It seems like Real Madrid is abandoning the fight to have Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo.
Earlier in May, realistic Bernd Schuster stated that football was not a one-man game and that therefore, chasing the Portuguese star was in a sense ridiculous.
In an interview with Sky News this week, the coach made a joke saying he was aware that Real Madrid was seriously hunting for a player whom he did not even remember the name very well.
What a funny joke it was! On one hand, it shows how much Bernd Schuster has always advised the Spanish Champions to concentrate on signing other footballers. Now, it has been declared that Real Madrid was going to make a more valuable bid for Van der Vaart. Schuster is a great admirer of the Dutch international and believes his squad is in need of his services. Fortsätt läsa Fergie about to win the game
Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster has admitted the Spanish giants have prepared a plan B for Ronaldoâ€™s transfer. He said the club was interested in signing a wonderful player like Ronaldo but he added that the Portuguese winger still seemed undecided. Madrid now remains uncertain about a move for Man Unitedâ€™s number 7 this summer.
As the transfer window it is coming to an end in around a month, the club is consequently considering other options. Bern Schuster revealed his frustration over the fact that Real Madrid has made no major signing. He stated that the Spanish giants were in a position where it could be too late for them to get the targeted attacking players they want such as Cesc Fabregas.

It has been reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has met Italian model Letizia Filippi on several occasions and that he was immediately hooked. She delivered a â€˜gaze that melted him like an icicle in the sunâ€™ one Italian paper reports.
Some even say sheâ€™s the cause of the recent break up with Nereida Gallardo.
Letizia, now 30, lives in Rome and her career took off when she finished third in Miss Italia 1994. After that she has worked in TV and has appeared on Italian TV show Buona Domenica (â€˜The Good Sundayâ€™).
Letizia in an interview by Londonâ€™s Daily Mail talked about what sheâ€™s looking for in a man:
â€He must make me feel important,â€ and she continues, Fortsätt läsa Is Letizia Filippi random play or Cristianoâ€™s girlfriend of choice?
Did Ronaldo react too harshly towards his former girlfriend Nereida Gallardo when he broke up with her for good?
The Spanish model was one of the numerous girls Ronaldo has dated who had a big impact on Ronaldoâ€™s private and professional life.
According to rumours, Ronaldoâ€™s friends and family appreciated Nereida unlike Mercedes Romero â€“ whom Ronaldo once planed to marry.
In terms of devotion, she certainly gave 100% of herself to Cristiano as she even went on to tattoo â€œCR7â€ on the inside of her wrist to honour her boyfriendâ€™s name and lucky number.
Moreover, it is believed that she never duped Ronaldo during their relationship.
For those of you who are unaware of Nereidaâ€™s secret, the first question is probably, â€˜Why did Ronaldo break up with such an angel?â€™ Fortsätt läsa Nereida Gallardo; Dumped and Broken
This summer is certainly Alex Fergusonâ€™s toughest moment in his career. In his entire 21 years as the manager of Manchester United, the best thing â€“ arguably â€“ that has ever happened to him was the arrival of two Portuguese: Carlos Queiros and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Since the death of his father in 2005, Ronaldo adopted the former Portuguese boss as his new daddy. And whether it is a coincidence or not, it was only then that Man Unitedâ€™s number 7 rose, transforming his youth talent into a professional footballer performance â€“ scoring in the process 23 goals in the 2006/07 season and 42 last season.
If Carlos Queiros indeed played a major role in inspiring and guiding the winger to these prowesses, it is quite understandable that Ronaldo might see no reason why he should stay at Old Trafford to honour his contract since Queiros himself is no more in England. Fortsätt läsa Queiros left, why not Ronaldo?
There is more to Ronaldo’s transfer than his unique decision of going to Madrid. Whether the truth is that Alex Ferguson wants to give up resisting Calderon’s Real or not, the manager has revealed he will consent on letting Ronaldo leave for Spain, if the player really insists on quitting England.
However, as he previously stated in a press conference on Monday, Alex again underlined his opinion that the 23-year-old superstar will be doing the worst mistake of his career if he joins the Spanish Champions.
Supported by Arsene Wenger who secretly criticised Real Madrid’s attitude in this saga, Ferguson felt no shame to reveal his thoughts about Ronaldo’s future. He stated that Portuguese winger might regret his decision of leaving Old Trafford for the Bernabeu in one or two years time if he indeed joins Madrid. Fortsätt läsa Ronaldo must think twice
People have been waiting tiredly to know where and how the saga will conclude. If they are running out of patience to see in which club Ronaldo will end up and how things will turn out for him next season, then let them ask God and he will reveal everything to them.
The first thing one may ask is, â€˜Where is God and who is he?â€™
Well, you need not to search too far, swim the rivers, climb the mountains, or reach the skies; God is right here, on earth and it is none other than Cristiano Ronaldo, the master of his own self. Fortsätt läsa Ronaldoâ€™s futureâ€¦ only God knows
The opposition featuring Real Madridâ€™s Calderon and Manchester Unitedâ€™s Alex Ferguson is a hot battle made of two men claiming to be tranquil and relax. Earlier last week, Ramon Calderonâ€™s comments on the transfer saga came at the delight of the clubâ€™s board. The president affirmed that Ronaldoâ€™s move would be completed in two weeks.
He stated that the club has a healthy budget that would prevent Real Madrid from a financial crisis should they even splash 85 million Euro on the Portuguese playmaker.
In the meantime, far away in South Africa where Man United travelled for their pre-season tour, Ferguson assured that Cristiano Ronaldo would be at Old Trafford next season. The manager confirmed he had met with Ronaldo in Lisbon on Monday, adding that everything went well though they both expressed their feelings as regards to the transfer. However, with his calm and comfortable attitude, was Fergie only trying to create impressions?

Cristiano Ronaldo has broken up his relationship with Nereida Gallardo! â€¦at least, this is what rumours claim.
It is believed that the Portuguese star’s holiday trip in Sardinia with the model is the last he will ever have with her. Meanwhile, in an interview with a Spanish journalist, Nereida denied the fact that Ronaldo had â€œdumpedâ€ her.
She said that her boyfriend had phoned her in the morning and that he sounded sweet and kind as always. She added that he even told her the three words â€˜I love youâ€™ and that she replied the same to him.
