AS: “favorite”

Tonight, Real Madrid begins its season in Helsinki (Finland) with the European Super Cup against Eintracht Frankfurt (9 pm). A match in which Merengue has a clear advantage. Carlo Ancelotti declared that “the hexagram is very difficult but possible”.

On the Barcelona side, we press for the sacrifice of Gerard Pique, who asked to play for free “so that there is no problem with financial fair play”. An illegal request and rejected by the Barcelona management who nevertheless accepted a great gesture from Shakira’s ex-companion. The defender is said to be willing to forego a two-year contract and has agreed to take a further salary cut.

It is also a matter of Mercato of FC Barcelona who activated his fourth arm with 100 million euros more and Busquets accepted a salary cut…

Mundo Deportivo: De Jong is steady

Publicly lauded but pushed out behind the scenes, Frenkie de Jong remains assertive with Barcelona and takes frontpage at Mundo Deportivo. The Dutchman still wants to stay and will do everything despite attempts to terminate his contract. It also highlights the “big challenge” that Merengue faces in the European Super Cup.

SPORT: “Registration process”

Eager to capitalize on their recruits (Lewandowski, Ravenha, Conde, Christensen, Casey and Toure) as well as Ousmane Dembele in the opening match against Rayo Vallecano this weekend, FC Barcelona activated all its levers at the same time: it took back another 100 million euros by paying the junk ( Depay, Umtiti, Braithwaite) to go abroad and cut the salaries of his executive directors. There is also talk of maximum tension between Frenkie de Jong and Barcelona as well as Nico’s possible departure to Valencia.

Real Madrid and Karim Benzema also occupy a place on the front page with “Europe awaits its superhero”.
