Man Utd sweat on Ronaldo – will he do a runner to Real Madrid?

All the Cristiano Ronaldo speculation looks like it is going to end in the next few days as the man claims that he will stop the ‘umming’ and ‘ahhing’ , banish “Should I Stay Or Should I Go?” from his Ipod’s playlist and finally make a concrete decision on his future…

This declaration came after Portugal’s 2-0 win over Georgia:

“Speaking to Portuguese journalists, Ronaldo, who has encouraged speculation on his future by giving conflicting messages to the English and Spanish media, said: ‘Let’s see, I hope there will be news soon. In two to three days I will announce my decision.'” (Guardian)

The Guardian goes on to speculate that Real are waiting in the bushes and are prepared to leap out, flashing a rather large £70m bid, if Ronaldo gives the green light. With money like that on the table, and with Ronaldo declaring a desire to move, what could Utd do?
