Madrid linked with top names

The Real Madrid presendtial elections are close, and usualy candidates use star player names for their campaings (Figo, Beckham). But this time the candidates are using manager names. Capello has already confirmed having talks with Madrid.

"It's true," Capello told the Gazzetta dello Sport when asked if he had met the Real delegation in Italy.

"They came here with Calderon, the presidential candidate, but I only listened, I did not commit myself to anyone."

Another name linked with the Madrid position is Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, but considering Henry's recent commitment to the club and his relationship with the manager, that's a far fetched possibility.

Sven-Goran Ericksson is another name mentioned, and I think he will be Real Madrid's next manager once he's finished with the world cup.

More manager talk

Martin O'Neill is expected to be appointed Middlesbrough's new manager this week, while Liverpool's Rafael Benitez is reported to have signed a contract extension till 2010.

Andy wants Toffees

Everton are on the verge of signing Crystal Palace striker Andy Johnsson for a record-breaking sum of £8.5m. Bolton, Wigan and a couple of other clubs bid for the striker, but Johnsson wants to join Everton.

The Toffees are also believed to have offered Chelsea £5m for Robert Huth.
The rest..

Maxi Lopez´s agent Dario Bombardini believes that the young Barca striker could be on his way out of Barcelona to join Villarreal, while Forlan will move the other way.

Newcastle misfit Albert Luque is being targeted by a series of Spanish clubs after launching an attack on manager Glenn Roeder. Atletico Madrid are understood to have joined UEFA Cup winners Sevilla and Real Zaragoza in monitoring his situation.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reportedly preparing a bid to lure Villarreal midfielder Marcos Senna to Highbury, as well as German young striker Lukas Podolski.

Salomon Kalou is expected to sign for Chelsea within days.

Spain international Joaquin is considering leaving Real Betis and admits he may move to the Premiership this summer. Liverpool and Chelsea are possible destinations.
