So it is not official yet, but it seems that Canales is already in the bag and will be calling the Bernabeu home soon Marca, AS, and Sport  are reporting that Madrid have reached a verbal agreement for Canales and pretty much  all that is needed is his signature and some other minor details. Racing will receive 6 million euros and just as was expected the 18 year old will remain for one or two more years on loan. He many other options, but when Madrid comes a knockin’ its hard to say ‘no’.

Van Nistelrooy is just about set to leave Madrid. Understandably, Van Gol is looking for minutes in order to take part in his last world cup, and he knows that staying with Madrid he just might miss that flight. Many clubs had shown interest in the veteran striker but it looks like German club Hamburg has obtained his services. Hamburg’s medical staff arrived in Madrid to examine Ruud’s physical state which he has passed and it will only be a matter of hours until Van Gol is announced as Hamburg’s newest player. So sad to see him go, but this is probably the  best for him. Truly a grand professional and an even better person. Mucha suerte crack!

Lastly, Real Madrid have presented today their project to help Haiti after the massive earthquake that hit trapping and killing many. The Real Madrid Foundation and the organization  ‘Acoger y Compartir’ will come together to help rebuild the St. Gerard School in the Carrefour-Feuilles neighborhood of Port-au-Prince. They also have plans to build a football and social academy for children to obtain the proper health and nutrition. Raul, Casillas, and Ramos attented the presentation  of the Project Haiti. Real Madrid President Florentino Perez said the following about the plans to help Haiti:

“Our goal is to help rebuild the future. We have another inherent humanitarian challenge before us which is none other than to rebuild the St. Gerard School, where 300 children were trapped in the rubble. Haiti needs us all and this project is of the utmost importance.”

Another Spanish club that has extended their hand of support to Haiti is Barcelona, who have donated 250,000 euros for Haiti relief. The people of Haiti need all the aid they can get and it is great to see the world of football doing their part to help out.
