The former Real Madrid midfielder Esteban Granero has said that has no regrets about leaving the Santiago Bernebeu for the Loftus Road. QPR managed to secure his signature of one of the highly rated midfield players in the world. Esteban Granero has been thought of as the replacement for Kaka at the Santiago Bernabeu.
However, he has failed to get many first-team opportunities due to the presence of many players ahead of him in the pecking order. The arrival of Luka Modric will have once again hurt the number of first-team opportunities for the Argentine. As a result, he believes he has taken a good decision in leaving Real Madrid for QPR on the final day of the transfer window – though he was believed to have been close to a move to Anfield according to Liverpool FC News.
It is thought that the London club have managed to secure the services of the 25-year-old for around a £ 9 million. He has signed a four-year contract with the club. He has said that QPR have the ability to get into the top half of the Premier league table. QPR struggled with relation throughout last season, but they are not expected to be in the relegation trouble this time around as well due to the significant quality of players brought in the transfer window.
“It wasn’t a hard decision to come here. I’m hungry and here I will be able to grow as a player. Real Madrid is a great club, I have played there since I was eight. I spent three years in the first team and I will always be thankful to them. But it was time to change and the best way to do that was join QPR. Since two weeks ago my thoughts are here and I don’t miss anything about Real. I wanted to be a part of QPR. I’m sure the project here will be good for me, and I’ll be good for QPR,” Granero told reporters.
