Real Madrid chief can't guarantee Van der Vaart minutes

Real Madrid sports chief Miguel Pardeza says Rafael van der Vaart is only still with the club because no suitable offers arrived. Pardeza couldn't guarantee coach Manuel Pellegrini using Van der Vaart this season, saying: "He's here because no-one made a bid that was suitable to the parties involved.

"True, he was told that it would be very difficult for him to count on minutes, but the market has made its own decision."
