According to spanish press, Chivu agent Becali is asking for more money to sign with Real Madrid, threatening to leave Chivu with Roma and to set him free on the transfer market next year: "If Real accepted the 18 million euro request from Roma, then they should accept the players' request, the real offer is much lower that 5 million per year as we read on some papers. We can stay another year with Roma". Inter are off the negotiation only officially, they are still relying on Becali moves. Calderon of Real Madrid confirmed that: "There are different point of views on his salary". As Roma manager Daniel Pradè said: "The negotiation is stuck, we are waiting, Chivu remaining anothe year is an option".
