Football news LIVE: Real Madrid tipped to WIN Bellingham race as Ronaldo FORCED into Man United stay… – The US Sun

  • October 12, 2022

KYLIAN MBAPPE has "already signed" a secret deal with Real Madrid, with the Frenchman desperate to leave PSG, according to blockbuster reports.
According to former player and current pundit Jan Aage Fjortoft, the France international is heading to Real after the 2022 World Cup either in January or the summer.
Fjortoft also claimed that the 23-year-old has already signed a secret deal with Los Blancos, who have been keeping tabs since last year.
He tweeted: "…Like I have said for a long time…after the World Cup Mbappe will join Real Madrid either in the first or the second transfer- window.
"My tip is that that deal is already signed and locked up someway."
Elsewhere, Liverpool winger Luis Diaz will be out of action until after the World Cup after picking up a knee injury in the loss to Arsenal at the weekend.

Mbappe Latest
The fallout continues from dramatic reports in Europe yesterday that Kylian Mbappe is done with PSG and looking to move.
The Frenchman's goal against Benfica secured a point for PSG in the Champions League last night.
After the game, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti was cagey on what Mbappe's situation meant for his club.
He told a journalist at a press conference: "You have the courage to ask that… I won’t answer."
Meanwhile PSG football adviser Luis Campos has said reports that Mbappe wanted out of Paris was news to him.
Luis Campos: "I speak to Kylian Mbappé every day and he has never told me that he wants to leave the club in January", tells RMC Sport. 🚨🔴🔵 #PSG

