Cristiano Ronaldo set to join Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to join to Real Madrid during the summer for a world-record transfer fee of £75m according to reports in The Guardian. The world footballer of the year is said to be talks over a deal which will see him swap Old Trafford for the Bernabeu.

Despite Sir Alex Ferguson insisting that he wouldn't "sell a virus" to Real Madrid recent reports claim that negotiations between the Portugal winger's representatives and the La Liga club are at a late stage. Ronaldo's reticence over the proposed transfer has also been identified as proof that the 24-year-old will leave the Premier League at the end of the season.

With Ferguson reported to be set to walk away from Old Trafford if the Glazer family decide to cash in on their prime asset, this summer's transfer activity could be a defining moment in the history of Manchester United.
