Cristiano Ronaldo hopes to meet Barcelona at the Bernabeu for the Champions League final this year. What else is on Cristiano Ronaldo’s wishlist? “That I have no more injuries and the ability to help Madrid win everything that they participate in.”
Well CR9 certainly has the backing of his countryman to overachieve at Madrid. Jose Mourinho confidently declard that “Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the world” overlooking Lionel Messi, who has just won every individual acclodae he could. Come to think of it, he’s also won every team accolade he could as well! Mourinho also said in the same interview that he wishes to return to England someday. Whether they want him back there, still reamins uncertain.
Alas, Real Madrid’s defensive problems have raised its ugly head again. With Pepe out, the Galacticos are desperately searching for a replacement. They have enquired about Ivanovic, but if Chelsea don’t budge, Manchester Ubited’s Nemanja Vidic is the next target. So that brings the January transfer targets to a total of 5 – Aguero, Villa, Rooney (in that order, remember), Ivanovic and/or Vidic. If it was any other team, I’d say it’s ridonk. But irs Real, anything can happen.
Well, atleast Christoph Metzelder is being realistic. He said in an interview that he doesn’t think that he is likely to renew his contract with Real, and that its time for him to move on to another club. He also said:
“Guti is always with a smile, it brings good atmosphere to the dressing room.” Well, well, well. I guess ols Guti isn’t the trouble maker everyone makes him out to be.
After the Christmas break, Madrid returned to training, and Pellegrini was only without Diarra (AFCON) and Pepe (injury). They face Osasuna this weekend.
