Biggest stories of the week

Man City star set to sign "seven figure" deal with Italian fashion house

Back in the 1990's, it would have been virtually unheard of for luxury brands to even consider partnering with football. That's because the sport had acquired a rather undesirable reputation, partially due to the behaviors of some fans known as hooligans, and overall had a rather gritty image attached to the sport.

However, the rise of players like David Beckham soon changed that attitude, and now these days, it's not unheard of to see luxury companies now looking to link up with players and teams. Examples of this include Dior's recent partnership with PSG star Kylian Mbappe, or Armani working with Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as the same Armani being behind the designs for both Napoli's kits and suits for the Italian national team.

And now, it looks like Gucci has decided to join others in its genre by linking up with football. Recently, reports indicated that the Italian fashion house had signed a huge deal with Manchester City's Jack Grealish. Grealish, who began his professional career with Aston Villa, made history last year after City splashed about $131 million (approximately £100 million) to bring him to the Etihad, making him the most expensive English player in history.

Clearly this is something that Gucci had in mind when deciding to partner with the player, who also has brand ambassador deals with gaming giants Electronic Arts (EA) as well as Nike. It's an interesting move for Gucci, who, unlike some of their other counterparts such as Prada, Burberry, and the aforementioned duo of Dior and Armani, have historically steered clear of working with sports personalities, instead preferring to link up with actors and musicians. 

Grealish is reportedly set to earn somewhere in the ballpark of "seven figures" for his deal with Gucci.

Real Madrid celebrate a handful of milestones with 3-1 win against Chelsea

The game between Chelsea and Real Madrid left quite a few talking points for fans to discuss, especially if those football fans happen to be Real Madrid supporters.

The Spanish giants walked away from England with a massive win under their belt, but the 3-1 end result means much more for the 13-time UEFA Champions League winners for a bunch of reasons, which we feel inclined to share with you.

First of all, Real Madrid are known as the most prolific team in this competition, beating almost every rival they have run into in this tournament. Well, that was not the case with Chelsea, who they have now managed to beat for the first time in UEFA Champions League history.

As for their coach, Thomas Tuchel, his unbeaten run against Los Blancos has also come to an end, as the German had not lost any of his previous six run-ins with the Spanish giants.

One of the key members for Real Madrid to accomplish this feat was David Alaba. The Austrian defender registered his 70th win in this competition in his 100th match, the most victories by any player in his first 100 UEFA Champions League appearances.

Last, but not least, we have to talk about Karim Benzema. The French player added one more milestone to his tally with his hat-trick, becoming only the second player after Cristiano Ronaldo to score hat-tricks in consecutive knockout stage matches.

Robertson gives brilliant response after Benfica fans throw missiles at Liverpool players in 3-1 UCL win

Tuesday saw the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals kick off, and while most were fixated on Manchester City's showdown with Atletico Madrid at the Etihad Stadium, Liverpool played out a thrilling first-leg encounter with Portuguese giants Benfica.

The Merseyside heavyweights made the trip to the Estádio da Luz, a ground with one of the most intense atmospheres in Europe, and it showed! 

The visitors marched into a convincing lead early on, with Konate and Mane netting in the first half to all but win the game for Klopp's men. However, Darwin Nunez, who had been impressive all game, pulled one back for the hosts courtesy of a Konate error, thus handing the Eagles hope of a comeback.

However, Luis Diaz, a familiar foe from his time with bitter rivals Porto, killed off the match with only three minutes left in normal time, rounding the opposition keeper and slotting the ball into an empty net to secure a 3-1 victory. Given the Colombian's previous allegiance, the Benfica crowd were not happy to see him score, with one supporter going viral after throwing a stick at the Liverpool players as they celebrated.

However, the January signing wasn't the only Anfield man to get pelted by the Estádio da Luz crowd. Andy Robertson also saw objects hurled at his direction while taking a late corner kick, with the Scottish superstar later admitting that he was targeted with a lighter or two.

Fortunately, none of the objects hurled at the Reds aces hit anyone, and while Robertson highlighted the dangers of fans launching missiles at players, the Liverpool left-back also highlighted the silver lining in yesterday's occurrence with a brilliant joke.

"They weren't best pleased, were they!" Andy told BT Sport after the game.

