Will the stadium tour be open on Friday?
As the question goes I am passing through Madrid and I have always wanted to see the Santiago Bernabeu. I will be on Madrid with a few hours to kill and would love to take on the stadium tour but the website shows that it may be closed for April and May.
Does anyone know?
Here we go, when?
When Fraudizio Tapano makes sure its done
🚨🥇| There was a third club interested in Kylian Mbappé alongside Real Madrid and PSG: Liverpool.
These daring fools thought they had a chance 😂
key word "was"
🚨| OFFICIAL: Real Madrid will play vs Real Betis on FRIDAY. Extra rest before #UCL final. #rmalive
The last home game for Marcelo, Isco and Bale.
I think Adidas is going the retro way with this kit. The font is giving me 2002 vibes and the form of the shirt also seems a little wider and looser. So theres generally more fabric to it + the classy collar, just like the early 2000's kits.
I thought the front part gave 2007 vibes ?
People on here never praise and give credit to Jose Angel Sanchez.
Perez mentioned him multiple times, he hates to be in public, he works so hard for our club behind the scenes from YEARS, and I mean LONG time.
Hes our 2nd most important man after Perez.
Pretty sure Zidane has beef with JAS, which might sour some people's opinions of him.
JAS proved to be 100% right tho
About selling club legends which Zidane wanted to keep, not signing players he requested such as Pogba, and the fact that he wasn't fulfilling the squad's attacking potential with his lethargic "style" of football and stubborn choices
I thought Zidane was the one who wanted new players
Zidane wanted to keep Ramos and Varane. One of the main reasons why he left was the failed Ramos renewal
Zidane wanted to sell Bale in the first place and left because Perez sold CR7. Bale ended up flopping as the "main man", so I don't know how Zidane was wrong about that. His weak attack had more to do with Vini's finishing being horrible than his tactics. You're also forgetting the awful 60+ injuries he had to deal with last season and how we were still only one game away from catching up to Atleti and made it all the way to the semifinals.
I'm talking about Zidane's second stint and his subsequent departure with that ridiculous letter, not the first one.
>His weak attack had more to do with Vini's finishing being horrible than his tactics
>You're also forgetting the awful 60+ injuries he had to deal with
He had no 60+ injuries when he came back in 18/19 and its subsequent season. Not to mention at least some of the recurring injuries of the 20/21 season are his responsabilty since he kept rushing players back.
>we were still only one game away from catching up to Atleti and made it all the way to the semifinals.
My point is broader than mere results. I'm talking about enduring two years of his unwatchable mess. Not to mention that they have been surpassed anyway.
Zidane is partly responsible for these injuries though, he let Pintus go and brought that french national team fitness coach, its because of that fitness coach I forgot his name that we struggled so much with injuries
Ramos, Varane, and Hazard have proven to be extremely injury prone with or without Pintus. Those were our main victims last season, and, taking COVID into consideration, it's fair to say that Zidane's responsibility for the injuries is practically negligible.
r/PSG are still in denial about Mbappe leaving lol
Not really though.
Am I the only one that would rather have Alaba as a CB than a LB next season? Yes, he will surely be better than Mendy offensively, but the frenchman has been rock solid on his defensive duties for the last seasons now. Just look out our record whenever Mendy plays and look some of our games without him. The latest El Clasico would have been completely different with him against Dembele, if he was available.
Alaba hasn't played LB since the 18/19 season, so I don't see how it's wise to suddenly bench a very good Mendy next season. If Mendy isn't available sure, I'd love Alaba to play there instead of Nacho. Also Alaba is 30, most fullbacks tend to become worse and worse after that age because that position requires a lot of stamina, pace and running up and down the field in general. We saw it with our own Marcelo, we've seen it with Alex Sandro, Juanfran and many others. So, even if Alaba becomes a starter LB it's not a long term solution at all, we're gonna need another LB very soon.
I agree that alaba as a cb would be better than as a lb since he hasn't played that position in a while. Hopefully the competition between him, militao, rüdiger and nacho means that we end up with four really good centre backs. What I like about the rüdiger transfer is that it gives us the freedom to experiment with alaba on the left more and means we don't have to worry what happens if alaba or mendy are unavailable, since we'll have great back-ups on both positions.
