Real Madrid has been in the news for a multitude of reasons in recent weeks, as has always been the case with the Spanish giants. From rosy topics including Kylian Mbappe’s arrival and negotiations with Alphonso Davies to the less pleasant news on controversies, there is never a silent day in Madrid.

Javier Tebas, the president of La Liga, has always been vocal on Real Madrid-related subjects and his interviews often provide fans with a deeper understanding of the club’s situation, especially surrounding new transfers and their feasibility.

The La Liga president spoke in a recent interview with COPE about a host of Real Madrid-related topics, right from the controversy with Sevilla to some possible signings.

He began by commenting on Sevilla’s official complaint against Real Madrid TV for posting videos criticising the referee selected for their recent meeting.

“We will support them [Sevilla]. It is okay to criticize because we have freedom of expression, but the constant complaining every week and the superiority they show are not valid arguments,” he said.

He then, however, went on to state that he had not dived deep into the general criticism of RMTV targeting referees with their content, saying: “I have not studied the matter.”

Moving on, Tebas was quizzed about Valencia’s decision to prohibit Netflix’s entry into Mestalla for the upcoming clash against Real Madrid.

The online streaming giants were initially granted permission to take shots from the back end on Vinicius Jr, especially given the racial abuse he suffered at the venue last time.

“These are decisions taken by Valencia FC and they decided that Netflix will not enter the stadium. I must respect that,” the president said.

The Spanish businessman then went on to give his two cents on Real Madrid’s possible haul of Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich and whether it was financially possible for Los Blancos to secure the deal.

“With caution, because I do not know the salary that the players will receive, I can say that Real Madrid has the optimal financial solvency to do this.”

Finally, Tebas took a dig at Real Madrid president Florentino Perez on the proposed Super League, saying,

“I give Florentino Pérez and his general manager 10 to manage Real Madrid, but 0 to manage competitions.”

It will also be the final home game for Real Madrid legend Toni Kroos, who will be retiring this summer.

The German international has been named in the squad list and will get his chance to say goodbye to the Santiago Bernabeu faithful tomorrow.

Nacho Fernandez might also be playing his final game at the home of Real Madrid with his contract expiring at the end of the season and no renewal discussed.
