Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has given up on trying to sign Argentinean midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme, currently at Villareal. Calderon said: “He is a great player but he is not part of our plans.” El Mundo Deportivo newspaper writes that the player’s agents offered him to Real Madrid, who are looking for a great signing after failing to get their hands on Kaka. The merengues, are actually still trying to sign Riquelme, as manager Schuster is a big fan of his, and also because he does not have much faith in young midfielder Gago. Should the club fail to sign Riquelme, Schuster will most likely play Guti in the central midfielder role.
