ATLETICO DE MADRID TARGETS PSG CAVANI

News out of France lets us in on a possible interest from Atletico de Madrid for Paris St Germain Uruguayan forward Cavani. The French source "L'Equipe" goes further & writes that the signing of Cavani is a prerequisite of current Atletico Coach Simeone for him to renew his contract with the Club.

The French source also writes that it was fellow Uruguayan National Team collegue & Atletico defender Godin who made contact to sound out personally Cavani. The feedback seems to have been positive to which the Spanish Club has began the long process of contacts with PSG & player.

Initially, Cavani has some signing obstacles for Atletico Madrid:
  • Salary of around 10M€ per season,
  • Transfer price which could be around 60M€.
To reach these figures the Spanish Club could consider selling Mandzukic, Arda &/or Koke. These last statements are purely speculative as we are talking about key players.  

Stay tuned, lets see if this develops any further in coming months.

PORTO PUTS 30M€ PRICE ON DANILO FOR REAL MADRID

A while back it was mentioned here that the big Spanish Football Clubs were following Porto 23 year old Brazilian right back Danilo . Today we jump from speculation & into the news published by Spanish Sports paper "AS" that Real Madrid has "pole position" after the player expressed his willingness to make the jump over to La Liga.

This affirmation by the player has apparently lead Porto to put a starting price of around 30M€ for a possible transfer. The player will also do his part by not renewing his contract at Porto thus making his sale an incentive for the Portuguese Club.

Staying at Porto, Real Madrid on loan player Casemiro is having a wonderful season & it is commented that Real Madrid may call the midfielder back for next season. However, the Portuguese Club wants the loan of Casimero extended another season.

Will this desire by Porto be used by Real Madrid in their negotiations for Danilo? Stay tuned!

REAL MADRID & LIVERPOOL FC SHARE SOME COMMON INTERESTS

Luciano Vietto is exploding this season in Spanish Football. The 21 year old Argentine forward with Villarreal is scoring goals & has become an important piece in his teams set-up. The youngsters 2º half performance against Real Madrid last Sunday caught the eye of Club Directives, so much so, that the players agent Jorge Cysterpiller has gone public saying that Real Madrid likes his player.

Liga 2015

The youngster has a contract release clause of 10M€, relatively accessible for the big Clubs like Real which is combing the market for a player to complement-substitute Karim Benzema. The current player doing this at Madrid, "Chicharito", is not up to the standards desired by the technical team. Vietto may enter the profile that is desired.

However, Real Madrid is not the only Club following Vietto. From England news comes that Liverpool FC is very keen on the young Argentine & could be a serious competitor in a "signing war"

Liga soccer  2105

Staying at Real Madrid news from England hints that Liverpool FC has Asier Illaramendi in its agenda for next season. The young midfielder has lost the confidence of Coach Ancelotti in favour of new signing Lucas Silva & may have the door open to find new opportunities. 

In both cases very early days still & both are just speculation. Will be interesting to keep an eye on developments in the coming months.

REAL MADRID | SOME HUMOUR FROM BARCELONA

Some innocent humour out of the city of Barcelona going viral, precisely from their Sports paper "Mundo Deportivo", after the Liga slip yesterday by Real Madrid drawing 1 - 1 with Villarreal (also lovely called "The Yellow Submarine").

Humour

The cartoon says it all, the mentioned result allows FC Barcelona to close the points gap on the Liga table to just two points. The upcoming "clasico" - FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid - scheduled for the 22nd of March begins to heat up early. The winner of this clash may well have the Liga title almost in the bag. Meanwhile, lets appreciate the sense of humour.

PEDRO LOOKS MORE OUT THAN IN AT FC BARCELONA

Speculation concerning the future of Spanish International & FC Barcelona winger Pedro have been ongoing & today are back in the Sports media. Local papers are picking up the vibes from British press that states that Manchester United & Chelsea have shown interest & are considering targeting the winger for next season

FC Barcelona

The player has fallen into a secondary role at Barçwith in the incorporation of Luis Suarez. Pedro has commented that he is a Barça player & if any offers do appear that he will study them jointly with the Club. The novelty today is that FC Barcelona has apparently put a market price on the winger, 30M€.

The player privately has his own personal preference, Arsenal FC. Last season the English Club made "calls" to get the winger over to London, calls to which Pedro ignored. Will Arsenal FC call again?

Stay tuned, the future of Pedro looks more out of Barcelona than in.
