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.

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 . ...

While we wait to learn who has won the race for the talented teenager, here are 10 things you may not know about him: 1. A sensation from the start Odegaard was just 15 years and 117 days when he was given his league debut against Aaelsund in April. Odegaard marked his debut beating a handful of defenders before passing to team-mate Thomas Sorum to score. 2. The first goal Odegaard eventually scored his first senior goal a month after his debut. It was a cultured finish from just outside the penalty area against Sarpsborg. 3. Fifa 15 mad Liverpool fan Born in the Norwegian city of Drammen, Odegaard is a massive Liverpool fan. 4. Labelled the next ...

Manchester United: The only English club who can really afford Messi? There has been a whole lot of bluster about Lionel Messi over the last few days as he has reportedly fallen out with Barcelona coach Luis Enrique. Areas of the media have suggested that the Best Player ever may be on his way to Chelsea after Messi ‘liked‘ Chelsea FC on Instagram. But, with the new FIFA FairPlay legislation, can Chelsea afford to buy Messi? These new laws fall heavily in favour of ‘old money’ – that is clubs who have built their wealth over a long period of time and consequently have massive annual turnovers. This would suggest that the clubs most likely to be able to afford Messi would perhaps not be Chelsea and City – the biggest spenders in recent history – but Manchester United and Arsenal. In short, the FIFA FairPlay rules state that a club will be in breach if they spend over £105m more than they earn in a three year period. Last year Chelsea’s turnover was just over £300m. Manchester United show ...
At La Masia, his name was mentioned a lot. He’s a teacher here. Lionel Messi     In the last 15 to 20 years the best central midfielder that I have seen — the most complete — is Scholes. I have spoken with Xabi Alonso about this many times. Scholes is a spectacular player who has everything. He can play the final pass, he can score, he is strong, he never gets knocked off the ball and he doesn’t give possession away. If he had been Spanish then maybe he would have been valued more.Xavi   My toughest opponent? Scholes of Manchester United. He is the complete midfielder.Scholes is undoubtedly the best midfielder of his generation. He is simply in a CLASS of his own. Zinedine Zidane   Everywhere I go the coaches all tell me that Scholsey is the player they admire. But if they think they’ll get him they’re wasting their time!

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo once again went eye-to-eye this weekend when both scored a hat trick for their respective sides, but who has been in better goal-scoring form since Ronaldo moved to Spain. View: Gallery: Ronaldo & Messi Hat Tricks Dismantle Oppponents The Former Manchester United star joined Real Madrid in August 2009 and has since scored 200 La Liga goals in 178 games for Los Blancos. In so doing, he became the quickest player to score 200 league goals in Spain, bettering Telmo Zarra’s record of netting 200 strikes 219 games. Lionel Messi reached that same feat in 235 La Liga games, but started his life in Spain’s top- flight aged 17. Ronaldo, meanwhile, moved to Spain when he was 24 already. Messi has managed to score 202 goals over the last six seasons, compared to Ronaldo’s 200, but the Argentine has played four more games. This means Messi has outscored his rival by just two La Liga goals since 2009, while Ronaldo has a minimal better goals-per-game ratio. Read: Why Messi & Ro ...
The top 50 footballers in the world during 2014 [Norwegian football journal Josimar] 989 Share 0 ← Previous Story Next Story → Josimar is a Norwegian football journal, named after the former Brazil international. In their latest issue, they have asked esteemed football journalists to Tor-Kristian Karlsen, Gabriele Marcotti and Philippe Auclair to name their top 50 players in the world during 2014. The 50 have since been reproduced on Reddit, and are listed below. The top three will come as no surprise, with the Ballon d’Or trio of Cristiano Ronaldo, Manuel Neuer and Lionel Messi coming at the top of the list. Many of the rest are difficult to argue with. Perhaps the big bone of contention is that there is no Wayne Rooney, despite some fine displays from the Manchester United striker this season. Recent form also points to the likes of Sergio Aguero, Alexis Sanchez and David De Gea coming higher in this list. 1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) 2. Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich) 3.

6 Football Terms You Must Know If You Love Football (Part 2) 4. Channels. There are 3 channels. Channel 1 is straight through the middle of the pitch towards the penalty box. Bojan Krikic in yesterday's match between Stoke City and Manchester United was fouled by Ander Herrera as he exploited channel 1 right after Stoke conceded the second goal. Channel 2 is the space between the right centre back and an advancing right full back. Channel 3 is on the opposite left side. Sergio Aguero is a master of these channels as Mesut Ozil was with Real Madrid. 5. False 9 The false 9 as the name implies is not a true No.9. He is an attacking midfielder or even a forward who mimics the position. Instead of playing as a target man or an out-and-out striker, he moves away from the opposition penalty box deep into his own half through the middle, thereby pulling along the centre backs with him. This enables the other midfielders to find spaces behind the defense and score goals. Francesco Totti was among the first crop of ...

