The English Premiership goal king Cristiano Ronaldo is said to be out for six weeks following an ankle operation he had on Monday morning in Amsterdam. According to the surgeon who took charge of it, the operation was successful.
It has not yet been confirmed whether Ronaldo will be allowed to play the opening games of Manchester Unitedâ€™s upcoming league campaign; the winger is likely to miss his teamâ€™s first game in August against Newcastle.
Fears that Ronaldo might decline in terms of performance are still alive though the hospital where he made his surgery is widely reputed for ankle and knee operations. One might suppose that if Ronaldo could surmount the challenge of playing in pain in these last 3 months â€“ as he revealed, then he has what it takes to keep on playing at his best. But injury is not the only matter which could prevent Ronaldo from featuring in the Manchester United squad in August.
It has been reported that Real Madrid President Ramon Calderon intends to go in talks with United to negotiate over Ronaldoâ€™s transfer. However, Calderon said that he was not confident Ronaldo will sign for Madrid even if Man United permits him to leave. So is Ronaldo starting to recommit himself to his current club?
He stated on Sunday that he did not know if he will go in Madrid. Well, if the player stays at Old Trafford for some reasons, Manchester United will create history by being the first club to succeed in a transfer war against the Spanish giants Real Madrid.
