Euro Leagues: Ronaldo’s heart – Balotelli’s head

Steve Crossman is joined by Guillem Balague, Julien Laurens and James Horncastle to look at the big stories in European football.

Up for discussion is the fallout felt by the domestic game after the Brazilian FA triggered the FIFA rule which means players who didn’t travel to their World Cup qualifiers are now banned for 5 days – meaning they will miss out on club football this weekend.

One man who could be playing at the weekend is Cristiano Ronaldo. But did he actually want a move back to Manchester United? According to Guillem, Ronaldo was set to play for Manchester City.

Plus Mario Balotelli’s former Man City team mate Nedum Onuoha joins the pod to talk about the man, not just the football persona, after the striker has once again hit the headlines.
