Man Utd ‘Agree’ Varane Deal With Real Madrid – DETAILS



Man Utd 'Agree' Varane Deal With Real Madrid - DETAILS

According to Manchester United are closing in on an agreement to sign Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane.

While the two sides were not close to agreeing terms at the start of the week, much work has been done to bridge the gap, with a deal now expected to take place for between €45m (£39/$53m) and €55m (£47m/$65m).

Varane has been one of Man Utd’s top summer transfer priorities since they completed a deal to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.


There has been significant progress towards Man Utd and Real Madrid agreeing terms over recent hours and it is hoped that the negotiations will continue to develop over the course of the next week.

Previously, there was a sense that both clubs were playing a game of chess. United wanted to use their advantageous position in the deal – Varane only has a year left on his contract and wants to leave – to put pressure on Madrid, who are also struggling financially.

Nevertheless, the relationship between Real Madrid and Man Utd is very good and this has helped to smooth talks in recent times.

Madrid, who saw club legend Sergio Ramos walk away for nothing to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this summer, made Varane a new contract offer prior to Euro 2020, but this was turned down by the defender, who did not even return to ask for more money. Instead, he was content to agree personal terms with Man Utd, with whom he is set to sign a five-year deal.

Indeed, Varane is keen to leave Madrid as a ‘gentleman’ out of respect for the club and president Florentino Perez. He has joined up with the team for pre-season as expected but did not travel to Glasgow on Sunday for a friendly with Rangers.

All the signs are pointing to a deal with Man Utd being concluded.

‘Unstoppable’ Chelsea Hammer Spurs 3-0 To Win Derby



'Unstoppable' Chelsea Hammer Spurs 3-0 To Win Derby

Chelsea moved joint top of the table – alongside Liverpool – following a 3-0 win at Tottenham where both teams paid tribute to the late Jimmy Greaves.

On the morning of the contest, it was announced that the legendary England striker had passed away at the age of 81 and it was fitting that supporters from two of his former clubs joined together to salute his genius ahead of kick-off.

It looked like there would be a goal-fest in his honour too as the sides made bright, attacking starts with Spurs, in particular, penning the Blues back with a high press from their front three.

However, the much-anticipated shoot-out pitting Harry Kane against Romelu Lukaku failed to materialise and the best opportunity of note in the first period came just past the half-hour when Heung-Min Son’s heavy touch allowed Kepa – in for the injured Edouard Mendy – to smother at his feet.

Chelsea came out with a renewed approach following the break and the introduction of N’Golo Kante proved key. Thomas Tuchel’s men took the lead four minutes after the restart when Thiago Silva thumped home a header from a left-wing corner before Kante doubled the advantage with a heavily deflected 25-yard strike soon after.

Spurs offered little to suggest they could launch a realistic recovery and in added time Toni Rudiger put the seal on what is a sixth successive away win in London derbies for the first time in their history.

The result means Chelsea move joint top with Liverpool. Spurs are four points further back in seventh.

Chelsea will now switch focus to an EFL home clash with Aston Villa on Wednesday prior to hosting Man City in a mouth-watering league match on Saturday.

Spurs visit Wolves in the EFL Cup before visiting Arsenal in the North London derby on Sunday.

Man United Players Mobbed David De Gea After Saving A Penalty Since 2016 As They Beat Westham (Watch)



Man United Players Mobbed David de Gea After Saving A Penalty Since 2016 As They Beat Westham (Watch)

David De Gea saved a penalty in the fifth minute of injury time taken by West Ham substitute Mark Noble, who was sent on purely to take the kick, as Manchester United hold on for a 2-1 victory at the London Stadium.

A penalty was awarded via a VAR check after Jarrod Bowen saw his cross strike the outstretched arm of Luke Shaw.

Minutes earlier the failure of West Ham to sign last season’s loan star Jesse Lingard came back to haunt them as the England striker curled an unstoppable curling strike into the top corner in the 89th minute.

The Hammers went in front on the half-hour mark when Said Benrahma aimed a shot from 20 yards to David De Gea’s left only for it to be deflected by Raphael Varane just inside the goalkeeper’s right-hand post.

The lead lasted just five minutes before Bruno Fernandes’ fine inswinging cross from the left saw Cristiano Ronaldo beat the offside trap and though Lukas Fabianski saved the initial attempt on the volley, he could do nothing to stop the rebound nestling in the goal behind him as the Real Madrid legend scored for the third game in succession.

The Red Devils were overall worthy victors with Fernandes when the game was goalless seeing a shot tipped onto the post by Fabianski, who also raced from his line to deny a great chance for Ronaldo in the second half.

Had West Ham grabbed an equaliser United would have been particularly sickened as the Portuguese legend went to ground claiming a penalty three times in the latter stages of the game but on all occasions referee Martin Atkinson waved away his appeals.

‘I Am Recovering Well’ – Pele Updates Fans After Surgery



'I Am Recovering Well' - Pele To Fans

Brazil legend Pele says he is “recovering very well” after briefly being readmitted to intensive care following a recent operation.

The 80-year-old had surgery to remove a tumour from his colon this month and was initially released from intensive care on Wednesday.

Sao Paulo’s Albert Einstein Hospital said he was readmitted “as a preventative measure”.

“My friends, I am still recovering very well,” Pele wrote on Instagram.

“Today I received visits from family members and I continue to smile every day. Thank you for all the love I get from you.”

Pele had been having treatment at the hospital since 31 August after the tumour was detected in routine tests.

Media outlets in Brazil reported that he was readmitted to intensive care as a precautionary measure because of his age.

The hospital later released a statement confirming this and added: “After stabilisation, the patient was transferred to semi-intensive care.

“He is currently stable from a cardiovascular and respiratory point of view.”

Before the hospital statement was released, his daughter posted on Instagram: “I don’t know what is going on with the rumours out there but my DMs are booming!!!

“There’s already a lot of anxiety roaming the world these days and we don’t want to be the reason for more.

“The normal recovery scenario for a man of his age after an operation like this, is sometimes two steps forward and one step back. It’s very normal.

“Yesterday he was tired and took a little step back. Today he took two forwards!”

Pele’s health has been a concern in recent years. He had prostate surgery in 2015 after he was admitted to hospital for the second time in six months, and he was admitted again for a urinary infection in 2019.

Pele is Brazil’s all-time leading scorer with 77 goals in 92 games and one of only four players to have scored in four World Cup tournaments.

Lionel Messi recently passed him as the leading South American men’s scorer in international matches with a hat-trick in Argentina’s World Cup qualifying win against Bolivia.
