Congratulations everyone: Real Madrid Juvenil A are UEFA Youth League champions for the first time ever.

Kristofer McCormack has your post-game article here. Also: Castilla Corner will have a podcast about the game released on Thursday for our Patrons, and Kiyan Sobhani will touch on the game in his column this week.

Oh, and, apparently Lionel Messi wants to leave Barcelona, and Barcelona want to take Messi to court. I’m no lawyer, but it seems fuzzy if Messi can actually leave for free or not. Either way, this is a win-win: Messi leaves for free; or Barcelona and Messi fight it out in court awkwardly while they sour the divorce of club and legend.

So yeah. Good day!


Real Madrid still have to complete the transfer of Oscar Rodriguez.
