'I ALWAYS GIVE MY BEST FOR THE PEOPLE THAT TRUST ME!' - IS THERE A RIFT BETWEEN POGBA & MOURINHO?

Football Fever Every time.

The midfielder scored in the win over Leicester City but his post-match comments, and activity on social media, suggest he may not be completely happy
Is there a rift between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho?
The midfielder, who won the World Cup with France in the summer, was a surprise starter against Leicester City in Manchester United's Premier League opener, opening the scoring for his side in a 2-1 win.
Rumours of a move to Barcelona and Juventus have surfaced in recent weeks, however, and Goalunderstands the Red Devils are unwilling to let the 25-year-old leave this summer .

There have also been persistent murmurings of a broken relationship with Mourinho, with Pogba having failed to hit top form in a 2017-18 season that saw United finish 19 points behind Manchester City in the table.
Indeed, Pogba stepped up and played a starring role to help France win the World Cup, scoring in the final victory over Croatia.
And he demonstrated just how important he is to United on Friday night, scoring from the spot to put Mourinho's men in front early on and generally controlling play in the middle of the park throughout .
Praising his "monster" performance after the game having handed the armband to Pogba, Mourinho told reporters: "[It] was not hard [to pick Pogba from the start]. 
"The decision belonged to him, because Andreas Pereira comes from Valencia bench as a winger to play number six; Fred had 10 days training, Ukrainian league, comes direct to Old Trafford; Ander Herrera injured.

After teaming for intimates, watches and Adidas by Stella McCartney tennis attire, Caroline Wozniacki is adding sunglasses to the mix. Her capsule collection for Ovvo Optics features 11 men’s and women’s styles named after friends and family, as well as famous Danes such as Viggo Mortensen and Karl Lagerfeld muse and model Freja Beha Erichsen. It’s the New Jersey-based eyewear firm’s first collaboration and foray into fashion. The company didn’t have a hard time convincing the 2018 Australian Open champion — who lives in sunglasses in her downtime, whether on a jet ski or at the beach — to sign on.

“The partnership gives me the opportunity to really design and be involved in the whole process,” she said, during a photo shoot on a vintage boat in Biscayne Bay. “We got out a big picture of my face and started drawing prototypes on it.”
She liked the brainstorming session’s inaugural round frames so much they begat the Caroline style. Each pair, from aviators to a butterfly, has Carl Zeiss lenses and Ovvo’s signature surgical steel and titanium composite frames, which are manufactured in Poland on its exclusive machines once used to build spacecraft. The company’s innovative materials and construction-like screwless hinges appealed to her practical side and athletic sensibility.



“It was important to me that they’re light and can be worn for hours and that they don’t slide off your face,” Wozniacki said.
Women’s metal colorways include black, gold and graphite, while men’s divert slightly, such as the Roger [Federer]’s black pattern matte and the David [Lee]’s retro brown. Lenses also vary in feminine hues — plum gradient, pink and yellow duotone.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri 'bored' by transfer market

Football Fever Every time.

Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri declares his disinterest in the transfer market, emphasising his task as manager is to grow the players he currently has. Stewart Robson delves into how Maurizio Sarri transformed Napoli and what he'll need to do to replicate a similar turnaround at Stamford Bridge. With Maurizio Sarri's appointment at Chelsea now official, Gab Marcotti explains what the former Napoli manager brings to Stamford Bridge. With Antonio Conte on his way out at Chelsea, ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti reflects on the Italian's tenure and what led to his undoing. Gab Marcotti discusses the latest developments in the Conte-Sarri saga and what's keeping the former Napoli manager from moving to Stamford Bridge. Gab Marcotti puts himself in the shoes of the Chelsea brass and explains why the club should hold off on replacing Antonio Conte with Maurizio Sarri.
Maurizio Sarri insisted that he is not interested in directing Chelsea's transfer policy but indicated that he would like to see both Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois remain at Stamford Bridge this summer.
Antonio Conte was sacked to pave the way for Sarri's appointment last week after months of tensions with the Chelsea board over recruitment, as well as clashes with senior players such as Diego Costa, David Luiz and Willian.
Sarri gained a reputation in Italy for not focusing the transfer market, and in front of watching board members Marina Granovskaia and Bruce Buck, he reiterated that, as head coach, he views his responsibility as to work with his players on the training pitch.
"I feel much more a pitch manager, a field manager than a general manager," he said via a translator. "I think I'm one of the few managers who is bored by the transfer market. I don't want to talk about it and I'm not that interested in it. Our task as managers is growing the players we have."
While Sarri is unlikely to make the kind of waves that Conte did with his pointed comments about Chelsea's shortcomings in the transfer market, he did reveal that he has discussed potential summer targets with the club, focusing on midfield.
Chelsea completed a £50 million deal to sign Italy international playmaker Jorginho at the weekend and are reportedly close to adding Aleksandr Golovin from CSKA Moscow.
"I spoke with the football club and said ideally I think that a pinch of quality is lacking in our central midfield for a certain kind of play, otherwise they are at a very high level," he said. "At the end of the transfers it will be up to me to understand what kind of football is suitable to the final squad.
"I cannot claim to come here and change 20 players. I must adapt to Chelsea and the players, and we will see at the end whether we must change something in my game because of the characteristics of the squad."
Chelsea have big decisions to make in the coming weeks about Hazard and Courtois, who both publicly courted interest from Real Madrid after Belgium's victory over England in the World Cup third-place playoff on Saturday.
Sources have told ESPN FC that Chelsea are focused on keeping Hazard despite his comments and Madrid's interest, and Sarri admitted that he would rather not lose any of the squad's key players before the Aug. 9 transfer deadline.
"Clearly, we would like to keep the strongest players," he said. "This is what any manager wants and any clubs wants. Then we will have to see how the transfer market will go over the next few days."
"I think he [Hazard] is one of the top two or three European players. I hope I will manage to improve him -- this is very difficult given the level he has reached."
Asked if he could improve Hazard in the spectacular way he managed with Dries Mertens at Napoli, Sarri said that it is not the same situation.
"With Mertens it was different -- Dries had also been an external striker and everyone thinks by necessity that he became a very high level player," he said. "Dries has improved with me but he started at a lower level. I hope Hazard will improve with me but it will be difficult."

Alison Becker Tweets 'I'm Joining Liverpool'... But All Is Not As It Seems.

Football Fever Every time.

With speculation rife about Liverpool lodging a bid for Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker, one tweet caused a stir on Tuesday - but it was a case of mistaken identity.
American actress and comedian Alison Becker, who has starred in TV shows like MTV's Boiling Points and NBC's Parks and Recreation, picked up on the unfolding news story and put the cat among the pigeons with her message on social media.
With a tweet that simply said "Excited to announce that I will be joining Liverpool as a goalkeeper", the American Becker garnered over 17,000 retweets and 44,000 likes, adding to the media storm around a potentially record-breaking transfer for the Brazil international stopper.
Once the sports world had cottoned onto the joke, she followed up with a self-deprecating tweet saying: "I 'get' sports so hard."

The New Jersey actress tweeted the news on Tuesday, telling her 18.1k followers that she was "Excited to announce that I will be joining Liverpool as a goalkeeper!"

Reds supporters quickly saw the funny side, retweeting the post over 5,000 times and liking it over 11,000 times within a hour of it being posted, even though some initially fell for it.

It's on!

Sadly, it does not appear as the reds will make Alison's dream a reality.

As for Alisson, Liverpool face competition from Chelsea for the 25-year-old, but stay confident that they can get the deal done.

Transfer news, rumours LIVE: Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus, Arsenal sign Lucas Torreira, Manchester United eye winger, Liverpool latest gossip

Football Fever Every time.

The Premier League’s summer transfer window is open with Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal set to be busier than ever.
Liverpool enjoyed success in the Champions League this year and their quest to end their league title drought in 2019 will be bolstered by the arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig. He will not be the last new face on Merseyside, however, with Monaco's Fabinho already in. Stoke's Xherdan Shaqiri could be next or even Real Madrid's Marco Asensio? At United Jose Mourinho looks set to spend big again as he targets reinforcements in his bid to haul in record-breaking Manchester City next season. He's got Fred but another central midfield player is high on his list with a big money move for Gareth Bale not out the question.
For the first time in over two decades Arsenal head into the offseason with a new manager at the helm. That man is former PSG boss Unai Emery after a stunning 11th hour change of heart at the Emirates and he already has two new signings and plenty more on the way with a new central midfielder next on his shopping list. Chelsea are close to appointing a new manager themselves but across London Mauricio Pochettino won't be leaving Tottenham Hotspur after signing a new five-year deal. 
We will have all the latest news, views, rumours, gossip and done deals right here so don't touch that dial.

