‘You can never say…’ – Reported Liverpool target responds to Anfield links

Christoph Baumgartner has responded to reports linking him with a switch to either Liverpool or Manchester United, appearing to confirm his contentment with remaining at Hoffenheim.

The 21-year-old was briefly rumoured to be a target for the Reds’ recruitment team, with the club said to be searching for a potential replacement for former No.5 Gini Wijnaldum.

“It is, of course, better if there are positive rumours instead of negative ones,” the Austria international was quoted as saying by Sport 1 (via Sport Witness).

“But I feel very comfortable here and can develop well here. In football, you can never say 1000 per cent of what happens within a few months – but I am very happy here and see a great opportunity here to develop myself and the team.

“Last year, I slipped into a role that I really like and that I can use to develop personally.

Former Colombian footballer wants to see Everton ace with national team

This summer, Colombia national team manager Reinaldo Rueda decided not to have Everton FC midfielder James Rodriguez for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers and Copa America. 

Rueda’s decision was controversial in Colombia, considering the player’s status in his native country. The decision to leave Rodriguez generated a deep division of opinions among the fans.

During the program Futbolred (via Marca), former Colombian footballer Adolfo Valencia discussed the issue regarding Rodriguez. Valencia states that the time has come for Rodriguez to “understand and acknowledge that mistakes are sometimes made.”

Valencia went on … Read the rest

Barcelona and the multi-layered benefits of parting ways with Griezmann

Subsequent to the widespread, though now dead rumours that Antoine Griezmann could be shipped to Atletico de Madrid in exchange for Saul Niguez, there was just about as strong a sense of relief as there was despair. A normally unified fanbase found itself split right down the middle, as few truly knew what to make of the situation.

The camp that argued in favour of him staying held the belief that giving him away would be detrimental to the dynamics of the team. After all, due to injuries and slow recoveries, Barcelona currently have no active wingers at their disposal, only makeshift wide players, as is the case with midfielder Alex Collado and with Griezmann himself when Barca used the 4-3-3.

There is also the worry that letting him go would mean that structural integrity would be at an all-time low. This is due to the fact that the forward … Read the rest

Earlier today, the Xbox Wire Editor in Chief, Will Tuttle, dropped some brand-new information about the many different biomes players will be able to find in Forza Horizon 5. Many of these locations were shown off over multiple livestreams back in June, but they never discussed the finer details about these places.

A few places were talked about during their E3 programming surrounding this game, but we now know the specific names of all 11 biomes along with a few other facts. The biggest being that season will be returning in Forza Horizon 5. Tuttle went into detail on how this returning feature will have an impact on the new game.

‘You worry for Liverpool’ – PL rivals are highlighting major concern for Reds, says ex-England No.1

Paul Robinson has noted that the potential spending power of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea highlights the lack of financial flexibility on Liverpool’s part.

Player exits have dominated the Reds’ window thus far, with it being accepted that sales will play a critical role in freeing up the funds necessary to bring in further new signings beyond Ibrahima Konate.

“It is a really big window for them. There is talk about Salah and Henderson leaving,” the former England shotstopper told Football Insider.

“Yes, they have recouped close to £30million but we know they did not have a huge transfer budget before that. So they could probably only add one quality player with that money.

“When you look at what Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are planning to spend in this window, you worry for Liverpool. You question their financial power.”

It’s a reality that has left some wondering … Read the rest

Liverpool risk missing out on ideal midfielder as club establish maximum they’re prepared to pay

Liverpool face the possibility of missing out on Saul Niguez, with the club not prepared to meet Atletico Madrid’s demands.

That’s according to Todo Fichajes, who first of all note of the Reds’ desire to get Saul through the door this summer.

Saul has been a key player for Atletico Madrid over a number of successful years.

The midfielder was not at his best last term, which has intensified speculation that he could depart the Wanda Metropolitano.

Perhaps the downturn in his performance level has left Liverpool unwilling to splash the cash, as Todo Fichajes claim they aren’t prepared to pay a penny above €40M [£34M].
