Wolfsburg had sold their price asset their midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to Manchester City for a huge sum of 55 , fifty five million pounds. But they used that money to buy the German world cup midfielder Julian Draxler from schalke for a huge amount. Now the two clubs have not said anything as yet of the actual figure so far. But the president of Schalke have said that the amount is huge in a sense it is a record for Schake we my say.
The Mexican striker Javier Hernandez has been told by Louis Van Gaal that he can very well leave Manchester United . And he was spotted in Germany with the talk that he is joining a club in Germany. And the club he most likely join up is Bayer Leverkusen. He was a gifted striker with a knack of scoring important goals for the club, even though he came as a substitute quite often. He was got to the club by Alex Ferguson and he is often called THE PEA. It is said that the price for Javier Hernandez is nine million pounds to join bayern Leverkusen.
Juventus wanted to sign Samir Nasri from Manchester city. The reason for this now manchester City have a lot of players in the midfield like David Silva , and others now with Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne joining on the chances for Samir Nasri have become less . But samir Nasri stubbornly decided to stay and warm the bench.
The German paper the BILD has revealed to us a real shocker that the sale of Bastian Schweinsteiger really did cost Manchester United 6.5 million pounds and not 15, fifteen million pounds. Maybe it was because as Pep Guardiola says Bastian Schweinsteiger was always injured for the past four years at Bayern Munich. And he has not yet started a single game for Manchester United as yet.He has called a fitness expert from Germany.
Eiber the Spanish club which was relegated on the last day in Spain last year, so upset was the manager of Eiber that he just walked out of the club in utter disappointment as he had failed. But this year they have taken the place of Elche , who finished thirteenth in the La Liga last year. Now Elche are relegated because their club had huge financial problems and was in the hands of a administrator . This time Eiber took full advantage of this golden chance they new very well opportunities like this do not come knocking twice. They defeated Granada 3-0 and defeated the basque club Atlético Bilbao 2-0. Th big question is where will Eiber end this season will they fizzle out or give the big clubs a good fight.
It now looks clear that David De Gea had flown out of England for madrid Spain. It is also reported in the press that Real madrid have offered Manchester United a sum of 25, twenty five million pounds , plus a player as well. The player is the Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas who covered himself with praise during the 2014 world cup in Brazil . But what has taken me surprise is that David De Gea would be available next year on a free transfer. Or it very well could be that with the departure of Iker Casillas they needed a good goalkeeper to keep up with Barcelona in Spain . But it looks the weekly salary of Keylor Navas is a sticking point.
The Brazilian Neymar has made it very crystal clear that he will not be leaving F.C.Barcelona , and he will be staying at Barcelona only. But Barcelona have made it clear that they have a new buyout clause for Neymar now. And they will be sitting down for talks to make him a new long time contract as well. So it is good bye Manchester United and Louis Van Gaal.
In the E.P.L match played between Southampton vs Norwich City played on 30/8/2015. The Norwich City had their player Whittaker shown a red card for getting two yellow cards. But the referee Jonathan Moss for this match got his cards all wrong here. He showed Whittaker his notebook instead of the red card, but after a big laugh all around the pitch he got it right with a red card on the second attempt.

Manchester United have made a bid of 36, thirty six million pounds for the young teenager striker Anthony Martial from Monaco n France. Now this talented youngster is a lethal goal scorer and has scored roughly thirty goals last year. He is dubbed as THE NEW HENRY.. But many have come being dubbed THE NEW HENRY , but all fizzled out soon Loic Remy was the latest footballer to be dubbed. But only a day or so will remain of the transfer market.
Jose Mourinho and Chelsea might very often have regretted selling the Spaniard Juan Mata to Manchester United for a very huge sum of 37 , thirty seven million pounds. Mind you he was the Chelsea footballer of the year for two years running so no doubt he was a highly talented footballer. Now if we look at his game after joining Manchester United it has been very good. He has now scored a total of 30, thirty goals for Manchester United and also has a total of thirty assists as well. But Chelsea may say that they were trying to balance their books, as THE FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE was very much there.
Yes it must be sounding rather to hard on Wayne Rooney, to suggest that he must be replaced very soon. Let us take his performance in the E.P.L match Manchester United versus Swansea City. played on 30/8/2015. During the first half of this particular match, in the first half Wayne Rooney had fewer touches of the ball then the Argentinean goalkeeper Sergio Romero of Manchester United ever had so it gives you very clear picture , a young and pacy striker must be got by Manchester United soon. Wayne Rooney is getting old and has put on weight as well.
There is no doubt about it this year is the worst start Chelsea has ever had since the year 1971, or you very well say 44, forty four years. In four matches of the 2015/2016 E.P.L season Chelsea have conceded seven goals. Their players like Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas,Nemanja Matic and even Eden hazard are just shadows of last year title winning team, Oscar is not playing at all. And when Jose Mourinho fires Chelsea's last years player of the year Eden Hazard left and right , then Chelsea have a major problem. And another player being beaten often this season is the right back Branislav Ivanovic.
It is reported in THE METRO that Manchester United have made a very huge and desperate bid to buy the Welsh winger Gareth Bale from Real Madrid. The price offered for the speedy Welsh winger was a massive 72.5 million pounds. But the deal is bound to collapse as Rafael Benitez has clearly said that the Real Madrid team this season will work around Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo, so there is no chance whatsoever for this deal to go through as there are not many days left nor s the Real madrid club keen to sell their star .
The Argentinean defender Nicolas Otamendi, decided to join Manchester City instead of Manchester United in the end, both clubs were willing to pay Valencia the buyout clause of 35, thirty five million pounds. Then why did he join Manchester City right at the end? The reason was that his fellow country footballer and now colleague at Manchester City Sergio Aguero convinced him over a phone call that Manchester City was a far better club to join then Manchester United. So he joined Manchester City in the end , a wise decision I must say.
Manchester City have now signed the Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne from Wolfsburg in Germany. He becomes the costliest transfer in this summer transfer so far he will cost 56 , fifty six million pounds . But he will cost Manchester City a staggering 113 million pounds, so let us break it up he has signed a five year contract with Manchester City, and he will be getting a weekly salary of 220,000 pounds, so in five years he will be paid 57 , fifty seven million pounds yes this is before tax cuts. So 56 and 57 million pounds add up to 113 million pounds. Now Manchester City have spent 150 , one hundred and fifty million pounds this transfer alone.
Things looked really bright for Victor Valdes is it because he was Spanish , and not liked by Louis Van Gaal? All the Spanish players at Manchester United are having a tough time there like Andres Herrera , David De Gea and even Victor Valdes , only Juan Mata is playing regularly . o it was expected that the Turkish club Besiktas are not buying Victor Valdes after all . Besiktas want to strengthen heir team in other places and not at the goal right now. It was also because of this that Pedro Rodriguez a close friend of of Victor Valdes decided to join Chelsea instead , yes Cesc Fabregas did play a big part in the transfer of Pedro Rodriguez .
According to THE INDEPENDENT Real Madrid could very well buy the Spaniard David De Gea , who plays as a goalkeeper for Manchester United in the E.P.L. But the price is a 29, twenty nine million pounds. But it has to be finally done with a cash payment as well as a medical completed as well. And please bear in mind that as only a few days are left many crazy stories will be out 8in the Media. And it is also said Manchester United will buy the Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen from Ajax.
The transfer of the Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne from Wolfsburg to Manchester City was almost over . As the German car company Volkswagen , who are also the main sponsor of Wolfsburg protested and bayern Munich cae in the picture , they the car company Volkswagen wanted the Belgian to be sold to Bayern Munich instead. This made the price of the footballer rise sharply from 52, fifty two million it reached fifty four million and now it could be finally settled at 58.5 million pounds, and the transfer could be done soon.

West Ham defeated Liverpool with a score of 3-0. Now it was a big game and a bigger win for West Ham United. Both Philippe Coutinho and Mark Noble got red cards. But why was this such a big win for West Ham United? Because this was a glorious win after 52, fifty two long years instead. We could put it better this way. The last time West Ham United beat Liverpool was back in the 1960s when they had the famous Sir Bobby Moore in their team Sir Bobby Moore won the 1966 world cup for England in England.
The Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne ,who was considered a flop at Chelsea but was sold to the German club Wolfsburg for 18, eighteen million pounds. Has now had a medical at Cheshire hospital and will be a Manchester City player within twenty four hours. But a private jet got him from Germany and his fiance as well. Now he will be costing a total of 52, fifty two million pounds, Wolfsburg were first asking for 54, fifty four million pounds, it looks everything is ironed out to fifty two million pounds. Now he is also the costliest footballer in the Manchester City team Football is so very funny here a flop is now a big hit in Germany and is now sold for fifty two million pounds , imagine that.
Arsenal are very famous for developing young and talented players,, they buy them cheap and sell them for a big profit later on. Players like Nicolas Anelka who joined Arsenal from P.S.G for 500,000 pounds, and sold him to Real Madrid for 23 million pounds is a example. They have now signed a young fifteen year old boy called Harry Clarke from Ipswich Town for 100,000 pounds only.
After Luis Suarez was sold by Liverpool to Barcelona in Spain for a sum of 75, seventy five million pounds. Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers spent a total of 117 million pounds on eight players. Three have been given on loan one is sold again . This is what Tottenham Hotspurs did with their 86, Eighty six million pounds which they got for selling their Welsh winger Gareth Bale. Players were just average or big flops like Paulinho And Mario Balotelli.
It looks very doubtful that Chelsea will buy Paul Pogba from Juventus this summer though. As Juventus want to sell him for 70,seventy million pounds quite a large amount for a 22, twenty two year old I must say. But he is also demanding a very huge weekly salary of over 300,000 pounds. And that will add up to a huge sum as he wants a five year contract at Chelsea. But Barcelona had promised him a weekly salary of 318,000 pounds, and that will work out to 16.5 million pounds a year. Now the highest paid footballer at Chelsea is the Belgian Eden Hazard, who is getting 250,000 pounds a week.Then Chelsea will have to change their wage structure. By the way Lionel Messi is getting a yearly salary of 14.6 . million pounds at Barcelona.
Manchester United are making a very late offer to buy the Welsh winger Gareth Bale from the Spanish giants Real Madrid. gareth Bale was brought from Tottenham Hotspurs for a new world record price of 86, eighty six million pounds. But Louis Van Gaal is trying to buy Gareth Bale by paying huge amount of cash and also adding a player in the deal. He is now offering sixty five million pounds as cash and the Spanish goalkeeper as well in the deal. David De Gea was valued at 34, thirty four million pounds. But that is a inflated price for the goalkeeper I must say , 24 , twenty four million would be more realistic price I would say. Mind you David De Gea is was got from Atletico Madrid in Spain for eighteen million pounds.He is not sitting on the bench even. Now with four days remaining isnt it a bit to late for a transfer of a costly player.

