Manchester United continue to lose their once cast-iron grip on the transfer market. First, they paid a billion pounds to get Carrick from Tottenham, then couldn’t get Bayern Munich to take a billion pounds for Owen Hargreaves, and now Newcastle reject Hugo Viana and Luis Figo have joined Phil Scolari in trying to dictate Cristiano Ronaldo’s future,
“Cristiano Ronaldo is the Portuguese player with the best future in the European market,” Figo stated.
“He could go very far, but he will have to pay attention to the club he chooses to play for.
“In individual terms I think Cristiano could win every title going because he has the quality to do so. But equally I think it depends on the club where he is at to live up to his standards.”
Figo, now apparently a centre back at Spurs, stopped short of calling United a mickey mouse club that will never win anything – but he may as well have. Seems like Ronaldo’s future is going to be one of those that comes up every time the transfer window opens, and to be honest it really does seem a matter of when – not if – he decides he’d like to go somewhere else.
Mainly because we can’t imagine Sir Alex feels comfortable talking to someone that looks like a Ken doll.
