Man U tells Ronaldo to prove his loyalty if he wants pay hikeNovember 11th, 2008 - 2:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov.11 (ANI): Manchester United and Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo has been told by the club to prove his loyalty before demanding a pay hike.
Ronaldos agent Jorge Mendes met Red Devils chiefs yesterday to discuss the possibility of a new deal, but according to The Sun, United made it clear they will not upgrade Ronnies 120,000-pound-per-week contract unless he demonstrates his desire to stay at Old Trafford.
The Premier League champs do not want to put themselves in a position where any top player who is targeted by another club will expect a new deal.
That is why Ronaldo has been told he must wait and show his worth in the meantime.
Real have vowed they will not pursue the 23-year-old again and are on the verge of signing Alipio Brandao, 16, who is being dubbed the new Cristiano Ronaldo. (ANI)
