BIRMINGHAM – After some time ago Arrigo Sacchi claimed had wanted to bring Cristiano Ronaldo when he was coached AC Parma. Now other recognition came from the former Birmingham City owners David Sullivan.
That he thinks happened before Cristiano docked at Old Trafford in June 2003. It was the man who is now the sole owner of West Ham United’s claim to almost get CR7 from Sporting Lisbon.
With an agreement that was almost reached the intersection, suddenly Sir Alex Ferguson came with the offer of 17.5 million euros. The large amount of money on the table Sporting Lisbon makes them decide to release Cristiano Red Devils rather than along the Blues.
“Before he joined Manchester United, we bid with six million pounds. And in the end Ronaldo prefers United than us, “said Sullivan told Soccer AM, Sunday (12/27/2014).
“When the negotiations we almost see the meeting point. When he first joined the United many doubt the shadows. At that time he was not a superstar like now, “he added.
Well, now CR7 also has no costumed Red Manchester. He was enjoying one of the best periods throughout his professional football career at Real Madrid together with Carlo Ancelotti.
