SOCCER: Juventus have slapped a £21.5million price tag on Cristiano Ronaldo amid reports they could be willing to sell him in the summer.
Andrea Pirlo is thought to want to bolster his attacking options ahead of the 2021/22 campaign and the sale of Ronaldo would help facilitate that.
The 36-year-old is said to favour a return to Real Madrid, with the Spanish giants 5/1 favourites with Sky Bet to secure his signature in the summer.
However, any clubs thinking they are getting the Portuguese forward on the cheap, need to factor in his annual wages, believed to be £75million.
A return to Manchester United is priced at 14/1.
More likely is Ronaldo seeing out his four-year deal at Juventus and then moving on.
Stones: Man City winners can be England winners
SOCCER: John Stones believes quadruple-chasing Manchester City can help England win Euro 2020.
Stones and City team-mates Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden will form the core of the England side as they bid for Euro glory this summer.
He said: "If we can bring that winning mentality into the England squad it would be invaluable.
"It would be massive for us if we can keep pushing and keep fighting at City until the end of the season and see what happens.
"I'd love everyone in the England squad to be coming in camp after winning something but that's not possible."
It might not be possible but a City clean sweep of trophies - priced at 6/1 with Sky Bet - would certainly reduce the numbers of players arriving at the Euros camp with winners' medals in their back pockets. Of the 26 players named in the England squad for the current World Cup qualifiers, 16 go into the closing stages of the season with a chance of winning at least one trophy.
And the chances of Stones adding to his trophy haul in the summer?
Blades players learned of Wilder's fate through Twitter
SOCCER: David McGoldrick has revealed the Sheffield United players found out about Chris Wilder's sacking on Twitter.
The United striker told talkSPORT: "The weird thing about it was that it came out of the blue from nowhere.
"We got into training as normal, got into the treatment room and someone said, 'Look at this on Twitter! Someone's posted something saying the gaffer's going to be sacked'."
Paul Heckingbottom has taken interim charge at the Blades who are almost guaranteed to be playing Championship soccer next season - United are 28/1 to stay up with Betfred.
Despite having left United in a perilous position, McGoldrick still believes Wilder would be an excellent appointment for managerless Celtic.
"Celtic need someone to go in there with big ideas, Wilder will go in there with his own ideas.
"He would change that club, he'd get the boys playing for them."
