Ronaldo Wants To Play For Real

Cristiano Ronaldo announced that he wanted to play for Real Madrid if they pay what they had promised to pay.

Speaking in Neuchatel, at Portugal's training camp, he spoke of his desire to leave the club which stood by him after the 2006 World Cup and where he became almost a cult hero.

'I want to play for Real Madrid, but only if it is true they are eager to pay me and Manchester United what they have been saying they will,' he told Brazilian website Terra.

'However, it does not depend on me.'

Well, mate, I have bad news: you're right and it does not. It's quite a cowardly thing to be honest, pikin' off after two great seasons. You're afraid of the prospect of proving whether you can keep up this form, Ronnie?

I resisted it until now, I must confess what I feel: I feel an urge to say that 'fuck off, berk, if you don't like it here'. I'm fed up of the whole thing, I'm tired: sell him for crazy money and buy three quality players from his price.

Of course, Fergie might want to keep him, in order to prove a point if nothing else. That would be satisfying though unnecessary: if Manchester United is not good enough for him, then so be it.

As a spurs fan I must say he seems to be taking the pee outta you lot, man u are bigger than Real right now and the most successful in the world too. IF he said that then rid him and forget him... Even if he didn't why is he taking so long to commit to you?

As much as I hate him, i cannot belive he said those words. Only if they pay him what they have said? I hope he didnt say that, let him hold onto the little integrity he has left. I for one am now sick of him, and wouldnt care if he goes, give rooney the mantle of being our young sterlet, someonw who is dedicated to our club and will most proabaly be with us the rest of his career. Its tiem for ronaldo to leave, lets move on.

Wow - what a****. Though after hearing him speak about himself I can't say the money comments are entirely surprising. I'm not saying you're a one man team, but you reckon you can hold on to you title without him, because lets face it, with any other winger in place last season .... you don't win the league (or even finish 2nd)

Perhaps Rocky, but dod they not say that after Rudd left? I for one hope Fergie doesnt just keep ronaldo to rot on the bench ansd instead accepts the rediculous offer Real will no doubt give us. I still think we haev a team to compete, our defence was vital in our sucess last season and that will stay the same - hopefully with a new RB. Central midfield we have an abundance of talent through carrick, scholes, anderson and haregreaves and on the left hand side we haev nani and park. we wil lno doubt get a right sided wingetr now - possibly a quaresma, or perhaps robinho as part of the ronaldo deal, and we still have tevez and rooney up top in additon to a experinced stiker. i fo rone am strangely excited by ronaldo leaving, to see who we bring in, as well as to see who will be next to take on his matelpiece. persoanlly i can see rooney thriving in the absense of ronaldo. bring on nexty season, i cant wait!

The only thing I think you will be lacking is a goal scorer. Rooney and Tevez are exceptional players but you just don't see them scoring 25-30 goals for the season. I think if Ronaldo doesn't feature for you next season the Fergie will have to sell to try and bring in another top class goal scorer.

Agreed, he already said he will bring in a top class striker...eto'o, huntelaar, berbatov, santa cruz.......benzema would be my choice.

I was watching the news a couple of weeks ago after the CL final. The BBC reporter ask Ronaldo if he was staying, and Ronaldo looked him straight in the eyes and said, "I stay, I stay". What a little ***** I honestly think he owes you lot another 2 seasons. Btw this is coming from a Liverpool fan!

He will be very hard to replace because even as a Ronaldo hater I have to say he did play brillant this season. But this happens in todays football, no loyality, money counts more than anything else. But a team is more than just one man. But if we win the league next season I will be happy about him leaving hehe

***** off, dear old Ronnie. We loved you, we adored you, you became a hero here - now you'll learn what it's like when football doesn't matter just how many shirts you sell and how many interviews you give. Your career, as many others, will be wrecked in Madrid, and you, as many others, deserve it. How many trophies Becks won at the Bernabeu?

People people, I will capitalise this so everyone reads. HE WILL STAY THIS SEASON, I CAN SHOW EVERYONE A QUOTE OF HIS MOM EVEN SAYING HE WILL STAY WITH MANCHESTER. "He is fine where he is. Only God knows the future, but it's certain that he will continue in Manchester," Dolores Aveiro told TV station TVI. I know Portugal, I am your Portuguese inside man lol.

This is probably one of the few posts i have read about this issue where fans of other teams genuinely try to talk about this in a civilized manner. its usually "i really enjoy seeing you lot crying about CR" etc. I just want to say i appreciate it a lot. Ronaldo will be doubt about that. Like RVN was, and Cantona...great loss, but every obstacle is for a better future...

^ So everyone excepted him to be at Man United for life? Traitor my ass, he has the right to do whatever he wants. The only thing Ronaldo has said is I would like to play for Real Madrid...I would like to play for Barca but will that happen? probably not, everyone gets SO hung up on words of nonsense that they lose any sense of whats going on. SAD. Happy with him ONLY if hes in form and winning for you is what it seems like.
