In Catalonia: Perez has to set a new goal to cure the depression of players
In Barcelona, they are more than happy after the purchase of Philippe Coutinho, which has been their main goal since the summer. The local edition, Sport, does not miss the big rival Real Madrid, claiming that President Florentino Perez was trying to convince the Brazilian to arrive at Santiago Bernabeu where he could eventually meet Neamar. As early as September, Liverpool’s current contestant rejected the ambitious plan of the Los Blancos.
“Perez’s plan was to take Coutinho after the end of the World Cup 2018 and bring him in a team with his good friend Neimar. Now, however, Real’s boss will continue flirting with Nei’s father and will have to set new goals to heal the Madrid-depressed men after losing 0: 3 in the last edition of El Classico, “said Sport.
An indication of the “cold war” between the Madrid and Catalan media is the fact that today’s Marca and AS have put on their covers a picture of Zinedine Zidane from his press conference yesterday, and the news on the transfer of Koutinho is considered less important.
