The big question is whether it is more easy to score goals in Spain , then it is to core goals in England, where the game is more fast as well as physical in England. For example the Spaniard Iago Aspas was utter failure at Liverpool could not take a corner even properly. But back I Spain , and playing for Celtic Vigo he has gone with all guns firing he has now scored 53 goals in a total of 99 ninety nine games for Celtic Vigo, what a change I must say.
Lionel Messi has now become the first footballer in Spain to go and score well over 30, thirty goals in a season . And to do it a total of seven years in all. Cristiano Ronaldo has not done it so farP Some famous footballers have scored thirty odd goals only once like Thierry Henry, Andy Cole, Robin Van Persie, Alan Shearer has done it twice.
Let us look carefully at the title winner in Spain for the last ten years , and the result should silence the Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo fans. In the last ten years Barcelona won the La Liga title seven times, and Atletico Madrid have won it twice and Real Madrid won the title only once. The year real Madrid won the title was in the year 2016/2017. So in other words Barcelona are a far superior club compare to Real Madrid. What must also be taken into notice here is that Barcelona have also won the COPA DEL REY CUP roughly five times in this ten years.
Carlo Anchelotti the Italian manager who had managed big clubs in the past like A.C.Milan, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Bayern Munich as well, all these clubs are giants in their own countries And he has also won the champion league cup with A.C. Milan and with Real Madrid as well. At present e is out of work and was looking to take over at Arsenal, once Arsene wenger does leave Arsenal at the end of the season. But during this time he was offered the job of the Italian National team, as the Italians have failed to qualify for the 2018 world cup in Russia. And Italy miss out from a world club for the first time in 60, sixty years. But now according to THE METRO, Carlo Anchelotti has decided to snub the Italian job, and is more keener to take up the Arsenal job.

Lionel Messi scored a massive hat trick and the Brazilian play maker Philippe Coutinho scored the other goal. Barcelona had also won the COPA DEL REY cup as well this season , so it was a very good year for the Catalonia club. And what must be remembered here is that Barcelona have won two trophies this year with out the help of the silly greedy Brazilian Neymar.Who wants him at Barcelona?
The English football club Arsenal have decided that they will nit be employing the Spanish manager Luis Enrique next season for sure. Now Luis Enrique played for both the Spanish giants Barcelona as well as Real Madrid, during his football career. He then spent three years as manager of Barcelona where he won the treble . The reason that Arsenal were not keen at all to appoint him as the next manager was mainly he was asking a yearly salary at Arsenal to be too high as he wanted 15 fifteen million pounds before tax. He had a yearly salary at Barcelona which was 13, thirteen million pounds But at Arsenal he wanted a shopping bag of 200 two hundred million pounds for his summer transfer. And he also wanted to replace every one at Arsenal besides Alexander Lacazatte and Pierre Emirik Abumayeng, who were safe. But Arsenal had already said that Arsenal new manager would get only50, fifty million pounds. in this summer transfer.

Cesc Fabregas reached the magical figure of scoring 50, fifty goals for Chelsea, during his Chelsea career. He also becomes the third Spaniard to score 50, fifty goals in his ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE CAREER. The other Spaniards to do it are Diego Costa, Fernando Torres and Cesc Fabregas.

The Italian club Napoli , who are giving Juventus a real tough time this season in Italy for the title. Now the Italian club Napoli are looking for a new goalkeeper, as their Spanish goalkeeper Jose Pepe Reina is wanted by another Italian club A.C.Milan. Now A.C. Milan ae afraid that their young goalkeeper Gianluigi Donaroumma could be leaving A.C. Milan in the summer transfer window. So it looks like the Italian club Napoli , are keen to sign the Chilean goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, from Manchester City. But the big problem will be his weekly swages. As Manchester City are now paying Claudio Bravo a weekly salary of100,000 one hundred thousand pounds, and this could be a big sticking point in the talks as Napoli will not be willing to pay Claudio Bravo that much money. But if Claudio Bravo wants to play regular football he should move on otherwise he will always play second fiddle to Ederson in the goal for Manchester City.
During the EUROPA LEAGUE semi final first leg match played between Arsenal and Atletico Madrid, played at the EMIRATE STADIUM. Just after twelve minutes into the match the Atletico player Semi Vrlsjko was sent out after getting two yellow cards in the first twelve minute, this clearly shows that the Atletico Madrid footballer is brainless. The manager of Diego Simone was also booked for abusing the referee. So both will miss the second leg of the Semi finals, and it is reported in he metro that the Argentinean Diego Someone will be now facing a five match ban for abusing the referee.
The Spanish manager Luis Enrique who during his club days played for both the Spanish giants Real Madrid as well as for Barcelona, he even managed Barcelona as a manager for three years. he is now a candidate for the post of the manager for Arsenal. but the deal may hit rock bottom early on as Luis Enrique was getting a yearly salary of13, thirteen million pounds . But now he is asking Arsenal to pay him fifteen million pounds before tax. And what me must remember here is that Arsenal are very strict with their weekly wages a well. Arsene wenger getting a yearly salary of 8, eight million pounds, after staying on at Arsenal for 22, twenty two years Now Luis Enrique can now try and get the managers job at Chelsea, as Antonio Conte is leaving Chelsea at the end of the season.
The Spanish club Atletico Bilbao may not have won many big trophies , and they have a very good reason to. This Spanish club from the Basque region of Spain, only allow footballers from the Basque region to either join the club and also their academy, they believe in complete loyalty to the club, so naturally with out buying famous footballers from around the world they can not win trophies. Atletico Bilbao have introduced award for footballers, who have been loyal to one club only, and this year it is the fourth year since they give away the famous trophy. The previous winners were as follows . 1) Paulo Maldini. A.C.. Milan. 2) Le Tissier. Southampton. 3) Sepp Meir. Bayern Munich. 4) Carle's Puyol. Barcelona.

But Arsene wenger has not been carried away with the offer as yet and he still prefers to manage a club either in France or for the matter in Spain.

The Spain and Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta has made it very clear that he would now be moving to a club in China. A few eyes were raised when they heard the news. Andres Iniesta has now gone and made it amply clear that he would be playing in China only and he would not be playing for any club in Europe. The reason being he never wanted to play against his old club Barcelona in the Champion League or for the matter in the EUROPA LEAGUE, also called the U.E.F.A cup . Both Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez were world cup and two EURO CUP winners as well. And were masters where passing and control of the ball was concerned. Sadly they do not produce such footballers these days. His loyalty for Barcelona is clearly seen here, when loyalty has taken a back seat. Andres Iniesta had joined the Barcelona youth academy called THE LA MASIA or THE CASTLE as a 12 twelve year old boy Ad Andres Iniesta has a wine business set up by his grand father, called INIESTA WINES.
The Spanish manager Unai Emery , the Spaniard manager of the French giants P.S.G.has said that he will be stepping down as the manager of P.S.G. at the end of this season. But now P.S.G have offered Arsene Wenger a four year deal to join the French giants P.S G. as their General Manager. Now P.S.G have fallen short of the champion league each year, getting knocked out in the quarter finals. Whether Arsene wenger will take up the job or not is yet to be seen. And if U.E.F.A who are seriously investigating whether P.S.G are guilty of breaking FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES. Where the buying of Neymar and kylian Mbappe are concerned.
The Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho who has always had a very huge ego problem, and thinks no end about himself. Always lies to taunt Arsene wenger as THE SPECIALIST ONE IN FAILURE. So last year when Arsene wenger had signed a new two year contract with Arsenal, Jose Mourinho was back to his dirty ways of taunting Arsene Wenger for signing a two year contract at Arsenal, and called him a SPECIALIST IN FAILURE , again. But Arsene wenger replied to him by saying that he, ARSENE WENGER was never ever sacked by a club in his entire career , and here Jose Mourinho was sacked twice by the same club Chelsea. Jose Mourinho had his big ego really damaged that day.
Now Manchester united are now trying to resign their former defender Johnny Evans, from West Brom Albion. Now Johnny Evans who plays Republic Of Ireland, was playing for Manchester United during the time of Sir Alex Ferguson as the manager of Manchester United. But Manchester United sold Johnny Evans for a very small fee of six million pounds. But now West Brom Albion are going to be relegated from the E.P.L so the selling price of Johnny Evans has fallen down to 3, three million pounds. But West Ham united are also keen to sign up Johnny Evans.
The Spaniard Santiago Carzola who got injured way back in October 2016, and has not played a minute for Arsenal. He had a horrible time out I must say just imagine undergoing a total of ten operations on his Achilles tendon. And a skin graph was also done , a tattoo from his arm was removed and transplanted on his leg. At one time it was so bad that it was really felt that he would loose his leg for good, as it was to be amputated , and that would be the end of his football career. But that did not happen fortunately , and he is going to make a come back in two weeks time. Hats off to the medical staff, once it was all dark and gloomy at Arsenal not now. Arsene Wenger and Arsenal even gave him a new contract during that horrible period. He was one footballer Arsenal really missed in those two years.

