Just in case you do not keep up with all things futbol/soccer, here is all you need to know in just one article.
Cristiano Ronaldo wants out
Ever since news of Ronald wanting out of Man U. suitors have been flocking from left to right just to obtain the 37 year old soccer star. “He told the club hierarchy earlier this month that he wants to leave in pursuit of Champions League football, though he has not yet spoken to his new manager about his future,” according to CBSsports. Due to personal reasons, CR will not partake in the first preseason game against Liverpool. IF- and I mean a strong if Man U. were to trade Cristiano, then their next step would be to acquire Paulo Dybala in substitute of the star. Where will Ronaldo go, stay tuned for updates.

Raheem Sterling on the rise
Raheem Sterling, futbol player who is now returning back to play for Chelsea, is expected to be the highest paid Chelsea player since Messi. The deal has been finalized in which the 27 year old has transferred from Manchester United to Chelsea for £47.5m ( approx. $56 mill in USD.) At just 27 years of age, Sterling has a combined 186 goals and assists, just short of Messi who has a combined total of 291. The future is bright for Sterling and maybe one day we can bear witness to him surpassing Messi.

I figured this would be said about Frenkie De Jong’s situation but he’s a professional athlete who gets paid millions.
Frenkie De Jong of Barcelona transfer saga is crazy . It is reported that Barcelona owes up € 20 mil. in wages to De Jong . “Furthermore, De Jong has seen his annual wage decreased due to the impact COVID-19. The report from Marca reveals that de Jong received €12.32 million in fixed salary instead of €14 million due to the club enforcing a 12% pay cut on all first-team players”.
🚨 Frenkie De Jong's priority is to stay at Barcelona this summer. He loves the club. However, he doesn't want to reduce his salary and Barça have made it clear he has to if he wants to stay.

Barac President Laporta has stated that they do not intend on trading Frenkie De Jong, “ Frenkie de Jong is a Barcelona player – we don’t want to sell him unless we have no other choice”.
The deal with Manchester United has been delayed for quite some time as a result of the loss in wages.
