[quote]I'm bummed that Negredo is gone. He was great at times last year. [/quote] He was the perfect #9 in the first half of last season. Then he just lost it.

[quote]So what exactly is the non-salary loan for Falcao? It can't be 12 million pounds for the loan and 8 million pounds for the salary, right? [/quote]Telegraph says it's 6m pounds for the non-salary and 100% of wages 346k per week (~18m). No idea if accurate....

[quote]Chicarito is just depth at best or a late sub. Falcao would be a fixture in the lineup. [/quote]From what I've read from Spanish media, they don't want to upset Benzema after his new deal.

re: 2014 Summer Transfer Thread - jturn17
There's been a lot of chatter today that Negredo is off to Valencia and Falcao is on his way to City. Though it's possible his agent is trying to push for a bigger salary from Real. At least this will keep the end of the window interesting....
