Man City character recruiting Messi in January

The Etihad team wants to pay to own Lionel Messi to avoid being scammed by another club.
After failing to leave in the summer of 2020, Messi will stay in the final year of his contract with Barca. This means that from January 2021 he can negotiate with other clubs, and leave as a free form during the summer transfer window.
Many clubs are ready to meet all requirements to get Messi. Owning the world’s top star with no transfer fees is a bargain. Therefore, Man City wants to play first.

The Etihad team is ready to pay Barca about 15 million euros (equivalent to 19 million USD) to own Messi in January 2020, when the winter transfer window opens. They believe this move will persuade Barca to release, while avoiding competition from other clubs.
Omar Berrada, CEO of football division of Man City, once asserted that the club had enough financial resources to recruit Messi next year. Owning Pep Guardiola – who was very successful when coaching Messi at Barca – is considered a factor that helps them have an advantage in this race.

PSG is considered a formidable opponent to Man City, both financially and physically. The French champion owns Neymar – a close friend of Messi. Juventus, Chelsea and Man Utd could also jump into the dispute.

Ronaldo faced legal trouble when he gathered the national team

Ronaldo has just experienced a goalless draw with his neighbor Spain. This was just a friendly match before Portugal entered an important confrontation with France in the Nations League. Having just gathered with the national football team for a few days, CR7 had to admit that he was in danger of being fined.

Specifically, Ronaldo may have to receive a penalty from the medical agency in the city of Turin, Italy. The reason is that he skipped the waiting stage for the Covid -19 test result from the Piemonte regional medical agency (Northern Italy) to be recruited.

According to the order of the medical authority, Ronaldo and the whole team had to quarantine from October 3 because there were 2 members (unnamed) with Covid -19. The entire Juventus team will have to perform tests and wait for the results before leaving the club to join the team. However, the 35-year-old star ignored this ban and casually left the Juve headquarters. With Ronaldo, many other national players such as Dybala (Argentina), Juan Cuadrado (Colombia) or Bentancur (Uruguay).

The problem here, not to mention there are signs of infection, but Ronaldo and the aforementioned stars did not wait for the test results but voluntarily left the headquarters of Juventus.

Many other Juve names such as Bonucci, Chiellini (Italy), Ramsey (Wales), Rabiot (France) or Szczesny (Poland) have waited for a negative test result before returning to the team.

Back in the Portuguese journey, after a goalless draw in a friendly match with Spain, Ronaldo and his team mates will enter two Nations League group stage matches against France (October 12) and Sweden. (October 15).

Ancelotti turned Everton into a ‘machine of victory’

The record of 4 matches winning all 4 in the Premier League to top the current ranking of Everton also repeat the historic achievements of the 1969 – 1970 season. That season, after winning 4 matches, this Merseyside team. was crowned champion of the highest tournament in the land of fog. From there the fans have the right to hope Everton this season will be a challenge for city rivals Liverpool in the goal of defending the championship.
And the live fire test will be the Merseyside derby at 18:30 on October 17, when Everton host Liverpool at Goodison Park. Everton now has enough confidence and time to prepare for an overthrow of Liverpool’s dominance after years of being in the shadow of this rivalry.

Under the guidance of veteran coach Carlo Ancelotti, who has just celebrated his 100th Premier League match and won 60 wins, Everton has been likened to a “winning machine”. When he came to lead Everton, a mid-range club in the Premier League, coach Carlo Ancelotti promised to bring this club back to historical stature. Although very few people believe, but less than a year the Italian strategist has completely changed Everton, turning potential players like Dominic Calvert-Lewin or Tom Davies into promising stars. Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored a total of 14 Premier League goals, of which 13 have been scored after just one touch.