The jersey number seven is worn with great pride at Manchester United, famous players like George Best, Bryan Robson , Eric cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo all wore that number 7 seven jersey. David Beckham left in 2003 for Real Madrid and later Cristiano Ronaldo wore it till the year 2009, when he joined Real Madrid. It was worn for a very short time by Antonio Valencia , but he found the pressure and expectations to much or him he then went back to his old number. But then Sir Alex Ferguson called both the Michaels to the office, that is Michael Carrick and Michael Owen, and offered both of them the famous jersey number7, seven. Michael Carrick refused to change the number which he already had and Michael Owen was to glad to get the jersey number 7, seven.
The Spaniard Luis Enrique ,who is one of the candidates to be the new Arsenal manager once Arsene wenger steps down at the end of the season. Luis Enrique wants to buy players and do a complete overhaul of Arsenal, and wants to spend really big now. he wants to spend a total sum of 200, two hundred million pounds on buying new players in the summer. But it is reported that the new manager who ever he is will be given only a transfer purse of 50, fifty million pounds. So in other words Luis Enrique will have to first sell players before he can even think of buying new players. Luis Enrique has also gone and made it very crystal clear to Arsenal, that there are only two footballers who can say that they are safe at Arsenal, and they are Alexander Lacazatte and Pierre Emirik Abumeyang. Arsenal should remember that if you are going to sell nine players then when you go and buy another nine players, then you will find that the new players will not gel as a team, so buying three at a transfer window would be right. Arsenal and now enter the big spending clubs, which they never were for 22, twenty two years under Arsene Wenger. Now will Arsenal develop youngsters which Arsene Wenger did or buy big players at high prices?
Tottenham Hotspurs have now decided that their players are good but not good enough when it comes to playing in the Champion League, as they have found out that in the last two years they have been knocked out early in the Champion League. The four payers to be sold in the summer transfer window are Danny Rose, Victor Wanyama Toby Alderweirld and Dembele. Tottenham Hotspurs are expecting to generate a huge sum of 170, one hundred and seventy million pounds. Danny Rose , Toby Alderwerld and Victor wanyama , are all costing around 50, fifty million pounds each and Dembele who has just a year remaining on his contract will now be sold for 20, twenty million pounds. Now I also wonder if these players are being also sold to pay for their new stadium, which is still being built.
The Brazilian striker Neymar, who is playing his club football in France with P.S.G. Now he has had a fracture on his leg and has been out of action since that injury took place. But Neymar seems alright as he was dancing with the help of the cane. He claims he is recovering from the injury and is in fact doing very well and could even play for Brazil at the 2018 world cup in Russia. But the stories going around the media is that Neymar has no desire whatsoever to return to France and the Paris club P.S.G. It looks like Neymar wants to make a move to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window. And there is another story going around and that is that there is a clause put into the contract of Neymar at P.S.G. The clause is that in the year 2019 any club can buy Neymar , from P.S.G, and all that club has to do is to pay out P.S.G 222two hundred and twenty two million EUROS or for the matter pay the club 198, one hundred and ninety eight million pounds. The amount P.S.G paid the Spanish giants Barcelona.
The welsh winger Gareth Bale , who is playing his club football in Spain with the Spanish giants Real Madrid. Now Real Madrid want to generate funds to sell a few players first. So it looks like Gareth Bale, Kareem Benzema and few others could be sold out. Real Madrid have said that they will first have to sell their Welsh winger, before they can buy the Belgian play maker Eden hazard. Now it appears that the German giants Bayern Munich want to buy Gareth Bale to replace their long serving Dutch winger Arjen Robben. But will the deal now go through is to be seen.
the Spaniard Luis Enrique who played for both the Spanish giants Real Madrid as well as Barcelona, and he was the manager of Barcelona for three years. Now it looks like Luis Enrique will have a better chance of joining Chelsea, in the summer then joining Arsenal in the summer. And it looks more and more likely that Chelsea will have to pay the Italian Antonio Conte ten million pounds as compensation. Luis Enrique has told both Chelsea and Arsenal that he wants a yearly salary of a huge sum of 15, fifteen million pounds. Mind you he was only paid 13, thirteen million pounds, while he was employed at Barcelona.
There will be not just one but three Liverpool players who will be facing a very big problem , and that is playing the champion League final in Kiev on 25/5.2018. The Muslim celebrate the holy month of Ramadhan by fasting from sunrise to sunset. So how much will it affect the following players is to be seen, as the month long fasting begins on 15/5/2018, and ten days later is the Champion League final on the 25/5/2018. The three Liverpool players who may be affected are Mohammed Salah, Emre Can and Saido Mane.
Now Liverpool have gone and made it very clear to Real Madrid that their Egyptian winger Mohammed Salah is not for sale, even at 200 two hundred million pounds. This year Mohammed Salah has really been on fire and has scored 42 forty two goals for Liverpool. It is mainly because of the goals that Liverpool are where they are today in the Champion League as well as in the English Premier League. But at the same time we all know that Real Madrid are going to overhaul their entire team and many will be sold to generate funds to buy players. But no matter what Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp say about not selling Mohammed Salah, they must remember two things. 1) They said the same thing where Philippe Coutinho was concerned , that he would not be sold at any price. When Barcelona came with the money they sold their Brazilian Play maker. 2) Please note Mohammed Salah does not have a buy out clause in his contract, so things become more complicated.
The five footballers to make the most appearances in the champion league are as follows. 1 ) Iker Casillas. 161. Games. 2) Cristiano Ronaldo 151. Games. 3) Xavi Hernandez. 151,. Games. $) Raul Gonzales. 146. Games. 5) Ryan Giggs. 141. Games.

Breaking records is nothing new for Cristiano Ronaldo. In the champion League Semi final match played against the German giants Bayern Munich, in Germany, even though Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score a goal,he still went on o break a new record all the same. Cristiano Ronaldo has now gone and won a total of 999 ninety nine champion League matches. The previous record was jointly held by Iker Casillas and Cristiano Ronaldo, who had both won 98 ninety eight matches.
The best match and year for both Arsenal as well as Arsene Wenger was the champion league semi final match of the ear 2006. The match was played between Arsenal and Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernbeau . And that year Real Madrid were the then called THE GALATICOS .And they had a very good team of Iker Casillas, David Beckham,Luis Figo, Kaka, Zinedine Zidane as well as Ronaldo. While on the other hand Arsenal were a young team, with hardly any big footballers like Real Madrid. But Arsenal knocked out Real Madrid from the champion League, and they had already knocked out Juventus from the Champion League in Turin earlier. But sadly Arsenal lost their Champion League match final to mighty Barcelona with a score line of 2-1 in favour of Barcelona. And Arsenal had to play most of the match with ten men, as their German goalkeeper Jens Lehman was shown a straight red card for bringing a Barcelona striker shown the box and conceding a penalty. This was the highest Arsenal and Arsene wenger have ever been at the champion league.
Many football fans must have been wondering why ever on earth did A. S.Roma sell Mohammed Salah to Liverpool in the summer transfer window. Now the Sporting director of A.S. Roma has opened the lid to let us know what was the real reason to sell him to Liverpool. A.S. Roma were clearly not balancing their books last year , and were being observed by U.E.F.A. So they sold Mohammed Salah for 35 ,thirty five million pounds, and counting his weekly salary as well, A. S Roma managed to balance their books and please U.E.F.A. as well.
There is no doubt about it that the Arsenal board are having a real tough time finding a manage who ants to be the new manager of Arsenal, afer Arsene Wenger doesleave at the end of the season. The had made a shortlist of candidates to take over the job of Arsene Wenger. 1) Carlo Anchelotti. has bee offered the job of manager of the Italian national team, as they missed out of the world cup. 2) Brendan Rodgers. Prefers to stay at Celtic. 3) Diego Simone. Wants to remain in sunny Spain with Atletico Madrid. 4) Patrick Vieira wants to stay on in the U.S.A with Major League Soccer. 5) Joachim Low says he will be to fatigued after the world cup. 6) Luis Enrique wants 15, fifteen million pounds a year at arsenal. I do agree he shoes left by Arsene Wenger were going to be to big to fill for sure. Arsenal's trouble have just started.
The football club Panathiakonis , who are also the oldest football club from Greece. But now Panathaikonis are fined and banned by the U.E.F.A . The reason for the huge fine and ban was because the Greek club failed to clear up their debts as well. U.E.F.A fined the Greek club a huge sum of 100,000 a hundred thousand EUROS, or a sum of 88,000, eighty eight thousand pounds. That also means that the club can not play either in the Champion League or for the matter The EUROPA League, formerly called the U.E.F.A cup.
The Spaniard Luis Enrique who is a few footballers to play for Barcelona as well as for Real Madrid. and is wanted by two English clubs Chelsea as well as Arsenal. But the big problem here is that Luis Enrique is demanding a yearly salary of 15, fifteen million pounds. Which is very huge indeed. You must also remember that Luis Enrique was getting a yearly salary of 13, thirteen million pounds. And arsenal have never ever paid any manager in their long history this much as yearly wages. While Arsene Wenger who has managed Arsenal for a period of 22, twenty two years , was on a yearly salary at Arsenal with eight million pounds A clear increase of seven million pounds. and this is not the only problem at Arsenal, Arsenal footballers like Danny Welbeck, Aaron Ramsey and others will not sign a new contract without Arsenal appointing a good manager. But the new manager will only have a purse of 50, fifty million pounds.

The Egyptian winger Mohammed Salah has now gone and broken another record for Liverpool in the Champion League semi final first leg , played at Anfield. He has now scored ten goals in a single year in the Champion League season. No other Liverpool payer has done this either Ian rush, or Michael Owen. But he still has the second leg match of the semi final match as well as the final match to add to his total of goals. The semi final match ended in a 5-2 win for Liverpool. But Roma have a two away goal advantage.
Both Pep Guardiola the Spaniard manager of Manchester City and the other Spaniard Luis Enrique who played and also managed Barcelona. Now the midfield master Andres Iniesta who is now33, thirty three years old and played for Barcelona as a boy. But now he has played his last game for Barcelona in Copa Del Rey. Cup. But now a club from China has come forward to give him a last chance of playing for a few more years. But both Pep Guardiola want to buy him from Barcelona and Luis Enrique wants to buy Andres Iniesta , if he is finally appointed as the manager of Arsenal. But I would like to remind you all that Arsenal will be giving the new manager at Arsenal a sum of 50, fifty million pounds for the summer transfer shopping.
Now Germany have officially made a bid to host the EURO CUP , in the year 2024. Germany had held the world cup in theyea5rs 1974 and in the year 2006.

