Potential transfer twist as Middlesbrough & Fulham battle it out for attacker

Rodrigo Muniz's future remains unclear with Fulham appearing to stall on their deal for the Flamengo attacker.

The 20-year-old has been on the radar of the Cottagers and fellow Championship outfit Middlesbrough in recent weeks and there had been a growing belief that he would secure a move to the Londoners.

However, reports from Brazil have suggested that Muniz may not end up at Craven Cottage as whilst an 8m euros agreement had been reached, Fulham haven't sent off the documents to complete the deal and have instead tried to renegotiate at a lower price.

Perhaps understandably, that has angered the Flamengo hierarchy who are not happy with how the transfer has played out.

Therefore, the update states that Muniz is effectively back on the market, which could open up the door for Middlesbrough, who have been monitoring the player this month.

Interestingly though, it is claimed that the forward is still leaning towards moving to Fulham, so further development are expected in the coming days and weeks once Muniz has recovered from Covid.

The verdict

This transfer saga will be frustrating Fulham fans as they would have thought the deal looked done at one stage and now it's not.

But, they're going to have to be patient as there will still be more twists and turns as they look to agree terms with Flamengo for the player.

From Middlesbrough's perspective, this could give them another chance to get the move sorted but they will need to stump up the cash. Again, this will be one to keep an eye on as further developments are sure to happen in the future.


Sylvester Jasper: Colchester United sign Fulham forward on loan

Sylvester Jasper has played for Fulham's academy side in the Papa John's Trophy

League Two side Colchester United have signed forward Sylvester Jasper on loan from Fulham until January.

The 19-year-old has played three times for the Cottagers' first team, all as a substitute in the 2019-20 campaign.

Jasper scored eight goals in 18 games for the Championship side's under-23 team last season.

He could go some way to replacing winger Kwame Poku, who joined Peterborough United for a "substantial six-figure fee" on Monday.

"Sylvester is a player with bags of potential and is really hungry to do well here," director of football Tony Humes told the club website.


Championship 2021/22 Preview: Golden Boot contenders and table prediction

While the ultimate goal of the Championship season is promotion to the Premier League, the Golden Boot race is always an interesting sub-plot.

Expect this season to be no different, with a number of proven goalscorers looking to make their mark once again.

The current leading candidate appears to be Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic, and it's not particularly difficult to see why.

He is the only player in the second tier who already has a Championship Golden Boot to his name, having hit 26 back in the 2019/20 season.

Last season wasn't an easy one for the Serbian, scoring just three league goals in 27 outings.

However, his record in the Championship with Fulham is nothing short of excellent, bagging 36 in 57 for the Whites.

The most likely to challenge Mitrovic for the crown is Blackburn Rovers forward Adam Armstrong.

Last season, he finished as runner-up in the Golden Boot race with 28, behind only Ivan Toney. In 19 of the last 22 Championship seasons, this tally would have been enough to win the award.

However, he could find goals harder to come by this time around. Blackburn have lost several players, including leading playmaker Harvey Elliott.

The Liverpool loanee assisted 11 league goals last term – six more than anyone else in the squad.

With no one coming in to replace him, the Lancashire side could struggle to create chances.

Nonetheless, if Armstrong stays at Ewood Park for the full campaign, he will undoubtedly cause plenty problems for defences.

Another player who banged them in last term was Welsh forward Kieffer Moore. He found the net 20 times for Cardiff City, and followed this up with a header against Switzerland at Euro 2020.

Although loanee Harry Wilson is no longer at the club, Moore will fancy himself to add many more to his personal tally.

The appointment of Slavisa Jokanovic at Sheffield United could have a huge impact on the Golden Boot race.

The 52-year-old is renowned for his free-flowing attacking play, which greatly benefitted the likes of Mitrovic and Troy Deeney during their best goalscoring seasons.

This alone puts a number of Blades forwards in contention for the prize. The likes of Oli McBurnie, Rhian Brewster and Billy Sharp may have struggled in the Premier League, but all boast impressive goal records in the Championship.

Another player in a similar boat is West Bromwich Albion's Karlan Grant.

His confidence may be low after striking just one Premier League goal last season in 21 outings, but he has proven in the past that he can bang them in at Championship level.

The last time he played in the second tier, he hit 19 for a Huddersfield Town side that finished just two points above the relegation zone.

In a team expected to compete for the title, he should be capable of at least matching this figure.

Once a prolific finisher in the Premier League, Charlie Austin is one of the bookies' favourites for the Golden Boot.

Since his return to Queens Park Rangers, the Englishman has recaptured some of his goalscoring form.

With QPR looking confident going into the new season, the 32-year-old will fancy himself to add several more to his personal collection.

He has already enjoyed an encouraging pre-season, scoring in friendlies against Manchester United and Leicester City.

If you're looking for an outside shout for the award, Peterborough United's Jonson Clarke-Harris could be the man.

The former Coventry City forward was nothing short of exceptional last year, scoring a staggering 31 goals as he won the League One Golden Boot and Player of the Year.

Of course, there will be questions over whether he can handle the step up.

But the omens are encouraging – the last Peterborough striker to go from League One to the Championship? Ivan Toney.

Silva seeks 'stability' at Fulham

Marco Silva says he is seeking 'stability' in his managerial career and thinks he has found the right fit with Fulham.

The Portuguese head coach succeeded Scott Parker in the Craven Cottage hotseat earlier this summer having been desperate to return to England following his spells with Hull City, Watford and Everton. He told Sky Sports that he was hoping to put down roots in London with his new employers:

"Definitely, definitely. Three clubs, but three different situations. Of course, we knew when I joined Hull, it was in the middle of the season and we took a risk to come to the Premier League because the club was in a difficult situation. I can tell you that was a really good moment for us as a technical staff, even if the end was not good enough. We didn't achieve that fantastic thing that we were really close to doing but the way people welcomed us in England. The Hull City fans, the city as well for us was something we will never forget.

"Of course, it was a matter of progress as well. We had some offers from Premier League and I went to Watford and Everton, but stability is something that I want for my career. I think I want it and Fulham needs some stability as well. We need as a technical staff to build something [for] longer than in the past and, for us, Fulham looks the right place to do it because they want to grow us a club. They want to do it. They are supporting us and the club needs some stability and some continuity as well. To be honest, I believe it is the right place to do it."
