It’s time for your Weekly Dose of Futbol gossip! This week, the Real Madrid boys enjoy a dinner, Mesut Ozil’s lavish London home get its share of unhappy critics and Nasri enjoys his international ‘retirement’ in Ibiza.†


Real Madrid’s South American trio of James Rodriguez, Keylor Navas and Javier Hernandez were pictured enjoying a nice night out together after returning from international duties.

The stars, who were signed this summer, enjoyed supper in Madrid, also known as the city of dining late into the night and 4am churros!

After the meal, they posted up the photo on their social networks.

Hernandez wrote: ‘Gracias por la gran cena,’ or “Thanks for the great supper.”

Rodriguez’s Colombian side were defeated 0-1 by the Brazilians in Miami, but he still managed a smile for the cameras.

Oh well, it was only a friendly!


Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil and his girlfriend, German singer Mandy Capristo moved into their luxury mansion in the exclusive district of London last year after he signed for the Gunners.

However, it appears lifestyle of the couple has been criticized on social media and by both the English and German media.

The couple moved into their “casita”, which consists of six bedrooms, a kitchen, several bathrooms and a rental cost of $9,800. Their neighbours also include Madonna, Hugh Grant and Mick Jagger. It was also reported last year that the singer made a long list of demands for the mansion, and requested that they all be fulfilled before the couple moved in properly.

Capristo’s love for antique and luxury furniture, which she used to adorn her piano room in the house, was also publicised in prestigious magazines such as ‘Gala’ and ‘Bunte’.

Of course, the media’s job is always to normalize celebrities, which the German press tried to do in a scathing criticism of their lifestyle.

After the article was posted, Capristo posted up a photo on her social media platform showing herself eating chips on the London Tube. Oh hey, that’s the rest of us!


After prematurely retiring from the France National Team (at the age of 27, lovely!), Samir Nasri has been taking full advantage of the international breaks by vacationing in Ibiza.

The Manchester City playmaker announced his retirement from France after a fall out with manager Didier Deschamps saw him controversially omitted from Les Bleus’ 2014 World Cup squad this summer.

So, while his former teammates laboured to a 1-1 draw away to Serbia in their opening Euro 2016 qualifying game, Nasri passed his time enjoying the Spanish beach with his Brighton-born model girlfriend, Anara Atanes.

Atanes posted up the candid of the couple on a boat with the cute caption “Just one more kiss.”

In May, Anara probably didn’t help her boyfriend’s international cause one bit after publicly blasting Deschamps for leaving Nasri out of the squad. She tweetd “F*** france and f*** Deschamps! What a s*** manager!” in May.
