It will interesting to see if United spends the money or uses it to pay Glazer back the hundreds of millions they owe (don't get me started on their shady business practices).

If United buys nobody they will still be good but could get passed by Liverpool and Chelsea (Id love to include Arsenal but Im not so sure). If they use that cash to buy say Ribery and Benzema look for another EPL title and strong Champs League run ... they still have a great defense.

it's different. This money isn't going to Ronaldo, it's going to Man U.
damn. I still think Barcelona will be better.

WITH David Villa, Kaka and Ronaldo... I don't think so. We got arguably 3 of the top 10 players in soccer right now.

Barcelona>Real Madrid

Why? because they have proven they can win with their additions and until Real can prove they can with great players they are not better.

Exactly. Real Madrid is like the Washington Skins. Just addin' superstars doesn't always work...you gotta have them play together as a TEAM.

Seems Ferguson finally got fed up with him, as he did with Beckham.

Is moving from Man Utd to Real a step forwards or backwards? I suspect backwards.

Sorry, but if you have to ask yourself that question, then you don't know much about soccer. Real Madrid is to soccer, as the New York Yankees is to baseball. Simply the greatest most successful soccer team in the world. Its every player's dream to play for them at some point in their career's.
I'm half-Portuguese & I would have preferred to see him stay at Man U. But his salary is reportedly off the chart...Something like 15M Euros a season or 21M USD
Remember this is not the NFL nor NBA nor MLB, its soccer & that type of salary is like having 30M a season in american sports. A-Rod territory

Please don't question my knowledge of 'soccer' as you call it. I still claim this is a move backwards in footballing terms. Real have had their golden years (did they lose 6-0 to Barca this season?), maybe more to come, but Man Utd is a true powerhouse at the moment. Man Utd have not sold a player who has gone on to better things for many years: Beckham, Van Nistelrooy, Stam, Veron, etc.
Cristiano just got paid.
