City to move decisively for Sanchez

Manchester City are preparing the final assault for the transfer of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.

According to The Telegraph, the Citizens want to take advantage of the Chilean’s contractual situation and make a reduced bid, counting on Arsenal’s desire to cash in on the player. Aft上海夜生活er having made a bid of €70m in the summer, which was rejected by the Gunners, Manchester City will now offer only €23m for Sanchez, considering that his contract expires next summer and he can negotiate with any team in January.

Preview: Everton – Lyon

Lyon and Everton have not had the best of starts in the current Europa League season. The French team are second in Group E, with two points after two rounds, while their hosts today are bottom of the group, with just one point.

Flashscore presents the key facts before the match:

Both teams are yet to register a win in this season’s Europa League (EL) campaign. Everton squandered a home lead in the previous round vs a 10-man Apollon side, and previously to that they were embarrassed by Atalanta in a 3-0 away defeat.

Lyon, still without a win, have kept the ship steady with 2 draws. A win for either team would see their chances of qualification vastly improved, especially Everton, so expect this to be a hard fought fixture as neither team will want to lose.

Everton have never previously played Lyon, and have only played 2 such games against French opposition. Everton managed a 3-0 home victory and a goalless draw away to Lille in the ‘14/’15 EL campaign.

Former Manchester United winger, Memphis Depay, may feature for Lyon as they seek to gain their 1st group victory on English soil.

Lyon are unbeaten in their last 4 games, with a prolific record of 10 goals scored across said fixtures. 3 of Lyon’s last 4 games have ended with over 4.5 goals and this fixture looks to have similar potential for goals, given the pedigree of the 2 sides.

Nabil Fekir & Mariano Diaz have had the lion’s share of the goals in Ligue 1 for Lyon since losing their star man, Lacazette, to Arsenal during the summer. Both forwards sit on 7 goals each, Fekir bagged a brace against a strong Monaco side last weekend.

Ventura could not help applauding Isco

Italy lost 3-0 to Spain, but Isco’s performance left even his opponents in awe.

Italy’s manager Giampiero Ventura revealed that there was nothing he could do, but applaud Isco following the Spaniard’s sensational individual performance.

Spain won 3-0 in a World Cup qualifier at the Bernabeu on Saturday, with the Real Madrid star putting of a stunning performance during the first half. Isco’s showing was also backed by two goals and a ridiculous nutmeg against PSG midfielder Veratti.

“But not just Isco, there were other players with a lot of class too. You have to be humble to recognise it and we have to work in order to be competitive.”

Lukaku would cost \u00a3150m this summer insists Mourinho

The Red Devils boss believes Neymar’s switch to Paris Saint-Germain significantly boosted all prices on the market.

Jose Mourinho admitted that he was satisfied with Manchester United’s quick work on the market, sealing all important deals early on. The Portuguese tactician revealed that the people working at the Red Devils could feel that the market would go crazy this summer, and with N上海夜生活eymar joining Paris Saint-Germain for 222 million euros, they were proven right.

“I think we were very clever,” he told the Times. “We thought that something could happen that could change the market forever. Normally the last part of the market is less expensive, but this season, after Neymar everything changed – and changed for the worse in terms of prices.

“I think Lukaku on August 31 would have been £150m. Matic would have been £60m or £70m.Report: Mourinho rejects several offers amid Real Madrid talk Andrew Smyth – Jose Mourinho has reportedly turned down several job offers in Europe as he eyes up a potential shock return to Real Madrid.

“Lukaku and Matic, now, would have cost us £200m in total. But because we did it in the first part of the summer, it was much less. I think we did well in financial terms and well in preparation terms, getting them before the season started. That is not crucial but it is important.

“Neymar changed everything. If the biggest transfer in history had still been Pogba, I think Philippe Coutinho would now be in Barcelona at £101m.

“People look to the £200m figure now. Now the players of £20m became £40m, the players of £40m became £60m and everything changed.”

La Liga planning to organize matches abroad

The La Liga president is looking to expand the league’s global reach and plans to organize matches outside of Spain in the future.

Javier Tebas took part in the Soccerex Convention in Manchester and discussed the plans for development of the Spanish League: “La Liga is global entertainment and we want to grow the international appeal of La Liga.”

“As part of that effort we are discussing the option of playing some of the league matches outside of Spain. These discussions are still in early stages, but as La Liga, we support the idea”, Tebas was quoted by the Financial Times. Report: Mourinho rejects several offers amid Real Madrid talk Andrew Smyth – Jose Mourinho has reportedly turned down several job offers in Europe as he eyes up a potential shock return to Real Madrid.

