I'll have more on this later on, but for now here's two quick points on Ronaldo's move to Real Madrid.
It's a good deal for United. Ronaldo wants out, has done for some time, and though there was little evidence of this on the pitch this year, that would have come in time. Rumour has it that this deal has been done for some time and that wouldn't surprise me - keeping him for one more year after the shenanigans of last summer is good going.
Secondly, while I'm not going to point out the lunacy of spending so much on players, Real Madrid have now spent about €138m on two players this week. Either Perez is the President they needed all along or we're in for another failure, a Galacticos Mk II if you will. Time will tell. I can't wait to see.
