Real Madrid ban Vinicius Jr. from joining Brazil U20s for South American tournament

In spite of speculation that Real Madrid are interested in the talented winger, Craig Burley doesn't think Raheem Sterling is quite at the level of a Galactico.
Stevie Nicol sifts through potential transfers around Europe including Christian Eriksen to Real Madrid, Alvaro Morata's future with Chelsea and more.
The guys react to Eden Hazard's comments about playing for Real Madrid and wonder if Chelsea should begin to make preparations for his departure.

Real Madrid will not allow Vinicius Jr. to join Brazil's under-20 side for the South American Youth Championship in Chile in January and February, according to U20s coach Carlos Amadeu.

Lionel Messi's Argentina absence a 'pity for football' - Neymar

Brazil's Philippe Coutinho insists he wants to beat Argentina to claim bragging rights in what he views as one of the greatest rivalries in football.
Brazil and Manchester United's Fred insists he is honoured to be called up for the national team but insists he is looking forward to being back at the club despite recent negative results.
Liverpool and Brazil's Fabinho insists he is still trying to settle into life under Jurgen Klopp and that his demands in training and matches are extremely intense.

Brazil forward Neymar said he hopes Lionel Messi will return to play for Argentina as it is a "pity" he is missing international football at the moment.

Messi has taken a break from the Argentina squad since captaining them to the round-of-16 at the World Cup, where they were beaten by eventual champions France.

Argentina face Brazil in a friendly in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, and Neymar had hoped to be facing his former Barcelona teammate.

"It's a pity for football," Neymar was quoted as saying in...
