Florentino inaugurates another ‘low cost’ market (Martí Molina)

Real Madrid have wanted to advance to many major European clubs and are about to close the hiring of defender David Alaba. As he advanced Brand, the Bayern player, whose contract expires this summer and who broke off negotiations to renew with the Bavarian club, has already reached an agreement to arrive at the Bernabéu free. He would sign for four seasons with an annual salary of eleven million, the newspaper added. With this agreement, which has not yet been confirmed by Real Madrid, President Florentino Pérez is inaugurating a transfer market that, if the forecasts are met, will stand out for its low-cost operations, transfers and exchanges. Just in line with what happened in the summer of 2020.

Alaba’s father, George, denied the German newspaper picture that all the paperwork had already been signed. He acknowledged, however, that the whites are the ones best placed to get the services of the versatile 28-year-old Austrian footballer, who can play both on defense and as a winger. Liverpool was one of the clubs that had shown the most interest in the player, and had also been in the orbit of Barça, to the point that a verbal agreement had been published in some media between Alaba and Víctor’s candidacy. Source, which is denied from Yes to the Future. “There was nothing pairing up,” they nuance.

The covid punctures the bubble

The coronavirus has turned the football world upside down and punctured the bubble of a sport where everything was estimated at tens of millions. Clubs have had to tighten their belts and adjust their budgets downwards, and sports salaries have been one of the plots most affected. Without going any further, Barça had to negotiate a 30% salary delay with their stars in order to square the numbers of a course where, at the Camp Nou, more than 300 million euros will be lost in terms of income.

It is never a good time to face a financial crisis. However, at Barça this delicate economic situation has come in a context in which the club needs to renovate the locker room, which will be difficult to carry out, at least as quickly as it would take at the Camp Nou. One of the operations that best reflects this problem is the frustrated signing of Eric García. In the summer, the Catalan club already refused to incorporate the Catalan defender because it did not have the 15 million requested by Manchester City, even if it was paying it on comfortable terms. It will not arrive in this winter market either, after the meeting between the three presidential candidates (Joan Laporta, Víctor Font and Toni Freixa) and the management board (chaired by Carles Tusquets) ended without an agreement – the sky blue team was now asking about five million for the player. Therefore, the footballer, if he returns to the Camp Nou, will be from next season, at zero cost, once the contract with City expires.

Signing up and selling, a headache

On the other hand, at Barça there are not only problems with signing. Also to remove ballast. Last summer he could not enter everything he wanted in terms of transfers and could not find a buyer for players like Coutinho, who did not enter the plans of the sports secretariat. This year’s budget, reformulated once the agreement with the players has been closed in terms of salary, was expected to be sold before June 30 worth 80 million euros, a figure that now seems difficult to achieve .

FIFA estimated in September that transfers would fall by an average of 30% and the ECA added that turnover in major European leagues would fall by around 4 billion as a result of the pandemic. These numbers, however, were made when the second wave of the covid had not even arrived and all countries were confident of being able to make the stadium public before Christmas. With the current situation the forecasts will be much more pessimistic, admit the sources consulted.

The dilemma shared by Sergio Ramos and Leo Messi

The problems are universal. The more money a club made, the bigger the kick-off and the more effort had to be made to balance the numbers in the treasury. If in the European leagues salaries accounted for almost 63% of the budget, with the covid has exceeded 70%, above the security threshold proposed by the football estates. It is not surprising, then, that, in addition to the salary adjustment, many clubs look favorably on getting rid of some of their franchise players to balance the accounts. This is the case, for example, at Paris Saint-Germain, where its sporting director, Leonardo, acknowledged France Football that, due to the pandemic, “PSG does not currently have the means to pay for the team’s two stars, Neymar and Mbappé”. So, for the first time, I opened the exit to one of the two, which seemed unthinkable a few months ago.

Madrid fa figa i es que sense final of the Super Cup (1-2)

Real Madrid lost again, lost to Athletic Club (1-2) and will have to watch the Spanish Super Cup final on television. Two goals from Raúl García during the first half left a team coached by Zinedine Zidane against the ropes that took a long time to react. Karim Benzema scored the goal for the white team with 15 minutes left.

Marcelino’s approach surprised Zinedine Zidane in the first half, with a high pressure that did not know how to beat Real Madrid. The Basque team punished two errors by Lucas Vázquez playing on the sidelines. A loss of ball allowed the first goal of Raul Garci’a in minute 18 of party. His shot came in from the right hand side but Íñigo Martínez managed to save it with an unbelievable reaction stop. In addition, Varane was injured and was replaced during the break.

The scoreboard was able to move at the start of the second half, when Muniain wasted a good chance for Athletic Club and when Marco Asensio sent two balls to the post. Madrid adjusted the result with a goal by Karim Benzema (75th minute). A few minutes later, the VAR canceled out a second goal from the French striker for a clear offside.

Without energy and without the confidence of the first minutes, Athletic Club suffered to maintain the result during the last minutes of the semifinal in which Madrid desperately sought to send the game into extra time with a second goal that did not come . Athletic Club, then, will be Barça’s rival in the final.

Jovic torna a Frankfurt

A few hours before the semi-final, Real Madrid announced that Luka Jovic will return to the Eintracht in Frankfurt to finish the season. Signed a year and a half ago as a goal scorer, the Serbian striker has only scored two goals in the 32 games he has played with the white team. He has not played a minute since November 8 and has since been sidelined due to covid-19 infection, injuries or simply because he does not have the confidence of Zidane.

