Marcos Alonso has emerged as a surprise target for Real Madrid this summer in more ways than one according to reports in Spain. The reigning LaLiga champions are said to be interested in signing the Chelsea left-back to play a more central role at the Bernabeu. However, his father is said to be against the move and wants his son to play for either Atletico Madrid or Barcelona if he does return to his homeland.
It is well known that Barcelona viewed Christian Eriksen as their contingency plan if they failed to sign Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool but new details over the club's plans to move for the Tottenham Hotspur playmaker have come to light in the Spanish press of late. The 26-year-old was even approached to discuss the idea of moving to the Camp Nou as a long-term replacement to Andres Iniesta with scouts regularly travelling to England to watch him play.
James Rodriguez wants a move to the Premier League and would prefer to join Arsenal or Liverpool if Zinedine Zidane remains in place as Real Madrid manager for the foreseeable future. The Colombian playmaker has been in fine form on loan for Bayern Munich this season and the Bundesliga leaders are keen to trigger their option to sign the former Monaco and Porto player to a permanent deal.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
