Arsenal eye Casillas move

Arsenal’s Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla has revealed the North London club are interested in signing his compatriot Iker Casillas at the end of the season. The Spain international has found himself restricted to appearances in the cup competitions for Real Madrid this season after slipping behind Diego Lopez in the pecking order under Carlo Ancelotti.

With the Real boss making it clear he doesn’t see any reason to change his position in terms of his goalkeeping choice, Casillas has been linked in the transfer betting news with a move away from the Bernabeu this summer.

Chelsea Deservedly Through

A few days ago, Galatasaray striker, Didier Drogba, said that he may not celebrate scoring a goal against former club, Chelsea, during last night’s Champions League match at Stamford Bridge. In the end, with his team failing to hit the target even once, the decision was taken away from him.

World Cup value

Just now, the football world is relatively calm in the sense that the people who are getting excited about it are generally ardent football fans.

So now – while things remain calm - is the time to have a punt. But who should that be on?

TOP, TOP PLAYERS

MLS Commissioner Don Garber says that the likes of Jermain Defoe, Thierry Henry, and David Beckham are the kind of players MLS needs in order to grow as the top league in this region. Since its launch in 1994, MLS has come a long way especially in the last decade.

This has been primarily attributed to the arrival of David Beckham in 2007. He played for five years in the league, which has previously not got major attention from European regions. Now, it is one of the popular destinations for pre-season tours and scouting players.

WILL LAMPARD GO?

With the 2014 World Cup edging nearer and nearer, coaches of every national team is preparing their best players and formations which they are going to use for the worldwide competition.

BECKHAM BACKS MOYES

Former Manchester United star David Beckham says that manager David Moyes is someone who will do well at the club when he is given the time. Moyes took over from Sir Alex Ferguson, who stepped down from his role after 26 years in charge of the club, in the summer.
