The goalkeeper of Ukraine's national football team and Zorya Luhansk FC Andriy Lunin may join Real Madrid, the winners of this season's UEFA Champions League.
According to FootballHub, Zorya have been negotiating with Liverpool, Real Sociedad and Napoli, too; Italians already offered eight million Euros for Lunin. However, Los Blancos, who most recently got the new head coach, still are the main contenders for the gifted Ukrainian. As of June 13, the talks are still underway.
Previously, the sports media announced that Julen Lopetegui will be chairing Real Madrid in the new season. His predecessor Zinedine Zidane resigned almost immediately after winning the main trophy of UEFA Champions League.
It is noted that after the game the UEFA representatives presented the board of the NSC Olimpiyskiy a certificate on increasing of the stadium’s category.
“The Union of European Football Associations certifies that the NSC Olimpiyskiy is classified in the UEFA elite list of stadiums,” the certificate says.
Before, the NSC Olimpiyskiy was classified as the 4th category stadium. The stadiums of this category have a right to host the World Cup, European Football Championship, UEFA Champions League and the Europe League finals. The NSC Olimpiyskiy got this category after its last reconstruction and hosting the Euro 2012 final.
