Unfortunately, I think so. Indeed Cristiano Ronaldo is a good player but the bid is a little to high for him. Anyway this is good for Manchester United. Because they are going to get a big amount of transfer fee. Some people may think that this will affect the performance of Man United. To speak the truth I don’t think so. It is sorry to say that player like Cristiano is available in the market.

Of course they paid too much for him, he's still a human being!
What is wrong with these people paying 100 million dollars for a man all he does is run after a ball. I'm not saying football is dull but seriously that's just insane.

How can they pay so much money after what happened last year? There should be a limited even for athletes

I do not believe that the amount is too much. I don't think players should be sold for such a fee but (as a manutd fan) considering Real Madrid's marketing capabilities they will easily get that money back. For example, in the few years that Beckham joined Real Madrid they made $250 Million off him.
It is also funny that Newcastle is being sold for 100 million pounds...only 20 million more than the cost of one player!

Considering the recession the money paid is mad. I hope the banks that grant real madrid such huge loans will also grant loans to people who own small businesses.

Real madrid are gonna kill this game. Somebody should talk to PEREZ

Therefore the club schirts so expensive and then the children cry that they do not get a t-schirt .
They would have to invest more in their own youth.

In the clubs there are youth players from other clubs achieved, and they get a compensation to play, while players from their own youth do not get paid.
So the players of their own youth are discriminated .
And then they say that the youth are not motivated.

Bye bye from Belgium.

Real Madrid only excells at the ridiculous. Another period of mega-money buys will probably give them some prizes, but it won't earn them any respect with anyone. They should look at Barcelona and how well that club is run. It's not a mere coincidence that Barcelona was the first team in Spain to win a treble. But I know the bozoz at Real will never think; they will only spend, spend, spend and not just ruin their own club, but football in general. Credit to Arsene Wenger though for not wanting be a part of Madrilean shenanigans and choosing to build a great club and great team at Arsenal.

The money is too much,how an they pay such a huge amount of money for a player,they are killing football.Fifa should intervene.

i think the money used to signed christian ronaldo as a player worth the amount and he should play for the money and bring trophy good for ream madrid, and create good image for the club just as izizu did for the club and he should realise to help the needing

no i dont think so as a man u, fan we train them had and make sure we invest in oyr players to try and let them stay for a life span like Gigs and many more we usualy dont let our stars go but with this young boys attitude he WAS WITH THE BUY. And yep we are getting back liners now.

Money ain't a thing, just numbers and its here just to replace the batter system, if he got talent to entertain and put millions of people in a non boring state of mind, then he deserves it.

This is a finacial madness on the part of real madrid,inspite,of this worldwide meltdown,however,Ronaldo should be careful cos money is not everything.
This is a big challenge to FIFA