David sullivan the Chairman of west ham United has come out to say, that his club West Ham united were just three hours from signing the Spaniard Rafael Benitez , as the manager of West ham united after the departure of Sam Allardyce. In fact it was almost a done deal everthing was agreed only the sign

Jose Mourinho who will make a trip with chelsea to play his old club F.C.Porto, it is bound to be a emotional time for him, after all he had won the champion League in the year 2004 . But Iker Casillas the former Real Madrid goalkeeper is now the goalkeeper at F.C.Porto. He has already said that Chelsea should take nothing for granted here this Champion League season.

THE DAILY MIRROR has said that Everton have rejected the latest bid for John Stones it was a huge 37 , thirty seven million pounds. This is a new record for a defender in England. The previous record stood at 32, thirty two million pounds for Eliaquim Mangala , who was got by Manchester City last year. But this record offer was also flatly rejected like all the others starting at 20, twenty, million pounds. Now Chelsea will have to rethink of what is to be done,as there are only few days left for the transfer window to close.. And the Chelsea defence has been cut repeatedly.
The Swedish club Malmo whose favorite son is the famous Zalatan Ibrahimovic, who at the age of 17 years left to join Ajax OF Amsterdam in Holland he later played for clubs like Juventus, A.C.Milan, Barcelona and P.S.G. Now in this years champion league competition Malmo play P.S.G . So let us see who will win this great fight or will it be a david and Goliath fight with a surprise winner.
The transfer of the young Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to Manchester City from the German club Wolfsburg , for a very huge sum of 58, fifty eight million pounds has now hit the rocks in a big way now. It was thought that he would be on his way to Manchester City for a medical , but it is not so. It looks like Wolfsburg are not that keen to sell their star to Manchester City during this summer transfer. In fact it has been told that the German giants Bayern Munich are also keen to sign him, but they want him next year and not this season, by then Arjen Robben may not be there at Bayern Munich. But what we must remember here is that Wolfsburg paid a sum of 18, eighteen million pounds for Kevin De Bruyne from Chelsea a year or so ago as he had a terrible time at Chelsea. Now that means if he was sold to Manchester City for 58 million pounds, then Wolfsburg would have made a huge profit of 40, forty million pounds , it will take time for this to sink in.
The Serbian striker Lazor Markovic who was purchased by Liverpool for a huge sum of 20, twenty million pounds, last season but he was a flop when you consider that he scored only two goals in eleven games,. But this season he will be on a season long loan with the Turkish club Fenerbahce. He will play at Fenerbahce along with other famous players who played in the E.p.L Luis Nani, Robin Van Persie . He may get more playing times with Fenerbahce then what he got at Liverpool for asure as Fenerbahce have got other few footballers as well and want to challenge Galatasaray for the title.
The Argentinean footballer Linoel Messi who is playing his club fotball with the Spaanish giants F.C.Barcelona since a boy has now won the European Fottballer of the year . He defeated both Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo to win the award this year. This is his first individual award for the year.
Manchester United are willing to pay Lazio 32.8 million pounds for their Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson. As Lazio were knocked out of this years Champion League playoffs by the German club Bayern Leverkusen And at the same time Manchester United cleared their Champion League playoffs against the Belgian club F.C.Brugge. But the Felipe Anderson would love nothing better then play in the Champion League. but only a little over four days remain of the transfer window .
The Brazilian striker Neymar of Barcelona has this to say about the stories in the press that Manchester United were willing to buy Neymar for 240 Million Pounds. Neymar is getting a yearly salary at Barcelona of 6.4 Million Pounds. He says he is not willing to transfer from Barcelona to Manchester United, he has no desire whatsoever to swap a deal of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez for Ashley Young and Wayne Rooney. Mind you last year these three strikers at Barcelona, Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi scored a total of 122 goals ladst season a new Spanish record.
Chelsea now have a total of 26, twenty six players playing for a lot of clubs like Juventus to Turkeyand lower division in England as well. But Chelsea have a total of 25, twenty five players in their first team itself.
This is the list of the top five Barcelona players and their yearly earnings. 1) Lionel Messi. 14.6. Million Pounds. 2)Luis suarez. 7.3. Million Pounds. 3) NEYMAR. 6.4. MILLION POUNDS. 4) Andres Iniesta. 5.5. MILLION POUNDS. 5) Ivan Rakitic. 5.1. Million Pounds. Please kindly note between these two strikers Lionel Messi Luis Suarez their salary is exactly half the amount.
Barcelona have every right as a club to increase the buyout of the Brazilian striker Neymar, it was originally standing at 142, one hundred and forty two million pounds. But after stories in the press in England , that Manchester United were willing to buy Neymar for 240 million pounds . Barcelona have acted swiftly raising his buyout clause to 182, one hundred and eighty two million pounds.It is a new buyout clause it is now equal with the buyout clause of the Argentinean striker Lionel Messi at Barcelona, which also stands out at 182 million pounds. But Barcelona will sit down to thrash out a new five year contract at the end of December. The president of Barcelona has said we want Neymar to retire at Barcelona.
Usually each year there are only four Spanish clubs in the champion League in the group of 32, thirty two clubs taking part. It s always Barcelona , Real Madrid , Atletico Madrid and then as forth club , this year it is Seville, but this year the fifth club Valencia have made it by defeating Monaco in the play offs.