"I didn't have the chance to speak with Kylian about this story", PSG manager Galtier said after the game. pic.twitter.com/NTffpwFvLt
EFL Round-Up
Wigan finally got their first home win of the season as they beat inconsistent Blackburn last night.
They Latics were the only club in the division without a win on their own turf and Nathan Broadhead's goal means Blackburn's record after 14 games is bizarrely seven wins and seven defeats.
Charlton ended an eight game winless run in League 1 as they beat manageress Exeter. Addicks boss Ben Garner had warned before the game he would need time to perform "open-heart surgery" on the London side and the operation began last night with a convincing 4-2 win at the Valley.
Peterborough are up to 4th in League 1 after they made it three wins in four by beating Forest Green 4-1.
And Joey Barton's Bristol Rovers surged up the table after making it back-to-back wins with victory at struggling MK Dons last night.
The Start of Something Special
It was 26 years ago today that Arsene Wenger took charge of his first game in charge of Arsenal.
Ian Wright scored both goals at Ewood Park to wrap up the win, but few of the travelling Arsenal supporters could have envisioned that it would be the start of well over 1,000 games that the French manager would take charge of.
He would lead the club to three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups, along with a Champions League Final appearance in 2006.
Wenger would also transform the cultural perception in England of diet and nutrition, and become apart of several iconic Premier League moments.
The 72-year-old currently serves as FIFA's Chief of Global Football Development and has not returned to the dugout since leaving Arsenal in 2018.
Champions League round-up
Manchester City secured Champions League qualification after fighting their way to a 0-0 draw with FC Copenhagen.
Sergio Gomez was sent off in the first-half, Riyad Mahrez missed a penalty and Rodri had a rocket ruled out in an eventful night in Denmark.
Graham Potter made it four wins in a row as Chelsea boss as his Blues side won at AC Milan – but fans have been left sweating over Reece James after he was subbed off injured.
Antonio Rudiger scored a late equaliser to secure knock-out qualification for Real Madrid – but was left bloodied and bruised after colliding with the Shakhtar Donetsk keeper after his header.
Wantaway PSG star Kylian Mbappe scored in a 1-1 draw with Benfica, Juventus suffered a shock defeat away at Maccabi Haifa, and Celtic lost at home to RB Leipzig.
Wolves Blow
Julen Lopetegui has turned down the chance to manage Wolves due to family reasons.
Reports from last night and this morning suggest the Premier League side have failed in their pursuit to land the former Real Madrid boss.
They had appeared to be edging closer to a deal after Lopetegui was sacked by Sevilla.
But it now appears Wolves will have to look elsewhere in their bid to replace Bruno Lage.
Pedro Martins and Sean Dyche are now among the frontrunners for the Molineux hot seat.
Wolves currently sit in the relegation zone after a dreadful start to the season.
Juve in for Milinkovic-Savic
Manchester United have suffered a blow in their pursuit of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as Italian giants reportedly turn their attentions to him.
The Lazio man has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford.
And it appeared United's interest had been renewed in the summer under Erik ten Hag, before a move failed to materialise.
But the Red Devils may have missed their chance with reports from Italy suggesting Juventus are now preparing for a January move.
Following the injury to Paul Pogba, the Old Lady could be in need of more dynamism in midfield to help turn their campaign around.
An already poor start to the season for the Italian club became worse last night when they lost to Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League.
Good morning footy fans
Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe has “already signed” a secret deal with Real Madrid, according to sensational reports.
This comes amid claims suggesting Mbappe, 23, is “fed up” and wants to leave PSG as soon as possible with the relationship between both parties being “completely broken”.
The star striker is said to feel “betrayed” following a series of “unfeasible” promises he says were made to him by the club amid rumours suggesting he has also fallen out with team-mate Neymar.
According to former player and current pundit Jan Aage Fjortoft, the France international is heading to Real after the 2022 World Cup either in January or the summer.
Fjortoft also claimed that the 23-year-old has already signed a secret deal with Los Blancos, who have been keeping tabs since last year.
The FA could hire a LIP READER to help them work out what was said in the spat between Jordan Henderson and Gabriel Magalhaes.
The Liverpool captain and Arsenal centre-back clashed during Sunday’s Premier League game at the Emirates after Thiago Alcantara fouled Gabriel Jesus.
It is being reported by Sky Sports that the FA is considering using the services of a specialist speech expert to figure out exactly what was said and get to the bottom of the row.
However, SunSport understands they would only explore that avenue if the accounts from the two players are diametrically opposed.
There was a handful of Champions League fixtures last night.
Chelsea got an impressive win away at Milan, thanks partly to a red card from old boy Fikayo Tomori.
Celtic crashed out of the competition with a defeat at home to RB Leipzig.
Here is a rundown of the full scores.
Copenhagen 0-0 Manchester City
Maccabi Haifa 2-0 Juventus
PSG 1-1 Benfica
Dinamo Zagreb 1-1 RB Salzburg
Dortmund 1-1 Sevilla
AC Milan 0-2 Chelsea
Shakhtar Donetsk 1-1 Real Madrid
Celtic 0-2 RB Leipzig
World Cup injury blow for James
Reece James went off injured during Chelsea’s clash with AC Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The Blues defender was forced to make way just after the hour mark when he jarred his knee at the San Siro.
England right-back James was then replaced by Cesar Azpilicueta.
There has not yet been any confirmation of the severity of the Chelsea man’s injury.
The 22-year-old’s problem will be of major concern to national team boss Gareth Southgate with one month to go until the World Cup.
England suffered a blow last week when it was revealed that Kyle Walker is a doubt for the tournament after undergoing groin surgery.
Now there are fears James has his own fitness concerns following the knee issue he picked up in Italy.
Southgate does still have alternative options at right-back – a position England are blessed in.
Kieran Trippier and Trent Alexander-Arnold are both vying for a place in the squad that will go to Qatar.
Rudiger left bloodied after last-gasp Madrid equaliser
Former Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger put his body on the line to earn new club Real Madrid a precious point against Shakhtar Donetsk.
The German was seen with his face covered in blood after netting a 95th minute equaliser for Los Blancos.
Exiled Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donestk looked on the verge of bringing some joy to their war torn country when Oleksandr Zubkov gave them the lead just after half time.
But Rudiger then threw himself at a cross with almost the last kick of the game to beat goalkeeper Anatoliy Trubin to the ball and head into the net.
Trubin was also hurt in the collision and required his head bandaged up before the game could continue.
The draw in Poland represented the first points European champions Real Madrid have dropped in this season's group stage.

