Real turn focus on Ronaldo

09 June 2009 08:33
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is set to redouble his efforts to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United following his club's capture of Kaka. Perez made the Brazil star his number one transfer target after returning to office at the Spanish giants last month and Kaka completed his £59million move from AC Milan on Monday. But despite suggesting last week that he would not jeopardise his relationship with United to sign Ronaldo, Perez has now admitted that the reigning World and European footballer of the year is his new target. Real angered United last summer following a public, but ultimately fruitless, pursuit of their prize asset. "We're always thinking about great players, Cristiano Ronaldo and (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic are among other great players around the world," confirmed Perez. "We all know that these are players that we would like but they all can't come. "Ronaldo is a great player who we'd like to bring to the club, but first we have to speak to Manchester United because the important thing is for us to maintain a good rapport with everyone."
