Real Madrid virtually confirm they want to buy Cristiano Ronaldo
Spanish giants just cannot stop staring at Ronaldo’s picture
Elegant French sports journal L’Equipe has had a chat with Real Madrid’s sporting director, Predrag Mijatovic, and reckon that Real’s singular obsession is to sign the boy Ronaldo.
“In the world of football Real Madrid is one of the most prestigious teams, which is why it needs the best players in the world. Our fans were lucky enough to see Zinedine Zidane in a white shirt, and we all look back to that time when we won the Champions League. That’s why we want Ronaldo to be the face of the new Real Madrid,” says the one they call Pedja.
Real’s dealings in the transfer market have been poor in recent years, bringing neither European glory nor a positive balance sheet, and the huge sums earnt a while back from the sale of their old training ground has long been squandered. However, President Calderon has had enough of being humiliated in Europe, and like all good egomaniacal owners has decided that he must have the best, regardless of contract law or the wrath of Ferguson.
