WATCH: Dwight Yorke scores stunning volley to make it 2-0 to Manchester United legends

Dwight Yorke rolled back the years with a sensational volley for Manchester United legends against Bayern Munich legends at Old Trafford.

The video above shows Yorke making no mistake with his left foot after build up play from the Red Devils involving Jesper Blomqvist. The ball in from the left was converted after Yorke found himself in acres of space in the area and he made no mistake.

Manchester United had earlier taken the lead after a simple tap-in finish by none other than their current first-team manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Second half action in the match is currently on its way live.

Reports: Manchester United withdraw interest in teenage sensation as Barcelona move beckons

Manchester United have ended their long time interest in a young teenage sensation after believing he is headed to Barcelona in the summer.

That player happens to be none other than Matthijs de Ligt from Ajax Amsterdam, with the 19-year-old now set to move to Barcelona instead.

Sky Sports News is reporting that de Ligt is all set for a switch to the La Liga Champions after making it clear he wants to play for them instead of the Red Devils next season.

Ajax players celebrate title win with fans

De Ligt enjoyed a sensational campaign with Ajax both domestically as well as in the UEFA Champions League (UCL), where the Dutch giants were narrowly beaten by Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-finals.

The defender captained the team and even scored in the second leg of the tie against Spurs in an unsuccessful evening overall.

However, his exploits this season have earned him offers from several European giants, with his heart seemingly set on Barcelona.

Club President Josep Maria Bartomeu confirmed that they are working on arrivals and exits in the transfer window following the successful capture of Frenkie De Jong from Ajax.

“Every year new players come in. So far we have confirmed De Jong’s signing and now we will work on bringing in others and moving players on, as is normal every summer,” Bartomeu had remarked.

“Now is not the moment to do anything. There are always new signings, but now is not the moment to talk about it.”

 

WATCH: Jose Mourinho discusses his future plans and the UCL final while witnessing F1 in Monaco

Jose Mourinho was in Monaco enjoying the F1 action in all its glory as Lewis Hamilton raced to pole position on an exciting day of Qualifying. 

The Portuguese was in attendance as the action unfolded, and FOX Sports caught up with him later to discuss his thoughts on the upcoming UEFA Champions League (UCL) final between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Jose Mourinho on Champions League final and his future

“Finals are very unpredictable,” Mourinho said while discussing the much anticipated clash in Madrid.

“I’m pretty sure that both managers are putting everything on the mental side of the competition and when it gets to these big moments, that’s a crucial aspect”.

When asked about when he would be back in football, Mourinho gave a typical answer.

“I would love to be there, but only if it is the project that I want.”

Rest assured, fans would love to see the former Manchester United, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss back in action soon.

Reports: Juventus ready to swap two superstars to get Paul Pogba from Manchester United

Paul Pogba

Juventus are willing to lay it all on the line as they launch one major effort to re-sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United in the summer. 

Pogba had joined United from Juventus a few years ago in a huge £94.5m deal, and though Real Madrid are still front runners to sign the Frenchman, the Bianconeri want to have a say in it as well.

The Express is reporting that to land Pogba, Juve are planning to go all out, and have agreed to swap two of their biggest stars in the form of Paulo Dybala and Alex Sandro to get him back to Turin.

The report suggests that United were keen on signing both Sandro and Dybala not too long ago, and could use this interest in Pogba as a means to get their hands on the talented duo and bring them to the Premier League.

Dybala has somewhat lost his numero uno position at Juventus since the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo at the club, and could look for a new challenge in his career by taking the United route, though he has also been linked with a move to Liverpool.

As for Pogba, Zinedine Zidane wants to bring him to Real Madrid, but a move back to the Old Lady could be a lucrative one as well.

India vs New Zealand warm up match: India lose three quick wickets as Trent Boult strikes

India are struggling against the pace and accuracy of Trent Boult in their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 warm up match against New Zealand. 

