Schalke cool Goretzka to Bayern talk

  Schalke cool Goretzka to Bayern talk Schalke's sporting director insists he has heard nothing from Leon Goretzka or the Germany midfielder's agent about joining Bayern Munich.Bayern appear to have stolen a march in the pursuit of the 22-year-old, with Marca and Sport Bild reporting on Sunday he had opted to join the Bundesliga champions ahead of Barcelona.

The United States and Mexico were shocked by news over Landon Donovan ’ s move to Leon with even his old teammates joining in on the reactions . In the last week, Mexico has taken both our youngest & oldest exports.

‘ Mexico has taken our oldest and youngest ’ - Reaction to Donovan ’ s move to Leon . There doesn't seem to be any animosity toward Leon bringing in Donovan , and both sides know he won't come in and take anyone's starting spot .

It seems safe to say Landon Donovan shocked at least the United States and Mexican soccer worlds late Friday night when he announced a sudden end to his retirement.

The former U.S. international last suited up for a brief spell with the LA Galaxy in 2016, but everything looks set for a return to the field with Liga MX side Leon for the 2018 Clausura.

Naturally, this was met with a variety of reactions, from those joking about Donovan’s age, to those noting the political statement he seemed to make. And yes, plenty noted this seemed to be the latest turn in the U.S./Mexico soccer rivalry — especially on the heels of the U.S. losing teenager Jonathan Gonzalez to El Tri earlier in the week.

But Bobby Boswell wasn’t the only pro to have a comment on the situation. Many of Donovan’s old teammates weighed in, including long-time fellow U.S. international DaMarcus Beasley, who also has some experience in La Liga.

Chelsea target Leon Bailey confirms interest in PL move

  Chelsea target Leon Bailey confirms interest in PL move Chelsea are keen to add some attacking talent to their ranks in the January transfer window and in recent weeks the Blues have been linked with a move for Bayer Leverkusen wide man Leon Bailey. Bailey only signed for Leverkusen in the last January transfer window from Genk in a deal worth a reported £12m but has impressed in the Bundesliga in the last 12 months, scoring eight goals and providing four assists in 16 appearances so far this season. The 20-year-old Jamaica international has earned rave reviews this season and is also a reported target for Manchester United and Arsenal, but in an interview with German newspaper Bild, Bailey confirmed his desire to play in the Premier League. “Basically, England was and still is my dream. And if I keep working hard, I’m sure it will work someday.” Both Eden Hazard and Willian have been linked with moves away from Chelsea to Real Madrid and Manchester United respectively, but Antonio Conte wants to add to his attacking contingent at Stamford Bridge and Bailey seems high on their shortlist.
