It seems that Calderon has no shame. Real Madrid’s president, after months of obviously desperate efforts to land Ronaldo, has got the cheek to claim they are just spectators.

It’s not the first time he says that it’s nothing to do with Real Madrid, it’s something between the player and Manchester United.

‘Madrid are just spectators in this soap opera,’ Calderon said.

‘At the moment Manchester United and the player are in an argument and Madrid are waiting and we can’t do any more for the time being.’

It’s like saying the scriptwriter has nothing to do with how the movie unfolds. It was of course Real Madrid who engineered everything that happened, they ordered Marca and AS to lead the pursuit of Ronaldo and they contacted Ronaldo’s agent.

AS now claims that Ronaldo will demand to move to Real and will tell the club that it’s non-negotiable. Even our dear Portuguese would not have the nerve and the ego to do such a thing so I’m not worried that it’s true.

It would be worth showing Calderon’s comments to Daniel Levy: he would see what IS hypocrisy, what IS tapping up. Fergie has not made a single comment in public about Dimitar Berbatov – not a single one, for the Swedish fansite revealed their mistake. This maddening smugness and arrogance is what sets Real Madrid apart – they are the most despicable club ever.