Gunners can put pressure on city, says Winterburn
Nigel Winterburn hopes Arsenal are still in the mix as the World Cup begins in November, writes Joshua Jones with the exclusive.
The Highbury hero, who won three league titles, told SunSport: “It would be a huge disappointment if Arsenal finished outside the top four, with the start that they’ve had. 
“At the start of the season, I said that top four is what Arsenal need and they also needed a big run, if not two big runs in the cup competitions.  
“From what they’ve done so far in the league, they’ve set themselves up beautifully. 
“League-wise, I know it’s early and we can get carried away but the way that they’ve played, I would expect them to be inside the top four at the end of the season.  
“Everybody still thinks that Manchester City are the team to beat, especially with their squad depth too. 
“With Erling Haaland in their team, they have a different dimension again this season with the goals he’s scoring. 
“If we [Arsenal] are not top of the league when we stop for the World Cup, I’d hope that we’re very close behind and that would be a sensational start to the season. 
“If Arsenal can keep this form going, then I certainly believe that they can put some pressure on City. But we don’t know if Arsenal can keep it going.  
“They had a poor start last season, then they had a great run and when they set themselves up to finish the season off, it fell apart. 
Mikel Arteta has to be wary of that but from what I’m seeing, and with the atmosphere inside the stadium, this is a different Arsenal this season.”
EXCLUSIVE – Arsenal must learn from previous slumps
Nigel Winterburn believes Arsenal must learn from their previous collapses to challenge Manchester City this season. 
But they are already reaping the rewards of adding two new experienced stars who have injected a “winning mentality” into the squad. 
Mikel Arteta’s side have made a stunning start to the season by winning eight of their first nine matches – including against top-four rivals Tottenham and Liverpool in their last two.
And with almost a quarter of the season played, they sit top of the table – a point clear of favourites City
But it did not take long for rival fans to highlight Arsenal’s 2004-05 and 2007-08 seasons – the only two times in Premier League history a team has started with 25 points from 27 but NOT lifted the title
Now Winterburn, 58, is hoping the Gunners stars can learn from teams of yesteryear – plus their own painful crumble to miss out on Champions League qualification last season – to go all the way this time around.

Rooney makes Keane's top three
Keane's trio of picks for best-ever Premier League stars was less controversial.
He chose former Old Trafford team-mates Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney, plus Arsenal's record scorer Thierry Henry.
Asked for his top three, he told Sky Sports: "Maradona would have to be up there, Ronaldo and I'd probably say Zidane for me.
"He has to be up there. I thought he was amazing. I was lucky enough to play against him – brilliant player, nasty, scored a goal, won the big prizes. It's hard to beat that."
Keane left out Ryan Giggs and Alan Shearer from his list of finest English top-flight aces.
He said: "Looking at players in the Premier League – Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Thierry Henry.
"They're the three I thought were excellent."
No Messi in Keane's top three of all-time
Roy Keane has landed a blow on Lionel Messi that's as fierce as one of his crunching tackles.
The Manchester United legend omitted seven-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi from his top three of all-time greats.
MaradonaCristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane made Keane's list.

Could Liverpool be in the mix for Mbappe?
PSG are willing to let Mbappe go – BUT on the condition that he doesn't join Real due to the two club's uneasy relationship.
That is why Mbappe's most likely way out of Paris would be if he joined Liverpool.
However, the Frenchman will be in Madrid on Wednesday to attend a a bullfight at the city’s famous Las Ventas arena, according to Cadena COPE.
The centre-forward will be joined by team-mates Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Keylor Navas as they will all have a day off after tonight's Champions League clash with Benfica.
The ex-Monaco star came close to leaving the Parisians in the summer on a free transfer until he snubbed Real and signed a mega-deal worth £650,000-a-week at Parc des Princes.
Mbappe 'already signed' with Real Madrid, claims Fjortoft

