Yes, a bit early... but this article just appeared.

http://www.marca.com/2014/04/03/futbol/equipos/athletic/1396520522.html

According to that article, which is Marca's so possibly not too reliable, FC Schalke'04 which we still know from our Europa League campaign two years ago will held a pre-season tournament on August 2nd and 3rd. They want to invite Newcastle United, Málaga and us.
However, there's some lines written we should qualify for the Champions League to be invited.

Anyway, I'd love it as it's not too far away for me. I bet there would be some more happy to welcome Athletic there ;).

I would definititely prefer a tour to Schalke 04!
Because I live in Germany... but I don't think it will happen. Just last year, Athletic was in Germany for an amistoso against Freiburg...

So Athletic probably will visit Austria. Real Sociedad will travel to my country. If possible I'll try to catch their friendlies, Austria unfortunately is too far for me, I better save some money for the real European adventures later on ;).

Does the Toulouse game give Athletic the chance to look at any French Basque players who might be playing? I think they have a few is there any good enough for us!!

Do you think he would benefit from a change of club and surroundings? I have checked him out looks like a good prospect!
