Vardy pulls out of England squad due to minor injury



Jamie Vardy has pulled out of England's squad ahead of their upcoming international double header after sustaining an injury during training.

The Leicester City striker picked up a minor knock but has left the Three Lions' training base as a precaution.England take on Scotland in a World Cup qualifier on Saturday before facing France in a friendly on Tuesday.

Gareth Southgate's men have no plans to call up a replacement for Vardy as of yet, according to a statement on the FA's website.The statement read: “Jamie Vardy has left the England squad as a precaution after picking up a minor injury in training at St. George's Park yesterday.

“The Leicester City striker won't play a part in either Saturday's World Cup qualifier in Scotland or Tuesday's trip to France. “No further players are due to be added to the squad at this moment in time.”

England boss Southgate has Harry Kane, Jermain Defoe and Marcus Rashford to choose from when picking his forward line for the two games, while Jesse Lingard can also operate up front.

Vardy has featured twice for England in 2017, scoring last time out as Southgate's side defeated Lithuania 2-0 in a World Cup qualifier in March at Wembley Stadium.

England head into their games against Scotland and France on the back of just one defeat in their last seven matches following their last-16 exit at Euro 2016.

Jardim extends contract with Ligue 1 champions Monaco until 2020



Leonardo Jardim has extended his contract with Monaco until 2020, the Ligue 1 champions have confirmed.Jardim, 42, has seen his stock rise significantly after guiding the club to the French league title during the 2016-17 campaign — Monaco's first top-flight championship in 17 years.

There had been speculation on Tuesday that the Venezuelan — regarded as one of Europe's most promising young coaches — was set to move to the Chinese Super League, per Portuguese outlet A Bola.

However, Jardim has since put pen to paper on fresh terms with Monaco as they look to hold on to their prized assets after a remarkable 2016-17 campaign."The confidence the club has shown in me has always been essential to me," he told Monaco's official website."I feel part of AS Monaco and of the principality. I'm therefore very happy to continue my work at AS Monaco.

"The last three seasons have been exceptional, crowned by the title of champions of France in May. We will therefore work with the same ambition to continue this project and continue to grow this club with the same passion that has inspired us from the beginning.

"I'm certain that the future looks very exciting at Monaco."Bernando Silva has already left Monaco to join Manchester City, while Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Lemar, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Benjamin Mendy have all been linked with big-money moves away.

But Monaco have managed to retain the services of key striker Radamel Falcao — who signed a new contract last week — while Jardim's extension will also provide a huge boost for the club.

Monaco established themselves as one of the most exciting sides in Europe after scoring 107 goals in 38 Ligue 1 games to pip Paris Saint-Germain to the league title.

Jardim's charges also reached the semi-finals of the Champions League, downing Man City and Borussia Dortmund in the knockout stages before losing to Juventus in the last four.

Monaco were beaten by rivals PSG in the Coupe de la Ligue final while Unai Emery's outfit also got the better of Jardim's side in the Coupe de France semi-finals.

Cristiano Ronaldo tops the world's highest-paid athletes in 2017



Cristiano Ronaldo is the world's highest-paid athlete for the second straight year, according to Forbes.The Real Madrid forward earned $93 million — including $58m in salary and bonuses and $35m in endorsements — over the past 12 months to retain the title.

Ronaldo ranks above NBA superstar LeBron James ($86.2m) and Barcelona's Lionel Messi ($80m) in the top three of the annual list produced by the American publication.

Rounding out the top five are tennis great Roger Federer and basketball star Kevin Durant. The top five remained the same from last year with only James and Messi swapping places.Other footballers who made it into the top 50 are Neymar (18), Gareth Bale (24) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (30).

The honour of being named the world's richest athlete comes as no surprise for Ronaldo, whose 121 million Facebook fans are more than any other person in the world.

On the field, he recently led Real Madrid to their second straight Champions League title, was named FIFA's player of the year for the fourth time and scored his 600th career goal.

Ronaldo is also set to be toward the top of the Forbes list for the foreseeable future after securing a contract extension with Los Blancos that will pay more than $50 million annually for the next four years.

Donnarumma shortlisted as Navas successor as Madrid drop interest in De Gea



Real Madrid have shortlisted AC Milan shot-stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma as a possible replacement for Keylor Navas, but Los Blancos are keeping faith with the Central American for now and have also ended their interested in signing Manchester United's David De Gea.

Navas came under fire from the Madrid media following a number of mistakes earlier on in the season and the club were set on signing a replacement in the summer as their transfer ban was reduced to six months.However, the Costa Rica international ended the campaign in fine form and made a key save from Miralem Pjanic in the Champions League final win over Juventus.

Keylor is a popular player in the dressing room at Madrid and he has received support from some of his team-mates, most notably captain Sergio Ramos, with some of them reportedly asking the club to keep faith in the 30-year-old.

Madrid have wanted to sign De Gea for several seasons and almost sent Navas to Manchester United as part of the planned transfer in 2015, but the paperwork did not go through in time and the Spain goalkeeper ended up signing a new long-term contract at Old Trafford.

A move for De Gea now would cost somewhere in the region of €70 million as United have no need to sell and the player is also happy in Manchester. Madrid have other priorities in the transfer market anyway, with Monaco's in-demand striker Kylian Mbappe their top target.

