Tension at Real Madrid camp is growing as their two big dominant figures Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho are unprepared to extend their stay at the Bernabeu. Reports from England suggest that Manchester United are preparing a complex £55m bid which includes two of their players in order to bring Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.Ronaldo to United Possible?
Manchester United ready to swap both Javier Hernandez and their goal keeper De Gea for Ronaldo. But the question is do Real Madrid need these two players?
Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain are present center forwards for Real and neither is producing the kind of output that Cristiano Ronaldo brings to the club.
Though Javier Hernandez aka Chicharito may have less technical skills than the above mentioned strikers, but his positioning and goal poaching skills are considered to be one of best in the world. He had converted 26.7% of chances, means one in four of his shots end up in net.
The 22-year-old stopper put in a reminder of his natural goal keeping talent with an impressive display against Real in the Champions League last-16 first leg at the Bernabeu.
But his consistency is a big question. Real Madrid still consider him to be long term replacement for Casillas.
So is this bid enough to secure the signature of Ronaldo? It still looks bit short as Madrid will not sell Ronaldo for anything less than 100 Million. But if United can pull this off, what a signing that would be!
