  2. Kai Havertz’s team-mate claims he ‘dreams’ of Premier League transfer in boost to Chelsea amid Real Madrid links CHELSEA have been given a huge transfer boost after Bayer Leverkusen star Wendell revealed Kai Havertz dreams of playing in the Premier League premier league predictions. German playmaker Havertz is an £80million target for Frank Lampard this summer after starring in the Bundesliga. Chelsea have already signed up international teammate and RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner for under £50m. And they want Havertz to support him in attack with Hakim Ziyech also arriving at Stamford Bridge from Ajax. Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz admits Leverkusen could sell Havertz after missing out on Champions League football next term. But there were worries in the Chelsea camp after Real Madrid entered the running. However, Brazilian left-back Wendell claims team-mate Havertz wants to play in England - and will be a roaring success if he moves to West London. Wendell said: “Psychologically, the Germans are very focused people. “They are very concentrated on what they want. If he goes to the Premier League, he will learn a lot. “I think Kai dreams of playing there. He has that desire, and I think he decides to play in England he will be a success. “He’s a complete player. If you play him as a No9 or No10 a little bit behind, or if you put him out wide, he’ll know what to do football predictions. “He has a facility to understand what the manager wants. He finishes well with both feet. He’s strong with his head, he has good technique.”
  3. Arteta insists Ozil contract will NEVER influence Arsenal selection Mikel Arteta says Mesut Ozil's contract will 'never' validate his selection for Arsenal best soccer tips. The German hasn't featured once in three matches since the Premier League restart. Arteta admitted Ozil was not happy with the situation, but was adamant he wouldn't pick the playmaker solely because he is the club's highest paid player. "Never," said Arteta. "That is an agreement that the player and club were happy to do, to move ahead and it is never [one] that I question. "I think players are paid whatever they deserve because there are two parties here and that should never be something I have to judge. "I want all my players at their best and to have the ability to be able to pick them to help the squad as much as possible and that's the only intention I have football predictions. "I believe that he's not very happy because he's not playing but as well he picked up an injury the other day and we have to wait and see how he evolves."
  4. The five Premier League records Liverpool could still break before end of the season Liverpool could be crowned Premier League champions tonight if Manchester City fail to beat Chelsea soccer tips goals. Liverpool have enjoyed a historic season which will see them eventually crowned champions of England for the first time in three decades, but Jurgen Klopp's side have several opportunities to write their name in the history books as one of the best Premier League teams ever. Liverpool have looked unstoppable this term and it seemed as though they could match Arsenal's infamous 'Invincibles' campaign before a 3-0 defeat to Watford. Still, this season will live long in the memory of every Liverpool fan as they took the league by storm. They have already broken a number of impressive records, including the most home wins in the Premier League on the bounce. They also set the record for most points gained across a 38-match spell in the Premier League (104), surpassing the 102-point mark set by Manchester City and Chelsea previously. There have been suggestions Klopp may deploy more of the youth players once the title is wrapped up, but the Liverpool boss may have his eye on a few more records to truly create history. Biggest winning margin Manchester City hold most records from their impressive 17/18 title triumph and they finished 19 points clear of second place that year. Liverpool currently hold a 23-point lead over their nearest rivals with a game against City still to come. Earliest/ latest title triumph The irony of the football season being suspended until June is the fact Liverpool have the opportunity to win the Premier League earlier and later than anyone else in history. Given the fact the Premier League season usually ends in May, whenever Klopp's side does eventually clinch the title then that will unlikely ever be broken. But potentially more impressive will be if they can become the first team to win the Premier League with six or more rounds of fixtures remaining. City (17/18) and Manchester United (00/01) won with five matches left. Most wins in a season Liverpool's win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday night put them on 28 for the season having dropped just seven points all season. They need just four more wins from their remaining seven games to match City's record of 32 matches won. Most home wins in a season Only three clubs in history have managed 18 Premier League home wins in a season with none going on to win all 19. Liverpool have a chance to become the first with matches against Aston Villa, Burnley and Chelsea remaining. Most points in a season Possibly the biggest target most Liverpool fans will want to see is them breaking the 100-point barrier todays soccer prediction. Only Manchester City have done it before, finishing the 17/18 season on 100 points. Liverpool have the opportunity to smash that with the possibility of reaching 107 points.
