Bayern linked to Ramos once again and could bring in Zidane? (Transfer Market Web)

So...could Bayern Munich really be contemplating a move for Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos? We had heard the rumor before, but now it’s back:

Interviewed by Cadena SER, Real Madrid owner, Florentino Perez, gave his updates about the ongoing extension talks with Spanish international centre-back and Blancos captain Sergio Ramos (35) stated: “First of all, let’s focus on bringing current season to an end. Once it’s over, we’ll think about what’s next. I love Ramos like a son, and I did everything we can to meet his demands. But we had to go for some cuts, wages included, due to the epidemic. And he knows that very well. Anyway, we’ll see what’s going to happen”.

Merengues backline icon is currently tracked by PSG, Juventus, Bayern Munich, and Manchester giants, all interested in signing him as a free agent.

Ramos would fill a need as a veteran presence at center-back. With Jerome Boateng moving on, Bayern Munich’s backline will have a boyband feel to it.

The other piece of this rumor was that Bayern Munich could be looking at Zinedine Zidane as a potential replacement for Hansi Flick:

While RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann is still the major candidate to replace Hansi Flick, Bayern Munich top brass, according to latest German news, are pondering to try bringing in Zinedine Zidane as next manager. Possibly parting ways with Real Madrid, for the second time around, Merengues early 2000’s football legend is part of Juventus list as well.

Spurs moving on from Nagelsmann? (Transfer Market Web)

Perhaps sensing getting Julian Nagelsmann is going to be too big of a task, Tottenham Hotspur is talking with Athletic Bilbao manager Marcelino Toral:

Currently training Athletic Bilbao, 55-year old Spaniard Marcelino Toral, according to The Athletic, is in talks with Tottenham, over a move to Spurs, ahead of next summer. London giants have just sacked José Mourinho, with Ryan Mason carrying the team to the end of current season, as a caretaker.

Three Bundesliga referees head into retirement due to age limit (T-Online)

The DFB will be enforcing their age limit for referees this summer against three regulars in the Bundesliga.

Manuel Gräfe, Guido Winkmann, and Markus Schmidt will officiate their final top flight games in the coming weeks. The DFB has an age limit of 47 years old for referees, and it’s rather controversial among referees as they don’t feel it’s fair for them.

Shot update: It’s better (Bavarian Football Works)

So, aside of a splitting headache and some nausea, day of Moderna #2 was much better. The fatigue was not as severe and I could move! I’m typically someone who drinks at least 128 ounces of water per day, but I was having trouble drinking any water at all for whatever reason. I had to shift to Gatorade (which I never drink straight...I always cut it with water because I’m an idiot).

My appetite was all over the place as I would spike through bouts of extreme hunger, but then had no stomach for anything we had available to eat. I’m not posting this whine or anything, but to give a PSA on what to expect if you are getting the shots.

Overall it was a much better day 2 and to quote Frank “The Tank” Ricard from Old School: “I’m back! You KNOW IT!”
