This is getting far to ridiculous for words, a bit far to crazy I must say, He then decided to Now Jose Mourinho has decided that he is no longer interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo, from Real Madrid. So he started looking elsewhere. He then chose the English striker Harry Kane instead, and he also made it clear the first bid would be a 100,a hundred million pounds and could go higher. But the Chairman of Tottenham Hotspurs
The Italian manager of Chelsea had very high hopes of bringing two defenders to Chelsea,. Now that Chelsea are in the Champion League they can attract big players as well. It is believed Antonio Conte was trying very hard to buy two defenders from Juventus , also called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN. It is believed that the Brazilian left back Alex Sandro will be now joining Chelsea for a record fee of 61, sixty one million pounds. But the centre Leonardo Bonucci, who is thirty years now ,has snubbed any move to Chelsea now. He ants to stay at Juventus and win the Champion League with Juventus next year.
Arsenal lead the the race to sign the new wonder Kid from Portugal, who is playing his club football with the Portuguese club F.C Braga. His name is Pedro Neto. By the way Arsenal are not the only club interested in this Wonder Kid ,there are many clubs that showed interest in him and he is seventeen years only. The clubs are big ones like Arsenal, Barcelona, Manchester United and Monaco as well all showed ken interest in him. in fact Arsenal even made their first bid for Pedro Neto, it was 13.5 million pounds. But F.C Braga have already rejected that bid ,the club is still holding out to the buy out clause in his latest contract he had signed, it s a small amount and it is 17.5 million pounds.. Jose Mourinho who is from Portugal is very keen to buy him.

We must be serious here as Chelsea are really going to find it hard to replace the departing Diego Costa. Even if they do spend 100, a hundred million pounds to buy the Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton. You must not forget that in the past three years that Diego Costa was at Chelsea he was the top scorer for Chelsea in those three years. He was a player who was always at the right spot to score those many goals , and believe me some of those goals were very , very crucial goals too. I do agree that in England the Golden boot winner usually wins the title after scoring just 26 or 28 goals in a season, they seldom score over thirty goals in a season. Even Franck Lampard said the same thing.
Chelsea are now forced to sell the Serb midfielder Nemanja Matic, to Manchester United as he is now found to be surplus at the club. But how did he suddenly become surplus at the club you may be asking. Now Chelsea have decided to make two signings , one is a defender in Alex Sandro,for a record 61, sixty one million pounds , now as this deal is almost done finally , now Alex Sandro becomes the costliest defender ever, he now has broken the previous record of 50, fifty million pounds. Which P.S.G had paid Chelsea for David Luiz. Nemanja Matic will now make way for the midfielder from Monaco . he is Tie moue Bakayoko, and he is a player similar to Ngolo Kante. Now Tiemoue Bakayoko will cost Chelsea a total of 35.5 million pounds, and he is a complete midfielder as well.
Arsenal are facing a problem with the new laws concerning the wages of the club players. The new rule states that if the wages of the footballers at a club reaches over seven million pounds to the previous year, then they have no alternative but to sell players here. Now if both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil agree to a new contract with their mad demand of each getting a weekly salary of 300,000, three hundred thousand pounds, the club wages would easily cross the seven million pounds. Now Alex Oxlade chamberlain has a year left on his contract, so it now looks more and more likely that the 23 year old Alex Oxlade Chamberlain would be forcefully sold. Now Liverpool are willing to pay 30, thirty million pounds for him.
Let us be honest here there are a very much a shortage of real strikers, this summer transfer window, usually there are more strikers available during the summer transfer window then in January. But now Borussia Dortmund have decided to sell their Gabon striker Pierre Erik Aubameyang, the price is .70, million Euros or 62 , sixty two million. Now what is hard to believe Liverpool, Arsenal and now Real Madrid have not shown the slightest interest in buying him. Even though Olivier Giroud may leave for Arsenal. And Cristiano Ronaldo leave Real Madrid after his fraud charges in Spain. Lyon are asking 56, fifty six million pounds for Alexander Lacazette. Arsenal should pay a little more and buy this footballer , who scored 46 goals in 46 games.
The former Ajax , Barcelona and Holland defender Franck De Boer , has been chosen by Crystal Palace as their new manager, the big question now is will he keep Crystal Palace up next year? He is a football addict according to his twin brother Ronald De Boer. He as the manager of his childhood club Ajax , and won trophies there as well. He was chosen as the manager of the Milan cub Inter Milan, sadly he was sacked after just 85, eighty five days. But during those eighty five days Franck De Boer learned Italian, and gave a conference in Italia as well. I wonder how many English managers going to Spain know Spanish, or bothered to learn the language. He used to be at the San Siro, at 7.30 A.m. and leave at 7.30 P.M.. He will now speak to his two players who played with him at Barcelona , both Ronald Koeman the football in England. as well as Pep Guardiola , about the football in England. I have no doubt he will do well.
The French club Monaco are not at all in a hurry to sell their nineteen year old footballer, they have made it crystal clear here that 13, one hundred and thirty million Euros will not do. It will have to be much more And they have Cleary said now that they will not be selling Kylian Mbappe, to either P.S.G or any other French club. So far only Real Madrid have really shown interest to buy him. The club Monaco have a desire to keep him for at least another year r so. So they have increased his weekly salary from 18, thousand Euros to a massive 163, 000one hundred and sixty three thousand Euros. In other words they have increased his salary by nine hundred percent ,MADNESS I must say. Let me ask a question will Kylian Mbappe , ever score over 40, forty goals in a season for eight consecutive seasons?
In the year 2009, the Arab oil Billionaire Sheikh Mansour , who is the owner of Manchester City in England. He had come forward to buy the young Brazilian Kaka, now Kaka had just won the Ballon D'Or. lease note since then each year it has been Cristiano Ronaldo, or Lionel Messi who have on the Ballon 'D Or. Manchester City were willing to buy Kaka for 91, ninety one million pounds then. That would have helped A.C. Milan clear their debts . But Kaka refused to agree to the deal, the next day over three thousand fans were at his house to thank him for staying on. He stood on the balcony, showing his jersey.. But a few months late he was sold to Real Madrid for a huge sum 56, fifty six million pounds. But he did not do well at Real Madrid , and was sold back to A.C. Milan . He is now in the M.L.S. with Orlando. But what was his weekly salary at Manchester City then, it was a huge 500,000, five hundred thousand pounds. To make it clear today the highest paid footballer is Cristiano Ronaldo with a weekly salary of 365,000, three hundred and sixty five thousand pound's a week. The weekly salary was just mind blowing in 2009.
The Everton manager Ronald Koeman has told Ross Barkley that if he does continue to refuse to sign a new contract at Everton he would be sold this transfer window. Now Ronald Koeman has gone and brought the young Ajax captain Daley Klassen,to replace him. Now this has made club's keen to buy him from Everton, Tottenham Hotspur were interested in him , but they have now dropped the idea as he is a player similar to Dele Ali. So Manchester United , and Arsenal are keen to buy him. But the price fixed by Everton is far to high. They want 50, fifty million pounds for him, far to much I must say. After all the price is sure to fall sharply, as he will be a free agent next year.

