Did Real Madrid just sign the next Lionel Messi in Martin Odegaard? Real Madrid completed the signing of Norwegian wunderkind Martin Odegaard on Thursday for a figure reported to be in the range of $3.4 million. The 16-year-old attacking midfielder has been one of the most sought-after young talents in Europe and in signing him, Real beat out a host of top clubs including Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City. The precocious talent scored five goals and made seven assists in just 15 starts for Norwegian side Stromsgodset and last year became the youngest player ever to play in a European Championship qualifier at the age of just 15 years and 253 days. So it's not difficult to see why Odegaard has generated such excitement.
There are only six clubs in Europe that could feasibly afford to sign Messi, which include Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Paris-Saint Germain and Real Madrid.

Barcelona and Bayern Munich are statistically the best passers in European football, according to the latest Huawei Team Rankings. The Catalan giants are famed for their high pressing and passing style as they look to dominate matches from start to finish. While they have altered their style slightly under Luis Enrique, that core philosophy remains, as no top flight team in the continent has completed more passes in the opponents’ half than the Spanish giants, having made an impressive 6,489 successful passes beyond the halfway line. That figure is almost 600 more than Pep Guardiola’s Bayern have completed in opposition territory (5,896), while Barca’s average possession has been a whopping 70 per cent this term, with the German side leading that category with 71%. Manchester City have racked up 5,406 completed passes in the opposition half so far in the 2014-15 campaign, but their average possession is significantly lower than their Champions League rivals, standing at 60%. Meanwhile, PSG’s recor ...

Roma0 Manchester City2 Nasri 60′ Zabaleta 86′ Manchester City qualified for the Champions League last 16 for a second successive season as a win at Roma put them through alongside Group E winners Bayern Munich. Samir Nasri scored from 25 yards after the break before Pablo Zabaleta fired in from close range. Earlier Joe Hart tipped Gervinho's strike wide before touching Kostas Manolas's header onto the post. Bayern beat CSKA Moscow 3-0 to confirm City's qualification. It completed a remarkable turnaround for the Premier League champions, who looked to be heading out of the competition after failing to win any of their first four games.

City, who had to win a European match in Italy for the first time, were without skipper Vincent Kompany, who failed a late fitness test, the suspended Yaya Toure and in ...

Not only did they lose to two first-half goals from Seydou Doumbia, they also saw midfielders Fernandinho and Yaya Toure sent off after the break and ruled out of their next home game against Bayern Munich. Toure had equalised Doumbia's first goal but that was a rare high spot in a dismal performance by Manuel Pellegrini's side, who simply cannot solve the Champions League puzzle. City now have no wins and only two points from four group games, and must beat Bayern and win at Roma to stand any chance of progression.

Last week Wenger’s future as the manager of the Gunners was the object of speculation. Carlo Ancelotti and Paul Clement where discussed as potential successors. But the Evening Standard says Guardiola has emerged as a more serious option and Arsenal will look to move for him in 2016. Guardiola states that he is leaving Bayern for a new challenge presumably at the Premier League. The former Barcelona boss is expected to head Chelsea, Manchester City or Manchester United. Guardiola signed a three-year contract at Bayern but according to the rumours he has no wish to stay longer after 2016.

FULL TIME : BAYERN MUNICH 1 - 0 Manchester CiTY The England goalkeeper was finally beaten late on having kept out Pep Guardiola's side for the majority of the 90 minutes as City suffered defeat in their group stage opener. Jerome Boateng scored a dramatic late winner as Bayern Munich kicked off their Champions League campaign with a 1-0 victory over Manchester City. City goalkeeper Joe Hart frustrated the Bundesliga champions for long periods of the Group E opener at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday, as Bayern looked set to start the group stages with a draw.

Hart had pulled off a string of fine saves from Thomas Mueller, David Alaba, Goetze and Boateng but the England international was finally beaten as Bayern earned a deserved win in their opening Group E fixture. Manchester City had come back from two goals down to beat Bayern 3-2 at the same venue in last season's group stages and they started with Edin Dzeko, who has yet to score this season, leading the attack instead of Sergio ...

Real Madrid are Champions League favourites, says Lahm The former Germany international says the club's summer outlay, which included the signing of Toni Kroos from Bayern, makes them the side to beat in Europe Sep 15, 2014 00:02:19 Bayern Munich skipper Philipp Lahm believes that Real Madrid enter this season's Champions League as favourites after winning the competition last year.

