Ahead of Sevilla.

The team trained yesterday in preparations to face Sevilla on Sunday. Sergio Ramos and Vinicius Junior trained indoors. Ramos is a doubt for the Sevilla game, while Vinicius Junior will probably return to training today.

Will Hazard continue?

Since the game against Chelsea, rumours suggest Hazard is on the transfer market, with Real Madrid asking €50 millions for him. There is another speculation that one of the Zidane’s demands to continue as Real Madrid’s coach is that Real Madrid does not sell Hazard.

Juve is dreaming of Zidane.

According to AS, Juventus is dreaming of Zidane to replace Pirlo for the next season.

Updates about the Super League

According to Cope, Real Madrid still think Super League is the solution for football and will try to reach a friendly agreement with UEFA. However, per that report, UEFA’s president will propose to ban Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus from European competitions for two years. The other 9 Super League clubs renounced the breakaway to UEFA, but they will have 5% of their revenue from European competitions withheld for 1 season.

A message from the mods.

Fellow Madridistas, after the defeat against Chelsea, we are noticing an increased level of offenses in the comments section. We are not happy with the defeat either, but this is not a reason to offend or fight with each other. Please engage in discussions with respect.
