    MANCHESTER UNITED defender Eric Bailly believes the Red Devils only want him to sign a new contract so they can receive a larger transfer fee this summer. Bailly, who arrived at Old Trafford in 2016, has 15 months left on his current deal at the club. 3Bailly reportedly feels Man Utd are preparing to sell him this summerCredit: Getty And while negotiations have been making progress over the possibility of a new contract, the Ivorian international is sceptical about the reasons for the club wanting to extend his deal. A friend of the defender told Sky Sports: "Eric loves the club and the fans, his family are settled in Manchester and he'd like nothing more than to spend the rest of his career at Old Trafford.

    RAPHAEL VARANE is reportedly considering his Real Madrid future amid rumours of a move to Manchester United. The Red Devils are keen to strengthen their defence this summer by landing a big name to partner Harry Maguire. 3Raphael Varane could be on the move this summerCredit: Getty Images - Getty Kalidou Koulibaly and Jules Kounde are just two of several names linked to the club but Varane is thought to be the number one target.

    Jury selection delayed in Chauvin trial; additional murder charge is pending As Crime Rises, N.Y. Prosecutor Candidates Vow to Rein In Office Victor Oladipo is set to become a free agent after the season, and it seems highly unlikely that he will re-sign with the Rockets. That is why it would make sense for Houston to trade him, and at least one team has reportedly expressed interest. © Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Victor Oladipo's scoring efficiency is down this season but he’s averaging 20.0 points per game on a bad team. The Golden State Warriors have interest in acquiring Oladipo, according to Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer. The 28-year-old could provide the Warriors with much-needed wing depth, and he should not be that expensive considering that he is playing on an expiring contract and will soon be an unrestricted free agent. The Warriors have the ability to deal up...
    Mets: Francisco Lindor extension talks expected to begin “in earnest” this week By: Andres Chavez March 8, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditWith three major stars hitting free agency after the 2021 season, the New York Mets have some work to do if they want to build a sustainable winner for 2022 and beyond. Shortstop Francisco Lindor, pitcher Noah Syndergaard, and outfielder Michael Conforto are all playing the last year of their respective deals, and are expected to test the market in October unless they reach an agreement to stay in Queens long-term. Of the three, perhaps Lindor should be the number one priority given that he came via trade just a few weeks ago and the Mets would want to justify the assets that they gave away and sign him to a blockbuster deal to make the All-Star shortstop the face of the franchise for years...
    GARY CAHILL is “totally relaxed” about his future at Crystal Palace despite his contract expiring in the summer - and has no plans to retire.

    New York Giants want to restructure Nate Solder’s deal this season By: Cay North February 27, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditNew York Giants left tackle Nate Solder has one of the worst contracts in the NFL. The Giants seemingly gave him this big payday right before Solder would suffer a drop off in performance after leaving New England, and once again, it looks like the Patriots organization moved on from a player just in time to avoid suffering the effects of that fall. The Giants, on the other hand, aren’t so lucky due to signing Solder to a deal worth $62 million. Understandably, it looks like the Giants want to backtrack on that deal. According to Ian Rapoport, the organization wants to restructure the large deal to more favorable terms. The #Giants are expected to approach Nate Solder about restructuring his contract. That will...
    After suffering a season-ending injury, is Bud Dupree looking for a new deal or a prove-it one? Remember Jadeveon Clowney? Remember how at one point, we thought he’d get paid top-five pass-rusher money? Dupree’s injury likely sets him up for a “prove-it deal” instead of top pay. While his salary still could be roughly $12-15 million, it’ll only be for one season. And if he can’t produce similar numbers in 2021, that price will diminish in 2022. Dupree could have entered free agency as the top pass rusher available if healthy. Now, he’ll have to hope his production wasn’t based on scheme fit, but rather pure talent for a bigger payday in the future. Next: Mitchell Schwartz gives encouraging update about offseason  
    Russell Wilson may have a new team come the start of the 2021 season, but it will come at a heavy price for any team thinking about upgrading their quarterback position. Trade rumors have begun to swirl around Wilson in the last few weeks. The NFL has already seen three quarterbacks switch teams since the regular season ended: Matthew Stafford went to the Los Angeles Rams, Jared Goff was shipped to the Detroit Lions and Carson Wentz was traded to the Indianapolis Colts. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Each trade included a swath of draft picks, which is what the Seattle Seahawks are reportedly hoping to get in any deal involving Wilson.

