Ozil: Arsenal better than last season


Di Maria signing close - Blanc


S.League concern about ASL


Mesut Ozil: Arsenal 'are better than last season' and can improve

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger praised his side's build up to the new season after they claimed the Emirates Cup, but does not appear to be placing too much stake on their recent results.

Mesut Ozil believes Arsenal are better than last season and has set his sights on the Premier League title in his third year at the club.

Ozil, 26, was the only player to start both preseason games over the weekend as Arsenal won the Emirates Cup for the first time in five years.

The Germany midfielder, starting in his favourite position in central midfield, scored one goal in the 6-0 routing of Lyon and also set up two, picking up praise after the tournament.

"I am super happy with the No. 10 position,...

Angel Di Maria signing 'close' - PSG boss Laurent Blanc

Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc expects 'a positive outcome' in the French domestic treble winners' pursuit of Manchester United winger Ángel Di María.
ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti contends that Angel Di Maria is close to a move to PSG.
The ESPN FC crew debate whether or not Sergio Romero will succeed at Manchester United, if United will regret selling Angel Di Maria and more.
Rumours are abound that Angel Di Maria could leave Manchester United for PSG as soon as this week, after the Argentine failed to catch a flight to meet up with his team-mates in San Jose.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc has told media he is "rather positive" Angel Di Maria will soon join the Ligue 1 champions from Manchester United.

Di Maria has remained in Argentina -- rather than team up with United on their preseason tour of north America -- while the deal is being negotiated.

L'Equipe claimed earlier this week that a €63 million (£44.8m) fee has been agreed for the 27-year-old and that his agent, Jorge Mendes, is in talks with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi...

Liverpool must drop Mario Balotelli price for us to bid - Sampdoria chief

Former Liverpool winger Luis Garcia gives his take on Mario Balotelli's situation at Anfield.
Former midfielder Dietmar Hamann shares his expectations for Liverpool this season.

Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has not ruled out moving for Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli this summer, although a big discount would be needed before he would seriously consider a bid.

Balotelli, 24, could be available for a cut-price fee this summer after a disappointing first season at Anfield but Ferrero wants the Italy international for just a fraction of the £16 million the Reds paid AC Milan for him last summer.

Speaking in Milan on Monday as the fixtures for the 2015-16 season...

Jose Mourinho: Radamel Falcao arrival allows Chelsea to play two in attack

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner feels Jose Mourinho's comments are to fire up his players following the continued influx of money being spent by Premier League clubs, but Craig Burley is not surprised that clubs are now "buying titles."
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his Premier League rivals are now the ones attempting to buy their way to glory, a charge that used to levelled at the Blues.
Former Chelsea player and current Wolfsburg forward Andre Schurrle has backed his old club to retain the Premier League title in the coming season.

Jose Mourinho said he is ready to field two strikers at times this season and that all three Chelsea forwards have "special motivations" to show their worth.

Mourinho selected Diego Costa alone in attack last season when the Spain international was fit, with Didier Drogba and Loic Remy deputising in his absence.

With Drogba having departed and Radamel Falcao having arrived on loan, though, Mourinho said he now has more tactical options as he looks to ensure Chelsea are less predictable this season.

Jack Warner's extradition to the United States delayed

Jack Warner continues to fight his extradition to the United States as one of many former FIFA big hitters facing corruption charges.

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad -- A court is giving former FIFA Vice President Jack Warner more time to fight being extradited from Trinidad and Tobago to the United States to face corruption charges.

A chief magistrate on Monday set a new hearing date of Aug. 28 after a government lawyer requested more time to examine the extradition request from the U.S. Justice Department.

The U.S. sent its request last week.

Warner is resisting extradition on U.S. charges of racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering...
