Man United Outclassed By PSG


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident Manchester United’s 2-0 Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain will not define theirseason.

Second-half goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe mean that the French champions have a healthy advantage going into the second leg at the Parc des Princes in three weeks’ time. United were dealt further blows with Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial having to be withdrawn, as well as Paul Pogba being sent off before the final whistle due to picking up a second yellow card

Solskjaer admitted PSG’s 2-0 victory provided a ‘reality check’ for United, who had not lost since Jose Mourinho’s last match in charge at Liverpool on December 16.

La Liga Furious Over Man City And PSG Financial Doping

Manchester City and Paris St-Germain “are cheating and should be sanctioned”, according to La Liga following financial conduct allegations.

German news magazine Der Spiegel says City and PSG overvalued sponsorship deals to help meet Uefa’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.

And it says that in 2014 the clubs negotiated with Fifa president Gianni Infantino, who was then general secretary of European football’s governing body Uefa, to agree reduced punishments.

City say they will not be commenting on the claims and that the attempt to damage their reputation is “organized and clear”.

Paris Saint-Germain are still going all out to land Chelsea’s French international N’Golo Kante, despite the Premier League side’s attempts to ward of interest by offering the midfielder a new deal.

The Premier League club are prepared to make the World Cup winner their highest paid player at £290,000 a week, a contract that will certainly catch the interest of Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

The deal would see Kante earn up to £15million over five seasons, however, the Ligue 1 champions have the financial clout to better that package.

Kylian Mbappe has been one of the stars of the World cup, and as a Real Madrid fan growing up, he has been linked with a move to Spain to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

So it is interesting with that backdrop that his mother is now publicly expressing her concern at the treatment that Mbappe is receiving at Paris Saint-Germain, and in particular the way team-mates Dani Alves and Neymar routinely mock the teenager’s appearance.

Is she paving the way for Mbappe to force a summer move to Real Madrid?
