Cristiano Ronaldo seems keen on proving just how disloyal he is by begging once again to be allowed to leave Manchester United!
Cristiano Ronaldo set to force £68m move from Manchester United to Real Madrid.
After weeks of speculation, Ronaldo will attempt to force Manchester United’s hand by meeting Sir Alex Ferguson, the manager, and David Gill, the chief executive, to insist he be allowed to move to the Bernabeu.
Bernd Schuster, the Madrid coach, confirmed that Real are continuing to work on a deal,
“We don’t have any doubts that the club is working hard to get a solution to this matter,” Schuster said.
“We’ll have to see what’s going to happen. We always knew that it was going to be a complicated matter. It will obviously not be easy for him to come to Madrid but put the question to any football coach and all of them would say they’d love to have a player like Ronaldo.”
Ronaldo has told Madrid about his intentions in an attempt to appease their frustration at his lack of agitation for a move away from Old Trafford. Real will offer £68 million but need him to force United into the sale.
However, if Ronaldo succeeds in getting United to sell him, it would allow Real to sanction the £30 million sale of Robinho to Chelsea, the terms of which have been agreed in principle. United would reinvest the money from any deal in pushing through their attempts to sign Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham. (Telegraph)
This really stinks! For some reason Cristiano wants to sell the Champions League holders down the river. Even though Sir Alex has tried his hardest to make sure he keeps hold of last seasons top scorer, even he must be losing patience with the Portuguese international. Maybe the time has come to cash in on the talented but infuriatingly brat and then use the money to put in a bigger bid for Berbatov. If they are indeed offered such a fee then they could easily bring in even more talent but having already signed up Carlos Tevez they may not need too much in the way of reinforcements anyway. What do United fans think of their idol turned want-away sulk?
