Alex Sandro attracting interest from Chelsea, Man United and PSG

An exclusive report by TuttoJuve has revealed that the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, and Manchester United are keen to sign Alex Sandro from Juventus. The left-back has established himself as one the best in the game in recent years but with Juventus' underperformance this season, a major squad overhaul could be set to occur in Turin. The old guard at the club may have to stand down for new and fresh legs to come and Sandro might be one of the high-profile casualties. However, the Brazilian has nothing to fear if this should be the case as he is not short of elite options in the transfer market. READ: Disappointing!

Disappointing! Ray Parlour blasts Arsenal after Europa League exit

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour has expressed his disappointment with the manner of the club's exit from the Europa League at the hands of Villareal on Thursday night. According to him, Arsenal were fortunate to return from the first leg only a goal down and with a vital away goal but added that none of the players took the game by the scruff of the neck in the reverse fixture at the Emirates. Arsenal currently sit 9th in the Premier League with 4 games to go and the Europa League presented the opportunity to qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League. With this exit, their chances of participating in Europe next season just got slimmer. Parlour also added that the inability of Mikel Arteta's side to come out tops in a game even when they are not playing well has cost t...

Eriksen happy at Inter after understanding Conte’s style

Inter Milan midfielder Christain Eriksen has warned rivals of the club that they are building a dynasty. It can be recalled that Eriksen started slowly under Antonio Conte but is now reinvigorated after getting to grips with the methods of the Italian tactician. He didn't have a bright start to life at Inter after his move from Tottenham Hotspur worth £17.5million in January 2020, as there were reports that he would leave the club during this year's winter transfer window. Eriksen had dropped down the pecking order of stars at the club under Conte as reports in Italy suggested that the latter was disappointed with the midfielder's output. In the same month, the CEO of the club Giuseppe Marotta suggested that Inter were willing to listen to offers for the Dane.  READ: Real Madri...

Real Madrid reportedly set to offload Hazard

Rumors are rife that Real Madrid are ready to cut their losses as they prepare to let go of Eden Hazard. The 30-year-old attacker joined Los Blancos from Chelsea in 2019 in a deal worth £103.5m. The Belgian was highly rated at the time and had established himself as one of the most exciting players in the Premier League and Europe as a whole. However, he has failed to replicate his Chelsea form at Madrid and therefore failed to live up to expectations with his time at Real Madrid thus far being blighted by recurring injuries under Zinedine Zidane. It was hoped that Hazard would help in replacing Cristiano Ronaldo after his departure to Juventus but this hasn't been the case. The Belgium international has made just 40 appearances for Los Merengues in all competitions and has just 4...

Agent – Bale has been through a tough ride at Tottenham

According to Gareth Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett, the Welshman has overcome an unnecessary tough ride in his season-long loan spell at Tottenham Hotspur and is now playing at his best. Bale, 31, made a return to Spurs in the summer on loan from Real Madrid but was just a peripheral figure with only six Premier League starts under Jose Mourinho before the Portuguese manager was fired in April. Since then, he has started two Premier League games under interim boss Ryan Mason and has scored 4 goals including a hat-trick against Sheffield United on Sunday. When asked if the Welshman would extend his stay at the club in a chat with Sky Sports, Barnett said: "Nothing has been discussed at the moment. "He had a tough ride and I don't think that should have been necessary. "He came a...

Arsenal hold the key to an all-English Europa League final

Eyes will be on the semifinal games of the 2020/21 UEFA Europa League semifinal tonight when Manchester United face Roma at Stadio Olimpico in what I daresay is a mere formality while Arsenal welcome Villareal to the Emirates with both sides having all to play for.

Manchester United beat Roma 6:2 at Old Trafford a week ago whilst Arsenal lost 2:1 to Villareal in Spain on the same night.

Two elite tacticians and two big money clubs in an all-English UCL final

Manchester City and Chelsea covered themselves in glory in the semifinals of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League and have set a date of May 29 for an all-Premier League UCL final. The Citizens and the Blues progressed after beating Paris Saint-Germain 4:1 on aggregate and Real Madrid 3:1 on aggregate respectively in an impressive fashion. The two Premier clubs were dominant against their rivals and if the first leg result was considered a one-off, the second leg results confirmed their superiority over their opponents. Did anyone really see an all-English UCL final some months back? And more so with the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea leading the charge? It can be recalled that Pep Guardiola's men struggled at the start of the season before they got their acts right and star...

Carragher – Dias is the best defender in the Premier League

Jamie Carragher has hailed Ruben Dias as the best center-back in the Premier League and even rates him higher than Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk. The 23-year-old has helped in the transformation of Man City's defensive fortunes since joining from Benfica in a deal worth £62million in the summer. Dias has brought organization and leadership to the backline. He has played his role perfectly in the successes that the Citizens have enjoyed thus far. Dias has been one of the best players in the Premier League this season and has helped in putting Pep Guardiola's men one win away from the 2020/21 Premier League title, as well as in the UEFA Champions League final for the first time. The player has been so good that Carragher loves the Portuguese star despite City's rivalry with Liverpo...

Solskjaer urges Man United fans to be civilized

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged Manchester United fans to be more civilized with their protests after the recent demonstration against the club's American owners was marred by violence, resulting in the postponement of the Premier League clash against Liverpool. Whilst acting as the club's spokesman on Wednesday amid the silence of the Glazer family regarding the incident, the Norwegian manager defended the right of the supporters to protest. He also admitted that there was a need for better dialogue between the fans and the leadership of the club to rebuild their strained relationship. However, Solskjaer pointed out that things went too far outside Old Trafford as police with batons clashed with fans, as some of them breached the biosecure perimeter of the stadium and got on the p...
