OFF THE PITCH | New Manager for Barcelona After Historic Humiliation.
Thiago Alcantara wants Liverpool
According to the press, Thiago Alcantara has already agreed on the details of his contract with “Liverpool.”
However, according to an authoritative journalist, Fabricio Romano, the clubs are still far from an agreement.
“Liverpool and Bayern must find a way out for Thiago. A personal contract is not a problem – Thiago wants to move to Liverpool. However, the Merseysiders do not want to pay 30 million euros for him, because in 5 months, they can add Thiago for free. Everything depends on the clubs, “Romano wrote on Twitter.
The 29-year-old Spanish midfielder has a contract with the Munich Grand until 2021, which means that from January, he can negotiate with any team without the consent of “Bayern.”
Ozil is not going to leave Arsenal.
Mesut Ozil does not want to move elsewhere from Arsenal. The 31-year-old midfielder realizes that no one will give him the salary he has there.
Ozil commented on the subject: “I’ll be here until the last day of my contract, and do my best. “I’m the only one who decides when to go.”
After the restart of the season, Arteta trusted Ozil very rarely, and it became clear that he wanted to get rid of him. So, last season, Ozil played in only 18 matches – scoring one goal and making two assists.
Quique Setien is fired
Quique Setien will no longer coach Barça. According to media reports, the main candidates for coaching Barcelona were Mauricio Pochettino from Argentina, Ronald Koeman from the Netherlands and Chavi Hernandez from Spain. It is already known that the Spanish specialist Ronald Koeman will replace him.
Recall that Quique became the head coach of the Catalans in the middle of the season, although his work did not deserve the sympathy of the management and the fans.
Lazio option did not come out – David Silva returned to La Liga.
Veteran Spanish footballer David Silva has returned home after a 10-year hiatus and continues his career at Real Sociedad in San Sebastian. According to the Basque club’s website, they have added Silva as a free agent.
The Spanish midfielder was actively linked with Lazio, and everything seemed to be decided. But eventually, David signed a contract with Sociedad until June 30, 2022. So, he will play again in La Liga next season, where he last played in the 2009/10 season.
