Middlesbrough pulled off an FA Cup upset as they beat Premier League champions Manchester City 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium.Patrick Bamford’s goal in the early stages of the second half put Boro ahead and substitute *** doubled the lead in stoppage time to take the Championship side into the last 16.Although there were opportunities for Willy Caballero and Dedryck Boyata, City boss Manuel Pellegrini named a strong side that included the likes of Vincent Kompany, David Silva and Sergio Aguero so could hardly point to a weakened line-up.But in a game that pitted a Former Real Madrid coach in Pellegrini against a former assistant manager at the Bernabeu in Boro boss Aitor Karanka, it was an ex-Real goalkeeper that stole the show.Tomas Mejias made just one La Liga appearance for the Spanish giants prior to joining Middlesbrough last year but showed plenty of class in a hugely impressive display to deny City.Mejias kept out Stevan Jovetic’s rasping shot from distance before pulling off a
Guardian Barca’s £172m ‘guide price’ on Messi Tuesday, 06 January 2015 19:45 Written by EDITOR Category: Abroad Lionel Messi would cost a whopping £172m should any of Barcelona’s rivals want to take him away this month, according to research into the current market values of the world’s leading players. The Argentine star comfortably tops a CIES Football Observatory countdown of football’s most valuable players and is worth £68m more than his Real Madrid rival Cristiano Ronaldo. The totals serve as a ‘guide price’ for the January transfer window, using a calculation that takes into account player performance, age, contract and the results of their team. The top 10 features six Premier League players - Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas of Chelsea, Sergio Aguero of Manchester City, Raheem Sterling of Liverpool and Alexis Sanchez of Arsenal. But it finds Messi far and away the most expensive player in Europe at the moment. Ronaldo, the favourite to win the Ballon d’Or for the wo ...

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 ...

Manchester United midfielder Angel Di Maria says he will put aside ties with his Manchester City countrymen when the two sides meet this weekend. Di Maria is set to face fellow Argentines such as Sergio Aguero and Pablo Zabaleta when United travel to the Etihad for Sunday's Manchester derby. Di Maria also dismissed suggestions that he rejected a move to Paris Saint-Germain Last Summer and insisted he never had any hesitation in signing for United. French champions Paris Saint-Germain were heavily linked with a move for Di Maria throughout Last Summer, but he eventually sealed a British- record £59.7 million move from Real Madrid to United and he has stressed he was eager to move to Old Trafford when the offer came his way. "There was never any contact anywhere else," Di Maria told reporters at a Premier League Kicks event. "The people who came with all the paperwork, signed and ready, showing real eagerness to sign me were United. As soon as I heard of their interest, there was no question of me going an ...

BREAKING NEWS.. Via EUROSPORT Barcelona are in advanced negotiations to complete the signing of England's World Cup bete noire Luis Suarez from Liverpool, reports in Spain claim. After a season without silverware, the Catalan club are desperately looking for a top new star to give the supporters at the Camp Nou fresh hope. Last Summer they spent around £80m on Neymar and now, according to Mundo Deportivo, are ready to make a similar move for the Liverpool and Uruguay star. Luis Enrique's side have also recently been linked with Sergio Aguero, Marco Reus and Gonzalo Higuain but Mundo Deportivo claims Suarez is their real top target this summer. The paper understands that when Suarez signed a new deal on Merseyside last season, Liverpool agreed to the inclusion of an €85m (£67m, $115m) release clause which could be reduced to €65m (£52m) should Real Madrid or Barcelona express an interest. The Catalan newspaper claims on its front page that talks on a deal -- made up of £30m plus Alexis Sanchez --- ...
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.