The French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin , who joined Manchester United from Southampton for 25, twenty five million pounds, and he wanted to have the jersey number 8, eight. But this is why he did not get it , the number eight jersey is worn by Juan Mata at Manchester United , Juan Mata said he had no problem in giving him the number eight jersey, then Juan Mata wanted jersey number 10, ten worn by Wayne Rooney, and Wayne Rooney refused to give him that number ten jersey so now Morgan Schneiderlin has to wear the jersey number twenty eight , 28.
The highly talented midfielder from Poland , who is playing his club football in Spain with Seville . Now it was reported that Arsenal were indeed very keen to buy him but it now appears that he no longer wants to move in this transfer window. But he could make a move to Arsenal in the summer transfer next year to Arsenal. This year Arsenal are more keen to sign a very good striker.
Now that A.C.Milan have decided to take the ITalian striker of Ghanaian parents , on a year long loan. But A.C.Milan have made it very clear he will have to follow the rules set for him in the loan contract. 1) He will not be allowed to drink and smoke. 2) He will have to be the first to be at the ground and last to leave. 3) He will not be allowed to have these crazy haircuts or crazy clothes while at A.C.Milan. 4) He will not be allowed those late nights. 5) His Facebook, Instagram and EMails will be strictly monitored . He will have to be on his best behavior with players and staff . As he is quite eccentric by nature and i capable of doing strange things, like at Manchester City he threw darts at his team mates , set fireworks in the rented house , he burned the toilet and then the rented house. He even once faked a hamstring injury to go and buy a Apple IPhone6.
Arsenal are seriously thinking of signing the left back from the French club Lorient . He is now being targeted as the talk of the Spaniard Nacho Monreal , who is playing as left back at Arsenal , could very well be on his way back to Spain and play for the Basque club Athletic Bilbao. Raphael Guerrero is cost value is just ten million pounds.
Manchester United can not expect Wayne Rooney to score the goals and win matches , he has passed it I must say. In 17, seventeen months Wayne Rooney has scored just one goal. A striker of his class should score a minimum 20, twenty goals in a season. So really is this blip or a decline in the form of Wayne Rooney.
Manchester United are trying to hijack the John Stones transfer from Everton to Chelsea for forty million pounds. manchester United are trying to offer a player plus some cash to buy John Stones . First Johnny Evans was offered in the transfer deal , but Roberto Martinez thought that Johnny Evans was not up to the same class as a defender to John Stones, now Phil Jones will e seen as the real transfer pawn. Jose mourinho is sure to be hopping mad when he hears Manchester United have stolen John Stones under his nose.
The sporting director of Bayern Munich has said in THE BILD , that Bayern Munich are on the verge of giving Thomas Muller a new better contract to keep him at the German giants for years to come. They will also make a big improvement in his present weekly salary that now stands at 110,000 pounds. It could easily increase to 150,000 pounds to a 180,000 pounds . In other words Manchester United's hope of signing Thomas Muller is well and truly over I must say.
Arsenal could very well sign a new striker and he is the free scoring Russian Alexander Kokorin, from the Russian club Dynamo Moscow , and he also is laying for Russia. We must be honest here Arsene Wenger is looking for a striker who can score yearly a total of 20, twenty goals to 25 twenty five goals each season.The big headache he has is none are there to be sold , so the big story of Karim Benzema started doing its rounds even though Arsene Wenger was leased bit interested in signing him. And it is the practice of Arsene Wenger to t reach a agreement in confidential manner, and when a deal is done he will announce it.Mesut Ozil, Andrei Arshavin , AndreyAndrey Sandro wee all done in the last day of the transfer it was completed just a few minutes before closing. And now Alexander Kokorin is wanted by P.S.G, Zenit St Petersburg are keen to sign Alexander Kokorin as well.
The highly talented Polish footballer who plays his club football in Germany with BOrussia Dortmund, he is by trade a midfielder, who also has scored a total of 29, twenty nine goals for Borussia Dortmund.He is Jakub Blaszczykowski. But according to JUST TALK , he has not played a single minute in the three seasons games so far. And he now wants to leave the Club. Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspurs as well as Real Betis are keen to buy him. But the problem facing Real Betis is that Jacub Blaszczykowski has a huge salary it is 1.8 million pounds a year, which may force Real Betis to look elsewhere.
The Spanish goalkeeper Victor Valdes who was from Barcelona's famous youth academy La Masia, had joined Manchester United on a free transfer, but in all his time he has spent at Manchester United he got to play in only two matches, and even when the David De Gea problem was there he was not played, instead Louis Van Gaal went and got the Argentinean goalkeeper Sergio Romero on a free transfer from Sampdoria in Italy. As Pedro Rodriguez says he chose Chelsea as Louis Van Gaal doesn't like Spanish footballers, not only victor Valdes who was Pedro big friend and team mate at THE LA MASIA and Barcelona , even David De Gea as given a cold shoulder , and even Andres Herrera last years star at Manchester United has not even kicked the ball this season. Victor Valdes will sign for Besiktas on a two year deal.
Tuesday, August 25, 2015
It looks very much as if Louis Van Gall just does not know which of his players will play where on the pitch. Is it a case of far to many players to choose from, and not signing a recognized striker. Now Louis Van Gall wants to let the big Belgian Maroune Fellini, who is a midfielder by trade and not a regular striker. He will now play the role of number nine player or even ten number. But I doubt it will work. He still wants to sign Thomas Muller from Bayern Munich. Which is not going to happen. And neither the big hope of signing Neymar from Barcelona. Barcelona have clearly said that they want to keep Neymar at the club and he could very well retire there.
Arsenal over the years had many brilliant transfers like Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Marc Overmars, Patrick Vieira , just to name a few of them. But the big surprise was it was won by Cesc Fabregas who won thirty two percent vote. Cesc Fabregas joined Arsenal from Barcelona in the year 2003, he was captain of Spain's under 17 world cup team. Barcelona told Arsene Wenger that he would not be allowed to watch Cesc Fabregas play for Barcelona at Camp Nou . So Arsene Wenger flew to Finland in 2003 to watch Cesc Fabregas play and also win the golden boot.He was promised first team playing time as well as Champion League matches as well. He signed up for Arsenal and later became captain as well. He signed and played for Arsenal till 2011, before joining Barcelona again.
Let us get one thing clear Arsene Wenger is a manager who will not spend millions on a player unless he is really good. Let us see this list Angel Di Maria, Juan Cuadrado , Mario Balotelli, Luis Felipe were brought for a total of over 12, one hundred and twenty million pounds, and a year late they are all gone from the E.P.L. This is not being arrogant .but he is careful who he buys. Let us be honest there are no strikers free for sale, Thomas Muller, Karim Benzema, Robert Lewandowski , Gonzalo Higuain and others are not for sale , so from where would Arsene Wenger buy a striker , the only one is a 33 year old Zalatan Ibrahimovic for five million pounds. And get it clear players like Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira can not be made they are icons come once in a lifetime only.Copying them will not work here. And by the way for those who do not know it, Arsene Wenger has Masters in Economics , so he buys players cheaply and sells them for big money.For example Nicolas Anelka he got him for 50,000 pounds and sold him to Real Madrid for 23, twenty three million pounds.
It is reported in THE METRO that the Brazilian born but he plays for Spain instead, who was on fire for Chelsea last year and was also among the goals as well. But there are no signs whatsoever that he Diego Costa is unhappy at the club. But on a holiday Ibze Diego Costa accidently met the chief executive of Atletico Madrid Miguel Angel Gil. After all Diego Costa once played for Atletico Madrid , and was sold to Chelsea for 32 million pounds. He told Miguel Angel Gil that he wants to return to Spain and play once again for the Vicente Calderon club of Atletico Madrid from Chelsea, but will Chelsea let him go so soon, on a later date yes he may be sold but not now. I wonder if he is feeling homesick , a common thing with Spanish footballers.
In the last two days we are hearing a lot of stories concerning Neymar and his move from F.C.Barcelona to Manchester United. It was even reported that Manchester United were even keen to pay out his buyout clause at Barcelona which is a very huge sum 137.8 million pounds to be exact. It said that Manchester United would buy him for 140, one hundred and forty million pounds. And would be willing to pay a lot as add ons and even as a huge bonus reaching a combined amount of 240 million pounds, this is a crazy figure by all standards. But the Barcelona president has thrown ice cold water on the story , and has said Neymar is not going anywhere and he wants Neymar to retire as well at Barcelona like Lionel Messi. Now another story in the DAILY MIRROR says Neymar will be bringing his girlfriend and their son to Barcelona from Brazil, so this should close the stories for good, why would he bring them to Barcelona and then take them to England. Is this his trick to get a better and juicy contract at Barcelona? Time will tell.
1) Manchester United. wealth. 1,848 Million Pounds. 2) Arsenal. Wealth. 1,118. Million Pounds. 3)Manchester City. Wealth. 907. Million Pounds. 4) Chelsea. Wealth. 826. Million Pounds. 5) Tottenham Hotspurs. Wealth. 710. Million Pounds. 6)Liverpool. Wealth. 537. Million Pounds. 7)Southampton. Wealth. 259. Million Pounds. 8)Newcastle United. Wealth. 221.

So there are only two clubs who have wealth of over a Billion Pounds Manchester United and Arsenal. .
If we examine the goal ratio between the two French strikers , we will clearly notice that there is no big difference between them. While Oliver Giroud has now played 99 games for Arsenal , since he moved from Montpelier . He has scored 43 goals as well. Karim Benzema has played 93 Games for Real Madrid and has scored 43 Goals. So nothing big between the two French strikers , Benzema can stay at Real Madrid, Arsene Wenger is not paying 50, fifty million pounds or a weekly salary of 150,000 pounds.
Arsenal are london's only club worth over a Billion Pounds , and n some called Arsenal a small club.They have even dwarfed both Chelsea as well as Tottenham Hotspurs. The total of Arsenals wealth is 1.118. Million Pounds. While Chelsea have a total wealth of 826. Million Pounds. And Tottenham Hotspurs are third total club wealth is 710. Million Pounds. And Lucas Toni and Steven Jovetic called Arsenal a small club.
In the match between Arsenal and Liverpool Aaron Ramsey clearly had a legal disallowed as the linesman gave it offside , when Aaron Ramsey was miles from being offside. Maybe just maybe Aaron Ramsey's eyelash was offside. The standard of the English referring is getting bad to worse . Last week it was christian Benteke who was allowed a offside goal and now Arsenal robbed of a precious goal. I suggest that each referee and linesmen must be wearing glasses to see properly. And the referee Mr Oliver should be demoted to the forth tier football in England, along with the linesmen. May I ask what ever happened to the fourteen cameras and the goal line technology that is compulsory now . Or Does the English F.A want Manchester City , Chelsea or Manchester United win the fixed up title in may , what a shame. We In India could see it was not an offside.

According to reports in THE DAILY MIRROR as well as in Brazil , Manchester United have made a huge bid of about 140 , one hundred and forty million pounds for the Brazilian Neymar from F.C.Barcelona. This amount of 140 million pounds could just be equal to his buy out clause, Louis Van Gaal has now clearly lost his marbles here we all know that this is spending crazy money, it might be belonging to Manchester United given as sponsor money by ADIDAS , they gave a total of 750 million pounds. But this amount in the bid could even cross 240 million pounds finally. But what we must remember is that Neymar was not at all unhappy at Barcelona, he is loved by the Catolonya fans This is mainly a story by the Media to make juicy reading. And because Wayne Rooney has been out of form at Manchester United, he has not scored a single goal in ten matches or 858 minutes of play.
The Ajax goalkeeper Jasper Ceillessen a long time target for Manchester United's manager Louis Van Gaal, to replace the Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea who is wanting to leave Manchester United and move to Real Madrid, the move failed as Manchester United wanted Real Madrid to add Sergio Ramos in the transfer deal. Now Jasper Ceillessen has said nether he nor his agent has heard anything from either Louis Van Gaal or from his agent . So he will definitely be starting the first game for Ajax as well as the last game for Ajax in 2015/2016 season.
Arsene Wenger has said he is indeed tempted to splash the cash for the German holding midfielder Lars Bender , who is a holding midfielder with the German club Bayern Leverkusen. It is said Arsenal scouts had gone to watch him play in the Champion League playoffs between Lazio and Bayern Leverkusen. It is also said that his price is eighteen million pounds,but only eight days of the transfer market are opened to buy or sell a player. By the way he also has a twin brother who is also a footballer, and is now playing in the Bundesliga.
As Nicolas Gaitan is playing his club football with Benfica in Portugal and is wanted badly by Louis Van Gaal at Manchester United. Now Jorge Mendes is a famous agent for very big footballers and managers as well, he is the manager of Cristiano Ronaldo, Radamel Falcao and Jose Mourinho as well. But he is not the regular agent of Nicolas gaitan , but he was pulled in to do ironing out in this transfer only as Nicolas Gaitans agent was taking far to long to finish the deal And the transfer window will officially close on 1/9/2015, Louis Van Gaal is in a big hurry to get it done.
This is really true that due to financial problems in Spain clubs have been forced to sell their op players abroad for money.But these eleven players could beat any English club any day. !)Goalkeeper. David De Gea. 2) Defenders. Hector Bellerin, Marc Musiera, Cesar Azpilicueta. 3) Midfielders Juan Mata, Santiago Cazorla , Andrés Herrera ,Cesc Fabregas, David Silva. 4) Striker Pedro Rodriguez, Diego Costa.
The young and highly talented Brazilian striker Neymar will be now signing a new contract at Barcelona for sure, as the manager of Barcelona Luis Enrique is not at all interested in the topic of Neymars sale to Manchester United. As these are all stories that come out in the last ten days of the transfer window remaining open. Now the present contract of Neymar has his buy out clause standing at 137.8 million pounds, it hard to guess what the new contract will have as his buy out clause it could cross 175 million pounds for sure. Well honestly speaking nobody on earth would like to spoil a successful strike trio of Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi. Last year these three strikers scored 122 goals a new record for Barcelona
The Spaniard Cesc Fabregas who had a very good time on the field fr both Arsenal as well as for Barcelona, and in the last season he made a total of eighteen assists, and his Spanish , but Brazilian team mate Diego Costa was in for the assists to score a lot of goals. But this season both of them have just been chasing shadows and not been good at all, adding to the troubles of John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic on the pitch for Jose Mourinho. So in the end Arsene Wenger was very correct in not buying Cesc Fabregas , when they had the first choice to buy him. Last year the Arsenal fans were after the blood of Arsene Wenger for not buying Cesc Fabregas back, especially after the Stoke City match.
The everton director Mr John woods has said that John Stones is not for sale , as he is young and being groomed for the post of being a future captain.And besides if the deal goes through then Everton will not be selling John Stones for any price during this summer transfer window for sure. It is even being reported in the press that John Stones could very well be the future captain of England.
The French defender Raphael Varane , who is playing his club football with real Madrid, but sadly he is more on the bench then on the field. But now there is hope for him, as Chelsea have found out suddenly that John Terry was getting old, he is 35 in December 2015.. And Chelsea failed to replace him , or for the matter buy a younger defender. Chelsea have offered thirty million pounds for John Stones, but that is not yet done. John Terry was substituted in the first match and in the match with Newcastle United he saw a straight red card as well, a nightmare start you can say. Now Raphael Varane is keen to join Chelsea the reason being Real Madrid have now given both the defenders Sergio Ramos and Pepe new contracts and that only means more games on the bench for raphael Varane. But Raphael Varane is to good a defender so Real Madrid may not sell him.

