An interesting one when you consider that neither Everton or Madrid have a manager in place for next season.

Since when has not having a manager stopped Real buying players?

Of course it's a lie, but aside from that Fallani is too physical for La Liga: getting booked as much as he does in EPL, it's clear La Liga would not suit his style.

Steven, Sergio Ramos seems to get away with assault almost every game over there. But, overall, I think you're right. I can see him playing his natural game in Germany.

Bung him off to Chelsea and get a decent wedge and Lukaku as part of the deal. Chelsea will probably get a new billion pound striker in the summer and I reckon Lukaku would be frothing at the gash for regular football. Also, use any extra cash for a midfielder and unleash Barkley in his preferred role behind the striker.

If he goes anywhere, I would prefer it was abroad.

Fellaini to Madrid? Is it April 1st?!

Come off it, he'd stand out like a sore thumb playing for them. Charging into people, elbows flailing, hair blowing in the wind....I fail to see any reason why one of European footballs giants would want to recruit a player that's mediocre at best.

He doesn't even have a preferred position.

What could he possibly offer Real Madrid?? Much as he looks good playing for us, we have a midfield that's are nowhere near the level of Messrs Ozil, Khadira, Alonzo, Di Maria, Modric, Essien, and some bloke called Ronaldo.

I do rate Fellaini but to think he'd make any sort of impact in Spain is laughable. He'd be sent off every game.

I would be amazed if Fellaini was here next season. His 'arl fella will be on a few million commission from a move, and the club want the money for new blood.

I heard that Felli and Moyes are off to Madrid and we're getting Mourinho and a Ronaldo in return.

This deal is ring fenced.

Straight swap for Fellaini and Ronaldo would do for fact, a straight swap for Moyes and Mourinho would be good too !!!!

Jesus, what has this thread turned into?

I blame Moyes.....

I'd swap the entire board, coaching staff and players for all of Real's!

Barca might need a defensive midfielder following their result tonight. Moyes for BARCA shocker!

Yep, they can have Darron Gibson, and to replace Villa they can have "El Crapo" Steven Naismith, as well as "El Davo" Moyes.

Seems you have a bit of chip on your shoulder.
Moyes, now Gibson - they are 2 of our two of our top guys

I didn't say that Gibson was rubbish. Patrick said that Barca needed a defensive mid so I suggested Gibson.
