Klopp has kept his promise to restore Liverpool’s glory days

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has carved a niche for himself as the man who ended the club's Premier League title drought. He had been putting measures in place to ensure this was the case over the years after his appointment in October 2015. Liverpool contracted the German from former club Borussia Dortmund to replace Brendan Rodgers and this decision has proved to be a masterstroke going by the club's achievements in recent years. They've now won the Premier League for the 2019/20 football season and this was preceded by a UEFA Champions League triumph in the 2018/19 season, UEFA Supercup triumph, and FIFA Club World Cup triumph. The Reds are the best team in England and this cannot be argued. Jurgen Klopp has transformed Liverpool and has returned them to their former glory days....

Chelsea set to complete Timo Werner deal this weekend

Chelsea are expected to complete their move for Germany international Timo Werner by next week as the deal appears to have been slowed down by logistics of completing a medical with COVID-19 restrictions in place. The RB Leipzig forward's release clause reaches its expiration on Monday with the move already being considered as a major coup for Chelsea boss Frank Lampard. Chelsea have already secured a £37million deal for Hakim Ziyech from Eredivisie giants Ajax since February and they are reportedly confident in securing another deal by signing England international and Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell.

Coman ready to fight for place if Bayern sign Sane

Kingsley Coman has revealed he will have no problem if Bayern Munich sign Germany international Leroy Sane from Manchester City this summer, and has vowed to fight for his place in the team. Sane has been continually linked with a move to Bayern Munich over the past year and the speculation is heightening as the summer transfer window approaches. The two clubs reportedly reached an advanced stage in talks last week although a final deal is yet to be agreed as the Citizens are insisting on a fee in the region of €70 million. If a deal is agreed and the move materializes, Leroy Sane will be expected to feature on the left-wing in Hansi Flick's team. This role has been owned by Coman for the majority of the ongoing 2019/20 season. READ: BEST FOOTBALL BETTING TIPS FOR TODAY READ...

Martin Odegaard will not return to Real Madrid

Real Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay has stated that Martin Odegaard will not return to Real Madrid and is desperate to keep the Norwegian starlet for another season.  Odegaard has been impressive in his season-long loan at the club with 7 goals and 8 assists to his name in the 28 La Liga games this season.

'When you stay at Real, if you stay, you have to be convinced, like when he came last year. Convinced that it is the best option for next season. 'The decision is up to him and I think he will stay.'

Setien reveals plans for Messi and Suarez ahead of La Liga restart

Barcelona boss Quique Setien has disclosed his plans for the club's return to action on Saturday against Real Mallorca, as well as the careful approach that will be adopted in handing out playing time to Luis Suarez.

"Luis Suarez could play from the start, but I find it reckless to make him play the whole game," Setien said in a chat with Tot Costa, via Barca Blaugranes.

Bale not interested in a Premier League return

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale is not interested in returning to the Premier League and is ready to finish his career at Real Madrid. This was revealed by his agent Jonathan Barnett. However, with the various controversies that have sprung up in his time at the Bernabeu, it's very difficult seeing the Welshman hang his boots at Real Madrid. Well, never say never because things change. The Welshman is one player that has divided the opinions of Real Madrid fans as some are cool with him while others are not. This is due to a perceived lack of commitment and his inability to be readily available due to his poor injury record. The Welshman was very close to a departure from Madrid and a move to Chinses club Jiangsu Suning last year but the deal didn't materialize. READ: Crespo wa...
