Kieran Trippier arrives at Newcastle for medical

Kieran Trippier arrives at Newcastle for medical

Mysport99 - Kieran Trippier has arrived at Newcastle's training ground to undergo his medical ahead of a move from Atletico Madrid. The right-back is set to become the first signing of the Saudi PIF era after agreeing a transfer worth around the £15m mark on Tuesday. Trippier left Madrid on Wednesday lunchtime and has now touched down in the North East of England to put the finishing touches on his deal. Mysport99 understands Newcastle have agreed to pay an initial £12m to land Trippier, with add-ons taking the fee up to the £15m mark, and the 31-year-old will become the highest-paid player in the club's history. There is also not believed to be any relegation release clause in Trippier's proposed contract, with Newcastle adamant that they can do enough to stay in the Premier...
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer facing dressing room unrest at Man Utd

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer facing dressing room unrest at Man Utd

Sports Betting Sites - A number of Manchester United players are growing more and more frustrated with life under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian finds himself under immense pressure after a week which featured a 4-2 defeat to Leicester, a scrappy 3-2 win over Atalanta and a humiliating 5-0 mauling at the hands of Liverpool, with United now considering parting ways with their manager. On top of the poor results, Solskjaer is also dealing with some serious tension in the dressing room, with The Telegraph spilling the details of a number of bust-ups over the past few weeks. One of the most high-profile confrontations came from centre-back Eric Bailly in the wake on the Leicester defeat. The Ivorian outwardly questioned why Solskjaer had left him on the bench in place of an unf...
Mohamed Salah wants to stay at Liverpool for remainder of career

Mohamed Salah wants to stay at Liverpool for remainder of career

Oline Betting Sites - Mohamed Salah has revealed he would like to stay at Liverpool for the remainder of his career, but says the decision is ultimately out of his hands. The 29-year-old's current contract expires in 2023, and sees Salah take home around £200,000-per-week in wages - making him one of the highest paid players at the club. Mysports99 understands that talks are ongoing between Liverpool and Salah's representatives over a new and extended deal, with the Reds looking to add their star man to a growing list of players who have signed new contracts. Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold and captain Jordan Henderson have already signed on the dotted line, and Salah has now revealed in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports that he can't see himself pla...
Bruno Fernandes insists Man Utd squad are still behind Ole

Bruno Fernandes insists Man Utd squad are still behind Ole

Sports Betting Odds - Bruno Fernandes has insisted that the Manchester United squad remains fully behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, despite their recent shaky form. United suffered a 4-2 defeat to Leicester last Saturday, meaning they have only won half of their eight Premier League games so far. They were also dumped out of the Carabao Cup by West Ham and have not convinced in Europe. After losing their opening Champions League group game to Young Boys, they have limped over the line to secure wins over Villarreal and Atalanta more recently. Against La Dea on Wednesday night they went into the break 2-0 down and required a second-half comeback to secure a much-needed three points, with Cristiano Ronaldo grabbing a late winner. Speaking after the game, Bruno Fernandes insisted tha...
Pep Guardiola has no intention of rushing teenager Cole Palmer

Pep Guardiola has no intention of rushing teenager Cole Palmer

Online Betting Malaysia - Pep Guardiola has no intention of rushing teenager Cole Palmer following his outstanding cameo in Manchester City’s Champions League thumping of Club Brugge. The highly-rated 19-year-old came off the bench and scored a brilliant goal as the Premier League champions eased to a 5-1 win over Club Brugge in their Group A clash at the Jan Breydel Stadium. It capped an impressive few days for the youngster, who briefly appeared against Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday before scoring a hat-trick for the club's U21 side later that same day. There will undoubtedly now be calls to see more of the Wythenshawe-born youngster but, as with Phil Foden before him, Guardiola will not be rushed, easing him into the action gradually. "Cole has a special quali...
Ronald Koeman insists he still has Barcelona players’ backing after Benfica defeat

Ronald Koeman insists he still has Barcelona players’ backing after Benfica defeat

Sports Betting Odds - Ronald Koeman believes he still has the support of his players despite Barcelona's 3-0 Champions League defeat to Benfica, casting further doubt over his future as manager. Koeman was already under serious pressure before the game and the loss has only raised that to even higher levels. Barcelona got off to a nightmare start when their hosts took the lead inside three minutes and they looked like conceding more throughout the half. Gerard Pique eventually paid the price for his side's ropey defending, with Koeman hauling him off on the half hour mark. Benfica would go on to add two more goals after the break and Eric Garcia capped off a horrific night by seeing red for a second bookable offence just before the final whistle. Speaking to the press after the ...
Roberto Martínez slams Rüdiger for De Bruyne injury

Roberto Martínez slams Rüdiger for De Bruyne injury

Sports Betting Odds - Roberto Martínez felt that the Chelsea defender deserved a red card following the incident in the second half of the Porto final. Manchester City and Belgium player Kevin De Bruyne is now a doubt for Euro 2020 after suffering a double fracture last night after a collision with Chelsea defender Antonio Rüdiger during the second half of the 2021 Champions League final in Porto. De Bruyne was forced to leave the action following the incident with Rüdiger being awarded a yellow card by match official Mateu Lahoz.

Chelsea overcome Manchester City to secure second Champions League trophy

Chelsea overcome Manchester City to secure second Champions League trophy

Online Betting Malaysia - Chelsea won their second Champions League title and denied Pep Guardiola's Manchester City their first after Kai Havertz grabbed a first-half goal to secure a 1-0 win in Saturday's all-English final at the Estadio Do Dragao in Porto, Portugal. The Germany international, Chelsea's record signing, kept his composure as he raced through and evaded goalkeeper Ederson before rolling the ball into an empty net in the 42nd minute to decide a tight encounter played in front of a crowd of 16,500. Premier League champions City were favourites ahead of the final but suffered a desperately disappointing night in their first Champions League showpiece match. Despite winning three of the past four Premier League titles for City, Spanish manager Guardiola faile...
Chelsea 2-0 Real Madrid: Superb Chelsea book their place in Istanbul

Chelsea 2-0 Real Madrid: Superb Chelsea book their place in Istanbul

Sports Betting Odds - Chelsea reached their first Champions League final since 2012 as goals from Timo Werner and Mason Mount secured a 2-0 victory over Real Madrid in their semifinal second leg at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday to win the tie 3-1 on aggregate. Their away goal in Madrid had given Chelsea a narrow advantage heading into the return, and they missed a host of chances that would have given them a much wider margin of victory. Madrid, who welcomed back captain Sergio Ramos, controlled possession from kickoff without creating a chance of note. Werner should have given Chelsea the lead on 18 minutes when he tapped home from Ben Chilwell's cross but was offside when he didn't need to be. Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy pulled off a superb save to deny Karim Benzema when ...
