Real Targets super starsMarch 30, 2007
MADRID, March 27 (Reuters) – Real Madrid will try to sign Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo and AC Milan midfielder Kaka for next season, club president Ramon Calderon said on Tuesday.
“We really like him (Cristiano Ronaldo) but he belongs to Manchester United and they have to decide to sell him first,” Calderon told Spanish television station Antena 3 in an interview.
“If that is the case then we’ll be first in the queue, although we won’t be paying 80 million euros ($106.2 million) for him.
“I don’t think any player, even someone with Cristiano Ronaldo’s quality, is worth that money, but we are definitely interested if Manchester United want to sell him.”
Ronaldo is in the midst of contract renewal talks with United, but Spanish media have reported that Real hope the Portugal international will reject a new deal and push for a move to Spain.