Sergio Aguero insists he is not tempted by a move to either Barcelona or Real Madrid this summer and will stay at Manchester City next season. The two Spanish giants have been linked with a move for the former Atletico Madrid striker as they look to bolster their ranks this summer, but Aguero insists he has no intention of leaving the Etihad Stadium. He said: "There's lots of talk about Real Madrid and Barcelona. It's always the same every year, but the truth is that I'm going to stay at City. I'm very happy and I'm going to continue there." The 26-year-old Argentina international has been a huge hit at City since moving to England from Atletico in 2011, and has helped them win two Premier League titles in three years. MUST HAVE HAD A BIRTHDAY CAKE LOL!
Argentina v Bosnia (ko 11pm UK time)   You have to go back 24 years to find the last time Argentina progressed past the quarter-final stage but hopes are high they can at least emulate their 1990 performance, when they lost 1-0 to West Germany in the final. The draw has been kind, pitching them against Bosnia, Nigeria and Iran, and they should get their campaign off to a flyer. Their main strength lies in attack and even if Gonzalo Higuain remains sidelined for this match, the frightening skills of Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero are going to give a slightly suspect Bosnia back-line a nightmare time, while that pairing can rely on quality service from Real Madrid's Angel Di Maria. Argentina won last November's friendly meeting 2-0 and Alejandro Sabella's men have now clocked up five consecutive clean sheets, but if they have a weakness it's in defence. Bosnia's best form of defence is attack and the Balkan side, whose front line will be spearheaded by Edin Dzeko (10 goals in qualifying), could mark their ...

Arsenal's transfer business this summer is braced for an awkward twist after Real Madrid poured cold water on rife transfer links involving a number of its players. According to Marca, last season's Copa del Rey and Uefa Champions League winners are "in no hurry to recruit fresh legs and neither are they in under pressure to sell anyone. " President Florentino Perez has prioritized minimizing departures this summer as Carlo Ancelotti intends to utilize the vast potential already endowed in his tool chest. The Spanish capital outfit will not entertain any bids until after the World Cup showpiece in Brazil. Both Sami Khedira and Karim Benzema who were initially tipped to don Arsenal colors in the new season are set to be offered new contracts while Angel Di Maria who is currently desperate will be soothed by a pay rise.

Manchester City are bracing themselves for a £60m bid from Real Madrid for Sergio Aguero after the European champions gave up on Luis Suarez
Wenger will have the spending power to spend £40 million on a striker this summer, which is apparently what Real Madrid want for Karim Benzema. But I don’t think the France international will be playing for Arsenal next season. The Express are reporting that Madrid have let the Gunners know that they would be willing to sell their star striker, but only for enough money to help them bid for one of their top targets, Luis Suarez and Sergio Aguero. But even though this deal would get Arsenal a top class striker and damage one of our Premier League rivals, I cannot see our manager going for it. The Prof may have proved Last Summer, with the transfer of Mesut Ozil, that he is willing to splurge on the right player, but he also showed with the Higuain saga that he will not pay what he considers to be over the odds. And with Benzema having just a year left on his current contract, Wenger will surely consider £40 million as daylight robbery. Should Arsenal just pay Madrid what they want, offer them less, or ...
TODAY's TRANSFER RUMOUR! Los Blancos’ Frenchman valuation Real Madrid have reminded Arsenal that a bid less than 40 million pounds is not acceptable for Karim Benzema, according to reports in the Daily Express. It is reported that Arsene Wenger is keen on the 26 year old forward. On the other hand, the Spanish giants need funds for their rumoured pursuit of Sergio Aguero or Luis Suarez and are hoping to maximize earnings from the sale of Benzema, who has just 1 year left on his current contract at Real Madrid. The Dutchman’s Project The rumours that, Louis Van Gaal is aiming for a massive overhaul at Manchester United during the summer break, have finally been confirmed, after the 62 year old was quoted as having said, “I haven't talked to them [the club] about money, only over the players I would like to have and those that may leave. I've never been one to bother about transfer sums. That, the club can negotiate. I just want to know what is possible and what is not,” reports the Daily Express .. ...
ARSENAL TO BID FOR BENZEMA? Arsenal have been linked with a £30m (R 519 million) move for Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema as Arsene Wenger targets a new world-class striker. According to Englsih media, Arsenal will make a bid for the French striker after the Champions League final on May 24. Benzema has reportedly just 12 months left on his contract at Bernabeu and Real Madrid are rumoured to be interested in Luis Suarez or Sergio Aguero. Both players, however, have insisted they won’t leave their respective clubs, but it is yet to be seen how they would respond to an official bid. Arsenal are believed to have asked for Benzema the previous summer when the signed Mesut Ozil, but Real were not prepared to let the Frenchman go after Gonzalo Higain had already left the club. As a consequence, Arsenal have relied heavily on Olivier Giroud this season. Benzema’s compatriot has scored 22 goal in all competitions for the Gunners but Wenger is believed to look out for a more prolific striker. The 26-year-old B ...

