I know being told "be patient" is hard to hear, but I'm afraid that's all that can be said. I also have been checking papers and on-line message boards for any scrape of information that would bring comfort, but fact is I don't see any news coming for at least a week or two.
Rafa's top targets (other than maybe Tevez)all play in La Liga. With their season not over yet, its doubtful any Spainish club is going to be dealing there best players away. Fact is most of these news stories are generated from rumors started by people who think they know what is going on, or papers who just make the crap up to sell papers. Right now we maybe doing a lot of talking behind the scenes, or with agents, but until Spainish clubs are fully engaged (once there season ends) your not going to see a final deal.
Fact is, there is also some gamemanship to all this. Its like a game of poker. Rafa does not want to show his hand. He may have more money this year than last, but not an endless piggy bank, so he's got to screwd. Most know who his targets are, but he's not going to give away how much he's willing to pay, or what plan B might be if things don't go right to plan. Besides, I think Rafa by his nature, likes to keep these things close to his chest.