This summer, Real Madrid and Barcelona played a pre-season match in Miami. It was the first time the two teams met outside Spain since 1982. The match attracted a crowd of 66.000 people in the stands of Hard Rock Stadium.

The match was part of the International Champions Cup, which is organi上海夜生活论坛zed by Relevent Sports, whose chairman said that their next step is to move from organizing friendly games to organizing competitive matches from different leagues in different parts of the world.

According to Deloitte, La Liga is currently third in Europe’s top leagues in terms of the generated revenue, only behind Premier League and Bundesliga. Last year, the Spanish League signed a domestic television rights deal worth €2,65bn. Although the amount represents a major improvement compared to the previous deals, they are still a long way behind Premier League, who sold their domestic tv rights for double the amount.

Chiellini to miss Italy’s clash with Spain

The Italian central defender will miss his team’s clash with Spain on Saturday, due to injury.

As reported by Marca, Chiellini suffered a calf injury in training an上海夜生活网d has already left the Italian squad. Squadra Azzurra will have to face Spain without one of their best defenders, in a match that will be decisive for the first spot in group G of the World Cup qualifiers.

Spain captain Sergio Ramos anticipated the clash in the pre-match press conference: “Italy are a great side, not just in defence, although they have always been renowned for being solid and difficult to beat, but they also have a lot of quality in attack.

Tomorrow so much is at stake, we’re playing for the right to be at the World Cup, but we’re at home, at the Bernabeu, which is an imposing stadium and I’m sure we’ll have a lot of support.

It’s going to be a special day for football fans, it’s one of the best games to see in the world, but we’ll try and stick with our usual playing philosophy to try and get the three points.”

Manchester United keen to sign one more player

Despite the arrival of Victor Lindelöf, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matić, United could see one more player joining the club this summer.

José Mourinho has reportedly asked the board of Manchester United to bring one more new face to Old Trafford. The Red Devils are already well past the £145m mark following the signing of their three new players. However, the Red Devils boss believes one more new face is required at Old Trafford.

According to Goal, Mourinho has admitted that he wants to make four new signings before the start of the 2017-18 campaign:

Shanghai SIPG director deems Bayern duo ‘too old’

Mads Davidsen says Ribéry and Robben are too old for the Chinese Super League.

Even though neither Ribéry nor Robben has made any comments on their future that involves a move the China, Shanghai SIPG director has made sure it remains this way. Ribéry, 34, and Robben,33, will not be able to make a move to China as ‘old’ players used to do a few years ago says Davidsen.

Speaking to Sport BILD, he said:

“It’s a misconception that makes me really angry when players in Europe believe they can freely choose the time to move to China.

“This was the situation three or four years ago but those times are over.Report: Fiorentina finally get a win George Patchias – At long last, after 18 games without a win, Fiorentina gets the “W” against Sampdoria.Fiorentina was rooted firmly to the bottom of Serie A….

“If Ribéry had an offer two or three years ago from China then that was his chance, but an ambitious Chinese te上海夜网am like Shanghai SIPG wouldn’t sign him or Robben now.

“Why should a Chinese club sign a 33 or 34-year-old when they can get 27-year-old stars like Axel Witsel or Alex Teixeira, or Oscar at 25?”

Robben claimed in January that he would never rule out a move to China, as he said:

“My family comes first, but the life experience, living elsewhere – in the USA, in China – might come. But maybe not. Maybe I’ll go back home [to the Netherlands]. I do not rule out anything.”

However, his words were part of an interview for Bayern Munich’s official website right after he signed a new contract and ensured he will not be leaving the club.

Mati\u0107 hopes to follow the steps of Vidi\u0107 in Manchester

The midfielder hopes to achieve the same level of success as his Serbian teammate Vidić.

New Manchester United signing Nemanja Matić is eager to have a fruitful career at Old Trafford, following his move from Chelsea in a transfer worth £40million. The 28-year-old played alongside Nemanja Vidic, former Manchester United captain, who won five Premier League and the Champions League during his spell in Manchester.

Speaking to MUTV, the Serbian said:

“Vidić was a great player, he was one of the players I looked to be similar to because he had a great career,

“He was the leader of our national team and it’s great to be at the same club, like him. I’ll try to do my best to repeat what he did. I know it’s going to be hard but I don’t want him to tell me one day ‘what are you doing there?’.”

“He’s a great coach. When I worked with him before, he always took the best from me and I improved a lot with him.

“When the coach wants you to come to the club, it gives you more motivation, more possibility and I will for sure give my best to show that I deserve to be at this club and part of the group.”

Nathan Ake believes playing football is the most important thing for someone his age.