However, the most special mark of Mr. Ancelotti is bringing and reviving midfielder James Rodriguez. From a failed Real contract, the Italian strategist in a short time turned the disgraced star of the Spanish Royal team back to himself as he was six years ago when shining in the World Cup 2014. James Rodriguez currently scores 3 goals, has 3 assists to create goals in just 5 matches for Everton in all competitions. He, along with Yerry Mina, Allan, Richarlison, Abdoulaye Doucoure not only turned Everton into a solid “fortress” in defense, but also sharp and generous in attack.
Since the beginning of the season, Everton has played very effectively both manually and manually, scoring 24 goals, conceding only 8 goals (the difference in the Premier League is 12/5). The number of goals lost should be lower if the remaining link was England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford playing safer. Although it is too early to put Everton on the list of champions, but with the current performance showing that they are worthy, in the middle of the potential candidate, Man.City, is declining, after 3 games only 4 points .

Man City and Chelsea are two of the low defensive clubs

After easily ‘raising the white flag’ in the race to win the Premier League season 2019/20. Manchester City is determined to reclaim the throne from Liverpool. However, the fire of their determination was soon poured out in cold water in the last match against Leicester City. Pep Guardiola’s teachers and students were crushed with a score of 2-5 at Etihad.

Notably, this match The Citizens suffered up to 3 penalties. So up to the present time, the number of goals lost by the half-green Manchester team is 6. They together with Chelsea are in the group of clubs with the worst defense in the Premier League football.

City’s third-line stars are disappointing their fans, and former player Micah Richards is no exception: “If you’re going to pay £ 50m per defender, you have to defend better. But for me, Man City defenders are only reacting to situations, not proactively. They are all thinking about moving forward rather than keeping their positions. “

Arturo Vidal officially joins Inter Milan

The Barca club leaders want to cut Vidal’s huge salary from their salary fund by accepting the Chilean player to leave the Nou Camp for a symbolic fee of 1 million euros. Vidal took a flight to Italy to complete this transfer and officially returned to the Serie A playing field after five years from the date of moving from Juventus to Bayern Munich.

The news was also revealed yesterday by Italian sports journalist Fabrizio Romano: “Arturo Vidal to Inter, we welcome him together! Tomorrow he will fly to Milano. General agreement is reached with Barca. worth 1 million euros “.

Vidal’s departure is part of a major overhaul at Barca, the team that previously lost Ivan Rakitic – a player who switched to former side Sevilla on a free transfer earlier this summer.

New manager Ronald Koeman is making sweeping changes at the club after a horrifying 2-8 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich in August. After Rakitic and Vidal, Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez will likely leave, when Juventus and Atletico Madrid are competing fiercely.

Premier League 2020/2021: Return of the Big Six

The Premier League kicked off on September 12. The Premier League this year has become worth the wait because of many promising returns from the Big Six giants group.

After more than a month of rest, the Premier League 2020/2021 season has officially returned this weekend (September 12). Although spending a shorter summer compared to every year, most English Premier League teams have had a certain preparation, especially the 6 names that people often call the Big Six.
Last season, the 6 strongest teams in the Premier League were in different positions on the final standings. It was a season that Arsenal, Tottenham or partly Man Utd let less famous opponents like Leicester, Wolves or Sheffield dominate most of the season.
However, with the performance in the final phase of the season, the active pre-season momentum can be believed that the Big Six will regain its position in the Premier League 2020/2021.

The position of Liverpool and Man City

Only Liverpool and Man City are two rare names in the Big Six group that have kept stable in many recent seasons. The best evidence is the succession of these two teams. Besides, there are own achievements such as Liverpool’s Champions League 2018/2019 championship or a series of domestic titles (League Cup, FA Cup) of Man City.

Liverpool still retains the squad that helped them win the championship last season. That is also the reason why The Kop has not had any “blockbuster” so far. As for Man City, the farewell words of David Silva and Leroy Sane have been filled with the name Ferran Torres. Manchester’s blue half also promptly reinforced the defense with the name Nathan Ake from Bournemouth.

The potential of the remaining 4 teams in the Big Six

Of the remaining 4 teams in the Big Six, only Man Utd and Chelsea finished in the top 4. Arsenal and Tottenham brought great disappointment with only finishing sixth and eighth. Arsenal can only take the “last train” to the Europa League through the English Super Cup championship. And Tottenham, this team must start the Europa League journey from the second qualifying round.

