Replace the Eiffel Tower With My Statue!

Zlatan Ibrahivomic is one of my favorite soccer players.

Although he is 34 (which is pretty old for a soccer player), he always seems to get better and better every year. Also, his confidence is what I like most about him. He may seem cocky at times, but he is not afraid to say what he thinks and it's not just talk. He constantly proves himself on the field.
For Zlatan, his contract with Paris Saint-German ends after this season. There has been a lot of speculation where his next destination might be. A number of clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester United, and his current team, PSG, is showing interest in signing Zlatan. But for Zlatan himself, he is most likely leaving PSG to find himself a new club after the season is over.

But he said there is one way PSG could hold onto him.

"I will stay at PSG if they replace the Eiffel Tower with my statue."

Bold statement.

PSG fans, I think it's time to say goodbye to your best striker.

I really hope he comes to Chelsea. He needs to teach Diego Costa a lesson!

What's with the Chinese football league?
There's something strange happening in the football world right now. Even with all the money and appeal that the world's top leagues bring - the EPL, La Liga, Germany's Bundesliga, France's Ligue 1 and Italy's Serie A, some top players have recently departed their clubs and gone to accept enormous contracts in the Chinese Super League. The latest star to make the move is Chelsea's Ramires, a player at the peak of his career at age 28. I'm stunned. There is a history of great players making the move to China, but in the past it has been players at the very tail end of their careers moving across the world to make huge amounts of money before they retire. Think Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka, who in recent years went to Shanghai to play. And I understand the appeal for an aging player. Someone like Drogba couldn't keep up with the pace of the top European leagues anymore, but could still be a huge star in China, where the league quality is extremely low. They are major marketing moves for the Chinese teams too, who can bring in world superstars to boost their image. But recently, the players making the move have not been aging stars. They are players in the prime of their careers, like Chelsea's Ramires. Other players to recently make the move are Roma's Gervinho (formerly of Arsenal), who is just 28 years old and Colombia and Inter Milan's Freddy Guarin, a young midfielder of enormous quality and potential. He has been on the radar of the top EPL clubs for years, and to see him turn them down in exchange for a move to the low-level China league is shocking. Alessandro Diamanti, Momo Sissokho, Demba Ba and Paulinho are other players who have recently moved from their European clubs to play in China under huge contracts. It's a bizarre phenomenon. Football in China is not known to be a very popular sport, but the Chinese owners have loads of money and are doing a good job convincing top players to come and join them. I'm sad to see exciting players like Ramires and Gervinho leave Europe, where I could watch them in the Champions League, but I'm fascinated to see what they will make of themselves in China, and to follow along to see if the Chinese league continues to pry away great talent from Europe. @InPlainSight @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @MarcusJiles @DerekGumtow @havic @yaakattackk @bnzatton @SherzTYCi @krishntejanand @addri @mishthi @andwas @NimishMathur @Sydsocquet @starli @kyleatekwana @BenjiPhilip @Eduardo14 @AshfakEjaaz @EmanueleYagoda @Bobs What do you make of this recent trend?
Champions League fixtures released!
