I like honest people. Dolores Aveiro, mother of a certain Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro (you might have heard of him) does not like English clubs, she admitted.

Ronaldo’s mum added she knew she must like English clubs as her son is playing for United but nothing would thrill her more than seeing Ronaldo play for Real Madrid.

‘Hopefully, one day he will go to Madrid. They are my favourite team, the best in the world,’ she told AS.

‘If the day came for Cristiano to leave England, then it would please me if he went to Madrid.’

‘I would not like to die without seeing my son playing there. It won’t happen now, but perhaps in two years …

‘If he was to move to Madrid, I would join him there. That city enchants me …’


I had said it before: I know Ronaldo will leave us one day. However, it would be madness if he did in the next three years as he is on the peak of his game, at the best club, with the best possible manager who can get the most out of him.

Her mother’s opinion probably counts a lot with him but that’s no reason to leave United while everything is perfect here for him.
