SPANISH FOOTBALL is immense theses days with signing possibilities, transfer rumours & all sorts of gossip coming from Italy, France, the UK, Brazil, Argentina & of course, the Spanish Sports papers. With all this happening, I thought I give readers a quick summary of things being published today. This way you get a "snap shot" of how things are being reported in Spain. 

Real Madrid 2011
Brazilian player NEYMAR

Latest is that REAL MADRID is very close in securing the services of 19 year old Brazialian "wonder kid" NEYMAR. According to Spanish Sports paper "Marca", Real Madrid & Neymar have agreement which has been published to be a six year contract at 5M€ per season, plus another million€ if he wins the "Golden Ball". SANTOS asks for 45M€ to allow the transfer to happen which is steep,  & may well be negotiated further as the player insists that Real Madrid is his chosen Club.

Alexis Sanchez

The almost certain signing of UDINESE 23 year old Chilean International forward ALEXIS SANCHEZ by Barça has hit a couple of problems. Firstly, FC Barcelona & Spanish U-21 International player JEFFRAN has said NO to Udinese & does not wish to be part of the FC BARCELONA offer of 28M€ + a player offer to the Italian Club for Sanchez. Secondly, MANCHESTER CITY has re-entered the picture to offered 40M€ which eclipses the Barça offer.

Latest is that Sanchez is giving Udinese an ultimatum: FC Barcelona or nowhere. 

Spanish Soccer
FC Barcelona player Bojan

Italian Club AC ROMA has "come" to an agreement with FC BARCELONA player BOJAN. There is still some "fine print" to be discussed but new Roma Coach Luis Enrique ( ex Barcelona B Coach & player ) seems to have convinced the player that he will be playing more in Italy than staying at Barcelona. The speculated transfer price is 10M€ & a five year contract, although Barça have not confirmed anything & maybe attempting to get more than the 10M€ offered.

Lastly, ATLETICO DE MADRID midfielder JOSE ANTONIO REYES has said NO to Turkish Club GALATASARAY ( for now).

Hope this gives you a quick picture. Stay tuned as things change rapidly!
