Chelsea has spent PS445 million under Todd Boehly.
It’s been an exciting summer for Chelsea. A new regime and a new sporting director have taken over at Stamford Bridge. In the past six months, the team has spent PS445 million, most of which is a significant transfer outlay. However, despite their spending, it’s difficult to say if the club has made a difference in their fortunes.
In terms of signings, Chelsea has invested heavily in young players. This has included PS220m spent on seven players aged 24 and under. In addition, the team also signed more experienced players.
The most considerable outlay was for center-backs. Chelsea has paid PS100m for several players, some signing free deals. In addition, they have spent a significant amount on signings like Mykhailo Mudryk, Wesley Fofana, Kadeisha Buchanan, and Benoit Badiashile.
Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale was kicked by a fan
In the aftermath of an epic North London Derby, Aaron Ramsdale was attacked by a fan. After the final whistle, the Arsenal goalkeeper appeared to have been kicked by a Tottenham Hotspur supporter.
The incident happened a few minutes after Ramsdale and Richarlison were involved in a physical altercation on the pitch. After the game, Richarlison rebuked Ramsdale for his behavior.
Several players from both teams got into a clash. Ramsey and Richarlison argued before Ramsey tried to regain possession from behind the goal. But he was pulled away by stewards.
Aaron Ramsdale was later rushed off the pitch by stewards. He went to retrieve his water bottle from the back of the goal. When he came out, a fan ran in front of him.
Borussia Dortmund’s Sporting Director Sebastian Kehl spoke to ‘Kicker’
The latest buzz on the block is about Youssoufa Moukoko, the 18-year-old German striker enjoying a breakthrough season at Borussia Dortmund. He has scored six goals in 14 league matches and is the club’s top scorer this season.
Ahead of his contract expiry in June, Dortmund is trying to get Moukoko to commit to the club for the long haul. According to Kehl, the club has made a “beautiful offer,” and it is time for the youngster to decide. In addition, several European clubs have already shown interest in the player, including Barcelona, Liverpool, and Manchester United.
The Bundesliga club has set a deadline for the player to confirm his future. There is a possibility that the player will leave in the summer if the negotiations fail, but the club is reluctant to see Bellingham go.
Los Angeles is looking at a total offensive reboot.
If there were one football team that would make the list of losers, it would be the Los Angeles Rams. They are putting up numbers that will make your head spin, but they can’t quite deliver on the promise of a championship. Fortunately, the Rams aren’t the only team in town with a playoff spot on the line. The San Diego Chargers are 6-5, and they still have a chance at claiming a first-round bye.
One thing that the Rams have done well this season is their defense. Although they rank last in the NFL in total rushing yards, they haven’t allowed an offense with more than 200 rushing yards in a single game. That’s a feat in itself.
Man Utd is not expected to complete more transfer business in the January window
If Manchester United are looking to add a new player to their ranks in January, they will have to be prepared to go down a loan route. The January transfer window is traditionally a period of low activity in the transfer market and is a notoriously tricky time to do business.
But it is not just the January transfer window that will be challenging for United in the coming months. The World Cup is just a year away, and United will have to cope with players already on their books.
Amid all the speculation, there are still several names that are rumored to be linked with a move to Old Trafford. Here are three players that could be on the move next month.
Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and Champions League
When the UEFA season starts in August, the top four leagues will include Serie A, La Liga, the Premier League, and the Bundesliga. The best team will qualify for the UEFA Champions League group stage, and the team finishing fifth will be eligible for the UEFA Europa League group stage.
Even though Serie A is regarded as the most minor elite of the three, it has a higher level of tactical innovation than the Bundesliga. This is because Italian tactics show a greater capacity to fulfill the potential of a side.
Several large clubs have increased the number of non-EU players in recent years. These include Manchester United, Barcelona, Chelsea, Liverpool, and PSG,.
