MU positions itself on Varane
The Spanish press revealed this weekend that Real Madrid could let slip their French central defender, Raphaël Varane, next summer. The Merengues want the 2018 world champion to extend his contract, but, obviously, the former Lensois would not be inclined to do so soon. A reason for the Madrilenians not to retain it if the opportunity arises in the summer. And according to the English press of the day, here the Manchester Evening News, the information did not go unnoticed by Manchester United. According to the media, the Red Devils would have positioned themselves to make the player and Real understand that they were interested in his profile. With the possible departure of Ramos and why not Varane, would this be the start of a new era in central defense next season at Casa Blanca?
CR7 equals Pelé
A new goal yesterday against La Spezia (3-0 victory for Juventus) and that makes 767 career goals for Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese became yesterday the third top scorer in the history of football, but above all came back on a par with another living God, King Pelé. This does not fail to ignite the Italian press this morning, which speaks of a “historic” evening . “CR767 like Pelé,” laughs La Gazzetta dello sport . For Tuttosport , “Cristiano is indeed the King of Juventus”. The Portuguese is therefore now on the podium of this prestigious ranking. In front of him, he has another Brazilian, Romario, then the Austrian international from the 1930s to 1950s, Josef Bican, who leads the way with 805 goals. CR7 is therefore only 38 goals away from becoming the greatest goalscorer of all time!
Suarez’s famine worries Atlético
All the Madrid press have been talking about only one thing for a day or two: the derby between Atlético de Madrid and Real which will take place on Sunday afternoon. It’s a real final for the title especially on the side of Casa Blanca which is still 5 points behind the Colchoneros and which must get closer if it wants to keep its title. Diego Simeone’s men, for their part, hope that their striker, Luis Suarez, will regain his effectiveness. Silent for 5 matches, as Marca indicated this morning, he will try to remove “the bad luck” which has been felt in recent weeks on the results of Atléti. Thomas Lemar and his teammates hope the Uruguayan’s famine is over soon.
