Per Fabrizio, Allegri has been contacted about being our new head coach from next season. Time for something new, no? So by my count, we’re on pace to potentially see Zidane, Ramos, Varane, Vazquez, Isco, marcelo and maybe Jovic leave the club this summer. Allegri is a master tactician and defensive disciplinarian, and if all these guys leave. He’ll be coming into a fresh squad barring Benzema, asensio, carvajal etc.


Neymar professes his great desire to play with the god of football, Cristiano Ronaldo. Not me. This comes just in time as Juventus are doomed for Europa League football and AC Milan have been playing like it’s the 90’s again in order to make sure of it. Ronaldo could look to PSG to save him from his Juventus challenge.


Both forwards are at 39 goals a piece this season. The next 10+ years with these two will be something special for football.


I googled isco’s name today to look for any credible news involving him with a transfer. And everything came back in spanish. I couldn’t understand it, so there’s no Isco news today.



Zidane still coy on his future. Man Utd trying to low ball us for Varane as he enters the last year of his contract with us.
