A top ten of the wealthiest footballers plying their trade in the English top tier. 10. Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) £24m Argentine cost Man City £38m back in July 2011 and the former Atletico Madrid man will have been banking a massive salary ever since and no doubt supplementing those earnings with a hugely profitable goal-scoring bonus. 26 year old has a lucrative long running deal with sports brand Puma which will be drawing a healthy sum. 9. Yaya Toure (Manchester City) £25m Ivorian has been on a hefty £250k a week deal with Man City for the past four seasons but rumours that he earned another million for every successful pass completed against West Ham during the club's 6-0 thrashing of the Hammers are thankfully for the Etihad Stadium side, baseless. Toure also enjoys a big money brand deal with Puma. 8. Fernando Torres (Chelsea) £26m Spaniard would have earned a big signing on fee off the back of his £50m British record transfer from Liverpool to Chelsea though if he's not careful Roman A ...
Vanguard FA Cup : Man City defeat Chelsea 2-0 on February 15, 2014 / in Sports 8:33 pm MANCHESTER – Stevan Jovetic and Samir Nasri scored as Manchester City reached the FA Cup quarter-finals with a potentially significant 2-0 victory over Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. City manager Manuel Pellegrini had been outdone by Chelsea counterpart Jose Mourinho in the two league meetings between the clubs this season, both of which ended in victories for the London side. But a convincing FA Cup win redressed the balance, especially as the important second goal was scored by Nasri within moments of the fit-again Frenchman’s introduction by the City manager. Given the war of words between the rival managers in the wake of Chelsea’s 1-0 league win at the Etihad last week, it was no surprise that the game opened in cagey fashion. James Milner was charged with nullifying Chelsea’s chief playmaker Eden Hazard, with Nemanja Matic performing a similar task on City’s Yaya Toure. But the tie opened ...
City end Chelsea’s FA Cup hopes Manchester City avenged their recent loss to Chelsea in the Premier League with a 2-0 home win on Saturday that sent them into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. City's perfect home record in the league was spoilt last week when Chelsea pulled off a 1-0 win at the Etihad Stadium, but goals in each half from Stevan Jovetic and Samir Nasri gave Manuel Pellegrini's side revenge. Both managers named strong teams for the heavyweight fifth-round clash, but hosts City dominated from the off. Jovetic seemed determined to impress and after clipping a shot just over the crossbar when Petr Cech spilled an effort from Yaya Toure, the Montenegrin forward broke the deadlock in the 16th minute. Edin Dzeko was the architect with a measured pass into the box for Jovetic, who placed a delicate shot into the net via the base of the left-hand post. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho introduced January signing Mohamed Salah and striker Fernando Torres in the second half, but it was City substitute ...
PRE-MATCH BRIEFING: Manchester City V CHELSEA - PART TWO Posted on: Mon 03 Feb 2014 Club historian Rick Glanvill&club statistician Paul Dutton put their finishing touches to their study of the week's big fixture… TACTICAL BRIEF Man City are averaging 4goals a game at home but Chelsea have kept 3 consecutive clean sheets away on the road - this could be a fascinating encounter. In the game at Stamford Bridge which Chelsea won 2-1 the 2 sides took it turns to enjoy periods of dominance&impress. Memorably,Fernando Torres capitalised on a catastrophic mix-up between CB Matija Nastasic&GK Joe Hart to *** all 3points in the last minute. Hart was dropped for 7 league games but has since been reinstated. Torres is unavailable this time around because of injury&it seems likely Samuel Eto'o will be asked to continue his stealthy ways upfront. The Cameroonian's arrival as a late substitute alongside Torres helped unnerve Monday's opponents at the Bridge. This has been the 1st season Manuel Pellegrini has experi .. ...
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is out for a month with a hamstring injury he sustained in the midweek win at Tottenham Hotspur. Midfielders Samir Nasri and Javi Garcia are also unavailable, with knee and muscle injuries respectively. Chelsea will monitor the fitness of winger Mohamed Salah following his move from Basel. Salah missed Wednesday's derby against West Ham along with Fernando Torres, who is sidelined with a knee injury. It could be explosive. It's bound to be fascinating. Having been frustrated by West Ham's "19th Century football", Jose Mourinho now has to come up with a plan to counter football from another planet. Well, not quite, but football being played by "the best team on the planet", according to Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood. It's a match that pitches the Premier League's most potent attack against its tightest defence, which in itself shows the massive difference a change of coach can have on the ethos of a club. Last season Roberto Mancini's City were the most miserly team arou ...

