Balogun eyes early return, Euro giants want Onyekuru

Super Eagles powerful defender Leon Balogun  has hinted he will return from injury earlier than expected after undergoing an operation on his  broken cheek bone.
The  29-year-old German-born  Mainz 05  player  was forced off the field in the 79th minute in his team’s  2-0 defeat  by  Schalke 04 in their  Bundesliga clash at Veltins-Arena in  Gelsenkirchen on Friday  after he was injured.
It was feared that the former Darmstadt 98 star, who played a key role in getting Nigeria through to the 2018 World Cup in Russia, could be out of action for a long time.
The development sent his team  into panic as   the O-Five feared  the centre-back was heading for the sidelines  for a lengthy period, with  the player forced to wear a protective mask as he  did when he suffered a similar injury last year.
“Last year, @LeonBalogun wore a face mask vs. @s04_en. Today (Friday), he had to come off with a suspected cheek bone fracture. Get well soon, Leon,”  Mainz wrote on their Twitter handle.

Roman Abramovich ,Get me Pep Guardiola!

Chelsea are hoping the lure of a London lifestyle could be their trump card as they prepare a massive financial package to beat Manchester City to Pep Guardiola.
Roman Abramovich is refusing to give up on Guardiola - who walked away from a deal to move to Chelsea in 2012 - after he confirmed that he is leaving Bayern Munich.


Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge thinks he knows Pep Guardiola's next club. Rummenigge refused to reveal the identity of the team, despite admitting Guardiola told him two weeks ago that he was leaving, because he believes it is not his place to say. Guardiola has been widely linked with a move to the Premier League with reported interest from both Manchester clubs and Chelsea. "I think I know where he is going," Rummenigge told Bild. "But I want to leave the announcement to him or his new employer. "At the Christmas party two weeks ago he came to me, he told me that he was looking for a new challenge and almost apologised. It was clearly difficult for him, I'm not disappointed in him." Rummenigge decided to instead focus on the talents of Carlo Ancelotti, who will take over at Bayern Munich when Guardiola leaves.

Pep Guardiola to reveal details about his future plans



Bavarians  are unstoppable in the Bundesliga  in recent years, and three points at the weekend will take the club into four figures locally While Pep Guardiola has not quite been able to solve the Champions League puzzle for Bayern Munich, there is no doubt that when it comes to the domestic game, Die Roten are in control.The Bavarians have raced to a brilliant start to the 2015-16 season, winning nine out of nine to jump straight to the summit they occupied almost without challenge in the last campaign.
A win against Koln would make it a perfect 10 - but that is not the only record Pep's men have in view.Three points would also make Bayern the first German team in history to reach the milestone of 1000 Bundesliga victories, an outstanding feat in just the 53rd edition of the competition.
