Zapping Goal! Football Club Real Madrid: the most expensive transfers of the MerenguesIn the press this morning, there is a lot of talk about the Ballon d’Or since yesterday’s Champions League final opposed three of the main candidates. Merengue’s victory confirms Karim Benzema in his pole position, Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah having failed to make the difference despite multiple attempts. But a new candidate emerged from the Dionysian night in the person of Thibaud Courtois. Because if Liverpool did not find the fault yesterday, it is only thanks to the prowess of the Belgian goalkeeper, decisive on five occasions. Moreover, Courtois will have been fundamental in the coronations of Real Madrid in La Liga and especially in C1 this season. Faced with PSG, Chelsea or City, it was he who avoided heavy defeats or saved the furniture at critical times. We remember in particular his festival at the Park, where the score would never have been 0-1 without him, or even against the Sky Blues on the return, when they also led 1-0. Goals always speak louder than saves in a Ballon d’Or election but, this season, Courtois certainly deserved a crowning glory.Ballon d’Or loading ⏳ pic.twitter.com/e3QAiN082X— ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) May 28, 2022To sum up Now big favorite in the race for the 2022 Ballon d’Or, Karim Benzema has seen a new contender emerge in his own ranks as Thibaud Courtois was fundamental in Real Madrid’s Champions League crown this season.
