Real waiting for Ronaldo signal
Saturday, 21 June 2008

Ronaldo is currently concentrating on Portugal's Euro 2008 bidReal Madrid have confirmed they are waiting for Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo to reveal his intentions over where his future lies, reports BBC.

The Premier League champions want to keep the Portugal captain, whose contract at Old Trafford runs to 2012.

But the 23-year-old will not decide on his future until after Euro 2008.

"As soon as he says he wants to play for Real Madrid, there will be conversations," Madrid official Miguel Angel Arroyo told newspaper Marca.

Arroyo, who is Madrid's director general of the presidency, continued: "We would willingly reach an agreement with Manchester United if it is possible, if they want to sell and if the price was affordable."
Madrid coach Bernd Schuster added on Cope radio station: "We are left hanging on a little because of what is happening in the European Championships.

"At the moment, there is a lot of speculation, but that is normal."

Ronaldo insists he will not talk about where his future lies until Portugal's involvement in Euro 2008 is over.

Portugal face Germany in the tournament's first quarter-final on Thursday.

Manchester United have already reported Real Madrid to world governing body Fifa over their public courtship of Ronaldo, although the organisation decided to take no formal action.
