Report: Tottenham in talks to seal £15m signing, confident of signing 23-yr-old ace

Tottenham are expected to sign the South Korean defender Kim Min-Jae this month. As per reports from Korea, the Londoners are negotiating his transfer with his club Beijing Guoan.

Jose Mourinho needs to improve his backline and Min-Jae could prove to be a bargain if he can adapt to the Premier League. He will add power, presence and aerial ability to the side. He could be a threat in the opposition box along with his defensive abilities. The playe...

‘They can be dangerous’ – Mourinho singles out five Newcastle players ahead of Spurs’ clash

Newcastle United host Tottenham Hotspur at St. James’ Park later today, and Spurs boss Jose Mourinho will hope to finally get his first Premier League win at the ground. The Portuguese has only won once at SJP, and it came during a Cup game during his first stint as Chelsea boss. Tottenham need three points at Newcastle’s expense to boost their chances of playing in Europe next term, but Mourinho is wary of the Magpies attack. Steve Bruce’s side have been impressive since Premier League action resumed last month, scoring 11 goals in six games. They have improved significantly in the final third, and Mourinho is aware that the quintet of Andy Carroll, Joelinton, Dwight Gayle, Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin have the quality to hurt Tottenham. “They play well, they have different ways...

Klopp explains why he is happy that Man. City are no longer banned from UCL

The Court of Arbitration for Sports overturned Manchester City’s two-year ban from the Champions League yesterday, with the Etihad Stadium outfit only told to pay a £9 million fine. While the decision left many fuming, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is happy that Pep Guardiola’s men will be playing in Europe next term. City will look to pip the Reds to the Premier League title next season after they were beaten to it with seven games remaining this term. Not playing in Europe would have massively boosted their chances of winning the domestic treble next term, and the Liverpool boss is glad that wouldn’t be happening. Klopp on City’s CL ban being lifted: “I am happy that City can play Champions League next year, if they had 10 or 12 less games to play next season I wouldn’...

‘Next up, deal is agreed!’: Many NUFC fans react as Saudi telecom look to buy out PL Tv deal

The last 24 hours have been a rollercoaster ride in the Newcastle United takeover saga, and not for the first time, it leaves the situation with endless possibilities. Richard Keys, the Tv Presenter for BeInSports, made a huge claim on Monday that the Premier League will give their nod to the Newcastle takeover within this week. We all know that the issue of piracy is the major stumbling block for the takeover to go through. BeIN SPORTS are the official partner of the Premier League and they are losing wealth following an unprecedented scale of piracy via satellite TV beoutQ. Craig Hope of The Daily Mail tweeted yesterday that the Premier League are expected to deliver the verdict in favour of the potential Newcastle owners shortly. But then the takeover saga has taken a complete twist aft...

Report claims the potential outcome of NUFC takeover after the BeIn ban in KSA

The Newcastle United takeover saga has taken an unexpected twist in the last 24 hours after the Saudi Arabian government took the decision to permanently ban the Premier League’s Qatar-based Middle East broadcast partner BeinSports from operating in the kingdom. As we all know, the issue of piracy is the major factor being the takeover process being delayed, and still it is everyone’s guess what the outcome will be. The potential owners – A Saudi-led consortium (PIF), Amanda Staveley and Reuben Brothers – are looking to buy Newcastle from Mike Ashley for £300m, and a part-payment has already been made in advance. However, the Premier League has taken 16 weeks to study the deal, and yet they couldn’t come to a conclusion. Just when it was thought that Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund w...

‘Doesn’t get the credit he deserves’ – Gary Lineker in awe of Chelsea star

Chelsea bounced back from Saturday’s disappointing 3-0 loss at the hands of Sheffield United to secure a vital 1-0 win over Norwich City last night. The relegated visitors had nothing to play for, but they proved hard to break down despite the Blues’ dominance, with goalkeeper Tim Krul thwarting most of the hosts’ efforts. Chelsea secured the opener through a brilliant Olivier Giroud header in the closing minutes of the first-half, and that was enough to seal valuable three points. The victory further boosted their chances of playing in the Champions League next term, with four points now between them and the chasing duo of Leicester City and Manchester United, who both play on Thursday. Chelsea play Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers next in the league and they will hope to secure all ...

Report: Man City set to beat Liverpool to the signature of in-demand £40m player

After triumphing in their legal battle to have Uefa’s two-year European ban overturned, Manchester City are now ready to spend big in the transfer market. City not only lost the Premier League title to Liverpool but they fell way behind their rivals in the 2019/20 season. Pep Guardiola will be looking to make necessary changes to the squad and he is looking to make some big signings. The Citizens would have lost more than £200 million in revenue if they had been suspended from European competitions. But now, they will be able to spend heavily once again in the summer transfer window.  According to reports from The Times, Manchester City are heavily interested in signing the highly-rated Valencia winger Ferran Torres this summer. Liverpool, Manchester United, Atletico Madrid, Ajax...

Report: Spurs dealt huge blow with midfielder injured & unlikely to face Newcastle

Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt another injury blow ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Newcastle United with midfielder Tanguy Ndombele likely to miss out on the trip. The France international picked up an injury in training and is a doubt for the crucial game.

Journalist claims Saudi have done exact opposite of what must be done to close NUFC deal

Saudi Arabia have permanently cancelled the licence of beIN Sports in their kingdom and fined them £2 million after accusing them of abusing their dominant position through several monopolistic practices. The Qatari broadcaster has been barred from broadcasting in the KSA since June 2017, and that made them file a complaint with the World Trade Organization in 2018. Qatar also accused Saudi of refusing to take action against alleged piracy of beIN Sports’ content by pirate satellite TV beoutQ. The conflict between both countries has hindered the Premier League from approving the £300 million takeover of Newcastle United by the Public Investment Fund, and KSA’s latest move has further complicated things. The Athletic’s investigations reporter Matt Slater, BBC’s Dan Roan and Daily Mail’s Cra...

‘Announcement is close’: Reliable journalist delivers latest Newcastle takeover update

For the past three months, there have been several instances where it felt like the Newcastle United takeover was close to completion. However, that hasn’t happened, and the saga has dragged on for months. The Premier League chief Richard Masters said last month that they will come to a decision shortly, but it hasn’t happened yet.
