The Daily Merengue is a place where you can feel free to discuss all things football. Do not be alarmed by the overt RMCF bias. It’s in the name!

#1 - The Wall
The only thing that could be worse than losing Courtois would be losing Vinicius. It is going to be an interesting uphill climb for Real Madrid this season. We know the Blancos are always spoiling for a fight but the steepness of the slope has kept gradually increasing since the start of last season. It’s getting harder to climb.
Someone clearly forgot to consult our scouts on MM
The penny pinchers
The market responds to incentives.. Or something like that. Hopefully there’s a free agent GK who wants to play for free.
The backroom noise
Well.. Trying to sign De Gea was a cry for help. So we know they don’t believe Lunin is good enough. Not now, but in general. Talent is what it is. He’s not 18. He’s been around for years now and they should trust him to fill-in for Courtois because that’s literally what he’s there for.
PSG is behaving in a toxic way with Mbappé. Qatar is willing to ban him from playing if he does not renew or agrees to be sold. Real Madrid have to take a step and unlock the situation.— Madrid Universal (@MadridUniversal) August 11, 2023

Starting XI Updates
I sure hope Lunin does not go out of his way to show why nobody believes in him. The club might be forced to look for a Courtois replacement or something even more drastic.. A Lunin replacement.
Oh.. Fede is still not in the provisional XI for opening day.

Nope. It was always a throw-away season
