Despite those whispers yesterday that Sergio Ramos’ girlfriend was open to a move to England (well, they watch movies in English), Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez has poured cold water on the rumours saying that Ramos is integral to his plans.
Darn it. Just darn it.
Still, it is the strongest indication that we have had yet.
Someone else not moving is Jonny Evans. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says there’s no truth’ to that story.
Karim Benzema has been linked with a £40m move to Arsenal. Hello, Louis?
Staying with Real Madrid, well, they’re now ‘threatening’ to wait until next summer and get David de Gea on a free. No, you really did read that right.
The issue that remains is Real Madrid’s policy of signing a Galactico every year. De Gea fits that bill, and they already let Casillas go in a publicly acrimonious split. They may want to try and make it look like they were in control of the situation but this poor planning shows that they clearly weren’t.
Let’s hope that our learned friends in the press perceive it the same way.
The Daily Star say we’ve suffered a set back in our attempt to sign Edinson Cavani – saying that PSG won’t entertain the thought of a swap deal for Angel Di Maria. We’d prefer the player we’ve got, cheers…
