Ronaldo

About a month ago, Ronaldinho expressed how he feels about Cristiano Ronaldo by saying that he is one of the best players in the world today. Along with other praises, Dinho even gave Ronaldo a shirt of his own in hopes that he would like it.

Well, apparently Ronaldo liked the gesture and returned the favor. He sent a signed Real Madrid jersey to the ex-Barcelona star. Ronaldinho then took to Facebook to upload the picture of how happy he was to receive this awesome gift. He even went went on to say how much he loved it. I’m sensing a friendship blossoming between the Brazilian and Portuguese soccer stars.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi and his father are accused of not paying their taxes in Spain. It is reported that they owe around 4 million euros for the years 2006 to 2009 and that they channeled their money through companies that served as a front in tax haven countries, specifically Belize and Uruguay. Messi and his father, Jorge, have denied any such accusations and released a statement saying they found out about the allegations through the media.

If the allegations are true, Messi could be in a lot of trouble. In this case, the tax fraud would not be because of mistakes in paperwork (I’m sure he pays a lot of money to have his millions taken care of properly), but because the evasion would be part of an intricate system that is specifically set up for the purpose of avoiding paying taxes. While it will take a while for everything to unfold (if the allegations are true), it will be interesting to see what happens. Good luck Leo.

Last week after Barcelona’s¬†penalty¬†shootout win against Espanyol in the Copa Catalunya, Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez crashed his car into a barrier on the highway and managed to walk away unscathed. It is unclear how he lost control of his car, but authorities expect he was speeding. After crashing his car, Sanchez got out and called a teammate to pick up him. The two left the car in the middle of the road and just went back to Sanchez’s house without telling police. Due to Sanchez leaving the scene, it is likely he will receive some sort of fine.

Neymar

Brazilian superstar Neymar announced that he has signed with Barcelona, joining forces with the premier club in the world and other superheroes like Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta.

This is turning out a lot like the plot of Avengers. World domination is sure to follow. Messi has already given his seal of approval on the deal and Barca confirmed it via Twitter.

Brazilian media is reporting that Barca will pay about 30 million euros ($38.8 million) for the 21-year-old former Santos star.

“I’m sad to be leaving Santos, but it’s a great honor to be signing with a club like Barcelona and to be able to play with some of the best players in the world,” Neymar said.

Barcelona beer company Estrella Damm recently put out this clever ad with the anthem of F.C. Barcelona executed by blowing on bottles. A fan sits down, opens his beer, take a sip, seemingly forgets it’s there then realizes that his beer is in front of him. He blows over the mouth of the beer and realizes that it makes a sound, much to his surprise. Then he decides to get more beer bottles, fill them with various quantities of beer and produce the anthem of Barca.

It’s a pretty cool video and I applaud the efforts. Now I’d like to see one with Valencia or Real Madrid. Oops, did I just give myself away?

Messi Neymar

Amidst speculation that Neymar could join Barcelona, Lionel Messi has given his public endorsement saying that he would in fact welcome the addition of the Brazilian.

“For us he would be a marvelous addition,” Messi said. “He is the type of player who offers individual solutions different from the rest. He is a great player, who is very good in one-on-ones with opponents.”

Can you imagine Messi and Neymar on the same team? Unreal.

It was a great move by Messi to clear the air before a potential arrival as we’ve seen what can happen when things get awkward between teammates.

Check out FC Barcelona as you’ve never seen them before. Fresh off a La Liga title and completely … well, happy.

They’re falling every which way; dancing and taking off their shirts. Yeah, they’re pretty … happy. Perfect song choice, by the way.
