Ronaldo to leave Madrid & Guardiola to join Man City

Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Real Madrid

Madrid biased paper AS report that Ronaldo is ‘more like to leave at end of this season than he is to renew his contract’. The reasons being:

  • He doesn’t think the club support him enough in his efforts to win various awards such as the Balon D’or and Spanish Player of the Season.
  • He doesn’t think he gets enough protection or that the club push for him to get protection as Barcelona do with Messi.
  • He feels he doesn’t receive the respect from either Madrid or La Liga that he used to get at Manchester United and in the Premiership.

The article implies he’d like a move back to the Premiership. It refers to recent interviews where CR7 has called Ferguson a ‘fantastic person’ who is ‘like a father in football’ and that he ‘really misses him’ and has a ‘great relationship with him’. He also says that the first time he put the Madrid jersey on he was happy but now three years down the line he is longing for the respect he got from both Manchester United and the Premiership.

Barcelona worried that Pep Guardiola is going to join Manchester City

His agent claims there were firm offers from Manchester City, Chelsea, AC Milan and Bayern Munich as well as enquiries from the FAs of Qatar, Chile, Brazil and ENGLAND!

Now that Begiristain is Sporting Director at City, Barcelona are afraid of Pep teaming up with him and them raiding the Barca youth set up.

City are particularly interested in Pep as part of a project to replicate the La Masia youth system in Barcelona. City are going to spend £100m on the project which will accommodate 80 in-house trainees and have the potential to train up to 400. According to AS their aim is to ‘create the Messi of the future’

AC Milan want Carvalho, Kaka and Arbiol

Milan representative has been at the Bernabeu to discuss the possible transfer of Ricardo Carvalho for €9m on a 2.5 year contract. He also enquiried about Kaka and Raul Albiol. However, Carvalho said he’d rather put family first and that they are very happy in Madrid.