Exclusive: Arsenal In Talks to Sign £80m Pair as Arsene Wenger Looks to Seal Early Summer Deals. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is looking to secure the signings of Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema and Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler and will hope to have deals in place before the pair begin their World Cup campaigns with France and Germany respectively. EBWTv understands that Wenger is keen to avoid any last minute panic buys this summer and has been handed a sizable transfer fund war-chest to invest in additions that can help the North London side mount a genuine Premier League title challenge next season. Wenger will look to bring in long term target Karim Benzema and is ready to offer as much as £40m for the Bernabeu ace though any move for the 26 year old would hinge on Carlo Ancelotti successfully acquiring a replacement for the former Lyon man.

Is £35m Benzema now the main Arsenal transfer target? If things keep going the way they are, Arsenal fans will start to call Real Madrid our feeder club. It seems that almost every other player that the Gunners are linked with is currently playing at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Spain. Having failed, for whatever reason, to land Gonzalo Higuain as well as Mesut Ozil Last Summer, media reports are suggesting that Karim Benzema, the French international that was preferred to Higuain, could be for sale at the end of the season. The Mirror is reporting that the giants of La Liga are planning to offload Benzema to make way for Sergio Aguero from Man City. Other reports suggest that it is Liverpool’s Luis Suarez that they are after. Either one would help Arsenal, by weakening our rivals and possibly seeing Benzema arrive in North London. He is French after all, with quite a few of his international team-mates at the Emirates, and he already knows that Mesut Ozil would provide him with plenty of ammunitio ...
Juventus must snub struggling Osvaldo and sign a real top-class forward this summer -SOCCER GIST- The Bianconeri are too over-reliant on Carlos Tevez and will be committing a huge error if they execute their option to retain the on-loan Southampton striker The summer is a pretty predictable period when it comes to football. Real Madrid cause widespread outrage by publicly pursuing a superstar, Bayern Munich weaken all of their Bundesliga rivals, while Juventus regularly fail in their quest to sign one of the planet's best strikers. The upcoming transfer market is unlikely to be any different with regards to Madrid and Bayern, but the Bianconeri simply cannot allow another Sergio Aguero or Robin Van Persie to slip through their fingers. Last year's capture of Carlos Tevez from Manchester City for a cut-price €10 million was actually one of the bargains of 2013.

Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano tiptoes into the list in 10th place. Many will argue he is number 1, but whilst Ronaldo has an enviable repertoire of tricks and flicks, he rarely uses them to go past more than one defender. As he has evolved from teenage show pony to goalscoring machine, his dribbling is perhaps the only area of his game that diminished. In his earlier years at United, a lighter weight incarnation of Cristiano was far more likely to slalom through crowds of defenders than he is now. He still has the ability to breeze past players with a step-over and explosion of pace, but his upright running style does not have the same finesse as those further on in the list. 9) Di Maria Ronaldo’s chief assailant at Real Madrid. The Argentine’s mazy runs whilst at Benfica initially earned him Messi comparisons. He is not of the same ilk as Messi but he is of similar style. Speed, agility and delicate touches of his left foot combine to make stopping him in full flight a real challenge. His wafer light p ...

