World Cup Review (Saturday) Germany and Brazil already booked their places in the semi finals, who would join them? Argentina v Belgium The last time Argentina won the World Cup, they beat Belgium on the way (albeit in the semi finals that time). Belgium on the other hand was hoping to get a win to at least match their best performance in a World Cup that was in 1986. Like in the previous two quarter finals, there was an early goal. This time not from a set piece, but from a mistake by the normally reliable Vincent Kompany. The Manchester City defender carelessly conceded possession to the one man you do not want to concede possession to. Lionel Messi. Messi spun away from two would be tacklers before passing to Angel Di Maria. Di Maria’s pass was deflected towards Gonzalo Higuain who swivelled before volleying past Thibaut Courtois on 8 minutes. Messi was again proving why he’s such a valuable player for Argentina as he danced his way through Belgium’s defence before being brought down on the edge ...
Barca told to pay €70m for Higuain? Napoli won’t consider selling Gonzalo Higuain for less than €70m amid reports of interest in the striker from Barcelona. AS cite claims from Gazzetta dello Sport that say Barca have bid €55m for the former Real Madrid forward but Napoli President Aurelio de Laurentiis will only let him go for substantially more. Higuain moved to San Paolo from Santiago Bernabeu last summer but speculation has mounted that Barca have identified the Argentina international as the front man to lead the line under Luis Enrique. Napoli paid €40m and got 24 goals in 46 games in return. Higuain has emerged as Barca’s preferred signing after it became clear Sergio Aguero would remain at Manchester City and the move has the backing of Lionel Messi. The clubs announced today they would play a pre-season friendly on August 6, in Geneva, with Higuain mentioned by de Laurentiis as one of the Napoli players who will take part.
arsene's wild child The professorial Arsenal manager and the wild child of Italian football would make for the oddest of odd couples but the attraction, on both sides, is obvious. For Balotelli, this latest incarnation of Wenger's Arsenal is at the perfect stage of its evolution to help bring out the best in him. Pace, dynamism and vision are the hallmarks of a midfield that too often have seen their geometric approach work go to waste ever since Olivier Giroud was plucked from Montpellier to replace Robin Van Persie. Unlike at Manchester City, the 23-year-old would not be competing with three equally gifted strikers for a starting place, while a supporting cast of Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey would share the creative and goalscoring responsibilities that lie almost solely on his shoulders at Milan. For Wenger, the concerns over the player's temperament aside, Balotelli is, at his best, every inch the striker that his side require. Brute strength and devastating finishing are his trademarks b ...
Arsene Wenger will meet with Mario Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola on Saturday as Arsenal close in on the £25 million signing of the Italy striker, Goal understands. Wenger is currently in Brazil working as a pundit for French TV and will hold talks with super-agent Raiola in an attempt to broker Arsenal's first major deal of the summer. Wenger is ready to spend up to £25m on the 23-year-old former Manchester City striker, who has scored 28 goals in 51 appearances for AC Milan since returning to Serie A in January 2013. The Gunners boss is understood to be in the market for a marquee striker again this summer after missing out on the likes of Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain 12 months ago, leaving Olivier Giroud as the club’s only recognised senior centre-forward. Raiola revealed earlier on Tuesday that "anything is possible" as regards to the possibility of Balotelli signing for Arsenal during the close season. "Arsenal are a fantastic club," he told Sky Sports when asked about the report. "Only eight o ...

Napoli v Swansea, 18:00 (0-0) While Swansea certainly had a better home leg than Arsenal or Manchester City did in their European ties there is still a feeling that all the chips are stacked in front of Napoli manager Rafa Benitez right now and the Welsh side will do well to come away from this game with their pride intact. With only four points separating them from the relegation zone there is a good chance that Garry Monk might not commit very much to the effort to qualify anyways, and survival will definitely be worth more than a good Europa Cup run in the long term and when you combine all those factors it seems like Napoli by 3 or more at 7/2 with SkyBet might be worth a look. Jonjo Shelvey will miss Swansea's Europa League match with a hamstring injury, and Michu is still out. Pepe Reina, on loan from Liverpool, will deputise for Napoli goalkeeper Rafael Cabral and Gonzalo Higuain is fit for Rafael Benitez's side. Spurs v Dnipro, 20:05 (0-1) In some ways it is fitting that the Europa League marks th ...