New updates availableRefresh 2018-07-10T17:15:42.000Z
So who next?
President Florentino Perez is now thought to be focused on the future of the club, and the need to soon reshape the side while ensuring the same glamour and marketing value is maintained.
It is well known that he would like to fund a move for one of Neymar or Kylian Mbappefrom Paris Saint-Germain this summer, while Chelsea’s Eden Hazard is also a target.
Whoever Real Madrid decide to pursue, you can be sure they will look to immediately reinvest the £88m they have made by moving on Ronaldo.
2018-07-10T16:50:42.000Z
Cristiano Ronaldo has written an open letter to Real Madrid fans explaining why he asked to leave the club after nine years. 
The Portuguese forward signed from Manchester United in the summer of 2009 but is leaving for a "new step" at Juventus. 
2018-07-10T16:35:42.000Z
Real Madrid have revealed why they have sold Cristiano Ronaldoto Juventus, in a statement published shortly after the 33-year-old completed his transfer to the Italian club.
Ronaldo joined Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009 and has enjoyed an unprecedented period of success with the club.
However this summer Ronaldo “expressed his wishes” to quit the Bernabau, with Real seemingly left with little choice but to sell him.
2018-07-10T16:20:42.000Z
They spent nearly £90m to sign Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli in 2016, when he was seen as the final piece needed to win their first European Cup since the mid-1990s, but the reality has been more difficult.
It will require some financial manoeuvring on the part of the Italians and Higuain himself could become a casualty with Chelsea linked to the Argentina forward.
But in black and white terms, Ronaldo’s expected gross remuneration of around €60m (£53m) remains around 40% of Juve's current wage bill and though this has not put off the Agnelli family, who own a controlling stake in the club, it will almost certainly push the club into selling players. 
Madrid want to stage manage any departure and give Ronaldo the farewell his goal-laden time in the Spanish capital deserves.
Their next focus is on signing Neymar or Kylian Mbappe this summer as part of their desire to make the squad younger, but Eden Hazard has emerged as an alternative should Paris Saint-Germain stonewall advances over their superstar attacking duo. 
2018-07-10T16:05:42.000Z
The Portuguese forward’s up-and-down relationship with the Bernabéu club over the past few seasons hit a new low in the immediate aftermath of winning the Champions League in Kiev, where he reopened the subject of his future in interviews on the field before a single celebratory firework had even been lit.
It was the latest in a series of unsubtle efforts from Ronaldo at getting an improved contract, with the Real Madrid man’s entourage believing he was due a significant salary increase in the wake of Lionel Messi and Neymar being handed bigger deals. 
And while he tried to walk back his comments the following day, this time Real Madrid haven’t been willing to play ball and intermediaries let it be known to a gaggle of top European clubs in late June that the 33-year-old forward could be available for as little as €100m (£88m).
In the end, Juventus - serial losing finalists in the Champions League who are desperate to get over the hump and return to the peak of European football - were the only team to show serious interest and after weighing up the significant financial outlay, the Serie A giants are keen to press ahead with a deal.
2018-07-10T15:51:17.826Z
The 33-year-old reigning Ballon d'Or winner will join the Serie A champions after a deal was struck understood to be in the region of £88million.
The Champions League winners confirmed the news with a statement on Wednesday afternoon insisting that Ronaldo himself had asked to leave the club.
"Real Madrid communicate that, adhering to the expressed wishes of the player Cristiano Ronaldo, it has agreed his transfer to Juventus," they said. "Today Real Madrid would like to express its thanks to a player that has shown himself to be the best in the world and who has led one of the most brilliant eras in the history of our club and world football.
"Beyond the titles won, the trophies and the triumphs on the field of play in these nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of hard work, responsibility, talent and achievement.
"He has become beyond that the greatest goalscorer in the history of Real Madrid with 451 goals in 438 games. In total 16 titles, among them four European Cups, three of those consecutive and four in the last five seasons.
"For Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of the great idols and an example for future generations. Real Madrid will always be his home."
2018-07-10T15:46:44.816Z
Yes, it's actually happened.
Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Real Madrid for Juventus.
2018-07-10T15:30:04.150Z
Cristiano Ronaldo’s entourage has met with Juventus as the Italian giants look to pull off a previously unthinkable coup and sign the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
The Portuguese forward’s up-and-down relationship with the Bernabéu club over the past few seasons hit a new low in the immediate aftermath of winning the Champions League in Kiev, where he reopened the subject of his future in interviews on the field before a single celebratory firework had even been lit.
It was the latest in a series of unsubtle efforts from Ronaldo at getting an improved contract, with the Real Madrid man’s entourage believing he was due a significant salary increase in the wake of Lionel Messi and Neymar being handed bigger deals.

Brazil vs. Belgium 2018 World Cup quarterfinal: Belgium stuns Brazil, 2-1

Football Fever Every time.

