The Ronaldo return to Manchester United Story

In response to what we reported last week that Ronaldo wants to leave Real Madrid and return to Manchester United, both Mundo and AS quote Ferguson today, with Madrid based AS making this story a front page feature. Both papers quote Ferguson as saying that he would like it to happen but that it would be practically impossible to sign Ronaldo right now at the peak of his career because he would cost too much. He says possibly one of the Russian clubs could afford him but that ‘CR7’ used to complain of English winters so doubts he’d go there.

PSG want Ronaldo and Mourinho

Al Thani, owner of PSG wants to lure not only Ronaldo, but also Mourinho to Paris. Mundo say Mourinho wants to live in London from next season and coach PSG (only 2 hours by train). AS also speculate as they report on a story from the Daily Mail that Mou’s wife and daughter were in London on Friday to enrol his 16 year old daughter on a Fine Art course at Camberwell College of Arts.

Mancini knows more than Morinhou

Mundo report that Roberto Mancini’s son, Andrea, has come out ahead of the Man City v Madrid game and said that Mancini knows more about football that Mourinho.
Andrea is well known to Oldham fans after his one appearance for them in 2011. He was on loan from City at the time having been signed by his dad from Inter, where he spent 3 years having been signed up by his dad there. In total he made 0 appearances for either City or Inter and a total of 11 appearances on loan during this time. Having been released by his dad at the end of last season he failed in a trial at League 1 Bournemouth and he’s now plying his trade at Valladolid B in the fourth tier of Spanish football. By plying his trade we mean he’s on their books, though he’s not yet turned out for them!

Man City to raid players and staff from Barcelona

Staying with Man City, and following on from our video last week citing Barca’s fear of City raiding their youth setup, Mundo today report that Man City are interested in players such as Cesc Fabregas and Sergio Busquets, Raul Sanllehi from the technical staff and the newest target, Doctor Ricard Pruna from the medical staff.


  • AS – Kaka to Italy.
  • Mundo -Reina to leave Liverpool.

La Liga stars tend to leave for Premiership, Falcao is next – Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester clubs battle it out

MARCA have an article entitled ‘The English Supermarket’ today. They talk of all of the players that move from Spain to England: Football is no stranger to the economic crisis plaguing Spain and thus many players are now moving abroad, particularly to the Premiership. They cite Rafa Benitez as the first to regularly fish from the La Liga lake, catching Torres, Xabi Alonso, Reina, Luis Garcia and Morientes, with players such as Cazorla, Aguero, Silva, Mata, Yaya Toure, Owen and Coloccini taking the bait since. English clubs have transferred over €300m to La Liga in the past decade (so surely this is actually of benefit regarding the crisis?!). Players such as Fabregas and Pique also moved, for free. More recent English acquisitions have been Suso, Bellerín, Pozo and Denis Suarez.

…Then a separate article, entitled ‘Heading to the Premiership’ talks about Chelsea, Man United, Man City and Spurs all fighting to get their hands on Radamel Falcao. It quotes Falcao as saying, “One day I’d like to go to a different team in a different league, but I have 3 years left on my contract and right no the reality is Atletico Madrid”. Marca speculate whether this move may come to fruition sooner than expected: Falcao has not been selected for any Europa League games this year, adding weight to the theory he may be off in January, but Falcao himself says this is nothing to do with the possibility of him leaving, but is a ‘precaution’.

Ronaldo to leave Madrid & Guardiola to join Man City

Ronaldo to leave Madrid & Guardiola to join Man City

Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Real Madrid

Madrid biased paper AS report that Ronaldo is ‘more like to leave at end of this season than he is to renew his contract’. The reasons being:

  • He doesn’t think the club support him enough in his efforts to win various awards such as the Balon D’or and Spanish Player of the Season.
  • He doesn’t think he gets enough protection or that the club push for him to get protection as Barcelona do with Messi.
  • He feels he doesn’t receive the respect from either Madrid or La Liga that he used to get at Manchester United and in the Premiership.

The article implies he’d like a move back to the Premiership. It refers to recent interviews where CR7 has called Ferguson a ‘fantastic person’ who is ‘like a father in football’ and that he ‘really misses him’ and has a ‘great relationship with him’. He also says that the first time he put the Madrid jersey on he was happy but now three years down the line he is longing for the respect he got from both Manchester United and the Premiership.

Barcelona worried that Pep Guardiola is going to join Manchester City

His agent claims there were firm offers from Manchester City, Chelsea, AC Milan and Bayern Munich as well as enquiries from the FAs of Qatar, Chile, Brazil and ENGLAND!

Now that Begiristain is Sporting Director at City, Barcelona are afraid of Pep teaming up with him and them raiding the Barca youth set up.

City are particularly interested in Pep as part of a project to replicate the La Masia youth system in Barcelona. City are going to spend £100m on the project which will accommodate 80 in-house trainees and have the potential to train up to 400. According to AS their aim is to ‘create the Messi of the future’

AC Milan want Carvalho, Kaka and Arbiol

Milan representative has been at the Bernabeu to discuss the possible transfer of Ricardo Carvalho for €9m on a 2.5 year contract. He also enquiried about Kaka and Raul Albiol. However, Carvalho said he’d rather put family first and that they are very happy in Madrid.
