Last Friday, Cristiano Ronaldo has donned his Real Madrid training kit. And no doubt about it he looks good in white and this is the kit he’s been dreaming of wearing all his life and finally it’s real. Although there’s only a handful of galacticos stars present, CR9, in his red boots,  managed to enjoy his first pre-season training and the world now awaits his first game of the season against Shamrock Rovers on July 20 in Ireland. Will the £80 million cold cash that Real Madrid paid for him be really, really worth it? On the other hand, Sir Alex Ferguson has nothing but praises for CR9 and he has been thankful for the six years that Cristiano has contibuted to Manchester United success.He has nothing but good will to CR9 and his Real Madrid endeavour. Likewise, Cristiano is thankful to the man whom he regarded as his “father in football”. Well, all’s well that ends well. Let’s just see what will happen if Real Madrid faces Manchester United in the Cahampion’s League this year. That is a match worth watching for.

The Torres Tot has finally arrived. Mrs. Fernando Torres, Olalla has finally given birth to their baby girl at the La Rosaleda Polyclinic Hospital of Santiago de Compostela, hometown of Olalla. It was a planned delivery since Olalla was expected to give birth on July 15, 2009. Nando has been staying with the in-laws for a week now after coming back from South Africa to await for the happy event. The Torres tot is named Nora, a greek name which means beautiful as the sun. She was delivered by Dr. Carmen Alvarez and weighed about 3.7 kilos. The La Rosaleda Polyclinic Hospital were on business as usual despite the security hired by Nando.

It was said that after birth, Baby Nora was examined by Dr. Barreiro of the Galego Pediatric Institute.

As said earlier, Nando has been staying with his parents-in-law who lives in San Lazaro. Even his parents came from Madrid to saw their granddaughter once they heard the news.

A lot of reporters expected Nando to make a statement about the birth of his first daughter, but a relative told that the couple plans to offer a general press conference within three days, when the mother is fully recovered from childbirth . Nando and Olalla were expected back in  Liverpool as soon as possible since training will soon began and he can not afford to spare more days. Congrats Nando and Olalla!

Now that our Real Madrid winger is fully ensconced in the land of  the best league in the world, he can now concentrate on another side of his life. Yes that one side that continues to amaze us aside from his footballing prowess. It seems CR9 is reportedly dating another controversial lady and this time it’s the model who was involved in a very hot auction just eight months ago. Raffaella Fico. Yes that italian model who tried to auction her virginity to the highest bidder. But it turned out to be a cheap publicity stunt that led many to believe pure Rafaella is not really that pure as she and her family wanted us to believe. But despite all that CR9 has introduced the girl to his sisters (there was no mention of Mama Dolores) and Elton John during the gig in Lisbon that turned out to be a bad day for him as he was later involved in car-smashing with a “certain fan”. CR9 has been warned by the people around him that he should be wary of Raffaella as this time “he could have finally bitten off more than he can chew” with this girl. I wonder why?


The ego has landed… (Dailymail)

Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo was officially unveiled hours ago as a galactico in front of  80,000 fans. The former CR7 is now CR9. Cristiano was presented Jersey No. 9 which used to be the number of Real Madrid Legend Alfredo di Stefano. And with the £80 million purchase of CR9 he is now the world’s best paid footballer with £200,ooo a week salary. (Ho-alert! Ho-alert!)  And what more he is playing for the team he has been dreaming of since he was a kid and the best league in Europe, according to him. Definitely CR9 is playing for a better pay league.

In a very emotional moment, CR9 told how happy he was to be at the Bernabeu, finally. “For me, I have made my childhood dream a reality, which was nothing less than playing for Real Madrid. I didn’t expect a jam-packed stadium – this is truly impressive.”

CR9 is set to make his debut for Real Madrid against Shamrock Rovers in Ireland on July 20 as part of the Spanish club’s pre-season tour.
