Oh God, It's Back...
Cristiano Ronaldo is apparently headed to Real Madrid, again. Manchester United and Real Madrid have come to a gentleman's agreement that C-Ron is going to the Bernabeu come summer. The deal was supposed be kept on the D-L, but Pedro Trapote, a close associate to Madrid president, Ramon Calderon, has been recorded on a chat with El Mundo as speaking about the unbeknownst pact.
And now that Trapote squealed the deal, the whole gentleman's agreement is being considered null and void in accordance with the gag clause that was agreed upon between the two clubs.
I'm guessing Trapote and Calderon are no longer "close."
