UEFA working on a new competition

According to The Guardian, UEFA wants to completely reshape the European Supercup. Currently, it is a summer clash between the winner of the Champions League and the winner of the Europa League. This season it was won by Real Madrid, who easily beat Frankfurt. But in the future, there should be many more teams.

A Final Four format is being considered, with four teams, with semi-finals and a final. A bit like what was done in the Champions League during the covid season, or what was set up in Spain for the local Supercup. However, UEFA wants to open up its borders, since, in addition to the winner of the most prestigious European competition, the winner of the Conference League and the winner of the MLS would also be invited.

Above all, the tournament would be held in the United States, which is why the winner of the American championship would be invited. This would be a way of obtaining new revenue and exporting the competition to a market that is potentially very interesting for UEFA. However, it remains to be seen what the players, who already have to deal with a hectic schedule, will think of this. Let us know your opinion about this project!

Jude Bellingham has chosen his new club

Jude Bellingham, only nineteen years old, will be the next attraction in the transfer market. English giants such as Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool are keen to buy English talent. For their part, Borussia Dortmund seems resigned to the departure of their player. But according to The Athletic, the German club is hoping to recover 150 million euros from the transfer. Another problem is that, according to the Spanish show El Chiringuito, the Englishman is not interested in returning home. His preference would be Real Madrid.

How about the Blues?

Guardiola closes the door…for the moment

Considered one of the biggest talents in the central defender position, Joško Gvardiol has been the target of rumors of sending him to Chelsea this summer. But according to the player, this news was unfounded and he did not pay attention to them :

"I am happy in Leipzig, I still have a lot to learn and work on myself. I have people looking after me, I haven't thought about a transfer. We'll see what happens this winter," 20-year-old Gvardiol told Croatian media Index. hr.

A new club for Tuchel?

Former Chelsea coach might find a new destination pretty quickly. Sport Bild revealed on Wednesday that Tuchel, who is currently still in London, wants to get back to work soon. Moreover, the German media indicates that joining Bayern Munich, where his name has been mentioned recently, would please him a lot.

The German media reports that he would be willing to lower his salary and earn less money than in the Premier League to sit on the Munich bench or another one. The Bavarians, for their part, have not made contact with Tuchel for the time being, as they officially still support Julian Nagelsmann. The Bavarians are keeping the subject of Tuchel off the table to avoid putting pressure on their coach.
