Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane seemed keener to keep hold of Ronaldo than Bale. I’m not against persevering with Van Gaal but, short-term, I’m not sure he can coach the necessary goals out of Rooney or put Martial on the fast track he needs to place United in contention. Way before Wayne Rooney was chasing a ball about for DC United in Washington you may recall he started his career at Everton. Everton would ideally like to sell the Colombia international whether they survive relegation or not, but his injury woes may result in a reluctance from potential suitors to sign him this summer.
Chelsea supporters had grown tired of Marcos Alonso’s lapses of concentration, particularly in defence, and his assists record suffered as a result too. Given how much more solid he has made Chelsea barring his role in the penalty conceded at Everton, there is no surprise as to why the Blues are looking to keep him as part of a squad where many young players form a crux of the roster.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has lifted the iconic Champions League trophy for a third straight year. Among them is expected to be Stephen Darby, the proud husband of captain Steph Houghton, who announced today he will be jetting out despite being diagnosed with motor neuron disease just months ago. Some team-mates have publicly backed Rapinoe – who has accepted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s invitation to visit the House of Representatives – in her opposition to Trump. Trump didn’t appreciate Rapinoe expressing her individual preference for doing almost anything other than joining this particular POTUS for a photo shoot. He would send local members of staff at the club messages before derby games saying: ‘We’re doing this for you’. The Beatles can then be seen boarding the plane for a concert at Candie Gardens, Guernsey, even doing a spot of in flight filming.
If they built a thriving business over 40 years, employing 50 or more people and accrued a good retirement pot by selling for £10m, then in my book they do deserve it. The black stripes from the Puma template sadly take the edge off this though and do not look as good as the blue and white colours that replaced them on a previously leaked picture.