  5. Man Utd boss Solskjaer challenges Paul Pogba to show the same leadership as he does with France OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER is urging Paul Pogba to show the same leadership for Manchester United as he does with France soccer under tip. Midfielder Pogba was an inspirational figure when Les Bleus lifted the 2018 World Cup — but has failed to recreate that form in a Red Devils shirt. Ahead of tonight’s trip to Tottenham, boss Solskjaer said: "He is a World Cup winner and we want to have that leadership as well. "He is one of the world’s best so hopefully we can get that as soon as possible." Pogba, 27, is fit again after a lengthy spell out with an ankle injury. And Solskjaer believes fans may finally see the best of a player who has largely flopped since his £89million move from Juventus in 2016. He said: “Of course Paul has had a difficult season with injuries. “But I can see his mentality and focus now he is fit and training. He is ready to prove he has always had quality. “I want the same from Paul as from the others — that we give our best.” But the Frenchman - who had his Rolls-Royce seized by cops for driving with a foreign number plate - may have to bide his time to get back into the first team as United face ex-boss Jose Mourinho. Fred, Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic and Bruno Fernandes all impressed before football’s shutdown. Solskjaer admitted: “It’s given me, not a problem, but a nice challenge to pick the right players. “Nemanja, Scott, Fred have had a fantastic turnaround. Bruno also came in with a great impact jackpot soccer tip. “Paul can only help us because he does have qualities no one else has.”
  6. Transfer news and rumours LIVE: Man Utd eye Ndidi deal 'Sarri's exit angered me' Aurelio De Laurentiis has accused Maurizio Sarri of forcing him into a change of management at Napoli soccer tips goals.

Tonali has been heavily linked with the likes of Juventus and Inter, while Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be among the suitors. Leicester and Palace set to battle for Tarkowski Leicester City and Crystal Palace will battle to sign James Tarkowski, reports the Mirror. Brendan Rodgers has wanted to bring Tarkowski to Leicester since last summer, but was priced out of a move for the Burnley star. Originally, Rodgers saw Tarkowski as an ideal Harry Maguire replacement, and he'll become even more vital if the Foxes secure a Champions League berth this season. Man Utd eye Ndidi as Van de Beek alternative If Manchester United miss out on Donny van de Beek, the Red Devils will turn towards a Premier League midfielder. According to the Express, Leicester City star Wilfred Ndidi will become the club's top target should they miss out on the Ajax star. Should that fail as well, the club is also looking toward Bayern's Corentin Tolisso. Nantes exercise Simon option Nantes have exercised the option to purchase Moses Simon from Levante, the club announced best football tips.

  7. Man Utd chief Ed Woodward ready to spend £269m on new players amid Jadon Sancho interest Jadon Sancho is Manchester United's No 1 target in the upcoming transfer window. Manchester United are prepared to spend nearly £270million in the summer transfer market to sign targets such as Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho free soccer daily tip. Sancho is enjoying a superb season for Dortmund with 17 goals and 16 assists in the Bundesliga to mark him out as one of the most productive attacking players in Europe. United have long been linked with the 20-year-old, who is willing to return to English football and prove himself after leaving Manchester City in 2017. Dortmund are understood to want at least £80million (€100m) to let Sancho leave but hope they can convince him to stay another year. However, according to German football expert Christian Falk, United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has the cash to persuade Dortmund to part with Sancho. "In the case of Jadon Sancho, it would definitely be the next step in his career from a player’s perspective," he told utdreport. "I have heard from my sources that United’s management is ready to invest 300 million euros (£269m) to build a new team. "This is also a sign to players like Sancho that a big team is ready to be built up at United – there is a huge incentive. "United weren’t convincing enough for Timo Werner’s poker. The next player will be moved on more aggressively. "The 300 million euros can also be spent during this summer – if the needed players are on the market, and if they can sell some players." Falk's comments come after former West Ham and Everton midfielder Don Hutchison claimed United would be better served going for another young player who is taking the Bundesliga by storm - Kai Havertz. "[In Sancho] I see a young player that's got so much ability and when you are young you make mistakes on and off the pitch, which we've seen Jadon Sancho make this week," Hutchison told ESPN FC. "I think he's got it. I think right here, right now if you're asking me the question 'Who would you rather have?' or 'Which player would you see going for over £100m?' between Jadon Sancho and Kai Havertz, in my opinion I would be leaning towards Kai Havertz. "I think he looks as though, at the moment, he looks a better prospect, he looks a better player because he looks as though he's thinking about the game more. "But at the same time Jadon Sancho's got this electric pace about him, these super-quick feet soccer daily tips. "If you get a manager who plays him and gives him loads of confidence and pits him with better players, the future I think could be incredible for him. "But I think at the moment, I think Havertz is slightly ahead."
