Louis Van Gaal on his two-year retirement deadline, Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel Di Maria
Arsene Wenger has revealed Arsenal missed out on signing Angel Di Maria for NOTHING. Argentinian superstar Di Maria, 26, joins a long list of big names - including Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Yaya Toure and Zlatan Ibrahimovic - who nearly joined the Gunners when they were youngsters. Di Maria cost a British record £59.7m when he moved from Real Madrid to Manchester United in the summer, but Wenger admitted they nearly got him when he was just 17. But Wenger says the deal fell through because they could not get Di Maria a work permit - and they now face the same battle as they try to sign Villarreal's Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista. Wenger has called for work permits to be SCRAPPED and borders to be "opened up completely" in football as he claims it is unfair to stop non-European players coming to the Premier League. "We had identified Di Maria when he was 17," he said. "We wanted him to come here. So he goes to Portugal [with Benfica], from Portugal he goes to Spain. Why? Because he could not . ...

12 Jan 2015 20:49:00 International skippers from around the world gave their picks for the prestigious award, with the vast majority backing their team-mates Cristiano Ronaldo won his third Ballon d'Or on Monday, moving one behind the tally of Lionel Messi, who finished second, with Manuel Neuer in Third Place. Voted for by journalists, international captains and coaches, Ronaldo was not everyone's top choice, however, with several of his fellow players plumping for other stars. CRISTIANO RONALDO 37.66% Lionel Messi 15.76% Manuel Neuer 15.72% Arjen Robben 7.17% Thomas Muller 5.42% Of course, Ronaldo could not vote for himself in his capacity as Portugal captain but rooted for someone close to him, Sergio Ramos, as his first choice, with Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema completing a full card of Real Madrid team-mates. Similarly, Messi went for one of his sparring partners - though not one from Barcelona. Angel Di Maria helped Argentina reach the World Cup final and got his fellow Rosario native's vote, with ...

Chris Bevan at Old Trafford "No prizes for guessing which players got the loudest cheers when their names were read out by the Old Trafford stadium announcer ahead of kick-off. "Nani got a ripple of applause to show he has not been completely forgotten around these parts, but most of the Portugal players were greeted by silence, apart from a certain Cristiano Ronaldo. For Argentina, Angel Di Maria got a decent reception, but it was nothing compared to the cheer that Lionel Messi got."

