I Rejected Offers From Three Clubs In Champions League – Suso

AC Milan midfielder Suso says he has turned down the opportunity to join a club who can offer him Champions League football as he favours a longer stay at the Serie A club. Suso, who joined Milan in 2015 but spent the first six months of 2016 on loan at Genoa, is hoping to sign a new contract with the San Siro club. The former Liverpool man says he has been left waiting since December to finalise a deal, but in the meantime he has received attractive offers to leave Milan. “First of all I would like to thank the fans for their many messages,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “I would like to let them know that we had an agreement in December and I have been waiting since. “I spoke with [Milan general manager Marco] Fassone back then and he told me that there was no problem.

With 31 goals in 32 league games, Borussia Dortmund forward is hot property across Europe but he is set to snub the glamour of European football for the riches of Asia.

Naby Keita Declares Love For Leipzig Amid Liverpool Transfer Talk

Reported Liverpool target Naby Keita has told German newspaper Welt he loves Leipzig, whose football team he helped to second place in the Bundesliga last season. Keita, whom RB Leipzig value at a reported £70 million, is being tracked by a number of clubs, with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp an admirer. The Guinea international joined the club last summer from Red Bull Salzburg for £12.75m. His successful season, in which he helped Leipzig secure Champions League football, has enhanced his reputation. And although that is likely to see a number of rivals test RB Leipzig’s resolve, Keita said: “I love Leipzig and I will never forget this city.” A year ago, the 22-year-old claimed he had been approached by a number of English clubs. “Arsenal, Southampton, Manchester City a...

Sanchez Makes History As Chile Draw With Germany

Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez became Chile’s all-time top-scorer with his 38th international goal in Thursday’s 1-1 draw with Germany at the Confederations Cup. The Gunners’ star, voted man of the match, wrote himself into the record books by capitalising on an early mistake in the German defence. However, Lars Stindl netted his second goal of the tournament to equalise for the world champions just before the break to eventually share the points. The result leaves Chile top of Group B on goal difference from Germany. With both teams on four points, three ahead of Australia and Cameroon who drew 1-1 earlier, they are in pole position to reach next week’s semi-finals. Germany play Cameroon on Sunday in Sochi while Chile face the Socceroos in Moscow. Despite leaving all his World...

Liverpool Reject £11m Moreno Transfer Bid From Napoli

Liverpool have rejected an £11m bid from Napoli for left-back Alberto Moreno, according to Sky Sports. The 24-year-old is of interest to Sevilla as well as two other Premier League clubs, Sky Sports reports. Liverpool value Moreno at £15m and are unwilling to let him leave for less than that figure, having signed him for £12m from Sevilla three years ago. The Spain international’s arrival in 2014 was part of a major recruitment drive in Brendan Rodgers’ third season in charge, in which they signed eight new players for a cost of over £117m. Moreno was first-choice initially but has struggled to progress and nail down a first-team place under Jurgen Klopp, who moved veteran midfielder James Milner to left-back for the majority of last season instead. Moreno, who has three cap...

Chelsea’s Hazard Must Be Stopped From Joining Real Madrid – Cole

Hazard is recovering after undergoing surgery on his ankle that he injured in a training session with Belgium after the 2016-17 season ended and could miss several games at the start of the new campaign. Cole thinks that Hazard is the best player in the league and, while his injury is a blow for his former side, he is glad that it could hinder Zinedine Zidane’s attempts to sign him. “He is fantastic.

Liverpool And Roma Continue Talks Over Salah Transfer

Liverpool and Roma remain in talks over winger Mohamed Salah, Sky Sports reports.