Belgium 2, Brazil 1
With a blistering counterattack and sturdy goaltending, Belgium shocked Brazil, 2-1, in a World Cup quarterfinal Friday to become one of the tournament’s last four teams standing.
Brazil’s loss continued a string of World Cup upsets that previously eliminated heavyweights Germany, Argentina, and Spain. France is now the only remaining country in this tournament that has won a World Cup within the past 50 years. All six remaining teams are from Europe, including all four participants in Saturday’s final two quarterfinals, guaranteeing the first all-European semifinal round since 2006.
Belgium’s near-perfect first half set the pace. After an early scare — a well-executed Neymar corner kick — the Red Devils roared back with two goals in 19 minutes. Vincent Kompany’s header struck Brazilian defender Fernandinho for an own goal in the 13th minute. In the 32nd minute, a wicked Belgian counterattack found midfielder Kevin De Bruyne 22 yards out for a shot that might have left a vapor trail.
Brazil finally found the score sheet in the 75th minute, when substitute Renato Augusto finished a header off a cross from Philippe Coutinho.
Coutinho had a chance to tie the match minutes later off a lovely tap pass from Neymar, but his chance flew over the crossbar. Neymar had a chance to equalize himself, but Belgian keeper Thibaut Courtois was equal to the task and flicked the shot over top of the net.
Belgium will face France Tuesday in St. Petersburg in a semifinal, its first trip back to that round since finishing fourth in 1986.

Halftime update: Belgium 2, Brazil 0
After a first half in which everything went Belgium’s way, the Red Devils finish the first 45 minutes ahead of Brazil, 2-0. Belgium survived an early scare — a well-executed Neymar corner kick — to roar back with two goals in 19 minutes.
Vincent Kompany’s header struck Brazilian defender Fernandinho for an own goal in the 13th minute. In the 32nd minute, a wicked Belgian counterattack found midfielder Kevin De Bruyne 22 yards out for a shot that might have left a vapor trail. The last time Brazil, the five-time champions, fought back from a two-goal deficit in a World Cup match was in the 1938 third-place match against Sweden.
***
First-half updates
Goal Belgium!
Belgium is well in charge now. Kevin De Bruyne’s laser beam from 22 yards out in the 32nd minute put the Red Devils up, 2-0, on Brazil. The score came off a counterattack from a Brazilian corner. Belgium’s defense cleared the cross and striker Romelu Lukaku took the ball 45 yards from his own net. He ran the midfield and beat two Brazilian defenders before his pass found De Bruyne, who stepped into a wonder strike. The score puts the Seleção firmly on its heels early in the game.
Goal Belgium!
As the game speeds up and gets increasingly disorganized, both sides have begun to rely on set pieces. The Red Devils struck first in the 13th minute off a brilliantly executed corner. Vincent Kompany flicked a header toward his compatriots in the six-yard box, but the ball caught the shoulder of Brazil’s Fernandinho instead and found the back of the net.
Brazil gets the first chance
Off a Neymar-struck corner, Thiago Silva got his thigh on the cross inside the six-yard box and the ricochet caught Belgian keeper Thibaut Courtois by surprise. The effort nicked the post and bounced wide and Belgium countered with an offensive charge of its own.
The game has opened up early. Both sides are playing with speed and pressuring the ball the full length of the field. Twelve minutes into the game, there have been seven shots on goal.
Starting lineups announced
Pregame thoughts
It’s the best of South America against perhaps the best that’s left of Europe for a spot in the semifinals. Brazil sailed past Mexico to reach the quarterfinals, while Belgium fended off Japan with a winning goal in added time, becoming the first team to win a World Cup knockout round match after trailing by at least two goals since 1970.
There’s plenty of anticipation in this round for both sides. Each entered the tournament among the title favorites, and nothing thus far has changed those expectations. Brazil is the oddsmakers’ favorite to win the championship, and Belgium isn’t far behind, having scored 12 goals, three more than any other team. Their championship pedigrees, however, are far different. Brazil, five-time champions, is in the quarterfinals for the seventh straight World Cup. Belgium has been this far just once since 1986 — and not beyond.
For Brazil, hopes lie on the feet of world class forward Neymar, but Paulinho and Philippe Coutinho have combined for some brilliant offense that has stretched defenses and only strengthened the Seleção’s possession-oriented game.
For Belgium, the Red Devils will fight for a share of the ball, something Brazil isn’t fond of giving up. Eden Hazard (two goals, two assists in three matches) will be key in keeping the side on time in the attacking half. Midfielder Kevin De Bruyne will help funnel the ball forward and keep the Red Devils connected down the field. The winner will face France, a 2-0 winner over Uruguay earlier Friday, in a Tuesday semifinal.

