This Is Why Lionel Messi Is Leaving Barcelona

Last week I was happily reporting to you that Lionel Messi had touched down back in Barcelona to put pen to paper on a new five-year contract at the Camp Nou.

Manchester United Reunites With Ronaldo And Now Has The Beefiest Potential XI In EPL

Manchester United isn’t playing around this summer and has had arguably the best transfer window out of all Premier League teams. Other than PSG, the potential Manchester United starting XI 2021 looks like the best in Europe.
