A week after Portugal came crashing out of Euro 2008 in the most spectacular way possible, Manchester United midfielder Crisitiano Ronaldo figured he had to find a way to get rid of the bad memories. And what better way to wash away those memories then to buy a house…right next to Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon and coach Bernd Schuster. That should make for a long trip between his home and the Carrington training ground!
After weeks of rumours between Real and United over Ronaldo’s future, the Times is reporting that the Portuguese midfielder truly is ready to make the move to the Bernabéu. The only issue remaining is if United will have the balls to actually sit down with Calderon to discuss a deal.
The Manchester United winger has reportedly decided upon a property in the upmarket district of Morajela, close to where Real’s president Ramon Calderon and coach Bernd Schuster live.

The whole house-buying rumour could just be another ploy by the Spanish media to further infuriate Sir Alex, but one has to wonder what is really going on in Ronaldo’s head.
Are United supporters worried about Ronaldo buying a house in Madrid? Or do you think this story is just more paper talk?
