David Moyes, the new manager of Manchester United, has a dream of reuniting on a Robin Van Persie and Cesc Fabregas. He knows that the Spanish transfer will not come cheap, but aims to bring the Barca player back to the Premier League.
As reported in the Daily Mirror Barcelona would be willing to sell Fabregas for a figure around 35 million euros. Also, Moyes believes the Spanish midfielder would be the perfect replacement to the retired Paul Scholes.
Jesús Navas has joined Manchester City. It has not been made official, however it will only be a matter of a few hours until both Sevilla and Man City confirm that the deal has been done.
Sevilla has made a agreement that is said to be worth around €20 million and then another 5,5 in extras, 3,5 million of this will be a set amount and not performance related.
Navas will be earning €2.5 million take home every season while enjoying playing for the North England club.
This extra cash should make a difference on the future of Álvaro Negredo. He seemed almost certain to go, but now a richer José María del Nido will certainly believe he can keep the Madrid-born player who has had a fantastic season scoring 25 goals in the league and 31 in total for the season, including six in the Copa del Rey.
Radamel Falcao had been deflecting reports for weeks that he would sign with free spending French Ligue 1 team AS Monaco FC. It seems, however, that the money was just too good for the Colombian striker.
Falcao signed a five year €51million deal with the team this weekend, and completed a flurry of moves made by the heavy laden pockets of Monaco club owner, Dmitry Rybolovlev. Falcao took to Twitter to express his excitement. ‘I want to share with you that I will be player of @ASMFC-MONACO next season. I’m eager to start this challenge! I count on you [sic] support!’ Continue reading Falcao snubs Chelsea, Madrid to sign with Monaco→
Match fixing has become a wide spread epidemic throughout the football world, and recorded statements from Spanish league players, managers and presidents in the First and Second Divisions show that Spanish football isn’t exempt.
“I went to play against Levante and the coach, in the pre-match team talk, told us: ‘We’re going to play, to jump, to compete and to score. If we score a goal, they will equalise, and if they score a goal against us, we will equalise. If, in the 85th minute, the scores are level, we give up and that’s it’. We both needed a draw. We finished 0-0. In the talk, he told us not to fake it the whole way through the match. It was laughable”, an anonymous First Division player told MARCA.
