I think Xabi ends up in Madrid beginning in '25/'26. Carlo signed a new deal but I don't expect that he'll last the entirety of it. It would benefit Xabi another year with Leverkusen and having a CL campaign before stepping into the fire at Madrid. He's in his early 40s, he has time to be patient.

If Leverkusen wins the title i don't know if there's a reason for Xabi Alonso to stay. Keeping Bayern away from the title two seasons in a row? It would be quite an achievement as Hitzfeld and Klopp are the only ones who have done it in the last 30 years but playing in CL could harm Leverkusen results in Budesliga. I know they manage in all fonts this season but CL is at another level compared to Europa League. Leverkusen doesn't have the squad depth to be competitive everywhere and fight for the title again.

I also believe Xabi Alonso will eventually end up at Real but since Ancelotti extended he could also go to Bayern before moving to Real. It would also be typical Bayern to bring Alonso after losing the title to him.

And what experience Xavi Hernandez had? they trusted him only because he was playing there as a player.

Playing there alone or most successful central midfielder of all time vs Michel who was mediocre before coaching Girona much less as a player

What experience 🤣

Experience winning at every level & playing under the greatest coaches of modern era vs Michel

Winning and actually playing well in Qatar that entertains the fans makes it irrelevant if it was in Série A or Mexican league

Michel with two unsuccessful managerial stints in Spain prior to Girona - one of which his Hercules side finished last in Segunda

Get a grip :rolleyes:

The former vice president of Valencia Miguel Zorío stated this Tuesday that he had presented Peter Lim, Valencia's majority shareholder, with an offer of 250 million euros for the percentage of shares that the Singaporean leader has in Valencia, around 90%.

Through a statement in his group 'Marea Valencianista', Zorío explained that he sent the offer to Lim's home in Singapore, as well as to Germán Cabrera, lawyer for Meriton Holdings in Spain, to Layhoon Chan, current president, and to Jorge Mendes, Lim's partner and player representative.



If Lim accepts, Zorío will prove, together with the financial entity with which it already works, the availability of funds to make the payment, before carrying out a 'due diligence' that will last three months to analyze the financial reality of the company. At the end of this 'due diligence', the final offer would be made to the buyer and in the next 30 days the sale of the club would be signed, the statement states.


Zorío highlighted that if the Valencia City Council does not approve the club's agreement to finish the stadium, thus having urban planning benefits, the Singaporean will accept the offer "sooner or later", although this offer ends on January 31, as Zorío stressed. However, the businessman said that he will have that money until 2028. He also highlighted that he has guarantees from a financial institution and an agreement with a construction company to finish the Nou Mestalla within a period of three years.

Athletic Bilbao and his great fans in that great stadium destroying Barça millions and his super millionaries players.
Big teams are taking the cup more seriously than in previous years, it's a way to save your season if you can't win the league or champions league.

I'm enjoying Barca going through crisis as much as the next guy but I have to ask exactly, what even is the issue exactly? One moment it seemed fine and next thing you know you have this crying bitch desperately trying to paint himself as a martyr.

If I'm not mistaken, Barca won the league last season quite convincingly and are into the next round of the CL this season. I understand they've had an underwhelming league campaign but is that it? Based on the kind of language being thrown around you'd think they were languishing down in 10th place.

I don't hear so much drama out of fucking Chelsea and Man Utd who are underperforming far, far worse than Barca - and yet every time this self-important bitch opens his mouth these days it's oh lament and woe be upon me.

What am I missing exactly?

Think Inzaghi this time last season.

Barca is basically Inter financially, but without Inter's current form.

Oh, and in Xavi's typical fashion, he has to blame others for stopping him from working while 'taking responsibility'

Technically he’s trash human being but also technically not rapist, like no charge against under law. I really don’t have faith that he’s learned and grown, his girlfriend is still with him, could be abusive relationship but in the end, it’s their matters.

it’s funny that he didn’t complain or reacted even at that moment, just trash talk but the league decided to investigate.
