The German midfielder, Mesut Ozil, is regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world. It helped him on the transfer to the Spanish club Real Madrid a few seasons ago.
He has managed to establish himself as one of the important players at the club despite heavy competition from the likes of Luka Modric. The 24-year-old is expected to be one of the main players for Real Madrid in the last 16 tie against Manchester United. The second leg of the encounter will take place at Old Trafford with the Spanish club coming into the match with a 1-1 deficit from the first leg.
The Premier league champions Manchester City are currently holding talks with the Italian clubs Juventus and AC Milan over the potential sale of the striker Mario Balotelli. The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from the club after causing a series of troubles during his two-year spell at the club.
He has also failed to lighten the Premier league with goals this season. Despite making 14 appearances in the Premier league, Balotelli has managed to score just one goal – against relegation threatened Wigan Athletic. The manager Roberto Mancini was recently pictured having a bust up with the Italian, although he was quick to deny it.
The Manchester city manager Roberto Mancini has said that the owner of the club – Sheikh Mansour – is not interested in selling the striker Mario Balotelli, despite rumours linking the Italian with a move away from the club in the January or summer transfer window.
The 22-year-old has been causing a lot of troubles at the club ever since arriving in a £ 24 million deal from Inter Milan in 2010. He has been regarded as one of the best young talent in world football, but is yet to display his talent on a consistent basis. Mancini has been extremely patient with the striker over the years, but it is thought that he has finally run out of patience.
The AC Milan President Silvio Berlusconi has said that there is no chance of the club being interested in a swap deal involving Alexandre Pato and the Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.
The future of the former Inter Milan star Mario Balotelli has been thrown into doubt following the number of altercations with the manager Roberto Mancini. He has said that he is finally running out of patience with the striker, which have started rumours that City will be interested in stopping him with another major striker across Europe. Balotelli has made no secret of the fact that he is a huge AC Milan fan.
The Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo has said that he is not sure whether the French international Florent Malouda will play for the club again. The 31-year-old has recently been frozen out of the first team action and has been ordered to train with the reserves.
The Chelsea manager Roberto de Matteo has said that he has taken this decision along with the players due to the fact that Florent Malouda was not in his plans this season. The French international is out of contract at the end of the season. He already tried to engineer a move away from the club in the summer, but the proposed move to Brazilian club Santos fell through due to his excessive wage demands.
The Italian national team manager Cesare Prandelli has said that the Manchester city striker Mario Balotelli has a future with the national team, but he needs to sort out his attitude. Mario Balotelli has been recognised as one of the best talents in the world football, with many claiming that he has the capability to go on and win many individual accolades.
However, he has also been causing a lot of problems with his poor attitude, which has been a cause of concern for the Italian national team manager. Despite this, he picked him for the Euro 2012 and Balotelli did not disappoint after he was one of the stars of the major tournament.
