Exclusive: Jose Mourinho linked with shock swoop for Miami-based dolphin

Barcelona players, still not including Lionel Messi, had a day out at the Miami Sequarium and got to swim with dolphins and even compare their skills with a ball up against the marine mammals.

The likes of Victor Valdes, Sergio Busquets, David Villa, Xavi and Pedro got into the water with the dolphins and it wasn’t long before a ball was brought out for the stars of the show to display some tricks.

Valdes later posted a video of himself on Facebook playing in goal against the dolphins, admitting “we had a good time” despite being beaten by one “penalty.”

Rumours have now begun that Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is preparing a shock swoop for the dolphin ahead of the El Clasico Super Cup matches coming up in August.

Footage of Victor Valdes being beaten by a dolphin is here.
