So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, goodnight
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight…
Some updates, things are moving fast in this transfer window!
As I mentioned you early, Gonzalo Higuain “El Pipita” was heading to Naples, his transfer was almost a done thing with Napoli, and early this morning was reported that he did not travel with the team to play their second pre-season game against Lyon in France, which means that more than almost a done deal, is moving to a sealed deal :(…
I have followed him since he got to the team six years ago and I have seem his improvement, growing to the next level, but also being patience, waiting for his chance, he was a favorite among Real’s fans most of the time, but what we can not discuss is that he was very effective, always scoring goals for Real Madrid, he showed commitment and dedication with the Club, but we all know that he had some areas to improve but well when he was not in the starting lineup, his minutes got shorter and every summer there was the same story if the club will put him up for sale, he felt it was time to look for new air, and a new beginning!
I wish him all the best in his new journey, Maraca.com the Spanish sport newspaper is reporting that Pipita is already in Italy to go thru the medical recognition with his new team and he will sign for four seasons and the Italian Club will pay around 37 millions Euros for him, a very good deal for Real Madrid who bought him for 12 millions… He gets a six million per year which is an improvement from his previous salary too.
This is the Sport world, it will feel weird not seeing him wearing Real Madrid jersey but, well he’ll be competing for the Scudetto in Italy and he will also has the chance to play the champions league group stage with Napoli.
There are some things to get done, and he has to sign, but all seems that it’s just a matter of hours…
I’ll keep you post!
On another note;
Real Madrid is playing today their second friendly game vs O. Lyon in France, as part of their pre-season, this could be a better chance to see how the team is adapting to the new coaching, since O.Lyon is a more competitive team that Bournemouth!
Also Barcelona is playing at this moment their first friendly pre-season game, a very special one, because it’s against Bayern Munich, Pep Guardiola’s new team, he is Barcelona’s former Manager, the one that lead them to one if not the most successful period of time for the Club, this game should be a very entertaining and interesting to watch due to the latest drama between Pep and his former Team…
A lot of Football today… oook a lot of soccer today 🙂
Todays sountrack…. So Long, Farewell Pipita!! Good luck!
