Lukaku is Open to a Reunion With Mourinho
Everton talented striker Romelu Lukaku has hinted that his time with the club may be ending at the end of the season. Speculation about his next destination includes a possible reunion with former coach Jose Mourinho, who is rumored to be the next coach of Manchester United after Louis van Gaal’s contract expires at the conclusion of the year.

Rooney Thankful for a Spot on England’s Roster
Wayne Rooney has never taken for granted his spot on England’s national team roster for the upcoming Euro 2016. Currently, Rooney is sidelined with a knee injury that will keep him off the pitch for at least 10 days. No fear for England, as they have strong depth at the striker position. Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy have played well in Rooney’s absence, while he continues to rehab and train to partake in the next round of international matches. The competition between the three is fierce, but the ultimate goal is to develop a chemistry that puts them on the road to success this summer.
Remi Garde is Out as Aston Villa Coach

Club officials confirmed that Eric Black would take over as acting manger until a permanent replacement is named.
Still Bad Blood Between Tevez and Manchester United
There is still some bad blood between Manchester United and Carlos Tevez. The talented striker still claims the club never offered him a new contract, which forced Tevez to sign with cross-town rival, Manchester City. He played two seasons with Man U on loan from Juventus before club officials began discuss options to buy his rights. Manchester United went on to win the Champions League final in Rome, and still no new contract offer went to Tevez. This forced him to sign with Man City shortly after.