Boult dismissed Rohit Sharma LBW, before getting Shikhar Dhawan to nick one to the wicket-keeper. Soon after, he got KL Rahul to play onto his stumps, reducing the Indians to just 24/3.

It was a classy spell of fast bowling from Trent Boult, who has shown in the past as well what he is capable of, and it only goes to show that perhaps India aren’t quite the heavyweights we were expecting them to be just yet.

Plenty of time still to go in this game however, and perhaps a few twists and turns still to come in this high-profile warm up ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup tournament.

India vs New Zealand warm up match: India wins toss, Virat Kohli chooses to bat first

Virat Kohli

India are ready to take on New Zealand in their first warm up match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, and the toss is done and dusted. 

The two captains Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson were out in the middle, and after the toss of the coin, it was India who came out victors.

Indian skipper Kohli did not hesitate in making his decision to bat first in the conditions at the Oval, but will have to be content without the services of Kedar Jadhav and Vijay Shankar following injuries to the duo.

Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson seemed content enough to be batting second, but there is no doubt that this contest will be a hard fought one, with only one team coming out on top.

Reports: Lionel Messi picks Manchester City star instead of Antoine Griezmann as next Barcelona signing

Lionel Messi has reportedly picked a high-profile Manchester City star as Barcelona’s next signing ahead of Antoine Griezmann, as the summer window closes in.

Sportskeeda are among the sources claiming that Leroy Sane would be a better fit at Barca than Griezmann, according to Messi, and it could be a pretty big move.

Griezmann announced recently that he would not be continuing his stay at Atletico Madrid, sparking speculation that Barcelona would be the preferred destination, but Sane himself could be on the move, leading to no dearth in options for the La Liga Champions.

Guardiola unsure about Sane’s and Gundogan’s future at Man City

Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for the German, who impressed under Pep Guardiola last season, but fell out of favour somewhat towards the end of this campaign.

Nonetheless, his quality remains high, and he is definitely one of the top players in the transfer market as well, even though the form of Bernardo Silva at City continues to keep him out of a regular first team spot.

With Frenkie De Jong already making his way to the Nou Camp, Messi could have his attacking options all sured up if Barca decide to bring Sane in as well and supplement him in attack.

Reports: Neymar leaves for Brazil without informing manager as PSG exit looms large

Neymar Jr. is proving to be a bit of a hot potato at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) recently, amid rumours that a move to Real Madrid could be in the offing.

Sources such as AS and Le Parisien are reporting that the Brazilian did not even care to inform his club manager Thomas Tuchel before jetting off to his native Brazil, where report seem to suggest he is now.

‘I want Neymar and Mbappe to stay’ – Tuchel

Tuchel has hinted that he had absolutely no say in the matter, and that it was not his decision to let Neymar leave before the club campaign formally draws to a close.

“Neymar hasn’t been released by me, it’s not a sporting decision, it’s not up to me to make the decision to release him or not,” Tuchel told reporters.

Brazil are preparing for their own bit of football action during the club off season as they prepare for the Copa America tournament which begins on June 14 in their own country.

Neymar has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer, and these rumours appear to be given more weight by such actions undertaken by the former Barcelona superstar.

Discipline may be an ongoing issue, but there is no doubting the class he possesses.

Reports: Italian World Cup winner set for possible role with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City

Pep Guardiola Mikel Arteta

One of Italy’s World Cup winning stars from 2006 just might be ready to take on a coaching stint with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, it appears. 

Calcio Mercato are reporting that Daniele De Rossi would be ‘gladly’ wanted at Manchester City by Pep Guardiola if he decides that coaching is what is wants to do after finishing up his playing career.

The report suggests that De Rossi would have plenty of options available to him following his announcement that he is ending his 18 year stint at AS Roma this season.

Roma squad pays tribute to Daniele De Rossi

If he decides to continue playing, there are reportedly offers from Boca Juniors as well as Major League Soccer (MLS) clubs in US, but Manchester City is by far the most lucrative when it comes to coaching.