    Cristiano Ronaldo-to-Juventus transfer rumors: Latest news on Real Madrid star linked to Italy move and what to know

    Football Fever Every time.
    Ronaldo leaving Madrid? Photo: Reuters

    With Portugal out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup after a loss to Uruguay in the round of 16, the annual Cristiano Ronaldo summer transfer saga is upon us. Ronaldo has been linked in the past with with teams like Paris Saint-Germain and his former club, Manchester United, but the latest team connected with the Portuguese superstar is one he's done some damage against: Juventus. 
    Spanish publication Marca is reporting that the Ronaldo is "moving further" away from the club, and that Real Madrid is obligated to accept a deal. The publication went as far as to say that he will be wearing the colors of Juventus next season, barring any late change. 
    Spanish program "El Chiringuito de Jugones" is reporting that the player will move to Juventus for $116.57 million.
    As always during the transfer window, let's sort out this transfer fodder and give you everything you need to know:
    What's the latest news?
    Luciano Moggi, the former Juventus CEO, once tried to sign Ronaldo as a teenager. Now, he's saying that it's a done deal. Here's what the 80-year-old told an Italian television station, per beIN Sports: "In my opinion, he has already signed and passed the medical examination with Juventus in Munich."
    "This is what I think after talking to important people."
    Moggi, bear in mind, resigned from Juventus in 2006 and swore off soccer for his involvement in Italy's massive refereeing scandal. 
    However, there are other reports that indicate that a deal is very much in place. Portuguese publication Record is reporting that Juventus has a four-year contract worth $35 million annually, not to mention a $116.57-million buyout. Neymar's $259.48-million buyout from Barcelona to go to Paris St. Germain last summer is still the largest that a club has triggered, however.
    Per Record: "[Real Madrid president] Florentino Perez summoned [Ronaldo's agent] Jorge Mendes for an emergency meeting, which lasted until dawn with a conclusion: Ronaldo finally closed the door on Real Madrid, as Record reported in the June 1 edition, and accepted Juventus' proposal."
    Juventus is keeping silent on the negotiations, with GM Giuseppe Marotta saying "I will not speak" per ESPN when pressed on whether or not Juventus fans can consider Ronaldo to their team a done deal by a Sky Sports Italia reporter.
    Why would Ronaldo leave Real Madrid?
    Ronaldo has had several rocky offseasons and has been linked with a move away from Real Madrid all the time. He's won everything there is to win at the club, and maybe he wants another challenge. After winning the Champions League title for the third consecutive season, here's what he told reporters after the match:
    It was very nice to be at Real Madrid ... In the coming days I will give a response to the fans, who have always been at my side.
    It's worth noting that the very next day at Real Madrid's victory parade and before reporting to the Portuguese national team training camp leading up to the start of the World Cup, Ronaldo vaguely hinted that he could be back at Madrid next season. He was heard saying on the microphone, "until next year," at the end of the event. 
    It remains to be seen if there was a deeper fallout between the star player and the club directory over the last month. But in all seriousness, perhaps he's seeking a change of scenery after accomplishing everything possible at Real Madrid, and especially after dodging prison time for tax evasion in Spain. 
    What would the transfer mean for Juventus?
    The Italians would be getting the most in-form attacker in the world. He was exceptional at the World Cup and even at the age of 33, he's got plenty of gas left in the tank due to his phenomenal shape. With the potential exit of Gonzalo Higuain, Juventus would need a star man in the final third as it looks to get over the hump and win the Champions League. And for $116.57 million, it's a steal even in this market, considering he went for €94 million to Real Madrid in 2009. With this market, he's a player worth at least €175 million. 
    What would his departure mean for Real Madrid?
    The golden era of the new millennium may be coming to an end at the Bernabeu if this happens. Sergio Ramos doesn't have much left (as we've witnessed at the World Cup), Zinedine Zidane just left as manager, and there are plenty of question marks. You can count on Real Madrid buying some great players to replace him if a move goes through. 
    What's next?
    Something official. These reports could turn out to be true or quite the opposite. Ronaldo hasn't publicly said whether or not he wants to leave. So, only time will tell. He's on vacation now after Portugal was eliminated from the World Cup, and we'll have to keep an eye on what happens over the next few weeks. Players are expected to join their clubs at the end of the month for preseason, and whether Ronaldo shows up in Madrid will tell us plenty.
