For the last two months, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reportedly been on the verge of joining Major League Soccer. For the last two months, he has not. However, with less than four months remaining on his Manchester United contract and with Jose Mourinho more than obliging with regards to letting the Swede go, it’s only a matter of time until we see Ibrahimovic in MLS (the Los Angeles Galaxy being the ultimate destination).
In an absurd twist of events with zero foundation in practicality, Floyd Mayweather was recently asked by British tabloid the Sunday Daily Star whether he’d ever consider investing in an English football club, and, given the fact that Mike Ashley publicly put Newcastle United up for sale last year, what about the Tyneside-based team in particular?
Everyone in Liverpool )well, the red part) loves Mohamed Salah. The smiley, goal-scoring Egyptian wonderboy has quickly become both a fan-favorite and a menace to society at the same time. His performance against Watford, four goals, an assist and the mercy-killing of Miguel Britos, is just the latest incredible feat in a season full of incredible feats.
Liverpool crushed Watford 5-0 on Saturday with Mohamed Salah leading the way with four goals and an assist for the Reds. Salah’s goals brought him to the top of the charts in both the Premier League and European Golden Boot races with 28 domestic strikes.
It’s ridiculously absurd, but Salah is now averaging MORE than a goal per game in the Premier League. On average, it’s taking the Egyptian only 85 minutes per goal in the EPL — a statistic that’s frankly implausible.
On Tuesday, Manchester United were scraped off the Champions League roster the same way a disgruntled toddler tosses away an old, broken toy: with no remorse. The toy, like the Red Devils, deserved it. The toddler, you wonder? Jose Mourinho.

The choice is yours. and these are our choices for some players to transfer for:
Callum Wilson (Bournemouth):
Consider it karma for Jose Mourinho. The Special One used boring tactics to beat Liverpool on Saturday and tried similarly cynical tactics on Tuesday for Manchester United vs Sevilla. This time, the result was a stunning 2-1 defeat, the Red Devils going out in the Champions League Round of 16.
