Iker Bravo, a 17-year old (potentially sensational) Spanish ST at Bayern Leverkusen, appears to be signing with Atletico Madrid UNLESS recent Diario AS reports can be verified that Real Madrid are attempting to hijack the deal.

I honestly know nothing about this kid and understand this would be a signing for Castilla. But here’s a random highlight reel for you all to view. Overreactions are welcomed!
Back to Business...
After two days off, the team has returned to the practice field to prepare for next week’s UCL Supercup match.

Should Casemiro Be Worried?
Recent reports state that Carlo Ancelotti has reassured Casemiro of his starting position in the team. Although Tchouameni will likely start a multitude of games, Casemiro will be given the advantage in big games. Still...maybe Casemiro should be a little worried? Tchouameni will likely be fresher after the WC (to my knowledge he isn’t a nailed in starter for France), he is more press resistant, arguably more athletic, and simply offers more on the ball. If Rudiger and Mendy can solidify our defense structure, could Tchouameni potentially displace Casemiro?!

Let’s cause some MORE drama.....
Assuming Kroos + Modric start in the midfield and Rodrygo/Fede start at RW, who do you start at single-pivot in a 433?
