'FISHING' IN MADRID

20 Jun 2006
Every time that president Lendoiro visits Madrid, the speculation about new incorporations starts to flow out. Officially Depor's president is attending to the capital in order to participate in a meeting that promotes the relationships with Japan, although that it was also admitted by the club official's website that the visit will be very useful to secure the arrival of Bodipo to Deportivo.

The meeting with Javier Tebas (Alav?s' vice-president) and Javi Gonz??lez (Bodipo's agent) is crucial and will probably decide the future of Bodipo. All appoints that the deal will be closed soon. Lendoiro will spend the next two days in Madrid and it's speculated that he will also try to negotiate other incorporations.

Sportpaper Marca wrote that one of this options is Fabi??n Estoyanoff (23), his agent, Jos? Luis Zalazar, is in Madrid and it seems that Lendoiro is trying to close a loan spell with Valencia. Quique Sanch?z Flores doesn't count with the player for the next season and his incorporation will be useful in order to cover the right wing, a position that Caparr??s needs to cover since Pablo Alvarez is injured until December.

Another negotiation that could accelerate its rhythm is the one for Jordi L??pez (25). The Valencian player arrived to Madrid yesterday after expending his vacations in Mexico. Newspaper La Opini??n a Coru?a wrote yesterday that Lendorio called Ra??l Verd?? (Jordi's agent) before leaving to Madrid, the reason was to manifest that the price asked by Sevilla for the midfielder is too 'exaggerated.' According to the same source, Verd?? will try to talk with Sevilla's officials in order to reduce the amount of the possible transfer. A meeting with Jordi in Madrid could be also an strategy to put some pressure to Sevilla.

It should be also expected that Lendoiro would try to approach to the candidates competing for Real Madrid's presidency. Targets like De La Red, Jurado and Soldado continues to be in Lendoiro's agenda. But any official negotiation will have to wait until July 2nd, the day in which the elections in the Madrilian club will take place.
