The Man City 2020 squad is the strongest with Ferran Torres

The Man City squad for the 2020/21 season will be very strong with a combination of Ferran Torres, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero in attack.

After a lot of speculation, Man City finally completed the signing of 20-year-old midfielder Ferran Torres from Valencia. 

Although Transfermarkt valued 45 million euros, the Green Man only had to spend 21 million pounds (23 million euros) to recruit Torres, because the player born in 2000 had a 1-year contract with the Spanish team.

Torres is pursued by many big teams like Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Dortmund or MU. However, he chose Man City because he wanted to play under Pep Guardiola.

With his pace, youth and technique, the 1.84-meter-tall player is believed to excel in the role of the striker to be familiar – last season he played 38 of 44 matches for Valencia in this position, and the position of the left and center strikers.

However, in the context that Raheem Sterling is doing very well on the left wing, while Sergio Aguero is the number 1 choice in the striker position, Torres is likely to play the “drill” on the right wing, where Riyad Mahrez frequently appear.

In addition to Torres, the former Premier League king has just returned to the Etihad center-back Nathan Ake from Bournemouth with an initial amount of 40 million pounds. In the 2019/20 season, Ake played 30 matches for the Dean Court team, scored 2 goals and had 2 assists.

With the official acquisition of Torres and Ake, coach Pep Guardiola can be somewhat assured with the current force. In the case of not buying more, the Green Man will start with pair of defenders Aymeric Laporte – Ake, two wings are Kyle Walker (right) and Joao Cancelo (or Benjamin Mendy).

Translated right above, Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne and young player Phil Foden are three names that can be chosen. Meanwhile, the trio of Torres – Sterling – Aguero will shoulder the responsibility of scoring in the 3-4-3 chart.

Eden Hazard judges that Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale have scored the best goals ever in the Champions League.

On the occasion of the return of the Champions League, Eden Hazard gave an interview to and shared his memories of the tournament, especially the goals.

File photo dated 01-09-2007 of Liverpool’s Fernando Torres.

Revealing his favorite goal in the Champions League, Hazard said: “This question is easy because I did not score many goals in the tournament. But I think my first goal was the most special. It happened during Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over Schalke in 2013.

“I was able to pass to Fernando Torres and I should have done so, but I ended up scoring. I was lucky when the ball went into the net. I also apologize to Torres because he waited for a hat-trick. ”

Hazard also affirmed that he preferred to create for the team to score rather than score. “When you see the ball against an opponent, the feeling is the same. In my mind it’s not just about scoring goals, scoring goals and scoring goals.

“Some players now think only of scoring their own goals. But I am different, the players can create more than just scoring. That’s why I want to be the king of assists rather than a scoring machine. But I also like the feeling of scoring a beautiful goal, a goal at the last minute to bring home the victory. ”

If selected, Hazard would love to score a volley in the final like his teacher Zinedine Zidane: “I like to score a goal like Zidane did against Leverkusen in 2002. A corner kick, one shot volley and net results were decided “.

However, Hazard chose the goals of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale are the best goals ever in the Champions League.

Did Barca surrender to Real Madrid after losing points to Celta?

Barca have lost their advantage in the La Liga championship race against Real Madrid after continuously stumbling since the return of the season.

If Barca lose the La Liga championship this season, they have to blame themselves for dropping the advantage in the race with Real Madrid.

Before the campaign came back, Barca was 2 points ahead of Real Madrid but at the present time, it is inferior to the same opponent. This was the result of Messi and his teammates being drawn by Sevilla and Celta Vigo, while Real Madrid won 5 matches.

Most regrettably, Barca has to lose the last minute victory at Celta Vigo. Before Aspas equalized, Messi twice assisted Luis Suarez to score, including the situation of fooling the opponent’s defense when investig a direct free kick.

After all, Barca is not only inferior in terms of scores compared to Real Madrid but also disadvantage in terms of sub-index. Specifically, in case of equal points in the final rankings, the Catalan team still has to be ranked behind due to poor confrontation (lost to Real Madrid 0-2 and draw 0-0).

Thus, Real Madrid with the latest victory over Espanyol is in control of themselves before the last 8 rounds with 71 points. both they and Barca have 3 home matches and 3 away games.

However, both have schedules with some dangerous opponents. Real Madrid will face European football teams such as Villarreal, Getafe, Bilbao, as well as relegation: Leganes.

For its part, Barca prepare to face the biggest obstacle is Atletico Madrid, then Villarreal is not easy either.

Barca can beat Espanyol, Valladolid, Osasuna, Alaves but clearly the risk of losing points lies in two matches against Atletico and Villarreal. If that happens, it will be the end of Quique Setien’s teachers and students.

What are the special terms of Messi’s “super contract” with Barca?

Barca and Messi have begun to negotiate on a new contract, which the Spanish press believes special provisions exist.

Lionel Messi, through his father Jorge Messi, has negotiated with Barcelona over a new deal that will last until 2023, when the current deal will end in 2021.

Barca’s offer to Messi was actually a “super deal”, because in a football era under the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Argentinian striker was still guaranteed the incentives to have one no two.

Specifically, Messi continues to receive a pre-tax salary of about 100 million euros a year (L’Equipe newspaper in February revealed Messi received 8.3 million euros per month).

According to the Spanish press, Messi is guaranteed to receive a large bonus for playing more than 60% of the matches every season as well as winning trophies with Barca, in which the reward will be more generous if winning the Champions League. League.

In addition, Barcelona can offer a “bonus extension” to Messi on the condition that no annual salary increase. This is a fixed amount that clubs usually pay (once) to players who agree to an extension after entering the final year of the contract. 

The extension bonus is usually a significant sum, as it is a compensation for a decision not to follow another offer that may be higher than the current club. For example, nearly two months ago, Neymar rejected an extension from PSG of up to 100 million euros.

Moreover, the new binding between Barcelona and Messi will include a special provision at the end of each season, similar to the previous Andres Iniesta. 

Accordingly, Messi can evaluate at the end of each season whether to continue with Barca or not, as long as not transferred to a club in Spain or the same tournament in Europe. Iniesta chose to play his final years at Vissel Kobe in Japan.
