World-Class Crystal Dunn Traded Away For Backup Goalkeeper, Allocation Money

In terms of all-around talent, I’m not sure there’s a better player in the world than Crystal Dunn. A world-class striker, she’s also proven to be a stellar fullback and midfielder — wherever she’s asked to play she’s one of the best at that position.

So it’s stunning to see one of the world’s best footballers traded around the NWSL for what amounts to a pittance compared to the value of this superstar.

Eduardo “Chofis” López is reportedly looking for a way out of Guadalajara after seven years with the senior side.

It’s Obviously Not A Good Time, But Pogba Wants To Tell You About His Real Madrid Dream

Manchester United and France midfielder Paul Pogba said he would love to play for Real Madrid one day but for now his focus is on helping his club side improve on their poor start to the Premier League season.

The 27-year-old World Cup winner admitted in 2019 that he wanted to leave United but no major offers came in for him and he spent most of last season sidelined with injuries.
