SPANISH FOOTBALL SPORTS paper "Marca" run a front cover story today that basically says that the REAL MADRID Football Manager & Coach José Mourinho, who is back at work, has expressed to Club President Florentino Perez that he is satisfied & happy with the all the new signings.
In fact, according to the Sports paper, Mourinho believes that squad has been compensated, strengthened & has the equilibrium needed to confront the new competitive 2011-2012 season. So happy is Mourinho that he has said ( according to "Marca" ) that no more signings are needed.
Real Madrid has incorporated new players Sahin (Borrusia) , Altintop (Bayern), Coentrao (Benfica), Varane (Lens) & Callejon (RCD Espanyol).

From another news source comes some complementary information. Spanish online site "El Confidencial" backs the above story & adds that REAL MADRID wishes to put the "cherry" on the cake. The possible last signing will be Brazilian 19 year old promise from Santos NEYMAR.
This source is headed by Spanish Sports journalist José Feliz Diaz, whose reputation is prestigious & can be trusted. According to the paper, Neymar said yes to REAL MADRID weeks back & SANTOS is on the verge of accepting the 35M€ + extra payments via incentives at any moment. The paper says categorically that Neymar will be a Real Madrid player straight after Brazil finishes with its participation in the COPA AMERICA.
Although Neymar speaks publicly of wanting to stay & play the "Clubs World Championship" with Santos in December, privately the players has voiced his desire to go to Real Madrid & begin his 6 year contract at 5M€ per season.
This basically rules out Atletico de Madrid star SERGIO AGUERO, who has seen his "dream" of playing at Real Madrid turn into a nightmare because Atletico de Madrid owner Gil Marin refuses to sell to the maximum city rival. In fact , Gil Marin has told Real Madrid President Perez not to put him in a delicate situation with the Atletico fans which he claims have threatened him with violence.
Whatever the story, the truth or lies, Neymar is very, very close while Aguero gets further away everyday. BUT, the signing/transfer season is open up on till the 31st of August & anything & everything is possible. Thus I don´t rule out anything at all, even Aguero signing with Real Madrid. Stay tuned!
