Episode 871: Ronaldo Looking For Love, Serene Juve, Man City’s Shock And Awe, Corbyn’s Istanbul
Eoin is puzzled by the Real Madrid fans’ lack of appreciation for Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been talking nostalgically about his time in Manchester, where fans of a different mentality didn’t whistle him all the time.

There is also talk about the transfer window closing for Atletico Madrid, and opening for everyone else. Manchester City intend to blow away their rivals with a shock and awe display of financial muscle.

Manchester City have agreed a deal with Benfica for the signing of goalkeeper Ederson Moraes.
