Alexis Sanchez to BARCA a done deal

Transfer rumors:

Wesley Sneijder could soon be moving from Inter to ManU
Bayern and ManCity agree on transfer fee - Boateng to Bayern
Alexis Sanchez to Barcelona is pretty much done (haven't we heard that b4)

also, supposedly tomorrow Beppe Rossi's agent, Federico Pastorello, is going to hand Juve's offer of 25 million euros plus a player of their choice from a list to Villareal. If that fails, Juve is just going to offer a little more cash. Also, Juventus have agreed to terms with Rossi, at 3.5 million euros per season.

All rumors. But hopefully they're true.

Juan Manuel Vargas, Diego Perrotti, and Michel Bastos are also being tipped to join Juventus. Although only one of those LW will come.

and Arturo Vidal wants to join Juventus.

Some solid moves for Juve. I wanted them to get Kun, but Rossi is a good consolation and is a lot cheaper. Hopefully, like you mentioned b4, Kun won't go to Real.

Also - some more rumors - Juventus has sounded out Barcelona on a transfer of Dutch attacker Ibrahim Afellay (25). Barcelona are unlikely to let him go.

No Rossi for Juve...

Thank goodness, he'd be rough to have to deal with for Milan, though I think our backline could handle it

You should be happy they are gettin' Rossi but not Kun. Had Tevez gone to Brazil, Kun would have likely ended up at ManCity.

What other clubs can Aguero go to? Athletico Madrid has said they won't trade him to Real. He has stated he wants to stay in Spain or go to England. I'm surprised Spurs aren't trying to get him, after failing to land a striker last year multiple times.

Don't think Spurs have enough money since they're in Europa League this year, though if they'd made it back to Champions I could see them going after Kun

Barca have now signed one of the best young 1-on-1 players to play alongside with Messi, Iniesta, and Xavi. Focus shifts to Fabregas.

Real has loaded up (once again) and are also looking to sign Neymar. La Liga will be come down to Clasicos in 2011-12 season.

Pedro gets dropped to the bench I'm assuming. If Fabregas also goes to barca id use him in place of Busquets in Fifa 12 lol I f**kin hate Busquets

haha, I love what Busquets can do on the pitch, but I hate his flopping ass. Pedro will get dropped to bench, but not sure if that will happen right off the gate - it will be interesting to see. Barca will play a LOT of games this year, so having someone like Sanchez - who can basically play on the either side and as well as the false 9 - is godsend for Pep.

I heard that if Fab signs, then Pep might be working on 3-4-3 formation, so Cesc can start as well. LOL - I hope not, that's putting a LOT of pressure on your defense.

33-year old Spanish left-back Joan Capdevila has signed a two-year contract with Benfica from Villarreal - with a release fee clause stamped at €20m.

The Euro 2008 and World Cup 2010 winner committed his immediate future to Benfica yesterday and is already available to manager Jorge Jesus. The Spaniard will compete for a starting place with Emerson, Brazilian left-back from Lille, who joined just a day before.

Not too bad of a trade off when Fabio went to Real. Capdevila with all the experience in the world and Emerson a starting LB for the recently crowned French champions.

I expect Capdevila to start but Emerson to get a lot of playing time due to Capde's age.

Im really excited for this coming season. Benfica really did a bunch of shopping this summer. First qualifying match for the Champions Leage against Turkish side Trabzonspor next week!
so out of nowhere the AFA is planning to have 40 teams in their top flight division...this is sickening. Can I really say River Plate is my Argentine team? Not anymore. They've had the relegation system changed twice in their history to save their asses now. Wow. So in 24 hours I dropped both Bayern Munich and River Plate as my team for those countries.




I no longer root for an Argentine or German club.
