Neuer hints at Bayern departure in the future
Manuel Neuer has risked the wrath of Bayern Munich's fans by admitting he could leave the UEFA Champions League winners in the future.
Germany number one Neuer was not immediately accepted by the Bayern fans when he signed from rivals Schalke in 2011, but his performances over the past two seasons, including helping the club to a European and domestic treble this season, have helped ease their relationship.

Although the goalkeeper is sure that although his move to the Allianz Arena was the right one, he does not necessarily see his long-term future at the Bavarian club, despite being delighted with the club's recent successes.

"Winning the treble was confirmation for me that j ... Read more »

Modric rules out Mourinho reunion at Chelsea
premier league
Luka Modric has ruled out following Jose Mourinho from Real Madrid to Chelsea as he is living out a dream playing in the Spanish capital.
The Croatia international was signed by Mourinho in August 2012 and made 53 appearances in his debut season for the Spanish club, scoring four goals.

His creativity and ability to perform under pressure endeared him to the new Chelsea boss who was believed to be interested in taking him back to the Premier League but Modric has ruled out any reunion with the 50-year-old.

The 27-year-old admitted he was disappointed to see Mourinho leave the Bernabeu, and although he is sure his former manager will be a success at his new club, he has no ... Read more »

Porto appoint Paulo Fonseca as new manager
Porto have announced that Pacos Ferreira manager Paulo Fonseca will replace Vitor Perreira as head coach.
Fonseca impressed last season as he guided Pacos Ferreira to third place in the league, their highest-ever finish, to seal a spot in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers despite working a much smaller budget compared to their illustrious opponents. 

His work has been rewarded with a move to the reigning Primeira Liga champions, the 40-year-old leaves Pacos after one year in charge and has signed a two-year contract at Estadio do Dragao.

Fonseca replaces Vitor Perreira who left to manage Al Ahli after guiding the club to two league titles in two seasons, and will be challenged with improving the club's performances in ... Read more »

Cavani uncertain of his future
Edinson Cavani has admitted his future at Napoli is uncertain, with talks over a move from Stadio San Paolo set to escalate.
After 36 goals in 41 appearances for Napoli this season, the striker is thought to be at the top of Premier League duo Manchester City and Chelsea's shopping lists for the off-season.

And Cavani has fuelled rumours of a move from the Serie A, admitting he is in talks that have left him doubtful over a long-term stay at Napoli.

However, with his current focus on a FIFA Confederation Cup campaign with Uruguay, Cavani is doing his utmost to put thoughts of a potential money-spinning transfer to the back of his mind.

He told OMNISPORT: "To ... Read more »

Silva keen for PSG to sign Rooney
Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva has spoken of his desire for England international Wayne Rooney to join the Ligue 1 club.
Rooney had a transfer request rejected by Manchester United at the end of the 2012-13 season, but continues to be linked with a move away from the Premier League champions.

PSG are thought to be interested in acquiring his services, and would be one of few clubs in Europe with the financial capability to put a deal together.

And Brazil international Silva is keen for such a transfer to come together.

"I love this player," he said ahead of Brazil's friendly meeting with France on Monday.

The Frenchman recovered from a liver transplant to return to first-team action in April, coming off the bench during the Catalan outfit's 5-0 win over Mallorca.

However, Barcelona have opted against renewing the 33-year-old's contract, and he is now considering his options.

"Guardiola knows my situation and he would be delighted to have me on his team," Abidal told French football programme Telefoot.

Rogne set to leave Celtic
Celtic defender Thomas Rogne believes it is likely he will leave the Scottish Premier League champions in the off-season.
The Norwegian, who is able to exit Celtic Park for nothing when his contract expires in three weeks' time, was offered a new deal by the club in February, but he turned it down.

And after suffering with several injuries during his time in Scotland, he admits that it is probable he will depart the club following his participation at the European Under-21 Championship.

Having joined Neil Lennon's side in January 2010, Rogne also did not rule out a venture to a new country, after three-and-a-half years on British soil.

"I still have a month ... Read more »

Butcher worried about England future
Former England captain Terry Butcher is concerned about how Roy Hodgson's side will fare at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, if they qualify.
Butcher – who played for England at three World Cups and made 77 appearances for his country – does believe they will make their way out of a tricky group and qualify for next year's event in Brazil.

But achieving any success beyond that is unlikely according to the former defender, who believes the fact that many of England's players are not first-team regulars for their clubs is hurting the team.

"Despite England's gritty draw (a 2-2 stalemate against Brazil) in the Maracana last Sunday, I worry about my country’s future at the top level of international football," Butcher wrote in his column ... Read more »

Schweinsteiger hungry for more success
Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger insists he is eager to earn more silverware, after completing the treble with the club.
The Germany international was a key member of the team that brought home the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and the UEFA Champions League titles, a feat that had never before been achieved in Germany.

And with the imminent arrival of Pep Guardiola to the club, Schweinsteiger is confident of achieving more success.

"My title hunger has increased by winning the title, not decreased," he said in Bild am Sonntag.

"It is certainly very good for the self-confidence. We will go into the new ... Read more »

Ancelotti suited to Real, says Perez
Paris Saint-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti would be the ideal replacement for Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid, according to the club's president.
Ancelotti – who led PSG to their first Ligue 1 title in 19 years last season – has been linked with the vacant post at the Bernabeu after Mourinho left to rejoin Premier League giants Chelsea.

Real president Florentino Perez believes Ancelotti would be perfectly suited to the job, and admitted he had thought about offering him the job previously.

A stumbling block could be the fact Ancelotti is contracted in Paris until the end of the 2013-14 season, but Perez's comments hinted at negotiations with the French side.

He t ... Read more »

Chelsea will keep De Bruyne
premier league
Jose Mourinho wants to keep Kevin De Bruyne at Chelsea next season, according to Bayer Leverkusen general manager Michael Reschke.
The Bundesliga club have been strongly linked with a loan move for the Belgium international, along with domestic rivals Borussia Dortmund.

It has also been claimed De Bruyne could be used as a makeweight in the deal that is likely to see Leverkusen star Andre Schurrle move to Stamford Bridge ahead of next season.

However, Reschke has quashed rumours of a move for the playmaker, who is set to be given a chance to shine in the English top flight, 18 months after being signed by the London club from Genk.

Martinez will not pressure Fellaini to stay
premier league
New Everton boss Roberto Martinez will not speak to Marouane Fellaini about his future, despite speculation about a potential departure.
Fellaini has been widely linked with a move to Manchester United following former Everton manager David Moyes' move to Old Trafford, with Arsenal also thought to be rivalling bidders.

And with Fellaini having a reported release clause of 22 million pounds, Martinez may have no say in the future of the Belgian midfielder.

But Martinez – who says speculation surrounding Fellaini is unavoidable – revealed he will not hold talks with the 25-year-old in a bid to convince him to stay.

Hughes excited to work with Adam
premier league
New Stoke City manager Mark Hughes says Charlie Adam will be a key part of his plans at the Britannia Stadium.
Adam – who moved from Liverpool to Stoke last season – made 27 Premier League appearances for the club before falling out of favour with former boss Tony Pulis.

He was dropped from Stoke's first team and lost his regular place with Scotland also, but Hughes is set on rejuvenating Adam's career.

And making the former Rangers midfielder comfortable in his set-up is one of Hughes' first priorities at Stoke.

He said: "I'm looking forward to working with Charlie day in day out and it will be an excit ... Read more »
