Eden Hazard rejects move to Real Madrid because of Abramovich, Wanda Nara speaks out on reported rejection and more Real Madrid transfer news: February 17, 2019
Hello and welcome to the Real Madrid transfer news and rumours of the day! Here are the top stories of the day surrounding the Galacticos!
Arsene Wenger rejected Madrid
Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that Real Madrid came calling more than once but he rejected them every time. The former Gunners boss is currently a free agent but could very well be back into the management game.
And now, he has revealed that the Real Madrid train is gone for him and that the reason why he didn’t sign for the Galacticos was owing to his values and morals.
"I have turned down Real Madrid more than once, but I must say now it's over for me.
"Yes, we live with our values at the time it was in the middle of the process of moving the stadium. I guaranteed that and I'm happy with my decision."
He then added that there are not many managers who would say no to the Galacticos.
"I feel that if you ask any manager in the world they would say yes as they [Real Madrid] are the biggest club in the world," he added.
Hazard says no to Madrid
According to reports from Spain, Eden Hazard has said no to Real Madrid. Apparently, Roman Abramovich has contacted Zinedine Zidane to take over the reins at Chelsea and the Frenchman’s arrival would suffice to keep the Belgian at the club.
Wanda Nara speaks out
There was a story a few days ago that claimed that Real Madrid have opted out of signing Mauro Icardi due to his wife and agent Wanda Nara. However, she took to Twitter to reveal that the stories are false before deleting the tweet altogether.
"The reports published about the Spanish club (Real Madrid) are totally false. Maybe this time too will give me as the reason, as when they asked me about the great interest of Juventus and I was treated as a liar, but then all has been confirmed by their sporting director,” she had tweeted.
