Training at RM City
Training is proceeding normally for those at the base of operations. What would ou call this one? Duel of the left backs?

Milinkovic-Savic interested in RMA move
♫ We’re beautiful...
It’s true ♫
Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is rumored to be interested in a Real Madrid move, via Il Messaggero. This adds to an already impressive list of players whose dream is to play for the Royal Whites. SMS would add more physicality and a true attacking thread to our midfield. Would you snatch him given an opportunity, Madridistas? Could he wrestle minutes away from Camavinga, Fede and even Toni in the near future?
Martinez on Lukaku and Hazard
The man just can’t catch a break with all these injuries. Think he can get back to
his best at least being healthy? Apart from Real Madrid, the Lukaku news must be devastating for Chelsea.
Belgium coach Roberto Martinez: "Romelu Lukaku is suffering from muscle fatigue, same as Eden Hazard. They're not in best conditions to play. They're leaving the national team camp due to these problems - I don't know how long it will take". #Belgium #RealMadrid #CFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) October 9, 2021
Oh for heaven’s sake...
| Leonardo: "Even from Karim Benzema I see a lack of respect for Kylian Mbappé. After the goal he was holding Kylian's hand. This is disrespectful to PSG." @FabrizioRomano #rmalive pic.twitter.com/8j6BaGZagu— MadridZone (@TheMadriddZone) October 9, 2021
(It should be obvious but this is a joke and it’s mostly here as an excuse for me to write the song)
♫ Whatever the weather
We gon’ be better together
So what’s up babe?
What about us?
Cause we’ve been watching and waiting
Why don’t you give it and take it?
So what’s up Mmmbop?
What about us? ♫
but on a serious note...
PSG director Leonardo to Festival dello Sport: "From Madrid they deny, but I think Real Madrid have been doing a job to buy Mbappé [as a free agent] for a long time. For two years they have been speaking publicly about Mbappé. This must be be punished”. #PSG #RealMadrid pic.twitter.com/qM3zZizOm2— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) October 9, 2021
That’s right, I’m reminiscing