The English right back Danny Rose , who is playing his club football in England with Tottenham Hotspurs. Manchester United were very keen to buy Danny Rose from Tottenham Hotspurs , first the price was 52, fifty two million pounds. But now Jose Mourinho is very eager to replace his two defenders Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia. This season both are doing the job of a defender, but in actual play they both are wingers by trade, but now both are thirty three years old and have lost all their famous pace. But now the buy is not going to be that easy either as Tottenham Hotspurs are demanding that Manchester United should be paying Tottenham Hotspurs 40, forty million pounds as well as giving a player as well. And the player that Tottenham Hotspurs want is Luke Shaw. After all Luke Shaw played for Mauricio Pochettino for a period of eighteen months during his time at Southampton.
John Terry the former Chelsea and England captain, who after leaving Chelsea decided to play in the second tier , instead of joining any other club in the E.P.L. As he had no desire to play against his childhood club Chelsea. Now things are looking very complicated for John Terry now as Aston Villa are fourth on the table and there is a total of four points separating Cardiff City and Aston Villa, and if Aston Villa do finally get promoted then John Terry will have the same problem playing against Chelsea next season. So he has wisely left it to e decided at the end of the season, to make his decision.
Arsenal are handed a very huge boost for the first leg of the EUROPA LEAGUE Cup In the first leg of the Europa League cup, the old U.E.F.A cup. to be played against Atletico Madrid , at the Emirate stadium. The Spanish club first was missing their Brazilian born striker Diego Costa due to a hamstring injury, and the latest news from Madrid has said that Diego Costa will definitely miss out the first leg of the Europa League Semi Finals. And now to make matters worse the right back of Atletico Madrid Juanfaran has now pickled up a hamstring injury as well and will really be unviable for the first leg of the semi final match, and the big question is will he recover in time for the second leg of the semi final match with Arsenal.
The English defender John Stones who did cost Manchester City a very huge fee of over 47, forty seven million pounds. But now John Stones has fallen down to the fourth defender for Pep Guardiola , after Vincent Kompany and the others. But now Manchester City want to not only sell John Stones but they are also hoping of recovering the money they had spent to buy him from Everton two years ago for a very huge sum of 47, forty seven million pounds. But it is going to be very difficult for Manchester City to sell him for that much money, as he is not even playing regularly , and he is on a weekly salary of 100,000 , a hundred thousand pounds, for not even on the bench. And if Manchester City sell John Stones they will have problems with the number of home grown players as well. Mind you the new Arsenal manager will only have 50, fifty million pounds to spend so he can not buy John Stones for sure.
This is the list of the ten most richest clubs in the world and their wealth is counted in EUROS and not Pounds here.And according to Deloitte . 1) Manchester United .676.3.

The Famous Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson never really did want to give the jersey number 7 , seven to the youngster David Beckham. As the jersey number seven is a jersey worn with pride at Manchester Untied and their very best players have worn it like George Best, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona. David Beckham , Cristiano Ronaldo and Antonio Valencia. When the French footballer Eric Cantona retired from football the jersey was vacant , and Sir Alex Ferguson wanted the jersey number 7 seven to go to Roy Keane, but Roy Keane was not at all interested in changing his number of his jersey ,as he was happy with the jersey number 16, sixteen.
Now who ever will be taking over as the Arsenal manager from Arsene wenger for the new season will have a very small purse to spend in the summer. Now with a few players retiring especially Per Mertesacker and with a possibility of Petr Czech also retiring as he is already 35, thirty five years old, and has made quite a few errors on the pitch. But why are Arsenal getting so stingy with their spending? Arsenal are saying both Alexander Lacazatte and Pierre Emirik Abumeyang , were both brought by Arsenal for record prices in the last two years. They also saying that the wage bill has short yup over the roof, which is true, Mesut Ozil is now getting a weekly salary of 350,000 three hundred and fifty thousand pounds, previously he got 140,000 one hundred and forty thousand pounds. Now Alexander Lacazatte, Pierre Emirik Abumaeyang , Henrik Mkhitarayan are all getting a weekly salary of 220,000 two hundred and twenty thousand pounds And if Luis Enrique joins Arsenal as the new manager, then he will be on a yearly salary of 13, thirteen million pounds . So Arsenal getting a good manager will also become slimmer. But both Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola will be spending big in the summer, each will have a purse of 200,two hundred million pounds to spend.
The Spanish giants Barcelona played Chelsea in the finals of the under 19 youth league cup. Barcelona showed the class of their famous youth academy called the LA MASIA, or THE CASTLE. The Barcelona youth players covered themselves with glory. The young Barcelona footballers were worthy winners as Barcelona came out winners with a good score of 3-0, two goals were scored by the young striker Marquez. And the third goal was scored by young Ruiz in the injury time as well.
The English F.A are now going to investigate the invasion of the pitch by the Manchester City fans, after Manchester City won the E.P.L for the year 2017/2018 season. This was the third English premier League that Manchester City won in a period of six years. But Manchester City will definitely be fined by the F.A. as the rules very clearly state that players should stay completely out of the pitch. But the Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was defending his clubs fans for invading the pitch. He said the fans were very happy and should be allowed to celebrate.
Five of the highest paid footballers in he world are as follows. 1) Lionel Messi. Barcelona.110. one hundred and ten million pounds. 2) Cristiano Ronaldo. Real Madrid.83. eighty three million pounds. 3)Neymar. P.S.G 71, seventy one million pounds 4) Gareth Bale. Real Madrid. 38.thirty eight million pounds. 5) Gerard Pique. Barcelona. 25. twenty five million pounds. What has been rather surprising is that Gerard Pique has made it into the list even though he is not a striker he is a defender.
As clubs in England are given more and more money from Television companies, and the amount of gate money has increased as well, and average footballers are being brought for crazy prices, clubs today are paying huge sums of money for a defender for example Virgil Van Dijk was got by Liverpool , but they paid seventy five million pounds for him, that is the price of a striker, Romelu Lukaku, was brought by Manchester United for 75,seventy five million pounds. Now the E.P.L clubs are paying their players a weekly salary of 48, forty eight million pounds, and that is according to Deoloitte. The highest paid footballer in England is Alexis Sanchez , with a weekly salary of 500,000 five hundred thousand pounds. Mesut Ozil is paid 300,000 three hundred thousand pounds a week.
David Dein was the person who brought Arsene wenger to Arsenal and to the ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE , and we thank you a lot for that vision you had in him. Arsene wenger changed the way football was played in England, he made it attractive to the eye with the Arsenal swift and crisp passing and sending attack after attack on the opponents goal. He won three E.P.L cups seven F.A.Cups and seven Community shields a total of 17 seventeen trophies in 22 years, still the foolish idiotic Arsenal fans wanted silverware and wanted him out. David Dein has said after Arsenal went one season undefeated and were declared THE INVINCIBLES money came to Arsenal and THE EMIRATE STADIUM was built. David Dein has made it clear that Arsene Wenger has already started getting offers to be a manager, P.S.G wanted Arsene Wenger to be their President already. But ne thing is clear Arsene Wenger will take a holiday and then decide the new club for sure as he has said he is not retiring. Arsenal will be the looser here. And still the idiots like Piers Morgan do not realize it. That Arsenal are going to have a relegation fight next year. David Dein even said that there will be no shortage of offers for Asene wenger to work as a manager again. In fact few clubs have already called to ask permission to speak to Arsene Wenger. But one thing is clear he will not take up a job in England again, as he has no desire to play a game against Arsenal.

There is no doubt that Arsenal will be having great deal of trouble next year once Arsene wenger finally does lave Arsenal next year after serving 222 twenty two years at Arsenal. Now with two players retiring and a total of nine players leaving Arsenal will have to spend really big money each year to survive, they will have to spend 400, four hundred million pounds to compete with the Oil clubs of England. We could see Arsenal in the same position as Liverpool and Manchester United , after Sir Alex Ferguson retired from Manchester United in 2013. And if Luis Enrique is joining a the Arsenal manager then Arsenal will have to pay him 13, thirteen million pounds, this was what he was paid by Barcelona. Happy spending Josh Kronke at Arsenal now.
The Egyptian winger Mohammed Salah as now won the P.F.A award for the year 2017/2018. The Liverpool winger has been on fire from the day he joined Liverpool from the Italian club A.S. Roma. he has also scored 31 goals in the E.P.L this season. The German midfielder Leroy Sane has gone and won the Young footballer of the year for the year 2017/2018. Fran Kirby who plays for Chelsea won the P.F.A award for the ladies.For the year 2017/2018. Mohammed Salah has become the first footballer from Egypt win the Professional Footfall Award.
The former Argentinean defender Mauricio Pochettino , who is now the manager of the English club Tottenham Hotspurs, he had joined Tottenham Hotspurs from the English football club Southampton. To be honest to him here , he has done a very, very good job with the young and highly talented footballers at Tottenham Hotspurs. For the past two years he has lead Tottenham hotspurs to the champion League, unfortunately they have been knocked out early in the Champion League, but who says playing in the champion league is easy? The cream of the players in Europe are there. And to make matters worse for him two years running Tottenham Hotspurs have been knocked out of the Semi finals of the oldest trophy in England THE F.A.CUP. But now he must be feeling let down by his players, and he wants to quit as manager at Tottenham Hotspurs. But in truth Tottenham hotspurs depend to heavily on Harry Kane.
In a total of 21 twenty one years at Arsenal Arsene Wenger spent a total of 700, seven hundred million pounds only on buying players, he brought 167 players for that amount of money. As usual some would be very good players and some would be average and others failures as well. Arsenal's first buy by Arsene Wenger for Arsenal in the year 1996, was the young French midfielder Nicolas Anelka, from the French club P.S.G for a very small amount of 500,000 five hundred thousand pounds. And he was sold to Real Madrid for 23 twenty three million pounds. And the last player Arsene Wenger signed up for Arsenal was Pierre Emirik Abumeyang for 56, fifty six million pounds. But the best players Arsene Wenger signed was Patrick Vieira for 3.5 three and a half million pounds from A.C. Milan Thierry Henry from Juventus 11, eleven million pounds from Juventus. Another striker got was Dennis Bergkamp from Inter Milan. I wonder what these footballers would be costing today? Another player to mention here is Jermaine Pennant, he scored a hat trick on his debut match for Arsenal. No player has done this before or after wards.
The real reason why Arsene Wenger finally stepped down as the manager of Arsenal was not the position Arsenal was on the table only but it was more deeper then what one saw at Arsenal. In the Alexis Sanchez swap deal in the January transfer window, Arsene Wenger wanted to get Anthony Martial in the swap deal , and he rightly wanted to strengthen his defence and tried hard to get Cris Smalling as well in the deal, but ten it did not work out that way, the arsenal board of Ivan Gazdis and the chief scout for Arsenal Sven Minlastat wanted Henrik Makhitaryan from Manchester United instead, the two over ruled Asene wenger in the deal here, but what you must know is that it was Sven Minlastat who brought Henrik Makhitaryan to Borussia Dortmund, when he was a scout at Borussia Dortmund. And when the Arsenal owner Sam kronke sent his young son Josh Kronke to take greater interest in the Arsenal club, when you send a young boy to look into Arsenal matters, a youngster who knows nothing of football, he knows only baseball and basketball. You are bound to have trouble. the three men in charge of Arsenal now refused to call Arsene Wenger for transfer meetings as well. Now it is no rocket science here clubs that spend big money each year , like 350 three hundred and fifty million pounds or five hundred million pounds. now the owners of Arsenal will have to spend yearly to stay in the rat race with Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea. But what is the future for Arsenal? As there are nine players to get new contracts or to be sold as well like Jack Wilshire, Danny Welbeck, David Ospina, Aaron Ramsey. And Skhodran Mustafi and Granit Zhaka are for sale. Petr Czech is 35 , thirty five years old. Now the German defender joined Arsenal from Valencia even though Arsene Wenger did not want him as he was not to the mark, and he was guilty in many games f letting goals in.The person who wanted him at Arsenal was Ivan Gazidas Arsenal next year could be easily relegated who ever the new manager is.

