Just days after breaking the World record transfer fee when signing Kaka, Real Madrid have broken it again with an £80million offer on Cristiano Ronaldo which has been accepted by Manchester United. This is obviously without doubt the best bit of business United have ever done, by developing a player in to the best who helps us win three titles in a row and the European Cup, then selling on for a profit of £68million. We can’t complain!

“Manchester United have received a world-record, unconditional offer of £80million for Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid,” read a club statement. “At Cristiano’s request – who has again expressed his desire to leave – and after discussion with the player’s representatives, United have agreed to give Real Madrid permission to talk to the player. Matters are expected to be concluded by 30 June. The club will not comment until further notice.”

Ronaldo requested to leave eh? Well, thanks for all the help in winning our trophies Ronnie. Best of luck.

I’ll leave my reaction until later.
