It seems Cristiano Ronaldo is staying at Manchester United. According to Dailymail online,

“It emerged last night that United have been contacted by several leading European clubs – including Spanish giants Barcelona – urging them to make a stand against the rise of player power by resisting Ronaldo’s demands to be sold to Real Madrid.

United are now more determined than ever to send out the right message to the rest of their own playing squad by refusing point blank to give in to a player they feel has tried to engineer a move in the worst possible way.

According to senior United sources, Gill in particular is livid with Ronaldo and the manner in which the Portugal star first tried to bully the club into giving him a new £150,000- a-week contract and – when that failed – then attempted to bulldoze his way to Madrid.

This has made the United chief only more determined to keep the player, who has risen from anonymity to world stardom since arriving at Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon in 2003.

A United source said: ‘David’s position mirrors that of the manager. The fact is that Ronaldo will not be sold this summer.

Real Madrid can offer what they want. It won’ t happen.

This whole business has infuriated everybody at the club and it is very much seen as a point of principle now.

‘If Ronaldo is allowed to leave then what message does it send out to the rest of the squad? We would have chaos on our hands.’

Wll, Ronaldo may stay at Old Trafford this season, but sooner or later he is going to Real Madrid. Mark my words.