My prediections: Barcelona v Atletico Madrid ~ This one will be tight, but I think experience will see Barqa through to the final four. Neymar and Messi will score enough goals to cover for Barqa's defensive deficiencies, and Puyol will be leaving it all out on the field in his final campaign. Barqa will win one for the Gipper and go through. Real Madrid v Borussia Dortmund ~ Real Madrid will have more problems than people expect. Don't forget; Borussia Dortmund were the Bundesliga champions two seasons ago. They may appear to have faltered since, but a lot of that is due to Bayern Munich playing out of thier minds and destroying the Bundesliga each of the past two seasons. They won't be scared by Real's attack, and may actually grab a home victory. But it won't be enough; I see Real going through, especially after last year's disappointment. Bale will be the difference. Paris St Germain v Chelsea ~ Easily the premier matchup of this stage in the competition. Less than two years removed from their surpris ...
Manchester City have moved to ease any fan fears over the future of star striker Sergio Aguero by telling Real Madrid he is not for sale at any price. The free-scoring 25-year-old would be worth a fortune is City wanted to cash in – not that they need to – and Real have been persistently linked
Reports in Spanish newspaper Marca suggest that Luis Suarez has agreed a deal to sign for Manchester City in the summer. The reports claim that Liverpool’s superstar striker, who has been in incredible form this season, met with City’s sporting director, Txiki Begiristain, and agreed a deal to leave Liverpool in the summer and move down the East Lancs to Manchester. The Uruguayan pushed for a move away Last Summer but the club stood tall and refused to let him go. It was an inspired decision as Suarez has gone on to score 25 goals in the Premier League to lead the scoring charts in England and Europe while also agreeing a new long-term contract halfway through the season. The reports in Spain also claim that due to Suarez’s arrival, one of City’s own superstar strikers, Sergio Aguero or Alvaro Negredo, will leave in the summer. He has been linked with a return to Spain for quite some time with Real Madrid and Barcelona, apparently, both keen on the forward. Aguero has been in fine form this season ...

LIVER FAILS HOST AT THE BAY ARENA Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice as Paris St-Germain took a huge step towards the Champions League quarter-finals with a convincing last-16 first-leg win over 10-man Bayer Leverkusen. Blaise Matuidi slid the ball under goalkeeper Bernd Leno to give the visitors a third-minute lead. Ibrahimovic then scored a penalty and fired into the top corner from 20 yards within three first-half minutes. Yohan Cabaye sidefooted into the top corner after Emir Spahic saw red. Ibrahimovic's two goals see him move ahead of Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo to become the tournament's top scorer this season, with a personal best 10 Champions League goals. Before Tuesday, the Sweden striker had appeared in 30 matches in the Champions League knockout stages but only scored five goals, and he has yet to win the competition despite spells with Barcelona, Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Ajax.

MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - Manchester United's Champions League exit has made it harder for Manchester City to retain their Premier League title, the champions' manager Roberto Mancini said on Friday. Alex Ferguson's side, whose elimination by Real Madrid on Tuesday has left them with only domestic matters to focus on, had some unlikely supporters of their European campaign in Manchester City. "It's worse for us because I think now they put all their strength into the championship," Mancini, whose side trail United by 12 points, told a news conference. "I think for us it was better they stayed in the Champions League. They would have played an important game every three days, it is more difficult." Before the Manchester clubs get back to their league duel, they turn their attention to the FA Cup, with United hosting Chelsea in the quarter-finals on Sunday the day after City entertain Championship (second tier) Barnsley. Mancini will be without injured forward Sergio Aguero, who did not play in Monday ...

