It is transfer time and understandably speculation on Cristiano Ronaldo has started to sprout. And understandably Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is not very happy with the current situation.
Spanish paper El Mundo recently carried a news in which they quoted the Real Madrid diretor Pedro Trapote as saying that they have reached an ‘gentleman’s agreement’ over the Cristiano Ronaldo situation and shall sign the 23-year old Portuguese international winger in the summer.
Sir Alex Ferguson though seems to have no knowledge of the deal. Instead he has gone on a full blown attack on the Spanish champions and has christened them as a “mob”. He has gone on further:
“Do you think I would get into a contract with that mob? Jesus Christ! No chance. I wouldn’t sell them a virus. That’s a no. There is absolutely no agreement at all between the clubs. I said to [chief executive] David Gill that you can bet your life that in January the rumours will start up again. We’ve just got to ignore them.”
Well, given what Real Madrid have done, are doing and will possibly do in the coming months, it is hard not to agree with whatever Sir Alex has to say about the Madrid giants.
But what has the man in the middle of the storm, Cristiano Ronaldo, has to say about this. Well, here you go:
“I don’t want to talk about it. I just want to win the Club World Cup trophy.”
Well, if you read it carefully, he said that he doesn’t want to talk about it. Maybe he could have said that he has not signed any agreement. But he didn’t.
Is it only me or are you too getting some ideas here?
