Barca can save 99 million euros when buying 2 Liverpool stars

The Daily Star source said that when selling Philippe Coutinho to Barca in January 2018, Liverpool added a special provision to prevent the opponent from continuing to “suck blood” in the future. If Barca buys any additional Liverpool player before the end of 2020, they must pay an additional 99 million euros, not including transfer fees.

Barca are intending to buy Wijnaldum and Mane from Liverpool

Therefore, Barca must wait until this special term ends in January 2021 to ask to buy Mane or Wijnaldum. However, Barca also found it difficult to buy more stars at the beginning of the year. They were in financial trouble due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Haaland set up 8 amazing milestones after winning the Golden Boy award

Erling Haaland celebrated the 2020 Golden Boy award by setting a record against Dortmund in the Bundesliga victory over Hertha.

Haaland has just won the Golden Boy 2020 – Golden Boys award for the best U21 player of the year. On the same day, the Norwegian striker set up a poker shot to help Dortmund beat Hertha 5-2. With this poker shot, Haaland has set up many proud milestones in their young career.

Erling Haaland needed 33 minutes after the break to decide the match in Berlin. At the age of 20 and 4 months, Haaland is the youngest player in history to score 4 goals in a single match in the Bundesliga.

Haaland has scored his 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd goals. No player has ever scored so many in his first 22 appearances in the Bundesliga. The Norwegian star replaced the legendary Uwe Seeler when the former Hamburg striker “only” scored 20 goals in this time period.

Haaland scored 23 goals in 22 Bundesliga games

Haaland has 10 goals in 8 games, leveling Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s record for Dortmund in 2015/16 and 2017/18.

Haaland has scored 19 out of 23 goals after the break, with no player doing better than before. Coach Hertha – former top striker Bruno Labbadia commented: “He has extremely good and the quality ball moves. He waited for his chance and then finished. He’s too perfect for his age. ”

Haaland only needs 15 minutes to score the first 3 goals against Hertha. It was the first perfect hat-trick (with both right foot, left foot, and header) in the Bundesliga since April 2019 (Hoffenheim’s Ishak Belfodil against Augsburg).

Haaland just won the Golden Boy award

In the Dortmund shirt, Aubameyang had a perfect hat-trick in November 2016 on a trip to Hamburg. Only Norbert Dickel and Manfred Burgsmuller scored a faster hat-trick at Dortmund. In his Dortmund debut on January 18 against Augsburg (5-3), Haaland scored 3 goals in 23 minutes, faster than any player in the Bundesliga.

Haaland just won the Golden Boy award

Two and a half weeks ago, Haaland scored twice against Club Brugge in the Champions League (3-0). The 1.94-meter high striker scored his 13th and 14th goals, with no player doing any better in his first 11 games.

In the Champions League on September 17, 2019, with Salzburg meeting Genk (6-2), Haaland scored 3 goals in one half – no player succeeded in such a debut.

Maguire has the highest winning rate in the Premier League

Harry Maguire’s combat ability at MU was recognized, as he had just shown in the victory over Everton. MU captain Maguire had a stellar match at Goodison Park last season, yielding a 1-1 draw. This time he played the same way when he helped “Red Devils” win 3-1 convincingly.

So, it is not surprising that Maguire is ranked highly when compared to other Premier League defenders thanks to its ability to win in aerial battles, even against higher opponents. England international topped the dogfighting charts with an 88.2% win rate, the same as Chelsea midfielder Kurt Zouma.

These two defenders outperformed City’s rookie Ruben Dias, Burnley’s James Tarkowski, and West Brom’s Semi Ajayi. The striker has won 30 air disputes in the Premier League 2020/21, ranked 8th in number, but MU currently plays less than most opponents.

Maguire is very strong in aerial combat

Maguire has the highest win rate in the Premier League

In the 2019/20 season, this figure is 193, 100 more than the last campaign with Leicester City. Maguire’s current win rate is much higher than in any previous season and it will be difficult to maintain such a high success rate.

However, Maguire made seven rounds with a header for MU on Saturday to repel Everton, although still far from the unusual 17 in last season’s match also at Goodison Park.

It will be interesting to see if Maguire can continue to maintain the rate until the end of the season. However, surely MU fans are more assured with their ability to block entry balls. penalty area.

Stars of MU and Man City are at the top of the world

The two stars of MU and Man City, De Bruyne and Fernandes, were voted among the best players in the world in the 2019/20 season.

Man City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has been named the second-best player in the world in a new poll. Goal page has just announced a list of the 50 best players on the planet. It includes 25 male and 25 female players, gathered after a “global vote” based on performances in the 2019/20 season.

De Bruyne excelled in the Man City shirt

MU midfielder Bruno Fernandes is the 22nd best male footballer. Six Liverpool players on the list include Jordan Henderson, Mo Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago Alcantara, Sadio Mane, and Virgil van Dijk.

But De Bruyne is the star playing in the Premier League with the highest ranking. He is even above Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Cristiano Ronaldo. He is second only to striker Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich.

