Getafe keeper Abbondanzieri reveals Real Madrid offer

Getafe goalkeeper Roberto Abbondanzieri has revealed he could have joined Real Madrid this summer.

The Argentine has been a Liga revelation since his late career move to Spain and was a target for Real earlier this summer as they sought cover for Iker Casillas.

"I never wanted to leave Getafe," said Abbondanzieri. "But it is true that Madrid were interested.

"Things were discussed, but we never went as far as a concrete proposal."
