Nice to see Jose promoting youth from within.........


You mean 35 year old don't you?


35 yes. Also forgot to include his name. Cutting edge reporting.


Lucky your mate Courtney hasn't called you out on it.

Used to like Nixon. He has become super sensitive in recent times though, seems to be a cockend.

Two former Royals on the move. Hope Akpan has moved to Bradford City on a free from Burton Albion and Adam Federici has joined Stoke City on a 2 year deal from Bournemouth.

More and more talk that Ronaldo actually will leave Real Madrid this summer. Marca saying he will be gone within a week

Paulinho leaves Barca to go back to China.

Seems an odd one considering he ended up being quite a surprise success for them last season

I know Ronaldo can be a devisive character who believes he's bigger than the club and he clearly wants out but even at 33, he's twice the player Neymar is.

agree. I commented the other day with Messi departing the world cup at 31 years old you assume that was his last chance gone, but with Ronaldo going out at 33 years old you still feel like he has a shot at making it to Qatar 2022

Ronaldo to Juventus confirmed for €100m. :shock:

In other transfer news, I read yesterday that as part of his free transfer to Juventus, Emre Can enjoys a nice £14m signing-on fee. :shock: :lol:

Do wonder how Juventus are going to get this through FFP. €100m on Ronaldo, €40m each on Costa and Cancelo, and they've sold no-one for money. Perhaps one of Higuain or Mandzukic will be sold, as difficult to see they need five forwards (with Dybala and Costa too).

Good deal for Juventus, Ronaldo will be the missing key in their plight to win Serie A.