Cristiano Ronaldo is a world class footballer; no person in the world can argue about it. Whether he is better than Lionel Messi is a never-ending debate that will go on for years to come, and maybe the final few years of the Real Madrid star’s career will help us discover the answer. Ronaldo is about to turn 30 in February, but his recent stats show that the Portuguese skipper is still in the peak years of his glittering career. Ronaldo has taken the 2014/15 season by storm, with an unbelievable goal-scoring display. Even by his own lofty standards, the stats are truly extraordinary. Ronaldo has scored 15 goals in eight La Liga matches so far, while Messi has managed to score only half of that tally in the same number of appearances. The Barcelona hitman’s record is excellent, averaging almost a goal per game, but it loses its sheen when compared with Ronaldo’s otherworldly start to the campaign. Not everyone would agree, but the Former Manchester United man already seems like the leading candidate ...

Louis Van Gaal is expecting either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo to win the Ballon d'Or but feels one of Germany's World Cup-winning squad would merit the award more. The Barcelona and Real Madrid stars are favourites to be crowned on January 12, 2015, but the Manchester United manager feels the pair do not deserve the honour. Messi, a four-time winner, was handed the Golden Ball at the World Cup after helping Argentina to the final while Ronaldo, a two-time winner, lifted the Champions League with Real Madrid. But Van Gaal feels a member of the triumphant Germany squad would be more worthy victors, with Toni Kross, Philipp Lahm, Thomas Muller, Manuel Neuer, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mario Gotze all nominated.

Rooney is set to join England's centurions club when, as expected, he will lead the side out at Wembley for the Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia on November 15, which is likely to be an 80,000 sell-out.

If anyone knows how to stop Argentina maestro Lionel Messi, it may just be Iran coach Carlos Queiroz. He has been credited with devising the tactics and defensive system that shut down Messi in both legs of the 2008 Champions League semifinals while Queiroz was assistant manager at Manchester United, which beat Barcelona 1-0 on aggregate. Many have described Queiroz's strategy as a master class, with United stifling Messi by denying him space to get a good first touch. Now, Queiroz will attempt the same feat when Iran takes on Argentina in Group F on Saturday. "We will try to do it," Queiroz said. "But Messi is surrounded by different players now. They know each other well." Queiroz has already proven at this World Cup that he can put out a solid defensive unit, holding Nigeria to a 0-0 draw in Iran's first group match. But it will be a very different proposal against an Argentina side that also has other star players like Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain. Queiroz said the key is for his team to play wit ...

A recent study by Bloomberg says that Kevin Strootman came fifth in a scientific analysis for performance. The list, called the BSports Power 50, explains how it is judged: 'BSports developed an objective analysis that creates a performance rating for players, and compared those to others in every other club in the big five European leagues. This advanced analysis covers over 100 types of player actions, leading to roughly 1,000 to 1,500 data points for each player per match. Evaluating the data, we analysed players based on their core responsibilities on the field to produce aBSports Rating (BSR).' To put this into some kind of context, Strootman was only placed behind Luis Suarez in first place, and Lionel Messi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo. It's incredibly impressive for a player not considered to be one of the world's very best.

Since Arsenal last won a trophy Chelsea have had nine different managers, Lionel Messi has won the Ballon d'Or four times and Dot Cotton is STILL in Eastenders For those of a certain age with longer memories, it doesn’t seem like yesterday that Arsenal captains were suffering shoulder pain from lifting so much silverware and dropping Steve Morrow on his head. Arsene Wenger won’t thank us for reminding him on the eve of Saturday’s FA Cup final against Hull City, but it is now nine years since the Gunners won a trophy, beating Manchester United at Wembley in the Cup Final’s first ever penalty shootout. May 21, 2005. Tony Blair and Labour had just been re-elected for a third term in power, and Axel F by Crazy Frog (no pun intended, Arsene) was about to begin a four-week stay at the top of the UK charts.

Should the move go through, Shaw would become one of the most expensive teenagers in history, the current best-paid youngster on the planet and the second most expensive full-back behind Barcelona's Dani Alves. Manchester City and Chelsea have both expressed an interest in Shaw but both clubs will have to rein in their spending in light of Uefa's Financial Fair Play regualations.

Bayern Munich PATH TO THE QUARTERS Last opponents: Arsenal Next opponents: Man Utd There has seldom been a more dominant football team in recent years than this current Bayern Munich outfit. Pep Guardiola has seemingly built upon perfection since replacing the all-conquering Jupp Heynckes last summer, leaving many suggesting a back-to-back Champions League triumph is something of an inevitability. They remain a united machine of a team, with no stand-out stars taking the attention away from what is a model outfit. If anything, they have become only more impressive as a squad, with Guardiola regularly rotating his panel and Bavarians' fortunes improving as a result. They are now 50 games unbeaten in the Bundesliga and on course for another magnificent treble. Bayern were the one team nobody wanted in Friday's draw and their pairing with an under-achieving Manchester United side means that their status as favourites has only strengthened.

