France national team manager Didier Deschamps has claimed that Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud faces the risk of missing out on the national team place ahead of the World Cup 2018.

It became apparent that Giroud would not be the regular first-team player at the club after they brought in Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon for around £ 46 million. However, the Frenchman decided to stay at the club in order to fight for his position and it has so far been the wrong decision.

Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho has revealed that French star Paul Pogba is not completely happy with the role he features in in the national team. The playmaker played a major role in the success of Juventus where he played at for four years, and has been a growing influence at United.

Real Madrid and Paris St Germain are other sides that are keen on breaking the world record for the youngster. They are historically higher spenders but the Gunners want this one badly.

There have been so much noise about Monaco teenager KylianMbappe, especially after his recent showdowns with top sides in the Champions League.

Nicholas Anelka’s past has come hunting in his latest endeavours.

The former Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea striker was appointed as an adviser by Eredivisie outfit Roda JC Kerkrade after a Swiss-Russian takeover was completed.

There were investigations being done in relation to a few managers of English clubs including Southampton, Queens Park Rangers and Barnsley. Many of the head chiefs of these clubs had been involved in some way or another with bribery, avoiding tax and even becoming ambassador for fictitious sports company as a way to earn money in exchange for players.
