The price tag of Ronaldo – Real Madrid told United
Manchester United have decided that they won’t be making an offer for Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in this running transfer window after Madrid told them of what they should pay for the Portuguese star.
As per the Press, the La Liga side have slapped a £80m price tag on the 30-year-old, which would see him come back to Old Trafford at the same cost he cleared out for in 2009.
In spite of the fact that Ronaldo is the current Ballon d’Or award holder, and completed last season with an astonishing total of 48 goals in the top flight alone, it is reasonable that Louis van Gaal has chosen to go on paying such a sum for the club’s previous legend.
The forward will be 31 in February, regardless of his status at the highest point of world football, United are reluctant to match Real’s asking price.
There would be such a great amount of expected of Ronaldo, given what he has done during his entire career, that there is no chance that he can do what’s necessary to legitimize such a heavy price tag.
He would need to repeat such form he has specified in Spain to be viewed as a win, which will be an extremely troublesome mission.
Van Gaal uncovered today he isn’t certain about his current goalkeeper De Gea, who has asked for a transfer to Madrid and had a worse than average exhibitions in a friendly match against PSG.
Louis van Gaal supposedly has Ronaldo at the highest point of his mid-year transfer window – despite the fact that the Dutchman is said to be practical in respects to his shots of getting the former United star.
