Cesc Fabregas says it would be "suicidal" to even consider joining big-spending Premier League rivals Manchester City.

"It would be suicidal for my career at my 21 years of age to move to City," said Fabregas, who is currently away on international duty with the European champions Spain. "It would make no sense."

Real Madrid Eye Podolski For January

Real Madrid are currently looking at the possibility of signing Bayern Munich striker Luca Podolski during the January transfer window according to Marca.

The German international has already come close to swapping the Bundesliga for the Primera Division and he is admired by Los Blancos coach Bernd Schuster.

Podolski has already asked the German side to leave as he is not getting much playing time in the Allianz Arena.

Jurgen Klinsmann is sticking with Luca Toni and Miroslav Klose up front this season, therefore it is highly unlikely that the Polish-born hit-man will get much chance to shine this term.

Marca claims that the Santiago Bernabeu club are planning to pounce and make their move as soon as the European player market opens its doors to it’s new sales in January.

Podolski is a proven striker at both club and international level and reports suggest that Real may secure his services for around €12m.

However, there is one problem which may cause the Spanish side reconsider their options.

The striker will not be eligible to play for Los Merengues in the Champions League if he plays in that competition for Bayern from now until January.

In any case, Real are likely to prepare the cash and give their coach a late Christmas present.



Thank you Ade for posting this on my fb wall. I had to share with the rest of you. This is exciting and I hope this comes through for Lukas. He needs it.

Spain NT 101

Here it is. Thank you all for your votes in the poll. I really appreciate your input. Thank you also for filling out the poll about the pronunciation guide for the Spanish National Team. Around 80% of you voted for the pronunciation guide, so here it is. I did it in a format that's all-inclusive, and includes the player's full name, birthplace and birthdate, and what team he currently plays for. The numbers are not included because they're always subject to change. Hope this helps you all out, and feel free to comment if you want me to do a player that is off the national team or has retired and you're still curious about name pronunciation.

I've been informed by soarne that if you hover over the name and wait for the Snapshot to come up, you can listen to it right there without having to download. :)

So, without further ado, Collapse )