LONDON, Feb 3 (Reuters) - European soccer's big-name strikers enjoyed contrasting fortunes as Mario Balotelli enjoyed a scoring debut for AC Milan to share the spotlight with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo who had weekends to forget. Prolific Messi scored again for La Liga leaders Barcelona, although his side were held by Valencia, but Ronaldo put through his own net as Real Madrid's slim La Liga title hopes faded further with defeat at Granada. ENGLAND Manchester United stretched their lead at the top of the Premier League to nine points after a 1-0 win at Fulham and Manchester City's 2-2 home draw with Liverpool. Wayne Rooney's superb controlled finish after 79 minutes at Craven Cottage was enough for battling United to seal a vital win over Fulham. City had Sergio Aguero to thank for their point after the Argentine scored a magical goal from an acute angle. Edin Dzeko had given the hosts the lead, only for Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard to hit back in style for the Reds. Third-placed Chelsea l ...
Messi shortlisted for Ballon d'Or 29 November 2012 Updated 15:37 GMT Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Andres Iniesta have been named on a three-man shortlist for this year's Ballon d'Or prize, Fifa has announced. Messi, 25, has scored 82 goals this calendar year - just three short of the record set by Gerd Mueller in 1972. Real Madrid's Former Manchester United player Ronaldo also makes the list, along with Barcelona's Iniesta. Pep Guardiola, Vicente Del Bosque and Jose Mourinho are shortlisted for coach of the year. The winners will be announced on 7 January. Manchester United's Wayne Rooney, Britain's sole representative on the initial 23-man list, failed to make it through. His Old Trafford team-mate Robin Van Persie also missed the cut, as did Manchester City trio Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and Yaya Toure. After 50 goals last season in La Liga - including breaking Barcelona's 60-year-old goalscoring record with a hat-trick in a 5-3 win over Granada in March - Messi is expected to win Fifa's pla ...
Why spain is the powerhouse of soccer? . . . . Two cities, three clubs. The world’s best XI of 2012 was comprised entirely of players from Barcelona (5), Real Madrid (5) and Falcao from Atletico Madrid. Or ‘Madrid 6 Barcelona 5’ according to Madrid-based sport paper AS, who prefer club and city one-upmanship. Not a single player who makes his living in the footballing powerhouses of Manchester, Munich or Milan made the XI. Not one who plays in Turin, Dortmund or Paris either. Casillas; Alves, Pique, Ramos, Marcelo; Alonso, Xavi, Iniesta; Messi, Falcao, Ronaldo are the chosen few, voted for by their peers from 49 players’ unions worldwide. It’s an incredible, if awkwardly named, FIFA/FIFPro Team, but it’s partly subjective and arguments will prevail. Why no Philipp Lahm, captain of Bayern Munich and Germany? What about Manchester City’s Yaya Toure, Sergio Aguero or Vincent Kompany? Andrea Pirlo, Giorgio Chiellini or Gianluigi Buffon from Italy? There’s no Petr Cech or Ashley Cole from Chels ...

The only other club represented twice are Madrid, with Ronaldo's team-mate Kaka ranking ninth.

Roberto Mancini admitted the foundations of Manchester City's early exit from the Champions League were built long before their 1-1 draw with Real Madrid. City took their points haul to only three from five games thanks to Sergio Aguero's penalty, but despite having a man advantage in the closing stages they were unable to stay alive with a winning goal. That leaves them needing to beat Borussia Dortmund in Germany next month to have any chance of a place in the Europa League, with their Champions League hopes over in the group stage for a second year running. "I think that the first half we played so-so, Real Madrid played better than us. Second half we played better, we had one or two chances to score. After we scored the penalty, well the result is correct," Mancini said. "The first chance they had, they scored. It was a mistake, we were five against two in the box and we concede a goal. When you start like this it is always difficult. "We were 1-0 down and we didn't have anything to lose in the second ...
MATCH IN A SENTENCE: Manchester City’s Champions League campaign expired at the group stage for a second year in a row after they could only manage to draw Real Madrid, who played the final 17 minutes with only 10 men after Alvaro Arbeloa was sent off. KEY MOMENT: Arbeloa, who picked up a second booking for a foul on Sergio Aguero inside the 18-yard box in the 73rd minute, might have been made to rue his mistake even more had Manchester City been able to build on the goal Aguero subsequently converted from the penalty spot. Instead, the hosts continued to give the ball away with alarming regularity and never really looked like scoring a go-ahead marker. Madrid had taken the lead after only 10 minutes when Karim Benzema got in behind Maicon to put the guests in front in what was the key moment of the match, and until City ditched their back three in favour of a more traditional four-man defensive set they looked like they might be on a hiding. FROM HERE: Manchester City are out of the Champions League an ...
Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho marked his 100th Champions League game with a 1-1 draw at Manchester City on Wednesday that sent his side into the last 16 at City's expense. City had to win to stand any chance of going through, so although Sergio Aguero's 73rd-minute penalty cancelled out Karim Benzema's early opener, the hosts went out in the group phase for a second successive season.

