Gareth Bale Hints At Premier League Return, Throws More Shade At Real Madrid

Gareth Bale will consider a return to the Premier League if his current club Real Madrid allow him to end his stint in Spain, the Wales international has said.

With Latest Signing, Chelsea Women Are Becoming A Super Team With One Target In Mind

Lyon won its fifth straight Women’s Champions League title (seventh overall) on Sunday. How on earth do you break OL’s hegemony when they’ve so thoroughly dominated Europe? 

Buy all the other best players in the world not on Lyon. At least, that appears to be Chelsea’s plan.
