Ramon Calderon: “Van der Vaart is almost certainly Madrid’s only summer signing”
Ronaldo may have to face up to his big scary boss after all
In contrast with his normal propensity to stir the Cristiano Ronaldo transfer broth, Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has insisted brand new £11.8m midfielder Rafael van der Vaart represents the club’s only venture into the transfer market this summer:
“We are certain that he will be a player who will help us complement the already very strong squad we have.
“He is the first and almost certainly the last signing we will make this season.“
With this news, it looks as though the prostitutes of Spain will have to wait for at least another year before they get their huge Ronaldo-based windfall…
Spoiler bonus: Those lucky blighters in Spain are now in the enviable position of sharing a country with Rafael’s wife Sylvie van der Vaart
