Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong may be one of the most talked about names this summer, but the Dutchman has always been highly rated, and even had a nickname at youth level.De Jong starred under Erik ten Hag at Ajax before making the £65million move to Barcelona, and now Manchester United are looking to bring him to the Premier League.

Meghan Markle was 'favourite to play Rebekah Vardy' in biopic after style similarities
Rebekah Vardy at the moment as the Wagatha Christie trial continues, a combination between the WAG and Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle would still have been difficult to predict.With one married into the Royal family with her husband Prince Harry and one married to premier league champion Jamie Vardy, it is hard to see how they would be combined.Despite it appearing that their lives are worlds apart, they actually have quite a lot of similarities.Of course currently Rebekah is currently involved in the high-profile Wagatha Christie legal battle with fellow WAG Colleen Rooney, whilst Meghan had her own legal battle with the Mail On Sunday.During the ongoing Wagatha case, judge Mrs Justice Steyn quoted part of the privacy case involving the Duchess of Sussex in regards to the striking out of certain parts of evidence, reports The Mirror.But the most surprising link of all is that Meghan was reportedly being lined up to play Rebekah in a Hollywood movie back in 2016.Off the back of Jamie Vardy's incredible rise from non-league football to Premier League champion, there were plans to create a big budget biopic.Jamie started his football career at non-league team Stocksbridge Park Steels and also played for Halifax Town and Fleetwood Town before joining Leicester for £1million in 2012.LA-based Brit Adrian Butchart, a producer and writer, agreed to make the movie with the Oscar-winning producers of The King’s Speech Gareth-Ellis Unwin and Simon Egan and their company Bedlam Productions.But the making of the film has been delayed, which means Meghan likely won't be taking on the role as she has abandoned her acting career.The Suits actress was only dating Prince Harry at the time but the pair have since married before enjoying

Wagatha Christie libel trial between Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney, arguing they should donate the money they would have spent on legal proceedings – said to be £3million – to Dame Deborah James.The former Wag, who was married to Jason Cundy, branded the sensational High Court case, which concluded at the Royal Courts of Justice today, a ‘waste of money’ and compared it to the fundraising efforts of BowelBabe Dame Deborah.Dame Deborah was knighted last week after raising more than £6million for bowel cancer research, following the news she had moved into hospice care at home five years after being diagnosed with the disease.Insisting ‘the only winners will be the lawyers’, Lizzie felt the Wagatha trial, in all reality, was a ‘monumental waste of money’ when you compare it to Dame Deborah’s situation.Rebekah, who is married to Leicester footballer Jamie Vardy, is suing Coleen for libel after Coleen accused her of leaking ‘false stories’ about her private life in October 2019 following a months-long ‘sting operation’ which saw Coleen dubbed ‘Wagatha Christie’.Lizzie wrote for The Sun: ‘Let’s be honest, what a monumental waste of money this trial is . . . in the same week Bowelbabe Deborah James has raised more than £6million for Cancer Research UK.‘A tweet which says the Rooneys and Vardys should quit now and donate all the money they would have spent in legal proceedings to her fund has gone viral.

Rebekah Vardy has walked out of the Wagatha Christie High Court case after Coleen Rooney's lawyer claimed she'd "destroyed evidence".The 40-year-old wife of football star Jamie Vardy left after Coleen's legal representative David Sherborne accused her of "lying under oath" about missing WhatsApp messages.Mr Sherborne said to the Court room that he was stunned this case had got this far in the process. He outlined that in his opinion, Rebekah had no more than a "slither of a case" as he said that her case "shrunk to almost nothing" after recent revelations.Coleen's lawyer said that Mrs Justice Steyn now had to rule on two key things - whether Wayne's wife's post was "substantially true" and if her statement was in the "public interest".Mr Sherborne also made apologies on behalf of his clients - Wayne and Coleen - for not being present for the closing speeches.Their absence was explained as a "long standing travel arrangement with their four children" which had been agreed with their legal representatives, with the view the trial would have ended on Wednesday, May 18.Speaking on behalf of Coleen and Wayne, Mr Sherborne told the court room that famous pair "did not want to go for a trial".He added: "We say what Mrs Rooney said in her post was true.

Rebekah Vardy storms out of Wagatha Christie trial after 'destroying evidence' accusation
Experts backed up this version of events in court on Tuesday, saying that the messages could not have disappeared.Rebekah was the only one of the pair to have shown up to the trial today.Her husband Jamie Vardy was notably absent after delivering an explosive statement about Coleen's husband Wayne's testimony on Tuesday.Meanwhile Coleen and Wayne had jetted off on holiday with their four sons.Coleen has been a regular in the headlines for her love of exotic destinations over the years, often taking as many as 13 holidays over a one-year period.That left Rebekah on her own to hear Coleen's lawyer deliver his damning verdict - that she had allegedly "lied under oath".And it seemed as if the pressure had become too much for her when she made the decision to storm out.Rebekah maintains that she never leaked stories about Coleen to the media.She is suing her former friend for libel, but Coleen is insisting that her social media post accusing her of leaking information was "substantially true".Her lawyer pointed to "deliberate deletion of documents".He added that "no explanation has been given for this deliberate destruction of relevant evidence".Rebekah had arrived looking fashionable in a chic military-style blazer with gold buttons.She paired the smart ensemble with a green top.Meanwhile, Wayne and Coleen had been all smiles as they left the courtroom for the final time the previous day, apparently looking forward to their holiday.Coleen had sported a chic black dress, while Wayne had worn a smart suit.The trial continues.

Rebekah Vardy's explosive text exchanges revealed from WAGatha case
Rebekah Vardy to her agent were released as part of the Wagatha Christie trial.The WAG was accused of leaking information from Coleen Rooney’s private Instagram account to the press in October 2019, which she denies.Now Vardy, 40, is suing Coleen for libel at London’s High Court.As the trial comes to an end, we look back at nine key exchanges between Rebekah Vardy and her agent Caroline Watt.Giving evidence, Rebekah was asked about the so-called ‘Photoshop girl’ conversation with Caroline where they discuss edited photos.An image appears to have been sent to Caroline by Rebekah, but the trial heard that, due to issues with uploading Whatsapp data, all the image files have been lost.Rebekah says to Watt that the pictures “made her fume” as the editing software Photoshop can make you look “five sizes smaller”.Giving evidence, Rebekah said that, when she told Caroline to “leak a story”, she was talking about a report on “body positivity”.‘Lads are fuming’The court saw messages between Rebekah and Caroline in which they discuss Jamie Vardy’s former Leicester City team mate Riyad Mahrez “not turning up to training”.Vardy tells Watt: “Lads are fuming”.An article in The Sun was later published stating Mahrez’s teammates had “turned on him” which David Sherborne, for Coleen, said no other media outlet had.Vardy said this had nothing to do with her.She told the court the story was based on information already in the public domain. A photograph of a number of WAGs at a restaurant in Russia during the 2018 World Cup was discussed at the trial.
