The Sanhedrin from 'El Larguero'
The best experts analyze in the Sanhedrin of 'El Larguero' with Manu Carreño the latest movements of this fast-paced market close:
Miguel Martín Talavera
: "The transfer of Griezmann is a great operation for Atlético de Madrid, not for Barça. If there is a winner, by far, it is Atlético. Saúl has come to say goodbye to his teammates saying that he was going to Chelsea What happens is that a transfer commission has appeared at the last minute and things have gotten tangled up. "
: "Here is something that escapes us. If Saúl does not come out and you run out of Griezmann, you have to explain it publicly. One of the most media cases in recent years, which was a worldwide mockery, is the fax David De Gea who did not arrive at Real Madrid on time. The goalkeeper stayed at United, since at 00:00 he had not entered the document. Well, from then until today I do not remember such a grotesque situation between teams in Spain " .
: "You can't start an operation like Griezmann's on the last day at 2 in the afternoon. If it doesn't close, it's because of an embarrassing planning by Barça. I think the image Barcelona is giving tonight is tremendous." .
Mbappé, the signing that never came
In the struggle of the greats of Spanish football with PSG, Real Madrid chased the arrival of Kylian Mbappé, who last Sunday scored two goals against Reims in Messi's debut.
