Griezmann can pick his club but Barcelona have Messi as bait

soccer jerseys
Antoine Griezmann will have plenty of suitors now he's announced his departure from Atletico Madrid this summer: Manchester United tried hard to sign him in 2017 but need him now more than ever, while he would amplify the trophy chances of PSG, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid without any question. Even if you are cynical about a guy who drew out the "is he or isn't he?" saga for an eternity a year ago before using the daft "The Decision" video to announce that he wasn't going anywhere, you have to understand why there will be a queue of the world's leading clubs now the French World Cup winner is on the market.nike nfl jerseys cheap china While Bayern need a short-term strike partner and long-term replacement for Robert…

The 30-year-old has had a good campaign, earning himself a new contract which he signed in February, but the club are aware they need backup for him in the long-term.

Dani Alves has questioned Barcelona's transfer policy and defended Lionel Messi in an interview with ESPN FC following his former side's Champions League elimination at the hands of Liverpool. Under Pep Guardiola, Barca won two Champions League titles in three seasons with the core of their players coming from the famed La Masia academy. However, recently they have favoured expensive acquisitions over nurturing their own talent. And Paris Saint-Germain defender Alves said he feels the club have focused more on big-name signings.cheap nfl jerseys china nike Asked whether Barcelona had lost their style of play, Alves, 36, told ESPN FC: "I agree with that somewhat. When I see stories about how Barca are now buying players to market them, you can sense that they are changing their philosophy a bit.…

A-League elimination finals review: A glimpse at Australian football’s potential

soccer jerseys
Victory coach Kevin Muscat should not go without recognition here either, but Friday's match was football at its purest, primarily because of his counterpart. As highlighted before the match, Rudan and Wellington embraced the risk involved in pressing Victory during the regular season, proving to be a viable ploy. Muscat certainly adjusted to that formational susceptibility, moving Raul Baena to the base of Victory's midfield diamond in possession and deploying Elvis Kamsoba on the left, while Carl Valeri and Corey Brown were left out of the starting lineup. In Brown's place, Leigh Broxham started at left-back.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale Although Muscat avoided specifics on his own adjustments, they were at least acknowledged. "Without going into too much detail, naturally, we made some changes to personnel," he said post-match. "Based…

MLS to expand to 30 teams; St. Louis, Sacramento to make formal bids

soccer jerseys
MLS intends to expand to 30 teams, with teams 28 and 29 requiring an expansion fee of $200 million, commissioner Don Garber announced Thursday following a Board of Governors meeting.

Manchester City are boring their way to the title as Premier League also-rans struggle to keep up

soccer jerseys
If Manchester City retain the Premier League title, the signs are they will have done it the boring way. Sunday's win at Crystal Palace -- beyond a nine-minute spell after Luka Milivojevic's clever free kick to make it 2-1 -- was not a contest. And that has become a consistent theme. If you seek drama and tension, or perhaps simply to be moved by football, City's Premier League games are probably not for you. They are exhibitions of control and it is difficult, when they perform with this kind of clarity, to see them falling short in the title race.nike nfl jerseys cheap china For its vast majority, Sunday's 3-1 win was almost identical to City's two previous away trips in the league, against Fulham and Bournemouth. Both of those…
