What Barcelona and Real Madrid are doing about Liverpool’s Champions League win – and the true value of Alisson underlined

Welcome to the second part of our European special on the Blood Red channel to see how the leading clubs on the continent are going to react to Liverpool winning the Champions League. In part one, we spoke to writers who cover Ligue 1 in France and the Bundesliga in Germany, and if you missed the show, you can listen to it by clicking HERE. But in part two Paul Wheelock picks up the phone to Simon Harrison, a Spanish football expert who covers La Liga for BT Sport and the i newspaper, who tells us all about the fallout from Barcelona’s humbling at Anfield, Real Madrid’s incredible spending spree, and how it is an end of an era for Atletico Madrid. But we start by speaking to Italian football writer John Solano, who is the editor of the excellent RomaPress.Net website. Now John got Liverpool fans very excited with what he had to say about Alisson Becker prior to the goalkeeper's arrival at Anfield in July last year. So, naturally we started our conversation by talking about the brilliant Brazilian – before moving on to discuss what will be a summer of transition for Serie A’s top clubs.
