Using a banned Raiola


With Spurs’ Danish player Christian Eriksen and Real Madrid already establishing a verbal agreement that would see the Dane moving to the Spanish capital at the end of the season, directors at the La Liga club are now concerned that the English side reaching the final of the 2018-19 Champions League may complicate or potentially even jeopardize the move. It’s feared that a Spurs win in their debut final may see the English club do all in their power to retain the midfielder.

The next Old lady manager

Should Allegri leave the Serie A champions we can however exclude Antonio Conte returning since the former Chelsea manager is very close to joining Inter. On the other hand Pep Guardiola is the name that is exciting Bianconeri fans, but Manchester City have no intention of letting out of his contract which still has two years in it and an annual salary of €19 million- this route can also be excluded.

Decision time

Atletico Madrid face a decision on Alvaro Morata’s future this summer with the striker currently on loan from Chelsea, say Diario AS.