Italian goal keeper Gianluigi Buffon who has spent 22 , twenty two years at Juventus , after he joined from the Italian club Parma for a then record fee of 32.5 thirty two and half million pounds. And he is now 40, forty years old, and on his last years as a footballer. But such is the quality, class and skill of Gianluigi Buffon that he is wanted by a big club next year, as his Juventus contract expires in the summer. The president of the Argentinean giants BOCA JUNIORS has contacted Gianluigi Buffon , who has had talks and more will be held later on in may. The former Argentinean striker Carlos Tevez who played for a few years with Gianluigi Buffon at Juventus ad started the idea and the talks . So we could see Gianluigi Buffon playing in Beones Aires.
The Spanish giants Barcelona thrashed Seville 5-0, in the Copa Del Rey Cup final. This was Barcelona at their very best the five goals were scored by the famous Barcelona players, Luis Suarez scored two goals Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi added one each and the fifth and final goal came from a penalty scored by the Brazilian play maker Philippe Coutinho. Barcelona never allowed Seville to settle down to their game at all. This was the fifth time in a row Barcelona won the Copa del Rey cup, and it also was the 30, thirtieth Copa Del Rey cup won by mighty Barcelona. People were asking how ever can a highly talented team, please note I say a talented team and not talented individuals, could lose their champion league game in the Champion League match.
In the 21,twenty one years that Arsene Wenger was the manager at Arsenal ,he was always a shrewd manager where spending money was concerned . He brought players cheap like Nickolas Anelka for 500,000 five hundred thousand pounds , and selling him to Real Madrid for 23 twenty three million pounds. He brought Robin Van Persie from Feynoord, for 2.70 two million and seventy thousand only, but sold him at 30 thirty years to Manchester United for 24, twenty four million pounds. So in 21 twenty one years Arsene Wenger spent 700 seven hundred million pounds. But he brought 167 players with that money. As he always said we have about 500 five hundred employees at Arsenal not the footballers alone. Let us compare other clubs in four years Manchester United spent 450,four hundred and fifty million pounds. And in two years Manchester City spent 350 three hundred and fifty million pounds. While at the same time the Dutch giants Ajax have spent 450, four hundred and fifty million pounds since the year 1945, or after world war two.
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has won a total 473 matches at Arsenal, with over 8000, eight hundred games for Arsenal. Now what is surprising that Arsene Wenger has won more E.P.L matches then Mauricio Pochetttino, 103 wins. Sam Allardyce 172 games. Rafael Benitez. has won 155 games. So Arsene wenger has the bragging rights here. Now Arsenal and that idiot Piers Morgan will know how much they will miss Arsene wenger and these ungrateful wretches have forgotten that Arsene Wenger came from France to spend 22 years in England, will Arsenal survive next year is to be seen. He built the EMIRATES STADIUM , I wonder if their new manager would be able to do something like that.
Real Madrid are very desperate to keep Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid, and they do not want him to return to Manchester United in the near future. So real Madrid are planning a yearly salary of 28. twenty eight million pounds. While Neymar is getting 30 million pounds a year at P.S.G. And the highest paid footballer is Lionel Messi with a yearly salary of39.5 thirty nine and half million pounds . What is funny here is Cristiano Ronaldo is already 33, thirty three years and has a contract till the year 2021. And the buy out clause for Cristiano Ronaldo is one BILLION pounds. So why ever increase his alary in the first place.
Famous football trophies have always been wanted by robbers. The original world cup trophy called THE JULES RIMMET trophy was stolen after England won the world cup in the year 1966. But it was later found hidden a shoebox by a dog called Pickles. Brazil won the world cup for winning the world cup for the third time in the their history, in the year 1970. But the world cup was stolen and never recovered , t is said that the robbers melted the gold. And now it is reported in THE SUN, that the EUROPA LEAGUE CUP formerly called the U.E.F.A cup was stolen in Mexico , from the courier agency FEDEX. But it has been found and the cup has been returned.
When Arsene Wenger took over as the manager of Arsenal in the year 1996, Sir Alex Ferguson even taunted him by saying Arsene Who? But he soon found out for sure. The rivalry between Arsenal and Manchester United led by these two managers were great to watch, mind you this was before the Arab Oil money and the Russian oil money came to spoil football for good sadly. During the twenty two years Arsene Wenger was the manager of Arsenal this is his record. 1) Games played. 823. 2) Matches Drawn 199. 3) Matches won. 473 4) Matches Lost. 151. 5) Goals scored 1549.
Manchester United are now very keen to sell their French footballer Anthony Martial, in this summer transfer window. The club wants a sum of 60, sixty million pounds for Anthony Martial. Jose Mourinho wants to now replace the young French footballer with another young footballer, he is twenty years old and is the Brazilian striker Richarlison , who is now playing his football with the English club Watford, now Watford could sell their young Brazilian striker for a sum of 40, forty million pounds. Watford had brought Richarlison from the Brazilian football club Fulmnese for a then sum of 11, eleven million pounds.

Now that Arsene Wenger has officially be leaving Arsenal at the end of the season for greener pastures , after spending glorious 22, twenty two years at Arsenal. During that time he won a total of 17, seventeen major trophies with Arsenal. They were three English Premier League Cups, seven F.A. Cups and seven Community Shields , and there is a possibility of winning one more trophy before he finally leaves Arsenal, it is the EUROPA LEAGUE CUP, formerly called the U.E.F.A cup, they pay Atletico Madrid in the semi final. But Arsenal have now agreed to pay Arsene Wenger a sum of eleven million pounds for leaving at the end of the season, as he had a year left on his contract. Arsene Wenger will get a job soon as both Monaco and P.S.G are offering him a job for next season, but the big question is where wil Arsenal be at the end of next season in a relegation fight for sure . Arsene Wenger had managed over 800, eight hundred games for Arsenal just imagine that, today managers are sacked after a year failing to win silverware. Arsene Wenger left Arsenal in a very sound position financially as well.
Piers Morgan is the biggest idiot I have seen , he always against Arsene Wenger . This fool sure got a short memory for sure He always said that Arsine Wenger did not spend big , and he did not win trophies. But in truth Arsene Wenger won 17, seventeen trophies for Arsenal in 22, twenty two years , is not great? I would love to see how many trophies the next manager will win for Arsenal, and I would like to know how many footballers would come to Arsenal now next year with out Arsene Wenger. Players Lie Mesut Ozil, and Pierre Emirik Abumayeng joined Arsenal because of Arsene Wenger only not because of Piers Morgan. I will not be surprised if Arsenal next year are fighting a relegation battle.
There have been only four footballers to score over thirty goals in one English Premier League.1) 1) Andy Cole. 34 Goals for Newcastle United in 1994. 2) Alan shearer 31 goals for Blackburn Rovers 1994/1995. 3) Alan Shearer 34 Goals for Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United. 4) Cristiano Ronaldo. 31. Goals Manchester United. 20007/20008. 5) Luis Suarez. Liverpool 31. Goals.2012/2013. Please kindly note Mohammed Salah has only scored 30, thirty goals so fat for Liverpool this yrear.
the French manager Arsene wenger spent a total of 22, twenty two years at Arsenal, just imagine living that many years outside your own country. He came to England in 1996 as complete unknown, and Sir Alex Ferguson even asked this question ARSENE WHO? He soon found out as Arsene Wenger haunted him a few times as well. But thus is the best Arsenal Eleven ever to play under Arsene Wenger. 1) Goalkeeper. David Seamen. 2) DEFENDERS. Ashley Cole, Tony Adams Lauren. Sol Campbell. 3) Midfielders Alexis Sanchez, Robert Pires, Patrick Vieira Cesc Fabregas 4) Strikers Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry.
It was a black day where football was concerned as the French manager Arsene wenger decided to step down as the Arsenal manager at the end of the season after 22, twenty two glorious years. He has won the English Premier League title three times ,he has taken Arsenal a entire season undefeated in the year 2003/2004. He has also won 7, seven F.A cups with Arsenals most by a single manager. He spent roughly seven hundred million pounds in those years and brought roughly 170 players for Arsenal. He has spent mainly on a few footballers Like Alexander Lacazatte 52, fifty two million pounds and Pierre Emirik Abumayeng 54 fifty four million pounds. In case you are not aware Arsene Wenger has a Masters in Economic certificate. He brought players cheap and sold them for big money, for example Nikolas Anelka for 500,000 five hundred and thousand pounds fro P.S.G and sold him to Real Madrid for 23 twenty three million pounds. He also built the famous EMIRATE STADIUM , during recession and he gave a guarantee for five years to the bank that he would not leave Arsenal, during that time he got offers from Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, England and France as well. But he had to reject it. During the 22 twenty two years he was manager that Arsenal, Chelsea had 17 managers and Antonio Conte is on his way out as well. Manchester City had 13 managers Manchester United had 5 managers. It is indeed very rare for a manager of a football club to go ten years without winning a trophy and still be the manager of Arsenal Now the fun starts these Arsenal fans like Piers Morgan who wanted Arsene wenger out can bring a new manager, let us see what he can do? Let me remind you that Arsenal were last relegated in the year 1913, please do not make Arsenal a club fighting for relegation each year. Arsene wenger led Arsenal to play 20,twenty years in a row, no other manager has done so this is a EUROPEAN record. He has won 17 , seventeen titles.