According to THE METRO, the Manchester United manger Jose Mourinho has told the club head that they should go right ahead and spend a sum of 100, a hundred millions pounds on this particular striker only, even if it going to be more than that, over a hundred million pounds the money should be spent . By the way the striker is neither Cristiano Ronaldo,, Gareth Bale or for the matter not even Kylian Mbappe. The striker is English and from Tottenham Hotspurs, he is Harry Kane. Now the big problem is that Tottenham Hotspur made it very clear that they are not selling any player. The chairman of the club David Levi , has said as Tottenham Hotspurs are now going to build a new stadium , there is money to spend and no player will be sold , like what Arsenal had to do to pay for their new stadium THE EMIRATES. But here time will tell who will be sold or not.
It now looks clear that the Arsene Winger's interest in the French teenager Kylian Mbappe, mainly as the price was far to much. Arsene Wenger is now trying to buy a young talented striker , who will cost a fraction of that huge amount. Now the striker he wants to buy now is the French striker Anthony Martial, from M Manchester Untied, and he wants him for 40, forty million pounds only. But the big problem is that it is a well known fact that Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho are certainly not the best of friends, either on the pitch or off it. Recently Jose Mourinho had phoned Arsene Wenger to taunt him on signing a new two year contract at Arsenal. Arsene Wenger thought it was Thierry Henry,but Jose Mourinho introduced himself and then started taunting Arsene Wenger ,by saying another two years of being a Specialist on failure. Arsene Wenger then retaliated by saying ( I have never been sacked by a club, but you got sacked twice by the same club.
Real Madrid have made it very clear to the teenager from Monaco Kylian Mbappe, that he will certainly get a starting place at Real Madrid, next season. So in other words who will be sacrificed ? Will it be Cristiano Ronaldo, with his tax fraud , Gareth Bale or is it Kareem Benzema , who will be forced out of Real Madrid. Now both Manchester United and the French champions P.S.G want Gareth Bale. But P.S.G are also eager to sign the Argentinean Sergio Aguero from Manchester City . Manchester City had put a price of 60, sixty million pounds for Sergio Aguero. But this will depend on Manchester City buying Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal. And he has a year still on his contract.
The Argentinean footballer , who has ben at Barcelona since he was thirteen years old, is thirty years old on 24/6.2017. His best goal was against Getafe in a Copa Del Rey match in 2007. In the match he took the ball from the half line a dribbled past two defenders as well and the goalkeeper as well. He has now scored a total of five hundred and seven goals. He scored his first hat trick in the year 2007, in a 3-3 draw with Real Madrid. He has scored goals in sixteen different countries . He has scored in twenty three different stadiums. His best year was 2012 , in that year he scored a total of 91, ninety one goals a world record still. His break up is a goal in every 102 minutes.
The Spanish striker Alvaro Morato, has refused to listen to his manager Zine dine Zidane, about his desire to move to England and play for Manchester United, under Jose Mourinho. The striker ust can not get into the main Real Madrid starting line up. But with very big and costly stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Kareem Benzema all starting ahead of him He went even to Italy and played for Juventus, also called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN. For two years.. But then Real Madrid used the buy back clause to get him back. But the question I ask is if there was no starting place for Alvaro Morato at Real Madrid, why be in such a hurry to buy him, mind you he did very well in Italy. Now as Manchester United have not renewed Zlatan Ibrahimović's contract he will get a starting place now.
Manchester City have now decided that they want to cash on with the Argentinean striker Sergio Aguero, who by the way is the son in law of the great Argentinean footballer Diego Maradona. Manchester City have now fixed the selling price of their striker Sergio Aguero , at 60, sixty million pounds. But there is a slight problem here for the Manchester City fans , this will greatly depend on what success Manchester City, will have in persuading the Chilean footballer Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal in the summer. You must remember that Alexis Sanchez has one long year still remaining on his contract. And Arsenal are in no big hurry to sell their big star to a rival club.
Chelsea have now decided to sell their well forgotten striker on the cheap, you could very well say it is a distress sale. As Antonio Conte has no plans to use him in the new season. The sadly forgotten striker is none other then Loic Remy and he is from France. He joined Chelsea in the year 2014, for a high price as he was then dubbed THE NEW HENRY. He is getting a weekly salary of 80,000, eighty thousand pounds, and he can not get a place on the Chelsea bench. last year he was on loan with Crystal Palace, there also he failed to score a single goal, but yes he was also injured badly. Now he has very few clubs to choose from ,he must also drastically cut his weekly salary, as Marseille want him.. There is every chance that Kylian Mbappe could end up the same way.
Arsenal are known to spot young talent, and they have now on the verge of signing the young Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru, who is just nineteen years of age . He will be joining Arsenal from the Belgian club K.A.S Eupen, the price is very minor indeed it was 6.8 million pounds. But what has excited the Arsenal board is that he has already got his work permit. If you remember the Arsenal Japanese youngster who is also a striker failed to get a work permit for the second year in a row, so the youngster will play another year in Germany with Stuttgart on loan. This is the big difference between Arsenal and the big clubs. While Monaco are asking a sum of 130 , one hundred and thirty million pounds for another nineteen year old boy, who has scored only fifteen goals for Monaco last season. Now Henry Onyekuru asked fellow Nigerian Alex Iwobi about the Arsenal club and manger and players as well. And Alex Iwobi had only good things to say about Arsenal. By the way Alex Iwobi is the nephew of the former Nigerian footballer Ajay Okocha.
The French striker Olivier Giroud has now gone and written his name into the record books in the 2016/2017 season. now while playing for Arsenal he has now become the second footballer ever to play in England and also to score five goals in five games for Arsenal. By the way the first footballer also to reach this magical figures was also a Arsenal player. The player was the long legged striker from Togo, Emmanuel Edaboyour. Who first scored five goals in five games.

Each club had their loyal servant to their club, like old ones Ryan Griggs and Paolo Maldini. But this year let us see who is the loyal footballer at some clubs. 1) Theo Walcott. Eleven years at Arsenal. 2) Wayne Rooney. Thirteen years at Manchester United. 3) John Terry. Eighteen years at Chelsea. But the most loyal footballer has been the Italian striker Francesco Totti , who is 40, forty years now and played 25, twenty five years for A.S. Roma.
Wayne Rooney the Manchester United has now gone and set a new record for scoring the most away goals in the E$.P.P.L. This is the list of footballers to score most away goals. 1 ) Wayne Rooney. 88. Goals. 2) Alan Shearer. 87. Goals. 3 Frank Lampard . 85. Goals. 4) Andy Cole. 83. Goals. 5) Michael Owen. 70. Goals.
The English and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, who by the way holds the record for the most goals for both and England, is finding a new club at the age of thirty one hard to find. The main reason is that he is still greedy . He is sill demanding a huge weekly salary of 300,000 , three hundred thousand pounds. But what he must realize here is that age has caught up with him and he is on the wrong side of thirty, thirty one to be correct. And he has to score a hat trick in each match to justify that huge yearly salary. But in the entire season of 2016/2017 , he had scored just five goals in all, he had not even reached double figures I must say. No wonder Everton backed out of any deal they had in mind , as he is milking the club royally .
Arsenal have been admirers of Alexander Lacazette or a while now, last year they even made a bid for him but then the Lyon president rejected the bid of 29, twenty nine million pounds for the French striker. But now Lyon have decided to sell their striker and Arsenal , are very serious about it ad several meetings have been held, with more planned next week. It looks like personal terms have been agreed by Arsenal and the player but the price is not yet finalised , THE METRO , says it could be between 44, forty four million pounds to 50, fifty million pounds, so now that has to ironed out next week. Now a few things are clear Arsenal are no longer interested in buying the Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe for 130, one hundred and thirty million pounds. Buying a teenager who is only nineteen years and has scored only fifteen goals in a season is just madness and a very big gamble. At this rubbish I think retired footballers should come out of retirement I am sure they will score more then fifteen goals in a season, plain criminal waste of club money. It is also possible Olivier Giroud who is thirty years join up with Lyon for 20, twenty million pounds.
This has come like a rocket from the blue. now Chelsea have decided that they will have to sell the Serb midfielder Nemanja Matic, to Manchester United, the sum is a huge 40, forty million pounds. But this definitely a big gamble as last year both Nemanja Matic and Ngolo Kante did a very good work together to win the E.P.L last year. But why was the Serb sold in a hurry? The Serb Nemanja Matic is now being sold to Manchester United for forty million pounds, as Antonio Conte wanted to hold on to the playmaker Cesc Fabregas , who has scored more goals and was a good playmaker.
Antonio Conte and Chelsea are very eager to get their transfer started for the summer. They are going to Antonio Conte old club Juventus. also fondly called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN. And the two players they want are the Brazilian Alex Sandrro , for 55, fifty five million pounds. And the other player he wants is the Italian Leonardo Bonucci.. For45, Forty five million pounds,. And both are very good defenders.
Tottenham Hotspurs are now frustrating the Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, as Manchester City have released a lot of players and want to buy seven players . They had their eyes on Kyle Walker, but now the Tottenham Hotspur club are asking a total sum of 50, fifty million pounds for him, which is very steep indeed. But when you consider that it is Manchester City who want a player, with the owners Arab oil money, then the price is inflated Like in the case of Virgil Van Digik at Southampton. And another point out here is if Manchester City can pay 47 , forty seven million pounds for John Stones, and also 49, forty nine million pounds for Raheem Sterling , who are average players. then be ready to pay 50, fifty million pounds for good players.
The American main shareholder of Arsenal Mr Sam kroneke , has now made a person phone call to the young Spaniard Hector Bellerin, who s the right back for Arsenal. And he made it very clear to Hector Bellerin, that he would not be allowing Hector Bellerin to leave Arsenal on any condition. The main reason being that the Spaniard Hector Bellerin has signed a contract to be at Arsenal for a few more years . The year to be exact is 2023. It was also reported in THE METRO, that F.C.Barcelona were keen to buy Hector Bellerin to replace the former right back Dani Alves.And Barcelona were willing to use the Brazilian footballer Rafinha aa a pawn in the Hector Bellerin transfer deal.
Arsenal could easily fall into the trap of breaching the wage spending bill, mainly due to Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil. The rule says a club can increase its spending yearly on wages by just seven million pounds. But what the Arsenal fans who are demanding that Arsenal break the bank to keep Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, should know that both are demanding a weekly salary of 300,00 pounds, and Alexis Sanchez asked a weekly salary of 420,000 pounds a week from Bayern Munich Now with each of these two contract rebels asking makes the amount yearly 15, fifteen million pounds more than double what the law clearly states. Then Arsenal will be forced to sell a lot of players to generate the money so needed. This will weaken the team greatly.
Now Real Madrid are the favourites to sign the French striker Kylian Mbappe from Monaco. Now what exactly was the promise that Zinedine Zidane make to Kylian Mbappe? Real Madrid have already got three forwards and all good ones at the club, so one thing as certain , in this position there was no chance of the young French footballer making into the main team. It was clear here that one of the three players would have to be sold this summer to make way for Kylian Mbappe , and the one going to be sold is the Welsh man Gareth Bale. And who will be buying him , It will only be Manchester United, and the price Real Madrid want is a 100, a hundred million pounds for him, please note he had a injury affected season last year, a little too much money I would say. But the hundred million pounds will help in paying for the youngster. Previously Real Madrid were planning to generate the money by selling James Rodriguez for over sixty million pounds. The other promise made to the youngster after a secret meeting was that Zinedine Zidane would see to it that he would be a super star at Real Madrid, like Cristiano Ronaldo. But I doubt it , as he has scored only fifteen goals in one season will he core over 30 , thirty goals in one season like Lionel Messi for seven years. But P.S.G are willing to pay 135, one hundred and thirty five million Euros and they will also give a player in Hatem Ben Arfa. But paying over fifty million pounds for a teenager , who has scored only fifteen goals in a season is being stupid and taking a big gamble, many youngsters failed , like Loic Remy , who was once touted as the next Thierry Henry. Real Madrid will also agree to sign the teenager and give him back on loan to Monaco for the next year.