The Netherlands international left Chelsea and signed for Bournemouth in a club-record deal of £20 million and he is not the only youngster to leave the Blues this summer. Dominic Solanke joined Liverpool, Berttrand Traoré signed for Lyon and Nathaniel Chalobah moved to Watford.

Mexico meet New Zealand in their second group-stage game of the Confederations Cup

Both sides will be seeking their first win at the tournamentWritten by – Nikolay Nikolov, June 19, 2017.

On Wednesday, Mexico will face New Zealand in Sochi’s Fisht Stadium and both teams will be under pressure. Juan Carlos Osorio’s team need a win to keep their hope of reaching the semi-finals alive, whereas All Whites know that another defeat will most certainly send them back home.

Mexico started the tournament with a good performance leading to a 2-2 draw against Portugal. On the other hand, New Zealand was dominated throughout their game against Russia and eventually lost 2-0, going ten games without a win at the Confederations Cup.

Having remained on the bench at the game with Portugal, Mexico’s captain Rafa Marquez is likely to start against New Zealand. If that happens, he will become the second-oldest player in the history of the Confederations Cup standing at 38 years and four months. He is the only player at the whole tournament with experience of winning it and has already stated that he plans on playing on for the national team until next year’s World Cup.Kane: Spurs out of excuses after shock Carabao Cup exit Andrew Smyth – Harry Kane concedes that Tottenham only have themselves to blame following a shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United.

Mino Raiola: “Donnarumma was bullied by Milan”

The young goalkeeper has shocked AC Milan with his decision to leave the club when his contract will expire. But now, the player’s agent has spoken about some of the reasons that led his client to this decision.Written by Cosmin Mihalescu. June 19, 2017.

Mino Raiola is very well known for his negotiation tactics, and it looks like this time he has surpassed himself with handling the situation of his young client. But the agent has now spoken about what made Donnarumma decide that he won’t continue with AC Milan.

According to Raiola, Donnarumma was ready to sign a contract extension with The Rossoneri and had no intention to leave. But the “hostile environment” created by the club made the young goalkeeper change his mind.

Donnarumma’s decision not to sign a new contract took everyone by surprise and angered a lot of fans, as some have gone so far as to throw fake money at him, during Italy’s debut at the Euro U-21 Championship.

And on Sunday, the player’s agent has decided to give his opinion on the situation, in an attempt to mov上海夜网e the blame to AC Milan. Speaking to the Italian press, Raiola said: “The situation had become too violent and hostile, so there was no way out. We took a decision that we didn’t want to take.”

“It was nothing to do with money. We were threatened. Donnarumma’s family was threatened, both with not playing anymore and threatened with death. You can’t keep a player by threatening him.”Kane: Spurs out of excuses after shock Carabao Cup exit Andrew Smyth – Harry Kane concedes that Tottenham only have themselves to blame following a shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United.

“Now there is a genuine risk he could miss a year. His quality makes that improbable, but this is already on the verge of bullying.”

“We never even got to talk about money or release clauses, because we were not allowed to get that far, nor to think of what was best for Gigio.”

“He was ready to sign a new contract, there were no doubts in his mind. They forced us to abandon the negotiations because of the environment created around him.”

“I take the responsibility. They forced us. It was Milan that lost Donnarumma. He said to me, ‘honestly Mino, I don’t feel it is right to carry on negotiations when these people are insulting and threatening me and my family”

The agent blamed Milan’s director Massimiliano Mirabelli for the poor handling of the situation: “For example, there was a banner in front of the club headquarters. A club should protect its players and remove the banner. A club should support a player and encourage his career, not threaten him with having to be left in the stands.”

Thomas M\u00fcller looking to set an amazing Bayern Munich record

Six-time Bundesliga winner has set his sights on the club all-time record of eight titlesWritten by – Nikolay Nikolov, June 16, 2017.

This season Thomas Müller won his sixth Bundesliga title with his team Bayern Munich. Now, the 27-year-old is looking forward to equalizing the club record of eight上海夜网 crowns held by few of the club’s legends- Mehmet Scholl, Oliver Kahn, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Philipp Lahm.

Müller signed for Bayern when he was just 11 years old and spent the next decade working his way to the first team. He became one of the club’s most iconic and successful players being still at the peak of his career.

His trophy winning list also includes four DFB Cups, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, FIFA World Cup and the World Cup Golden Boot.

Looking forward to break the club record, Müller couldn’t hide his desire while talking to reporters about it.Kane: Spurs out of excuses after shock Carabao Cup exit Andrew Smyth – Harry Kane concedes that Tottenham only have themselves to blame following a shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United.

