- At this point, it seems like Brahim Diaz is set for yet another loan move to AC Mlan,this time probably with an option to buy (seriously, I’m tired of this.. just make a solid offer to buy already).
#BrahimDiaz is almost done to #ACMilan from #RealMadrid on loan with option to buy (€20M). Brahim wants to stay at Milan and he hasn’t considered other possibilities. Scheduled a meeting in the next days to close the deal. Confirmed! #transfers https://t.co/nwYIZ71jbS— Nicolò Schira (@NicoSchira) June 19, 2021
- The Managing Madrid crew have already made a post about Carlo asking for James. Definitely a better love story than Twilight.
- Pau Torres as a potential CB aquisition for Los Blancos is nothing new, but with these pages reporting it, I thought I’d let you know.
ℹ️ Real Madrid are hopeful of signing Pau Torres in 2022, the player is also willing to wait. Madrid can't sign him this summer because there's no money. [@diarioas] pic.twitter.com/p1ru2OZxlz— Infinite Madrid (@InfiniteMadrid) June 19, 2021
Real Madrid have highlighted Pau Torres as an option to sign in the future.— PF | Transfer News (@PurelyFootball) June 19, 2021
They have been convinced by the 24-year-old centre-back but cannot afford to land him this summer. Instead they will look to land him next year. [SPORT] pic.twitter.com/tgBcdcYWFD
- Goal report that Real Madrid are interested in Dominic Calvert-Lewin. This is likely only a rumour because of Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival. Let us not forget that DCL was in red hot form last season. Do I believe this one? No. Still, think about this; If the name was Dominic Lewin-Calvert then the first letters would spell “DLC”. Huh, how about that for marketing...

Some info regarding our 2022/23 kit has leaked
Looks like an interesting choice. I liked the original kit back in the day. I’m not over the moon, but it looks nice. I’m guessing that he away or the third kit will be purple as well, which should bring back fond memories for Madridistas. So .... * Nero seal of approval *.

Griezmann, apart from FM, also plays... Yu-Gi-Oh!
Ok so hear me out. I came across this video the other day, in which Antoine Griezmann himself said he loved Yu-Gi-Oh! - that’s right, the card game and old anime show with the Egyptian gods, white dragons etc. So imagine this conversation between Martinez and Deschamps taking place during the later stages of a hypothetical France vs Belgium EURO final:
D. Deschamps : “Play your last pathetic player so I can end this, Martinez...”
R. Martinez: “My National Team has no pathetic players
Kaiba Didier... But it does contain... The unstoppable... Eden Hazard!!! “
D. Deschamps: “Aaaah!! Hazard! Impossible... Noone’s been able to summon him to the field!“
R. Martinez: “Hazard... Obliterate!!!”
(I know that those of you who watched the series back in the day, just read it in Yugi’s voice)
Have a very nice day, enjoy watching the Euros and commenting here with the rest of the gang. Oh and of course, may the Madridismo be with you.
