  • Although Real Madrid have been linked to Lucas Silva or Cristoph Kramer in this winter transfer period, Carlo Ancelotti denied his interest on signing any midfielder right now some days ago. We will for sure hear about them next summer, but the main candidate could be Casemiro, as one could deduce from Butragueño's words to the Portuguese newspaper O Jogo: "We are delighted with his performance. We are following his games at Porto".

  • But there's another candidate: Paul Pogba could be the next Galáctico, or that is what Tuttosport claim. Motivated by the player's agent words, who says that he will not remain in Italy for too long, the Italian newspaper claim that Real Madrid would be willing to prepare a huge offer to sign one of the greatest midfielders in Europe.

  • Real Madrid reportedly continue to try to expand their academy, as they are claimed to be interested in signing Augusto Batalla, a River Plate 18-year-old goalkeeper, who is currently training with the U-20 Argentina National Team to prepare the South American Championship. Humberto Grondona, the Argentinian U-20 head coach, has stated that Real Madrid have already placed a bid on Batalla and that we will know if he will join Real Madrid during the week.

  • And although this is not any rumor yet, get ready to read hundreds of tweets claiming that Falcao will join Real Madrid, as his agent Jorge Mendes has reportedly said that "he will play in one of the best clubs in the world next season, whether that is Manchester United or not".

  • And the Tweet of the Day award goes to... Nicholas Rigg!
