Real Madrid chief: We could've signed Barcelona's Messi, Dos Santos

Real Madrid football chief Miguel Angel Portugal has revealed they were beaten by Barcelona for both Lionel Messi and Giovani dos Santos.

He told Radio Marca: "When Giovani was 14 years old, we had the possibility of signing him. Just as we did with Messi.

"It's disappointing, but we have never spent transfer fees on the juniors."
