Real Madrid interested in Elia

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dutch striker, Eljero Elia is targeted by Real Madrid. Elia is 24-years old and he plays excellent for several seasons, the dutch is the leader of Hambrug and he plays a very important rule in his national selection.

During this summer transfer window Juventus showed the most interest for him. Elia is characterized by fantastic dribbling and great speed, which creates space for him and his teammates.

The reason that Real Madrid is interested in him is obvious: He is a similar type of player as Neymar. So Real Madrid could get a superior dribbler and a third striker for much less money.

It means that Real Madrid could use Elia as a alternative for Neymar, for who Real Madrid needs to pay enormous ammount of money. While Hamburg is willing to let Elia go for €15m. Eljero Elia is an attacker, more precisely an attacking midfielder, but he can also play on the right and the left wing.

Mourinho: “Real Madrid gave a spectacular performance from the first to the last minute”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jose Mourinho spoke to the press after the spectacular match.

“Real Madrid gave a spectacular performance from the first to the last minute. I just say what I think. We came here to play. What I’m about to say is not a criticism, I’m just stating a fact: there were no ball-boys in the second half, which is something typical of small teams when experiencing difficulties. What happened simply happened, but I’m nevertheless happy with my team.”

“We feel like we played two very good games in their entirety. This team is better than it was last year. The longer you work with people, the better the conditions are to have a better year. We played nine games this preseason and proved to be better than we were last year in the last two. I’m happy with the progress my men have made.”

“The referee must punish what he deems punishable. Pepe and Marcelo played a great game, one for the entire 90 minutes and the other for 45. Pepe saw a booking for a minor tackle and Marcelo gave a great performance. I’m not going to say we’re happy because we didn’t win the Spanish Super Cup; that would be hypocritical of me. We intend to play like men and not fall on the ground at the slightest touch.”
