I don't have any inside info, but a very, very strong hunch that Figo will be sold this summer.

Not because he doesn't feel loved, as he has been saying these past weeks, not becuase Real doesn't want him anymore... but more because it makes sense for both sides.

Figo is due his last big contract... and he wont get it with one more year under his belt. He is having a great season and that might be enough for a team to give him one last lucrative 2-3 year contract.

Real knows that in one year he will walk, they can make 15-25 million euros with him and use it towards their star signing this year. Plus Beckham can easily move to his natural position.

I really think that all that Figo is saying right now is a ploy between him and Florentino so that both can save face this summer when he is sold.

I know that it's wishful thinking but I would go for Albelda, Xavi Alonso, Pirlo, Samuel, Chivu or Aimar. Preferably two out of three from this list.

I too have the feeling Figo might be sold. But had it as well last year and he stayed. But this will be the last chance to get good money for him. Hes 31 already and we have Becks/Juanfran (or maybe we get Joaquin???) who can play his position. Hmm... well we'll see.

Remember there is an important competition this summer. Prices for players can go up and down regarding performances in the Eurocup.

Figo was interviewed last night in El Larguero and it seems like he is "pissed off with the whole world".
I also feel he might leave after the Eurocup.
Hey Mills he does seem pissed off doesn't he? If he is, then he will leave for sure unless things change... but my theory is that it is all an act. Floren and Valdano are well aware of everything and will sell him this summer.

sorry but Chelski payed an over inflated price for Makelele who is in his 30's and I think we can get even better from the russian for Figo.

you wouldnt believe with how much hatred im saying this but Figo has reached his top...its all going to go downhill from now on....the world already knows what he can do...its not like hes going to be a big surprise at the EuroCopa...what you could have gotten for him in Jan will be the same as whatu get for him in June....he gets 32 in Nov. doesnt he ?

When has not seem pissed off at the world, even when he is next to his incredibly goodlooking wife, he looks pissed :rollani:

I have always felt (no basis for this opionon, other than personal observations) that he was not happy with the Zidanes and Pavones becuase it stole the soptlight from him. He was also so unhappy with his teribble performance in the World Cup, he never did smile again.

As for predictions, I think he will leave, as will Cesar and Solari (again :tongue: ) as to the others, I see eveyone of them staying. Even Ruben.

maybe im wrong, but i always thought he didnt feel well with RM. He signed in thought Perez wont ever get Presi and when he got and Figo was presented he looked as if the would had just set. He did arrange himself with the club, but i always hearing him saying he dreams to play in England. He'll go as soon as he gets the chance for.

But why did he try to say in El Larguero (Cadena Ser)? I was listening to the program and I couldn't believe what I was listening.

He said: "The Barcelona supporters are more respectful with the players than the Real Madrid ones", "Living in Barcelona? Why not? I love the city, people always was good with me. In Madrid? No, I love the sea and I can't live here. Besides in Barcelona I have more friends". He also said "In Barcelona I have more friends, we went out with other players, the atmosphere in the team was better. I have few friends here". "I feel fu(ked in Madrid and I don't like it".

He also critiziced Santiago Segurola (IMO, one of the best, if not the best, sports journalists of Spain, director of EL PAIS) and the Diario Sport.

He also said that his old agent, Jose Veiga, betrayed him: "He signed good contracts for me, but he took some decissions without counting with my opinion, the last thing he signed for me was the Real Madrid contract".

The Real Madrid press doesn't say anything about those words, but I promise that I listened them.

I don't know which are his intentions, but he should not mention our club, if he's not happy in Madrid, it is his problem.

I would be pissed if I were him. He's clearly a more effective player than Zidane. He has more power, speed, has more assists, goals, wins more games. He is named MOM more than Zidane yet because of Zizou's occasional moments of brilliance, Figo will never been seen in the same light.

If cards are down, Figo shows, it's as simple as that. He doesn't need Thierry Henry, Robert Pires and David Trezeguet, he often times wins on his own.

There is some truth in this, Zizou is head over heels the best player since Maradona. However you could make the argument that in current day he Figo can be more effective in terms of making assists and scoring etc..

I'm not sure what will happen with him after Euro. I wouldn't be surprised if he left, but I think he's going to continue on for just one more year and then go back to Sporting.

To me, it seems that Figo isn't happy and playing well unless he's the star and captain of the team he's on. Now that he gets overshadowed consistently, I think his play suffers because he doesn't have the spotlight (not that I'm saying that he doesn't deserve the spotlight).

But I don't think we'll see a Figo transfer unless he has a good EuroCup. What does he make? Is it 6mil dollars or 6mil euros? That's too big a salary for most any other club.