The Manchester manager Louis Van Gaal must be quite idiotic to think that Manchester United do not need a striker. In the three matches Manchester United has played in the 2015/2016 season they had scored two goals only . One was a own goal and in the second match a defected goal, and the third E.P.L match ended goaless .Wayne Rooney their main goal scorer over the years has not scored a goal in ten club matches , he has gone 858 minutes without scoring a single goal. So readers decide whether Manchester United need a striker or not. The Neymar bid is not even done.
It looks more likely that the executive Ed Woodward who had flown down to Spain in an attempt to sign Pedro Rodriguez from Barcelona. But it just did not work out that way for him. it looks like Manchester United went to sleep in the Pedro Rodriguez transfer and Chelsea signed him up for 21 million pounds. But it now appears the Executive was in Barcelona for talks on the sale of the Brazilian striker Neymar, who now has a buy out clause of 137.8 million pounds.I wonder what his weekly salary will be like at Manchester United. And Manchester United with all the money including millions paid by ADIDAS , 750 million pounds to be correct, it is very, very unlikely that Manchester United will spend that much 137.8 million pounds on one player only. It will be a very big gamble , as all footballers do not click in England example Sebastian Veron, Andrei Shevchenko.
Rafael Benitez and mighty Real Madrid better watch out now, Real madrid might have won the Spanish Liga 32 , thirty two times, and Barcelona have won it 23 , twenty three times, but there is no doubt about it Barcelona are catching up with the mighty Real Madrid club. For the last time Real Madrid won the Spanish title was in 2007/20008. And mind you Cristiano ronaldo and Sergio Ramos and others are getting older as well. So if they do not win the title you can be sure Rafael Benitez will be sacked.
Things are sure getting hot and exciting at Arsenal. It is reported that Arsenal have hired a private jet to fly to Madrid and bring back Karim Benzema , he will have a medical and be introduced as a Arsenal player before the E.P.L match with Liverpool you see. So if you remember well it has been a long week since Rodney Marsh , a person who is seldom wrong said hat Real Madrid had accepted a fee for Karim Benzema from Arsenal. The second striker on the Arsenal radar is the famous Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani , who is not at all happy at P.S.G , and wants to leave P.S.G. These two are naturally born lethal strikers welcomed at any club with opened arms, mind you they do not come cheap either. Arsenal have said that they will make a bid for Edinson Cavani before the last day, it might have even been made as Arsene Wenger will tell whenit is all done.
The Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has said that Manchester United was just fantastic in the match in the E.p.L versus Newcastle United., the game ended in a 0-0 draw. The 25 million pounds Memphis Depay lost the ball the most among all the players. The former Manchester United midfielder and legend Paul Scholes hit out angrily at Louis Van Gaal, saying there was nothing fantastic in that boring game. What is worrying at Manchester United's Wayne Rooney missed a open goal, and has now failed to score a single goal in ten matches now or you can say 859 minutes in all competition so far. And Louis Van Gaal says they do not need to sign a striker as yet.
John Terry the Chelsea captain is now acing very uncertain days ahead of him. It now appears Chelsea are now n a look out for a recognized defender w, who is also young and can play for some years at Chelsea. They Chelsea are now considering the young French defender Raphael Varane.. But the big question is will the Spanish giants Real Madrid be willing to sell their good defender.?
Saturday, August 22, 2015
Manchester United are now keen to sign the French striker from Real Madrid Karim Benzema, mind you all the very hard talking , bargaining, and even sleepless nights when Arsenal talked it out for his transfer . Now Manchester United wake up from their slumber as Pedro Rodriguez slipped through their fingers early on, now they hope to catch Karim Benzema if he slips from the grasp of Arsenal, which i doubt will happen, Arsene Wenger is a shrewd man and there will be no slip ups. Meanwhile Manchester United have a striker problem Wayne Rooney is no longer the Wayne Rooney of old. It is also repored that Masnchester United want to pay the buy out clause of 137.8 million pounds for Neymar even.
The Colombian striker Radamel Falcao Garcia, may surprise many that he was a very big hit at F.C.Porto and Atletico Madrid in Spain. But he is now a shadow of himself a very big flop at Manchester United and at Chelsea he is not even seen on the pitch , goals are a distant thing here.Even though he scored sacks of them at F.C.Porto and Atletico Madrid.. But it is hard to point out why this drought of goals for a very talented player, after all form may dip but class is permanent. By the way this may surprise you all He has his roots in England with Yorkshire , his great grandfather came from there. But he is one of the ten richest footballer his wealth is 35 .4 million Dollars.
The great fantastic footballer Francesco Totti who like Paolo Maldini is a one club player , Francesco Totti played all his 24, twenty four years for A.S.Roma while Paolo Maldini played his entire career at A.c.Milan till he was 40, forty years old. Now Francesco Totti will also sign a new contract that will keep at A.S.Roma till he is also 40 , forty years The main difference between these two highly talented players is that Francesco Totti is a striker so more running around, while Paolo Maldini is a defender. All the same some record to hold I must say.
Arsenal had sent their scouts to watch the Europa League match played between Bayern Leverkusen and the Italian club Lazio. The player Arsenal scouts were very clean to watch was Lars Bender who is a midfielder. It is no secret that Arsene Wenger always wanted Lars Bender , he was very much interested in him two years ago as well. It now looks more likely that a bid for him will be made. By the way Lars Bender has a twin brother who is also a professional footballer in the Bundesliga. Arsenal are willing to pay eighteen million pounds for him.
Antonio Sanz the agent of Pedro Rodriguez has openly said that manchester United just went to sleep over the transfer deal of Pedro Rodriguez. Or it is quite possible that they were very, very sure of signing Pedro Rodriguez from Barcelona.. But Chelsea acted swiftly Cesc Fabregas spoke to Pedro Rodriguez over the phone and convinced him Chelsea was the better team to play for, affter all both are Spanish national and former Barcelona players , friends you could say. Chelsea in a whirlwind deal in twenty four hours had it all done and signed as well. Manchester United can easily say now, that they pulled out the plug. Easy to say this after the bird has flwn away.
The Italian giants Juventus have flatly rejected the offer for Paul Pogba , in fact Chelsea were very keen to buy him for 70, seventy million pounds, quite a huge amount for a 22 year old boy you must agree to. But it was flatly rejected by the Juventus club without a thought about it. Some say why they did not take the seventy millin pounds for Paul Pogba and sell him. The main reason why Juventus did not sell Paul Pogba was in this transfer window Juventus have lost two very good midfielders Andres Pirlo to the M.L.S and Arturo Vidal to Bayern Munich , Arturo Vidal has taken the place of Bastian Schweinsteiger , who was sold to Manchester United.
It is true but sad at the sametime John Terry who will be 35, years in December 2015 has aged suddenly and that is neither a crime or something to be ashamed of. Now it is very clear Chelsea will have to buy a young central defender and soon. When Jose Mourinho took John Terry off at half time the message was sent loud and clear to Roman Abramovich to shell money to buy a good defender. But sadly the Chelsea right back Branislav Ivanovic is also old 31 years .
The Italian giants Juventus of Turin, have flatly rejected the 70, seventy million pounds Chelsea were willing to buy the young 22 year old French midfielder Paul Pogba. Juventus have very clearly said Paul Pogba is NOT TRANSFERABLE AT ANY PRICE NOW. The Russian Billionaire owner of Chelsea Roman Abramovich was ready to sign a hundred million pound cheque for Paul Pogba 70 million pounds and forty million pounds for John Stones.

It is reported in THE SUN that Manchester United are in secret talks with the Brazilian striker Neymar . Neymar now plays his club football in Spain, with the Spanish giants F.C.Barcelona. But it is doubtful that Barcelona will sell their striker , last year Neymar along with the other strikers at Barcelona Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez scored a record of 122, one hundred and twenty two goals. And Luis Enrique will have no desire what so ever to break up this fantastic strike trio . In fact Pedro Rodriguez was not getting a starting place at F.C.Barcelona because of them. And by the way Neymar has a buy out clause of 137.8 million pounds, and Barcelona are in talks to give Neymar a new bumper contract, and Manchester United will have to pay the full buy out clause of 137.8 million pounds.
Arsenal are keen to buy the Portuguese midfielder Joao Moutinho who is now playing his club football in France with Monaco. Now a great deal will depend here on if Monaco reach the champion league after all. In the champion League playoffs Valencia have a 3-1 advantage in the first leg, now Monaco will have to really play well and score more goals then what they did in the first leg. And if by any chance Monaco will be knocked out, then he will surely ask for a transfer to Arsenal.
The Russian Billionaire Roman Abramovich has now willing to open his chequebook to sign these two players for Chelsea. The amount he has given the green light to sign are John Stones from Everton , for a sum of forty million pounds. And the French midfielder Paul Pogba for sixty million pounds , making the total exactly a hundred million pounds. I wonder if this is correct ,here Roman Abramovich is buying the players and not Chelsea you see.
The Italian giants Juventus, also called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN, are said to want the Brazilian midfielder Willian from Chelsea. Now Willian is Jose Mourinho's favorite player mainly due to his hard work on the field. But now with Pedro Rodriguez joining Chelsea from Barcelona, he Willian may not get a starting place anymore. So Juventus are keen on him with the talk of Paul Pogba being sold as well a new player like Willian will do well at Juventus. But Chelsea had offered Willian to both P.S.G as well as Bayern Munich. Now P.S.G already have their share of E.U players , so it could very well be Bayern Munich he joins in the end.
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is the only manage ever to have rejected both jobs as manager with the Spanish giants Real Madrid as well as the German giants Bayern Munich , not many managers would have done this for sure, they would accept the job of managing big clubs with both hands stretched out. Bayern Munich wanted to sign Arsene Wenger before he took the Arsenal job even, in fact a few years back. The meeting was arranged in France in the city of Nice , and talks went of well in fact so well it was supposed to have been a dead and dusted thing only Arsene Wengers signature was required,but it was not done at all sadly and Arsene Wenger flew of to japan instead to manage a club there for a short time. Nobody knows why it was not signed and done at Nice.
Arsene Wenger the Arsenal manager has one thing in his resume that even Jose Mourinho does not have or never will have. Arsene Wenger had only two agents one was Marc Rogers and the other one was Santos Marquez.. The Thing that Arsene Wenger has is that he is the only top manager to reject the offer of Real Madrid to be their manager, Florentino Perez was dead on having Arsene Wenger as the manager of the Spanish giants Real Madrid. And the talks lasted a very , very long time I must say it started in 2001 and dragged on to 2003, and in the end Arsene Wenger rejected the deal finally.Mind you Real Had players the Galacticos era Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, Roberto Carlos, Raul and Iker Casillas to name a few. But Arsene Wenger rejected the job mainly as Real Madrid had no plans of developing young players they only bought big players. But what would have happened to Arsenal , if he had left? Would Arsenal become a club like Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs lost in the wilderness.Would the EMIRATE STADIUM ever come up? Would these players who played for Arsenal , could have been Arsenal players or not? Now Marc Rogers was also the agent of Thierry Henry, Claude Makelele and others. So Jose Mourinho when you jibe Arsene Wenger just remember that Arsene Wenger rejected that Real Madrid job, which you grabbed with both hands.