LONDON (AFP) – Manchester City went top in the Premier League by crushing Aston Villa 5-0 on Saturday, but third-placed Chelsea have now gone four games without a win after losing 2-1 at West Bromwich Albion. David Silva’s scrappy 43rd-minute goal put City ahead at the Etihad Stadium, before penalties from Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez — awarded for handballs by Andreas Weimann and Barry Bannan — made it 3-0. Aguero beat Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan at his near post to claim his second goal in the 67th minute and Tevez then tapped home the fifth, as City warmed up for Wednesday’s vital Champions League encounter with Real Madrid in style. The result dropped Villa into the bottom three and took champions City a point clear of former leaders Manchester United, who will return to the summit if they win at Norwich City later on Saturday. Chelsea’s early-season momentum appears to have fizzled out completely, after their defeat at coach Roberto Di Matteo’s former club left them four points off .. ...

Top 10 highest earning FOOTBALLERS in the World. The Kenyan DAILY POST Sports 03:00 Friday, October 11, 2012 - They say money can’t buy you happiness but if you said this to a Manchester United diehard who watched Sergio Aguero score an extra time goal against QPR which handed them the first Premier League title in 44 years, he’ll probably think you are crazy or to be cynical, an Arsenal fan. Even the ecstatic kids who were hugging their unbelieving dads knew money was the reason as he joined City in a £ 38m move from Spanish side Athletico Madrid. And after Real Madrid super star Cristiano Ronaldo returned to his celebratory mood and penned a new deal at the Santiago Bernabeu, here is the list of top ten highest paid footballers in the world. 1. Samuel Eto’o. €20m The former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker who plies his trade with mega rich Russian side Anzi Makhachakala is the highest paid footballer in the world pocketing €20m a year. 2. Cristiano Ronaldo. €15m The former Manchester Unit ...
Informed conjecture would suggest that Cristiano Ronaldo's salary is a match for almost any player in the world - except that of Samuel Eto'o, of course - but the Real Madrid star's wages are apparently less than you may think. According to Marca, Ronaldo is ranked only tenth in the world when it comes to wages paid by their clubs, with the likes of little known Dario Conca raking in more in than the far more illustrious Portuguese. GMF has outlined the top ten earners, according to our friends in Spain, and you may find one of two surprises along the way... 1. Samuel Eto'o - Anzhi Makhachkala: €20m-a- year 2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic - Paris Saint-Germain: €14.5m 3. Wanye Rooney - Manchester United: €13.8m 4. Yaya Toure - Manchester City: €13m 5. Sergio Aguero - Manchester City: €12.5m 6. Didier Drogba - Shanghai Shenhua: €12m 7. Fernando Torres - Chelsea: €10.8m 8. Dario Conca - Guangzho Evergrande: €10.6m 9. Lionel Messi - Barcelona: €10.5m 10. Cristiano Ronaldo - Real Madrid: €10m

Manchester City once failed with an accidental £30 million bid for Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, it has been revealed. City have shown themselves to be willing to splash the cash in order to land big names ever since being taken over by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, having spent over £30 million on each of Robinho and Sergio Aguero, and over £25 million on Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez, Emmanuel Adebayor, Mario Balotelli, David Silva and Yaya Toure. Upon arriving at the club in 2008, City’s owners wanted to make a landmark signing and eventually splashed out on Robinho from Real Madrid, having just missed out on Kaka, Fernando Torres and Dimitar Berbatov as well. Now former Chief Executive Garry Cook, who famously accused Kaka of ‘bottling’ his move to the Etihad Stadium, has revealed that in the confusion of their attempts to land a big name in the summer of 2008, contact was made with Barcelona over the prospect of landing Messi.

The Argentine ace was asked to name his top three strikers by a fan during a video segment called 'asksergio' for the City’s official website with his initial response fairly biased. "Messi, Messi and Messi," Aguero said of the Barcelona star and his national teammate. But he quickly altered that remark by adding Arsenal captain Van Persie and Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo to that group. "Van Persie, and if I have to choose another, [Cristiano] Ronaldo,” he added. My take I beg, Maradona in-law, pick one person jare!
