It has been argued across Madrid that the possible capture of Cristiano Ronaldo from Man Utd will be a step back for the Real, in their quest to be European Champions for the tenth time.
For if Real do capture Ronaldo, the funds that will be left to strengthen the rest of the team is an interesting moot point. For it may even mean Madrid sacrificing other quality players such as Sneijder, Ramos or Robinho.
Football is an unpredictable game and this is why it is loved throughout the world. Because even in signing the best player on the planet, nothing is guaranteed. Football is a team game and Madrid may struggle if to get this latest Galactico, they end up without the strength in depth to really challenge the best teams in Europe.
