Silly Season Open Thread Part 13 - Get Well Soon, Tito.

No witty title this time around. Unfortunately, Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova has been forced to step down from his Managerial role in order to fight his battle with throat cancer, once again. His tumor has relapsed and it has forced him to focus on something more important than football - his life. We all wish Tito the best and a speedy recovery.

Obviously, this leaves Barcelona with a glaring hole in the Managerial department. Rumors have their assistant, Rubi, taking over for the season. Optimistic Barca fans are hoping for Marcelo Bielsa to swoop in and rescue them. Delusional Barca fans are hoping to buy out Michael Laudrup and lure him to Camp Nou where he played alongside former Barcelona manager, Pep Guardiola and managed by Johan Cruyff.

THE ROUND-UP

  • The rich get richer. PSG signed Marquinhos from Roma. He will now join Thiago Silva to form a ferocious center back pairing and they will be assisted by the young Lucas Digne and as of now probably Van der Wiel although there were rumors that PSG will now go after Dani Alves.

  • Negredo and Jovetic officially join Man City.

  • Napoli still chasing Leandro Damiao, as well as Pepe Reina and Julio Cesear who they could not agree to personal terms with.

I just wanna say....PSG is looking absolutely crazy.

Digne-Silva-Marquinhos-Van der Wiel

Pastore-Matuidi-Moura-Lavezzi

Zlatan-Cavani

and still not mentioned: Thiago Motta, Marco Verratti, Sakho, Menez, Alex

They also have that young French GK Areola who came up HUGE for the French U20 squad on their way to the World Cup victory. Especially in the penalty shoot-out in the final against Uruguay. He was immense.
