Chelsea set for €30m offer for Getafe star Marc Cucurella. Frank Lampard is in the market for a new left back ahead of the 2020-21 season.

Premier League side Chelsea are reportedly set to step up their interest in Getafe’s Marc Cucurella, with a €30m summer offer.

Cucurella joined Jose Bordalas’ side in a permanent switch in March after arriving on loan at the start of the 2019-20 campaign.

The Spanish U21 international has enjoyed an eye-catching season in the south of Madrid. Bordalas’ side narrowly missed out on a second successive Europa League qualification.

Frank Lampard is in the market for a new left back ahead of the 2020-21 season, and Cucurella, who can play at left back or left wing, could be a perfect addition, as per reports from Diario AS.

Getafe want to keep hold of Cucurella, with Bordalas in a strong position due to a full transfer being agreed less than four months ago.

However, he does have a €25m release clause, and the Blues could use that to leverage a deal, with doubts over the long term futures of Marcos Alonso and Emerson.

Barcelona would be eligible for a 40% windfall from any potential deal, as per the terms of his move from the Camp Nou.

Roy Keane says Frank Lampard edges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season. “Frank’s done a better job, I have to say. He’s brought a lot of young players in.”

Manchester United legend Roy Keane believes Frank Lampard has done a better job than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.

Lampard and Solskjaer both guided their sides into the top four on the final day of the season after wins over Wolves and Leicester respectively.

But Keane believes the Blues boss has performed wonders in his debut season considering he was unable to sign players last summer and lost his best player in Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.

“Frank’s done a better job, I have to say,” admitted the former United midfielder on Sky Sports.

“I expect them to be there or thereabouts. But the way they’ve played, the way Frank comes across, he comes across really well.”

“There’s no nonsense about him. He’s made big decisions, he’s brought a lot of young players in, good players, good quality. But they’ve needed an opportunity, they took it.”

“They finished in the top four and obviously if they can win an FA Cup, great achievement.”

Leo is now the second most popular baby name in Catalunya. This shows the ever-growing influence of Messi in Barcelona and the surrounding areas.

Today, Leo is the second most popular boys’ name in Catalunya – 12% to be precise – and it only sits behind Marc in the rankings table.

According to the data from the Institut Català de l’Estadistica, 662 boys were named Marc and 500 called Leo in 2019. The name Leo broke the 100-barrier in 2009 when Barça won the treble.

In 2017, Leo was already up to 12th on the list. In 2018, it rose to 6th and in 2019 it’s now 2nd.

When Leo Messi arrived in Barcelona in 2000, only four baby boys were named Leo in Catalunya.

Four years later, and after the Argentine had made his debut for Barça’s first team, there were 11 boys named Leo.

Gary Neville urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to splash out on new players. “They need to invest it again but do it properly this time.”

Gary Neville believes Manchester United ‘need to invest properly’ to prosper in the Champions League next season and close the gap to Liverpool and Manchester City in the Premier League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side secured their return to Europe’s elite competition with a 2-0 win at Leicester City on the season’s final afternoon.

But they ultimately finished 33 points behind champions Liverpool and 15 behind City with former United defender Neville saying the squad still needs improvement.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Neville said: “I think it’s a big day for Ole, it gives him some peace and demonstrates progress.”

“They can play a different way now, they were very basic in his first six months. “With [Mason] Greenwood emerging and [Bruno] Fernandes, they look like they can win games in different ways.”

“They need more players in their squad. The last time they finished in the top four was under Jose Mourinho. And they spent £170million in that summer and didn’t invest it wisely. They need to invest it again but do it properly this time to get nearer to Liverpool and Manchester City.”

“They need to improve the first XI. That’s not a detriment to the first XI from today. It’s about making sure they get in players who want to play for the club. United have never really done that.”

Leonardo Bonucci admits Juventus struggle to understand Maurizio Sarri. “We started a new era, a new philosophy, ran into so many difficulties.”

The Bianconeri achieved history with this evening’s 2-0 victory over Sampdoria, ensuring they have won the Scudetto under Antonio Conte, Max Allegri and Maurizio Sarri.

“It was the most beautiful title, because it was the most difficult,” Bonucci told Sky Sport Italia.

“We started a new era, a new philosophy, ran into so many difficulties. But we continued to give our all throughout, even when there were so many slip-ups.”

“We struggled at times to interpret the coach’s philosophy. But we remained a team, we worked as great men more than great players. Now we’ll try to rest over the next 10 days and then prepare for the next challenge.”