Don't forget Vallejo, he's been very solid now that he's given a chance.
vallejo has been really good these past few games, I just don't think it makes sense for the club or him to stay next season as he would be at best fourth centerback, probably fifth. Ideally he gets a move to a EL or CL level team and gets consistent first team experience (I do think he is that good) and we have a buy back option. In that case if it happens that 3 out of our 4 cb's can't play or alaba is needed on the left I believe the castilla players could handle it (depending on the game) and keeping vallejo on the pay-roll (no offense to him) is not worth it for the off chance we need a fifth cb for a big CL game for example. He is good but with rüdiger I don't currently see a place in the team worthy of his abilities.
🚨| PSG will receive NOTHING from the Mbappe to Real Madrid deal. There is no doubt that they will seek revenge. @ marca
Though exaggerated, go ahead psg. I dare you to pay the release clauses.
Even if they do, no one will join them, paying the release clause means you can sign the player ONLY if the player wants to leave, and the club wants him to leave for that amount of money.
I will drive Asensio there myself if they bid for him
And ill pay for the fuel
Im so glad we're getting Rüdiger, Militao is so inconsistent he needs strong competition
I love the collar on our new kit
I hate the collar on our new kit
The font on the kit looks amazing, the 9th CL's season vibes.
The new kit looks clean 👌🏼🤍
🚨| PSG will receive NOTHING from the Mbappe to Real Madrid deal. There is no doubt that they will seek revenge. @marca
😹shiver me timbers, they already have a ex madrid player held hostage there thats revenge enough in my book🤝
You laugh but Perez was willing to pay 200 million for Mbappé just to keep a good relationship with them. He was probably thinking big picture and wanted to buy Hakimi in the future, but that's never happening.
Mo Salah to PSG confirmed?
Seek revenge lol. What a childish club
Revenge? This is not Hollywood bruhh. What r they going to do? Activate $1 billion release clauses?
Ooh no I don’t know what I would do if they sought revenge by taking Asensio and Mariano from us in the summer window, that’ll show us
Revenge what a classless club, this is not some mafia gang War going on here
It looks beautiful 🤍
Is that kid Enzo (Marcelo's son)?
And The final design is in early 2023, after we add the Club world cup Winner GOLD badge.
Imagine if Theo and Hakimi stayed and reached their peak here. It's pretty frustrating to NOT see the best fullbacks in Madrid.
I honestly think a fully fit Mendy is better than Theo
With this centre back partnership and midfield it is, but when/if Cama/Tchou/Valverde midfield happens Theo and Hakimi as full backs could have been fucking magical. Imagine the overlaps and overloads, Vini/Theo and Mbappe/Hakimi on each sides. All we would need is some fast and tall centre backs.
I still think he could become a much better attacking option as well, obvi some recency bias cause he scored against levante but I feel like once he plays a consecutive amount of games he can be much better attacking wise, we’ll see tho. Atm yeah Theo is much better attacking wise
Mendy is a must in this team since we ain't got the most physical CB partnership.
Theo is a beast in attack but a meh defender.
🚨🚨| BREAKING: Real Madrid and Kylian Mbappé reached an AGREEMENT last week. They sealed EVERYTHING. @jfelixdiaz @marca
I was on a football related group on facebook (similar to r/soccer) and its filled with WEIRD takes, I felt I was in. A parallel universe.
I saw a madrid fan say he wishes Mbappe doesnt join, and that he shouldnt join, what? Is there any madrid fan who doesnt want Mbap? What the hell man
Left it immediately.
Facebook is filled with the people operating at 200% of their brain power.
I agree with the guy saying Mbappe shouldn’t join because his initials are KM…. You know what KM could also stand for?
Kylian Mbappe is abusing children and therefore we shouldn’t sign him, it would be a bad look for the club to sign a criminal
Someone here recently said they dont want mbappe cause it would disrupt the team lol
Just remembered game against Betis is going to be Marcelo, Bale and Isco's last game at the Bernabéu. I'm not mentally ready for it yet.
Everyone makes mistakes, but the thing that makes me mad is how Militao shouts at others when it was clearly his mistake. At least take responsibility for fucks sake.