Lionel Messi and the Infernal Carousel- by Ato Quayson "After their defeat to Fc Barcelona in the final of the 2009 Uefa Champions League played in Rome, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson referred to Barcelona’s style of play as an infernal carousel of passing, and passing, and passing. The formula was replicated to great effect again in the 2011 final between the two teams played at Wembley, which Barcelona won again 2-1. What Sir Alex referred to as the infernal carousel is also known as Total Football and is based on the soccer training method perfected by the Dutch Wiel Coerver and first dazzlingly displayed to the world by Holland at the 1974 World Cup. Coerver was himself nothing short of a scientific genius: he closely analyzed film footage of some of the Best Players of his time including Pele and concluded that far from their talents being innate, all their skills could be carefully systematically inculcated into players starting from a young age. This insight and the method he de ...

That win came in 2009 when Liverpool, managed by Rafael Benitez, humiliated their local rivals with a Steven Gerrard-inspired 4-1 win at the home of Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

David Moyes and Manchester United remain bullish for Olympiakos tie • Manager believes United can win Champions LeagueWayne Rooney says strikeforce is working hard in training From David Moyes and his Manchester United Players the message is clear: no one is giving up on the Champions League. Wayne Rooney, Darren Fletcher and Nemanja Vidic all echo the manager's bullishness that a fourth European Cup is not beyond United despite the side standing sixth in the Premier League, 11 points from qualifying for next season's contest. To tout themselves as able to win a tournament that includes the holders, Bayern Munich, who are more formidable this year, and the gilded Barcelona team of Lionel Messi, Xavi and Neymar, sounds fantastical. Yet this is a cup competition and Moyes spoke at the weekend of "doing a Liverpool", who triumphed nine years ago as underdogs, while Chelsea in 2012 also somehow pulled off the trick of lifting the trophy when deeply unfancied. United's quest continues in the last 16 at ...
Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney, Luis Suarez & Sergio Aguero. I wish they were all with our Manchester United.
With the defeat of the most best 2 English world teams, the only hope is now left for Chelsea and Manchester United. Talking points. Manchester City performed par in their first leg 2-0 defeat from Barcelona but they looked sharp in the pitch. The soft contact by Demichelis on Lionel Messi tide turns the whole of the game. Manchester City didn't give up and their attack was disjointed but Barca remained patient from their opponents who were defending awesome. Dani Alvis ended the game by his last minute strike giving his team 2-0 lead. This was the third defeat of Manchester City in Ethad Stadium this season. They were only defeated by Chelsea and Buyen Munich. The Gunners yesterday performed very well in the first half. With a disappointing penalty miss by German international Mesut Ozil the whole Arsenal team lost hope. To make matters worse we saw a different match when Arsenal were down to ten man but before that they were awesome. The Arsenal game was a bit a slacky in the attack. Will question Wenge ...

News I Was Close To Arsenal: All-Conquering Barca Star Reveals Shocking Talks Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has revealed that he was close to joining Arsenal before he joined Manchester United, but was persuaded to join United by the personal intervention with former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson. The move was ultimately unsuccessful, with Pique moving back to Spain with Barcelona in 2008, but the defender returns to Manchester this week to face Manchester City. Pique praised City’s season so far, and was dismissive of the mind games employed against the side by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, but warned the Citizens that Barcelona have evolved from the side that largely relied upon Lionel Messi. Pique started his career at Barca, but left in 2004 to move to England due to a lack of possible progression at the club. “It was really difficult to break through to the first team and I think the best option was to leave Barcelona and go to England,” he said to The Telegraph of his decision. “I remember t ...

Manchester United boss David Moyes admits he's told Adnan Januzaj to follow Lionel Messi's example when he gets kicked in games. The winger is getting more physical attention as his profile grows. "We've spoken to Adnan about it," said Moyes. "He gets kicked in training every day and he gets up. "He's learnt from the good professionals that he has to get on with it and accept it. He only needs to look at Messi, who is the best in the world at getting kicked and then getting on with it and continuing to produce magic. "I'm certainly not comparing him in any way to Lionel Messi but the way Messi gets up after getting kicked is how we hope Adnan behaves. "It's not a case of asking for protection but, somewhere along the line, if he's going to keep playing the way he's playing, then he's going to need to get some protection. We'll never ask for it - it's up to the referees."

