Cristiano Ronaldo fulfilled his childhood dream by making a â‚¬ 94 million mega move from England to Spainâ€™s capital, Madrid.
The Portuguese play maker is now dreaming of having one of his former Manchester United teammates, Wayne Rooney, at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Over the weekend, Cristiano Ronaldo told English tabloid The Sun:
â€œWayne would be a sensation out here. I think we could do with Rooney to help us out. He would be brilliant if he came.
â€œThis [Real Madrid] is the ideal place for the worldâ€™s best players and thereâ€™s little doubt he is one of them.
â€œWayne has all the skill and determination you need to make a fine career here.
In fact, it is rare to have English players leaving the English Premier League for a new challenge in a different league.
The language, the culture, the type of football, and the atmosphere of the club as a family are major things that top English players would surely miss if they were to leave England and rather play in another top European league.
Cristiano Ronaldo is aware that a switch from Manchester United to Real Madrid may not be part of Wayne Rooneyâ€™s dreams since the star striker is very much attached to England.
â€œI realized it will take a lot for him to move from England. He loves the country, he loves Manchester United, and he is a Liverpool boy. And United is a good club for him.
But he concluded:
â€œBut you never know what could happen in the future.â€
What do you think about Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s desire and optimism to have Wayne Rooney at the Santiago Berabeu?
