Cristiano Ronaldo has completed his move from Real Madrid to Juventus at the age of 33. Showing that he has no plans of slowing down for the final stages of his playing career, signing a four year deal I very much think that means we will be seeing him in the next World Cup in 2022. That is a truly fantastic thought really, in his press conference he had a little dig at the players at this age who go to Qatar or China. So it is great to see this legendary player still actually wants to play at the very top level!

Mikel Merino has returned to Spain in a deal between £10-12m and signed a 5-year contract with Real Sociedad a club that is only 50 miles away from his hometown. Leaving Newcastle United after showing amazing promise in his first few games, but then looked to be left out more and more towards the end of the season. At 22 years old I am sure he will still progress a lot further in his career and wish him well for this move. A little bit of a shame having only spent one season on Tyneside.
Some fantastic transfer news was eventually announced for Newcastle United this morning after a few days of speculation and Kenedy posting videos looking at the Tyne Bridge from a Quayside place. We have the player in the shirt! The new shirts as well.

Capped at England youth level and up to U21s, I always enjoyed seeing his progress after breaking through as a teenager.

The longest drawn out transfer ever? Well possibly. I think everyone (but Arsenal fans) are happy that this has eventually been sorted out as it has been going on for what feels like years now. With all the speculation and talk about it. The main thing that annoys me about it all is why did Cesc leave in the first place if he wanted to go back so much in the end? Just doesn’t make much sense to me.
He had the medical, signed a 5-year contract and was unveiled yesterday in front of 30,000 Barca fans. But annoyed Arsenal fans one last time by kissing the badge during the unveiling.
The main thing to watch now is when exactly Fabregas will be able to break into the Barca team and how many games he will actually play this season. We all know how good the midfield is! Arsenal in the mean time have their Champions League qualifier tonight!
