Kiyan Sobhani (@KiyanSo) is the head of SB Nation site Managing Madrid and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) to break down the rampant spending going on in Madrid this summer as Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid refresh their squads.
Kiyan and Jeremy ponder the now-completed João Félix and the latest in his predecessor Antoine Griezmann’s departure. They also discuss how Diego Simeone will utilize his central midfield quintet after Héctor Herrera’s arrival from Porto and if Diego Costa can bounce back from a nightmarish 2018/19 season.
Then, the podders analyze the new-look Real Madrid and how Zinedine Zidane will accommodate new signings Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic and Ferland Mendy. They take Twitter questions pondering other players who may depart the Spanish capital this summer and more.
