Barca do not deserve to progress in Champions League after Inter failure, fumes Xavi

Barca do not deserve to progress in Champions League after Inter failure, fumes Xavi

Sports News
Mysport99 - Xavi declared Barcelona "do not deserve" to progress in the Champions League after failing to beat Inter at home on Wednesday. Robert Lewandowski took his tally to 14 goals in all competitions this season – only Erling Haaland has scored more in Europe's top five leagues – with two late equalisers in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Inter. The Poland striker first levelled after Nicolo Barella and Lautaro Martinez put Inter in front following Ousmane Dembele's opener, before cancelling out Robin Gosens' 89th-minute strike three minutes later. Lewandowski now has five goals in his first two Champions League games for Barca at Camp Nou, though that meant little to Xavi after Barca were left trailing Inter by three points with just two games to go. "If you don't bea...
Joan Laporta agrees with Xavi on allowing De Jong to join Man Utd

Joan Laporta agrees with Xavi on allowing De Jong to join Man Utd

Sports News
Mysport99 - Manchester United may have been given a glimmer of hope regarding Erik ten Hag's interest in Frenkie de Jong. Neither Xavi nor Joan Laporta are keen to part ways with the Barcelona star over the coming transfer windows, but the door doesn't appear to be closed completely. Ten Hag made De Jong his top target after taking the job at Old Trafford, having already worked together at Ajax. Despite their prior partnership, the midfielder stood firm in his desire to stay at the Camp Nou, where he supposedly dreamed of playing as a child. That didn't stop the Red Devils pushing until the bitter end, however, with the financial aspects of a £73million deal supposedly agreed. But the player himself refused to give his blessing in a messy, long-running saga that saw club presid...
Erik ten Hag ready to sanction Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit

Erik ten Hag ready to sanction Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit

Sports News
Mysport99 - Erik ten Hag has told his Manchester United bosses that he is now open to Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the football club this summer, Mysport99 understands. Ronaldo made it clear to United as early as June that he wanted to leave Old Trafford after just one season back at the club - primarily because he wanted to play Champions League football. United and Ten Hag were quick to go on the defensive and insist that Portuguese legend would not be allowed to depart. But after a further meeting between all parties in July, it was again confirmed to the club that 37-year-old wanted his future to lie away from United. Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid have all been linked with moves for the Portugal captain, although some clubs have stated publi...
Jurgen Klopp sends warning to Darwin Nunez after Crystal Palace red card

Jurgen Klopp sends warning to Darwin Nunez after Crystal Palace red card

Sports News
Mysport99 - Jurgen Klopp has warned Darwin Nunez that he must learn to control himself after he was sent off for a headbutt during Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday. Nunez spent a large part of the game tussling with Palace defender Joachim Andersen and tensions eventually boiled over 57 minutes in as the Liverpool striker pushed his head into Andersen's chin and was swiftly given his marching orders by the referee. It took a while for things to settle as Nunez refused to leave the pitch in favour of protesting the decision, forcing James Milner to intervene and force the Uruguayan to depart - all while Klopp could be seen urging Nunez to get off the pitch. “I’ve seen it back, of course it’s a red card,” said the Liverpool manager. “In the game, I could not ...
Chelsea make approach for Everton’s Anthony Gordon

Chelsea make approach for Everton’s Anthony Gordon

Sports News
Mysport99 - Chelsea have made a move for Everton starlet Anthony Gordon, sources have confirmed to Mysport99. 21-year-old Gordon has already been the subject of interest this summer with both Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United failing with bids. Everton resisted the earlier offers, insisting that Gordon was not for sale, and even if he was it would take a bid in excess of £50m - with both Tottenham and Newcastle not going above £40m. Chelsea have now made an approach and are believed to have come up with an initial deal worth just over £40m. Mysport99 understands that Everton are considering their options as there is the possibility of doing a deal with Chelsea that could involve players, something Toffees boss Frank Lampard is believed to be interested in doing.

Mysport99 - Manchester United have no interest in parting ways with Marcus Rashford this summer, Mysport99 understands. The England forward entered this summer on the fringes of the United setup but, as Mysport99 revealed in June, his sights were set firmly on regaining his place at Old Trafford and he was looking forward to working under Ten Hag and Steve McClaren, both of whom are known to be fans of his. The managerial duo have spoken with Rashford about his role in the team and his future at United, and the 24-year-old is happy working under Ten Hag and McClaren. Rashford has less than a year remaining on his contract - although United do have an option to extend by 12 months - and Mysport99 understands that intermediaries representing Paris Saint-Germain, who have shown ...
