Real Madrid’s record goalscorer
admits a pledge from his
former manager influenced his
decision to move to Old
Trafford in 2003 Cristiano
Ronaldo has revealed that his
move to Manchester United
was sealed after Sir Alex
Ferguson promised to play him
in half of the games during his
first season at Old Trafford.

Real Madrid’s record scorer
joined United at the age of 18
and went on to win three
Premier League titles as well as
the Champions League during
his time in England.

Ronaldo was also close to
joining Arsenal before his move
to United but Ronaldo admits it
was Ferguson’s pledge that
influenced his decision.

“With United I have a great
passion,” Ronaldo told a press
conference in London.

“What Jorge did for me at 18
with the words of Ferguson
was a dream. To play in
Sporting and move was “wow,
what is that?
“When Ferguson wanted me
and said I’d play 50 per cent of
the games that was
unbelievable. I took that
decision because Jorge helped
me. The last word from
Ferguson was key also.”
