Danilo Trying To Cope With Media Pressure At Madrid

“For instance, at Santos one of my coaches was Muricy Ramalho, who could get the best out of me and he was a player and understand the footballers”.But he could well have been lining up alongside Cristiano Ronaldo instead, only for Real Madrid to pull the plug on the transfer right at the end.The Brazilian duo had the chance to share a team again in the summer of 2015 when Danilo attracted the attention of Barcelona.However, Real Madrid won the race after agreeing to pay Porto around €31.5m (£27.7m, $35.1m) for his services.After the deal which would have seen the 25-year-old move from South America to the Spanish capital and would have seen the recent La Liga landscape pan out much differently since the deal fell through, Barca swooped in to take the highly sought after attacker.”When I joined Real Madrid two years ago I had many offers on the table but when I knew Real Madrid were interested I chose to join them”. But he respected [my decision to join Real Madrid] a lot because he knows it was a very personal decision, about my feelings.”The media pressure is the largest in the world, without doubt”, Danilo told SporTV. Every small mistake can become very big and of course any good thing you do can become big as well. “I can not wait to start the new season because I really want to make history”, he added.
