A Real Madrid executive was also quoted by the press saying :

“The transfer market has turned the creative midfielders into an extinct species. The very few who are left are either highly valuable or impossible to prise away from their clubs.
“We’re not signing him just for the sake of signing him. I wish there were more alternatives to Xabi, but the market does not offer any.”
