My friends were always saying I was being a contrarian for prefering Cavani to Falcao but this game today illustratres my preference perfectly. Paulinho looks like the type of box to box player I hoped Khedira would be when he first arrived.

Cavani has worked his ass off down the right wing. He had an inch perfect sliding tackle against Marcelo in his own penalty box. Not to mention a well taken goal.

Paulinho is just that. He has all of the running of Khedira but he can actually pass and dribble the ball. Not as good as Javi Martinez of course Wink but still a huge improvement over Sami. Now he's just scored the go ahead goal against Brazil on a header from a corner. Ale

Cavani = 63m euro
Paulinho (based on Tottenham's bid) = 20m euro

Bale = 100m euro

Easy choice for me.

Cavani has always been like that though. Very unselfish player who is willing to play on the wing when needed which is perfect for when we need to compensate for Ronaldo's lack of work. I'm very worried that this Cavani to Chelsea will go through before we get a chance to really push for the transfer now that Ancelotti is there.

The club's president Florentino Perez has confirmed that the midfielder will move to the Santiago Bernabeu once he has passed a medical Real Madrid have confirmed that Malaga star Isco will sign for the club upon the successful completion of a medical. The midfielder has been linked with a number of Europe's biggest clubs after starring for los Boquerones in their debut season in the Champions League last term. Manchester City were strongly tipped to sign the 21-year-old, with the Premier League club reportedly keen on reuniting the player with coach Manuel Pellegrini after his arrival from Malaga earlier in June. But Isco is now set to become Carlo Ancelotti's first signing at the Santiago Bernabeu after Florentino Perez's revelations on Wednesday. "Isco has signed from Malaga and must now pass his medical examination”, the president told Radio Nacional de Espana. Isco revealed earlier in June that he had received offers from both Madrid and Manchester City but hinted on Monday he was set to join the Bernabeu giants. "Real Madrid are a club that excites me - they are one of the best teams in the world," he said. Madrid centre-back Sergio Ramos spoke positively about the potential arrival of his Spain team-mate earlier this week. "Isco is a great player and we always aspire to have the best. It's a joy to hear rumours of a transfer," he told Onda Cero. Isco scored 12 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions last season. wrote:

Cavani is quoted saying that he won't make any decisions about his future until after the Confed Cup so hopefully we haven't lost anything yet.

Real Madrid are eyeing Wolfsburg fullback Ricardo Rodriguez.

Real are planning to sell Fabio Coentrao and are in the market for a replacement left-back signing.

Rodriguez is under consideration at the Madrid giants, says TMW.

Never heard of him to be honest.

A little transfer gossip concerning Real Madrid:

*Man City are still pursuing Pepe and according to Radio Marca they are going to make 30m euro offer for the Portuguese defender. Personally, I would sell him for a fee like that. He's most likely not going to be first choice any more and for a defender who is about to turn 31 next season we aren't going to get an offer like that again. Normally I'm not too concerned about age for a centre back until they get to the mid 30s but the injuries seem to be getting more and more frequent with Pepe.

*Apparently the new strategy for Bale is to include Angel Di Maria in the operation. Would be pretty much like for like although Bale probably has more goalscoring punch than Di Maria. But Di Maria can play through passes a lot better. Not sure what that would make the fee.

*Both Paulinho and Cavani who seemed like they were on the verge of moves to English football have said they are putting off any decisions about their future until after the Confederations Cup so now that Ancelotti is in place I think that bodes well for our chances.

*Still being linked with Verratti from PSG. Sounded like PSG were going to give him a big new contract to discourage any suitors but his name keeps coming up. He seems like a nice footballer but I don't think he offers anything better than what we already have in Modric. I'd rather have someone like Paulinho (or Luis Gustavo who is also being linked with RM now) who can actually replace Khedira (this will come as a great surprise to all of you I'm sure! Wink ).

Illarramendi, Vidal, Pirlo, Gundogan, Verratti, Kondogbia, and Paulinho

Building on Jaime's post about Ancelotti's choice for central midfield I think Ancelotti is right to go for somebody here but it is beyond me why we are even linked with a Pirlo or a Verratti. The other choices mentioned by Jaime were Illarramendi, Vidal, Gundogan, Kondogbia, and Paulinho. All of these players fit well with the type of central midfielder we need although I'm unsure how solid Illarramendi is but I haven't seen him enough really. We need a talented facking runner because Khedira is just a runner and at times we need a different type from the Modric and Isco's of the world. I'm glad that Ancelotti has generally prefered a midfield with at least one runner(Gattuso,Mikel,Matuidi) so I'm hopeful he won't rely on Khedira as being his runner in midfield.

