New wink from Mbappé to Real Madrid. The PSG striker spoke Monday at the presentation of his Foundation, called Inspired by KM, and among other things he said who were his two childhood idols in the world of football. Coincidentally, one is the current Real Madrid coach and the other is the top gunner in the history of the white team: “I’ve gone through phases, As a child my idol was Zidane. If you are a child and French, he has to be your idol. Then it was Christian, which I have been lucky to face. And Brazilians, how they play. “ The PSG player explained the reason for this project, focused on supporting almost a hundred children between 9 and 16 years old from unstructured environments. “Since childhood, I have always dreamed of doing what I do now. And now that I’m in that place, I want to give it back to the younger ones. We are not going to sell them dreams, but to support them and help them build them. We will do everything possible so they can get there. “ Real Madrid closely follows the steps that Mbappé takes, something that has already produced friction between the directives and high-sounding words by the PSG, such as those that Leonardo starred weeks ago after Zidane’s statements regarding the Argentine forward. The white plan is being fulfilled: Mbappé has not renewed yet with the PSG and ends contract in 2022; the idea is to attack his signing next summer, hoping that the player’s pressure on his club will take effect.

This erratic path it is explained by taking a look at the list of sports directors that Josep Maria Bartomeu has been hiring and firing for five years without letting any project settle. He arrived with Zubizarreta, which barely lasted a year because after the Anoeta crisis and the sanction against grassroots football he was fired. During the Rosell years, Zubizarreta dispatched directly with Bartomeu, who was, as he is now, sports vice president.After an interim without covering this place in which the Champions League was won and elections were called (even the managing board signed Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal on their own in an unprecedented event in the history of the club) Bartomeu trusted Robert Fernández, who also could not settle and was fired to place Pep Segura, which barely lasted a year. Now, its functions are covered by the tandem formed by Abidal and Ramon Planes.This way of doing things has led the club to those who arrive to dedicate themselves to undoing what their predecessors did. One signs Alcácer and another sells it, for example. One renews Marquis as a future option and another sends him to Juventus to incorporate Matheus Pereira to square accounts while signing King Manaj del Albacete to play in the subsidiary.Nor does anyone appear willing to assume the responsibility of signings such as Todibo, Wague or Aleñá’s exit while in base football things are not going much better and Víctor Valdés was hired as a youth coach and was fired as soon as Kluivert assumed the command of formative football without having any experience in this position.Before this aluminosis, neither Setién now, nor Valverde before have enough tools to be able to restore the building. Beyond the topicality of the first team, which wobbles after the change of coach, the reality is that the building shows signs of wear. The situation facing the newcomer Quique Setién has its origin in a lack of coherent sports policy and continued in time that also led Ernesto Valverde ahead.The current Barça problem is beyond who sits on the Camp Nou bench. A situation that the arrival of Setién will not solve because it is far above it. The preparation of the workforce and the last cases of the departure of Carles Pérez, Todibo and the exchange of Alejandro Marqués by Matheus Pereira respond more to cash emergencies than to sports policy however much from the directive the coach is designated as responsible for the first case.Since the achievement of the Triplet in 2015, Barcelona has spent 1,000 million euros on 24 signings, of which only 10 remain on the roster and only three of them (De Jong, Griezmann and Lenglet) have played more than 70% of the minutes this season. The rest (Umtiti, Dembélé, Semedo, Arthur, Arturo Vidal, Neto and Junior Firpo) cannot be consolidated as holders.On the other side, the list of players who have come out the back door in five years gives a dread: Arda, Aleix Vidal, André Gomes, Alcácer, Cillessen, Denis Suárez, Coutinho, Paulinho, Yerry Mina, Malcom, Todibo, Murillo and Boateng.
Conte referred to the recent news about the possible interest of Real Madrid and Barcelona in signing Lautaro for the next season, after “Toro” was the protagonist of an outstanding season, in which he scored 16 goals among all competitions .“The players remain focused. They are clear that what happens on the field is the most important thing. Market rumors count zero. You have to be focused,” he said.Lautaro, former striker of Racing Avellaneda, has played for Inter since 2018 and, after a first season in which he was a substitute for fellow countryman Mauro Icardi, he became an essential holder of the Conte team alongside Belgian Romelu Lukaku. Antonio Conte, Inter Milan coach, described this Saturday as “market rumors” that “count zero” information circulated in recent days on the possible interest of Barcelona or Real Madrid in his Argentine forward Lautaro Martínez. “Lautaro is only 22 years old, but I think he has enough maturity to understand that market rumors count very little in general”, said Conte, in the press conference prior to the important league match this Sunday of Inter, co-leader with Juventus Turin, against Lazio, separated by a point of league leadership.“Also after the closing of the winter market there were rumors about the future of some players that we could sell or sign.

The assessments carried out on Atlético final Wednesday confirmed the constructive of Renan Lodi in the present day, one in all the three in the First Division, as reported by RAC1 at midday, an issue for Cholo: the Brazilian is the solely pure left again of his squad, the solely footballer with no alternative. It’s both Lodi or a participant who performs out of his place (Saúl y Hermoso) or a boy from Atlético B (Manu Sánchez). There is no such thing as a different. When the competitors is resumed, whether it is lastly achieved, Lodi will lack coaching in comparison with the remainder of his teammates. The motion protocol is obvious: as soon as the constructive was identified, Lodi has been remoted and assessments have to be carried out on all the folks round him. The Brazilian winger has been faraway from the group till he passes this contagion part. At the second it continues to check constructive regardless of the proven fact that the signs associated to this illness started to be felt in March. The remainder of Atlético, in the meantime, will return to coaching individually tomorrow, beginning at 09:00, they may arrive in a staggered method at Cerro del Espino. On this first part the work can be completely “particular person or primary”, with the gamers unfold over the 5 fields of the sports activities metropolis (three on pure grass and two on synthetic grass), ribbons to outline the house for each, with out interactions with one another or with the technicians, who should hold a distance, though with a ball along with bodily, doing workouts with pikes or posts. In an analogous case it’s lovely, with the potential to maneuver from the middle to the left facet, however who isn’t comfy in that secondary place. He had been from Valladolid with out appearing there, consecrating himself in Espanyol as central and in the 4 video games he has performed on the facet, the final one in opposition to Sevilla earlier than the break as a consequence of the well being disaster, he has not satisfied Simeone. His different choice is Manu Sánchez, who has additionally given him motive to belief what he has performed this season. The boy, important for Atlético B, obtained all the reward at Atlético-Osasuna this season for his seriousness when defending and his impudence in elevating the band when he needed to play with the first staff. In León, earlier than the Cultural, he additionally stood out. Now he’s one in all the six youth squads that Simeone has referred to as after this break to shore up his squad (Dos Santos, Manu Sánchez, Toni Moya, Clemente, Riquelme and Valera): If LaLiga returns it is going to achieve this with matches each 72 hours, it wants lungs, males … And one other pure left again in his squad now that he doesn’t know when he’ll get better Lodi. Right here Simeone should begin interested by a hypothetical I like to recommend with out Lodi, or with Lodi nonetheless with out type. The primary resolution in his head is at all times Saul’s. This season he has began three video games on the left facet however there have been many extra that, in the change of Lodi, he needed to transfer to that demarcation to occupy it. That he doesn’t like isn’t any secret, that he at all times complies both, though the better of his circumstances (his stride, his arrival on the second line) are turned off by the distance with the purpose (in actual fact, his finest minutes this season had been coming simply earlier than the break due to the COVID-19, when he was already taking part in, Lodi seated, as a replacement, the middle). Simeone trusts him.
