Madrid sports daily As publishes today an interview with Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, regarding the European Commission investigations on possible tax privileges for seven Spanish clubs, including Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Reports had suggested the investigation began when the German club denounced this matter in the European Commission. But Rummenigge stated “we didn’t denounce them.”
“They meet the financial fair-play requirements, so I just have to congratulate them,” he told As. However, Rummenigge pointed out “Madrid and Barcelona get 150 million euros from television rights and we get 35.”
The Spanish daily also reports that Real Madrid home-grown player Juan Mata, now at Chelsea, is about to complete a 45-million-euros move to Manchester United.
Meanwhile, Spain’s most sold sports newspaper, Marca, publishes an special report about Luka Modric, explaining how Barcelona could have signed him years ago but they didn’t finally made the decision.
