Real Madrid v Lyon - UEFA Champions League

Arsenal are interested as Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol decides to leave Bernabeu!

There have been some rumours emerging from Madrid which could interest Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger as Fichajes. Net, a Spanish website, have been suggesting that Real Madrid defender Raul Albiol is leaving the Bernabeu in the summer in order to increase the chances of playing at World Cup 2014, Brazil.

The player knows his life at Real Madrid has come to an end and he will have to find a new destination where he gets more playing time under the belt, which in turn might increase his chances to board the plane to Brazil.

The defender does not feature in Jose Mourinho’s plans and has slipped down the pecking order further, especially with the emergence of Raphael Varane. Despite the failure at Real Masdrid, he is still a top player and the Gunners could sign him for as little as £8 million at the end of the season, which will be an excellent bargain.
