Ronaldinho is going to play in Flamengo now and it seems like Mourinho has found his replacement for Higuain and that fellow is.........Adebayor

He will be playing for madrid on loan till the end of the season

yeah i was surprised at the choice of adebayor too but its only for the final half of this season. perhaps jose wants a tall man up front.

the king's cup semi finals are tomorrow. there is a lot of heat going on between sevilla and madrid for the past few days.

Mourinho wants a classic number 9. A powerful guy that will play centrally win headers, hold the ball up, run in behind and score goals. that is why Real Madrid are going to sign Llorente from Bilbao in the summer.

In the meantime I cant think of any better available to them with the absence of Higuin and hamburg not selling Van Nistelrooy.

Mourinho is not a fan of Benzema and doesnt trust him withbeing a key part of the team, he also feels that Ronaldo's talents may be wasted by playing him centrally.

I think with Adebayor Madrid still have a good chance of winning the league.

Apparently Fabregas to Real Madrid now. I can't see this happening, but the story still caught my eye.

Of course it is! How dare you doubt my sources. I had a vision of such happenings. More than once, even!

I'm sure that story was the result behind Barca saying the Cesc deal is "dead" as of right now. I think they are just posturing for a better deal on him but they truly are in dire straights in terms of financing. The Qatar deal was in attempts to help the books break even, but the insane deals for Ibrah and Chrsky didn't help the situation. The Yaya money didn't last very long with the transfers of Villa, JM and IA coming in as well.

They'll link Cesc to whoever can afford him now, regardless of how accurate it is.

To be fair its all over the spaniish papers as well, and players like Victor Valdes have said "i can't see Cesc in white(real madrid)".. So its not completely bs.....its a big enough rumor, though i would agree with everybody that its highly unlikely....

Tommygun LMFAO at your little sig video :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Don't forget AC

Fabregas going to Barcelona isn't completely dead I don't think, even though they said they weren't going to go for him. I read a report that Manchester United could possibly go for Mascherano. So if they buy him, I could see Barcelona trying for Fabregas again.

Yeah, forgot about AC because he doesn't play much.

I think JM walked into Barca thinking he was going to take Busq out of his job...and well, that's not happening. That deal was by far the worst business they've done in the last year(+letting Ibrah go THAT cheap). They were spending money like they were printing it one day...and now they say they are "too broke" to go through with the DNA deal.

Imagine if Qatar didn't hop in to shore up the books....it could have been even worse.
