The Show Goes On

So, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus have published yet another statement concerning the Super League. This proves many of us right yet again; The saga is here to stay. How do you think this will play out?

The details of the D. Alaba deal

According to this article , we now know some more details regarding Alaba’s switch to the Santiago Bernabeau. It seems that our new No. 4’s agent poketed 5.2m, while the player’s dad got 6.3m euros. His release fee is 850 - which means that a forced move by another club won’t be happening - and the man himself earns 19.47m/season.

A beauty from Bale in training

Check this out. A great move from the welshman to score a scorching dragonfire of a goal in training - hotter than the sun in the middle of July (get his reference? Also, ignore the fact that it’s actually the end of July)

Have a great day and an awesome August overall. May the madridismo be with you all.
