Gaga Slonina: Chelsea FC Targeting Chicago Fire GK, NXGN Award Winner

Had it not been for what is currently going on in the world, and hence as a consequence, what is happening with Chelsea FC, Gaga Slonina might be a part of the Blues organization right now. It was quite surreal to see this month- the Chicago Fire No. 1 and Chicagoland native linked with a move to some of the biggest and brightest clubs. According to reports, originating with the world’s foremost transfer expert, 17-year-old native of Addison, IL was potentially lined up for a transfer to southwest London, but the sanctions against current Owner Roman Abramovich kiboshed any potential deal.

It won’t be long until Gaga Slonina, formally known as Gabriel Slonina, leaves Major League Soccer for a big five league in Europe, so go out and see him play live and in person, at Soldier Field, while you still can.

Mason Greenwood: United Release Statement on Status of Suspended Forward

Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood remains suspended indefinitely by the club. This status has not changed, despite the fact that his profile still appears on the club website. The 20-year-old Englishman was charged with rape and assault in January, but he was soon out on bail. He has been dropped by his sponsors, but with his presence remaining on the club site, supporters have wondered aloud whether or not Greenwood was reinstated.

These inquiries forced to release a statement on the matter. “There has been no change whatsoever in Mason’s status,” it read (h/t The Sun).

Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Leicester City

Manchester United are back in action on Saturday, where they’ll face similarly underachieving Leicester City at Old Trafford. Both of these clubs had eye-catching summer transfer windows, and really splashed the cash. Thus, expectations were quite high for both sides and well, you know how that has worked out this season (read: is has not). The Red Devils have fared quite well in this series as of late, especially at home, and we’re expecting that trend to continue here.

Let’s take a look at who Interim Manager Ralf Rangnick might select in his first team to keep that trend going.

Man United vs Leicester Team News: Vardy, Maguire, Cavani, Albrighton

When Manchester United hosts Leicester City on Saturday it will be a match-up of two sides that have massively disappointed this season. Both were expected to contend for the top four this season, but one of the two (the Foxes) are already out of the running. It doesn’t look good for United either (we evaluated their chances at this link). Both teams could have new managers next season too.

Erik Ten Hag is the leading candidate for the United job, while Mauricio Pochettino and Luis Enrique are in the running too. As for Leicester, Brendan Rodgers could see his time up before too long. While he has won silverware, they just don’t seem to be leveling up under him.

Manchester City Starting XI Prediction at Burnley FC

With one eye on the UEFA Champions League knockout round resumption next week, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola may do a bit of squad rotation when his side visits Burnley FC on Saturday. After all, the Clarets are the penultimate side in the Premier League table right now, and City’s squad rotation still leaves them with a very strong side to put on the pitch. As City continues their quest for another treble, the team they’ll start out with will still be a very strong one for this match.

With Liverpool nipping at their heels, let’s take a look at who Pep Guardiola might call upon in this one.

As the Chicago Bulls begin the final home stretch of their season, with a contest tonight at the Washington Wizards, we took a look at what we could expect from them this postseason, which will mark their first playoff berth in a half-decade. To break it down we enlisted the help of Carlos Boozer, former NBA All-Star and Olympic Gold medalist. Boozer recently became an Ambassador for Points Bet USA, and we caught up with him at Happy Camper Wrigleyville to talk all things balls.

And we do mean all things balls, perhaps you have heard about his new ad campaign for an underwear brand that caters to men who recently had vasectomies? We’ll save that for part two of this exclusive. For now, we’ll focus on NBA basketball. We asked Boozer, who played for the Bulls from 2010-2014, how far Chicago can really go this season and how they can realize their potential.
