Posted by Keano! on June 14, 2009

FZ: He Came, He Dazzled, He Left

Posted by Keano! on June 12, 2009

The inevitable has happened. We couldn’t be sure when, or under what circumstances, we couldn’t be sure who would be the one to sanction it, we couldn’t even be sure how much for. But yesterday, 11th June 2009, it was revealed that Manchester United had accepted a world record offer of £80M from Real Madrid, and Cristiano Ronaldo was finally getting his dream move.

The inevitable fact was that he was going to go at some point. But saying it wasn’t still a shock would be a lie in itself. After last summers media frenzy, it was widely known that Madrid would come at United again despite the fact that they said it was all over in January. However, the time scale is rather astonishing. It’s only been 2 weeks since the Champions League final, after which the first collective newspaper speculation began for this year. But going further, after the first notion of a bid came the first acceptance of a bid almost straight away. Not exactly the drawn out circus we thought all thought it would be.

Posted by Keano! on May 31, 2009

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing up Real Madrid’s front man, Klaas Jan Huntelaar as they look ready to release Carlos Tevez who is currently out of contract with United who aren’t looking likely to pay the £30M asking price for him.
