SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: UPDATE | CRISTIANO RONALDO TO LEAVE REAL MADRID

UPDATE | CRISTIANO RONALDO TO LEAVE REAL MADRID

It´s the most talked about Football News piece in Spain, Italy & World Football; the almost certain transfer by REAL MADRID to JUVENTUS FC of star striker CRISTIANO RONALDO. The operation looks imminent, possibly within the next 24-36 hours, as Italian representatives are apparently flying to Madrid to shut the transfer for a reported possible "Saturday" presentation in Turin. However, this seems a bit premature.

REAL MADRID reconfirmed & yesterday again gave their "green light" to sell Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus FC in a late night meeting in Madrid with player representative Jorge Mendes. The Spanish Club said "OK" to the 100M€ price tag with one condition only: that Ronaldo explain publicly his reasons for wanting to abandon Real Madrid. The Spanish Club has equalled the 30M€ / season salary by Juventus FC but the Portuguese star seems adamant to leave.

So what now is needed is for Juventus FC to formally present Real Madrid their 100M€ offer & Ronaldo to say yes, & give a press conference explaining his decision. In fact, there are news pieces showing the "new" Juventus playing shirt, his possible new mansion in Turin (Italy) & ex Juve President Moggi has claimed Ronaldo has already signed & passed medical exam in Munich days back.


CRISTIANO RONALDO TO LEAVE REAL MADRID

However, rumours locally through some Sports media claim that Ronaldo may be playing a "different card hand" & also sounding the opinion of Paris St Germain & Manchester United to see if they can better the Italian offer. If this is correct, then the Ronaldo argument that his desire to leave Real Madrid has not to do with money loses credibility. Plus if Ronaldo is "using" Juventus as a bargaining lever  this will be seen as "ugly". As mentioned they are currently local rumours doing the Sports media rounds.

Conclusion, the Football World & Italy in particular awaits the final signatures. As the popular saying goes: "Its not over until the Fat Lady sings". But given the current situation & barring a late minute change of mind, CRISTIANO RONALDO is more than half way out the door of Real Madrid, and the Spanish Club gives their OK.

Stay tuned!
