Barcelona rejected Inter bid for Messi

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has revealed that Inter Milan made an audacious attempt to buy Argentina striker Lionel Messi during the summer.

Star striker Lionel Messi celebrates his goal as Barcelona win the Champions League.

Messi, who won the Champions League, Primera Liga and Copa del Rey treble last season is a leading contender to win the Ballon d'Or and is one of Barcelona's prized assets.

When asked if Internazionale president Massimo Moratti had expressed an interest in buying Messi, Laporta told Corriere dello Sport: "Yes he did."

"But there is nothing to talk about. Messi is not for sale, he (Moratti) must forget about it."
In September, Messi signed a new contract with Barcelona that will keep him at the European champions until 2016 and includes a massive €250 million buy-out clause.

After signing the contract the 22-year-old forward said: "I want to spend my entire career here, in Barcelona, if it's possible. I would love to finish at Barcelona."

Inter sold Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Barcelona during the summer in a €60 million transfer that saw Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o head in the other direction. Messi is thought to have been mentioned during negotiations for this deal.


ok so im totally bored in geo class and desperately needing entertainment. this is why i love internet =D

Frank Lampard faces three-week lay-off for Chelsea and set to miss Arsenal showdown

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard will be sidelined for up to three weeks with the thigh injury he sustained on England duty.

Lampard reported back to Chelsea's Cobham training crowd this morning having left the England set-up in Doha yesterday.

The club's medical staff's early diagnosis is that the midfielder has suffered a muscle tear in his left thigh which will take up to three weeks to heal.

As a result of the injury, Lampard is likely to miss Chelsea's Premier League showdown with Arsenal at the Emirates on Nov 29 as well as their Champions League trip to FC Porto on Nov 25.

He wil also be sidelined for their next Premier League contest at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Nov 21.
Chelsea will hope Lampard recovers in time to line-up for their trip to Manchester City in early December as they look to extend their lead at the top of the table.Fábio Aurélio injury adds to Liverpool's woes

Liverpool's Fabio Aurélio has been forced to pull out of Brazil's squad to face England after suffering a muscle injury, his national federation has confirmed. The left-sided defender, who can also play in midfield, will miss the match in Doha and Brazil's friendly against Oman.

His injury is another cause of concern for Rafael Benítez, who is likely to have a severely weakened squad for Liverpool's next Premier League game, at home against Manchester City on 21 November, with Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres, Albert Riera and Yossi Benayoun all receiving treatment. The manager does, however, expect Glen Johnson to be available after a hamstring strain

On Saturday...Can the kiwis qualify please?!?!

O.Ozil post

Ozil agent quiet on Arsenal interest

The agent of Werder Bremen midfielder Mezut Ozil has refused to comment on speculation linking the starlet with moves to Arsenal and Sevilla.

The 21-year-old has made 48 league appearances for Bremen since joining from Schalke in 2008, netting seven goals.
Ozil, who has Turkish heritage, has made five appearances for the German national team, having already represented his country at both U19 and U21 level.

And he was part of the squad that beat England 4-0 in the final of the U21 European Championships in Sweden this summer.
As a result, Ozil has been tipped to complete a big-money move to the Emirates Stadium to continue his development under Arsene Wenger, with Spanish high-fliers Sevilla also believed to be interested.

But although the player's agent, Reza Fazeli, admitted that he was aware of the rumours surrounding Ozil's future, he would not be drawn on whether there was any truth in them.

"I have heard about interest from Arsenal and Sevilla in Mesut," he said.

"But I clearly do not want to make any further comment on these rumours."



Basically a news about no news. I hope he goes to Arsenal. He's very talented and would be a good addition to the the gunners.

Report: Roma Star Daniele De Rossi Admitted To Hospital With Renal Colic

The midfielder has been forced to return to the Gemelli Hospital just days after undergoing cheekbone surgery...

Daniele De Rossi - Roma (Adidas)

Il Tempo newspaper reports that Roma midfield ace Daniele De Rossi has been re-admitted to the Gemelli Hospital after feeling ill yesterday morning.

It is believed the 26-year-old suffered an attack of renal colic and was ordered to stay overnight, after undergoing a series of medical tests throughout the day.

Roma have been tight-lipped on the incident so far, but Il Tempo claim that it’s too early to say whether De Rossi will need to go under the knife.

“I visited him in his room and he was really in pain, so he must rest,” head nurse Suor Luisa told the newspaper.

“I don’t know how long it will take, but I’m sure he will recover soon as Roma and the national team are waiting for him.”

De Rossi had been at this same hospital on Monday when he underwent surgery on a fractured cheekbone after being accidentally elbowed by Inter midfielder Patrick Vieira during Sunday’s 1-1 draw at the San Siro.

accidental elbow?
yeah sure.

Algeria footballers hurt in Cairo

Algerian footballers hit by stones

Four members of the Algerian football squad were injured when their team bus came under attack from stone throwers as it arrived in Cairo.

Algeria and Egypt, who are bitter football rivals, play a World Cup qualifying match in Cairo on Saturday.
Egyptian police have denied that anyone was injured in the incident, and the press accuses the Algerians of fabricating the whole thing.
But a Fifa official has said three players might have to miss the match.
A reporter for Algerian radio said that about 200 young people appeared just as the team arrived at a Cairo hotel and launched a hail of stones at the bus. Algerian radio has been reporting that three players were injured.
'Blood on the floor'

The Algerian sports minister, Hachemi Djiar, is reported to have described the incident as "very regrettable".

so much football, so much football.

El Apache is already thinking about retiring!
6 months ago he was complaining about the lack of playing time he was given by Fergie
Now he is saying that a life of football has exhausted him


"As a player I can't permit myself to play one game, but not another.

"And also, the World Cup is coming up. I see it very difficult to stay with Manchester United. That's the reality.

"You can score three or four goals and not play in the next game.

"It gets to your head. I need to play,"


"It's complicated, there's my family, the desire to return to Boca Juniors, but I think about it.

"It crosses my mind to hang up my boots if we win the World Cup, although I have a contract (with Manchester City) until 2014.

"I'm a bit tired of so much football, so much football.

"I want to enjoy my family a bit. I'm very keen to stop and get a bit of calm. I've already won a lot. Living for football has saturated me."

I think this is just code for:

"I shouldn't have left my boyfriend Patrice Evra. Life in Manchester sucks now"

except his english vocab isn't that big

if you retire from football soon please please please make a comeback to the music industry