Hey are you looking for world richest footballer in 2013 ? Then here is the annual report for the World’s top richest footballers has been released by Goal.com and the legend to top the sheet is still someone we all know. Yes it’s David Beckham who is showing his extraordinary skills in France with PSG. His calculated wealth totals up to mind blowing £175 million. After the richest Football star comes two more of the most famous footballers in history, Cristiano Ronaldo at third place from Real Madrid, and Lionel Messi at second from Barcelona. Ronaldo has been seen at £112 million while Messi is worth £115 million. This list has been announced by Goal Magazine as “The Goal Rich List 2013” and incredibly, there are only two players from the English Premier League in the top 10 Richest footballers. These include Rio Fernando at the worth of £42 million, who is currently playing for Manchester United and then there is Wayne Rooney at 7th place, worth £50 million.
Mark Holmes says Manchester United's players must take a share of the blame for their poor start, but questions David Moyes' defensive demands. Moyes' defensive demands not helping One of the main questions asked of David Moyes' ability to manage Manchester United was whether his approach was attacking enough to meet the club's long-standing values. As it happens, there have been as many defensive problems as there have been offensive ones (albeit United have not scored from open play in the Premier League since the Opening Day) during the early part of Moyes' reign, but his use (or rather lack of) of Shinji Kagawa goes some way to explaining what the Scot expects of his players. Sir Alex Ferguson also did not use Kagawa a great deal, of course, but he always found a way to allow his most creative players plenty of freedom to play on instinct. It is a common privilege for top players at top clubs - Lionel Messi, to use the most extreme example, will not be expected to do too much in the way of defensive w ...

LONDON -- Humbled by Celtic in the latest shock result in the Champions League, Barcelona travels to Russia this week as the competition favourites attempt for the second time to seal a place in the knockout stage. Patrice Bergeron Jersey . The Champions League has thrown up a string of unpredictable scorelines this season and none bigger than Barcas 2-1 loss in Glasgow two weeks ago, preventing the Spanish giants joining FC Porto, Malaga and Manchester United in the last 16 with two games to spare. Lionel Messi and his team still need one more victory to advance in Group G but achieving that at Spartak Moscow on Tuesday is far from guaranteed, given that Barcelona has only won once in six trips to Russia. "We must not drop our guard or relax," Barcelona playmaker Andres Iniesta. "Up to this point, our start to the season has been sustained and sensational. But we must continue as weve begun." While Barcelona is still a big favourite to progress, the same cant be said of a number of Europes big guns. Ma ...

They have been amazing in both games we have played against them recently.

I have never seen anything like that before.” Lionel Messi “The Celtic fans are incredible. It is always great to play there.” Cristiano Ronaldo “Celtic, like Barcelona, are more than a football club.

Forget about Gareth Bale, or 'man-biter' Luis Suarez -- or even that little Brazilian joining Barcelona next season who looks like he has stepped out of One Dimension, but probably isn't as good as Lionel Messi -- the most divisive transfer of the summer will be Adel Taarabt. Ian Walton/Getty Images If Adel Taarabt, left, stays at QPR, he won't be seeing the likes of Manchester United in league play next season. The mercurial/maverick Moroccan was at the centre of QPR's successful promotion to the Premier League two seasons ago, and it must be tempting to think that his skill, along with the advance in talent at the club, will be enough to ensure an immediate return to the top flight. So far, Anzhi Makhachkala -- from whence Chris Samba came -- has been rumoured to want to take Taarabt, and they would be happy to pay 15 million pounds. Also, UAE moneybags Al Ain are interested, and the player himself is talking up an exit, so a move is quite possible. -Cesar intends to stay in England It makes the £15m p ...
Incoming manager David Moyes hopes to persuade the Spaniard to reunite with his old Arsenal teammate Robin Van Persie at Manchester United in a sensational summer transfer thought to be worth around £30million. It is thought that Fabregas is unsettled at Barcelona just less than two years after rejoining his boyhood club from Arsenal. The 26-year-old has had to settle for limited playing time at the Camp Nou this season after Barcelona’s star midfield duo Andres Iniesta and Xavi being the preferred choices. This has left the player frustrated and tempted by a possible return to the Premier League. However, is the Spaniard the ideal candidate to revitalise Manchester United’s ageing midfield? This was most evident this season at Barcelona where he’s played as a second striker combining with Lionel Messi playing short passes, making off-the-ball movements and becoming another goal scoring option. In the wake of Paul Scholes' retirement, manager Moyes is looking for stability in the centre of the park ...
Chelsea must show faith in youngsters Chelsea opinion: Chelsea risk losing a host of young stars if they refuse to give them the chance to play La Masia - no it’s not a club, nor is it a famous place as such. But the word is synonymous for a perfect youth academy. La Masia has been churning out talent after talent into the Barcelona first team. The likes of Carles Puyol, Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi are all the finest of the academy! That’s not all; many other clubs, some in Spain, others abroad have also been raking in the benefits. Most notable of which was Arsenal getting seven years out of the fantastic Cesc Fabregas before he returned to his boyhood club. It is not just Barcelona who has a fantastic youth system in place. Real Madrid are also quite adept in producing superstars like Raul, Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos and the likes. Coming to England, Manchester United have been producing and nurturing fine talent into the world of football for some time now! Arsenal has also been able to ...
2012-13 Landmark No.1 Lionel Messi scores the most goals in a calendar year ever beating the ever lasting record held by Gerd Muller after 40 years. Landmark No.2 The Uefa Champions League Final was an all German final. Landmark No.3 Manchester United win their 20th top flight title. Landmark No.4 Fc Barcelona get their biggest overall defeat in the Champions League after losing in the semis 7-0 on aggregate to Bayern Munich. Landmark No.5 Chelsea win both European Cups in consecutive seasons.
Real Madrid and Portuguese superstar winger Cristiano Ronaldo leads the charts with 12 goals in this season’s Champions League campaign. He scored his last one with an easy tap-in away to finalists Borussia Dortmund after helping his side reach the semi-finals with crucial goals in the knockout stages against old club Manchester United and Galatasaray. The 28-year-old, who has netted 55 goals for Los Blancos in 55 games, could dethrone Lionel Messi. The latter has scooped each of the last four top scorer awards in the tournament. However, Ronaldo’s prospect of finishing as this year’s highest goal scorer in the Champions League hangs in the balance. It will all depend on how his closest challengers – Robert Lewandowski of Borussia Dortmund, who has ten goals, and Thomas Mueller of Bayern Munich, who has eight – perform in Saturday’s Champions League final. If it seems almost impossible for Mueller – who scored three times against Barcelona in the semis – to catch Ronaldo at the top of the ...

