Reports from Relevo suggest the club is concerned about player fatigue. They believe the expanded tournament, mirroring the World Cup format, will “kill the footballers” pushing them past their physical and mental limits.

Facing a potential 72-game season if they compete in all tournaments, Real Madrid could see their campaign stretch from August 14th, 2024 to July 13th, 2025 – a grueling 11 months with only a Christmas break.

While Real Madrid hasn’t officially voiced their concerns, their influence as a powerhouse club is undeniable. A united front with other major teams could sway decision-makers. However, such an alliance would require mending bridges with organizations alienated by the Super League project.


After a quick vacation, Barcelona’s new manager is back in action. This week, Flick will convene with his coaching staff and Sporting Director Deco at the Ciutat Esportiva to tackle player transfers for the upcoming season.

One of the biggest questions is the future of captain Sergi Roberto. Despite a new deal, Flick may decide to let him go. Similarly, President Laporta is open to bringing back Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo if loan agreements can be reached with Atletico Madrid and Manchester City.

Players like Frenkie de Jong and Ronald Araujo, previously rumored to be sold under Xavi Hernandez, will have a chance to impress the new manager during pre-season.

While Ansu Fati might be looked at, reports suggest the club is leaning towards another loan spell for the young player. Eric Garcia and Julian Araujo, returning from loans at Girona and Las Palmas respectively, have a better chance of making the first team. However, Garcia continues to attract interest from Girona.