Next summer, however, could see a move for either De Gea or Milan's Donnarumma, who is out of contract in 2018 and currently stalling on a new deal due to the demands of his agent, Mino Raiola.

Donnarruma has been offered €4.5m per year to stay, which would make him better paid than most goalkeepers in Europe including Gianluigi Buffon, but Raiola - whose cousin Vincenzo is one of the player's best friends - wants Milan to prove their project will be competitive and, above all, that the club hand his client a relatively low release clause in the region of €50m.

The Rossoneri are losing patience with their player - and especially with Raiola - as the saga drags on and have told the goalkeeper he must respond to their offer by the middle of this month in order to prepare for the 2017-18 campaign.

Milan have insisted that they see Donnarumma as a cornerstone of their new project after the recent takeover, but will not allow the player's contract to run down and he will be sold this summer unless an agreement can be reached.

Meanwhile, Madrid are watching developments closely and see the Italian as a potential number one for the future at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, president Florentino Perez prefers to sign stars when they are the finished article and Los Blancos' status as Europe's best club means they have no need to risk an 18-year-old in goal at this stage - especially with Navas back on form.

A move to Real could happen in future and Madrid are one of the few clubs - along with United - that Donnarumma would consider. At the moment, however, the player should still reach an agreement to stay at San Siro beyond next summer and there looks set to be no new goalkeeper arrival at the Bernabeu this summer, either.

Liverpool end interest in Van Dijk after Southampton row



Liverpool have pulled out of the race to sign Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk after a row with their Premier League rivals.Reports earlier in the week claimed the Saints were threatening action over the Reds's pursuit of their player as they felt an illegal approach had been made.

It was claimed the Netherlands international had told Liverpool he wanted to join them without the clubs having opened negotiations regarding any transfer.In a statement on their website, Liverpool apologised for any misunderstanding and confirmed they would no longer look to sign Van Dijk this summer.

"Liverpool Football Club would like to put on record our regret over recent media speculation regarding Southampton Football Club and player transfers between the two clubs," it read.
"We apologise to the owner, board of directors and fans of Southampton for any misunderstanding regarding Virgil van Dijk."We respect Southampton's position and can confirm we have ended any interest in the player."

Van Dijk has been the subject of intense transfer speculation for a number of months after impressing for Southampton since his arrival in the summer of 2015.
Chelsea have been following his progress while he remains on Manchester City's radar, though a big money move for Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe could put any move to the Etihad Stadium on hold for the time being.

Italy 3 Uruguay 0: Hapless Gimenez hands Azzurri victory



Jose Gimenez's stunning own goal, Eder's late strike and a Daniele De Rossi penalty in injury time ensured Italy extended their unbeaten streak to nine games under Giampiero Ventura with a 3-0 victory over Uruguay.

Atletico Madrid defender Gimenez had a night to forget, inadvertently firing a crisp volley beyond Fernando Muslera with only seven minutes on the clock in Nice.

Italy's win was confirmed when Eder bundled home Manolo Gabbiadini's late cross, but there was still time for Gimenez to bring down Stephan El Shaarawy in added time, Roma stalwart De Rossi stroking home from 12 yards to add gloss to the scoreline.

Ciro Immobile and Andrea Belotti both had chances to extend Italy's lead before the break but were wasteful, while Gianluigi Donnarumma was barely tested in the Azzurri goal.

As the hour approached the young AC Milan keeper was beaten by Martin Caceres, only for Uruguay to see the goal ruled out for a foul.Substitute Eder should have extended Italy's lead with a free header but he atoned for his error in the closing minutes, before Gimenez capped off his sorry showing.

Italy's thoughts now turn to their World Cup qualifier with Liechtenstein on Sunday, while Uruguay return home after successive defeats on their European trip.

In a half-full Allianz Riviera, it was Italy who looked brighter early on and they were gifted the game's opening goal on seven minutes by Gimenez.

A long ball from Lorenzo Insigne was beautiful controlled on the chest by Belotti, but before he had time to turn and shoot, Gimenez had volleyed the ball into his own goal as he attempted to clear the danger.With their tails up, Italy pushed for a second, but found Muslera in fine form, the former Lazio goalkeeper denying Belotti and Insigne in quick succession.

Ventura was forced into a change after 18 minutes as Claudio Marchisio's international return came to an abrupt end, the midfielder limping off to be replaced by Riccardo Montolivo.

Uruguay captain Maxi Pereira gave Donnarumma something to do with a shot that flashed wide, before Insigne and Immobile both wasted good chances for the designated home side.

Immobile thought he should have had a penalty in the closing minutes of the half when he was barged over by two defenders, but his claims were waved away, much to his frustration.

After a cagey start to the second period Uruguay finally threatened the Italy goal as Caceres rose to meet Urreta's free-kick on the hour.Caceres climbed highest before heading beyond Donnarumma's out-reached arm but was denied an equaliser after being penalised for a foul on Montolivo.

Italy should have wrapped things up with 15 minutes to play when Leonardo Spinazzola found Eder unmarked at the back post, but the sub inexplicably headed wide.Eder atoned for his miss with eight minutes remaining as he diverted Gabbiadini's cross home, and De Rossi added gloss to the win in stoppage time.

Substitute El Shaarawy was hauled down by the luckless Gimenez in the penalty area and De Rossi made no mistake from 12 yards to complete the win.
