♫ The Boys Are Back ♫

Speaking of Asensio...

Liverpool (!), among other clubs, are rumored to be interested in signing the out-of-favor Blancos player. Interesting. By the way, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors of Liverpool’s interest in Marco.

Here is Real Madrid’s rumored response:

By the way, dear board, make sure you’re not too flexible with the meaning of the word “cut-price”.

Haaland Rumors

According to AS, Dortmund are about to launch a bid to keep Erling Haaland in their squad, by offering the player 15€. That’s almost double the salary he is currently receiving. That said, they aren’t really all that optimistic about their chances. Haaland himself expressed his desire to leave in the summer (remind you of anything recent minus the drama?). In fact, AS state that the player won’t consider any offers from his current club , while it’s claimed that he prefers a move to Real Madrid.

Big Benz’s Words

Awesome talk by Karim Benzema, regarding his mentoring the youngsters at Real Madrid.

Have a nice weekend Madridistas and may the madridismo be with ya all.
