Manchester United accept potentially world record-breaking £80 million bid
I’m not watching Sky Sports News at the moment, but I imagine their news ticker might have exploded by now. Manchester United have confirmed they have accepted an £80 million bid from Real Madrid to sign Cristiano Ronaldo. A statement on the club’s official website confirms this.
The statement reads: “At Cristiano’s request – who has again expressed his desire to leave – and after discussion with the player’s representatives, United have agreed to give Real Madrid permission to talk to the player. Matters are expected to be concluded by 30 June.”