Rodriguez, Real Madrid top AP Global Football 10 LONDON (AP) — James Rodriguez held off Cristiano Ronaldo to take the top spot in the Associated Press global football 10 poll on Tuesday. Rodriguez scored twice in Real Madrid's 4-0 win over Granada, a result that kept Madrid at the top of the team vote. For the second straight week, Ronaldo is the runner-up to one of his Madrid teammates, despite scoring his 22nd goal of the season. Last week's winner, Karim Benzema, also scored in Madrid's victory but dropped to fifth. Aurelio Capaldi of RAI Sport in Italy praised Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti for getting the best out of Rodriguez so quickly. "Ancelotti is probably living the best time of his coaching career: 11 wins in a row is an amazing result and the way he's making things work after Real Madrid sold Angel Di Maria and Xabi Alonso is impressive," Capaldi said. "This also explains why Rodriguez, who is scoring fabulous goals, already fits well in the team." Bayern Munich's 2-1 comeback win over Boruss ...
Cristiano Ronaldo has paid Angel Di Maria a huge compliment going into today’s Barclays Premier League clash with Chelsea. The world player of the year believes that Manchester United have finally found the man to fill his boots at Old Trafford. Since United sold Ronaldo to Real Madrid for a then world record £80 million they have the lacked the goals, assists and speed on the counter attack that Ronaldo once offered. But the Portugal ace believes they have acquired this skill set in £59.7 million summer signing Di Maria and he’s excited to see what his former team mate can do in today’s clash with Chelsea. Ronaldo and Di Maria became friends during the four years they spent together at the Santiago Bernabéu, to the extent that Ronaldo pleaded with the Champions League winners not to let him leave the club this summer. Di Maria now wears Ronaldo’s old shirt number at Manchester United and so far he’s produced some incredible performances in the illustrious number seven worn by Bryan Robson, G ...
Messi, Costa, Di Maria, Ronaldo, Muller all Ballon d'Or favorites OCTOBER 7, 2014 4:33:11 PM PDT By ESPN staff Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Diego Costa, Angel Di Maria and Thomas Muller are all early contenders for the football's biggest individual award, the Ballon d'Or. We asked ESPN FC's team of experts to tell us which of these five is most deserving, and why. Nicholas Rigg: Is it Ronaldo's to lose? Sure, he was forgettable on the biggest stage in football last summer, but that shouldn't detract from one of the greatest calendar years in recent memory. As if his footing wasn't strong enough, he's been averaging 1.42 goals scored per appearance for Real Madrid since their season kicked off. 1. So, Ronaldo -- there's no way he can lose the Ballon d'Or is there? It is certainly his to lose given the scintillating start he has enjoyed this season. The 29-year-old is the man of the moment and although the award runs over the calendar year, current form plays a crucial part in swaying the floating voter ...
Di Maria: Ronaldo a big influence on my move to Manchester United The Argentina international joined the Red Devils in a British-record €75 million move in the summer and says the Portugal international helped to convince him to go Oct 9, 2014 14:11:00 Angel Di Maria says that Cristiano Ronaldo convinced him to join Manchester United from Real Madrid in the summer. United spent a British-record €75 million to acquire the Argentina international, with his move bringing an end to a successful four years at the Santiago Bernabeu. The winger has now revealed that Ronaldo had a huge say in his decision to move to Old Trafford, with the Portugal international having won the Ballon d'Or during his own spell at the club. "Before we knew I was coming to Manchester, he told me it's a massive club, I would be very happy here and it would be good for me," Di Maria told United's official website when asked about Ronaldo's influence. "At that time we didn't know for sure that I was coming or not so we didn't go int ...
Gallery: Di Maria visits United's museum Our no.7, Angel Di Maria, visited the award-winning Manchester United Museum at Old Trafford this week to learn more about the legendary shirt he now wears. United's Argentinian star was joined at the Museum by team-mate David De Gea, and you can view a gallery of their visit by clicking the main image above. Angel said: "It was great to visit the museum and learn about the club’s history. It's an honour to wear the no.7 shirt that legends like George Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo wore – I hope one day to also be considered a hero for the fans, just like they are." As well as the history of some of United's most talented no.7s, current exhibitions include a look at Best's incredible career, celebrating 10 years of Wayne Rooney and a fascinating examination of wartime United.

Van Gaal wants Coentrao Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal is hoping former Real Madrid ace Angel Di Maria can persuade one-time team-mate Fabio Coentrao to move to Old Trafford. Both players share the same agent, Jorge Mendes, who also represents Cristiano Ronaldo. Source: Daily Express Your thoughts considering the amount of LB we have?
Opinion: I believe in Angel Sunday's match at Leicester City may have, ultimately, been a terrible disappointment but I must admit there was a moment when I realised Angel Di Maria has the potential to become a Manchester United legend. I found myself wanting him to get on the ball all the time, such was his ability to constantly produce magical pieces of inventive football and, of course, his goal was a thing of majestic beauty. This was only his third appearance for the Reds, and the first one I had not witnessed in the flesh, but he is rapidly emerging as a player capable of becoming as big an idol as Cristiano Ronaldo was here. Without wishing to heap any additional pressure on the South American, it is difficult not to be enthusiastic about what he can achieve at Old Trafford. Every player I have spoken to of late has been blown away by Di Maria's skills in training. Luke Shaw feels the midfielder is among the best five players in the world. Brazilians Rafael and Andreas Pereira may consider Argentin ...

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, right, duels for the ball with Atletico de Madrid's Juan Fran during a Spanish La Liga soccer match at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid, Spain, Sunday, Sept 14 2014 . (AP) The die is being cast. The backroom bargaining may have even begun. However, the most potent hope Manchester United fans have of Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Old Trafford is the fact that Real Madrid have lost. Again. Not just any loss this, but a 2-1 loss to Atletico Madrid, which now leaves them six points behind league leaders Barcelona. Real having lost two of their opening three games of the season and all murmurs about Ronaldo not being happy about the changes at Real are getting louder. The spine of the Real team that allowed CR7 to flourish these past years is gone. Angel Di Maria? Gone. Sami Khedira? Gone. Xabi Alonso? Gone. Mesut Ozil? Gone. Ronaldo made it publicly known that he was not happy to lose some of those players, especially Di Maria. Ronaldo did score his 13th goal against A ...

