  • As we reported yesterday, the arrival of Martin Ødegaard to Real Madrid is imminent. Although it has not been made official yet and his role in Real Madrid's roster is not totally clear, some of the numbers behind the agreement between Strømsgodset IF, Real Madrid and Ødegaard are being released by Dennis Schlüter, from the German newspaper Bild. Schlüter claims Real Madrid will pay €3.5 million, that could turn into €6.8 million if Real Madrid and Ødegaard fulfill certain goals in the next few years, and that the player will earn €2.25 million per year.

  • This should be taken with a grain of salt, as it comes from El Chiringuito, but Eduardo Inda, the former head of Marca, usually has good information (like in the Neymar case, for example). According to Inda, Real Madrid's interest on signing Marco Reus is true and they are going along the right lines to reach an agreement, but the player's injury-proneness really concerns Real Madrid's managing board, and that is why their medical staff are monitoring him to decide whether to sign him or not.

  • After becoming a member of the Italian Football Hall of Fame yesterday, Carlo Ancelotti spoke to José Félix Díaz, from Marca, and expressed his confidence on Real Madrid for the games to come as, according to him, everything is planned for the team to be at its competitive best when it counts.
