Balotelli, Reus, Fabregas and Henry star in new Puma commercial

To promote their highly anticipated evoPOWER boots, Puma produced this commercial which basically just involves Cesc Fabregas and Marco Reus destroying a bunch of stuff.

Cesc and Reus are both surrounded by teams of scientists as they test out their new cleats, which apparently provide them with enough power to shoot balls to the moon or through brick walls and stadium scoreboards (not to mention those silly targets). Meanwhile, Thierry Henry observes all the footage from an “undisclosed location,” seemingly impressed.

He then concludes that the powerful boot is ready for the game, and that it should be put to “the final test.” At this time, Mario Balotelli emerges as the final tester, but sadly — or mercifully — the ad comes to an end.

It should only be a matter of time, though, until we get to see what happens next (Prediction: Super Mario destroys a bunch of stuff).

Manchester United chase David Luiz

Manchester United are yet to make a meaningful breakthrough in the transfer market so far this season. Bids for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, Everton duo Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini have failed to materialize into transfers. The latest player to be linked with United is Chelsea defender David Luiz. The Brazilian doesn’t seem to fit into Jose Mourinho’s liking for defenders that stick to their position. If the Red Devils bid the reported £30 million, they would surely get their man.

Same old Barca: Players warm up with tiki-taka

Pep Guardiola may now ply his trade in Germany, but that doesn’t mean his tiki-taka has been lost on Barcelona. This Barca TV footage before the Catalans’ friendly against Malaysia shows the signature one-touch passing game that has been integral to Barcelona’s success in recent years.

After seeing this, Malaysia’s XI must have known what was coming for them. They lost the match 1-3. However, Barcelona also received some bad news, as MOTM Cesc Fabregas (goal and two assists) was forced off early with an injury.

Fabregas keen on Manchester United move

Barcelona may be telling the world that Cesc Fabregas is not for sale, but the player himself has apparently been telling some of his English friends that he would like a move to Manchester United.
