Bayern chief denies ‘love’ claims

Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has denied ‘falling in love’ with Chelsea ace Callum Hudson-Odoi after failing to sign the winger in January.

“You know the only one I’m in love with is my wife,” the former Bayern Munich midfielder said.

“But I am very, very convinced of the qualities this player has.

“He has a finesse which we need to play good, successful and sometimes even spectacular football.”

His comments were in response to Karl Heinz Rummenigge’s claim that he ‘loved’ the idea of signing the Chelsea ace.

Eden Hazard ‘decision’ made

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has made a decision on his future, according to an interview that will be aired today.

The Belgian star said in a documentary to be aired on Wednesday: “I know what I am going to do. I have made a decision.”

The 28 year old has repeatedly refused to commit himself to a new contract at Chelsea with his current deal running out in 2020.

And Hazard is now expected to move to Real Madrid in the summer.

Koulibaly wants Man Utd move

Kalidou Koulibaly wants to join Manchester United this summer, according to the Evening Standard.

United have made Koulibaly their No 1 defensive target going into the summer window.

And now the Senegal star reportedly wants to join them too.

United were looking at defenders in January but have been forced to wait until the summer with the window shutting.

Salah could leave Liverpool

Mohamed Salah could leave Liverpool if they don’t win the Premier League, according to Emile Heskey.

“There’s always that risk [of players wanting to leave],” Heskey told Express Sport.

Ex-England man Heskey, who played 62 times for his country, thinks that although Salah may be tempted to seek pastures new in order to win a major competition, a big factor in keeping him at Anfield would be their passionate support.

“The relationship between the players and the Liverpool fans is such that they always want to give the league another go,” Heskey claimed.

“I’m not saying that they [Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane] wouldn’t go, but there is plenty of reason for them to stay.”
