Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?
Seriously, are we?
Tomorrow marks the final day of the preseason, which means we are that much closer to the start of the actual season. Which means we are that much closer to capturing what is rightfully ours........ALL THE TROPHIES!
We should be able to handle Roma and end the preseason on a high note. I'd like to see us start off with a Mikel-Van Ginkel pivot with an attacking band of Hazard-DeBruyne-Schurrle with Lukaku up top. I feel like Hazard might start on the bench, though. Should be a fun game. Anyway, let's take a look at what's going on in silly season:
- Piazon has been officially loaned to Vitesse.
- Ake signs a five year contract.
- Madrid declined Tottenham's offer of including Adebayor in the deal for Bale.
- Spurs want 120mil euros + Morata or Jese. Players don't want to leave Madrid and the club want to pay less.
- Meanwhile, Cadena Cope is saying Malaga are close to securing Jese on a season long loan.
- A bid of €95mil for Bale was reportedly rejected and Madrid have not increased their offer since. That's just crazy.
- ESPN is running with a story that several big stars including Casillas, Ronaldo and Ramos don't want Bale at Madrid.
- According to SportsDirectNews, City had a £35 million bid for Willian rejected.
- Sky Sports says Chamakh is about to have a medical at Crystal Palace.
- QPR have signed Duvan Zapata.
- Anton Ferdinand has left QPR. Destination unknown.
- Sky Italy says Christian Chivu is about to meet with Inter officials about ending his contract.
- According to Mediaset, Eto'o's agent has contacted both Inter and AC Milan. Napoli and Chelsea are also in the mix.
- Barca rejected Napoli's bid for Mascherano according to Il Mattino.
- According to The Mirror, Liverpool's Oussami Assaidi is said to be joining QPR on a season long loan.
- There has been a lot of interest in Pablo Osvaldo during this window, and now, according to Calciomerato, Borussia Dortmund are throwing their hat in the ring. No bid has been made yet.
- According to Bild, Luiz Gustavo prefers a move to England rather than moving to Wolfsburg. Chelsea and Arsenal are two rumored destinations.
WE'RE ALMOST THERE!!!!!!!!!
