It looks like pretty boy Cristiano Ronaldo is set to leave Manchester United for a world record ten bags of potatoes and his contract includes all the spray tan he can manage.
In a strange way though it could actually affect Arsenal...............
First things first, I'd like to ask the question; Are Manchester United the feeder club to Real Madrid? Does Fergie have a deal with Real Madrid that he grooms players until they are ready to join the Spanish club?
In recent years David Beckham, Ruud van Nistlerooy, Gabriel Heinze and now Cristiano Ronaldo have all left Manchester United for Madrid and I have to pose that question.
United fans are adamant that their club is the biggest and the best in the world but it clearly isn't. Real Madrid have the pulling power of George Clooney using Lynx deodorant and United fans need to realise that.
For the last few years I've heard that Arsenal are a selling club. Maybe in some ways that is true but we have reason. We have just built a new stadium. What is Manchester United's reason for continually selling their best players to Real Madrid other than they are actually Madrid's feeder club?
Anyway, enough about them.
Madrid buying Ronaldo, and Kaka, surely means they have to cut back on costs somewhere so I assume they will be looking to sell some assets.
They may be able to sell Ruud van Nistlerooy as a racing horse and even Lassana Diarra as a Flipper lookalike but realistically they wont fetch much.
Thats why I ask; How about Arjen Robben?
I don't like the personality of the guy but there is no doubt that he is a quality player and a natural winger, something Arsenal lack in the squad. Perhaps then we use Arshavin as a second striker or even put Theo Walcott upfront.
Just a thought.
Keep it Goonerish...............
