BREAKING NEWS: SAVIOLA to play for Real Madrid
After more than one endless soap operas regarding Javier SAVIOLA's future, it appears that he will leave FC Barcelona to play for non other than arch-rivals Real Madrid.
Prestigious Spanish sports newspaper Marca is confirming the news that SAVIOLA will join fellow Argentineans Gonzalo HIGUAIN and Fernando GAGO at the White Empire on July 1st this year.
Personally, I think it is a good move for the Little Rabbit as he was underestimated very often by manager Frank RIJKAARD at Barça.
There were rumours of SAVIOLA having 15 offers from 6 different countries, but I doubt there was a club bigger than Real Madrid interested in his services at the present time, so I believe it is a wise choice by him.
However, he must know that he will be exposed to abuse from Barça fans the first (and every) time that he'll face the Catalan Giants wearing a white jersey.
It remains to be seen whether if he will have enough chances to play for the first team in Madrid. But it doesn't change his situation that much, as it was the same at Barça.
Good luck to Javier in this next experience and here's hoping that this is good news for our National Team, provided that he plays more regularely and has more chances to hit form.
