Madrid offseason news!

July 9, 2010

Real Madrid news!  I feel like it’s been months since the end of the season, so luckily I have the World Cup to distract me!  But I don’t know what I’ll do after Tuesday (Monday will be spent celebrating the Spain win) when there will be neither club football or country football!

One. Did you know that Fernando Gago is on twitter?  Well, not just Fernando Gago, but Fernando plus his girlfriend Gisela Dulko.  Yes, they have a joint twitter account, giseyfer – how sweet – which you can find here.  Apparently, Jorge Valdano has told Fernando that Madrid will be counting on him next season, since José Mourinho has agreed to keep him on.  Meanwhile, Fernando is training in Switzerland with Gisela, who is playing a tournament there.  Before that, he was in Madrid, and has succeeded in adding two kilos of muscle to his frame.  Gisela is currently ranked 48th in the world.

And yay, it looks like Fernando got rid of the mullet!

Two. Speaking of TSO, it’s said that he wants to hold double training sessions in the upcoming season.  If that happens, the players will spent a big chunk of their day at Valdebebas – breakfast, first training session, lunch, rest, second training session.

Three. Ángel di María’s presentation, originally scheduled for today, has been postponed until after the U.S. tour.  He’ll go back on vacation now after heading to Madrid for his physical, where he was given a clean bill of health.  It’s said that he’s looking to buy a house in La Finca, near Cristiano’s, so they’ll be neighbors!

Four. Castilla captain Pedro Mosquera will be playing at Getafe next season, like many of Madrid’s canteranos before him.  He said he’s excited to be going there, that he likes the club a lot, and that it was Getafe coach (and former Madrid player/coach) Míchel that convinced him to choose Getafe.  Míchel had already shown a lot of confidence in Pedro in his time as coach of Castilla.  We also find out that Esteban Granero had recommended this option to Pedro, based on his own personal experience.
