Real Madrid lost control of the La Liga race after losing against Barcelona
Real Madrid lost control of the La Liga race after losing against Barcelona in the Spanish derby which was played on March 22. Following this defeat, rumors began to build up claiming that Cristiano Ronaldo might be making a move to the Premier League more specifically to Manchester City or a possible return to Manchester United.
Manchester City and Manchester United both have the financial prowess needed to sign a high profile player such as Cristiano Ronaldo but at the age of 30, it wouldn’t be a wise thing to do to offload a significantly high amount of cash in order to secure the services of a player who is considered to be one of the best players in the world but at such an elevated age, it remains uncertain as to how long the Portuguese forward will be able to keep up his work rate and the speed that he displays in the pitch.
The President of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez was asked about the current situation of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale and Perez replied by saying that Real Madrid will not be listening to any of the offers that are launched in relation to either Bale or Ronaldo as those are the main stars of the Spanish club.
Real Madrid’s Florentino Perez said: “We shall never listen to any offers for Bale. He is the key to the club’s future, just as I cannot imagine a future without Cristiano Ronaldo. There’s only one Cristiano. Bale is a great player, but he doesn’t win you matches on his own. He doesn’t defend because he doesn’t want to.”
Even with all of the rumors that are linking C.Ronaldoand Gareth Bale with a move away from Real Madrid, it’s highly unlikely that the Spanish club would be interested in offloading any of those players which cost a combined total in the region of €190 million and who are still making huge contributions to the team.