  8. Transfer news and rumours LIVE: Chelsea go all-in for Havertz Dybala admits it would be 'very nice' to play for Barcelona soccer tips for tomorrow Paulo Dybala admitted it would be "very nice" to play for Barcelona as the star attacker said he was still waiting for a contract renewal at Juventus.

  9. Premier League plan uncovered with 300 people at games ahead of crucial meeting vote Premier League clubs will once again meet on Thursday ahead of the season restarting later this month as final details are voted on premier league predictions. The Premier League have decided it takes 300 people just to stage a modern top-flight football match. Leonidas famously held up the entire Greek army at Thermopylae with exactly the same number. Compared to what we are used to, though, the Premier League is about to have a very spartan feel. The Matchday Operations Plan to be voted on today will put strict limits on those allowed in when the Premier League gets underway with Sheffield United's trip to Aston Villa in 13 days' time. Tunnel bust ups. Managers knocking angrily on the referee's door. Stars being mobbed in the media mixed zone. None of that will be remotely possible. Before and after play, players will be separated – emerging from the dressing rooms separately so even the very best-aimed slice of pizza is unlikely to cause a fight. The five officials – a spare is allowed in stands to observe the other four and step in should injury strike – will get changed in a separate part of the stadium, well away from irate bosses wanting a “quiet word”. And the 25 newspaper reporters allowed into the ground will be told to remain at their desks from the moment they arrive an hour before kick-off. The post-match press conference will be conducted “virtually”, from seats in the stands via zoom. Henceforth the area they occupy in the bowl of the stadium will be known as the “amber zone” - one step beyond the car parks and entrance areas which comprise the “green zone”. It will be shared with 10 directors and executives and just six football scouts maximum – one from each of the opponents in the participants' next three games. In all, just 105 golden tickets will be handed out for what has been dubbed the “red zone” - the pitch and the tunnel and dressing room areas. Mascots are banned, regardless of whether they are young children or grown-ups dressed as garish latex animals. Playing squads will be limited to 20. That comprises the usual 18-man match-day squad plus two on standby, although Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck will table a motion today to add the extra to an increased bench of nine from which five substitutes can be chosen. Premier League restart: Liverpool just need six points to seal the title (Image: GETTY) Support staff are restricted to just 12 in number – from kit man to coach, masseur to doctor. Four doping officers will lurk as ever, somewhere in the background, to conduct the usual random tests. Just beyond the ropes, it is the broadcast media who swell the numbers way beyond the 215 allowed into Bundesliga games. Sky, BT, Amazon or the BBC, whoever is the host broadcaster are entitled to 98 accreditation passes alone, such is the complexity of modern television. Just 15 international commentators will join them, the rest of the globe relying on commentary on the pictures beamed to their own countries. 15 radio commentators will be alongside them – two safe metres apart – trying to conjure images of their own. Together with the pages of reports in the newspapers, the government hopes the media coverage will help convince the country things are returning to normal soccer today. For those privileged 300, though, it will certainly be a very different normal.
