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.
