Calderon Calls It A Day?

Calderon Calls It A Day?

It would seem that regardless of Ronaldo's decsion, he wont be leaving us this Summer, after Calderon publically admitted defeat in his pursuit of the winger.

However, the 57 year old has revealed he refused a somewhat strange request from United Chief Executive David Gill, to abandon his hunt forever.

Speaking to Spanish press, Calderon said:

'At the moment it seems impossible for him to come. We shouldn't talk about Ronaldo any more because at the moment it's impossible. It's an aspiration which has no chance of happening because his club have said they are not selling and we must not talk about it any more.'

He then went on to reveal the contents of a letter sent to Calderon, on behalf of United Chief Executive, David Gill.

'The managing director sent me a letter telling me they will never sell him and even asking me to publicly declare that I will never sign him, which is something which doesn't make much sense.'

He then went on to state something which is the biggest hint he has given up the fight.

'We have to think that at the moment, whatever Cristiano says, Manchester won't sell him.'

Calderon then went on to boast about his club's wealth before issueing a threat to United that Real's pursuit for Ronaldo would not stop after this summer's dissapointment; something I think ALL United fans already knew.

He then rather pathetically defended himself, saying he wouldnt be to blame if the transfer does not go through.

'If he doesn't come, I won't consider myself guilty.What happened with Kaka (last year) was different.(Sporting director Pedja) Mijatovic had it (the deal) very advanced, also with Cesc (Fabregas), and it seemed a good idea to tell (people) what our project was.It didn't happen and I am sorry because they would have helped us a lot.'

Will Calderon finally learn that you cannot go around every summer spouting utter sh**e, and making his transfer plans so public. Also, I find it very hard to belive that Fabregas was close to signign with them last season; having considered how many times he has pledged his future to the club....but thats another story.

So, can we finally put this whole boring saga behind us? I fear not, not until Ronaldo himslef makes his decision.

I hate Real Madrid but as a Chelsea supporter I'm hardly on your side either. For our sake, I hope he leaves the EPL!

Agree with RD completely, that'll turn off the one-man show. But as for Madrid, seriously, they go about tellin the world publicly of all whats in their minds. Just look at what he`s saying... "coz they could've helped us a lot"....like their feckin Madrid media property. Hope his antics work on Fake Ronnie and he leaves :)

anw...i dont think CR is staying. There's a really nice analysis of the whole saga, at goal.com, and i dont see CR staying. even if he does, the glass has cracked...and we know how SAF deals with players that have fallen out with him.

If we get Robinho for CR, it wont be bad at all. With a decent striker like Santa Cruz of blackburn, and rooney playing gat his natural position, I dont really see as "weakening"...our attack might be even better:D

^ no, Robinho has a hard time handling defenders tackling him in Spain, how do you think he'd do in England? Quaresma if Ronaldo goes.
