Ronaldo - Yet More Rumours!

Ronaldo - Yet More Rumours!

It`s a transfer possibility that just refuses to go away.

Today, one news source is offering up the inference that Manchester United could acquire Cristiano Ronaldo, for a second spell, in a rather illogical way.

The inference being peddled is that if Real Madrid can lure Gareth Bale away from Spurs, for a fee rumoured to be something in the region of £85 million, then the Spanish giants might have to tidy up their financial affairs by moving Ronaldo on.

Once again, the inference is there that United would be willing to offer Real Madrid the sum of £65 million plus a player, thought to be either Nani or Hernandez, in the hope of securing a deal.

But where this whole scenario falls down for me is that it infers that Gareth Bale is, purely because of the fees being suggested, a better player than Cristiano Ronaldo, something I`m sure you`ll agree is simply not true!

I honestly think that Ronaldo would prefer to play for United again, if his possible move was only about heart and feelings. However money talks seriusly business nowadays, and United will rightly so, not offer the same kind of salaries as PSG, Madrid and City, it is simply not sustainable. Therefore if Ronaldo would choose United, which is not gonna happend, it would be for football and emotional reasons not only money. Bale is a very good player thats has developed rapidly, but he has not performed on high level for 3-4 for seasons that would justify 85m£. He could be lured to United, but the price would more likely be in the 45-55m£ bracket. Still I think both players will stay or sign with one of the Arab clubs for a crazy paycheck.

The overhyping of bale is unbelievable. He is a fantastic player don't get me wrong but for me he's more in the Robben Ribery bracket than the Ronaldo Messi one, to keep on using Ronaldo and bale in the same breath is just sensationalism at its finest. If Tottenham had Ronaldo at Bales age in their team this year rather than bale Tottenham would've finished fourth comfortably and probably would've been challenging for the title, that's the gulf in quality.
