US Soccer Federation offers identical contracts to their men’s and women’s teams after discrimination lawsuit over equal pay

The US Soccer Federation has announced it has offered identical contract proposals to the players associations of the men's and women's national teams.

‘I don’t see Mbappe leaving’ – Leonardo unconcerned about PSG star’s future amid Real Madrid links

The Parc des Princes chief says the striker has a "deep relationship" with the French club and won't be departing for free next summer Leonardo is not concerned about Kylian Mbappe's future amid ongoing rumours linking him with Real Madrid, with the Paris Saint-Germain sporting director insisting "I don't see him leaving at the end of this season". Madrid attempted to lure Mbappe away from PSG in the summer transfer window by submitting three huge bids, the last of which reportedly came in at €220 million (£190m/£262m) on deadline day. The Ligue 1 giants rejected the Blancos' advances despite the striker entering the final year of his contract, and Leonardo hopes  a prized asset will remain at Parc des Princes beyond the 2021-22 campaign.

‘Lingard holds the cards’ – Man Utd star could still join West Ham in January, hints Pearce

  The Hammers assistant coach has expressed his belief that the midfielder is "too good a player to be sat on the outside" at Old Trafford Stuart Pearce has hinted that Jesse Lingard could still join West Ham in January, claiming the Manchester United star "holds all the cards". Lingard returned to United in June after a successful six-month loan spell at West Ham, where he scored nine goals in 16 Premier League games to help David Moyes' side qualify for the Europa League. Moyes openly admitted that the Hammers were eager to sign the 28-year-old on a permanent deal, but they failed to do so before the summer deadline, and his assistant has suggested that the midfielder made the wrong choice over his future.

Lingard rejects new Man United contract

Manchester United forward, Jesse Lingard, has rejected a new contract at the club, according to ESPN. Lingard is seeking assurances about his first team prospects this season.

The England international is determined to find regular football in order to keep his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad ahead...

Salah demands £500,000-a-week deal to overtake Ronaldo as EPL highest-paid player

Liverpool winger, Mohammed Salah wants the club to pay him £500,000-a-week so he can become the highest earner in the Premier League, the UK Mirror reports. Reds boss, Jurgen Klopp has already confirmed the club are in talks to extend Salah’s contract. The Egyptian’s current deal has less than two years left to run.

If the Anfield club agrees to his demand, Salah will overtake Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo as the highest-paid player in the UK. Ronaldo agreed a two-year deal worth £480,000 a week on his return to Old Trafford last week. Klopp is anxious for Salah to co...
