ESPN FC's Craig Burley has his say as to who should become Real Madrid's next Galactico signings. Are Real Madrid preparing to swap managers? Gab Marcotti and Sid Lowe weigh in on the reports linking Antonio Conte to the Bernabeu. Another embarrassment for Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui as his team went 2-0 down and made the second longest run without a goal (481 minutes) in their entire 116 year existence before Marcelo's late consolation. Madrid could claim some bad luck: two VAR decisions went against them, they hit the woodwork three times and had a late possible equaliser ruled out for offside. But this was a shambles of a performance, and president Florentino Perez could pull the trigger on Lopetegui even before...

Luke Shaw signs contract extension with Manchester United

MANCHESTER, England — Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has signed a contract extension that ties him to the English club until 2023 after getting back in favour with coach Jose Mourinho.

United says Shaw has the option of extending his deal by a further 12 months.

The left back, who became the world’s most expensive teenage player when he joined United for $46 million in 2014, has struggled with injury problems over the last two seasons and also has been publicly rebuked for his performances by Mourinho.

However, Shaw has been one of the few players to impress at United in its underwhelming start to this season and he recently got a call-up by England for the first time in 18 months.

Shaw says "I’m still very young with a lot more to learn and I can’t wait to continue my progress under Jose Mourinho."

Manchester United make David De Gea new contract main priority with Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw set to sign deals

Manchester United make David De Gea new contract main priority with Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw set to sign deals

MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly made David De Gea’s new contract a priority.

The Standard claims Old Trafford chiefs are working frantically to tie the Spaniard down to a new deal with his current one expiring at the end of the season.

United do have an automatic one-year extension clause they can take up.

But that still wouldn’t solve the dilemma of where De Gea’s long-term future lies.

And the club believes offering the goalkeeper a lucrative, long-term contract will keep him at the Theatre of Dreams for more years to come.

However, the report adds that De Gea is now focusing on adding to his trophy cabinet, having won just one Premier League title in five years.

The Red Devils have got off to a terrible start this season and they may need to prove they are capable of challenging for major trophies in the near future before De Gea commits.

Meanwhile, Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw are both close to extending their contracts.

Draxler warns Germany: Mbappe has 300 hp!
Kylian Mbappe boasts "300 hp" and is almost impossible to stop if he is given space to run, Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Julian Draxler says. Germany head to Paris on Tuesday to take on world champions France in the Nations League, hoping to bounce back from last weekend's 3-0 defeat to Netherlands in Amsterdam. Mbappe helped France rescue a 2-2 draw with Iceland in a friendly match last time out, taking his tally to nine international goals in 2018 in the process. And Draxler admits Germany will need to be at their collective best to stop the explosive 19-year-old from running riot against their defence. "If he has space to get started, it's almost impossible to catch him with his 300 hp," Draxler told T-online. "His speed and his finishing [are his biggest weapons]. We must not allow him to use either, by defending very compact." 10 - Kylian Mbappé is the first player ever to reach the 10 goals scored for France before turning 20. NoWords. pic.twitter.com/vfy7IzZHNp — OptaJean  (@OptaJean) October 11, 2018 Mbappe has enjoyed a strong start to the domestic season, too, with eight goals in just four starts in Ligue 1. PSG are firmly on track to defend their domestic trophies and have lost only one match in all competitions under head coach Thomas Tuchel – a 3-2 Champions League reverse to Liverpool. Draxler says Tuchel's response to the team after that defeat at Anfield highlighted the demands he places on the players, but insists the former Borussia Dortmund boss has created a positive vibe in the dressing room. "He spreads a good atmosphere, inside and outside. He lets us play attractive football, he has clear ideas and he gives these to us very clearly," Draxler added. "After losing to Liverpool, he told us very clearly what had gone wrong. Not everything is 'peace, joy and pancakes' on the way to success. But that's also why he does very well and has the team on his side."

Why is Croatia vs England being played behind closed doors tonight and are away fans allowed at the Uefa Nations League match?

Football news - transfers, fixtures, scores, pictures | The Sun
Why is Croatia vs England being played behind closed doors tonight and are away fans allowed at the Uefa Nations League match?

