    MANCHESTER UNITED still have five of the world's top 100 most valuable players despite a shambolic campaign...one more than the four in Arsenal's squad. The Red Devils endured a thoroughly disappointing 2021/22 season, finishing sixth in the Premier League table - 11 points behind Arsenal. 1The top five most valuable players in Man Utd's squad They also failed to secure any silverware, meaning it is now five years since their last trophy. However, they still have a plethora of individual talent in their squad.

    MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly considering a swoop for Raphinha with Leeds bracing themselves to lose up to five stars if they are relegated. The Elland Road outfit know they have to secure a better result than Burnley on Sunday in order to survive in the Premier League. And ahead of their final day trip to Brentford on Sunday, boss Jesse Marsch has admitted his fear that the squad could be broken up if they suffer relegation to the Championship. England midfielder Kalvin Phillips, former Man United forward Jack Harrison, goalkeeper Illan Meslier and striker Patrick Bamford are all expected to attract offers should they fail to beat the drop.

    THE mass Liverpool four-man walk-on at Nottingham Forest was Jurgen Klopp’s latest statement that the substitution rules should be updated. The German manager is practically evangelical in his demand that England should follow the continent and the FA Cup and allow five substitutes in league matches. 2Jurgen Klopp showed why he is a huge fan of bringing in five subs for Prem games with a successful four-player change against Forest in the FA CupCredit: PA 2NINTCHDBPICT000720601987Credit: Rex Whether or not he did his cause a favour will be decided by the Premier League quite soon. We have voted on increasing to five subs three times. Each time it was rejected, mainly because the rule change was proposed after the season had started and a radical change halfway through a season is never a good idea. For some clubs, there are other reasons to vote against it.

    PREMIER League ace Yves Bissouma today had his bail extended for another five weeks following his dramatic nightclub arrest.

    LIONEL MESSI looks set to stay at Barcelona after reportedly agreeing to slash his current wage in half. The Catalan giants have convinced the Argentine to stay at the Nou Camp after offering him a reduced salary of a measly £1.2million-a-week. 3 Even with his cut in salary, the 34-year-old still comfortably remains the best-paid player in the world. Barcelona had little choice but to cut his salary as they top a whopping £1billion worth of debt. And comparisons to the rest of the stars across Europe show just how much Barca value their key man. Behind Messi is his fierce rival Cristiano Ronaldo who takes home £900,000-a-week with the Old Lady. The Portugal superstar has a year left on his deal in Turin but has been linked with a big-money move to Paris Saint-Germain. It may come as no surprise to see Ronaldo's potential future team-mate Neymar in third. The Brazilian earns £606,000-a-week in Paris after recently signing a new deal until 2025 with the option of an extra year. Luis...

    Stars who came out What It Really Costs To Attend America’s Top 50 Colleges The NBA G League Ignite program made waves last year when, in its debut season as the high-profile development team for the G League focused on cultivating top young prospects, it swooped in to sign five-stars Jalen Green, Jonathan Kuminga, Daishen Nix and Isaiah Todd. Now a year older and on the precipice of producing two top-five picks, the program is getting a reset with another star talent in tow as prized recruit Michael Foster signed with Ignite on Friday over Florida State and Georgia, becoming the first player to sign with Ignite in its second season. © Provided by CBS Sports Foster is ranked as the No. 14 overall player in the 247Sports Composite for the 2021 cycle and the No. 5 player at his position.

    (CBS DFW) — The Masters returns this week, only five months after it was previously played. A lot has changed in golf since November. Tiger Woods is out of the game for the foreseeable future; Jordan Spieth has seemingly found his rhythm again. And some things remain exactly as they were. Dustin Johnson is still the top-ranked player in the world, with Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm and Collin Morikawa lurking close behind. And, of course, the Masters is still the Masters.

    Epic Games Exotic weapons just got a lot more common in the recent Fortnite update as NPCs now sell stacks of them, so you can get all loaded up on them if you have enough Gold. As you might know by now, the addition of Exotics is a major part of this season and Epic is trying everything they can to encourage you to pick them up. Most of the guns aren’t overpowered by any means, but when you can fill up your whole inventory with them, chaos can ensue. For example, The Dub shotgun has a knockback ability, similar to how the Flint-Knock Pistol, and getting five of them will let you have 10 shots in total. Since there’s no delay between shooting The Dub, you can cycle through all five of them and shoot right away.

    Look for these five players to break out these five college football blue-bloods in 2021.With the 2020 college football season firmly in the books, we turn our attention ahead to 2021. While we have an idea about who the five best teams will be entering next season, we are always intrigued by the potential breakout stars of these collegiate juggernauts.

    CRISTIANO RONALDO may have to settle for second best if he makes the move to Paris Saint-Germain this summer. For once, the Portuguese superstar may not be the highest-paid player in his team. 4Cristiano Ronaldo would earn less than Neymar if PSG offered to match his current salary 4Juventus are reportedly prepared to sell the 33-year-old next summer Credit: Rex Features Juventus are reportedly planning to cash in on the 35-year-old before his contract expires in 2022. PSG sporting director Leonardo has already indicated their interest in the five-time Ballon d'Or winner. It is expected that the Ligue 1 side will have to at least match Ronaldo's current wages to secure his signature. He rakes in £540,000 a week - nearly FOUR times as much as the club's next highest paid player Matthijs de Ligt. But it will be a different story if he makes the move to France.

    This was supposed to be a huge summer for Jordan Riley. The chance to prove he was underrated, that he was among the nation’s premier players. Instead, the Long Island native has had to settle for Zoom sessions, phone calls and backyard training due to the novel coronavirus pandemic shutting down the AAU circuit. “Jordan has decided to stay in public school. Had he done what everybody else does, re-class and go to a private school, he would be a top 10 in the country and a five-star athlete,” his father Monty said. “I know he’s a five star, I know he’s top 10 in the country.” Riley, a talented and high-flying 6-foot-4 shooting guard at Brentwood High School rated as a four-star recruit by ESPN, was going to travel with the New York Lightning and play in the premier Nike Elite Youth Basketball League this summer for the first time.