After a busy summer transfer window and the release of all squad numbers for the 2014/15 season, Manchester United have new incumbents of several red shirts. Among them, loan signing Radamel Falcao will wear no.9, record capture Angel Di Maria has taken no.7 and Belgian starlet Adnan Januzaj is the club’s new no.11. All three will hope to live up to the reputation of some bona fide United legends to have worn those numbers down the years. No.7 is the most iconic of all jerseys at Old Trafford, having been donned by some of the team’s all-time greats, including George Best (who could legitimately lay claim to no.11 as well), Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo. Those five have a combined 1,802 appearances and 563 goals. Sir Bobby Charlton is probably our most famous no.9 and he wore the number for most of his epic, 758-game Reds career. More recently, Andy Cole plundered over a century of goals in the shirt as he helped United win the Treble in 1998/99. Ryan Giggs made the n ...

Wayne Rooney celebrated his appointment as England captain with the winner against Norway on a night when fans turned their back on the team following their dismal World Cup exit.

Full time at the Anoeta. Real Sociedad stage a wonderful comeback against Real Madrid to win 4-2 after going two goals down within the first 11 minutes. Sergio Ramos and Gareth Bale got Los Blancos off to the perfect start but the hosts rallied before the break and levelled through Inigo Martinez and David Zurutuza. The second half was a relatively even affair but Zururuza again and Carlos Vela both netted to make it 4-2.

Cristiano Ronaldo gives his verdict on what reception he'll get when Real Madrid C.F. face Liverpool FC in the UEFA Champions League, as well as Wayne Rooney becoming England Football Team captain, and what he told Angel Di Maria about the number 7 shirt at Manchester United.
Cristiano Ronaldo on Angel Di Maria : "I said to him, 'No.7 is a big responsibility', but I think he will be able to take that shirt because he's a fantastic player."
Depth aside, it’s hard to say why Real Madrid would want to sell Angel Di Maria. At least, that’s the take of teammates Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos, as well as Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone. On Wednesday, La Marca reported that both Ronaldo and Ramos have gone to Madrid president Florentino Perez to ask him to keep Di Maria. Problem is, Di Maria is likely to be sold over the coming week with Manchester United rumored to be coming to the table with a bid upwards of $166 million. That’s a transaction that the overwhelming majority of Galacticos, as well as the fans who gave him a standing ovation upon being substituted onto the pitch during last night’s Spanish Super Cup, don’t want to see happen. When cross-city rival manager Simeone was asked for his post-match thoughts on Di Maria, the Argentine manager sent the room of journalists into uproar. “He’s the Best Player they have,” Simeone deadpanned. But what about Ronaldo, Bale and Rodriguez? The room quaked. “[Di Maria] is ...

Ronaldo leads Uefa Best Player in Europe nominees as Messi is snubbed The 10-man shortlist has been reduced to three, with the Ballon d'Or holder set to battle it out with Bayern Munich duo Arjen Robben and Manuel Neuer for the prize Manuel Neuer, Arjen Robben and Cristiano Ronaldo have been named as the final three nominees for the Uefa Best Player in Europe award. The trio were named as part of an initial 10-man shortlist announced in July, which included Angel Di Maria, Diego Costa, Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, Philipp Lahm, James Rodriguez and Thomas Muller. Current Ballon d'Or holder Ronaldo has now been voted into the final three, along with Bayern Munich's star winger Robben and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who added the World Cup to his Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal successes last season, but Barcelona's Argentine star could only finish fifth in the voting.

