Messi on target with two goals in charity game | FC Barcelona

With two goals, Messi led his team to a 5-3 win against a Mexican All Star team, with John Viáfara, the Brazilian Diego and Dani Osvaldo also chipping in with goals in a game staged to raise money for disabled children. More than 20,000 turned out to see the game and on three occasions fans ran onto the pitch to salute their hero- When one of them – a 12-year-old boy- was being escorted off the pitch by security men, Messi went over and signed the youngster’s shirt .

Valladolid, relegated from the top flight in 2010, won the first leg 1-0 in Madrid on Wednesday but were pegged back early in the second half in the return match. Javi Guerra then scored the equaliser on the night that ensured a 2-1 aggregate victory.

He told Marca: "They talk about the national team and Barcelona but there are also five players from Real Madrid. "I don't understand why they mix them because they are two distinct things. Spain isn't Barcelona. Barcelona were the champions of Spain. And I repeat, were the champions because now they are not."

"Of course, I love to hear things like that, but it just motivates me more to play better and show that I can be even more dangerous," he said ahead of the Group C encounter. "This is the match in which all of us can prove ourselves."

Big-spending La Liga side Malaga are reportedly lining up a move for AC Milan's Brazilian forward Robinho. The Brazil international only found the net six times and is reportedly interesting a number of teams. According to his agent, one of which is said to be cash-rich Malaga, although he surprisingly claims the Qatari backed club cannot afford his client. "I can confirm that Malaga like my client but, with all due respect, I think they cannot afford a player of that level," Juan Figer told Calciomercato.

Real Madrid are planning an audacious £30 million bid for David Silva as Jose Mourinho looks to add more flair to his championship-winning squad. 'Real Madrid is a big club as well and they were interested when he was at Valencia (the club he left to join City) but the deal was not possible,' he said. 'We are ignoring the plans of Real Madrid because he is very integrated at City and winning the Premier League has only increased his commitment to the club.'