Real Madrid is the desired club which the young French striker Kylian Mbappe will want to join. But it will not be so easy as it sounds. The reason is that Real Madrid will have to sell a player soon and for a lot of money , and soon as well as he transfer market will open on 1/7/2017. And the person to be sold is the Colombian footballer James Rodriguez, for 65, sixty five million pounds.
It always makes us interested o find out the value of footballers sold for a record amount over the years, how much more could they cost. Here I am taking only the top three costliest footballers of all time. 1) Gareth Bale joined Real Madrid, from Tottenham Hotspurs for 85, eighty five million pounds, today that figure is 90.78.Million Pounds. 2) Cristiano Ronaldo, joined Real Madrid from Manchester United, for 80, eighty million pounds. Today the figure would be 98.4 Million Pounds. 3) Paul Pogba joined Manchester United from Juventus for a world record of 89 , eighty nine million pounds, but it has risen here slightly to 90.18. Million pounds. Or to put it in another way the amount is six times more then what Barcelona paid for the famous Diego Maradona ,. So how crazy have the football world become?
CHELSEA DISCARDED PLAYERS VALUED AT TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY FOUR MILLION POUNDS , BUT THEY DID WELLGOR OTHER CLUBS.
Chelsea have a habit of buying players and then discarding them later on . But what is surprising here is that these discarded players all have done well with other clubs in other countries. The main players that come to mind are .Kevin De Buyrne , Romalu Lukaku, Felipe Luis, David Luis, Radamel Falcao and a great deal of other players I must sadly say. But these players all came at a huge sum of money 284, two hundred and eighty four million pounds. I often wonder what was the quality of the scouts used by Chelsea, it does raise questions in plenty here.
The young eighteen year old French striker Kylian Mbappe ,who has been very good for Monaco last year, so clubs have come knocking at the door now, so where will he be playing now? He has told the Monaco board very clearly that he will only join one club ,to play football and that is Spanish giants Real Madrid. But other clubs are also showing interest in the youngster. It is reported in THE METRO , that the French club P. S. G. are willing to pay a sum of 130 , one hundred and thirty million Euros for him. And it is also reported that in London Arsenal are getting ready to make a higher bid then what P.S.G have put forward to Monaco. But I would like to warn people not to get excited as many youngsters were a one season wonder and then fizzled out. Take the case of Loic Remy the French footballer who played for Chelsea , he was touted as the next Thierry Henry, but where is he now?
Juventus could very easily loose the young Italian footballer Moise Kean, whose parents are from the Ivory Coast originally . The reason Juventus could loose the young talented footballer is not because of a increase in his weekly salary ,or for the matter better terms. The reason is a strange one, . The father was promised a tractor as part of the agreement, but he club lawyers sent a letter recently stating that the tractor or agriculture instruments were rejected to be given to him, So it could be a good chance for Arsenal to pick him up from Juventus and give him a chance in football.
The Brazilian footballer Rafinha is strongly considering a move to Arsenal from Barcelona. The reason he wants to leave Barcelona for Arsenal is that he wants to cast a impression for the Spanish team for the world cup 2018. But as he played only sixteen games for Barcelona last year, he wants a Arsenal move. But there is a big problem now , as Barcelona are trying very hard to buy the young Spaniard Hector Bellerin from Arsenal, as Barcelona have failed to find a good right back after the departure of Dani Alves. Now Barcelona are planning to use the young Brazilian Rafinha as a pawn in the Hector Bellerin transfer deal.
Peter Schmichel called THE GREAT DANE , who is from Denmark, during his time as the goalkeeper of Manchester United. Now his son Kasper Schmichel , who is the goalkeeper at Leicester City, during the 2015/206 season, when they won the E.P.L that year. Peter Schmichel has said , he is speaking as a neutral, that if David De Gea finally does leave for Real Madrid in Spain, then Manchester United should buy Kasper Schmichel to fill the place. But the problem here is that Leicester City are asking fifty million pounds, for a thirty year old goalkeeper , clearly to old and to costly.
Every body new that the text message sent by Antonio Conte telling Diego Costa that he no longer fits into the Chelsea plan for the new year. It looks like a simple message after all. But Chelsea will pay very dearly for it. As Chelsea were planning of asking a huge price for Diego Costa, it was said to be a 100, a hundred million Euros, or 88 , eighty eight million pounds. But because of this hasty text message the price for the Spanish striker Diego Costa has now fallen to 52, fifty two million pounds. So the price fell by a huge 36, thirty six million pounds, as it was a unwanted player being sold , he would have to be sold at a distress sale anyway. The former French footballer Eric Cantona , told Antonio Conte not to manage a club with his fingers. Diego Costa will be joining Atletico Madrid soon.
The famous English club Liverpool which won the English football title most times nineteen times while Manchester United have won it twenty times. But Liverpool have failed to win the E.P.L title in 27, twenty seven long years I must say, and they have been in the wilderness all these years. But the club have not been wasting their money on managers and players as well. The Liverpool club have spent 90 million pounds on buying players , you could well say almost a Billion Pounds. But I am very proud of the Liverpool fans , as they are very loyal to their club , you do not se them demanding that their managers should resign and what not , like the stupid Arsenal fans. I personally feel the glory days are bound to return to Liverpool soon. So Liverpool spent 910 , nine hundred and ten million pounds on players., and must have brought nearly 200 , two hundred players some succeeded and others were big flops as well like Andy Carrol and Cristian Benteke.
The Uruguayan striker who played for Ajax, Liverpool and Barcelona as well. He returned to Montevideo , and his very first club where he first kicked a ball. It was a emotional time for the famous strikers tears rolled freely. The club is called Nacinol. The new turf pitch is called the LUIS ALBERT SUAREZ pitch. His wife , daughter and son were all there to see where Luis Suarez first kicked the ball thirteen long years ago.
The Italian giants Juventus also called THE OLD LADY OF TURIN.Are now willing to sell their left back to Chelsea. Alex Sandro, who is a Brazilian footballer with great skill ,speed and strength as well, and the famous world cup winner Roberto Carlos, has been speaking highly about him, and also says he feels Alex Sandro is the only left back who can be his successor as the best left back in the world. But now such a good player will not come cheap in any way. Juventus had rejected two bids made by Chelsea , and both were flatly rejected. The transfer fee which is now set at 55, fifty five million pounds is a new record for a defender. The previous record for a defender was 50, fifty million pounds, when P.S.G paid Chelsea for David Luiz. But now Juventus have found a replacement for Alex Sandro, he is a another Brazilian left back called Delbert Henrique, and he plays for Nice in France. Juventus can buy him for 13, thirteen million pounds, a bargain I must say. A/ Now you may wonder why Chelsea are willing to pay A.S.Roma 55, fifty five million pounds for Alex Sandro? The reason is simple Chelsea in the new season are playing in the Champion League, so Antonio Conte wants a defender to challenge Marco Alonso.

