The 10 Best Summer Free Agents, Ranked

With contracts ending on June 30, there's a slew of footballers who'll be free to sign with the club of their choosing in a few days. This is a list of who I believe to be the most valuable free agents on the market.

Trump Responds To Rapinoe By Tweet-Inviting USWNT To White House; Hilarity Ensues

The Trump-Rapinoe feud isn’t ending anytime soon. And we’re here for it, especially that Megan Rapino Twitter account (see below) that is absolute fire and in no way related to Megan Rapinoe the USWNT co-captain. 

The 5 Most Anticipated Mexican Player Transfers This Summer

Summer in the soccer world is a time of hope, drama, disappointment, loss and new beginnings. In a footballer’s life, it could be a time of complete change and new opportunities; new challenges to take on. This summer is proving no different. 

There is hope that teams can add players that will make them stronger and more competitive — take Real Madrid buying Eden Hazard and various others after a disappointing 2018-19 season. There is drama circulating too, with Gareth Bale being a lighting rod of speculation at Real as well. 

Maradona Wants To Manage Manchester United, And We Think That’s A Great Idea

In the upcoming July issue of FourFourTwo, Argentine legend and current Dorados manager Diego Maradona provides us with a fascinating thought: “If Manchester United need a coach, I’m the man to do it,” he says. “I know they sell lots of shirts around the world, but they need to win trophies, too. I can do that for them.”

Royal Baby, Seventh In Line To British Throne, Is Eligible To Play For USMNT

Let me just preface this by saying I usually don’t give any shits about the British royal family — or any royal family, for that matter.

Paul Scholes Quit His Coaching Gig After 31 Days — Via Text Message

The short-lived Paul Scholes coaching career might be over after 31 days.

Scholes took over for Pete Wild at League Two Oldham Athletic in February, the 44-year-old's first ever full-time coaching gig. About a month later, the former England midfielder quit after recording one win in seven matches. 

Now the manner in which Scholes quit has come to light, and it’s not flattering for the Manchester United legend.

Bob Bradley Keeps Comparing Carlos Vela To Lionel Messi And We Keep Laughing

It would be hard to argue that Bob Bradley isn’t the most accomplished American soccer coach. He was the first American to coach a Premier League team, he coached the Egyptian national team and he led the USMNT to first place in its group at the 2010 World Cup. 

But he should probably stop talking about this nonsense comparing Carlos Vela to Lionel Messi.

LAFC began the 2019 MLS season with a 2-1 come-from-behind win over Sporting KC on Sunday night. The match came on the heels of the LA club releasing its “We Are LAFC” documentary on ESPN+. 

Chelsea’s Upcoming Facelift This Summer Could Showcase Brand New Offense

To start off with the latest, the club has officially opened the door by announced the starting bidding price for the club’s top talent, winger Eden Hazard.

Chelsea will request $127 million for the Belgian star, who is rumored to be heading to Real Madrid.
