There has been rumours that Real Madrid as asked - the word is asked - about Napoli forward CAVINI. However, Spanish Sports daily "Marca" have gone against the grain & given their apparent exclusive in reference to Real Madrid , as they "pride" themselves with this journalistic talent even if correct or wrong. At least we have this categorical front cover to immortalize the paper as proof: if they get it right, they deserve the Spanish Sports title, if they get it wrong, this front cover can join the many others that illustrates the speculative nature of the sporting press.
|Cover of Marca: 22 of March 2011|
The story says REAL MADRID has chosen AC ROMA midfielder DE ROSSI with big titles: "DE ROSSI YES or YES", then in smaller titles: "25M€ is the maximum that Madrid will pay Roma". The description continues on saying:
"He has the profile wanted by Mou: creative, dynamic & determinate"
"The Roman midfielder takes the "pole" position over Cesc & Schweinsteiger"
So we have two other names, therefore its more a desire than a firm event.
De Rossi has been on the agenda of Real Madrid for many seasons & this alone gives this story some credibility & weight. However, as always, Football changes rapidly & what is white today is black tomorrow.
All I can say at this point is, stay tuned! This will not be the first name & the first cover that we will see as firm candidates for Real Madrid next season. Spanish Sports paper Marca will continue doing their investigative sports journalism & give us more fantastic covers i coming days, weeks & months.
