The reigning European champions sealed maximum points from their group stage campaign after running out comfortable winners on Tuesday night Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale struck in the first half to help give Real Madrid a 4-0 win over Ludogorets and make it six wins out of six in Champions League Group B. The defending European champions were guaranteed top spot but recorded maximum points for the second time in their history after further goals from Alvaro Arbeloa and Alvaro Medran sealed victory. Ludogorets saw Marcelinho sent off midway through the first half and missed out on the Europa League as they struggled to contain the quality of the Spanish giants. Amid early pressure from Real, Ludogorets' slim hopes of taking anything from the Santiago Bernabeu diminished with the loss of a man and a goal in quick succession. Marcelinho – on target in the reverse fixture - handled Raphael Varane's goalbound header to earn a straight red card before Ronaldo converted the penalty to move past club legen ...
SPORTS UPDATE WITH EMMAH ATAI: Brendan Rodgers has said that Liverpool have a "fight" on their hands to qualify for next season's Champions League. The Northern Irishman was speaking in the aftermath of his side elimination from this year's competition following a1-1 draw at home to Basel, which was not enough to seal progression to the last 16. Liverpool won just one of their six Group B games, which came courtesy of a last-minute Steven Gerrard penalty in a 2-1 home win over Ludogorets Razgrad. Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed former Real Madrid team-mate Raul's Champions League goalscoring record by scoring his 72nd goal in the prestigious European competition against Ludogorets. The Portuguese superstar also closed the gap on rival Lionel Messi to just two goals before Gareth Bale doubled Real Madrid's lead in the 38th minute when his headed effort flew past keeper Vladislav Stoyanov. Substitutes Alvaro Arbeloa and Alvaro Medran scored late on to pile misery on Ludogorets. Aaron Ramsey has dispelled fears ...

Mažić Basel 0-1 Real Madrid: Ronaldo earns Blancos club-record 15th successive win The Portugal international moved level with Raul in the Champions League's all-time leading goalscorers' list after bundling home a cross from Karim Benzema Cristiano Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game as Real Madrid sealed top spot in Champions League Group B and racked up a club-record 15th successive win courtesy of a 1-0 victory at Basel. The prolific Portugal forward matched Real legend Raul's tally of 71 Champions League goals with a first-half strike at Jakob-Park on Wednesday. Ronaldo's latest goal was his 26th in what is proving to be another outstanding season and helped Real match the run of wins achieved in the 1960-61 and 2011-12 campaigns. Gareth Bale struck by the crossbar in the second half and Ronaldo missed a great chance to register his 72nd Champions League goal, which would have left him two ...

On this day 10 years ago, Alvaro Arbeloa made his Real Madrid debut.
Manchester City are preparing a £35 million bid for Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil and are willing to offload Yaya Toure. Liverpool are tracking Belenenses’ 20-year-old midfielder Fabio Sturgeon. Tottenham are keeping tabs on Toulouse striker Wissam Ben Yedder. For January Napoli could buy from Real Madrid Spanish defender Alvaro Arbeloa. Chilean media claim Arturo Vidal's agent is in talks with Real Madrid regarding a possible transfer, as Juventus are ready to cash in on the prolific midfielder. Spanish Club would want to sing Chelsea's goalkeeper, who has been relegated to the bench from Courtois arrive. Also, Los Colchoneros have many doubts about Oblak. Should Arsene Wenger allow Mesut Ozil to leave Arsenal in January, the French boss is ready to make a host of new signings. Real Madrid's Sami Khedira, Dortmund's Mats Hummels and Schalke's Julian Draxler are all on the Gunners' wishlist. Both Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are monitoring Lionel Messi's current situation at Barcelona, with ...

