MBAPPE TO MADRID WILL BE THE FINAL NAIL ON MORATA

The amount being reported as the fee to be paid by anyone in need of the latest French youngster to grow from the famed talent mill of Monaco KylianMbappe may be downright depressing.


Still suitors obsession with the young man is not far from valid justification

In leading the line of the team that managed to shame the elite club of France and the rest of the European free spenders that doing the dirty work of getting your studs down the mud of youths can still bring success, the 18-year old proved that he was one for the future.

As the summer wars linger around waiting for the transfer window to open, the figures flying around are sure not to go away quietly. What is mostly reported is the benchmark of€113 million tabled by Real Madrid.

When Alvaro Morata was brought back from Juventus last summer many expected him to be a great contributory factor in Zinedine Zidane’s first full season as coach. Read more »

Cesc Fabregas also praises Eden Hazard highly

Ray Wilkins just like Cesc Fabregas also rates Eden Hazard highly and reckons that there is not a big difference between him and Lionel Messi if one compares the sheer footballing skills of the two players.


Wilkins reckons that it can’t be said at this stage that Hazard 100% matches Messi as a player, but, the Belgian is surely there and thereabouts and is not lying behind by a big margin.

Fabregas had recently suggested that apart from Messi, there is no other player in the world who has got more potential than Hazard, but, the only problem with Hazard is that he is not as selfish as he should be.

According to Fabregas, rather than finding the net himself, Hazard tends to make opportunities for the others to score and that is why, he has not been able to make as big a name for himself as he could have.

Fabregas revealed that he had advised Hazard to get a little selfish on certain occasions and try and register the goal to his own name rather than just assisting it because it’s the number of goals only which would get him into the list of elite footballers. Read more »

FABREGAS TO JOIN OSCAR IN CHINA?

With the much-publicised move of Brazilian playmaker Oscar from top Premier League side Chelsea to the Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua, there have been rumours that struggling Cesc Fabregas might exit as well next term.


There is still a strong link to veteran defender John Terry finishing his career in China, particularly with the huge figures involved. There are reports that former Chelsea boss Luis Felipe Scolari, who manages Guangzhou Evergrande, wants the Spain international but it would be hard convincing the player who is keen on working his way back into the national team after losing invitations recently Evergrande is willing to splash £40 million on Fabregas, according to reports. There are reports that Fabregas has been getting action in the Premier League in bid to make him attractive again in the transfer market. Read more »

Fabregas to City

There are reports that Manchester City might make a move for Chelsea and Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas.


The midfielder has already played under Pep Guardiola at Barcelona and might be interested in meeting with his former manager again.

Manchester City who has failed to win a game for 5 matches now are looking for players that can strengthen the team. It is believed that Pep Guardiola wants to sign Cesc Fabregas who seems to be unsettled at Chelsea.  The player has failed to adapt to Antonio Conte system and seemed to be only a fringe player for the Chelsea team.

Cesc Fabregas will feel that moving to Manchester City can provide him with more playing time and give him a career boost.

However, some pundits believe that Cesc Fabregas is not the right player for Manchester City. They believe that the team needs defensive reinforcement and that Fabregas is not really a defensive midfielder. Read more »

FABREGAS AND CASILLAS MISSING FROM SPAIN’S LIST

Chelsea play maker Cesc Fabregas and Spanish veteran Iker Casillas were notable name missing from the players’ list released by Vincent del Bosque’s replacement.


Manager Julen Lopetegui released his first invitation to players this week as Spain is trying to restore itself as the best after their 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016 stumble.

Spain were a real dominant force with their talented player and unique style of play from 2008-2012. They won the 2010 World Cup, and Euro 2008 and 2012. Lopetegui has been handed a critical task of returning the country to winning ways. Hence, the start is to get the best players to feature in games. He decided to leave out Spain’s most capped player in Casillas. Casillas has 167 caps for Spain, while Fabregas has featured 110 times for his country.

Spain is set to play against Belgium and Liechtenstein during the international window in a bid to get a ticket to Moscow. Chelsea striker Diego Costa and Manchester United’s Juan Mata got a recall to the national team after being left out of the Euro 2016 squad. David de Gea is set to appear in goal, as he did during the tournament in Brazil. Adrian of West Ham and Pepe Reina of Napoli are the spare goalkeepers.
Regulars Sergio Ramos, Dani Carvajal, Gerard Pique, and Jordi Alba got a call to the team, with Borussia Dortmund’s Marc Bartra, Chelsea’s Cesar Azpilicueta and Javi Martinez completing the list of defenders.
