Subject: Portillo given Club Brugge chance

Real Madrid striker Javier Portillo is to spend the 2005/06 campaign
on loan at Belgian champions Club Brugge.

Italian spell
The 23-year-old has had limited first-team opportunities at the
Santiago Bernabéu and, despite the departure of Michael Owen, was
behind Ronaldo, Robinho, Raúl González and Julio Baptista in the
Madrid pecking order. Last season, Portillo was farmed out to
Fiorentina where he scored once in eleven games before returning to
Madrid in the January transfer window. Portillo's loan agreement
includes a clause preventing him from playing against Madrid should
Brugge meet the Spanish side in the Champions League.

Youth success
Portillo holds Madrid's youth academy scoring record, having hit more
than 700 goals at various levels before reaching the first team in
October 2002. "He wants to play, and with us he will certainly get
that chance," said Club Brugge sporting director Marc Degryse, whose
side face Juventus, Rapid Wien and Bayern München in the Champions
League group stage.

**********************************

I don't know if this will be a success, but it's always nice to see
that this major talent wanted to join our small club compared to Real
Madrid :p

Now Manuel can start dressing in blue and black ;)
