Should Manchester United give Cristiano Ronaldo more money?

Various newspapers this morning report that Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United chief executive David Gill are heading for an argument over Cristiano Ronaldo.

Sir Alex wants to offer the Portuguese winger a new deal to ensure he stays at the club and doesn’t re-open the Real Madrid saga, but chief executive David Gill does not want to increase the midfielder’s already substantial wages of £120,000 per week.

This is a tough one to call. It would obviously be in United’s interest to keep Ronaldo who looks like he might be getting back towards his form of last season, but can it possibly be right to increase his salary from the already obscene level in the current economic climate?

What do United fans think? Should he be given more or should the club cash in and let him go?

Heck NO! I feel he is overpaid. He is not a total footballer because a team player he is NOT. Sure he is fancy and scores goals but if others had as many chances as he gets to score (free shots, penalties) they would too. In many ocassions he could help others score but he holds the ball too long or takes shots that end up in the crowd. Lately he falls too easy, sulks and complains and of course Ferguson is there to back up his gimmicks. Defensively he sucks. I’d say trade him, get the most money, there… Read more »

I agree, he is rather selfish sometimes and doesn’t always put the team first. When he is on fire that is a good thing for United but so far this season he hasn’t helped as much. Rooney gets back and helps defend more than Ronaldo. Ronaldo doesn’t deserve any more money he is already a rich footballer. You get paid vast sums of money to play a game the whole world loves, that is enough.

He is Mr Man u. He deserves a pay rise. For the front runner for Ballon d’or his present pay is puny. His pay could be doubled by Real Madrid who need him badly. I think he will go there if Man u fail to meet him on a pay rise. He doesn’t pay for Arsenal anyway.

When I play Football Manager, I always use FMM to lower Ronaldo’s wage to £80,000

Yes he is a great player, but surely it shouldn’t be about the money. To say his financial future is safe would be laughable. Play for the club and the coach who unearthed you at the age of 17.

I guess its say for unit fans.All united fans and independent soccer admirer’s would agree with me on the fact that Cristiano ronaldo is infact the best available on the planet.As in the first 2 comments, its pity that people are not ready accept this fact.They see cristiano scoring freekicks and penalties only!.So clear up your mind first and ten think,you may get a better picture.Talking about his payrise , its quite evident that losing ronaldo may prove disasters for Manu next season. Its felt right now , united is a supreme power with ronaldo,roney and berbetov up front .But… Read more »

if Man U can not afford Ronaldo, Madrid will be glad to have him. It is as simple as that. He may be overpaid already, but the point is someone is even willing to better his current wage and that is strong enough to lure Ronaldo. To say that he is not a total footballer and all the criticism i have read is unfair for someone Ferguson himself believe was the man behind Man U’s dream run last season. Sir Ferguson is right, lets pump the money and keep our wizard AND WE WILL BE IN A POSITION TO REPEAT… Read more »

ronaldo is good but cannot be in man.u 4 ever.There are many undiscoverd better talents more than ronaldo.Its only when he gives way,u can discover others.He should not hold man.u at ransom for payrise.He is well paid and should know 120,000 is no joke.If he insists,man.u should cash in and let him go.NO PLAYER IS INDISPENSIBLE.

Hell NO. a mater a fact he was to leave before the season even started, i don’t know why he is still at man utd. his loyalty is not there and if you can see, the ronaldo that i know is no longer at man utd. yes he’s coming of injury but that passion he used to have for the game is not there any more. Right now i CAN’T see ronaldo as a Manchester Player.
