[River Plate confirm Real Madrid interest in Exequiel Palacios] I wrote to [Madrid president] Florentino Perez a few days ago to thank him for having us at the Bernabeu

We are not currently talking about Palacios but about 20 days ago [Madrid director Emilio] Butragueno spoke to Enzo Francescoli about the player, but with a view to continuing negotiations later

The economic differences between Real Madrid and River are very large. It’s very difficult to retain a player, but history tells us that the player sees a future opportunity and we can’t cut his career.

The club can’t be closed and must open themselves up to negotiation. That a player from River goes to Madrid is also prestigious for River

[Asked if Palacios is ready to play for Madrid] He’s at a great level, but I think it would be good to play for one more year in Argentina. However, that is not my decision. We will negotiate, Madrid know that.

He is very young but he is very serious, and seems older than he is. A very complete player. If they really love him, the move would be ideal for both the player and Real Madrid

[River president D’Onofrio sees ‘no reasons’ for stadium closure] There are no reasons for the River stadium to be closed tomorrow. I can assure you that River is not responsible. It’s a shame that we had to go through this. River said that we cannot play against a team that is going through an understandable psychological situation. We agreed with Daniel

[The 69-year-old was also appologetic to the supporters who made the trip to the match, only to have their plans ruined by the violence outside the stadium] I feel bad, frustrated, tired. I apologise to the fans. My daughter lives in Italy, I have two granddaughters, they arrived today and fly back tomorrow. I have this situation at home, imagine all the ones that came from all over the country. I said to CONMEBOL from the start that we could not play today. I’m not going to give up. I don’t want to win this way

[What is more, the all-action midfielder could prove the bargain of the transfer window. His transfer buyout fee is set at a measly €15 million (£13.3m/$16.4m), small change for the likes of Madrid and Inter] Our intention was to try and raise it, but when the player and his agent do not want to accept a higher clause we can’t do anything
