      What now for Wayne Rooney?

      One goal away from breaking Sir Bobby Charlton’s 249 official goals for Manchester United and Wayne Rooney finds himself in a peculiar position.

      La Liga Leaks: Sampaoli ‘committed to Sevilla’, 'N’Zonzi replacement' already lined up

      Jorge Sampaoli knows he is the man of the moment in world football, with his name linked to various top jobs both in Spain and abroad, but the man himself refuses to get carried away with the fanfare surrounding his time at Sevilla. “To be the fashionable name [in football] can end quickly and tomorrow another coach will take his place. Sampaoli has found himself near the top of the lists for Barcelona, dependent on Luis Enrique’s future, as well as the Argentina job, one which he turned down in the summer.  All of the previous comments came from his press conference ahead of Sevilla’s match with Osasuna on Sunday. Monchi, another man of the moment, has been speaking about Steven N’Zonzi’s future in an interview with ‘Radio MARCA’. “N’Zonzi’s renewal is moving along, little by little, there’s work to be done but we hope it’ll reach a positive conclusion.  I think he could still bring even more to the team.” The former Stoke man himself is wanted by sides in England, Spain and Italy.
