Ronaldo is worth his price tag: Real Madrid teammate

London, June 21 (ANI): Cristiano Ronaldo’s wage demands may be sky high, but inside the Real Madrid dressing room there are no complaints about his superstar status.

The Portuguese striker’s world record 80 million pound move from Manchester United is set to be ratified this week after his agent made a last-ditch move to squeeze even more cash for his client.

So will Ronaldo, who will earn 175,000 pound a week next season, be branded “greedy” by his new team-mates?

No, says Spain international defender Sergio Ramos, The Mirror reports.

“People always try and talk about what players are earning, but the truth is the only people who know are the club, the player and the player’s agent,” said Ramos.

“If you are happy with your deal you are not worried what other players are earning. It is up to your agent to look after your contract, and Madrid look after their players very well so I do not see there being any problem in regards to that.”

Ramos added: “People talk about Ronaldo and Kaka being the start of a new Galactico era, but what not everybody knows is that Galactico was a word used by the press and not the club.

“Real Madrid always try and sign the best players in the world because we are the biggest and most famous club in the world. It really is as simple as that. (ANI)
