The vultures are well and truly circling over Real Madrid after their shocking exit from the Champions League and two players are under more scrutiny than any of the others: Kaká and Cristiano Ronaldo, the 2007 and 2008 winners of the Ballon d'Or.
Kaká totally failed to live up to his hefty price tag and even Ronaldo is criticised though his record of one goal per game speaks for itself. He is the Champions League top scorer as well so he can hardly be faulted for Real Madrid's failings. But that's the culture of the club: blame everyone and everything regardless of the facts. And it wasn't like that at United.
"Cristiano knows the value of Manchester United,' Fergie told The Sunday Express.
'That`s the thing. What the players have got here is protection. They come to training every day and there is nobody here to disturb them.'
"I don`t think Real Madrid is an easy club to play for. There is a circus attached to it. There are often loads of fans and an intensive media always filming them."
So, would he ever come back?
"You would like to think that one day he will come back, but you never know. I don`t think he will stay at Real Madrid for life or anything like that.
"There will be other challenges and he is that type of player who welcomes them."
True. And it was Ronaldo himself who admitted to missing Sir Alex and his ways and it was Ronaldo who failed to rule out a return to Old Trafford. Of course it won't happen in the next five years or so but still, it would be nice to see him in our shirt once again, if he's not totally past it by then.
