Bye Bye Ronaldo!

Manchester United have agreed to sell Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid for a world record 80 million pounds, the club said Thursday.

"Manchester United have received a world-record, unconditional offer of 80 million pounds for Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid," said a statement on its website, under the headline "Reds accept £80m Ronaldo bid."

The statement continued: "At Cristiano's request - who has again expressed his desire to leave - and after discussion with the player's representatives, United have agreed to give Real Madrid permission to talk to the player.

"Matters are expected to be concluded by 30 June. The club will not comment until further notice." of the longest football transfer saga is coming to an end very soon. Real's interest in Ronaldo since the 2004 season will end with them getting their man for a world record. For me, only a stupid person will reject such a bid. With 80 million pounds, ManUtd can buy a few good replacement in Valencia, Ribery, Villa and many more. It's a logical move and a wise one for players like Giggs, Scholes, Neville, Van der Sar are facing curtains down on them. So long to Cristiano Ronaldo....