In addition to the stories of the final position after the 2019/2020 season ends, this group’s performance is something worth discussing. With Man Utd and Chelsea, despite finishing in the top 4 with a Champions League ticket, these two teams mostly let Leicester and Sheffield dominate most of the season. Leicester and Sheffield only began to decline after the Covid-19 raging.

Similar to Arsenal and Tottenham, these two teams last season were not as appreciated as …. Wolverhampton – the team finished seventh in the final, along the journey to the quarter-finals of Europa League. Obviously with his reputation, it is unacceptable to the remaining big guys in the Big Six.
But next season is another story. Chelsea with quality additions last summer has shown somewhat signs of a return. Even this big man is considered a name that can break Liverpool and Man City‘s code.
With MU, although the team has a modest addition in the past summer, with the existing staff and the sprinting screen to finish third at the end of last season, the Red Devils are gradually regaining their position.

The war of golden generations

With France – the defending World Cup champion, Croatia – the World Cup runner-up and Portugal – the defending UEFA Nations League champion, this is the table of the strongest teams in the world at the moment.

Before joining, the French team received bad news when two star midfielders Paul Pogba and Tanguy Ndombele were positive for the corona virus.
In addition, there are many stars who have been injured or were allowed to leave because of the recent Champions League progress such as Kingsley Coman, Blaise Matuidi, Corentin Tolisso, Benjamin Pavard, Aymeric Laporte …, France lost nearly a dozen stars when stepping. to the UEFA Nations League.
Despite that, 23 names in the hands of coach Didier Deschamps are still valued at more than 900 million euros and is one of the two most expensive teams in Europe at the moment (along with England). A figure shows the affluence of French football at present.
And one of the football backgrounds that can be compared to France in terms of the number of stars right now is Portugal. When Cristiano Ronaldo is still useful, his juniors are starting to show the potential to replace seniors in the race of the world’s most expensive superstars.
Accordingly, in terms of value in the transfer market, Portugal now has three players with a higher valuation than Ronaldo – who is only valued at 60 million euros by Transfermarkt because he has passed the age of 35. That is Bruno Fernandes (70 million), Bernardo Silva (80 million) and Joao Felix (81 million).
Not to mention Portugal also has Ruben Neves (50 million), Nelseon Semedo (40 million), Ruben Dias (35 million) … Even Trincao – the 20-year-old player was called for the first time – is also a throne. Promising stars, after being bought by Barca for 31 million euros.

With Croatia, their peak period has passed in the 2018 World Cup, when the pillars such as Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic, Ivan Perisic, Domagoj Vida, Dejan Lovren … are now over 30. At this summon Coach Zlatko Dalic did not call Modric and Rakitic to facilitate both preparations with the club ahead of the new season.
But it is not possible to under estimate Croatia. In fact, Croatian stars tend to “bloom late” at the age of 26-27. Therefore, the young players in the hands of coach Dalic at this time, such as Josip Brekalo, Nikola Vlasic, Mario Palasic … though not so prominent, still have potential.
With Sweden, they are also experiencing a “drought” star when in the team at this time only Victor Lindelof is a name known to a large number of fans. The remaining pillars such as Robin Olsen, Sebastian Larsson, Albin Ekdan, Emil Forsberg, and Marcus Berg are almost exclusively attached to the average club.
But in the hands of coach Janne Andersson, such an ordinary team has been making headlines for the past two years. In the 2018 World Cup, Sweden played impressively to reach the quarter finals.
To the UEFA Nations League, they topped the group B group stage and then won tickets to Group A this season. In the Euro 2020 qualifiers, they also easily overcome in a group with many strong opponents.
At the team level, Sweden’s defensive counter-attacking style is hailed as “the most scientific tactic in the world“. With that play, they are ready to make it difficult for every giant team. And France will face this when they meet Sweden in the first round.

How will Man City pay Messi’s benefits?

Despite age and Covid-19 affecting the overall financial situation, Lionel Messi’s income will still increase if he moves from Barca to Man City this summer.

