Makélélé: £80m is worth it for a player like Ronaldo

Sunday, June 14, 2009

Ex-Real Madrid midfielder Claude Makélélé believes his former employers' £80 million purchase of Cristiano Ronaldo is worth it.

The Spanish giants have agreed a record-breaking deal for the Portuguese superstar with Manchester United, and Makélélé has expressed his views on the move.

He told "My former club needed this transfer to tell the world that they are still the most famous team on the planet.

"I think they have gone backwards in the last few years when you compare them to Barcelona and Manchester United.

"People, me included, will say it is a lot of money, but it is worth it for a player of that quality.

"If Florentino Pérez has invested that money, it is because he feels he can recoup it. And I think Ronaldo is worth it."
