Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has announced that Xherdan Shaqiri will not play this weekend in the Premier League match against Norwich City, because he hasn't returned to training yet.

After a short winter break, Liverpool will return to the green field of football with the match against Norwich City, where they will aim for three points to get even closer to the title of champion this season.

Xherdan Shaqiri will not be able to play in this match nor be on the bench, as he has not returned to training, due to an injury that has kept him out of Klopp's squad for some time.

Meanwhile, Klopp has announced the return of Sadio Mane and James Milner, both of whom suffered minor injuries. The same is not true for Nathaniel Clyne and Paul Glatzel, who have been injured for a long time.

"It should be noted that, except for Shaqiri, Clyne and Glatzel, all players have been trained," Klopp said at a pre-match press conference on Saturday.

Shaqiri has played in only ten games during this 2019/20 season and contributed one goal. He has failed to deliver more than himself since Klopp has preferred other players before him as well as the cause of multiple injuries.

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has admitted that he would have liked to play with Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo amid speculation about his future at the Camp Nou.

Ivan Rakitic was rumored to be a potential transfer to Juventus or Inter during the summer transfer window, while there were reports of interest from Manchester United.

All of this came as rumors circulated that Rakitic would be offered Paris Saint-Germain as part of a deal to return Neymar to the Camp Nou earlier this 2019/20 season.

Rakitic continues to be the focus of media attention for his future in Barcelona. After saying Juventus are still interested in him, the 31-year-old was asked if he would like to play with Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Of course I would have liked it. He is one of the best players in history. Everyone enjoys watching him play and he is doing a very good job at Juventus, ”Rakitic said.

Rakitic is currently teaming up with Barcelona captain and six-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi, whom he says is the best of all time.

"It's great to play with - he's special. There have been great players in every era, but I'm sure he's been better in the last 15 years, "Rakitici added.

“In my opinion, I think he's the best of all time. To play with him for six years has been great. "

Valverde thinks Real are the number one favorite to triumph in Spain.

Shortly after being dismissed from Barcelona for negative results, Ernesto Valverde is back to talk about La Liga.

Now, as a man without a club, Valverde has slightly disappointed the Catalans by saying he sees Zinedine Zidane's Madrid as the favorite to win La Liga.

After 23 laps, Real leads with 52 points, three more than Barça in second place, which has accumulated 49.

“Your favorite to win La Liga? Real Madrid are very strong and very focused on La Liga, "said Ernesto.

He said he wants to take advantage of this free time by watching different matches, meeting with colleagues, different places and so on.

Valverde said he has not watched a Barcelona match since his dismissal in January, the only meeting he has followed with interest is that of Athletic Bilbao, where Barca were eliminated from the King's Cup.

50 million euros a season, this is PSG's new offer for Mbappe that is being sought by Real Madrid.

Kylian Mbappe has a valid contract until the summer of 2022 with Paris Saint Germain and despite attempts by the French club, the striker has so far rejected any offer to further extend the co-operation.

However, according to the French daily L'Equipe, the club are ready to offer a staggering salary of €50 million a season for the striker, with the condition that the contract will be extended at least until the summer of 2025.

Mbappe currently earns 15 million euros a season and is the second highest paid player in Ligue 1 after Brazilian Neymar, and if he signs the new contract, he will reach Ronaldo and Messi's salary level.

The numbers are indeed tempting for the world champion striker in France, but the latter himself seems tempted by the idea of ​​playing in Spain with Real Madrid, where his patriot Zinedine Zidane is eagerly looking for him.