The English Premier League have now gone and introduced a new award which is called THE PREMIERE LEAGUE PLAYMAKER AWARD. And this will be a award for the footballer from the E.P.L who has provided the most assists in a entire season. The E.P.L already have two awards that are given at the end f the season. 1)The Golden Boot . 2) The Golden Glove. The first award is for the most goals scored in a entire season. The second is for the goalkeeper with the most clean sheets in a season. I feel this award was long over due.
The Spanish giants Real Madrid are very keen to buy the Belgian play maker Eden hazard from Chelsea In the summer transfer window. But this deal can only go through if Real Madrid do manage to sell their Welsh winger Gareth Bale early in the summer. But it may not be so easy here as Gareth Bale has had another season with a few injuries , and he has missed a few games as well for the Spanish giants Real Madrid and has come from te bench at the champion League matches as well. Another problem that could hamper his sale could be his age as well as he is going to be 30, thirty years now.
Now Manchester United have gone and finally decided to sell their French midfielder Paul Pogba, a player they went and brought from Juventus for a then record fee of 89, eighty nine million pounds, and he was on a huge weekly salary of 290,000 two hundred and ninety thousand pounds. But now there is big trouble at Manchester United as the relationship between player and manager has hit rock bottom, and the two are not on talking terms even Now Manchester United have now gone and fixed the selling price for Paul Pogba, which is a huge 140, one hundred and forty million pounds, but the club is also willing to sell him out in the summer transfer window for 120, one hundred and twenty million pounds even. But when the amount is so very huge in honesty there will be a very few clubs that can afford the price as well as his very high weekly salary as well. So the only clubs that can afford him are P.S.G., Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona, and Manchester City. But the two Spanish giants are not so keen to buy him. The best deal could be for Manchester City to buy him, as a replacement for Yaya Toure, who s 33 thirty three years old. Here it was a clear case of two big egos clashing. But Ed Woodward is not to keen to sell Paul Pogba, and wants the problem defused soon. Let me be honest here Paul Pogba is more of a show pony then a footballer any day. With Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho not on talking terms reminds me of the David Beckham and Sir Alex Ferguson , who were also not on talking terms , after Sir Alex Ferguson kicked a football boot into David Beckhams face, and there was cut over the eye that needed stitches. The reason was that Arsenal knocked out Manchester United from the F.A.Cup that year.
There is no doubt about it that Chelsea will find that many footballers they wanted to sign up for Chelsea in the summer transfer window, would indeed slip through their finger again. And all this is due to Chelsea's policy of hiring and firing its managers far to easily I must say. . And the longer it takes for Chelsea to solve the Antonio Conte problem, the best of the cream of footballers will not be interested in a club that does not have a good manager , it is simple as that
In the year 1984, in Italy there was a rivalry between two very, very talented players one was from France and the other was from Argentina. The French striker was Michael Platinni who played for The Italian giants Juventus, also called the OLD LADY OF TURIN. the Argentinean striker was Diego Maradona, who was playing for club called Napoli, based at Naples. He joined Napoli for a small fee , and mid you they Napoli broke the bank to buy Diego Maradona from Barcelona for six million pounds. Please note Juventus was always a very strong club even then , while on the other hand Napoli was a club always fighting relegation. Both these two giants of football really lit up Italian football, at a time Italian football was in its glory days, not at all like today. But Both these highly talented footballers were so good that Juventus won the title in Italy champion league and other trophies. But then Napoli matched their attempts and trophies domestically. Michael Platini became the first footballer ever to win the Ballond'OR three years in a row. Actually Juventus,Inter Milan, A.C Milan as well as Fiorentina were all keen to buy Diego Maradona then but decided not to buy him due to the troubles he gave Barcelona. Today we see this type of rivalry between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in Spain with Barcelona and Real Madrid.
It has been declared by Atletico Madrid that their Brazilian striker Diego Costa, who suffered a hamstring injury during the quarter final match played between Sporting Lisbon, in the first leg. So it is clear that e will be missing out in this weeks match in the La Liga. So it mans Diego Costa will not recover in time for the Europa League Cup, or formerly called the U.E.F.A Cup. first semi final game. What makes it more difficult to let Diego Costa play soon, as the club doctors have not even set a date for his return from Injury, so the injury was more serious then first thought. But there is brighter hope that he could very well return from injury for the second leg of the Europa League Semi final match. But ill the damage be done by then? While on the other hand the Arsenal midfielder Henrik Mkhitarayan will be fit to play this week.
Arsenal and Arsene Wenger are least bothered with the empty stands for a few matches , the idea to boycott the matches at Arsenal was given by that idiot Piers Morgan, who was angry last year as Arsenal finished sixth in the table and missed out on the Champion League, after nineteen years in a row. As some are not aware attendance for a football match is counted by the number of tickets sold for that particular match, and seats are never ever counted. So empty seats make the slightest difference to Arsenal here. And the record books state that there were two clubs in Europe who made the most money from selling tickets only. And they were Arsenal and the Spanish giants Real Madrid. Both of them sold tickets for a huge sum of 310, three hundred and ten million pounds. Just imagine that. And mind you Real Madrid's stadium the Santiago Bernebaue , has a sitting capacity of over 84,000 eighty four thousand, and Arsenal's Emirates Stadium has a capacity of over 60,000 sixty thousand only, hope you got the picture now. By the way according to THE DAILY MAIL, tickets for Arsenal's matches are all sold out already. So I suggest Piers Morgan stays out of Arsenal altogether. The other day on his show he had the sign Wenger out, but has this idiot got a manager in mind who can last five years at Arsenal and win a trophy , and that is all I ask, Arsene Wenger has won Eight F.A. Cups will he next manager get a single F.A.Cup.