Carlo Ancelotti will be like a breath of fresh air at Real Madrid

The Italian's easygoing nature extends to tactics – from Parma to PSG he has learned to change according to circumstance

Perhaps Carlo Ancelotti's greatest gift as a coach is his affability. He desperately wants to succeed but he recognises there are things in life other than football – such as food, even if he is rather slimmer now than he once was. His years at Milan under Silvio Berlusconi and at Chelsea under Roman Abramovich passed without ructions with owners noted for interfering. He even managed to cool a developing (on one side at least) feud with José Mourinho by suggesting they simply pack it in. After the sulphurous reign of Mourinho, his breezy pleasantness will be a cleansing blast at the Bernabéu. Real Madrid can be a strange place politically but if there is any top manager equipped to handle the internal pressures, it is Ancelotti, a man seemingly able to face down most situations with a raise of his famous eyebrow (according to the journalist Sheridan Bird, the effect is the result of limited movement caused by an elbow in the face from Marco Tardelli). His easygoing nature extends to tactics. Ancelotti may be inclined to the 4-3-2-1 on which he wrote his coaching dissertation at Coverciano but he will change according to circumstance – a lesson he learned at Parma, his first job in management. Then, he admits, he was too wedded to the 4-4-2 he had learned under Arrigo Sacchi at Milan. That he had learned it, even, said much for his character and his willingness to learn. Ancelotti arrived from Roma aged 28 and took time to adapt. "He struggled at first," Sacchi said. "Berlusconi said we had an orchestra director who couldn't read sheet music. I told him I would teach him to sing in tune with our orchestra. Every day, I would make him come an hour before training with some kids from the youth team and we would go through everything. Eventually he sang in perfect tune." At Parma, Ancelotti insisted on playing that way, even though that meant Gianfranco Zola playing on the left wing until he decided to move to Chelsea. It also meant he missed out on the chance to sign Roberto Baggio, who was keen to leave Milan, but wanted to play behind the front two rather than compete with Hernan Crespo and Enrico Chiesa for one of the two striking berths and so joined Bologna instead. Now, Ancellotti insists, he would be more flexible, would find a way to accommodate a talent like Baggio's. "I lost a great opportunity to improve the team with the ability of Baggio," he said. "But that was a lack of experience. I had been a coach just two years. I didn't have the knowledge to know I could change things. And maybe I was a little bit scared to change because it was the start of my career." He proved that in his second coaching job, at Juventus, where he switched to a back three, playing 3-4-1-2 to accommodate Zinedine Zidane behind a front two. At Milan, it was fairly obvious Ancelotti wanted to play a 4-3-2-1 but when the order came from Berlusconi to use two central strikers, he demurred and ended up playing 4-3-1-2 slightly more than twice as often in Serie A as he did his preferred style. At Chelsea, he tried to operate with a diamond in midfield but, realising that Frank Lampard is better with the ball in front of him than playing with his back to goal, soon adapted, using Deco or Joe Cole in the role before switching back to a shape that varied between 4-3-2-1 and 4-3-3. In Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ancelotti found the idea front man for his 4-3-2-1 at Paris Saint-Germain, with Ezequiel Lavezzi, Jérémy Ménez, Nenê and Javier Pastore playing off him. Even then, he was prepared to change to 4-4-2 when the occasion demanded it. It is hard to imagine Ancelotti changing much in his first weeks at Madrid – although much, of course, depends on who they sign. It's certainly possible to imagine a 4-3-2-1 with Karim Benzema at the peak, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Mesut Ozil tucked behind in what would effectively be free roles, and a three of Xabi Alonso, Sami Khedira and Luka Modric providing the platform. Or perhaps Angel di María could be used a little deeper than previously – as Pastore was often used at PSG – as a creative player who starts deep and then advances. More likely, especially with Isco set to join and another forward likely, is that the 4-2-3-1 will remain. It's a system that allows the use of four creative players, plus at least one attacking full-back and a player who can advance from deep and so fits a squad who are both heavy on attacking players, the inclinations of the president Florentino Pérez and the way Madrid need to play in a league in which they are expected to win the vast majority of their games. The one problem is that Ancelotti has used a 4-2-3-1 in just 3% of the league games in which he has been coach since taking over at Juventus in 1999. For a manager so undogmatic it probably isn't an issue but it does seem he has been appointed more for his personality than because his natural tactical philosophy is a fit with the players in the squad. wrote:

Thought Marcelo's play in the Confed Cup, overall, was very encouraging. Looks like he's shaken off the effects of PROGRESS and playing better than he has for sometime.

Seen over the weekend we've been linked with Jovetic as a replacement for Higuain. scratch

I was under the impression he was more of a '10' than an out-and-out striker. Does he score a lot of goals? Anyone??????

He is a number 10 but has played as the front man (false 9) for Viola this year. Hoping we get him in addition to Higuain. Quality player. You have no real need for him though due to having Ozil and Isco.

I posted this list of CMs that Ancelotti is interested in, in the mercado thread: Verratti, Illarramendi, Kondogbia, Vidal, Pirlo, Gundogan.

Another name to add to the list is Nemanja Matic. Don't know that much about him although he used to be at Chelsea and it looks like he is a giant.

Anyone seen him play?

He was awesome in the Europa League final against Chelsea. I was very impressed and he seems like a real steal because he probably won't go too high number...except that it is Benfica and they always screw you over.Grr
