Bale of chaos! Gareth Bale’s next move will disrupt everything
Gareth Bale’s loan spell at Tottenham has come to an end, and what a way to end it as he came off the bench to inspire Spurs to a seventh place finish after Leicester took a first half lead on Sunday.
Gareth Bale will return to Real Madrid but he insists his destination is sorted and won’t disclosing until the summer window opens to avoid sparking chaos; whatever that means is left to be seen as soon as the window opens. Bale’s 11 goals in 20 appearances sealed Europa Conference League spot for Spurs.
Arsenal to open talks with Real Madrid for Martin Odeegard
Norwegian midfield sensation, Martin Odegaard has ended his loan spell at Arsenal, one that can be described as successful considering his impact but Mikel Arteta is confident he will return to Arsenal next term.
Arsenal loaned Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid, the second player from the Spanish capital after Dani Ceballos but the latter will not be returning to Arsenal after failing to impress, a major culprit in Arsenal’s Europa League elimination in the hands of Villareal.
Hazard wants out of Madrid
El Chiringuito, a late night show in Spain has claimed that Eden Hazard wants to leave Real Madrid and rejoin Chelsea.
The Belgian has endured a difficult spell at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium with injuries limiting him and failing to live up to his price tag having joined from Chelsea where he had a stellar career but he now feels it’s time for him to call it quit in Spain.
Hazard, 29 knows it’s now or never as he just can’t seem to adapt to life outside London.
Mikel Arteta to Barcelona?
Most news outlet in Spain are reporting that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is right on top of Barcelona’s wish list as a replacement for Ronald Koeman who is very likely to be relieved of his job when the season closes officially.
This will come as a shock move should they follow through with it considering how much Arteta has struggled to nail respect at Arsenal after what can be considered as a failed season, crashing out of the Europa League and finish outside European qualification altogether but let’s see where this leads.
Gennaro Gattuso to replace Andrea Pirlo?
Looks like it’s a day for shock managerial news as Tuttosport is reporting that the departed Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso is being eyed as a possible replacement for Andrea Pirlo who has been underwhelming at best at Juventus.
Andrea Pirlo was hired as a long term replacement for Mauricio Sarri but he has failed to turn Juventus around, not only losing the Scudetto but also struggling to nail a top four finish and had Napoli won on final day, Juventus would have finished fifth but is Gattuso the man to lead them forward?