CLOSER LOOK AT THE Champions League DRAW: Kind draw Chelsea seem like the most obvious candidates to do well this season, considering they have a squad strong enough to have made them most people’s favourites to win the Premier League title this season. In recent years, The Blues have been lucky in the draw and this year was no exception with the club getting arguably the easiest draw of all the English teams in Schalke, Sporting Lisbon and Maribor. Manager Jose Mourinho is also well experienced in this competition and his side are unlikely to trip up, with the trip to Germany likely to be their most difficult game. The draw has been reasonably kind to them in terms of travel times as well with the furthest trip being the one to face the Slovenian Champions. Difficult Manchester City fans on the other hand must think there is a conspiracy to see them struggle in Europe, as they were handed the trickiest group of all the English sides. Bayern Munich are many people’s favourites to win the tournament an ...

Former Everton boss Moyes, who was identified by Ferguson as his chosen successor at United, had a disastrous 10 months in the Old Trafford hot-seat before being sacked in April.

As usual, much revolves around the traditional big players in the transfer market – Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United, with Arsenal and Liverpool also trying to pretend they’re in the same league. The high rollers of the last few years – Manchester City, Chelsea, PSG and Monaco – seem a little more guarded so far. In Chelsea’s case, that would appear to be because they’ve already got their main targets signed, sealed and delivered. Anyway, here goes with the latest tapestry of speculation and intrigue. It appears Toni Kroos (who is allegedly leaving Bayern Munich because they won’t double his salary) has an agreement with Real Madrid. Reports suggest Chelsea want to “hijack” it, but I suspect that’s more in hope ...
Dear USA, your national team is in no comparison to Belgium so there's no need to be upset. Belgium is a world class team. They have players alone that are worth more than the entire USA squad...for example; Eden Hazard, one of the most profilic and young superstars in Europe that plays for Chelsea. Kevin De Bruyne, young rising star who played for Chelsea and is currently at Wolfsburg. Vincent Kompany, one of the best defenders in the world playing for Manchester City. Daniel Van Buyten, veteran defender who has been playing for Bayern Munich since 2006. Alex Witsel, midfielder who got transferred to Zenit for 40 million Euros. Fellaini who plays for Manchester United and is one of the best holding midfielders in the world.

GOOD MORNING CHELSEA FAMILY Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport claimed on Tuesday that Chelsea had sent an agent to talk to Serie A Club AS Roma about a possible summer transfer. The famous pink Italian newspaper claim that Jose Mourinho's Chelsea have thrown their hat into the ring for much wanted defender Mehdi Benatia. Manchester City were linked with a move for the defender for some weeks and reportedly made a bid for him, having it refused, Gazzetta say the same has happened with Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich who they claim has offered €33m.

Confirmed Spain 23man Squad for Brazil. Surprise, surprise... Nando makes the cut. Vincent Del Bosque has whittled his initial 30 man Spain World Cup squad down to the final 23, cutting seven players from his initial squad. Injury robbed the Spain boss of Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara, but an embarrassment of riches across the park means that the squad contains some notable omissions. Manchester City pair Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo both miss out, with the latter being omitted in favour of Chelsea forward Fernando Torres. At the back, Del Bosque has kept all four of his initial centre backs, but has cut two of his full backs. Liverpool target Alberto Moreno and Real Madrid full back Daniel Carvajal have both been dropped from the initial squad, with Cesar Azpilicueta staying in as cover for both full back positions. In midfield, Navas and Thiago are joined on the plane home by Bilbao’s Ander Iturraspe, while Premier League trio David Silva, Juan Mata and Santi Cazorla have all made the cu ...

Paul Scholes has urged Manchester United to make Toni Kroos their top transfer target, but has warned that the club need to bring in 'five or six' new players. The Old Trafford outfit are reported to have agreed a £20million deal for the Bayern Munich midfielder while David Moyes was still at the helm, with new boss Louis Van Gaal giving his approval for the move to go ahead. Former United and England midfielder Scholes believes that the Germany international is just one of several players executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward needs to land if they are to return to challenging for honours.

Manchester United's potential Target list- 1 Luke Shaw – Southampton, price £30m The 18-year-old left-back brings blistering pace, attacking threat and a rawness that should thrill the Old Trafford crowd. And at the prospective fee, Shaw represents a bargain and coup because if fitness and contentment are retained the club may acquire a top-drawer performer for the next 15 years. 2 Mats HummelsBorussia Dortmund, £25m-30m Louis Van Gaal hopes to do much of his shopping in the Bundesliga and in Hummels the Dutchman sees a 25-year-old Germany central defender who can help fill the void left by the departures of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand. 3 Toni Kroos – Bayern Munich, £35- 40m The 24-year-old can operate in box-to-box mode, as a No10, or in more metronomic style, prompting the attack from deep: all of which is why Van Gaal and United have identified him as a solution to the perennial issue of the club’s central midfield deficit. 4 Thomas Müller – Bayern Munich, £35m Another of Bayern ...

