Real Madrid now odds on favourites to sign phenomenon
Real Madrid have already done some unbelievably good business this summer. The most expensive recruit has, of course, been James Rodriguez from Monaco. Rodriguez already looks the business and has much time to improve.
But we would argue that their best signing of the summer is the brilliant German international pass-master Toni Kroos.
Having won The Champions League last season Real Madrid now look in fantastic shape to take on all comers again this year. But, remarkably, their business may not be over yet.
You do feel, however, that another major signing is dependent on whether Real Madrid can find a suitable buyer for Angel di Maria. The Argentinian has just had his best season at the club but rumours persist that he could depart.
The problem is finding a club that can pay his fee and wages. Manchester United looks like the most obvious destination right now.
And if that move does happen then perhaps Radamel Falcao will be the next huge signing. We think that the player would jump at the chance to move to Madrid. Playing alongside Rodriguez, Bale, Ronaldo and Kroos, we could be talking about the best front line of all time.
English bookmaker SkyBet has opened a book on a Falcao move and, not surprisingly, Real Madrid are odds on favourites to sign the player if he moves this summer, at odds of 1/2.
