El capitán del Real Madrid cree que el fichaje de Messi no es imposible>

Unfortunately, all this bullshit fabricated by the Madrid press (with Raúl now feeding the fire) is getting to Barcelona based press (and who can blame them after Figo...) and they start publishing articles such as:

The boys over at La Liga Loca are being quite sensible about it and telling Barça to chill because our bb won't be going anywhere.

Robinho arrested by police over rape allegation

Robinho, the Manchester City footballer, was arrested by police in relation to allegations that an 18-year-old woman was raped in a nightclub.

The 25-year-old Brazilian forward, who is Britain’s most expensive player, was quizzed after a university student told police she had been attacked in the VIP area of the Space club in Leeds in the early hours of January 14.

Chris Nathaniel, Robinho’s spokesman, confirmed that the footballer met the police yesterday “as pre-arranged as part of a criminal investigation”.

Mr Nathaniel told The Sun: “He strenuously denies any allegation of wrong-doing or criminality and is happy to co-operate with the police if required further.”

The Brazilian star, whose real name is Robson de Souza, is married with a son. He was thought to be in Leeds with team-mates for a night out.

A spokeswoman for West Yorkshire Police said last night: “A man was arrested today and was questioned in connection with an alleged incident in a nightclub in Leeds on January 14. He has now been released pending further inquiries.”

Robinho, who earns a reported wage of £160,000 a week, is expected to play for Manchester City against Newcastle tonight.

The club refused to comment.

Robinho signed from Real Madrid for £32.5 million, a British record, in September last year, as City's new Middle Eastern owners set out their desire to make the club real contenders for the Premier league title.

Despite a series of goals which have underlined his status as one of the world's most talented players, Robinho has not managed to shift City from mid-table. The club failed last week to sign his Brazil teammate Kaka for £100 million as the Milan forward opted for Champions League football over wages of £500,000 a week.

Since then Robinho has had to deny being unsettled in Manchester after media reports linking him with Chelsea, a club he had expressed interest in joining over the summer.

Last week he left a City training camp in Tenerife without permission to fly back to Brazil, citing "family reasons" - believed to mean celebrations for his 25th birthday. He faces a fine of £320,000 for the misdemeanour. City manager Mark Hughes has insisted: "Robinho will be treated in exactly the same manner as any other player at Manchester City. Everybody knows that. There is no special case here."

Van der Sar and Man Utd set clean sheet record

Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar set a new English top-flight record for clean sheets when the champions crushed West Bromwich Albion 5-0 at the Hawthorns on Tuesday.

The Dutchman has gone 1,032 minutes without having to pick the ball out of his net in the Premier League, beating the previous record of 1,025 set by Chelsea's Petr Cech in 2004-05.

"The most important thing is the win, but of course it is great for the team to get the record. I just needed to keep the concentration levels high and fire up the defenders and midfielders," Van der Sar told BBC Radio Five Live.

"When I saw 85 minutes on the clock I was happy but the most important thing was that we got the three points." (Full Article)
