Danilo ‘Misses Real Madrid’
Manchester City full-back Danilo has admitted that he misses Real Madrid in an interview with Spanish paper AS. The Brazilian joined Manchester City from the La Liga giants this summer.
Danilo says he enjoyed his time at the club and looks back on his time there with fondness, “I miss Real Madrid to be honest. I had two incredible years winning important things and the people always treated me really well, but you have to turn the page.”
There have been rumours linking City with a sensational Bosman swoop for Lionel Messi who is still in the final year of his contract at Barcelona. Danilo says he would love to play with the 5 time World Player of the Year.
“We have a really good squad, but you can improve everything… Messi is a genius. Of course I would like to play with him, he’s one of the best.”
Danilo had kind words for compatriot and City teammate Gabriel Jesus too, “He’s Brazilian but I didn’t know him, he has surprised me with his quality and maturity despite only being 20 years old.”
