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.
Real Madrid president Perez called Allegri three years ago. Allegri turned the offer down because he had an agreement with Juventus to stay.— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) May 15, 2021
Now Allegri is available, there’ve been direct contacts and he’d accept Real Madrid job.
There are three names in the list - Raúl too.
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.
HAALAND & MBAPPE
Both forwards are at 39 goals a piece this season. The next 10+ years with these two will be something special for football.
ISCO BREAKING NEWS
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.
