Transfer: Why Man United did not want to sell Ronaldo to Real Madrid

Former Real Madrid President, Ramon Calderon has claimed that Manchester United did not want to sell their superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid in 2009.

The Portugal International went on to become the most iconic signing in the history of Los Blancos.

Ronaldo completed a then-world record €94 million move from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009.

At that point, Ronaldo was the reigning Ballon d’Or winner and among the very best in the English top-flight league.

United, managed by Sir Alex Ferguson, were not easily convinced to sell their prized asset..

In a recent interview via Madrid Xtra, Calderon said, “It wasn’t very difficult, he wanted Real Madrid. It was more difficult to convince Manchester.

“Logically, they didn’t want him to leave. Thanks to the player’s will and the commitment made by both sides in December 2008, the deal was completed at the end of the season.”
