Manchester Unitedâ€™s Portuguese megastar Cristiano Ronaldo has not made any comments yet about Dr. Sulaiman Al Fahimâ€™s interest in him.
The number 7 ace is presently concentrating on his fitness as he intends to be back on the field of play on September 27 for the league game against Bolton Wanderers.
Despite all what happened in the just-ended transfer saga, Ronaldo dismissed suppositions that he might not perform at his best for the double title winners.
Now, it is clear that the Star winger would not love to be asked about his future with Manchester United so as not to be distracted in any way.
Real Madrid seems to have abandoned their pursuit for the European Player of the Year and it is only at the end of this season perhaps, that the Spanish champions will engage again in a war against Manchester for the signature of Ronaldo.
However, for the Red Devilâ€™s local rivals Manchester City, the matter is different. The clubâ€™s owner Dr. Sulaiman Al Fahim did not bother to express his desire to buy Cristiano in the January transfer window, whereas everyone knows very well how irritated were Alex Ferguson and David Gill after Madrid tried to get their number 7 star away from Old Trafford.
During the transfer saga earlier this summer, the transfer price asked by Manchester United â€“ when the club looked a little bit more willing to sell uncommitted Ronaldo â€“ was a major problem.
Ronaldo was set to quit Old Trafford but it remained for Madrid to raise the amount of their bid. The Spanish club refused to do so, and after all the disputes, Ronaldo finally decided to stay for one more year at the Theatre of Dreams.
Now, the case is completely different. One on side, there is Cristiano Ronaldo who publicly showed his desire to join the most glamorous team in Europe and enjoy a whole lot of riches. On the other, there is Dr. Sulaiman Al Fahim who is now inviting Ronaldo to test his own feelings.
The Manchester City owner said that if Ronaldo was serious about wanting to be in the best club on earth where money flows like rain, then he should prove it by signing for the Sky Blues in January.
Cristiano Ronaldo will be in the record books should he quit Manchester United for archrivals Manchester City at the price of 135 million pounds.
Most big players will be delighted to make such a lucrative move and above all, become part of a new era at a club.
Dr. Sulaiman Al Fahimâ€™s challenge is certainly the best thing to test Ronaldoâ€™s feelings. Is he going to remain loyal to the Reds for at least a year or will he rather take this great opportunity of becoming the worldâ€™s richest player by signing for the Sky Blues?
Dr Sulaimanâ€™s offer for Ronaldo is like a train that could pass and never come again, as Ronaldo is not Cityâ€™s sole target. There are other big players on the list such as Messi, Ronaldinho, and Kaka.
If Ronaldo refuses to join City in January, it will show how much this successful player knows how to take his own decisions.
