Ronald Araujo signs new deal with Barcelona
Araujo has extended his contract with Barcelona until 2026. He had been linked with Manchester United and Liverpool previously. However, it looks like he has agreed to stay. The new deal includes a EUR1 billion release clause. If he reaches this limit, he will be eligible for a free transfer. Araujo is one of the most impressive players in the team and is rated highly by Xavi.
Araujo had been linked with a move away from Barcelona in recent weeks, with reports suggesting that the Uruguayan had turned down the offer from the Premier League. A new contract will keep him at the Camp Nou until at least 2026. The Uruguayan defender had a contract with Barcelona that was due to expire in 2023. The move to the Nou Camp is a coup for Barcelona and the club.
Eden Hazard undergoes surgery to remove plate in his right leg
The Chelsea and Belgium forward is set to have surgery to remove a metal plate in his right leg, the club confirmed on Monday. Hazard has not started for Real Madrid since March 2020, when he broke his ankle and required surgery to stabilize the bone. He has never been 100% fit since, however, and delayed treatment might have made the problem worse. In addition to his leg being in poor condition, removing the metal plate would also give Hazard peace of mind.
The Belgian has been in the news recently, after suffering muscle injuries, knocks and a hairline fracture in his foot. The player also recently came down with a coronavirus. And even though he has been playing for Real, he hasn’t impressed with his performances this season. In total, Hazard has scored six goals and provided 10 assists for the club. Hazard has played 22 games for Real Madrid this season, but only started eight of them in LaLiga. He has also only made one appearance in the Champions League quarterfinals, and is set to leave Real within a month.
Real Madrid wins 3-0 at home against Alaves
Real Madrid’s 3-0 win over Alaves is a huge victory for the Spanish club. The visitors were not at their best in the first half and created numerous chances. It took over 30 minutes before Real managed to register their first shot on target. Benzema’s strike in the 54th minute was the closest they came to opening the scoring. Benzema then rounded Thibaut Courtois but his effort went wide.
Despite not planting the flag for himself as the successor to Cristiano Ronaldo, Spanish striker Joselu has been a huge success for Real Madrid this season. Meanwhile, Vinicius has rapidly established himself as a main man at the Bernabeu. Real Madrid take on Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semi-final on Wednesday, while Alaves host Levante on February 11.
Barcelona wins 3-0 at home against Alaves
Barcelona’s first LaLiga match of the season ended in a 3-0 win over Alaves. Lionel Messi scored his 6,000th LaLiga goal to open the scoring. Philippe Coutinho scored the second and Lionel Messi added a third late on. Barcelona dominated the game, but Alaves were well organised in defence and failed to create many chances. Alaves handed league debuts to Arthur and Arturo Vidal.
Barcelona dominated the first half and produced the better chance of the game, but it took until the 64th minute to break down the Alaves defence. Messi scored his first goal from a free-kick before Luis Suarez’s header was deflected into the net. He went on to score two more goals in the second half, and finished the rout with a volley. Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez also scored twice. In the last half, he stepped up and completed the rout with a penalty kick.
