Jones Signs For French Champions

Phil Jones is the latest United player to leave as Brendan Rodgers continues his summer clear-out. Jones, 22 signs for the French Champions for a fee believed to be in the region of £18m. Jones however did not really want to leave and thinks that he was frozen out on purpose and then pushed out the door.

I think I have been harshly treated by Manchester United and will look forward to playing for a team that actually won there league last season! In Monaco, I have joined an elite group of players with the hunger and desire to succeed. I will look back on my United days with pride but I just can not wait to start the season in France. Manchester United fans I have a message for you, do not support Brendan Rodgers and try to force him our because you will not win anything while he is in charge!

In other news, long serving left back Patrice Evra today left the club on a free transfer. The 33 year old has been an amazing servant to Manchester United but in recent seasons had become a bit part player. With the emergence of Reece Jones and Aleksander Buttner the United manager Brendan Rodgers took the decision to not negotiate his contract.
Nice story mate, looking forward to seeing how your season progresses

Eriksen: I Am Ruling Nothing Out

Could Eriksen be on his way out of Spurs?

When told of his linking to Manchester United, Christian Eriksen did not tell the Spurs' fans what they wanted to hear. The attacking midfielder has only been at Tottenham for one season but he is understood to be very frustrated at being played out on the left instead of anywhere across the attacking midfield line.

I like playing for Tottenham but being played hopelessly out of position is effecting my domestic game. Manchester United under Brandan Rodgers play a very attack minded game and the formation that would suit me. I understand there are players already there at the moment who could potentially keep me out of the team but I deserve to go somewhere that has Champions League football to test myself and unfortunately it is not Tottenham.

Brendan Rodgers is desperately trying to nail a marque signing to go with Kevin Mirallas and with midfielders like Kagawa, Janazaj and Mata there could be room for one more player but Spurs will be tough to crack and are appently going to offer him a new contract.

United Finally Sign Someone!

In other news Aleksander Lacazette has joined Man Utd but will stay at Lyon for one more season. Lacazette, 23 has vowed to do his up-most to get Lyon into a Champions League place this season and then come to United and command a starting slot. However with Naismith, Van Persie, Bony and Jordan Rhodes already in the attack it will be tough going to start with.
ImDonkey Thanks man and it will be great :)

Tom Cleverly Signs New Deal And Christian Eriksen Signs

New deal for Cleverly

Tom Cleverly has put pen to paper in a new 4 year contract with Manchester United. The 24 year old central midfielder played 23 times last season and scored 1 goal. Tom really played his part last season in the squad itself. I think he has a really good chance of playing more next season too. Tom is a really good young player who should be able to play for England this season if he performs well enough.

Cleverly has signed a deal worth £67,000 a week and will be joined by former Tottenham man Christian Eriksen.

Eriksen becomes the second marquee signing

The Danish midfielder has signed for £21.5m and becomes the second 'marque' signing for Brendan Rodgers who was excited to have the 22 year old on board.

I am excited to have such a young, talented squad of players and I can not wait for the Community shield now. We need to knuckle down and concentrate on the prize and this season with this team I think we can win everything we are entered in. I have awesome youngsters out on loan and getting valuable first team experience and the squad that I now have is the best squad I have ever had at any club.

Rodgers has raided certain clubs for there best talents and it is rumoured that there is just a right back needed and he may go back to Spurs or Everton again for Kyle Walker or Seamus Coleman respectively. Kyle Walker would be the obvious choice being English but Nathanial Clyne is making the spot his own so Rodgers might look to a back up player and Aston Villa's Matt Lowton could the guy. He would require a small fee and would not mind being a back up but could also do a job when asked of him.
Eriksen is a very good midfielder..he will help you! Congrats!
AAN thanks and I hope he comes up trumps

World Cup Final report

With the weather being extremely sunny and hot Spain faced off against the Czech Republic in Maracana, Rio De Janeiro. The Czech's had beaten France, Germany and U.S.A in progressing to an unlikely final. There were up against Spain, who themselves had beaten Japan, Uruguay and England, were looking for back to back World Cups.

It was a dream start for the underdogs, when in the 3rd minute Gerard Pique hit a awful back pass to which Jan Lecjaks ran onto, rounded Iker Casillas to send Czech Republic into a shock 1-0 lead.

Jan Lecjaks scored the first goal in the World Cup

On the 9th minute it should have been two when Tubschman sent a wonderful ball over the spanish defence for Pilar to get the ball and drive home for what they thought was 2-0. Little did they know that the whistle had gone for offside. It was most definately not offside but was given and spain got away with it.

It was a boring half after that with Llorente and Silva going close.

Montoya spared the Spanish blushes

Spain had a complete onslaught in the second half. Mata, Iniesta and Fabragas all denied by Petr Cech. Spain made changes and Martin Montoya then hit the equaliser on the 82nd minute to break the spirit of Czech Republic. It then went to extra time.

Llorente scored the extra time winner

Spain kept bombarding Czech Republic's goal and despite Sergio Ramos being sent off in the 30th minute, Fernando Llorente hit the winner for Spain. It was a well deserved victory but you can not help but feel sorry Czech Republic because they had a chance of winning the World Cup but Spain make it back to back victories.

Spain lift the World Cup
Wow, you got Eriksen just 21.5 million.
Lucky you :(
How on Earth did Czech Republic played in the World Cup final?! Idk if my Italy can do this... :))

Brazilian Star Arrested!

Sandro tried to explain his sending off after the Ivory Coast Match

There is a shocking revelation today as at half time of the match between Manchester United and Zwolle it is rumoured that the former Spurs midfielder and Brazilian star Sandro has been arrested!

The arrest is to do with the World Cup match between Brazil and Ivory Coast. The news we at Sky Sports have managed to obtain is that there was a massive influx of bets on Sandro being sent off in the last 10 minutes of the match, which apparently netted a group of 'businessmen' in Brazil around £15,000,000. This was investigated and it has apparently been deemed that Sandro has links to the group of businessman and has therefore been arrested.

He is being held at Scotland Yard at the moment and FIFA, earlier this year said anyone who is being held for match fixing can not play at all until they have been proven guilty or not guilty.

Rodgers is a bit perplexed at the situation

Manchester United manager Brendan Rodgers spoke of his shock at the arrest and is sticking by his star midfielder. This is absurd and I am sure he will be proven not guilty of this and that it is a stitch up by the Brazilian authorities who have apparently released his name and hence he has been arrested.

Sherwood doesn't understand why Sandro would do it

Tottenham Manager Tim Sherwood also was shocked and puzzled by the arrest. I think it will all come out in the wash, I am sure he is innocent but thinking selfishly, if he tells the truth he will be back playing before he knows it but I hope we can play Manchester United before he is allowed back.

It will be interesting now to see if this stops the flow of United for the season and we hope Sandro is innocent!
Great twist buddy. Of all people, I can see Sandro being a dodgy fella haha! Hope you can cope without him and can't wait to see what goes on after this.
Fmhunter Yeah it intensifies soon
