THE INTEREST IN DANI AQUINO CONTINUES

23 May 2008
According to AS, Lendoiro will continue insisting for Dani Aquino, the Real Murcia's striker for whom a first offer was already rejected. Meanwhile, the same paper appoints that Deportivo is interested in Memeth Aurelio, a Brazilian defensive midfielder that's currently playing the UEFA EURO 2008 with Turkey.

On the past week it was informed that Deportivo presented an offer for Daniel Aquino (17), a Murcian striker that impressed on the last season during his debut at Primera Divisi�n. Apparently president Lendoiro offered �5 million plus the loan of one player (Adri�n L�pez, Aythami Artiles or Momo). But sportpaper AS reported that Real Murcia rejected the proposition.

Now the same AS is affirming that Lendoiro won't give up in the quest to sign this young talent. In fact, AS talked with Fabril's defender David Rochela about the skills of Aquino. Both youngsters were team mates in Spain's U-17 squad during last year's World Cup played in Korea .

Rochela appointed that Aquino is promising to be an important player in the future "He has the conditions to be a star and is following the right way. If he isn't stuck and everything goes normal, I'm sure Aquino will give a lot to talk. Bojan, Camacho and Fran Merida are the most known players of my generation. He has played more time at Primera than we would thought and he did a good job. He has a lot of future."

Meanwhile, the same sportpaper AS appoints that Deportivo is interested in Marco Aurelio Brito dos Prazeres 'Mehmet Aurelio' (30). This is a Brazilian defensive midfielder that's currently playing the UEFA EURO 2008 with Turkey. The source of the news is the agent of the player, Bayram Tutumlu.

Tutumlu told to AS that Depor has asked him about the situation of the midfielder "Deportivo has asked me about Memeth Aurelio, the Brazilian that we naturalised and that's a key in the national team. Also some English clubs like Blackburn Rovers. He's an extraordinary player and is ending his contract with Fenerbah�e. He didn't play in the quarterfinals for suspension, but he will be on for the semi-finals. Ballack won't have a easy job with Mehmet in front of him, he's the leader."
