The international break serves annoying feelings, but don’t worry about your top stars getting injured, many of them are already pulling out from their respective national teams. We know how that works, right? Let’s look at some hot topics around the beautiful game, shall we?
What’s happening with Gavi?
ou may have heard about the situation of Barcelona’s mercurial midfielder Gavi following the ruling of the league management board that the youngster is not eligible for registration into the club's first team.
The club’s latest appeal was rejected.
This means the player is technically a free agent as we speak and can leave Barcelona for free in the summer, as he can’t be registered this term and can only be seen as an academy player.
Manchester City would be eyeing the boy, but Barca can also sign him as a free agent. Interesting days lie ahead.
Where does Osimhen go from here?
Victor Osimhen is one of the hottest strikers in Europe as we speak, and if you close your eyes to what Erling Haaland is doing at Manchester City, Osimhen would be the next name on everyone’s lips as the man to lead their attack.
Napoli is tough to negotiate with, but there are indications that after landing the title this season, the club could listen to offers for the Nigerian.
Manchester United is an ideal destination, but for how much?
Chelsea would enter a bidding war, but would he thrive at Stamford Bridge? Lukaku 2.0?
What is wrong with Real Madrid?
How did it become a thing for Real Madrid to lose each time they face Barcelona these days?
Where did their competitive edge go?
The Los Blancos can forget about winning the league after losing the latest El Classico last weekend, but is that the end of their season?
The Champions League is the next option, but with an erratic Chelsea up next, can they come to the party against the Blues and retain the title they won last May?
Even if they beat Chelsea, they will play either Bayern Munich or Manchester City. Any takers?