The German world cup winner Thomas Muller has said that according to the German paper THE BILD. That Manchester United are willing to spend a hundred million pounds on him as plain crazy. But what I can not understand is when both Bayern Munich and Thomas Muller have clearly said that he is not going to England this summer to join Manchester United, then why go repeatedly after him , it is complete waste of time to me. A few years back when the price of Edinson Cavani was increasing madly while he played at Napoli, he openly said this is crazy no footballer is ever worth so much money , it is madness.
Well Well a small club in called Raqui San Isidro or more often just called Raqui it is a very small club in Spain's fourth tier and it is based in Tenerife . It is a very small club with stadium capacity of just 2,700 and money is indeed very tight and that is understandable. But they are in for a huge windfall of 450,000 Dollars or 320,000 Pounds. Now Pedro Rodriguez once played for Raqui Santa Isidro , as a boy. He then joined F.C.Barcelona, but in the transfer a shrewd clause was added that If ever Pedro Rodriguez was sold by Barcelona they would get a certain percentage of the sale money, and it now works out to 450,000 Dollars or 320,00 Pounds. This is after Barcelona sold Pedro Rodriguez to Chelsea. This money will be very useful for the small struggling club.
Even after Bayern Munich have repeatedly saying that Thomas Muller is not for sale , these Manchester United increased prices come for Thomas Muller. Even when Bayern Munich have clearly said their club policy does not allow them to sell two players to the same club in a year. Bayern Munich had already sold the 31 year old Bastian Schweinsteiger to Manchester United for 14 million pounds. But the latest figures for Thomas Muller 60,sixty million pounds or 85 million Euros to buy him, and a yearly salary of 12, twelve million pounds or one million pounds monthly. Thomas Muller has been laughing away to glory at these Manchester United stories.
The Argentinean defender Nicolas Otamendi , who was playing in Spain for Valencia, was now sold to Manchester City for a huge sum of 32, thirty two million pounds. Now the spending by Manchester City is a huge 99, ninety nine million pounds almost a hundred million pounds you can say. Well you see in one day two players have slipped out of the fingers of Manchester United you see, it was Manchester United who came asking first for Nicolas Otamendi, and had even offered a sum of 35, thirty five million pounds for him. And the Senior Executive Ed Woodward was also in Spain to seal either f the deals . But he did not come empty handed he had a good sun tan in sunny Spain. Both Louis Van Gaal and Ed woodward are very badly hurt men, he better get a very good player from his hat , or he may not show his face.
Now that Manchester United have well and truly lost out on Pedro Rodriguez, wh has joined Chelsea for 23.5 million pounds after add ons. Now who will Manchester United buy? It is reported in THE METRO that Manchester United are looking to sign the Atletico Madrid player Antoine Griezmann . But it would be good to be aware that Diego Simone the Atletico Madrid manager had made it very, very clear at the beginning of the transfer window that there are three players that are clearly not for sale Koke, Diego Godin and Antoine Griezmann. So let them look some where else.
There was doubt about it Chelsea stole Pedro Rodriguez right below the noses of the Manchester United Chief Executive Ed Woodward , who had flown to Spain to get the transfer all done, but nothing worked out Ed Woodward just had a good sun tan and he returned empty handed. Cesc Fabregas phoned Pedro Rodriguez in Spain to sign for Chelsea. But another thing that played a part was Louis Van Gaal harsh treatment to the Spansh footballers at Manchester United, David De Gea and Victor Valdes. Now will Manchester United pay over 41 , forty 0ne million pounds for John Stones a, and steal him from under the Chelsea noses.
After eight years in Sierra A they were relegated from the second tier the third tier for match fixing. The President of the club Antonio Pulvirenti , who also has a few super mals and a airline as well. Now Catania are also fined heavily they must pay a fine of 150,000 Euros or 107,000 pounds. At the same time Mr Antonio Pulvirenti was also fined heavily he has a fine of 300,000 Euros or 213,000 pounds Further he will be banned for a period of five years from all football activities.
Barcelona are a worried club but naturally, after the sale of Pedro Rodriguez to Chelsea. The reason being to famous players Pedro Rodriguez and Xavi Hernandez at Barcelona have left recently, players known to control the ball and also score ample of goals. The reason is Barcelona can not buy new players till 1/1/2016 or sell a player either so I wonder how Barcelona are selling Pedro now? Chelsea will pay a total of 30 Million Euros or 23.5 Million Pounds. It is made up of 21.4 million pounds. as cash. And 3 million Euros or 2.1 million pounds as add ons. Chelsea stole Pedro Rodriguez under the nose of Louis Van Gaal.
It was reported in THE METRO that the former board of Besiktas was having a meeting with Mesut Ozils agent , with a big hope of taking the Geman to Turkey to play for Besiktas. Now Mesut Ozil is having a contract at Arsenal till the year 2018, at Arsenal, I doubt if he will leave for a club not playing regular Champion League matches yearly. The only thing that may tempt Mesut Ozil to play in Turkey , will be that Turkey is the home of his ancestors you see. But Arsene Wenger has flatly denied that Mesut Ozil will leave Arsenal soon.
Now that Manchester United have lost much of their pride for uin the way Pedro Rodriguez joined Chelsea . They are now trying to buy another player instead. They are now looking to buy Sadio Mane the player from Senegal. But Southampton have flatly rejected this offer for fifteen million pounds. Now Manchester United will have to look elsewhere, but mind you there are just two weeks remain open for the transfer window to shut.
Wednesday, August 19, 2015
Now that the transfer of Pedro Rodriguez from Barcelona to Chelsea , is almost a done and dusted matter. But then as he will be making more starts for Chelsea this season, so it is very clear some players will be either sold or given out on loan. Willian the Brazilian wide man is now offered to both Bayern Munich and also to French giants P.S.G. Now Bayer n Munich have no problem over money or players, P.S.G have a major problem in taking in the number of E.U players. So it is doubtful that P.S.G may buy him. And Juan
After manchester United were humiliated with the deal of Pedro Rodriguez from Barcelona, who ditched Manchester United for Chelsea instead. Now Manchester United are looking elsewhere for a speedy winger who can score goals for them, their eyes have fallen on the Southampton winger , who is from Senegal he is Sadio Mane . Now Sadio Mane played his first season for Southampton last year , and he is now credited with the fastest hat trick in the E.P.L . It was scored in just three minutes , can you imagine that. He has broken the previous record for the fastest hat trick in the E.p.L , that was held by Robbie Fowler , who scored four goals against Arsenal in 4.5 minutes.
Now both these footballers are on their way to join Manchester City, both will be jointly worth 88, eighty eight million pounds. The Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne will cost fifty seven million pounds. And there is confusion in the price for Nicolas Otamendi, as Valencia still owe Manchester City for the player Alvaro Negredo , which Manchester City sold to Valencia a few seasons back.At the end it could work out to just 8, eight million pounds.
With only two weeks of the transfer window open , the worst thing Manchester United could do was to let Pedro Rodriguez slip through their fingers. Was it the way Louis Van Gaal treated the Spanish players like david De Gea, Victor Valdes, that made Pedro Sign for Chelsea. Or was it Louis Van Gaal had a second thought about Pedro Rodriguez being good enough for Manchester United. But one thing is crystal clear here Wayne Rooney is not good enough to score the goals, he has not scored a goal as yet. A very bad miss I must say.
The Manchester United executive Ed Woodward flew down to sunny Spain with the big hopes of signing some Spanish footballers or for the matter footballers playing in Spain. Sadly it did not work out that way as all three famous footballers slipped through his hands and he came back empty handed with a Spanish suntan. 1) Pedro Rodriguez is on the verge of joining Chelsea from Barcelona. 2) Nicolas Otamendi is joining Manchester City from Valencia. 3) Ser4gio Ramos has signed a new contract at Real Madrid till the year 2020.
Get it clear missing out on Pedro Rodriguez was not the only player to slip through their fingers, they have missed out on eight very good players I must say. 1)Leighton Baines. Everton. in 2013. 2) Gareth Bale. Tottenham Hotspurs. in 2013. 3)Cesc Fabregas. Barcelona.in 2013. 4)Thiago Alcantara. Barcelona in 2013. 5)Matt Hummels . Borussia Dortmund. in 2014. 6) Toni Kroos. Bayern Munich. In 2014. 7)Nicolas Otamendi. Valencia. 2015. 8) Pedro Rodriguez. Barcelona . In 2015.
In the horror showing by Chelsea against manchester City, in which Manchester City won a convincing game 3-0. Here it was not only John Terry who was at fault but also the right back Branislav Ivanovic, who was given hell by Sergio Aguero and David Silva.. Now Branislav Ivanovic is thirty one years old and according to Chelsea rules these players once they reach thirty years of age, will then get only a years contract at a time, Arsenal have been doing this for years.
People ask why Everton are so stubborn in the sale of John Stones. Now Everton know very well that they will have to extract as much as they can from Chelsea, one reason is John Terry is now old 34 years you see he can no longer run about for ninety minutes.It is a emergency situation at Chelsea now. But Chelsea made bids from 20, twenty million pounds, to 26 twenty six million pounds and now believed to be thirty million pounds. Everton want forty million pounds from Chelsea for John Stones, the reason being John Stones joined Everton from Barnsley , but a cunning clause was put by Barnsley , that said Everton would have to pay fifteen percent of the money they get for selling John Stones . So at forty million pounds Barnsley make a windfall of nine million pounds, that Everton pay them for selling John Stones. They did it for Raheem Sterling as well and got 9 million pounds there.
Pedro Rodriguez the Spanish and Barcelona winger who was playing his club football at Barcelona , from his youth as he was a graduate of the famous La Masia, or THE CASTLE, this is where the young Barcelona players stay and play their football. All this summer he Pedro Rodriguez was going to join Manchester United for 22 million pounds that was his buyout clause. But as Manchester United failed to pay the entire amount at one payment, they wanted to pay 17.8 million pounds and 3.6 million pounds as add ons, the deal fell through. But how did Chelsea come into the picture? Jose Mourinho wanted him and it was Cesc Fabregas who spoke to his former youth player and Barcelona player as well who then convinced him to leave Barcelona for Chelsea instead of Manchester United. Another reason Pedro Rodriguez chose Chelsea over Manchester United , was the way Louis Van Gaal treated the Spanish players like Victor Valdes and David De Gea.
According to THE METRO P.S.G are willing to sell their Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani. And arsenal are keen to buy him , as the price for him is quite reasonable it is just 35, thirty five million pounds. But why would P.S.G want to sell a striker who has scored a total of thirty four goals last season. It now appears that P.S.G are forced to sell a player before they can buy a player, according to U.E.F.A Financial Fair Play Rule you see. And the player they are keen to buy is the Argentinian striker , Sergio Aguero the son in law of Diego Maradona . And Edinson Cavani is not getting along well with the manager Laurent Blanc
It is hard to believe a club like Manchester United are wrangling about the final price for Pedro Rodriguez. Manchester United were told that they would have to pay the full buy out clause of Pedro Rodriguez which stood at 30, thirty million Euros or 22, twenty two million pounds. Manchester United even after getting a huge 44, forty four million pounds for the sale of Angel Di Maria to P.S.G , failed to pay that money. Manchester United only wanted to 17.8 million pounds cash and say 3.6 million pounds as add ons Barcelona wanted it all in one payment. Now Chelsea want him as they have started the new season with two losses and a draw.He will do better at Chelsea. It is now reported in the media that Pedro Rodriquez is flying to England to finalise the deal.

