Zidane turns up in Vienna, has a run around then talks Ronaldo.
Former French football legend Zinedine Zidane was in Vienna this week, running an Adidas Predator Youth Clinic where a number of youngsters were given the chance to play with Zidane.
Famed for wearing a pair of Gold Predators during the 2006 world cup, in which the great Zidane was sent off for headbutting Marco Materazzi in the final, Zidane now only laces his football boots up for promotional appearances and testimonial matches.
Following Zidane gracing the small pitch with the kids, he was inevetibaly asked about the Cristiano Ronaldo transfer situation. He’s a relevant source of information as Zidane Zidane is still the costliest player in history when Real Madrid paid Juventus £45.8m for his contract in 2001, although Ronaldo may just surpass that if the move goes through.
Every time Madrid want good players they get them. He’s had a great season, and he’s a Champions League winner, and if he wants to play there, then he can.
If he goes to Madrid, it will be a big amount, but Madrid is ready to pay far more than they paid for me. This will actually lift a weight from my shoulders. Hopefully they will pay more for Ronaldo than they did for me.
