Cristiano Ronaldo signs new deal at Man Utd

By Chris V. Thangham     Apr 13, 2007 in Sports
Cristiano Ronaldo agrees to stay in Manchester United Football Club for another 5 years.
Just as the Sir Alex Ferguson, Manager of Manchester United, predicted, Cristiano Ronaldo has signed a new five-year contract with Premiership leaders Manchester United. Many thought Ronaldo will jump to Spanish league Clubs such as Real Madrid and Barcelona, but he made his decision to stay at Manchester United for the next five years. This will be great news for Manchester United Fans and the Club.
Cristiano Ronaldo is extremely happy with the decision of staying in Manchester United for five more years.
I am delighted. I spoke with Sir Alex Ferguson about my future and everyone knew that I wanted to stay," he said.
"I am very happy at the club and I want to win trophies and hopefully we will do that this season.
Sir Alex Ferguson is happy with the news also and said Ronaldo has been always happy at the Club and that is the best club for him. And predicts that he will become one of Manchester United's great players.
Ronaldo was supposed to be a replacement for another Manchester United great, David Beckham, had to go through lot of criticisms early but has blossomed into a great player. He has been fantastic this season scoring and assisting goals for Manchester United, which are one step closer to winning the treble of Champions League, the Premiership and the FA Club titles.
Some Sports journalists say he may win the Player of the Year award in the Premier League this year.
Ronaldo joined United from Sporting Lisbon for £12m in August 2003, on a five-year contract which he extended by a further two years in November 2005.
I am not a Manchester United Fan, but I agree with Ronaldo's decision to stay with Manchester United Club, he has more room to thrive in this club than Real Madrid or Barcelona which has a number of star players. He will be lost in the crowd, in Manchester he will really shine, bad news for Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and other clubs.
