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.” Read More
Former Arsenal and Barcelona superstar Thierry Henry claims that he thinks Lionel Messi is a better player than Cristiano Ronaldo simply because of having played with the Argentine. Henry played along with Messi during his couple of years at Barcelona.
He has come up against Ronaldo on several occasions – both as an Arsenal star and while at Barcelona. Henry, therefore, is well placed to judge between the duo, who have occupied the top two spots in the FIFA Ballon d’Or awards for the last five seasons. Now working as a Sky Sports pundit, Henry says that Ronaldo and Messi are almost perfect but he would pick Messi on the verge of having played with the 27-year-old.
Ronaldo recently set a new record of having scored more than 30 league goals for the past five consecutive seasons. Messi is next on the record with four. The little Argentine is comparatively younger than Ronaldo and he is expected to dominate world football at least for a few more years than the Portuguese. Read More
Former Real Madrid superstar Angel di Maria says that he does not expect his former teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, to move to Manchester United in the future. Ronaldo has been speaking a lot about a potential return to Old Trafford where he spent seven years before moving to Madrid for a then world record transfer fee.
Even at 30 years of age, Ronaldo is expected to cost significantly more at around £ 60 million. United were reportedly ready to pay this figure for the last two transfer windows, but Ronaldo decided to extend his contract recently.
After hitting the 30-year-old mark, Ronaldo is expected to decline in terms of performance in the next few years. Due to his overwhelming popularity, the Portuguese has the potential to earn a lot by playing in leagues like the MLS and the Middle East. Read More
Great time for Portugal football and especially Cristiano Ronaldo fans.
The Portuguese national football team made their fans proud once again by winning on a dramatic triumph over Denmark and it was their captain’s added-time header that snatched the win for his country.
The dapper Portugal captain rose steadily to meet Quaresma’s cross & bury ball past Schmeichel which claimed all needed 3 points for his team in 95th minute. This very goal upped Portugal off table bottom & allocated a great seat in the 3rd place in the 5-team group on 3 points. The lost team remained 2nd, level on 4 points with the leaders Albania.
Ronaldo’s shenanigan at the Denmark match naturally received kudos from the Portugal coach. “Ronaldo is Ronaldo”, remarked a happy Fernando Santos as the Portugal coach was approached to share his thoughts on the team captain after he struck the winning goal. “He is a great winner & there is no adjective that could describe him.”
The Portugal captain declared his very presence within the 7th minute of the game with a great thumping shot prior to teeing up Daniel Agger 6 minutes later. The efforts were deftly saved by Schmeichel, right in Danish goal. The Danish national football squad lost their defender Boilesen (Nicolai) ten minutes into 2nd half while the left-back player had to be stretchered off given a knock out from Danny.
The Danish team relished ample possession post that, passing the ball well on rain-soaked, slick Parken pitch. They got their optimum chance when Hojbjerg (Pierre) muscled his route through & fed Eriksen (Christian), who quite teed up Krohn-Dehli (Michael) to fire up in the shot which came right back off far post.
Ronaldo came up on stage with time flying off & score the very decisive goal within minutes.