As Liverpool are on the verge of signing the Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah, from the Italian club A.S.Roma. Now as Mohamed Salah was a former Chelsea player in the year 2014, but he was a failure there but he was then sold to A.S. Roma. But it is now clear that Chelsea had put a clause in the transfer deal, which clearly says that if A.S.Roma do sell Mohamed Salah, to any club then Chelsea should be paid a sum of 1, ten percent on the sale amount. The amount is 39, thirty nine million pounds, so Chelsea will collect 2.7 million pounds .
Pep Guardiola is a manager known to completely keep players out of the team where ever he did manage. 1) At Barcelona it was Pep Guardiola who put a end to Ronaldinho and had him sold to A.C.Milan. His reason was Lionel Messi had arrived. 2) He was also to be responsible for Yaya Toure , to be sold to Manchester City. 3) Zlatan Ibrahimović was also sold to A.C.Milan. 4) At Manchester City he kept out Joe Hart , and sent him on loan to Torino. He brought Claudio Bravo from Barcelona to Manchester City for 17, million pounds, he was a flop.
Liverpool are on the verge of signing the Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah ,from A.S.Roma in Italy. The price is said to be roughly 39, thirty nine million pounds. This is a new record for a any Liverpool player, the old record was set in the year 2011 , when Liverpool went a spent a then new record of 35, thirty five million pounds for Andy Carrol , from Newcastle United. Even though he was not a big hit with the club, he was sold to Newcastle United ,and then to West Ham United. But the truth here is that this was not the first time Liverpool were ever interested in the Egyptian Mohamed Sala. Back in the year 2014, Liverpool were very keen to buy him, but the reason for the transfer to be failure was that Liverpool , then were not willing to spend more than 10, ten million pounds on him. Chelsea then entered the picture by buying Mohamed Salah for just 11, Eleven million pounds. But he turned out to be a flop at Chelsea. Now Liverpool are paying a huge sum of twenty nine million pounds for the same player, they failed to buy for eleven million pounds.
The recently elected president of Real Madrid Mr Florentino Perez ,has made it very clear the Cristiano Ronaldo is not being sold even for 350, three hundred and fifty million pounds. And he made it also clear that there have been o bids made from any clubs for either Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morato, who is spending his honey moon free from football worries, with his new wife. But one thing was clear here the Real Madrid fans were very cool over the whole episode, they say they have experienced it twice before,. They say Cristiano Ronaldo has done this before o get new increased weekly salary. The entire reason for this drama was that till today Cristiano Ronaldo was the costliest footballer ever, but Lionel Messi will soon be over taking him. So Ronaldo wants a better contract, as it stands today Cristiano Ronaldo is getting a weekly salary of 365,00 three hundred and sixty five thousand pounds a week. And has a buy out clause of 175 million pounds. But Lionel Messi will sign his new contract in June only.But his weekly salary should cross 400,000 pounds a week. Cristiano Ronaldo just wants to be known as the costliest footballer ever.
Just by winning a silverware will not do at all , as you have to stay in the E.P.L year after year. You can ask these fans from these clubs ,and they will tell you the truth. 1) Aston Villa won seven old English titles, more than Chelsea even, they also won seven F.A Cups. They are in the second tier now. 2) Nottingham Forest. won two Champion League cups in a row, this year they narrowly survived from falling into the third tier. 3? Leeds United are in the wilderness for years after winning the title in 19901. 4) Blackburn Rovers won the E.P.L in 1994/1995, under Alan Shearer, today they are playing in the third tier in England.
Bayern Munich have sternly warned Manchester United and Chelsea who are both looking for good strikers to replace theirs, Chelsea are looking to replace Diego Costa, and Manchester United want to replace the aging Zlatan Ibrahimović. But Bayern have made it crystal clear that Robert Lewdownski is not for sale at any price. Secondly he has signed a new long contract till the year 2021. And if these clubs do not listen, they will then have to face action from F.I.F.A.
Now after Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi , Jose Mourinho it is the turn of the Argentinean Angel Di Maria to be found guilty of tax evasion , during his years as a Real Madrid player or four years. He also put his earnings from IMAGE Rights in a company in Panama. While Cristiano Ronaldo put it in the Virgin Islands ,in the British Isles. While the amount for Angel Di Maria is a small amount just 1.14 million pounds, he has been told to pay a fine of 1.75 million pounds. He has to do it even though he plays in France with P.S.G. But what must be brought to the notice here is that Jose Mourinho, Angel Di Maria and Cristiano Ronaldo all have the same agent Jorge Mendes , known as the super agent, but now it could change . Now Angel Di Maria has been given a year long suspended jail sentence as it is his first offence.
The Spanish giants F.C.Barcelona are going to sign a new midfielder from the Brazilian club Santos, he will sign for Barcelona in July , but only join in January 2018. He is called Lucas Lima , he will join Barcelona on a free transfer. He s also the former boy friend of Neymar's sister Rafaela. And it was Neymar who personally told Barcelona to sign him up, so it looks like both Neymar and Lucas Lima are still on good terms, and that is very nice to see. By the way Lucas Lima is 26, twenty six years old. After all it is rumoured that Barcelona are selling two midfielders Arda Turan and Andre Gomes.
It is reported in The METRO that Spanish giants F.C.Barcelona have already made contact with the young French footballer Osmana Dembale . In fact according to The BILD , Barcelona have already agreed to personal terms with the footballer. After all who in their right mind will reject an offer from Barcelona. But Barcelona have not yet agreed to a fee as yet for the footballer, as Borussia Dortmund are asking a huge fee of 79, seventy nine million pounds for him. But the question is do Barcelona need him now, with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar all at Barcelona. Sure footballers from Barcelona will have to be sold , both Andre Gomes and Arda Turan are for sale , each are costing thirty million pounds each, and in fact Jose Mourinho has sent super agent Jorge Mendes to Barcelona to buy Andre Gomes.

Alexis Sanchez is getting to big for his boots and getting greedier by the day we know that as a child in Chile, he used to wash cars and do stunts for money. Yes he does want to make money He is wanting to join Manchester City alone and get a weekly salary of 300,000, three hundred thousand pounds. But this footballer demanded a weekly salary of 420,000 , four hundred and twenty thousand pounds, the cheek of him to even ask for it . He very well knew Arsenal do not want to sell him to a club in England, so if he asks this crazy amount from Bayern Munich, the German giants would never pay any one this crazy amount So he can easily join Manchester City. But Arsenal should demand exchanging Alexis Sanchez with Sergio Aguero .
Some years ago Manchester City brought a French footballer from F.C.Porto , for a very huge sum of 42, forty two million pounds, actually the price was 32,thirty two million pounds. plus another ten million pounds, so the final amount came to 42, forty two million pounds. Almost you could say half a billion pounds. Now with this type of price which is inflated , the weekly salary also could be high like 140,000, one hundred and forty thousand pounds. But what I found to be really crazy here was he was not even on the bench , for Manchester City, I often wonder what did the Manchester City scouts see in him? To spend this huge amount on him. Now it appears that he has flown to France to join Lyon for a very small amount of 18, eighteen million pounds.
I the mid ninety's Brazil produced a footballer from Flamingo youth Academy , his name was Adriano also called THE EMPERROR. He was vas a huge talent no doubt, but sadly things went very badly for him. He even played for Brazil at the world cup as well, so he was talented to play for the country in a world cup along with Ronaldo, Rivaldo, and Ronaldinho . so HE HAD TO BE REALLY GOOD. But Adriano grew up in the worst area of Brazil, with crime , and murder and gang lords all around. To escape from this horrible atmosphere he took up football in a very big way, and so escaped the evil around him. He joined the Italian Giants Inter Milan, and really gave a good account himself there scoring sacks of goals at Milan, it was also here that he was called THE EMPERROR, he was cult figure. But sadly how the world can go topsy turvy. His father died suddenly and his long time girlfriend ditched him.. Both these incidents that affected him one after the other, made him go into depression, and he started drinking heavily, and he put on to much weight. But he was a heavy footballer from the start like the Brazilian footballer Ronaldo. He became to fat and lost the pace and strength he once ad ,his football days were numbered as he continued to drink heavily. A sad case of real talent sadly wasted away.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola , wanted to make a clear out of some players at Manchester City, who are drawing huge weekly salaries. But he has no luck with selling these players so far, and they have huge weekly salaries as well. 1) Joe Hart is on a weekly salary of 130,000 , one hundred and thirty thousand pounds. 2) Samir Nasir is on a weekly salary of 160,000, one hundred and sixty thousand pounds. 3) Wilfred Bonney ,is on a weekly salary of 130,000, one hundred and thirty thousand pounds. Guardiola has been told to see that he sells these players as well.
Nobody saw this coming , now after some delay Chelsea are very much on the verge of making their first signing of the summer. He is a free agent now, and entitle to sign up before the transfer window opens The player is from Argentina , and former Manchester City goal keeper Willy Carbello , and he is thirty five years old now, no problem here as goalkeepers can play till they are 40, forty years old. Chelsea have brought him to fill the vacancy caused by Amir Begovic joining Stoke City for ten million pounds. Now Willy Carbello has cleared his medical as well.
The former Barcelona and Spanish captain Carles Puyol, who was graduate from the Barcelona famous youth academy THE LA MASSIA.THE CASTLE. But during his Academy days at the La Massia, he started of as a goalkeeper, then shifted to be a holding midfielder and then a forward in his own right. But then during his time at Barcelona , the club appointed Louis Van Gaal , as their manager, so it was Louis Van Gaal who made Carles Puyol a central defender at the club,he turned out to be one for Spain as well. And he won the world cup as well as two EURO CUPS ,as well. Louis Van Gaal also wanted Carles Puyol to cut his famous long curls as well. But Carles Puyol flatly refused to cut a single strand of hair. Carles Puyol was also to be sold when at the La Massia to the Spanish club Malaga . But Carles Puyol would have nothing of it as his best friend from the youth academy was promoted to the Barcelona team, he was the famous Xavi Hernandez. He was promoted to Barcelona very soon after, the rest is history.
After Cristiano Ronaldo was accused by the Spanish tax office of committing a fraud and cheating the country of a sum of thirteen million pounds. In his image right . Now Jose Mourinho is accused of a fraud of a smaller amount it is 33 million Euros or 2.9. million pounds. From the year 2010 /2013, With Real Madrid. Now it is a well known fact that many footballers are either to young to manage their huge money they make weekly, so they have been told to appoint a registered agent to help them out. Now what I have noticed here is that Cristiano Ronaldo , Jose Mourinho have the same agent Mr Jorge Mendes. Is he ill advising them. Because now it appears there is another footballer who is being charged by the Spanish tax office , and he is a Colombian footballer called Radamel Falcao, who will be charged shortly. But this happens in Spain quite often, Lionel Messi was charged and so is Javier Mascherano. By the way Jorge Mendes is also the agent of Radamel Falcao, who played for Atletico Madrid, some years ago.