Barcelona Wizard Leo Messi Reveals His Summer Transfer Targets Barcelona star Lionel Messi has revealed he would love to play alongside Gareth Bale and Wayne Rooney, potentially urging the Catalan club to shell out well over £100m in the summer. However, 25-year-old Messi, hailed as perhaps the greatest footballer in the history of the game, was quick to acknowledge that neither Tottenham nor Manchester United would willingly release such valuable players. "Wayne Rooney and Gareth Bale are both great players, they are doing so well for their clubs. And I always want to play with the Best Players. But I have to be careful with what I say because I can't see them leaving their teams soon," the Argentine international explained . Bale, 23, and Rooney, 27, have both been linked with moves away from White Hart Lane and Old Trafford. The Welsh international has been linked to Real Madrid , where he will re-join former team mate Luka Modric. Rooney's future with Sir Alex Ferguson is a little murkier. The ex-Eve ...

‘Ronaldo, Messi Combined, Not as Good as Ronaldo!' L-R: Man United legend, Quinton Fortune; Captain of DHL football team, Mr. Eleazer Nwogu Managing Director, DHL Express, Mr. Randy Buday and Former Super Eagles coach, Chief Adegboye Onigbinde, during the Novelty football match organized by DHL as part of Quinton Fortune’s visit to Nigeria “Forget that he is very chubby now, but Ronaldo (the original one) in his heyday was head and shoulders above both (Cristiano) Ronaldo and Lionel Messi combined!” This was how Former Manchester United star, Quinton Fortune, described Brazil’s 2002 World Cup star, Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima. Fortune, who is still clearly in awe of the former World Footballer of the Year, went on to add: “He (Ronaldo) was quite unbelievable, he could do what no other player could do. He had it all – strength, stamina, skill, brains; you name it, he had it.” I had an opportunity to meet the former United winger during his visit to Nigeria earlier in the month at the be ...
Real Madrid turns table on Barcelona (Submitted by Sports Journalist) Real Madrid’s 2-1 Primera Division defeat of Barcelona on Saturday confirmed that Jose Mourinho’s team is now dominant over their Catalan rivals, and that Cristiano Ronaldo has gained the upper hand in his personal rivalry with Lionel Messi. Ronaldo only had to play half an hour at a sunny Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, but that was enough to inspire Madrid to a second crushing victory over Barcelona in a week, following Tuesday’s 3-1 Copa Del Rey win. Messi played the full 90, and scored in the first half, but by the end had faded completely from the game, just as he had earlier in the week. The Portuguese’s performance typified his side’s drive and confidence ahead of its Champions League last 16 game at Manchester United on Tuesday; the Argentine’s disappearing act showed Barca are in deep, deep trouble ahead of its European challenge against Milan. On the other hand, Madrid assistant coach Aitor Karanka told reporters afterw ...

