Gremio reject Real Madrid's Mario bid

Gremio director Paulo Pelaipe has revealed that Real Madrid and CSKA Moscow have both had offers for 21-year-old defender Mario Fernandes turned down by the club.

Mario has impressed at right-back for Gremio since moving from Sao Caetano two years ago and his performances have not gone unnoticed, with a host of European clubs linked with his signature.
Bids from Moscow and Madrid for the young Brazilian have now been confirmed, but Pelaipe said Gremio's president rejected them both as the club is holding out for a fee "in the region of €20 million".
"Real Madrid and CSKA Moscow have made offers for Mario Fernandes in the past couple of days. However, club president Paulo Odone has rejected the bids as they didn't match our valuation of the player," Pelaipe told Radio Gaucha.
"Gremio are of the opinion that the player should stay put for at least another season in order to further develop. Gremio would only consider selling him now if an offer in the region of €20 million comes in."
Mario, who was called up to the Selecao squad for the Superclasico de las Americas against Argentina in September but played no part in the games, is also comfortable playing at centre-back.
