Ronaldo breaks silence over Real desire
International Football, Latest news update:
Cristiano Ronaldo has broken his silence to reveal that he wants to play for Real Madrid - if they pay Man Utd Â£70million.
The Portugal winger announced his desire to a Spanish news website and then attempted to put a stop to the constant request for interviews by saying he would not say anything more until after Euro 2008.
"I want to play for Real Madrid, but only if it is true they are eager to pay me and Manchester United what they have been saying they will," said Ronaldo in an interview with Terra. "However, it does not depend on me."
Real Madrid have been rumoured to be willing to pay Â£70m for Ronaldo's release from his Old Trafford contract, which has four years to run, and were reportedly promising a record wage packet of Â£300,000-a-week.
