Upd. at 12:51 CET 03/11/2015 The full interview is available in the paper, but here are three interesting quotes from Yansheng: Chen Yansheng, the new owner of Espanyol, spoke exclusively with SPORT after finalising a deal with the Barcelona-based La Liga club on Monday. Lluis Miguelsanz Ambitions: The Champions League? The beauty of football is that anything can happen. If it couldn’t, there would not be so many fans. Let’s see in time, but we are confident our cooperation with Espanyol will go well. Growth: We have a lot of confidence in the sporting future of Espanyol. They’re a great team and they can grow a lot more, for sure. Money: Right now, the main problem is the finances, which we knew from the beginning. But the fans can be calm, we have total security and will be able to resolve it grow together with the club.
The Pericos have now won just once in their last six league games and have seen both Sporting Gijon and Granada take points off them at the Power8 Stadium this season. Sam Marsden They got off to a nightmare start against Levante. Sweeping forward on the break, Felipe Caicedo fed Victor Sanchez, whose far post cross was slid home by Moreno, putting the finishing touch to a fine move. Levante looked most like scoring on the break, but Ruben Garcia wasted their best chances – shooting straight at Pau Lopez on one occasion and failing to find Roger later. A mistake from Enzo Roco allowed the visitors to take the lead through Jefferson Lerma in the sixth minute, with substitute Gerard Moreno netting the equaliser in the second half. The rest of the first passed without much more action, although a blow to Asensio’s head saw him taken off at half-time. Given the impact the enterprising 19-year-old has had so far at the club, Sergio will hope it’s nothing serious. Those games are the ones that Espanyol would have won last season and the ones that could eventually see them slip down the table. Espanyol fans were far from impressed as their side were held to a 1-1 draw by Levante on Monday night at Cornella El-Prat. 07/12/2015 Whistles filled the stadium as the game came to a close, the home supporters far from impressed with what they saw. Hernan Perez, playing on the right wing was a constant source of danger, but clear cut chances were few and far between. As things stand, however, they sit 12th in the table and have a six point cushion, but things can quickly change if they don’t arrest their current slump. It was Asensio’s replacement, though, who levelled things up. A two-goal win over Malaga in their last home game suggested Sergio Gonzalez’s men were back on track, but dropped points against Levante reveal otherwise. Roco gave Lerma a free run on goal and the 21-year-old Colombian displayed a cool head, bearing down on Pau Lopez’s goal and calmly slotting home. Upd. at 22:34 CET Espanyol then dipped off again after having made lively start to the second half. Espanyol were given an immediate chance to equalise when Marco Asensio’s free-kick found Victor Alvarez at the far post, but he midfielder was unable to turn home an easy chance. Sergio’s job is to get things going again after a solid first season in charge – starting away at Celta Vigo next week.
In exchange, Bale’s future at Real Madrid is not as clear, which is the reason Manchester United have re-activated their interest in the Welsh international. They want him to lead their new project, which is likely to be managed by Jose Mourinho. Needing a huge star since the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid in 2009, United are threatening to break the bank when the summer transfer window opens: With Neymar ruled out, they are now thinking of Bale. Manchester United urgently need a signing to excite their fans and to recover their position at the top of English and European football – that’s why they have been in contact with Neymar, as the Brazilian striker and his father have previously revealed. Sport EN CET Neymar’s current release clause is 190 million euros. United would have been ready to pay it initially, but having finally learned of the player’s desire to stay at Barça their interest has at last waned. 24/02/2016 at 22:01 To sign Bale at the moment seems much more attainable than signing Neymar. The 26-year-old forward could leave the Santiago Bernabeu in exchange for around 100 million euros. However, United now realise they must forget the Barcelona star, whose contract renewal with the Catalan club is closer than ever. Therefore, the Premier League club have once again made Gareth Bale their primary objective, according to reports in England.