Backpage news Sun - Real Madrid are set to *** Radamel Falcao from under the noses of Arsenal & Juventus for £50m. Former Arsenal & Watford keeper Manuel Almunia has been forced to retire due to a heart condition. Daily Mail Roy Hodgson is set to call on England's youngsters for his next squad. Danny Rose, Calum Chambers, Fabien Delph and John Stones could all be called up today. Fernando Torres could be on his way to AC Milan in a loan deal from Chelsea. Daily Mirror - former Liverpool defender Alvaro Arbeloa is looking for a return to the Premier League after falling out of favour at Real Madrid. Brendan Rodgers is set to hand Mario Balotelli his Liverpool debut against Tottenham. Daily Record - Virgil Van Dijk had dropped a massive hint that his future could be in doubt. The Dutchman has stated that he wants to play at the highest level. With Celtic missing out on the Champions League he could be on way out by Monday's transfer window deadline.
Liverpool FC have today completed the signing of Spanish international defender Alberto Moreno from Sevilla. The 22-year-old sealed the formalities of his switch at Melwood, having undergone a medical, and becomes Brendan Rodgers' eighth new recruit of the summer. An athletic, talented left-back, Moreno won the Europa League with his former club last season and helped the La Liga side to a fifth-place finish. He has made three senior appearances for Spain and narrowly missed out on a place in their squad for the World Cup in Brazil. Upon finalising his transfer, Moreno told "In my view, Liverpool are the best club in England and I couldn't waste an opportunity to come and play for them. "I spoke with Xabi Alonso, Pepe Reina and Alvaro Arbeloa and they told me this is a spectacular club whose fans follow it in a very special way.

But it won’t be just the football that get hearts pumping, the wives and girlfriends (AKA WAG’s) of footballing stars will also be out in force… However, some of the best known and sexiest WAG’s will not be coming to Brazil because of their partner’s absence from their national squads.

UCL final probable starting line-ups Carlo Ancelotti © Action Images Thu, 22 May | 09:11 The Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid starting line-ups for Saturday's Champions League final in Lisbon are likely to comprise the following players: Real Madrid (4-3-3) Iker Casillas, Age 33. Inspirational keeper for Real and Spain, he lost his first team place in La Liga but has proved his reactions remain sharp in the cup competitions. Has captained the team to a King's Cup win this season and is capable of improbable saves, but can also be suspect in the air. Dani Carvajal, Age 22. The right-back has made rapid progress having first won Alvaro Arbeloa's place and then consolidated it when his teammate was sidelined through injury. Has stood out for his marauding runs down the wing but there remain doubts over his concentration defensively. Pepe, Age 31. When Pepe keeps his temper under control he is one of the top centre halves in the game and he forms a solid partnership with Sergio Ramos. Quick, a fierce tackler ...
Real Madrid pair Alvaro Arbeloa and Isco out of Spain World Cup squad - Tribal Football
Spain’s provisional 30-man squad for the FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil was named by manager Vicente Del Bosque. The manager omitted Alvaro Arbeloa and Isco, while giving a chance to Daniel Carvajal and Ander Iturraspe for their first caps for Spain. Alvaro Arbeloa’s omission is a huge surprise as the versatile defender was part of the Spain sides that have won back-to-back European Championships and the World Cup in the last six years. Arbeloa’s club-mate Carvajal has earned a spot due to his fine form and will definitely be first choice for the right-back position. Highly-rated Real Madrid playmaker Isco is among those who have missed out, as well as Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado, who has had a poor campaign in the English Premier League for Tottenham. Fernando Torres has earned himself a place for the striker’s role. The defending champions have included seven players from Barcelona and four each from Champions League finalists Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Del Bosque will announce his ...

Ancelotti is unlikely to make too many changes to the team that won so handsomely in midweek, but Alvaro Arbeloa and Raphael Varane may come in to replace Dani Carvajal and Pepe in defence. Jese Rodriguez is likely to be a substitute again, given Gareth Bale’s brace at the Veltins arena. Simeone is expected to leave out-of-form duo Diego Ribas and David Villa on the bench, with the more combative Raul Garcia starting in attack alongside Diego Costa. Koke, Arda Turan and Miranda, who were rested as Atletico lost 3-0 at Osasuna last weekend, will all come back into the starting XI