"Quite a few lighters thrown at me, maybe it will help them stop smoking – so we'll take the positives!"

Report: Manchester United close to finalizing the appointment of Erik ten Hag

Manchester United are set to finalize Erik ten Hag's appointment as the club's next manager, multiple reports from the UK have confirmed. The 52-year-old Ajax manager has emerged as the favored candidate to take over the reins at Old Trafford as the club looks to make a decision about their new coach in the coming weeks.

Ten Hag was interviewed by the Red Devils last month, having been shortlisted alongside Paris Saint-Germain's Mauricio Pochettino, Spain national team coach Luis Enrique and Sevilla's Julen Lopetegui as the ideal candidates for the role. The list was subsequently narrowed down to the Ajax manager and Pochettino when it became apparent that both Lopetegui and Enrique were committed to their respective sides and, as a result, were unavailable for the vacant post.

Rumors that emerged at the time stated that Ten Hag had won over the United authorities after impressing in his interview. On Wednesday, the BBC reported that the he had become the obvious choice for the 20-time league winners as they believe he will fit into their new structure where John Murtough serves as the football director, with Darren Fletcher being the technical director and Ralf Rangnick occupying an advisory role.

With Ajax currently fighting for the Dutch title with PSV Eindhoven, it is unlikely that an official announcement will be made soon. As a result, officials of United have issued a response to the speculation of Ten Hag's imminent arrival, citing that it will be premature to state that the search for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's replacement is over.

Ajax is said to be excepting of a formal offer from Man Utd to pay the $2.2M (£1.7M) compensation required to release Ten Hag from his contract. Should the appointment be made official, he will become the fifth manager of Manchester United since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.

Maradona's iconic shirt set to go up in multi-million dollar auction

Back in 1986, Argentina and England locked horns in the World Cup, with a spot in the semifinals at stake. Given that the two sides had been involved in the Falklands War only four years before, there were still some geo-political tensions simmering under the surface by the two sides took to the pitch, with La Albiceleste going on to win 2-1 in controversial manner.

The first was a goal that has now been described as "the hand of God" thanks to a quip made by Maradona after the match, where he noted that it'd been scored by "a little with the head of Maradona, and a little with the hand of God". Of course, it was a handball, but was allowed to stand despite the English players' protests as the ref couldn't see it - and VAR was decades away from becoming a reality.

And now, nearly 36 years after that iconic match, his kit will be going on sale. London-based auction house Sotheby's is set to display it from April 20th to May 4th after getting it from the National Football Museum in Manchester, where it's been on loan for the past 20 years. Maradona had given it to midfielder Steve Hodge before it ended up at the museum. The kit is expected to fetch millions, with some putting an estimated price as $5.25 million (£4 million).

LEAKED: Barcelona's offer to sign Robert Lewandowski revealed

According to a report by Spanish television show El Chiringuito, Los Culés are ready to offer Robert Lewandowski the kind of contract Bayern München have not been able to hand him. Nevertheless, the alleged wage set to be offered by Los Blaugranas raises a few doubts about the team's chances of signing the Polish striker.

The television show stated that Los Culés' offer to sign Lewandowski is a three-year deal, far longer than the one-year deal offered to the striker by Bayern. Nevertheless, the wages Barcelona are ready to pay Lewandowski add up to eight million euros (around $8.6M), which represents only half of his current paycheck with the Bavarian side.

Huge blow: Arsenal star ruled out for the rest of the season after embarrassing Palace defeat

Things have gone from bad to worse for Arsenal. Not too long after losing 3-0 away to Crystal Palace in the Premier League, the Gunners have confirmed a serious injury to one key player that could keep him out for the rest of the season.

That man is none other than Kieran Tierney, the Scottish star who has established himself as one of the key members of Arteta's improving defense. The left-back, who had joined up with his national team during the recent international break, was absent from Monday's trip to Selhurst Park, with the manager revealing that this was due to a worrisome knee concern.

Unfortunately, Arsenal confirmed that his season is likely over. The north London giants announced in an official statement that the former Celtic ace will undergo surgery after seeing a specialist after damaging his left knee. According to Charles Watts of Goal, the club are hopeful their left-back will recover in time for the upcoming pre-season in July, meaning the odds of him playing again this term are close to zero.
