Diarra stays

05/28/2008

Real Madrid defensive miedfielder, Diarra will play for Real Madrid next season, despite the interrest from Inter Milano. The Mali captain seemed to have lost the battle with Gago for a place in starting eleven, and because of that, he’s morale was pretty affected, being unsure about his future. Altough he permanently stated that he wants to continue in Madrid, his situation was unclear. Speculations that Real Madrid would sign Roma’s Daniele de Rossi or Alberto Aquilani made Diarra’s future even more unclear.

Real Madrid sports director, Pedja Mijatovic had a meeting with Bernd Schuster and agreed that Diarra is needed next season in the Madrid squad, as he is a important piece in Schuster’s plan.

Another theory is that Inter Milano is no more interrested in signing Diarra, mainly because ex-coach Mancini was sacked yesterday and the new coach seems to be Mourinho. The portuguese manager would be interrested to land Chelsea’s Michael Essien.

C. Ronaldo = 50 million€ + Robinho + S. Ramos + Diarra

According to Marca, Manchester United are demanding 50 million€ plus three players from Real Madrid in order to release Cristiano Ronaldo. Those 3 players are Robinho, Diarra and Sergio Ramos.

Those 3 players are evaluated at 100 million€, IMHO: Diarra 25 million€, Robinho 35 million€, Sergio Ramos 40 million€. So the overall value of Cristiano Ronaldo would be 150 million€. This must be a joke.

I really hope Calderon and Mijatovic are not crazy to let Sergio Ramos or Diarra go. Robinho is a very talented player, but his life outside field is pretty restless. He must focus on his family and career. I guess I would agree Robinho + some money in exchange with C. Ronaldo.

There are rumours that Real Madrid will aproach the owners of Manchester United, the Glazer family, in order to convince them to sell Cristiano Ronaldo. I really hope this won’t happen, it wouldn’t be pro from Real Madrid board.
