Inter Milan and Cardiff come to agreement for the transfer of Gary Medel [Di Marzio] + MORE

Inter Milan have reached an agreement with Cardiff City to bring Gary Medel to Italy, according to Di Marzio.
The Pitbull was a coup for Cardiff last summer as the side strengthened for their first season in the Premier League, one which would end in failure but wouldn’t tarnish Medel’s reputation too badly.
Either way, Medel was magnificent for Chile at the World Cup and his performances caught the attention of a lot of clubs. His heroic display against Brazil in the second round was inspiring…

Celtic booked their place in the Champions League 3rd qualifying round tonight after easily defeating Icelandic opponents KR Reykjavik 4-0 at Celtic Park.
The Scottish champions laboured to a win in the first leg, striking late to take a slender lead back home but tonight was a much more straightforward task.
Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk opening the scoring in the 13th minute before heading a second for Celtic just seven minutes later.
The home side went in at the break three goals to the good after Teemu Pukki bagged a third goal; KR Reykjavik were probably lucky to only concede once more in the second half as Celtic played with brilliant impetus at times…

Mario Balotelli is a player that divides opinion. Some say his talent shines through all the high-profile controversies in his career while others don’t think he’s worth the trouble.
Whatever about his potential as a footballer, it cannot be denied that Balotelli is excelling in his use of social media.
The AC Milan striker has gifted us many treats during his time online, like the Panini sticker post with an Italy team entirely reliant on Mario Balotelli(s).
This time he’s posted a video of him dancing to music while reading Ibrahimovic autobiography ‘I am Zlatan’ and also ironing a Puma top…

Manchester City have released a statement regarding an unsettling turn of events during their Elite Development Squad’s friendly against HNK Rijeka in Croatia.
The game was abandoned in the latter stages of the first half after City player Seko Fofana was racially abused by an unnamed opponent.
After being alerted to the incident, City officials called their players off the pitch and abandoned the game, a more than commendable move in our eyes.
The club statement in full says: “Manchester City’s EDS U21 game with HNK Rijeka has today been cancelled due to an alleged incident of racial abuse toward the Club’s young midfielder, Seko Fofana by a member of the opposing team…

Roma unveil 2014/15 white away strip [Pictures]Roma have gone for a bit of a shake-up with their away shirt for next season.
Normally an essentially plain white or black number with a dash of maroon along the sleeve, this year the Romans have gone for a diagonal stripe across the front, a la River Plate or Rayo Vallecano.
With no company name emblazoned across the front, Roma are continuing on from last season by forgoing with a shirt sponsor, which gives it a pretty sleek look.

Volte-face: After much deliberation, Xavi Hernandez is staying on at Barcelona for one more year.
Though he was offered various lucrative pre-retirement proposals – Qatari club Al Arabi and nascent MLS franchise New York City chief among them – the most decorated Spanish player in history has decided to give it one final shot with Los Cules, after speaking with new boss Luis Enrique.
With Victor Valdes and Carles Puyol leaving, Luis Enrique evidently felt the need to hold onto the last departing member of the old guard, so as not to make such an immediate and radical break from the past…
