Real Madrid did not fail to sign Ronaldo And Van Der Vaart surprised
Mijatovic has come out and put rest to media’s hype about Real Madrid’s failure to sign C.Ronaldo. Mijatovic has said that Real Madrid had the money, the intent and everything else that goes along with signing a superstar but Manchester United were not willing to negotiate over C.Ronaldo so much so that Manchester United did not even put a price on Ronaldo, they just said no.
Mijatovic said that if Ronaldo had a buyout clause then Real Madrid would have signed him and we would have been experincing the Ronaldo mania here at the Bernebeu.
Well I can’t and can blame him. I can’t blame him because he (as he says) tried everything to sign him though I think Florentino Perez was much more efficient in his man managment and hired people that could negotiate big name players.
Mijatovic I don’t think is the most experienced guy in this field. It can be judged by the fact, the amount on money Real Madrid payed for Pepe and Van Der Vaart. Both are good players but considering each ones circumtances, I think Real Madrid did not negotiate well at all in their bids.
I can criticize Mijatovic, that he should have had a plan B in place ready to be worked on , in case Ronaldo didnotcome to Real Madrid (which he didn’t) and because of that, Real Madrid ended up loosing players like Quaresma and Daniel Alves to Inter Milan and Barcelona respectively.
Coming to Van Der Vaart now.
The Dutch international recognised that scoring once in the Bernabéu is special, but for a midfielder to net three times is something that does not happen very often.
Sporting de Gijón had started brightly, but were then taken apart in a flurry of goals by a Madrid side led on by Van der Vaart though it has to be said that Sporting Gijon did not have the best defence in the world which made things a little less thandifficultforRealMadrid.