The fixtures for the Last 16 of the Champions League have been released! Here are the highlight match ups. PSG - Chelsea Two teams that have met lots of times in the Champions League in recent years. Chelsea will be fighting hard in the league and may be low on energy. PSG will have already wrapped up their Ligue 1 title and will be able to focus on progressing. The pick: PSG. Arsenal vs. Barcelona Arsenal earn the toughest draw of all, playing against the near-perfect team that is Barcelona. It's going to be very difficult for them to beat Barcelona on a home-home aggregate. I don't see them pulling it off. The pick: Barcelona. Juventus vs. Bayern Munich This is the real gem of the Round of 16 match ups. Juventus pay the price for failing to finish first in their group and have to play Bayern, while Bayern get the toughest of the second-place teams in Juventus, who were finalists last year. The pick: Bayern. Gent vs. Wolfsburg I love it when two of the lower teams are matched up against one another, as it guarantees that we'll see one of these teams in the Last 8. Gent are a real miracle story after beating Valencia to the last 16 in the group, but I'm not sure they can beat Wolfsburg, who are playing well in Germany and in Europe. The pick: Wolfsburg. The other matches in the Round of 16 include: Real Madrid vs. Roma Benfica vs. Zenit PSV vs. Atlético Madrid Dynamo Kiev vs. Manchester City But the ones I've outlined above are the real standouts. Those are the matches to look forward to. The Round of 16 will be played on February 16, 17, 23, 24, and March 8, 9, 15, and 16. We've got a long time until then and form could easily change - I'll revisit these predictions when the time gets closer! Are you looking forward to the matches? @InPlainSight @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @MarcusJiles @DerekGumtow @havic @yaakattackk @bnzatton @SherzTYCi @krishntejanand @addri @mishthi @andwas @NimishMathur @Sydsocquet @starli @kyleatekwana @BenjiPhilip @Eduardo14 @AshfakEjaaz @EmanueleYagoda
Real & “chiến dịch 300 triệu bảng”: Dàn SAO Ngoại hạng Anh về với Zidane?
Báo giới tại Madrid cho biết Real Madrid sẽ dự trù 300 triệu bảng kinh phí để tậu dàn ngôi sao Ngoại hạng Anh mùa sau. Tờ Marca mới đây đã đăng tải bài viết cho hay Real Madrid mặc dù không chiêu mộ được Paul Pogba trong mùa hè 2019 nhưng đã sẵn sàng để trở lại với thương vụ này vào năm sau. Và họ thậm chí sẽ không mua chỉ Pogba, mà cả một số cầu thủ Ngoại hạng Anh khác. Nguồn tin cho biết HLV Zinedine Zidane mặc dù vừa có một mùa hè mua sắm đắt đỏ nhưng vẫn chưa có được đội hình ưng ý, khiến ông bị mất điểm trong mắt chủ tịch Florentino Perez do đã được giao toàn quyền chuyển nhượng khi trở về dẫn dắt CLB. Tuy nhiên cách đọc kèo châu âu Zidane và giám đốc thể thao Jose Angel Sanchez đã đạt được sự nhất trí quan điểm với nhau, mà Sanchez lại là “cánh tay phải” của ông chủ tịch. Cả hai đồng tình rằng Real Madrid cần ít nhất một mùa hè mua sắm rầm rộ nữa để tạo nên một bộ khung hùng hậu, để những mùa giải tiếp theo họ sẽ không phải mua cầu thủ với số lượng lớn. Sự thống nhất quan điểm này đã khiến chủ tịch Perez cũng đồng ý theo để lên kế hoạch tuyển quân cho năm sau. Mục tiêu số 1 mà Zidane muốn vẫn là Pogba, và cơ hội của Real năm sau có thể sẽ rất cao do khi đó Pogba sẽ chỉ còn 1 năm hợp đồng với MU và đã phát đi tín hiệu rằng anh sẽ không gia hạn. Nhưng ngoài Pogba, Zidane còn muốn có hai cầu thủ nữa: N’Golo Kante của Chelsea và Christian Eriksen của Tottenham. Zidane muốn có Kante để Real không những có một cầu thủ cạnh tranh vị trí của Casemiro mà còn sở hữu một cầu thủ chơi bao quát sân, hoạt động box-to-box để hàng công Real có một mũi nhọn ở tuyến hai. Kante ban đầu được xem là một tiền vệ đánh chặn nhưng phong độ của anh trong vai trò tiền vệ bao sân cho HLV Maurizio Sarri ở Chelsea đã khiến sự đa năng của anh được đánh giá cao. Marca cho biết Real Madrid có thể sẽ dành vào khoảng 100-120 triệu bảng cho thương vụ mua Kante. Rất khó để Chelsea được thuyết phục bán Kante bởi hợp đồng giữa hai bên đến năm 2023 mới hết, chưa kể Real sẽ phải nghiên cứu khả năng thương vụ đổ bể do lệnh cấm chuyển nhượng của FIFA dành cho Chelsea. Nhưng người thứ hai, Eriksen cá độ bóng đá trực tuyến , có thể sẽ dễ hơn cho đội bóng Hoàng gia. Tiền vệ người Đan Mạch đã rục rịch muốn rời Tottenham mùa hè qua nhưng không thành, và anh có vẻ sẽ không gia hạn với Spurs khi hợp đồng sắp hết hạn vào tháng 6/2020. Nếu Eriksen muốn đến Real thì việc của “Los Blancos” chỉ là chìa ra một hợp đồng hậu hĩnh vào tháng 1/2020 tới, thời điểm Eriksen bắt đầu được đàm phán với một CLB mới theo luật Bosman. Eriksen có thể sẽ không tốn của Real xu nào, nhưng với vụ Kante và Pogba thì Real sẽ phải chuẩn bị một số tiền vào khoảng 300 triệu bảng để thanh toán. Theo Marca, Zidane coi việc mua 3 tiền vệ hàng đầu này sẽ là bước cuối hoàn thiện đội hình Real để cạnh tranh trong nước với Barca & Atletico Madrid, và chủ tịch Perez cũng sẽ chỉ cho Zizou mua sắm “thả cửa” nốt lần này.
