Real Madrid Transfer Rumours: 5 Reasons They Need to Sell Cristiano Ronaldo Now

1 of 6

    Real Madrid has a dilemma on their hands, and his name is Cristiano Ronaldo.

    There has been some crazy gossip about superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and what Real Madrid plans on doing with him.

    The speculation involved has fans riled and reporters on the edges of their seats.

    But when looking at Madrid’s situation, its clear the Ronaldo needs to go.

    Money talks, and in the case of selling Cristiano Ronaldo, there is plenty to go around.

    According to “The Sun,” Manchester City wants Ronaldo bad, even willing to pay a cool £150 million for the talent.

    Real Madrid would be losing a phenomenal player, but the money gained would be nothing to sneeze at.

Depth at Wings

    Real Madrid is already well stocked with wingers, and while Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably one of the best in the world, there is enough depth for Real Madrid to deaden the impact of losing him. 

Ronaldo's Main Focus Is to Score

    Nobody likes a ball hog, except when that ball hog is Cristiano Ronaldo there is nothing like him.

    A fantastic dribbler, Ronaldo is one of the most exciting players to watch, and one of the most determined to score.

    While this is a good trait to have, Real Madrid needs a team player that looks beyond personal achievement and gets the job done without relying on crazy dribbling antics. 

Kaka and Ozil Would Pick Up the Slack

    Selling Cristiano Ronaldo may hurt Real Madrid but fellow midfielders Ricardo Kaka and Mesut Ozil are still a force to be reckoned with within the Real Madrid offense.

    Both are outstanding players well above the average footballer. Losing Ronaldo would hurt, but Kaka and Ozil would be there to pick up the slack.

Major Publicity

    Already there have been several publications covering the potential scenarios that could befall Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Love the rumor or hate it, Real Madrid is getting more publicity than ever, and if a deal with Manchester City does happen… Ronaldo may have to ask "What should I do?" a la LeBron James.