Rafa Benitez snapped last night and launched a blistering atack on Chelsea and their fans - before claiming he will leave the club in the summer. Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand claims fans who compare Gareth Bale to Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo know nothing about football. Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert insists he wants 21-year-old striker Andi Weimann to sign a new deal . Stoke boss Tony Pulis is lining up a summer move for Bolton left-back Marcos Alonso, 21, after missing out on him last month. West Brom manager Steve Clarke wants to keep on-loan Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku, 19, at the Hawthorns for another season . Out-of-favour Cardiff City striker Robert Earnshaw is in talks to sign for Major League Soccer outfit Toronto on loan. Rafa Benitez headed for the Chelsea exit door last night after slating fans for not supporting the club . Sir Alex Ferguson has moved to quell dressing room unrest by telling his fringe players they can still play a part in Manchester United's treble quest. B ...
How Cristiano Ronaldo could have ended up at Barcelona, and Messi at Real Madrid The Portuguese was considered by the Catalan club and was wanted by Sandro Rosell in 2008, while the Argentine could have made a controversial switch to the capital in 2005. It may seem unthinkable now, but had things turned out differently, Cristiano Ronaldo couldhave been turning out in Barcelona Blaugrana in Tuesday's Copa Del Rey Clasico clash, with Lionel Messi in the white of Real Madrid. Cristiano has always maintained that his dream as a youngster was to play for Madrid, yet when he was asked about the possibility of moving to Barcelona in 2010, his answer left many in shock. "You can never say you won't drink from that glass; you never know what can happen in future," he said. Ronaldo signed up at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2009, joining the capital club in a world-record €94 million deal. In the two previous summers, however, Manchester United grew angry at Madrid's heavy-handed tactics in their pursuit of the Portu ...
Manchester United are plotting the biggest signing of the summer by bringing back old boy Cristiano Ronaldo in an astonishing £55million deal, according to the Daily Star. It is alleged the Real Madrid winger feels inadequately respected in Spain – believing La Liga fans favour Barcelona’s four-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi over him.''Which They do'' This has made the prospect of a switch back to his old stomping ground in the English Premier League a tempting prospect for the footballing superstar, the newspaper claims. The move would see the Portugal international reunited with Reds manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who had a heavy influence on moulding the 28-year-old into the player he is today. I hope He comes. ¤Lee
Cristiano going to Man Utd for £55 Million ? GOOD NEWS for Man Utd & PL Fans: Cristiano Ronaldo Back To Old Trafford for £55 Million !! Manchester United are thought to be plotting a £55 million offer to bring Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford, according to a report in the Daily Star. The forward left United in 2009 having spent six successful seasons at the club and won the La Liga title with Madrid last season. However, rumours have surfaced in recent times that the player is unsettled in the Spanish capital and feels as though he isn’t being afforded enough respect, due to fans favouring Lionel Messi over his talents. The player’s biggest ally at the club, Jose Mourinho, is also set to leave the Spanish champions at the end of the season, which would leave Ronaldo weighing up his options, according to the same report. Ronaldo identified Sir Alex Ferguson as a “father figure” when he left the club in 2009 and the pair still have a close relationship today. However, any st ...
"SCREAMING GUS" JOHNSON ON SOCCER MIKE TUESDAY FOR Champions League: Gus Johnson saw his "incubation" period as soccer play-by-play host end last week, making his debut on a huge world football stage, when Christiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid hosted Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United side in the first leg fixture of their Champions League Round of 16 draw. Johnson was impressive by all accounts, and will call the action on the pitch Tuesday at 2:45pm ET on Fox Soccer Channel when Arsenal and Bayern München (Munich) tangle in another opening leg of the CL Round of 16. Wednesday, the world's best footballer Lionel Messi will assert his wizardry as Barcelona battles Italian soccer giant AC Milan at 2:45pm ET also on FSC. Wednesday is the last day of the Round of 16 First Leg action, as second legs will again be back-to-back Tuesday and Wednesday , March 5-6 and 12-13.
Read this :) Real Madrid will face Manchester United in a mouthwatering Champions League last-16 clash that sends Cristiano Ronaldo back to where he made his reputation, and Jose Mourinho to the club many believe he wants to coach one day. "It is going to be thrilling for everybody,'' Real Madrid director Emilio Butragueno said. In another blockbuster pairing in Thursday's draw, Champions League favorite Barcelona and Lionel Messi will play seven-time winner AC Milan. Arsenal will face Bayern Munich, last season's beaten finalist, and big-spending Paris Saint-Germain was paired with Valencia. Also, it was: Celtic vs. Juventus, Shakhtar Donetsk vs. Borussia Dortmund, FC Porto vs. Malaga, and Galatasaray vs. Schalke. First-leg matches are to be played from Feb. 12-20. Return matches are from March 5-13. The storied history of nine-time European champion Madrid and three-time winner United would be enough to ensure the tie top billing, with the first leg in Spain on Feb. 13. The friendly rivalries of Mourin ...
man teams: Gareth Bale's two goals for Spurs on Thursday night mean that the Welshman has now scored Tottenham's last six goals in all competitions - no other Spurs player has scored in 392 minutes of action. Manchester United star Robin Van Persie has often been called "the difference" in the Premier League title race this season, and he leads the league with 19 goals. But Manchester United are also the Premier League's highest scorers with 62 - which means Van Persie contributes just 31%. 1. Zlatan Ibrahimovic - Paris St-Germain | 21 goals from 45 | 47% of PSG's goals 2. Lionel Messi - Barcelona | 35 goals from 78 | 45% of Barca's goals 3.