The worst one which thankfully nothing happened on, was 2nd leg City when he left the defence to speak to the referee on a foul. Foden shifted into space and Fernandinho took a quick freekick. Imagine if we concede that, the memes and shittalking. Militao would have been clowned nonstop but all he does after is keep talking to the referee while smiling.
Ngl " [x-journalist] and 🚨🚨 comments" turns me on.
For me its Fraudizio Romano and dimarzio and David Ornstein most.
Real Madrid Baloncesto’s best academy graduate, Luka Dončić leads his Dallas Mavericks to NBA’s Western Conference Finals
What number will Mbappe carry?
Probably 11 initially
I hope Hazard gives him 7
Not his choice
Would love to see him carry 11. 7 should go to our boy Vini
Its the opposite lol
Register him as a castilla player and give him the 69
#7 no doubt
didn't see the game yesterday, how was hazard? In the highlights it looks like he was hunted by cadiz players aggressively.
Considering he was playing after months, he was pretty good.
He was actually aggressive towards Cadiz players by committing some fouls. He had some flashes of brilliance too though.
Bruh y'all didn't have to make a WHOLE thread about chelsea and westham giving us the edge on the long run by tiring out Liverpool....
It is an advantage but let's not exaggerate...
These matches ain't the main advantages, but the 3 weeks we technically had to prepare for the final is.
Ok i will be the pessimist here.
Mbappe might be announcing his decision in the end of the season bcz he would be getting the highest signing bonus from PSG after he is a free agent. He hasnt renewed yet but can, in the near future.
Why can’t he sign that incredibly high signing bonus contract now before his current contract ends?
I thought the signing bonus when you are a free agentbis relatively higher than when you renew.
Ok this is actually embarrassing. That’s because another club will pay you more as a free agent (because no transfer fee) than your current club for renewal. There is nothing that stops PSG from giving him the same signing bonus when he’s renewing if they wanted to. Him announcing his decision before joining the NT pretty much confirms coming to Madrid because his renewal would have been announced in their last home game.
>Ok i will be the pessimist here
Mbappe with a tom holland level of spoilers
Nah that guy is on a whole different level.
Mbappe has tortured us.
I fail to understand what has happened to Militao. He's literally getting bodied by nobodies and not long ago he was a beast physically. He also seems slower. Very worrying.
I hope Carlo goes with Nacho. He has been terrific.
Rudiger news got into him?
If anything it should motivate him.
Different people react differently to things. But my bet would still be some kind of personal problem. Just guesses tho.
Exactly, you forgot to mention he has slow reactions, fast paced games hes just not sharp enough, worrying for a defender because you need to have awareness and react quicker
not as an excuse, but maybe as a reason he had been injured for a while and it went kind of untreated with him taking pain meds. Very possible that would have such an effect. Again not an excuse however.
Whats the status on alaba
When is the earliest we can see Rudiger play in white?
🎙| Mbappe: "Breaking Cavani's record? I'm happy to stay in the top 3."
So with rudiger coming, someone has to lose their cb place, at the moment its looking Like millitao, will be a interesting battle to look on from
I want us to go full Deschamps for one game next season and play a backline of Nacho - Alaba - Rudiger - Militao
I was told Militao would get renewed with 8m net salary.
I think Militao just lost his new contract.
Do you guys not follow the team?
He has agreed to a renewal till 2027. Probably gets announced in the off season or early next season.
Rudiger cannot get here soon enough. Asensio has been crap but he's probably leaving at the end of this season so I'm done worrying about him. Militao on the other hand needs to get his shit together ASAP or else his future at the club is in jeopardy. Right now, he worries me the most about the final. Imagine that Liverpool front 3 isolating him in his current form. It'll get embarrassing
Has es grimes always been so vengeful or did football twitter make her that way? I always see her trying to prove herself right or complaining about other accounts "stealing" news.
It's gotten worse lmao. Still find her to be the most accurate one out there. Don't care for all the drama though.
Def football Twitter - you can see the dive into madness
Damn Luka whooping the Suns right now 🤣🤣
Luka scorching the Suns. Things you love to see.
I think we should hav nacho and Alaba (if he performs well against Betis) for the final.