ENGLAND travel to Croatia as they continue their Uefa Nations League campaign following a 2-1 loss at home to Spain.

The Three Lions will be looking for revenge for their World Cup semi-final defeat in June, but will be in for a change of surroundings as they play behind closed doors.

England will play behind closed doors against Croatia after a swastika was mowed into the pitch in one of the hosts’ previous internationalsReuters Why is Croatia vs England being played behind closed doors?

Croatia vs England will be played behind closed doors after being hit with a two-game stadium ban for an incident that occurred in 2015.

Before a European Championship qualifier against Italy, which was also being played behind closed doors, a Croatian fan mowed a swastika into the pitch which was seen by viewers around the world.

The first game of the ban was observed against Croatia in 2015, but in 2016 and 2017 only World Cup qualifiers were played in the country.

As those games came under the Fifa banner, the England game is Croatia’s first home Uefa international for three years, and the ban has carried over.

When is Croatia vs England?

Croatia vs England will take place on Friday, September 12.

The match will kick off at 7.45pm UK time.

It will take place at the Stadion Rujevica, Rijeka.

Are England fans allowed at the game in Croatia?

Under Uefa rules, the visiting team is allowed an allocation of 200 tickets for matches played behind closed doors.

But the FA stated that after discussions with police, they were choosing not to take up any allocation of tickets due to safety reasons.

Therefore England fans will not be admitted into the stadium in Rijeka.

Whitecaps’ playoff dreams fading following loss to FC Dallas

Whitecaps’ playoff dreams fading following loss to FC Dallas
Whitecaps’ playoff dreams fading following loss to FC Dallas

VANCOUVER — The head coach of the Vancouver Whitecaps says there’s a sense of deja vu about his squad’s 2-1 loss to FC Dallas on Sunday.

Carl Robinson said the ‘Caps (11-11-7) battled hard to notch an equalizer after conceding a goal in the first half, then gave away the draw in the match’s dying minutes.

"It’s (the) same again," Robinson said after Sunday’s match.

"If we’re being honest, we haven’t quite been good enough in the last two games."

Sunday’s loss — the second in a row following last week’s defeat to the Seattle Sounders — further dims Vancouver’s playoff dreams, sending the team down to eighth place in the MLS Western Conference.

Dallas (15-6-8) vaulted to first place with the victory.

The Toros opened the scoring in the 42nd minute, when midfielder Santiago Mosquera leapt from a crowd in front of the ‘Caps goal and headed the ball in.

The Whitecaps replied in the 66th minute, with teenage star Alphonso Davies getting a strong cross to the centre of the box, where striker Kei Kamara headed the ball in.

Kamara leads the Whitecaps in scoring with 13 goals and Davies is the team leader on helpers with 11 for the season.

The pair have been working in training on setting up plays where Davies beats his defender, then gets a cross to Kamara’s head.

The striker said he preys on balls in the air and can get frustrated when he doesn’t get them.

"Every time the ball is in the air, I want to make sure I’m dominant," Kamara said. "We’re at a crucial time of the year where everything counts, every cross, every pass, today, every mistake that you make."

Dallas defender Matt Hedges dashed the possibility of a draw in the 87th minute on Sunday, heading the ball in the top left corner of Vancouver’s net.

"It was a play that we work on sometimes when the other guy tries to flick it to the back post," Hedges said of the move. "It was kind of a flick play."

Giving up late goals has been a problem for Vancouver throughout the season.

Losing a match in the dying minutes is especially disappointing when it happens at home, Kamara said.

"Today, we just gave it away. And that hurts really bad," he said.

There have been 11 times this year where the squad has given up a goal in the last 10 minutes of a league game.

There have also been six times where the ‘Caps scored in the 10 minutes.

The difference on Sunday was that the Whitecaps didn’t focus on details.

"It cost us the game. It’s hurtful. We’re very disappointed," said Kendall Waston. "We lost three points that could have helped us to be closer to a playoff spot."

But the season isn’t over yet and playing beyond the end of October is still a realistic possibility, Waston added.

"In football, you never know what’s going to happen," he said. "And if we still have the chances, we’re going to continue to try to get there."

