Manchester United have announced on their official website that they will report Real Madrid to FIFA if they do not stop pursuing Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese captain has been linked with a move to the Spanish capital all summer with Marca the principal culprit in the transfer saga.
The Spanish newspaper runs several stories everyday regarding Cristiano Ronaldo which are believed to be printed with input from Real Madrid officials, according to Goal.com. Now Manchester United have had enough of Real Madrid trying to unsettle their player.
Manchester United has watched with growing irritation the comments attributed to Real Madrid over their alleged desire to sign Cristiano Ronaldo.
The facts are:
1) The player is on a long-term contract and his registration is held by Manchester United
2) The player is not for sale
The club will have no alternative but to report Real Madrid to the world governing body, FIFA, if it continues to behave in this totally unacceptable fashion. These public attempts to unsettle the player are completely against the regulations and the club will not tolerate them any longer.
In addition, the club is certain that they are a distraction for the Portuguese national squad as they prepare for the European Championships. No-one should be in any doubt that Manchester United will do everything in its power to keep its best players.

Now it looks like Real Madrid are either going to make an offer which could well include Ramos, Robinho, Casillas, some more players and a few bags of cash for the winger or close their mouths and focus their attention on a player that they could actually buy.
