Mais um tentado pela China



Salomón Rondón será o novo jogador do Dalian Yifang, em troca de 18 milhões de euros. O venezuelano, de 29 anos, chegará no meio da temporada a uma equipe que recentemente contratou Rafa Benítez como treinador, sendo esta a chave para a contratação do atacante.

A notícia, como esperado, causou um tumulto nas redes sociais. Um grande número de pessoas discordou com a sua decisão. E por esse motivo, devemos analisar essa contratação.

O Dalian Yifan acertou ou errou?

O Dalian Yifang está atualmente na oitava posição da Super Liga Chinesa. Lá atuam jogador como Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco (que pode partir para a Europa em breve), Marek Hamsik ou Emmanuel Boateng.

O que isso nos diz sobre Salomón? Nada. E pela mesma rezão, é impossível rotular ou avaliar a contratação agora.

Não é possível determinar como acerto/erro de Rondón sem tê-lo visto em ação, ou dar a Rafael Benítez cinco fichas para conhecer sua proposta. Claramente, é um projeto. E os projetos não são imediatos.

Vamos analisar, então, uma das perguntas mais realizadas por esses dias:

  • Porque Salomón não ficou na Europa?

A resposta é outra pergunta: Rondón tem outras ofertas na Europa? Nada oficial foi conhecido, além de ser um jogador “caro” no mercado. Ele vem da Premier League, com um salário alto, uma referência em sua seleção…

Não é qualquer time que pode ter um atacante desse tamanho no seu elenco, por mais que eles queiram.

Havia rumores sobre um possível interesse do West Ham, mas a chegada de Sébastien Haller se encarregou de silenciar tudo. E nem haviam evidências claras do interesse.

Também é prudente enfatizar que os Hammers contrataram um atacante muito diferente e mais jovem que o venezuelano. Eles se moveram melhor, mesmo.

No final do dia, os milhões do futebol chinês apareceram. Milhões que são quase impossíveis de recusar. E tudo coincidiu em um momento chave.

Afinal, se Salomón marcar 15 ou 20 gols, ele provavelmente voltará para a Europa. Sim, com 30 ou 31 anos. É assim que o mercado se move agora, com uma “distância” mais estreita entre todos os continentes.

E agora que sabemos tudo isso… Por que diabos você ainda está dizendo que é um erro?


PSG worried with “Neymar deadline” as Real Madrid is hopeful



Every day, a new offer for Neymar is announced in the European press. The latest is a “royal” combo: Real Madrid would be willing to pay 100 million euros plus three more players – Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez, and Keylor Navas – for Neymar. I swear I would close a swap-deal with the likes of Bale and James for Neymar. I don’t know what’s going on PSG’s chairman’s mind, but they have denied this absurd proposal.

PSG keep playing hard in order to keep the Brazilian striker, having already declined offers from two other European giants, Barcelona and Juventus.

In Real, the three players included in the proposal are set to leave. The Spanish club almost negotiated the Welsh Gareth Bale to China, but the player refused the transfer. James Rodriguez has returned from Bayern Munich loan and is not in the plans of coach Zinedine Zidane. And Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas wants to go out for a better chance to play, as Belgian Thibaut Courtois, somehow, has Zidane’s trust to be the absolute starter.

Meanwhile, I see a move back to Barcelona very improbable at this transfer window. It will be officially closed in 10 days, and the only way Barcelona could land Neymar is to paying his full-price, as PSG doesn’t seem to want to see Neymar back at Catalunia. At the same time, a move back to Barca is clearly Neymar’s wish, but I see his priority as to get out of PSG as soon as possible.

So maybe even despite the efforts from Lionel Messi, who has reportedly called Neymar to try to change the Brazilian’s mind on not to join Madrid will be in vain.

At the same time, keeping Neymar would not be a good idea for PSG, as they would still have to pay his wages, and it’s not good to have an unsatisfied player within the squad. Clock is running for both PSG and Neymar. Where will Neymar Junior be playing in some weeks? Let’s wait and see, but apparently, this whole situation is coming to an end.

CR7: “Any player who hasn’t proved anything is worth €100M nowadays”



It seems like the inflated Football transfer market has been upsetting the Portuguese star, Cristiano Ronaldo. In a recent interview for Portuguese TV channel “TVI”, the legend has criticized the astronomical prices clubs have been paying for players who aren’t really worth that. I have a slight impression that Man United’s new signing Harry Maguire didn’t like it that much. Pass it on.

– Nowadays, prices are surreal. I’ll put aside the case of Joao Felix, but now any player without proving anything is worth a 100 million euros. This is madness. One sees center-halves and goalkeepers being transferred by astronomical values. But on the one hand, it is also good because it is a sign that the football business is alive and apparently in good health – said the 34-year-old who avoided setting a price tag for himself.

“When I see goalkeepers being sold at 75 million euros, a player who does what I do on the pitch and who scores goals has to be worth three, four times more. Easily.”

Besides that, he also gave his words on his childhood dreams back at Madeira Island:

– My dream was to be a soccer player, everyone told me I was a football star and I started to create this illusion. But if you ask me if I thought I would ever win a Golden Ball, two or three, I tell you I never thought about it. I know that obviously, the most important thing is to have talent, and this I have, but if you notice, great athletes from others sports, scientists or Nobel laureates, are all great workers. I like to copy good examples, not only in sports. All had great talent but were above all great workers.

And also on his move from Real Madrid to Juventus:

– Financially, I don’t need football to live well. I will live well throughout my whole life. There are projects, and this one from Juventus has caught my attention. It was a challenge. I had won it in England, Spain and was going to win here in Italy. And I got another record by winning the championship. I like challenges. For me, Madrid was already in my comfort zone. After winning 17 or 18 titles, it was one more. Routines were always the same. I wanted a new challenge, I am a person who aims the perfection in my area.

Coutinho praised by Klopp and Lewandowski



Hired last week by Bayern Munich from Barcelona in a 1-year loan deal, Philippe Coutinho was praised by his new teammate Robert Lewandowski, and also by his former manager from Liverpool times, Jurgen Klopp. The Brazilian, who can make his debut for his new team this Saturday against Schalke 04 for Bundesliga’s Matchday 2 is being celebrated everywhere.

Everyone knows what Coutinho can do. He had a terrible time at Barcelona, but if he can make about half of what he was performing for the English Reds, I’m pretty sure the Bavarians will be happy. Lewandowski, who had complained about Bayern’s lack of signings in this window, praised his new teammate and also said that he isn’t worried on Coutinho’s possible problems to integrate with the squad at Bayern. Here’s what the Polish man said:

– Players like him can decide when a game can be won or not. And with an athlete like him, anyone can play along from the first match, ”

Who also gave his verdict on Coutinho was Bayern’s coach Niko Kovac. He talked about the possibility of the Brazilian starting at the match against Schalke this weekend:

– He is not yet at a fitness level to start on Saturday and play 90 minutes. Let’s put it slowly and not take risks.

Meanwhile, the charismatic Jurgen Klopp showed some kind of sadness as he was not able to re-sign Coutinho from Barcelona. Still, the German manager praised his former player, and also compared him to 2006 World Champion, Alessandro Del Piero:

– Coutinho has an unbelievable eye for goal from range. I haven’t seen a player coming off the left and striking the ball with such regularity and precision from those kinds of positions since Alessandro Del Piero. Bayern needed him. Now he will need to join the team. Bundesliga has won a great player – said the German to the magazine “Kicker”.
