Guti urges Real to seek Silva lining

SoccerNews in English Premier League, La Liga 28 Jun 2012


Former Real Madrid star Guti has urged the club to make a bid for Manchester City playmaker David Silva.

The former Valencia man played an integral role in City’s successful English Premier League campaign last season, and Guti feels he would be a better option than Tottenham’s Luka Modric.

“As a Madridista, I close my eyes, and see him in Madrid,” Guti told AS. “There would be no better signing. In his position, he is the best of the best.

“Hopefully, he can come and offer a lot. It would be a great addition to a template that is already too good in itself.

“(Modric) is very talented. He’s proven himself to be very good for Tottenham and Croatia, where there are flashes of quality. But I look up to Silva, who is above him.”

Jose Mourinho led Real Madrid to Liga glory last season, and Guti said he was delighted with his former side’s performances, while singling out Mesut Oezil for praise.

“Madrid are doing very well, are forming a good group, and creating a style of play. There’s a chance of again. They’ll continue to fight against Barcelona and all the other teams who are capable of winning,” he said.

“One aim of the fans will be winning the Champions League. Neither Chelsea nor Bayern Munich were better (than Madrid) in Europe last season. Hopefully we can do better next year.

“Real have found a great player in Oezil, especially since he did not cost much money.”

Finally, the former Besiktas man discussed Kaka’s situation at the club, and said the Brazilian is going through a complicated period in his career.

“He has had a bad stage professionally. He has played with a lot of trouble, and that’s always complicated. He hasn’t had any luck here. If he leaves, he would be able to start anew,” he said.
