The man who came to Manchester United as a young precocious talent, whom today is regarded as the best footballer in the world. Cristiano Ronaldo. His skills and speed dazzles fans and opponents. His step overs, his dazzling array of dribbling skills, his physics defying free kicks..... he is simply blessed with great skills and rightfully so to that Manchester United is rumoured to be more than willing to offer him a 200k per week... and that is Sterling mind you! But, I think he is worth it if his performances in 2006/07 is any yardstick.
But what I cannot stomach are the news of him wanting to leave the club and being reluctant to commit. There may be more than meets the eye with all the news reports but, for me is, if a player is not willing to play for the team anymore, he should just GO.
Much as I would like Ronaldo to stay at Manchester United, I cannot accept that the club that I love would be held ransom by one man. With his family pitching in to fight his cause, I think the only logical thing for United to do is to sell him to Real Madrid. If that is where his heart is and we can make a bundle of the sale and bring in the likes of Micah Richards, Roque Santa Cruz or Jan Klaas Huntelaar... or maybe... just maybe... Karim Benzema? All for about 80mil... that would make good business sense.
Ronaldo should know better, Real Madrid is not the place for a player to further develop, its probably the end of the road.... for many at least. I can only wish Ronaldo good luck... and to Sir Alex Ferguson... SELL HIM.
