Paris Saint-Germain are ready to offer as many as four offers in order to secure the signing of Tanguy Ndombele who has fallen out of favour at Tottenham Hotspur. Despite his present and future at the club being in doubt, Spurs are playing hardball and are hesitant to part with him so easily. Following a spectacular 2018/19 season for Lyon, the midfielder had attracted interest from many European heavyweights, including Real Madrid. Such was his prodigious talent and technical ability that Tottenham Hotspur broke the bank to make him the most expensive signing in their history (€60m). Over two and a half years later,…

There has been a dearth of good quality strikers in Barcelona, and the Catalan club has failed to attract a top name ever since the signing of Luis Suarez in 2014. Players like Kevin Prince Boateng, Martin Braithwaite, Memphis Depay and Luuk de Jong have all failed to make a startling impression. While trailblazing Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland has emerged as the big dream for Barca, they are on the winter transfer market looking for a stop-gap solution once again. According to Barcelona based media source Sport, the Catalan club are looking at Elche striker Lucas Boye who has a release clause of 25 million euros. However,…

Despite getting off to a fantastic start with a win in the first Test in Centurion, the remainder of the tour proved to be a horror show for India. Not only did they lose the Test 2-1, they also got whitewashed in the ODI series and were second to the hosts in almost every department. India failed to salvage pride even in the dead rubber at Newlands in Cape Town and ended up losing by four runs in a tight contest. It was clear that the ODI team lacked balance, and the bowling unit didn’t carry enough tooth to trouble…

Football transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Spanish side Sevilla have reached an agreement with Manchester United striker Anthony Martial over a loan transfer. The Frenchman will play for Sevilla until the end of the season, and the club will be paying his full wages. No additional fee over the loan transfer is involved. Martial had arrived from AS Monaco to Manchester United in 2015 and was the most expensive teenage signing in football history. He went on to score 79 times in 269 appearances for the Red Devils but fell out of favour and had been on the fringes of the squad for a long…

The Gunners have been interested in acquiring the services of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic since the last few months. The Serb’s superb display in front of goal has generated a lot of interest across Europe, and the operation won’t be a smooth one as far as the financial side is concerned. Arsenal’s talks with Vlahovic appear to be hitting a plateau as the London-based club are struggling to shed some weight from their wage bill. Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had received hefty bids from Saudi Arabian clubs Al Hilal and Al Nassar. However, the Gabonese forward has rejected those offers. As such, Arsenal will have to…

Barcelona have been trying to shake things up as far as the squad is concerned. Their director of football Mateu Alemany along with the consultation of head coach Xavi, has been quite busy in the winter transfer market to alleviate the problems plaguing the squad which includes the departure of several players. While they have had a poor track record in offloading players, they don’t necessarily require, the Catalans found some success recently with Philippe Coutinho securing a six-month loan move to Aston Villa which relieves much of the wage problems of the side.

With the international break soon approaching, reports claim that former AC Milan and Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli will be given another chance with a callup to the Italian national team to prove himself and stake a claim in the forward line. The Golden Boy Award’s 2010 winner last appeared for the Azzurri during the UEFA Nations League in September 2018. Balotelli has a history of failing to live up to the expectations of his managers and his own potential. Despite having played for some of the biggest clubs in the world, including Inter Milan, AC Milan, Manchester City and Liverpool, he failed to leave…
