Spanish press believe Ronny will finally get his wish
Fiercely loyal winger Cristiano Ronaldo would never dream of hinting that he dislikes Manchester and that he would entertain the prospect of a move to Real Madrid, but according to Madrid-based paper El Mundo, this will be his last season in a red shirt:
Manchester United and Real Madrid reportedly have a gentleman’s agreement to transfer Cristiano Ronaldo to the Bernabeu.
The two team’s agreed in principle to the deal at the end of a bitter tug-of-war for the Portugal star in the summer – but pledged a vow of silence, according to reports in Spain.
The information comes from Real Madrid director Pedro Trapote, who is said to be very close to president Ramon Calderon.
And respected Madrid-based newspaper El Mundo reports that at least two other senior members of the Bernabeu hierarchy are leaking similar information.
The Spanish press don’t have a great record of accurately predicting future transfers, but this seems like a strong possibility, provided that Fergie can stop slagging off the Spanish club for five minutes.