An exclusive interview with Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa.
Spain can win Worldcup again, but they won't because del Bosque is way too traditional and not imaginative enough, not to mention there's much politics into play. I mean, imagine the fallout from benching Xavi Hernandez (something that needs to happen because he's past it). Also, I would bet anything he sticks with Alvaro Arbeloa at RB, even after what happened at Confeds
Tactical Analysis: Valencia 2-3 RealMadrid Jese’s second half goal keeps Real Madrid within five points of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. Carlo Ancelotti made three changes to the side that drew Osasuna. Angel Di Maria, Nacho, and Alvaro Arbeloa were in the starting lineup, as Gareth Bale and Pepe were unavailable. Caretaker manager Nico Estevez made several changes to Valencia’s 4-2-3-1. Jonas led the line ahead of Fede, Pablo Piatti and Sofiane Feghouli, while Oriol Romeu and Daniel Parejo were in the double-pivot. This was a disappointing match that surprisingly produced several goals – Madrid dominated possession, and although Valencia’s shape nullified their threat, attacking quality prevailed. Valencia shape One of the key components towards Valencia’s impressive display was their shape without the ball. Estevez’s side dropped into two compact banks of four and minimized space between the lines. We struggled to find space in central areas around the final third, and this led to their fro ...
Arbeloa: Ancelotti To Thank For Real Victory: Real Madrid goalscorer Alvaro Arbeloa believes the tactical nouse of manager Carlo Ancelotti changed the game as the home side defeated Galatasaray 4-1 in their Champions League fixture. [ESPN] -
FIFA 14: Top 10 underrated stars 10. Gylfi Sigurdsson - 77 Icelandic midfielder Sigurdsson - who suffered World Cup playoff heartbreak at the hands of Croatia earlier this week - often frustrates Tottenham fans with his inconsistency but, in a season where Andre Villas-Boas' men have looked rather toothless in attack, he has provided a rare bright spark. 9. Alvaro Arbeloa - 77 While obviously not one of the more celebrated members of the modern Spanish squad, full-back Arbeloa is a model of consistency who has been playing at the very highest level for a number of seasons now. 8. Matija Nastasic - 77 Although he certainly did not cover himself in glory following a mix-up with goalkeeper Joe Hart that cost Manchester City a potentially valuable point at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League recently, a rating of just 77 seems harsh on Serbian international Nastasic who has otherwise established himself as one of European football's most-promising young defensive talents. 7. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - 77 Whi ... rates South Africa’s players following their memorable 1-0 win over Spain at Soccer City on Tuesday night. PLAYER RATINGS: (Out of 10) *9 Itumeleng Khune – Named Man of the Match for a number of good saves throughout the match, including one right at the death when Alvaro Arbeloa could have snatched an equaliser. 7 Anele Ngconga - He defended well, but rarely overlapped which limited his normal game of defending and attacking down the right. 7 Thabo Matlaba - Lots of promising runs, but the final pass always lets him down. 7 Bongani Khumalo – He allowed Fernando Llorente a free header in the 27th minute, though it appeared there was a little push from the Spain forward. But then again he did well to block David Villa's left footed shot, also in the first half. 7 Thabo Nthethe – He gave away the ball cheaply at times in the first half, but came out strongly in the second half and rarely looked in trouble. 8 Andile Jali - He showed very little respect for Spain’s midfielders and was at ...
Soweto (South Africa) (AFP) - World champions Spain suffered only a second loss in 17 matches this year after losing 1-0 to South Africa in a friendly international on Tuesday. Midfielder Bernard Parker scored the early second-half winner, chipping goalkeeper Victor Valdes from close range and a desperate lunge from a defender could not keep the ball out. Spain rarely threatened to equalise until Alvaro Arbeloa came close deep in stoppage time at the Soccer City stadium where they defeated the Netherlands 1-0 to win the 2010 World Cup. The shock defeat came five months after the only other reverse for La Roja (The Red Fury) this year -- a 3-0 hiding from hosts Brazil in the Confederations Cup final. "It was a fantastic result," said South Africa coach Gordon Igesund. "The players were great and our tactics were spot on. "We knew what Spain would do and planned accordingly. The supporters needed a result like this after our failure to qualify for the 2014 World Cup." Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque, who s ...
A drama-filled International Friendly but South Africa and World Champions Spain at the FNB Stadium, where the Fifa World Cup 2010 Final took place, ended as South Africa 1-0 Spain with a surprising victory from the host team. With Iker Casillas starting in nets, he was taken off at the start of the second half being replaced by Barcelona no.1 Victor Valdes. Although he later picked up and injury in the 75th minute and with Spain having used all their substitutions, defender Alvaro Arbeloa was chosen to fill the position in the nets however the World Champions were able to bend the rules, although with the South African coach being firmly against this, and bring on Pepe Reina - and not to forget the almost-turning-violent conflict between Pepe Reina and South Africa coach Gordon Igesund. This surely was a drama-filled fixture. Your views on the International Friendly? -

Ill-fated Casillas injured again September 18, 2013 9:53am ISTANBUL - Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas was forced off in the 15th minute of Tuesday's (Wednesday, PHL time) 6-1 Champions League Group B romp at Galatasaray after sustaining a rib injury in a collision with teammate Sergio Ramos. Medical staff taped up the affected area but it quickly became clear the Real captain would be unable to continue and he was replaced by Diego Lopez. Coach Carlo Ancelotti told reporters that he hoped Casillas would recover in 3-to-4 days but Spanish media reported the 32-year-old could be sidelined for two weeks. "Iker had bad luck, that happens in football," said Real's hat-trick hero Cristiano Ronaldo. "He did something to his ribs. He was down in the dumps but he will recover soon." Casillas has barely played since Real and Spain teammate Alvaro Arbeloa accidentally kicked his hand during a King's Cup match in January and broke a bone. He fell out with former coach Jose Mourinho on his return and was replaced ...

