Who Could Arsenal Face in the Champions League Qualifiers? by FD
So Arsenal have once again seen off the Spuds and secured fourth place in the Premier League and confirmed our place in the Top Four for the 16th time in a row. Can you believe that the bookies are now offering the great price of 8/11 for the Gunners to do it again next season.

With the summer transfer window looming, clubs are beginning to make their preliminary interest in certain players known, trying to get a leg up on other clubs competing for these players' signatures. Italian giants AC Milan and English titans Arsenal have both been linked with French winger Antoine Griezmann, who is enjoying a phenomenal season in Spain for his club side Real Sociedad.
The rumours about a possible return to Arsenal for the former captain and star midfielder, Cesc Fabregas, have been rumbling for a while now, but they seem to be building up a head of steam ready to blow as soon as the season ends. The Spanish Primera Liga has it's final day on June 1st, so we are unlikely to know anything for sure until then, but there have been a few new stories in the Spanish media.
AC Milan managed to secure a place in the Champions League after the 2-1 win over Siena during the weekend, but the celebrations were marred because of striker Mario Balotelli being racially abused by Fiorentina fans. Milan destroyed the hopes of Fiorentina returning to the Champions League after a long absence with this victory.
AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli says there were obviously problems at Manchester City that led to the club failing to retain the Premier League title and to the sacking of manager Roberto Mancini. Asked about Mancini's departure, he told CNN World of Sport: "I am not really surprised. When I was with him he was [.
Italian International Mario Balotelli has found his form again since returning to Milan in January. The young striker spent several years in Manchester making headlines for both footballing and non-footballing reasons, and that seemingly changed until now.
Just this week, Balotelli showed up at the Pala K karting cetner on the outskirts of Milan with his brand new £200,000 white Ferrari.

This year's Champions League will obviously go to Germany and it will be the seventh time a German club will be crowned the champions of Europe. Which makes one wonder, how many Champions League trophies have gone to the other top European football nations.
Mario Balotelli was booked during AC Milan's win against Torino at the weeked... by team-mate Sulley Muntari. The former Manchester City striker scored a late winner in the match and removed his shirt during the goal celebration. Seeing that the referee was about to dish out the inevitable yellow card to his team-mate, Muntari pinched [.
The rumor mill has been churning out blockbuster moves of late, linking some of world football's biggest stars to some of Europe's biggest clubs. The most recent outlandish transfer rumor involves Spain international Cesc Fabregas in a proposed move to the Serie A, with AC Milan and Inter Milan rumored to be suitors, according to Football-Italia (via Corriere dello Sport).

As the season is coming to an end, this year we saw both faces of AC Milan. We saw the good and the bad. The Rossoneri started the season off the wrong foot. This year AC had its worst start in 80 years. A team who is always a favorite was not reaching expectations; however, as the season developed the Rossoneri saw an incredible turnaround on their performances.
On Sunday, Palermo fell 1-0 to Fiorentina in a crucial match for top-flight survival. The result means that theRosanero will now be playing in Italy's second-tier professional league next season.
Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini, the man who bought the club in 2002 and helped bring them into the Serie A, has conceded that they will be a struggle to hold onto the likes of Josip Ilicic and many of the club's star players now that the club has fallen to Serie B for next season.
We've just noticed that AC Milan's pretty dreadful new gold third kit for next season has one redeeming a feature: a charming little pocket on the right breast...
How charming! What are the players going to be keeping in there, we wonder? Philippe Mexes will obviously have an emergency hair scrunchie, Balotelli will have somewhere handy to keep his fags and Sulley Muntari will probably be wanting to keep whatever he's using to repeatedly blackmail his way into Europe's biggest clubs close to his chest.

AC Milan striker Stephen El Shaarawy has expressed his desire to remain at the Rossoneri for the entirety of his career, despite interest from other clubs.
The young striker is under contract with Milan until 2018, but has been linked with moves away from the Serie A powerhouse. Already Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City have reported interest in acquiring the flashy striker.
So yesterday David Beckham said goodbye to soccer. This morning I woke up and checked the beIn sports app to see what the soccer schedule was this weekend and to my surprise the first four stories where tied to Golden Balls. I'm for covering his retirement but don't you think, that is a little overkill.
At last, the crown-prince of English sport, David Beckham has finally decided to call it a day on what has been an incredible career, spanning such mighty clubs as Man Utd, Real Madrid, AC Milan, LA Galaxy, PSG and, of course, Preston North End.
However, as well as possessing a mighty fine right foot, Mr.
Milan have released a statement on their official website debunking a salacious quote attributed to Mario Balotelli by news organizations far and wide. Spanish outlets AS and Marca started it all by publishing brief items that claimed the Milan striker said, "If Real Madrid comes back against Borussia Dortmund and make it to the final of the Champions League, I will let my girlfriend sleep with all the players.

The Rosanero lost 1-0 Fiorentina on Sunday to seal their demotion to Italy's second tier after nine seasons in Serie A. Their relegation has placed the futures of a number of star players in doubt, most notably Slovenia defender Ilicic.
