Here’s a little something to go along with the re-inclusion in the NT

Well deserved I’d say. The frenchman’s been nothing short of astonishing for Los Blancos and he’s kicked into a whole different gear recently.

And here’s a throwback to admire him even more. What a move that was!

Look who else got a call!

Hazard being self-conscious

Eden Hazard has received plenty of critisism over the span of two seasons at the spanish capital. He certainly hasn’t take LaLiga by storm as was expected of him. The man himself admits that there have been some occasions to which he didn’t rise and I think that’s fair to say. Let’s hope that - provided he stays- he delivers plenty of what made his Chelsea version great.

Transfer News

  • I know, I know “more Alaba news”, but here you go anyway. Looks like we’re drawing closer to the communicado official.
  • Pedrerol insisting that Mbappe will sign for Real Madrid. Cross your fingers boyz. I’m rpetty sure you’d love that to be the case.

And now we’re getting multiple reports that Real Madrid want Zizou to stay

Look, if we’re being honest, this isn’t a bad deal at all. If the coach and the board can somehow agree on what the needs are, then that’s wise and required step number uno.

But that’s not all

Marca reports that Real Madrid have offered Allegri a contract for 2 years plus an option for a third one, for which the ex Juventus coach will earn 10 mil. per season.

Yeesh! That’s a lot of rumours and offers.

But at least we know it won’t be Carlo next season

Well, that rules one candidate out.

Do keep in mind that it is perfectly normal for rumours like all of the above to circulate these days. Be patient. It’s very likely that some light will be shed after the final matchday.

Have a great day you guys. May the Madridismo be with you all.
