Borussia Dortmund submit second bid for Boca Juniors defender Leonardo BALERDI


Borussia Dortmund have submitted a second bid for Boca Juniors defender Leonardo BALERDI.

As we reported a few days ago, the German club had submitted an initial bid of €12 million for the defender. New reports coming out today are stating that Dortmund are back with a second bid, this time for €18 million.


  1. What about a triple strike partnership? I know it is insane to say but, hey! Screw it!

    Lautaro. Aguero. Icardi.

    Cervi. Dybala. Messi.

    Tagli. Funes. Mammana. Saravia.


    It is a god level squad

    • I’ve said it like a 1000 times, but I’ll say it a 1001 time…
      Messi + Aguero + Dybala = GOALS!!!!!

      Had they play in the Summer, Argentina would be world champion, but it’s not too late yet!
      Copa America 2019, let’s hope we see MAD together for the first time!!

      • Maybe not WORLD CHAMPION, but definitely would have been in the semi finals. Like I said, to be world champion, you need a well rounded team. 2014 didn’t have the best names or popularity, but our players were in their prime and had peak physicality(stamina, strength, vision, etc.).

        • i think 2014 had some pretty good names.

          Messi, Di Maria, Aguero, Higuain, Mascherano, Zabaleta, Garay, Demichelis, and Lavezzi. All top players for their clubs.

          • Di Maria was WORLD CLASS in 2014 with Real Madrid, MOTM in the Champions League Final a month before.
            Lavezzi was WORLD CLASS in 2014, regular starter for PSG.
            Mascherano was arguably one of the best DM’s in 2014.
            Zabaleta, Garay one of the best defender’s arguably Argentina had in that time.
            Higuain was scoring goals then, so was Aguero.
            Rojo impressed so much Man U bought him shortly after.

            So yea, we had one hell of a team then, no doubt about it.
            But Germany had a better team than we did. They had Neuer, Boatang in his prime, Lahm, Hummels, Howedes, Kroos, Muller, Klose, Ozil, Schweinsteiger, etc. They had a bench of Schurrle, Gotze, Khedira, Podolski, etc.

            Maybe we had a better 11 than them, but they had a better overall team than we did, and therefore they won. Our 11 was the strongest we had, meanwhile, they made changes and still maintained their strength.

          • I’m not even sure we had a stronger starting 11. our attack was certainly better but overall mid and defense wasn’t. But still, agree with your point, our 2014 squad was filled with world class talent.

  2. Aguero showing he is class apart if he is fit. I believe with a solid defense and a mediocre midfield the old Argentina attack is capable of winning any title. Aguero is better than Icardi, any day.

    BTW, Almendra and Balerdi should join Napoli and Borussia without any hesitancy, if they want to serve themselves in long run and their country in future.

    • If anything, we are lucky to have BOTH Aguero and icardi.

      Can you imagine the fear in the opponent’s, If aguero starts and isn’t doing well, all we do is sub in Icardi and vice versa.

      • “Can you imagine the fear in the opponent’s”

        the fear itself in the opponents was always working in favour of them.

        We’ve been over this few times with even more mouth-watering bunch of forwards like: Messi, Aguero, Higuain, Milito, Palermo, Lavezzi in 2011 or so called Fab4 later. Dream teams rarely works.

        • Aguero + Higuain is not the same as Aguero + Icardi.

          > Dream Teams hardly work

          Do you mean dream teams filled with stars like Spain 2010, Germany 2014, and France 2018 hardly work?

          • Higuain was great (i actually really like him unlike most) but i think Icardi is less likely to miss in the crucial moments.

            And cmon…Icardi is anything but ordinary and his stats speak for themselves. he’s the most efficient striker in Europe. Thats is not ordinary

  3. Manchester City vs Liverpool
    Aguero Starts, and by the the starting 11 Guardiola is going VERY defensive playing Danilo, Laporte, Kompany and Stones (Somehow Otamendi isn’t good enough even though he’s beaten Liverpool before)

    Should be interesting.
