    This would be good news for the club; if we get Mascherano in January, we would be going into the summer with 1 EU spot open and possibly 2 or even 3, depending on if RCarlos and Samuel can get citizenship as well. I'd like to see one of those non-EU spots used to sign an eventual replacement for Zidane -- d'Alessandro, Diego, Alex (Fenerbahce) and maybe even Ronaldinho would all be good fits, in my opinion -- and maybe for another defender -- Coloccini, Alex (PSV), Juan, etc.

    FC Barcelona
    Nat'l Team:
    United States

    good for you, bad for everyone else-lol, especially if rc and sammy get theirs.
    btw coloccini has an italian passport i am sure. alex (psv) i would wait on for a year at least (i think chelsea has 1st rights to him, but they dont need him). d'alessandro and alex would be the best bets to replace zidane imo (from your list). diego isnt ready.

    By the start of next season...there will be NO non-Eu players on the squad.

    This is the general out look right now on when the 3 non-EU players will get their Spanish citizenships

    R.Carlos -> Feb/Mar
    Samuel - > Summer
    Ronaldo -> Summer

    Mascherano already has it wouldn't be an issue for the next transfer window.

    You have think, that Real must have their eye on a few non-EU players in the market if they are pushing to have all their players get their Spanish passports.

    A few names that they might be looking at are Tevez and Biglia.

    Tevez will probably move next summer and Biglia is a future star...Redondo part II

    D'Alessandro and Coloccini already are EU has already mentioned in this thread.

    Maybe they can make a move for Kaka or Diego...bc I don't know why we need so many open spots for....hmm..whats Ronaldinho's minimum release clause. :)

    i remember reading somewhere that the boca president is resigned to letting tevez go, but supposedly at the end of the current season. he also said that theres a minimum of 10 million pounds for his signature. tevez to madrid? who knows...

    Supposedly Atletico are talking with Boca about Tevez, so you might be right when you say Tevez to Madrid (just the wrong part of Madrid!) I think Tevez is a wonderful talent, but I am hesitant to go for him because he is not proven in Europe (look at Riquelme, who was amazing in Argentina, came over like 4 years ago, and only now is starting to show what he can do), will be expensive, and also will not be able to play where he is best, as a supporting striker like Raul was. I've seen a lot of him, and I think that he has the talent to play a #10 after Zidane, but I'm not sure he'd want to give up the striker spot he's so successful at.

    I am a huge D'Alessandro fan and have been since he was at River. I think he is a great talent, and his small size won't be too much of a disadvantage in Spain, where his amazing skill will be perfect. I would love for him to be Zidane's replacement; when did he get EU citizenship though? Is he part Italian, or does he already have German citizenship? Also, who is this Biglia? Is he a defensive and offensive standout like Redondo was, or more of one or the other?

    I hope Butrageno finds some good young non-EU players and convinces Perez to get them in January, whatever happens!
