There have been a number of reports over the last few days suggesting that Arsenal have agreed terms with Gonzalo Higuain over his potential transfer to the Emirates from Real Madrid. It was also thought that the transfer fee had been settled at around £20 million. Whether this is is true or not, we don't know, but even if it is true, that does not mean the transfer will definitely happen.
20.05.2013 -"Conferencia a las ocho de la noche" fue el aviso a los medios que, una hora antes, coparon la sala de prensa de Real Madrid. Allí, el presidente Florentino Pérez anunció lo sabido: "Hemos decidido, de común acuerdo, la salida de Mourinho.
Come June 2, 2013, Jose Mourinho's time in charge of Real Madrid will be over.
The club's President, Florentino Perez, announced at a press conference on Monday that Real Madrid and Mourinho had agreed to part ways by mutual consent, ending a three year stay in the Spanish capital.
18.05.2013 -"El que busca la verdad escucha mi voz", respondió Jesús. Pilatos entonces dijo: "¿Qué es la verdad". SAN JUAN 18:38 Con goles de Diego Costa (´34) y Miranda (´98) Atlético Madrid venció (1-2) a Real Madrid (Cristiano Ronaldo ´14) en el Santiago Bernabeu y se consagró campeón de la Copa del Rey (12-13).
15.04.2013 - Al mejor estilo Bilardo, Mourinho arremetió contra los juveniles (suplentes) en el partido en que Real Madrid venció (3-0) a Athletic de Bilbao con una imperativa pregunta más que razonable: "A ver si me podéis explicar de una puta vez, que todavía no entiendo.
Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has said that Iker Casillas will not even be on the bench for the Champions League quarter-final first-leg against Galatasaray on Wednesday.
The Spanish captain has recently returned to full training after breaking a bone in his hand back in January. However, after another fine performance by Diego Lopez in Madrid's 1-1 draw with Real Zaragoza on Saturday, Mourinho said it will be difficult for Casillas to regain his place.
Every week it seems like Arsenal are linked with another transfer target and it will continue from now until the start of next season. Many of the rumours are focused on strikers, with Stevan Jovetic, David Villa and Alvaro Negredo just three of the many names connected with a possible move to the Emirates.
Tras el encuentro de ida disputado en el Santiago Bernabéu que acabó con empate a uno gracias a los tantos de Danny Welbeck y Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United y Real Madrid se volverán a ver las caras este martes 5 de marzo a partir de las 20:45 horas.
El Real Madrid llegó a Manchester el lunes por la noche con una convocatoria formada por 24 jugadores, es decir, todos los futbolistas del primer equipo.
Following Real Madrid's 3-1 win against Barcelon at the Camp Nou in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semifinal, Jose Mourinho's hometown of Setubal, Portugal has unanimously voted to name a street after him. This might seem like a nice gesture, but given Mourinho's unprecedented success in four different leagues across Europe, he clearly deserves to have the whole continent named after him.
It's looking more and more likely that Jose Mourinho will be managing a new team next season.
The Real Madrid boss increased speculation of his La Liga exit when he stated that he'd be interested in coaching in Ligue 1, leaving many to believe he could be the next man for the Paris Saint-Germain job, if the Paris club sack Carlo Ancelotti.
With all the rumour and speculation doing the rounds at the moment about potential signings at Chelsea this summer, I wanted to concentrate on the players we do have and am asking the question of Romelu Lukaku. Do you think he should be heavily involved in the Chelsea first team next season under Mourinho OR do you think he should have another season out on loan?
There is a growing buzz and expectation among the Arsenal players and fans that next season could be the start of a new period for the club. All the timings seem to be going our way, after eight years without a trophy. Arsene Wenger has worked miracles to keep the Gunners within the top four while having to sell the best players and pay off the debt from building the Emirates stadium.
It's more or less certain now that Jose Mourinho will make a dramatic return to Stamford Bridge this summer. Personally, I cannot wait for that to happen. We look at our Chelsea team and see the fantastic quality we have. The current squad has won the Champions League and Europa League but has failed in the Premier League and we find ourselves a long way off challenging for the title.
Well what a crazy week for English football! It seems that all THREE of Arsenal's top rivals for the League are changing their managers this summer. We all know about Ferguson, and today it is on Sky Sports that Man City are in talks with Manuel Pelligrini to take over at the Etihad next season.
Then of course we all know that Jose Mourinho is going to Chelsea and so all three of them are going to be going through a period of upheaval as the new managers settle in.
Looking around all the hundreds of Arsenal blogs out there in the ethernet, it seems that most Gooners seem keen on Arsene Wenger going for QPR's Loic Remy or Aston Villa's Christian Benteke (who apparently is an Arsenal fan anyway) but in my opinion there is one much better man in front of our noses.
Watch out Fergie! Mourinho is back, and he'll be going on a huge spending spree this summer at Stamford Bridge to bring in some of the biggest names in the sport, according to a story in theEvening Standard.
The players on Mourinho's shopping list include Robert Lewandowski and Radamel Falcao, as well as several current Real Madrid stars.
Jose Mourinho was easing into the philosophical, waxing about "being where people love him" until he was rudely cut off by ITV's unfortunate interviewer. Mourinho is not often cut off in press conferences – especially when it's the English media asking the questions – but was there any real suspense in what Mourinho was going to say if his interview hadn't been bushwhacked by beckoning commercials?
Arsene Wenger is rumoured to have a minimum 70m GBP treasure chest to improve the Arsenal squad this summer, but he is fully expecting Chelsea to be one of the biggest spenders in the upcoming transfer window. Roman Abramovich has already allegedly lined up Radamel Falcao to spearhead the Blues attack next season and the negotiations for the German Andre Schurrle is also at an advanced stage, and Wenger thinks this would give our neighbours a formidable squad.
Chelsea's season has been nothing but inconsistent. The team fired DiMatteo after winning last year's Champions League, then the Blues got kicked out of this year's Champions League, and then they weren't able to get the job done as much as they would've liked in domestic competitions. After DiMatteo's firing, there was uncertainty about how the team was going to respond.
The plot thickens with Jose Mourinho's impending move to Chelsea. The Real Madrid manager saw his side earn a place in the Champions League semi-finals last night, but the press has consistently linked him to a move away from Spain and back to Chelsea.
Rafa Benitez's title as Interim Manager will most certainly end at the culmination of this season, and Chelsea have shown their desire to bring their former manager Mourinho back to West London.
Real Madrid's president considers AVB as Mourinho's replacement
The continuity of Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid is a mystery, similarly to how it is at any other club he has coached. The rumours about his departure from Madrid never cease, but this time it seems like his move away from the white team is more likely than ever.
Sir Alex Ferguson has been featured in the written press ahead of the big Manchester derby tonight and there is one point that has got me thinking.
He has been talking about the fact United have literally dominated the Premier League this term and could do now for a number of years. When asked about challengers to their crown he spoke of Man City with their potential to spend big but also spoke of Chelsea.
The Man United manager Alex Ferguson has seen his team run away with this season's Premiership title, but he has been assessing the chances of the Red Devils retaining the title next year. It seems that he thinks Jose Mourinho will be returning to Stamford Bridge and could provide the biggest challenge, but he tips Arsenal to improve and threaten to surprise their rivals.

