Tottenham Hotspur Will Be Without A Stadium For 2017/18 – reports

Tottenham Hotspur could find themselves without a ground in 2017/18 after the news was revealed that the White Hart Lane redevelopment is unlikely to be ready for that season, as reported by Tim Nichols of the London Evening Standard.

The situation is so bad that Spurs may even find themselves playing their football at the Stadium:MK, MK Dons’s stadium in Milton Keynes, a stadium a significant distance from their current ground.

The redevelopment was expected to be completed for the beginning of the 2017/2018 season, but it seems that building work has not yet gone to plan, delaying the plans. This represents a five year delay on the original plan to have been able to move into their new stadium for the beginning of 2012/13.

Spurs are planning to knock down White Hart Lane as part of their redevelopment project.

The new stadium is expected to have a capacity of 56,250 fans, with costs of around £400 million to build it.

25-Year-Old Liverpool Star Set For Wage Doubling Contract Bonanza – reports

Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge is set to see his Anfield deal doubled, with the striker set to be offered a bumper new deal to keep him on Merseyside, as reported by the Daily Express.

Sturridge has hit incredible heights since moving to Liverpool from Chelsea in January 2013, despite initial doubts over his signing among football experts.

He has rewarded Brendan Rodgers for his faith and use in his preferred central role by putting away a stunning 35 goals in only a year and a half of football, despite suffering a series of unfortunate knocks.

There are now reports suggesting that the Anfield club are set to double his current wages in order to tie him down to a longer deal, with an increased wage to £140,000 a week for Sturridge seemingly on the cards.

Sturridge suffered an injury on international duty with England, and there will be significant hopes on Merseyside that he can recover swiftly, although the addition of Mario Balotelli towards the end of the window makes that less important.

Man Utd Legend’s Fears Over 28-Year-Old’s Injury Woes

Former Manchester United star and club legend Paul Scholes has expressed his fears over Radamel Falcao’s injury woes, saying that his problematic knee could wind up being a big issue for the Old Trafford club, as reported by the Daily Star.

Falcao was ruled out of this summer’s World Cup after undergoing surgery on a knee injury that he picked up towards the end of last season.

The Colombian striker had damaged an anterior cruciate ligament playing for Monaco, and an ACL injury is a famously difficult problem to return from.

Scholes said: “You just hope his knee is right, I think that will be the main problem.

“But once he gets going and [Angel] Di Maria can start creating chances for him then I’m sure we will start scoring goals.

“I would like to see Di Maria play wide. Whether [Louis] van Gaal is going to play with wide players, I’m not too sure, but we saw the other night that he was devastating for Argentina against Germany in wide areas. Whether it is the right or left-hand side, his pace is frightening.

“He can go past players and score goals. That is something we have been missing. I am sure he can play in the central areas as well, but if I was picking him then it would be in the wide areas.

“Falcao’s goalscoring record is brilliant from when he has been at Porto and Atletico Madrid. The goals he has scored have been important, then there is the movement he brings and his experience as well at 28 years of age.”

There are even those who say that Falcao failed his medical at the Manchester side before the loan deal was confirmed, but the club themselves are insistent that he managed all of the tests without any issues being raised.

Man Utd could turn to Falcao for their game against Queens Park Rangers on Sunday, having not won a single one of their games thus far this season.
