With the football season coming to an end and news of Jose Mourinho’s departure confirmed, the Madrid press is now in transfer rumour overdrive.
And one name frequently mentioned with Los Blancos is Neymar, the young Brazilian playmaker currently playing for Santos.
As opts for his potential transfer as it’s front page, with the headline “I’ll sign for Madrid if Cristiano stays”. Marca also has plenty of coverage of the potential switch, with the paper claiming that Carlo Ancelotti has already given the green light for the deal.
Marca opts for a picture of Daniel Carvajal as its front page, with the headline “Prepared”, as the right back looks set for a move to Los Merengues from Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
There is mention of other potential arrivals at the Bernabeu this summer, with Marca claiming Ancelotti also wants to secure Arturo Vidal’s signature.
Of course, for so many new arrivals to happen, some of the current playing squad will need to leave, and according to Marca, Fabio Coentrao is close to securing a switch to Chelsea where he will continue to play under Jose Mourinho.
While there is plenty of speculation surrounding the club, both As and Marca also begin switching their attention to this Sunday’s La Liga fixture with Champions League-chasing Real Sociedad.
