Transfer madness

Real Madrid is at it again, spending huge bucks on established stars in an attempt to cash in on shirt sales. Surely they have learned their lesson in the past that stars alone don't win championships and it is quite hard to keep them all happy. Each of them big stars must fit their ego into the dressing room, in a way it is a can of compressed air, make sure there are no leaks.
In any case, Kaka joined Real, smartly he didn't choose Man City and who could blame him? They could't crack even Europa league. Ronaldo (Fake Ronnie) is also on his way out of the Man United to team up with Kaka, good riddance. Was getting tired of seeing his whining antics.
There are number of rumors surrounding Chelsea. Apparently we have "lost the race" to sign Glen Johnson... hard to believe this story as we have number of defenders young and not so young that are not any worse than Glen. Speaking of which, Carvalho's future is also to be decided, he migth be heading to a reunion with Jose, along with Deco. Apparently he has lost joy for football at Chelsea after not being able to crack starting lineup under Guus. Both of players are becoming injury prone and had pretty horribles seasons. Italian "technical" league with slower pace and larger fields would be ideal to revitalize their careers.
Chelsea have bid and got a rejection from Byern, Frank Ribery is a target. United also trying to get him. We've also put a bid for David Villa... what an interesting signing he would be, it is unclear where he'd play though. Surely we'd have to sell a striker if we sign him. I'd be really surprised if we did though. Apparently he wants to play in Spain and getting an unhappy player might not be best option. Then again, Crespo wasn't super happy either but he had death touch around the net.
Pato is another target, who apparently "Wants to win everything with Milan". Sounds a like that statement has been practiced in front of the hotel bathroom mirror.
Shevchenko, our faded star is still on our books and is being shopped around in France..
Pizzaro saga will be interesting to watch also, he's been quite good on Germany and naturally would like to stay there, for the right price that is.
Drogba's contract is up in the air, apparently we want to get our hands on Swedish delight Ibrahimovich in some sort of exchange for Drogs? Interesting, if anything I'd go after Ballotelli, he's got size, skill and bright future.
