Since the end of the 2006 Germany World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo has been at the centre of wild and at times preposterous speculation. Real Madrid have been chasing him for over two years now with FC Barcelona and AC Milan also voicing their interest in the Portuguese international winger.
Goal.com has one again reported another such speculation. Goal.com reports that Real’s sporting director Predrag Mijatovic has reiterated the club’s ambition to lure the Manchester United player to the Bernabeu.
This is what the former Real Madrid striker told The Sun:
Ronaldo is an exceptional footballer and, although we know signing a player like that is very complicated, we will just have to keep working on it. If one day a chance opens up, then we will be there trying to sign him. He’d grace any team in the world.
Man United manager has already snubbed such persistent tracking of his most prized asset and the player himself has rebuffed such speculation, always asserting that he is happy at Old Trafford. Yet football being football the rumour never ends.
