Podcast: Mercato Madness

Just because the season is over, doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to talk about. In fact the mercato is one of the things people seem to enjoy fighting talking about. You can try to sort out credible rumors, or you can just make up your own, or a little of both. And if that’s not your thing, then you can keep up with the players on national team duty, especially with the U21 Euros and Confederations Cup going on. Just because it’s the off season doesn’t mean things can’t get a little crazy.