Manchester city had finished sixteenth on the table in the year 2008. It was then brought by the Sheikh Mansour, and things were never ever the same again. Then the owners splashed cash left , right and centre and brought top footballers at inflated prices and paid inflated weekly salaries as well. I do agree that Manchester City have never dropped from the top four place in the E.P.L.and they have won the title a few times and the F.A. Cup as well. But let us see the other side of the coin as well. 1) The Manchester City squad is costing 1.5 one and a half Billion pounds. 2) Manchester City made a loss of 197, one hundred and ninety seven million pounds in a single year under Roberto Mancini.It was the biggest loss by a club in English history all divisions counted. 3) Manchester City were fined 200 two hundred million pounds for breaking FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES. So they had only 22,twenty two players for their champion League , instead of 25, twenty five players, so with injury and cards they had a nightmare champion league that year. 4) They have spent huge money on useless footballers , for example Equliam Mangala, he joined for 35, thirty five million pounds, but wit a huge weekly salary as well he failed to click at Manchester City, now he is on loan and Manchester City are paying a major portion of his salary , City are loosing millions because of him. And stupid idiots Manchester City fans say that they are nt buying trophies dum fools.
Jose Mourinho is not at all happy with the Manchester United midfield pair of Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic, as he finds that the pair have not clicked together at all. Both are highly talented individuals, but not as team mates. So he now wants to add a third midfielder and has decided to sign the German midfielder Toni Kroos, from the Spanish giants Real Madrid., he says his a real pass master and would be the real good midfielder lacking at Manchester United. But getting Toni kroos from Real Madrid will not be a easy task, it will be real uphill task. But then there are few other alternatives as well like Jorginho at Napoli as well.
The Arsenal fans are for ever taunting Arsene wenger of not winning trophies at Arsenal. But at the same time I would like them to know a few truths here, and it is about Tottenham hotspurs, their arch rival. I would really like to know exactly how many trophies has Tottenham hotspurs won ? Here I am not talking of fifty or a hundred years. Here I am talking of the past twenty one years, how many trophies have Tottenham Hotspurs have won? Arsenal in those21, twenty one years have won three E.P.L titles and Eight F.A cups under Arene wenger and four community shields as well. The only trophy Tottenham hotspurs has won is a League Cup.
Arsenal have now gone and made it very clear that the club will not be spending money in buying the French striker Anthony Martial, and Manchester United will be wanting 60, sixty million pounds for him, and they brought him from Monaco for 36, thirty six million pounds. The reason Arsenal will not even think of buying him is because the club has already three strikers in Danny Welbeck, Alexander Lacazatte and Pierre Eemirik Abumayeng . Instead during the summer transfer window Arsenal will spend on two Centre defenders as Per Mertsacker retires at the end of the season And Lauren Koschelny is well into his last years and injuries have increased as well. Arsenal will be going to buy a new number one goalkeeper as the aging Petr Czech is already 35, thirty five years.
The relations between Jose Mourinho and the French midfielder Paul Pogba has now gone and hit rock bottom, with fears that the wounds between the two may never heal. Mind you Paul Pogba is the costliest footballer at Manchester United, he was costing Manchester united a bomb , costing 89, eighty nine million pounds. And he is getting a weekly salary of roughly 300,000three hundred thousand pounds. And if you keep him on the bench for two champion League matches, you are asking for trouble . And when both of them Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba , have huge ego problems , you can expect big problem s on and of the pitch as well. Now Jose Mourinho has given orders to sell Paul Pogba in the summer transfer window. So both Michael Carrick and David de Gea , two most senior players at Manchester United will talk it out with Paul Pogba and hopefully sort out his career at Manchester United.
Tuesday, April 17, 2018
The French midfielder Paul Pogba , who is playing his club football in England with Manchester United. Now Jose Mourinho has demanded that Paul Pogba be sold.. Now his agent Mino Roila has now spoken about his client to the French giants P.S.G, for his 89, eighty nine million pounds client. But let us not get to excited here as U.E.F.A last week have gone and opened investigation into P.S. G, breaking the U.E.F.A FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE, where Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are concerned. The two Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are least interested in the deal to buy the French midfielder Paul Pogba from Manchester United. And Chelsea may have a new manager next year as well.
Jean Michael Seri, the midfielder from the Ivory Coast, who is playing his club football with the French club Nice. Is now wanted by Chelsea in the summer transfer window. But Jean Michael Seri has made it very clear that he really wants to know if Antonio Conte will be remaining as manager of Chelsea , or will Chelsea who are very well known for their hiring and firing of managers, over the years. Now another hitch here is that Chelsea last offered Nice 35, thirty five million pounds to buy him. But Nice are wanting 40, forty million pounds for Jean Michael Seri. And now Barcelona are keen to sign him up as well.
Chelsea during the January transfer window had brought the French striker Olivier Giroud from Arsenal for a sum of fifteen million pounds. Chelsea could not afford to have so many strikers sitting on the bench, so they let their young Belgian striker Michi Batsuhayi to the German club Borussia Dortmund And he was really doing well in Germany until very recently he got a ankle injury and will be out for a while. But as Borussia Dortmund were not willing to pay the transfer fee in the January transfer window, to Chelsea it was a small amount over just a million odd pounds. Now Chelsea are now willing to sell their Belgian striker and want a huge sum of 50, fifty million pounds for him.
The French footballer Anthony Martial has said that he will not be signing any new contract with Manchester United, in the near future. As he is not happy with the rotation system which is used by Jose Mourinho. But now Champion league clubs are showing very big interest in him, mainly as he is young and scores goals as well. Now both these giants are very keen to sign Anthony Martial ,bot Juventus and Bayern Munich are keen to buy him. Juventus want to replace their creation striker Mario Manduzick , and Bayern Munich would like to buy Anthony Martial in case they lose their Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, to the Spanish giants Real Madrid, who are now over hauling their team. So are the other Spanish giants Barcelona are now willing to buy Anthony Martial for a sum of 60, sixty million pounds.
Jose Mourinho has now really lost patience with his French midfielder young Paul Pogba, and there is no doubt about it that the relationship between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho have really gone and hit rock bottom, and it is so bad it looks like there is no chance it can heal soon. In fact in disgust after the title was lost to arch rival Manchester City, Jose Mourinho wants to sell Paul Pogba in the summer transfer window. But the very big question I ask is whether Ed Woodward and the Manchester United club really do want to sell him in the summer transfer window. After all Paul Pogba joined Manchester United from the Italian giants Juventus , also called the OLD LADY OF TURIN. For a then record fee of 89 eighty nine million pounds, and he is getting a very huge weekly salary of 290.000, two hundred and ninety thousand pounds. The Spanish giants Real Madrid are keen to sign Paul Pogba, as the Spanish club want to overhaul the team, as Luka Modric is for sale.
Manchester City won the English Premier League title for the year 2017/2018, and they have done it with style I must say finishing with the most games to spare as well. Now winning the title became a bit costly as well. As Manchester City will now have to give three clubs a huge sums of money as well. Liverpool will get a total of one million pounds, this money is to be paid to Liverpool according to the contract of Raheem Sterling at Manchester City , Liverpool will have to be paid a million pounds in case Manchester City ever do win the English Premiere League, mind you Liverpool had to wait three years too get it. Tottenham Hotspurs are to benefit a total of one and a half million pounds in the contract of Kyle Walker, who left Tottenham Hotspurs ,last year. And the German club Schalke are to get a much smaller amount of money, as the German footballer Leroy Sane joined Manchester City from Schalke, and the German club will get a sum of 450,000 four hundred and fifty thousand pounds.

The Dutch club star young Justin Kluivert is wanted by Manchester Untied and Jose Mourinho as well. But the father of Justin Kluivert , Patrick Kluivert has advised his son to leave the Dutch giants Ajax , and move to the Spanish giants Barcelona instead. A Patrick Kluivert played for both Ajax, as well as Barcelona as well. And what could really be worrying Patrick Kluivert is seeing the promising careers of both Marcus Rushford and Anthony Martial being hampered from real progress by Jose Mourinho.
The Champions of England Manchester City could be in very hot water and could easily face a two window transfer ban. The case is being heard by the Court Of Arbitration For Sport, who are du to give their ruling in a weeks time. The case is Manchester City signing a Argentinean teenager called Benjamin Garre , who is now sixteen years old. But as he is holding a Italian passport, and F.I.F.A rules clearly say that a sixteen year old boy can be contacted and join from one European club to another European club. But in this case the club which Benjamin Garre came from was a club from South America, Argentina. But the small club in Argentina have said in the case that Manchester City approached the Argentinean club much earlier and at that time Benjamin Garre was fifteen years old, and this is breeching F.I.F.A. rules. Recently Spanish giants Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid , all faced the wrath of F.I.F.A for breaking tis rule. F.I.F.A are very strict on this rule as they want to protect the young boys and girls, from both wrongly trafficking as well as young children getting homesick in far away countries. F.I.F.A rules say that if the child is fifteen years old then the family must move to the country where the club is and the club must provide jobs for the parets , and they must live a certain distance from the club. But one thing is clear if Manchester City are banned from buying players then Liverpool and Manchester United and Chelsea will buy big players.
The former arsenal midfielder Paul Merson, has gone and warned his old club Arsenal, that if the club sack Arsene Wenger does leave Arsenal it will be a bad thing as Arsene Wenger will surely come back to haunt F.C.Arsenal. Arsene Wenger would get a job in less then five minutes, say a club like Everton would be happy to appoint Arsene Wenger as manager. But that idiotic fool Piers Morgan who only wants Arsene wenger out, does he have a manager in mind who will stay at Arsenal for five years? Arsene wenger has made it very clear that even if he leaves Arsenal, he will continue to be a manager In Europe. And believe me he will really do a good job at any club for sure. Let the haunting of Arsenal start.
Andres Iniesta the famous Spanish and Barcelona midfielder , who is now 33, thirty three years of age, and has been a graduate from the famous Barcelona youth Academy called THE LA MASIA. Or the castle. Now Andres Iniesta has been a regular player at Barcelona from the year 2000, but now age has caught on with the famous mastero and he will be moving on in the new season. It is said that he will announce the name of the club which is in China, after THE COPA DEL REY final. But the agreement with the Chinese club also includes the sale of two million wine bottles. In case you did not know it Andres Iniesta has a vineyard and the INIESTA WINES. It was started by his grandfather Jose Antonio. The vineyard is in Albacete , which is a hour long drive from Valencia, and he has red , white and sparkling wine.
The Brazilian right back who is playing his club football in France with P.S.G. Now Dani Alves has become the footballer with the most trophies won, and his long a glittering career he has now won 36, thirty six trophies. 1) Dani Alves 36, thirty six trophies with Bhaiyya Club, Seville, Barcelona, Juventus and P.S.G. 2) Ryan Giggs. Has 35,thirty five trophies with Manchester United. 3) Zlatan Ibrahimović has won 33, thirty three trophies, with Ajax, Barcelona, Inter Milan, A.C.Milan , Manchester United and P.S.G. These trophies include won only at club level and not for the country say at a world cup or a Euro Cup.
Pep Guardiola has won the English Premier League for the year 2017/2018. Let us congratulate the club. But in all that excitement let us not forget that Manchester City, and Pep Guardiola have spent a total of over 350, three hundred and fifty million pounds in a very short period of two years, and if that is not buying trophies then exactly what is it ? And what is even more disgusting is e wants to buy a few new midfielders to replace the following 1) Yaya Tore,2) Fernandinho 3) David Silva, as all three midfielders have crossed thirty and nearing the age of thirty three. All three were very talented and to replace these three will cost a few ore hundreds of million pounds. With average footballers costing fifty million pounds or more. But one thing is very crystal clear here Manchester City can and will not go a entire season undefeated like Arsenal went a entire season undefeated. And please remember that the Arsenal invincible team of 2003/2004 was costing only 45, forty five million pounds, a entire team of eleven footballers. Manchester City can never ever achieve this deed in their years in the future even. And with his crazy spending they have failed to in a single champion League, Pep Guardiola has no place to hide and run even. And do not forget that the entire squad of Manchester City is costing a whooping 1,5 one and a half BILLION pounds.

