Barcelona look at Zubieta again to reinforce their quarry. The Catalan club has ‘fished’ again in the realistic quarry by signing one of its last pearls, a 14-year-old attacking midfielder named Dani Rodríguez, who played in the txiki cadet team of the txuri-urdin structure, as reported in its Wednesday edition of the Noticias newspaper in Gipuzkoa.He is the most outstanding player of the generation of 2005 in the quarry of Real Sociedad, an attacking player who can act on the inside in the attacking position or on the wing. Born in the Gipuzkoan town of Astigarraga, his quality had not gone unnoticed by the leading teams on the continent and there were already several European clubs closely following his developments. Barcelona, through its scout in Gipuzkoa, former realist player Juanan Mentxaka, I had very good reports from Dani Rodríguez, and she had contacted her parents a long time ago, always putting Real on notice of this situation. In the realistic club they have tried to convince them not to leave the Zubieta structure, but finally Dani Rodríguez will follow in the wake of many other guys from Gipuzkoa who left the province to go to the Masía, such as Mikel Arteta, Yanguas, Oier Olazabal … among others.Curiously, this movement contrasts with another that has just closed Real Sociedad to reinforce the cadet team of its quarry. Because the San Sebastian club has taken over the services of Dani Díaz Gandara, a 13-year-old left-handed midfielder from Santander (generation of 2004, one after that of the realistic cadet who leaves for Barcelona) who arrives from Racing de Santander, who has given him the letter of freedom for not wanting to accept the proposal of the Santander club to land at Real Madrid, which He intended to take over his services and had reached an agreement with Racing Santander. A strange move by the Cantabrian club that Real has taken advantage of to take over the services of a footballer intended by Real Madrid, and for which Barcelona itself had also shown intent. Díaz Gandara’s family has opted for the Real’s proposal that their son finish his sports and academic training in Zubieta.
Quietly, all but unheralded, Donald Trump has begun tilting significantly away from Pakistan and toward another South Asian ally — a counterweight to China that could help tip the balance, particularly in the region’s potentially most sensitive flashpoint, the South China Sea. That enemy of my enemy is India, and it is not an inconsiderable friend to have. At the same time, though, Trump’s actions have opened another door to a resurgent China that could prove even more dangerous down the road.Read it at CNN Related Items
