Real Madrid Blasted For Selling Ronaldo

Real Madrid Blasted For Selling Cristiano Ronaldo

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jul 16, 2018 10:38 AM @KurtLaduma

Spanish giants Real Madrid have been blasted for selling their all-time record goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo to Italian champions Juventus.

The 10 Most Expensive Transfers In History, Ronaldo 7th!

Last week, Los Blancos confirmed they had reached an agreement with Juventus over the sale of the 33-year-old forward, who scored more goals for 2017/18 UEFA Champions league winners than any other player in history.

Former Real president Ramon Calderon has since hit out at the Santiago Bernabeu club for making a huge mistake in letting the Portuguese leave.

"It's very sad that they have sold a player like Cristiano Ronaldo, it's a real pity," he told Spanish news outlet AS.

"(Particularly) with what it cost me to sign him, the effort that we made to bring him to Madrid. Manchester (United) did not want to sell him and it was very difficult. And now they have sold him for €100 million. There isn't a player who scores 60 goals a year for you and is worth to you (only) €100m.

"Selling Cristiano is not good news, either for €100m or a billion.

"But it is true that we put a clause of a €1bn to discourage those interested in him in the future, but at the same time, to show that there was no other player like him.

"It's an historic error."

Ronaldo's signature cost Juve €105 million (R1.62 billion), the most the Bianconeri have ever spent on a player.

Highest-Paid Players Worldwide After Ronaldo Transfer

The forward found the back of the net an incredible 450 times in 438 matches for the LaLiga giants.

Honestly!! Real Madrid didn't actually wanted to sell Ronaldo. I mean they can't sell a player that is contributing so much in their winnings. Ronaldo himself requested to move, for the sake of a new challenge of his career. For the last three seasons Ronaldo has been asking to move. But the President of Real Madrid gave him irrestible offers, and begged him to stay. Remember that Ronaldo's Real Madrid contract was supposed to expire on 2022. So Real Madrid President thought that it will not be a good thing to stand on his way again. So he gave Ronaldo what he requested, which is to move to another club. Ronaldo had lots of offers from many teams including to return to Man United. So the President looked at the potential buyers, and Ronaldo chose Juventus from them. So Ronaldo-Juventus contract was concluded in a mutual agreement. Everybody was happy. All parties were satisfied. Real Madrid even blessed Ronaldo and wished him luck. However they didn't want to sell him. But They had to, because he wanted go.

Well as a Barca supporter, I'm happy that guy is gone. He really knows how to score goals.

It is, more especial when you don't have a better player than him. The only person you can rely on when selling Ronnie is Messi, but we can't have Messi even Neymar can't close the gap
