Real Madrida s new signing, Danilo, has commented that he wants Manchester United target Sergio Ramos to stay at the club along with Iker Casillas while claiming that Rafael Beniteza s reputation as a tough task-master does not scare him.
Sergio Ramos has been linked with a move to Manchester United after clashing with Real Madrid over his contract negotiations while reports suggest that the club is keen on selling Iker Casillas this summer in a bid to make room for David De Gea.
However new signing Danilo believes that the two Spaniards are historic figures at the club and should therefore continue to play for Real Madrid in the upcoming season.
“They’re historic players at the club, the sort of figures that you can lean on when times are tough. They’re extremely important for the club, whatever the situation.a
However the former Porto right-back insisted that he wasna t on the a insidea regarding the situation with Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas but opined that he would like them to stay on at Real Madrid.
a I’m not on the inside, so I don’t know what’s going on or what their situation is, but speaking from the outside and with all due respect, as a new Real Madrid player I’d like them to stay”.
Speaking about Rafael Benitez, Danilo opined that the managera s reputation as a a tough task-mastera does not intimidate him as he hopes to develop as a player at Real Madrid.
“I like rigour and focus. They make you grow and develop. I’m not at all afraid or anxious [about Ben tez’s reputation]; on the contrary, it makes me breathe easy because I know I’ll be pushed to my limits”
It will be interesting to see Danilo fight with Dani Carvajal for a position in the starting line-up as Real Madrid hope to turn a new leaf with the appointment of Rafael Benitez as the manager.
