Cristiano Ronaldo was officially unveiled yesterday at Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu stadium. United’s departed talisman did not forget about his former club though, despite realising his boyhood dream.

‘I have to say thank you to all supporters, the boss, friends and team-mates – I’ve been there six years and have friends there. But people will understand and respect my decision.

‘The great challenge now, and dream, is to play at Real Madrid but I’m going to miss many, many things in Manchester.

‘That’s life. This is my new home, my new club and I’m going to give 100 per cent for this club.

‘I have made my childhood dream a reality, which was to play for Real Madrid.’


Good luck for that.
