Cristiano Ronaldo: The Real Madrid deal is historic

Cristiano Ronaldo finally made comments over his Real Madrid transfer; the 24-year-old show boy didn’t hide his happiness at this big-money move.

Ronaldo’s departure from Manchester United has spread irritation and disappointment among many Red Devils fans.

However, the Portuguese winger – who won several club and individual honors with Manchester United – thinks it is time for him to quit England.

“I have had my time at Man United. It’s time to look forward and £80m is quite a sum of money. This deal is historic.”

Ronaldo, who is still in the US for holidays, added:

“It’s flattering when two of the top teams in the world want you to play for them.

“Now I can look forward to Real Madrid and a new stage in my career. I learned of the deal here in LA and heard from my people that United had accepted.”

Manchester United’s Luis Nani also expressed his happiness for the Portugal captain.

“It’s a fantastic fee. It puts a new value on Ronaldo. We are talking about an excellent player, so I think it (the fee) is fair.”

“He deserves everything that has happened to him considering what he has accomplished in recent years.

“Real Madrid is a great club and I wish him luck.”

For Spain’s number one goalkeeper Iker Casillas, the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in Real Madrid is a celebration. Speaking to the Daily Star, Casillas declared:

“Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player [in the world], without doubt. I believe that if Real Madrid do the deal then he will help return the club to number one in the world,”

“Ronaldo will be welcomed by the dressing room.”

Meanwhile, Real Madrid’s former president Ramon Calderon reckons that this transfer success is mainly due to his efforts last year.

“It was easy. We agreed everything and he decided to come,” Calderon stated regarding the secret agreement that was in place between Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid.

“Let’s say it was a gentleman’s agreement.

“Let’s say that everyone involved in the operation agreed to do it this season. That is what I can say. It has happened now; it was a bit early last season.”

      Cristiano tu es ou molhor do moundo. Don’t listen to these jealous people, you will just prove them wrong and carry on being the champ that you are. As a big fan I believe that you will do well and you do portugal proud, especially Madeira. From your Madeirian fan.

      man, almost every single one of you is stupid.. why would he stay at manutd? he won all he can there and he cant win any more cause sir alex is losing his mind and wont quit.. hes a power control freak and loves it. he wont let manuts go without being forced.. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT SIR ALEX BLEW THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL.. ronaldo plays winger not middle up front striker.. andteves and berbatov shouldve started not park and evra.. if any other coach came to manutd im sure ronaldo would stay.. even if his enemy jose mourinho came, i think ronaldo would stay.. sir alex is gettting way too old to lead a club and his age affect his decision making.. anyways,NEXT YEAR REAL MADRID WILL WIN E V E R Y T H I N G ! ! ! ! ! ronaldo, kaka, villa, sergio ramos, and the best goalie in the world with cassilas???? it cant get any better… messi and all the midgets at barcelona will FAIL ALL THE WAY!!!!! just wait and see..
