Ronaldo targets move to Madrid but don't worry United fans - it's only his latest fashion boutique
26 March 2009 12:38
Guess where Cristiano Ronaldo is apparently planning to open a new fashion boutique? Madrid.The Manchester United star, who already has two stores trading under his brand name 'CR7' in Madeira and Lisbon, will take his fashion empire to the Spanish capital, according to sports newspaper Marca.
Flagship: Ronaldo's first store opened in Madeira last summer
Now wouldn't that be a coincidence, seeing as the Portugal winger has made no secret of his wish to play for Real Madrid.
Reports in Spain also suggest the Madrid branch of the franchise will boast the name 'CR9' as, even if Ronaldo were to join the Bernebeu club, he would have little chance of prizing the number seven shirt from Raul.
Ronaldo, 24, opened the first CR7 store in his home town of Madeira last summer, giving the shop to one of his older sisters, Elma, to run.
A further store was launched in the Portuguese city of Lisbon, and now further expansions are planned.
The boutiques sell men's and women's clothes and accessories (albeit of a very WAG and footballer nature) and Ronaldo's CR7 website suggests there are plans afoot to open further stores in Paris, Milan, Madrid, London, Berlin, Prague, Tokyo and Los Angeles. Manchester, sadly, misses out.
Victoria Beckham, eat your heart out.