Mercado - Los 10 clubes que más han gastado hasta la fecha
Aún restan varias semanas para que cierre el mercado de fichajes. Sin embargo, esto no ha impedido que algunos de los clubes más importantes del planeta fútbol ya hayan cerrado una serie de incorporaciones de nivel. Así, aunque afectados por la crisis mundial, estos clubes no han escatimado en gastos para lograr nuevos fichajes. Surge ahora una duda a este respecto: De las principales ligas europeas (Inglaterra, España, Alemania, Italia, Francia, Portugal) ¿Cuáles son los conjuntos que más han invertido desde la apertura del mercado de fichajes? Como era de esperar, el AS Mónaco encabeza esta clasificación en la que también encontramos dos clubes españoles como Real Madrid y FC Barcelona. Los 10 clubes que más han gastado en lo que llevamos de mercado: 1- Mónaco (Ligue 1) con 144 M€ gastados (Falcao 60 M€, James Rodriguez 45 M€, Moutinho 25 M€, Toulalan 5 M€, Martial 5 M€, Isimat-Mirin 4 M€). 2 – Manchester City (Premier League) con 118 M€ gastados (Fernandinho 40 M€, Jovetic 30 M€, Negredo 28 M€, Jesús Navas 20 M€) 3 – PSG (Ligue 1) con 110,9 M€ gastados (Cavani 64,5 M€, Marquinhos 31,4 M€, Digne 15 M€) 4 – Real Madrid (Liga) con 72,5 M€ gastados (Illarramendi 33 M€, Isco 27 M€, Carvajal 6,5 M€, Casemiro 6 M€) 5 - FC Barcelona (Liga) con 57 M€ gastados (Neymar 57 M€) 6 – Bayern Múnich (Bundesliga) con 57 M€ gastados (Götze 37 M€, Thiago Alcantara 20 M€) 7 – Borussia Dortmund (Bundesliga) con 50 M€ gastados (Mkhitaryan 27,5 M€, Aubameyang 13 M€, Sokratis 9,5 M€) 8 – Roma (Serie A) con 49,89 M€ gastados (Strootman 20 M€, Benatia 13,5 M€, Jedjav 5 M€, Destro 4,5 M€, Verre 2,5 M€, Caprari 2 M€, Piscitella 1,5 M€, Skorupski 890 000 €) 9 – Nápoles (Serie A) con 42,95 M€ gastados (Raúl Albiol 12 M€, Callejón 10 M€, Mertens 9,7 M€, Rafael 5 M€, Armero 4 M€, Calaio 1,25 M€, Radosevic 1 M€) 10 – Chelsea (Premier League) con 31,4 M€ gastados (Schürrle 22 M€, Van Ginkel 9,4 M€)
Why Men Can't Buy the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team Jerseys
It is official. It is irrefutable. The U.S. women's national soccer team is the best in the world. So it would be natural for Americans, I mean all Americans, to support their women's national team by wearing their jerseys right? And that's especially true in the world of soccer, because soccer is all about pageantry. What you wear is critical to show true support for your team. And Nike, which is the official sponsor of both the Men's and Women's national soccer team, took in pre-orders just prior to the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. But shortly after the pre-orders were sold out, Nike had to cancel all the orders. Why? The answer lies behind the two stars you see above the crest. These stars represent the number of World Cups that the U.S. women's national team has won (1991, 1995). Now after winning the 2015 World Cup, another star was added to their jerseys. But of course, the men's national soccer team does not have any stars above the crest, because well... they haven't won a World Cup yet. So, Nike decided to cancel the orders for the men's version of the women's national soccer team jerseys because it could give the false impression that the men's team have won those World Cups. What is this nonsense? What should the men and boys, who made up 61% of the 13.5 million viewers that tuned in for the 2011 World Cup finals do? It is such a shame that we still face gender inequality issues and it extends beyond the field. It even applies to fans and their freedom and passion to support their own team. A male fan should be able to wear an Alex Morgan uniform or Abby Wambach's uniform. And who cares if the women's national team won three World Cups and the men's national team hasn't won any? In the end, playing like a girl means you're a badass. What do my sports fans think about this issue?