Ramos and his super defenders scored in the 21st century

Midfielder Sergio Ramos is leading the list of the world’s most scoring defenders at the club level in the 21st century.

In modern football, defenders not only focus on defense but also actively participate in assisting attacks. That’s why defenders are scoring more and more in the 21st century. But who is the best defensive player with the record?

Transfermarkt’s data shows that Sergio Ramos is the only defender to score more than 100 goals in the 21st century. The Spaniard has scored 103 goals in 624 games for Sevilla and Real Madrid.

The talent of Ronald Koeman

Since 2000 only, Ramos’ record far surpasses second-placed midfielder John Terry who has scored 66 goals in 573 appearances for Chelsea. The next positions respectively belonged to Naldo (65), Daniel Van Buyten (53), Roberto Carlos (53), and Gerard Pique (53).

Among the Top 10 best goal scorers of the 21st century, Brazil has contributed the most players with Naldo, Roberto Carlos, and Dani Alves. Spain and England have two players together, the rest coming from Belgium, Serbia, and Norway.

Sergio Ramos is a great defender in the football history

However, the record of Sergio Ramos is still far below the record of a defender that belongs to Ronald Koeman. During the competition, the incumbent coach of Barca played both midfield and midfield positions. As a result, Koeman scored 239 goals for Groningen, Ajax, PSV Eindhoven, Barca, and Feyenoord.

The former Dutchman also leads the list of most scoring defenders for both club and team with 253 goals, more than double the number of Sergio Ramos who is ranked 6th with 127 goals.

Messi and Ronaldo missed the most penalty kick in the 21st century

Ronaldo and Messi are both penalty specialists, but also the most missed shots from the 11m mark of any player in the 21st century.

Messi scored 5/6 goals with a penalty for Barca this season

However, despite his recent record of free-kicks, Messi must not like to look at the list of 40 most failed penalty kickers in the 21st century. According to Transfermarkt, Messi topped the list after missing 27 out of 126 penalties. Ronaldo is next with 27 failed shots out of 162 times out of 11 meters.

Ronaldo missed 27 penalties in his career

In the top 10, there are other penalty experts such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Frank Lampard, and Sergio Aguero.

MU vs Everton: the pressure from the negotiating table to the pitch

MU faced Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League while the two sides were constantly tense on the transfer negotiation table.

The strained relationship between the two clubs has prevented Everton from buying MU Sergio Romero and Marcos Rojo over the past 15 months. It is understood that the hostility originated in 2014 when MU agreed to sell Tom Cleverley to Aston Villa for £ 7.5 million.

Sergio Romero cannot leave MU to go to Everton

Everton seemed to have closed the deal while Cleverley was on his way to get a medical check, but by the time their £ 5.5m offer was rejected by Man United, it was too late for a move to Villa to be made. show.

Sergio Romero cannot leave MU to go to Everton

Cleverley just left on a loan and joined Everton for free a year later. Since then, the Glazers have had a grudge against The Toffees. This contributed in part to the demise of the Romero and Rojo negotiations.

Romero was preparing to move to Everton last month after Dean Henderson returned to MU from Sheffield United. The Argentinian goalkeeper is ready to reduce his salary to go to Goodison Park. However, MU asks for a loan fee of £ 3 million despite being ready to lend Romero to other clubs for free.

MU did not let Rojo come to Everton for free

Everton only accepted to pay £ 2 million and ended up signing Robin Olsen from Roma on the deadline date. When the two clubs held talks about Rojo in the summer of 2019, Everton failed for £ 22m before agreeing on a loan deal. Ironically, MU then “turned around” to ask for a fee for this defender.

The lineup of the Everton vs MU match on November 7th

More than ever, the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer teachers and students in this match is enormous. Fortunately for the red half of Manchester, tonight they will welcome the return of striker Anthony Martial after 3 matches having to sit out due to a suspension.

Of course, the French striker will kick the highest in the away team’s 4-2-3-1 scheme. The three players placed right behind Martial are most likely Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, and Marcus Rashford. Meanwhile, Scott McTominay and Fred will form the central midfield pair.

On the opposite side, goalkeeper Jordan Pickford will return to the official squad. He gave up his position to Robin Olsen in a 1-2 defeat to Newcastle. James Rodriguez is also predicted to start from the beginning with the hope of finding the joy of victory for the home team.

How impressive is Rashford’s hat-trick in MU history?

Marcus Rashford followed coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to become a MU player to score a hat-trick from the bench after his performance against RB Leipzig.

Rashford has just set a new Champions League record by completing a hat-trick against Leipzig with 27 minutes on the field. The best previous record went to Kylian Mbappe with 38 minutes against Club Brugge last year.

Thus, Rashford became the second player in MU history to score 3 goals in a non-main match. The one who did the same before was Solskjaer but got even better in 1999.

