Icardi Linked to Real Madrid Move (Again)
All`s quiet in La Liga as we wait for the two-week festive break to come to an end.
I suppose there are better ways of entering the festive break than being beaten 3-0, at the Bernabeu, by Barcelona, but in life you have to take the rough with the smooth.
In a matter of four-days, the January transfer window will open and we`re hoping that we`re awash with speculation linking new arrivals to the club.
After all, after a poor start to the defence of the La Liga trophy we won last season, there are some who feel the squad could do with freshening up.
Today, speculation linking Real Madrid with a striker has reared its head again.
According to the English news source, the Express, which has picked up on something first mentioned by the Italian media vehicle, Calciomercato, Real Madrid are still being linked with the Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi.
Much is being made of the fact that the 24-year-old has yet to sign a new contract with his present club, Inter Milan, and that he could be bound for Real Madrid.
Personally, I`d be amazed if the move did go ahead in the January transfer window, but not quite so if it were done in the summer.
