Dutch sensation FW to undergo medical, sign a £60m deal until 2030

 Ineos Group's first signing is expected to be Joshua Zirkji.   "Giroud is set to undergo a medical before completing his move from Bologna to Manchester United," the BBC reported on Wednesday (June 12), citing a £33.7 million ($60 billion) deal. Fabrizio Romano, a journalist familiar with European soccer news, also reported that "Giroud is scheduled to meet with manager Eric ten Haag after the medical. Giroud will sign a 5+1 year contract until 2030. Bologna will receive the transfer fee in three installments." The Dutch international came through the youth ranks at ADO Den Haag, Feyenoord and Bayern Munich U-17s. He played professionally in Munich. He made his debut in 2019 as a substitute in the sixth leg of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage against Tottenham Hotspur. He scored his debut goal against Freiburg in December of the same year. However, he was unable to establish himself in the tough competition for a starting spot. At the time, Munich ha

GK's 'farewell letter' to Anfield after five years at the club

"Once red, always red," Adrian Sanmiguel, 37, has written to fans after leaving Liverpool after five years at the club. The Reds posted the letter on the club's official website on Aug. 8 (KST), along with a video message from Sanmiguel. The post was titled 'Adrian's farewell message to Liverpool supporters'. Sanmiguel is a Spanish goalkeeper born in 1987. He joined West Ham United in 2013 and has been with the club for almost six years. Initially, he was not in the starting lineup. However, he became a regular starter when first-choice keeper Jussi Jaskelainen started to show signs of aging. He was particularly impressive, with 27 goals against in 20 games and 4.4 saves per game. His 2014-15 season was considered one of the best in the Premier League. In February of that year, Adrian's PPI (Player Performance Index), the EPL's proprietary player evaluation system, ranked him second among EPL goalkeepers. Spaniard Thibaut Courtois was first, meaning th

Rojas + Kim Sang-soo 'Combined for 4 Hits and 5 RBIs', Relay Play Perfect

  "Rojas, Kim Sang-soo preserved the win" KT Wiz started their three-game weekend series on a high note with a 5-4 come-from-behind victory over the Lotte Giants in the ninth game of the 2024 Shinhan Bank SOL Bank KBO League at Sajik Stadium in Busan on Wednesday. Despite having 'Lotte Killer' Ko Young-pyo on the mound, the game didn't start well for the Giants. After a shaky start in the first inning that saw the bases loaded, Ko gave up singles to Noh Jin-hyuk and Lee Jung-geun and a walk to Hwang Sung-bin. He then gave up a leadoff double to Ko Seung-min, who was hit by a pitch. In the fourth inning, with the bases loaded, Ko Young-pyo gave up back-to-back singles to Jeon Jun-woo and Victor Reyes to put runners on first and second with no outs. It wasn't until the seventh inning that KT really started to come alive. In the top of the seventh, Kim Min-hyuk reached on an error by Lotte first baseman Na Seung-yup, and the next batter, Hwang Jae-gyun, drew a wa

'HWANG' will play in PL next season...Wolverhampton 'firmly' reject Marseille offer

  Wolverhampton Wanderers have firmly rejected an offer from Olympique de Marseille for Hwang Hee-chan. On December 12 (ET), Sky Sports reporter Riall Thomas said, "Wolverhampton have rejected Marseille's offer for Hwang Hee-chan. Wolverhampton have decided not to sell Hwang Hee-chan. Hwang Hee-chan is Not For Sale (NFS)," the club said. Hwang Hee-chan is a South Korean forward. His trademark is his aggressive dribbling and physicality, reminiscent of a bull. His style of play is similar to Wayne Rooney's during his heyday at Manchester United. Hwang made his European debut in December 2014 when he joined Austria's Red Bull Salzburg. After loan spells at FC Leipzig and Hamburger SV, Hwang established himself in the Salzburg first team before moving to RB Leipzig in 2020, also in the same Red Bull division as Salzburg. However, Hwang was unable to break into the starting lineup at Leipzig. Eventually, he moved to Wolverhampton on loan ahead of the 2021-22 season. H

Benjamin no-hit, Rojas two homers, five-game losing streak snapped

  They lost all week, but not until the final day. After losing three games in a row against the Hanwha Eagles in the middle of the week, KT lost two games in a row against the LG Twins. Despite playing their ace, William Cuevas, the day before, they were once again vulnerable to LG, losing 2-8 and losing five games in a row. They couldn't lose on the 9th. KT started Wes Benjamin, who had a strong showing against LG on that day, while LG used substitute Lee Woo-chan due to an injury to Im Chan-kyu. “When the substitutes come in, we need to score early,” said KT coach Lee Kang-cheol, who paid particular attention to the batting lineup. The batting order was different than usual. Kang Baek-ho was used in right field, while catcher Jang Sung-woo, designated hitter Moon Sang-chul, and first baseman Oh Jae-il were all used in the lineup, creating a batting lineup centered on hitting. The starting lineup was Rojas (left fielder)-Hwang Jae-gyun (third baseman)-Kang Baek-ho (right fielder)

KKKKKKKKKKK Lost by 153 kilometers, bitter after 46 days

  Forty-six days and a bitter taste. Kiwoom Heroes foreign pitcher Enmanuel De Jesus started the 11th game of the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League against the Samsung Lions at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, South Korea, on April 9. In 12 appearances this season, De Jesus had a 7-3 record with a 3.44 ERA. He made one start for Samsung. On May 29 against Daegu, he gave up four runs on six hits, three walks, one home run, and four strikeouts in five innings, but was able to pick up the win with the help of his bats. He is tied for first in wins and sixth in ERA. The first inning was a bit shaky. After giving up a leadoff double to Ryu Ji-hyeok and striking out Lee Sung-kyu, he gave up an RBI single to Koo Ja-ook. He then struck out Park Byung-ho and then tagged out Koo as he attempted to steal to escape further damage. After a three-hit shutout inning in the second, Heisus showed his dominance in the third, striking out Jeon Byung-woo, Kim Jae-hyuk, and Ahn Joo-hyung. His 150-plus-kilomet

“Son Heung-min is very tidy” SON's 'best friend' reveals surprise confession

  They were expected to win the title, but it didn't happen. “Ben Davies has expressed his disappointment with the season in an interview,” said the UK's The Voice Hotspur, which follows Tottenham Hotspur news. “I thought this season was our time,” he told the Business of Sport, “but football is a very difficult industry to win. But football is a very difficult business to win. Spending big money doesn't guarantee results,” he explained. Spurs have a long history of irrelevance. They haven't lifted a single official trophy since winning the English Carling Cup (the predecessor to the Carabao Cup) in 2007-08. Since then, Spurs have risen to the mid-table of the Premier League and invested a lot of money, but still no trophies. Then, this season, it looked like things were really going to happen. New head coach Enze Postecoglou's team went unbeaten in the first 10 games of the season, playing a strong attacking style of soccer. This allowed Tottenham to climb to the t
