Has Ronaldo picked his Real Madrid squad number?

Tricky winger shotguns number 9 shirt

Raul and Cristiano Ronaldo

This week, Cristiano Ronaldo told journalists at the FIFA World Player of the Year Gala that he “has been learning” Spanish, and today some further hints of a summer move to Madrid have been dropped.

Ronaldo likes to stick his “CR7″ moniker on everything – his Portuguese boutique, the seats of his cars, his WAGs earrings – but he would almost certainly not be able to wear number 7 in Spain, as that belongs to Real Madrid legend Raul. The Sun say the Manchester Utd star has now taken the precautionary measure of trademarking “CR9″, perhaps implying he has earmarked Javier Saviola’s shirt number.

The trademark, however, was actually registered by C-Ron’s agent shit-stirring Jorge Mendes, which means the whole thing could just be another rouse designed to destabilise his position at Manchester Utd…

    He will NOt get number 7. Raul is a legend in Madrid. However, I think that Madrid could become a “Real” force if they get Ronaldo.


    I’ll get my coat.