Jamie Vardy becomes oldest Premier League Golden Boot winner at the age of 33 after finishing the 2019-20 season with 23 goals.

Vardy fired a blank in Leicester’s 2-0 loss against Manchester United on Sunday – a result that saw the Foxes miss out on a top-four finish – to make it three games without a goal to see out the season.

However, the ex-England international still finished a goal clear of Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Danny Ings of Southampton at the top of the scoring charts.

He overtakes Didier Drogba, 29 goals for Chelsea in 2009-10 at the age of 32, as the oldest recipient.

Aubameyang shared the accolade with Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah last season. Though the Liverpool pair finished this campaign with 18 and 19 goals respectively.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer pleased to have proved critics wrong. “I believe in what I do and believe in what I’ve been doing. We all have different ideas.”

Solskjaer is delighted to have proved the critics wrong by doing it his way at Manchester United after they finished third in the Premier League.

United confirmed their place in the top four with a 2-0 win over Leicester City, meaning Solskjaer’s side will play Champions League football next season.

They also extended their unbeaten streak to 14 games in the Premier League with the win, which is their longest run without defeat in the league since April 2017.

It caps a fine end to the campaign for Solskjaer, who has steered United back into Europe’s top competition despite only being in the top four for the last two matchdays.

“I don’t think many were predicting it, the predictions were for us to finish sixth or seventh,” he said.

“I believe in what I do and believe in what I’ve been doing. We all have different ideas of management and I do it my way. That’s the only way I can do it.”

“It’s a massive achievement by the staff and players. They are incredible. I had a chat with all of them today saying no matter what happened today we’d had a fantastic season.”

Kai Havertz drops transfer hint after liking Instagram post of Timo Werner. The Leipzig star lands in London for Chelsea vs Wolves.

CHELSEA fans believe Kai Havertz has dropped a huge transfer hint after liking an Instagram picture of Timo Werner landing in London.

The Bayer Leverkusen star fuelled reports he could be set to follow his German compatriot to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Hakim Ziyech has already joined up with the Blues and impressed during a number of training sessions.

And Werner soon followed suit after touching down in London before Chelsea’s must-win clash against Wolves.

He beamed as he was pictured at Stamford Bridge for the first time and tweeted: “My new home! Come on, @ChelseaFC.”

The 24-year-old decided against remaining with RB Leipzig for the rest of their Champions League run after agreeing a £53million move.

Werner took to Instagram earlier in the day to post a photo of himself standing on an airport runway with the caption: “Landed in…Guess where?”

Eagle-eyed fans soon spotted that Chelsea’s next target Havertz was quick to like the picture.

Jesse Lingard scores first Premier League goal this season and costs fans. Lingard made the result safe in the 98th minute.

He ruined one punter’s longshot bet by waiting until the final minute of the Premier League season to score his first goal.

Manchester United needed to avoid defeat to Leicester on Sunday to secure Champions League football – and Lingard made the result safe in the 98th minute.

Kasper Schmeichel dawdled on a clearance and was caught by the 27-year-old midfielder, who snatched the ball and rolled it into the empty net.

Adding to Bruno Fernandes’ earlier penalty, the finish made it 2-0 to United and guaranteed them third-place.

It was also Lingard’s first goal or assist in the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

One punter ruing the goal, however, was the person behind a bet that has since gone viral on social media.

They had appeared to place a tenner on Lingard failing to bag a goal or assist throughout the whole 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

And their winnings of £670 were agonisingly denied with the final kick of the season.

Cristiano Ronaldo scores as Juventus seal Serie A title. Juventus players danced in celebration and embraced each other in front of the empty stands.

Ronaldo scored his 31st goal of the Serie A season as Juventus beat Sampdoria 2-0 to win the title for a ninth successive time.

At the final whistle, Juventus players danced in celebration and embraced each other in front of the empty stands inside the Allianz Stadium.

For his 31st goal in 32 matches, Ronaldo completed a set-piece when Miralem Pjanic rolled across a free-kick for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to fire into far top corner in first-half stoppage time.

Federico Bernardeschi then sealed the win by scoring his first Serie A goal in nearly two years by knocking in a rebound of Ronaldo’s shot midway through the second half.

Sampdoria were reduced to 10 men when Morten Thorsby picked up his second yellow for a foul on Pjanic 13 minutes from the end.

Ronaldo then missed the chance to increase his haul as he struck the crossbar with an 89th-minute penalty.

Still, Juventus moved an insurmountable seven points clear of Inter Milan with two games remaining.
