Former Manchester United playmaker Cristiano Ronaldo wants Wayne Rooney to join him at Real Madrid for the pair to enjoy success in La Liga like in any other competition.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney made a perfect match during the Portugueseâ€™s spell at Manchester United; for most defenders, it was impossible to try and contain both without being deceived by the duoâ€™s admirable abilities.
After Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United for Real Madrid, many predicted and even wished that the former number 7 player would flop in La Liga.
So far though, Cristiano Ronaldo is proving those people wrong. Despite missing almost two months of action for Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo remains Los Blancosâ€™ most dangerous player on the pitch.
Cristiano Ronaldo has already netted thirteen times in competitive matches for Real Madrid with seven of those goals being scored in 8 La Liga appearances only.
Now the Portuguese star â€“ who realized his childhood dream by joining the Spanish giants in July 2009 â€“ is looking ahead for a bright future with Real Madrid.
The clubâ€™s president, Florentino Perez, spent an astronomical amount of money last summer to land the services of players such as Kaka, Xabi Alonso, Karim Benzema, and Cristiano Ronaldo himself.
Still, Los Blancos are not done yet on the market. Reports suggest that Florentino Perez is already making a list of players to buy which includes Atletico Madridâ€™s ace Sergio Aguero.
Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s former teammate at Manchester United, Wayne Rooney, is also part of the list. But this inclusion by Florentino Perez is mostly backed by the man himself, Cristiano Ronaldo.
In a statement to the press, the Portuguese winger, who winked at Portugalâ€™s bench during Rooneyâ€™s dismissal in the quarter-finals of the 2006 World Cup, gladly spoke about Wayne Rooneyâ€™s potential:
â€œHe can be a spectacle and a sensation at Real Madrid. He has all the qualities to succeed in La Liga.â€
Talking about Wayne Rooneyâ€™s attributes, the lad has stamina, aggressiveness, and strength as well. Partnering with Cristiano Ronaldo, who is getting better every day since his return in November, will surely give nightmares to defenders in La Liga and in Europe.
However, will Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s wish ever come to happen?
Wayne Rooney looks set to end his career at Manchester United since moving from Everton in Liverpool, to Old Trafford.
Unconfirmed reports even tell that the England forward will pen a new deal which will see him remain with the Red Devils for much longer, if not forever.
