Everytime Manchester United have a good defender, in-form defender, It happens that Real Madrid wants it. Rumours are going about Nemanjia Vidic, It happened with Gabriel Heinze, finally he left Madrid. Madrid didn’t allow him to settle peacefully.
Reminds me of a quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.
Madrid copies or steals, while ManU develops someone else.
