Don't be silly, if eventually Manchester sells Ronaldo because they can't handle the pressure from Real, do you also think that makes United a "feeder" club?
United more than proved they are no feeder club.
Ther rejected a 55m bid from Real for Ronaldo, Ronaldo wanted to leave but United blocked the move.
United sold Beckham, Van Nistelrooy and Heinz to Madrid because they wanted to and were old players.
Real can't compete with the Premiership now.
They have sold arguably their best player to Manchester City for 33m at age 23.
What does that make Madrid?
I think you need to realize what happened on September 1st.
Manchester City are now by far the richest club in world football.
According to reports them made combined bids of over 150m for 6 players in 12 hours and managed to land Robhino.
Their number 1 target in the January transfer window is Ronaldo and they are saying we think it may take a bid of 120m english pounds to land him, this is not a problem for us.
If they bid 120m for Ronaldo, I'm sure they will get him and this is just the start.
They also have Torres and a number of other world class targets in their sights.
They don't care about paying over inflated prices.
One report claims that every dollar increase in the price of oil earns the family an extra $500m dollars A DAY.
According to reports they have family funds in the region of trillions of pounds available.
This makes Chelsea, Madrid and United small fish now, if its true.
I wouldn't be surprized to see Kaka, Torres and Messi at City within 1 year the way these new guys are talking and acting in 1 day.
Right now though, I'm not too worried.
With a strike force of Berbatov, Ronaldo, Rooney and Tevez at United.
Its you lot that should be worried.
