The transfer saga will surely finish at the end of this month. Cristiano Ronaldo expressed his desire to leave World Champions Manchester United, so Ferguson â€“ who feels itâ€™s time to let Ronaldo leave â€“ gave the go-ahead for Real Madrid to speak with his ace.
The Red Devils eventually had to succumb to Real Madridâ€™s mega bid to lure their number 7 star winger.
Florentino Perez succeeded in bringing Brazilian Superstar Ricardo Kaka in his club. Now the famous White House president is expected to tie things up by the end of June by completing the transfer of the World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo.
Reports suggest that this news is by no means a rumor; a statement coming out from the Red Devilsâ€™ side tells:
“Manchester United have received a world-record, unconditional offer of Â£80million for Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.
“At Cristiano’s request – who has again expressed his desire to leave – and after discussion with the player’s representatives, United have agreed to give Real Madrid permission to talk to the player.
“Matters are expected to be concluded by June 30. The club will not comment until further notice.”
Should the transfer be made (which is said to cost about â‚¬ 94 million), it will be the most lucrative ever transfer in the world of football. French living legend Zinedine Zidane currently holds the record with his â‚¬ 73 million transfer deal from Juventus to Real Madrid, while Kaka comes second.
Cristiano Ronaldo, the perfect business product
Real Madridâ€™s general director Jorge Valdano yesterday revealed that the Spanish giants were in negotiations with Manchester United over the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo. Jorge Valdano also described the Portuguese player as an excellent business product.
“According to the information we have managed to obtain, he is an excellent professional. You don’t get the player’s body he has, which is a footballing advertisement, without working a great deal.
“Another thing is that his reputation as an officially good-looking guy, and a social or advertising model, blurs his image a bit. He is a great footballer.”
The good news for Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo â€“ who missed Portugalâ€™s goalless draw to Estonia â€“ is that the 24-year-old will not be requiring a hernia operation.
English media The Mirror reports that Real Madrid sent a doctor to test Ronaldo who is in holiday in Los Angeles.
Well, Cristiano Ronaldo will certainly become a Galactico this summer. The grown kid from Madeira may have the chance to fulfill his childhood dream by joining Real Madrid.
Moreover, his said-to-be move to Los Blancos comes at a renaissance time for the Spanish Giants led by the Supremo, Florentino Perez.
