Cristiano Ronaldo registers CR9 as trademark
He’s going – deal with it
Every time one of these little clues emerges we get Man Yoo fans in denial dismissing them. I’m looking forward to the comments on the day I write about C-Ron signing a contract at Real Madrid (“Just because he has signed a contract at another club doesn’t mean he’s leaving. Find some proper news.”).
Alas United fans, the evidence is starting to pile up now. Following the revelation that the Ferrari-crasher is taking Spanish lessons, Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent has trademarked the magic combination of letters and numbers CR9. Quite why C-Ron would want to do away with his CR7 brand is a mystery. It’s not like he plays for a club where the existing number seven is an institution, like Raul at Real Madrid for instance.
It is rumoured that Real have promised C-Ron the number 9 shirt which currently belongs to the probably outgoing Javier Saviola. The CR9 copyright extends to merchandising and the name of a bar or restaurant within Portugal. CR9 was registered by Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes at the National Institute of Industrial Property in Lisbon.
Perhaps the biggest winners here are street sellers with knock-off ‘Ronaldo 9’ kits lurking in warehouses from the Fat Ronaldo years.