Rashford scored a hat-trick in 16 minutes for MU with 27 minutes on the field

The Norwegian forward scored four goals in an 8-1 win over Nottingham Forest in the treble-winning season. Ole came on from the bench in the 72nd minute, scoring in the 80th, 88th and 90th minutes, before adding a final goal in extra time.

Rashford scored a hat-trick in 16 minutes for MU with 27 minutes on the field

So where does Rashford’s record of 3 goals in 16 minutes rank among MU’s fastest hat-tricks in all history?

Statistics show that he still lost to his teacher when Solskjaer scored 3 goals in 10 minutes against Forest. Alan Gowling also scored 3 goals in 10 minutes against Southampton in 1971.

MU’s fastest hat-trick in the Premier League currently belongs to Dwight Yorke. His third goal came just 19 minutes after his opener in a 2001 win against Arsenal 6-1. Rashford became the 93rd player to score three or more goals in a match for Man Utd, following teammate Anthony Martial’s strike against Sheffield United last season.

This is also the first hat-trick of the “Red Devils” in the European arena since Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored 3 goals against Saint-Etienne in the Europa League in 2017. In the Champions League, fans must return to 2015 to see Wayne Rooney’s hat-trick against Club Brugge in qualifying.

Liverpool confirmed the worst about Van Dijk after the injury

Liverpool finally has to accept the worst about Virgil van Dijk after having a test result for a knee injury.

Van Dijk was seriously injured after a terrible save by Jordan Pickford in the Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool. The home team goalkeeper made a rough foul in the 6th minute. This made the Dutch midfielder to leave the field soon.

After Van Dijk was taken to the hospital, Liverpool confirmed his star had damaged knee ligaments and would require surgery.

Some sources claim that Van Dijk faced 7 to 8 months of sidelity, means missing out on the remainder of the season.

Liverpool and coach Juergen Klopp are preparing for the worst that could happen to Virgil van Dijk after his defensive backbone was injured against Everton. After the match with Everton, Van Dijk was taken to the hospital to check his left knee after a dreadful strike from goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the early minutes.

Liverpool or any other source has not confirmed this, meaning that Van Dijk’s status is still unclear. Although being very angry about the VAR technology‘s decision to both the situation where Van Dijk was fouled and Jordan Henderson’s goal was denied, what is concerned about Liverpool now is Van Dijk.

All will become clear after the scan results. However, the best case is the damage to the mid-ligament, which can be treated without surgery.

Liverpool may play without Van Dijk for the rest of the season

However, if Liverpool’s record signing suffered a pre-cross ligament injury, he would need surgery and would mean miss out on the rest of this season.

Van Dijk is not the only Liverpool player to be hospitalized. Thiago Alcantara was also screened after a terrifying tackling from Richarlison, who later apologized. The Brazilian was sent off and faced a three-match ban.

Neymar surpassed Ronaldo in scoring for Brazilian football team

Neymar overcame the scoring record of “Fat Ronaldo” in the Brazilian national shirt to become the second-best striker in history.

Neymar scored 3 goals to help the Brazilian team beat Peru 4-2 in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. These three goals helped Neymar score 62, 63, and 64 for the Selecao.

Thus, Neymar overcomes the scoring achievements of “fat Ronaldo” for the Brazilian team. Since his debut in 2010, Neymar has 103 appearances and has scored 64. Meanwhile, Ronaldo has scored 62 goals in 98 games.

Neymar scored 64 goals for the Brazilian team

Currently, Neymar is only behind Pele in the list of the best strikers in the history of the Brazilian team. Pele’s scoring performance is impressive as he only needs 92 games to score 77 goals, averaging 0.83 goals per game. Meanwhile, Neymar reached 0.61 goals/game.

But what’s important is that Neymar is only 28 years old and has plenty of opportunities to play for the Selecao in the coming years. Therefore, just maintaining the current scoring style, the ability to score 14 more goals to break Pele’s record is a task within reach.

Neymar overcomes the scoring achievements of “fat Ronaldo”

Neymar became the king of assists in the World Cup qualifiers

The striker did not score for Brazil in the match against Bolivia but continued to assert the position of a king of assists in the World Cup qualifying round.

The Brazilian team opened the 2022 World Cup qualifiers with a jubilant victory over Bolivia. Of the 5 goals that have been poured into the opponent’s net, it is a pity that Neymar has no name, despite facing favorable opportunities.

Marquinhos, Roberto Firmino (double), Carrasco (own goal), and Philippe Coutinho scored, creating a 5-0 victory for Brazil.

The consolation for Neymar was that he contributed 2 assists for Firmino and Coutinho to score. It was the second time he scored a double assisting in a match after his performance against Bolivia four years ago.

So far, Neymar has reached 10 assists in the World Cup qualifiers and led the list in the South America region in the last two qualifying periods. In total, he has 44 assists for the Selecao in his career.

Neymar teammate Firmino with a double goal against Bolivia also became the fourth player under Tite to reach 10 or more goals for Brazil after Gabriel Jesus (15), Neymar (14), and Coutinho (13).
