david-luiz-psgDavid Luiz was formally introduced to the press on Thursday as a Paris Saint-Germain player, after the French club overpaid by at least £25 million in signing the Chelsea defender.

The press did not care about the £50 million transfer fee, or how the deal has handicapped PSG from signing other players this summer. Instead all they wanted to ask about was Brazil‘s collapse in the World Cup this summer. After scoring a sensational winning free-kick in Brazil’s quarter-final victory over Colombia, Brazil imploded against Germany in the semifinals with Luiz drawing heavy criticism for his performance as he captained Brazil to a humbling 7-1 thrashing.

Radamel Falcao defends Monaco move - videoJust over a month ago, BeIn Sports broke the story that former Atletico Madrid and current Monaco star Radamel Falcao was heading back to Madrid to join the European Champions.

Falcao, who I consider to be the best center forward in the world, seemed like a natural fit for Madrid. While defenses were scared of Madrid’s BBC (Bale, Benzema, Cristiano) attack last season, they would have been terrified at the thought of facing Bale, Falcao and Ronaldo.

After a brief spell with Shanghai Shenhua, Drogba played for Galatasaray and even played against Chelsea in the Champions League at Stamford Bridge last season.
