Real Madrid have finally decided to stop casting a shadow over Manchester United and Arsenal. Sky Sports reports that the Spanish club’s sports director Predrag Mijatovic has made it clear to Radio Marca that Real will waste no more time or energy pursuing Cristiano Ronaldo and Cesc Fabregas.
Mijatovic, a former Real player, said:
”Cristiano Ronaldo is at a great club in Manchester United. I see it as an impossible signing. We are not the only team who would like to have a player like Cesc, but he belongs to a big club in Arsenal and it is an almost impossible signing. I am very clear that we are not going to waste time on things we can not do.”
After over two years of wild speculation, Real have ultimately decided to drop the matter altogether. Yet, being Real Madrid, they might just be hatching some other plans. Maybe this is just a policy to make Ronaldo and Cesc believe their continual refusal to be seduced has stripped them of the chance of playing for the most successful and biggest club in the world?
Maybe Real think that by doing this, they would actually increase the players’ desires to come to Madrid on their own?
