Another day another report of another team wanting Odsonne Edouard, this evening’s however is somewhat bigger than the usual, with Real Madrid reported to be entering the race for the Hoops striker.
Real Madrid fanzine Defensa Central has described French Eddie as ‘the gem of the European market’ and has gone on to state that Real Madrid’s sporting directors ‘Have offered’ Zinidine Zidane the chance to sign our French star.
“Real Madrid are aware of the great interest that the footballer has generated in England, mainly, and in Europe.
“According to what Defensa Central has learned, Zidane would not disapprove of the signing. The footballer is very young, 22-years-old and has a lot of projection.
“In addition, in France they see him as a footballer with the level to play in the national team and his price is not excessive, 25 million euros.”
Should this interest be correct then 25 million euro is a derisory bid, the Gem of Europe is hopefully going to sign a contract extension and win 10 in a row at Celtic, should teams come in for the Celtic talisman then 25 million euro won’t buy you his left boot.
With Arsenal, Everton and now Real being linked with Edouard, it is going to be a nervy summer for all of us desperate to see him stay the course and help us claim an unprecedented 10 in a row.