  10. Transfer news and rumours LIVE: Man City target Bailey as Sane replacement 'Tottenham could still sign Coutinho' Tottenham could still sign Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona despite the transfer uncertainty of the coronavirus crisis, according to former Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson. Barca could recall Coutinho immediately soccer under tip Barcelona could recall Philippe Coutinho from his loan spell at Bayern Munich, according to Onda Cero. It is claimed the Catalan giants could even bring him back into their first-team squad, if UEFA allows them to do so ahead of La Liga's proposed resumption. Bayern Munich have indicated they won't be exercising their option to purchase Coutinho. Juventus pushing for Arthur move Juventus are trying desperately to convince Arthur to leave Barcelona, claim Mundo Deportivo. The Brazilian is said to be content at Barca but Juve see him as a perfect replacement for Miralem Pjanic - who seems set to move to Camp Nou. Now, Juventus have supposedly enlisted the services of a top agent in order to convince him to join. Milik pushing for Juventus move Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik is hoping to lower the club's €40 million (£36m/$44m) valuation amid interest from Juventus, report CalcioMercato. The Polish international would be available for free next summer, and Juve aren't willing to part with €40m in that context despite Maurizio Sarri being a huge admirer. Atletico Madrid have also been linked with a move. Milan shelve Luis pursuit until end of season AC Milan are putting their pursuit of Benfica midfielder Florentino Luis on the back burner until the end of the Serie A season, according to A Bola. The two clubs have been in conversation over the 20-year-old for some time but are now keen to refocus on matters on the pitch. It is claimed the basis of a loan-to-buy deal has already been agreed. Man City target Bailey as Sane replacement Manchester City have identified Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey as a replacement for Leroy Sane, report the Daily Mail. Sane has long been targeted by Bayern Munich, and the Bundesliga leaders are hoping to conclude a deal this summer. Bailey has scored 12 Bundesliga goals since the beginning of last season. Five Barca players wanted at Real Betis Real Betis are hoping to complete loan or permanent deals for as many as five Barcelona players, according to Sport. Ansu Fati, Carles Alena, Riqui Puig, Junior Firpo and Francisco Trincao are all claimed to be targets. Betis have developed a good relationship with Barca in recent years and are apparently hoping that will stand them in good stead in negotiations. Moyes concerned over West Ham sales David Moyes isn't looking forward to the task of clearing the deadwood from his West Ham squad this summer, say the Daily Star. The Scotsman is said to favour working with a smaller squad, but he is unsure whether he will be able to find buyers for unwanted players in the current market. Moyes wants to create a core of young British players at the club and is likely to look to the Championship for possible bargains. Barca to let Dembele leave on loan Barcelona are willing to listen to loan offers for winger Ousmane Dembele, claims the Daily Mail. The Catalan giants are said to be desperate to get him off their wage bill, and hope that a successful loan spell elsewhere could salvage some of his plummeting transfer value. Dembele could move in a similar big-money loan deal to that which took Philippe Coutinho to Bayern Munich. Rennes make offer for €15m Bouanga soccer handicap tip Rennes have made an opening offer for Saint-Etienne forward Denis Bouanga, according to Foot Mercato. It has been reported Saint-Etienne will be looking for a fee of €15 million (£13m/$16m) for the 25-year-old's services. Gabon international Bouanga has 12 goals and five goals to his name this season.
  11. Man Utd's first attempt at Jack Grealish transfer emerges amid ongoing pursuit Manchester United are hoping to sign Aston Villa star Jack Grealish when the transfer window reopens this summer. Manchester United first attempted to sign Jack Grealish as a teenager, according to reports. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to add the England international to his squad when the transfer window reopens at the end of the campaign. He could replace Paul Pogba, who remains linked with a move away from Old Trafford best soccer tips. Manchester United have earmarked Grealish as a transfer target ahead of the summer window, with Solskjaer prioritising him over Leicester’s James Maddison. And the Daily Mirror say the Red Devils first attempted to sign the 24-year-old when he was a teenager. Now, all these years on, United are hoping to land their man. It’s previously been reported that any deal for the Villa star is dependant on what happens with Pogba, with the France international’s future up in the air. Real Madrid want to snap him up, with Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane driving his side’s pursuit of his compatriot. And Juventus are keen to bring Pogba back to Italy, four years after he sensationally returned to Old Trafford. United could raise funds for Grealish by letting Pogba depart - despite Solskjaer regularly hailing the Frenchman for his attitude. They’re undeterred by the Villa star’s recent controversy where he breached lockdown rules in order to attend a party. He’s expected to cost in the region of £60million. But that price could drop if Villa succumb to relegation soccer today. Grealish has been in impressive form this season scoring seven Premier League goals and managing six assists in total.
