Ante Rebic Has Been the Key to Milan’s Surprising Resurgence

Ante Rebic is Milan's top scorer this season with 12 goals - despite barely featuring in the first half of the season | Marco Luzzani/Getty ImagesA bit-part player at the start of the season, few would have expected Ante Rebic to become the protagonist he currently is in Milan's resurgence. The Croatia international joined I Rossoneri on a two-year loan after a successful spell with German side Eintracht Frankfurt, where he played a key role in their historic victory over Bayern Munich in DFB-Pokal final, scoring a brace as Die Adler won 3-1. Rebic was initially unable to replicate that form with Milan, making just seven appearances in the first half of 2019/20, failing to find the back of the net or contribute any assists on each of those occasions. He was looking set to be a dud, anoth...

All the Centre-Backs Linked With Manchester City – Ranked

Manchester City have been linked with a shed load of centre-backs recently | Francesco Pecoraro/Getty ImagesManchester City signing a half-decent centre-back at the beginning of the season may not have halted Liverpool's procession to the Premier League title but it would've made things a hell of a lot closer. Going forward, City's standards have remained ludicrously high but at the back they have been been porous. While Aymeric Laporte's injury was unfortunate, a side of City's financial might should not be toppled by the absence of just one defender. Their Champions League ban being overturned has opened the floodgates to a tidal wave of transfer rumours. Some deals seem feasible, some definitely do not - but which of these long list of potential recruits is best suited to life at th...

Zlatan Ibrahimovic addresses AC Milan future after Radrizzani admission

Date published: Wednesday 22nd July 2020 2:02 Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he is unsure about his AC Milan future less than a day after Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani revealed past interest in the striker. The 38-year-old is still banging in the Serie A goals with eight in 17 games, and scoring a brace as Milan beat 10-man Sassuolo 2-1 in Serie A on Tuesday. Milan have just three games remaining with Ibrahimovic’s contract expiring at the end of the season. The Rossoneri have announced an extension for head coach Stefano Pioli until 2022, but it’s unclear yet what the future will hold for Zlatan. “I still have three games, still 10 days, nobody said anything to me and I don’t expect anything else,” he said, via Sky Sport Italia. “There are t...

Barcelona Consider Shock Stop-Gap Appointment of Laurent Blanc

Paris Saint-Germain v Olympique de Marseille - French Cup Final | Jean Catuffe/Getty ImagesBarcelona are considering a shock move to appoint Laurent Blanc as their new coach for next season, with Quique Setien's future at the club hanging in the balance.

Arsenal to go full throttle with Aubameyang wage hike in new contract

Date published: Wednesday 22nd July 2020 1:34 Arsenal will hand Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang their first offer of a new contract in the coming days as they step up plans to keep him at the club, according to a report. Reports have heavily linked Aubameyang with a move away from the Gunners in recent months, with Barcelona continually credited with interest. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has reiterated his confidence that the striker will renew his deal, which runs out next summer. Indeed, the Spanish boss hopes the recent FA Cup win over Manchester City will serve as further inspiration that his side are heading in the right direction. However, Arteta has also stressed that he wants Arsenal to resolve the situation sooner rather than later. A...
