Juventus ready to move for Real Madrid midfielder Isco?

Juventus are reportedly ready to launch a summer approach for Real Madrid midfielder Isco. Real Madrid midfielder Isco has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer target for Juventus. Isco has enjoyed a largely successful period at the Bernabeu, but the playmaker has only just returned to the starting lineup after the return of Zinedine Zidane. The Frenchman is known to be an admirer of the playmaker, although it has been suggested that the Spain international could be allowed to leave the club. According to Calciomercato, Juventus have emerged as a potential destination for the 26-year-old should Real give the green light to a sale. The Italian giants have already secured a deal for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, but more changes are expected at the Serie A leaders. Isco still has just ...

The pair go head-to-head on Saturday night. Amir Khan believes he is taking on one of the best fighters in the world in Terence Crawford at the weekend. Khan and WBO welterweight champion Crawford go head-to-head at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. The 32-year-old Briton told a press conference: “This definitely ranks at the top for me because I’m fighting a world champion like Terence. “It’s just amazing for me to be in this position again. To know I’m fighting the best out there again. “I know that I can’t make any mistakes out there because then I’ll be in trouble.” Khan has won his last two fights since the defeat to Saul Alvarez in Las Vegas in 2016, where he was knocked out in the sixth round. “We know we’ve do...

Hugo Lloris: Spurs “ready to suffer” to beat City

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris says his side are “ready to suffer” in order to see off Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals. Spurs head to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday with a 1-0 first-leg lead, thanks to Son Heung-min’s later winner, but City are still favourites to progress to the last four as their quadruple quest faces a pivotal moment. But by keeping clean sheet in their home leg, if Spurs can find the net in Manchester, it would need City needing three goals to progress. 📍 Etihad Stadium Today ➡️ Training Tomorrow ➡️ Matchday #UCL ⚪️ #COYS pic.twitter.com/9LpHAzyV0F — Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) April 16, 2019 Spurs will undoubtedly come under huge pressure against Pep Guardiola‘s men, but the France goalkeeper, who saved Sergio Ague...

Liverpool ready to offer striker Divock Origi a new contract?

Divock Origi is to be offered a new contract by Liverpool after impressing manager Jurgen Klopp with his attitude, according to a report. Liverpool are reportedly set to offer back-up striker Divock Origi a new contract as a reward for his persistence. The Belgium international, who was on the brink of joining Wolverhampton Wanderers in a £22m deal last summer, has started just three Premier League games for the Reds this season. Origi has played a key role from the bench in tight matches, however, most memorably scoring an injury-time winner in December’s 1-0 victory over Merseyside rivals Everton. Football Insider reports that Jurgen Klopp has been blown away by the 23-year-old’s attitude and application, and the German wants to keep him at Anfield beyond the end of the seaso...

Mauricio Pochettino: ‘Tottenham Hotspur ready to rival Europe’s top clubs’

Mauricio Pochettino believes Tottenham’s move into their new stadium means they now have to behave like a big club in other areas. In the shape of their impeccable new 62,062-seater home and their superb training ground, Spurs’ infrastructure is among the best in Europe, but that is not matched by their investment in their playing squad. While they have had a £1billion stadium to pay for, they have gone through the last two transfer windows without making a signing and their wage bill is nothing like their other top-four rivals. Wednesday 3 April #SpursAreHome pic.twitter.com/kBNqmpJ16o — Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) April 2, 2019 On the eve of Spurs’ return home, Pochettino delivered a message for chairman Daniel Levy that echoed the one he made at the end of last ...

Barcelona ‘ready to reignite Antoine Griezmann interest’

Barcelona are ready to reignite their interest in Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, according to a report. Barcelona have reportedly made a U-turn regarding Antoine Griezmann and are now ready to reignite their interest in the Atletico Madrid forward. Griezmann was heavily linked with a switch to Barca in last summer’s transfer window, with the Catalan giants believed to have spent 12 months working on a deal for the France international. However, the 28-year-old announced before the 2018 World Cup that he would be penning a new long-term contract at the Wanda Metropolitano. Griezmann’s future is once again being called into question, however, and it had been reported that the attacker’s representatives were preparing to apologise to Barca for rejecting them in t...

Spurs ready for new stadium – how it happened

After 689 days away, Tottenham are finally returning home. But it is not the house they left in May 2017, when they said goodbye to White Hart Lane, their base of over 100 years, that they are going back to. Instead, awaiting them is a majestic new 62,062-seater arena that is going to provide a fantastic platform for the club to kick on and try to reach the top echelons of English and European football. They may not have the best team in Europe, but they will have the best stadium, one which will provide a blueprint of how football arenas of the future should be built. The wait for the club to get back on to the Tottenham High Road has been painstaking as the project – which is reported to cost around £1billion – has suffered frustrating delays. While the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which i...

Marcus Rashford ‘ready to sign new Manchester United deal’

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is ‘ready’ to sign a new long-term contract at Old Trafford, according to a report. Marcus Rashford is reportedly ‘ready’ to sign a new long-term contract with Manchester United. The England international will see his current deal expire in the summer of 2020, although the Red Devils do have the option to extend it for another 12 months. Barcelona are believed to be circling the 21-year-old, however, with the Spanish giants looking for a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez. This season, the attacker has scored 12 times and registered nine assists in 38 appearances in all competitions for United, who recently appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their permanent boss. According to the Daily Mail, Rashford is now close to pennin...

Matt Polster: ‘I will be ready for Rangers debut’

Matt Polster admits he has no idea when he will be offered his next chance by Steven Gerrard after revealing he pulled the plug on his own Rangers debut. Gerrard handed the American midfielder a two-and-a-half-year deal in January after impressing the Gers boss during a trial stint alongside the Ibrox first-team on their winter training break to Tenerife. The former Chicago Fire player was then set to get his first run out in front of the Light Blues faithful when Gerrard’s men hosted Dundee last month, with his manager confirming he would see some action against Jim McIntyre’s strugglers. But Polster withdrew with a tight groin and has not been seen in a matchday squad since. The 25-year-old remains determined to fight his way into the Rangers line-up but knows it is now the w...

Trinidad & Tobago boss Dennis Lawrence ready for Wrexham return

Trinidad & Tobago boss Dennis Lawrence finally gets the chance to manage at Wrexham three months after he almost took charge of his former club. Lawrence turned down the opportunity to manage the National League club – whom he made over 200 appearances for between 2001 and 2006 – in December after Sam Ricketts left to join Shewsbury. But the 44-year-old former defender chose to stay in a job that he started in January 2017. “It was there (Wrexham) but being in the Trinidad & Tobago job it was a difficult position to be in,” Lawrence said ahead of his side’s friendly with Wales at the Racecourse Ground on Wednesday. “Trinidad & Tobago is my home. It’s my country. But Wrexham is my heart. “It’s like your brother and sister having an argum...