Ronaldo will be ready within a week - Ancelotti The Italian says the Portugal star, along with James Rodriguez, Toni Kroos and Angel Di Maria, will be in contention to start the Uefa Super Cup on August 14 Carlo Ancelotti says Cristiano Ronaldo will be ready for a full return to action for Real Madrid after another week of training. Los Blancos crashed out of the Guinness International Champions Cup on Saturday following a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United, and have scored just twice in three matches in the absence of Ronaldo and a host of stars given extended leave following their World Cup exploits. The Portuguese superstar did make a surprise appearance as a substitute late in the second half, however, and Ancelotti believes another week training with the rest of the squad could see him back to peak fitness. "The team is not accustomed to playing without Cristiano Ronaldo, but it is normal that we are going through this," he told reporters after the match. "We can't be ready in the position ...
Barcelona star Lionel Messi is one of 10 players who have been nominated for the Best Player in Europe award after guiding Argentina to the final of the World Cup. The prolific attacker was controversially handed the World Cup Golden Ball earlier this month ahead of Bayern Munich duo Thomas Muller (Germany) and Arjen Robben (Netherlands) and is now in the frame to bag yet another prestigious individual award. The 10-man shortlist for the prize is dominated by Bayern Munich players, with Philipp Lahm and Manuel Neuer accompanying the aforementioned Muller and Robben. Real Madrid have two representatives on the list in Portugal attacker Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentina's Angel Di Maria, while Colombia star James Rodriguez is the only candidate from Ligue 1. Luis Suarez and Diego Costa, who both switched clubs this summer, complete the shortlist.

Bale: This is what I dream of (PA) Saturday 24 May 2014 Share Gareth Bale insisted that he and his team-mates always believed they could come back to win the UEFA Champions League, despite being behind for most of the final in Lisbon. After Diego Godin put Atletico in front nine minutes before half time, Diego Simeone's side looked destined to get their hands on the trophy but Sergio Ramos popped up in the 93rd minute to send it to extra-time. The crucial moment came five minutes into the second period of extra-time when Bale himself nodded home at the far post after good work from Angel Di Maria. Disappointingly for Atletico, they collapsed after that, with Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo making it 4-1 to take the title back to the Bernabeu. "For us when we play our own football we win matches and it was literally just about attacking and keep doing what we do best," Bale told Sky Sports 1. "We believe in that and we believed if we kept doing that we would win." During normal time it looked like being a fr ...
Much has been speculated regarding the future of Real Madrid winger 'Angel Di Maria' following the £86m arrival of Gareth Bale from Spurs last summer. During the last January transfer window there was even more debate whether Di Maria would decide that it was then the right time to move on. However, the Argentine declared that he didn’t want to leave, which strongly hinted that he was unsettled at the Bernabeu and wanted to stay and fight for his place. This raises the question to how much further can he get when you have the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale in front of you..There is no doubt that Di Maria is an incredibly talented player but he is up against the Best Player in the world right now in Ronaldo and the next best in the world in the shape of Bale. After all, the Welshman isn’t the most expensive player in history for nothing. This being said, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has most certainly not disregarded Di Maria from his plans this season but has decided to alter his role by ad ...

But the way the title is going to the wire with all three leaders and contenders Atletico Madrid, Barcelona (I do not know if dem own be Real or Athletico Barcelona) and Real Madrid all failed to win their matches today. Real got the short end of the stick by getting beaten by Celta Vigo 2-0. Celta who? I have never heard of them before (I no know book oooh). Well may be they have conceded the title and now want to conserve energy for the Champions League finals against Athletico. However, this might not be so since Cristiano Ronaldo, Angel Di Maria, Pepe, Raphael Varane and Karim Benzema are reported injured and Gareth Bale is supposed to be sick! Advantage Atletico? But Athletico only fared slightly better because they could only manage to force Malaga to a 1-1 draw which was sufficient to ...

Despite the home side winning 1-0 at the Bernabeu, defending champions Bayern enjoyed 72% possession. "I expected more from Real," said the Former Chelsea forward Robben. "I expected them to come storming out of the gates, but instead they waited and allowed us to run the game. That surprised me." Karim Benzema scored the only goal of the game but Mario Gotze and Thomas Muller both had excellent chances to equalise late on for Pep Guardiola's side, who lacked a cutting edge. Real were also wasteful in front of goal, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel Di Maria both spurning good chances. "I'm proud of my team," said Bayern's ex-Barcelona coach Guardiola. "They showed a lot of strength against one of the best teams in the world. I think that we can still crank up a gear or two in the return leg. "We wanted to have a lot of posse ...