    CHELSEA have 'contacted' Bayern Munich regarding a summer deal for Niklas Sule, according to reports. The Blues are after a new defender in the summer, as boss Thomas Tuchel aims to strengthen his back line. 3Niklas Sule has made 25 appearance for Bayern Munich this termCredit: Getty Images - Getty Sule, 25, has under 18 months remaining on his Bayern contract. And due to financial restraints brought about by the pandemic, the burly German centre-back could be sacrificed at the end of the season. According to Todo Fichajes, Tuchel is keen on acquiring his compatriot, and the Blues could shell out £26million for his signature. They also claim that while boss Hansi Flick is 'reluctant' to sell Sule, other people within the club are 'not satisfied' with his 'attitude'. Chairman and club legend Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, however, isn't one of them - and recently opened the door to handing Sule a...

The AFC playoff picture will always start with them since they are the top team in conference. Is it because of Patrick Mahomes? Perhaps. It’s also due to the talent that remains on the roster. This offseason though. Brett Veach is going to have to make some tough cuts to free up over $18 million in cap space for the 2021 season. It’s safe to say that now comes time for the budget contracts over the lucrative deals. The Chiefs will still be the front-runners for the AFC West title. The conference title remains to be seen, albeit it’s hard to imagine them not still controlling their...

    US coronavirus: Vaccination plan not working, former FDA official warns How the military could bring retirees back to face charges after the Capitol riot James Harden trade unlikely to happen this season? James Harden put himself at the center of NBA rumors this offseason by asking for a trade. Now, following weeks of speculation and offers made, the former NBA MVP could be staying with the Houston Rockets. © Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports The drama surrounding one of the NBA’s biggest stars kicked off in November, when he reportedly turned down a record-breaking contract extension and requested a trade. Teams like the Brooklyn Nets, Miami Heat and Philadephia 76ers immediately emerged as landing spots. With more clubs getting involved and tension building in Houston, a trade felt inevitable.

    Yankees News/Rumors: One major reason Brian Cashman is being forced to lay low this offseason By: Alexander Wilson December 30, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees are in a bit of a pickle, as general manager, Brian Cashman does not have the financial flexibility to attack free agency this off-season. With DJ LeMahieu remaining the priority, Cashman is waiting to see if other clubs are willing to offer him more money. If he does not draw any interest above their price range, the Yankees will force LeMahieu‘s representatives to compromise on a more cost-efficient deal. In addition, they are already on the hook for multiple big contracts, including Gerrit Cole and Giancarlo Stanton. Keeping the years down on DJs deal is essential, as he’s getting up there in age, and the Yankees want to ensure they have flexibility in the future. Of course, starting...

    As the Cleveland Indians seem set to trade Francisco Lindor this offseason, could the St. Louis Cardinals make a good enough offer to get him? A four-time All-Star and a two-time Gold Glover before his 27th birthday, Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor is one of the best players in baseball. He is also headed for free agency after the 2021 season, and Indians owner Paul Dolan got way ahead of things back in March of 2019. “Enjoy him,” Dolan told Indians fans. “We control him for three more years. Enjoy him and then we’ll see what happens.” If 2020 were a normal season, Lindor would have made $17.5 million on one-year deal. In his last year of arbitration eligibility, even in a suppressed economic situation for baseball, a push toward $20 million for 2021 feels certain. MLB Trade Rumors has projected Lindor to make between $17.5 and $21.5 million next season....
    The King has a new throne. Henrik Lundqvist posted a photo to Twitter Sunday afternoon of him sitting inside his new cubby in the Capitals locker room, captioning it as, “New surroundings.” Just above the veteran netminder is his new name plate, with his last name printed next to the Caps logo as well as his new number: 35. The 38-year-old Lundqvist was bought out by the Rangers at the end of September, parting ways with the organization he played with for 15 years. The Rangers opened up $3 million in cap space for 2020-21 by buying out the final season of his seven-year deal with the franchise that began in 2014-15. The buyout, however, will add $1.5 million in dead space for the 2021-22 season. The Capitals signed Lundqvist to a one-year, $1.5 million deal as the free agency window opened on Oct. 9. After former Caps...
    Derrick Rose might get traded to the Lakers this offseason After LeBron James helped a future Hall of Famer in Dwight Howard get his first ring as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, there is some optimism that the next veteran to link up with LeBron in pursuit of a title is Detroit Pistons point guard Derrick Rose. While it would take some wheeling and dealing from both sides to get a deal done, there is some legitimate momentum towards making a deal happen. According to the latest buzz, a trade that would send Rose to the purple and gold is looking more likely this offseason. The Lakers wanted to deal for him last year, but they decided against it as they anticipated he would be bought out. However, Rose stayed in Detroit, and the Lakers were left empty-handed. A potential D-Rose trade to the Lakers is “much more...
    Despite successfully bringing home the Larry O’Brien Trophy in the 2019-20 NBA season, the Los Angeles Lakers are still expected to be aggressive on the market this fall. As other title contenders continue to find ways to upgrade their roster, the Lakers would be needing to address some of the issues on their team in order to have a better chance of defending their throne next year. One of the players that are being heavily linked to the Lakers is veteran point guard Chris Paul of the Oklahoma City Thunder. With his relationship with LeBron James and impressive performance last season, there’s really a huge possibility that the Lakers would try to bring CP3 to Los Angeles in the 2020 offseason. Some league executives who spoke to Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report believes that Paul is the final piece to “LeBron’s Laker dynasty puzzle.” However, though it wouldn’t require them...
    As the Yankees head into another long offseason following their ALDS elimination, they’ll once again be looking how to win in October, especially after being knocked about by the Rays and their miniscule payroll. Instead of facing off against the Astros in the ALCS for the third time in four years, the Yankees’ focus turns to 2021, and though this past season will always be looked at amid the backdrop of the impact of COVID-19, the reality is another disappointing end to a season that began with championship aspirations. As Gerrit Cole said after his first season in pinstripes ended late Friday night when asked about what changes needed to be made moving forward, “We didn’t reach the goal, so across the board, we need to improve.” Here are several areas general manager Brian Cashman and his front office will need to address during the coming weeks: Gary...

