It seems that Al Ittihad (all in Arabic) are looking to sign either Samuel Eto'o or Kaka on a ten day loan for £3.4 million to play in the World Club Championship. It will of course never happen but with there being a whole five days until el derbi, actual news is thin on the ground.
Speaking of which, Real are apparently looking to rush back not only Ronaldo, but also Zidane, Baptista and Helguera back for the game on Saturday. All of which is great news being as all of them, in particular Baptista, are completely crocked. There's no news on the Real website as to how they're progressing, so we shall see.
