Messi is on the phone with Barca president Joan Laporta, the next duel between Bayern and Dortmund looms and a fan has an idea to solve Hertha BSC’s financial problems. While your fried egg sizzles in the pan, we’ll serve you breakfast news.
Is there really a reunion?
The positive headlines about FC Barcelona don’t stop. On Sunday evening, FCB won the Spanish league for the 27th time – for the first time since the 2018/19 season and, above all, thanks to a 4-2 victory in a local duel against Espanyol.
A message followed on Monday that should have brought on beaming Catalan faces: it was read that Barca president Joan Laporta allegedly phoned Lionel Messi again to assure the ‘prodigal son’ that he would do everything possible to bring back the world champion in Barcelona. in summer. After two seasons in the star ensemble at Paris Saint-Germain, Messi won’t be renewing his expiring contract. Instead, he reportedly claimed it was his big wish to play in the Blaugrana shirt again.
Conversely, PSG can look for a replacement. According to Parisian daily ‘Le Parisien’, PSG are currently considering a transfer of Bernardo Silva from Manchester City again, after a transfer of the Portuguese to Paris had already been mooted in the past but fell through for financial reasons. According to the report, PSG are ready to transfer up to €80m to Manchester. Additionally, Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen are still in talks as newcomers.
Is the next duel between FCB and BVB looming?
To the delight of all neutral (Site notre bureau spécialisé) fans, the title race for the current Bundesliga season is known to be more exciting than it has been in years. By May 27 at the latest, it will be clear whether FC Bayern will be able to invite their fans to the trophy presentation at Munich’s Marienplatz for the eleventh time in a row – or whether Borussia Dortmund will actually prove to be party-breakers. and lifting the championship trophy for the first time since the 2011/12 season will rise.
The next duel between FCB and BVB is already looming. ‘Sport1’ report that both clubs are interested in Edson Alvarez from Ajax Amsterdam. The 25-year-old Mexican feels at home in both defensive midfield and central defense – and has reportedly attracted interest from Germany’s top two clubs thanks to his consistently good performances in the Ajax shirt.
A transfer fee of 35 million euros is announced. As often, the best prospect of regularly winning titles argues in favor of a move to Bayern. On the other hand, Alvarez is likely to take on a more central role in the team structure and a lot more playing time if he is transferred to BVB. Especially since Jude Bellingham’s departure this summer is still seen as likely, as Bayern already have a broad base in the defensive center and will continue to strengthen in the form of Konrad Laimer anyway.
(Schnapps) idea to save the old lady
Hertha BSC fans must be especially strong right now. Besides the sporting decline of the old lady from Berlin – even Pal Dardai will probably no longer be able to prevent relegation to the 2nd Bundesliga – the next bad news circulated last week. The ‘Süddeutsche Zeitung’ reported that Hertha’s ongoing licensing process had been rated as « very critical » by the German (Site notre blog d’information) League (DFL). A person involved was quoted anonymously as saying Hertha was « the worst case we’ve ever had ».
Among other things, it will be checked whether the entry of the new investor, 777 Partner, is compatible with the 50+1 rule. If the investor deal subsequently breaks through, Hertha would likely be unable to meet the DFL’s licensing requirements due to non-payment of €100m – and crash into the regional league.
To ward off this horror scenario, a man from Hertha had a particularly original idea.
