Robertson, from super cashier to win the Champions League

first_imgThe Scot grew up in Glasgow and plays in Liverpool, both working cities, and this way of thinking overturns his game on the grass. Do not spare a career, not a drop of work. “Forget the money and everything else. I play football every day. It’s my dream job. If they paid me the same salary that a supermarket employee wouldn’t bother me,” he says. Just being able to touch the ball every day makes Robertson happy with his origins and current privileges.

Ibrahimovic in between signing Milik for Atlético

first_imgLemar must leave firstRecovering the investment that Atlético made for Lemar two years ago seems distant: the Frenchman, Griezmann’s request to stay at the rojiblanco club, cost 70 million, until the arrival of João Félix, the highest investment in history, whereas now it does not exceeds 30 according to the specialized page Transfermakt. But it has a market. Inter wants him, the Premier is looking for him, his departure would fill the red and white piggy bank to be able to undertake that transfer he longs for. The one with Milik’s goals. Ibra has already opened the door at her price … Ibrahimovic’s departure from Milan although a priori sounds like a stumbling block for the rojiblancos interests, the rossoneros They would have Arkadiusz Milik (26 years old) in their sights as a substitute, in reality it may not. Because the departure of Ibra may be a door for Atlético, who also has Milik as his target highlighted in red and bold for next season, as he points out. The uncheck. Simeone wants a goal and the Pole has it. 12 in 22 games this season with Napoli. Following the interest of Milan, De Laurentiis, president of Naples, has put a price on him. 40 million. Affordable for rojiblancos, drowned by the salary limit and forced to sell (Lemar smells like a safe way out) in order to buy. Werner and Milik are currently the forwards on the red and white agenda for next season (In addition to, perhaps, Cavani, who surprisingly from Brazil they put back in the red and white orbit, despite the fact that relations ended broken in the past winter market) in which Atlético yes or yes will incorporate a striker. With Costa’s continuity on the wire (things have not come to him on his return, with numbers very far from those he had in the 2013-14 season), Cholo needs a ‘9’ benchmark and guarantees but at an affordable price. Everton, Tottenham and Sevilla are also teams that crave the Pole.last_img read more