THE CHELSEA BENCH AGAINST SWANSEA CITY WAS COSTING A WHOOPING ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THREE MILLION POUNDS.
In the E.P.L match played between Chelsea and the Welsh club Swansea City, which was played on11/9/2016. The game ended in a score of 2-2. But what was surprising to me, and may not have been noticed by many was that the Chelsea substitute bench was that day costing a huge 153 .5 Million Pounds. 1) Cesc Fabregas. 28, twenty eight million pounds. 2)David Luiz. 34. thirty four million pounds. 3)Pedro Rodriguez. 22, twenty two million pounds. 4) Michy Batshuyi. 33.1. thirty three point one million pounds. 5)Marco Alonso. 20, twenty million pounds. 6) Victor Moses. 6.2 six point 2 million pounds. 7) Asmir Begovic. 9.6. Nine point six million pounds. So you can imagine what was the cost of the eleven footballers on the pitch. It was a few hundred million pounds. And fans want clubs like Arsenal to compete with them for the E.P.L title. So coming forth in the E.P/L is just as good without a sugar daddy.
Chelsea won the title in the year 2016/2017. But the previous year they lost the same title to Leicester City ,but Chelsea finished tenth on the table, then the lowest a reigning champion finished. The lowest a reining champion fished was seventh. In the year 1995/1996 Blackburn Rovers finished seventh on the E.P.L table . Then in 212/2013 Manchester United finished seventh as well in the E.P.L table. Now Chelsea won the title mainly as as they finished tenth on the table they did not play in either the Champion League or for the matter The Europa League, formerly called the U.E.F.A CUP. Another thing to note here is the Chelsea players did not have any major injuries to worry about, that kept players out for months.
The president of the Spanish La Liga Mr Javier Tarbes has said if Cristiano Ronaldo is indeed sold abroad, then it would be a very huge loss to Spain. It will be something that you can not just measure in manner. So we have to just keep our fingers crossed that he will stay in Spain only.
This could go down in the history of football as the biggest mistake ever made by A.C. Milan. It might come as a very big surprise to many to know that Pierre Erik Aubameyang the striker from Gabon, was indeed a youth academy player along with his two other brothers as well. But the Italian giants A.C.Milan club did not see much in him, leave alone his two brothers. So disappointed were the Italian club that they gave Pierre Erik Aubameyang on loan instead to clubs like Nice, Monaco St Etienne . St Etienne then went and converted the loan deal to a permanent deal for him. They then sold him to the German club Borussia Dortmund for miserly amount of 1.5 million pounds, peanuts I would say , a real bargain. You see last year at the age of 27, years he scored 40, forty goals in 45, forty five games, he was also African footballer of the year as well. Now Liverpool have made a bid for 61, sixty one million pounds.
It now looks like Liverpool have made a bid of 61, sixty one million pounds for the striker from Gabon. He has been crowned the African footballer of the year, and has already scored a total of 40, forty goals from 42 forty two games. But the big question on every ones mind is will the German club Borussia Dortmund, be willing to sell him for 61, sixty one million pounds. Or will Borussia Dortmund want a 100 hundred million pounds for him, mind you he is a wonderful striker, and has scored sacks of goals each year at Borussia Dortmund. You must remember that Manchester United paid a world record of 89, eighty nine million ;pounds for Paul Pogba.

After Cristiano Ronaldo was caught in tax evasion and fraud charges as well. He now has made it very clear that he is no longer willing to play for Real Madrid or for any club in Spain. He has said he will only continue to play in Spain with Real Madrid if they are willing to pay the thirteen million pounds., which he owes the income tax department.. So Manchester United are now willing to pay Real Madrid 183, one hundred and eighty three million pounds, and give David de Gea as well, but they want Alvaro Moorota as well as in the deal. Now Chelsea have entered the race by offering Eden Hazard as well as cash for Cristiano Ronaldo. But what these clubs have forgotten is they may the buy out clause money, but there is a big problem here Cristiano Ronaldo signed a new contract last year and four years are remaining, with a weekly salary of 365,000 three hundred and sixty five thousand pounds, which works to 175 million pounds. Now P.S.G are also keen to buy him, but Real Madrid have made it very clear Cristiano Ronaldo will not be allowed to go free.. So the best thing to do here is that Cristiano Ronaldo should pay one hundred and seventy five million pounds and take a release from Real Madrid. Once Ronaldo the Brazilian striker , paid up the money to leave Barcelona and join Inter Milan.
Now Cristiano Ronaldo is now becoming quite stupid with his demands here. Now he has told Real Madrid that there is only one way in which e will be staying at Real Madrid next season. Now he cunningly is demanding that that Real Madrid pay the thirteen million pounds which he is accused of evading paying to the income tax. Now why ever should Real Madrid pay that huge amount of thirteen million pounds, after all it was part of the money paid by companies to Cristiano Ronaldo as IMAGE RIGHTS. The club did not pay him a fine. He should grow up and be honest here, here his go which is a big one has taken a real big beating. As the saying goes Every dog his its day. The real Madrid fans made a lot of Barcelona and Lionel Messi, who was also found guilty of a similar tax evasion case.
It is no secret that Mr Florentino Perez loves to sign young dashing looking footballers for the Real Madrid club. And he loves to sign Galaticos as well, roughly once in every two years He says that these footballers have their jerseys sold very fast and in fact they make huge sums by selling the Real Madrid jersey equal to the cost of the players , for example Cristiano Ronaldo and James Rodrigues made more than what Real Madrid spent on buying them. And he usually signs a super star very two years or so, like Luis Figo ,. Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez. So who will be the super star to join Real Madrid this year.
The Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich , has made it very clear to the Italian manager at Chelsea Antonio Conte , that he must first of all sell players to buy a player. This then lead to anger and the text message sent by Antonio Conte to Diego Costa. Now reports say that Chelsea are interested in buying Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, and the new asking price is a hue crazy 350, three hundred and fifty million pounds. And he is not the only player Chelsea do want to buy, they were very keen to buy the Belgian striker Ormolu Lukaku from Everton, but Everton wan a hundred million pounds for him. In this case Chelsea will have to sell all their players I must say.
Now Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo , has made it very clear to his club that he no longer wants to play football in for real Madrid or for the matter any club in Spain. Due to the fraud charges of evading income tax to the tune of 13, thirteen million pounds. Now Real Madrid have agreed to sell him off. Now Real Madrid have made it very clear that he will not be coming cheap for sure , they are asking a sum of 175, one hundred and seventy five million pounds, which is his buy out clause in his new deal signed last year. But clubs willing to buy him will now have to shell out another 175, one hundred and seventy five million pounds. This is mainly because there are four years remaining on his contract still, and according to his latest contract he is on a weekly salary of 365,000 pounds a week. So in the four years remaining it will work out to175, one seventy five million pounds.350, Three hundred and fifty million pounds in all. Now Manchester United have come forward with an offer of 183, one hundred and eighty three million pounds as well as giving their Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea as well. But they want Alvaro Morato, as well as in this deal, but it may not work out sadly in the end. Real Madrid have gone and made it very , very clear to Cristiano Ronaldo that he will not be allowed to just walk away from Real Madrid if and when he likes, as he must honour his contract.

The Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez is getting to greedy now. As he is unwilling to sign a new contract, Arsenal have offered him a weekly salary of 280,000 pounds a week, from his old one of 130,000 pounds a week. But he is not agreeing to this in anyway. He has become far to greedy I must say, I must say he has forgotten his childhood days when he washed cars and did stunts on the road in Chile. Now the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has no desire whatsoever to sell him at any price to a club in England. Bayern Munich came forward to buy Alexis Sanchez , and solve the problem. But here Alexis Sanchez demanded a weekly salary of 420,000 pounds according to THE MMETRO. The German club were just stunned by this unrealistic and crazy demand. And he better remember this that at this asking weekly salary he will have to score five goals each match or score ninety or a hundred goals in a season, and this will never happen as he has failed to score thirty goals in a single season so far. The reason he wanted so much from Bayern Munich was he knew they the Germans would never pay so much. And he can make desired move to Manchester City. Arsene Wenger will not mind releasing him when his contract expires next year. Now when a person changes a job he can ask for a increase in salary of roughly thirty five percent only , here Alexis Sanchez is asking a increase of a few hundred percent.
Recently Cristiano Ronaldo dropped a bombshell by saying he no longer wanted to lay for Real Madrid or play in Spain either. Yes the income tax case came as a very rude shock for him ,but clearly that was not the only reason to leave. 1) The income tax fraud of 13, thirteen million pounds. 2 ) He was getting tired of the ungrateful Real Madrid fans, who were booing him the whole season, so he wanted a change now at thirty two years. He had already decided much earlier it was during the Champion League , when he spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson about a move to Manchester United. After receiving the man of the match, from Sir Alex Ferguson Real Madrid have put a price of 174. Million pounds for him. Manchester City , Manchester United and P.S.G. along with Chelsea are all interested in him.
It is slowly but surely sinking into the fans and the mighty Real Madrid club and the world over that Cristiano Ronaldo will be leaving Real Madrid for sure, and they better get used to life without Cristiano Ronaldo. Real Madrid are looking at a few other strikers who will have to fill those very large boots left by Cristiano Ronaldo . Those who might be chosen from the shortlist will now have a millstone round the neck, so will they play well? Now the three strikers short listed are as follows. 1) Robert Lewandowski , Bayern Munich and Poland. 2) Paulo Dyballa . Juventus and Argentina. 3) Kylian Mbappe. Monaco. And France. Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Real Madrid for Manchester United.
Cristiano Ronaldo who plays his club football with Spanish giants Real Madrid . Now it s brought to the knowledge of the Income Tax department that Cristiano Ronaldo failed to pay the tax on the money he made from his IMAGE RIGHTS,. Like COCO COLA, NIKE and TAGHEUR. As he is paying the twenty percent on the money he makes as tax, that part is now crystal clear , only his IMAGE RIGHTS MONEY was evaded from the year 2010/2014. But this is what Cristiano Ronaldo and his lawyer have to say. They say that the deal was made and done abroad and not in Spain, so there is no need to bring all that money to Spain and pay taxes on them, but the Spanish tax laws are different to other countries in this aspect But how much did he cheat tax on, it has now cleared as 13. Million pounds.
The Chelsea Italian coach Antonio Conte is far from agreeing to a new contract with Chelsea. And to make things worse for Antonio Conte ,the manager is not seeing eyeball to eyeball with the Russian owner Roman Abramovich. Chelsea have not yet signed a single player as yet, while Arsenal and Manchester City have started buying new players and also got rid of deadwood in the club. Antonio Conte should be warned that the Russian owner Roman Abramovich will not stand to being questioned about players he wants at Chelsea. Antonio Conte could easily be sacked by Chelsea like Jose Mourinho was sacked. But who will they get to replace Antonio Conte ? The answer here could well be the Spaniard Luis Enrique, who won nine trophies with Barcelona in three years. But the problem here is that Luis Enrique wanted a break from management after all.