Luis Felipe Scolari has left Miranda, Philippe Coutinho, Lucas Moura and Robinho out of his Brazil squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. There had been speculation Miranda, who has been in outstanding form for Atletico Madrid, would receive his first international call-up in over a year, but Scolari opted to name Napoli's Henrique as his fourth center back. "He's a player I have a lot of trust in," Scolari said of Henrique. Fellow defenders Dede, Filipe Luis, Marquinhos, Rafinha and Rever were left disappointed, as was Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva. The latter's Anfield teammate Coutinho has been in superb for this season, but Scolari elected to include just two attacking midfielders in Chelsea pair Oscar and Willian. The 65-year-old called Rafinha and Fernandinho up for the first time for Brazil's most recent friendly – the 5-0 win in South Africa in March – but while the Manchester City midfielder retained his place, Inter veteran Maicon was preferred to the Bayern Munich man.

"Louis Van Gaal has been a very good coach in many clubs but his style is very difficult. The same thing happened to him in Barcelona as in Bayern Munich. He is very tough, people don't like him, but he wins. And one day you don't win -- and when you don't win, everybody that is angry with you will come back to you and try to kill you.

Ricky Van Wolfwinskel (the new Huntelaar) will shine in the EPL. 7. Bayern Munich will EASILY win the German Bundesliga. 8. La Decima will happen this year if we get to the finals. 9.

I have never conceded a goal whilst playing for Barcelona, Bayern Munich, or Manchester City. I have never lost a cup game, or not kept a clean sheet either, whist playing for either of those teams. It is for that reason that Hodgson should consider me for the England squad. -Corporal
Did Josep Guardiola make that invincible Barcelona team or inherited it from Frank Rijkaard. He achieved greatness with the Blaugrana team thats a fact. He quit and now he is at Bayern Munich. He had again inherited a very good winning squad and I should not be a surprise should he achieve lots again. The question is should all th credit be given to him or his predecessors. Where next for Pep I bet its Manchester City or another project in the making.
Manchester City players world's top earners - study shows Footballers with English Premier League club Manchester City are the most highly-paid athletes in global sport, according to a study published on Wednesday.

Taken from United Rant Moyes 50 failings in 50 games April 12, 2014 by Ed 54 Comments It has, without hint of hyperbole, been the most disastrous season at Manchester United in a quarter-century. Transition from Sir Alex Ferguson may have proven difficult whomever was appointed at the club, but in David Moyes there is an increasing body of evidence that the club’s executive has made a serious mistake. After all “transition” is a word that can be applied to Manchester City, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Chelsea to different levels of success or failure this season. But Moyes it is – and the Scot has undoubtedly made mistakes across his 50 games in charge. From pre-season planning, to transfer farce, coaching methodology and those oh so very odd press conferences – Rant takes a look. In no particular order of importance. PRE-SEASON 1. Pre-season purgatory When Rant argued back in August that United’s pre-season focused too strongly on marketing, with too few quality opponents schedul ...

Juventus must snub struggling Osvaldo and sign a real top-class forward this summer -SOCCER GIST- The Bianconeri are too over-reliant on Carlos Tevez and will be committing a huge error if they execute their option to retain the on-loan Southampton striker The summer is a pretty predictable period when it comes to football. Real Madrid cause widespread outrage by publicly pursuing a superstar, Bayern Munich weaken all of their Bundesliga rivals, while Juventus regularly fail in their quest to sign one of the planet's best strikers. The upcoming transfer market is unlikely to be any different with regards to Madrid and Bayern, but the Bianconeri simply cannot allow another Sergio Aguero or Robin van Persie to slip through their fingers. Last year's capture of Carlos Tevez from Manchester City for a cut-price €10 million was actually one of the bargains of 2013. The Argentine is enjoying an outstanding domestic season – joint top-scorer in Serie A with 18 goals as Juventus charge towards a third success ...
Champions League wide open as Pep's Bayern struggle again -SOCCER GIST- The Bundesliga champions reached the semi-finals at the expense of Manchester United, but the unstoppable machine from the start of the season is slowing down Although no team has won back-to-back Champions League titles since the rebranding of the competition in 1992, title-holders Bayern Munich started the season as red-hot favourites to retain their trophy. The Bundesliga giants quickly affirmed their status as Europe’s standout team with some indomitable performances in the group stages, most notably in the 3-1 away victory at Manchester City, but they have been struggling to live up to the high expectations in the knockout stages. After failing to impress against Arsenal in the round of 16, they were caused even more problems in the quarter-finals by a Manchester United side at their lowest ebb for a quarter of a century. Pep Guardiola’s men came away from Old Trafford with a hard-fought 1-1 draw in the first leg and fared li ...
