Vulgar Price Makes Business Sense For United

Vulgar Price Makes Business Sense For United

Sir Bobby Charlton believes that Real Madrid pay over the odds for Cristiano Ronaldo: as we all know, Los Merengues lodged an 80 million bid which United accepted. The deal hasn't gone through yet but there's little doubt that it will be finalised before the end of June.

'It's a lot of money, it's crazy really.

'If you want to be in the race, you have to pay the price. It seems sometimes a little bit vulgar.

'But, nevertheless, that is business, I'm afraid. We have responsibilities to our company and to all the fans that support Manchester United, and it was decided that Ronaldo could go.'


And albeit there could be a lot of debate whether it was the good decision from the football point of view - United scored only 68 league goals last season so selling our most prolific goalscorer seems hardly the best idea - you cannot argue that it made perfect business sense.

Sir Bobby knows that as well even though he did not elaborate on that side of the things. He backed Sir Alex to make the right signings to keep United among the very best.

See,the boy wanted to leave and to get 80million on a player who wanted out is not a bad business.

If we spend that money wisely,we could get better as a complete team.The dressing room will surely be a bit more relaxed,calm and evryone has the opportunity to stand up and be counted,there should also be less selfish play which means the goals can be distributed evenly throughout the team.

Hopefully carrick will become the penalty taker of our team.It will give a boost to his confidence.He makes some beautiful foward runs but not on a regular basis and can finish as well.

I concur with Charlton, its vulgar just like the amount united payed for ronnie £30m+, berbatov £30m+, ferdinand £30m+, nani & anderson £30m+, those serbian kids £16m+,veron, klerberson, forlan, the £10m loan fee + £25.5 united were willing to pay for tevez etc etc I wonder how many trophies SAF would have won if he did'nt have such vast amount of resources at his disposal

I think secretly the Manyoo board are over the moon about this transfer. They have cynically milked the value of Ronaldo for all it is worth. Vulgar? Ruining football, more like. LOL

abmtd, yes, yes, yes. We have a lot of talented penalty and free kick takers - Rooney is actually pretty good at free kicks, amongst others, but they never get the chance because Ronaldo was always there. I like Carrick's penalty taking a lot and tbh he takes them calmly but never with arrogance (so less likely to miss). How many fo Ronaldo's goals for United were freekicks or pens? A fair few...
