Ranieri tells Kante to decide on his future

Leicester City coach Claudio Ranieri has reportedly told N’GoloKante to make a decision about his future. He has told the midfielder that he is free to leave if he wants to but he must let the club know.


Indeed, Ranieri will want to know whether he can count on the French midfielder for next season.

There has been news that Chelsea is interested in the player and had offered the club £30million for the French international. At the moment Leicester City has denied the offer and is still negotiating with the player for a new deal. They will be hoping that they can convince the player to stay with them like they did with Jamie Vardy.

However, it is believed that N’GoloKante wants to play for a bigger club and might consider moving abroad. It is reported that there is a Chinese club Shanghai SIPG that is also prepared to pay around £35m for the player. At the moment the French midfielder has not said anything about his decision and is still considering all options.

Ryan Babel admits that he might have gone too far

Ryan Babel admits that he might have gone too far with his online posts.

The fans of Al Ain were absolutely furious with one of the posts of Babel on a social networking site.

They felt offended by that and they expressed their anger towards the Dutchman during one of the recent training sessions after which the club board had to summon the player and warn him.

Babel was signed by Al Ain earlier this year in July, but, he has been a rusty performer for the club so far.

Just a couple of goals have come off him in the 10 appearances that he has made. His form has been in question big time.

On top of that, the mannerism that he has shown at times, it has almost turned him into a villain at the club.

But, according to the 28-year old, he wants the supporters to give him one final chance to prove his worth and show that he’s a good buy for the club. Continue reading “Ryan Babel admits that he might have gone too far”

Blackburn Rovers recently extended the contract of two influential players

Blackburn Rovers recently extended the contract of two influential players –Liam Williamson andMatt Kilgallon – and managerGary Bowyer says that it is positive news for the club. Both players were out of contract at the end of the campaign, but the club now have extended their deals by one year. They will stay at Ewood Park until the summer of 2016. This is important news for Blackburn given that the experience provided by the duo will be key in a promotion challenge. During the 2014-15 season, Blackburn missed out on the play-off places only narrowly. They have been consistently making progress ever since the relegation from the top flight.

Just 11 points separated them from the final play-off spot andBowyer promises this gap to be narrowed next season when the club take advantage of any new signings. However, the manager will also have to contend with the loss of one of his key players. It is highly expected that striker Jordan Rhodes will be sold in the summer against the wishes of the manager and everyone at the club. This is due to persisting interest from Premier League clubs, who want to sign the 25-year-old. The Scotland striker has scored 21 goals in just 45 matches last season.

Raheem Sterling making waves in the world of football

Raheem Sterling is one of those young players who is making waves in the world of football but despite all of the interest and offers that he has been receiving from top clubs Brendan Rodgers has announced that the English player is not up for sale and will remain at Anfield at the end of the season as he is not going to leave in the upcoming summer transfer window despite all of the rumors stating otherwise.

“I’m quite relaxed about it. It’s part of the modern game. He has got two and a half years left on his contract and is going nowhere this summer,” Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers told reporters during a press conference as the manager took the chance to talk about the current situation of his most sought-after player.

The 20 year old player was offered a new deal where he will be earning €100,000 each week as Brendan Rodgers is attempting to keep the player tied in the team and avoid having to deal with other offers from different clubs.

Sterling currently has a contract with Liverpool that allows him to earn €35,000 per week and it runs for 2 more years but even with this huge raise in wages, the young player has stated that he isn’t so motivated by money as his main driving force is in winning trophies.

Arsenal recovering from the depressing Champions League

They are no. 3 now with a lead of 1 point over Manchester United.

The Gunners are not finding themselves that far behind from overtaking Manchester City either. One or two results here and there in their favour and they would trump the Sky Blues too. Continue reading “Arsenal recovering from the depressing Champions League”