Champions League Review
With half of Match Day 6 in the books for the UEFA Champions League, half of the groups have been decided. Here's how it all went down on Tuesday. Group A - Real Madrid, Paris SG advance This group was never really in doubt, as it seemed a formality that big boys Madrid and PSG would advance ahead of Sweden's Malmo and pesky Shakhtar from Ukraine. Madrid finished the group in fine style with an 8-0 victory over the Swedes thanks to hat tricks by Ronaldo AND Benzema, while PSG beat Shakhtar 2-0. Group B - Wolfsburg, PSV Eindhoven advance Group B brought a true shock, as Wolfsburg beat United 2-1 to advance alongside the Dutch side PSV and send United packing. The Red Devils never really put in a complete performance in the Champions League and they paid the ultimate price, as they now enter the Euro League having finished third in the group ahead of CSKA Moscow. It's a huge disappointment for Louis van Gaal but you have to take your hat off to the Germans and PSV who fought hard and deserved to advance. Group C - Atlético Madrid, Benfica advance Atlético Madrid are one of the most consistent sides in Europe and they showed it in the group stages, losing just one match of six and finishing top in their group. They beat Benfica 2-1 today to earn the top spot. They are always a fun team to watch and I'm happy to see them advance. Galatasary finish third to enter the Euro League while Astana from Kazakhstan's dream ends here. Group D - Man City, Juventus advance Again, no real surprise here as both of these teams were heavily favored over Sevilla and Monchengladbach. City wrapped up the top spot in the group today with a 4-2 win over the German side thanks to two goals from Raheem Sterling, while Juventus lost 1-0 to Sevilla to finish second. The Italians will be disappointed to let the top spot slip away as they will not have a more difficult first round in the knockout stage, but they have only themselves to blame. What's the biggest surprise to you? Did you watch any of the matches?
Champions League Preview: Real Madrid vs. PSG
The Champions League is back! Today's matches are highlighted by a great showdown between La Liga's Real Madrid and Ligue 1's Paris St. Germain. The teams are tied atop the Group A table with 7 points and both teams look likely to move on to the knockout rounds when it's all said and done. That said, they are fighting for the vital top spot which will decide who they play in the first knockout stage. They may both move on, but this is a hugely important match. With the match taking place at the Santiago de Bernabeu in Madrid, Los Blancos surely have the advantage. Many would consider them the better team anyway, but with the added advantage of a home crowd, Madrid are certainly hopeful. They are boosted by the return of goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who has played great this season in his first as Madrid's #1 keeper, plus midfielder James Rodriguez and defender Sergio Ramos. However, they will be without normal starters Gareth Bale, Álvaro Arbeloa, and Karim Benzema. Cristiano Ronaldo will lead the lines for Los Madridistas as they look to take an advantage into the final dates of the Group Stages. For PSG, the main storyline is the return of winger Ángel di Maria to Madrid, where he spent several years growing and developing his game to the highest level. Di Maria left Madrid two seasons ago to join Manchester United, where he flopped famously. He moved on to Paris this summer and has looked great in the early stages and will surely want to prove to Madrid that they were wrong to sell him. David Luiz looks set to return after a few matches out for PSG and he will rejoin Thiago Silva at center back, making one of the most dominant pairings in all of the world. Javier Pastore and Marquinhos will not be ready to face Madrid today and PSG will have to manage without them. One of my favorite players in the world is Marco Verratti, a sensational young midfielder who is making a serious name for himself around the world. He is constantly linked with the truly massive clubs like Barcelona and Real Madrid and is one of the key cogs in PSG's great form this season, as they are leading Ligue 1 by 10 points after just 12 matches. This form will have them confident that they can steal some points in what is sure to be a hotly contested affair. Predictions Despite Madrid being at home, I love the form that PSG enter the match with. While I don't think they will run away with it, I expect this to be a great match with some real end-to-end action. PSG are making a claim to be considered as one of the world's top 5 clubs and this is a great chance for them to improve that case. With Madrid at home, PSG will be cautious to commit too many men to attack. With that said, I think they can get a goal or two and make this a real challenge for Madrid. I'm saying it's going to be a game with goals. 2-2, the final. What do you think? Can PSG steal points in Spain or will Madrid do their job and walk away with a lead in Group A? @InPlainSight @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @MarcusJiles @DerekGumtow @havic @yaakattackk @bnzattoni