The Spain and Barcelona midfielder is a very clean footballer I must say, both on and of the pitch I must say. He is one of the very few footballers in the world I would say who does not have single tattoo anywhere on his body , at a time when footballers all over the world are adding new tattoos on their bodies each day. And another point to note is he does not wear any jewellery, like earrings and so on.
Now it looks like Barcelona are leading the race to sign the Italian midfielder Marco Veratti from P.S.G in France. Chelsea to are interested in buying him. The amount is said to be about 88, eighty eight million pounds. It is a very huge amount. But Barcelona want to find a very good midfielder to replace the aging Andres Iniesta, who is now thirty three years old, and in the last few years of his football career. he reason Marco Veratti , wants a Barcelona move , is mainly because the way Barcelona played in the Champion League against P.S.G in the second leg of the group of sixteen match. P.S.G were leading 4-0 from the first leg but in the second leg Barcelona won by a score of 6-5 .With the sixth goal being scored by Sergei Roberto with last kick of the game. And the P.S.G fans were very rude and acted in a disgraceful manner attacking the P.S.G players with words and items as well. This has made I'm decide to join Barcelona this summer.
Now it looks more or likely as both Antonio Conte and the Russian owner of Chelsea , have decided to sell Diego Costa. The reason for selling him could be that Romulo Lukaku could very well be on his way to Chelsea from Everton. Now Everton are asking a very huge sum of a hundred million pounds for him, that clearly means Chelsea may not be able to pay a huge weekly salary to both these strikers, so one will have to be sold this summer. But how much will Diego Costa be missed? Diego Costa last year scored about twenty goals and got fifteen points for Chelsea , or you could say he won five games for Chelsea. Neither did Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, all scored thirteen points for their clubs.
Barcelona had brought the midfielder Andre Gomes for roughly thirty million pounds. Their main aim was to find a good replacement for the aging genius of a midfielder Andres Iniesta , who is now thirty three years old , and last year he missed a lot of games due to injury. So Barcelona are more than happy to sell him and recoup most of the money they had spent on him.
Gianluigi Donnarumma the eighteen year old goalkeeper of A.C.Milan , says he will not sign a new contract with the San Siro club next year, and could walk out as a free agent after all. This young goalkeeper stands six and a half feet in height. He was so tall as a fifteen year old boy the clubs would not believe he was only fifteen , and his mother had to carry his birth certificate in her handbag to show it to the club, . The lad has been the goalkeeper at A.C.Milan since he was sixteen years old. One thing is clear here the boy has nerves of steel I must say, as he is assistant to Gianluigi Buffon with the Azzuris. It is said that Real Madrid will buy him next year , as Jose Mourinho is now asking 00, a hundred million pounds for David de Gea. Plain madness I must say. But Juventus ,THE OLD LADY OF TURIN , also want to buy Gianluigi Donnarumma , to take over from the aging Gianluigi Buffon.
The former President of Barcelona Juan Laporta , who was President of Barcelona from the year 2003/2010. He has come out to say that Barcelona was very close to sell Lionel Messi in the year 2006, and Lionel Messi was a 18, eighteen year old boy then. The club that wanted to buy Lionel Messi was Inter Milan in Italy. They were willing to pay 150 million Euros then. But Barcelona quickly increased the buy out clause to 250, two hundred and fifty million Euros. But what did really happen from the ear 20006 to 2017? And Lionel Messi was the man involved in this records as well. In those years Barcelona won six l La Ligas, five Copa Del Rey Cups, five Spanish super cups, three Champion League Cups, and three European cups. Lionel Messi has won five footballer of the year, And has been top scorer in Europe on four occasions . So hat really would the history records show if Lionel Messi was sold in the year 2006? Juan Laporta had told Lionel Messi's father Jorge that Barcelona was the club for all round benefit for Lionel Messi not money alone.
Cristiano Ronaldo the striker for the Spanish giants Real Madrid , has now spoken to the club president Mr Florentino Perez , stating that he would very much like to leave Real Madrid this very summer transfer to play in the E.P.L. But why did he suddenly decide to leave Real Madrid , after helping them to win the La Liga as well as the Champion League. The reason that he wants to leave Real Madrid as well as Spain, is because he has been accused of avoiding paying taxes to the Spanish government, to tune of 13, thirteen million pounds . He says his conscience is very clear after all they all say the same thing,. Remember Lionel Messi and his father Jorge Messi last year to were found guilty of not paying million of pounds as taxes, and were found guilty as well , and were both fined Other people were also charged and fined like Romario , Rafael Nadal as well as the princess of Spain. But as these people have not committed a crime, they will not serve a jail sentence. But Cristiano Ronaldo will not come cheap in any since, Real Madrid say he will be costing any buyer 400, four hundred million pounds, that will be including his salary as well,. Any takers in Europe? And Cristiano Ronaldo has made it very clear, that his decision is unreverseble But Cristiano Ronaldo should always remember that Real Madrid and for the matter the smallest club will still be there , but Cristiano Ronaldo would have been forgotten by then. So threatening the club , because of your tax evading is not at all fair.

The Chapecoense football club had only five survivors from a total of 81, eighty one people on the plane. But this is not the first time or the last time such a tragedy shakes the sporting world. 1) On 8/11/1948 Czech0sovakia national football team perished in a air crash in the English Channel. 2) 4/5.1949 . The four time League champion of Italy Turin lost a total of twenty two players, including eighteen players. 3)6/2/1958 Manchester United had a total of 8, eight players in the Munich air crash. Sir Bobby Charlton escaped as he changed his place to a seat in the front. 4) 16/21961. The U.S.A Figure skating team , lost eighteen members as well as ten coaches ,in a air crash in Belgium. 5)26/9/1969Bolivia lost sixteen players two staff and coach Eustaquilo Ortuno near VIloco Bolivia. 6) 14/11/ 1970. Marshall University football team in Huntington West Virginia. 7) 14//1980. U.S. Amateur boxing team , fourteen members in Warsaw Poland. 8)28/4/1993. Zambian national football team, eighteen players and five team officials. In In Libreville Gabon. 9) 7/9/2011. Russian hockey team Lokomotiv, twenty seven players and two coaches and seven club officials as well in Tunoshna in Russia.
Leicester City was the big surprise of the 2015/2016 season no doubt about that. Their manager Claudio Ranierri very well knew that he was on survival mission with Leicester City, winning the title was not even a dream. But Leicester City won the title. But sadly Leicester City failed to put up a small fight even, they ended that season of 2016, 2017.1The lowest a defending club they finished 12th twelfth on the table ,the lowest a E.P..L was tenth in the table and it was Chelsea. But these two clubs finished seventh in the table, they were Blackburn Rovers in 1995, and Manchester United in 2013. But Nine months later Leicester City , forgot their glory days, their strikers and midfielders forgot how to pay football and even score goals, but once Claudio Ranierri was sacked ,and the caretaker manager Craig Shakespeare took over the Leicester payers scored goals at will and fro sixteenth they finished twelfth in the table. Disgusting behaviour from the board and players I must say, actually unpardonable I would say. The former player and England captain Gay Linekar said I shed a tear or Leicester City and Claudio Ranierri. There is no doubt about it The Leicester City footballers were RATS all of them, disgusting and absolute disgrace to Sports and Football.
As the footballers have their selling price increased to inflated heights , this has made things very difficult for these big clubs as well. For example both Arsenal and Real Madrid have shown a lot of interest in signing the 18, eighteen year old French striker called Kylian Mbappe, from the French club Monaco, they are asking 120 million pounds, which is just plain crazy money. While Real Madrid always sell a few players to buy a big star, for example when Cristiano Ronaldo was brought for eighty million ;pounds from Manchester United , Real then sold Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder, for big money. And when they brought Gareth Bale from Tottenham Hotspurs, both Gonzalo Higuaín and Alvaro Morato were sold, Now when they want Kylain Mbappe, they will sell Alvaro Morato for 70, seventy million pounds some small players will also be shown the door to generate 140,one hundred and forty million pounds., and Fabio Conterao will be given out on loan as well. While Arsenal on the other hand are willing to pay a sum of 87, eighty seven million pounds and they will give a striker as well to Monaco, he is Olivier Giroud.
There is no doubt at all that the Italian manager at Chelsea Antonio Conte, it is not only about Deigo Costa but also big problems with the board . Chelsea being the E.P.L champions for the year 2016/2017, have not made a single big transfer as yet, and neither have they got replacements for footballers sold over a year ago, like Ramirez , Oscar and Branislav Ivanovic. And the way Antonio Conte has handled the Deigo Costa case is very poor and shows us that the club have no culture or class in them. As Antonio Conte sent a text message to Deigo Costa in Spain ,as he was on international duty , the text has now become viral, and has brought Deigo Costa selling price much lower. But the former Chelsea player Gianfranco Zola has suggested that Chelsea should buy the Italian striker Andres Be loti, even if he will cost the club 88, eighty eight million pounds.

