£50m + De Gea for Cristiano Ronaldo?


Since Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United for Real Madrid, for a world record £80m he has, if anything, gone on to somehow improve his all round game. He always wanted to play for Real Madrid and there is a very real possibility that he will see out his career at the club.

More recently though, he has appeared less happy with the status quo. It would of course take a bid of unprecedented volume to land the player and Real Madrid would do everything in their power to hold onto their star man. But, with Jose Mourinho apparently off at the end of the season, fresh questions have been raised about Ronnie’s desire to stay. There are only a few clubs who could afford him worldwide. Let’s have a look at where Ronnie could go if he leaves Real Madrid.


I have no doubt that if Ronaldo became available and was open to a move to Chelsea, Roman Abramovich would bring out the necessary cash to land him. Where Oscar and Hazard bring hope, Ronaldo brings certainty to the forward line. Even if the others weren’t firing and even if Chelsea’s rearguard continued on its generous path, Ronnie would keep Chelsea competitive on his own. But would Ronnie go to another English club after Manchester United? The same question applies to Manchester City.



Richer even than Manchester City, PSG can pretty much get whoever they want. The prettiness of Paris also goes in the club’s favour. If Mourinho went to PSG then Ronnie could well follow. But something tells me that CR7 would prefer to be playing in Spain or England.


Manchester United

The Premier League has never seen a player quite like this. He arrived as a greasy teenager and spent the next 18 months riling the fans with over elaboration. Fortunately for everyone at Manchester United, he grew out of his ‘Nani’ phase to become the most frightening and effective forward that the EPL has seen to date. After his frustrating start, he was man of the match in The FA Cup Final against Milwall, started the following season like a train and hasn’t slowed since. Sir Alex publicly eulogises about the boy at every opportunity and would carry him back to Old Trafford, even at 71. But could Manchester United afford him? A swap deal, involving David De Gea, would make any deal much more feasible.


Anzhi Makallalalala

Ronnie once rolled out the old ‘only god knows the future’ line when asked if he would ever consider moving East. The Russians could probably match his wages but, with other clubs in the hunt, it’s highly doubtful that you will see Ronnie ruling Russia any time soon.

    If de gea not then vidic. I bet if nani and vidic +50 million deal offer to real madrid for c.ronaldo return to man utd then the deal will accept because real need a defender like vidic to beat barca. Wat said guys

    CR7 is a top class player no doubt and any ambitious club would want to sign him but its not in man utd DNA to splash ambigous cash not to think of loosing a world class goalie in the calibre of David De Gea.

    Why on earth would you want our club to depart with De Gea? He’s better than Lindergard by a mile. That would be stupid. Thank god the author of this good aweful article isn’t in the heirarchy of the club.

    Its rada ridiculous to swap De gea with cr7. Why not invest dat money in other areas maybe getting another winger like walcot and showing nigga nani the exit door or maybe get stroothman or even ozil even sniejder instead of my pro de gea. Infact cr7 can forget about cumin bk to united. ONE LUV BRODA

    Why de gea? Why dont we give him the chance ronaldo was also given @ united. Though i luv ronaldo but fergie should swoop,somoneelse not de gea. Do u knw wat de gea might become? Lets start grooming a team from now. Tanks.


    Dec 13, 2012 at 3:26 am

    Man Utd couldnt afford him, there is only one club in England that can and thats City. De Gea is also a poor keeper IMO, why would Real be interested in him?..

  21. hakin

    Dec 13, 2012 at 4:44 am

    United shouldn’t tink of exchanging our best goaalie for cr7, if alex want back cr7 the let hin splash the money + nani, guy unite also need a defender to beat barca, united must keep de gea at united is d best keeper presently and he will keep improving, I love united

  22. Felix

    Dec 13, 2012 at 5:24 am

    Infact, I wil be d happiest man on earth if CR7 make a u-turn 2 old traford. Whtever it wil take 4 man u 2 land him, even if £60m wt De gea, we stil hv gud option 4 stoke city keeper as a replacement.

  23. Aks

    Dec 13, 2012 at 5:56 am

    Real madrid will interest de gea because 1 he is spainish 2 he grow up in madrid 3 he is the futur of spain goalkeeper. It may happen why not if dea gea goes to real never mind we got lindegard and loan keeper ben amos who is aim to break in first team.

    Though we might chrish ronaldo in united bt nt need as we need capabl midfields. Ronaldo plays a big boy futbal now nd dt wldnt suit hm in united. Let go for youngstars whom wil develop their skils even beta dan cr7. D kind of de gea, vidic is worth united and we shldnt gv dem up not 4any body. We reay need midfield in unitd dan any oda positn.