    With the massive improvement shown by the face of the franchise, Trae Young, in the 2019-20 NBA season, the Atlanta Hawks may finally consider speeding up their rebuilding plans this fall. Instead of focusing on the development of their core and adding more young and promising talents to their roster, the Hawks could start building a title-contending team around Young. One of the most intriguing trade targets for the Hawks in the 2020 offseason is reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks currently haven’t shown any single indication that they are planning to make Antetokounmpo available on the market, but if they fail to convince him to sign a massive contract extension, they could at least listen to trade offers for him this fall. Once the “Greek Freak” becomes available on the trading block, Greg Swartz of Bleacher Report believes that the Hawks are one of the...

    Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers, Los Angeles Chargers. (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images) Cam Newton was not born with enough middle fingers, and his contract proves he’s looking to add a few more in New England.  The longest-running subplot in the NFL is the New England Patriots’ ability to consistently get one over on the league. Whether it’s SpyGate barely putting a dent in the dynasty, Bill Belichick finding new and innovative ways to Galaxy Brain his way to countless Super Bowls, or now the slick move of swapping out an aged Tom Brady with a hungry Cam Newton. If Patriots fans thought Newton coming to New England couldn’t get any sweeter, the details of his contract prove that Belichick has once again pulled off an evil genius move. The details have been officially announced and the Patriots just notched their first big win of the 2020 season. Newton is essentially...
    Cam Newton (Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images) Cam Newton is officially a member of the New England Patriots. How will the 2020 season potentially play out in Foxborough?The wait is over for Cam Newton, as he’s officially inked a one-year deal with the Patriots, just as many football fans anticipated when the offseason got underway back in February. Not many people thought it’d take this long for Newton to find a new home, but the COVID-19 pandemic has shaken everything up. Newton spent nine years with the Carolina Panthers after they made him the first overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. He led them to a Super Bowl in the 2015 season after going 15-1 and they fell just short of winning it all that season, but Newton won MVP. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been the same since that Super Bowl winning season and injuries paved the way for...
    So Nils Lundkvist, the righty defenseman selected 28th-overall in the 2018 entry draft, won’t be available to the Rangers until either after Lulea ends its season in the Swedish League or the 2021 World Championships are completed if the 19-year-old is reserved for Team Sweden’s roster. That is because Lundkvist, whose entry-level contract signing with the Blueshirts had been anticipated, instead signed a one-year extension to remain with Lulea on Saturday, perhaps influenced to a certain degree by uncertainty in the U.S. created by the pandemic. Lundkvist had been expected to line up fourth on the Blueshirts’ depth chart behind Jacob Trouba, Adam Fox and Tony DeAngelo, assuming that DeAngelo — who will be a restricted free agent with arbitration rights this offseason — is not dealt. The contract certainly could have included an assignment clause under which Lundkvist would have been loaned to Lulea rather than sent to AHL...

    MLB and the players association are at the 1-yard line. So why do I see Malcolm Butler stepping in front of a Russell Wilson pass? Because this is MLB. Because this is the players association. They tend to cooperate like oil and water. The Hatfields and McCoys were pals by comparison.
