GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS
Manchester City set up a Champions League semi-final against Paris Saint-Germain after a 2-1 win against Borussia Dortmund last night.
But Liverpool crashed out after being held to a goalless draw by Real Madrid.
Jude Bellingham put Dortmund ahead against City, giving the Germans the advantage on goal difference.
However, a penalty from Riyad Mahrez and a Phil Foden thunderbolt secured a 4-2 aggregate win for Pep Guardiola’s quadruple chasers.
It was a different story at Anfield, with Liverpool failing to find a way past Thibaut Courtois.
The blank stalemate saw Real go through 3-1 on aggregate, and they will play Chelsea for a place in next month’s Istanbul final.
Meanwhile, Declan Rice sounded out Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw on what it is like at Manchester United while away with England, according to reports.
The Manchester Evening News reports Rice, 22, asked his England pals some questions about aspects of life at Old Trafford during the international break last month as he contemplates his future.
A number of United players are thought to be very popular within the England group and club chiefs may hope that senior stars could help swing a deal.
United are said to have been monitoring his progress for over two years as they look to land a young defensive midfielder.
The report states the club believe Rice – who can also slot in at centre-back – could develop into more of a box-to-box style player at United.
Finally, Bayern Munich are sure they can land Erling Haaland on the cheap – if they wait until next summer, reports say.
The 20-year-old Dortmund striker is being tracked by all of Europe’s top clubs from Man City and United to Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Haaland could be on the move this summer in a deal worth a mega £150million.
But the Daily Mail reports that Bayern think they can sign him for £65m next year.
That would meet the release clause in his Dortmund contract and make him a long-term replacement for Robert Lewandowski, 33.
And Haaland would then become the latest Dortmund player to move on to rivals Bayern like Lewandowski, Mario Gotze and Mats Hummels.