Cristiano Ronaldo was left on the Real Madrid bench for Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final, second leg against Borussia Dortmund at the Westfalenstadion. The world player of the year picked up a knee injury in last Wednesday’s 3-0 first-leg win in the Spanish capital and then pulled out of training in Germany on Monday after just 20 minutes. Coach Carlo Ancelotti instead moved Angel Di Maria into the Madrid attack alongside Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, while Asier Illarramendi was brought into the midfield in place of Isco. Dortmund welcomed back Poland striker Robert Lewandowski, who missed the first leg due to suspension, but coach Jurgen Klopp was forced to name a make-shift pairing in central midfield. With captain Sebastian Kehl suspended and Nuri Sahin, who has been struggling with a back injury, only on the bench, Klopp handed starts to Oliver Kirch and recent signing Milos Jojic. German internationals Sven Bender and Ilkay Gundogan are also out injured. Starting line-ups in the Champio ...

Sports Update, Gareth Bale scored his first goal in six weeks as Real Madrid powered their way past Real Betis, recording a resounding 5-0 win to go joint-top of the Primera Division. • Train: Real enjoy a stroll in the sun The Welshman sent a left-footed free-kick into the net midway through the first half after Cristiano Ronaldo had opened the scoring with a thunderous strike from over 30 yards out. Karim Benzema then widened the scoreline even further before the break, taking advantage of a fine move from Luka Modric, and in the second half Angel Di Maria scored his second goal in as many games before substitute Alvaro Morata piled further misery on Liga whipping boys Betis. The Andalusians have taken just one point in six league games under Juan Carlos Garrido, who succeeded Pepe Mel - now in charge at West Bromwich Albion - at the start of December, and speculation has been growing that Betis' directors are planning on changing coach yet again. Betis took all three points against Jose Mourinho's Ma ...
Benzema's 100th Real Madrid goal helped his side cruise to a comfortable 5-0 win at bottom club Real Betis on Saturday. The visitors' start to 2014 was unblemished coming into this match after winning all four of their matches in all competitions without conceding a single goal and Betis rarely threatened that record. A wonderful early strike from Cristiano Ronaldo took the Ballon d'Or winner's tally for the season to 31 goals and the Madrid club did not have to wait long for a second as Gareth Bale buried a free-kick in the 25th minute. Benzema ensured the first half ended in even more despair for Betis, converting after good play by Luka Modric, and a fourth arrived just after the hour mark when Angel Di Maria produced a sublime finish from distance. Substitute Alvaro Morata added a fifth late on as rampant Madrid extended their unbeaten run to 17 matches in all competitions to haul themselves level with Barcelona and Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga. Osasuna were Betis' conquerors in their previou ...

Madrid's midfield is currently being dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, with Angel Di Maria a popular substitute choice. Isco has been an unused subs in Real's last two matches; the 3-2 La Liga win over Rayo Vallecano and, more recently and ominously, the crucial Champions League victory over Juventus. The 21-year-old Spain midfielder came to prominence at Malaga over two seasons when he was coached by Manuel Pellegrini who is now manager at Manchester City and Arsene Wenger is a long-term admirer and proved with the capture of Mesut Ozil that he is happy to splash the cash on the right talent. Real paid around £25m for Isco's services in August but that was before the club smashed the world record transfer fee of £86m paid to Tottenham for Gareth Bale who has forced the Spanish playmaker down the pecking order.

Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo saw Real Madrid all but book their place in the last 16 of the Champions League after beating 10-man Juventus 2-1 at the Bernabeu. Los Blancos produced a far from convincing performance even after Giorgio Chiellini was given a straight red card on 48 minutes for an elbow on Ronaldo. The Portuguese forward gave Madrid the lead four minutes into the game but Spanish striker Fernando Llorente equalised after 23 minutes before Ronaldo restored the hosts' lead five minutes later from the penalty spot. Iker Casillas was called into action barely a minute after kick-off, tipping a long-range shot from Claudio Marchisio over the bar. But it was Madrid who took the lead as Ronaldo beat the offside trap to get onto the end of a throughball from Angel Di Maria and calmly rounded Gianluigi Buffon to slot into an empty net. Juventus did not drop off after the goal and Carlos Tevez had two shots off target, with Martin Caceres also volleying over before Llorente levelled after 23 minute ...
Cristiano Ronaldo, Angel Di Maria and Jesus Fernandez on their way to Turin
Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti believes it is Cristiano Ronaldo's time to win the Ballon d'Or this year, ahead of Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery. The Portuguese star has played second fiddle to Barcelona ace Messi since winning the prize for the first time back in 2008, with the Argentine claiming the last four titles in a row, but Ancelotti believes he deserves to win the latest crown for the all-round impact he has on the Spanish giants. "It's Cristiano's moment to win it ahead of Messi and Ribery," Ancelotti told TV programme El Larguero. "He has surprised me the most with his professionalism. He's very serious, he has amazing attention to detail. It's that which helps us the most - he doesn't just score." Ancelotti went on to explain his decision to allow Mesut Ozil to join Arsenal this summer, claiming he prefers Angel Di Maria for the balance he brings to the team alongside €100 million signing Gareth Bale. "It was a technical decision [to sell Ozil]," he continued. "I prefer Di Maria for the ba ...

Ronaldo brace gifts Madrid win Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in the first half to give Real Madrid a 2-1 win over Juventus in a UEFA Champions League game at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday. Gareth Bale was missing from the starting XI as he continued his return from injury. Angel Di Maria, Ronaldo and Karim Benzema played in the front three, with Iker Casillas coming in to replace Diego Lopez between the posts. Tapped in Carlo Ancelotti’s men took the lead in the 4th minute when Di Maria slid a ball through to Ronaldo inside the area, and the Portugal international coolly rounded Gianluigi Buffon and scored. But midway through the half, Juventus drew level when Paul Pogba headed back a Martin Caceres cross at the far post to Llorente, who tapped in for an easy equaliser. Penalty Almost immediately though, the Merengues got themselves back in front from the spot. Giorgio Chiellini pulled down Sergio Ramos inside the area, and Ronaldo smashed home the resulting penalty from 12 yards. The first half e ...
Ronaldo double sinks 10-man Juventus 24 October By Iain Rogers Madrid - Cristiano Ronaldo continued his blistering start to Real Madrid's Champions League campaign when he struck twice in a 2-1 win at home to 10-man Juventus on Tuesday that put Real firmly in charge of Group B. The Portuguese forward's double took his goal tally in Europe's elite club competition to seven in three appearances this season, only the second player to achieve the feat after AC Milan's Filippo Inzaghi. Ronaldo, who has also been on prolific form in La Liga, put Real ahead in fourth minute at the Bernabeu when he sped onto Angel Di Maria's pass, rounded Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and finished superbly from a tight angle. Spain forward Fernando Llorente levelled for the visitors in the 22nd minute before the referee ruled Giorgio Chiellini had impeded Sergio Ramos in the penalty area and Ronaldo put away the 29th-minute spot kick. Italy centre back Chiellini had a night to forget as he was shown a straight red card three m ...
Malaga didn't have the best of times on their last visit to Madrid, as they succumbed to a heavy 6-2 defeat. Raul Albiol, Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric, Angel Di Maria, and Mesut Ozil were all on the scoresheet that day.

Bale played for Tottenham Hotspur as LMF, so this will be his perfect place. - When Xabi & Marceloa will return, we'll have to swap Xabi with Khedira and Marceloa with Coentrao.

A year before he took charge in Madrid, Real had splashed more than £232million on Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Xabi Alonso, Karim Benzema et al. Mourinho then spent around £175m, with the likes of Fabio Coentrao, Angel Di Maria and Luka Modric — among others — all close to £30m each. Including wages topping £200m per season, Mourinho had more than £1BILLION to win the Champions League. - ANTONY KASTRINAKIS But that aside, do you realize this is not a dream match-up as it is made up to be but rather a match-up of convenience? When Roman Abramovich got rid of Roberto Di Matteo, he appointed Benitez as interim manager and went on to hunt for managers. First on his list was Pep Guardiola, and when he failed with that one tried Jurgen Klopp who also turned him down. Jose Mourinho always admired the Old Trafford seat and always wished to replace Sir Alex Ferguson whenever he decided to quit.