The Whitecaps have five games left this season and are now focused on how many points they can steal from other teams, Kamara said.

Next week, they’ll take on superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the L.A. Galaxy in California.

The Galaxy moved ahead of the ‘Caps into seventh place on the table Sunday, beating the Seattle Sounders 3-0.

Kamara said he and his teammates need to believe they can win when they’re in California.

"It’s realistic to go into L.A. to get points or to go anywhere in this league," Kamara said. "Everyone says this is the only league where you don’t know who’s going to win the game until the game is done."

Losing on Sunday was a "kick in the butt," the veteran forward added, and it should be motivation to push harder than ever in the final stretch to playoffs.

"It’s still the same mentality, it’s still the same fight," Kamara said. "It’s crunch time."

NOTES: Whitecaps defender Brett Levis was subbed out at the half due to a left quad strain. … Vancouver’s Russell Teibert and Cristian Techera were each shown the yellow card for unsporting behaviour. Dallas’ Marquinhos Pedroso and Michael Barrios received the same caution from the referee.

Girona OKs planned La Liga game vs. Barcelona in U.S.

MADRID — Girona is willing to play a regular-season game against Barcelona in the United States as part of La Liga’s goal of promoting soccer and the league in North America, the small club said Thursday.

Girona said in a statement it is working with the league and Barcelona to finalize details of the proposed game, which has attracted criticism from Spain’s players’ association and some clubs and fans.

The league last month announced its plan to play in the U.S. as part of a new 15-year partnership with sports and entertainment group Relevent, which operates the International Champions Cup, a tournament played during the European off-season in July and August across the globe.

La Liga had not said which teams would be involved, nor when or where the game would be played, although Miami appears to be the first option.

Girona said it accepted the proposal because it sees a "great opportunity for expansion" for the club and the city, which has a population of about 100,000 people and is located a little over an hour by car from Barcelona in northeastern Spain.

"A little over three years ago the club was fighting for its survival and now our goal is to consolidate ourselves in the first division," it said. "This action would be another step toward showing our will to remain competing in soccer’s elite."

Girona said one of the issues being discussed was how to compensate the club’s fans as it would be relinquishing a home game in the league. The club said it would try to offer several options for its members so they would not feel at a disadvantage.

Spanish media said one of the plans was to charter planes so Girona fans could make the trip to the U.S. and watch the game.

This is Girona’s second season in Spain’s first division.

Captains of the first-division clubs were against the league’s "unilateral decision" to take league matches outside of Spain, saying they should have been consulted in advance.

The clubs and La Liga are expected to seek approval from Spain’s soccer federation in the next few days.

West Brom news: Ex-Norwich stars Wes Hoolahan and Russell Martin training with Baggies with view to short-term deals

WEST BROM are casting their eyes over ex-Norwich pair Wes Hoolahan and Russell Martin.

Darren Moore is looking at them in training this week with a view to short-term deals at the Hawthorns.

Wes Hoolahan made an emotional farewell to Norwich at the end of last season - but he could be facing them soonWes Hoolahan made an emotional farewell to Norwich at the end of last season – but he could be facing them soonGetty Images - Getty

Hoolahan, 36, left Norwich in the summer after 10 seasons at Carrow Road and is looking for a club.

Moore is interested in an attacking midfielder after failing to land Blackburn’s Bradley Dack before the transfer deadline, with Hoolahan available outside the window.

Scotland defender Martin, 32, is also in the frame for a deal after ending his long association with the Canaries.

SunSport exclusively revealed the Baggies had an initial £7million bid rejected for Dack, but still fancied their chances of getting him before the 5pm loan deadline last Friday.

So under the terms of the deal West Brom proposed, they would have signed Dack, 24, on an initial loan basis before making the deal permanent when the winter window opens in January.

Moore has been after the schemer all summer, and his good form over pre-season and since the campaign started convinced the Baggies boss he is the right man to bring in.

Moore and his scouts made a giant offer of £11 million up front and the rest in extras for the former Gillingham star.

Rovers owners Venkys rejected the offer as they have ambitions to chase promotion this season too.