Referee Lee Mason has been demoted as the fourth official for his next match. This has happened because Lee Mason who was the referee in the Arsenal and Crystal Palace match failed to show the Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin a second yellow card followed by a red card. But actually those were not serious or dangerous fouls, bit rough. But nothing has happened to the referee in the Liverpool vs Bournemouth , where the referee gave a Christian Benteke goal to stand when Philippe Coutinho was clearly offside. Will the referee and linesman be demoted here as well or let that win be as it was Liverpool.
Phil Neville the former Manchester United and Everton player has now put up his Cheshire house up for sale , it will be costing 3.6 million pounds. But why is he selling his posh house? The reason is that he is now appointed as the assistant coach of the Spanish club Valencia, and he will be moving there to Valencia. Valencia now have a new owner he is a Billionaire from Singapore Called Peter Lim.
The young eighteen year old Arsenal player Gedion Zelalem, who was originally a German but now pays for the U.S.A. But this young Arsenal super kid Gedion Zelalem has now flown down to Scotland. As he will be most likely signing a year long loan at Glasgow rangers to get experience and within a year or two he could very well be ready for a Arsenal start, he plays as a midfielder.
The Croatian footballer Mateo Kovacic has now gone and joined Real Madrid from Inter Milan. He has now gone and signed a six year contract at the Bernabeu . But Real Madrid had to pay Inter Milan a sum of thirty million Euros. But make no mistake here he is very talented footballer.
It looks more and more likely that Manchester United have long last found a replacement for Roy Keane in the end. Yes it has taken a very long and anxious moments as well watching those who failed that post, it has now taken eleven long years to find that player , and he is a French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin , and he has cost Manchester United a solid twenty five million pounds. But he is doing the job very well, but mind you only two matches have been played so far.
Some facts of Arsenal that may surprise many. 1) Arsene Wenger the manager of Arsenal joined in 1996.But was to have joined Bayern Munich in 1996. 2) The Emirate stadium has a sitting capacity of 60,432 seats. 3) The most matches played by a Arsenal player is by David O, Leary 772 matches played. 4) The top goal scorer for Arsenal is Thierry Henry.With 228 Goals in 337 matches. 5)Arsenal have won 13 E.P.L titles. 6) Arsenal have won 12 F.A Cups. 7) Arsenal have won 2 League cups.8) Arsenal were last relegated in the year 1912/1913.
Arsene Wenger the Arsenal manager is a great admirer of both these Thomas Muller as well as the Polish striker Robert Lewandowski , both of them are playing with the German giants Bayern Munich. Arsene Wenger asked Bayern for the sale of either of them Thomas Muller or Robert Lewandowski . But Bayern Munich made it crystal clear that neither of them were for sale and to look elsewhere for a striker.
The big Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic the big striker that he can very well leave the P.S.G club during this transfer window, it is a bit late in coming but he is so vastly talented clubs will always be wanting him. But the big drawback is that he is thirty three years old , into his twilight years as a footballer you may say. It is reported in the press that Manchester United and Arsenal are very keen to buy him. Manchester United may very well buy him, but Arsene Wenger at Arsenal never does sign a player new who is past thirty years of age, as Arsenal look for a player to serve them for a few years , not just one or two years. But he has other options as well A.C.Milan and the M.L.S in the U.S.A are his choice to make as well. But what is funny here is that a few weeks ago he said he was very happy at P.S.G so why the sudden change may I ask.?
The German club Wolfsburg have now said that Manchester City can now have the Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne for a total price of fifty seven million pounds only. Kevin De Bruyne in the last eighteen months he has played at Wolfsburg he was complete revelation there, even though Jose Mourinho said he was not at all good enough for Chelsea. The price fifty seven million pounds is a huge amount for a youngster , mind you Manchester City had made a last offer for the Belgian at forty seven million pounds only, that is ten million pounds short of Wolfsburg's asking price.
So the truth has finally dawned on the chelsea team, that John Terry at 34 years is indeed old now, and he was withdrawn after 45 minutes . Now Chelsea had plans to buy young twenty year old John Stones from Everto , for a price of twenty million pounds, and it has slowly increased to 26, twenty six million pounds, the latest is that after the Manchester City mauling , Chelsea have made their latest bid of thirty million pounds. But I gfeel Everton could sit till it even reaches forty million pounds. Everton have rejected the thirty million pounds for John Stones, but Jose Mourinho is determined to buy John Stones let us see who will be the winner.
The famous agent Jorge Mendes is now flying to England to settle the transfer of David De Gea from Manchester United to the Spanish giants Real Madrid. David De Gea has not played for Manchester United in the past two matches of the E.P.L. After all only two weeks of the transfer window remain open.
The big mistake at Chelsea s buying big stars ad completely forgetting to develop youngsters for the future. Look at Arsenal they develop youngsters from their academy and keep buying youngsters each year from all over the world. Now this is why Chelsea found it hard against Manchester City John Terry is 34 years old now, lost his pace and the other defender at fault was Branislav Ivanovic who is 31 years old , and he has put on weight during the holiday time, he will take time to lose it now.
The last season Chelsea were run away winners of the E.P.L, but not in 2015/2016 in the first three matches played so far Chelsea have lost two matches and have drawn one match.They lost 3-0 to Manchester City. Now the Chelsea Russian owner Roman Abramovich has sanctioned a huge amount to buy. The buyer that is wanted badly by Chelsea is the French winger Antoine Griezmann, who plays his club football in Spain with Atletico Madrid, the amount sanctioned to buy him is a huge 59.6 million pounds. But just a moment you Chelsea fans need not get to excited here, because Diego Simone the Atletico manager has clearly said thee are three players not for sale at any price at Atletico Madrid, they are Koke, Diego Godin and Antoine Griezmann at any price , they are untouchable players. Just one question, is that money Chelsea money or Roman Abramovich's money.

