Chelsea's Emma Hayes hails extra WSL place in Women's Champions League
Manchester City have been given a boost with the news that their Champions League home tie against Borussia Monchengladbach will remain at the Etihad. The first leg of the last-16 tie was played in Budapest last week because of Covid-19 restrictions affecting travel between Germany and England. There are different regional restrictions affecting Leipzig, in the state of Saxony, to Monchengladbach in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Chelsea and Manchester United will go head-to-head for Erling Braut Haaland this summer. The race for the 20-year-old is only intensified by a buyout clause in his Borussia Dortmund contract set at around £65million and reportedly active in 2022. The insistence on a release clause terrified United during negotiations with his agent Mino Raiola in 2019, with Old Trafford’s hierarchy concerned they would have no control over the player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer nurtured at Molde and believed could spearhead a daunting attack along with Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and another target in Jadon Sancho.
