Valencia seal signing of former Barcelona target Rodrigo Caio

first_img Upd. at 21:33 Valencia have completed the signing of Rodrigo Caio from Sao Paulo for around 16.5 million euros.  The initial fee is reported to be in the region of 12.5m euros, with the other four million euros coming in potential add ons.  CEST Sport EN 13/06/2015center_img After completing the permanent signing of Benfica’s Andre Gomes earlier in the week, Los Che moved quickly to tie up Caio, a 21-year-old who is represented by Jorge Mendes.  Caio can play as a central defender or as a holding midfielder and was watched by Barcelona last summer. Barça’s then technical secretary Albert Valentin spent time in Brazil running the rule over Caio, but nothing ever came from his trip to South America.  Instead, the Catalan side banked on experience, moving for Jeremy Mathieu and Thomas Vermaelen instead.last_img read more

The worst Cristiano Ronaldo since 2010-11

first_img His next test in La Liga will be against rivals Atletico, at the Vicente Calderon next weekend. Sport EN Cristiano Ronaldo did not score for Real Madrid in the 0-0 draw with Malaga and the Portuguese hasn’t found the net in four of the five La Liga games this season. He still has five goals, but all of them came in a 6-0 win over a limp Espanyol side at the Cornella El Prat.  Against Malaga he tried to score time and time again, but could not. His discontent at being unable to beat Kameni was tangible. He tried to score an incredible 14 times, without success.  27/09/2015center_img CEST Upd. at 14:17 Against Sporting, Granada, Athletic and Malaga he has been incapable of finding the net. His run reminds us of the 2010-11 season where he had his worst goalscoring start as a player of Madrid, scoring three times in six weeks of La Liga. last_img read more
