Jose Mourinho: Won't be missed by Vilarrubi

It was announced on Monday night that Mourinho would be parting company with Madrid at the end of the current Primera Division season, bringing to an end a turbulent three-year spell in charge of the club.

During that time, Mourinho has had several high-profile run-ins with Madrid's arch rivals Barca, including poking Tito Vilanova in the eye during a Spanish Supercopa match and claiming UEFA favoured the Catalan club following an ill-tempered Champions League semi-final.

And Vilarrubi, vice-president of Barca's Institutional Area, is glad to see the back of him.

He told Catalunya Radio: "Now I can say it, Mourinho has been a scourge.

"Seeing him leave is a positive for Spanish football because he had created a negative atmosphere."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
