What Should Dele Alli Do If Real Madrid Come Calling?

Dele Alli is one of the best young players in the Premier League. In fact, the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder is one of the best young players in the whole of Europe. The England international has progressed massively since his move to Tottenham in 2015 and has established himself as a key player in Mauricio Pochettino’s team.

Alli’s development and quality has reportedly attracted the attention of Real Madrid, who are claimed to be lining up a £50 million bid for the 20-year-old. Madrid have signed players from Spurs before – remember Luka Modric and Gareth Bale? – and many fans of the North London club would be worried about this speculation. After all, when Madrid come calling, it is hard to say no for any footballer. Continue reading What Should Dele Alli Do If Real Madrid Come Calling?

Smalling and Shaw Unavailable for Spurs, Says José Mourinho

José Mourinho has confirmed that Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw will not be available for the Premier League game against Tottenham this weekend.


Manchester United take on Spurs hoping to secure only their second league victory in the last six matches. After four draws and one in the last five games, United are certainly in desperate need of three points in order to give them a boost in the top four race. Mourinho recently confirmed that there was little chance of United going on to win the title this season after falling 13 points behind leaders Chelsea even before the halfway stage in the campaign.

Smalling has not played for United since the 4-0 loss against Chelsea back in October. The defender was criticised by Mourinho for not being able to play through the pain barrier. It was the same case with left back Luke Shaw, who has struggled to win the favour of Mourinho ever since the Portuguese took charge from Louis van Gaal in the summer.

Pep’s Dream Start in Danger of Turning into a Nightmare

It is almost a year since it was announced that Pep Guardiola was to take over from Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City. The statement was met with universal delight from City fans and a certain amount of jealousy from rival supporters. If there is such a thing as a risk-free appointment in football management, this seemed like the nearest thing to it.

His spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich saw the Spaniard amass 6 league titles, 2 Champions League trophies, 7 domestic cups, 3 UEFA Super Cups and 3 FIFA Club World Cups. All of that was achieved in just 7 seasons. Continue reading Pep’s Dream Start in Danger of Turning into a Nightmare

BAYERN BOSS COMMENTS ON SCHWEINSTEIGER ISSUE

Bayern Munich boss Uli Hoeness says that Manchester United midfielder Schweinsteiger should ensure they bleed for the way he has been treated this season under Jose Mourinho.


Louis van Gaal signed the retired German international from the Bundesliga last term. His debut season was interrupted by fitness and poor form. The player’s showing at the Euro 2016 must have forced Mourinho to overlook the player, particularly with the additions during the summer.

After several attacks from German nationals, Mourinho included him in the squad that played West Ham at Old Trafford. However, a return to action might not be on the offer but a way of easing the player through a transfer when the window opens in January with many clubs already interested. The 32-year old has just a goal to his name after 31 games so far but he could still feature for a year or two in America.

“I would let them bleed until the last day and then day goodbye. I would play Golf every month, offer United my work and accompany Ana Ivanovic to Tennis matches. A club like that should be punished,” Hoeness said he would do if he were in Schweinsteiger’s position. The German executive implored Schweinsteiger to see of hiss contract with United whilst receiving his wages without any ‘work’ as punishment to the club.

Mourinho wants players to go to extremes

Manchester United recently secured a much needed 3-1 triumph over Swansea City on November 6 as this victory was particularly important for Jose Mourinho and his squad due to the fact that they had not been able to secure a league goal since August 27 when they defeated Hull City.

This recent triumph over Swansea City is what Manchester United needed to start getting back on track and not slip any further behind in the Premier League standings which is something that has been happening on a more regular basis in recent times.

1 day after this victory, Jose Mourinho took the chance to speak to the media about his squad and their current situation and the Portuguese stated that he wants to see his players giving it everything they have and going to their limits.

RVP HONOURED FOR PREMIER LEAGUE VOLLEY

Former Arsenal and Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has been honoured at a Legends of Football event in London for having scoring the best ever goal of the Premier League era.

His first time volley against Aston Villa was voted by players who had scored more than 100 goals in the top flight division.

The event was attended by Red Devils legend Ryan Giggs, Newcastle legend Alan Shearer, Reds former star Michael Owen and others. The event raised funds for charity Nordoff Robins, with the Premier League donating £100,000. The ‘flying’ Dutchman then gifted the cause with a £20,000 donation at this year’s dinner that celebrated 25 years of the Premier League.

Dion Dublin, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Matt Le Tissier, Les Ferdinand and Emile Heskey were also pictured at the event.

Mourinho to meet Guardiola in EFL fourth round

Manchester United are set to meet with archrival Man City in the fourth round of the English Football League (EFL). United defeated their third round opponents Northampton 3-1 on Wednesday.


Mourinho already tasted defeat when he faced off with Pep Guardiola in the Premier League this term. City comfortably trounced United 2-1 at Old Trafford.

The win over Northampton ends the successive defeats United have suffered in the Premier League and in Europe. The win didn’t come without its own share of imperfections, but at least the team got the job done. On the other hand, City breezed through a 2-1 win against Swansea City in a keenly contested game at Liberty Stadium.

Sam Allardyce may soon get into Clubs Bad Books

Sam Allardyce hints he would not mind getting in the bad books of the club bosses if that is what it takes for him to be able to pick the squad he desires.


Allardyce, in all likeliness, is going to have Luke Shaw in the line-up he discloses this weekend.
It’s not been long since Shaw has resumed playing and Jose Mourinho would probably prefer the defender to be spared from national duty for now so that he can rest.

But, Allardyce has made it clear that he will get in touch with the Red Devils’ coach and even if there is no green signal from him, he won’t care and will go ahead as per his planning.

Speaking recently, the 61-year old said, “I would chat with Mourinho. I have never had any problems with him and neither has he. But, it’s a different situation if someone is a club boss and the national boss is talking to him.”

Paul Parker believes that the club need at least three more players

Former Manchester United star Paul Parker believes that the club need at least three more players in order to start challenging for the Premier League title.

Parker, who managed to win two league titles during his time at United, says that the squad does not feel strong enough to last through the entire campaign even while competing in other competitions. Hence, he feels that the club should address weaknesses in areas like central defence, central midfield, and forward positions. Parker’s recommendation comes at a time when United have just splashed £ 150 million on four new players in the summer transfer window.

Borussia Dortmund states Henrikh Mkhitaryan will not be allowed to leave the club in the summer

Borussia Dortmund have categorically stated that midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will not be allowed to leave the club in the summer.


The player only has 12 months left on his contract and could start negotiating terms with foreign clubs from January. After having lost numerous top players on free transfers in the last few years, Dortmund are fearing at the possibility of once again letting one of their top players go for nothing. Only recently, striker Robert Lewandowski, who is valued in excess of £ 40 million, joined Bayern Munich on a free transfer after allowing his contract to expire.
