Looking forward to a potential Raul VS Xavi
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, it’s a given that you know about Raul being one of the candidates to take over after a possible Zidane departure. It is also no secret that our fierce rivals’ coach hasn’t exactly set world football ablaze this season. Some cules have been whispering the name “Xavi” recently - yes, their midfield legend. He is coach of Al Saad and he sets his team to play a brand of football similar to -you guessed it!- Pep’s Barcelona. If Real Madrid and Barca do indeed decide to give the coach’s position to their respective legends, the Clasico would instantly have another layer of heat and interest added to it!
So, would YOU like to see such a clasico? I know I would!

Some more seemingly obligatory Mbappe rumours
According to AS, Mbappe wants to play for Real Madrid and a possible (probable?) Zinedine Zidane departure won’t change that.
❗Mbappé has already decided to play for Real Madrid. Zidane's departure will not change his decision. #rmlive— Los Blancos Live (@LosBlancos_Live) May 20, 2021
