Ettore Messina"We will unveil the plan for the basketball section of the club at the end of the week". That was the final quote of Jorge Valdano, the Real Madrid's General Madrid to TVE channel when asked about the future of the team.

As reports, Messina has set some targets and questions to Real Madrid's board and is waiting for the club's response. Messina is definitely not a done deal at this point for Real Madrid is it would require a lot of investment to realise the project that Messina has in mind.
It is now up to Real Madrid's new president Florentino Perez to splash the money required to lure Messina in Madrid, including the 1 year compensation for their current coach Plaza as he has a valid contract until the summer of 2010.
In the meantime, an interest of Olympiacos in Messina should not be ruled out lightly.