Nacho and Alaba does not work well as a duo due to their lack of chemistry and there is no tall cb in that backline as well
It’s not like Militao wins many aerials anyway
He does, however in the offensive aspect he can't score them despite countless chances, he has only scored 2 headers and it should have been atleast 7 or 8 based on the number of chances he's had
I agree. If Militão could get more accurate with his headers, he'd have a lot more goals to his name. That's one aspect of his game I'd like to see improve over time.
From a defensive aspect, he's more than capable of winning headers. One example was the league match against La Real on the road, which, for me, was the best performance by Militão in a Madrid shirt.
My fucking god. People in this sub cannot grasp the simple concept of Mbappe not disclosing anything until the season starts. It's crystal clear he's coming to Madrid, the discrepancies with image rights and all those signing bonus bullshit are rumors spread by shit tier journalists whoring for clicks. And my oh my the people are sucking on it like it's Rihanna's titties.
Fucking rigmarole of shit-housery for no reason whatsoever. He can never say he made his final decision because people would obviously ask him what it is. Go fuck a cactus till then.
Mmm Rihanna's pregnant titties..
Enough reddit for one day, and it’s 8:20 AM.
Wtf😂 that's weird dude
Wtf is even this season? Vallejo looks better than Militao now 😂.
Famous irl? Like actual players using reddit? Kroos definitely, at least 2 alts 😂
At this point, if anyone thinks Mbappe is renewing with PSG, they are simply thick headed. He couldn't have dropped a more obvious hint.
What was the hint?
He said Hala Madrid y Nada Mas at the ceremony.
Can confirm that's what he said.
Source: I speak Russian
I won't trust anyone or anything until i see here we go
Fabrizio will tweet 5 mins before official announcement.
Hmmmm that's a bit too exaggerated but yeah ,we'll know first from him
The whole psg squad is in Qatar
Ah, thank you bro didn’t know that
Ooooooo he's renewing ,jk.
Any NYC fans have any recommendations on where to watch the UCL final?
Ill be there too
Dimarzio has been very realiable for us lately( Said Modric,Vini and Eder is renewing and was the first to say Rudiger is signing for us). He just said we have a verbal agreement w Mbappe. And Mbappe said he made his decision and that it was only some details left.
It’s soon time boys.🐢🐢
🚨| Real Madrid are worried about Eder Militao's recent performances and his bad form. However, it's unlikely that he will not start against Liverpool.
Well yeah… we have thin patience here, if he doesnt sort his shit out soon I dont see him being a massive player here in the future SADLY
La Saeta Rubia begs to differ. Here's what he said regarding that Marca report: [https://twitter.com/LSR\_RM/status/1525969541867655170?cxt=HHwWhMCykdTNqq0qAAAA](https://twitter.com/LSR_RM/status/1525969541867655170?cxt=HHwWhMCykdTNqq0qAAAA)
Lol he’ll for sure be a massive part of the defence. They’re even trying to renew him. He has been poor ever since those pain killers and injury reports came out.
He just needs a slap in the face and stronger pain killers for the final
Pain killers also tend to dull reaction time. Maybe not too strong lol.
So that might explain his shitty reaction time as of recently?
Have you heard of the "Hazard's paradox''?
When player named Eden Hazard enters the pitch everyone from the opposite team gains a yellow card.
How is it a paradox?
Just seen Theo goal, sheeesh
It's pretty hard for youngsters to develop during the 3-peat era. We had the world class players in each position already.
We let go off some gems, llorente, hakimi, and theo, who would be the best attacking fullback duo in football if we had them, it was very hard to develop players during that time though, hindsight is 20/20, the club should’ve done more to get hakimi back though.
Is Zidane sick? He looks a bit thin in his latest Instagram post and he has a bandage on his left hand, looks like he got an injection of some sort
probably just done some blood test he looks normal in his pics before.
Hopefully it's just that, Zidane must be protected at all costs.
Yeah we need him to win another 3 peat
[PLAY IT LOUDER! ](https://streamable.com/pt0ed4)
🎙| Nice's coach Christopher Galtier on Mbappé's future: "We need Kylian Mbappé in Ligue 1! He can allow PSG to win the most beautiful trophy and Paris will allow him to win it. I hope he stays with us." @AndiOnrubia
Damn bro anyways
>He can allow PSG to win the most beautiful trophy and Paris will allow him to win it.
