Real Madrid as presently composed are too good to be signing new players!
This expresses the sentiments of former president Ramon Calderon who initiated Ronaldo’s transfer from Manchester united to Real Madrid in 2009.
Calderon made this states in May while speaking with Goal. He declared that the current squad managed by Zinedine Zidane is balanced and strong in all aspects of the game.
“I think we have a team which is very, very strong,” he told Goal. “I don’t think we need any players. I wouldn’t sign anyone. I think the substitutes have been playing very well. In some matches, only two starters played in the line-up alongside the substitute players and still they played well. I don’t think there is a need to sign anyone.”
Calderon is impressed with the way Zidane has deployed Ronaldo in the attack and believed the Portuguese is the best player in the world with another Balon d’Or a foregone conclusion.
“He will always be one of the favourites to win the Ballon d’Or as he has proven to be a fantastic player. He is scoring lot of goals and is now playing inside the box.
“I think it has been a wise decision from Zidane, who decided to put him in the box. Let’s hope that he can help us win another title. I hope he will finish his career in Spain.
“It was difficult for me to sign him in 2008 with Manchester United not letting him go. We had an agreement to buy him the next season for £80 million. I could say I was the one who signed Ronaldo for Real Madrid.”
Real Madrid has now gone ahead to win LaLiga and successfully defended their European crown on Saturday against a more fancied Juventus. Los Blanco dominated the match in the second half to hand the Turin team their fourth consecutive loss in the UEFA Champions League final.
