Pogba speaks out
The final days of Paul Pogba’s second stint at Manchester United are set to be laid bare in his upcoming Amazon Prime documentary this week.
Released tomorrow, The Pogmentary follows the 29-year-old Frenchman’s final year at Old Trafford, including contract talks that would ultimately end in a parting of ways.
In fresh trailer footage, Pogba is shown in conversation with his late agent Mino Raiola last July, discussing a contract offer from the Red Devils widely reported to be in excess of £300,000-per-week.
Pogba is dismissive of the proposal, saying: "How can you tell a player you absolutely want him [to stay] and then offer him nothing?"
In a later scene, he also adds: "My thought process is to show Manchester [United] that they made a mistake in waiting to give me a contract and to show other clubs that Manchester [United] had made a mistake in not offering me a contract."
The World Cup-winning midfielder is expected to rejoin former club Juventus on a four-year deal.
New Premier League ball
Nike have unveiled their new Premier League ball design to be used during the 2022-23 Premier League campaign.
The Nike Flight takes inspiration from the first Premier League campaign 30 years ago and will be available to purchase from July 15.
LaLiga make Financial Fair Play complaints
LaLiga president Javier Tebas has told UEFA that "state-owned" clubs such as Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain pose a "danger" to the future of European football.
The Spanish top tier have filed an official complaint to the governing body, citing what they believe to be Financial Fair Play breaches by both the English and French champions.
The complaint suggests that two clubs circumvent spending rules by effectively being run by wealthy countries rather than individuals.
Speaking in Amsterdam at a European Leagues meeting, Tebas said: "We are doing it to defend the football eco-system in Europe.
"We think European football is in danger. [We have] not been able to design a system to control the state-owned clubs."
City have already faced controversy regarding their financial state having had a two-year Champions League ban overturned by UEFA in July 2020.
Three to resume Chelsea partnership
Telecommunications company Three have confirmed they will "restart marketing activities" at Chelsea and remain as lead shirt sponsor following the club’s recent takeover.
Their partnership with the Blues was temporarily suspended in March after former owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the UK Government due to alleged links with Russian president Vladimir Putin.
But American businessman Todd Boehly’s consortium finally completed their purchase of the club for £4.25billion last month, meaning the three-year sponsorship agreement can now resume.
A statement from Chelsea’s head of global partnerships, John Rogers, said: "Following the recent pause in their activities, the club are pleased to have resumed our work with Three and we look forward with excitement to the start of the new season, together.
"We would like to thank all club partners for their support now and in the future."