Guardiola era (2008–2012) Fc Barcelona B youth manager Pep Guardiola took over Frank Rijkaard's duties at the conclusion of the season.[50] Guardiola brought with him the now famous tiki-taka style of play he had been taught during his time in the Barcelona youth teams. In the process Guardiola sold Ronaldinho and Deco, and started building the Barcelona team around Xavi, Iniesta and Messi. Lionel Messi, four-time FIFA/Ballon d'Or winner, in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, and Fc Barcelona's top goalscorer in official competitions with 298 goals[51] Barça beat Athletic Bilbao 4–1 in the 2009 Copa Del Rey Final, winning the competition for a record-breaking 25th time.

Barcelona delivered a masterclass to inflict another Champions League final defeat on Manchester United as Lionel Messi inspired an emphatic victory at Wembley. Manchester United's hopes of emulating their first European Cup final success here against Benfica in 1968 foundered as Barcelona deservedly repeated their win against Sir Alex Ferguson's side in Rome two years ago. The pattern of an entertaining game bore an uncanny resemblance to events in the Stadio Olimpico in 2009 as United started with optimism and intent before being swamped by Barcelona's brilliance. Pedro gave Barcelona the lead from one of the many wonderful passes played by Xavi - but Wayne Rooney lifted the gloom during a torrid spell for United with a fine equaliser following a swift exchange with Ryan Giggs. Barcelona responded by cranking up what Ferguson labelled their passing "carousel" after the break, with man-of-the match Messi at the centre of events as he tortured United.   Messi's magical feet were decorated by lu ...
Roll back the tape to 2005. The World Youth Championship held in Netherlands. Nigeria’s U-20 side lost to their Argentine counterparts. Two young boys – John Mikel Obi of Nigeria and Lionel Messi of Argentina – thrilled the world with the sublime skills and incredible talents. The final game between Nigeria and Argentina offered the platform to pick who between Mikel and Messi was the Best Player of the tournament. It was a close call. Many rooted for Mikel because he shone like a million stars. Messi was remarkable, the pivot of his Argentine side. Then, when he was voted the Best Player, not a few Nigerians sneered at the decision. Indeed, the year-long transfer controversy between Chelsea and Manchester United fuelled the fact among many football pundits that Mikel was truly the best of the twosome. This school’s argument held sway because of the pedigree of the two English clubs in global football. Another school bemoaned Mikel’s move to Chelsea, attributing his seeming eclipse in the game t ...
If Barcelona were a just bit wealthier ten years ago, Real Madrid’s hero, Cristiano Ronaldo, could’ve well been playing for them, says the Catalan side’s former president, Joan Laporta. “Barcelona was offered Ronaldo’s transfer when he was still a Sporting player,” Laporta is cited as saying by Sport-Express newspaper. “We could’ve signed him back than, paying less than Man United actually did. But at that time we had just acquired Ronaldinho, Ricardo Quaresma and Rafael Marques and we just did not have the financial resources to sign Cristiano Ronaldo as well.” Ronaldo moved to Manchester United from Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon for €17.5 million in 2003. Six years later, he left England for Real Madrid, scoring an impressive 130 goals in 120 appearances for the team from the Spanish capital. The rivalry of Real and Barcelona as well as the team’s captains Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is considered the biggest not only in Spain, but in the whole of football.
Here is the top 10 footballers we think this year who have dazzled the world of football in a year to remember. 1. LIONEL MESSI The FIFA World Player of the year 2009 was inarguably the best football player this year also. He helped his national team Argentina reach the Quarter-finals in the 2010 FIFA World Cup and his club record for Barcelona this year is also scintillating. He is joint leader of the scoring charts in the La Liga with 17 goals already this season. At only 22, he has a long way to go and we can expect many more miracles out of this wonder-boy. 2. Cristiano Ronaldo Joint leader in the scoring charts of the La Liga with Lionel Messi at 17 goals, Cristiano Ronaldo has charmed his way into the hearts of Real Madrid fans. The Portuguese international had a huge role to play in his country’s foray in the World Cup. His curling free kicks and brilliant dribbling skills have undone many a defenders in the recent years. Since his rise at Manchester United, Ronaldo has never really touched a low ...

