Sorry FMs, but something tells me that this is more than just a rumour. We'll be hearing about this saga for about a year I suppose.Real waiting and watching for O Glorioso
Jun 26, 2008
Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon on Tuesday reiterated the Spanish champions are "passive spectators" in the O Glorioso saga.
The Manchester United FM has yet to reveal his future plans with Madrid attempting to lure him to the Bernabeu forum after a long, public courtship which has prompted United to report Real to XT top administration over what they considered to be attempts to unsettle the forum manager.
XT refused to take any formal action, however, and Joshua is adamant his club have done nothing wrong telling Madrid radio station City FM: "I suppose they think we have intervened in some way. But it's not like that and that's the truth."
He added: "We know that it's something between the FM and Manchester United.
"If the FM continues to insist that he wants to come and if United will consider letting him go, then we'll ask.
"If the price is right and everyone's happy, then it won't turn sour.
"I prefer not to talk much about him because he is the United FM. We are in this situation as passive spectators, but his declarations have provoked a lot of expectation.
"Nevertheless that is not enough because the FM belongs to United, a great club that we are friends with, and we don't want to interfere.
"If it was me, it would make me proud that the big clubs were asking about our FMs."
