CHAPTER CLOSED!! PSG Finally Take Decision On Signing Sanchez From Man United

French giants, Paris Saint-Germain, have finally decided not to make a move for Manchester United striker, Alexis Sanchez, during the January transfer window.
United is open to selling Sanchez during the transfer window in January, with the forward keen on joining PSG.
But The Independent UK is now reporting that PSG have no interest in signing the Chilean international, leaving him stuck in Manchester.
Sanchez joined the Red Devils in a player-swap deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan join Arsenal.
The Chilean earns around £400,000-a-week at United but has just netted four goals and has been dropped by manager, Jose Mourinho in recent weeks.
Sanchez is reportedly fed up with life at Old Trafford and is seeking an exit less than one year into his lucrative contract.
Meanwhile, Spanish television show, El Chiringuito, had reported earlier this week that Sanchez had instructed his agent, Fernando Felicevich to find him a new club, and his representative has begun talks with Real Madrid.
The report also claimed that Felicevich is discussing the possibility of Sanchez making a move to the Santiago Bernabeu in the January transfer window.
Sanchez will hope to feature for United when they take on Crystal Palace on November 24 in the Premier League.

Arsenal Star Danny Welbeck Finally Breaks Silence After Suffering Horror Injury

Arsenal forward, Danny Welbeck, has spoken for the first time since his career threatening injury during their Europa League clash with Sporting Lisbon.
The England international promised to return ‘stronger than ever before’ and thanked Arsenal fans for their support.
The player said this after undergoing two surgeries on his broken ankle.
The 27-year-old forward landed awkwardly in the 30th minute in the draw with Sporting Lisbon and required oxygen before being stretchered off the field at the Emirates.
Arsenal had earlier confirmed that both of Welbeck’s procedures ‘went well’ on Monday night.
“Back home… Thanks for all the love and support,” he told his followers on Twitter.
“No doubt I will be back stronger than ever before. Recovery grind starts now.”

LETS DISCUSS!! Super Eagles Kelechi Iheanacho Has NOT Improved Since Joining Man City In 2015, Do You Agree??

This is a serious debate and we want honest answers from our Hard Core Football Fans
After having an incredible tournament for Super Eagles at the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup that saw him grab the Most Promising Talent For that year at the CAF Awards, young Iheanacho was the at central of attraction from top European teams including Arsenal & Porto.
Many wanted him to join Arsenal as that will give him more playing time as then manager Arsene Wenger was known to give young players a spot in his squad.
However, in a move that critics saw as
picking money over career, Iheanacho made a shock move to Man City in early 2014.
Despite rare glimpse of promise, his limited chances at City greatly affected his confidence, jeopardizing his growth. It was surprising to see him pick Man City as they are known to splash the cash for ready made stars. It was hard to see our Iheanacho grow in such an environment
On 3rd of August 2017, Leicester City signed him on a five-year deal.
Now look what a Nigerian tweeted below, it wasn’t me ooo!

Naked Player Photobombs Ronaldo’s Selfie In Juventus Dressing Room (Photos)

Cristiano Ronaldo fans have noticed something X-rated in this hilarious dressing room photo. The Juventus superstar was celebrating scoring in the 2-0 win over AC Milan at the San Siro on Sunday.
Ronaldo who made a fool of himself by dropping a catch while watching tennis in London last night wore a beaming smile alongside unused sub Raoul Bellanova.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was topless and giving a big thumbs up. But behind him was a totally naked Giorgio Chiellini.
The Italy and Juve captain, 34, was obviously oblivious to the photo taking place just yards from him. Ronaldo who has more Instagram followers than anyone else in the world quickly brushed off the error though.

