Everybody has probably heard of Manchester Cityâ€™s mega Â£107million bid for AC Milanâ€™s Brazilian Star KakÃ¡.
The Sky Blues are aiming to strengthen their struggling team with the help of their new owners. Owner Dr. Sulaiman Al-Fahim believes that luring big names from other clubs to the blue side of Manchester is the perfect solution to build a strong squad and challenge the big four.
Money is no obstacle for the Abu Dhabi Group. The possible arrival of KakÃ¡ next week or in the summer might encourage Manchester City to bid for more great players.
However, Manchester Unitedâ€™s manager Sir Alex Ferguson is already warning the wealthy Arab owners that seeing Cristiano Ronaldo in a Sky Blue shirt is dream that will never come alive.
“If Kaka is worth Â£100 million then Ronaldo and Lionel Messi must be worth that, too.â€ Ferguson said to the Daily Star.
“And as Cristiano has just been named World Player of the Year ahead of those two, you could say he is worth more â€“ Â£120 million,â€ the boss continued, mesuring Ronaldo’s value.
“There would be no chance of a deal, and that is the attitude of the owners even more than me.
“Cristiano is fully settled down here now.
“We worked hard to achieve that in the summer and I think he realizes that he could only have achieved these individual awards through being a Manchester United player.”
Ronaldo has his mind firmly set on winning trophies for Manchester United as he looks ahead at a brighter future for both himself and the club. The Portuguese Superstar will certainly not love to think about pulling a team – such as Manchester City – out of relegation.
