.............Higuain........
Di Maria...Kaka.....Ronaldo
........Alonso..Diarra......
Marcelo...CB...CB....Ramos
............Casillias........

I dont know if they have a replacement for Kaka?
Canales perhaps? I think Diarra might get the boot. And what about Benzema?

Canales and VdV are replacements for attacking midfield, Benzema will probably be rotated with Higuain.

Mourinho actually said something like Ronaldo is too talented to be fixed to one position, he'll probably have a freer role with Ramos providing width.

I'm not too sure about the holding role, they have a lot of depth there, it will probably be between Lass and Khedira depending on the opposition.

It looks like Mourinho is going to set Madrid out like Chelsea in his first season there......

Van der Vaart!!
That's who I was forgetting :facepalm:
I knew they had another attacking midfielder but all that came to mind was Sneijder (who's obviously at Inter)

I'm just waiting to see how Madrid's defence will have improved, if at all. Mourinho is a defensive coach so I expect them to have a good defence now.

Hernanes has gone to Lazio. Was by far the best Sao Paulo player in the semi-finals of the Copa Libertadores. Very good player. :yep:

About time Hernanes came to Europe, we were in for him three seasons ago and I thought he'd be in Europe in no time.

Any guesses on who will come 3rd / 4th?

If I was forced to choose, I'd probably say Sevilla and Atleti, but tbh I didn't really follow teams apart from the big 2 last year.

Be interesting to see how Valencia perform this year after losing Villa, Silva and Zigic.

Carvallho signs for Madrid :O. No one really saw that coming. He's one hundred years old but I think he does the job, it's quite clear that Pepe won't be fit for the whole season. Anyway, 2 year contract and €8m. fee transfer, so that's a good sign that we are not paying ridiculous amount of money for players are not worth it:

Di Maria, Benfica wanted €40m. and we gave them 25+incentives
Kolarov, we offered €18m., Lazio wanted €25m... so good bye.
Maicon, €30m. Inter wanted, we offered 22... so **** off.

There was actually a lot of speculation, but the announcement of a signing sort of came out of the blue.

Like I said earlier, the only real weak spot I can see in Madrid is LB.

OMG!!! :eek:

Although there was speculation. Carvalho signing for Madrid was out of the blue. Well be interesting to see how Mourinho deals with the defence. They really need a proper LB. Marcelo doesn't really cut it.

Yeah, there was a lot of speculation... until Mourinho himself in a press conference said that he ruled out the signings of A.Cole and Carvallo. That´s why it comes as a surprise.

Anyway, he´s 100 years old but experienced a bloody good defenders. It´s a great signing seeing that Maicon is not going to sign (and therefore Ramos was due to be CB).

BTW, Carvallho´s agent is... Jorge Mendes (CR, Pepe, Di Maria, Mourinho... etc.) I wonder how much money he has made in terms of commissions thanks to Madrid.

I agree that the weakest spot at the moment is the LB. Which LB´s does Mendes have? Does anyone have the catalogue? xD

Did a quick search and it looks like Mourinho completely ripped his age :rofl2:

Carvalho has his own injury problems so I'm not sure if he'll be a consistent starter, but he'll be a decent leader and his experience will be very useful for Garay.

Would you rather have got Maicon?

Maicon would have been nice, imagine a wing with Maicon-CR7 :sogood: , positioning Ramos as CB.

I am not sure if we are going for a LB now though because Mourinho seems to confident in making Marcelo a good defender, and also we have ran out of options, Kolarov signed for City and Concentrao (or whatever) signed for Bayern. Ashley Cole or Clichy would be nice but it's not going to happen .