Jay Jay Okocha Arrives South Africa Ahead Of Crunch Super Eagles’ Match

Super Eagles legend Jay-Jay Okocha is looking forward to the upcoming “clash of titans” between Bafana Bafana and Nigeria in their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at FNB Stadium in South Africa on Saturday.
Okocha, who is widely regarded as the best Nigerian player of his generation, hardly misses a fixture between the two countries.
“It will be an interesting game . . . explosive,” said Okocha. Okocha is currently in Mzansi on a Bundesliga/StarSat legends tour to promote the German top league, looking to increase its fan base on the continent.
“Of course revenge will be on the minds of the Super Eagles players after they lost in the first leg in Uyo,” continued Okocha, who was part of the Nigerian team that knocked Bafana out in the semifinals of the 2000 Afcon tournament.
“As a player you have a chance to prove yourself with the next game. “That defeat might well be the motivation for Nigeria going into the match. It is an opportunity to regain our bragging rights.”
He also questioned the mentality of African players and their lack of hunger to succeed in European leagues. This hampers national teams in international tournaments.
“I think players are really not ambitious anymore. They are scared to go abroad, scared to fight and challenge to be the best. In my day we had that mentality to go and prove that we belonged among the world’s best.
“These days our players are easily satisfied with little. That mentality has to change. Football federations also need to get the structures right and set themselves targets.”

Higuain Handed Two-match Ban For Juventus Meltdown

Lega Serie A has confirmed AC Milan will be without the Argentina forward for two matches after his red card against Juventus.
Gonzalo Higuain has been handed a two-match ban after an on-pitch meltdown following his dismissal in AC Milan’s 2-0 defeat to his parent club Juventus on Sunday.
Higuain endured a nightmare showing against Juve, missing a penalty before receiving his marching orders in the second half.
The Argentina international had to be led off the pitch by team-mates after he reacted furiously to referee Paolo Mazzoleni’s decision to show him a straight red card.
Higuain was initially booked for dissent but was dismissed for persisting with his complaints to the official.
Lega Serie A on Tuesday announced the 30-year-old would be forced to sit out two matches.
The 30-year-old apologised to fans for the incident, but claimed that his emotions got the better of him during the game.
“It seemed an unfair foul, I was fouled as far as I’m concerned. I was cautioned but I did not insult anyone,” he told Milan TV.
“I apologised to the club, the fans, the coach and my companions because these episodes must be avoided.
“We are human, we feel emotions, the game was not going the right way and it was one of those days.”
Higuain’s former Real Madrid team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo also came out in his defence after the match, explaining how he intervened in order to calm down the situation.
“I told him to calm down, as he risked an even worse ban,” Ronaldo said to Sky Sport Italia.
“He didn’t do much, he was annoyed at losing the game. That’s understandable. I hope he is not punished too severely.”
The two-game ban means Higuain will miss the the trip to Lazio on November 25 and the visit of Parma a week later.

Ex Man City Star Nasri Set To Join This Premier League Club After Completing Doping BAN

Former France midfielder Samir Nasri is to undergo a medical at West Ham before a proposed move to the London club.
Nasri is allowed to start training again this month after completing an 18-month doping ban.

He will be able to play from 1 January, 2019 and would be reunited with one of his bosses at City, Manuel Pellegrini.
Nasri most recently played for Turkish club Antalyaspor, but his contract terminated on 31 January this year.
A month later he was banned, initially for six months, for using an intravenous drip treatment that contravened World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) rules, leading to a Spanish Anti-Doping investigation.
It was alleged that in 2016, while on loan from City to Sevilla, he received 500 millilitres of hydration in the form of sterile water containing micronutrient components, which exceeds the permissible limit.
In February 2017, a request by Sevilla for a retroactive therapeutic use exemption (TUE) for Nasri was refused by Uefa, and i

‘Man United Boss Mourinho Behaving Like A Baby’- Premier League Winner Chris Sutton Speaks

Jose Mourinho has behaved “like a big baby” and Manchester United will only improve under a different manager, says Premier League winner Chris Sutton.
Mourinho’s United lost 3-1 to derby rivals Manchester City on Sunday, leaving them eighth in the table.
After the match, he said City had benefited from playing two “friendly” matches beforehand, while United were “fatigued” after beating Juventus.
Sutton said those comments were “disrespectful” and “utter rubbish”.
City beat Southampton 6-1 in the league and Shakhtar Donetsk 6-0 in the Champions League before playing United, who defeated Bournemouth 2-1 and beat Juve by the same scoreline.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live’s Monday Night Club, former Blackburn and Celtic striker Sutton added:
United were outclassed. It was like watching Manchester versus Manchester reserves.
“There is an enormous gap between them and City, and things aren’t going to change unless they change the manager.
“What was most galling for me were Mourinho’s comments after the game – kicking off, behaving like a big baby. When is it going to stop?”
