Reports from Spain suggest Real Madrid have placed a team of scouts in a VAR-type nerve centre, peering at screens all the better to “monitor” the movements of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho and RB Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haaland. They won’t have seen much of the 19-year-old Englishman over the weekend after he was dropped from Dortmund’s squad as punishment for returning 24 hours late from international duty with England, the latest in a series of time-keeping offences. Manchester United are also understood to be keeping tabs on the two youngsters. Manchester City are preparing to offer Raheem Sterling a new and improved deal worth £450,000 per week to keep any potential suitors – yes, you again Real Madrid – from trying to turn his head. Elsewhere in the city, Manchester United are considering making a move for former Liverpool player Emre Can. The German midfielder’s move to Juventus just hasn’t worked out and after a … [Read more...] about Football transfer rumours: Jadon Sancho and Erling Braut Haaland to Real Madrid?
I knew about Liverpool, but I didn’t know that much. I didn’t know about the magic of Anfield. The energy and the passion of the Kop. The beauty of a night where the whole stadium is rocking. All of that, and so much more, was going to be new for me. It was a big step to take at the age of 22. But I was ready for the challenge – I was ready to absorb and to learn as quickly as possible. Learning fast was something I was used to. At my first professional club, Real Sociedad, I never played in the cadets, or even the youth team – instead, I went straight into the reserve team. How could I have been ready for that? It was thanks to Antiguoko – a team from San Sebastián, where I had already spent almost 10 years as a player. It was not a professional club, but it worked very well. We had very good teams, with players like Mikel Arteta, Aritz Aduriz, Andoni Iraola and my brother Mikel. At Antiguoko, everything was about the ball, about technique, and about … [Read more...] about Xabi Alonso: ‘When I finished playing, I could not leave football behind’
Manchester City are stepping up their pursuit of Napoli’s Fabián Ruiz and are sending a scout to the Champions League game against Salzburg on Wednesday night to watch the Spaniard in action. The 23-year-old was named as the best player of the Under-21 European Championship last summer as Spain won their fifth title and he has impressed in Serie A since joining Napoli from Real Betis in 2018. City, however, face competition for the Spaniard from Barcelona and Real Madrid, who are both keeping an eye on the development of a player who can play centrally or on the left of midfield and has been likened to the current City player David Silva. He made his Spain debut in June and has earned five caps for his country. Napoli paid the buyout clause of €30m (£25.5m) when they signed him from Betis last year but will expect a significant return on that investment if he leaves in the summer. The Napoli chairman, Aurelio De Laurentiis, said last week: “I paid €30m … [Read more...] about Manchester City interested in Fabián Ruiz but face Barcelona and Real battle
Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 700th career goal when he converted a 72nd-minute penalty in Portugal’s Euro 2020 qualifier defeat to Ukraine. The 34-year-old has scored 95 for his country, 450 for Real Madrid, 118 for Manchester United, 32 for Juventus and five for Sporting. Portugal were beaten 2-1 by Ukraine in the Group B match, a result which meant Ukraine qualified for next summer’s finals. Ukraine top the group on 19 points from seven games, eight more than the second-placed European champions Portugal, who have a game in hand and should still qualify given their last two games are against Lithuania and Luxembourg. Third-paced Serbia are on 10 points from six games after an Aleksandar Mitrovic double gave them a 2-1 win in Lithuania. Luxembourg have four points from six games and the Lithuanians prop the group with one point from seven matches. In Kiev, first-half goals by Roman Yaremchuk and Andriy Yarmolenko took Ukraine into a 2-0 lead before Ronaldo reduced the … [Read more...] about Euro 2020 roundup: Ronaldo hits 700th career goal, Giroud on target again
