During the UEFA Euro 2024 group J qualification football match held in Lisbon on June 17, 2023, Cristiano Ronaldo, the forward of Portugal, engaged in a vigorous battle with Amar Dedic, a midfielder from Bosnia. The intensity on the field was palpable as both players demonstrated their exceptional abilities and unwavering determination.
In a separate development, Chelsea is encountering formidable competition in their endeavor to acquire the talented 21-year-old Bosnian player, Amar Dedic, from Red Bull Salzburg. According to The Sun, there are multiple teams showing interest in signing the promising young player Dedic, including former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho. Arsenal, Barcelona, and Newcastle are also keen on acquiring his services, intensifying the competition for his signature.
Chelsea has been closely observing Dedic’s development, with their scouts in attendance at all of his Champions League matches this season, as well as various league games and Euro 2024 qualifiers for Bosnia. Similarly, Newcastle has been monitoring Dedic’s progress, with their scouts present at recent Champions League fixtures of Red Bull Salzburg and international matches of Bosnia. At the moment, Manchester United is contemplating the possibility of acquiring Real Sociedad’s Takefusa Kubo, a winger from Japan. Kubo has the potential to replace Antony, who has not met expectations while playing on the right wing. United has dispatched scouts to observe Kubo in action on at least seven occasions during this season. Kubo has been performing exceptionally well since joining Sociedad, having scored 15 goals and provided 13 assists in 67 matches since his transfer worth £5.5 million.
Kalvin Phillips, a midfielder from Manchester City, is currently seeking reassurances about the amount of playing time he will receive before making a decision regarding his next move. Phillips has caught the attention of Juventus and Newcastle, but he wants assurances from both teams before making up his mind. Juventus might have a slight edge because they need to strengthen their midfield due to long-term player absences, while Newcastle is dealing with a situation where a lot of their players are injured.
