Things have been a bit quiet om the transfer front, with many players still on holiday but I expect things to start happening now.
It looks like Jose Mourinho and Real Madrid will not be signing David Silva from Manchester City.The Spanish midfielder is close to signing a lucrative new five year deal with the English champions. He is thought to be going to receive £200,000 a week and has settled in Manchester. Silva is currently on holiday after winning Euro 2012 with Spain but has stated that he will sign his new deal when he returns.
If reports in Croatia are to be believed then Luka Modric of Tottenham will be playing in the white of Madrid this season. The 26-year old playmaker has expressed his desire for the move and the club are finally about to relent, apparently. The London club wanted around 50 million euros for will have to accept around 35 million from Madrid in order to stop Modric from moving to Spurs’ rivals Chelsea or Manchester United.
Madrid might beat Chelsea to another player this summer. With Madrid’s young right back Carvajal moving to the Bundesliga with Bayer Leverkeusen, Mourinho needs cover for Arbeloa. Maicon of Inter Milan was thought to be on the way to Chelsea but Mourinho has worked with the 30-year old Brazilian before and the player would prefer to join his old boss at the Bernabeu.
