    Why you must let him go.............

    I did not see it first hand, but seen subsequent reports now saying that Ronaldo does not know what to say publically anymore, and that its a cast including his family and agent who are the driving force to making the move.

    Now as a Liverpool fan, not sure I want to step in and defend Ronaldo or anything to do with Man U, but you've got to think about what maybe going on behind the scenes and who is using who. I've no doubt that Ronaldo wants to play in Spain, and for Real Madrid. But, I'm wondering if the timing is all about money, and the potential huge transfer fee. Question is, who really benefits the most if he goes to Real? Who gets a piece of that transfer fee? Who gets a piece of his new salary? and, who gets a piece of his image rights, which are a huge driving in football business today?
