De Gea mounts Pressure on Manchester United to sell him to PSG

DAVID DE GEA has turned down Manchester United’s final contract offer.
The keeper made it clear he is not extending his deal beyond next season, piling pressure on Old Trafford chiefs to sell him this summer.

PSG are planning a £60million bid in the current window — or may opt to sign the 28-year-old on a free in a year.
De Gea’s stance is a massive blow to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s re- building job at United.
The Spanish star was the club’s Player of the Year in four of the past six seasons, but  his form dipped this term amid uncertainty over his future.

Man City on the edge of being banned from Champions League Participation for breaking FFP rules

FIFTH place in the Premier League is likely to seal a place in the Champions League next season if Man City are hit with a European ban.

City are fighting a Uefa charge for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations with the governing body recommending they are hit a with a suspension.
But the governing body have confirmed that four places in Europe's top competition will still be on offer to English clubs no matter what happens with City.
So if Pep Guardiola's side are barred from taking part in the 2020-21 season, the Premier League will still have a quartet in the competition.
And that means the battle for fifth place in the domestic game next season will likely see qualification for the Champions League.

Champions League adopts 9 new rules for next season

A HOST of football law changes are set to be brought into the Champions League next season - including 12 subs, no drop balls and an overhaul of handball decisions.
The new Laws were adopted by the International FA Board, comprised of the four Home Nations and four representatives from Fifa, in Aberdeen in March.

Vibesngists Blog runs you through what you will see in the next campaign - and what you won’t. And one rule will even be on show at this year's final on June 1 when Liverpool take on Spurs.

1. Attacking players can no longer infiltrate defensive walls of three or more players at free-kicks. Instead, the attacking side must be at least one metre away from the wall or concede an indirect free-kick.

2. Goal kicks and free-kicks inside your own box no longer have to leave the penalty area to be “in play” although the other side are not allowed inside the area until the ball has been made live.

3. Drop balls can now be given straight to the goalkeeper if play was stopped inside the box. Outside the box, the ball will be dropped for the team that last touched it and all other players from both teams must be four metres away.
