Real Madrid
Thank you for taking the time to write down all the gossips . From what you have written lately , I personally believe that Costa will return to Atlético. They have money available after selling Jackson, and they could get even more after selling some player, for example, I think there will be very strong bids for Gimenez , the CB. Óliver Torres should leave as well to get minutes.
About Barcelona, AS writes today that he wants to continue in the club despite having received a super offer from China. I think Barcelona should sell him.
He is not adapting and is no longer a kid to give him time.
AS also published that Neymar wants to go to Copa América and the Olympic Games but Barcelona will not allow him to go to the Copa América. We will see what his father thinks about that...
About Cristiano ,in recent days have read completely different information. On the one hand which says that Madrid has understood that there is no substitute for him in the market, both footballing and commercially , so Mendes is convinced that Florentino is "between the sword and the wall" and will offer him a renewal for 2 years (until 2020).However it is also true that most of the press says that Cristiano has put up for sale his homes in Madrid, both his and his mother(although he already denied it).
I wonder what will happen with Courtois. He might leave but probably Chelsea will demand a lot of money

Another one.
Louis facing a mutiny!
Louis kept pretty quiet about his future during the press conference this morning but it appears more reports have emerged.

The Dutchman was unwilling to discuss his future but now the Telegraph are reporting that at least three players will leave the club if Van Gaal stays next season.

Van Gaal will be managing at Wembley for the first time
No players are mentioned by the paper but the report also claims that Sir Alex Ferguson has given his approval for Jose Mourinho to take over.

Quite a lot going on then!
