    €82M offer made for Hazard. Chelsea asking for €115M but it sounds as though negotiations may have officially begun.

    Next year's third. Not sure if I love or hate the collar but the striping on the sleeves not going all the way around is killing me

    Looks like the Arsenal third this year. Or is it our away? Either way...

    Also FF is reporting a €280M bid for Mbappe has been/will be made. I can't imagine PSG selling him for any reason but it confirms that he's at the top of Zidane & Flo'a wishlist

    The mint & blue isn't bad, especially for a 3rd that'll only be used sparingly.

    Surprised the home hasn't leaked yet. It's rumored to be white & gold like the '11/12 version that was one of the best.

    <1% chance it happens this summer, even at €350+ which is rumored to be the limit Perez is willing to go.

    Team is coming back to the US this summer. Playing Bayern in Houston, Arsenal in DC and Atletico in NYC. No Euros or World Cup this summer so should have most if not the entire 1st team with them.

    Pique is the Bernabeu’s public enemy number one. Yet here he is shutting down Catalan dissenters.

    Then again, lest we forget, the Catalans brought Spain their long awaited trophy triumphs.

    What a guy.

    Weird match today but good to see Zidane brought back the belief that they're never out of it. Super inconsistent but better effort and a lot of the young kids got action with so many guys missing.

    So looks like Isco is out of purgatory. Wish that Valverde would let Malcom out of it. Or at least give him the minutes to let him play himself into it in the first place.

    Ha. Just saw that ZZ gave his boy a start between the sticks. Please let nepotism cloud his judgment. Don’t want to see him whisper life back into the youth movement that was starting to take flight before he bailed over the Ronaldo fiasco.

    I guess Bayern has decided to not buy James so he will return to Madrid. Zizou can either keep him or sell him.

    Thought Vallejo looked really good yesterday. He's flashed elite potential at times but always had injury issues and setbacks. Hopefully he can stay healthy and put it all together. Seems like a prime candidate to be loaned out for playing time

    This summer is going to be wild....can’t wait to see who they bring in.

    Wholesale changes are needed as this year it looked like a very tired side outside of a few individuals.

    Seeing Vinicius continue to develop....he’s going to be scary.

    Definitely feels like they're entering a new era a la the '09/10 revolution. Almost certainly going to be a lot of turnover the next 2 windows.

    I'm most interested to see if they treat it as an arms race and just amass as much talent as possible or Zidane has a more balanced plan to build a squad.

    According to this Madrid going after Lyon’s Ferland Mendy, who would cost 50m. Reguillon would be sent on a loan if so.

    Fitting in to an absolute abortion of a season. 12 league losses is hysterically bad.

    At least the crowd was appreciative of Keylor in what's prob his last match.
