Man United to be offered chance to sign La Liga defender for free

Manchester United could reportedly have their shot at signing Barcelona star Samuel Umtiti as they continue to look for defensive reinforcements.

The French centre-back has had some good times and some bad times in Spain and it looks like they’ve finally decided to end their ties.

Umtiti’s proneness to injuries appears to have essentially cost him his position at Barcelona, with perhaps their new manager Ronald Koeman not being impressed.

The former Everton boss may have decided to shuffle the deck with many recognising the need for a complete overhaul for the La Liga giants.

The 26-year-old arrived in Spain with high hopes he could be Gerard Pique’s long-term partner in the central of defence but things haven’t quite worked out that way.

According to Manchester Evening News, via Cadena Ser, Barcelona are so desperate to get Umtiti’s wages off their bill that they could let him go for … Read the rest

Klopp provides Henderson fitness update as Liverpool thrash Blackpool in nine-goal thriller

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has provided an update on the fitness of Jordan Henderson as the captain sat out of the Reds’ 7-2 victory over Blackpool.

The midfielder is continuing his recovery from the injury sustained at the tail end of last season that kept him out of the Premier League run-in.

Given the fact that Henderson had resumed training at Melwood, there was an expectation he’d make an appearance against Blackpool this weekend.

The boss has explained that the skipper wanted to play at Anfield, but it simply wasn’t worth risking further injury for a pre-season friendly.

Obviously Hendo was desperate to play a few minutes today as well, but it makes no real sense because he had to do an important session today for him,Klopp told the club’s official site before kick-off.

If he would have played today, 10 minutes or so would Read the rest

Koeman flexes his muscles at Barcelona again ahead of Messi return

The turmoil at Barcelona over the last week since Lionel Messi effectively gave the club his notice only to reluctantly rescind it, is more than enough for the club to deal with.

However, the stark reality away from all of the drama is that the club have a new coach in Ronald Koeman who finds himself under the most intense pressure already without a ball even being kicked in anger.

Indeed, there are still three weeks to go before Barca open their LaLiga account for 2020/21, given their participation in the latter stages of the Champions League.

The Dutchman apparently made it perfectly clear who was boss when he first met with Messi, and ahead of a reunion between the pair at training on Monday, Koeman has metaphorically flexed his muscles once again.

Luis Suarez a step away from Juventus

Spanish newspaper Marca report that Juventus are a step away from signing Barcelona striker Luis Suarez with an agreement having been reached with the club.

The 33-year-old Uruguayan has been closely linked with a move to Turin in recent weeks as a replacement for Gonzalo Higuain.

Marca now report that Lionel Messi’s decision to remain at Barca had fuelled speculation that this may mean a stay for Suarez too, but he is in fact preparing to leave the club.

According to the report, Suarezs’ future is almost certainly with Juventus having reached an agreement on personal terms with the club on a two-year contract with an option for the third, agreeing a salary of €10 million a season, net.

Marca also suggest that the biggest issue now is for Suarez to free himself of his deal with Barca as he understands that he could be entitled to receive the salary … Read the rest

Chaos at Barcelona: What does Messi’s decision mean for the club?

After two haywire weeks in Catalonia, Lionel Messi has finally come open about the events that unfolded. The Argentine announced that he would continue at Barcelona for another season, albeit against his will. Still, what does the decision from Messi mean for Barcelona and Ronald Koeman?

It has been a rough couple of weeks for the Barcelona faithful. Frenzied days coupled with sleepless nights, rolling about in the turmoil of the mayhem at the club. Repeated checks into social media and an overload on translator tools to decipher various media leaks were the routine. The confusion at the club divided the fanbase like never before. However, it was all put to bed by one man, and his one interview.

Friday was the day the Lionel Messi finally gave a public statement. He reiterated the fact that his intention to leave was genuine. In what was a rather extraordinary 20-minute interview Read the rest

Mercedes-AMG Petronas 2020 Italian Grand Prix Preview

Formula One heads from one iconic track to another, with the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza hosting Round 8 of the 2020 season: the Italian Grand Prix.

Toto Wolff talks Italy:

Spa had not been our strongest track in recent years, so it felt very good to redeem ourselves this year and leave Belgium with a 1- 2. A few weeks ago, I was out on the track in Silverstone to watch our cars go through Maggots and Becketts; last weekend in Spa, I was watching the onboard of it going through Eau Rouge and Pouhon. Seeing the W11 driven in anger, attacking the circuit with everything they’ve got, is truly impressive and shows what a mighty machine this team has created – the result of a colossal effort from everyone in Brackley and Brixworth.

Kevin Hansen Unable to Show Wet Weather Pace in Finland

Kevin Hansen was frustrated on Sunday after he was eliminated at the semi-final stage of the World RX of Finland. Hansen was in the runner-up’s spot going into the final part of qualifying after he finished second in Q2.

But worsening weather and track conditions in Q3 hurt the drivers in the last race of the session including Hansen. Nevertheless, he still qualified sixth and believes he was on course for victory in his semi-final if traffic did not hamper him.

Ironically, it was brother Timmy Hansen who inadvertently held Kevin up and allowed GRX Taneco‘s Timur Timerzyanov to jump Kevin on the final lap when he took to the joker lap.

Despite Kevin doing everything he could to sneak by Timerzyanov at the line, it was not enough and he left Kouvola disappointed.

Hansen said: “Today (Sunday) was a wet race so we had to set-up the Read the rest

2020 Italian GP, Ferrari second practice report: Charles P9, Sebastian P12

The Scuderia Ferrari cars didn’t appear in the top 10 throughout the three-day weekend at Spa and after the first practice session at Monza that was also true. Charles Leclerc finished a tow-assisted 11th in the opening session, whereas Sebastian Vettel was all the way down between the two Williams cars in 19th.

The four-time champion certainly expected better this afternoon, but to what extent will Ferrari as a whole be able to move forward from the middle of the midfield? Things seemed to improve a little bit for the Maranello team in the second practice session at Monza, but still far from where the Italian side should be.

Scuderia Ferrari Monegasque driver Charles Leclerc finished in P9, while Sebastian Vettel improved to 12th in second practice but nearly ended his session in the barriers after spinning his Ferrari at the first of the Lesmos, an accident that was almost … Read the rest
