Manchester United are set to make striker Radamel Falcao's loan deal from Monaco permanent within the coming days after becoming satisfied that the 28-year-old Colombia star is "fully up to scratch physically". Ashley Young, 29, who can play in midfield or as a wing-back, will be out for at least a month because of a hamstring injury. Liverpool are leading the chase to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri, 23, after making a permanent offer, while their rivals for the Switzerland star's signature, Inter Milan and Juventus, have only offered loan deals. Manchester United have earmarked Juventus' former United midfielder Paul Pogba, 21, as their main transfer target after being snubbed by Real Madrid's forward pair Cristiano Ronaldo, 29, and Gareth Bale, 25. Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski will travel to Milan on Friday ahead of a possible loan move to Inter, according to Sky sources. Kevin Strootman is keen to leave Roma in January - but the Manchester United target wants a switch to Real Madrid. A ...
SPORTS UPDATE: Uganda’s record league champions SC Villa has earned a late invitation to replace one of Kenya’s earlier invited teams at the 2015 Mapinduzi Peace Cup. Crystal Palace caretaker manager Keith Millen believes Alan Pardew's "terrific track record" makes him a good fit to become the club's permanent boss. Gareth Bale will "never leave" Real Madrid, according to the La Liga club's president Florentino Perez. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants an independent panel created with the power to issue retrospective suspensions for diving.
BALE TO LEAVE MADRID? Talk of Gareth Bale leaving the Santiago Bernabeu is picking up speed as Spanish paper SPORT report that Real Madrid have already lined up the Welshman's replacement. Apparently Real would be happy to cash in on Bale if they can secure a deal for Marco Reus, who's thought to have a release clause of around £20m in his Borussia Dortmund contract. Real would still demand north of £100m for Bale, however, which leaves Manchester United with a big decision to make following reports that Louis Van Gaal has personally requested the winger. ARSENAL AND LIVERPOOL WANT MILNER According to the Daily Express, Arsenal and Liverpool are both desperate to sign James Milner when his Manchester City contract expires in the summer. Manuel Pellegrini recently said he expects Milner to stay at City, but talks over extending the utility man's deal have stalled. The 28-year-old has previously expressed his desire for regular first-team football, with Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers both hoping to con ...

RMCS: Oh, I am very sorry Mr. Wenger, but we have a 30-day return policy, so I'm afraid if you purchased this player last summer it is no longer applicable. Wenger: Well, the player is defective. He has no stamina, he doesn't applaud the fans after away matches — he's the only German to miss two penalties in the Champions League! Surely he must still be under warranty.

Arsene Wenger hopes to finally be able to do a deal with Real Madrid for striker Alvaro Morata, however it's set to come at a cost for the Gunners. Real want a buy-back clause inserted into any agreement they make over the sale of the striker which would mean they could sign Morata for a fixed fee in two years' time. Wenger has long been an admirer of the Spain Under-21 striker and was in talks to bring him to Arsenal in the January transfer window, but a deal could not be reached. Further talks have been held between the two clubs and a deal in the region of £8million could be finialised ready to go in the summer, report the Daily Mirror. Morata has found his playing time limited at the Bernabeu this season, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema ahead of him in the pecking order. The 21-year-old has scored four league goals this season but had to put up with a substitutes role, coming on 15 times in La Liga but he's started just one game. Wenger will be looking to bolster his forward li ...

Arsenal must pay £25m to sign Alvaro Morata this summer. Arsenal have been told they must pay £25 million to sign Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata this summer, according to reports in Spain. 21-year-old Morata, who joined Los Blancos from local rivals Getafe in 2008, is one of European football's brightest young talents but is evidently struggling to find a consistent role in the club's extremely impressive attacking set-up. With the divisive figure of Karim Benzema appearing to thrive alongside the considerable threats of Cristiano Ronaldo and summer signing Gareth Bale, Morata - who boasts an extraordinarily good goalscoring record for Spain's U21 team - has been limited to just 13 appearances in La Liga so far this season. Such a lack of regular action has seen Morata linked with a move away from Real Madrid, with reports earlier this week suggesting that Arsenal were looking to resurrect a January move for the player and that they had already sounded out his representatives. Just whether Arsenal wi ...

