Jose Angel Sanchez, general manager of Madrid, has been three days in Qatar meeting with the PSG owners to unlock once and for all Ancelotti output of all ties.

The coach is optimistic and hopes that tomorrow will be the day in which the he signs for Madrid as he remains detached from the French club.

This week, through his agent Ernesto Bronzetti, he has returned to contact the leaders of Madrid to announce that it is ready to come now. Carletto has nothing more to talk with PSG.

Ancelotti understood that his decision to leave was to convey the President of PSG Leonardo. He did and that has created more confusion to his decision to leave.

In Leonardo PSG have ordered efforts to expedite the signing of new coach and sporting director insists on hiring Guus Hiddink, current coach of Anzhi Russian.

Ancelotti will come to Madrid making less money than Mourinho. To break his contract with PSG will pay 4 million euros

Verratti: “My future is not tied to Ancelotti’s”

With Real Madrid continuing to plot its assault on the transfer market this summer, Marco Verratti has been widely touted as a possible addition to add depth in midfield.

The Italian starlet, who has spent the last season working under Carlo Ancelotti at PSG, is currently away at the European Under-21 Championship, but has sought to brush off the talk of a move. “I heard about Ancelotti a few days ago and I think he’s going to leave. If this is the case, I’ll be happy for him because he’d be going to a big club. But my future isn’t tied to the coach’s. I am very happy in Paris; we’ll see what happens in the future, but for now I want to stay at PSG”, he claimed.

Verratti’s agent, Donato di Campli, has acknowledged Real’s interest in the youngster: “Next week I will meet with PSG to talk about his future. Real Madrid is interested”, he told ‘SportMediaset’.

Luis Cavani: “My son wants to join Real”

Edinson Cavani’s name continues to be touted as a summer transfer target for Real Madrid. Luis Cavani, the Napoli striker’s father, spoke on MARCA TV programme ‘Futboleros’ about the offers the player has received outside of Italy and said that interest from ‘Los Blancos’ was the most appealing.

“Edinson would like to play for a team like Real Madrid. That’s what he wants to do and is open to a move. Our son told the family in private that he wants to play for Real Madrid, but if he publically states his desire to leave it will not be well-received at Napoli”, the player’s father revealed.

The Uruguayan forward’s parent went on to add that contact had already been made: “There has been contact with the Real Madrid lawyers and we are waiting for the clubs to speak to each other”.

Luis Cavani knows full well that it will be difficult for a deal to go through, due to Napoli’s high asking-price for the striker, despite the player’s willingness to leave: “It would be great if it happened and the clubs could meet as soon as possible to agree everything. Who wouldn’t want to play for Real Madrid? But it’s not only down to Edi. We’re talking about €65 million and Napoli won’t take anything less. But the player’s wish is not to stay”.

PSG joins the Bale trail

Real Madrid’s hopes of signing Gareth Bale have taken a knock. According to the ‘Daily Mail’, PSG is prepared to offer Tottenham some £85 million (almost €100 million) to sign the Spurs winger.

The sheikh and president of the Paris outfit, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, wants the Welshman to form the cornerstone of his new project at PSG and is willing to beat any offer which Real Madrid comes up with to snatch the Premier League’s 2013 Player of the Year.

PSG are also considering bringing in Villas-Boas to replace Carlo Ancelotti, which could boost Bale’s chances of ending up in the French capital.

Cavani’s mother admits to Real and City talks

Edinson Cavani is one this transfer window’s big scores. The Uruguayan striker is leaving Napoli, and the bids to sign him have begun.

The latest reports pointed to Chelsea as the frontrunner, but the footballer’s mother has provided an unexpected twist with respect to her son’s future. “Edi is in talks with Real Madrid and Manchester City.”

Cavani’s mother did not hold back in her statements to a Montevideo radio station, and assured that her son’s future will be settled very soon.

“He’ll decide where he’s going in two weeks. Napoli will always be in my heart. The Napoli president talked to us about an offer from Chelsea, but there is nothing certain yet,” she revealed.
