Fınal offer for Alves
FC Barcelona has yesterday submitted its final contract extension offer for Dani Alves’s agent to study and accept, which according to the Catalan-language sports paper ‘Sport’ today, is kind of a take-it-or-leave-it proposal.

Manchester United on verge of signing £3.5m goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard


• Denmark No1 set to agree terms in next few days
• United have had the goalkeeper watched five times

Denmark's goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard  

Manchester United are close to announcing the signing of the Denmark international goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard after provisionally agreeing terms for the man Sir Alex Ferguson believes can take over from Edwin van der Sar.

Lindegaard will cost around £3.5m from the Norwegian club Aalesunds FK, with the deal expected to be confirmed in the next 48 hours. The chief executive, Henrik Hoff, and the chairman, Bjarne Haagensen, are understood to be in England today and talks are described as at an advanced stage. Jim Solbakken, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's agent, has been mediating between the two clubs, with Lindegaard due to join in the January transfer window.

If everything goes to according to plan, United now hope they have found a suitable replacement for Van der Sar, who is now 40 and considering retiring at the end of the season.

The Guardian first reported United's interest in Lindegaard on 4 October after the club's goalkeeping coach, Eric Steele, travelled to Norway to watch him for the fifth time. Steele has reported back to Sir Alex Ferguson that the 26-year-old would be a reliable successor for Van der Sar, particularly commanding in the air at 6ft 4ins.

Ferguson and Steele have decided that it is worth the gamble despite Lindegaard barely being on their radar during six years at his previous club Odense. Lindegaard was largely a reserve in that time and was forced to look for new employers after the club signed the former United goalkeeper Roy Carroll.

It was when Lindegaard moved to Aalesunds last year, initially on loan, that his career took off. He was so impressive he was offered a three-year deal and has since taken over from Thomas Sorensen as the Danish No1, winning four caps.

United's need for a new goalkeeper has been a priority at Old Trafford all year, with Ben Foster sold to Birmingham City in the summer and Sir Alex Ferguson having misgivings about Tomasz Kuszczak. The club have high hopes for the 20-year-old Ben Amos but believe he is far from ready for a run in the first team.

David De Gea, the Spain under-21 international, has also come to the attention of United after his performances for Atlético Madrid in La Liga.

Ferguson took Steele on a spying mission earlier this season to watch De Gea play against Valencia, United's Champions League opponents, and it cannot be ruled out that they will try to bring him in as well. De Gea, however, would be far more expensive than Lindegaard, whose low valuation will appeal to United's owners.

Javier's determined




You could forgive Chicharito if he were feeling just a little daunted. After all, he’s been thrust into the spotlight with the expectations of a nation on his shoulders. Overwhelmed? Not a bit of it. The first Mexican to play for United is taking it all in his stride, determined to eventually add his name to the long list of legendary Reds front men…

USA's "C" team performs like a "B+" team; gets a W. and other USA stuff


So coach Bob decided to not call up the national team hotties we drooled over all summer regulars and decided to call up jailbait young up and comers. Rumor has it the average age was 14. That's a lie. But it was the youngest call-up, 17 yr-old Colombia born (no word on if he knows Shakira)  Juan Agudelo who got the games lone goal. (articulate story here)

Paying off my release clause like you wantin' me

Santos starlet Neymar is ready to leave Brazil and test himself in Europe, revealing that of the "five big clubs" interested in him, Juventus would be his preferred destination.

Neymar, 18, was tracked by Chelsea over the summer but surprisingly signed a new contract with Santos in August amid serious interest from the Premier League champions.

The Blues were reportedly willing to pay £25 million for his services, but Santos increased the teenage striker's salary in a bid to convince him to stay.
