2018 Ballon d’Or winner, Luka Modrić is now expected to leave Real Madrid later in June after 12 years at the club. Signing from Tottenham Hotspur for £30 million in 2012, the Croatian did become one of the best midfielders in the club’s history, winning 24 major trophies including five UEFA Champions League, three La Liga titles and two Copa Del Rey. He also won the FIFA The Best award in 2018. It is unsure where the midfielder will head to in the summer but America remains in the loop.

Current AFCON champions, Senegal is on the pace to defending the cup as they secure qualification to the tournament’s Ro16 after 3-1 win against Cameroon. Ismaila Sarr put them ahead early in the 17th minute with a deflected effort and Habib Diallo was there to double the lead in the 71st minute. The game looked sealed until Cameroon’s Jean-Charles Castelletto pulled a goal late in the 83rd minute. However, Sadio Manè killed off the game, as his effort from inside the box easily beat Andrè Onana to secure an important 3-1 win.
