Tottenham signing Tanguy Ndombele – Under the Threat?

Category : Soccer

Arsene Wenger is in talks over a non-training job at Paris Saint-Germain and has effectively talked with administrator Thomas Tuchel about marking Tanguy Ndombele, as indicated by reports. The previous Arsenal supervisor has been out of work since leaving the Emirates toward the finish of last season and has been connected with a large group of administrative employments from that point forward, however PSG has been attempting to persuade him to go up against a brandishing chief job. As indicated by legitimate PSG insiders and bookmakers online reviews Paris United, Wenger is thinking about moving in the background and has officially recognized Ndombele as the player he’d sign first.
Wenger met with Tuchel in Paris and commended his work with the French heroes so far this season – they top the Ligue 1 table with nine wins out of nine – and praising his utilization of youthful players. Be that as it may, they both concurred that there was one player who could take PSG to the following level: Ndombele.
The Lyon midfielder, has been called up by France, had a heavenly crusade on advance a year ago, winning a lasting arrangement, and has since been connected with a large group of Europe’s best clubs. Wenger’s old north London rivals Tottenham are believed to be one of his greatest suitors, with L’Equipe asserting Mauricio Pochettino had ‘fallen under the spell’ of Ndombele.
The 21-year-old mixes fierce pressing, work rate and guarded capacity with self-restraint and awesome work on the ball, as of now recording four helps this season, while he gave an amazing execution in annihilation against PSG. Should Wenger take up PSG’s activity offer – which would probably observe current brandishing chief Antero Henrique, who is inconsistent with Tuchel, chopped out – at that point he would make Ndombele’s marking is the main need.
The player spent keep going season on advance from Amiens before making his turn perpetual not long ago, having featured as one of the most splendid exceptional box-to-confine midfielders of Europe.
One club hugely excited about Ndombele was Tottenham Hotspur, and L’Equipe revealed simply a month ago that Spurs were thinking about a last-wheeze offer to sign him before the exchange due date.
According to expert pronostic – there’s no questioning that the Frenchman would be the perfect swap for Mousa Dembele in the core of the Spurs midfield, and fans have been clamoring for his mark for quite a while, especially after the previous evening’s execution, yet is it even reasonable any longer?

Discovering the mythical San Siro stadium

Category : Soccer

San Siro, the arena where dreams are made, and heroes forged stand gallantly as a testament to the unwavering passion inspired by the world’s greatest sporting activity.
This legendary architectural masterpiece is home to two of Milan’s greatest football clubs AC Milan and Inter Milan, and it hosts every season one of Europe’s fiercest soccer rivalries.
A bit of History
Officially known as Stadio Giuseppe Meazza; though, famously called San Siro in honor of the patron saint of a nearby small church is by far the largest stadium in Italy with over 80,000 sitting capacity and the most iconic.
Construction works on the ground began in 1925 and was completed within thirteen and half months. Though, there have been several renovations since then that have seen the ground evolve into its present majestic shape.
San Siro although initially built exclusively for the AC Milan football club; became the home ground also for Inter Milan in 1947. And both clubs have shared the stadium ever since.
Exploring the grounds of San Siro
The San Siro stadium is, without doubt, a must-see landmark at the outskirts of the city of Milan. It even has a more profound significance for the die-hard football fan where some of the keenly contested matches happened.
Walk through the long tunnel to the awe-inspiring ground where some of the epic football matches in history took place. Remember the 1990 World Cup quarter-final match between West Germany and Czechoslovakia? Or the thrilling penalty shoot-out in the 2016 Champions league final?
The thing is, San Siro has had a long, storied history and thankfully, all these were captured in the museum of the two clubs housed on the ground – the only museum in Italy by the way that’s located in a stadium.

5 signings that Chelsea should consider making in January

Category : Soccer

Chelsea have made a fantastic start to life under new manager Maurizio Sarri and after eight league games, are unbeaten and level on points at the top of the table.
Many experts had labelled this season’s Premier League as a two-horse race between Manchester City and Liverpool, but Sarri’s Blues have thus far matched their North-West rivals with new betting sites UK now suggesting that Chelsea could be contenders.
Given how Guardiola’s City amassed a record-breaking 100 points to win the league last term however, it’s ultimately going to take something incredible to stop Pep’s sharks, hence the reason why only Liverpool – this summer’s biggest Premier League spenders – had been tipped to challenge.
With that in mind, who could Chelsea bring in this January if they are bolster their ranks and build this impressive start into a genuine title run?
Timo Werner
Alvaro Morata hit the ground running when he joined from Real Madrid in the summer of ’17, but the Spaniard’s form quickly fizzled out and his ability to find the back of the net tapered off towards the end of the season. Morata turns 26 before the end of October and should now be well into his prime years, but all-in-all his record of 13 goals in 38 Chelsea appearances is not a tally that is going to bring a title to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea’s other main striker, Olivier Giroud, is far from prolific either and is yet to open his account for this season.
A player that Chelsea have previously been linked with is German international Timo Werner, who has hit 21 goals in all competitions for RB Leipzig for the past two consecutive seasons. Werner is also off the mark this term, scoring four times in seven league games as Leipzig sit 2nd in the Bundesliga. At 22, he’s a player that is yet to reach his peak but is already a proven goal scorer at a consistent level and has replicated his form in Europe.
Robert Lewandowski
Though at an entirely different stage of his career, an alternative to the Werner move could be a raid for unsettled Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski.
Bayern have made an uncharacteristically poor start to their Bundesliga campaign and sit in 6th after seven matches, while their 30-year-old Polish striker was linked with a move away in the summer and has reportedly been keen on a move to England.
Mauro Icardi
Again at the top end of the pitch, Chelsea would be wise to consider Mauro Icardi as an option.
The Argentine striker netted 29 times in 34 Serie A outings for Inter Milan last year and the 25-year-old’s physical game is perhaps well prepared for the demands of the Premier League. Sarri is also well-acquainted with Icardi following his time at Napoli.
Daniele Rugani
24-year-old centre-back Rugani is another name Sarri is familiar with having broken into the Juventus first team in recent years and although Chelsea have looked solid at the back in the early going this season, they were in the market for a Gary Cahill replacement in the summer.
Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen have filled the void alongside David Luiz, but Rugani would bring competition for places and also be a long-term move given Luiz and Cahill’s advancing years.
A potential replacement for Eden Hazard
Not something that Chelsea fans want to consider, but the man who has been doing the strikers’ job and scoring match-winning goals this season – Eden Hazard – continues to publicly express his desire for a move to Real Madrid.
Chelsea would be an entirely different entity without Hazard, their talisman right now, but may need to have midfield targets lined up should the Spanish giants swoop in January, which is a very realistic prospect.

Chelsea
Ever since the early 2000’s, the money of Roman Abramovich has transformed posh Chelsea football club into a global super power and with that comes an additional support base.
Arguably the most famous of all these many fans is Sir Richard Attenborough.
