Felt like we needed a thread for this for all the soccer fans here to talk about the transfer window and where players are going.  

 

Neymar to Barcelona seems to be done though not official.  

 

Also heavy signs suggest Isco to Real Madrid, with possibly Cavani following him.  

 

Gareth Bale looks like he's staying a Spur after signing a promotion deal that makes him the face of the EPL next year.  

 

Falcao is going somewhere, the question is where?  My money is on Monaco.  

 

Rooney wants out, and I would be shocked if Cristiano Ronaldo was playing anywhere but Madrid next year despite some rumors that he could be heading to PSG or Chelsea.  

 

Finally one of the best young Strikers on the market Robert Lewandowski looks destined to leave Dortmund, but will the Yellow and Black sell him and Gotze to Bayern in the same season?

 

The Window opens up in just over a month and there will surely be a ton of movement all around Europe.  

 

Should be fun!!

Neymar to Barca is official, announced via his instagram and the Barca official twitter account.  Next big domino to fall is Lewandowski imo, and Arsene Wenger seems convinced he's been sold to Bayern.  Just dirty what Dortmund has done to their fans this year selling Gotze and Lewandowski to their biggest rivals.  If I was Klopp I would be moving on in my coaching career....

Sounds like both Manchester United and Chelsea are trying to bring Luka Modric back to England.  Chelsea rumored to offer 30 million, but I don't see that being enough with Real paying that just a year ago for him.

Good to hear about Bale... now if we could just pick up a LB, a creative midfielder for when Dimbele has any health issues, and one or two strikers that know how to actually score...

 

 

Things are looking up for my Spurs!

I mean he's ultimately bound for Real Madrid.  There's a 50 million buyout clause in his contract for next year, and because of Perez and Levy's working relationship Real will get first crack at him.  By this time next year 50 million for Bale will be an incredible steal....

 

My guess is Real buys Isco, Cavani and a Right and Center Back this year, lets di Maria play on the Right Wing another season and goes after Bale hard next Summer or possibly in the Winter if Tottenham is falling behind in the league standings (not that I think that will happen).  Then again Zidane seems to be obsessed with Gareth Bale, so it wouldn't totally shock me if they threw out a ridiculous offer Tottenham couldn't refuse.  It's not like money means anything to Madrid, just going to be very hard to move him out of the PL THIS Summer with him signing a marketing deal for next year....

Monaco continues their free spending, signing Ricardo Carvalho as a free agent.  Spent 70 million on Moutinho and Rodriguez, now Carvalho and Falcao is on deck.  They're nowhere near done from what I've read either....

Liverpool starts off by replacing Carra with Man City CB Kolo Toure. Solid move. There are rumors of a switch with Barca swapping GK Pepe Reina and F Christian Tello.

I'm feeling like Zidane is going to go all in on Bale.  Lots of talk coming from Gareth's side via his agent now, saying they would be "honoured to negotiate a move with Real Madrid".  Still think it's going to be tricky with the marketing deal, but feeling like they will just keep adding money till Tottenham can't say no.  No inside info to support this, just a gut feeling after reading quotes from Zidane and Perez about Bale.  Not to mention it's got to be driving Perez insane that Barca beat them for Neymar.  A summer transfer window that sees Bale and Cavani come in to Madrid would make Neymar an afterthought....

 

Either way it's criminal that a player as good as Gareth Bale isn't playing in the Champions League.

Bale is a reason Spurs even had a fighting chance for top 4 place. Dude is too good.

French radio station reporting Monaco has put in a 25.7 million offer to Real Madrid for Angel di Maria.  Don't see that happening unless they are supremely confident they're getting Bale.  di Maria while not exceptional, is a very good player on the wing, and is not expendable unless you're bringing in a much better player at his position....

Yep, which is why he won't be there more than a year tops.  I honestly think Real Madrid is just going to turn on the unlimited funds cheat and keep putting in offers till Levy and Tottenham cave....

Apparently Arsene is still Arsene. He fighting Fiorintina to drop asking price by like 2 million... Now Juve decided that they want Jovetic as well and now Arsenal might miss out. Arsene never learns...