The Brazilian football club Chapeoense , which was on a chartered flight to Colombia , to play in its biggest football match in their history . they were flying to Colombia to play in the SUDAMERICANA CUP, Equal to THE EUROPEA LEAGUE in Europe. And they were flying to play the first leg against the Colombian club Atletico Nacional. The flight was a chartered flight, and the plane belonged to to a retired Bolivian general, who has now lost his licence and all planes have been grounded. There were a total of 81, eighty one people on board but only five escaped alive. It included crew, staff, players and journalists. The five survivors were told to go and sit in front with the team and leave the back seats for the journalists. But what caused the crash ? Early reports say that the plane was running out of fuel, as the plane could not land at one place as the airport was shut early in the morning, and support this theory is that there was no fire after the crash, indicating that the plane crashed in the jungle .The club Chapeoense were playing a few years in the lower division in Brazil but since 2014 they have been in the top division. But what now for the club, who must rebuild their club from scratch. Brazilian clubs have come forward to suggest that the club should not be relegated for three years, so that they can rebuild the team. The Atletico Nacoinol team agreed to et the Brazilian club Chapeoense win the SUDAMERICANA CUP. It was indeed a sad day for football and the football world as a whole.
I would very much like to ask my many readers , who was the last footballer to win the Footballer of the year or THE BALLON D Or? Now for the last ten years it is either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo., With Cristiano Ronaldo expected to win his fifth BALLON D Or. Same as Lionel Messi. The last footballer to win this award was the Brazilian footballer Kaka.
The Swiss footballer Granit Xahka who plays his club football with Arsenal in England, and he has been sent out a few times for both club and country, but let us not make to much fuss here . As you see both the red cards he got while playing for Arsenal , in the year 2016/2017 , were shown by the same referee Mr Jonathan Moss, and they were both very harsh decisions I must say. But he has very good control of the ball and makes very good long passes to his team mates far on the pitch , you should watch them to believe it. But if you look into the football history you will finds players like Patrick Vieira, Roy Keane, Gatusso, Paul Scholes, these were real tough nuts to crack, and all of them got plenty of yellow as well as red cards.
It looks more and more likely that Everton are going to sign the young Sunderland goalkeeper Jonathan Pickford, Sunderland are demanding 0, thirty million pounds for him, which is far to much according to me. Firstly he was at a club that was recently relegated from the E.P.L, in fact they finished right at the bottom of the table for the year 2016/2017. And he conceded about 28 goals. But why is thirty million pounds for him to much is because of these three goalkeepers came combined for a cheaper sum then Jonathan Pickford. Keylor Nava's the Real Madrid goalkeeper, Jan Oblak the Atletico Madrid goalkeeper and Mac AndreStergen the Barcelona goalkeeper all three came for a total of 2.7 million pounds.

I really fail to understand these Arsenal fans, and especially Mr Piers Morgan . Each year this stupid idiot demands that Arsenal sack Arsene Wenger , the Arsenal manager, he even says that the fans should boycott Arsenal matches at the Emirate Stadium. But this fool does not understand, that empty seats make no difference whatsoever as the attendance for a match is counted by the number of tickets that are sold that day for the match, so seats are not counted. He Mr Piers Morgan wanted Arsene Wenger out as the EP.L cup was not won by Arsenal for thirteen years. But you must remember finishing fourth in England is very good as ,in other countries like Spain it is always Real Madrid or Barcelona, France t is P.S.G, in Italy it is Juventus I Holland it is Ajax, in Scotland it is Celtic. Only in England will you get a surprise winner like Leicester City last year. Liverpool have not won the E.P.L over twenty two years, but the club and fans do not hound their manager the way Arsenal fans do, they demanded Arsene Wenger out at the funniest places, these fools called fans held placard of Wenger out , in the U.S.A, at the Royal Rumble, at a N.L.F. match and at a basketball game. The Arsenal fans grumbled a great deal of the price of their tickets but these fools hired a plane with a banner in the skies saying WENGER OUT. Arsene Wenger got the Emirate Stadium built , even signed a as a guaranteer that he would not leave Arsenal for five years, and during that time he had offers to manage Real Madrid, P.S.G, Manchester City and Bayern Munich as well all big clubs mind you. Mr Piers Morgan and some fans, the young new fans wanted Arsene Wenger out, so do you have a manager who will last three years at Arsenal and reach the champion league all three years I doubt it very much. Mind you Arsene Wenger has won sixteen trophies for Arsenal in twenty years ,how many managers can do something like this, reach the champion League nineteen times in twenty years, not many can do it. And remember you silly Arsenal fans Mr Sam Kronke will not sack Arsene Wenger , as the Arsenal shares are doing very well and Kronke made a billion pounds from his Arsenal shares. While last year the Manchester United shares fell badly, and shareholders lost 700 million pounds. SO IN ARSENE WENGER WE TRUST. Sadly when a survey was taken for the worst atmosphere in the stadiums Arsenal was the stadium with the worst atmosphere from the twenty clubs. And the hounding of Arsene wenger was absolutely disgusting and unpardonable. And you silly fans better understand this that if the owner and the Arsenal board want to keep Arsene Wenger after thesr two years ,you fans have no choice whatsoever here.
It may come as a big surprise to many considering the many famous a very highly paid footballers who are now playing in the E.P.L over the years. But there are only Four footballers to score twenty or more goals each year for three years in a row. They are as follows . 1) Alan Shearer. 2) Thierry Henry. 3) Ruud Van Nistelrooy 4) Harry Kane..
Chelsea are looking out for a goalkeeper as they have gone and sold their spare goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, in this summer window. Chelsea have now shortlisted the former Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Carbello, who was thirty five years old and his contract had expired at Manchester City, But to be honest to him he did a very good job, as he took over the goalkeepers job from Chilean goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, who was making far to many blunders and letting goals in. But Willy Carbello has said he has offers from Spain, Italy and Argentina as well, so nothing is done and dusted here, we will have to wait now.
This is the number of goals scored by some big clubs in Europe by the 9/5/2017, at almost the end of the season. 1 Barcelona scored 160 , one hundred and sixty goals. 2) Real Madrid have scored 157.,one hundred and fifty seven Goals. 3) Monaco have scored 150 , one hundred and fifty Goals.. 4) Manchester United have scored a total of 99, ninety nine goals only. But mind you in four years they have spent 450,million pounds.

The Barcelona strikers Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, are really very talented and lethal finishers when scoring goals, you could very well say real South American talent. They send fear in the spine of the defenders of any club . Now from the 2014 season hen Neymar and Luis Suarez joined Lionel Messi as Barcelona strike partners, known to the football world as M.N.S. Last season in early March these three famous footballers have now scored a total of 300, three hundred goals between themselves only. The previous year these three strikers scored 120, one hundred and twenty goals. And to make it clear the entire Bayern Munich scored 120 goals between all the players.
These are the footballers from Barcelona o have gone and reached the magical figure of 100, hundred goals. The list also includes the number of games taken to reach a hundred goals. And what will come as a very big surprise to many football fans is that Lionel Messi who is a free scoring gaol scorer over over the years took 188 games to score his hundred goals. 1)Mariano Martin 100 goals in 99 Games. 2 )Lazio Kabala. 100 goals in 103 Games. 3) Luis Suarez. 100 Goals in 120 games. 4) Eulogia Martinez. 100 goals in 136 Games. 5)Samuel Eto'o. 100 goals in 157 Games. 6)Rivaldo. 100 goals in 173 Games.. 7) Hrito Stoichkov, 100goals in 186 Games. 8) Lionel Messi. 100 goals in 188 Games.
For the year 2015/2016 the most money made by football clubs around Europe , from ticket sales only ,and the winner was a big surprise to me. The winners were Arsenal in England and Real Madrid from Spain. Both these clubs sold tickets for a huge 310, three hundred and ten million pounds. Arsenal must be congratulated here for the reason The Arsenal stadium THE EMIRATES STADIUM, has a sitting capacity of 60,400 only. While Real Madrid have 84,000 sitting capacity. But what ok me back by surprise here was how did Barcelona with a 99,000 stadium, Manchester United with over 70,000 stadium, and the Allianz Arena of Bayern Munich with a 80,000 stadium, mind you it was enlarged for the 2006 world cup. After all these stadiums are filled to the full capacity.
Really a great deal is being said of the young nineteen year old French striker Kaylin Mbappe, who is playing his club football with Monaco, the club were asking a sum of over 110, a hundred a ten million pounds. And for me it is to much of money for a nineteen year old boy. So let us look at some other youngsters and see what they have done. 1) Cristiano Ronaldo joined Manchester United as a eighteen year old boy , for total fee of 12, twelve million pounds, he joined from Sporting Lisbon in Portugal. Also played for Real Madrid. He has won four Ballon d ' OR awards, and has scored six hundred goals for all clubs, he has scored a hundred goals n the champion league as well.. 2)Francesco Totti, joined A.S.Roma as a sixteen year old boy, he played twenty five years for A.S.Roma only, scoring many goals. 3) Ronaldinho at nineteen years of age and playing for Crueizero he scored 23 , twenty three goals in single match. He played for P.S.G, Barcelona and A.C.Milan.. Also won Ballon d Or thrice. 4) Ronaldo Lima the other famous Brazilian at nineteen years was a star , he played for P.S.V. Eindhoven, Barcelona and Real Madrid. Was the footballer of the year three times. He scored fifteen goals for Brazil in the world cup, and this record was broken by Miroslav Klose in the 2014 world cup in Brazil with 16 goals. 5)John Terry played eighteen years for Chelsea after joining the club from the youth Academy, and is also a Champion League winner. And please note will you that Ronaldo Lima, Ronaldinho and Francesco Totti are world cup winners. 5) Lionel Messi joined Barcelona at thirteen years , he has scored over 500,, five hundred goals for Barcelona, and has won the Ballon d Or five times . So let me ask will Kylan Mbappe ever be in the same class as these footballers. Mind you these footballers come once in a blue moon to entertain us , and can not be copied. By the way Cristiano Ronaldo is a European cup winner.