“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to break the record,” he admitted in a recent interview with Sport Bild. “My contract with Bayern runs until 2021. If I haven’t reached eight Bundesliga titles by then, then clearly something has gone wrong. Our opponents don’t exactly gift-wrap the title for us, but we definitely want to win it every season.”

Recently, the retiring Philipp Lahm pointed Müller as one of the likeliest candidates to succeed him as club captain.

“Normally, either Manuel Neuer or Thomas Müller will become captain,” Lahm said, after hanging up his boots in May. “Their career paths have been similar to mine. They have Bayern Munich in their hearts and are leaders on and off the pitch.”

Remarkably, Müller has missed only 18 Bundesliga games over the last eight seasons. Moreover, Bayern have never lost a league game in which he has scored.

In the 2016-17 Bundesliga campaign, he scored 5 goals and provided 12 assists.

PSG plan world record bid for Gareth Bale

The Parisian club is going through changes after a failed season, and their new sports director is chasing ambitious targets.Written by Cosmin Mihalescu. June 14, 2017.

According to the Spanish press, Real Madrid have received a huge offer for Gareth Bale. If the bid will be accepted by Florentino Perez, Pogba’s transfer fee record would then be broken.

It is rumoured that PSG are ready to pay up to €190m for the services of the Welshman. It’s the same amount that the French club had ready for the transfer of Neymar. But the chances of a transfer of the Brazilian are very small, so the Parisians are now targeting Bale.Kane: Spurs out of excuses after shock Carabao Cup e上海夜生活网xit Andrew Smyth – Harry Kane concedes that Tottenham only have themselves to blame following a shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United.

If Perez will allow Gareth Bale to leave, this would probably ensure him the funds and the need to push for the transfer of Kylian Mbappe, who Real Madrid have long been targeting.

But PSG are not the only club interested in the services of Gareth Bale. Manchester United are also monitoring the Welshman’s situation and Jose Mourinho is a keen admirer of the ex-Spurs player, for whom Real paid €100m in 2013.

Gareth Bale has scored seven goals this La Liga season, being out with injury for a long period. He has also scored twice in Champions League. His current contract with Real Madrid runs until 2022.

Dani Alves – the assist master

The Brazilian left-back is the defender with the most assists recorded in the last ten years of Champions League. He also creates the most scoring opportunities.Written by Cosmin Mihalescu. May 4, 2017.

Although Wednesday night was Higuain’s night in the first leg of the Champi上海夜网ons League semi-finals between Monaco and Juventus, the Argentinian striker has a lot to be grateful for to his Brazilian teammate.

Both of the Juventus’ goals started from Dani Alves, who provided two assists and reached an amazing number for a defender: 25 assists in Champions League. For the past ten years, only Cristiano Ronaldo (29) surpasses the Brazilian right-back. Messi is just behind him with 23.

Celebrating his 34th birthday in two days, Alves was magnificent at Stade Louis II. He provided two assists to Higuain. The first one was an amazing back heel pass after a 50 metres run and the other one was a pinpoint cross. Never in his career has Alves managed two assists in one Champions League game, prior to last night’s match.Inter Milan V Lazio: Players to Watch Taimoor Khan – Inter Milan are set to host Lazio at the San Siro on Thursday and the game is definitely going to be an exciting affair…

But Alves’ records do not stop here. In the ten seasons he has appeared in the Champions League, he is the defender or midfielder that had the most influence on his teams’ attacking actions. The Brazilian right-back has managed 25 assists for his colleagues, more than any other defender or midfielder in the last ten years.

In the current Champions League season, Alves has created 27 goal scoring opportunities – he is the first one in the top of most goal scoring chances created.

Dani Alves has won 28 European trophies in his career: 23 with Barcelona and 5 with Sevilla. He is on track to winning his first three trophies with Juventus: Serie A title, Italian Cup and Champions League.

Besides his amazing assists record, Alves has also scored nine goals in his ten years of Champions League football.

After having played an important role in Manchester City’s second part of the season, Guardiola is looking into the possibility of keeping Yaya Toure for another season.

Although he has been linked with moves to China lately, where he could definitely earn as much as his current £230,000 a week, Toure wants to stay in England, as he feels he can still contribute in top football.

But in order to do so, he would need to accept a huge wage cut. At least if he wants to continue with Manchester City. The club are preparing to offer him a new deal, with a weekly wage of around £100,000.

Although Toure had a rough start of the season, due to frictions between his agent and Pep Guardiola, Yaya has since then apologized and played an important role in City’s campaign. And while Guardiola is looking to add several players to his squad, he is willing to consider keeping the 33-year-old as well, due to his experience and popularity in the team.

Another area that needs improvement at Bayern Munich is the right-back role and Reschke thinks he has also found a solution for this 上海夜网problem.