Marcus Bettenelli the 23 year old goalkeeper at Fulham was wanted by Chelsea, after the sale of Petr Czech to Arsenal. But this young goalkeeper snubbed Chelsea and decided to continue playing for Fulham, as he says to stop playing now and be the third goalkeeper would be silly,. Yes Chelsea are a very big club, but he wants to play as a goalkeeper and not on the bench every week.
It now appears that Evert on are in no mood to sell their young twenty year old defender John Stones to Chelsea this season. Chelsea are now desperate to buy a defender as John Terry had a horrid time against Manchester City, in fact he had to be substituted at the half time, and it was the first time that Jose Mourinho had ever withdrawn John Terry from a game in a total of 177 matches for Chelsea. And the truth here is John Terry is getting old and you can not do anything but get a younger player, after all how long can John Terry go on for? But now as there is only two weeks for the transfer market to close on 1/9/2015 prices of players wanted by clubs will increase , so now John Stones could cost even 40, forty million pounds.
It is now very much official Sergio Ramos has now signed a new deal to stay with the Spanish giants Real Madrid till the year 2020, in other words he will finish his club career at real Madrid as he is already 29 years old. The big loser here was Manchester United and Louis Van Gaal, who wanted to buy him from Real Madrid to strengthen their defence, but the Manchester United club wanted to use Davi De Gea in a the transfer , use the Spanish goalkeeper as a pawn , but that did not materialize at all. Now David De Gea may ask for a transfer now. But one thing is clear Sergio Ramos will be getting two million pounds less as yearly salary , compared to what Manchester United offered him.
You must be wondering how Manchester City could get the Argentinean defender Nicolas Otamendi from Valencia , now the price o the Argentinean Nicolas Otamendi was said to be 35 million pounds, but Manchester City could almost get him free. Now Manchester City sold Valencia their Spanish footballer Alvaro Negredo for a sum of 23.8 million pounds. nd it is not yet fully paid up. Now Manchester City are willing to wipe out this debt by Valencia, and in exchange get Nicolas Otamendi , for almost free. But Manchester City have refused the loan offer made by Valencia to take the French defender Eliaquim Mangala , who was got for 33 million pounds yto join Valencia, he will play for Manchester City this year.
Now it looks more and more likely that the former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes , who is having a tough time at Manchester United , and Louis Van Gaal says he does not agree with his philosophy , so he can no longer play for Manchester United. It is reported that Victor Valdes has got offers from the M.L.S in the U.S.A and he will move on when it is finalized.
It seems indeed very hard to believe that Barcelona of today is so very strong and play very attractive football and the passing is so soothing to the eye, their tika taka you can call it. But record books show us that F.C.Barcelona was an average team in the 1970-1982 , oer a decade, they lost out to Real Sociedad , Atletco Madrid, Athletico Bilbao Atletico Madrid and so on. But they had to wait for the glorious 1990s to be a club to be scared of under the Dutch man as manager Johan Cruyff , and players like Nadal, Koeman, Stoichkov , Romario and Amor and Zubizarreta
It looks more likely that Wayne Rooney is getting all burnt out now fast to. So far in both the two matches played so far he has failed to score a goal even, in the second match and a important match as this could tell the winner in the end. Wayne Rooney had just one touch to kick the ball out, there were no goals from him , no assists from him either , you could very well say he was a spectator on the pitch that day. These are warning bells as they do not have Robin Van Persie to bail Manchester out with a few goals now and then, and mind you the EURO 2016 is coming soon as well.
Dominic Matteo the former Liverpool and Leeds United defender has now declared himself as bankrupt in court. The reason for his bankruptcy , was his gambling on horses and once he gambled 100,000 pounds on a particular horse even. Dominic Matteo when he played for Leeds United they even reached the semifinals of the 2001 champion league, this was under David O'leary , now Leeds are in the lower division in England. The judge wants to know who all he has creditors are and how much he owes each of them. Mind yo this is becoming a epidemic with footballers now.
Now the transfer of the Spanish player Pedro Rodriguez from Barcelona to Manchester United has now stalled, the reason is the amount of money that is to be paid by Manchester United to Barcelona. The price set for the sale of Pedro Rodriguez would be his buyout clause ,that stands at 21.4 MIllion Pounds by Barcelona. But Manchester United are not willing to pay that amount at one payment which Barcelona want. Manchester United are only willing to pay 17.8 Million Pounds , and are also willing to pay Barcelona 3.6 million pounds as add ons.Barcelona want a full one time payment of 21.4 million pounds. Now Barcelona are correct in saying Manchester United got a huge 44 million pounds from selling Angel Di Maria to P.S.G . Barcelona say they are being stingy over a small amount of 3.6 million pounds. And if Manchester United are not careful he will be sold elsewhere.

This is for sure something is not right at Chelsea for sure. Last time Jose Mourinho was not happy with the doctor and got her sacked, and now it is the Chelsea captain John Terry whom he pulled out from the match, mind you he has been pulled out of a match for the first time in 177 matches under Jose Mourinho. But you see John Terry only did not have a good day, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic , Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic also had a night to forget. Chelsea do not look good on both on and of the pitch this was a important match it was called THE OIL CLASSICO. Two clubs owned by two oil Billionaires . Now it shows Chelsea have a single point from two games unthinkable they are sixteenth in the table. Is Petr Cechs transfer to Arsenal responsible for the Chelsea mess I wonder? In this match both Diego Costa and Eden Hazard to were not at their best.
The Spanish giants Real Madrid have promised to pay David De Gea a sum of 12, twelve million pounds as a signing fee. This means he will have to sit out or play out his last season at Manchester United. Real Madrid can then buy him next year as a free agent. Louis Van Gaal is a fool he is asking far to much for a player now on the bench and on the last year of his contract as well, he is asking for 35, thirty five million pounds for him, which Real Madrid will not pay for, because they will get him free next year.
In this new seasons OIL CLASSICO MATCH, played between Chelsea and Manchester City , two clubs owned by oil Billionaires. This match came early in the new season played between Manchester City and Chelsea. Chelsea were the reigning champions but they were given a lessons n football, both Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic were beaten repeatedly , leading to gooals from Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho, the match ended 3-0 in Manchester City's favor . This lead Jose Mourinho to say that the result was a FAKE RESULT. If it is a fake then the F.A and the U.E.F.A should look into it very closely, as usual Jose Mourinho is a very poor looser he will blame everyone but himself. John Terry was withdrawn from the game for the first time in 177 games for Chelsea.
Now the truth has finally dawned on Chelsea and Jose Mourinho that John Terry who is now 33 thirty three years old has now well and truly passed his best years , and no mistake age is catching up with him fast. Jose Mourinho was forced to take out the captain John Terry at the half time break. Now you must know that Jose Mourinho was forced to take out John Terry for the very first time in 177, one hundred and seventy seven matches. These are worrying times as the price of John Stones will now be 35 million pounds , mind you he is only twenty years old.
As the days pass by it looks more and more unlikely that the French striker will ever leave Real Madrid to join Arsenal. It was always the press that made up the stories about Karim Benzema going to join Arsenal for a signing sum of forty five million pounds and also getting a weekly salary of 150,000 pounds. Here the main culprit was THE METRO and its Karim Benzema stories, yes it did make good reading. But right from the start Arsene Wenger never said anything of signing Karim Benzema, or for the matter any striker or any player. Arsene Wenger always plays his cards to his chest, and all negotiations are held in confidence.Very few managers do this.

Ashley Cole the former Arsenal and chelsea left back , who had joined Italian side A.S.Roma from Chelsea . But last year he only played a few games and at thirty four years fewer games will be there to play. So both A.S.Roma and ashley Cole agreed to terminate his contract a year earlier. Edin Dzeko starts along with the evergreen Francesco Totti , who plays his twenty fourth year at A.S.Roma and is thirty eight years old now.
Arsenal are now looking at buying this young French midfielder Adrien Rabiot , who is just twenty years old now and he is playing for the French champions P.S.G. Arsene Wenger was keen to buy him a few years back but he then went and joined P.S.G. He is valued at twenty million pounds not much for his skills.
Manchester United have started the 2015/2016 in a very bad way , they are not at all convincing on the pitch. Even Adnan Januzaj who scored the lucky goal against Aston Villa , was very heavily criticised by Louis Van Gaal. Wayne Rooney has yet to score a goal , last match they won the match with a single own goal scored by Walker. Usually Manchester United are known to kill the match with three goals minimum they have scored eight goals against Arsenal I doubt we will see something like that this season, it will all be narrow wins . Well the Manchester United fans would be upset since in the last twio years Louis Van Gaal has spent 244 million pounds on ten players , here I am counting Pedro Rodriguez as well.244 million pounds is roughly a quarter of a Billion Pounds you see, got the picture, you should be scoring goals at will.
The former Manchester United defender has squarely blamed the bad management of Manchester United or letting the contract of David De Gea to run his contract out. With a good goalkeeper like David De Gea the Manchester United club should have woken up about three years earlier and issued the Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea a fresh contract then and not now when he is a free agent next season. You can be sure he will join Real Madrid for free ten. This is very, very bad management on the part of the Manchester United Board , and now whole of Manchester United fans face anxious times.
Manchester City and Valencia could very well swap players here defenders you see. Valencia want to sell Nicolas Otamendi for 35, thirty five million pounds to Manchester United. But now Manchester City want to buy Nicolas Otamendi , the Argentinean and have offered their very costly super flop Eiquam Mangala , who City paid thirty five million pounds. But I wonder if Valencia will take him free.
Pedro Rodriguez is now thinking long and deep off moving from Barcelona to Manchester United.. The reason being the Dutch manager Louis Van Gaal This article was in THE GUARDIAN. Pedro Rodriguez says he Louis Van gaal has been anti Spanish at Manchester United, his behaviour to Spanish players is clearly seen with the shabby treatment given to the two Spanish goalkeepers Victor Valdes and David De Gea.
Pedro Rodriguez the Spanish winger who plays his club football with Barcelona in Spain, wants to leave barcelona for more playing time . The reason being he is twenty eight years old, but he can not make his way into the Barcelona starting lineup, with players like Lionel Messi , Luis Suarez and Neymar starting. Now these three last year scored a number of 122 goals for Barcelona. And the manager Luis Enrique does not want to change the winning formation at Barcelona. Manchester United were keen to buy Pedro Rodriguez to replace Angel Di Maria , who has joined P.S.G. in France. But the reason the deal has nt been done is Manchester United are only keen on spending 17.7 million pounds on buying and another three plus million pounds as add ons, Barcelona want ready cash for him. Now Manchester City are ready to buy Pedro Rodriguez from Barcelona for a full twenty two million pounds.

The Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva , who is playing his club football in England with Liverpool. Now Liverpool have told him he can leave Liverpool, So Juventus are now keen to buy him, they had got Sami Khedira free from Real Madrid free but he is now injured and they want to buy a backup midfielder as well incase they do fail in their attempt to buy Julian Draxler from Schalke,, as it was reported that Arsenal was keen on Julian Draxler as well.
Tim Sherwood has said that signing foreign players to Aston Villa are far cheaper , far better players then the English footballers. I quite agree with him, the English players are very highly overrated and also give a lot of trouble when they have to sign a new contract as well. Arsene wenger has always looked to France for young talent than England. Raheem Sterling was a example of this English youngsters. The latest foreign player at aston Villa is Adama Traore, for seven million pounds from Barcelona , watch out for him this season will you highly talented and speedy player.
Manchester City too have now entered the Pedro Rodriguez race after all. Manchester United want to buy Pedro Rodriguez for 22, twenty two million pounds, but he is 28 years old not young at all. But they want him to replace the departed Argentinian Angel Di Maria. But Manchester City are keen on the Belgian midfielder Kevin Bruyne , who plays his club football in Germany with Wolfsburg. But Kevin Bruyne has not asked for a transfer as yet, Manchester City were willing to pay 45, forty five million pounds for him. But just in case Manchester City miss out on Kevin bruyne then they will buy Pedro Rodriguez for twenty two million pounds, he will be a cheaper version.
We often ask which club made the biggest investment on a particular player, my answer to that is Barcelona making a big investment on Lionel Messi. No he did not cost any money he came free as boy to THE LA MASIA. But as a boy he had very bad hormone deficiency , and Barcelona took care of all his medical treatments which was indeed very costly, and at the same time it was a very big gamble as well, as what if the money spent on treating Lionel Messi failed? But luckily he did respond to the treatment. Now Barcelona are benefiting the most here . Lionel Messi has now scored a total of 425 goals in all for Barcelona, counting Champion League games. Lionel Messi has also scored 286 goals for Barcelona in Spain alone. He has scored 70, seventy goals in one season for Barcelona, fifty goals he dos yearly . And by the way he has not got a single red card in his majestic career at Barcelona. So for sure Barcelona have made the biggest investment on a player here, mind you he is only 28 years old plenty of goals to be coming from hs boots.
I really do wonder at times why the Queen Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin not been got by a a E.P.L club or even a club in Europe. After all he did score a lot of goals last season, he even singly made the score what it was at the end of the season for Queen Park Ranger. And by the way the club were willing to sell him for fifteen million pounds only, and to add to this he is now getting a reduced salary at Queen Park Rangers, because the club was relegated last season. So exactly why was he not snapped up baffles me.
A little boy Louis Diamond was heartbroken when he learned that his idol Robin Van Persie was sold to the Istanbul club in Turkey called Fenerbahce . The sobbing picture of the little boy went online and it made a big difference to some people. It touched the president of Fenerbahce Mr Aziz Yildirim so much that Fenerbahce acted swiftly and collected 2000 Dollars or 1281 pounds to fly the Diamond family to Istanbul , that is not all the Diamond family will be given seats at the V.V.I.P box to watch Fenerbahce play against Eskisehirspor, but little Louis Diamond will be personally be meeting Robin Van Persie after the match as well. And that is not all the surprises Fenerbache will be also giving the Diamond family a five days holiday at the resort at Antalya. The diamonds were very grateful to the President , players and fans for making this such a unforgettable surprise in their lives what a big heart.
Many of you will be ken to know who are the top earners among the football players in England today. 1) Wayne Rooney. Manchester United . 110 Million Pounds. 2) Yaya Toure. Manchester City. 75. Million Pounds. 3) John Terry. Chelsea. 65. Million Pounds. 4) Bastian Schweinsteiger . Manchester United. 60 Million Dollars. 5) Sergio Aguero. Manchester City. 55. Million Pounds.
The eccentric Italian striker Mario Balotelli has been told to play with the kids of liverpool, and this does not seem to shame him one bit. Liverpool are very keen to get rid of this flop footballer really badly. They Liverpool were willing to send Mario Balotelli on loan back in Italy with Sampdoria or Lazio. And Liverpool were willing to pay these two Italian clubs sixty percent of his salary there. But this footballer wants to stay with Liverpool and collect his loyalty bonus as well.
The spanish defender Sergio Ramos was reported to have agreed terms with Manchester United , he was promised a weekly salary of 200,000 pounds and that added to a yearly sum of 9.8 million pounds. But it is confirmed that Sergio Ramos will sign a new contract at Real Madrid to be at the Bernabeu till 2020. In other words he will finish his club football with Real Madrid. But one thing is clear here he will be getting less as a weekly salary , then what Manchester United had promised to pay, he will get only 8.5 million pounds a year. But he will be at Real madrid who will be playing in the Champion League for sure year after year. That can not be said of Manchester United.
The Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko who had joined Manchester City from Wolfsburg for 27 , twenty seven million pounds . But he was getting les and less playing time at Manchester City , even being a fringe player was less nowadays . So he has now joined A.S Roma on a year long loan, with a posibility of making the deal a permanent one in the end, all depends on how much he will play nd score goals. Steven Jovetic the other Manchester City striker has also left Manchester City to Inter Milan on a loan deal.

Peter SchMEichel the former danish goalkeeper and Manchester goalkeeper of the 1990s has this to say. You can not win anything unless you involve the youngsters who have graduated from their youth academy, you can not name one player for either Manchester United or England for that matter, and so is a big matter of concern. The 1993 youth academy stars played as a team and so won trophies as well. Players like David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Paul scholes, Gary Neville and Phil Neville are examples they just scared the rest of the players. Louis van Gaal has spent 244 million pounds ,for the layers at Manchester United in two years alone , you will understand it better , he has spent a quarter of Billion Pounds, of course I have counted the 22 million Pedro Rodriguez deal, but I have not counted the 35, thirty five million pounds he wants to spend to buy Nicola Otamendi and the amount for Nicola Gaitain is not counted either in the 244 million pounds.That means 12 players but does he know which players will start a match? He does not know it. And mind you David de Gea has said he does not want to play for Manchester united.has he got a goalkeeper as yet of class.
The Dutch footballer Mario Melchiot who played for Chelsea for a few years, nothing great about him , he played for Chelsea before the Russian oil money started rolling into Chelsea. Now Mario Melchiot says Arsenal should do what the Italian club Parma are doing today. Parma is bankrupt mind you Arsenal is not. Now to generate funds to save Parma, they are auctioning their trophies, they had won the Super Cup once and had won two U.E.F.A Cups as well. Mario Melchiot should know Arsenal are not bankrupt as yet. In the seven richest football clubs by Forbes for 2014 which include clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Arsenal as well. Chelsea total wealth was 1.37 Billion Pounds.And Arsenals total wealth was 1.31 Billion Pounds. Nothing here to boast Mario Melchiot . And yes Roman Abramovich has cleared all of Chelsea's debt, he has given Chelsea one Billion Pounds on a interest free loan.And he will spend to enlarge the stamford Bridge stadium, you Chelsea players and fans should be ashamed of yourselves living on charity. Chelsea fans should know Arsenal built their famous EMIRATE STADIUM with money got from selling players like Samir Nasri, Henry, Alexander song, kolo Toure, Gael Glichy , Emmanuel Adebayor .They did not have a sugar Daddy like Chelsea have.
Now Manchester United has entered the race to sign John Stones from Everton.Formerly it was only Chelsea for the buy. Chelsea had offered about thirty million pounds for young John Stones. Manchester United will now offer Everton as um of cash as well as the unwanted Irish defender Jonny Evans as well. They have not mentioned the amount they were willing to pay as part of the deal though.
Paul Scholes the great English and Manchester United player who finally retired from football in the year 2013, says he is now plain bored not playing in football at all. How good was Paul Scholes? Here Sir Alex Ferguson said it all, when Paul Scholes was in his early thirties I can not find a player as good as Paul Scholes anywhere , he eventually asked paul Scholes to come out of retirement and play just one season for Ferguson Please. And Paul Scholes agreed for just one year. Paul Scholes has this to say about the youngsters of today, they are not dedicated like us . Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt , Phil Neville, Gary Neville all changed three buses in the 1990s to reach the ground for training, and changed another three buses to reach home. Today's young footballers are not dedicated they want their big cars and things easy. No wonder England team suffers.
The Spanish striker Roberto Soldado who joined the English club Tottenham Hotspurs for 26, twenty six million pounds. This was just after Tottenham Hotspurs had sold their Welsh winger Gareth Bale , to Real madrid for a world record of 86, eighty six million pounds. Having the money the club sent madly and got average players paying much more then required, and some became surplus at the club. Now Roberto Soldado will finally be leaving the English club for Spain's Villarreal for 12, twelve million pounds. Villarreal are called THE YELLOW SUBMARINES, as they play in a all yellow kit.And the song made famous by THE BEATLES.
Mason Holgate has now joined Everton from Barnsley , it could be just two million pounds. Now who is Mason Holgate, he is a defender and has been got Everton as a replacement in case their young defender John Stones is eventually sold to Chelsea, for say thirty million pounds or more. But Everton have said they have no desire whatsoever to sell young John Stones this year. But Chelsea are keen to buy him now and get training playing with John Terry, whom he will surely replace one day.
According to THE MARCA , the spanish paper that supports Real Madrid greatly has said. That Arsenal will fly down to see this Greek goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez , and personally try to buy him soon . But the Greek club Olympiakos will want arsenal to pay his full buy out clause , which is a small amount of 4.3 million pounds. But the big question here is why the need to buy two goalkeepers in one summer transfer.And the answer is that Arsenal have given their Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny to the Italian club A.S.Roma on Loan , with a possibility of making the loan deal a permanent one even. And to make matters more tense at Arsenal their goalkeeper David Ospina was at first not keen to stay at Arsenal and play second fiddle to Petr Cech. And his stay may not be there next season , so Arsenal want to be safe.
Now the spanish club Valencia , are bound to loose their Argentinean defender Nicolas Otamendi, as he is wanted by both the Manchester Clubs, . Manchester City to has joined the race to get the signature of the Argentinean from Valencia. In fact Both Manchester City and Manchester United , have now come forward to pay his buy out clause for his services, which is a huge 35, thirty five million pounds , which is quite a lot of money.

Manchester United are really desperate to sign Thomas Muller, the German striker from Bayern Munich. Even though the Manchester United had been clearly told that he is not going anywhere. They are trying to tempt Thomas Muller to Join Manchester United , with a weekly salary of 160,000 pounds. Now that means each year Thomas Muller would have got 7.1 million Pounds. By the way Bayern Munich have told Manchester United that Thomas Muller is not for sale at any price.

The Italian giants Juventus , also called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN. Now this club are keen to strengthen their midfield and they are keen on getting the Brazilian midfielder Ramires and the other Chelsea player Juan Cuadrado , now both these two are being used more and more like fringe players only. But Ramires is a more hard working player and more talented as well compared to Juan Cuadrado . But Chelsea are not likely to sell either of them until they can find a suitable substitute to buy.
Louis Van Gaal and Manchester United can now have no excuses whatsoever now, after all they have spent almost a quarter of a Billion pounds on players , two hundred and forty four million pounds , that is counting twenty two million pounds for Pedro Rodriguez. And mind you it was spent in two years.But no recognized goalkeeper brought,no good defender either. 1)Ander Herrera. joined for 29 Million Pounds. 2)Luke Shaw.
