Manchester United Release Radamel Falcao, Striker Plans To Stay In England

Manchester United have confirmed the news that they will not extend Radamel Falcao’s loan deal beyond this season. The club had procured the services of  Falcao last summer on the transfer deadline day. He was brought on loan from French club AS Monaco. A lot was expected from this star striker who had a sky-high reputation before this season. Unfortunately, the Manchester United stint proved to be a nightmare for the Colombian international who just managed to score 4 goals in 29 Premier League appearances. The Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has wished Radamel Falcao success for his future endeavours speaking to the club website. He said, “Falcao is a top professional and a good human being.

It was never in doubt though, Chelsea came back with 3 goals from their two main strikers, Loic Remy bagging a well deserved brace. In the end, it wasnt about the sccoreline or the nature of the victory today, it was all about John Terry lifting that Barclays Premier League trophy to officially begin the Blues’ reign as champions of England. It had a typical end-of-season feel to it, but the game was anything but a dull affair. The visitors picked a strong side to begin […] Read more »

CHELSEA FC V/S SUNDERLAND AFC Stamford Bridge, London Sunday, 24th May; 1500 GMT *** There will be a party atmosphere at Stamford Bridge on Sunday – and for a change, it’ll be both teams in the same mood, albeit for completely different reasons. The home side will be officially crowned champions on their own turf for the first time since 2010. Among the presence of many of the players who helped them get the trophy – including players who left in January – and its jubilant fans, Chelsea FC will become the newest holders of the Barclays Premier League trophy – their fifth overall, fourth Premier League crown. The relaxed atmosphere also means that some of the Blues’ youth academy players will be getting a run, with many of their first team unavailable. The away side, on the other hand, will be celebrating because their Wednesday night draw against Arsenal meant that they are safe from relegation and will live […] Read more »

Three Potential European Destinations For Petr Cech

Managers rarely find themselves in the luxurious position of having two top quality goalkeepers to choose from, but Jose Mourinho may have to accept that veteran Petr Cech deserves to be given regular first-team action elsewhere. The 32-year-old has been a wonderful servant for Chelsea since arriving in 2004, with Cech playing a pivotal role in the considerable success that the club have enjoyed throughout the last decade. Mourinho holds Cech in high regard and would prefer to keep him at Stamford Bridge, but with Thibault Courtois establishing himself as the club’s number one this season, it has forced the Czech Republic international to consider moving on to pastures new. There will be no shortage of takers during the summer transfer market, with Bookies already naming a number of clubs across Europe who are lining up to secure his services. It would certainly within Chelsea’s best interests not to let Cech go to a Premier League rival and boost their […] Read more »