Arsenal must rescue Manchester City's striking prisoner Stevan Jovetic joined Manchester City in July for £22m following months of speculation regarding the Montenegrin's future. Although a plethora of top European clubs were linked with the forward, Arsenal were amongst the favourites to land Jovetic's signature. However, with Arsene Wenger distracted by the pursuit of Gonzalo Higuain and, more hopefully, that of Luis Suarez, the Gunners lost out to the fast moving Manuel Pellegrini. But since his move to Eastlands, Jovetic seems to have taken up a place on the bench and doesn't look like breaking in to the squad any time soon. So far he has started one game in the Premier League and made two appearances from the bench. With the stellar form of both Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo, it looks like Jovetic's opportunities will be limited at the Etihad. It seems strange to sign one of Europe's most coveted forwards for £22m with the intention of putting him on the bench. But when you consider ...
Liga Bargains on offer in Spanish fire sale Which country produces the finest top-level footballers in the world? Spain or Brazil. Which one of those two is in a financial crisis, with indebted football clubs needing to sell their best players? It’s not Brazil. The sales start in Spain on July 1. They used to be only in shops, but now, with football clubs owing the tax agency a combined total of 690 million euros (£593 million), they’re in football too. Most of the leading Spanish clubs were at the Wyscout forum in Barcelona’s Camp Nou last week. It’s like speed-dating for agents to meet clubs. Agents book appointments with clubs from Manchester City to Union Berlin, Juventus to Barcelona, Brighton to Millwall. The clubs' representatives sit on individual tables in a big room and listen as the agents tout their wares, or see which type of players they’re looking for in the future. These are not the super agents selling Gonzalo Higuain or David Villa, but the rest. "It’s a buyers' market," sai ...

Wenger waves red flag to lure Torres Fernando Torres in the red of Arsenal?. Don't adjust your sets, this is the latest in what promises to be another strange month of transfer rumours. According to the Sunday People, Arsene Wenger is keen to at least try and lure the Spaniard to the Emirates, should his attempts to sign Wayne Rooney or Gonzalo Higuain fail. It is believed Jose Mourinho has stamped his authority at Chelsea by only assuring five players of a starting position next season and it turns out Torres isn't one of them. That's given Wenger added impetus to pursue the Blues striker and while it is unlikely Torres and Rooney would line up alongside one another next year, Arsenal are toying with the idea of having Torres and Higuain as strike partners. It seems the world's a stage at Manchester City and potential signings are flying in from all corners of the globe. Sunday People claims Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo is now atop Manuel Pellegrini's wishlist to replace the departed Carlos Tevez and t ...
Real Madrid Join Race For Fiorentina Star by NW | Real Madrid have joined the chase for Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic, according to reports. The Montenegrin has been linked to Juventus, Arsenal and Manchester City but now it appears Carlo Ancelotti has joined the list of coaches interested in the forward. English newspaper The Daily Star have reported that Real Madrid are interested in the striker, who has a €30 million price tag. After Juventus secured a deal for Carlos Tevez it is thought their interest in the Viola player has waned while Arsenal have set their sights on Gonzalo Higuain, meaning that Real Madrid would have a good chance of securing Jovetic’s signature should they make a bid. Real Madrid are also reportedly interested in Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and Napoli’s Edinson Cavani, but Jovetic would be a much cheaper option.

Marca splash with the claim today that Luis Suarez agreed personal terms “weeks ago” on a move to Real Madrid.

La Albiceleste host Colombia on June 7 then travel to play Ecuador four days later in their latest Conmebol group games ahead of next summer's World Cup in Brazil, before visiting Guatemala for a friendly on June 14.