The former Manchester United manager sir Alex Ferguson and his wife Cathy were special guests for the Italian club A.S.Roma, he was invited to Italy by the club from Rome . But in truth was he there to e used as a good luck charm as the Italian club claim. Or was there another reason for Sir Alex Ferguson to be there in Rome to watch the champion league match played between A.S.Roma and Barcelona. The Italian club A.S.Roma made a great come back and also win the match on away goal. Or was Sir Alex Ferguson there in Rome to scout for the French defender Samuel Umtiti , who is a target for Manchester United.?
Now Diego Costa the Brazilian born but who is playing for Spain now. Has now been being investigated for evading paying taxes while he was in Spain and was playing for the Spanish club Atletico Madrid , in the year 2014. In the year 2014 he had made a image right with the sports company ADIDAS for a sum of 374,000 pounds r 400,000 Euros. But that year of 2014 he moved to England in the summer transfer deal and then played for Chelsea. But the tax department say that the money was deposited in Spain before Diego Costa joined Chelsea in that summer. So legally speaking he should have paid half yearly tax in Spain, which he failed to do. What is interesting here is that a lot of footballers who have Jorge Mendes as their agent have fallen prey to tax dodging. Players Like Diego Costa., Radamel falcao, Cristiano Ronaldo , Jose Mourinho are all facing the Spanish tax department with case filed against them.
Just how many footballers from all over the world can claim this very rare feet indeed of playing a total of 100, a hundred sierra A games for A.C. Milan at the tender age of 19, nineteen years only. The young 19 nineteen year old Italian goalkeeper of Italian fallen giants A.C.Milan Gianluigi Donnarumma who stands six feet six and a half inches in height. While playing for A.C. Milan verses Napoli, here he reached a milestone in his career of just a few years he played his game number hundred for A.C. Milan. Not only did he play well he kept out Napoli from scoring and winning the match late into injury time ,so the match ended in a draw 0-0. This draw now means Juventus have a three point lead for the Italian title.
First of all I would very much like to say that Jan Oblak is a very good goalkeeper, and to keep five clean sheets out of ten matches speaks volumes here. But for Diego Simone to say that he is better then David de Gea, Gianluigi Buffon, Manuel Neuer and Ederson is not at all fair. To claim that Jan Oblak the Slovenian goalkeeper has to win a major trophy something like the following I would say. Like the World Cup, THE EURO CUP, the Champion League, in fact I really doubt if Jan oblak really played for Slovenia , in a Euro Cup or a world cup for the matter. While Manuel Neuer and Gianluigi Buffon are world cup winners. I hope I have made myself clear here.
Manchester united should not consider buying Gareth Bale from the Spanish giants Real Madrid in the summer. And it is a well known fact that Real Madrid are going to overhaul their club in the next two markets. So as cash is needed very badly by Real Madrid will be selling several players like Gareth Bale, Kareem Benzema and even Isco. They are asking 88, eighty eight million pounds for the Welsh winger. Manchester United should not buy Gareth Bale on the following reason 1) Already Alexis Sanchez is a left winger, and he is getting a weekly salary of 600,000 six hundred thousand pounds. 2) Gareth Bale is a injury prone player now . 3) And the price is too high for a 29 year old footballer. But actually Manchester United must build their team on these two highly talented youngsters Anthony Martial and Marcus Rushford.
The president of Monaco has said that the club are now willing to sell their French holding midfielder Thomas Lemar, as last year Arsenal had made a bid for him in the summer transfer window, but Monaco were not at all keen to sell him, as the club had lost the cream of the players to the big clubs like Chelsea and Manchester City and P.S.G. as well. But Monaco are becoming far to greedy here as they are asking huge sum of money to buy him and it is now reached 110, one hundred and ten million pounds, far to much for a midfielder I must say. 110 , one hundred and ten million pounds you usually pay for a striker not a midfielder. Arsenal will never pay his crazy money, then the question is what will be his weekly wages then?
Anthony martial who is now very unhappy at Manchester united , and he has now completely lost his place in the Manchester United team, he has started just a total of sixteen games for Manchester United. He has lost his place at Manchester United the day Alexis Sanchez joined Manchester United from Arsenal in the January transfer window. In fact even Marcus Rushford has also lost his place at Manchester United and has come more and more from the bench this season. Anthony Martial has refused to sign up a new contract at Manchester United , and could very well be leaving Manchester United in the summer transfer window. But it is not only Arsenal that are keen to sign him up, even the Italian giants Juventus and P.S.G are keen to sign him up. But Anthony Martial prefers not to leave England and the E.P.L, so it looks Arsenal will be the winner here, he is French and Arsene Wenger always prefers French youngsters as they are less demanding at signing ew contracts ,and are not so greedy as the English youngsters who are more greedier.
The Egyptian winger Mohammed Salah now becomes the only eighth footballer ever to score thirty or more goals in English Premier League. But out of the list of eight footballers to score thirty goals only the great Alan shearer managed to score thirty goals on three different seasons. That just shows his skill and technique . 1) Alan Shearer. 2) Andy Cole. 3)Robin Van Persie. 4) Thierry Henry. 5) Mohammed Salah. 6) Kevin Philips. 7) Cristiano Ronaldo. 8) Luis Suarez.

The Egyptian winger Mohammed Salah has now gone and scored goal number 40, forty for Liverpool this season . He also has elven assists to his name , and he was costing only 36, thirty six million pounds ,when he joined Liverpool from A.S. Roma in Italy. He now also becomes the first footballer from a African country to score 40,forty goals in one season at Liverpool. Not bad at all for a footballer who was considered a flop at Chelsea. But in the English Premier League Mohammed Salah has scored 30, thirty goals so far, but in scoring a goal against Bournemouth he has now become the highest goal scorer fro a African country, he has now broken the previous record of 29, twenty nine goals scored by the Ivorian striker Didier Drogba at Chelsea in the year 2009/2010. He also becomes the first footballer in Europe's top five leagues to score thirty goals in a season. He also becomes the third Liverpool player to score thirty goals in one season after Roger Hunt, in 1961/62. And Ian rush 1983/1984.
Manchester City are very keen to buy the young French striker Kylian Mbappe , from the French club P.S.G. Now last year P.S.G made two very big deals firstly they brought the Brazilian striker Neymar from the Spanish giants Barcelona, for a new world record of 198, one hundred and ninety eight million pounds . And to avoid being caught by F.I.F.A in the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULES, P.S.G brought young Kylian Mbappe from Monaco on a years long loan deal, and they can be able to make the buy a permanent one for a huge price of 167, one hundred and sixty seven million pounds. But now that deal does not look to possible as F.I.F.A are looking into the deal of from where the money came to buy these two players. So Manchester City want to buy him then.
The Spanish giants Barcelona have now gone and broken the Spanish La Liga record I their match played against Valencia, the match ended 2-1. Now this means Barcelona have broken the previous record for a Spanish club, as it has now gone 39 games with out a single defeat. The previous record was health by the Spanish club Real Sociedad, in the year 1979/1980, with 38, thirty eight goals. The old record stood for 38, thirty eight long years.
Mrs Lucy Oliver the wife of the English referee Michael Oliver, who was the referee for the champion league quarter finals match, and he was accused of giving a red card to Gianluigi Buffon for decent, when it is a yellow card usually, and he handed Real Madrid, a penalty late into injury time the 93rd minute to be exact.He killed of the match with that soft penalty. Now the wife of Michael Oliver is called Lucy Oliver, and by profession she is a football referee in her own right. But the angry Italians have told her not to visit Italy either as a tourist or as a F.I.F.A and U.E.F.A referee , as she may have to visit Italy as a referee to referee matches for the Ladies world cup qualifiers, world cup and also the Euro Cup qualifiers as well as for the Euro Cup, as well. The Italians have made it very, very clear that they can not guarantee her safety in Italy in the future. This is not the first time a referee has been threatened, in the year 1996 Euro Cup, the Danish referee Mr Denilsen , failed to give Romania a clear goal, and he was threatened with death, and the Romanian captain Georgie Hargi told the referee not to put his feet in Romania as he could not guarantee his safety there.
I have always said that football clubs have gone completely crazy here so let us take the case of Joao Felix Sequeira , who is a eighteen year old boy from Portugal, he was first at F.C.Porto , for a period of seven years, but F.C.Porto released him as he as to skinny. He then joined Benfica, and is playing in their B team , he has not yet graduated to the top Benfica team mind you. But he is now wanted by Manchester united, Manchester City, A.C.Milan, Arsenal and even P.S.G. But now Benfica have acted swiftly and increased his buy out clause to staggering 54, fifty four million pounds. By the way Joao Felix Sequeira is a midfielder, but he has not kicked the ball for the Benfica main team and they ask 54, fifty four million pounds for a raw youngster. He reminds me of Renato Sanchez , another Benfica youngster and prodigy, was sold to Bayern Munich for 45, forty five million pounds, he was a flop in Germany and also where ever he played on loan. Manchester United escaped a bullet, as they were keen to buy Renato Sanchez, but as the club did not have a manager then, as they had just sacked Louis Van Gaal, Bayern Munich stole Renato Sanchez from under their noses.
There is no doubt about it that Harry Kane is absolutely disgusting and so is the English F.A. Now Harry Kane like a small boy crying over a toy taken by some one else. Here he is crying for one more goal to his tally for the year. Now he claimed and appealed successfully for a goal that was given to Christian Erikson. Now the worst and sad thing here is the English F.A failed to decide if Harry Kane really did get the last touch on the ball. But they have still gone and given that goal to Harry Kane , it is disgusting and shameful, very bad sporting spirit I must say. I doubt it if the English F.A would have given that goal to Mohammed Salah, if Mohammed Salah had appealed for it? Now the BIG CRY BABY Harry Kane lags behind Mohammed Salah by four goals. Who knows Harry Kane may not score another goal in this season.

