Liverpool FC trumped to signing of Atletico Madrid defender

Liverpool FC trumped to signing of Atletico Madrid defender

Media reports say Theo had a medical with Real on Monday morning and that the capital rivals could hold talks over a transfer worth in the region of 30million euros (£25million) on Thursday - the day after meeting in the Champions League semi-final second leg.

Atletico needs to overturn a 3-0 loss from the first leg on Wednesday, but it wasn't too long ago that fans at the Vicente Calderon Stadium witnessed the type of feat that can put Atletico in the final.

Lucas said, "Every match against Atlético is hard because they are a great team, with great players".

"We already beat them by four goals in the Calderon, with Cristiano (Ronaldo) playing and all", Atletico midfielder Jorge "Koke" Resurreccion said after the first leg.

Jay Z signs 10-year deal with tour promoter Live Nation
Live Nation entered into a "360 deal" with his Roc Nation in 2008, which comes to an end in October, triggering a buy-sell event. And it's probably a good thing Jay-Z is building up a war chest, as wife Beyonce, 35, will soon give birth to twins.


Madrid had nine starters in 2015 who are still on the current team, including Toni Kroos, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Ronaldo, who scored a hat trick in the first leg last week to give his team a commanding advantage going into Wednesday's game.

"I only focus on what we have tomorrow".

Wednesday's clash will be the final European game at the Vicente Calderon because Atletico move to the new 67 000-capacity Wanda Metropolitano next season.

Captain Gabi said they wanted to repay the fans: "Once again they haven't left us behind".

Jason Blundell, Co-Studio Head of the video game company, also has high hopes for the game and its current improvements. The May 10 patch is 2.29 GB on PlayStation 4 as well as Xbox One and should be available to download now.


This is the last ever game at the Vicente Calderon, and it is nearly certainly the last Champions League semi-final that Antoine Griezmann, Diego Simeone and other Atletico players will play in before the team is broken up in the summer.

"We trust what we can do, I trust a lot in my players", the Atletico coach said at a press conference.

"It is hard but we need to keep believing".

A repeat of that performance would be just what Atletico needs this time. "After the last game I told the players it was very tough, that we're facing the best team in the world that scores in every game but we can do it".

ART giving longer life to young HIV sufferers
This is particularly true in the developing world, where the majority of HIV deaths occur because access to drugs is limited. The average life expectancy in the USA is now 79 years on average, or just under 77 for men and just over 81 for women.


"The campaigns, the tweets and all the things that (Atletico) want to generate are respectable, but it doesn't change anything for us". Los Rojiblancos have won 17 and drawn four of their 21 Champions League home games in the past four years, keeping 17 clean sheets.
