Cristiano Ronaldo headlines our Rumour Mill as PSG eye Real Madrid star

Image

sbo bz sbobet The summer transfer window for Premier League clubs is open while international deals can be completed from early next month. That has started a frenzy of speculation as players and coaches look for their next moves. Across the world of football, there is plenty of activity and stories that have football fans talking. Here, we look at the latest transfer deals that could happen very soon.

CRISTIANO RONALDO
PSG are hoping to lure the Portuguese captain away from Real Madrid this summer by offering a €45 million (Dh192.8m) per year contract, according to AS. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner cast doubts over his future with his comments after Los Blancos’ Champions League triumph in Kiev last Saturday.

The Ligue 1 side have reportedly contacted Madrid, but UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules could hinder their pursuit. It is likely that the 33-year-old will step down a level from Madrid towards the end of his career, although that may not happen for another few years.

MARKO ARNAUTOVIC
sbo bz sbobet Manchester United are interested in signing the West Ham forward, Sky Sports claims. Jose Mourinho was in Innsbruck on Wednesday as Austria beat Russia 1-0 in a friendly, with Arnautovic providing the assist for the winner.

The 29-year-old previously worked with the Red Devils boss during their time together at Inter Milan in 2009. The Hammers frontman, who still has four years to run on his contract at the London Stadium, scored 11 goals and provided six assists in 31 league matches during the 2017-18 season.

YACINE ADLI
Arsenal are closing in on the highly-rated PSG teenager, according to L’Equipe. The 17-year-old midfielder has caught the eye of several big clubs across Europe and is reportedly set to put pen to paper on a long-term deal at the Emirates Stadium.

sbo bz sbobet The Paris native has netted 13 goals in 23 appearances for various French underage teams, an impressive record for an attacking midfielder. And with Unai Emery set to balance Premier League and Europa League commitments next season, a player of Adli’s status would be a welcome addition to the set up.

Patrick van Aanholt headlines our Rumour Mill as Crystal Palace defender could make Premier League switch

sbo666 That has started a frenzy of speculation as players and coaches look for their next moves. Across the world of football, there is plenty of activity and stories that have football fans talking. Here, we look at the latest transfer deals that could happen very soon.

BUTLAND
Stoke will not allow their goalkeeper to move on the cheap this summer, despite heavy interest from Liverpool. The Sun reports the Potters will demand at least £30 million (Dh150m) for his services this summer, though 20 per cent of any future fee will go to his former club Birmingham. After relegation from the Premier League, the Potters are resigned to losing the England international but want to hold out for as much cash as possible. Liverpool looks likely to be Butland’s next destination as the Merseysiders seek a new No.1 following Loris Karius’s Champions League nightmare and Simon Mignolet is all but out the exit door.

PATRICK VAN AANHOLT
Everton are set to revive their interest in the Crystal Palace defender this summer now Marco Silva has taken up the Goodison Park hotseat. According to the Daily Mail, the Toffees have identified the 27-year-old Netherlands star as the man to replace club icon Leighton Baines, who is in the twilight of his Blues career. The Merseysiders had previously been linked with both Danny Rose and Luke Shaw to bolster the left-side of their defence but apparently see Van Aanholt as a more affordable alternative. Rated at £20m (Dh 97m), the former Sunderland star is within the Blues’ price range and Everton’s new Director of Football, Marcel Brands, has already made tentative enquiries over his availability. sbo666

RYAN FREDERICKS
The Fulham full-back could become Manuel Pellegrini’s first summer signing as new West Ham boss, the Daily Mail reports. The newly-promoted Cottagers are resigned to losing the full-back on a free transfer to their London neighbours after the 25-year-old rejected new terms at Craven Cottage. Fredericks, who was a virtual ever-present during a vintage campaign for the Whites, is viewed as a replacement for the ageing Pablo Zabaleta – despite Pellegrini’s affiliation with the cult Manchester City hero. Having started his career as a youth player at Tottenham, Fredericks had spells at Brentford, Millwall, Middlesbrough and Bristol City before joining Fulham in 2015. sbo666

When is the World Cup third-place play-off at Russia 2018?

Image

sbo888 England and Belgium lost their World Cup semi-finals, but they still have one more game to play: the third-place play-off.It may be tough to recover from the disappointment of missing out on a place in the final, but the extra fixture does at least give nations the opportunity to finish on a high.

When and where is the third-place play-off?
sbo888 This year, the third-place play-off will take place at 3pm on Saturday, July 14. The 65,000-capacity Saint Petersburg Stadium is the venue.

What's the history behind it?
There has been a third-place play-off at World Cups since the second edition in 1934 in Italy, when Germany beat Austria 3-2.

2014: Holland 3-0 Brazil/2010: Germany 3-2 Uruguay/2006: Germany 3-1 Portugal/2002: Turkey 3-2 South Korea/1998: Croatia 2-1 Holland/1994: Sweden 4-0 Bulgaria/1990: Italy 2-1 England

While the European Championships dispensed with the extra game in 1980, the often relaxed, high-scoring contests remain in the World Cup.Some countries place higher importance on finishing third than others - Croatia (1998) and Sweden (1994) celebrated their 'bronze' medal match wins after memorable campaigns but other countries use it as a chance to field fringe players who have been short on game time (France captain, Michel Platini, for instance, didn't play in 1982 or 1986).

And on occasion, the match can sum up the tone for teams, such as Brazil's painful 3-0 defeat to the Netherlands, which rubbed salt into the wounds from their 7-1 thrashing by Germany on home soil in 2014.

Anything else to look out for?
Finishing third or fourth may not make much difference in the grand scheme of things, it is important to remember goals scored in the third-place play-off count towards the Golden Boot prize.

Harry Kane has six goals to Romelu Lukaku's four, while Antoine Griezmann has three for France.With at least three goals scored in every third-place play-off since 1974, there are sure to be opportunities to move up the standings.

sbo888 In 1990 Salvatore Schillaci scored a penalty four minutes from time against England to seal the Golden Boot prize, while Davor Suker repeated the trick in 1998 and Thomas Muller did the same in 2010.
