OMG! NBC reports that Manchester United agreed on deals for Toni Kroos and Arjen Robben.

Deal believed to be around £65m.

 

Not sure if NBC jumped the gun here. Hearing Kroos has agreed and the deal will cost £20m. No way Robben fetches £45m.

Rumors reporting Liverpool in for Pedro, but I strongly doubt it happens.

Pedro is average. Di Maria is a better player.

Arsenal director said Arsene Wenger is backed by the board to buy any player he wants except Messi, Ronaldo and Bale.  Arsenal board believes that Arsenal is 1-3 good players away from challanging for EPL title and CL.  If Arsenal could just get Fabregas and Cavani... my world.

Arsene Wenger "told by Arsenal officials to consider buying Febregas" this summer.

 

Seriously. Why have a manager if he can't even think for himself?

Kroos supposedly no longer going to United. Strootman not going. And apparently Fabregas won't go.

I keep hearing all sorts of figures. Yesterday it was £45m.

 

£30m for Cesc isn't bad.

Nope, not at all. Arsenal is looking for CM to replace Arteta who will probably be sold in few months.

I'm also hearing Micah Richards might be joining Arsenal.

Well, this isn't looking good for Real.

Benzema, Ronaldo and Di Maria have minor/major injuries, and Xabi and Pepe are completely out. It appears our Decima hopes ride on our young stars. Bale, Isco, Carvajal, Varane, Illarramendi and Morata are gonna have to step up.

£50 million being branded around in England!

A decent player, but no more than £20 million.

July 1st is the day I can't wait for, that's when contracts officially run out and many clubs announce their new signings.

With less than 24 hours to go, I'm both scared and excited about Real's potential 10th title. The last time Los Blancos won a European title, I was in my pre-teens. I don't know who the hell will start (Benzema was gonna start and Pepe was gonna sit yesterday, and today it's the opposite) but this team has overcome obstacles all year long and we somehow made it to The Final even when the odds were against us.

Bring it on, Atletico.

My gut says Benz and Pepe are both in the starting xi tomorrow. They'll leave everything they've got out on the pitch tomorrow night in order to achieve la decima. I don't see any chance Pepe sits if he's even remotely close to fit. Same for Benz.

I hope so! Even if they're not at 100%, we need them both. Losing Xabi was a big blow already.

It makes me wonder what formation Ancelotti will go with. Rumors are flying around that we're going with the 4-4-2 but that doesn't fit into our counter-attack style.

4-4-2 is what I expect tbh. Could always shift it into a 4-2-3-1 or another attacking formation with a substitution in the second half. I expect the first 25-30 minutes to be a feeling out period honestly. The stakes are higher than they've ever been in a match between the two clubs, and I think both coaches will be cautious at least at first to not leave their back four vulnerable.

Phrases I learned from reading English football forums this year: howler, plastics, "get in!", and my personal favorite, FFS.

Varane and Khedira look so uncomfortable. Understandable, but you've got to get one of them out.
