Benfica come to fruition, was introduced with 30 minutes to go and produced an impressive cameo.

He won the late penalty from which Mohamed Salah put the Reds 2-1 up and then stooped to head home in added time to seal a 3-1 win in Leicester.

He also caused Ederson a few problems, drawing the City goalkeeper into a challenge – in his very first attack – which would probably have resulted in a penalty were it not for an offside flag, and then forcing the Brazil international into a goal-denying save.

“It was good, it was really good. It is clear it will get better with time,” said Klopp. “We live in a world where everybody gets judged on first sight and that’s not helpful for anybody, but it happens constantly.

“In the first few games (of pre-season) we were not even close to the fitness level of today and then when he came on, we passed each ball for him to chase it and after the third ball he was completely killed and then everybody judged his first touches and these kind of things.

“It’s just a joke but we have to live with that, he will deal with it brilliantly. We are patient and we know he can do good stuff.

“I think Darwin would have been fine even without scoring the third one because the penalty was Millie’s cross and his header.

“The chance he had before he did really well, but Ederson reacted brilliantly. The goal was obviously the icing on the cake, so really pleased for him.

“You could see in his face, you could see in the face of all his team-mates how happy the boys are for him and that’s a really good sign after that short period of time that he is with us.”

Lazio demand £59m for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

Manchester United’s opening offer for Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is set to fall well short of the Italians’ valuation of the midfielder.

Milinkovic-Savic, a target for Jose Mourinho during the Portuguese’s time at Old Trafford, has spent the last eight seasons in the Italian capital.

He is now minded to leave the club as, at the age of 27, he fears he’s entering a crucial phase of his career where it could be his last chance to get a dream move to the Premier League.

The Serbian is more of a box-to-box operator but he’s been identified as an alternative to Frenkie de Jong by United.

United have agreed a £63m deal to sign the Dutchman but he has not intention of leaving the Camp Nou and he is still owed £17m in deferred wages.

Barcelona are refusing to make that full payment and, to make matters worse, they’re requesting that De Jong takes another pay decrease if he wants to stay at the club.

United’s deal is now in major doubt, hence their interest in Milinkovic-Savic.

While the Red Devils will wait for as long as they can to sign De Jong, they have spoken to the Serbian’s team about a move to Old Trafford and they’re preparing a £42m bid for the midfielder.

However, the Daily Mail say that Lazio want closer to £60m for the Serbia international and they’ll hold out for their valuation.

Timo Werner agrees huge pay cut to push through Chelsea exit

The 26-year-old has struggled to make an impact at Chelsea since moving to Stamford Bridge in a £47.5 million deal from RB Leipzig in 2020.

Werner, who has scored 23 goals in 89 appearances for Chelsea, started just 15 games in the Premier League last season and is keen to get more playing time ahead of Germany’s World Cup campaign in Qatar later this year.

According to Bild, RB Leipzig are now working on an agreement with Chelsea and are exploring the possibility of signing Werner on an initial loan deal with an option to buy.

The report claims that Werner is ready to return to Leipzig and would accept a 50 per cent pay cut in order to help push the move through.

Werner’s current deal is worth around £275,000 a week, while the forward has also attracted interest from Juventus.
