New, comments

James to help Real Madrid? Jonas Hector to pick Dortmund over Bayern? Niko Kovac stares blankly at his present, while trying to block out the noise going on about his future? All that and (a little) MORE!

James may be credited with an assist in Real Madrid’s effort to land David DeGea (Calciomercato)

James Rodriguez may have rejuvenated his career at Bayern Munich, but his contributions for Real Madrid may not be complete. Per a Calciomercato report, Real Madrid plans to use the revenue generated from a sale of James to lure Manchester United goalkeeper David DeGea back to his homeland.

Real Madrid have a new plan to lure David De Gea to Spain. The Roja shotstopper is considered to be a priority by Florentino Perez, who wants to replace Keylor Navas between the sticks at the Santiago Bernabeu. According to El Chiringuito, James Rodriguez could play a key role in this move: the Colombian could be sold outright to Bayern Munich (who only have him on loan at the moment) so that Real could collect the 44 million they’re owed in the release clause.

James, the gift that keeps on giving for Real Madrid.

Jonas Hector believes he will look better in black and yellow; fashion experts to debate

The Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger is reporting that Jonas Hector will make a home with Dortmund next season rather than his rumored destination of Munich.

Also before the departure is Jonas Hector, who should leave the Cologne in the event of relegation for eight million euros and is facing an agreement with Borussia Dortmund.

In reality, Hector was going to be a luxury purchase for Bayern. Hector is a starting caliber player in just about any European league and would have had a limited role behind David Alaba in Munich.

Mo’ Martial, mo’ problems

The Anthony Martial to Bayern Munich rumors are SCORCHING HOT, but Juventus is also lurking about like a cartoon dogcatcher ready to pounce on the Manchester United man.

This report on Tuesday the “Gazzetta dello Sport” that it has been decided that Martial will leave the Red Devils this summer despite the contract until June 2019.

The Mirror chimed in with the assertion that Bayern sees Martial as a wing, where Juventus would deploy him as a featured striker, which could play a role in where he lands.

The Italian side see the Frenchman as the replacement for Mario Mandzukic this summer, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. But the Italian sports daily also claims the Bundesliga champions want the Manchester United to be the long-term heir to Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.

Expect these type of stories to grind on for the coming weeks.

Hmmm...we think the word you are looking for is “contenders”

Seems like Niko Kovac’s new role in the spotlight, may be having ill effects on his current mindset
