The meringues will come out of the expensive record of Gareth Bale, as well as Francisco Alarcón “Isco” and Marcelo (not sure), who end their contract in June.

One of them is England’s Wolverhampton, who would seek to have in their club the powerful connection Chucky – Raúl Jiménez, who has not appeared with splendor in a game of the Mexican team for some time.
