Ronaldo may quit Man U in 70 million pound move to Real Madrid

Arsenal London, May 23 (ANI): Manchester United ace striker Cristiano Ronaldo plans to quit this summer for a 70 million pound move to Spanish club Real Madrid.

Ronaldo has told friends and teammates to forget stories that he is staying at Old Trafford. After a hat trick of titles and two Champions League finals, he feels he has achieved what he wanted.

Now he is keen to revive Real Madrid’s fortunes in a record-breaking switch to the Bernabeu, The Sun reports.

A United source said: “He looks to have made up his mind again. He is not saying it publicly with such a big game coming up next week in the Champions League final. But in his mind that will be his last. The fact Real trailed Barcelona in La Liga this season only makes the challenge more exciting for him.”

Ronaldo made his feelings clear to those close to him as recently as last Saturday, when champagne was still flowing after United’s title-clinching home draw with Arsenal.

The Sun reports that a number of senior players have been trying to talk round the Portuguese wizard, but he is having none of it.

And manager Alex Ferguson, who won the same fight last summer, will now find it very difficult to keep the World Player of the Year. (ANI)