The Brazilian born Spanish striker Diego Costa , who is playing his club football with Chelsea in England for the past few years. But as he was with the Spanish team,preparing themselves for a world cup qualifying match. It was while on national duty that Diego Costa got a text message from the Chelsea manager Antonio Conte ,that it was made very clear to the Spaniard that he would not be fitting into the plans for the new season ,and he was free to move on during the summer transfer window. But it is not going to be that easy after all as Diego Costa still has two years remaining on his contract, which will mean a great deal of money Chelsea will have to pay Diego Costa, as compensation. Another point to taken care of is that he had made it very clear that the only club he ever wanted to join was Atletico Madrid his old club. But unfortunately Atletico Madrid are facing a transfer ban from F.I.F.A, for buying under age players, and the court has told the Atletico Madrid club that they can only buy players in the 2018 January transfer window. And if he is not playing regularly, he may not be chosen for Spain for the 2018 world cup next year in Russia. But what could have gone wrong for the Chelsea striker? It now looks very likely that the Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku , who is playing his club football in England with Everton could join Chelsea with a price of 80, eighty or a 100, eighty or hundred million pounds. But the other Belgian striker Mitsi Batshuayi wants to leave Chelsea.
Arsene Wenger the Arsenal manager always likes to buy young footballers and develop them as polished diamonds later on , Nickolas Anelka, Thierry Henry and Robin Van Persie are examples. Many other young stars like Yaya Toure, Petr Czech Cristiano Ronaldo and Fernando Torres are others. It is not always that Arsene wenger failed to buy them as there was always a reason, either the club did not want to sell them or these footballers were not given a work permit in England. Atletico Madrid in Spain closed their youth Academy in the year 1992, and they sold out their young striker Raul Gonzales to city rival Real Madrid. But what was very shocking here was that Raul Gonzales joined on a free transfer ,he was absolutely free. Raul did not take long to settle at Real Madrid , he started scoring sacks of goals at Real Madrid and soon was the Darling of the club. He was highest goal scorer for Real Madrid, Spain and most goals to be scored in the champion League, till they were all beaten by Cristiano Ronaldo. Looking at this Atletico Madrid flatly refused to sell Arsenal Fernando Torres at any price. Fernando Torres was called THE EL NINO OR the kid.. Arsene Wenger then went and brought a unused winger at Juventus called Thierry Henry instead, and made him a striker, and of course the rest is history.
Now a days footballers are becoming far to greedy, and asking for huge weekly salaries as well which are not at all realistic in the first place. For example Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are refusing to sign a new contract at Arsenal, and stubbornly demanding a weekly salary of 300,000 , three hundred thousand pounds. But these footballers must remember is that if they are demanding this crazy weekly salary then they must score a hat trick in every match they play. And in a year they will have to score seventy to eighty goals, to do any justice for the huge salary they demanded. Which is next to impossible even Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi can score so many goals . Another thing to consider here is that no player can get a higher salary than the manager. For example before Arsene Wenger signed a new contract recently he was just getting a weekly salary of 175,000 pounds a week.
The Arsenal fans who demand that Arsenal should sack Arsene wenger , each year should have their heads examined by a psychiatric doctor. Arsene wenger joined Arsenal in the year 1996, so this will now be twenty one years since he took over at Arsenal. So What has he done at Arsenal ? 1) Arsene Wenger has a new two year contract at Arsenal.In twenty years Arsenal for the first time have failed to reach the champion League in twenty years, o other manager has taken a single club to nineteen champion league games in a row. 2) Arsene wenger has spent close to 700, seven hundred million pounds in twenty one years. Manchester United have spent 400 million Pounds in four years, But he brought 162 players dutring twenty one years. 3) He has managed a total of 790 seven hundred and ninety games for Arsenal, he has won 475 , four hundred and seventy five wins. 193 one hundred and ninety-three draws. And also lost 140 , one hundred and forty games. 4) Arsene Wenger has won 17 titles at Arsenal, so seventeen titles in twenty years is not bad at all. Now shall we see how many managers the other big clubs in the E.P.L have had in twenty years. 5)Chelsea have had 17, managers, Liverpool had seven managers ,Manchester City had 13 managers, and Manchester United have had five managers. His love for Arsenal was so very strong that he even signed a bond to the banks in the mortgage for the building of the EMIRATE STADIUM. .

The Manchester United fans need not get to excited about reaching the Champion League next year , just because they defeated a very young but very talented young Ajax team Now the Manchester United team the fans and the club board should instead be hanging their heads in shame ere, the reason is the club have just buying trophies I must say. Let me make myself crystal clear and mind you I am not at all jealous here. When Sir Alex Ferguson retired in the year 2013,and the manager he chose to take over was David Mayes, and the other manages Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho have gone and spent a very huge sum of money on just average players mind you. The total spent from 2014 to the year 2017, that is before the summer transfer window opened recently was a huge total of 400, four hundred million pounds. So how large this sum is can be compared with the Dutch giants Ajax of Amsterdam, who haven now also spent four hundred million ponds, but the big difference is that Ajax have spent the same money from the year 1945, or since the end of World War 2. Manchester United defenders are the problem here, along with a striker. As one of the defenders can be of the same class as Rio Ferdinand , Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic and Garry Neville. So till they do it they will still leak in goals.
In the champion League match played between two giants , F.C.Barcelona and French giants P.S.G. This was the second leg match played at the Nou Camp.P.S.G were leading Barcelona with a first leg score of 4-0, and Barcelona were laying just for pride here. and Luis Suarez clearly said . That if there is a football club that can a wipe out a four goal lead ,the club is Barcelona, and he proved it. Barcelona scored the first goal in the third minute.4-1 aggregate for P.S.G .Lavin Kurzawa, scored a own goal in the 40th minute. Aggregate 4-2. Lionel Messi scored in the fiftieth minute.Agggregate 4-3 .Then Edison Cavani scored a goal for P.S.G.Aggregate 5-3 in the 62nd minute. Neymar then scored with a free kick in the 88th minute, Aggregate P.SG 5Barcelona 4.P.S.G 5.Neymar scores a penalty in the 90+1 minute. Aggregate now stood at 5-5.Deep into injury time Sergio Roberto scored the winning goal in the 95th minute, in fact this was the last kick of the match, and it ended 6-5 aggregate to Barcelona a real comeback if there ever was one. But where did P.S.G lose out to Barcelona here? PS.G were too sure of a win here.but in football anything can happen.They also lost it in possession Barcelona had 71 percentage of the possession, while P.S.G had only 29 percent of possession. Barcelona had 9 shits P.S.G had 3 shots on target. The attendance was a solid 96,290 football fans , not a single eye was dry strangers hugged and kissed their neighbours in the stands, it was a sight to watch.
The Norwegian striker Ole Gunnar Solsjkar, who played for a while with Manchester United, till he was forced to retire from football due to a ankle injury that just would not heal properly He was also called the baby faced assassin. Bathe best pet name was THE SUPER SUB, and he did full justice to it. We all know in the Champion League match between Manchester United and Bayern Munich , he scored two goals to win that years champion league. But he also holds the record for scoring four goals in a single match after coming on as a substitute. The match was played between Manchester United and Nottingham Forest, played on 16/2/1999. This match ended with a score of 8/1. Win for Manchester United.
In the Spanish La Liga title chase was a hard fought race with Real Madrid winning the title with a close three point margin only. But what must be taken into consideration here is that in Spain they do not have GOAL LINE TECHNOLOGY. As the Spanish F.A says it is too far a costly thing for them. Why I say this is that Barcelona were stolen of all three points as a clear goal and winning points were stolen by the referee, so in othrer words Real Madrid have won the title by a single point. The Real Madrids footballers were each given a huge bonus for winning the Spanish La Liga title as well as the Champion League title as well. The money given to each footballer was Two Million Pounds.
At the end of the season football clubs are now rewarded by huge sums of money ,and each year the Television rights money is getting larger, so the footbball clubs are benifitting in a very rich way I must say. In England the Television money is equally devided between the 20, twenty clubs that played in the E.P.L that year, while it is not the same in Spain . In Spain the two Spanish giants Real Madrid and F.C.Barcelona are yearly paid a giants portion of the money in Spain,and the other eighteen clubs devide the rest of the money equally. Real Madrid won the Champion League for the year 2016/2017. But they collected a sum of 80, Eighty million pounds for winning the Champion League. While on the other hand the English Club Sunderland came right at the bottom of the table in the E.P.L nd were even relegated at the end of the season. But they , Sunderland collected a huge sum of 93, Ninetythree million pounds. This is really unfair to other clubs I must say.
Even though over the years there have been large number of footballers both from England as well as many countries from Europe , Africa and Asia. But till this there is a very Unique record which still stands in the name of Steven Gerrard who played for both Enland as well as Liverpool ,in his long and glittering football career. Now Steven Gerrard is the only footballer ever to play in England ,and aslso to score in the finals of the Champion League, The F.A.Cup, The League Cup, called formery The Carlling cup. And also the U.E,F,A Cup ,now it is called the Europea League Cup.
