Real Madrid Now Addressing The Defense

After splashing down well over 100M Euros for Kaka and Ronaldo earlier this month, everybody wondered whether Real Madrid ever address its woeful defense. The answer is beginning to take shape as it appears the first sale in Valencia's firesale will be Raul Albiol, and Real Madrid is doing the buying for a reported £12.8m.

That is one Liverpool target gobbled up by Madrid and it still looks like Real has eyes for a current Liverpool player, Alvaro Arbeloa. One wonders though, how much they will actually pay if Liverpool will not let Alonso go.

It might be time, soon, to revisit the Madrid roster and how it might look next year.

This was pretty much expected. Perez said he needed one more center back, so why not grab a young national team player that should be around for years. Combining him with Garay and Pepe means Perez won't have to look for another one while he is president.

Eh he was only a target when Agger looked to be sashaying out to Italy. Plus he's an own goal machine in the Carragher mold.