Manchester - Manchester City galvanised their grip on second place in the English Premier League and trimmed Manchester United's lead back to 12 points with a 2-0 victory at home to nearest rivals Chelsea on Sunday. After Chelsea's Frank Lampard had seen a penalty saved by England colleague Joe Hart, City prevailed through a pair of fine second-half goals from man-of-the-match Yaya Toure and substitute Carlos Tevez. Although City's chances of retaining their league title remain decidedly slender, they now have a seven-point advantage over Chelsea, who could slip to fourth if Tottenham Hotspur overcome West Ham United on Monday. Both City manager Roberto Mancini and his Chelsea counterpart Rafael Benitez flooded their sides with midfielders at the Etihad Stadium, while Benitez opted to leave John Terry and Fernando Torres on thebench. City deployed Sergio Aguero as a lone striker and although he had to plough a lone furrow, it was the hosts who dominated the firsthalf. Visiting goalkeeper Petr Cech had to ...

This news comes in the same week that David Silva and Yaya Toure were named on the FIFPro midfielders shortlist, Vincent Kompany was recognised with a place on the defenders list and Joe Hart was one of only five goalkeepers put forward for the accolade. Mario´s is the only new name from 2011´s forwards list and has been rewarded for an inspired Euro 2012 showing for Italy where he tied with Fernando Torres for the Golden Boot with three goals, including two in the semi-final against Germany. As we told you last week, Sergio is officially one of the deadliest strikers in Premier League history, despite only landing on these shores 18 months ago. He became City´s first 30 goal striker in a decade last season and has started this season in similarly prolific style, with 11 goals for club and country so far. Considering that the forwards list contains the names of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who are joined by Andres Iniesta in the three-man shortlist for the Ballon d´Or itself, perhaps there will ...
According to France Football, who released figures for the best paid players in the world on Tuesday, Barcelona forward Messi raked in €33 million last year from wages and sponsorship deals. LA Galaxy midfielder and former England captain Beckham, for so long the game’s top earner, came in second on €31.5m, while Real Madrid star Ronaldo collected €29.2m in 2011. Elsewhere, Samuel Eto’o, who made a lucrative move from Inter to Anzhi Makhachkala last summer, is fourth on the list, with Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney fifth. Wealthy Premier League outfit Manchester City have two players in the top ten, with Argentine forward Sergio Aguero and Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Toure sixth and seventh, respectively. The only other club represented twice are Madrid, with Ronaldo's team-mate Kaka ranking ninth. Elsewhere, it is worth noting that Chelsea misfit Fernando Torres, who finally got back amongst the goals at the weekend, netted €16.7m during his disastrous first 12 months at Stamford Brid ...
MATCH REPORT: CHELSEA 0 Manchester City 0 26-11-2012 It was a point apiece at the Bridgeas both Chelsea and Manchester City failed to find a breakthrough... Summary Rafael Benitez's reign as Chelsea interim manager saw the Blues and Manchester City play out a goalless draw, only the second occasion this season on which we've failed to score in the league. On reflection, it was probably a fair result, and while Roberto Mancini's side will feel they should have won it, Benitez will be pleased to have seen his men keep a clean sheet for the first time since the 4-0 win against Nordsjaelland at the beginning of last month. Pablo Zabaleta, David Silva and Sergio Aguero all wasted good chances for the away side in the first half, and after the break Ashley Cole cleared one off the line. Our best opportunity fell to Fernando Torres midway throughthe second half, but the striker fired over after a deflection had fallen kindly for him, while Joe Hart saved well to deny Cole. Attention now turns towards a crucial L ...
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.
City claim Community Shield Goals from Yaya Toure, Carlos Tevez and Samir Nasri saw Man City overturn a 1-0 deficit to win the Community Shield against Chelsea, who had Branislav Ivanovic sent off moments after Fernando Torres' opening goal. Ryan Bertrand scored late on to make it 3-2 and ensure a nervy finish.hmm
Uh! 10. Philipp Lahm Paid: £11.9 million He is captain of national team of Germany as well as captain of his club. Last year, he came up with his book on his football career and how to become good footballer and this year he is in top 10 highest paid football players. 9. Ricardo Kaka Paid: £12.9 million A god gifted sportsman, Kaka, who had choice to play either tennis or football and he chose football as his career which proved to be the right choice. He is an attacking midfielder and wears shirt number 8 but in the list of most paid footballers he gets 9th position. 8. Fernando Torres Paid: £13.9 million It’s really a great coincidence that man with shirt number 9 gets 8th rank. Fernando Torres is a fine striker of Chelsea and Spanish football team. He is promising player and many young footballers follow him especially his hair style. 7. Yaya Toure Paid: £14.7 million Yaya Toure is capable of all doing anything on the field. He adopts to circumstances very quickly. He can attack with full speed w ...
