Madrid Press: Alfredo di Stefano buried in private ceremony


Angel di Maria’s Argentina will play in the World Cup final on Sunday after they saw off Holland 4-2 on penalties. The match itself, which ended 0-0 after extra time, was possibly the worst of the tournament with both sides appearing to be too scared to lose rather than wanting to go for the win.

Real Madrid winger di Maria took no part because he is sidelined through injury and is likely to miss the showpiece event too.

In Real Madrid news, the main story is the continued coverage of Alfredo di Stefano’s death. The former Los Blancos striker, who won five European Cups and eight La Liga titles during an incredible 11 years as a player at the club, died at the aged of 88 on Saturday. The honorary president of Real Madrid was buried in the Almudena cemetery in the Spanish capital yesterday after a private, family funeral.

In other news, Alvaro Morata is set to sign a four-year deal with Juventus very shortly having ironed out the final parts of his personal terms with the Italian champions.

And according to Marca, PSG are set to offer Real Madrid 60 million euros for di Maria. The winger could be on his way out of the club should Los Blancos decide to pursue james Rodriguez, and the French side want him in Paris. Manchester United are also monitoring the situation.


  1. I would love Angel Di Maria to stay to play both the super cup games and Club World Cup before leaving the team, if that is popular demand.
