manchester united have submitted an opening proposal for willy kambwala

Manchester United have reportedly upped their interest in the highly promising talent Willy Kambwala by making an opening bid.

The 15-year-old has caught the attention of the Red Devils as an emerging prospect from the France Under 16s, and is seen as one of the decade’s next break out stars.

According to getfootballnewsfrance.com, United are ready to test his club Sochaux with an opening bid of €1million (£900,000).

However the French second tier outfit are set to reject the approach from the Red Devils, insisting they will only open talks over a transfer if they double their offer. 

Although the centre-back is interested in a move to United, it is thought he will not force through a move to Old Trafford out of respect to the club that have brought him through their academy. 

At just 15-years-old he is not yet eligible for a senior contract in England, and he still has two years to run on his current youth deal at Sochaux.

Meanwhile, United could face a shortfall of £25million from adidas this summer if they do not qualify for the Champions League.

United have a £75m-per-year deal with the kit supplier but will only be paid £50m by the company if they miss out once again at returning to Europe’s top table.

Only goal difference is keeping them out of the top four in the Premier League heading into the final three games, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side still also hope to win the Europa League in August which would also guarantee a spot among Europe’s elite.

UFC sponsor Reebok distance themselves from Colby Covington after controversial Black Lives Matter rant

UFC sponsor Reebok quickly distanced themselves from Colby Covington’s controversial Black Lives Matter rant.

Covington beat bitter rival Tyron Woodley last weekend with a fifth round TKO in the headline fight of UFC Vegas 11.

But the 32-year-old launched a verbal tirade after his exploits in the octagon, slamming the BLM movement and labelling Woodley a ‘communist’.

Reebok, the outgoing apparel sponsor of Dana White’s organisation, released a statement to Bloody Elbow.

It read: “Reebok is the uniform provider for the UFC, however we do not sponsor Colby Covington.

We do not agree with the sentiments he expressed, and stand firm in our belief that Black lives matter.”

“We do not agree with the sentiments he expressed, and stand firm in our belief that Black lives matter. We stand with athletes and communities who are fighting for change.”

In May Reebok clarified their position on the issue in a statement which was addressed ‘To the black community’.

It said: “Without the black community, Reebok would not exist. America would not exist.

“We are not asking you to buy our shoes. We are asking you to walk in someone else’s.”

The footwear and clothing company were also quick to end their partnership deal with Crossfit after CEO Greg Glassman posted an insensitive tweet referencing George Floyd.

Glassman later resigned after backlash to his tweet ‘It’s FLOYD-19’.

MMA star Covington can count US president Donald Trump among his fans and the POTUS even gatecrashed a media interview to pass on his congratulations.

Covington is lining up a grudge match with best friend turned rival Jorge Masvidal but his post-fight comments about Woodley made the headlines.

He told the media: “The Black Lives Matter is a complete sham. It’s a joke.

“They’re taking these people that are complete terrorists. They’re taking these people that that are criminals.

“These aren’t people that are hardworking Americans, blue-collar Americans. These are bad people. They’re criminals.

“They shouldn’t be attacking police. If you’re breaking the law and you’re threatening the cops with weapons, you deserve to get what you get.

“Law enforcement protects us all. If we don’t have law enforcement, it’d be the wild wild west.

“[Woodley]’s a communist. He’s a Marxist. He stands for criminals. He hates America, and that’s why he got broke tonight.”
