Biography (wiki)

Fernando Rubén Gago (Spanish pronunciation: ; born 10 April 1986) is an Argentine footballer who plays for Vélez Sarsfield as a defensive midfielder and deep-lying playmaker. He is also a former Argentina national team player.

A full international since 2007, Gago has represented Argentina at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and at the Copa América in 2007, 2011, 2015, as well as winning a gold medal at the 2008 Olympics.

Gago came from the youth divisions of Boca Juniors, made his professional debut with Boca in the 1–0 victory over Quilmes on 5 December 2004. Despite his youth, he quickly became an essential part of the Boca midfield, attracting interest from European clubs such as Real Madrid and Barcelona.

On 15 November 2006, Real Madrid President confirmed the signings of Gago, as well as compatriot Gonzalo Higuaín of River Plate, as part of his policy to sign younger players to gradually replace the older stars in the squad. However, news of Higuaín's departure to Madrid was premature, as River Plate rejected a €10 million bid for the striker, stating they would prefer him to remain until at least June 2007. During the 2006 South American transfer saga, Gago's name was also linked with a move to Milan. Ariedo Braida, however, Milan's top transfer guru, was quoted as saying, "They only want to go to Madrid." The transfer was finally agreed on 19 December 2006 for €20.4 million. Following the move, he was impressive in the defensive midfield position, which led to comparisons to former Argentina "number 5" Fernando Redondo from Jorge Valdano and many other pundits.
