As a result, Liverpool’s Champions League last-16 first leg against RB Leipzig and Manchester City’s Champions League last-16 first leg against Borussia Monchengladbach will both be played in Budapest, Hungary,

Uefa thanked both clubs for their “close cooperation and assistance in finding a solution”, as well as the Hungarian Football Federation for agreeing to host the match.

Pochettino Wins First Trophy As A Manager

Mauricio Pochettino won the first trophy of his managerial career as Paris St-Germain beat Marseille to win the Trophee des Champions in Lens.

The Trophee des Champions is France’s version of the Community Shield – a game between the league and cup winners.

It was only the former Spurs manager’s third game in charge of PSG after being appointed earlier this month.

Mauro Icardi tapped home PSG’s opener from close range and won a penalty which Neymar scored for the second while Dmitri Payet scored a late consolation with a clever flick for Marseille.

Lionel Messi Hands In Transfer Request

Lionel Messi Transfer News

We knew things were bad at the Camp Nou between the Barcelona players and the board. We knew that Lionel Messi was upset but still we were shocked when the news came out that Messi had activated a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave on a free transfer this summer.

Although his contract is set to expire at the end of the 2020-21 season, Messi and his legal team believe the clause will allow him to terminate his deal unilaterally.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel has declared Lionel Messi is “very welcome” to join the club should the Barcelona star decide to pursue a move away from Camp Nou.

The Argentine legend has once again been linked with a possible Barca exit after seeing his side end the season without a trophy and lose 8-2 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Tuchel himself failed to guide his side past Bayern on Sunday as the Bundesliga giants claimed their sixth Champions League title with a 1-0 win over PSG.

PSG Make First Big Signing Of The Summer

Mauro Icardi

Paris Saint-Germain have finally completed the signing of Mauro Icardi from Inter for a reported €58m making this the biggest transfer in football since the coronavirus outbreak.

“FC Internazionale Milano announces the transfer of Mauro Icardi to Paris Saint-Germain FC: the striker, born in 1993, has permanently moved to the French club,” read a statement.

“The Club thanks the player for the six seasons he spent with us and wishes him the best for his future professional career.”

Icardi had been a huge success at Inter where he had scored 124 goals in 219 starts, but the incredibly short statement from the club reflected just how badly the relationship had deteriorated.
