‘Rey Midas’ Monchi does it again, with Lucas Ocampos

first_imgLucas arrived to very young Europe, just 17 years old, from the River Plate Buenosairean. He was signed by Monaco for 13 million to lend it to Marseille three and a half seasons later, in the winter of 2015. That summer, the Olympique bought the footballer and later yielded a campaign to the Genoa Italian. Half a year later he went to Milan, where he would certainly coincide with Suso. After being important for two seasons at the Côte d’Azur club, Monchi decided to bet on him, very wisely. Still 25 years old, Ocampos will be one of the candies of the next summer market.

Coutinho, the most affected by Barça with lower wages

first_imgIn Barcelona, ​​the first squad, to which Coutinho belonged until this summer, announced on Monday a cut of 70% in the months in which the Alarm State lasts, extended by the government until April 11. This cut is less than that applied by Bayern players since in Bercelona they forgive enough salary as the months progress but not an annual cap already set as they have done in Germany. Phillipe Coutinho is one of the names on the FC Barcelona start list. The Brazilian went on loan to Bayern this season in exchange for 8.5 million euros and the Bavarians decided to take care of all the salary, thus alleviating the salary mass of the Blaugrana, who are looking for a definitive exit from the midfielder in the next market. Now, with the break due to the coronavirus pandemic, Coutinho is among the most affected at the salary level. In Barcelona he signed one of the highest contracts in the squad for which he receives between eleven and thirteen million euros a year, which now for Bayern. As a result of the league break and lack of income, the Bavarians agreed to a cut with their players of 20% which leaves Coutinho in a tab of between 8.8 and 10.4 million euros. Taking as reference the official dates on the confinement, although it is expected to be longer, Coutinho would have received in Barcelona a sum between the 10 and 12 million euros, more than what, it seems, will charge this year in Munich.Barcelona have recovered part of the investment they made in Coutinho in 2018. The Blaugrana club entered Bayern’s 8.5 million euros for the loan and released one of the most expensive chips in the squad of a player who did not offer the performance expected. The Bavarians, on the other hand, have been more economically affected since Coutinho has not given the expected return on the field and is going to receive one of the highest wages. The Brazilian, in addition to not being reunited with his football, will see his income decrease and he will have to find a new destination when the market opens.Your short-term futureCoutinho’s short and medium-term future leaves two certainties: that he will not continue at Bayern and that he will try to leave FC Barcelona. The Brazilian is interested in returning to the Premier League and, according to the English press, has five clubs interested in him: Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City.last_img read more

Ceballos: “I have not spoken to Zidane since I left”

first_imgArteta positive: “I got up in the morning and saw Arteta’s positive. We were quarantined. After the quarantine, there were players with symptoms, but we are all fine. They have not tested any of us.”He has said that Guardiola is the best coach: “It is what I think because I identify with his way of playing and at Arsenal in three months I have learned a lot with Mikel Arteta.”He also identifies with Setién: “Yes, because he has an associative game where they want to maintain high possession and reach the attack zone with many passes. I identify with that type of coach.”Turn to Barcelona ?: “No, all this does not mean that Madrid does not play like this, it has always been a more vertical game, but in 90% of the games they are in control of the game. With players like Modric and Isco it is impossible not to have possession” .Would you like to return to Real Madrid ?: “Hopefully. I now have a contract with Arsenal. I bet to come here because it was a strong plate. Right now in Madrid it is difficult to play with the players there. Now I focus on being important in a club.”Have you spoken to Zidane ?: “I haven’t spoken to Zidane since I left. It has to be difficult to wear a locker room with so many players. I don’t think Zidane talks to the loan players.”Do you speak to someone from Real Madrid ?: “I have had calls from Butragueño, José Ángel, club preparers, the medical service and players.

‘The Factory’ is green

first_imgSintes, Miguel Gutiérrez and Morante, three of the pearls of Juvenil A. The quarry as a vaccine against the economic crisis it is causing and that will leave behind the Covid-19. That is the recipe that Javier Tebas has recommended to the clubs LaLiga to sustain spending, including Real Madrid. But what is in Factory white that could make an immediate jump to the first team? The Juvenile is still cooking …In Valdebebas there is talent approaching the limits of the first team, also in Juvenil A by Dani Poyatos. There is a quartet of caliber players, all of them U19 internationals: Miguel Gutierrez (left side), Pablo Ramón (central), Xavi Sintes (midfielder) e Ivan Morante (midfielder, recently signed from Villarreal). All four entered the last U19 roster and they are Generation Z of Madrid, but they have not even acted with Castilla. Not a party between all. The closest to the first team has been Gutiérrez. Zidane does know him, because he made him play against Galatasaray in the Audi Cup last summer, but the same thing happens to him as to Fran García. Being Madrid’s left back is very expensive.Whether you can promote them to the first team now or not, the club is still trying to find jewelry. He does it with the peace of mind that, if the door of the first team is closed, they will also generate benefits in the accounts of the Madrid entity. In the last decade it sold stonemasons for € 245M, Factory it’s a mine. In one way or another, Valdebebas always produces. Castilla have not been a reliable element this season. Raúl’s work has been left unfinished. But you can draw conclusions. In goal and defense there has not been a superlative footballer this season. Altube (20 years old), chosen by Zidane to be the third goalkeeper, has not excelled in the 12 games he played with the subsidiary: only in two did he leave his goal at zero. Belman (21), the other tenant of the goal, is injured. If we move, line by line, forward, there are hardly any certainties. Only Fran García (20) on the left side has been really constant. Bolaños de Calatrava’s roadrunner has already debuted with the first team and is a round-trip player of the likes at the Bernabéu. But his bad luck is that would have to enter the most competition area per square meter of the club. As ‘three’ are Marcelo, Mendy, Achraf could play there and Reguilón hopes to return. As central, one of the big bets is Mario Gila (19), who has just been renewed until 2024. He is an U-19 international, but his experience is limited to 21 matches in the Second B. From the source (21) has lived an irregular season and already stuck to the other band, there has been no owner in the competition Guillem-Sergio López on the right side …The highlight of Raúl’s subsidiary comes in a very specific position, the core. The Cordovan pair Antonio Blanco-Miguel Baeza. The first, champion of Europe with the U19, is a midfielder with manners and leadership. Perhaps, along with his countryman, the most outstanding of this castillista generation. Baeza (20), a few meters ahead, scores the goal. He was the top scorer of Castilla (nine goals) before the break. Offers have and probably if the economic crisis in football progresses over time, the more interested there will be.center_img The shadow of injuriesThe problem of calibrating the preparation of white promises is complex. Gelabert, Pedro, Rodrigo Rodrigues… several of the players with the best potential have suffered serious physical mishaps in recent months. Gelabert is highly valued in Valdebebas and has offers from abroad, but two injuries (knee and clavicle) in the last two seasons they have become an unknown quantity. This course, with Castilla, only 13 appearances. Too little to break through. Pedro was the starting point for Castilla (four goals in 18 days) and in the summer he had rejected Primeras, but he also stopped his knee in its tracks. He is recovering from a ruptured crusader, internal and external meniscus. Rodrigues, Brazilian from the Calafat factoryFor his part, he is in the process of recovering a meniscus and his return to the playing fields is uncertain. It will be one more ‘signing’, but it is not yet clear when. Even the Argentine Feuillassier, another who moved into the orbit of the first team with a debut included in 2017, was slowed by a crusader break. Gelabert, on the Di Stéfano lawn.last_img read more