Should Messi withdraw from Alejandro Sabella's 23-man squad for the June triple header then Argentina will not be without first-class replacements - Real Madrid star Gonzalo Higuain, Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and Paris Saint-Germain attacker Ezequiel Lavezzi have all been named in the squad list.

Football - Premier League Paper Round: Liverpool chase Argentina striker Liverpool are in the market for a centre-forward from Argentina in January, say the Daily Mirror – so it is Gonzalo Higuain? Carlos Tevez? Maybe even Leo Messi? Well, not quite. The man Brendan Rodgers is apparently looking to bring to the club is Wigan’s Franco di Santo. The 23-year-old made his international debut last month, playing the second half of a 0-0 draw in Saudi Arabia alongside Messi and Sergio Aguero. Di Santo was on the books at Chelsea when Rodgers was in charge of the youth set-up there, as was Fabio Borini, who Liverpool brought in during the summer. Di Santo’s contract is due to expire in the summer as well, meaning that a deal could be done cheaply. But with Liverpool needing goals, di Santo’s record doesn’t quite bear scrutiny with some of his more illustrious compatriots. Tevez has 80 goals in the top flight since moving to the UK in 2006, while his Manchester City team-mate Aguero has 29 Premier Leagu ...

Real Madrid Vs. Athletic Bilbao, La Liga 2012: Karim Benzema, Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira Could Feature W ith a number of key players back from injury, Real Madrid has better options for its line-up, while Athletic is hit by suspensions and injury. Last week Sami Khedira and Karim Benzema were not training, while German International Mesut Ozil injured his ankle on Levante's sodden pitch. A week later, all have returned and were training normally while Michael Essien, who appears to have picked up a slight muscle strain, was unable to train. When Mourinho picks his first 11 and decides on his substitutions he is bound to have half an eye on next week's fixture in the Champions League (away) against Manchester City. So it will be interesting to see if he chooses to start Sami Khedira , which could be a risk, or substitute him in. A similar question surrounds Karim Benzema. Madrid played Levante with no striker. Gonzalo Higuain remains injured and is expected to be unable to practice for another 2 weeks. Be ...
El Mundo Deportivo says Real's Spanish players - plus Gonzalo Higuain - are on one side, while the Portuguese speakers, including Cristiano Ronaldo, is on the other. Xabi Alonso, for his part, is not aligned with either faction. The blow-up came after defeat at Sevilla. Soymadridista says Real coach Jose Mourinho refused Sergio Ramos' request to stay overnight with his family. The defender blew-up at Mou's decision, complaining to teammates that the same wouldn't happen to Ronaldo. The coach learned of Ramos' comments and axed him for the Champions League victory over Manchester City. The split has been festering for some time and was highlighted by Ronaldo in his infamous meeting with Real president Florentino Perez on September 1. Ronaldo knows no team can compete seriously for titles with such a fractured dressing room. Everything will depend on this season's Champions League campaign. Anything but a victory is likely to see a frustrated Mourinho leave at the end of the season. Read more at
Reports in the media claim that Manchester United will put in a renewed bid for Robin Van Persie before this weekend in order to beat Juventus and Manchester City to his signature. Apparently, Van Persie is skeptical of a move to Juve after the latest match fixing scandal which has now also put Coach Antonio Conte in the eye of the storm. With the Old Lady and their 220,000 pounds a week offer to RVP out of the picture and City unwilling to spend big in the shadow of the upcoming Financial Fair Play regulations, United could be in the driver’s seat for Van Persie. However, Sir Alex Ferguson is unwilling to part with 20 million pounds and meet Arsenal’s valuation. It is thought that United’s bid will be a little above their initial offer believed to be around 15 million pounds. If City are indeed serious about Gonzalo Higuain and have turned their attention away from Van Persie then his price should come down. Plus, if Juventus are out of the race then that would leave United as the only potential su ...
