Interesting. Might be nearly 31 but still a class act for sure and well worth someone popping in a sneaky bid there.

I wonder if it has anything to do with Spanish football fan's mentality? I remember reading in Four Four Two in the Salgado column that in Spain, anyone over 30 is considered past it. Maybe Madrid weren't showing him enough respect in his contract extension? He's still got a few years in him, wouldn't even be surprised if someone like Mancini makes a last ditch bid for him.