Arsene Wenger, commonly thought to be fading fast, the last supreme ruler in English football has seen off another Tottenham Hotspur manager while guiding Arsenal to the top of a Premier League convulsed by uproar and sackings. AVB’s demise came 15 fixtures after Arsenal had lost at home to Aston Villa on the season’s opening day and pundits had lined up to say how well Spurs had spent the Gareth Bale money. Approaching the halfway point in this Premier League title race, though, the big stories are Liverpool’s rise under Brendan Rodgers, the stylish football played by Everton, regime change difficulties at Manchester United and vindication for Wenger, who has come to look like the last guardian of managerial honour. Consider the chaos around him. Villas-Boas, the young technocrat, is no more at Spurs. Steve Clarke has been sacked by West Brom. Malky Mackay, who has transformed Cardiff City, is messed about by a capricious foreign owner. The man who owns Hull City is obsessed with adding ‘Tigers ...
The Spanish champions barely mustered a shot on target against the Basques and it was only the second time in 15 matches this season they have dropped points after the 0-0 draw at Osasuna in October. Gerardo Martino's side are level with Atletico on 40 points following the Madrid club's 2-0 win at promoted Elche. Real Madrid, whose 4-0 drubbing of Real Valladolid at the Bernabeu included a hat-trick from record signing Gareth Bale, are three behind in third, with Bilbao fourth on 29 points thanks to their first La Liga win against Barca since May 2006. ENGLAND Arsenal maintained their four-point lead at the top of the Premier League with victory at Cardiff City, but the top three now has a more familiar feel after Chelsea and Manchester City both won to stay in pursuit. Aaron Ramsey scored twice for the league leaders on his return to his former club in a 3-0 win for Arsene Wenger's Arsenal, who moved to 31 points from 13 matches. Chelsea climbed to second with a 3-1 win over Southampton thanks to goals f ...
Madrid's midfield is currently being dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, with Angel Di Maria a popular substitute choice. Isco has been an unused subs in Real's last two matches; the 3-2 La Liga win over Rayo Vallecano and, more recently and ominously, the crucial Champions League victory over Juventus. The 21-year-old Spain midfielder came to prominence at Malaga over two seasons when he was coached by Manuel Pellegrini who is now manager at Manchester City and Arsene Wenger is a long-term admirer and proved with the capture of Mesut Ozil that he is happy to splash the cash on the right talent. Real paid around £25m for Isco's services in August but that was before the club smashed the world record transfer fee of £86m paid to Tottenham for Gareth Bale who has forced the Spanish playmaker down the pecking order.

Real Madrid are looking for a striker to sign in the January transfer window. Karim Benzema, who never enjoyed the faith of either Jose Mourinho or Carlo Ancelotti, seems to be on his way out of the Bernabeu and already Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is looking towards his direction in order to add some depth to his squad's attacking line. Real Madrid are interested in Liverpool's Luis Suarez and AS Monaco's Radamel Falcao - but who is the best solution for Los Blancos? Suarez relies on his speed and technique and he likes going away from the box and trying to create dangerous situations for himself and his teammates. On the other hand the Colombian spends much more time inside the box and tries to be in the right position to score any ball that comes to him. In other words Suarez is closer to the False Nine-type, while Falcao fits better in a formation with a classic striker at the top. Real Madrid's squad is full of players that can create situations for strikers to score. Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, An ...
Just like (really) old times for Liverpool FC As the boys in Spinal Tap once wisely observed, there is a fine line between stupid and clever. When Arsenal bid $60 million to bring that lovable scamp Luis Suarez to the Emirates over the summer, I worried that Arsene Wenger had finally descended into total oblivion. But much like the massive difference between 10 and 11 on a speaker amp, Wenger's subtle gambits take a keen eye to appreciate. If I had one, I might have picked up on the intent of Wenger's audacious poker play. He was never really interested in Suarez as anything more than a bluff, a Machiavellian masterstroke to throw Real Madrid off the Uruguayan's scent and to drive the price to such a preposterous level as to force the Spanish giants to channel all their energy -- and money -- into procuring Spurs' best player, Gareth Bale. As the Welshman's price tag soared to the heavens like Gervinho's hair line, Madrid found itself looking for someone to help defray the cost. Willkommen, Mesut Ozil, an ...

Wenger was an admirer of Bale when the Welshman was playing for Southampton as a youngster but Tottenham eventually signed the 23-year-old back in 2007. Wenger instead took Theo Walcott from St Mary's, and says he was aware of Bale but felt a move to sign him would not have been right at the time - something he now regrets. "Yes.

EPL FINAL DAY REPORTS: Arsenal's Barclays Premier League victory over Newcastle ensured they beat rivals Tottenham to the last Champions League place despite a late blockbuster from Gareth Bale on the final day of the season. With the title already secured by Manchester United and relegation matters settled in midweek, the settling of European issues was the main focus of the day. A 1-0 win for Arsenal at St James' Park saw Arsene Wenger continue his proud record of Champions League qualification in every season at the club. Tottenham did ensure a nailbiting finale when the irrepressible Bale secured a 1-0 win over Sunderland with a glorious 25-yard strike in the closing seconds. A Newcastle equaliser in the final seconds against Arsenal would have seen Spurs leapfrog their rivals into fourth but it never materialised. Chelsea, who started the day with the chance of a play-off with the Gunners for third place, avoided that fate with a 2-1 home win over Everton. On a day where 36 goals were scored in the t ...

