As we know, Italy managed to defeat La Furi Roja in the Euro 2016 Round of 16 and can prepare for an even harder battle in the Quarter-Finals.
Italy and Spain were drawn together for the Euro 2016 Round of 16 encounter where La Furia Roja were favourites according to all sports scores news. All sportsbooks favoured Spain to go through and qualify for the Euro 2016 QFs yet the Italian side upset all odds with a relatively easy, 2-0 defeat against Vicente Del Bosque’s men.Sergio Ramos El Heroe de la Decima was incapable of saving his team despite the fact that he was having a great tournament all in all. Elimination was at an expensive price for Spain manager del Bosque: He resigned a few days earlier and now one of the biggest questions at online sportsbooks in Spain is who will be the successor of the former successful manager of Real Madrid.
Spain are home by now and the pre-season will start for most Furia Roja stars, including Sergio Ramos El Heroe de la Decima. The captain of Real Madrid must be really annoyed by the result as he got used to being successful and winning. Something which he and his national team has been incapable of doing in the past two years: after being humiliated in the 2014 World Cup, they once again made an early exit at Euro 2016, with a rather disappointing performance.
Sergio Ramos El Heroe de la Decima must be waiting for the new Spain manager as he is the leader and the team captain of the national team as well as his club, Real Madrid. The Sevillan central back signed a new contract last year at Real Madrid. The Sergio Ramos signature on the paper made sure that he will belong to the Royal Club until 2020. That signature shut down tons of rumours about him leaving the Galacticos for joining Manchester United. These rumours were, at some point, regarded as one of the most certain gambling facts according to many online sportsbooks in the UK.
The European Championship is about to reach to its finish and Sergio Ramos El Heroe de la Decima will not be in it any longer, for which he must be really upset. However, he must accept that his national team does not dominate the football world any longer and it’s time for a new era with new set of players s well as a new manager. Most probably the new manager will still count on the team captain as there can be no complaints about his performances.
On the other hand, Italy will face World Cup holder Germany in the Quarter Finals of Euro 2016. According to the latest gambling news, Germany will be favourites for the encounter, yet it’s time to take Italy seriously. They already proved that they have a great team by easily defeating title-favourite Belgium in the first matchday of Euro 2016 and they also knocked out Euro title holder Spain in the Round of 16 with a pretty confident team performance.
Italy are not underdogs any longer at this point of the tournament as they have openly declared their intention of winning the trophy. Should they defeat Germany as well, they would definitely be the strongest candidates towards victory: defeating the World Cup holder after eliminating the Euro holder would be a major confidence-boost for Conte’s men.
On the other hand, Portugal eliminated Poland on penalties and are waiting for their opponent in the semi-finals, which will be the winner of the Wales v Belgium encounter. The winner of the Germany v Italy game will face the winner of the France v Iceland clash where the Icelandic dreams are expected to end finally, as the hosting nation are clear favourites for the clash.
As the Premier League clubs are about to strengthen their squads, the biggest names in European football are involved in the discussions about possible transfer moves. It looks like Manchester United will finally acquire Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin, but it is also possible that they will get competition if they really want to bring Sergio Ramos to Manchester, as City is reportedly interested too. The Blues are in talks about signing Juve’s Paul Pogba as well, but his enormous transfer fee could prevent the Frenchman’s move to Etihad Stadium.
Online gambling news reported that Manchester United could present French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin as their new player as early as Wednesday. Schneiderlin’s possible departure from Southampton was broadly discussed in the media since January, so the deal that is taking shape shouldn’t upset any of those who follow sports scores news.
Schneiderlin is considered as one of the finest holding midfielders in the Premier League and he is expected to take over Michael Carrick’s place in front of the United backline. This will be the Frenchman’s first opportunity to participate in the Champions League, as the Red Devils qualified for the competition again after a year of absence.
The French media reports that Man United will pay for Schneiderlin a fee around EUR 30 million (GBP 20 million) and according to English reports, the deal could be finalized this week. Schneiderlin was also linked with a move to the Emirates however Arsenal seems to be outbid by United.
The two giant clubs from Manchester have to battle against each other for Real Madrid’s Spanish World Champion and Champions League winnig defender, Sergio Ramos, gambling news report. Manchester United is looking for his signature for a while, and a possible deal also involving David de Gea was also emerged from the press.
However, according to the English media, Manchester City now entered the race for Ramos as the Blues’ board is watching the situation closely. If the contest will become more serious, this could be one of the most interesting transfer sagas of the summer.
Meanwhile former United star goalkeeper, Peter Schmeichel suggests De Gea to stay at Old Trafford as he is on his way to become a legend for the Manchester club. The Spanish goalie expressed before that he wanted to move to Real Madrid, however the Danish icon sees a bright future ahead of De Gea at Old Trafford.
In the meantime Manchester City is just about to bring the young French star, Paul Pogba to Etihad Stadium from Juventus. The Turin-based club asks EUR 100 million (GBP 70 million) for one of its top asset and Pogba’s salary demand is reportedly EUR 12 million (GBP 8.5 million) for a year after tax, which means something around a GBP 160,000 salary per week.
All this won’t include the EUR 10 million fee of his agent, Mino Raiola, who is reportedly in talks with Txiki Begiristain, Manchester City’s director of football, according to latest gambling news. Pogba is also heavily linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid, and some experts speculate that City will miss out on Pogba eventually because of the high fee.
Though Barcelona is banned from transfers for this summer, they will be able to bring in new players in January. The Frenchman’s previous club, Manchester United was also keen to bring Pogba back, but the midfielder expressed that he is not interested in a move back to Old Trafford where he hardly got any chances to prove himself in the 2011-2012 season he spent there.
