🎙| Kun Aguero’s interview with El Pais

🗣 “Maradona's death? I felt bad, very bad. When I found out, I thought it was a lie, like other times, but since I saw that a lot of people were saying it, I asked someone close and he answered that it was true."
🗣 "Wondering what I needed to win the Ballon d'Or? I thought about it, and one day I asked Leo. He told me that to have a firm chance to win the Ballon d'Or, I had to win the Champions League and he is right."
🗣 "Any Problems with Guardiola? No, never. I never argued with him. We did have to clarify things. When he arrived, as we didn't know each other, we had a bit of a trial run. The last three years have been fantastic at City."

@ferrancorreas • Mateu Alemany was already in contact with Manchester City in the summer, becoming interested in Sterling & some others.

• And the contacts, taking advantage of the good relationship between the clubs, have continued.

✍ (PEDRI): Pedri's contract renewal is in the final stages.

• There is already an economic agreement and talks will continue this coming week to agree on the durability and seal it.
#FCB 🇪🇸

Via (🟢): @martinezferran [md]
@martinezferran ❗Barça want a 5-year deal but Pedri's agent wants a shorter deal. A 3+2 years contract isn't ruled out.

• Pedri's intention is to make a career at Barça and the duration is purely the term for the renewal of the conditions.
#FCB 🇪🇸

Via (🟢): @martinezferran [md]
@martinezferran ❗The club, for their part, doesn't see it as a problem and they have valid reasons too.

• Pedri's release clause of €400m is likely to be maintained but what Barça understand is that his contract has to be adapted to his prominence.

Reverter: Some of you will think that it took a long time. you are right. 90 days after the last board left the emails were deleted. The directors did not have club computers but personal ones where the emails were redirected. The documentation has been hard to find.