Tottenham proved to be the superior side in the latest edition of the North London Derby, beating Arsenal 2-1 to go seven points clear of their rivals in the table. Perhaps sensing that their side's lackluster defending would ultimately be exposed by Gareth Bale, the Premier League's February Player of the Month, one Arsenal fan at White Hart Lane decided to engage in a bit of prop comedy and throw a banana at Bale as he prepared to take a corner kick in the first half. Though it's normally an act with racist connotations, the banana was intended for Bale because he has been subjected to the tiresome joke that he looks like a monkey for years now. And when a man is in the form of his life with eight goals in his last six games going into the derby, this is the sort of thing desperate people resort to as a way of making themselves feel slightly better for a fleeting moment. Shortly after the banana was thrown, Bale scored Spurs' first goal in the 37th minute. Two short minutes later, Aaron Lennon made it 2 ...

Gunners looking to restore pride vs Spurs Arsenal’s damaging Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich at the Emirates Stadium in February was the bookend of a terrible week for the Gunners. And things do not get easier for Arsene Wenger’s wounded men this weekend, when they make the short trip across North London to face their most detested rivals, Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs are the ascendant London club at the moment, having leapfrogged Chelsea into third-place on the Premier League log, four points ahead of the fifth-placed Gunners. Andre Villas-Boas is proving his mettle at the lane, helped by the stunning form of his Welsh talisman, Gareth Bale. Bale is the form player in the English top flight, and Arsenal’s rickety defence will have to be at the peak of their powers to stop him in his tracks. But Wenger insists that he and Arsenal are not especially worried about Bale ahead of the derby, and that it would be foolish to concentrate on one Spurs player only during the game. "Bale is not the subjec ...

Parker: Spurs form will worry Arsenal Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker believes Gareth Bale's stunning last-minute winner against West Ham on Monday night will have rocked Arsenal back onto their heels ahead of this weekend's North London Derby at White Hart Lane. "I've been in that position when you're playing and you're watching the scores come in and you hear there's been a last-minute goal in a game that's important for your side," says Parker. "You're praying it's gone the way you wanted it to and then you hear it's a goal for the team you didn't want to score. So it is deflating for a player watching, and I'm sure the Arsenal players are like that. "Gareth is a world-class player and at the moment he is scoring last-minute goals that are winning games for us. He was fantastic at West Ham and stepped up again to get us the three points." Parker believes the current Spurs squad is a step ahead of the pool of players Arsene Wenger has assembled at Arsenal, yet he is quick to play down suggestions that ...
Bale fires warning shot to Arsenal Arsenal were given a stark reminder tonight of just what they are up against in the fight for a Champions League spot next season. Another master class by Gareth Bale snatched victory for Tottenham after coming from behind to win at West Ham. The Gunners will need to be firing on all cylinders in order to win at White Hart Lane on Sunday, and Arsene Wenger will need to find a way to deal with the Welsh winger. It is fair to say that Spurs are completely reliable on Bale, but he on a brilliant run of form and scored another two goals against West Ham. He might have had more if Jaaskalainen had not been on top of his game with a string of saves. West Ham nearly did us a huge favour, deservedly taking the lead in the second half. With 15 minutes to go, Bale whipped in a vicious free kick that led to the equaliser. In the last minute, he took a chance from distance and produced an unstoppable shot to win it. Spurs are now in third place, and even if we beat them on Sunday wi ...

Arsenal striker Theo Walcott says his return to former club Southampton on New Year's Day will be "special." Walcott came through the youth ranks at Southampton before joining Arsenal in a big-money move as a raw teenager in January 2005. Arsenal raided the Saints again last summer when securing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in a £12m deal. Walcott's celebration when he scored against Saints in Arsenal's 6-1 victory earlier this season was muted, and he told the club's website: "It will be a very tough occasion against Southampton, but it is one I am really looking forward to. "It will be a very special moment for me and Alex, and also for some of the fans to see us come back to the club." Gunners boss Arsene Wenger feels Southampton deserve praise for their player development. "They have done a fabulous job - you also look at Gareth Bale and what he is doing now at Tottenham," he said. "It is down to the quality of their scouting, the quality of their coaching and education."

Emmanuel Adebayor went from Tottenham Hotspur's hero to zero against former club Arsenal as he scored and was then sent off in a dramatic 5-2 North London Derby defeat. The Togolese striker, who angered Arsenal fans when leaving for Manchester City in 2009 before this summer making a permanent transfer to Spurs after an initial loan, set up a typically hectic meeting at Emirates Stadium with the opener. Adebayor's goal added to his lack of popularity among Gunners fans following his controversial celebration three years ago for City when scoring in his first reunion with his ex-employers and then his penalty goal in last season's ultimate repeat 5-2 defeat for Spurs. But his emotions got the better of him shortly after the quarter-hour mark on Saturday and his red card for a lunge on Santi Cazorla allowed Arsenal to come back and win through Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, Cazorla and Theo Walcott despite Gareth Bale's consolation. Tottenham started well and, less than a minute after a Wi ...
