Conde reveals the role of Xavi
Barcelona’s new defender Jules Conde revealed the role played by Barca coach Xavi Hernandez in his move to the “Camp Nou”.

Jovic criticizes Ancelotti
Luka Jovic, the current Fiorentina and former Real Madrid striker, sent an indirect message of criticism to Carlo Ancelotti, his former coach in the royal team, noting that he was the reason why he did not shine in the white shirt.

Corriere dello Sport
De Ligt’s confession
Newly-signed Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt has revealed for the first time why he chose to play at Juventus three years ago.
De Ligt said: “In 2019 I chose to go to Juventus because of coach Maurizio Sarri, I wanted to play attacking football, and I expected to see a style similar to Ajax, but unfortunately Sarri left after only one year.”
He added: “There were differences in pressure and risk between Ajax and Juventus, and I see Italian football moving at a slower pace.”
Werner wanted in Madrid
Real Madrid is looking for a striker for the team next season, to replace Karim Benzema, as the team’s list is devoid of any attackers in light of the approaching departure of Borja Mayoral, Mariano and Marco Asensio.
Real Madrid has put the name of German Chelsea striker Timo Werner on top of his priorities, as it suits the nature of the royal team’s play, and he was on the wanted list when he played for Leipzig before moving to the Blues in 2020.
And with Thomas Tuchel getting Raheem Sterling during the summer transfers, from Manchester City, he may give the green light for Werner’s departure to Real Madrid.
Bayern deals evaluation
Wagner and Michael Ballack, former Bayern Munich players, questioned the capabilities of Matthias de Ligt, the newly joined Bavarian team defender from Juventus.
Ballack said: “De Ligt is not the player who can stand it,” while Wagner praised Nazraoui, noting that he is a great player, and will work on what Pavard, who lacked the attacking side, did not achieve.
The duo, Sadio Mane, chose the most impressive deal, to be a strong addition to the team.
A new outcast in Saint-Germain
New Paris Saint-Germain coach Christopher Galtier has excluded German defender Thelo Keirer from his pre-season calculations, joining 5 other players the Paris club wants to get rid of before the current summer transfer window closes.
The other five players are: Jorginho Wijnaldum, Julian Draxler, Ander Herrera, Levin Kurzawa and Rafinha.
Since the return of the Paris Saint-Germain delegation from the Japan tour, Keirer has not trained with the Parisian team, as he is expected to leave the team within the next few days.
The German defender, who joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2018 and has one year left on his contract, could replace Jules Conde at Sevilla.
Monaco wants Rabiot
Monaco officials have expressed their desire to obtain the services of Adrien Rabiot, the Juventus midfielder, during the current summer transfers, knowing that the player is not sure of his chances to participate as a starter in the new season.
This comes after news circulated during the past hours about Monaco’s interest in the inclusion of Arthur Milo, also a Juventus star, although the process of including one of the two stars remains complicated for the French club.
Monaco wants to compensate for Aurelien Chuamini’s departure to Real Madrid at the beginning of this summer.