“Q3: Who wore the No.2 shirt for Liverpool before Alvaro Arbeloa? Rob Jones
All bets are off on Edinson Cavani joining Paris Saint-Germain. It appears Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has been in talks with the club and they have met his release clause. Real Madrid have addressed their problem area at right-back by bringing back Daniel Carvajal to the club. The Spanish Under-21 international had a buy-back clause in his deal with Bayer Leverkusen and the Spanish outfit have exercised it. He will battle Alvaro Arbeloa for the starting slot. Veteran Italian striker Luca Toni will continue his playing career with Hellas Verona. The former Italian international is now 36-years-old but feels he can still do a job in Serie A. He has signed a one-year deal with the newly promoted side after his release by Fiorentina. Lazio have moved to quash rumours suggesting their star Brazilian midfielder Hernanes could be on his way to Paris Saint-Germain. The Italian outfit’s president Claudio Lotito has rubbished the reports. AC Milan have confirmed that they have given Santos one last op ...
Brazil vs Spain: Score, Grades and Highlights from Confederations Cup 2013 Final BY JOSEPH ZUCKER (FEATURED COLUMNIST) ON JUNE 30, 2013 108k reads 205 Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse more storiesNext Brazil firmly put themselves in discussion of the 2014 World Cup favorites after their 3-0 demolition of Spain in the 2013 Confederations Cup final Sunday night in Rio de Janeiro. Although Brazil were the host, OptaJoe noted how difficult a task it would be to knock off La Roja. The Selecao wasted little time in getting the early advantage, though, at the Maracana. Two minutes in, Fred poked the ball in to put Brazil up, 1-0. It was not the kind of goal you'd associate with beautiful Brazilian football. Hulk delivered in a cross from the right that Gerard Pique and Alvaro Arbeloa failed to deal with. As the ball was bouncing around, Fred took a tumble and knocked it in with his right while on the ground.

THe DeMoLiShInG ExErCiSe Many of Spain's players had been here before. This was Barcelona-Bayern all over again and the deja vu was as fresh as it was frightening. Just as the Bavarians picked apart, pummeled, out-pressed and depressed the Catalans in the two-legged 7-0 Champions League humiliation back in April, Brazil broke an era-defining Spain side on Sunday. Shell-shocked Spain were on the back foot from the outset as an electric Maracana inspired the home team to a scintillating start. Brazil came out flying and were ahead within two minutes as Fred profited to fire home a loose ball which should have been cleared by Alvaro Arbeloa with Gerard Pique and Iker Casillas also slow to react. Spain had not conceded in any of their showpiece successes over the last five years, winning the Euro 2008 final 1-0 over Germany, beating Netherlands by the same scoreline at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and thrashing Italy 4-0 to claim Euro 2012 last summer. Now they had to react - but they couldn't. Juan Mat ...
The Fluminense striker struck early in each half, the first a scrappy affair and the second a neat curled finish. Neymar fired home another just before half-time while Spain did not help themselves, with Sergio Ramos missing a penalty before fellow centre-back Gerard Pique was sent off. Brazil gave a raucous Maracana crowd a dream start as with just over a minute on the clock, Fred showed superb presence of mind as in trying to meet Hulk's cross he was buffeted by two defenders. The ball rebounded off Neymar and Spain fullback Alvaro Arbeloa and, flat on his face, Fred managed to improvise and poke the ball past Iker Casillas. Spain's goalkeeper was almost caught out by Paulinho's 13th-minute lob, back-pedalling to palm the ball off the line before falling gratefully on the loose ball. Arbeloa was then booked for a cynical pull on Neymar. The Barcelona new boy would have had a clear run on goal, sparking Brazilian claims for a red card despite the challenge taking place in the centre circle. That sparked ...

Alvaro Arbeloa : “It’s very difficult to mark players like him (Neymar) It’s practically impossible to make sure that he doesn’t get a shot on goal during the 90 minutes - or create danger, or dribble past you.It’s a nice challenge to pit yourself up against the world’s best players and I personally don’t mind being in the spotlight at all.If you put in a decent game, it’s recognised but I know it’s going to be a difficult mission for me."

