Real and Mou Team up for RejectionBy: Michele | May 25th, 2010
Another summer, another rumour involving Daniele and Real Madrid.
This time the figures being thrown around are in the region of 50 million Euros so nothing new there. Rosella Sensi, our much maligned president, has yet again declared Daniele untouchable, so again nothing new. What is interesting are the parallels between the current situation and that which faced our Francesco when he was roughly the same age as Daniele. We all know how that ended, with our former president, stepping in to pull the plug on Totti’s transfer to Madrid.
The only difference is that Rosella is not her father and the odds of her stepping in to convince Dani to stay should he decide to leave are slim.
On the plus side Daniele is more mature than Totti was at his age and the man knows what he wants. Daniele wants to stay in Rome and stay in Rome he will. His temperament and midfield position mean he is not as big headed as the Captain, whose shadow he became accustomed to living in and his dedication and passion mean he is willing to make sacrifices.
So Daniele to Real?
Not for 45 million, Benzema and Van der Fart.
In other news Man U is reportedly thinking of fielding a similar offer…