‘Where it started’ vs ‘How it’s STILL going’
David Beckham shared a tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo by showing a very young Lisbon starlet!
The former England star posted a throwback snap of a curly-haired kid whose own career has surpassed expectations.
He’s also one of the few players that 115-cap midfielder Beckham looked up to on the pitch.
The Portugal hero, 37, came off the bench on Sunday to hit his 700th club goal.
That helped the Red Devils sink Everton 2-1 at Goodison Park and go fifth.
Rangers not good enough for Liverpool, says Barnes
Ex Liverpool midfielder John Barnes was pretty scathing when he was predicting tomorrow evening's champions league clash between his old side and Rangers.
He spoke to BonusCodeBets and explained that the Glasgow side simply "aren't strong enough" to match Jurgen Klopp's team.
The ex-England star reckons the Reds will be fine at Ibrox, despite their recent poor form.
Barnes said: "I think Liverpool will win, but Rangers aren't strong enough.
"It's hard when the Scottish teams compete against the English teams because the quality of players differ. I expect Liverpool to win the game.
"I think Trent Alexander-Arnold will be fine playing against Rangers. I don't worry about him playing against the vast majority of teams.
"Man City may look at his defensive qualities but going forward, I don't think he'll struggle with what Rangers have to offer. "
More on the investigation
The English football chiefs launched an investigation into the altercation after it was included in Oliver's match report and will then decide if disciplinary action is required.
They have spoken to the Brazilian defender as part of their probe while it is understood Henderson has voiced his side of events, too.
The FA has so far declined to give any further guidance since confirming it was “aware of an incident that took place” in the game and that, after dialogue with the officials and clubs, it would “review the details of the incident”.
The fact that Oliver included the incident in his report but did not take any action on the field suggests he did not witness any of the allegations put forward.
Therefore, the FA want eye-witness reports before deciding if any action is required.
But the additional insight from an external professional may be helpful in determining the chain of events.
The FA could also ask PGMOL for the recording from Oliver’s microphone, in case anything of importance was picked up.
Neither Arteta nor Klopp commented on the incident after the Gunners' dramatic 3-2 win.
What happened in the clash between Arsenal and Liverpool?
Referee Michael Oliver halted the resumption of play for Arsenal’s winning penalty to speak to managers Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp on the touchline.
The official informed both bosses he would be formally reporting the allegations made to him on the pitch.
That followed a flare-up between Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson and Gabriel.
And now it is being reported by Sky Sports that the FA is considering using the services of a specialist speech expert to figure out exactly what was said and get to the bottom of the row.
However, SunSport understands they would only explore that avenue if the accounts from the two players are diametrically opposed.
FA to hire lip reader
The FA could hire a LIP READER to help them work out what was said in the spat between Jordan Henderson and Gabriel Magalhaes.
The Liverpool captain and Arsenal centre-back clashed during Sunday’s Premier League game at the Emirates after Thiago fouled Gabriel Jesus.
United watch Rangers youngster King
Manchester United have sent scouts to watch Rangers wonderkid Leon King, reports suggest.
King, 18, has been turning heads with some impressive performances in the Scottish Premiership and Champions League.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, United are among many clubs keeping tabs on the centre-back ahead of the January transfer window.
The Red Devils are facing competition from Newcastle as well as Leeds for the Scotland Under-17 international.
King has already amassed 10 appearances across all competitions this season with the Gers.
The 18-year-old made a good impression last week when he started against Liverpool at Anfield.
King's contract runs out in 2024 and his suitors are looking to take advantage of that major opportunity.
The defender joined Rangers' academy as a child where he developed into a highly-rated centre-back.
Ron and Messi to join forces?
Fans are dreaming of Cristiano Ronaldo finally teaming up with Lionel Messi as Kylian Mbappe eyes a PSG exit.
Manchester United's unsettled icon Ronaldo, 37, and PSG attacker Messi, 35, have been the duelling GOATS of football for two decades.
And social media ignited with talk of a link-up of legends after claims the French champions are willing to sell "fed-up" strike star Mbappe.
Many fans believe Ronaldo replacing him at PSG in January would be the perfect solution.
It's claimed the big-spending Parisiens won't let Mbappe go to Real Madrid and would prefer he went to Liverpool.
The speculation left supporters posting comments like: "Ronaldo to link up with Messi at PSG in January. Let's go."