The strangest thing regarding the best player- Messi- in football history, who has scored more than 630 goals, won 33 club titles and six Golden Balls, is that he can still leave freely. Messi did not go to Barca’s Covid-19 test, an obligation to fulfill every player who wants to play in La Liga next season. The Argentine striker believes that a term in his contract with Barca allows him to leave the club automatically without any transfer fees.
But even when leaving Barca freely, the financial burden on Man City or any team that wants to own Messi will not decrease. Messi is receiving a weekly salary after tax of about $ 667,000 in Barca, but is not sure to maintain that number in the new team. Because of Covid-19’s influence, Sheffield Hallam University’s Dr Robert Wilson believes that no team is willing to pay that salary to a player, even taking into account marginal trade and potential. advertisement. “I do not think any team can afford to pay a large sum for Messi right now,” Wilson told Sport Mail (UK). “I have not seen a move of genuine interest from the clubs, especially in the Premier League, in the current context. They are all cautious. Besides money, the teams must also take into account the impact of this. This deal comes to society. All are trying to act with greater social responsibility. “
According to Wilson, if Man City spends a huge amount of money on Messi without careful calculation, the labor unions will fight them. “The maximum salary that a club can pay Messi now is $ 400,000 a week,” he said. That is, Messi’s salary must definitely decrease significantly compared to his time at Barca.
Man City cannot pay high salaries, but Messi’s annual gross income will certainly be better. This depends on the reality of the automatic release clause that Messi signed with Barca. Camp Nou team believes that the term has expired on June 10. But Messi’s lawyers cite the plague to assert that the 2019-2020 season actually ends on August 14, and the time when Messi faxes the request to leave is appropriate to trigger this provision.

However, one amount of money that Messi will not benefit from is the sale of the jersey. Specifically, Messi’s No. 10 shirt is the most sought after in the football world. PUMA is sponsoring jerseys for Man City, with a value of approximately $ 87 million per year. According to Wilson, the sportswear company spends that much money to produce the club’s jersey and sell it. Profits flow directly into their pockets, which Man City does not enjoy. “Maybe there will be a clause: If the team sells this million jerseys thanks to Messi, Messi will get a commission,” said Wilson. “But these terms are very rare in top clubs. I don’t think Messi will get this extra.”
However, Taylor said that if shirt sales soar, PUMA will have to actively share shares with Man City and Messi, because this shows their ambition to cooperate in the next contract, creating money. deals with the sportswear company to negotiate the next shirt sponsorship deal with Man City, amid stiff competition with Nike and Adidas.
In general, experts agree that this is not a single transfer, when Man City bought Messi to play football. This is a “transfer package” that incorporates many benefits that need to be carefully calculated, because Messi has long passed the limit of football players. England is a global icon.

The special record of German football in the Champions League this year

This trio of coaches have just “set foot on a new land”, before that they have never reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. In addition, coach Flick could set a new record if Bayern Munich won the semi-final against Lyon: no coach has ever won seven consecutive Champions League victories for the first time. Since taking the position of head coach at Bayern Munich instead of Niko Kovac, Flick helped Bayern Munich to win 3 matches in the second leg of the Champions League group stage before winning Chelsea 2 times and returning (3-0 and 4-1) and then pressed beat Barcelona 8-2 in the quarterfinals.
The flick also helped Bayern Munich win the Bundesliga championship with the German Cup and hope to have another treble.

It was also the last time two Bundesliga teams participated in the semi-finals of Europe’s most prestigious tournament.

Dean Henderson still has to leave Man United next season

Last season, David De Gea unexpectedly became one of the most criticized names at Old Trafford. In fact, the Spanish goalkeeper still has many miraculous reflexes and helps the Reds avoid visible goals, but De Gea’s certainty has disappeared when he made a series of blunders. .
By contrast, another Manchester United goalkeeper, Dean Henderson, has just gone through a booming season for Sheffield United on loan. The fact that The Blades only conceded 39 goals has partly proved the class of the British star. And of course, there were many fans calling for coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to let Henderson become the number one choice in the wooden frame instead of De Gea next season.
