Imagine how many hundreds of thousands of words were wasted discussing the possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo moving from Man United to Real Madrid this summer. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if the word count went into the millions as the story was the biggest tease from June through August.
While the episode appears to be over and Ronaldo has admitted to the Portugese press that he’ll be at Manchester United this season, very little has been mentioned about the unsung heroes at Old Trafford and that’s the Glazer family.
The American owners could have easily taken the money and run. The transfer fee would have been enormous. The player would have been pleased to leave, and many fans would have said good riddance. Despite this, the Glazers stood firm and refused to allow the player to leave, focusing on the player’s contract and even going against the wishes of FIFA President Sepp Blatter.
Manchester United and the Premier League are better places for having Ronaldo stay, and all credit needs to go to the Glazer family.