During the quarter finals champion League match played between Real Madrid and Juventus. In the 93rd minute a penalty was awarded to Real Madrid. But the penalty was taken after seven long minutes, and during that time the 40, forty year old goalkeeper was shown a straight red card for decent. But was it only for decent? But it now looks it was much more then decent , as it was shown that Michael Oliver had been pushed in the ribs, and Michael Oliver thought that Gianluigi Buffon had pushed him in the ribs, but in truth it was not so, the player who pushed his hand at the ribs of Michael Oliver was Douglas Costa , who pushed his hand and soon disappeared from the place, mind you there was a crowd around the referee. So legally speaking Gianluigi Buffon should have been shown a yellow card for decent. The big question I ask will the red card now be withdrawn or not?
The Egyptian winger Mohammed Salah, who has now gone and scored a total of 39, thirty nine goals in all competitions this season 2017/2018. And he has now gone and made history in the E.P.L. As he now becomes the first footballer ever to win the footballer of the month three times in one season only. And winning it is tough to explain my self Steven Gerrard won the trophy for footballer of the month six times in his entire career.
The big question ever one is asking is was the 2017/2018 Champion League, draw for the semi final match to be now played between Liverpool and A.S.Roma It really appears that this draw was rigged through and through. As A.S.Roma were so very sure that they would be facing Liverpool in the semi finals. The reason being so very suspicious was that A.S.Roma in Rome were already selling the tickets for the semi final match first leg, long before the draw was even announced. U.E.F.A must take quick action here punish the guilty club. The big question is will A.S.Roma win the match with Liverpool with the help of the referee as well.
The former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who had managed Manchester United during their glory years at the THEATRE OF DREAMS. Now Sir Alex Ferguson who is the ambassador of Manchester United gets a yearly salary of two million pounds, and he has only to work for twenty days in a whole year. And say if he does give a talk at a seminar then he will get a um of 100, 000 a hundred thousand pounds extra for his effort. But mind you he retired as the manager of Manchester United in the year 2013.
The Spanish giants Barcelona are going to redevelop their famous stadium called the NOU CAMP, at present it has a sitting capacity of 105,000, one hundred and five thousand seats, now this stadium has a sitting capacity of 90,000 ninety thousand sitting capacity, and is the world , their arch rival Real Madrid's stadium the Santiago Bernbeau has a capacity of 84,000 eighty four thousand seats only. Now Barcelona are waiting for a clearance paper from the city council, which is due in a short time and once it comes the work on the famous stadium will begin. It will be costing Barcelona a huge sum of 600 six hundred million EUROS or 520,000 million pounds. But we must remember here that all buildings and stadiums have a life span, so it was a good idea to enlarge the stadium. As part of the stadium was crumbling here and there. But there are people who are negative always. Some clueless people are saying very wrong things like when the stadium is ready Lionel Messi will retire so why spend. So why should Barcelona spend on the new stadium But Barcelona have big plans as the new stadium will have new changing rooms, new toilets, new conference rooms, new Radio and TV. Centres , new canteen and resturants as well, and also new parking space. replaying the big loan will be a very big headache and Barcelona must find a good naming rights, and one is willing to pay 2000 million pounds a year. More seats mean a new larger roof, and this roof will collect rain water and it will be used to water the pitch. The ground around the stadium will be modified as well. The work on the stadium will start in the year 2019 and will finish on 2021.
The Welsh winger Aaron Ramsey , who is playing his club football in England with Arsenal , has now gone and become a top joint goal scorer from Arsenal. Aaron Ramsey who has played as a midfielder all his career, has now after scoring a goal against C.S.K Moscow, in the cold hostile weather of Russia, in the Europa League. Now Arron Ramsey has become the top joined goal scorer from Arsenal with the former Arsenal player and captain Cesc Fabregas, both of them now have 57, fifty seven goals each for Arsenal ,a landmark for the Welsh footballer I must say.

Now that Barcelona have been knocked out of the champion league quarter finals against A.S.Roma., now o. Now the main culprit for Barcelona losing their match was the very poor defending by their French defender Samuel Umtiti . Now reports in the Spanish press are saying that it was Manchester United who are to blame for the loss in the champion league by Barcelona. Now it is not fair to blame Manchester united for the Barcelona loss, but they did play a very big part. Now Jose Mourinho has been desperate to strengthen his defence at Manchester United, and so he has been constantly in touch with the young French defender to join up with Manchester United , and the English club are willing to pay Samuel Umtiti a weekly salary of 170,000 one hundred and seventy thousand pounds. And this figure Barcelona will not pay. So in the past four games Samuel Umtiti has been guilty of not having his mind on the pitch, and has made big mistakes as well. In fact in the match against A.S..Roma, Samuel Umtiti was guilty of both the Daniel Rossi and also the Edin Dezko goals. Now Sir Alex Ferguson was at Rome , Italy for the champion league match between Barcelona and Roma. Now what was he doing there? He is not a ambassador for A.S. Roma, so he was spying on Samuel Umtiti nayurally the old fox.
Arsenal are very keen to sign up the Spanish midfielder Saul Niguez , who is now playing his club football with the Madrid club Atletico Madrid. He is very good payers so naturally several clubs are keen to sign him up. But Arsenal could take the lead over the other clubs to sign him up on one point. As he is a Spanish footballer and is playing in Spain, and according to the employment law of Spain, he must have a buy out clause , and the buy out clause is a huge 130, one hundred and thirty million pounds, and not all clubs will be willing to pay that type of money as a buy out money.
The French giants could be facing U.E.F.A in breaking the FINANCIAL FAIR PLAY RULE. The French club P.S.G claimed that they had made 200 two hundred million pounds from Endorsements, but U.E.F.A have said that the amount was not true and honest it was in fact highly exaggerated figure. Now U.E.F.A are looking closely at the money spent for buying Neymar from Barcelona , for198, one hundred and nightie eight million pounds, as some have refereed to this as financial doping. But back I the year 2014 P.S.G were found guilty of breaking FINANCIAL FAIR play rules. And were fined 60, sixty million pounds. So if found guilty they could face a heavier fine and could be banned from playing in next years Champion League, or even get demoted to the second division as well.
Gianluigi Buffon is not the only footballer to miss out on a champion league medal after all. In fact I got you a entire team who have missed out on the champion league medal. 1) Gianluigi Buffon . Goalkeeper . 2) Defenders. Lilian Thuram., Georgios Cheilenni. Fabio Canavaro And Lothar Matthaeus. 3) Patrick Vieira. Pavel Nedved, Michael Ballack. 4) Strikers. Hernan Crespo, Zlatan Ibrahimović and Ronaldo. And for substitutes we can add these big stars as well. Dennis Bergkamp, Philip Cocu, Ruud Van Nistelrooy.
Marcel Desailly the former French and Chelsea captain before the Russian billionaire brought Chelsea. Now he has this to say about the Chelsea club and on their players as well. He has said that Chelsea should not sack their coach the Italian Antonio Conte, and instead Chelsea should sell some of their players , and some would want to leave Chelsea in the summer as Chelsea have failed to qualify for the Champion League next year. So some big stars would like to leave Chelsea for Real Madrid instead. He also said that there were two very big mistakes made by Chelsea were selling of Nemanja Matic to arch rival Manchester United. The previous year Cesc Fabregas, played well with Nemanja Matic and N"gola Kante, this year Cesc Fabregas has not been the same midfielder. And the selling of Diego Costa was a very big mistake , he would have easily scored ten goals more then Alvaro Morato.
The Madrid club Atletico Madrid are in a big battle to hang on to their French striker Antoine Greizmann, for very dear life. They have now decided to be willing to pay Antoine Greizmann a weekly salary of 300,000, three hundred thousand pounds. And a report in THE SUN, also says that the coach of Atletico Madrid , the Argentinean footballer Diego Simone, had demanded that if he did sign a new contract, only on one condition would he sign a new contract with Atletico Madrid, and that would be that Antoine Greizmann would not be going any where soon. Antoine Greizmann has now denied that he had ever spoken to Barcelona , who had said that they have kept the jersey number 7, seven at Barcelona even. But let us be practical here shall we, Atletico Madrid had been in debt to a tune of 80, eighty million pounds, but then Atletico Madrid have now gone and built a new stadium, and that would have taken at least 60 m, sixty million pounds, so sooner or later player's will have to be sold, to pay the banks . Now to pay Antoine Greizmann 300,000 three hundred thousand pounds as weekly salary then the French striker Antoine Greizmann will have to score a hat trick in each match or a hundred goals in a year, to do any justice for the money . Happy milking Antoine Greizmann.
The Spaniard Sergio Ramos who is captain of the Spanish giants Real Madrid, and he was suspended for the second leg of their Champion League quarter finals against the Italian giants Juventus. He was suspended and missed the second leg of the match with Juventus, as he had picked up his third yellow card in this years champion league that is 2017/2018. The U.E.F.A rules say clearly that if you pick a third yellow card then you will miss the next match. Now when a player is banned from playing in a particular match then he can only sit in the stands, and he can not come near the pitch, the dugout or the tunnel. But when the penalty was given and five minutes were lost before the penalty was taken, Sergio Ramos was standing at the dugout, and he even had a big argument over the penalty with the Italian manager of Juventus in the tunnel. As he has ben banned a lot of times. Now let us see for how many games will Sergio Ramos be banned.

There is no doubt about it that the standard of English refereeing is very, very poor indeed. Now in the Champion League quarter final played between Juventus and Real Madrid. The English referee Michael Oliver sent of the Italian and Juventus goal keeper Gianluigi Buffon, after giving Real Madrid a penalty , which Cristiano Ronaldo scored. But what ever the reason for sending of Gianluigi Buffon, he should have been more lenient as the penalty was given during injury time in the 93rd minute of the match. But Michael Oliver once was head-butted by Joe Hart in a E.P.L match, but the referee Michael Oliver failed to show Joe Hart either a yellow or a red card here, this just shows what a hopeless referee he really is and he is not fit to referee a quarter final match of the champion league. No wonder we all now know why England will not have a single referee or a linesmen at the world cup in Russia in the year 2018. jersey after scor9 I also ask if Cristiano Ronaldo was shown a yellow card for removing his jersey , after scoring the penalty?
