    Looks like Solari's been shipped off to Milan to play for Inter, according to Marca, as said here on ESPN Soccernet:

    I liked Solari, and really thought he'd get more games now that Figo's contract is almost done. Sad to see him go.
    Article also says something about a loan move for Walter Samuel to!?

    He could have grown into one of the best left wingers if he was given opportunities. I am really sad to see him go and angry to see that years and years of patience have not given him what he expected and longed for; opportunities in the first team to should what he can do. But we have to remember the CL final where Zidane scored that incredible goal 'cause he iniciated that goal, lol.

    Let's put Raul there... i think he played his best durring last season in that position. And, if he can't score anything from that position, he gets the boot. It's his last chance to prove himself before being benched.

    Solari passed his medical for Inter. Real Madrid will receive nothing from Inter for his transfer according to AS. :mad: :(

    Good luck to him in Milan. He was a model professional at Real Madrid and I'll miss him. Hopefully at Inter he can play his way into the squad for the world cup next year. He deserves it.

    He's a great player and would have probably starting on any other team in Europe. I thought he was a great players coming off the bench for you guys, you could tell how the tempo of the game would change once he came in, he had great creativity and skill, its a bad loss for you guys.

    yeah, its gonna be a sore loss, he was a spark off the bench just like Guti, and if not for some of the blindness in the coaching staff (cough* zizou not as good, *cough *cough) guys like solari and guti would start

    Solari was a class act. Great coming off the bench. Fans really liked him. Unfortunately the few opportunities he was given as a starter were probably some his poorest performances. Still, at 27 or 28 years old (I think), you can't blame the guy for looking for minutes so he can have a shot at playing in WC2006.

    Gracias Indiecito. Mucha suerte.

    ¡Hala Madrid!

    I forget what the occasion was (maybe it was the same time last year, when we all thought it would make most sense for him to leave) when the same emotions came out. Solari is one of my favorite players to wear the white shirt, because he plays with the skill and speed of a world-class player, yet puts in the effort and defensive hustle of a player clamoring to make a team. He never complained about his underutilization, never made a big deal about playing time, and stuck with Real Madrid much longer than any of us could have asked. Solari will get a hero's welcome if he ever sets foot in the Bernebau again.

    Solari was one of my favorite players, so I'm sad to see him go. However, you can't blame him for leaving- it's a shame Real Madrid didn't give him more playing time. It's also pretty stupid for Real to have allowed this clause in his contract to have been activated by not giving him enough playing time, so they get nothing for a great player.

    Solari is a class act & a total professional. He has always been one of my favorite players. I really wish Luxa had played him in the DM position those times he used Celades.

    i also agree solari had served the club in best way possible without ever moaning for first team place. coming on wen asked to and doin fantastic job all the time. every true madrid fan wud hv a special place for him in their hearts.

    i am very sad to see him go but am also pleased for him that he'll get the playing time on field. however i would like to see him return to bernabau one day if not as player maybe as a coach or some official in any way possible but back to club to whom he served so loyally.

    to Solari!!!

    yeah well chinky solari is an example of Real's largest flaw, the inability to play as starters non-big name guys. solari patiently waited for years to crack the first team on a regular basis and obviously had the skill to do so. I hope guys like Guti and Solari follow Morientes' example and get the hell out of madrid if they don't get time. it makes me angry to lost players like that, but 1) its a world cup year and people need to have good seasons and 2) guti, morientes and solari are peaking in their careers soon and need to play whether at the bernabe or elsewhere. I wish these guys the best of luck (especially morientes, go l'pool) and just hope that they don't come back to bite us in europe.

    I don't know that this was the case with Solari. His performances off the bench were a million times beter than when he started. Having said that, I agree that the guy worked his ass off to get more minutes.

    Hala Madrid

    Well, except for that whole "clause in the contract allowing him to leave on a free if he doesn't play more" thing. ;)

    But other than that, no he didn't make a big deal out of his lack of PT.

    solari is a difficult one. realisticaly he is never going to play much so no point in keeping him
    he was a gr8 substtitute but only an average starter
    many players can come on after 70/80 min and look good because they wer fresh. santi never looked as good from the start.
    having said that i think he is a superb talent and it is a shame he has 2 go

    But you never read that Solari was complaining to the media/ throwing tantrums in practice/ refusing to honor his commitments to the team over playing time.

    I still think he should've started like every 1 out of 3 games, or at least against Getafe and Levante, etc, so that he gets his contract fulfilled.

    So...we start buying "hard workers", "team players"....and Solari goes to Inter, for free. Solari, who with his hard work and great play (in few minutes), had become one of the idols of the Bernabeu. I don't know, I don't like it.