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson hails Robin Van Persie, claiming: 'He's up there with Ronaldo and Lionel Messi'
Everyone has his/her opinion but to me Christiano Ronaldo is better than Lionel Messi - I only see Messi in Barcelona FC, the very same Barcelona that won a FIFA World Cup 2010 with Spain it shows that with or without Messi the team is solid at Argentina he is nowhere to be seen . I saw Christiano Ronaldo with Manchester United he was on top of his game later moved to Real Madrid and he's the same even with Portugal. ''stolen''
Am a staunch Manchester United fan, and I must admit that La Liga will forever remain the best league in the world, and Lionel Messi, who has continued to trouble my player Christiano Ronaldo, is the best pitch for pitch player the world has ever produced.
on Cristiano Ronaldo... "Portugal have a national team called Cristiano Ronaldo and a group of players who run after him." - former Portugal manager Carlos Queiroz. "He's an unbelievable player. We have a pantheon of great players and Ronaldo definitely compares with any of them. He had a bit of the Eric Cantona about him. He was definitely good value for Madrid." - Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United manager. on Andres Iniesta... "The press often ask me about whether Messi or Ronaldo is the best, but for me something is very clear: Andres Iniesta is the number one. He is able to do even more difficult things on the pitch. He is magic with the ball and so influential." - David Silva, Manchester City midfielder. "When he has the ball, it's like everything else stops – like the camera is going in slow motion. I've been playing with him since we were 15, and I have never, ever seen him play badly." - Fernando Torres, Chelsea striker. on Lionel Messi... "I feel sorry for those who want to compete for Messi ...
Here an article for you , have a look , and have your say below ! Manchester United probably won't move to sign a new striker this January - But perhaps they should...? There is nothing wrong with Manchester United's strikeforce, in fact they have scored more than any other Premier League side this season. But sometimes a player comes onto the market, that is irresistible and can make a team even better. Fans were originally reticent about signing Carlos Tevez in 2007 - arguing 'He's too similar to Wayne Rooney' - One season later they were Champions League winners. You can simply never have enough quality - And that brings us to Spain's all-time leading scorer David Villa. The Barcelona forward has been in and out of the side this season, with Alexis Sanchez preferred to partner Lionel Messi, and the club are willing to sell if they receive a big offer in the region of £20 million. It may seem on the face of it counter-intuitive for United to bring in another striker - But is anyone going to argue David ...
Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to shock Real Madrid and refuse to sign a contract extension, which will spark doubt over his future at the Bernabeu. Ronaldo claimed that he was ‘sad’ at the La Liga champions at the start of the season, but it seemed as though he was happy again over recent months. The Portuguese international is currently contracted to the club until 2015, but Real want to tie him down until 2018 and were even prepared significantly increase his wages. However, living in the spotlight of Lionel Messi might be getting to Real’s number seven and he could be ready to leave Spain in order to make a challenge for a Balloon D’Or trophy, something that is difficult to do when playing in the same league as the Barcelona man. This news is sure to put both Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain on red alert as both are keen on securing his services. United might not be able to bring him back to the English Premier League as he would of course be extremely expensive. But, it does hang in the ...

Cristiano Ronaldo has waited 11 months for Real Madrid to give him a new deal — now he can force his way out in the summer. Just like he did when he was at Manchester United. And it’s ironic how the Ronaldo story can come full circle as boss Sir Alex Ferguson wants the prodigal son back at Old Trafford. His £810million get-out clause gives Madrid the upper hand. Or does it? This summer, Ronaldo will have two years left on his contract. Snub a new deal and, get-out clause or not, Madrid will have to accept a much lower fee. In 2009, United lost their battle to keep Ronaldo who forced a move for a world-record £80m fee. Now the boot is on the other foot. How amusing that must be for Fergie, if nothing else. Frustrated Ronaldo watched Lionel Messi land a new six-year deal at Barcelona worth over £100m. The winger was promised a new contract himself in January by Real president Florentino Perez. But it has yet to be signed and last week Madrid were playing catch-up, saying Ronaldo will get a six-year d ...

O’Neill compares Van Persie to Messi Robin Van Persie is getting used to compliments in the light of his sensational start at Manchester United - but how about this one. Martin O’Neill reckons the £22million striker is the Red Devils’ answer to Barcelona star Lionel Messi. It doesn’t get much better than that - but then things could hardly be going any better for the Former Arsenal skipper at his new club. His opener against the Black Cats was his 15th goal already for United — but he is also becoming something of a talisman for them. Worryingly for Manchester City and other title hopefuls, Alex Ferguson believes his other players are still getting used to RVP. Yet O’Neill says he is giving United the kind of edge which Barcelona have had for years thanks to Messi. The Black Cats chief said: “With players of the calibre of Van Persie in your side, you always have a chance of winning football matches. Would, for instance, Barcelona have the same effect if Lionel Messi didn’t play? The numb ...
