Spain’s most sold newspaper, Marca, claims today in its front page that Angel di Maria has promised to stay at Real Madrid at least until June 2014.
The Argentinian winger has rubbished the rumours of a possible exit in the January transfer market, stating he’ll keep on fighting to get minutes of play at Real.
Marca’s main focus on their front page is on youngster Jese Rodriguez. A source from the club has told the Madrid daily “Jese will be a world-class star.”
“Real don’t put any limits on how far he can go,” Marca states. “The 20-year-old is living the best moment of his career,” they argue. “His fatherhood -he has a one-year-old kid- has helped him to mature,” they add.
The other main Spanish sports paper, As, publishes an statistical report claiming “Jese has a better scoring average than Karim Benzema.”
They also report that “Iker Casillas finishes 2013 with better numbers than Diego Lopez.” “He has conceded a goal every 161 minutes, Lopez every 72 minutes,” they argue.
Both Madrid sports dailies highlight today Real Madrid’s Christmas toast. “The President, coaches and captains of Madrid make a toast for much success,” Marca titles. “Merry Christmas,” is As main headline.
