Manchester City's Only Chance Of Stopping Eden Hazard

Chelsea and Manchester City are highlighting matchday two in the Premier League and it will surely be a match not to miss. The two English giants have squads that would make anyone salivate over the sheer power and strength they share.

Neil Warnock Thinks Christian Benteke Still plays For Aston Villa

Aston Villa will host Manchester United this weekend in their first home opener match at Villa Park and will look for a second win despite many pivotal players leaving the club. At least Christian Benteke will start for Villa as a striker, right?

Sergio Ramos To Enter New Contract Negotiations With Real Madrid

Sergio Ramos is set to sign a new contract with Real Madrid, according to reports featured by ESPN, after negotiations take place on Thursday.  

Ramos has been the subject of repeated rumors linking him with a move to Manchester United.

The Best Of Enemies: Manchester United And Real Madrid Transfer History (Part 2)

De Bruyne Defuses Transfer Speculation, Has No Point To Prove

It’s a great time to be VfL Wolfsburg’s Kevin De Bruyne, shocking misses aside. He has just won the German Supercup for the second year running, beating Bayern Munich both times, no less. He is arguably the most sought after attacking midfielder in the world, and his play each and every week seems to only increase interest in him. He is the top dog in a very good team, and it seems that he is also aware and responsible for his actions, or at least that is what his latest words imply. 

Adidas Teases New Manchester United Kit On Vine

Last year, Manchester United and Adidas made waves when they announced a world-record kit deal, valued at a reported $1.3 billion over 10 years – $128 million per year to be precise. This came after a 13-year stretch with Nike as Manchester United's kit sponsor. That deal was worth an estimated $40 million per year, pittance compared to the new 10-year contract with Adidas.
