Ronaldo Is Better Than Bale

Ronaldo Is Better Than Bale

Fergie admitted Spurs were in pole position to land Gareth Bale whilst David Gill stated United would not sell Ronaldo to Real Madrid, regardless of the money they offer.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale just can't get off the headlines. I understand the Bale-mania: he's really good, young, British - the media hype is no surprise and he can't stay at Southampton for too long. United and Spurs were after him and now the latter are in pole position to secure him, according to Fergie.

'Southampton said no to us because they are looking for more money, which they have every right to do,' said the United chief.

'I am not exactly sure what Tottenham have offered but they have offered more and that puts them in pole position.

'The bid we made for Gareth reflected his potential. There were a series of build-ups in it because we have to protect our own club's assets too.

'We offered an initial fee with add-ons depending on how many games he plays, international caps and so on.

'There are so many examples of young players being given a chance at this club, no-one could dispute the fact they will get opportunities. Maybe the boy himself would need to assess that.'

The fee is reported to be around 10 million which is a devastating amount for a 17-year-old. Spurs need him, we do not need him RIGHT NOW so we can afford to lose him.

We can't afford to lose Ronaldo, though and I don't understand why the tabloids keep on printing nonsenses about a possible move to Real. Of course it's possible the Spanish club tries to unsettle him but there's no way we would let him go now, as David Gill confirmed.

'There has been no offer. Ronaldo signed a new contract in 2005 to stay with us until 2010,' he told BBC Radio Five Live.

'He is clearly someone we want to stay and we will make sure that he does.

'The big clubs may talk in the papers but they fully understand our position. They know we are not a selling club of our prize assets so there is no way that will be sanctioned.

You should READ the article before start blasting him. The headline is about the fact that retaining Ronaldo is more important than buying Bale. But of course reading is not so easy, it requires some work with your brain...

Keeping Ronaldo is better than buying Bale is a bit long for a headline, you may agree. But I promise that if you have any good ideas I will change this one. Of course deciding which ideas are good is down to me but have a try!

Sorry denis but where did you read that ''Anyone who guarantees a player first-team football every week is wrong"? He said Bale should not fear that he would not get enough opportunities here. Having said that, it's better for Bale to go to Spurs. You need left-backs (and he could be tried in left midfield, too) while we have a plethora of them. We would splash the cash (or so I believe) for a good midfielder but for a left-back it's too much with all our debts, as I had written earlier.

denis22, you are pathetic. Fergie never said what you attributed to him and we really don't need a left-back for that money. Would Spurs buy a central midfielder for 20million? No, because they have about 465 of them...
