Barcelona have announced the signing of Memphis Depay, who will join the club once his contract at Lyon comes to an end on June 30.

 

 

This is a case of third time lucky for Barcelona, as they tried to lure the 27-year-old to the Camp Nou last summer and again in January, but they have now got their man.

Memphis’ desire to sign for Barcelona was a key factor in making the deal happen, as the Catalan club also faced competition for his signature from Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

New Record: Ronaldo Becomes First Person To Reach 300m Instagram Followers

Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo may be known as a record goalscorer, but the Portuguese icon has also claimed another accolade – the first person to reach 300m Instagram followers.

The 36-year-old is a long way clear of second-placed Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson on 246m, with Ariana Grande third (244m) on the list.

 

 

Meanwhile, Ronaldo’s football rival, Barcelona and Real Madrid’s Lionel Messi, is 81m followers adrift on 219m, sitting seventh in the overall table.

 

 

In fact, the only account on the social media platform which has more followers is the official Instagram account itself on 397m.

 

 

It comes after Ronaldo broke another record in Portugal’s 3-0 win over Hungary, with his two goals moving him past France’s Michel Platini as the all-time record European Championship goalscorer with a total of 11.

 

 

Overall, Ronaldo has 106 goals for Portugal and trails only Iran’s Ali Daei (109 goals) for the most international goals in history.

 

 

Meanwhile, Portugal head coach Fernando Santos has said his side cannot rely on Cristiano Ronaldo to win matches single-handedly ahead of a tantalising Euro 2020 showdown with Germany.

 

 

While Santos is delighted to have 36-year-old Juventus forward Ronaldo at his disposal, he is eager to ensure his entire squad remain ready to contribute.

 

 

“I have to motivate every single player, not just Ronaldo for instance. Portugal’s value is based on our team,” Santos told a press conference.

 

 

“It’s great to have Ronaldo on our side, we’re very proud to have him but Cristiano alone cannot win a match.

 

 

“We will want everyone to be motivated: the starting 11 and those who are brought on.

 

 

“It’s important to be motivated but also focused. The will to win is very important, what comes from inside, from within from your soul, that’s what creates this amazing desire to win.

 

 

“We have to want to win but we have to know how to win because one without the other is useless.”

 

 

Victory for Portugal at the Allianz Arena would guarantee a place in the knockout stages, while leaving their opponents on the brink of elimination.

Christian Eriksen will be fitted with an ICD – a heart defibrillator – after he suffered a cardiac incident in the match against Finland, Denmark have confirmed.

 

 

The Inter star fell to the pitch unconscious on the second match day of Euro 2020 and had to be resuscitated before then being transported to hospital.

 

 

Now, after a series of tests carried out by medical specialists, it has been announced that Eriksen will have a potentially life-saving implant installed.

 

 

What has been said?
National team doctor Morten Boesen has been in contact with the cardiac specialist at Rigshospitalet and Eriksen, and this is the latest status: “After Christian has been through different heart examinations it has been decided that he should have an ICD (heart starter). This device is necessary after a cardiac attack due to rhythm disturbances.

 

 

“Christian has accepted the solution and the plan has moreover been confirmed by specialists nationally and internationally who all recommend the same treatment.

 

 

“We encourage everybody to give Christian and his family peace and privacy the following time.”

 

 

Has Eriksen spoken since the incident?
Yes. Taking to social media on Tuesday, the attacking midfielder wrote: “Big thanks for your sweet and amazing greetings and messages from all around the world. It means a lot to me and my family.

 

 

“I’m fine – under the circumstances. I still have to go through some examinations at the hospital, but I feel okay.

 

 

“Now, I will cheer on the boys on the Denmark team in the next matches. Play for all of Denmark.”

 

 

Will he be able to play football again?
It is not yet known whether Eriksen will be able to play football again.

 

 

It is not unheard of, though, as the example of German forward Daniel Engelbrecht showed.

 

 

Engelbrecht collapsed on the pitch while playing for Stuttgart Kickers in July 2013, having suffered from a heart attack.

 

He was then fitted with a defibrillator and returned to the pitch in November of 2014 after 17 months of recovery.

 

However, Engelbrecht suffered from more heart issues down the line and hung up his boots in 2018 to concentrate on a career in coaching.

 

In terms of players still in the game, Ajax and Netherlands star Daley Blind continues to play at the highest level after having an ICD implanted in December 2019.