City had offered De Rossi a huge deal back in 2012, but he decided to stay at Roma and be loyal to his boyhood club, but could take on the coaching job now with a very different feel in place.

De Rossi’s love for the band ‘Oasis’ however, may just prove to be a deciding factor as well.

“They’re the band from my teenage years. I grew up listening to them and I know all their songs off by heart,” he had said.

“I liked those guys, they were real characters. They weren’t always conventional or very easily approachable but I really liked the stereotype they represented – rock stars off their heads.”

Reports: Serie A giants favourites to land World Cup semifinalist in £25m deal

Napoli could be closing in on a deal for England and Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier, The Independent are reporting.

The Serie A club are in prime position to sign the right back in a deal estimated to be around £25m, especially since he impressed at both club and International level in recent seasons.

Liverpool vs Tottenham – Champions League Final Preview

Trippier was an integral part of the England squad at the FIFA World Cup in Russia last year, and even scored from a free-kick as the Three Lions fell to Croatia in the semi-finals.

The 28-year-old has kept his place in the Spurs side as well, despite strong pressure from Serge Aurier at right back, and was rumoured to have been linked with Manchester United as well last season.

Napoli are keen to invest well in their defensive half, especially since their leading centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly continues to be linked with a big money move to Manchester United despite the club trying their best to stave off interest.

Trippier had signed a new deal at Spurs back in 2017, so he still technically has around three years left on his contract, hence Tottenham will be keen to get as much money as they can from the move.

Reports: Kylian Mbappe falls out with PSG teammate following Neymar criticism

Paris Saint-Germain forwards Kylian Mbappe and Neymar

All is not well in the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) camp at the moment. The Parisians were beaten in the French Cup final by Rennes, and it hasn’t gone down well at all. 

In fact, superstar forward Neymar has taken a dig at the ‘young players’ in the squad following the defeat, and one Kylian Mbappe is none too pleased with it.

Sport are reporting that Mbappe is upset with Neymar since he was sent off during the game and feels the dig was aimed at him as he is also one of the young players in the side.

‘He knows what he’s doing’ – Tuchel to Mbappe speech hinting at PSG exit

One team that is keeping a very close eye on this situation is Real Madrid, who are interested in both Mbappe and Neymar, but are yet to make any significant inroads in signing any of the star players.

Neymar left from Barcelona to join PSG, while Mbappe has expressed an interest in leaving PSG recently, sparking rumours of an arrival at Los Blancos.

‘This is a very important moment for me, I am arriving at maybe the first or second turning point in my career,’ the 20-year-old said.

‘I have learned so much here, and I feel it’s maybe the time to have more responsibility.’

‘Maybe at PSG, that would give me great pleasure, or maybe elsewhere for a new project.’

Reports: Cristiano Ronaldo to be issued summons in rape case after major development takes place

Cristiano Ronaldo appears to have suffered a major blow in the ongoing rape charges issued against him by Kathryn Mayorga, with her lawyers now making an important discovery.

According to the Daily Mirror, Kathryn Mayorga’s lawyers have now been able to track down the full address of Cristiano Ronaldo’s house in Italy, and have enlisted Italy’s Central Authority to deliver summons and complaint.

Ronaldo back for Portugal in Nations League semi-final as Santos announces squad

The document is expected to be sent in the next couple of weeks, the report suggests, once translation has been completed.

Ronaldo’s lawyers had earlier refused to share any details of his residence, and hence no summons was able to be issued, but that has now all changed with this major development in the story.

“Records go blank when he searches anything for Ronaldo. Property records have been blacked out,” the documents alleged.

A US judge had earlier allowed an extended period of 180 days to Mayorga’s team of lawyers to find the address of Ronaldo after they had initially failed to find the superstar’s home.

The alleged rape incident took place ten years ago at a hotel in Las Vegas in US, but did not come to light till much later on since Mayorga felt intimidated and initially accepted money to keep quiet.
