Ronaldo’s departure a blessing in disguise?

The inevitable as today happened with Premier League champions Manchester United accepting Real Madrid’s £80million offer for Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese winger almost signed for the Spanish side last year, but the Red Devils managed to keep hold of their prized procession for another season.

A disappointing Champions Leagues final and the arrival of Kaka at the Bernabeu must of surely been the deciding factor in Ronaldo’s desire to leave Old Trafford. Real president Florentino Perez seems to think he is playing a game of Football Manager, with him rein acting the famous galacticos era again.

Ronaldo 24, joined United in 2003 from Sporting Lisbon for £12.2 million and has achieved everything he set out to win with Alex Ferguson’s side.

Zidane’s £45.6million world transfer record has stood for eight years until Kaka smashed that figure this week, but it now seems that will get broken again

Despite his incredible ability, are Ronaldo‘s childish antics wanted at United? Do united really want to field a player week in week out who doesn’t want to be at the club? Or more importantly does Ronaldo’s departure make way for Antonio Valencia?

Come on Fergie, there's no excuse to get rid of Tevez now.
