|Mourinho and his team are already working for next season|
No doubt, among all those who participate in this tournament the great target, the most important goal for Mourinho is Javi Martinez. Athletic Bilbao midfielder meets all requirements demanded by the Portuguese. In fact, at his request, on the eve of the final of the 'Copa del Rey', there was a first contact between Real Madrid and Athletic, but the Basque club did not want to negotiate and showed the buyout clause of the player: 40 million euros.
As for names that sound to reinforce the right back of Real Madrid, the Dutch Van der Wiel is well placed, like the Polish Piszczek of Borussia Dortmund. While the number one candidate for the playmaker is David Silva, but Manchester City does not want to sell.
Age: 23. Price: 40 Million (€) Club: Athletic Bilbao
Javi Martinez is the Mourinho's favorite player to be the Xabi Alonso's partner in the midfield for the 2012-13 season. The Athletic player has good performances for the team when defensive work is necessary, but is also able to assemble the team play and can score goals at rival penalty area.
Age: 21. Price: 25 Million (€) Club: Rennes
Strong midfielder with a strong presence in defense, but has no quality to attack. Antonetti, his coach, does not think about him for next season: "He will not stay in Rennes". Also teams like Arsenal, Inter or Bayern are interested in him.

He is a right back with great offensive skills and Mourinho likes this but his main problem is the deficits in defending.

In fact, had an agreement with Valencia but the deal broke down because Ajax requested eight million euros (started asking ten). His agent said that Real Madrid would be a great choice for the player: "It is an absolutely top club and Gregory wants to go to a club like this". Chelsea is also interested in him.
Age: 27. Price: 25 Million (€) Club: Liverpool

Mourinho has seen his footballistic evolution of in the Premier. David Silva, 26 years old, has established as a technical player with great vision of the game and also strong character. His signing for Real Madrid would bring more pressure to Özil.

Manchester City would not accept bids below 45 million euros.
