Chelsea star player, Eden Hazard has finally agreed deal with La Liga giants, Real Madrid to move to the Santiago Bernabeu next season.

Hazard, who did not score for Maurizio Sarri’s side as they were defeated 2-1 by Wolves in Premier League on Wednesday, has been in talks with Chelsea over a new deal for several months.

The Belgium international is weighing up his options with less than two years left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge, as he harbours serious ambitions to play for Madrid.

However, Mundo Deportivo is now reporting that Hazard will snub a new deal with the Blues and instead head to Real Madrid in the summer.

The report claimed that the Los Blancos would offer midfielder, Mateo Kovacic to the West London club in an attempt to bring down Chelsea’s asking price of around €170m for the forward, who will turn 28 in January.

Hazard will hope to lead Chelsea to victory when they tackle Premier League leaders, Manchester City on Saturday.

I never expected to have so much success, Messi says

FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi on Tuesday said he never expected to have such a successful career after receiving his fifth Golden Shoe in Barcelona.

The award was for his being the top goalscorer in Europe last season.

The forward scored 34 times in La Liga last season to claim his fifth Golden Shoe award, which is one more than Juventus’s Cristiano Ronaldo has won.

Messi pipped Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah to the prize after the Egyptian netted 32 times in the English Premier League.

“When I started playing I did not expect all this. My dream was, obviously, to be a professional, but I didn’t imagine so much,” Messi said at a gala.

“This is thanks to hard work and effort and, above all, my team mates. I have the best players in the world in their positions playing beside me and that makes everything easier and lets me win these prizes.”

Messi, who also earned the Golden Shoe in 2009/2010, 2011/2012, 2012/2013 and 2016/2017, led FC Barcelona to a league and cup domestic double last season.

The forward leads La Liga’s top scorers chart with 14 goals in this campaign, more than any other player in the top five European leagues.

Ed Woodward reveals why Man United sacked Mourinho

Mourinho and Ed Woodward


Manchester United executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward has revealed why the club sacked manager, Jose Mourinho.

Recall that Mourinho was on Tuesday morning sacked by United.

According to Metro UK, Woodward told United’s players at Old Trafford training ground shortly after Mourinho’s sack that one of the reasons the club fired the Portuguese gaffer was because of the Red Devils’ current position on the Premier League table.

The report claimed that Woodward also said that Mourinho’s relationship with some of United’s most high profile players was another reason why the former Chelsea coach was sacked, adding that United board could not continue under the circumstances.

The report also claimed that the United boss did not only put the whole blame on the 55-year-old.

Man United will tackle Cardiff City on Saturday in the Premier League fixture at home.

Man Utd sack Mourinho after poor start to the season

Published

on


Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Manchester United following their disappointing start to the season.

The Red Devils currently sit sixth in the Premier League table but have already lost five times in 17 matches, leaving them 19 points behind leaders Liverpool and 11 off fourth-placed Chelsea in the fight for Champions League places.

That follows a summer transfer window in which Mourinho routinely complained at a lack of signings, with the Portuguese unable to persuade the club’s hierarchy to sign a new centre-back.

Mourinho has continued to drop hints that he remains unhappy at that failure to spend big, and he now leaves after two-and-a-half years in charge at Old Trafford, with his final match in charge Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to arch-rivals Liverpool.

“Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect,” a statement read.

“The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.

“A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager.”
