🍿 Is McKennie tied to the Premier League?

House of Champions Podcast

It is possible that at the time you are reading this, Weston McKennie could join a Premier League club. Or maybe sometime next week, or in the summer, or not at all. Welcome to the wonderful, unpredictable world of the transfer market. What we do know for sure is this Leeds United are interested McKennie. According to CBS Sports insider Fabrizio Romano, Both sides have agreed on personal terms and now it’s just up to Juventus and Leeds to negotiate a deal. But is the move actually good for McKennie or should he wait for other offers? Chuck Booth looks to see if McKennie might be better off He is waiting for a move to leaders Arsenal.

  • Sales stand: “In terms of the other interested parties, Arsenal are the only team to keep an eye on. The Gunners could offer McKennie a chance at a Premier League title, which is nice, but he would be in a difficult situation to be in would fight for minutes. It’s not guaranteed.” a regular as Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey are on top form. In theory, McKennie would have to be at his best to give Mikel Arteta tough lineup decisions. The quality of play around him would clearly compare better to Leeds, a team who see less of the ball but potentially offer more chances in the minutes.

It’s the sort of puzzle that players of McKennie’s caliber are often confronted with. Do you want to be a regular starter for a less prestigious team or fight in the world elite for minutes? It’s also worth noting that both are here Arsenal midfielders are approaching – or already on – the wrong side of 30. So it’s entirely possible that if McKennie impresses, he could be there on his way to a future first-choice option. But it’s a risky decision.

πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ USWNT lessons from New Zealand

the United States women’s national team completed a two-game streak New Zealandand now the attention is on those NWSL Season with training camp just around the corner. Sandra Herrera takes a look at where the current team stands and why those two games were such valuable experiences with the World Championship In less than six months:

  • Herrera: β€œOpening the year against the World Cup co-hosts provided a unique opportunity for players from the current pool to gain valuable experience. In an environment that will mirror the group stage of the World Cup, the team trained, traveled and played in Wellington and Auckland: many of the team’s players had their first camp call-ups during Andonovski’s tenure as head coach since he replaced Jill Ellis in 2019 14 are still on their way to compete in top international tournaments.”

πŸ’΅ Best bets

Some fascinating games to watch over the next few days. All odds courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook and all US/Eastern times.

  • EFL Cup: Nottingham Forest vs Man United, Wednesday 3pm
    πŸ’° THE SELECTION: Forest (+470) — Manchester United are obviously the better team but they have been a bit shaky in recent weeks. And even in the showdown against Arsenal they were the clearly inferior team, although they almost saved a point. They’re better than Forest for sure, but +470 is a really high price to pay and the Tricky Trees could definitely catch United in their sleep after that bitterly disappointing loss to Arsenal.

  • Copa del Rey: Barcelona vs Real Sociedad, Wednesday 3pm
    πŸ’° THE CHOICE: Barcelona (-170) — La Real recently made waves with a nine-game winning streak. But this series was against extremely weak competition. They are in for a rude awakening against a Barcelona side who, despite their Champions League misfortune, remain one of the best in Europe. Follow SportsLine’s best bets here.
