Cesc, Villa, Ronaldo, Aspas, Suarez... Twitter summer holiday start here. See you soon! (1 of 2)
So the summer has arrived and the sun is out! Time to take a break.
Just a general look at what is going on
The arrival of Neymar has had the first consequence. Cesc Fabregas rumours started strongly, suggesting that he wants to leave Barcelona and that Barcelona would consider selling him. Well, despite the interest from Chelsea, City, United and Arsenal, Barcelona have got no intention whatsoever to let him go. But they will have to say so publicly to calm everybody down, not least the player that would want some reassurances that the arrival of Neymar will not affect him. One deterrent: his buy out clause is 200 million euros for everybody, apart from Arsenal (40 million for them). Everything will be sorted and he will wear the Barcelona shirt next season
Villa could have gone to Arsenal in a four year deal in January but instead now he has on the table an offer from Atletico Madrid and one of Spurs (2 year deal). Arsenal are delaying any approach for now, even though it would be strange if they wanted him so badly five months ago and not at all now. He prefers to go to the Premier League
After guaranteeing the arrival of Iago Aspas (my worry is his consistency and mental maturity, but he has a lot of talent), Luis Alberto could be the next Spanish player landing in Anfield, but it is pending the activation or not of the clause that Barcelona has for the Sevilla player (on loan to the Barcelona B team). If they activate it, he might still go but it might cost more. If he eventually arrives to Anfield, he is an offensive midfielder, forward, that can play in two out of the three positions in the 4-3-3 , behind the striker or as false nine.
Soon all will be confirmed with Manuel Pellegrini and City who is trying to convince Isco to come to Manchester. Isco also has an offer from Real Madrid
Talking of which, Carlo Ancelotti is still trying to get away from PSG but the French club are not making it easy. Juup Heynckes is a second choice for Madrid but Florentino Perez will insist with Ancelotti for a while, but will not wait for ever
Ronaldo will not leave Real Madrid this summer. I have been told by the club I can swear that he is not going anywhere this summer, so I swear that he will not.
