Raphael Varane reveals how Sir Alex Ferguson tried to sign him for Man Utd in 2011

Online Betting Malaysia - Raphael Varane is finally a Manchester United player, but he could have been rocking up at Old Trafford ten years earlier if Sir Alex Ferguson had his way. Back in 2011, Varane was just emerging as arguably the top young defender on the planet at the time, and he was eventually snapped up by Real Madrid, who paid around £8m to land the Frenchman from Lens. “There had been a lot of rumours and a lot of people speaking about me and Manchester United since 2011, when Sir Alex Ferguson came to my mother’s house," he told the club's official website. "When it was real [this year], that was when I spoke with my club, and I felt it was a real opportunity to play in the Premier League for Manchester United.” Varane was eventually swayed by Zinedine Zidane, ...

Barcelona confirm Lionel Messi will not be signing a new deal

Online Betting Sites - Barcelona have confirmed that Lionel Messi will not be signing a new deal at the club due to their ongoing financial concerns. The Argentine superstar has been in talks with Barça for the majority of the summer, with the club hoping to tie him down to a new deal that would keep him at Camp Nou for the remainder of his career.

However, reports coming out of Spain on Thursday night suggested that talks had hit the buffers after club chiefs were unable to reach a compromise with Messi’s represe...

Paul Pogba rejects new Man Utd contract offer – likely to leave this summer

Online Betting Malaysia - Manchester United will look to offload Paul Pogba this summer after the Frenchman rejected the offer of a new contract worth £50m.

With just one year remaining on his current deal, United had hoped to tie Pogba down to a lucrative new contract to avoid the risk of losing him for free next year - but the Mirror report that they'll look to sell him this summer after he rejected their latest £350,000-per-week offer. News of Paul Pogba’s possible availability has alerted the attention of Paris Saint-Germain, with the Ligue 1 outfit ready to table a £45m bid - £5m short of the Premier League outfit's...

Roman Abramovich ‘releases funds’ for Chelsea Erling Haaland bid

Online Betting Malaysia - Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has set aside the £150m needed to bid for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer. Chelsea are ready to shell out up to £150m on Haaland as Abramovich sees him as a generational talent who can take the team to a new level for the next decade. As noted by Bild, Abramovich has taken one step further in his pursuit of the 20-year-old and has 'released the funds' for a £150m bid and there is a confidence that Dortmund will be convinced to sell at that price. That's also backed up by Jan Aage Fjortoft, who claims Chelsea are on the cusp of submitting a 'big offer', although there is no mention of just how much that could be. While £150m may be an enormous sum of money, Chelsea expect to be able to pay the f...
