    DAVID BECKHAM has been hailed as the only Englishman who could have played for Brazil by former Real Madrid teammate Ronaldo Nazario. The pair spent four years together at the Bernabeu as part of Los Blancos fabled Galacticos era that won LaLiga back in 2007. 1 David Beckham and Ronaldo formed part of Real Madrid's fabled GalacticosCredit: Reuters And the two, who are both on lockdown with their families, spent an afternoon on Instagram live reminiscing on their history together. According to Ronaldo, who hit an incredible 83 LaLiga goals in just 127 games, he jokingly revealed that he should be thanking Beckham for his pin-point deliveries. He said: “For me, you were one of the best of all time in the centre, the way you touch the ball, could put the ball wherever you want, and without looking at me the ball would come. “I should thank you for many balls you gave to me. "You were amazing." I remember you turning around to me and saying that the Brazil squad believed that if there was any English player...
    ARSENAL are reportedly in agreement with Juventus over a loan-to-buy deal for midfielder Arthur Melo. The Serie A side are keen to shift the high-earning star to help lighten their wage bill ahead of the new season. 1Juventus want rid of Melo's wages and the Gunners are 'making strides' in transfer discussionsCredit: Rex Melo, 25, was thought to be heading to North London to help fill Mikel Arteta's midfield woes in January.

    ARSENAL are in the running to sign Arthur Melo, and this transfer is being wished for by none other than his current club Juventus, reports claim. Juventus want to offload Arthur, 25, to help them lighten their wage bill ahead of the new season. 2Arthur has been left behind from Juventus' pre-season tourCredit: Getty 2Mikel Arteta wants to sign another central midfielderCredit: Getty And following the return of Arsenal's interest in the player, who they failed to land in January, the Old Lady are pushing for a deal. The Brazilian midfielder has even been left out of the squad's pre-season tour owing to them trying to push a move through rather than any physical ailments, according to La Republicca. Another Italian outlet, Tutto Juve, has backed this up by saying the Bianconeri are willing to allow him to leave on loan to lighten their wage bill. The return of Paul Pogba to the club has also seen Arthur's place in the squad pushed down further. READ MORE ON ARSENALGUNNERS LATEST William Saliba has 'AGREED' a new deal, Gunners...
    Outrage is building across Brazil as a result of the latest bout of apparent police brutality after a mentally ill Black man died inside the trunk of a police car. Protests have grown violent after people blocked roads and started fires. Video of the incident shows Genivaldo de Jesus Santos pushed to the ground and handcuffed and then lifted and stuffed inside the hatchback of a clearly marked Brazil Federal Highway Police car where he died after a tear gas canister was thrown inside. “The images are just shocking,” Samira Bueno, executive director of the nongovernmental Brazilian Forum on Public Safety told the Washington Post. “He’s a mentally disturbed person, and it’s the story of you using the vehicle as a gas chamber to immobilize a person.” The man, 38, can be seen struggling with his legs kicking and then growing limp as thick white clouds pour out of the car. The man’s wife, Maria Fabiana dos Santos told local media that her husband was murdered. “I don’t even call it fatality,” she said. “That was really a crime. They...
    CHELSEA have added forgotten man Kenedy to their Champions League squad. The Brazilian winger takes Lewis Baker's spot following the Englishman's free transfer to Stoke after 17 years with the Blues. 2Kenedy could feature in the Champions League for Chelsea this seasonCredit: Getty 2Lewis Baker, left, permanently joined Stoke in the January transfer windowCredit: PA That was the only change to the defending champions' official Uefa list as they prepare for the knockout stages. Chelsea face Lille in the Champions League last 16 with the first leg at Stamford Bridge on February 22. And that could see Kenedy make his first appearance for the club since January 17, 2018 - almost 1,500 days ago. The Blues recalled Kenedy from his loan spell at Flamengo last month because of a series of injuries within Thomas Tuchel's squad. He was an unused sub in Saturday's FA Cup win over Plymouth but with Ben Chilwell and Reece James still out, his versatility could see him used as emergency wing-back cover. Kenedy, who turns 26 today, admitted his shock at the...
    Last week Atletico Mineiro clinched their first Brazilian league title for 50 years with a fearsome strike force of Hulk and Diego Costa. This has reminded older supporters of the centre forward from their previous triumph back in 1971 - one of the great characters of the Brazilian game, and a player whose deeds and life story deserves a wider audience. 3Hulk and Diego Costa celebrate Atletico Mineiro's Brazilian league triumphCredit: Reuters 3Atletico Mineiro fans have been reminiscing about former striker Dario Dario was part of the Brazil squad that won the 1970 World Cup. But though he warmed up once, he was never called upon. He played just six full games for his country between 1970 and 73, and his only goals for Brazil came in unofficial matches against club sides. It has been unkindly suggested that he was only in the squad because the president of Brazil demanded his inclusion. This view shows a glaring lack of respect for coach Mario Zagallo. Because it would have been insanity not to have him in the squad. He would never...
    Brazil’s health minister tested positive for the coronavirus Tuesday, just hours after attending the United Nations General Assembly. Marcelo Queiroga is the second member of President Jair Bolsonaro’s delegation to the United Nations to test positive. The first was a member of the advance team that arrived before the president. Queiroga says he will quarantine for 14 days in New York City. Video shows Queiroga shaking hands with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday, the day he tested positive for the virus. The Brazilian official is wearing a mask, as he said he was the entire day; the British prime minister is not. President Joe Biden, whom Johnson later met with at the White House, spoke at the U.N. the same day; it is as yet unclear if anyone in the U.S. delegation came into close contact with Queiroga or will need to be tested. Bolsonaro himself, who contracted COVID-19 in July 2020, has refused to be vaccinated and promoted unproven treatments for the respiratory illness. The coronavirus has devastated Brazil, killing 591,000 people, according to Johns Hopkins...
    GABRIEL MAGALHAES has been ruled out of the Tokyo Olympics with a knee injury. The Arsenal defender, 23, was called up to be part of the Brazil squad for the upcoming Games. 3Gabriel has withdrawn from Brazil's Olympic squad due to tendonitis in his right kneeCredit: Getty But the Brazilian FA confirmed he left the team's training camp in Sao Paulo on Tuesday when it became clear he would not be fit to compete at the Olympics. Gabriel arrived at the Brazilian base last Thursday and complained of trouble in his right knee after his first training session. After checks, the doctors revealed he had tendonitis. A statement said: "Gabriel started physiotherapy follow-up and was released from all strength exercises. The pains continued. "The athlete then underwent an MRI examination on Monday, when tendonitis in the right knee was detected, with joint swelling." Andre Jardine will confirm a replacement in the coming days. But Gabriel played down the magnitude of the problem as 'nothing serious' in welcome news for Arsenal fans less than six weeks before...