I'm assuming that "most beautiful trophy" Galtier is referring to is the Champions League. If so, all he has to do is make a trip to Marseille and schedule a tour to see Marseille's European Cup in their trophy room. His comment reeks of desperation because of the inevitable of what's to come.
Well there is some big controversy regarding that win.
They should have been stripped considering the shit they pulled in the league the same season.
Anywhere i can read about that? Have been watching football a long time but first time hearing this.
They got caught bribing in the league the same season they won the UCL.
Joke league, psg own's most of their top teams lmao
Judging by Mbappé's words, this saga is gonna come to an end very soon. We'll hear these three beautiful words that we've been waiting to hear: "Comunicado Oficial: Mbappé."
🚨🚨| Kylian Mbappé: "I'm in a rush too, but it's not just about me. It's over, only a few details are left, but it's DONE."
Bring your bro with you
Is Ethan good?
Idk, he’s a midfielder though. He’s still very young so it won’t hurt us
(🌕) Real Madrid have a verbal agreement with Kylian Mbappé. The club will soon turn that into the final signature. Kylian is expected to get a €100M gross as signing bonus and a five-year contract at €50M gross per season, €25M net. @DiMarzio #Transfers 🇫🇷🚨
It's done boisss 🥳
Ayy that type of money is mad
Yeah, apparently Bale is 34m gross, Benzema 24m
No, his salary will be almost double theirs. Bale is on 15 million net, Hazard on 12.
Mbappe will be 25m net. Still half of what PSG offered
Bale is on 15M net? I don’t believe that. Bale definitely makes more than Mbappé and Hazard probably also makes a bit more. The media wouldn’t be complaining about their salaries if they were 12M and 15M net
They are. We didnt know too much about Bales salary until he went on loan to spurs. Then all sources both from spain and uk plus fabrizio said that madrid and spurs are paying half each. 7.5 mill each.
25 million net is extremely high and basically Ronaldo level. Not many players get those contracts
Rudiger is on 9M net so surely Hazard and Bale’s are much higher. I swear I’ve seen that Bale’s on around 30M
I think that's 30 with certain bonuses which he doesn't get if he doesn't play.
30 gross 15 net.
Ronaldo was 30+ gross
Crazy week ahead. Exciting times
Having to worry about a UCL final, and probably getting the opportunity to welcome Mbappe in the same week, a luxury not many clubs' fans can afford tbh.
Mbappe,i fkn swear if u end up renewing after all the bs ....to haunt you down FOREVER
Yeah, he would be labeled a diva lmao. I’m just glad this whole saga is almost done.
Even worse than a diva , using Madrid name just to get a raise in the new contract would be low asf
But i'm 98% sure he's coming
🚨🎙| Kylian Mbappe: “28th of May? Before that.”
🚨🚨 Mbappé on his decision: “It's over. There are a few details left, but it's over!”
Yeah I can’t see him renewing
I wonder what number will he wear? Hazard wants Modrics number 10 which he won’t get until the 2023-24 season or Maybe hazard might take some other number
My guess is Hazard will switch
Hazard will get xhaka's number in arsenal
The matter is settled, Mbappe will announce his decision before May 28.
Atleast we know now FFS it was a long time coming pheww... Such a relief lol.
He’ll announce he’s leaving PSG he won’t announce he’s joining us until the club does it in June.
Nah, it’s pretty obvious that it’s here or Paris. He’s even said it himself so I think he’ll announce that he’s coming to Madrid
He won’t say he’s joining us until the club does in June even though we all know it’s true.
But we'll already now with Fabrizio and the fellas
The same thing. No chance in hell he goes to any other club.
🚨 Breaking: Kylian Mbappé confirms that he will announce his final decision before the concentration with France to play the Nations League in June. At the end of May we will know where he will play next season. @AndiOnrubia
🚨🚨| The French NT is gathering on May 28th, so Mbappé will announce his decision BEFORE that.
Edit: It's mostly probably gonna be on May 21st no? It has to be....
Mario said this is the week ,could be before the game just to get some kind of a farewell....we'll see
I feel like what’s been going here the whole time is that Mbappe’s made his decision a while ago but he had just always been set on announcing it at the end of the season. Which imo can only mean that’s he’s coming to Madrid.
🚨🚨🎖| Kylian Mbappe
will announce his decision before the next gathering of the French NT. @Tanziloic
