In this article, we’ll look at some of the major players in the Spanish league: Real Madrid’s Lionel Messi, Barcelona’s Cristiano Ronaldo, and Atletico Madrid’s Kieran Trippier. We’ll also take a look at some of the latest news surrounding the transfer of Neymar from Barcelona. It’s been an exciting week for all the Spanish clubs, and it’s no wonder Neymar is such a big name in the league.
Atletico Madrid’s Kieran Trippier
The England international is reportedly keen on a move to Newcastle United. He spent two and a half years at Atletico Madrid before being recalled to the team by Diego Simeone on Saturday. But the former Everton midfielder has been out of form at club level since the start of the 2021/22 season. While he is proving to be a valuable asset for the Spanish side, Trippier has struggled to play extended minutes, particularly with Marcos Llorente at the back. And now, a grade three shoulder sprain may keep Trippier out of action for the rest of 2021. Sime Vrsaljko will compete for minutes if Trippier is absent.
After a turbulent season, the Englishman was able to help Atletico Madrid win the LaLiga title. The club had to come from behind to defeat Real Madrid in the final game to secure the title. But in an emotional moment, the players and supporters roared in unison. But they could not be happier with their new teammate. While many congratulate Trippier for his title-winning exploits, there was also an unremarkable gesture by Simeone, who said that he was disappointed about the defeat and that it was difficult to deal with.
Real Madrid’s Lionel Messi
If we have to judge players by their performances, then it’s hard to argue with the record of Real Madrid’s Lionel Messi. His first appearance for Barcelona was in October 2004. The team won the game 1-0 and the young Argentine made his debut. After a few unsuccessful moves, he finally found the right club. Mauricio Pochettino has backed the Argentine to deliver in the Champions League this season.
Real Madrid have received criticism after allowing Barcelona to keep Lionel Messi. The Argentine star has now left the Nou Camp, ending a 21-year stint for the club. With six La Liga titles, six Champions League trophies and the Ballon d’Or, the Argentine has become one of the best players of all time. His fierce rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo has held the attention of world audiences.
Barcelona’s Ronald Araujo
The Brazilian midfielder has extended his contract at the Camp Nou until 2026 after being linked with a move to Manchester United and Liverpool. Barcelona have added a EUR1bn ($1.16bn) release clause to his contract, which runs until 30 June 2026. Araujo has been an important figure in the Spanish first division this season, forming a vital partnership with Eric Garcia and Gerard Pique.
Araujo has been one of the best defenders for Barcelona this season. The 24-year-old has six clean sheets and four goals in 18 La Liga appearances. Araujo is also capable of playing in a central defense or as a right back. He’s signed with the club until 2025/2026, so expect him to be fit for the weekend’s match against Mallorca.
Atletico Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo
Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have been linked with a move for the Portuguese star. In fact, Ronaldo had already been linked with Atletico Madrid. Both clubs had failed to sign him, but Juve’s Max Allegri confirmed that he was keen on leaving Turin. In fact, Ronaldo had been in talks with Atletico Madrid over a move to the Wanda Metropolitano, but Atletico had reportedly rejected the move because of his Real Madrid affiliation. Manchester United and Man City were also interested in signing him.
The two biggest clubs in the league are Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Real won every title between 2004 and 19 in the league, and the club has a strong defense led by Jan Oblak. Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo is a big part of its success, and it is no surprise that he will be so important to the club’s success. The club needs him more than ever to win La Liga once more.
The transfer rumours that have been circulating in Spanish football this week have a shocking twist. According to the Catalonia sports daily Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid legend Cristiano Ronaldo is in the market to move back to LaLiga. The Portuguese forward has been linked with a move to Barcelona. According to the report, the Catalan giants are in talks with the Manchester United star, who is desperate to make his LaLiga debut.
Asked if he was unhappy with the attitude and tactics of Manchester United’s interim manager, the forward responded by giving an ultimatum to his agent Jorge Mendes. The forward has been linked with Barcelona after expressing discontent with the club’s tactics and form. However, his request has not been fulfilled. The Spanish giants have been actively seeking a striker to replace the departing Sergio Aguero.
Real Madrid’s Xavi
Real Madrid’s Xavi has been in the spotlight in recent football news after his comments during the club’s Europa League game. The forward said the club was under a ‘duty’ to win games and play well. This led to a response by Barcelona coach Carlo Ancelotti in a press conference. Xavi is not the most popular player in Spain, but that doesn’t mean he is any less important.
Xavi has a strong track record, and he has played a vital role for his team since taking over at the club in November. The player’s impressive performance has helped Barcelona win back the La Liga title, and the Champions League, as well. However, the player is far from finished playing. Real Madrid’s next challenge is the Spanish Super Cup, which is set to start in the second leg of the semifinals on May 18.
