Pepe refuels the Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid saga

Yet more evidence that C-Ron will leave in the summer

Dolores Ronaldo

We’re quite aware of how much Cristiano Ronaldo’s mum Dolores wants him to play for Real Madrid (there she is holding a picture of her little boy wearing the pretty white strip), and we’re equally aware of how much Pepe wants the winger to come and join him in Spain.

Now, it seems that Mrs R and the Portuguese defender have been in cahoots – the ex-Porto star revealed as much in an interview with Deutsche Presse-Agentur:

“Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother has a dream: seeing her son play for Real Madrid. And everybody knows that mothers carry great weight.

“Both his mother and all his family as well as himself have made it clear that their dream is to play for Real Madrid. It is a dream that his mother has and a dream that he has too. Now we will see what happens.”

After plying on the parental guilt, Pepe went on to explain why he thinks Ronaldo is a much better player than Leo Messi. “He heads the ball well, he is stronger and he scores goals,” reasoned the player who is desperate to be reunited with his international captain.

It is just us, or is there a slight mancrush going on here?
