Ronaldo reveals Madrid pride

12 Jun 2009 - 07:27:21

Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed his pride at his impending "historic" £80million transfer from Manchester United to Real Madrid.

The Portuguese star is set to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms before completing his world record switch to Spain.

Ronaldo has made no secret of his desire to play for Real and the 24-year-old winger is delighted that his dream is now set to become a reality.

"I have had my time at Man United. It's time to look forward and £80million is quite a sum of money. This deal is historic," he said.

"It's flattering when two of the top teams in the world want you to play for them.

"Now I can look forward to Real Madrid and a new stage in my career.

"I learned of the deal here (on holiday) in LA and heard from my people that United had accepted."

Meanwhile, Ronaldo does not expect a minor hernia problem to disrupt the smooth running of his transfer.

"I do not require surgery. The hernia is nothing to worry about," he added.

"However, I have also been told that Madrid want to have a medical team look at me as expected."
