Whatever Inter Milan might say about not selling Maicon to Real Madrid, the fact is that if Real Madrid match their asking price, I think they are prepared to sell the 29 year old to Real Madrid.
Maicon has a good five year period left of top level football and I think if reports are to be believed Inter are ready to sell Maicon for 20 million. 20 million is quite reasonable for a player of Maicon’s quality.
Inter people just said last week that Maicon would be staying with Inter Milan but the player himself has said that he would speak with Real Madrid after Copa America.
Reports have it that Inter Milan now have no option but to sell Maicon because his contract expires in 2013. So they might as well make some money now from Maicon rather than lose him on a free transfer couple of years into the future.
Real Madrid had wanted to sign Maicon last season but Inter’s 30 million asking price was a bit too much and Real Madrid did not break the bank for him then but now I think 20 million euro is a pretty good deal if you ask me.
In other news, Alvaro Morata, a young Real Madrid hot youth product has said that he is delighted to have signed a new deal at Real Madrid and will continue to improve and work hard in order to get some playing time under Jose Mourinho’s reign at Real Madrid.
Morata has beenahot productinEuropean football with the likes of Manchester United tracking the 18 year old’s progress at Real Madrid. Manchester United did try to sign him last season but Real Madrid refused. That at least tells you that Morata has got some good quality.
I think Mourinho should definitely give the youth of Real Madrid some chances of first team football. I think he will not do it this season and neither the next. Not until he wins everything with Real Madrid. When that happens, either he will leave Real Madrid and build his dynasty over here.
Mourinho is under a lot of pressure right now to deliver the goods and I think he will not take a chance with Real Madrid youth. He wants to win titles and the youth cannothelpRealMadridwintitles.ThatiswhyMourinho
