Official Club Statement: F*** Off Real Madrid!

Manchester United have had enough it seems. The club rarely releases official statements regarding transfer speculation but Real Madrid have stepped over the line.

Fergie's outburst against Real in which they claimed they were always immoral and never had any respect had no effect: president Ramon Calderon expressed his surprise as he felt they had done nothing wrong and the chorus got louder: Sergio Ramos, Bernd Schuster and anyone who is breathing at the Madrid press urged Ronaldo to join Real Madrid.

The minor quibble that this is against FIFA regulations did not worry them in the slightest - yet it should as United are ready to report them to the governing body.

'The club has released the following statement regarding Cristiano Ronaldo:

Manchester United has watched with growing irritation the comments attributed to Real Madrid over their alleged desire to sign Cristiano Ronaldo.

The facts are:

1) The player is on a long-term contract and his registration is held by Manchester United

) The player is not for sale

The club will have no alternative but to report Real Madrid to the world governing body, FIFA, if it continues to behave in this totally unacceptable fashion. These public attempts to unsettle the player are completely against the regulations and the club will not tolerate them any longer.

In addition, the club is certain that they are a distraction for the Portuguese national squad as they prepare for the European Championships. No-one should be in any doubt that Manchester United will do everything in its power to keep its best players.'

I think we can safely say that's it for this summer. Ronaldo won't go anywhere. Not that actually reporting Real to FIFA would make any difference: they are too powerful within the organisation to get any punishment. But it is a statement of intent and an impressive one at that. Ronaldo's agents should forget about forging a deal this summer.

Little Dutch, United; and any British club never make their transfer activities public, and if you are accusing of us of what i think you are, may i bring to your attention your own club's tranfer history, and the little "lock-him-away" tactic you used to prise Fabregas from Barca. But that's aside the point, year in year out Madrid use the media to try and unsettle players and this year it seems that Ronaldo is their top priority. He wont leave, and i think even they know that, but are trying to plant the seed so in future seasons they can get him easier. As for Madrid, it seems as if they are about to turn their attentions to do i know that, because they told the WHOLE FECKING WORLD!!!! muppets.

Personally I think Jimmy Greenhoff was a better player than Ronaldo. Whatever happened to his brother, Brian?

Arsenal broke no rules in the signing of Fabregas (we had amanager who bagged a brown envelope in signing legend Pal Lydersen). Jaap Stam's autobiography suggests United are just as bad as Madrid in tapping up. Though the way Madrid doit so publicly simply shows how weak and pathetic the authorities are.

People I am an Arsenal fan, you have my backing 100%. I am so so p*ssed off with this, please please please bring these ****ers down, for years we have had to put up with their **** about how they are going to sign our player and how the player them self has told the president he wants to go to them. It's a broken record now. If they have spoken to the players like they are saying they have with ronaldo then surely this is tapping up. It shouldn't have to take a club to report them when the are making it so F*cking obvious in the press and getting cars delievered addressed to ronaldo. What a **** joke. The problem is that that a**ehole in charge of FIFA is as corupt as them. I mean they go on about that clubs should not put themselves in debt but he was quite happy when Madrid were in debt then sold their training ground to the council for 100m then bought it back for f88k all. Revolt I say Revolt. If you do ever sell him, sell him to Athletico to teach them a lesson.

NOTE: There is an imposter by the name of "Cantona's Kick" pretending to be a Utd Fan......truth is he is "Essientric" from Vital Chelsea; who recently had Java banned from the Vital Network. They are bullies and are trying to monopilise the whole Vital Network, however we here at Vital United will do all in our power to stop it from happening. While his posts will continue to be deleted, there is no concrete way to stop him from posting so if you se it in the future please refrain from taking it as anything else than a sad little bitter chelsea fan.

Back to Ronaldo.I'm disgusted with Madrid.Now they're trying to blame the English and Spanish press for the hype.Amazing,it comes to days after Schuster spoke about Ronaldo fitting in and coping with the pressures of playing in Spain.I don't believe they'll get him but they're f***ing with his head.I'd hate to loose him as he's hands down the best player in the world but if he wants to leave UNITED so be it.It's a cliche but nobody is bigger than our club.We'll never die.
