Goal.com has it that Real Madrid and Benfica have agreed on a fee for Coentrao. The only hurdle so to say is now the contract between Real Madrid and Fabio Coentrao.

TalkingaboutMarcelo. Should we not question the motivation behind this transfer? I mean, Real Madrid already has the magical Marcelo (after last season, yes he is magical) on the left. We have Arbeloa as his cover on the left. So why pay 22 million euros for
