Lionel Messi is so good that he is one of few players in the world, if not the only one, who can dictate their future as a player. There has been surprisingly little speculation about the Argentinian trickster leaving his beloved Barcelona for another club in the past, probably because you cannot put a price on his talent. 

The man who has for so long, by so many, been regarded as the best footballer in the world, and possibly the best ever to have played, has now spoken of his love for the club who made him the wonderman he is today.  Continue reading Lionel Messi: I can’t imagine leaving Barcelona

Real Madrid midfielder signs for QPR

Estaban Granero has agreed to a four-year-contract with Queens Park Rangers following 60 appearances for the Spanish giants.

QPR manager Mark Hughes said: ‘He is a great player, first and foremost. You don’t play at a club like Real Madrid if you’re not.’

Hughes added: ‘He has been there from the age of nine, so this has been a huge decision for him.

He is very well regarded there and for him to leave a club of that stature to come to us shows the belief he has in what we are trying to do.

‘He has got great energy and is technically very gifted, as you would expect from a Real Madrid player.

‘He is very comfortable on the ball and is an all-round excellent midfielder, which we will benefit from.’

Granero said: ‘I’m very happy to be here. I love the passion of the English fans. Continue reading Real Madrid midfielder signs for QPR

Liverpool wants Llorente

Liverpool wants Llorente

Liverpool are after Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente, but know they have to have a deal in place to sell not wanted Andy Carroll by the close of the transfer window tomorrow night.

The Spanish striker has been frozen out by his club, and is being forced to train with the reserves since refusing to sign a new contract.

With only one year remaining on his old contract, and making it known that he wants to leave there is no way he will still be at Bilbao come Saturday.

Juventus are in need of a striker, and also Manchester City and Tottenham showing interest with only his £30 million buy-out-clause being the reason that a deal been done already.

Llorente’s teammate Javi Martinez was sold yesterday in a record breaking £32 million to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munch, which makes it look almost certain that the Basque side are ready to let Llorente go also.

My money is on a deal with Juventus, but that all depends on whether the Italinal’s sign Berbatov from Manchester United or not.

A very exciting couple of days lie ahead for the 27-year-old world-class striker who would prove to be a goal scorer for which ever club can do the deal.
