Guillem Balague said : "Arsenal are not the only Premier League club who have made enquiries about him but he would like to go back to Real Sociedad," "The adaptation process will be easier there and all he wants is to play. "Since 1 December he's played only five minutes. He played against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on that date then he got an injury and was out for three games. But he has barely featured since. "There are some pictures of Zidane losing his cool because he didn't pressure in one incident and didn't track back in a game they won, so the suggestion is he's not at the level defensively that Zidane wants. "It goes back to this idea that Zidane doesn't do well with youngsters and their development. That has disappointed Real Madrid. "The question is whether Real's loss to third division Alcoyano on Wednesday changes anything. Before that game they had decided to let Odegaard go. The decision is just where he goes to" External link

Guillem Balague added : "He's a legend of the club and they will wait to see how it progresses - they don't want to accelerate that because it's not a guarantee of anything," "But the disappointment is not just because of results, though those have not been good. They lost to Cadiz and Shakhtar Donetsk at home, lost 4-1 against Valencia, lost to Alaves at home, Shakhtar away and Athletic Bilbao in the semi-finals of the Super Cup and now Alcoyano as well. "These are bad results but the disappointment is more than that. "There are two things the Real hierarchy are a bit annoyed about. "They saw him not giving any instructions at the end of 90 minutes against Alcoyano and no instructions at half-time in extra time. It kind of confirms the lack of instructions players get generally, as their football is mostly based on the quality of the players. "And the other thing is you can run with the quality of Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Luka Modric and Karim Benzema for a while but the plan was to recycle the side and start bringing youngsters in - players like Dani Ceballos, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo, Achraf Hakimi, Brahim Diaz, Sergio Reguilon, Luka Jovic and Martin Odegaard, and he hasn't done this at all. "These guys are either out or sold or want to go. Then there are players like Mariano Diaz, Federico Valverde, Alvaro Odriozola and Eder Militao - these young players were supposed to be part of the starting side more often than not, but again they seem to be used lately for less important games. That's the disappointment. "There is a big gap between the successful players and the new players and he doesn't seem able to make that transition. "The club are quite determined they don't want to do anything during the season but they see the end of an era" External link

Guillem Balague added ( about Josep Guardiola ) : "We all knew that Manchester City had put a deal on the table - the length of it we did not know - and City were not going to put any kind of pressure on him," "In the last couple of months, there have been stories about unrest in the camp, players' agents knocking on doors to see what's going on, just because they didn't know if Guardiola was going to stay on. "But the decision-makers at Manchester City have been very confident. The transition that started this summer - into a Manchester City version two, with Guardiola - will continue next summer as well. "Most of the transition is done, but there is more to do. He feels there is room for improvement and it needed him in charge of it" External link

Guillem Balague said : "At Barcelona there was so much tension that the last year [2011-12] was very difficult for him," "At Bayern Munich, after every game, he had to explain to his bosses why the team won or lost. It became clear in the last six or seven months of his contract that he was not going to renew. "But at City, he doesn't have to do any of that. He's motivated by the fact there are going to have to be changes in the squad and he's got the backing of the club to do that. "With the [presidential] elections at Barcelona on 24 January, it's a good time to say 'I won't be part of that' or 'you cannot use my name'. But also, it's time for everybody to focus on the job at hand and nobody should be thinking about leaving, because he's staying on" External link

But he has barely featured since. "There are some pictures of Zidane losing his cool because he didn't pressure in one incident and didn't track back in a game they won, so the suggestion is he's not at the level defensively that Zidane wants. "It goes back to this idea that Zidane doesn't do well with youngsters and their development. That has disappointed Real Madrid. "The question is whether Real's loss to third division Alcoyano on Wednesday changes anything. Before that game they had decided to let Odegaard go. The decision is just where he goes to" External link

Guillem Balague added : "He's a legend of the club and they will wait to see how it progresses - they don't want to accelerate that because it's not a guarantee of anything," "But the disappointment is not just because of results, though those have not been good. They lost to Cadiz and Shakhtar Donetsk at home, lost 4-1 against Valencia, lost to Alaves at home, Shakhtar away and Athletic Bilbao in the semi-finals of the Super Cup and now Alcoyano as well. "These are bad results but the disappointment is more than that. "There are two things the Real hierarchy are a bit annoyed about. "They saw him not giving any instructions at the end of 90 minutes against Alcoyano and no instructions at half-time in extra time. It kind of confirms the lack of instructions players get generally, as their football is mostly based on the quality of the players. "And the other thing is you can run with the quality of Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Luka Modric and Karim Benzema for a while but the plan was to recycle the side and start bringing youngsters in - players like Dani Ceballos, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo, Achraf Hakimi, Brahim Diaz, Sergio Reguilon, Luka Jovic and Martin Odegaard, and he hasn't done this at all. "These guys are either out or sold or want to go. Then there are players like Mariano Diaz, Federico Valverde, Alvaro Odriozola and Eder Militao - these young players were supposed to be part of the starting side more often than not, but again they seem to be used lately for less important games. That's the disappointment. "There is a big gap between the successful players and the new players and he doesn't seem able to make that transition. "The club are quite determined they don't want to do anything during the season but they see the end of an era" External link

Guillem Balague added ( about Josep Guardiola ) : "We all knew that Manchester City had put a deal on the table - the length of it we did not know - and City were not going to put any kind of pressure on him," "In the last couple of months, there have been stories about unrest in the camp, players' agents knocking on doors to see what's going on, just because they didn't know if Guardiola was going to stay on. "But the decision-makers at Manchester City have been very confident. The transition that started this summer - into a Manchester City version two, with Guardiola - will continue next summer as well. "Most of the transition is done, but there is more to do. He feels there is room for improvement and it needed him in charge of it" External link

Guillem Balague said : "At Barcelona there was so much tension that the last year [2011-12] was very difficult for him," "At Bayern Munich, after every game, he had to explain to his bosses why the team won or lost. It became clear in the last six or seven months of his contract that he was not going to renew. "But at City, he doesn't have to do any of that. He's motivated by the fact there are going to have to be changes in the squad and he's got the backing of the club to do that. "With the [presidential] elections at Barcelona on 24 January, it's a good time to say 'I won't be part of that' or 'you cannot use my name'. But also, it's time for everybody to focus on the job at hand and nobody should be thinking about leaving, because he's staying on" External link

Guillem Balague said ( about Wu Lei ) : "Before the Chinese investment came along, Espanyol was a bit of a depressing place, we'd not had many moments of hope for a few years," "Fans don't necessarily just want money, they want hope, something they can believe in – year after year of being mid-table brings you down. What the current coach Rubi is doing does suggest a narrative, so I hope the owners give him enough time, and in Wu Lei, I think we've got a serious player, so I'm very pleased we've got him for three more years to see how things develop" External link

Guillem Balague said : "Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde wants a number nine with experience in Spain - so the list gets smaller. He wants someone who could make an impact straight away and who will understand the role. "He admits he won't start. He comes in as a number nine who offers something different from Luis Suarez. Especially if they go through in the Copa del Rey - and Suarez has problems with his knee. He will be competitive in games - and in training. All of the sudden you have someone else biting. "When Valverde rang Quique Setien, his former Las Palmas manager, on Friday and said 'how about this guy?' Setien said 'in the big games, he will give you more than anyone else'. That was the decisive factor" External link
