'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Footballer`s Love Their Ice-Cream!

First it was Aleksandr Hleb; now it is Cristiano Ronaldo; who has been pictured meeting with Real Madrid representatives.

In one of the least sensational, 'SENSATIONAL` revelations, Ronaldo has been pictured in The Sun meeting with Real Madrid fitness coach Walter Di Salvo; once of United.

Now before certain members go off on one about how "we are traitors" and are "merely adding fuel to the speculation", let me explain that these pictures do not prove conclusively that Real Madrid have 'tapped-up` Cristiano Ronaldo.

Indeed, Di Salvo is known to have a strong relationship with Ronaldo during his time at United, and this could simply be a meeting of two friends. In addition, there is the fact that these photos aren`t recent, and were indeed taken some 22 weeks ago. Are we to believe Real Madrid have been chasing him for so long? Alternatively, this could quite plausibly just have been a chance meeting.

However, it does add to the growing speculation that Real have acted unlawfully. Just yesterday, the man we all love to hate Roman Calderon brushed off United`s official complaint to FIFA; claiming that we had "no proof". Well Mr. Calderon, explain this.

Also, it begs the question - why were Ronaldo and Di Salvo in Rome in the middle of January? There were no Champions League matches and no matter how rich one is, Italy is hardly a place for a day-trip. Indeed, it is already known that Di Salvo, once of United; has complied a full-report of Ronaldo to Real, in which he lists everything from the players diet to his personality...good tools to know if you want to 'tap-up` someone.

But for know we must wait and see whether or not these pictures really do incriminate Real Madrid. The Sun have confirmed they are sending the photos to United for use with their investigation, and will provide food for thought for the guys at FIFA one would presume.

For those of you who haven`t seen the pictures, they can be seen on The Sun`s official site:

Do they or don`t they incriminate Real (and Ronaldo)...make up your OWN mind.
