With the League Cup Semifinals and Copa del Rey Quarterfinals in the books, here's a look at the big news and rumour making headlines today. 1. Real Madrid will make a move for Manchester United's David De Gea if he is available on a free transfer once his contract runs out.

West Ham have big for Swansea's Gomis. (Source, SUBSCRIPTION REQUIRED: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/sport/football/6305806/Baf-time-for-Irons.html) 3. West Ham are also on the verge of signing Stephen Hendrie from Hamilton.

Gareth Bale has said he will turn down any offer to stay at Real Madrid.

Aston Villa owner Tom Fox has said he will not give into pressure to sack Paul Lambert. (Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2930443/Aston-Villa-fans-won-t-force-board-sack-Paul-Lambert-says-chief-executive-Tom-Fox.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490) My Thoughts: 1. Give it up Real, Casillas is your captain and a fine keeper! 2. Gomis is a young star with some promise. Would be a good buy but his asking price could be too high. 3. A great buy for the youth system. He's going very cheaply as well. 4. To be expected when you play for the Club World Cup Champions. 5. Lambert has done well without all the support of his owner. Club needs money brought in more than anything else.
