Cristiano Ronaldo is the guy who charges the hopes of winning the Euro 2008 for the Portugal National Football Team. With his awesome speed and powerful kick and with great skill, Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world, making a great forward line in Manchester United with Wayne Rooney. Early in his career he was considered a troublemaker, but recently he’s grown up and is becoming one of the most respected players in the world. In 2007, he was chosen third best player in the world by FIFA and second best by France Football.   In 2008 he got a contract to play for Real Madrid. On Thursday, Manchester United, the English Premier League champion, announced that it had accepted €94 million, or $131.5 million, to sell Ronaldo to Real Madrid — the highest transfer fee in soccer. The move comes three days after Real Madrid tied up its €65 million bid for the Brazilian star Kaká from A.C. Milan.Real Madrid will now negotiate terms with Ronaldo, a 24-year-old Portuguese midfielder. The Real Madrid president, Florentino Pérez, said he expected to reach agreement in a few days, and Pérez is known as an executive who gets his man.