Arbeloa hits the 50 match mark with the Spanish squad Alvaro Arbeloa participated in Spain’s third match-up in this year’s Confederations Cup, hitting the 50 game mark with the squad against Nigeria. The Real defender debuted in March 2008 and has been a regular on the national team since. His resume includes a World Cup (2010) and two European Championships (2008 and 2012). Arbeloa, who also participated with the team in the 2009 Confederations Cup (Spain finished third), is immersed in the fight for first in this year’s competition in Brazil. Arbeloa debuted with Spain’s national side on 26 March 2008 in a friendly against Italy that ended in a 1-0 win for Spain. Since then, the defender has been a fixture in La Roja matches. His first major tournament was the European Championship in 2008; Spain was crowned champion. The following summer Arbeloa formed part of the team that played in the Confederations Cup in South Africa, where Spain finished third, and went on to win Spain’s first World Cup ...

Spain won 8-0 in a group stage that ended with Tahiti winless, pointless and with 21 unanswered goals conceded. Current Spain squad members Jordi Alba and Cesar Azpilicueta both started that game in Egypt, as did seven of Tahiti's Confederations Cup squad. Tahiti Tahiti avoided equalling the biggest Confederations Cup losing margin by one goal against Nigeria. Brazil have twice won by six goals in previous tournaments, 8-2 v Saudi Arabia (1999) and 6-0 v Australia (1997). Tahiti won all five of their Oceania Nations Cup games to qualify for the Confederations Cup. Since then the Toa Aito have lost six of their last seven.

Steve Finnan. Probably one of the best right backs of our clubs history. Naturally a great player and was a brilliant full back along with Riise. Finnan was great defensively, but could attack well, and even popped up with a goal now and again. Was a fantastic servant to the club since his move from Fulham up until Alvaro Arbeloa made his name as the first choice right back. -coutinho

Real Madrid FULLBACK ARBELOA: SPEAKING WELL OF MOURINHO HAS LEFT ME FULL OF HOLES! Real Madrid fullback Alvaro Arbeloa stands by his praise for former coach Jose Mourinho. The former Liverpool fullback admits his support of the new Chelsea manager has resulted in a major backlash. "When you talk about Mou, I did what I felt, not because I was thinking of leaving Real Madrid. Often it seems to be sacrilege to speak well of Mourinho, but I do from the experience I have had for three years living and working every day with him," said Arbeloa. "I have received so many shots that I look like a sieve, but I have a very clear conscience and I am not a traitor." On his relationship with Iker Casillas, Arbeloa continued: "We do not have the unity we had. The day will come when that will be fixed, eventually an occasion will arrive to talk to the face. "This has nothing to do with Mourinho. It's between us two." My take Blessed are they who speak and stand for the TRUTH for they shall obtain mercy from the most hig ...
Vicente Del Bosque, the man who carried Pep's experiments to the extreme, talks about the Confederations Cup. He won with 6 midfielders and no striker. Vicente Del Bosque says David Villa will start up front for Spain in Tuesday night's friendly against Ireland, but that does not mean the Barcelona attacker is necessarily first choice for the upcoming Confederations Cup. Villa, who is Spain's all-time record goalscorer, missed Euro 2012 with a broken leg, allowing Cesc Fabregas to impress in a 'false nine' role as La Roja claimed the trophy. Fernando Torres - top scorer in that tournament despite only starting two games - and Roberto Soldado are also options for Del Bosque for the tournament in Brazil. The veteran coach, who spent much of his pre-match press conference attempting to play down rumours of a feud between Spain and Real Madrid team-mates Iker Casillas and Alvaro Arbeloa, said that he was still mulling his various attacking options, while pointing out that defensive security was just as import ...

I will be Chelsea manager by the end of the week! Jose heads to Stamford Bridge with parting shot for Ronaldo as Madrid's dressing-room war is exposed at bitter end By PETE JENSON Jose Mourinho has confirmed he will take charge of Chelsea later this week. 'I'm going to London on Monday and at the end of the week I will be the manager of Chelsea,' he said to leading Spanish TV football show Punto Pelota. 'I feel the people there love me and in life you have to look for that. 'Life is beautiful and short and you must look for what you think is best for you.' Never have the words ‘the bitter end’ been more apt as Mourinho took charge of his last game at Real Madrid before returning to Chelsea. He left the Bernabeu on Saturday night without saying goodbye to Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe and Iker Casillas, having suggested all three had deliberately ruled themselves out of his last game in charge. And as if to underline the divisions, Alvaro Arbeloa — one of the players who had stayed loyal to Mourinho in wha ...

