No one likes a big-name signing more than Real Madrid, the home of the Galáctico. You almost get the feeling that club president Florentino Perez is a little dismayed at the recent success and stability brought by manager Zinedine Zidane.
With Real Madrid having won its third Champions League title in four years, pundits and fans alike continue to make the case that La Liga has overtaken the other major European leagues as the most elite division in the world.
Spain and Colombia both scored goals in the first half that shouldn't have been let in. Falcao scored a great header in the 54th minute. After an incredible season, winning the French Ligue 1 with AS Monaco, Falcao's swagger and confidence are reminiscent of his Atletico Madrid days.
The biggest takeaway from this game is that Radamel Falcao is a testament that 31 is the new 25. Don't hang up your boots anytime soon, Monaco is begging you.
Gerard Pique's season was cut short as a result of Barcelona's abbreviated run to the Champions League quarterfinals, but he's keeping himself busy.
Pique reportedly missed the UCL final to attend class at Harvard Business School, where he is studying toward his MBA. He's currently enrolled in The Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports, a signature class of HBS' Executive Education Program.
There’s been quite an interesting turn of events in the Spanish capital of Madrid: less than 72 hours after winning their 12th Champions League title, Real Madrid are fighting a public relations battle after some very negative comments from long-time club servant and central defender Pepe.
Cristiano Ronaldo has won just about every individual honor you can win during his career, but the ultimate prize, the cover of the FIFA video game, has always eluded him. Until now.
A new trailer for FIFA 18 has been released, and it is extremely Ronaldo focused. Check it out:
Lionel Messi turned in a Midas-like performance in Saturday’s Copa del Rey final — everything he touched turned into gold. He opened the scoring for Barca in the 30th minute with an unstoppable effort from 18 yards out, he was heavily involved with a “hockey assist” in Neymar’s goal and then he settled the match before halftime with a sublime feed for Paco Alcacer and Barcelona’s third.
Outside of these pivotal moments, Messi was unplayable. He registered 101 touches in the game, including four key passes, four shots and a staggering nine successful dribbles.
If you're the type of person who thinks about their own death constantly and has premontions of dying all the time and are also a Real madrid fan, boy do we have a product for you.
