Ricardo Rodriguez's father hints Real Madrid move


The father of Wolfsburg defender Ricardo Rodriguez has hinted of a future transfer to Real Madrid for his 23-year old son.

The Switzerland international is one of the most coveted left-back in the world football right now, and was part of the Wolfsburg team that defeated Madrid 2-0 in the Champions league quarter-finals last Tuesday, where he opened the scoring for the Germans from the penalty spot.

His father, Jose Manuel Rodriguez, was part of the crowd and has claimed to have spoken with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and director Emilio Butragueno after the match.

“I met with Florentino Perez on Wednesday, and with Butragueno, too,” he told the Cadena Cope radio station, “He said congratulations, that I had a good player. Maybe with time he might be able to go to Madrid.”

“My son wants to go to a bigger team. He wants a career in a bigger team and Spain would be a great option.”

Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs earlier this week discussed on the player staying that it isn’t the time to talk about the transfer while admitting that Rodriguez has enough quality to be playing in a big team.

“Now is not the time to talk about figures and to put a price on a player,” he told Marca. “All I can say is that he is one of our most talented players, one of the best full-backs in the league.
