When you think about Valencia, three players come to your mind. Two Davids, and Raul Albiol. He joined Real Madrid on a 15 million euro fee, and signed a five-year contract.

Third player in this era and the second Spaniard in Perez's career.

For those who don't know, Raul Albiol is a DEFENDER. He has nice a...I mean he usually plays as a central defender, sometimes as a holding midfielder.

Raul is 23, 1.87 m, and doesn't use too much hair products.

The main reason for buying Raul is that Manuel Pellegrini expects Sergio Ramos to be full right-back, which mean that Albiol will be in the centre.

During five seasons in La Liga he received only one red card.

Finally, we have someone "cheap" in Galacticos era. Other news say that Royston Drenthe will probably be playing in Florentina from this Monday.
