Athletic is already moving. The club thinks about next season. The balance of the current has long been on the table and will take the front to Ziganda. The technician, who has not been the only culprit for a year to forget, pays with dismissal a course in which the team has been below its objectives and the directive has lived very far from reality and without offering correction tools.
The club-players, technicians, managers and amateurs-live in May in the midst of a fire: in a manual crisis that demands solutions and that will also bring consequences. The directive will strike the crisis with a rapid transition. In a few days the hiring of Berizzo will be announced and with it the first signings will arrive. Dani García (Eibar) is the only one of those hired with the running season that has not been officially announced.
The Athletic also works on the incorporation of Mikel Merino (Newcastle), which has agreed the conditions of arrival and a long-term linkage since January, but then did not sign because his current club refused to let him leave in the conditions Proposed by Ibaigane executives. The offer for Newcastle will be similar to then, but now the British team has more than enough time to make changes to the staff. The trick of the Magpies is that Athletic, for his particular philosophy, is a loyal customer and knew he would sit back and negotiate.
In addition, the Rojiblancos await response from Berchiche (PSG) and Herrera (United). It should be noted that the Lions is not the first choice of these two players: have contract in force with PSG and United and proposals to go to clubs that the upcoming season will compete in Europe, which is a nuance that does not fail the Bilbao.