FC Bayern: First crisis – Flicks Bayern have been deciphered for the time being

DThe wind whipped the sleet in their faces as they left, thinking of the greatest disgrace of years past.

Following the elimination of the DFB Cup at Holstein Kiel, the FC Bayern players trotted speechless towards the cabin, and the mockery began on social networks.

The digital world was not enough for some Holstein fans, they went outside, sneered at the Munich bus as it left for the team hotel and shouted: “And you want to be a triple winner?”

Robert Lewandowski should actually get a break against Kiel


Out in the second round – that happened to the German record champions 20 years ago. For the first time in 17 years he lost to a lower class club, and the bankruptcy meant the end of a winning streak of 13 cup games. The Bavarians, long considered hardly defeatable, have gambled away the dream of defending the triple. “It’s a shock,” said coach Hans-Dieter Flick. “We are enormously disappointed.”

“At the moment it’s such a run”

2-3 against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Bundesliga, 5-6 on penalties against Kiel and lots of construction sites: the club is experiencing its first crisis in a long time. Around four months after their triple triumph, the Munich team is a mystery whether they are susceptible or weak in shape. Flick could only put it this way: “At the moment it’s such a run that we have.” Club boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and honorary president Uli Hoeneß left without a word. Fans and experts are wondering: What’s wrong with Bayern?

They have already conceded 31 goals in the three competitions (excluding penalties). They miss a lot of what made them so strong in the past year – dominance, self-confidence, creativity and stability. “Kiel punished that relatively callously,” said Thomas Müller. “We are of course served. One can imagine that the mood is not good ”.

The disgrace on the fjord has consequences. Flick, who is considered to be a “player who understands”, criticized his team sharply and is likely to be strict in the coming days and weeks. “There are no more excuses now. Lots of games, too little vacation – that’s just over, ”said the coach.

His dilemma: The team is obviously mental and physically at the limit. Above all, she lacks the necessary concentration, the Bavarians seem overplayed. The strain is enormous in this “mammoth season”, as the players call it. The winter break was short, with the team playing seven games in January alone. There is hardly any time for tactical training, the players can only recover briefly, the important midfielder Leon Goretzka was injured in Kiel. But that is by no means the only reason for Bavaria’s crisis.


Bayern trotted off the pitch after the bankruptcy against the second division side


The defensive weakness is not solely due to the defense. The Munich team are not close enough in the game against the ball and forward. “These are things that we addressed and also trained. The 1-1 draw was disappointing, ”said Flick.

The 2-2 in stoppage time, seconds before the final whistle, annoyed him even more. “I have to try to stop the cross just before the end and then just try to clear the ball one-on-one in the center.” Above all, Benjamin Pavard, who has been in shape for weeks, and Niklas Süle and Lucas Hernández, the teammates Leaving Alphonso Davies alone in the headquarters may feel addressed.

Holstein Kiel - Bayern Munich

It’s easy for the opponents to score against Bayern. Whether it’s against top teams in the Champions League or a second division club, it’s often the same pattern: One pass deep behind the defensive chain and it becomes dangerous. The Bavarians seem deciphered. The club legend and ARD expert Bastian Schweinsteiger also said this. It is unnecessary for Munich to stand so high when conceding the first goal, said the world champion.

Süle and Davies are far from top form

At the moment, Flick is often asked whether his team shouldn’t be lower. Her pressing was the key to success in the triple season, now that part of her style of play seems more weak than strength. Flick recently said they knew about the danger of high pressing and were working on it. He does not want to use the style of play as an explanation, sees the players as an obligation.

The 55-year-old recently rotated repeatedly. But no chain of defense works as hoped. Most recently he left Jérôme Boateng out twice in a row, in Kiel initially also David Alaba. Like Pavard, Süle and Davies are by no means in top form, the defense is not well established.

The substitutes do not impose themselves enough, and Bayern’s accesses are not yet working. Tanguy Nianzou is considered one of the most promising defensive talents in Europe, but is injured. Bouna Sarr is harmless offensively and not sure defensively, Marc Roca has not yet really arrived in Munich.

It was therefore amazing that he started on penalties – and that Süle, Pavard or Hernández didn’t shoot. Kiel’s goalkeeper Ioannis Gelios held Roca’s shot and made the sensation perfect. “Nobody blames him for that,” Flick said of Roca.

Perfect free kick from Sané

Douglas Costa has not been the hoped-for reinforcement either. Leroy Sané scored 2-1 with a perfect free kick in Kiel, but obviously needs time to internalize Bayern’s game. Flick gave his striker Robert Lewandowski a break against Holstein and replaced him. Bayern are more dependent on Poland’s goals than they can be.

“We don’t just have a plan A”

FC Bayern Munich was eliminated in the second round of the DFB Cup against Holstein Kiel. Coach Hansi Flick does not want to be accused of having entered the game with the wrong match plan.

Quelle: Stats Perform News

Bayern don’t seem hungry, not focused enough. Carelessness has crept in. It is discussed internally. There is also an offensive problem. “When I see our possibilities that we have created using the wings … When the last pass comes in like a shot and comes halfway up – there is also room for improvement,” Flick stated.

Sunday (3:30 p.m., Sky) they will receive SC Freiburg in the league, which has just celebrated five wins in a row. There are seven games in February, including the Club World Cup in Qatar. Then comes the round of 16 in the Champions League at Lazio. Flick says what everyone sees: “We have a lot to do.”
