Ronaldo lifts lid on decision to leave Man Utd for Real Madrid

Ronaldo lifts lid on decision to leave Man Utd for Real Madrid

The four-time Ballon d'Or victor has given up a replica of one of his trophies to help raise funds for Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The Ballon d'Or trophy is recognised as one of the highest personal accolades a player can receive in the game.

It was bought by Israel's richest person, billionaire Idan Ofer, who spent a massive £530,000 to acquire the replica. Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola were also a part of the event, raising €30,000 euros.

Gerrard 'a big, big believer' in under-pressure Liverpool boss Klopp
For now, the club can-just barely- survive on good play while everyone waits for the results to come. Liverpool are better than their results of the past month.


Cristiano Ronaldo and Rio Ferdinand shared a dressing room for six years at Manchester United, playing at opposite ends of a team that won three league titles and a Champion's League.

And on Wednesday the original replica Ballon d'Or donated by the Real Madrid star was sold to an anonymous donor at the Foundation's "Art of Wishes" auction at the Dorchester Hotel, London. Ronaldo is favourite to win the 2017 Ballon d'Or though, having inspired Real Madrid to their first ever European Cup and La Liga double since 1958.

Ronaldo himself may need a few tips off his oldest child as he is struggling for goals in La Liga now. It is one of the most prestigious awards in football.

Those funds will all go to Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Fernandinho believes Manchester City have the financial might to sign Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, but he does not feel such superstars fit into the club's philosophy.
