Real Madrid target Palacios « to remain at River until June »
Real Madrid’s pursuit of River Plate midfielder Exequiel Palacios has been confirmed by the Argentinean club’s president, Rodolfo D’Onofrio, but the Bernabéu’s intention to try and sign the very appraised 20-year-old in January looks set to be baffled after the player’s specialist said he needs to stay in Argentina until next summer.
River and Real Madrid will both be in the United Arab Emirates to contest the Club World Cup not long from now and Renato Corsi revealed to TyC Sports that transactions would almost certainly be started there yet cautioned Madrid that River will wait for extensively more than Palacios’ 15-million-euro discharge provision.
River to hold out for more than release clause
« He needs to remain until June and wouldn’t like to leave for the sum in his discharge provision, » Corsi said.“We have made a condition and it is that we will not sell for the clause fee. After the Club World Cup we’ll begin to discuss numbers.
It’s conceivable that we may concur an arrangement now and he will leave in June, because then he can start from zero in pre-season whereas if he goes now it will be with the season already halfway through.”
