Ever since rumors were spread about a possible move from Inter Milan to sign Real Madrid star Kaka during the January transfer market, different figures have commented on this issue in statements given to the press.
The latest person to say his opinion about this saga is businessman Marco Tronchetti Provera, where he reportedly told Il Corriere dello Sport : “Yes, I want Kaka in Inter. The Brazilian is a great champion and has great quality.”
“Stay calm though, Moratti has said no.”
The Italian newspaper has added more fuel to this story’s fire by claiming that Mesut Ozil’s recent dazzling form will most certainly facilitate Kaka’s departure from the Bernabeu.
It is now a matter of “when” Jose Mourinho will be implemented as Real Madrid’s new coach, rather than a matter of “if” he will be the next coach to take the Bernabeu hot seat.
Reports from Spain claim that Mourinho has set forth 5 conditions for the Real Madrid hierarchy to make come true if they want Mourinho to take over from Pellegrini this summer. The conditions are as follows:
1) This sporting project should be consistent for the 4 years Mourinho has in his contract, and the hierarchy should not repeat the mistakes they did with the likes of Del Bosque and Capello.
2) Mourinho should be given the utmost freedom in terms of sporting issues and transfer issues.
3) The following players should be signed because of their quality, fighting spirit, and sacrifices they give on the field: Maicon, De Rossi, and Tevez.
4) Mourinho wants the Valdedebas to be renovated and covered just like a shelter, because he doesn’t want information to be leaked.
5) Mourinho wants his four assistants to be Portugese.
Real Madrid legend Guti is set to move to new pastures next season after telling fans that he will be leaving next season.
It appears that a bid from Al-Ittihad from Saudi Arabia is in the works. The first bid will be for 4 million euros, and if declined, the Saudis are ready to up the bid to 5 million euros.
Guti has a few other suitors, and will almost indefinitely be gone next season. The loss of a true legend.
Thanks for everything Guti, we will miss you!
After RealMadridZone published reports about Maicon saying he would consider following coach Mourinho to Real Madrid yesterday after the Champions League final match was over, we are now bringing you exclusive news over the transfer saga regarding Maicon.
We have learned from our private sources that a deal has been struck between Perez and Moratti, after a secret meeting they held before the Champions League final match in Madrid, and Maicon will be officially moving to Madrid for a fee between 20-25 million euros.
It is known that Mourinho is one of Maicon’s biggest admirers, and he would love to see the Brazilian occupy the right flank over at Real Madrid.
In the midst of a storm of rumors suggesting that Real Madrid playmaker Kaka will be sold in January, the club have reportedly decided not to let go of the midfield star.
According to reports from El Confidencial, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is willing to give Kaka a second chance to prove himself after he recovers from injury, and is not willing to sell the Brazilian before at least next summer.
Despite rumors that clubs like Inter Milan, AC Milan and even Sao Paulo are interested in the player’s services, the truth is that the only club that has registered concrete interest in the player is Chelsea, led by Carlo Ancelotti, Kaka’s former AC Milan coach.
Now that Inter Milan are dodging rumors that suggest the transfer of Brazilian playmaker Kaka to their ranks, other important clubs in Europe are beginning to position themselves as potential suitors for the Real Madrid star.
The latest club to join this transfer saga is Liverpool, according to English newspaper The Daily Mail.
The paper indicates that this move would serve as the first shock transfer that the new owners of the English club would complete upon their arrival.
Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is believed to be open minded on letting the star Brazilian go, especially after recruiting enough replacements during the summer.
With Real Madrid currently in the market for a third striker for the team, one of the most affordable options would be to buy back Adam Szalai.
Szalai was sold off to Mainz for 500,000 euros last summer, and according to AS, he could be bought back for a total of 1.5 million euros.
The 1.93 meter striker has scored three goals in the Bundesliga so far, and netted a hat-trick on Friday with the national Hungarian team.
Amidst reports suggesting Kaka’s departure from Real Madrid and heading back to Italy, Ronaldinho And Zanetti have stated that they would welcome back the Brazilian at the Italian capital.
“Kaka is a great champion who made history at AC Milan, and if he wants to come back here, it would be a pleasure for me to open the door for him.” said the former Barcelona star.
Meanwhile, Zanetti of Inter Milan said: “We’re talking about a great champion who would be welcomed by a group that is very competitive.”
“I know they are linking him with a possible move to Inter, as I read in the newspapers.”
“Champions are always welcome and know how to play with other champions, so I do not think that he would face any problems playing alongside Sneijder.”
Real Madrid are currently ahead of Barcelona in the La Liga standings, and sporting director Miguel Pardeza believes this situation can be sustained till the end of the season.
Speaking to the Spanish press, Pardeza said: “We are on the right track. Real Madrid always wants to win trophies and this year I think we can overcome Barcelona.”
“Mourinho is a great coach and I am sure he will do well at Real Madrid. He knows what he’s doing.”
“Pedro Leon’s situation is one of many that occur in football. We should not blow things out of proportion. I’m sure this issue will be solved very soon. We must focus on the sporting aspect, which is what really matters.”
“This club will always be at the highest level. Working at Real Madrid is reaching the top, and you have to give all you have while you are here.”
Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho recently sat down in an interview with Gol TV, where he discussed his team’s current situation.
“Marcelo was a player that I liked, but now I love him.”
“People are saying I want to buy another left back. Well, I do not want to buy another left back. Marcelo has enough defensive and offensive quality, and is growing as a player.”
“I prefer English football, because there the matches only last 90 minutes. In Spain and Italy, there are pre-matches and post-matches.”
“Iker Casillas is untouchable. He is this team’s leader.”
