Chelsea interested in signing PSG’s Kurzawa on loan

Chelsea are interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa on loan, with the 29-year-old currently out of favour at the French club.

Arsenal give Barcelona, Coutinho Conditions to sign midfielder

Arsenal are interested in signing Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona this January, but only on their terms, according to SPORT. The Gunners are looking to reinforce their midfield, with the team firmly in the fight for top four places in the Premier League. However, Mikel Arteta will not be arm-twisted in the winter transfer market. Arsenal want a loan deal for Coutinho without an obligation to buy the Brazilian.

Why Man City turned down Opportunity to Sign Chelsea star

It has been revealed that Manchester City turned down the chance to sign Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid before Chelsea did. The Spain international eventually joined Chelsea on loan on transfer deadline day with an option to make the deal permanent for £30m at the end of the season. According to Daily Star, Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola was not interested in bringing Saul to his squad, so the deal was rejected. According to the newspaper, Guardiola’s side were approached by Atletico Madrid, who proposed a swap involving Bernardo Silva in a player-plus-cash move. But the deal was of no interest to Man City as they were looking for £40m for Silva. And this made it very easy for Chelsea to get their own deal done and now Saul will be competing for a plac...

Arsenal terminate Willian’s contract after just 12 months at the Club

Arsenal have confirmed the club have mutually terminated Willian's contract after his 12-months stay at the club. The Brazilian joined Mikel Arteta's side on a free transfer last summer but struggled in 2020-21 season, scoring only one goal in 37 appearances. Arsenal have been looking to offload Willian this summer and Corinthians have been interested in ending his Gunners nightmare.  But his wages, believed to be more than £220,000 per week was one of the frustrating issues in negotiations. The former Chelsea star is now set to complete a move back to his native Brazil after the two parties reached an agreement to terminate the remaining two years left on his contract, saving the club around £20million in wages. In a statement, Arsenal said: 'We have reached a mutual agree...

Mbappe: Ronaldo not an Option – PSG

Paris Saint-Germain president, Nasser Al Khelaifi, has made it clear that the club is not interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus. The Ligue 1 giants are likely to be in the market for Kylian Mbappe’s replacement. PSG may accept Real Madrid’s new bid for Mbappe, with the 22-year-old desperate to play for Los Blancos. Ronaldo is also keen to leave Juventus this summer and has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City. When asked if PSG could hijack a potential deal for the 36-year-old, Al Khelaifi told BeIN Sports: “Signing Cristiano Ronaldo is not even a discussion.” Al Khelaifi also insisted they have not spoken to Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, at any point this summer.

Mourinho Identifies another Chelsea player for Roma

AS Roma boss, Jose Mourinho is planning to make Ruben Loft-Cheek his second signing from his former club, Chelsea. The Portuguese boss is planning to raid Chelsea as he looks to strengthen his Roma squad for the new season. Reports in Italy said the Special One wants to bring Loftus-Cheek to the Serie A side. This is after the Italian side completed the signing of Tammy Abraham from Chelsea last week. Loftus-Cheek has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer after a disappointing loan spell at Fulham last season. Fulham was relegated from the Premier League and the England midfielder’s chances of forcing his way into Thomas Tuchel’s plans look very slim indeed. Corriere Dello Sport reports that Roma is interested, although tim...

Cristiano Ronaldo injured, leaves Juventus training

Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, had to leave training early today after sustaining an injury to his right arm. Ronaldo’s future at the Serie A side remains uncertain. The 36-year-old asked to be left on the bench for their league opener on Sunday, amid speculation he is trying to engineer a move away. With just one week remaining in the summer transfer window, interested clubs must act quickly, but any injury may derail the possibility of a transfer. Ronaldo was in training on Wednesday but had to be accompanied off the pitch by medics after damaging his right arm following a challenge from defender, Alex Sandro. If the injury requires further treatment, then it could jeopardise any potential exit for the player.

John Terry Advises Chelsea star against Joining Premier League Rivals

Chelsea legend, John Terry, has advised the club’s defender, Kurt Zouma, not to leave Stamford Bridge for Premier League rivals, Tottenham Hotspur. Zouma has been linked with a move to join Tottenham this summer. Tottenham have already signed Atalanta defender, Cristian Romero, on loan but are looking to recruit one more centre-back before the summer transfer window closes. Nuno Espírito Santo’s side will have to battle West Ham United and Roma, who are all interested in the French star. Zouma is understood to be keen on staying in the Premier League and remaining in London, which would boost Spurs’ hopes. Chelsea are expected to accept at least a £20million fee for Zouma. Reacting to the development, Terry warned Zouma about moving to Tottenham. In res...

Singer Temmie Ovwasa reveals why she cannot Stop Engaging in Homosexuality

Temmie Ovwasa, popularly known as YBNL Princess, has revealed why she cannot stop engaging in homosexuality. The singer explained that she cannot go from being homosexual to being in a heterosexual relationship because of all the benefits that comes from dating a woman. Listing the benefits, she said she can't go from "multiple orgasms, genuine concern and full autonomy" from a female partner because the woman knows she doesn't own her, to sex with an "immature man child" who "can't wash his ass or keep a straight woman interested." She added that after years of being with women, being with a straight man is a "downgrade".

What Ronaldo would have done if Messi didn’t Leave Barcelona for PSG – Bonucci

Juventus defender, Leonardo Bonucci, has insisted that Cristiano Ronaldo would have stayed with the Italian side even if Lionel Messi did not leave Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain. According to Bonucci, Messi’s next club has no bearing on Ronaldo’s future. Ronaldo had been linked with a move away from Juve throughout the summer after entering the final year of his contract with PSG among the clubs said to be interested. But a move to the Ligue 1 giants now looks improbable, with Messi flying to Paris to finalise a move to PSG. “I think Cristiano would have stayed even if Messi did not go to PSG,” Bonucci told Gazzetta dello Sport on Tuesday. “For us he is an added value, and I am sure that this year, more so than in past years, he will help us to go far wit...

Bayern Munich Confirm Interest in Signing Erling Haaland

Bayern Munich’s sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, has admitted they are interested in signing Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. Haaland netted a hat-trick as Dortmund began their German Cup defence with a 3-0 win over Wehen Wiesbaden on Saturday. It took his tally to a stunning 60 goals in 60 games for the Bundesliga side. Dortmund have slapped a £150m price tag on the Norway striker’s head to ward off interest from Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid. But Salihamidzic has suggested Bayern could be preparing to pounce at the end of the 2021/2022 season, when the striker’s £68million release clause comes into play. “This is a top player who the whole world probably wants,” said Salihamidzic, quoted by Sport1 . “Of course we...
