  13. Milan close on Nainggolan
    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported,AC Milan are on the verge of completing a deal to sign Belgian midfielder Radja Nainggolan from Cagliari.
    Isolani president Massimo Cellino yesterday suggested that the player would either join Juventus or Milan, but it would appear as though the Rossoneri have won the chase for his signature.
    According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, there is just €750,000 separating the two sides at the moment, which is enough to suggest an agreement will be reached in the coming days.
    The arrival of one of Serie A’s best midfielders is likely to be a boost for the Rossoneri, especially with Keisuke Honda and Adil Rami already joining the San Siro outfit.
    Milan will give their best to try and save this season, but the problem is they are already 17 points behind third-placed Napoli.as reported by Indo Eleven.
    The Rossoneri play host to Atalanta on 6th January and are priced at 4/9 to end a poor run of results.

  14. Queiroz: Ronaldo was destined for greatness
    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported,Former Portugal manager Carlos Queiroz believes Cristiano Ronaldo was destined to become the “Michael Jordan of football” from a young age.
    Queiroz, who is now the Iran national team manager, coached Ronaldo during his time in charge of Portugal between 2008 and 2010, making the Real Madrid superstar captain of his country at the age of 23.
    The 60-year-old also worked with Ronaldo during his two spells as assistant manager to Alex Ferguson at Manchester United before his compatriot left for Real in a then world record deal in 2009.
    And Queiroz, who was at Old Trafford when Ronaldo arrived from Sporting Lisbon in 2003, had no doubt that the forward would establish himself as a modern-day great – even likening him to Chicago Bulls legend Jordan, who is widely considered to be the best basketball player in history.
    “(Ronaldo is) the most complete player I have ever coached in my life,” he said. “In terms of fitness, ability, technical, tactical.as reported by Indo Eleven.
    “I can see in the last two years Cristiano growing up a lot, but he had everything.
    “He had a little bit of Ronaldo (the Brazil legend, who Queiroz managed at Real Madrid in 2003-04), Figo – the speed, heading. He’s fantastic at shooting with both feet, free-kicks, dribbling, passing.
    “One day (at United), I don’t remember when, I said he would be the Michael Jordan of football.”

  15. Roar looking to bounce back against Sydney
    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported,A-League leaders Brisbane will be aiming to put more distance between themselves and second spot when they face Sydney FC in Round 12.
    The Roar’s four-game winning streak came to a grinding halt last week when they lost to Newcastle 2-0 at Suncorp Stadium.
    The result served as Brisbane’s first loss on their home ground this season and just their third defeat overall for 2013-14.
    And the bad news for the Sky Blues is that when Brisbane lost their other two matches this season, they bounced back to win the very next game on both occasions.
    So the Queensland club will be hell bent on atonement at Allianz Stadium on Thursday night.
    The Roar (24 points) are currently two points clear of their nearest rivals Western Sydney (22), so a win for Mike Mulvey’s men would at least maintain their breathing space on top of the table by Saturday night when the Wanderers face the Melbourne Victory.
    But should Brisbane draw or lose to Sydney, things could really tighten up if the Sky Blues’ fierce cross-town rivals then manage to down the Victory.as reported by Indo Eleven.
    A draw for the Roar would still almost certainly see them remain in top spot, no matter how Western Sydney went against Melbourne, due to goal difference.
