Real Madrid win the La Liga after five years
The quest for the Spanish title finally is fulfilled for Real Madrid as they were able to win the trophy this weekend. It was the 33rd title win for the Los Blancos but a very vital one given how brutally Barcelona have dominated the league in the last decade or so. Ronaldo helped Madrid secure a 0-2 victory against Malaga when a draw should have been enough for Madrid to clinch the title. Barcelona came from behind to register a 4-2 win against Eibar, but it wasn’t fruitful enough to help them win the title. Atletico Madrid and Sevilla qualify for the Champions League. Lionel Messi ended with the league’s top scorer with 37 goals, teammate Luis Suarez with 29 goals and Cristiano Ronaldo with 25 goals. It has been quite a remarkable campaign for Zinedine Zidane since acquiring the managerial position at Madrid last January.
Manchester United win the Europa League final
With a week to forget in Manchester, the city finally has some good news. United, desperately needing the win in the finals to qualify for the Champions League, managed to do so on Wednesday after a rather convincing 2-0 win against a young Ajax side in Stockholm. United took an early lead courtesy a deflection from a Paul Pogba shot. It was lucky, but United built upon it, only to double the lead in the second half through Armenian midfielder Henrik Mkhitaryan’s flick from a corner. Ajax posed a very little threat after that, as Jose Mourinho’s men managed to see out a rather comfortable win and made sure the club is where they belong. It was the only trophy missing in the club’s cabinet and possibly the best way to end the season for the Red Devils.
Griezmann set to leave Atletico Madrid this summer
It is a disheartening fact to hear for the Atletico fans how Griezmann has responded lately to the rumours linking him with a move away from Spain. The French superstar has been linked with a move away to Manchester United, and in wake of this rumour, he recently responded saying he has 6 out of 10 chances that he will join the Manchester club this summer. There are a number of clubs after him including Bayern Munich, PSG and other teams in the United States and England. Griezmann has stated that he has come to a point in his career where he wants to win trophies and is looking to join a club where he can achieve that. It is great news for United and given now that they have qualified for the Champions League, the chances of a move happening are more than likely.