Real Madrid 4-2 Osasuna: Benzema beauty sees Mourinho bow out as Blancos boss with a win Los Blancos let a two-goal lead slip as the Portuguese's final game as manager threatened to end in disarray, but Karim Benzema and Jose Callejon ensured no upsets late on By Keeghann Sinanan Jun 1, 2013 12:52:00 PM José Mourinho, Real Madrid Jose Mourinho brought the curtain down on his tumultuous three-year reign as Real Madrid manager with a 4-2 triumph over Osasuna in its La Liga finale at the Bernabeu on Saturday. The Portuguese was the center of attention long before kickoff, with throngs of photographers swarming to get a glimpse of the 50-year-old on the touchline, and first-half goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Michael Essien set him on his way to a winning send off. Osasuna threatened to spoil the occasion with second-half strikes from Roberto Torres and Alvaro Cejudo to restore parity, but Karim Benzema put the hosts back in front before a late Jose Callejon effort sealed a victorious end to a disappointing ...

Alvaro Arbeloa: "It was a shame not to have fought till the end."
Mou has always put the club over himself. I don’t know if anyone in the club can say the same thing.” —  Alvaro Arbeloa.
Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa has launched a stinging attack on his team-mates for lacking 'maturity' during the Jose Mourinho led era at the Bernabeu. "Yes, it's a shame that Mourinho is leaving because he has given his life for the club." he told Gol Television. "He has sacrificed a lot for this club, and he has suffered. Mourinho has enjoyed some success at Madrid - winning the Copa del Rey in 2011 before capturing the league last season - but a trophy-less season, and his feuding with Madrid captain Iker Casillas, stained his final season.
MADRID: Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho was booed by the majority of a sparse home crowd as he ended his controversial three-year spell in charge with a 4-2 win over Osasuna. Champions Barcelona rounded off their campaign with a 4-1 win over Malaga to match Real's league record of 100 points from last season on the final day. Mourinho's name was met with a chorus of whistles when it was read out before kick-off, but he did receive support from a small group of the club's ultra fanbase who chanted his name throughout. The 50-year-old, widely expected to return to Chelsea, did not appear at the post-match news conference, leaving veteran defender Alvaro Arbeloa to have the final say on the controversial manager. "We respect his decision, the club's too, and wish him well. We all know that we have taken a major leap in competitiveness and we knew we could have achieved a lot, but due to small details or bad luck it was not to be," he said. "He has had his successes and failures, as we have all had but he g ...

Alvaro Arbeloa has slammed Real Madrid's playing squad this season for selfishness this season, while defending the departing Jose Mourinho from the harsh criticism he faced this season.
Carvajal to rejoin Real Madrid Bayer Leverkusen defender Daniel Carvajal will rejoin Real Madrid next season following Los Blancos’ decision to buy the player back. Although it has not been made official Carvajal already knows he will make a return to the Santiago Bernabeu next term, according to Marca, having signed a five-year deal at Leverkusen in July 2012 with Real having a buy-back clause inserted. The 21-year-old, who came through the club’s youth system, will be the first signing for Madrid’s new project with Jose Mourinho due to depart this weekend, and it was revealed the decision was taken some months ago when it was known the Portuguese would be leaving. It is believed Mourinho was the chief obstacle to Carvajal’s return and he will now have to compete with the likes of Alvaro Arbeloa and Michael Essien for the problematic right-back spot. The fee for the youngster will be around the €8m mark, with Leverkusen thought to be ready to raid Madrid’s second string again after showing in ...
Look if Madrid or Barca came in for any player in the world then most would find it difficult to turn down.. As it stands Suarez has told everyone at the club that he is happy to give the club another year.. Of course things change but i believe he will still be with us come the end of the transfer window.. If you read his latest interview he still says he is happy.. Finally if Barca do come in for Pepe he will leave, it is pretty much tied up already but if for some reason it falls through he will not go anywhere else.. source macca from his info is right 98% of the time °toes°©
Maybe this isn't why I am the Liverpool manager but if Suarez is sold then some striking conbinations I would bid for are the following: - Gonzalo Higuain £23 Million - Javier Chicharito Hernandez £20 Million - Shane Long £12 Million - Sebastion Giavinco £15 Million - Loic Remy £7 Million - Cavani £37 Million - Mario Gomez £25 Million Do you have strikers in mind not mentioned?
