When SPANISH FOOTBALL goes into summer slow mode, the whole industry that is dragged by it also suffers. The media see how their newspapers sell less & TV Sports shows even that the time to go on holidays. The real creativity over the summer-break in Sports media departments is to figure out what the hell to publish or talk about the following day to get people "excited" & buy content.
The last pearl to stimulate excitement is a normal comment made in Italy by the son of AC MILAN owner Silvio Berlusconi, Pier, also Vice - President of the Italian multi-media group Mediaset. Pier says basically that if allowed to dream, FC Barcelona Andres Iniesta would be the player he would pick to play for AC MILAN. Fairly normal dream, I too if allowed to dream would want Iniesta at Atletico de Madrid, & if Real Madrid President Perez was to dream he would see Iniesta at his Club.
My surprise is to see this "having a coffee with Footy mates" comment splashed in local Spanish Sports papers "Marca", "AS" & "Sport" & even in Italian press. Just to freeze any dreams other than hypothetical, Andres Iniesta is NOT GOING ANYWHERE, & less to AC Milan, at least not next season.
A quite day in Spanish Football, obviously.
