Late Micheal Jackson Fathered Fenerbache Star

The foundations of music and sport were shaken, when it emerged that popular Portuguese footballer Nani is the son of popular American singer, Michael Jackson.
The king of pop, Late Micheal Jackson confirmed that Nani (aka Luís Carlos Almeida da Cunha), is the child he had formerly disowned in his 1983 hit song, Billy Jean. In a statement today, Jackson said “Billy Jean was my lover, and the kid is my son. And she wasn’t like a beauty queen from a movie scene, I made that up, she was a five dollar doxy.” Jackson claims he intends to rerecord the song, to reflect this new admission. “I need to put things right,” he said.

Nani has refused to comment thus far, but sources close to the greasy winger (thought to be his teammates John O’Shea and Carlos Tevez) say he is “chuffed” and “can’t wait to meet his creepy new dad”.

Michael Jackson had a spell with OSC Nice between his Thriller and Bad albums, the latter of which is thought to be about his short time as a professional footballer. His old manager, Jean Sérafin, said “Michael was a really bad midfielder.”

Despite ignoring Nani since his birth, Jackson did actually pick the boy’s name. “Billy Jean just called me and asked me to pick a name – I didn’t want to talk to her, so I just said to call it Nanny so she would leave me alone. I like nannies,” said Jackson.

Jackson’s other son, Blanket, is thought to be a keen sportschild, and Michael hopes that meeting his big brother might help Blanket overcome his fear of reality. “I can’t wait for Nani to meet Blanket – maybe playing with Nani will give him the confidence to take of his veil the next time he plays soccer.”

It is understood that each time Nani does a somersault Earth Song will be played over the PA system.

May his soul rest In perfect peace

Nani usess his mother’s surname and not his father which is Jackson.

Costa Admits He Wanted Atletico Madrid Return

Chelsea striker, Diego Costa, has said he was eager to move back to Atletico Madrid, after a difficult year with the Blues last season.

The 27-year-old moved to Stamford Bridge from Atletico for £32million in 2014 and enjoyed a fine debut campaign, when he won the Premier League under Jose Mourinho.

However, he was reportedly unhappy at Chelsea at the end of last season and was considering a return to Spain.

Costa admits that Atletico were ready to re-sign him and he was also happy to go back, but a deal could not be agreed.

“We all knew the possibility existed for me to return to Atleti but it was not to be because of minor details,” Costa told AS.

“I thank the Atleti fans and [coach Diego Simeone] for his trust.

“Now I’m at Chelsea and I’m happy there. I already started the season with them. I wish Atleti a good season just like last and that they win titles. I was enthusiastic about returning, I cannot deny it.”
Costa has scored 34 goals in 56 Premier League appearances for Chelsea.

Real Madrid Star Is Not Leaving The Club

Isco has dismissed the possibility of making a last minute move away from Real Madrid, insisting he is staying put.

The midfielder’s future has been the subject of a lot of speculation throughout the summer, with even Zinedine Zidane not ruling out a transfer away for the Spain international.

Tottenham have been heavily linked with Isco, who has been unable to nail down a regular spot in the Madrid first-team.

Reports suggested the Premier League side were preparing a late swoop for the 24-year-old,with manager Mauricio Pochettino said to have been in touch with him.

AC Milan Make Inquiry About Cesc Fabregas, Interested In Signing Him Today

AC Milan have enquired about signing Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas but he will be staying at Stamford Bridge.

Cesc Fabregas has played only 12 minutes of Chelsea’s opening three Premier League games this season.

Reports in the national press subsequently said Fabregas was of interest to huge clubs such as Real Madrid, Juventus, and former club Barcelona.

But following the win over the Hammers, Conte insisted Fabregas had a future at Chelsea and Sky sources understand the 29-year-old is keen to prove his worth under the Italian.

Conte said:-

“Cesc is Chelsea’s player, and I’m happy about him, with his attitude and behaviour.

He must know from before that when we are a great team like Chelsea it can happen that I have to take a decision before the game to choose a starting XI.

“That can happen that Fabregas is not in the starting XI, but it can happen for all the players. It’s important to see always the right attitude. Because we must fight this season and it’s important to stay together in every situation.”