According to The Daily Star, Chelsea's managerial problems could be resolved this month if all goes to plan for the southwest London side.
Real Madrid face Manchester United this evening in massive Champions League showdown at Old Trafford, and if the Spanish side go crashing out of the tournament, Mourinho could have very little reason to stay in the capital.

Real Madrid are not having the best season this year. Currently sitting in third place and 16 points away fromarch-rivals Barcelona, this year could easily be described as a failure. Behind this "failure" is manager Jose Mourinho.
The date read 19thMay 2012. It had just gone 23:20 local time when an eerie silence fell upon the Allianz Arena in Germany's capital city of Munich. He stood at 6 feet 1 inches and had the look of a man possessed, this was to be his night, his time to be written in the history of the club.
Arsene Wenger will be the longest serving manager in the Premier League next season, assuming that the Arsenal board and owner do not surprise everyone by sacking him. Alex Ferguson has been at Manchester United for over 26 years, while the man who will replace him at Old Trafford next season, David Moyes, is currently the third longest serving manager with over ten years at Everton.
If Arsenal are looking for a goalkeeper with lots of experience at the top level, they would have to look a lot further than the stopper of Spain and Real Madrid, Iker Casillas. The 31-year old made his full international debut aged 19 and has gone on to become the most capped player ever for the Spanish national side, with 143.
Arsenal Debate: If Wenger goes, who do we bring in? by Spendah.
Some of you may notice me lingering around on this site. I post some comments every now and then but this is my first article so please don't be too harsh. Many of you gooners have been calling for Wenger's head (me included), but if he does leave, then who do we bring in?
Well, in the last few moments, the fastest moving and most important sports news story of the year has thrown us the expected, with the confirmation that David Moyes will become the new Manchester United manager. Over the last day or so, Moyes' name had come firmly to the front of the likelihood list, and now it is a done deal.

05.05.2013 - Casi como Tom Cruise o Elton John, Pep Guardiola pasó por Buenos Aires ("una ciudad abrumadora") y revolucionó el ámbito futbolístico. Apenas terminado el día del trabajador, el (jueves) 2 de mayo fue de puro vértigo Pep. La cita fue su conferencia en plena calle Corrientes (Gran Rex) pero la estadía lo tuvo a puro trajín.
During a week in which Juan Cuadrado has been linked to Jose Mourinho FC we'll get to that in a moment it would seem fitting that he goes and makes a complete fool of himself. Sort of like an awkward teenager who trips and falls flat on his face in front of the girl who likes him. Only Mourinho is unlikely to giggle amongst his friends and find it adorable.
