There has been speculation in the Spanish media over the past few days that Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann. But reports in Spain said that the France international's club would not be willing to let him go unless Atletico were willing to pay his buy-out clause of£23.

Humiliated and disgraced in 2010, struggled in qualifying and dealt a huge Ribery blow days before the 2014 opener, things aren't the brightest for French football. Their 2010 showing was nothing short of awful, and i'm not even talking about their on-pitch display.
It's "as you were" at the summit of La Liga as the top three all won once again. Athletic Madrid overcame Villarreal, Barcelona beat rock-bottom Betis and Real Madrid won well at Real Sociedad. Atleti are a point ahead of Barca, who in turn lead Real Madrid by two points with just six matches to go.

Reports today suggest that David Moyes has shown an interest in Real Sociedad striker Antoine Griezmann, after watching the 20-year-old make his debut for France on Wednesday night against Holland.
United have already faced Griezmann twice this season and while the Frenchman hadn't been linked with a move to Old Trafford after both Champions League clashes between United and Real Sociedad, Moyes now seems to have stepped up his interest ahead of what promises to be a huge summer for the club.

Tomorrow night at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea complete their pre season preparations with a game against Real Sociedad, the first home pre season game in eight years. I just wondered what you have thought of our pre season so far?
As with every club, it's been difficult to manage for Jose Mourinho and his technical staff due to different players coming back to training at different moments.
Futbol Club Barcelona has made an official announcement about reaching an agreement with Real Sociedad to sign Chilean Goal Keeper, Claudio Bravo. It is speculated that the deal will cost FC Barcelona 12 Million Euros, even though it is not yet clear whether it would be a one time payment or would be linked to incentives.
Since the start of the year, Barcelona have seen their form dip on and off the field.
On the field, the club have lost each of their previous two road matches, first to Real Sociedad and second to Real Valladolid, while off the field the club has dealt with the Neymar transfer tax fiasco.

Arsenal in talks to sign highly rated Spanish defender - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsenal are in talks with La Liga outfit Real Sociedad over the signing of young Spanish defender Joseba Zaldua, according to reports from Spain.
Arsene Wenger, who has this reputation of nurturing young unearthed talents and turn them into superstars, is taking a keen interest in the Real Sociedad's defender, and could use the Carlos Vela situation to good effect in securing the deal.
The president of Real Sociedad,Jokin Aperribay, is quoted in the papers this morning, saying:
Arsenal have informed us that Vela would be with them next season.
Which is interesting, I guess. Yesterday, I watched an interview with him (3'30 for the Arsenal stuff) sent to me via Twitter by @OrlandoGooner, and assuming the man isn't just having a laugh which will then see him point to his first name, wink and go 'Eh?
It has long been known that Arsenal representatives have been in Spain discussing the buy-back clause in the original contract that saw Carlos Vela move to Real Sociedad two years ago, but at last the Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay has confirmed that the Mexican international will definitely be returning to the Emirates next season.

Arsenal badly need a striker in the summer.Many feel, failing to land a good striker in the summer as also in the winter was the main reason why Arsenal failed to sustain the title challenge till the end, despite leading the table till January.
It is well-known that Arsenal have a buy-back clause to bring Carlos Vela back to the Emirates for the ridiculously (now, anyway) low price of 4 million euros, and according to a report on ESPN today the Gunners have commenced talks with Real Sociedad. They report that the La Liga club have offered Arsenal £4.
Arsenal can sign €30m Mexican striker for cheap - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsenal need to buy a striker in the summer. Last summer the Gunners went for Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez, failed to lure both of them and signed Mesut Ozil, an attacking playmaker instead.
Olivier Giroud operated mainly as a lone striker, with young Yaya Sanogo as back-up, and although the duo did their best, still many feel, failing to sign a top striker in January was the major factor why Arsenal lost their way in the title race.

A quick Saturday round-up for you, beginning with more Carlos Vela news (but not from Carlos Vela News).
Reports from Spain last night suggest that we are indeed in negotiations with Real Sociedad, but not to bring him back. It seems that the Spanish side want to buy out our right to the 50% sell-on clause, and could pay as much as €11m to do that.
