    ‘Playing in your home country would be special’ - Dortmund wonderkid Pulisic open to MLS move

    Christian Pulisic says a move to Major League Soccer is not “out of the question” but does not have any plans to join the United States domestic league in the near future. The 18-year-old Borussia Dortmund midfielder has enjoyed a breakthrough campaign with the Bundesliga side, playing in 42 games across all competitions. He has scored five goals, while helping Dortmund reach the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals, finish third in the Bundesliga and have a chance at the DFB-Pokal crown when he and his teammates face Eintracht Frankfurt on May 27. The teenager’s rising stock has seen him draw interest from the likes of Liverpool in the past, but in an interview with the Guardian, Pulisic talked about a potential move to MLS, noting that it would not rule out in the future. Cameron signs Stoke City extension “I’d never put that out of the question,” Pulisic told the Guardian. “Playing in your home country would be special; obviously I don’t have any immediate plans to do that but it’s always an option.” While he is not likely to make an MLS return anytime soon, Pulisic is still complimentary to the league and believes it could be a foundation for the U.S. “You see so many people at the games now and it’s exciting; we have a really strong soccer league we can build on.” Pulisic hopes he can help in that development, as he aims to be an inspiration for young athletes in the U.S. to choose soccer over other sports. That change, Pulisic believes, can help take the U.S. national team to the next level. “It’s been big flaw of ours in the soccer department that a lot of our best athletes go and play other sports,” he said. “But I think young players have seen me, and others, go over to Europe and play in some of the best leagues – and MLS is improving so much too. There’s so much potential and I think it’s changing: we’ve had some bigger athletes in the past but I don’t think that defines us anymore. “We’re going to keep moving forward, developing young players and we’re going to have a really good shot in the next few years.”

    Ronaldo in Portugal's Confederations Cup squad as Sanches misses out

    Cristiano Ronaldo has been named in Portugal's squad for the Confederations Cup, but Renato Sanches misses out on selection. On Thursday, Fernando Santos named the European champions' 24-man group for a friendly with Cyprus, World Cup qualifier against Latvia and the tournament in Russia. Mourinho: I'm a nobody at Man Utd While world champions Germany are resting a host of star names, Real Madrid forward Ronaldo is part of Portugal's plans. Nani, Ricardo Quaresma, Joao Moutinho, Pepe, Bruno Alves and Rui Patricio are also among the experienced players to be called up by Santos. And Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes, Inter's Joao Mario and Monaco star Bernardo Silva are other big names included in a strong squad. However, Bayern Munich midfielder Sanches – Young Player of the Tournament at Euro 2016 – and striker Eder, who scored the winner against France in the final, are left out, with Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes also missing out for personal reasons. It adds to a tough first season in Germany for Sanches, who only started six Bundesliga matches. He will instead play in the European Under-21 championship in Poland. The Confederations Cup begins on June 17, concluding with the final on July 2, with Portugal in Group A alongside hosts Russia, Mexico and New Zealand. Germany are in Group B with Cameroon, Chile and Australia.  Mourinho showing Pep how it's done

    'Messi unstoppable, while Ronaldo has changed for the better' - Boateng names his toughest foes

    Jerome Boateng admits Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are among the toughest opponents he has faced while at Bayern Munich. The World Cup winner has taken on some of the finest talent on the planet while turning out for club and country. Boateng rules out Bayern exit Boateng has held his own at times, but has also been made to look rather foolish – the sight of Messi leaving him on his backside in a Champions League encounter at Camp Nou will live long in the memory. The 28-year-old has, however, always embraced the challenge posed by such foes and admits the desire of said players to continue improving means that defenders can never relax. Asked by Sport Bild to name the best he has faced, Boateng said: “Messi and Ronaldo are the toughest, but I would also place Eden Hazard of Chelsea, Neymar of Barcelona and Karim Benzema of Real Madrid on the list. “Messi simply cannot be stopped by yourself. Ronaldo is easier because he is more about athletic prowess. 'Bayern transfer targets are decided' “But Ronaldo has changed his game. He now focuses less on dribbling and more on the end product. That is more difficult to defend against because he has incredible timing.” Bayern and Boateng felt the full force of Ronaldo once again in the 2016-17 campaign, with the mercurial Portuguese forward netting five times across a two-legged Champions League quarter-final to help Madrid in the defence of their European crown.

Mourinho showing Pep how it's done The Germany international endured a difficult 2016-17 campaign in which he made just 13 Bundesliga appearances, partially due to ongoing injury problems. Recent reports suggested Boateng could be looking to move on following his disappointing season, but the 28-year-old has laughed off suggestions he is on his way out of the Allianz Arena. "My only plan is to stay at Bayern," Boateng told Sport Bild. "There are very few clubs in the world that have the same reputation and tradition that Bayern have. "I did not play as much as I would have liked to, so it is only normal that I am not entirely happy. But I will now use our time off to make sure I am 100 per cent fit again for next season." Boateng has a contract with Bayern until June 2021.

    Bayern Munich rumours are false, says Goretzka

    Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka insists there is no truth in reports suggesting he has reached an agreement with Bayern Munich over a free transfer in 2018. The 22-year-old has repeatedly been linked with a move to the Allianz Arena and it was reported in Germany on Wednesday that the deal will go through once his contract with Schalke expires at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

"I want to give a brief response to the latest reports in the press," Goretzka wrote on his official Facebook account. "There are a lot of rumours, speculation, reports, but I can assure you that they are all false. "I will give you all the facts once a final decision has been made." Goretzka joined Schalke from Bochum in 2013 and has since developed into a key figure at the Veltins Arena. He has made 41 appearances in all competitions this term, scoring eight goals.
