Glazers Give Madrid Green Light For Ronaldo – AS
After weeks of Marca promoting the Portuguese star’s increasingly problematic switch, the strongest Madrid-leaning paper, has now waded in with a claim that a deal will be done.
While AS recognise that Sir Alex Ferguson will continue to strongly object to the transfer, the owners of the Red Devils are tempted, according to the report.
It was reported some weeks ago that Madrid were considering by-passing the vociferous Scottish manager in order to try and tempt the Glazers and it may be working.
After a meeting with United executive director, David Gill, the club’s bosses are even more convinced that the cash on offer is worth more than the player himself.
The latest reportes on Ronaldo requiring surgery have not thought to have dampened Madrid’s desire, because as stated yesterday, they cannot afford to miss out on signinghim.
Somefigures within the Bernabéu doubt the sense in splashing out so much money when the club’s debts are already alleged to be borering on EUR400m, but president Ramón Calderón is keen to press on.
Previous figures of EUR90m were mentioned, but AS now state that Madrid will look to bring it down to below EUR70m in order to keep some restraint.
This is a big news guys, though it’s still a rumour but we have to take whatevercomesinour
