Arsenal and Liverpool will have to activate Luiciano Viett’s release clause of  £14.5m Media reports in Spain suggest that Premier League giants Arsenal FC and Liverpool FC will have to spend £14.5m to rope in Villarreal’s Argentine striker Luciano Vietto.

Speculations regarding Viett’s possible transfer  gained momentum a few days back when Vietto’s agent Jorge Cyterszpiler had revealed that a lot of clubs are watching his client’s progress and the youngster may leave the club in the summer. He was quoted: “We know that a lot of big clubs are watching Luciano Vietto. There is a lot of competition for him. I think he could leave Villarreal […] Read more »

Manchester United keeper David De Gea is yet to decide on his future but Iker Casillas has dropped massive hints at the Spaniard’s move to Real Madrid. The David de Gea saga is yet to reach its conclusion, as neither the keeper nor the clubs involved have publicly announced where the Spaniard’s future lies.

Manchester United Set To Place A £40million Bid For Karim Benzema

Manchester United are interested in signing Real Madrid’s star striker Karim Benzema for £40million. Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Real Madrid’s star striker Karim Benzema in the summer. It is believed that United will place a huge bid of £40million to acquire the Frenchman’s services in the coming season. Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is likely to enhance his attack force after the team returned to Champions League. United have already released on loan striker Radamel Falcao and will not sign him on a permanent deal. Robin van Persie too was not at his best in this season. The Dutch forward remained out of action on several occasions due to injury concerns and his performance was also not up to the mark. Karim Benzema had scored 15 goals in 27 La Liga appearances this season for Real Madrid and provided 10 assists. In comparison, Robin van Persie scored 10 goals in 27 games and managed to […] Read more »

Real Madrid press conference

Liverpool Have Contacted Ancelotti For Managerial Job: Marca

Liverpool FC have contacted Carlo Ancelotti, according to Spanish newspaper Marca. The 55 year-old was sacked as manager of Real Madrid after two seasons in charge of the Spanish club. The Italian led Real to victory in the Spanish Cup before claiming the club’s 10th Champions League last season. But this Real Madrid ended the season without silverware as they were knocked out by Juventus in the Champions League semi-finals, while Barcelona won La Liga. A season without a significant trophy to show is not enough at Real Madrid, as seen previously so Ancelotti’s sacking didn’t seem so bizarre and was expected. Napoli and former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is the favourite to take over the vacant role once the Italian season ends. Benitez has been linked with a move to Liverpool largely because of sentimental reasons and because the Spaniard has his family living in Merseyside. Jurgen Klopp has been the other widely used name linking him with a move to Merseyside. Its […] Read more »

Agent Alerts Liverpool And Arsenal As El Shaarawy Looks To Leave Milan

Stephan El Shaarawy has faced abrupt dip netting only thrice throughout the course of the season after being billed to achieve great heights with AC Milan following his move from Genoa four years ago. The Italian striker has set his sights on a Premier League move this summer, according to his agent brother. Injuries have been a concern for the 22-year-old as a fractured foot thwarted his chances limiting his appearances to seventeen this season, but, at such a tender age, he is still touted to shine as Arsenal and Liverpool are known to be keeping tabs on him. While speaking to Sky Sport Italia, Manuel El Shaarawy stated that his brother might fancy a move to England while also admitting his interest in the progress of the Rossoneri, who have finished thirty seven points behind champions Juventus. “Would Stephan like to go abroad? I never disguised that I’d like to see him play overseas, for example in the Premier […] Read more »

Pochettino's side crashed to another home defeat

Mauricio Pochettino: Is he another one season manager?

It is a known fact that teams with a consistent manager have always accomplished better results in the league as compared to teams where there have been constant changes. Tottenham too in the recent past were consistent when under the managership of Harry Redknapp, but after and before that, Tottenham have never given any manager a reasonable amount of time (more than 3 seasons) to settle, acclimatize to the players and the league in order to produce some concrete results. Will Mauricio Pochettino also be a one season manager or is he going to stay and help Spurs improve. Pre-Pochettino Tottenham had just ended a brilliant run under the English Manager Harry Redknapp. Qualifying for two champions league’s back to back, playing one and conceding one to Chelsea who finished 5th but won the competition, Spurs were left manager-less after just few games of the 2012 season after failing to agree to personal terms. In the next two years Spurs […] Read more »
