Real Madrid’s president Calderon gave an interview yesterday where he admits that they have given up the hunt on Cristiano Ronaldo.
”We are not going to start a conflict,” Calderon said. ”You can’t buy what the owner doesn’t want to sell. We have not interfered with United’s contract agreement with Cristiano Ronaldo. We’re sorry that United â€“ a club with which we have an excellent relationship â€“ is annoyed with us because Real Madrid have nothing to do with that aspect.
”I want to clear this up with him and assure him we are not going to influence any player to break a contractual relationship. We are not going to start a conflict. If a club doesn’t want to sell a player, why would we insist that they do sell him?”
Topless pictures of Nereida Gallardo, Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend, have leaked out in brittish press. The Sun newspaper published photos of her together with two friends, semi-naked at a nightclub toilet.
Will this effect Ronaldo’s preparation for the Euro 2008?
Sir Alex Ferguson have decided to do whatever he can to have Ronaldo staying with Manchester United. Therefore Fergie will fly to Geneva next week to have a face-to-face talk with Ronaldo while Portugal is preparing for the EURO 2008.
It’s clear that Ferguson is a bit worried to loose his greatest player to the Spanish giant Real Madrid. Could a raise of his salary of Â£120,000 a week be the recipe?
It’s not only football in Cristiano Ronaldos head these days. Now he’s planning to have his girlfriend, the spanish model Nereida Gallardo, moving in to his 4millionÂ£ house in Alderly Edge, Cheshire.
He has already bought her a exclusive Mercedes car for 28,000Â£.
Is Nereida good for Ronaldo? Let us know what you think.
Speculations about Ronaldo’s future is still out there. Cristiano Ronaldo who has joined up with the rest of the Portugal squad at their training camp, preparing for Euro 2008, once again speaks out about the rumours:
”What the press speculate about goes over my head,” Ronaldo said. ”I have already been used to it for the past two years.
”I am calm. Everything’s clear and I will repeat it once again so that the whole world understands: there will be news in two or three weeks.
”At the moment I am here, I am going to give my best and do the best possible in the European Championships.”
Yesterday Cristiano Ronaldo was named captain by Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari when he was handed former captain Luis Figo’s number 7 shirt.
Scolari choosed among four former captains who are in the squad, Nuno Gomes, Petit, Simao and Ricardo Carvalho.
A Champions League final that had everything, what a drama. As many of you believed Cristiano Ronaldo scored, he did 1-0 with a nice header. Chelsea came back and equalized. The match went to extra time but without any goals the penalty-shootout was a fact.
Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up and was ready to take his penalty and he…..missed. What looked so good suddenly turned out to a nightmare for the superstar. Which soccer betting fans could have predicted that?
”I don’t know what to say, I thought we would lose when I missed”
But after that both Terry and Anelka missed their penalties for Chelsea and Manchester United won the title, despite Ronaldo’s miss.
”I thought it would be the worst day of my life, but the lads believed and we won it even despite my miss. I’m very proud of them. The penalties are a lottery. I think we deserved it because we played better in the whole game.
”Now it’s the happiest day of my life,”
Fans who have been worried about a Ronaldo transfer to Real Madrid can now be calm. In a radio interview with Manchester Uniteds chief executive, David Gill says:
”Heâ€™s got four more years with us, has been with us for five and weâ€™re sure heâ€™ll be with us for many years to come,” Gill told BBC Radio 5 Live.
”Weâ€™re keeping him. Weâ€™ve no intention of letting him go and will make sure heâ€™s happy. Heâ€™s going nowhere.”
”Heâ€™s at a great club, winning trophies, and enjoys it immensely here, so why would he want to leave?” he said.
