  • Arsène Wenger wants to land Karim Benzema or Ángel Di María. The gunners have not signed a top player so far and they reportedly have the money to do so. The BBC reports that the French coach would be willing to spend more than 45M€ on Benzema.
  • Real Madrid will play the testimonial game for Raúl today (22:30 CET). Illarramendi, Alonso, Varane and Khedira will miss the game. Raúl will play one half for Real Madrid.
  • Susana Guasch wrote a ridiculous piece that puts words in Juanito's mouth (even though he's obviously not able to do such thing) to defend Iker Casillas' cause. This is not helping Casillas neither.
