    All these quotes and reports about Madrid's antics mean nothing really. At the end of the day it doesn't matter what they do or say, if Ronaldo wants to stay, he'll stay, if he wants to go, let him go.

    I'm 100% sure he'll be here next season though.

    First of all if Ronaldo wants to go to madrid, he's not very smart.

    Second I still think he'll sign another contract

    Third Ronaldo transfer talk should be banned because tomorrow something else will be quoted driving everyone mad

    And just to add, someone should give Ronaldo a volley because his mixed signals are taking the joy from alot of people who should only be happy at winning the champioons league/premiership

    Grow up son feck sake.

    He's not helping the situation.

    To be honest, I think he's enjoying it...

    Precisely. He needs to sort his shit out, even if he does have a secret dream of playing for Real Madrid, don't fecking say it to the press you mong, that's exactly what they want, it's just causing controversy and it's not helping either end.

    Having said that, I reckon he'll sign the new contract soon enough.

    Aren't those quotes about Madrid a couple of years old?

    They've just put together old and new quotes to make a story.

    Not old quotes btw.

    Hate to say this but if he really wants to leave that badly, and it kind of seems so, then we should just sell him off and use the money to replace him.

    I would love him to stay, but the lad is playing a dangerous game with the club. No player is bigger than Manchester United. Big players have come and gone but the success always continues.

    Well said. But it looks like he still wants to stay, and I reckon he will for a few more years.

    He said he was staying the other night, I will believe that.

    He'll be here for a while yet.

    Did a quick scout of the Iberian press and I'm guessing these are comments from the Euro 2008 press conference he did with Nani. The relevant bit being as they asked him (approximately!) you dream of playing in Spain - does that mean for Madrid?

    And he gave the same answer he's given for he past two years (though really should have stopped using since a little white/red lie would be better - paricularly this week) - "Everybody has dreams. Even me. Don't you?"

    He then went on to say (responding to Marca's allegation) that he's signed nothing with Real Madrid, that he's under contract to United and that the only talking he's expecting to do is with United - and yes, that there might be more news there in a couple of weeks.

    It's lousy P.R. - loyalty, even feigned, always sounds better than ambiguity - but it isn't news of anything.

    probably? hey im in the camp where im 100% sure this is all more money. its a tactic being employed by ronaldo and his agent: get the supporters all riled up and pressure the board to satisfy the player.

    from a player POV, you've got to strike the iron while its hot. It will not get hotter for ronaldo. I think....

    edit: could ronaldo and his agent be going after some of the image rights?

    Watching..
    Dont think Fergie expects to keep him more than a few years though, said something along the lines of Ronaldo would definately play for United for 2-3 more years which would take him to 25-26 and he didnt know after that

    Yeah, he said it's going to be a task to keep him, and we'll have to win more trophies to..

    That sounds alot better than the articles, I have to say.

    Annoying how they twist it. I hope we get that contract done sooner rather then later. Hopefully before the euro's so we can actually just enjoy it with no silly speculation

    if he doesn't want to stay then i'll prefer we sell him to barca that would get on the tits of madrid.

    and its his agent who behind all of this.

    So now, I should warn everyone about what else I've just read about the press conference!

    This is from the article at: http://noticias.sapo.pt/lusa/artigo/8a881a765d4390d3212838.html

    Basically, he says that he's got nothing to say and there's nothing he can do about the rumours because people have been making stories up about him for years. The press officers say they won't take any more questions that aren't about Portugal. A couple of the Spanish press then asked: "So would you like to have Casillas and Ramos in your team?" And everyone laughs.

    However, at the end - expect this for breakfast tomorrow - one of the reporters hands Ron a Real Madrid poster and much snapping ensues. I haven't seen this bit yet - but I'd guess we'll all have the pleasure soon.

    I don't understand why he needs to play mindgames for a new contract.

    He's the best player in the world, he'll get what he wants. Why not just go out and demand it?

    Here's the translation

    So basically he likes the interest from Madrid
    A "decision" will be made in a few weeks
    He posed with a Real Madrid poster

    New contract or not its a dangerous game to play with Manchester United. Imagine if Rio Ferdinand was doing this before he signed his new contract :nervous:

    feck it, he clearly doesn't love United that much, sell him for all I care, I am sick of the mind games he is playing. Get the 100 Mill and buy new players. As much as I love him, it is clear he only cares about himself.

    I think that articles makes it sound a lot worse than it was.

    Ronaldo: I don't want to talk about it now. There's no point.

    Spanish journo who just couldn't help himself and had to try: So what do you think of Casillas and Ramos?

    Laughter.

    Tomorrows going to be manic then.

    Posing with a Real Madrid poster ffs. He won't need to decide his future, he'll be sold off if he continues like this.

    I'm actually beyond caring now...

    If he stays, then I will be delighted as he is a fantastic player (the best in the world), but my respect for him as a person has already been tarnished, and I will never have the same affection for him that I have for the likes of Rooney, Tevez, Giggs, Scholes etc. And it pains me to say that. But, at the end of the day, I'd feel far more upset, and be more concerned, if it were Rooney we were talking about leaving.

    And..

    If he goes, well then he goes. Real Madrid gain the best player in the world, we (hopefully) get a shed load of cash, replace him, build on our success, and go onto win more trophies.

    All this articles basically say the same things, I don't give a shit about them. Queiroz will sort this out, he'll be the big factor in Ronnie's decision whether to stay or leave. Personally I think Ronnie will sign after the European Championship and stay for at least two more years.

    He's not an easy player to warm to, unlike Rooney, Tevez, Evra or even Anderson.

    It doesn't sound like he posed with a Madrid poster, it sounds like they just gave him it and took loads of pictures. He probably didn't even realise at first.

    Has he ever said he wants to play for Madrid or is just he want's to play in Spain. If so sell him if he want's to go to Barcelona (that would piss Madrid off) for deal with Messi and Cash. I know Ronaldo is a better player then Messi at the moment but who elso is there.

    He said after the WC in 2006 that he wanted to go to Spain to play for Barcelona or Madrid. Nothing like that since then though.

    It's quite interesting the spanish media gave him a madrid poster.....why not and barca poster?

    So it's not about playing in spain it's playing for 'them'...

    Were they on the madrid payroll? lol

    Well I think taking the pic is meh, it doesn't mean anything though no doubt they'll use the pic as some kinda validation he wants to go there

    But his type of personality, he's big on ego unfortunately. I just hope the other lads, like Nani don't follow his lead because Ronaldos setting a bad example

    The players have dream lives, they milk the fans....I don't think its much to ask to repay the fans support by not being complete assholes

    It's the Madrid papers Marca and AS that are obsessed with him and keep printing stuff about him. And the stories of him being a boyhood Real fan keeps popping up.
