Raul Jimenez on loan from Athletico
And they supposedly made a £12m offer for Chicharito today.

There is so much smoke around this transfer, however, that there must be a little fire. I think we're clearly in for him and willing to spend the money. Benzema's place in the starting XI is also pretty clearly in question, with Perez and Benitez intent on playing Bale as a second striker and questions about whether you can really fit him, CR7, and Benzema into the team that way. Whether Madrid is willing to sell seems like the big issue and it probably hinges on whether or not they can bring in a new galactico or a few other good players. Especially after Barca winning the treble, there is no way that they just sell us Benzema without having some kind of new shiny toy to dangle in front of the supporters.
Edit: Sport1.de now reporting there´s nothing about the Son-to-Tottenham rumor. He´ll be in tonight´s 18-man-lineup.

Its the wages. Players will not leave unless offered top dollar. If im a team and i value a player at x dollars, then ideally transfer FEE + wages equals x. As wages go up, FEE Góes down.PedroSpecialK said:That, and Bayern for whatever reason don't seem to get great fees back for their players

PedroSpecialK said:Dante was originally purchased by Bayern for €4.5m IIRC - and hasn't been incredible by any means in the past couple of seasons. That, and Bayern for whatever reason don't seem to get great fees back for their players - €30m for Kroos notwithstanding (and even that's on the low side for me):
Mandžukić - €22m
Luis Gustavo - €16m
Podolski (in '09) - €10m
Schweinsteiger - €9m
Can - €5m
Hummels - €4.2m

Morgan's Magic Snowplow said:The window for Premier League transfers shuts tomorrow at 6 PM GMT. The window shuts today for several other major continental leagues in terms of buying and registering players (they can still sell).
So you might still be able to get some work done.
