Cristiano Ronaldo today shocked the world of football by buying Real Madrid and then putting the entire squad on the transfer list.
There is only enough room for one ego in this dressing room, and that is ME, Ronaldo was quoted as saying yesterday.
It is thought that the world record transfer of Gareth Bale was simply too much for the portugese international's ego to handle. Even though Real gave him a massive payrise to try and stabilise the situation, it was this that actually allowed Ronaldo to buy the club outright.
Asked how he intended to fulfill Real's fixture list with just himself in the team he said,
Yes it may be a little more difficult, but I am the greatest player the universe has ever seen and the sheer amount of goals I will now score will be enough destroy all opposition
Ronaldo also revealed that Carlo Ancelotti is to be relieved of his duties as mananger so that Ronaldo can manage himself.
