Real Madrid winger Luis Figo concedes his dream of playing in the Premiership may not be realised. Figo has 18 months remaining on his current
contract with the Spanish giants but the club have yet to indicate whether or not there will be a fresh offer on the table.
The Portuguese winger will be 33 next summer and Madrid, conscious of the player's vast wages, may want to spend the money on fresh talent. When the
subject of him leaving the Bernabeu has been discussed in the past, Figo has often dropped hints that the Premiership would be his preferred
But he accepts that a move to England is not certain to materialise.
i think at the minute, real are happy to have him, hes getting them money cos of his name in football, every1 has heard of figo. i think they want
joaquin though, if they get him, real have proved they will get rid of people without hesitating, look at del bosque and hierro
if he was to go at the end of this season, i can see him ending up there (in england)
Unless he moves in the summer i cant see it happening. He will be 34 and who would want to pay a huge transfer fee for him at that age? let alone huge
wages. And it will be even worse in 18 months if he waits, unless he would be prepared to take 20 grand a week in wages and play for someone like
Bolton i can't see it happening.
