WORLD SPORTS – Fernando Gago’s agent has launched a scathing attack on Real Madrid over the club’s treatment of the 26-year-old.The Argentine midfielder’s future remains up in the air after Roma refused to exercise their option to buy the player outright after his season on loan at the Olimpico.
Having been deemed surplus to requirements by Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, Gago is currently assessing his options, but his representative Marcelo Lombilla insists a return to the Spanish capital is out of the question.
“He does not want to convince Mourinho, we know that he does not count on him,” Lombilla told Deportes Cope.
“The worst thing that can happen in your life is going to a place where you are not wanted. In his last season at Madrid, it looked like he had scabies, and he had a hard time there.
“He does not want to go to Russia or Turkey, he is not going to play at just ‘some’ place.”
“There was not an agreement with Roma, and we are now listening to other clubs, but we do not have any concrete offer yet.”