Spanish Super Cup: Barcelona 3 Real Madrid 2 Barcelona narrowly defeated Read Madrid 3-2 in the first leg of their Supercopa clash at Camp Nou on Thursday. A cagey first-half saw the home side dominate, but struggle to find a way through a resilient rearguard effort from Jose Mourinho’s men. But the match changed completely in the second half, as Cristiano Ronaldo gave the visitors a shock lead in the 55th minute with a header from a corner. Barca hit back instantly through Pedro, before a Lionel Messi penalty and a beautifully worked goal from Xavi put them in the driving seat. However, a moment of madness from Victor Valdes gifted Angel Di Maria a goal with five minutes to go, leaving matters finely poised for the second leg in six days at Santiago Bernabeu. Madrid started brightly, but were not able to sustain it for long as Barca began to assert their dominance in the middle of the park, with Andres Iniesta in particular looking lively. Messi should have found the target in the 19th minute after lat ...
Real Madrid's La Liga title defence got off to a stuttering start when they dropped two crucial home points in a 1-1 draw with Valencia on a hot Sunday night in the Spanish capital. Gonzalo Higuain put Real ahead on nine minutes before Jonas Goncalves equalised just before the interval for a plucky Valencia side. Jose Mourinho decided to start with Higuain, leaving Karim Benzema on the bench, perhaps to reward the Argentine striker's decision to stay at the club over the summer. Also surprising was Mourinho's decision to start with ex-Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Lass Diarra ahead of Sami Khedira . Valencia's new coach Mauricio Pellegrino started with three new signings in Joao Pereira, Andres Guardado and ex-Madrid midfielder Fernando Gago . The game began with Cristiano Ronaldo taking less than two minutes to show his intent, cutting in from the left to fire a shot narrowly wide, but from that moment on the Portuguese star was subdued. When Angel Di Maria went close on four minutes from long range it ...

Getty Images Real Madrid dispatched AC Milan 5-1 at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday to round off its penultimate match in the World Football Challenge in style. Cristiano Ronaldo stole the show in New York City, finishing off a pair of counterattacks with aplomb to send the Spanish side on its way to a victory that it fully warranted. Angel Di Maria had earlier given Madrid the lead after 25 minutes with a swerving volley, but Robinho stabbed home a surprise equalizer eight minutes later to send the match into the break all square. However, Ronaldo took over in the second half with his brace before a late header from Sergio Ramos and a goal from Jose Callejon at the death put matters beyond any doubt. Karim Benzema and Mesut Ozil were among those handed a start by Mourinho, who fielded a strong group to begin the match, with 22-year-old defender Nacho the only unfamiliar name. Massimiliano Allegri followed suit with his XI, playing a host of regulars, with Kevin-Prince Boateng lining up just behind Robinho an ...

Real Madrid closed in on their first Primera Division title in four years with a 3-0 victory over Sevilla. A bright start from the hosts was rewarded after 19 minutes as Cristiano Ronaldo slotted home his 57th goal of the season. However, Sevilla then enjoyed a decent spell and passed up to glorious opportunities to equalise as Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo both fired over when one-on-one with Iker Casillas. Any nerves among the hosts were settled quickly after the break, though, as Karim Benzema finished twice at the back post after fine crosses from Angel Di Maria and Sergio Ramos. And it means, should Barcelona lose at Rayo Vallecano on Sunday, Madrid will officially be crowned Spanish champions for the 32nd time.

Bayern Munich will meet Chelsea in the Champions League final next month after beating Real Madrid 3-1 on penalties. Bastian Schweinsteiger scored the decisive spot-kick after Manuel Neuer had made two stunning saves to deny Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka. David Alaba and Mario Gomez had sent Iker Casillas the wrong way to put Bayern in control of the shootout, but Real were handed a lifeline as the Spanish captain saved from Toni Kroos and Philipp Lahm. However, after Sergio Ramos had blasted his attempt over the bar, Schweinsteiger was calmness personified as he slammed the ball home to send Bayern into their second final in three years. Real had erased their 2-1 deficit from the first leg within five minutes as Alaba was somewhat harshly punished for handling Angel Di Maria's shot and Ronaldo slotted home the resulting penalty. The visitors responded positively though and should have been level within minutes as Alaba nearly made amends for conceding the penalty with a brilliant run and cross but somehow A ...
