According to football.co.uk a Glazer`s spokesman has stated that the decision to sell Ronaldo was made by SAF for `footballing reasosn` and that all the money will be made available for new players. Not sure how reliable this source is but hopefully SAF will be allowed to bring in the players he wants.
Everyone knows why he went. He wanted to go last year and was convinced to stick it out a year. United had no choice but to sell, you cant keep a player hostage . Just be thankful you got so much money for him despite his desire to quit united
